"To Conjure With: Thin Air, Thick Description, and the Invocation of a Project"
Currently at work on a wide-ranging examination of “Charm,” Professor Tucker will speak to the challenges and rewards of shaping an expansive intellectual idea into a concrete project with defined and achievable goals. Dr. Tucker, John C. Coleman Professor of English at University of Virginia, is the author of Epic (Oxford University Press, 2008), Tennyson and the Doom of Romanticism (Harvard University Press, 1988), and Browning’s Beginnings (University of Minnesota Press, 1981).
