LEWISTON — Hortense Spillers, Vanderbilt University professor of English, will talk on “Sentiment and Sorrow: What the 18th Century Teaches Us,” at 8 p.m. Tuesday, March 6, at the Olin Concert Hall, 75 Russell St., Lewiston.

Spillers’ work, according to one observer, “has refashioned the meaning and significance of black feminist thought and the unconscious.” A scholar and literary critic, Spillers is known for her writings on African American literature.

The free talk is a joint presentation by Bates and Bowdoin colleges.
