Mysteries of Memory

with Dr. Timothy Stock

The memory is so integral to our sense of self that its loss is often feared more than death, and yet our experience of our own memories, at once unreliable and indispensable, is shrouded in mystery.  Stock traces the history of the concept of memory as it adapts to philosophical revolution, scientific discovery and technological change, and explores how this history illustrates what er can know about the "treasure trove of the mind".

Cabaret in Context:  Culture and Politics Between the Wars

with Drs. Victoria Pass, Leanne Wood and Tom Goyens

Presenters Victoria Pass, Leanne Wood and Tom Goyens explore the tumultuous politics and vibrant culture of Germany and Europe following the "Great War".  They will examine the musical and visual culture of Berlin's cabaret scene, as well as the tensions between decadence and a return to order in Weimar Germany.  They will also share the history of Kander and Ebb's Cabaret, both as a product of the 1960s and as a perennially provocative Broadway revival.
