2:30 – 3:45 PM—Literary Discussion
DILLARD HUMANITIES STUDENTS PRESENT: FOLKLORE IN SOUTHERN DRAMA
This discussion and presentation showcases dramatic literature that emphasizes the use of folklore as a major component of performative text. In The Purification by Tennessee Williams, folklore becomes a driving force that unravels a tale of haunting revenge. Dirt Bleeds, a contemporary fable set in the Louisiana swamps by Carolyn Nur Wistrand, compliments the premise of supernatural forces seeking retaliation. Students from Dillard University’s Theatre Program will perform readings from the two texts in concert. Carolyn Nur Wistrand and Dr. Nancy Dixon, English Professor at Dillard University, will lead this exciting panel.
