John Updike will deliver the 37th annual Jefferson Lecture in the Humanities on Thursday, May 22. In the lecture, entitled "The Clarity of Things," Updike will examine the connection between America's art and its ideas by posing the question, "What is American about American art?" Updike has published several books of art history and criticism including Just Looking: Essays on Art (1989) and Still Looking: Essays on American Art (2005). His new novel, The Widows of Eastwick, will be published this fall by Knopf. The annual NEH-sponsored Jefferson Lecture is the most prestigious honor the federal government bestows for distinguished intellectual achievement in the humanities.
