The Alexander Grass Humanities Institute’s Annual Richard A. Macksey Lecture in 2024 will feature Dr. Merve Emre, the Shapiro-Silverberg Professor of Creative Writing and Criticism at Wesleyan University. The event will take place on March 7th at JHU’s Homewood campus and on March 8th at JHU’s new space at 555 Pennsylvania Ave in DC. Dr. Emre's lecture, titled "Why I Feel Bad for Men, or Reading ‘A Room of One’s Own’ with Pierre Bourdieu," explores the intersections of Virginia Woolf's ideas and Pierre Bourdieu's sociological perspective, shedding light on the exclusion of women from the university and the role of fiction in knowledge. The talks are free and open to the public, providing a unique opportunity to engage with Dr. Emre's insightful perspectives on literature and social theory.
