Ok, so this isn’t directly related to our class, but it’s an event well worth attending.

Screening of Margarethe von Trotta’s HANNAH ARENDT

6:30 pm on Tuesday, November 12, 2013
9:30 pm on Tuesday, November 12, 2013
COM 209, 640 Commonwealth Ave, Boston
Co-Sponsored by The Center for the Study of Europe. Synopsis from Zeitgeist Films: In the award-winning HANNAH ARENDT, the sublime Barbara Sukowa reteams with director Margarethe von Trotta (Vision, Rosa Luxemburg) for a brilliant new biopic of the influential German-Jewish philosopher and political theorist. Arendt’s reporting on the 1961 trial of ex-Nazi Adolf Eichmann in The New Yorker—controversial both for her portrayal of Eichmann and the Jewish councils—introduced her now-famous concept of the “Banality of Evil.” Kosher pizza will be provided and we will host a discussion after the film with BU Professors Pnina Lahav (LAW), Deeana Klepper (CAS Religion/History), and Abigail Gillman (Modern Languages and Comparative Literature).
