Christopher Hamlin: More Than Hot: A Short History of Fever

Date: 
Wednesday, December 3, 2014 - 2:30pm
Program: 

Is it getting warm in here or is it me? We have all experienced fevers and don’t think much about them, but centuries ago fevers were feared because they were poorly understood and could be life threatening.  Fevers weren't a symptom, they were the disease itself. Tonight on Inquiry we talk with CHRISTOPHER HAMLIN, Professor of History at the University of Notre Dame. His latest book is titled MORE THAN HOT: A SHORT HISTORY OF FEVER. This fascinating history traces the evolution of different culture’s theories about why we get warm and weird when we are sick.

Tre Corda

Date: 
Thursday, December 11, 2014 - 6:00pm

Whether reinventing jazz standards, breathing fresh life into classical repertoire, or premiering their own original works, Tre Corda generates a compelling sound all its own. Their works blend composition and improvisation in new and unexpected ways, using the musical vocabulary of classical composers like Bartok and Stravinsky, as well as songs and ideas from the worlds of jazz and popular musics.
