“Dreams in the 20th Century”


Watch video from the April 6 Thinking Out of the Lunchbox event.

Barbara Hahn, Distinguished Professor, Germanic and Slavic Languages, spoke on ”Dreams in the 20th Century.”

Why write down dreams? Why try to share these strange experiences that determine our nights? Obviously, there is a need to remember and not to forget dreams. So many come down to us, most without any interpretation. Since it is said that each epoch dreams the next: reading the dreams of the last century might tell us a lot about ours.

Thinking Out of the Lunchbox is a series of conversations with David Wood, Centennial Professor of Philosophy, Vanderbilt University.
