Are You There, Mcphee? IN CONVERSATION:
Playing with the Memory Play
Saturday, May 19
Directly following the 3pm performance; approximate start time 5:30pm
Join us for an engaging and provocative on-stage conversation about the big ideas and themes explored in Are You There, Mcphee?
|Cultural critic Dr. Henry Giroux, whose many influential books include The Mouse That Roared: Disney and the End of Innocence; Stealing Innocence: Corporate Culture's War on Children; and Youth in a Suspect Society.|
|Dr. Marita Sturken, chair of Media, Culture, and Communication at NYU’s Steinhardt School of Journalism. Her many groundbreaking books and articles investigate links between cultural memory, national identity, and visual culture.|
|Dr. Uri Hasson, Assistant Professor of Psychology and the Princeton Neuroscience Institute. Some of Dr. Hasson’s recent work explores the ways in which story-telling creates sympathetic neural activity between the teller and listener.|
We encourage you to attend this panel discussion on May 19 regardless of when you see Are You There, McPhee? The event is free and open to the public; no rsvp required.
The In Conversation series consists of illuminating symposium-style discussions among leading scholars, artists, and other public figures that foster cross-disciplinary exploration of big questions and concepts in McCarter’s plays. The 2011 – 2012 In Conversation Series is made possible by generous support from the Lewis Center for the Arts, and is produced in partnership with the Princeton University Art Museum’s year-long project Memory and the Work of Art.
