This season at New England Conservatory, 30+ concerts demonstrate just how vital music is to human struggle, and what revolution in artistic expression sounds like. Programs range from roots music to Beethoven, fight songs to anti-war anthems. Join our year-long exploration of how music speaks truth to power!

Women and Literature

Ethics and Environment in American Literature

Liberal Arts students from Jill Gatlin’s courses on “Women and Literature” and “Ethics and Environment in American Literature” present original creative work and scholarship.

Reflecting on the ways race, class, gender, and sexuality shape personal, cultural, political, and ecological lives, students will discuss the importance of literature, music, and visual culture (including comics!) to social and environmental justice.

These diverse forms of expression offer limitless ways to tell truth to power and revolutionize our relations to other humans, to social institutions, and to nonhuman nature.
