Modern Scholar Series Latest Titles

If you enjoy Smithsonian lectures similar to their Residents Associate program, or wish you had time to enjoy them, the Modern Scholar audio CD series allows you to listen and learn in the comfort of your home or vehicle.

The latest two entries feature
Yale University Professor Harold Bloom discussing Shakespeare's great tragedies-Julius Caesar, Hamlet, Othello, King Lear, Macbeth, Anthony and Cleopatra, and Romeo and Juliet

Dante and His Divine Comedy is discussed by Professor Timothy B. Shutt, currently of Kenyon College. Professor Shutt formerly was a DuPont Fellow at UVA, and a Mellon Post-Doctoral Research Fellow in Virginia.

To date, the library has over 40 titles in this series, covering a broad range of topics from history, religion, politics, philosophy, science, and sociology. Other notable presenters include: Alexander McCall Smith on medical ethics, Deborah Tannen on communication, Joseph Ellis on the American revolution, and Peter Navarro on business and economics.
Each month the library receives two new titles in this audio series from Recorded Books.
