A specialist in postmodernist culture, described as one of the most prolific thinkers of our time and whose work garners universal appeal, is the 2009 Brockington Visitor.

Linda Hutcheon of the Centre for Comparative Literature, Department of English, University of Toronto, will deliver a lecture entitled Ethics and Politics of Reviewing in the 21st Century on Thursday, Jan. 15 at 5 pm in Dunning Hall Auditorium.

Professor Hutcheon will also speak on Adaptations Across the Media: Page to Stage to Screen(s) on Friday, Jan. 16, at 1 pm in room 14 Dunning Hall.

Her interdisciplinary work in the humanities has centred on Canadian literature, Postmodern theory, Parody, Feminism and Opera.

The visitorship was established in 1968 by Colonel R.S. McLaughlin for a five-year trial period in honour of Leonard Brockington, who was rector of Queen's for 17 years. In 1974, permanent funding was received from the R.S. McLaughlin Foundation.
