Dr. Fosket's Poteat lecture was a tour de force analysis on the "crisis" of the humanities, the way forward, and how the discipline of biblical studies may offer a template on how other scholars within the humanities might more effectively engage public scholarship.
An evening appropriately celebratory, convivial and inspiring--expressive of everyone's profound admiration and deepest affection for Dr. Wilson--who did as he promised, greeted everyone there at the reception following--
Amazing and stunning film! Abigail Child is a genius film maker!
Lovely event and great programming.
This was perhaps the best lecture I have attended in three years at Wake Forest. Mr. Bringhurst is the expert in his field, the lecture he gave was written solely for the occasion of his visit to Wake Forest, and with a broad sweep of history and unparalleled attention to detail it embodied the essence of truly excellent humanistic inquiry.
