Thalmann, Professor of Classics and Comparative Literature, in a conversation moderated by Dr. Selma Holo, Director of the College’s International Museum Institute and USC Fisher Gallery, about heaven and hell in the Judaic and Christian traditions. Michael Mazur’s haunting etchings of Dante Alighieri’s Inferno will surround the audience during this rapturous discussion.
