You are warmly invited to a presentation on Tuesday, November 13th by this year's recipients of the Adam Dublin Award for Study of Global Multiculturalism: Kendra Winchester (Rhetoric Studies '18) and Professor Heather Ashley Hayes (Assistant Professor of Rhetoric Studies).
In this presentation, Kendra will connect the work of her Rhetoric thesis project to her Dublin-funded trip to the Southeast branch of the U.S. National Archives in Morrow, GA. There she analyzed the complete archive of the administrative records of the Tuskegee Study of Untreated Syphilis in the Negro Male, an experiment run by the U.S. Public Health Service in rural Alabama from 1929 to 1972. Drawing from her analysis of this archive, Kendra will discuss the discourse of scientific objectivity as it relates to rhetoric used in the Tuskegee study. She will then engage in a discussion of how histories of medicalization and race in America impact ongoing policy, law, and social discourses for African American communities still today.
The presentation will begin at 5:00 p.m. in Olin 129.
