A discussion of the modern mind will close out the Spring 2014 Public Astronomy Lecture Series set 7 p.m. Thursday, April 24, at the Center for Earth & Space Science Education at Tyler Junior College.

Admission is $5, or free with a valid TJC ID.

T.J. McLemore, director of the TJC Honors Program and English professor, will present “A Conversation Out of School: The Debate Over C.P. Snow’s Two Cultures and the Molding of the Modern Mind.”

After completing his bachelor’s degree at Baylor University in 2006, McLemore spent four years living on community farms, touring with an indie rock band, and working as a ghostwriter and freelance editor. He earned his Master of Fine Arts in creative writing (poetry) at Boston University in the fall of 2011, and he is currently working to complete his first book of poems. His critical volume on the poetry of Louise Glück is forthcoming from the University of South Carolina Press.

The Public Astronomy Lecture Series (PALS) began in 2004 and continues today as part of the science and education outreach of The Center for Earth & Space Science Education at Tyler Junior College. Lectures and demonstrations are presented throughout the semester by academic experts and scholars who speak about timely and interesting topics related to science, education, and public outreach.
