HAMMOND – Martie Fellom, Southeastern Louisiana University Woman’s Hospital Endowed Professor in Humanities, will present a lecture entitled “The Last Dance” on April 18 in the Student Union Theatre.
Scheduled for 3:30 p.m., the lecture is free and open to the public and is the first of three annual lectures that Fellom will give as part of the endowed professorship.
“’Dance for Thought’ addresses choreography created as social, political, and global commentary,” said Fellom, a professor of dance. “This first lecture is a presentation of dances on the topic of death and dying.”
Rebecca Hensley, instructor in the Department of Sociology and Criminal Justice and faculty advisor for the Southeastern Sociological Association, invited Fellom to present the lecture.
Sponsored by the Southeastern Sociological Association and the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, the lecture is one hour, followed by a 15-minute question and answer session.
