- 5:30 pm

Alison Case, Dennis A. Meenan ’54 Third Century Professor of English, will present “Authorizing Nelly: Female Narrative Authority, Wuthering Heights, and Me” as part of the annual Faculty Lecture Series. Case is an expert on Victorian Literature and the Novel. The author of  two books and several articles on Nineteenth-century British fiction and poetry, she published her first novel, Nelly Dean: A Return to Wuthering Heights, in 2017.

The Faculty Lecture Series was founded in 1911 by Catherine Mariotti Pratt, the spouse of a faculty member who wanted to “relieve the tedium of long New England winters with an opportunity to hear Williams professors talk about issues that really mattered to them.” The current chair of the series is Greg Mitchell, Associate Professor of Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies and chair of the Lecture Committee.

The aim of the series is to present big ideas beyond disciplinary boundaries.  This lecture will be followed by a reception in Schow Atrium. Free and open to the public.
