France Field School: Special Guest Speaker

This summer 2015, from June 23-June 26, the English Department’s France Field School will be in full swing with special guest speaker Professor Norman Cornett. Introducing us to Paris’ international jazz culture, Professor Cornett will lead a series of ‘dialogic’ sessions coordinated with a lecture on interwar jazz culture, an outing to a jazz club, and an exchange in person with an invited jazz composer/musician. In the words of Professor Cornett, “A dialogic session enables musicians and listeners to experience a meeting of the minds by creating a non-threatening learning environment where the only wrong question is the unasked question.”
