Seminar on Messianic Time and the Untimely

by J J Cohen
Mark your calendar and book your bus ticket.

Please join GW MEMSI for its inaugural event of the 2009-10 year, a seminar entitled

"Messianic Time and the Untimely"

Three papers will be pre-circulated several weeks in advance, with presentations and a discussion on Thursday September 17 at 4PM:

1. Kathleen Biddick, "The Plague of the Sovereigns"
2. Julia Lupton, "Paul Shakespeare: Exegetical Exercises"
3. Jonathan Gil Harris, ""The Untimely Mammet of Verona"

The event is free and welcomes all who would like to attend, but registration is required. Details to follow late in the summer at the GW MEMSI website.

This looks fantastic! But instead of arriving by bus, I think I will take a taxi, all the way from the Midwest. Why not? It will be like one of those taxis in Luc Besson's "The Fifth Element"--entirely appropriate, I might add, for such an event.
