Patricia Ward, professor emerita, was an invited participant at two colloquia in November.  At the University of Wisconsin (Madison), as a panelist, she spoke on oral and written discourse, “From Reading Homer in Bascom Hall to Experiencing Senufo Culture in Côte d’Ivoire,” at an event celebrating the 100th anniversary of the department of comparative literature.  Then, at the faculty of theology at the University of Geneva, as part of a symposium on “Madame Guyon (1648-1717):  Mystique et politique à la Cour de Versailles,” she gave a paper on “The Quietist in Action.”   This treated the influence of French Quietism on social reform and millennialism in the English-speaking world in the 18th and 19th centuries.
