CBC Massey Lectures 2007: Alberto Manguel - The City of Words

Wed, 2007-10-24 20:00 - 22:00
Strathcona Music Building : 555 rue Sherbrooke Ouest Montreal Quebec Canada , H3A 1E3

The end of ethnic nationalism, building societies around sets of common values, seems like a good idea, but something is going wrong. In these lectures, writer Alberto Manguel takes a fresh look at some of the problems we face and suggests we should look at what stories have to teach us about society. "How do stories help us perceive ourselves and others?" he asks. "How can stories lend a whole society an identity...?" From "Gilgamesh" to the Bible, from "Don Quixote" to "The Fast Runner," he explores how books and stories hold the secret keys to what binds us together. Internationally acclaimed as an anthologist, translator, essayist, novelist and editor, Alberto Manguel is the bestselling author of several award-winning books, including "A Dictionary of Imaginary Places" and "A History of Reading." He was born in Buenos Aires, moved to Toronto in 1982 (where he lived for 20 years) and now lives in France, where he was named an Officer of the Order of Arts and Letters. Among other awards and honours, he is

Public lecture - On narrative: Fiction and the brain

Mon, 2007-09-24 18:00
Macdonald Harrington Building : 815 rue Sherbrooke Ouest Montreal Quebec Canada , H3A 0C2

Liam Durcan, Montreal Neurological Institute, McGill University. The lecture will address the premise that, despite the superficial disparities between science and art, in this case medicine and literature, the aims and even the methods of the two pursuits are often strikingly similar. From the increasing influence neuroscience is having on literary theory to the recognition of the importance of narrative in medical training, the boundary between the disciplines is becoming less firmly entrenched, resulting in a growing awareness that each pursuit can be enriched by an appreciation and understanding of the other.
