Thoughtlines: academic thinking outside the box

Series 2 | Episode 1: We are music & resistance with Kenneth Marcus

In this first episode of our second season of the Thoughtlines podcast, we talk about how culture fights back with historian Professor Kenneth Marcus.

As a visiting fellow at CRASSH he’s been exploring what happens when music ‘goes there’ and tackles the horror and heartbreak of war. The ongoing conflict in Ukraine and its musical resistance, rapidly going viral on social media, is effectively his project in real-time. But his focus on the epic pacifist works of Arnold Schoenberg, Hanns Eisler, and Benjamin Britten reminds us that music was shaping the global human rights imagination well before now.

Not only that, it’s also a very effective way to wake up the classroom.

Thoughtlines is available on all major podcast platforms.

Presented by broadcast journalist Catherine Galloway and produced by Carl Homer of Cambridge TV.
