Robert Ball & Erica Jong
The final Faculty Lecture for the Spring 2010 semester, Erica Jong, Sappho’s Leap, and I: Interaction of the Novelist and the Scholar, will be presented by professor Robert Ball in Hamilton Library, room 301 on Wednesday, April 21 at 3:30 p.m.
In this scholarly yet semi-anecdotal biographical memoir, Robert Ball describes his professional interaction with Erica Jong as her Classics consultant for her novel about the Greek poet Sappho, explaining how they met, how they collaborated, and how they engaged in other academic activities beyond the publication of her novel.
Robert Ball is Professor of Classics and Chair of the Department of Languages and Literatures of Europe and the Americas. He received the Regents Medal for Excellence in Teaching and an Excellence in Teaching Award from the American Philological Association. He has published five books and numerous articles in his discipline.
The Faculty Lecture Series: Sharing Our Work and Knowledge is presented by the Vice Chancellor for Research and Graduate Education, Office of Research Relations, and the UH Mānoa Library.
