Austin Briggs, the Hamilton B. Tompkins Professor of English emeritus, was an invited speaker at a conference held Feb. 26-27 at the University of Florida (UF).

The symposium, “James Joyce, Science Fiction, and other Modernist Wonders,” was held in honor of UF Professor of English R. Brandon Kershner. In homage to Kershner's seminal work on James Joyce and popular culture, Briggs delivered a paper titled “Thinking about Molly Bloom – and Marilyn Monroe and Mrs. Robinson and Mrs. Robinson.”

The $400 million campaign marked the most ambitious fundraising initiative in the College's history.
