It is here, as much as anywhere, where American history started. It's where the first US Congress assembled and produced the Bill of Rights and where President George Washington took his first oath of office. It's here where the world's most important stock exchange and one of the most famous bridges stand. And it is here where an unspeakable tragedy took place and where a rebirth is underway.

The three Baltic states of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania share a historically extremely precarious, but also potentially lucrative geostrategic position, which throughout the last several years has become of interest to the promoters of China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). The three “Baltic sisters”, however, are aware of the strategic nature of hard infrastructure precisely due to their peculiar negative experience during both the Soviet occupation and post-Soviet interaction with their direct neighbors to the east. The crucial case of Lithuania as the southernmost and the largest of the three countries demonstrates the nature of the strategic dilemma between opportunities and threats of eastern-bound transnational infrastructural projects. Despite the politically sensitive and opaque option of the BRI, the Balts are forced to prioritize the traditional harder (the so-called “Suwalki Gap”) and softer (e.g. transit of particularly important cargoes) security issues, which China would find hard to fully appreciate. Speaker Konstantinas Andrijauskas is Associate Professor of Asian Studies and International Politics at Vilnius University, Lithuania, and Fulbright Visiting Scholar.

In prisons throughout the United States, punitive incarceration and religious revitalization are occurring simultaneously. Faith-based prison ministries operate under the logic that religious conversion and redemption will transform prisoners into new human beings. Cash-strapped and overcrowded state and federal prisons increasingly relying on ministries to provide educational and mental health services and to help maintain order. These religious organizations are overwhelmingly run by nondenominational Protestant Christians who see prisoners as captive audiences. How do people in prison practice religion in a space of coercion and discipline? What are the legal implications of the state's promotion of Christianity over other religious traditions in some prisons? What role do faith-based groups play in the bipartisan movement for criminal justice reform, and how can faith-based ministries more effectively work on policies to end mass incarceration?Speaker: Tanya Erzen, Associate Professor, Religion and Gender Studies, University of Puget Sound and Executive Director of the Freedom Education Project, Puget Sound.

Lecture |
From Plato to Rawls, political philosophers have focused on justice. And from Cicero to Dwarkin, they have assumed or posited equality as a fundamental requirement for justice, although universal human equality is a very recent posit in comparison to equality within privileged groups. But neither ideals of justice nor equality address injustice when some are treated justly and others are not. Sometimes this contrast in treatment motivates inquiry. For instance: How can formal equality coexist with practical inequality? When is practical inequality unjust? Applicative justice may bridge the gap between those justly and unjustly treated, by applying the rules and practices of justice enjoyed by the former, to the latter. More generally, the progressive theorist should provide a theory of injustice, instead of a theory of justice––there is little if any justification for the claim that we need to understand what ideal justice is, before we can correct injustice. Between ideal justice and real injustice, there are many contending interests and practices and a theory of injustice is thereby required to address those dynamic social structures which result in injustice. Injustice theory should also be able to explain why some forms of disadvantage are unjust, while others may be purely unfortunate, and determine whether this difference between deserts and luck even matters.

Join journalists and professors from around New York in discussing the way that journalism is changing under the Trump administration and in our global political climate. With so much at stake, how can our media counter efforts that threaten freedom of speech and truth? Some subjects to be discussed include what to do when news outlets and journalists are silenced; how to holding governments and representatives accountable for providing the truth to its citizens, and how to recognize and understand propaganda and the role of fake news.The media’s role in this climate is multifaceted and, perhaps now more than ever, of the utmost importance. Speakers will give a broad spectrum of opinions in the many ways digital media is addressing our most pressing issues.With:- Terence Moran, Professor of Media Ecology in the Department of Media, Culture, and Communication at New York University- Susan McGregor, Assistant Professor & Assistant Director, Tow Center for Digital Journalism- Jack Smith IV,  from Mic.

Formed in 1900, the Barnard College faculty operated its first half-century largely as a colony ruled by its male minority and subject to the all-male graduate faculties at Columbia. This remained true into the 1950s. Since then, Barnard’s faculty has been successfully liberated, achieving substantial institutional autonomy and gender parity within its ranks. In the course of doing so, it has adopted the research imperative prevailing at Columbia and other research universities. While this is mostly to good effect for an undergraduate institution with a tradition of teaching excellence, it’s not without its challenges. Those interested in the history of Barnard and its unique teaching model won’t want to miss this discussion with one of the College’s finest historians, Professor Robert McCaughey.

This documentary film explores the extent to which the perpetrators of the genocide in Bosnia (1992-1995) violently transformed the terrain. Natal villages were destroyed and over 1,000 Mosques and other cultural institutions were razed. In many cases, the Mosques were replaced with Serbian Orthodox Churches. Approximately 70,000 Bosnian Muslims (Bosniaks) were murdered. More than 500 mass graves containing the bodies of the victims have been discovered. Approximately one million Bosniaks were forced into exile. 50 min.Followed by a Q&A with David Pettigrew, filmmaker and professor of Philosophy and Holocaust and Genocide Studies at Southern Connecticut State University.

Lecture |
The Peru–Brazil border region harbors perhaps the world's largest remaining refuge for isolated indigenous peoples, sometimes referred to as "uncontacted tribes." Over the past few years, an increasing intensity of sightings, encounters and conflicts as well as sensational international media coverage has raised international awareness about their status, their unique vulnerabilities and the growing threats to their territories and ways of life. This presentation pieces together what little is known about the cultural history of isolated indigenous peoples in the Madre de Dios region of Peru, separates fact from fiction in popular media representations about them, analyzes their rapidly evolving interactions with outsiders, and weighs the complex opportunities and threats they face over the next decade.Speakers:Glenn H.

Rio de Janeiro is one of the most visible sites of “smart city” experimentation. In response to catastrophic natural disasters, calamitous traffic congestion, and urban health epidemics, the Centro de Operações Rio (COR) was designed as a corrective tool and as a new command and control hub that would allow the city to prepare for the 2016 Olympic Games. Launched in 2010, COR now monitors its urban camera network and information sensors, gauges optimal traffic patterns, determines landslide risk zones, predicts weather disruptions, and maps disease paths.The exhibition shows Rio structured through COR’s control syntax and smart city command processes. This syntax is assembled from seemingly banal “if-then” statements that become surprisingly charged by their encounters with the political and circulatory life of the city. Through COR, the exhibition sees traffic engineering as urban politics and as haunted by potential catastrophe. The exhibition also understands COR as indicative of an important new space of representation for the 21st century city and its emerging computational governmentality.

Lecture |
Irène Némirovsky (1903-1942) was a Russian Jewish immigrant to France who achieved a brilliant career as a novelist during the 1930s but was deported as a “foreign Jew” in 1942 and died in Auschwitz. Némirovsky’s tragic fate mirrors that of many assimilated Jews in Europe who had abandoned Jewish religious practice (sometimes to the point of conversion to Christianity), only to be treated like all other Jews by the Nazis. Némirovsky’s portrayals of Jewish characters in her fiction are controversial, for some readers consider them to be antisemitic. Lecturer Susan Rubin Suleiman, the author of a new book, The Némirovsky Question, argues instead that her Jewish characters exemplify the dilemmas and contradictions of Jewish existence in the 20th century, in Europe and beyond.
