“Don’t underestimate the value of doing nothing, of just going along, listening to all the things you can’t hear, and not bothering.”
—A.A. Milne

With finals in bloom, remember to take a break and enjoy the springtime!

Note: Alan Alexander Milne (A.A. Milne) is author of Winnie-the-Pooh (1926). Thinking of making a trip to the Hundred Acre Wood? May 3-9 is Children’s Book Week, the longest-running national literacy initiative in the country. Pause the studying and pick up your favorite childhood book for a brief recess.

Scholarship@Villanova Event: Roundtable Discussion on “We Have Been Here All Along: Gender, American Literature, and White Supremacy”

Join us on Tuesday, March 16, 7:30-9 p.m., to celebrate the publication of Gender in American Literature and Culture—the latest addition to a new Cambridge University Press series that seeks to understand the cultural forces that have brought us to our vexed contemporary moment—by attending this virtual roundtable discussion with the book’s co-editor and three contributors. Examining texts from early America to the present, the volume demonstrates how rigid inscriptions of gender have perpetuated a legacy of violence and exclusion in the United States.

Speakers include Travis Foster, PhD, Associate Professor of English and Academic Director of Gender and Women’s Studies (GWS), Villanova University; Jean M. Lutes, PhD, Professor of English, Villanova University; Brigitte Fielder, PhD, Associate Professor of the College of Letters and Science at the University of Wisconsin-Madison; and Seulghee Lee, PhD, Assistant Professor of African American Studies and English Literature at the University of South Carolina.

This ACS-approved event, co-sponsored by Falvey Memorial Library, the Gender and Women’s Studies Program, and the Department of English, is free and open to the public.

Please REGISTER by following this link:

Falvey hosts several lectures in the series per year, including a talk by the Outstanding Faculty Research Award recipient.
