    Nature vs. Fiction in Sci-Fi Movies

    6:00pm

    Location: 

    Geological Lecture Hall, 24 Oxford Street, Cambridge, MA

    Recent volcanic eruptions in Hawaii and Guatemala remind us of how devastating these geological eruptions can be. Popular culture depictions of volcanic disasters found in movies like Dante’s Peak and Volcano can strongly distort the public’s understanding of volcanic activity and its immediate effects.

    Delaroche’s Egyptian Excursion: Following the Course of Moses Exposed on the Nile

    5:30pm to 7:00pm

    Annual Henri Zerner Lecture

    Paul Delaroche’s Moses Exposed on the Nile, painted for Baron James de Rothschild in 1853, has vanished without a trace. While its memory is preserved in a fine contemporary engraving, an abundant series of drawings leading up to the final composition, which Delaroche developed over at least 10 years, is of equal interest. The drawings reveal the artist’s knowledge of past renderings of the subject, and also illuminate his distinctive method of incorporating paired motifs in his work.

    In this lecture, Stephen Bann, professor...
