What happens to days that disappear? Or languages, or people? Is it possible to record everything in our lives, and if it were, would we want to? Drawing on historical sources and her own creative work, Dara Horn will discuss today's technological expectations and their ancient roots, taking us on a journey to an Egyptian room full of dead people's love letters to uncover the meaning of storytelling in Jewish life, and its connection to free will and destiny.
