Culture Change, Adaptation, and Image Film Series
Men of Words (2009)

In Yemen, where the tradition of poetry and rhetoric have taken form in the late 20th century as political discourse, audio cassette distributors sell dubs containing ""throw-downs,"" that is, poetic challenges and replies by famed poets. For people in small towns without newspapers, this has become the virtual op-ed section. Dr. Steve Caton, Harvard University, introduces the program and facilitates discussion. Sponsored by the Penn Humanities Forum and the Middle East Center, University of Pennsylvania.

Free with Museum admission.
