Classical music, science, and the creation of colour film - A panel discussion and preview performance

Saturday 26 January 2019, 6.30PM to 9.00pm

Speaker(s): Lisa Peschel (University of York, TFTV), Michael Berkowitz (University College London, Hebrew & Jewish Studies)

A Holocaust Memorial Day Event

Prof Michael Berkowitz investigates the historical engagement of Jews and photography. A major part of this story is the invention of the Kodachrome process by Leopold Mannes and Leopold Godowsky, Jr - otherwise known as Man & God - who were classical musicians, and sons of classical musicians.

The panel will feature Lisa Peschel (University of York, TFTV), Michael Berkowitz (University College London, Hebrew & Jewish Studies) and their artistic collaborators as they discuss two case studies of turning an academic project into public enlightenment, entertainment and impact.

The panel will be followed by the short preview performance of "Man & God", a musical based on the lives of the Jewish inventors of Kodachrome film, Leopold Mannes and Leopold Godowsky, Jr.
