Now You See It: WT Lecture Explores Conservatism through Literary Lens

Attending academic discussions seems to be one of the few things that became more accessible during the pandemic. Thanks to West Texas A&M University’s Distinguished Lecture Series, listeners across the High Plains can enjoy live presentations by nationally-recognized scholars covering topics of interest to people of our region. Tomorrow night, March 2nd at 7:00 pm CT, you’re invited to join the latest lecture featuring Dr. Bryan M. Santin as he discusses “the rise of modern conservatism through a literary lens.”

The presentation is titled “Postwar American Fiction and the Rise of Modern Conservatism: The Meaning of Ralph Ellison’s (Near) Invisibility on the Right.” Dr. Santin works as an assistant professor of English at Concordia University—Irvine, and his talk will approach this topic from an  historical and literary angle. Today on High Plains Morning, Dr. Ryan Brooks joined us to discuss the upcoming lecture and encourage HPPR listeners to participate.
