John H. Jones to Present Annual Faculty Scholar Lecture on May 10
Professor John H. Jones of the Department of English will give the annual Faculty Scholar Lecture on Thursday, May 10, at 2:30 p.m. in Room 1103AB of the Houston Cole Library. The title of his talk is "Blake, Originality, and Dissent." Based on the research from his book "Blake on Language, Power, and Self-Annihilation," the discussion will examine the stifling political environment of late eighteenth-century England and how the poet and artist William Blake argued for the importance and necessity of dissenting voices fostered by artistic originality.
Admission is free.
