Mary Joe Hughes: The Last Lecture

Loading the player ...

Mary Joe Hughes is an adjunct professor in the Arts & Sciences Honors Program. In this “last lecture” she discusses thoughts prompted by the recent death of her husband. “Grief is a universal experience, and yet, it is intensely private,” she says. “What bridges that gap between the soul's profound solitude on one hand and the human community on the other? That's the question I want to explore.”
