Please join us most Mondays during the semester 2–2:23 p.m. in Falvey Memorial Library’s Speakers’ Corner for the GlobalSmackDown series. Tim Horner, PhD, professor in the Center for Peace and Justice Education, will lead discussions focusing on timely and important international news and issues. Students, faculty and staff are welcome to join the conversations. This event series is co-sponsored by Falvey Memorial Library and the Center for Peace and Justice Education.
Please join us on Wednesday, Nov. 20, at 4 p.m., in Falvey’s room 205, for a Scholarship@ Villanova talk featuring James Kriesel, PhD. Dr. Kriesel will discuss his recently published book on the body and gender in medieval Italian literature. Boccaccio’s Corpus explores how Boccaccio engaged theological notions to suggest that his erotic Decameron could move readers more profoundly than Dante’s otherworldly Comedy and Petrarch’s Canzoniere. Boccaccio promoted his erotic text by affirming that it uses the body symbolically in a manner akin to how God “wrote” with the body in history. This event, co-sponsored by Falvey Memorial Library and Romance Languages and Literatures, is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
