Books and Bridges: Mark Matheson. Part of UHBF

October 4 @ 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

Free

On October 4th, Books and Bridges presents Mark Matheson and “Dramatic Proposals: Women Characters and ‘The Question’ in Shakespeare’s Plays.”

Mark Matheson, Professor of English at the University of Utah, will lead a lecture and discussion on the proposals of marriage in Love’s Labor’s Lost, Romeo and Juliet, Much Ado about Nothing, and The Winter’s Tale. Throughout his work, Shakespeare represents such proposals in a surprising variety of ways. But whatever form they take, these proposals are sensitive dramatic moments that enable us to explore both the politics of a given play’s society and the independence of the women characters involved. Dr. Matheson has taught English at the University of Utah for over twenty years. He received his M.A. from the University of Utah and his Doctorate from the University of Oxford. Professor Matheson travels to London with his students where he teaches seminars on British Literature. He also serves as the Director of the University of Utah-based Tanner Lectures on Human Values. He continues to teach and greatly enjoys advocating for students’ educational interests through The MUSE Project.

This event is organized by Books & Bridges — a community institute of ideas and conversation. Our mission is to facilitate discussion on the best of human thought. We explore the wisdoms of the world and apply them to modern life. We have no political, religious or ideological affiliation. In a society divided by uncivil discourse, the beauty of the humanities—novels, history, philosophy, poetry, ethics and epics—lifts us to our better angels. In our busy world we need space for friends and fellow learners to do a little more heart-to-heart and mind-to-mind.

Part of Utah Humanities Book Festival.
