Diotima's Dance to the Sea

Thu Aug 9, 2007

I plan to teach a seminar on the interwar apocalypse, broadly considered, in the spring, and, while there’s much to choose from, I’m leaning toward showing at least a clip from one of the Bergfilme. Riefenstahl’s maenadic turn seems to be the most representative. I’m also interested in relating the mountain-cult to the scholarship associating human behavior with climatic differences.
