Where Art Thou: Elizabethan Lute Edition

New York City is packed with amazing culture and inspiring art, but sometimes it’s difficult to break the Morningside-bubble and experience it all first-hand. “Where Art Thou” is a weekly guide to interesting and notable lectures, events, and performances for the literary/musically/theatrically-inclined on campus.

On Campus:

  • As part of the Butler Banner Project, Chair of Lit Hum, Prof. Julie Crawford will be giving a talk this Monday called Revising the CoreShe will explain how she conducted the syllabus review for Lit Hum, and how she made the decision to bring Toni Morisson into the curriculum. Monday, 6:30 PM in Butler.
  • Join Dael Orlandersmith this Wednesday, 6 PM in the Lenfest Center for a talk called Racial Profiling in Theatre. The Pulitzer finalist and Obie winner will look at “how the boxes around gender, orientation, race, and ethnicity that were intended to foster inclusion, complicate theatre-making.”

Off Campus:

  • If you haven’t gotten a chance to check out the Downtown Brooklyn Arts Festival, it continues tomorrow and Sunday with an eclectic lineup of artists, writers and performers from Downtown Brooklyn’s downtown arts scene. Full schedule here.
  • I haven’t been able to stop thinking about Elizabethan lute composer John Dowland ever since I saw this meme. Can someone please go to the Svenska Church this Friday, where quartet Abdenmusik explores music from his collection, and figure out what he’s all about? Thank you. Tickets $10.
