Rilke and Zeno: Two Talks

Above and below are talks given during my recent graphic novelist's residency at Thurber House in Columbus, Ohio. Tammy Birk (Professor of English, Otterbein University) discusses themes in "Mother, Come Home" while Ryan Jordan (Department of Philosophy, The Ohio State University) examines the nature of paradoxes in general, using Zeno's paradoxes in "The Three Paradoxes" as a launching point.

I wasn't present at the talks but wanted to thank Tammy and Ryan for their time and thoughtful analysis. And of course thanks to Jeff Sims and the people of Columbus Museum of Art for hosting the talks and making the videos.
