Scholar in Residence to Speak on Prodigies and the Future of the Liberal Arts

The Phi Beta Kappa Association of Northeastern Missouri will hold the 15th Annual Spring Lecture at 6 p.m., May 1, in the SUB Room 306. The speaker will be Mark Perry, who joined the Truman faculty in 2005 as a McNair Teacher/Scholar in Residence. The lecture's title is "Hackers, Violinists and Other Dime-a-Dozen Prodigies: Where the Liberal Arts Might Go in the Globalization Age."

Perry holds a bachelor's degree in music and physics from Haverford College, and a master's and doctoral degree from the University of Chicago in cultural anthropology and the history of culture, respectively. His current research interests focus on the rise of alternative culture and the growing environmentalist movement.
