The relationship between the arts and contemporary society is constantly evolving, changing to reflect vast societal and political changes. But what effect has the mass media and rapidly changing technology had on these relationships? What about the growing trend to globalization? What is the future of the arts and the very nature of creativity?To address these concerns, and more, The Center for Advanced Study, Krannert Center for the Performing Arts, and the Office of the Dean of the College of Fine and Applied Arts are joining together to bring major cultural figures and public intellectuals to campus in a vibrant new forum called Culture Talk. These internationally renowned speakers will join UIUC faculty members to embark on a series of wide-ranging public dialogues about cultural production and its place in our society. As with all CAS events, this series is free and open to the public.
