A Literary and Cultural Studies Event taking place on Wednesday May 8
The late Carnegie Mellon University English Professor Erwin R. Steinberg was one of the great pioneers of plain language and technical writing in the 20th century. From his earliest teaching and consulting to his long tenure at CMU, he advocated, encouraged, and taught clarity and a user focus in everything his students and his clients wrote. To honor Steinberg, the English Department will host a memorial lecture on Tuesday, April 16 at 4:30 p.m. in Baker Hall's Steinberg Auditorium (A53).
To celebrate CMU's excellence in the humanities, the Dietrich College and the Center for the Arts in Society will host a program and reception featuring A keynote address by Michael Witmore, director of the Folger Shakespeare Library, on "What is Access: Perspectives on the Archive." The program and reception will take place on Friday, February 15 at 4:30 pm in the Giant Eagle Auditorium.
