From the proliferation and commodification of print culture in the 18th century to the Forster's Education Act of 1870, those who consumed - and the way people consumed – the arts and culture at large changed irrevocably in England. These factors - among numerous others- culminate Leonard Bast's feeble attempts to fit Ruskin's depictions of Venice to his basement hovel in E.M. Forster's classic Howards End. Bast's story, pushed to the margins of the novel, is primarily that of a working class individual attempting to better his position in life through the arts and culture.

Art as Ethics / Ethical Art in the Works of George Eliot (SAMLA 87)

In her famous essay, "The Natural History of German Life," George Eliot decried the recent attempts of English painters to recreate the "truthfulness" of Teniers and Murillo. Though Eliot would attempt to correct the errors in perception and representation through her writing, she continued to engage with other forms of art (paintings and music, specifically) throughout her life. In keeping with the theme of SAMLA 87, this panel looks for papers examining the moments in Eliot's works - her novels, poetry, nonfiction - wherein she contemplates other forms of art and their moral and ethical implications for both her characters and her readers.

In More's Footsteps: Utopia and Science Fiction
Foundation #124 (summer 2016)

Next year marks the 500th anniversary of Sir Thomas More's seminal work, Utopia. Although the text has been of importance within Renaissance Studies and political philosophy, it has also occupied a special place within science fiction for helping to popularize the notion of 'the Great Good Place' to which society should strive to perfect. Whether directly or indirectly, More's text has been of huge significance for the utopian strand that runs through much science fiction.

Public Intellectuals Lecture Series (Fall 2015)

The Public Intellectuals Lecture Series has just wrapped up a successful spring lineup featuring four fantastic, well attended lectures. We are now planning a second series for the fall.

The Public Intellectuals Lecture Series aims to create a bridge between scholars in the Arts and the general public. While the complex ideas these scholars help develop have important, real world applications to the way we understand and interact with each other, they are often couched in jargon and confined to the journals and lecture halls of the academic sphere. This lecture series will offer a venue and format in which scholars can present these ideas to the public in an accessible manner.
