Excellent conference, very good speakers and very well attended. Congratulations to Gabriela and her team and BRASA. Well done.
enticing lecture, unfortunate 20 minute absence at the reception -- due to an interviewer who apparently had no misgivings about taking Lakhous away from the 30 people at the reception hoping to speak to our guest.
Great workshop, enthusiastic instructor
An important topic, which drew a crowd of roughly 100 people. Professor Chen argued that the peoples of China and Japan must, in different ways, deal with the national legitimacy narratives that keep the two countries from engaging in a meaningful reflection on the atrocities of the 1937 Nanjing massacre. Further the U.S. must act responsibly toward this history. We all owe an ethical reflection on the events to the vicitims.
Continued discussions from previous sessions, also very good. Watch CornellCast for recordings of all three.
Interesting views on Vikings' origin stories and attitude toward their gods and spirits.
