John C. Hartsock, Communication Studies Department, gave a panel presentation at the 11th annual conference of the International Association for Literary Journalism Studies, held at the Pontifícia Universidade Católica do Rio Grande do Sul, in Porto Alegre, Brazil. The presentation, “The Banal of the Ideal, the Affirmation of the Banal,” explored how Svetlana Alexievich, who received the Nobel Prize for Literature last year for her literary journalism, assaults the banality of secular mythologies in her reporting on the former Soviet Union.
