  • 3:30pm: “World as Will and Knowledge: Hans Reichenbach’s Political (?) Philosophy of Science” by Alan Richardson (University of British Columbia)
  • Image preview 7:30pm - 9:30pm: Paul Roberts (Concert Pianist)

    Paul Roberts presents a recital ranging from innocence to experience, from the miniature to the monumental, from the stories of childhood to the tragic power of epic poetry.

    Liszt’s Sonata in B minor, first published in 1854, is one of the greatest piano works of the 19th century, celebrated for its emotional power and an architectural strength that alternates formidable virtuosity with exquisite poetry. In Liszt’s lifetime the Sonata was regarded as a descriptive work inspired by Goethe’s tragic drama Faust, one of the pinnacles of German literature. Though Liszt never made this connection himself, there is ample evidence to show that he was deeply fascinated by Faust throughout his life. Roberts, who is currently writing a book, Reading Liszt, will examine the literary background and suggest that the Sonata might be interpreted in operatic terms, with the main characters of Goethe’s drama—Faust, Mephistopheles and Gretchen—as the protagonists.

    As an antidote to Lisztian extroversion his recital will begin with Debussy’s charmingly modest and witty Children’s Corner, six miniatures dedicated to Debussy’s five-year-old daughter depicting the toys and fantasies of her nursery. The dedication reads: “To my dear little Chouchou with fond apologies from her father for what follows.”

  • Image preview 3:30pm: “’By the Sweetness of the Tongue’: Stories, Lives, and Hindu Holy Women in India” by Antoinette E. DeNapoli (University of Wyoming)
    This presentation calls attention to the uncommon religious lives and worlds of Hindu holy women (sadhus) in India. As sadhus, these women practice an unconventional religious way of life known as renunciation. Sadhus in India are overwhelmingly men, and the elite religious institution in which they participate has traditionally excluded women from its ranks and leadership roles. How do female sadhus create their religious authority and earn the respect, trust, and devotion of their communities and, more generally, the society? How do their practices spotlight a female tradition of renunciation that offers an alternative to the dominant male traditions of renunciation practiced in India? In this presentation, Dr. DeNapoli presents the oral life histories of the female sadhus with whom she has worked over the last fifteen years in the North Indian state of Rajasthan. Through an exploration of the sadhus’ personal narratives, DeNapoli brings to light the cultural-religious categories, idioms, and mythic models through which female sadhus make sense of their worlds and their renunciation. Drawing on the metaphor of “singing to God,” which the sadhus foreground in their stories, DeNapoli shows that what it means to be a female sadhu in India involves performing the kind of radical devotion exemplified by the extraordinary lives of legendary female devotees.
