Adam Dublin Award for Global Multiculturalism

Please join Emma Dulaney for this year's Adam Dublin Award for Global Multiculturalism presentation.

In this presentation, Emma will connect her Honors Rhetoric Thesis, Framing the (Un)Grievable American Citizen, to her Dublin-funded trip to New Orleans, LA. She will discuss the visual public memory of Hurricane Katrina presented in her thesis artifact, Telling Their Stories, and problematize its circulation of black ungrievability and white exceptionalism. In order to close read several of the Telling Their Stories images, Emma will briefly overview relevant critical race, rhetorical, and political theory. Finally, Emma will discuss different Katrina memorials she encountered while in New Orleans and lead a discussion about the broader public memory of Hurricane Katrina, the ethics of witnessing, and the role of the rhetorical critic.
