4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Professor Stuart Sherman is Lincoln Center Associate Chair and Chair of the English Department at Fordham University. He writes on 18th-century prose and theater, and his first book, Telling Time: Clocks, Diaries, and English Diurnal Form 1660-1785, won the Gottschalk Award in 18th-century studies in 1996. It recounts brilliantly the relationship between early modern clock-making technology and the development of diary-, journal-, and other forms of time-sensitive writing over the long 18th century. His talk is co-sponsored by the English Department, the Drama Department, and CWGS.
