In 2016, Bob Dylan was awarded, with some controversy, the Nobel Prize in Literature. This spring the Center for the Advancement of the Humanities invites the Marquette community to participate in a 12-week seminar based on the recent book, “Why Bob Dylan Matters,” by the Harvard classicist Richard Thomas.
This seminar will be limited to 20 participants, is designed for personal enrichment, and carries no credit or fees. It is open to any faculty, staff, or student with an interest in Bob Dylan and the question of his cultural importance. Participants should be willing to buy the book, or read it on reserve at Raynor Memorial Libraries. The seminar will meet on Tuesdays from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. beginning Tuesday, Feb. 6. The location will be announced to those selected to participate.
Those who are interested in participating should contact Dr. James South, professor of philosophy and center director, via email providing a brief description of your interest and indicating whether you are a faculty member, staff member, or student.
