Two disciplinary perspectives- one topic!

Join Tom Lutz (Creative Writing) and Judith Rodenbeck (MCS) in a conversation on boredom and it’s virtues– or lack thereof.

Tom’s view: Boredom has no virtues. ‘Idleness’ can be an important incubator of inspiration and change but ‘boredom’ almost by definition leads nowhere.

Judith’s view: Boredom can only sustain itself through lack of commitment. The minute you commit yourself to staying with the boredom, in the boredom, bored, you are doing something interesting.

Moderator: Georgia Warnke, Director, Center for Ideas and Society

Part of the Palm Desert Lecture Series
