The Secret Houses

by Eugenia Pérez Tomas, Translated by Becca Willenbrink

Anis is a housesitter. She moves from place to place, finding within each home objects, stories, and identities that remain from the beings that inhabit these spaces. The Secret Houses is a lyrical exploration of how we construct our own reality from what is left behind.

by Sean Michael Welch

In a small cafe in Paris, France, our reliable Narrator chronicles the dramatic meeting of two young lovers. But who is really orchestrating the story? Join us for a night of hilarity as we try to figure out what is more important, reality or a good story.

Dr. Tom Larson, From Victorian Literature to Value Proposition: Humanities in the Marketplace

  • Location: Gary Ransdell Hall Auditorium
  • Time: 7:30pm

SUMMARY OF LECTURE

Dr Larson’s talk describes how the knowledge and experience he gained as a humanities student and teacher provided skills that provided a foundation for a successful business career. The role of humanities and liberal arts in courses of study focused on professional and technical skills is a key issue in higher-level education today. For example, a recent issue of “The Chronicle of Higher Education” claims, “The academic study of literature is no longer on the verge of field collapse. It’s in the midst of it.” For over 30 years, Dr Larson held a key Business Development position in a major aerospace and defense company, supporting the acquisition of billions of dollars of government contracts for satellite and missile systems. His qualifications for this role? A doctorate in English focused on 19th Century British Literature and 15 years teaching writing and literature courses. Come listen to his reflections on this career path and on some essential elements of business success.
