Please join us as we watch live what the judges have determined to be the top creative and well-presented projects.  The students will be judged on their creativity and skills, putting their SLC education to the test.

Led by Gillian Adler, Literature Faculty, this seminar titled "Time and Literature: Fortune, Nostalgia, and the Pleasures of Forgetting in Medieval Texts" will be at 7:00 PM Eastern Time. In the Middle Ages, people balanced a number of temporal systems, telling time by the sunrise and sunset, the planetary motions, the liturgical calendar, and - excitingly, by the fourteenth century - the mechanical clock. As the writings of Boethius and Chaucer demonstrate, medieval people also theorized about the passage of time and the nature of change through poetry and philosophy. Boethius's Consolation of Philosophy (c. 524) and Chaucer's  Book of the Duchess (c. 1368-1372) provide insight into the medieval temporal imagination, exploring the connections between grief, remembrance, and forgetting, as well as the interplay between time and eternity, at the heart of medieval religious and secular writings. This seminar will consider these concepts and situate them in relation to medieval categories of time, including the sacred hours and social tempos, as well as the subjective time of dreams and the apparently objective rhythms of mundane experience. The purpose here is to see, in brief, how these narratives can help us explore the age-old questions of human time. A zoom link will be sent to registrants within 24 hours of the event or email alum@sarahlawrence.edu.
