What is English and How do We Know?  

If you think you know what English is, you're probably mistaken. Come find out why so seemingly simple a question is in fact not elementary at all.  

Please join us for a lecture by Dr Joshua Katz, Senior Fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, at 5PM on Thursday, November 30th at the Athenaeum, 26 East Gaston Street.

About the Speaker

Joshua T. Katz is a Senior Fellow at the American Enterprise Institute. Prior to this appointment he was Cotsen Professor in the Humanities and Professor of Classics at Princeton University. A graduate of Yale, Oxford, and Harvard, he is widely published in the languages, literatures, and cultures of the ancient, medieval, and to some extent modern world. He is also a regular contributor to such publications as City Journal, First Things, The New Criterion, and The Wall Street Journal.
