The Romantics in Our Own Time
Speaker: Simon Schama, University Professor of Art History and History
"When did culture begin to suggest that man was a part of nature not separate from it? When was the sub-conscious "discovered"? When was non-violent resistance seen as "unvanquishable"? When did art become a weapon of opposition? Answer? Two hundred years ago: the time of the Romantics. Their legacy is still very much with us.
EPIC members, faculty, and invited guests speak on topics that range across the academic spectrum and also address issues of particular importance to the retired academic community.
