Jay M. Winter, the Charles J. Stille Professor of History at Yale, is considered one of the world’s foremost specialists on World War I and its impact on the 20th century. He will deliver a lecture on the use of the phrase “The Lost Generation” and the language associated with the thousands of men who lost their lives – how it is applied, and, in using it, what emotions are evoked? University of Auckland’s Seelye Charitable Trust Fellow, Winter says that almost a century on, the evocation of a Lost Generation still has significant power.
Performing on the evening are Beyondsemble, a fresh new band playing some of the most exciting, energetic and enchanting acoustic music to come out of NZ in recent times. Specialising in diversity and with a strong improvisational edge, their repertoire covers a vast scope of styles including Gypsy, Eastern European, Latin, tango, pop, jazz, swing, rocksteady, bluegrass and Celtic music.
