Paige to Present Friday's Faculty Lecture Series

October 10, 2011

Associate Professor of Music Diane Paige will present this month's Faculty Lecture Series at 4 p.m. Friday, October 14, in Eaton Lounge, Bresee Hall.

In "Music and the Holocaust," Paige will consider the role of music int he Holocaust. Specifically, she will discuss "its use in the Warsaw ghetto, the show camp of Terezín, and the concentration and extermination camps of central and Eastern Europe. Music served a multitude of purposes in these settings and audio examples will help to illustrate the stories of the victims of the Holocaust."

Faculty members will discuss recent research in their fields, focusing on philosophy, popular culture, history, English, current events, and music.
