Lauren Brooks defends Ph.D. dissertation comparing Kafka with Seinfeld

On Friday, 16 March, Lauren Brooks (front row, center in photo at right) successfully defended her doctoral dissertation entitled: "Kafka Goes to New York: Reading Kafka in Seinfeld's America." The dissertation examines authority, respect and their absurd and meaningless nature as demonstrated through the works of Austrian writer Franz Kafka and the U.S. situation-comedy Seinfeld. Congratulations, Lauren!
