Teju Cole, best known for his novel “Open City,” on April 24 delivers the 2014 Kenan Distinguished Lecture at Duke University.

The free lecture, open to the public, is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. at the Fitzpatrick Center’s Schiciano Auditorium on West Campus. Parking is available in the Bryan Center garage. A reception will follow the talk, which is sponsored by the Kenan Institute for Ethics.

Cole’s lecture will focus on themes of identity and technology in a globalized world.

The talk is part of an ongoing lecture series that brings a distinguished speaker to campus each year to address moral issues of broad social and cultural significance. The series is funded, in part, by the William R. Kenan, Jr. Fund for Ethics and is a signature program of the Kenan Institute for Ethics at Duke.
