More poetry, a conversation, and a paper

Today at 4 p.m. in the Henke Lounge of the AMU, Donna K. Hollenberg of the University of Connecticut will be giving a presentation on Denise Leventov ‘s ambivalence about feminist poetry, with reference to biographical context and interpretive possibilities .

Also, this is happening. Tonight, at from 6-8 p.the Diversity Comission’s At the Intersection program is hosting a discussion on religion and sexuality:

At the Intersection is a series of discussions that explores the conflicts that can arise in our everyday lives. This month’s event, “At the Intersection: Sexuality and Religion” is a dinner and a dialogue that explores the relationship between these two topics.

Food will be served and the event will be conversation and reflection driven. So bring your questions and we’ll see you at the intersection!

Finally, I read the Newsbriefs so you don’t have to:
