The Suzy Newhouse Center for the Humanities is pleased to welcome author Margaret Atwood to Wellesley as part of its Distinguished Thinker Series.

Her novels include The Blind Assassin, winner of the Booker Prize; Alias Grace, which won the Giller Prize in Canada and the Premio Mondello in Italy; and The Robber Bride, Cat’s Eye, and The Handmaid’s Tale—coming soon as a TV series with MGM and Hulu. Her work addresses pertinent issues of misogyny, dystopia, tyranny, and the future of women’s rights.

The 2017 Distinguished Faculty Lecture

Marianne Moore: Casting a Net into the Clear, Cold Soul of Siberia—Lake Baikal

Wednesday, April 19, 2017 - 12:30pm
Collins Cinema

Since 2001, students and faculty from the sciences and the humanities at Wellesley College have travelled to Lake Baikal, Siberia, where they have worked together to conduct original scientific research and exchange ideas across multiple cultures. In this lecture by Marianne Moore, some of the scientific and cultural discoveries that created meaningful change for both Russians and Americans will be presented, emphasizing the power and unexpected benefits that can come from uniting the sciences with the humanities.

Moore, Frost Professor in Environmental Science and professor of biological sciences, has conducted research focusing on biodiversity and environmental change in Lake Baikal for more than 15 years.

Generously supported by the President’s Office.
