Lindback Lecture with Professor Rita Copeland
March 12, 2019
The Philomathean Society Lindback Lecture Series is dedicated to Professors who have won the Lindback award for their teaching technique and prowess. Join us in the Philomathean Halls on the fourth floor of College Hall to hear from some of the most lucid and engaging minds on Penn’s campus.
On March 12, 2019, we will be delighted to welcome Professor Rita Copeland for a lecture on her work. Professor Copeland works across a number of fields and periods, including: medieval literature (English, Latin, French); literary theory from ancient to modern; the history of rhetoric; the reception of classical traditions in medieval and early modern Europe; intellectuals, learning, and literacy in medieval Europe; and the history of the emotions. Her teaching style combines her interests in antiquity and the Middle Ages–or how the Middle Ages understood antiquity.
Please use the East Entrance of College Hall, by Fisher Fine Arts Library.

General Meetings are held eight Fridays a semester with food and potation. They feature Reports on the Society’s news and functions; a Stump Debate, by nature a whimsical and largely meaningless pancration; a Literary Exercise, wherein a member presents on a topic of their choice; and some vestigial slack-fill of arcane & unfounded traditions, best not taken seriously at all.
