Great Books Spring 2009
The Department of Humanistic Studies and the Brown County Library invite you to participate in the fall semester’s Great Books Discussion series. On the second Tuesday of each month, a member of UW-Green Bay’s Humanitistc Studies faculty will lead a discussion on one of the “great books” of western and world culture. The schedule for the spring semester 2009 is…
Shakepeare, The Tempest
(presented by Prof. Catherine Henze, English)
Leo Tolstoy, A Prisoner in the Caucasus
(presented by Prof. Kevin Kain, History)
Hanan Al-Shayk, Women of Sand and Myrrh
(presented by Prof. Heidi Sherman, History)
John Steinbeck, The Grapes of Wrath
(presented by Sigma Tau Delta English Honor Society)
The discussions are free and open to the public. Faculty, students, and community members are encouraged to attend. Of course, we encourage you to read the “great book” before attending the discussion, but even if you cannot finish the work, you may find the session enlightening.
The Great Books Discussion series is held on the Lower Level of the Brown County Library (Central Branch – 515 Pine St., Downtown Green Bay). Discussions begin at 6:30 p.m.
