Conference |
The last two decades have witnessed a revision in the concept of alterity, decentering the human in how we reckon with the other. Animal studies, artificial intelligence, ecocriticism, etc. not only ask us to consider the possibility of non-human subjects, but also challenge our very humanness and, along with it, the very premises of the humanities and human sciences. What does a non-anthropocentric understanding of the other offer to the field of Slavic studies? And conversely, what can the cultures, histories, and belief systems of Central and Eastern Europe and Eurasia reveal about practices and possibilities of radical alterity?The international conference, All Things Living and Not, brings together senior scholars and emerging researchers from across the U.S. and former socialist bloc to discuss the conjunction between the animal, the plant, the machine, inorganic matter, and the human as a way to destabilize the mind-body dichotomy, class, race, gender, age, etc. Keynote speaker Ewa Domanska (Poznan and Stanford) along with stream leaders Jane Costlow (Bates), Serguei Oushakine (Princeton), and Oxana Timofeeva (European U. in St. Petersburg) will push participants to think through new approaches to the cultures, histories, and politics of the region.

Conference |
Though many women of color professionally engage with their intersectional identities in individualized ways, the unique challenge of double-consciousness is one we all face in our work as advocates. This year's conference will create a space for strategizing around that challenge through several panel discussions. Bringing together academics, legal practitioners, and community organizers, our discussions will center on understanding how we balance our reality as individual citizens who are subject to the law with our role as advocates armed with the power of the law. The conference will open with keynote remarks from Judge Sheila Abdus-Salaam and will include a light breakfast and lunchtime networking event.

After the Cold War, the power of the U.S. has been unrivaled, though never unchallenged. Internationalism dominated American politics. The Bush and Obama administrations pursued different internationalist paths. Their policies yielded mixed results and opened space for what advocates propose as a new American nationalism.

This two-day conference will commemorate the 100-year anniversary of the Ukrainian Revolution and the creation of the modern Ukrainian state.The conference will focus both on the important institutions that were founded under the Ukrainian Central Rada/Ukrainian National Republic, the Ukrainian State of Hetman Pavlo Skoropadsky, the Ukrainian National Republic under the Dyrectoria, and on the individuals that formed them. These state institutions proved to be essential in organizing and giving structure to Ukrainian political, educational, cultural and religious developments at that time. The successes and failures of these initiatives provided models that were both emulated and adjusted in subsequent years and that continue to inform Ukrainian nation-building efforts today.  The conference will examine the lasting impact of these individuals and institutions on Ukrainian culture and scholarship.

Internationally renowned as a brilliant innovator of the classical guitar, Paul Galbraith has been working since the 1980s towards expanding the technical limits of his instrument, besides augmenting the quantity and quality of its repertoire.These efforts have already resulted in a series of critically acclaimed recordings of works by Bach, Haydn and Brahms, along with his own arrangements of folk tunes from various countries, all of which demonstrate the originality of his musical personality. By exchanging the traditional guitar for the eight-string Brahms Guitar, which he helped to develop, Galbraith found the ideal instrument with which to interpret the challenging Classical transcriptions from his highly personal repertoire.

Billy Martin was born in NYC in 1963 to a Radio City Rockette and a concert violinist. At age 17, he devoted himself to music and dove into Manhattan’s thriving, eclectic musical landscape. In the years to follow, he honed his craft everywhere from Broadway orchestra pits to Brazilian nightclubs and burgeoning underground performance spaces.From the roots of the downtown scene he emerged with Medeski, Martin, and Wood, bridging the harmonic complexity of jazz, the conversational fluency of free improvisation, and the groove and swagger of classic R+B and funk. A series of albums and high-profile collaborations with John Scofield, John Zorn, Iggy Pop, Natalie Merchant, and others, brought the band international acclaim.With a steady base as one-third of the renowned experimental jazz trio Medeski, Martin, and Wood, drummer Billy Martin has become one of the most forward-thinking, innovative, and influential percussionists in the music world. His ultra-sensitive, hyper-melodic drumming -- which explores the ideas of jazz, hip-hop, electronica, African music, and other genres -- has an organic feel to it, filled with soft, natural edges and fluid energies.The Eyes of the Masters series is a special class where legendary artists share their experiences, knowledge and insights into the world of music both as an art form and as a career.

Through deeply drawn characters—both real and in the form of artificial intelligence companions, or “Primes” — Harrison burrows into troubling questions of the digital age: What would we remember, and what would we forget, given the power of authorship? Will we be any less human, once computers know us better than we know ourselves?With special guest actress Lois Smith.

The Mass Incarceration Conversation Series presents a virtual experience of solitary confinement, featuring the Incarcerated Nation’s Five Mualimm-ak.We live in a society where, like many things, proof of pain must be seen and quantified in order to definitively exist. But what about the pain that is invisible? Does our inability to see it make it any less real? Solitary Confinement is a dire human rights issue. As social workers and advocates for human rights, it is imperative that we learn how this form of punishment impacts the humans we serve and advocate for. Please join this  opportunity to see what solitary confinement looks like and to appreciate the privilege many of us have in our ability to move freely in this world.Five Mualimm-ak is a Human Rights Advocate and the founder of the Incarcerated Nation Corp.–a collective of those most experienced with incarceration supporting projects that provide direct service to those incarcerated. After returning directly from isolation and incarceration, Five now works to support those who return to society from incarceration and works as a human rights defender to advocate for the human rights of those directly impacted by mass incarceration.

The actress Anna suddenly loses her position at a small German municipal theater. She can expect little help from the local job center –except for a not particularly militant official who works there and is crazy about the theater. Anna takes on the leadership of a drama course for eight long-term unemployed people. At the beginning, none of them respond with any enthusiasm, especially not for the drama play ‘Antigone’, which Anna wants to rehearse with them –yet the skeptical and difficult individuals grow together into a community, which provides them all with a source of hope.

In this program, Juilliard graduate and Metropolitan Opera singer Brenda Patterson, an “out” mezzo-soprano, invites the listener to experience the power and intimacy of art song when it is offered without emotional translation. Using Schumann’s classic song cycle, “A Woman’s Love and Life,” set with new texts by contemporary lesbian poet Emily Moore, Patterson at once effaces and revivifies Schumann’s original masterpiece, reclaiming it as a modern, fully inhabitable work that speaks to our contemporary realities. This cycle will juxtapose against selections from Hector Berlioz and American songwriter Ricky Ian Gordon to explore related themes of intimacy and loss, from poet Théophile Gautier’s romanticized 19th Century “love that dare not speak its name” to the AIDS crisis of the 1990s. Renate Rohlfing will provide accompaniment on the piano.
