Anthropologists go to “the field” to find knowledge. Historians go to the archive. Really?Of course, this simplistic dichotomy fails to capture the complexity of the research practices of anthropologists and historians, let alone interdisciplinary scholars. Still, what does the anthropologist do in the archive? (How) is that different from what historians do? Anthropologist and oral historian Amy Starecheski will use the research for Ours to Lose as a case study to explore these questions. Starecheski started her research with oral histories and papers archived at the Tamiment in the Squatters Rights Collection and she when she was done she archived all of the oral histories she conducted there.In this multimedia event, Starecheski will play some audio from the oral histories and share some key documents from the collection, showing how she put archival research and oral histories in conversation to make sense of one particularly dramatic story: that of how a group of squatters in five buildings on East 13th Street mobilized their labor and their history to make a precedent-setting adverse possession claim on their buildings in the mid-1990s.

Lecture |
Russia’s “hybrid war” against Ukraine caused more than a million refugees to flee from the Crimean peninsula and Donbas region. Artists were among them. While coping with the challenge of unbelonging to a new social environment with a failed state system unprepared to embrace them, some of the refugee artists used this situation to fuel their creativity and explore quite new and unusual forms of expression. Some examples include the Izolyatsia (Isolation) group evacuated from the Ukrainian city of Donetsk, now occupied by Russia-backed fighters, who figured out a way to fight back by staging a mock occupation of the Russian pavilion at the Venice Biennale of 2015. Based on interviews with Ukrainian refugee artists, this lecture explores the change in their creative approaches caused by the experience of displacement and war.Speaker Nazar Kozak is a senior research scholar at the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine. He has also taught art history in the Ivan Franko National University of Lviv. His current research focuses on post-Byzantine iconography and contemporary activist art. Presently, he is a Fulbright scholar in the Ukrainian Museum in New York.

In the 18th century, Bridgetown, Barbados was heavily populated by both enslaved and free women. Marisa J. Fuentes, author of Dispossessed Lives: Enslaved Women, Violence, and the Archive, takes us through the streets of Bridgetown with a runaway; inside a brothel run by a freed woman of color; to the gallows where enslaved people were executed; and within violent scenes of women’s punishments. In the process, she interrogates the archive to expose the ongoing effects of white colonial power that constrain what can be known about these women. Fuentes, Associate Professor of Women’s & Gender Studies and History at Rutgers University, will be in conversation with Jennifer L. Morgan, Professor of Social and Cultural Analysis and History at New York University.
