10/17 — “The Ghosts in the Machine”

Please join us on Monday, October 17 for a lecture by Joseph Drury. Professor Drury joins us from Villanova University where he is an Assistant Professor of English. His talk will be on “The Ghosts in the Machine: Science and Spectacle in Fielding’s Tom Jones.” It is taken from his current book project: “The Machine in the Novel: Science, Technology, and Narrative in Eighteenth-Century Britain.”

Dr. Lubey recommends this talk in particular for anyone with an interest in British literature, history, and culture; history of science and material culture; cultural studies; gender; and comedy. While the lecture will be geared toward graduate students, we encourage our undergraduate majors and minors to attend as well.
