Hall Center presents: Survivor: A Humanities Chautauqua
Special Events

Sat., Oct. 6, 2001, 10:00am - 3:00pm
Location: Jayhawk Boulevard
Who deserves to survive the Humanities Chautauqua? Judge for yourself at the Hall Center tent at the KU Open House, when four renowned humanities faculty each adopt the persona of a different historic individual and attempt to persuade the audience to vote for his or her survival.

Our cast of characters:

Did Lizzy Borden give her father 40 whacks? Find out when Ann Schofield, American Studies/Women's Studies, portrays the gruesome murderess.

In what may seem eerily pertinent to Kansans today, Jeff Moran, History, argues for the right to teach evolution in his role as the lawyer Clarence Darrow.

Turn on, tune in, and drop out when Tim Miller, Religious Studies, portrays '60s guru Timothy Leary.

Stan Lombardo, Classics, as the blind bard Homer, will regale us with tales from epic journeys.
