POSTPONED: Reed on the Road in San Francisco

This spring, we're taking Reed on the road! 

At Reed on the Road in San Francisco, you will

  • hear President Audrey Bilger reflect on her first nine months at Reed;
  • attend a condensed lecture from the Harlem module of Humanities 110 given by Pancho Savery, professor of English and humanities.

In a lecture titled "Perfect as Dusk," Professor Savery will discuss the first section of Jean Toomer's Cane, which features stories and poems depicting women in the rural black South. This talk will consider why these women are portrayed as closely connected to nature and whether this portrayal is a limitation or provides a sense of empowerment for the female protagonist. Optional reading: Cane (Jean Toomer, 1923), first section.

To register for this event, please submit your RSVP by April 23.
