Conference |
The conference proposes to investigate the political, aesthetic and epistemological underpinnings of the notion of anachronism, twenty years after the publication of Rancière’s essay. Bringing together variegated perspectives from a wide range of fields – philosophy, literary studies, history, art criticism, geography, political economy, cultural studies – it seeks to explore the contemporary resonances and currencies of anachronism, its various uses and abuses. Does anachronism still retain the status of a “deadly sin” in the field of history and other disciplines? What do instances of anachronism in scholarship enable us to see, what do they obscure? What are the connections, if any, between anachronism and radical equality, between anachronism and the possibility of emancipation? How might anachronism aid us in thinking about the intersections of multiple temporalities; in reconciling various philosophical conceptions and interpretations of time and space; in gauging the links between historiography, realism and literature; in producing theories and practices of revolution? Possible topics include but are not limited to:

Lecture |
Darrick Hamilton (Director of Milano Doctoral Program) will examine the tenuous relationship between racial divisions amongst the working class and racial coalition building to address their collective worsening economic conditions, which may have related to President Donald Trump’s surprise victory; along with a discussion of rising racial disparity with higher levels of education, which is paradoxical to the neoliberal ideology of hard work and education as an anecdote to inequality.

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.

New York City is a mecca for graffiti and street art, making it a very attractive playground for artists from around the world. Bushwick, in a working class district on the north side of Brooklyn adjacent to Williamsburg, has been attracting artists for some time now. The neighborhood has a fair collection of art studios and galleries, but it’s Bushwick’s industrial landscape that’s attracting the street artist. If you came looking for 1960′s Greenwich Village, you’ll find something brewing in Bushwick. Tour takes place Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

In the ruins of the 2007–2008 financial crisis, self-proclaimed progressives the world over clamoured to resurrect the economic theory of John Maynard Keynes. The crisis seemed to expose the disaster of small-state, free-market liberalization and deregulation. Keynesian political economy, in contrast, could put the state back at the heart of the economy and arm it with the knowledge needed to rescue us. But what it was supposed to rescue us from was not so clear. Was it the end of capitalism or the end of the world? For Keynesianism, the answer is both. Keynesians are not and never have been out to save capitalism, but rather to save civilization from itself. It is political economy, they promise, for the world in which we actually live: a world in which prices are “sticky,” information is “asymmetrical,” and uncertainty inescapable. In this world, things will definitely not take care of themselves in the long run. Poverty is ineradicable, markets fail, and revolutions lead to tyranny. Keynesianism is thus modern liberalism’s most persuasive internal critique, meeting two centuries of crisis with a proposal for capital without capitalism and revolution without revolutionaries.If our current crises have renewed Keynesianism for so many, it is less because the present is worth saving, than because the future seems out of control. In that situation, Keynesianism is a perfect fit: a faith for the faithless.Geoff Mann (Simon Fraser University) in conversation with Andrew Sartori (NYU), Clara Mattei (NSSR), and Aaron Jakes (Lang/NSSR)

Lecture |
Paul Celan is perhaps the most important poet to have written in the German language in the 20th century. 2020 marks the anniversary of Celan’s 100th birthday, which will be commemorated worldwide. No other author better presents the history of the last century, especially the experience of the Holocaust. The significance of Celan’s work, his long journey through Europe, and the profound effect of his poems, however, pose challenges to writing his biography. Another aspect to be considered in this context is how Celan’s poetry tends to irritate or even to destroy a common meaning. This lecture will use images to illustrate elements of Celan’s biography, and demonstrate the difficulties in writing it. The presentation and the following discussion with Professor Ulrich Baer will develop a model to describe Celan’s life—focusing on his most famous poem, Death Fugue.This is a lecture by Thomas Sparr, the editor-at-large at the Suhrkamp Verlag in Berlin, on the “Difficulties of Writing a Biography of Paul Celan,” followed by a conversation with Professor Ulrich Baer, Vice Provost for Faculty, Arts, Humanities, and Diversity.

Lecture |
Marginalized strands of the second-wave feminist movement, such as International Wages for Housework Campaign––which included the Wages Due Lesbians and the Black Women for Wages for Housework—advocated for salaried domestic labor. These feminist groups formed in the 1970s to raise awareness of how housework and childcare are the basis of all social reproduction and industrial work. Their demands were, however, often sidelined by mainstream feminist goals like equal opportunity in the labor market. These groups were not only discussion clubs or thought experiments, but real activist efforts whose demands were often expressed through protest songs. Artist Jacqueline Hoàng Nguyễn will discuss her current research on the music these women’s groups created to articulate their frustrations through embodied collective experience. She will be joined in conversation by Amalle Dublon, a PhD candidate at Duke University whose research focuses on sound, aurality, and reproduction in all its valences.
