Dear Colleagues,


Please join the Modernism Seminar of the Mahindra Humanities Center at
Harvard on Thursday, September 29, at 6:00 p.m. to hear Kevin Ohi present:


*Abstraction and Embodiment in the Novel: Virginia Woolf’s Jacob’s Room*


The presentation will take place in Warren House, Room 201.

(Warren House is next to the Barker Center on Prescott St., which parallels
Quincy St. http://map.harvard.edu/?bld=04122&level=9)


Currently a fellow at the Society for the Humanities at Cornell University,*
Kevin Ohi* is the author of *Innocence and Rapture: The Erotic Child in
Pater, Wilde, James, and Nabokov* (2005); *Henry James and the Queerness of
Style* (2011); and *Dead Letters Sent: Queer Literary Transmission* (2015).
The recipient of fellowships from the National Humanities Center and the
Guggenheim Foundation, he is Professor of English at Boston College.


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.

Details about the Center, including a calendar of events, are available at:
