About Us

“The sun is but a morning star.” Walden’s famous last line points eastward to the sunrise; but Henry David Thoreau also wrote of the west, the sunset, and day’s end. To mark Thoreau’s bicentennial year, this conference poses the question: How can we read Thoreau from the sundown side, the far west of his imagination? Can we see, in the awakening light of the sunset, another anticipation of the dawn? The conference was held at The Huntington April 7–8, 2017.
