Classics remain lively today, Frost reminds After Thoughts audience
Classic French literature of the mid-1800s by Gustav Flaubert and Emile Zola did a wonderful job of illuminating the path ahead and the modern consumer culture and feminist movements to follow. That was one of the messages shared by Susan Frost, associate lecturer in Humanistic Studies, as featured speaker Nov. 1 for the second presentation in the 2011-12 edition of UW-Green Bay’s popular After Thoughts series.
Frost told the audience of nearly 100 women at the Weidner Center Grand Foyer that the humanities “are profoundly relevant today,” something she seeks to demonstrate daily to her undergraduate students. For a photo gallery and more.
