Belmont University recently announced the theme and program schedule for its Eighth Annual Humanities Symposium, which this year will feature talks by Pulitzer Prize winning poet Mary Oliver. Centered on the concept “Nature and the Human Spirit,” this year’s Humanities Symposium occurs Sept. 13-21 and parallels the overall university 2009-10 academic concentration on “A Paradise Lost? Environment, Ecology and Sustainability.” The Humanities Symposium seeks to fulfill the classical definition of what a symposium should be: a gathering of friends for the purpose of intellectually stimulating conversation on a matter important to humanity, time and place. More than 25 academic lectures and special events will be held during this year’s eight-day symposium, including Oliver’s appearances, student readings, nature walks, art exhibits and the viewing and discussion of recent film Into the Wild.
