20111231

Davis Distinguished Professor in American Literature Carla Kaplan has been selected as the 48th Robert D. Klein University Lecturer.  Her talk, “Being Who We Are(n’t):  Lessons from the 1920s,” will be delivered at 3 p.m. on Thursday, April 5, in the Raytheon Amphitheater. 

The Klein University Lecturer Award established in 1964, upon the recommendation of the Faculty Senate, honors a member of the teaching faculty who has contributed with distinction to his or her own field of study.  The University Lecture enables that faculty member to share the fruits of that scholarship with the University community and the general public.  In 1979, the award was renamed in tribute to the late Robert D. Klein, professor of mathematics, chairman of the Faculty Senate Agenda Community, and vice chairman of the Faculty Senate.
