NASHER MUSEUM—It's time to head to Duke's Nasher Museum for more lessons on the postmodernism of urban popular culture, otherwise known as hip hop and sampling. Duke African-American literature professor Mark Anthony Neal, NCCU hip-hop pedagogue Kawachi Clemons and local DJ/producer Ninth Wonder lead a discussion and demonstration of sampling, both visual and musical. This free event begins at 7 p.m. For more info, visit www.nasher.duke.edu/events.php#feb15-2. —David Fellerath

DUKE CAMPUS—For a severe modernist, T.S. Eliot got around. We all learned about the women speaking of Michelangelo, and there was a little play on Broadway called Cats that had something to do with his writing. Even in the swingin' '60s, Eliot was seen on Bob Dylan's "Desolation Row" having a smackdown with Ezra Pound. Tonight, however, Eliot can be found back in his natural habitat, the cathedral of high culture, here called Duke Chapel. Dr. George Gopen, a renowned expert on The Four Quartets (published together in 1943), will read the poems with live musical accompaniment. Remember this: "If all time is eternally present/ All time is unredeemable." The event, which begins at 7 p.m., is free, but e-mail sksofficers@gmail.com for reservations. —David Fellerath
