This year’s Avenali Chair in the Humanities, Harvard art historian Joseph Leo Koerner, joins a panel of scholars to discuss the role of art in a society in which freedom is radically curtailed, such as Nazi Germany and apartheid South Africa. Panelists engage with audience members in lively discussion about creative expression under an emergency “state of siege."

Participants:

Whitney Davis, History of Art, UC Berkeley

Joseph Leo Koerner, History of Art and Architecture, Harvard University

James Porter, Classics and Rhetoric, UC Berkeley

Jane Taylor, Centre for Humanities Research, University of the Western Cape
