Plesch Member of Jury for Defense of Doctoral Thesis
Professor of Art Véronique Plesch served as a member of the jury for the defense of Augustto Corrêa Cipriani’s doctoral thesis at the Federal University of Minas Gerais, Brazil. In 2018-19, Cipriani (majoring in literary studies with a concentration in literary theory and comparative literature) spent six months at Colby conducting research under Plesch’s supervision. His thesis, “Contemporary Brazilian Writing: Handwriting in the Work of Guilherme Zarvos e Gustavo Speridão,” combines word and image studies, intermediality, and, in particular, graffiti as a framework for considering poems and visual works.
