It is my pleasure to introduce to you Kerry Wilkes who will be with us Sunday, January 31, 2016. She will bring the message in worship and conduct a workshop following worship on letter writing to our legislators. There are some important bills before the State Representatives and Senate. Kerry will bring us key information impacting the LGBTQ Community and how we can have a voice.
Dr. Kerry Wilkes joined the faculty of Wichita State in 2004. She is associate professor of Spanish and Associate Dean of Graduate School. Dr. Wilkes received her BA in International Studies from Rhodes College; MA in Spanish from Auburn University and PhD in Spanish from the University of Chicago.
Her research/teaching interests include Sixteenth- and Seventeenth-Century Spanish Literature (specifically, the theater of the Spanish Golden Age); Twentieth-Century Spanish Literature; Twentieth-Century Latin American Theater; Ekphrasis; and Performance Studies.
