The Burkett Miller Distinguished Lecture Series presents constitutional attorney Ann Coulter on Monday, October 5, at noon. Coulter will address “Evaluating the Change in American Government” and her speech will be critiqued by UTC faculty Dr. Rebecca Jones with assistance from Dr. Heather Palmer.
Coulter is the author of seven New York Times Best Sellers; she is the legal correspondent for Human Events, writes a popular syndicated column for Universal Press Syndicate and is a frequent guest on many TV shows, including Hannity and Colmes and Wolf Blitzer Reports.
Coulter graduated with honors from the Cornell University School of Arts and Sciences and received her J.D. from the University of Michigan Law School, where she was an editor of The Michigan Law Review. In 2001, she was named one of the top 100 Public Intellectuals by Federal Judge Richard Posner.
Jones and Palmer are professors of English at UTC and also teach in the Women’s Studies program. Jones teaches courses on argumentation studies, rhetorical theory, writing, and gender studies, and coordinates the internship program. Her current work investigates the connections between individual belief, activist rhetoric, and the role of citizens in an active democracy.
