The classroom is often idealized as a place where an older person transmits knowledge - maybe even sometimes wisdom - to younger people. The dream is worth believing in, but is it possible? Alexander Nemerov, the chair of Stanford’s Art and Art History Department, will reflect on the possibilities and impossibilities of teaching and learning through the use of Diego Velazquez’s painting, the Water Carrier of Seville. Professor Nemerov has taught this painting in a Stanford course called “Dangerous Ideas,” about the role of the humanities in shaping our lives.
