Forum lines up powerhouse of scholars

The Forum for Contemporary Thought speaker series, already under way, brings poet and literary critic Susan Stewart to U.Va. in March and other scholars and artists throughout the semester. Stewart, who teaches at University of Pennsylvania, will speak on "Iconoclasm, Iconophilism and the Art of the Future" March 10 at 4 p.m. in Wilson Hall Auditorium. She will read from her poetry March 11 at 8 p.m. at the U.Va. Bookstore, with a book signing afterward. Named a MacArthur Fellow in 1997, Stewart has most recently published "The Forest," a book of poetry, and a forthcoming critical work, "Poetry and the Fate of the Senses." Cynthia Schneider, a professor of art at Georgetown, comes next in the series on March 12, with a talk on "Explaining America: Ideas and Icons from Thomas Jefferson to Walt Disney" at 4 p.m. in Minor Hall, room 125. Check calendar for later dates and speakers.
