19th-Century Seminar Event May 7

On Friday, May 7 at 3 p.m., the University Seminar on 19th-Century British Histories will be gathering at the Corcoran for its last meeting of the academic year. The meeting will feature an illustrated talk by Prof. Barbara Gates (University of Delaware) titled “Of Fungi and Fables: Beatrix Potter and the Science of Storytelling.”

The lecture is in honor of Professor Judith Plotz, on the occasion of her retirement and in thanks for her many contributions to nineteenth-century studies, and will be followed by a short wine-and-cheese reception.

The auditorium at the Corcoran has plentiful seating, and all are invited, but please RSVP Amber Cobb Vasquez [acv@gwmail.gwu.edu] so that the organizers can plan for the reception.
