Frank Gado and OSHER@Dartmouth present two ninety-minute lectures that will present the novel as the pivot of Melville's persistent search for meaning in the face of apparent meaninglessness, and as an unsatisfied demand for justification of injustice. Everyone from high school students to pensioners curious about their country's literary heritage is welcome.
While attendees are not required to have read the book, your enjoyment of these sessions will be elevated by familiarity with this classic novel. Free and open to the public.
The two lectures will be held on Thursday, October 4, and Thursday, October 18. A Q&A session will be held on Thursday, November 1.
All events will be held in Rockefeller Center 003 on the Dartmouth College campus.
