Kellie Bond, Walla Walla University associate professor of English and chair of the Department of English, will give the annual WWU Distinguished Faculty Lecture on Sunday, Nov. 8 at 7 p.m. in the Melvin K. West Fine Arts Center Auditorium.
Bond’s lecture, “Outside an Insiders’ Society: Virginia Woolf, James Baldwin, and Resistance to Power,” will focus on the literary periods she studies—modernism and the 20th century. The lecture will journey through the timeless work of Woolf and Baldwin in the context of power and inequality—addressing patriarchy and white supremacy, respectively. Bond will take these two classic literary voices and allow them to speak to our current age.
Bond began teaching at Walla Walla University in 2004. She is the 2010 recipient of the WWU Presidential Award for Excellence in Teaching and the 2011 recipient of the WWU Excellence in Advising Award.
The lecture is free and open to the public. The Melvin K. West Fine Arts Center Auditorium is located at 200 S. College Ave., College Place.
