Visiting Assistant Professor of Classics James Wells will discuss “‘Are you the bee or just a stinging story?’: Maurice Manning’s Bucolics and Poetic Representations of God in a Secular Age,” on Thursday, Feb. 4, at 4:10 p.m. in the Science Center’s classroom 3024. The lecture, the fifth in the Hamilton College Humanities Forum, is free and open to the public.

The Humanities Forum is a series of lectures, workshops, and presentations designed to explore the problem of secular humanism in the modern academy. The theme for 2009-11 is “The Secular Gaze: Humanistic Representations of the World.”

The forum aims to open a discourse on the philosophical foundations of modern secularism and their effects on contemporary society. Organizers hope that these events will celebrate and highlight the humanities both at Hamilton and as an area of teaching, study and contemplation.
