Lawrence University, through the Seeley G. Mudd Library, is presenting a 6-week program on the genesis and influence of American popular music and how it is deeply connected to the history, culture, and geography of the United States. Told through award-winning documentary films, each program will feature an introductory talk by Visiting Assistant Professor Erica Scheinberg, the film screening, and a discussion afterwards.
This weekly series is free and open to the public and will begin Thursday, January 31, 2013 at 6:30 p.m. All programs will be held in the Warch Campus Center Cinema except the February 28th program which will take place at the Appleton Public Library.
