"World War I as Artistic Crucible" presentation on April 21

Monday, April 18, 2016

KU Libraries will host a talk by Dr. Colin Roust, the second speaker in the spring Gallery Lecture Series lineup on Thursday, April 21 from 1:30-3 p.m. in Watson Library, Third Floor, Haricombe Gallery. Roust, assistant professor of Musicology in the School of Music, will present a lecture entitled “World War I as Artistic Crucible: The early music of Georges Auric (1899–1983).”

Roust will discuss portions of his forthcoming book, “The Music and Politics of Georges Auric.” This talk focuses on how Auric’s experience of World War I shaped his political attitudes and artistic aesthetic from his wartime works to the film scores that he composed.

The Gallery Lecture Series features interdisciplinary lectures and creative works from scholars and researchers across campus. This lecture is free and open to the public and refreshments will be provided. For more information, visit the Gallery Lecture Series webpage
