Critical Speakers Series Presents Dr. Dorothy Hale

November 5, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

On 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. Her lecture, “‘I slip into your skin’: Girl, Woman, Other & the Novelistic Aesthetics of Alterity,” promises to be an exciting conclusion to the Critical Speaker Series’ fall lineup!

Dr. Hale’s workshop is available to 12 UNC graduate students interested in engaging with her at seminar level.

The Workshop will be held on Friday, November 5th, in Greenlaw Hall, Room 225.
