The Dean of FASS and the Department of English are delighted to announce that the 2016-2017 Munro Beattie Lecture will be delivered by acclaimed Canadian writer—and former Carleton student—André Alexis.
The Munro Beattie Lecture was launched in 1985 to honour the English department’s founding chair and his contributions to literary studies in Canada. 2017 marks not only the 75th anniversary of Carleton University, but the 65th anniversary of the Department of English. This year’s Munro Beattie lecture will feature festivities such as door prizes and a reception with cake to help to kick off CU 75 celebrations, and to toast the English department’s history as a key contributor to the development of Canadian literary studies as an academic field.
This is a free public lecture. No reserved seating.
