George Story Lecture in Humanities

The late Dr. George Story (1927-1994) was one of Newfoundland’s most distinguished scholars and teachers, whose scholarship ranged from Erasmus and Lancelot Andrewes, through Christmas mummering in Newfoundland, to the lexicography that resulted in the Dictionary of Newfoundland English. To commemorate and honour Dr. Story’s contribution to research and scholarship, Memorial University endowed an annual George H. Story Lecture in Humanities, which reflect the range and variety of Dr. Story’s intellectual interests.

Nominations for the 2013-14 lectureship are due November 1, 2012.
