In the News: Dr. Laity


The English Department’s own Dr. Kathryn Laity will be a keynote speaker later this month at the 20th Anniversary Conference at the Finnish Institute of Japan. The conference focus is Finnish artist Tove Jansson, probably best known as the creator of The Moomins but also a painter and novelist. Dr. Laity’s keynote will be ‘Improvisation is a beautiful word’: Tove Jansson & Living Art Every Day.
