hyperbole for once

InterCcECT is delighted to welcome special guest Professor Ian Balfour for a last minute seminar, “Extreme Austen, or Hyperbole.” Why does a certain rhetoric of excess in Austen tend to get overlooked? We’ll consider some reasons and examples, some easy to read, others not so much.

Join us this coming Tuesday 6 September at 3pm at UIC, in University Hall room 1850 (601 S Morgan St, 18th floor; Blue Line: UIC Halsted).

Also mark your calendars now for another event with a special guest, Professor Alex Galloway, Tuesday 27 September!
