Upcoming lectures at the University of Houston

Upcoming English lectures could heavily reference Kenneth Burke

On February 4, the University of Houston uploaded an article on their webpage announcing that John Briggs, Professor at University of California, Riverside, will be lecturing mid February. Briggs is Director of the University Writing Program at UCR, and although his primary focus of studies is President Abraham Lincoln and Shakespeare, the announcement shares that his primary use of deconstructing and analyzing the works of both these men, were the philosophies of Kenneth Burke. His lectures as a result could carry heavy themes of Burkean thought and would be intriguing to listen to.

The two day conference occurs on February 11th and 12th, with a concluding dinner February 12th. A link for the tickets can also be found at the link above.
