Laurie Anderson to present Norton Lectures

Teacher Insights

The Charles Eliot Norton Professorship in Poetry presents Harvard’s preeminent lecture series in the arts and humanities called the Norton Lectures. These lectures recognize individuals of extraordinary talent who, in addition to their particular expertise, have the gift of wide dissemination and wise expression.

The next Norton Lectures, in the Spring and Fall of 2021, will be given by Laurie Anderson. Anderson is known as an avant-garde artist, composer, musician, and film director. She is also considered a pioneer in electronic music and has invented several devices used in her recordings and performance art shows.

The 2009-10 Norton Lectures, the first organized under the auspices of the Mahindra Center, were given by Nobel laureate Orhan Pamuk. Since then the Center has hosted William Kentridge, Herbie Hancock, Toni Morrison, Frederick Wiseman, Wim Wenders, and Agnès Varda.
