Once again the Paddock Lectures this year will take place in the context of the 2011 Alumni/ae Gathering on October 25 at 8:00 pm and October 26 at 10:00 am and 2:00 pm. IMPORTANT CHANGE: the Tuesday evening lecture will take place in the Chapel; the Wednesday lectures will take place in the Mathews Room, first floor of the Tutu Center. Also, as in the past, classes have been suspended so that students and faculty members may attend these lectures, this year being delivered by the noted scholar, the Rev. Canon Paul Avis. Founded in 1880, the Paddock Lectures are a prestigious and historic event in the academic life of our community. We expect everyone will make a very special effort to attend.
