As part of The Europe Center's ongoing lecture series "Europe Now", Stanford professor Margaret Cohen will bring to light documentary narratives by dive pioneers of the 1920s-1950's (Beebe, Hass, Taillez, Diolé), and why these documentarians turn to a poetic imagery of marvels and enchantments to express aspects of human perception. 

Professor Cohen is Professor of Comparative Literature

Co-sponsored by The Stanford Humanities Center
