    The Penn Museum will host the HAIKU conference Friday and Saturday. It’s not about poetry, however. It’s a conference on the Humanities and the Arts in the Integrated Knowledge University.

    Karen Beckman, a professor of cinema and modern media at Penn, offers a preview of the conference during a chat with NewsWorks Tonight host Dave Heller.
