The Inaugural Year: Will Gibbons Lecture—Gamifying Classical Music and Classifying Game Music

Library Meeting Room aka Pillow Room

Open to the public

/ Thursday

5:15pm-6:30pm Add to calendar

Classical music is everywhere in video games. From early arcade classics, to obscure indie titles, to major franchises like BioShock and Civilization, soundtracks are full of classical work. World-renowned classical ensembles perform concerts of game music to sold-out audiences. But what do these combinations of art and entertainment reveal about the cultural value we place on these media? Can classical music ever be video-game music, and can game music ever be classical? By delving into the shifting and often contradictory cultural meanings that emerge when classical music meets video games, this talk explores instances where the lines between the “art” of classical music and the “entertainment” of video games is blurred.

LaShonda Barnett MA ’98 Lecture—The Yellow Brick Road to Gilded-Age Research at Chicago’s Newberry Library (Women's History Colloquium)

Slonim Living Room / Stone Room

Open to the public

/ Thursday

6:00pm-8:00pm Add to calendar

During the Gilded Age, ideas of gender and gender relationships shifted drastically in both public and private spheres. The largest wave of immigration from Europe mixed into a population that had been primarily Anglo-and-African American. Add to this heady current, the development of mass consumption, leisure, and the working-class response. Relations between different ethnic groups of women, different classes, and the way power dynamics shaped those interactions complicated women’s social and political struggles. Primary sources such theatre, print culture, womens’ diaries, maps, and photographs, illuminate dramatic life stories bursting at the seams of early twentieth-century Chicago, a setting in Barnett’s novel-in-progress, God’s Folly.
