Baylor Doctoral students Rex Carr (Political Science) and Jeremy Leatham (English) will present in this semester’s Graduate Student Panel.

Rex Carr will present “Overcoming the Past: Nietzsche’s Creator and the Contributions of Christianity.” This talk explores how Nietzsche’s vision of the future and the “overman” are a creative re-crafting of the West’s Judeo-Christian inheritance.

Jeremy Leatham will present “Newborn Bards of the Holy Ghost: The Seven Seniors and Emerson’s ‘Divinity School’ Address.” This talk discusses Emerson’s famously controversial ‘Divinity School Address,’ Emerson’s motivations for writing it, and its impact on seven students who heard Emerson’s message.
