Dear Colleagues and Friends,

This is a reminder that the 2009 A. W. Mellon Foundation/Franklin Humanities Institute Distinguished Lecture will take place on Tuesday, March 17, 2009, 5:30 PM (the second day back after break) at the Nasher Museum of Art. We are extremely pleased to have Homi K. Bhabha, Anne F. Rothenberg Professor of the Humanities at Harvard University, as our Distinguished Lecturer this year. Prof. Bhabha's lecture is entitled “Also, I Know That a Man Can Become of an Incredible Wickedness Very Suddenly”: Time, Agency, and the Banality of Evil."

On the following day - Wednesday, March 18, 3:00 - 6:00 PM - Prof. Bhabha will serve as respondent in the FHI's 2009 Spring Symposium, "Sovereignty and Security." The symposium will feature talks by Wendy Brown (Professor of Political Science, UC Berkeley) and √Čtienne Balibar (Professor Emeritus, Universit√© Paris X & Distinguished Professor in the Humanities, UC Irvine). This event will take place in Franklin Center Room 240. Profs. Brown and Balibar are both FHI Distinguished Scholars in Residence this Spring.

The lecture and symposium are free and open to the public - no registration is required.

We hope that you will be able to join us at both of these exciting programs. I encourage you to visit our webiste (http://www.fhi.duke.edu/) or contact our staff (fhi@duke.edu) for more information, including details regarding other public events and opportunities to engage with Profs.
