    Thurs. Mar. 30 - "Hard Times: Reading Fiction in the Age of Biomedicine," a lecture by Tabitha Sparks, McGill University, 5 pm, Doudna Lecture Hall. Sponsored by EIU's English Department, Humanities Center and Women's Studies.

    What do fiction and literary study offer at a time when knowledge is measured by use value? Charles Dickens posed this question indirectly in his 1854 novel Hard Times, a withering satire of industrial society's reductive and economic understanding of human experience. This talk examines contemporary approaches to fiction in the fields of the medical humanities and literature and medicine, and questions how 'objective' medical perspectives can serve or disserve fictional analysis. With examples drawn from Victorian and Modern fiction, it emphasizes how fiction's conjunction with medical history (including the diagnoses of literary characters) and practical applications (such as the teaching of literature in medical schools) can inadvertently diminish fiction's power as an alternative and imaginative reality.

    Tabitha Sparks is Associate Professor of the Nineteenth-Century Novel in the Department of English, and Associate Member of the Social Studies of Medicine Program, at McGill University, in Montreal Canada.

    Thursday, March 30, 7 p.m., West Reading Room, Booth Library
    Opening reception
    Keynote presentation: The Next 100: The Future of Public History in Illinois
    Presented by Illinois State Historian Sam Wheeler

    Throughout its statehood, Illinois has celebrated history in a myriad of ways. More than just the “Land of Lincoln,” Illinois boasts a rich heritage of investing in the past. State organizations such as the Illinois State Museum have been critical forces in preserving our shared cultural heritage for over 100 years. Today that legacy continues, as new organizations join with the old in pursuit of a more comprehensive and diverse historical narrative.     

    As the state of Illinois approaches its bicentennial in 2018, perspectives and public support of history are constantly changing. The temporary closure of the Illinois State Museum last year, due to the budget freeze in Illinois, caused ripples in the museum community. History also faces challenges in Illinois schools, where it no longer remains an independent part of the curriculum. State historian Dr. Samuel Wheeler will discuss how the past shapes perspectives in Illinois today and how public history will face the challenges of the future as the state turns 200.

    Exhibit "A Question of History: Public History in Illinois" on display at Booth Library March 30- July 31, 2017.
