"Memoria and the Great Books Tradition of the University of King's College"
The 2017 Robert Darwin Crouse Memorial Lecture will be delivered by Dr. Paige (Davidson) Hochschild. Dr. Hochschild is a graduate of the University of King's College (BA) and Dalhousie University (MA), and received her PhD from the University of Durham. She currently teaches theology at Mount St. Mary's University in Maryland, with her research focusing especially on Augustine and Origen. Her book Memory in Augustine's Theological Anthropology was published by Oxford University Press in 2012. Paige is among the many students of King's and Dalhousie who studied at the feet of Fr. Dr. Robert Crouse, and we are honoured that she will deliver the 2017 Robert Crouse Memorial Lecture, "Memoria and the Great Books Tradition at the University of King's College." Dr. Crouse often spoke of memoria (memory) and tradition as essential to understanding our present condition and renewing the ground of our future hope.
