Join us for a book panel to celebrate the recent publication of Liberal Lives and Activist Repertoires: Political Performance and Victorian Social Reform with author Tracy C. Davis and respondents Deborah Cohen (Buffett Institute for Global Affairs and History), Kennetta Hammond Perry (History), and Angela Ray (Communication Studies). Liberal Lives “traces the strategies of human rights activists to show how world-changing reform movements were shaped by women and men from modest backgrounds who were deeply attuned to the power of performance.” 

Moderators: Elizabeth W. Son (Theatre) and Joshua Chambers-Letson (Performance Studies and Asian American Studies).

A reception will follow the panel. Please RSVP by Feb. 10. 
The first 20 students to RSVP will receive a free copy of the book. 

Presented by the Departments of Theatre and Performance Studies; the Interdisciplinary PhD in Theatre and Drama; and the Alice Kaplan Institute for the Humanities.
