Lionel Trilling (1905-75), one of Columbia's most celebrated faculty members, was among the great humanist scholars and public intellectuals of the 20th century. In his memory, the Heyman Center sponsors a series of intellectual conversations, known as the Lionel Trilling Seminars. Toril Moi, James B. Duke Professor of Literature and Romance Studies and Professor of English, Philosophy, and Theater Studies at Duke University, will give the spring 2014 Lionel Trilling Lecture.

Every semester the Undergraduate Committee likes to sponsor at least one event for our students that allows them to interact outside of class, not only with other English majors but with the rest of the department as well, both faculty and graduate students.  This spring we will be hosting an event on Wednesday, March 5, at 6:15, celebrating the 300th anniversary of Pope's The Rape of the Lock.
