Twain ponders the early lives of the traditional parents of humanity in his later works, Extracts from Adam’s Diary (1904) and Eve’s Diary (1906). Their roles and their connection to present-day gender issues will be discussed as part of the UCONN Forum at the Mark Twain House, 351 Farmington Avenue, Hartford, Connecticut.
The UCONN Forum at the Mark Twain House is a panel discussion that examines current events through the lens of Mark Twain. Previous sessions have looked at issues of democracy, race and political corruption. Panelists are distinguished academics from the University of Connecticut College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. The panel is chaired by Davita Silfen Glasberg, Dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
Panelists include UCONN’s Gina Barreca, Bandana Purkayastha, Cathy Schlund-Vials, and Dr. Sherry Zane.
