Join us for the 2019 - 2020 Residential College Robertson Lecture, featuring LSA Dean and Professor Anne Curzan. Her talk is titled "Life, Love, and the Liberal Arts: Pursuing an education that matters", and will focus on the joy of discovering the questions that drive us, the importance of not always knowing, and the value of a liberal arts education in preparing to succeed in "radically diverse environments," as Van Jones calls them.

The talk will be held in the East Quad Keene Theater on Tuesday, February 4th from 4-5:15pm, and will include some time for Q&A. It will be followed by a reception in the lobby of the Keene Theater.

Professor Anne Curzan is the Geneva Smitherman Collegiate Professor of English Language and Literature, Linguistics, and Education, and the Arthur F. Thurnau Professor of English, Linguistics, and Education. Professor Curzan's research interests include the history of English, language and gender, corpus linguistics, medieval language and literature, historical sociolinguistics, pedagogy, and lexicography. In addition to her teaching, research, and administrative posts in the English Department, Professor Curzan is co-editor of the Journal of English Linguistics.
