Interdisciplinarity and Interpretation

The 1891 Lectures in the Humanities: Ato Quayson

n 1891, thirty-five scholars gathered to form a community in a new university. In that spirit, we come together to welcome new senior faculty members of the community in 2020. Speakers will present current research that reflects the shape of their thought. Join us for the inaugural lecture in this series.

Following the lecture there will be a Q&A session and reception.
