This week on Inquiry we have a lively and far-ranging conversation with writer CATHERINE REID. She directs the undergraduate Creative Writing Program at Warren Wilson College. Her new collection of essays is titled FALLING INTO PLACE: AN INTIMATE GEOGRAPHY OF HOME. These essays focus on Catherine’s life and explorations in the Berkshires and hill towns of Massachusetts. But these pieces are much more than writing about the natural beauty of the area and also touch on issues of love, relationships, fragility, community and politics. Her writing is consistently captivating and powerful. Tune in and find out why.
Inquiry welcomes ARTHUR I. MILLER, Professor Emeritus at University College London. Since the 1980s, Professor Miller has been interested in what he calls ARTSCI, the fascinating area where art and science meet. Tune in and learn about some of the artwork produced when artists collaborate with scientists and technicians. Professor Miller’s dynamic history of this work is titled COLLIDING WORLDS: HOW CUTTING-EDGE SCEINCE IS REDEFINING CONTEMPORARY ART.
