Teresa Gilliams, Ph.D., Albright College associate professor of English and Fulbright Scholar, presented, “Doin’ Too Much: A Black Women Writers’ Recovery Project,” on 10/11/12 in the Gingrich Library.
Gilliams focused her presentation on “recovering, preserving and providing access to important literary texts by African-American writers.” She also presented her book project titled, “Retrievable Wrongs: Reading, Preserving, and Globalizing African American Women’s Writing, 1950-2005.” Gilliams also read texts written by female African-American writers on the topics of slavery and gender and said that she hopes to “expand the ways in which others approach, think about and read black women’s writing.”
Gilliams was awarded a Fulbright Scholar grant to lecture and do research at National and Kapodistrian University of Athens and Aristotle University of Thessaloniki in Greece during the 2011-2012 academic year.
