Congrats to Kathleen Reeves (May 2011) whose article “Bodied Time and Ghosted Narrative in The Body Artist” was published in Concordia University’s Journal of Religion and Culture in September. Kathleen presented the article as a paper at Concordia’s 16th annual Interdisciplinary Graduate Conference “Crossroads and Borders,” in February. She attended the conference with additional assistance from one of Draper’s Travel Grants, which she was the recipient of in November/December 2010.
