Home > News & Updates > Havel at Columbia Site Released

September 15, 2006. At the invitation of President Bollinger, Vaclav Havel will spend seven weeks during the fall 2006 semester at Columbia University, participating in lectures, interviews, conversations, classes, performances, and panels centered on his life and ideas. To accompany his residency, CCNMTL and the CU Arts Initiative present Havel at Columbia. This multimedia resource features video interviews with a range of scholars and friends of Vaclav Havel, including Lisa Anderson, George Soros, Brad Abrams, and Chris Harwood, who contribute their insights into his legacy as an artist and political leader. The site also contains a wide range of material about Havel's life and art, including a timeline of events, image glossary, and archival films that can be used in the classroom during and beyond his campus residency.
