2004 Reunion Discussion: Peter I. Rose ’54 to present “Postmonitions of a Peripatetic Professor” on Saturday, June 5May 28th, 2004 by Pamela McLaughlin
For Syracuse University’s 2004 Reunion, the Library is hosting a book discussion at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, June 5, in the 1916 Room of E.S. Bird Library. Peter I. Rose ’54 will present “Postmonitions of a Peripatetic Professor.”
Peter Rose has spent a lifetime exploring patterns of culture, examining issues of race and ethnicity, working with refugees, teaching sociology, and roaming the world. In his latest book, Guest Appearances and Other Travels in Time and Space, he reflects on his adventures and the formative experiences that led him to a fascination with lives that seem quite unlike our own. In his talk, he will read from “Once an Orangeman . . . ,” a chapter about his days at Syracuse University (1950-1954), and describe a few of his field trips and guest appearances.
