The University community and the public are invited to this free event.

• Yuqing Wang will give a presentation titled, “K-pop Face-pop: The Surgery Undergoes South Korean Pop Culture,” based on her thesis, “Behind South Korean Cosmetic Surgery,” which was one of the 25 most accessed theses among ProQuest’s two million dissertations and theses in October 2016.

• Patti Cleary will present “Monika Kehoe (1909-2004): Prodigy, Pedagogue, and ‘Pervert,’" a biographical study of Monika Kehoe, an educator and writer whose work examined aging and sexuality. Cleary was selected to present a paper at the Association of Graduate Liberal Studies annual conference in October 2016 and was a 2016 winner of the Callahan Prize.
