    Events over the past year have drawn nearly everyone's attention to the ways we individually and societally deal (or fail to deal) with difficult and uncomfortable realities. In this talk, Alison Stevens will present Sarah Schulman's 2016 book Conflict Is Not Abuse: Overstating Harm, Community Responsibility, and the Duty of Repair, which examines a common pattern of both overreacting to and suppressing conflict. Alison brings Schulmans important analyses to the consideration of recent events, in the firm belief that the path to greatest happiness lies through the discussion of some pain and conflict, not around it.

    Alison Stevens is a PhD student in music theory. Her recent work concerns the importance of dance (and bodily movement in general) in human experience and comprehension of music, plus how to keep herself reasonably clean and well-fed during a global pandemic.

  • Unless otherwise noted, all of our lectures are free to attend and do not require registration.
