GRAUL CHAIR EVENT LISTINGS
- Exhibit of selected Heinrich Böll materials, a notable display in the exhibit, “It Is Time to Effect a Revolution: Selections from the Rose Rare Book Collection and University of Dayton Collections,” September 13 to October 9. The Graul Chair in Arts and Languages joins with Professor Emeritus Robert Conard to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the author’s birth by highlighting this display along with other relevant campus events. In the context of the October 4-7 conference theme “Rhetorics, Rights, (R)evolutions,” Böll’s work asks us to consider the role of literature and the arts as a force for change.
- Kristallnacht Observance – Marking the Night of Broken Glass throughout Nazi Germany in November of 1938 that signified the beginning of the Holocaust – Tuesday, November 7th at 5 pm, Chapel – will include selections by the World Music Choir and a reading by Emeritus Professor of German Dr. Robert Conard of an excerpt from the writings of 1972 Nobel Laureate in Literature, German Heinrich Böll, in which he reflects on the theme of understanding and tolerance, which relates directly to the issues in American society today and to this year’s Humanities Commons theme. The Graul Chair is a supporting sponsor of this Observance.
