The Victorian Colloquium is welcoming Professor Elaine Hadley (U of Chicago) at 4:30 pm in the Hinds Library to give a talk about Thomas Hardy’s Jude the Obscure and education as it is figured in labor and economic terms set out by Gary Becker. It promises to be a fascinating presentation--one that is equally illuminating about Victorian literature and our own standing as 'laborers' in the academic profession.

Reception in the Thorp Library to follow talk.
