Location: Thomas Hall, Whitney Bank Presentation Room, First Floor

 

Professor Margaret Cohen (French, Stanford University) will present a public lecture on how the history of modern underwater exploration has shaped literature and the arts.  Her talk is part of the Biever Guest Lecture Series.  Those who attend her lecture will be asked to rethink their own “imaginings” of the world we live in, and challenged to consider the land we live on in proportion to the great oceans that surround it.  This presentation of new research builds on her book, The Novel and the Sea (Princeton UP, 2010), which “recounts the novel’s rise, told from the perspective of the ship’s deck and the allure of the oceans in the modern cultural imagination,” and which was awarded the Louis R. Gottschalk Prize from the American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies and the George and Barbara Perkins Prize from the International Society for the Study of the Narrative. Cohen's work brings together novel theory, ecology, philosophy, and a contagious passion for the sea. 

Sponsored by the Biever Lecture Series, the Department of English, the Environment Program and Sigma Tau Delta.
