Guillory at Rhodes



As professor of English at New York University, John Guillory has written extensively on literary theory, in addition to books and essays on early-modern European literature. His Cultural Capital: The Problem of Literary Canon Formation (1993) also won him widespread recognition. But when Guillory visits Rhodes College on Thursday, April 23rd, he’ll be turning to art historian Erwin Panofsky, whose essay “The History of Art as a Humanistic Discipline” (1940) will be Guillory’s jumping-off point in a lecture titled “Monuments and Documents: On the Object of Study in the Humanities.” Guillory’s talk — free and open to the public — is at 6 p.m. inside Blount Auditorium of Rhodes’ Buckman Hall. •
