Dr. Christina Jarvis will give the 2023 Kasling Lecture: "Peculiar Travel Suggestions: Discovering the Story of Kurt Vonnegut's Planetary Citizenship"

Drawing on intensive study of Vonnegut’s manuscripts at the Lilly Library, this lively and engaging talk explores the origins of the Hoosier icon’s environmental and social justice engagements, the compositional stories behind Cat’s Cradle, and reasons why Vonnegut’s prescient critiques still offer useful wisdom and humor for our own chaotic, increasingly networked planetary moment.

Before the Kasling Lecture, Kasling Award winner, Dr. Christina Jarvis, Professor of English, and Hagan Award winner, Dr. Eliran Avni, Associate Professor of Music Performance, will both be honored at an award ceremony on Wednesday, October 11th at 1:00 pm, in Rosch Recital Hall.
