NDSU's history, philosophy and religious studies department's second colloquium of the school year features John Palmer of Sonoma State University. His talk, "Your Beethoven Is Not My Beethoven: Political Expansion and Exploitation of the Beethoven Myths," will examine militaristic and poetic interpretations of the composer's works and the political motivations behind these commentaries. Palmer also considers various expansions and uses of both music criticism and Beethoven myths for political ends.
The colloquium is scheduled for Friday, Oct. 16, at 3 p.m. in the Memorial Union, Room of Nations. All members of the university community and public are encouraged to attend.
