    Dear English Program Faculty and Students,

    I’m writing to inform you of our second Faculty Membership events for a scholar in Composition and Rhetoric to take place Friday, November 12 (rescheduled from October 22). On that day there will be at 2:30 p.m. a more informal seminar (in the Thesis Room, 4406.11) to discuss Prof. Jessica Yood’s published work. To facilitate that discussion, attendees are asked to read recent articles of Professor Yood. Please find the reading on our website: http://web.gc.cuny.edu/English/pages/seminar_reading.html . Prof. Yood will briefly introduce her work in the meeting and then people will be encouraged to ask questions and engage in discussion.

    Professor Yood will give a Faculty Membership Talk later that day, Friday, November 12 at 4:00PM in our lounge, room 4406. Everyone is welcome to attend both events. We particularly urge students and faculty whose own interests are in Composition and Rhetoric to attend the informal seminar.
