Speaker Series: Nature(s) and the Humanities

In our series this year, we take the term “nature” and explore its relationship to the Humanities in a number of ways: nature and the environment, the “nature” of something, what is “against nature,” the humanities and science, the nature of the digital, and more. We are excited to celebrate the release of books by two of our faculty this semester, Dr. Teresa Hornsby and Dr. David Goldberg. Both talks are open to all members of the Drury Community. Please join us!
