Professor Stephen Clingman of the Department of English will present the Distinguished Faculty Lecture. His talk, "Looking from South Africa to the World: A Story of Identity for Our Times," will examine how South African activists and writers have approached the question of identity as an unfolding story, a journey across the boundaries of a fragmented yet connected world.  The issues examined by writers at the moment of their country's transition to democracy are a microcosm of how identity is being created all over the globe. 

Professor Clingman will be presented with the Chancellor's Medal, the highest recognition bestowed to faculty by the campus, at the conclusion of the lecture.

This lecture is free and open to the public.
