On Monday, Oct. 27, Leon Botstein, president of Bard College and music director of the American Symphony Orchestra, will give a keynote lecture at 5 p.m. at the Auburn University Hotel and Conference Center to conclude the College of Liberal Arts’ commemoration of National Arts and Humanities Month. His lecture, “Speech and Action: The Arts, the Humanities, and Technology in American Political Life,” is free and open to the public with support from the Auburn University Special Lectures Fund. This lecture will explore continuities and discontinuities in the character of public life, the role of traditions, and the place of the university. The shape of our public space and the influence of technology will be explored in relationship to how we think about practice, scholarship, and teaching in the arts and humanities.
