Dear Colleagues,

Please join the Modernism Seminar of the Mahindra Humanities Center at
Harvard on Wednesday, October 30, at 6:00 p.m. to hear John Lurz speak on
the topic:

*"Virginia Woolf's Material Modernism: Lingering with the Pages in Jacob's
Room"*


The presentation will take place in Room 133 of the Barker Center.

*John Lurz *is Assistant Professor in the English Department at Tufts
University.  He received his PhD from the University of California,
Berkeley in 2011 and is currently working on a book, provisionally titled *The
Death of the Book: Modernist Novels and the Time of Reading*, that
addresses how the high modernist novels of Joyce, Woolf and Proust
interrogate their embodiment in the format of the book. His work has
appeared in *New Literary History *and *Critical Inquiry*, and he has
articles forthcoming in *NOVEL *and the *James Joyce Quarterly*.


There is free parking near the HHC at the Broadway Garage, on Felton
between Broadway and Cambridge Street. Just tell the attendant that you're
participating in an event at the HHC. Normally the attendant is welcoming,
as long as it's after 5:00 p.m., even if we are erroneously not on the good
list.

We hope you'll be able to attend the session, which, as always, includes
discussion after the presentation.


The final fall session of the Modernism Seminar will be:
*David Sherman (Brandeis University),* “Varieties of Secular Experience in
Hardy, Conrad, Woolf, and Beckett” on *Wednesday, November 20* at 6 pm
(Barker 133)
