LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) – Jennifer Dawes Adkison, Ph.D., will discuss the unspeakable when she shares her research into depictions of survival cannibalism in narrative and film for the colloquium this Thursday, Nov. 14.

Adkison, associate professor of English and writing at EOU, maintains these portrayals – from Western narratives of the Donner Party survivors to 21st century post-apocalyptic films – reveal a great deal about gnawing fears and provoke deeper thought of key survival choices and ramifications involved.

“Writing (and Filming) the Unspeakable: Depictions of Survival Cannibalism in Literature and Film” begins at 4 p.m. in Ackerman Hall, Room 210. It is free and open to the public and a reception with question and answer session with Adkison will follow.

A list of related resources provided by Pierce Library is available for more in-depth information on this topic. Visit To be added to the colloquium mailing list call 541-962-3508.
