Dr. Teresa Pershing, Ph.D.


The Tenants are pleased to announce that, as of 6:00 this afternoon, Ms. Teresa Pershing is now Dr. Teresa Pershing, following a chat with her dissertation committee: Lara Farina, Marilyn Francus, Adam Komisaruk, Richard Sha (American University), and yours truly.  The topics addressed in a meandering discussion of Teresa's dissertation, which argued for the critical value of making a distinction between erring (as non-normative mistake) and errancy (as a queer mode of escaping the norms), ranged from a lengthy discussion of Malthus to an even longer discussion of Smear the Queer. Congratulations to Dr. Pershing!
