Juliane Schicker presents lecture9 May 2016
Juliane Schicker, Visiting Assistant Professor of German, presented an invited lecture titled “How to listen to Kurt Weill” for the course “Brecht’s Music, Films and Afterlife(s)” at the University of Minnesota.
In a medium based so heavily in the use of words, how much meaning can be found when those words cannot be understood? This was the question at the forefront of my mind going into Carleton’s first edition of Poetry Without Borders.
Poetry Without Borders invites the Carleton community to recite and listen to poems in a variety of languages other than English. German Professor Juliane Schicker, who first experienced Poetry Without Borders at her former institution, Penn State, organized the event with the help of her German 103 class. Put on in conjunction with National Poetry Month and Poem in Your Pocket Day, Poetry Without Borders promised to be an exciting international experience for all.
