Critical Speakers Series Presents Dr. Dorothy Hale
November 5 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
On Thursday, November 4 and Friday, November 5, we’ll be joined in person by Dr. Dorothy Hale. Dr. Hale is Professor of English at Berkeley, where her research and teaching focus on the Anglo-American novel, theories of the novel, and problems of novelistic form. Her most recent book, The Novel and the New Ethics, published by Stanford University Press in 2020, explores how the contemporary emphasis on the social value of the novel has its roots in modernism’s emphasis on narrative form, and especially in the work of Henry James. Look for an email from CSS later in the semester with the titles of Dr. Hale’s talk and workshop, both of which will be held at 3 PM in Greenlaw Hall’s Donovan Lounge, Room 233.
