Art + Philosophy

For those looking for a meaty exploration of art’s philosophical implications, the Interdisciplinary Humanities Center at UCSB presents a talk with Dennis Kennedy, professor at Dublin’s Trinity College. The lecture, titled Memory, Performance, and the Idea of the Museum, will explore methods of organizing the space of memory, the relationship of theater festivals to memory, an examination of Hamlet, and the process of forgetting. The thinking caps will go on at UCSB’s McCune Conference Room (Humanities & Social Sciences Building, Room 6020) on Tuesday, October 17 at 5 p.m.
