The first event of the new bimonthly Graduate Student Workshop series will take place Monday, January 31, 3:30pm in the Scott Hall Commons, room 105. Susie Hatmaker will workshop her conference paper, "Rural Difference, Modern Desire: Searching for Place Outside of Time." This paper is a study of the ways two specific "folk" figures in Appalachia gained value as the embodiments of difference outside of modernity's timeline and became spiritual resources for discontented cosmopolitan subjects. Hatmaker asks how the ambivalent desires expressed toward the Appalachian figures of "folk authenticity" relate to the changing meaning of nature during modernity in order to trace the limits of liberal progressive thought.
