n Lecture on colonial adventure narratives to be presented

Lewis & Clark professor Andrea Hibbard will present a lecture titled “Cannibalism, Necessity and the Late-Victorian Adventure Novel: The Case of Dudley and Stephen,” on Feb. 26 at 3:30 p.m. in Miller Hall, room 102 on the L&C campus.

She will explore the intersection of colonial adventure narratives and the 1884 trial of Dudley and Stephens, two British sailors stranded at sea en route to Australia. Although the two were eventually rescued, they were put on trial for killing and eating the ship’s cabin boy.

The literary and legal narratives converge in important ways and reveal the sides and the stakes in changing definitions of masculinity, ideals of Englishness and myths of empire in the 1880s in Britain.

The event is free.

n The 50th annual Arthur L. Throckmorton Memorial Lecture will be held Feb. 25 at 3:30 p.m. in the Templeton Campus Center. Dr. Phillipa Levine, Mary Helen Thompson centennial professor in the humanities and co-director of the British Studies Program at the University of Texas at Austin, is the lecturer for this event. Levine specializes in the history of modern Britain and the British Empire with a particular interest in science, medicine and society and the intersections of race and gender.

The event is free.

n The philosophy speaker series continues March 1 with Pierre Keller from the University of California, Riverside. His presentation is titled “Kant’s Cosmic Conception of Philosophy and the Methodology of Critique.” The event will be held from 3:30 to 5 p.m. in room 202 of J.R. Howard Hall. It is free.

n Watzek Screens series continues March 5 with “Don’t Look Back” (1967) directed by D.A. Pennebaker at 7 p.m. on March 5 in room 102 of Miller Hall. The event is free.
