PUBlic Professor Series | Dr. David Hobbs

Join English professor Dr. David Hobbs when he presents

What Do We Do

In this talk, Dr. Hobbs will discuss the goals of literary study, how they have changed over the past century and how they will continue to change in the coming years. Emphasizing the (often surprising) relationship between aesthetic appreciation and ethical imperatives, this talk will argue for the importance of our own, individual sense of "taste" and for the value of continuing to develop that sense throughout our lives. BE WARNED: this talk will include poetry.

Thursday, April 13, 2023 - 7-9 p.m. (MST)
