The lightning round is designed to encourage connections: what else holds us together as scholars of literature, culture, media—across periods, forms, genres, theories, and methods? This lightning round is grounded in a single keyword, "Change." Faculty panelists will share a 5-minute presentation linking the keyword to their current scholarly, artistic, curatorial, or other projects. The moderator, audience, and panelists will then participate in a conversation inspired by the connections among panelists.

Panelists: Sarah Cole, Julie Crawford, Brent Hayes Edwards, Frances Negron-Muntaner, Jennifer Wenzel

Moderator: Denise Cruz
