In the first of two unique lectures on the relevance of the great Victorian novels to today’s readers, Mark Schenker, Dean of Academic Affairs in Yale College, will examine the social and psychological issues that confronted the Victorians and that continue to engage us in the 21st century on Saturday, Sept. 21.
The issues include class and gender, social responsibility and personal freedom, and the religious sensibility in an increasingly secular age. Each session is a one hour talk, followed by a Q&A.
Wine and cheese will be served until 5:30pm following the talks for those who wish to stay for refreshment and discussion with each other. This original lecture series has been generously sponsored by an anonymous donor. Registration highly recommended.
