Please check back often to learn about newly scheduled events related to the theme, Envisioning the World We Want.  The following are highlighted events in the Spring Term 2018. 

Gob Squad Collective’s War and Peace
Friday and Saturday, April 6 & 7
8 pm
The Moore Theater, Hopkins Center
Known for devised theater on big topics, this UK- and Germany-based collective uses Tolstoy’s epic as a launch pad for cheeky, insightful new theater. Reenacting the salon that opens War and Peace, the cast selects audience members to join them onstage for drinks, discourse and brief, over-the-top bits inspired by the book. Readings, improv, live video, even a fashion show are woven together to explore Tolstoy’s enduring question: is it possible to be moral in a deeply flawed world?

Carpenter 013

This talk performs a double investigation of historiographic accounts of modern and contemporary art made in North Africa and the Middle East. On the one hand, it considers several artists whose work might be said to operate in the temporality provided by the grammatical "future perfect." On the other hand, it historicizes the role of the contemporary art critic.
