Join us for an evening of whimsy and rhyme as Professor of German Studies and digital humanist Kent Hooper shares his work building a fully searchable online repository of 250 illustrated editions of traditional Mother Goose nursery rhymes, which will enable scholars to employ data-mining strategies to answer questions and test hypotheses that relate to the large number of rhymes and related illustrations.
Four times each year, the Puget Sound Daedalus Society sponsors an evening of scholarship, debate, and dinner, at which colleagues can become familiar with each other’s areas of research and expertise. Established at Puget Sound in the 1970s, the Daedalus Dinner has become a popular mainstay of the campus calendar covering a wide range of programs and topics.
Dinners are open to faculty and staff members, who are encouraged to bring interested students as their guests. The evening begins at 6 p.m. with wine and hors d’oeuvres, followed by the featured presentation, a catered buffet dinner, coffee, dessert, and discussion. Reservations are $15 per person, and are made a first-come, first-served basis. Spaces for dinner are usually limited to 50, so please make your reservation by Tuesday, Nov. 26. For more information or to make reservations, call 253.879.3207.
