  • The Music of Stevie Wonder

    The Music of Stevie Wonder

    February 27, 2015
    Professor Matthew Allen and Wheaton student musicians pays tribute to one of America's great composers, arrangers, and artistic visionaries. Stevie Wonder leapt into the forefront of American popular entertainment with his debut on Motown Records at the age of 11. By the time he turned 21 he was writing compositions of great musical and lyrical depth such as "Visions," "Sir Duke", and "Village Ghetto Land". His 1976 double album "Songs in the Key of Life" has been compared by many critics to the Beatles' "Sergeant Peppers" as a vital cultural document of a generation.

  • Contemporary Art: How does it become art history?

    March 17, 2015
    Peter Kalb, Cynthia L. and Theodore S. Berenson Associate Professor of Contemporary Art Dept. of Fine Arts, Brandeis University, Author, Art Since 1980: Charting the Contemporary

    Dr. Kalb will address the ways in which undergraduate art history textbooks are researched, written, and published, within a larger contextual discussion of how contemporary art is taught at the university level. Who is represented by those texts and why? He will also address the ways in which the traditional art history model of the survey is responding and adapting to digital resources and online courses, which are increasingly accompanying, and perhaps eventually replacing, print textbooks. He will also be advising students on best practices.
