Slonim Living Room / Stone Room

Open to the public

/ Wednesday

To write “as” someone else can be a way to gather illegitimate prestige, or a way to refuse an unwanted stigma, or even a way to call into question the notion of identity itself. In this talk, Paul LaFarge will consider some writers who have assumed false identities, and consider their motives (insofar as they're knowable) and the consequences of their choices, for themselves, their work, and our ideas about literature generally.

The Inaugural Year: Martin Goldray Lecture—Dewey and the Experience of Classical Music

Performing Arts Center Reisinger Auditorium

Open to the public

/ Tuesday

1:30pm-3:00pm

A lecture to be given by music faculty member Martin Goldray. John Dewey's book, Art as Experience (1934), shows how art fits into his pragmatist philosophy, but it's a rather bewildering, if sometimes inspiring, account of art without more background into his thinking than he provides. This lecture will address the relationship of art to pragmatism more generally, explore how performing and listening to classical music might be illuminated by this way of thinking, and show how his ideas about art have resonated in the art world since his death in 1952.
