Guest Lecture: Latin for (white) Lovers, by Berthold Hoeckner

Friday, February 24, 2023 at 3:15pm

Virtual Event

Latin for (white) Lovers explores Doris Day’s 1965 album Latin for Lovers as an example of mid-century cultural production where whiteness was at work as a musical practice, caught between the American ideal of the melting pot and the reality of America as a mosaic. 

Berthold Hoeckner is the Keough-Hesburgh Professor of Music at the University of Notre Dame and Professor Emeritus at the University of Chicago.  His recent book Film, Music, Memory appeared with University of Chicago Press in the Cinema and Modernity series edited by Tom Gunning.
