Historical Writing, Topic of Brown Bag Lunch at DeSales, Wed., March 22
Historical writing will be the focus of a Brown Bag Lunch program at noon, Wednesday, March 22, in the Trexler Library at DeSales University. Guest speaker, Dr. Brennan Pursell, assistant professor of humanities at DeSales, will talk on, "From Facts to Fiction: a Journey through the Landscape of Historical Writing." The event is open to public free of charge.
"I'm going to tell a little story about historical study and writing, using my own path of publication as the guide," said Pursell. According to Pursell, the heart of the discussion will be the issue of truth, and the extent to which any writer can do justice to it, whether through scholarly or popular publication venues.
The Brown Bag Lunches series at DeSales was established in fall of 1999. Each program includes a presentation, followed by a question and answer session.
