Greenwich Village is among Manhattan's most desirable and expensive residential neighborhoods. It's history, however, betrays it's monied status. The Village, with it's quiet, shaded streets, lined with lovely brick and brownstone townhouses, was once the incubating ground of artistic, social and political movements that have helped shape US history. From the Beats to the Folk Movement, from workers rights to gay rights, the Village has often been the center of it all.

Book Reading |
Yifat Gutman offers an innovative analysis of memory, social activism, and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, set in Israel in the first decade of the twenty-first century and based on long-term fieldwork. Gutman explores practices of "memory activism" by three groups of Jewish-Israeli and Arab-Palestinian citizens (Zochrot, Autobiography of a City, and Baladna), showing how they appropriated the global model of truth and reconciliation while utilizing local cultural practices such as tours and testimonies. Through deep ethnographic work, she shows how these activist efforts gave visibility to a silenced Palestinian history in order to come to terms with the conflict's origins and envision a new resolution for the future. This unique focus on memory as a weapon of the weak reveals a surprising shift in awareness of Palestinian suffering among the Jewish majority of Israeli society in a decade of escalating violence and polarization--albeit not without a backlash.

Lecture |
The talk addresses the question of how to read Marx in the light of current discussions about theories of social justice – and vice versa. It argues that Marx saves us from a one-sided and truncated way to think about justice – but that his own thought is in danger of leading to another form of one-sidedness.Speaker Rainer Forst is Professor of Political Theory and Philosophy at the Goethe University Frankfurt. He is Co-Director of the Research Cluster on the ‘Formation of Normative Orders,’ of the Centre for Advanced Studies ‘Justitia Amplificata’, Director of the Leibniz Research Group ‘Transnational Justice’ and Member of the Directorate of the Institute for Advanced Study in the Humanities in Bad Homburg.

During the first three centuries of its history, Coptic, the final stage of the Egyptian language written with Greek letters, was only used for literary purposes and private correspondence but not for contracts between individuals, documents sent by individuals to the authorities, or internal administrative communication—areas in which the Greek language had a monopoly. This situation is unique in comparison with what is observed in other provinces of the Roman Empire and cannot be explained by a legal prohibition.With: Jean-Luc Fournet
