As 2020 draws to a close, we take a look back at the year that has been. One good thing happened this year: the Nobel Prize in Literature was awarded to Louise Glück. Tune into this week's show, "The Examined Year: 2020" to hear some of her poems, including my all-time favorite, “Ithaca.”
What Is It
- The Year in Pandemic Ethics with Karen Stohr from Georgetown University, Senior Research Scholar at the Kennedy Institute of Ethics and author of a coronavirus ethics column for The Washingtonian magazine.
- The Year in Misinformation and Conspiracy Theories with Tamsin Shaw from New York University, author of Nietzsche’s Political Skepticism.
- The Year in Virtual Learning and Communication with Iris Berent from Northeastern University, author of The Blind Storyteller: How We Reason about Human Nature.
Plus poetry from this year's recipient of the Nobel Prize for Literature, Louise Glück (read by Director of Research Laura Maguire).
