The first in a new series of faculty lectures sponsored by the Beloit College History Department, the series "Temporalities," will focus upon the way that time and memory weave their ways into all of our disciplines, without exception.
The series will begin with Ed Mathieu’s lecture, “Imaginations of German Modernity: Heinrich XXII as Anti-Modern Caricature and Critic.” Professor Mathieu’s research on modern German history has led him to the figure of Heinrich XXII, who “became a nationally notorious caricature of anti-modernity” during the swirling events surrounding the founding of the new German state.
This event is free and open to the campus community.
