About the Event

Join us for a conversation with historian Brad Bolman about Thomas Mann's The Magic Mountain, a novel that powerfully explores themes of illness, death, time, and love. Together, we will discuss what Mann’s work might have to say about our contemporary experience of uncertainty, lingering illness, and social upheaval in this pandemic era. The conversation will preview Bolman’s upcoming course The Malaise of Illness: Reading The Magic Mountain During COVID.
