Books & Bridges: Featuring Jared Hickman
Nov 16, 2017, 6:30 pm
Weller Book Works presents the next in the Books and Bridges discussion series as Mark Matheson discusses Jane Austen and Persuasion, Thursday, November 16, 6:30 PM, at Weller Book Works!
Mark Matheson, Professor of English at the University of Utah, will lead a lecture and discussion on Jane Austen’s novel Persuasion. This year marks the 200-year anniversary of Jane Austen’s death and Professor Matheson will also explain her significance to English literature and influence on the modern imagination.
Mark Matheson has taught English at the University of Utah for over twenty years. A native Utahn, he received his M.A. from the University of Utah and his Doctorate from the University of Oxford. Professor Matheson travels to London with his students where he teaches seminars on British Literature. He also serves as the Director of the University of Utah-based Tanner Lectures on Human Values. He continues to teach and greatly enjoys advocating for students’ educational interests through The MUSE Project.
This event is organized by Books & Bridges — a community institute of ideas and conversation. Our mission is to facilitate discussion on the best of human thought. We explore the wisdoms of the world and apply them to modern life. We have no political, religious or ideological affiliation. In a society divided by uncivil discourse, the beauty of the humanities—novels, history, philosophy, poetry, ethics and epics—lifts us to our better angels. In our busy world we need space for friends and fellow learners to do a little more heart-to-heart and mind-to-mind.
This event is made possible with support from Books & Bridges, Weller Book Works, and Utah Humanities.
