What economic, social, political, and cultural shifts were ushered in by modernity? Why do students need to learn about it? How can books and music help understand the phenomenon? Is modernity inherently tragic? In this episode of The Global Connection, host Anna Sajecki speaks with Dr. Yoav Fromer, from the TAU School of Government of Diplomacy, about his course on Modernity and Its Discontents taught through Tel Aviv University’s International BA in Liberal Arts.
The Global Connection reveals how TAU’s academic community and friends are engaging with this ever-changing world. The podcast features interviews with visiting scholars, international students, TAU professors, and others working on global issues and topics.
