The 2019-20 Bridges Lecture Series presents The Glass Problem: Changing and Challenging Material Definitions. Despite thousands of years of history, glass still challenges our perceptions and definitions. Drs. Patrick Charbonneau and Katherine Larson tackle “the glass problem”, to explore and understand the mutable properties of a material which is, by definition, disorderly.

Join the Waterloo Centre for German Studies as Professor James Diamond, Chair of Jewish Studies at the University of Waterloo, gives his talk, The Buried Raging Sermons of the Warsaw Ghetto Rabbi. During World War II, a group of poets, artists, and historians in the Warsaw Ghetto buried thousands of documents attesting to their suffering and resistance as Jews under Nazi rule. Among those recovered was a manuscript of weekly sermons delivered in the Ghetto by a Hasidic rabbi desperately trying to preserve his faith in the face of unimaginable loss and pain. It is a rare testament to one human being’s struggle with the incomprehensible evil of the Holocaust.

The Theatre and Performance program presents Anton Chekov’s The Seagull directed by Matt White who gives a Canadian contemporary re-contextualization to this late 19th century tragi-comedy. It's a story that exposes the absurdity of a world where grown-ups behave like children, and the next generation grows up having to find their own way.
