Kenyon professors and staff will discuss "To What Extent Should Government Control, Sponsor, and Protect the Arts?" on Thursday, October 21, at 7:00 p.m. in Brandi Recital Hall in Storer Hall.
The panel is one in a series of interdisciplinary discussions organized by the Center for the Study of American Democracy (CSAD) at Kenyon. "In a sense, democracy intersects with everything, and the recent creation of the Center for the Arts provides a great occasion to talk about the interrelation of democracy with the arts," said Thomas Karako, CSAD postdoctoral fellow and visiting assistant professor of political science.
The panel includes Natalie Marsh, director of the Center for the Arts; Professor of English Lewis Hyde; Professor of Art History Melissa Dabakis; Professor of Art Barry Gunderson; and Harry Clor, emeritus professor of political science.
The discussion is sponsored by CSAD and the Center for the Arts, and the public is invited to attend.
