Three Lecture Events

This must be the intellectual springtime that comes at the end of a long, cold, snowy winter.

First next Tuesday, I’ll be at the Institute for the Study of the Ancient World in New York to hear Sebastian Heath and Eric Kansa deliver talks.  Heath will speak on “Digital Publication and Linked Data at Troy” and Kansa (the guru behind Open Context) will speak on “Open Context: Digital Dissemination of Field Research and Museum Collections.”  For abstracts and more details about these open to the public lectures check out this post on Tom Elliott’s blog, Horothesia.

Not to be outdone, Phi Alpha Theta (the History Honor Society) at the University of North Dakota will host Peter Schultz of Concordia College.  Peter is a rock star archaeologist/ art historian and he will speak on “History, Image, and Anti-Image on the Periklean Acropolis”.  The talk will be on Thursday, April 16th at 5 pm in the East Asian Room of the Chester Fritz Library.  There will be a reception at 4 pm with pastries and coffee and a chance to chat with Peter.

One more, we have successfully rescheduled John Cox’s talk.  If you recall, it was scheduled during the Fargo flood crisis and we allowed him to prioritize his efforts to save his community!  In any event, the talk is entitled “Socialism, Serbofilia, Sex, and Suicide: The Mad World of Slovene Literature and Politics around 1900” and will be on Friday, April 30th.  The talk will start at 4:00 pm, reception afterwards!  What better way to spend a Spring Friday!

And, I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention our ongoing and successful History Workshop will meet once again on April 8th to discuss Daniel Sauerwein’s biography of Nonpartisan League president A.C. Townley.  If you are interested in participating, contact Cynthia Prescott for a copy of the paper and location details.
