It gives us no pleasure to observe that the global democracies are not well; but is there a historical perspective in which we might place this reading in order to effectively respond to it? This year's Lahey lecture, by Professor Hortense Spillers, will attempt to do so against the current context of problematic developments within the body politic of US democracy.

The Lahey Lecture is part of the annual series, begun at Loyola College in 1962-3, of high-profile, external speakers in the discipline of English literary studies, broadly-conceived. The lecture series is named in honour of Fr. Gerald F. Lahey, S.J., who taught English at Loyola College and served as the College’s rector (1954-1959). Prof. Spillers will be the latest in a distinguished group of speakers—from Northrop Frye and Margaret Atwood to, more recently, Michael Bérubé and Susan Stewart—who have presented their scholarly work to Montréal audiences. 

How can you participate? Join us in person (note, we can accommodate up to 30 audience members comfortably in the space) or online by registering for the Zoom Meeting or watching live on YouTube.
