Lecture |
This presentation will explore some of the ways we can write the history of the ‘Soviet South’, that is, the republics of Central Asia and the Caucasus, into the international history of the Cold War and decolonization. Since the leaders and intellectuals in these southern republics and intellectuals were in many ways similar to that of other post-colonial elites, there are a number of opportunities for comparison. However, because of the centrality of these republics (and their representatives) for Moscow’s Third World policy, there is also an opportunity to consider how they impacted each other. Presenting the history of the Soviet South in this way is not simply a question of shedding new light on an understudied area. Rather, it allows us to consider the histories of the Soviet Union, post-colonialism, and the Cold War in a new way. Looking outwards from the Soviet periphery, we begin to appreciate how Soviet globalization ran not just through Moscow, but also through Tashkent, Dushanbe, and Alma-ata, and Baku. We begin to see how much the Soviet claim to lead the struggle against colonialism shaped politics in the region. At the same time, the comparisons Central Asians and others from the Soviet south drew between their own lands and those of the so-called “Third World” were not always favorable – which in turn played an important role in political mobilization in the late Soviet era.With:Artemy M. KalinovskyAssistant Professor (Universitair Docent) of East European StudiesUniversity of Amsterdam

Since the global financial crisis, there has been a major revival of interest worldwide In the value of public development banks.

Heraldry is often dismissed as mediaeval mumbo-jumbo, difficult to understand, recondite and of no contemporary relevance. But it is a living science and art, a vital tool in genealogical research and paradoxically very easy to understand.Dr. Bruce Durie will explain how heraldry works (law and rules), why there is no such thing as a “Family Coat of Arms," how to get a legal Coat of Arms in Scotland.

I Will What I Want: Women, Design, and Empowerment explores the complex and sometimes-contradictory role that design has played from the mid-Twentieth Century, through second wave feminism, to present non-binary intersections in the pursuit of gender expression and equality for those who have uteruses, menstruate, and/or identify as women.The exhibition features objects, interfaces, and clothing that have sought to enable those who have uteruses, menstruate, or embrace womanhood as independent and creative subjects in a material world largely designed by and for men but consumed by those who identify as women.

Between 2003 and 2010, under President Lula, Celso Amorim was at the forefront of an important period in the history of Brazil’s international relations—one in which the country practiced a newly assertive foreign policy, extending its diplomatic reach to the global stage. This book is a reflection of behind the scenes of global politics, combining detailed accounts of international negotiations with candid and insightful descriptions of the countless world leaders Amorim came into close contact with—including, to name but a few, Hillary Clinton, George W. Bush, Barack Obama, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Tony Blair, Manmohan Singh, Mahmoud Abbas, and Benjamin Netanyahu.

Lecture |
 From the vantage point of racial capitalism, Michael Dawson of the University of Chicago analyzes two competing historical narratives of the capitalist and racial orders. Analyzing these narratives is important, he argues, for understanding some of the central conflicts of our time in the U.S, and elsewhere.Too many Marxists and Afro-Pessimists err by taking the enslavement of the black body as an instance outside of capitalist development either as pre-history (Marx), or as subject to perpetual terror outside the dynamics of a capitalist social order or economic dynamics (the Afro-Pessimists). Dawson then argues that by analyzing each approach’s view on how temporality affects their theoretical grasp of patriarchy, the capitalist social order and white supremacy, but how the depredations of each can be fought.
