The annual DeMott lecture, a welcome address for incoming students, will be held on Sunday, September 1, at 4 p.m. in Johnson Chapel, and will be given by Min Jin Lee. The DeMott lecture is open to first year students.
The DeMott Lecture was established in 2005 by Alan P. Levenstein ’56 in honor of Benjamin DeMott, a legendary and much-loved member of the Amherst English faculty from 1951 until his retirement in 1990. The DeMott Lecture seeks to expose incoming students to an engagement with the world marked by originality of thought coupled with direct social action, and to inspire intellectual participation in issues of social and economic inequality, racial and gender bias, and political activism.
