  • Heidi Seward and Daniel Benyousky will be delivering papers.
  • If you like Jane Austen, Aristole, John Keats, W. H. Auden, Heidi, Daniel, or things that are over a hundred years old (but not more than 215 years old), this is the event for you.

  • Dr. Jeffrey Hamilton of Baylor University will be speaking.
  • York + Lancaster = (Chivalrous) Yorkaster?
