Table of contents What's This?
Lecturers represented in this collection include Svetlana Alpers (art history), Elaine Scarry (human rights and the humanities), Lynn Hunt (the novel and human rights), Hazel V. Carby (racializing subjects in post-World War II Britain), Wendy Doniger (self-imitation in ancient India, Shakespeare and Hollywood), Merce Cunningham (in conversation with John Rockwell, dance critic for the NY Times), and Douglas R. Hofstadter (analogy as the core of cognition).
The Stanford Presidential Lecture Series in the Humanities and Arts brings the most distinguished scholars, artists, and critics of our time to the Stanford University campus for lectures, seminars, panel discussions, and a variety of related interactions with faculty, students, and the community at large. Funded by the President's Office, and administered under the auspices of the Stanford Humanities Center, these programs explore new roles and relations for the Humanities and Arts in the academic community in the 21st Century.
