Glenn Arbery, Ph.D., the d’Alzon Visiting Professor at Assumption College, will present a the Spring d’Alzon Lecture, Iago's Luck: The Question of Providence in Othello, on Tues., March 31, 7 p.m., La Maison Française on campus. Arbery is the author of Why Literature Matters and the editor of The Tragic Abyss. His edited collection, The Southern Critics: An Anthology, will appear in 2010.
