-- Thank you to all who joined Dr. Mel Stanfill for lunch and came to hear the talk. Many great discussions were had. Be sure to join us for the next event in the series.
-- Sascha Angermann, master's student, presented research on "Turning Points and Trans(Itioning) Narratives on TV" at the LGBTQ Symposium's research poster session. Sascha spoke with the Purdue Exponent on this research.
-- On October 8-11, 2015, the annual meeting of the American Studies Association convened in Toronto, Ontario. The theme this year "The (Re)production of Misery and the Ways of Resistance," provided ASA members multiple paths for proposing panels and papers and engaging in the work of the Association. Some of our very own American Studies graduate students traveled to Toronto to present on panels. Lily Marsh, Jonathan Freeman, and Jeffrey Wimble all presented papers at this year's meeting. David R. Roediger, President of American Studies Association, gave his presidential address on "Troubling Solidarities: The Promises and Presumptions of Unity from Bacon's Rebellion to Black Lives Matter," in which he spoke about the most recent debates and solidarities that matured in and beyond Ferguson among Black, queer and Palestinian movements. ASA was an intellectually engaging and amazing experience. I hope other American Studies graduate studies will attend next year's meeting in Denver.

In an effort to better highlight and celebrate the wonderful work by American Studies students, faculty, and alumni we are launching Last Friday, a monthly newsletter for our program.
As the name suggests, the newsletter will go out on the last Friday of each month during the academic year, an apt moment to reflect on the events of the past month and signal the activities in upcoming weeks.
