Free evening speaker series continues at Memorial University

Ref. No. 39

DATE:     Oct. 30, 2001
SUBJECT:     Free evening speaker series continues at Memorial University

Memorial's Division of Lifelong Learning, in conjunction with the Office of Alumni Affairs, is hosting a free evening Speakers Series featuring some of Memorial university's most distinguished scholars and alumna.

November, the month of remembrance, sets the stage for well-known historian, Dr. John FitzGerald , as he revisits the province's defining military action: Beaumont Hamel. It is said that not a family in the province was left untouched by the events of that tragic yet transfiguring experience. Join Dr. FitzGerald for his presentation which is titled: A visit to Beaumont Hamel. Dr. Fitzgerald's lecture will be held on Nov. 7, 2001, at 7:30 p.m. in the Arts and Administration Building Room A-1043. The 2001 presentations will be wrapped up by Dr. Philip Hiscock, one of the province's most popular folklorists. Dr. Hiscock offers a rich and frequently nostalgic look at Christmas in his presentation titled The Variety of Traditional Christmases in Newfoundland and Labrador. Dr. Hiscock will evoke the music, customs, and imagery of a season that is central to how we recall our past. Join Dr. Hiscock on Wednesday, Dec. 5, 2001 at 7:30 p.m. in the D.F. Cook Recital Hall. To register for these events, please call 737-7979. Although the series is free, donations to the university's Scholarship Fund will be received gratefully.
