<>Chicago Humanities Festival
<>Chicago Humanities Festival
Chicago, Illinois, USA
Early November
TIME pervades virtually every aspect of our lives. In recognition of the Festival's 15th anniversary in 2004, the CHF celebrates – through the perspective of the arts and humanities – the notion of TIME and its ongoing impact on our endeavors, passions, and beliefs. Festival topics this fall include: the "ages of mankind" from pre-adult to extended old age; the role of ancestry, heritage, and legacy in the forging of individual identity; current scientific thinking on the shape and direction of time; fantasy, science fiction, and alternative experiences of time in fiction; selected annals in the history of radical movements; "doing time" behind bars or in other forms of captivity; finding "sacred time" in our accelerated existence; the history of timekeeping; the appeal of memoirs, diaries, and historical fiction; and the myriad other expressions of TIME in music, philosophy, art, film, performance, anthropology, archaeology, public policy, philosophy, popular culture, and other disciplines.
