||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.
For more information on the series please call Ann Marie O'Keefe-Penney,
program developer, Division of Lifelong Learning, Memorial University of
