Robert Beachy: Gay Berlin

Wednesday, December 10, 2014 - 2:30pm

Tonight on Inquiry, we talk with ROBERT BEACHY, associate professor of history at the Underwood International College of Yonsei University in Seoul, South Korea. His new book is titled GAY BERLIN: BIRTHPLACE OF A MODERN IDENTITY. It is Beachy’s central argument that our modern understanding of homosexuality and gay culture started in the 19th Century city of Berlin. Berlin became a kind of laboratory of sexuality. This is a fascinating history complicated by the extreme politics of Germany in the first decades of the 20th Century.


It's "the holiday dance classic with an inner-city edge", a Duke Ellington Tchaikovsky soundtrack and members of the famous 50's Do Wop group, The G-Clefs with live musicians. Tony Williams Dance Center presents the 14th Season of Urban Nutcracker featuring an all ages cast in " a collage of classical and contemporary dance" including ballet, flamenco, hip-hop, tap, swing and rhythmic gymnastics.

Note: 12/20/2014 - 11am show is Autism Friendly.

Social Media Privacy

Sunday, December 21, 2014 - 10:30pm

Social media sites, apps, anything you download or sign up for online has a Terms of Agreement. But, unless you have a lot of free time on your hands odds are you have never read a single one in its entirety. Plus, as the terms get updated over time you would have to keep rereading the document to find out what new agreement you are making by using the site or app. Staying on top of personal privacy rights online can be a full time job and is something most people simply do not have time to manage.
