ISSI Orientation - Sunday, July 28

We want you to be prepared for your first day of classes so we're hosting an orientation! Meet your instructors, pick up class materials and get a tour of campus all before the first day of classes. We'll be on hand to address any questions you may have and help you prepare for a successful week.

Time: TBD

Lecture with Dr. Rosenberg - Tuesday, July 30

What is all the fuss about Las Meninas? Painted 368 years ago by the Spaniard Diego de Velázquez, this huge canvas (roughly 10 x 9 feet)—the signature piece of Madrid’s Prado Museum—continues to ask big questions, questions that are as relevant in the twenty-first century as they were in the seventeenth. What is beauty? What is art? How does power perpetuate itself and how is art involved in that perpetuation? What is nobility? How do humans represent the human experience, and what are the limits and the challenges of the act of representation? What is real and what is truth? We will explore these questions during our evening together.

Time: 6 PM - 9 PM
Where: On campus at the Duke Theatre
Cost: Free
