The Literary Bob Dylan
On Friday, October 13, 2017 from 7:30 to 9 p.m., Or Emet will host Katelin Krieg, who will present an audio-illustrated talk on Bob Dylan. The presentation will be based on a course that Krieg created at the University of Minnesota and will focus on Dylan’s use of poetic forms, the influence of major literary figures on his work, and the political forces that shaped him.
Katelin Krieg is a Ph.D. Candidate in English at the University of Minnesota specializing in nineteenth-century literature and science. Her dissertation, “Victorian Forms of Thought,” focuses on common ground between literary and scientific writing in the Victorian age, but she is broadly interested in how literature interacts with other forms of art and knowledge, including music.
A short Humanistic Jewish Sabbath service will precede the program, which is free and open to the public. An Oneg Shabbat reception will follow.
Or Emet’s services and programs take place in the Beit Knesset, room M-28, at the Sabes Jewish Community Center, 4330 Cedar Lake Rd. S., St. Louis Park. For more information, contact [email protected] or visit www.oremet.org.
