Colin McAllister​​​​​​​
Assistant Professor of Visual and Performing Arts / Music
Wednesday, June 22 at 6pm.
The Apocalyptic Other: Nostos, Gog and Magog, and Reflections from the Age of Covid

Ranging from Homer’s Odyssey to the enigmatic poetry of holocaust survivor Paul Celan in a presentation that is equal parts historical essay and elegy, Colin McAllister reviews our recent experiences as scholars of apocalyptic thought living through what felt like an apocalyptic moment, in the process drawing into his discussion Gog and Magog, two demons of the eschatological imagination. At the end of a journey of terror, trauma, isolation, and loss, McAllister finds space for hope and redemption, and that is the best of what apocalyptic writing can do.

Free of Charge – Refreshments will be provided
