Dr. Tsank received her PhD from the University of Iowa. Her talk draws on material from a larger project examining how realist writers use food and the senses to depict immigrant characters and in turn, support constructions (or revisions) of American national identity. Her talk will focus on how Stephen Crane’s Maggie: A Girl of the Streets disrupts traditional sensory hierarchies through Crane’s representation of immigrant bodies, specifically mouths, throats, and teeth.
