Spring Colloquium Series Kicks Off

Marilyn Thomas presents the findings of her research to the Menlo community.

February 24, 2012

The Spring Colloquium Series kicked off yesterday with a presentation from Marilyn Thomas, Ph.D., Dean of Arts & Sciences, titled “Looking for a Diary in Secret Code From Victorian England.” She spent six years in England searching for and then decoding the diary written by a cleric F. W. Robertson.

“One could teach the history of England by teaching the history of the Shuckbrugh Hall, the house built in XIII century and now owned by Robertson’s great-great-grandson,” said Thomas. “Reading about history is one thing, but seeing history through the eyes of somebody who lived it is something else.”

The Colloquium Series is open to all Menlo students, faculty, and staff. The series allows scholars to discuss their research in an informal setting with peers, students, and the community-at-large. All presentations start at 4 pm and are held in the Brawner Hall Board Room. Refreshments will be served.
