On behalf of the Kay Fellows program, Dean Birren would like to invite you to a lunch to highlight the work of your colleague, Ian Hopper, Florence Levy Kay Fellow in Modern Britain and the World from 1750. Ian, as many of you will know, holds a joint faculty appointment in the Department of History and in the International and Global Studies (IGS) Program.This is an informal event, intended to increase awareness of the Kay Fellows and their interdisciplinary scholarship. It takes the form of a light lunch and a 30-minute presentation by Ian, followed by discussion time. The title of Ian’s talk is“‘Liberty against Bureaucracy’: the English voluntary principle and its demise in the Great War.”The presentation will take place on Tuesday, November 19, 2013 at 12:30 pm in the Geller Conference Room, Hassenfeld. We have the room for ninety minutes, but you would be just as welcome to attend part of the presentation if you were unable to attend it all.For catering purposes, it would be helpful if you would respond to Lorna Laurent (firstname.lastname@example.org) ASAP.We very much hope that you will be able to attend, and look forward to hearing from you.
