Lecture | Family Heirlooms: Reframing Yugoslavia Through Personal Histories (online)


The legacy of socialist Yugoslavia remains heavily contested in contemporary Kosovo, no less because the communist takeover is seen as yet another historical injustice to the Albanians who were left outside the borders of Albania proper. Having been raised in a family with close-knit ties to the partisan struggle during the Second World War, Lura Limani approaches this historical period from a personal perspective— that of her own grandmother.  In a recent and hotly-debated essay published by Kosovo 2.0, Limani ventures into her grandmother’s memories of the Second World War and post-war Yugoslavia in an effort to tease out what the socialist period meant to her and her generation. Limani, who interviewed her late grandmother Myrvete Hoxha Limani, a teacher, a party activist and the sister of Kosovo’s partisan commander Fadil Hoxha, before she passed away, will talk about the struggle of mapping the social and cultural history of Kosovo Albanians in Yugoslavia and the tensions between what is remembered in private and what can be publicly commemorated.

Discussion | Fire: Construction History in New York and Chicago (online)


This discussion will examine the various dimensions in which the threat of fire affected skyscraper development. Claims of "fireproof building" were regularly disproved, often in cataclysmic fashion. Iron promised improvements over timber, but Chicago's Great Fire in 1871 revealed its vulnerability to collapse. Brick remained the only truly fireproof material, but owners and designers remained frustrated by its weight and inefficiency. The advent of lightweight terra cotta allowed architects to combine ceramic's resistance to fire with iron's efficient strength, leading to hybrid structures that allowed the safe exploitation of the skeletal frame. Fire also reshaped building codes, but new regulations reflected the competing desires of owners, tenants, architects, and skilled tradespersons that, in turn, influenced skyscraper massing and composition. Differing approaches in New York and Chicago forged subtly different solutions.

Author Reading | Red Sea-Red Square-Red Thread: A Philosophical Detective Story (online)


Lydia Goehr's book is a work of passages taken, written, painted, and sung. It offers a genealogy of liberty through a micrology of wit. It follows the long history of a short anecdote. Commissioned to depict the biblical passage through the Red Sea, a painter covered over a surface with red paint, explaining thereafter that the Israelites had already crossed over and that the Egyptians were drowned. Clearly, not all you see is all you get. Who was the painter and who the first teller of the tale? Designed as a philosophical detective story, Red Sea-Red Square-Red Thread follows the extraordinary number of thinkers and artists who have used the Red Sea anecdote to make so much more than a merely anecdotal point. Leading the large cast are the philosophers, Arthur Danto and S?ren Kierkegaard, the poet and playwright, Henri Murger, the opera composer, Giacomo Puccini, and the painter and print-maker, William Hogarth. Strange companions perhaps, until their use of the anecdote is shown as working its extraordinary passage through so many cosmopolitan cities of art and capital. What about the anecdote brings Danto's philosophy of art into conversation with Kierkegaard's stages on life's way, with Murger and Puccini's la vie de boheme, and with Hogarth's modern moral pictures?

Lecture | Mapping the Colonial Continuum (online)


What can a trained architect bring to the study of colonial history? What would the concept of space-time, if taken seriously, bring to our study of and struggle against colonialism? By way of spatial analysis, Léopold Lambert examines 74 years of occupation of Palestine as well as the various movements of liberation that challenged French colonialism — in particular the 1954-62 Algerian Revolution, the 1984-88 Kanak insurrection, and the 2005 banlieues uprising — in order to reflect on what constitutes the colonial continuum as a surface of space-time, and how to represent it in maps and diagrams.

Author Reading | Lessons in Chemistry: Chemist Turns Cooking Show Host


In Bonnie Garmus's novel, chemist Elizabeth Zott is not your average woman. In fact, Elizabeth Zott would be the first to point out that there is no such thing as an average woman. But it’s the early 1960s and her all-male team at Hastings Research Institute takes a very unscientific view of equality. Except for one: Calvin Evans; the lonely, brilliant, Nobel–prize nominated grudge-holder who falls in love with—of all things—her mind. True chemistry results.    But like science, life is unpredictable. Which is why a few years later Elizabeth Zott finds herself not only a single mother, but the reluctant star of America’s most beloved cooking show Supper at Six. Elizabeth’s unusual approach to cooking (“combine one tablespoon acetic acid with a pinch of sodium chloride”) proves revolutionary. But as her following grows, not everyone is happy. Because as it turns out, Elizabeth Zott isn’t just teaching women to cook. She’s daring them to change the status quo.
