Don Saliers (William R. Cannon Distinguished Professor of Theology and Worship, Emeritus) talks about "The Sound of Silence" - its historical context in the 1960s, its theological underpinnings, and his personal connection to the song. "Silence can be a refuge," he says, "and silence can be a phenomenally ambiguous, difficult reality."

Paul Simon delivered the 2013 Richard Ellmann Lectures in Modern Literature at Emory University, September 22-24, 2013. The Ellmann Lectures consist of a series of public lectures that are ticketed but free and open to the public.
