The Liberal Arts Symposium


Weeklong program for the

20th Annual Liberal Arts Symposium:


This year’s guest is rock 'n' roll photographer Henry Diltz. He will be sharing stories and photographs from his career and will be accompanied by a student ensemble.

This event will be held on Friday, April 11, at 10:00 a.m. in David Friend Recital Hall, at 921 Boylston St.

In addition to this event, we will exhibit photographs by Henry Diltz in Gallery 7-H (7 Haviland, 3rd floor). The official opening will be held on Tuesday, April 8, at 6 p.m. and the photographs will be on display through the end of the semester.

On Wednesday, April 9, we are pleased to host two events:

  • Tom Palaima, director of the program in Aegean scripts and prehistory and Robert M. Armstrong professor of classics at the University of Texas at Austin, will give a lecture entitled “Bob Dylan: The Woody Guthrie of the Inner Self.” This event will be held at 6:00 p.m. in 150 Massachusetts Avenue, room 126.

  • The lecture will be followed at 8:00 p.m. by a showing of Henry Diltz’s documentary Under the Covers. The film showing will be in the Stan Getz Media Center, also located at 150 Massachusetts Avenue.

We hope you will be able to join us for this exciting series of events.
