Join us for the 2014 WID Distinguished Lecture by Eileen E. Schell In partnership with the University Writing Program Professional Development Committee Gelman Library, Room 702 This presentation examines the ways that racialized rhetorics permeate policy and popular media discourses through two specific and interrelated sites: 1) the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) long-standing discrimination against black farmers and 2) the media firestorm surrounding Shirley Sherrod, a farmer, black activist, and long-time employee of the USDA in Georgia. Sherrod achieved national notoriety when, as a USDA employee, she was baselessly accused of “reverse racism” by blogger/Right-wing pundit Andrew Breitbart. Eileen E. Schell is Associate Professor of Writing and Rhetoric and Faculty Affiliate in Women's and Gender Studies at Syracuse University where she teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in academic writing, creative nonfiction, rhetorical studies, and feminist theory. She is the author of Gypsy Academics and Mother-teachers: Gender, Contingent Labor, and Writing Instruction (Heinemann, 1997) and co-author, with Kim Donehower and Charlotte Hogg, of Rural Literacies (Southern Illinois University Press, 2007).
