Humanities professor shares adventures in Eastern Europe
Eric Furuseth, associate professor of humanities, chronicles his summer travels in "Brother Eric's Eastern Europe Adventure: Browsing Through Bavaria, Bohemia and Bulgaria," on the Northwest Art Center lecture series Oct. 23 at 7 p.m. in Aleshire Theater.
Last June, Furuseth traveled to Munich, Prague and Sofia, Bulgaria.
"My main objective was to visit the great museums and study the artworks in person that I presented in humanities classes," Furuseth said. He will share photos, personal encounters with the culture and songs from the regions he visited - all with a sprinkle of humor, through the eyes of "Brother Eric," his fictitious traveling alter ego.
Furuseth joined the MSU faculty in 1993 and has taught Humanities, composition and literature courses. He holds a doctorate in English, and bachelor's and master's degrees in history. As a humanities professor, he has made several trips to the great museums of the world to study the art treasures of Western history.
The lecture is free and open to the public. An informal reception will follow the program. Parking in campus lots is unrestricted after 5 p.m. Due to construction on 11th Avenue NW., visitors should park in the Old Main loop or in the lots near the university library or east of the Administration Building.
This project is supported in part by a grant from the North Dakota Council on the Arts, which receives funding from the state legislature and the National Endowment for the Arts. For questions, contact email@example.com.
