Join us for the Mitchell-Reed Community of Learners lecture "Ethics & the Arts in Eastern Europe" at 12:15 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 2 in the West Library Orientation Room.

This presentation of commentary, video imagery and audio recordings relates to the May 17-30, 2017 study abroad program Ethics & the Arts in Eastern Europe. Fifteen students and 2 Wesleyan faculty – Mark Hanshaw, dean and associate professor of arts and letters, and John Fisher, professor of music – traveled to Leipzig and Berlin, Germany, and Warsaw and Krakow, Poland. For thirteen days they pursued an itinerary designed to maximize learning about their focal topic: the breakdown of ethical values during the era of Hitler, the Nazis, Stalin and the Cold War in Eastern Europe, and the tremendous history of music and the other arts in that region.   

Brown bag lunches are welcome; light refreshments are provided by the Office of the Provost.
