Faculty Forum on Friday

The first Faculty Forum of the semester is this Friday, September 4, at 4:00 p.m., in Landrum Bolling Center - Room 211. Assistant Professor of Music Liz Lindau will be speaking about her work, “Boring Things: Drone and Repetition in Andy Warhol’s ‘The Velvet Underground.’” Since its rediscovery in 1990, Andy Warhol’s film “The Velvet Underground” (1966) has utterly disappointed journalists, scholars and fans of the band it features. Even within the context of Warhol’s notoriously tedious cinematic oeuvre, critics concur that this document of an aimless hour-long jam session is almost unwatchable. But boredom was a deliberately cultivated state within the Velvets’ avant-garde artistic milieu, where extremes of repetition or stasis were thought to become fascinating if one only endured them for long enough. In a similar way, the presentation argues for “The Velvet Underground’s” potential to be interesting, even captivating. Snacks will be provided.


College Meeting for Worship

College Meeting for Worship is held on Sundays at 1:00 p.m., in Stout Meetinghouse. On September 6, Taylor Satterthwaite, senior Theatre Arts major, will speak on “Quaker Problems: Forgiving My Faith” for the semester-long series on “The Burden of Forgiveness.”
