Lets Talk About It Series - A Passage to India
February 5th 2013 7:00pm - 9:00pm at Oklahoma CityCome here Dr. Amrita Sen speak and participate in a small discussion group on E.M. Forster's A Passage to India.
Forster recounts the mythical and physical journeys of characters amidst three great religious traditions—Christianity, Islam and Hinduism—in the twilight of the British Empire in India. Mrs. Moore encounters a threshold crossing experience as she moves into ancient caves. What has happened when she emerges from these wombs or tombs—this heart of mystery?
Oklahoma City University invites participants to make these books come alive in the readings of this five-part series. At each session, a Humanities scholar will make a 30-40 minute presentation on the book in the context of the theme. Small group discussion will follow with experienced discussion leaders. At the end, everyone will come together for a brief wrap-up. Anyone interested in participating by attending the sessions is encouraged to pre-register and borrow the reading selections by calling Harbour Winn at 208-5472, emailing him at firstname.lastname@example.org, or dropping by the Dulaney-Browne Library, Room 211 or 207. (Note the offices are located in the five-story building southwest of Walker Center.)
