September

29

How do we celebrate, mourn, and make sense of the singular lives and deaths of artists and adequately appreciate their social and cultural relevance? Our first Dinner Forum of the new academic year will explore the phenomenon of the passing of public figures such as Prince, Michael Jackson, David Bowie and others. Dinner served at 6:30pm; Forum discussion begins at 7:00pm.

RSVPs are due to tbehr@wustl.edu by Friday, September 23rd.

The Americanist Dinner Fora are the flagship intellectual event for the AMCS community. Each month features a new set of speakers exploring a topic relevant to American Studies through the medium of a selected reading. The reading will be circulated the week prior. AMCS graduate students are expected to attend each of the fora, and AMCS Faculty are strongly encouraged to attend.
