Faculty Works in Progress: Dr. Norton on Sophia Little and the Temperance Novel

Thu, Nov 21, 2013, 3:00 PM - 4:30 PM

Join Dr. Eric Norton, instructor in the Literature, Language, and the Humanities Department, for a lecture on Sophia Little’s 1854 temperance novel, The Reveille. His research looks at temperance novels in cultural context.

The Reveille is a story about alcohol, gossip, spying, cross-dressing, bottle smashing, mob violence, women’s rights, homemaking husbands, and greedy capitalists out to seduce the sober.

Refreshments will be provided.
