Harvard-Lyrica Dialogues

Anyone up for some free music lectures? The aspect that is appealing to me is that they are framed as dialogues, not lectures.

Each Spring, the Lyrica Society for Word-Music Relations organizes a set of
symposia called the Harvard-Lyrica Dialogues, which, through the study of the
interaction of words and music, propose to shed light on timely aspects of
historical, literary and musicological research. This year's series was
inspired by Professor Susan Suleiman's recent book "Crises of Memory and the
Second World War".

The Lyrica Society is pleased to announce its forthcoming Harvard-Lyrica
Dialogues, 2008, themed:
