Book Discussion | Rethinking the Gulag: Identities, Sources, Legacies (online)


Editors Alan Barenberg and Emily Johnson will be joined by contributors Gavin Slade (Nazarbayev University), Mikhail Nakonechnyi (University of Helsinki), and Sarah Young (University College London), discussant Dan Healey (University of Oxford), and moderator Mark Lipovetsky (Columbia University). The Soviet Gulag was one of the largest, most complex, and deadliest systems of incarceration in the 20th century. What lessons can we learn from its network of labor camps and prisons and exile settlements, which stretched across vast geographic expanses, included varied institutions, and brought together inmates from all the Soviet Union’s ethnicities, professions, and social classes? Drawing on a massive body of documentary evidence, this book explores the Soviet penal system from various disciplinary perspectives. Divided into three sections, the collection first considers “identities”—the lived experiences of contingents of detainees who have rarely figured in Gulag histories to date, such as common criminals and clerics. The second section surveys “sources” to explore the ways new research methods can revolutionize our understanding of the system. The third section studies “legacies” to reveal the aftermath of the Gulag, including the folk beliefs and traditions it has inspired and the museums built to memorialize it. While all the chapters respond to one another, each section also concludes with a reaction by a leading researcher: geographer Judith Pallot, historian Lynne Viola, and cultural historian and literary scholar Alexander Etkind.

Lecture | What Do We Owe to Each Other?: Some Historical Reflections on Civic Obligations, Dissent and Compliance After the Pandemic


Across the world, the Covid pandemic has triggered fierce debates about mandates, restrictions, and surveillance. While there has been a dramatic increase in state intervention on private lives and individual liberties, we've also observed mass compliance to very strict and demanding measures. Many of the debates that have divided political communities over the last two years have shown how challenging it is to strike a balance between rights and duties in modern societies. French historian Nicolas Delalande will offer a historical reflection on the legitimacy and sources of our civic obligations, shedding light on how state power, collective duties and individual rights have grown together over the last two centuries. In his talk, Delalande will also explore how our inherited conceptions of citizenship, deeply rooted in 20th century history, are put to the test as we face the challenges of climate change, global inequality, and global security. Delalande is a Professor of European History at Sciences Po, currently Alliance Visiting Professor at Columbia University's History Department. His research and publications focus on the history of social inequality, political economy, and state power.

Dance Performance | Dance Film Turns an Absurd Eye on Family Life (online through May 9)


Omar Román De Jesús’s new dance film turns an absurdist lens on moments of a family’s life while examining the global forces that impact their everyday decisions. Ten short scenes reveal the strange happenings of their surreal environment, where threads of memory ricochet and recombine to tell a hyperbolic life story: a dream diary flung open. The new work is paired with De Jesús’s 12-minute film, "Los Perros del Barrio Colosal." A wild romp through the challenges of creative decision-making, the characters ask us to consider the far side of the moments when our ideas threaten, with disjointed urgency, to swallow us whole.

Book Discussion | Reclaiming Your Community: You Don’t Have to Move Out of Your Neighborhood to Live in a Better One (in-person and online)


How can we solve the problem of persistent poverty in low-status communities? Majora Carter argues that these areas need a talent-retention strategy, just like the ones companies have. Retaining homegrown talent is a critical part of creating a strong local economy that can resist gentrification. But too many people born in low-status communities measure their success by how far away from them they can get.

Book Discussion | You Have Not Yet Been Defeated: A Political Prisoner's Writings


Mark the publication of world-renowned Egyptian political prisoner and activist Alaa Abd El-Fattah's powerful ideas of protest and freedom with readings and discussions from prominent writers and thinkers. Alaa Abd el-Fattah is arguably the most high-profile political prisoner in Egypt, if not the Arab world, rising to international prominence during the revolution of 2011. A fiercely independent thinker who fuses politics and technology in powerful prose, an activist whose ideas represent a global generation which has only known struggle against a failing system, a public intellectual with the rare courage to offer personal, painful honesty, Alaa's written voice came to symbolize much of what was fresh, inspiring and revolutionary about the uprisings that have defined the last decade. Collected here for the first time in English are a selection of his essays, social media posts and interviews from 2011 until the present. He has spent the majority of those years in prison, where many of these pieces were written.

Discussion | The Internet Archive at 25 (in-person and online)


The founder of the Internet Archive speaks with the president of The New York Public Library about the changing roles of libraries in the digital age. In 1996 a young computer scientist named Brewster Kahle dreamed of building a “Library of Everything” for the digital age. A library containing all the published works of humankind, free to the public, built to last the ages. He created the Internet Archive and its mission: to provide everyone with universal access to all knowledge. “The goal of the Internet Archive,” Kahle has written, “is to create a permanent memory for the Web that can be leveraged to make a new Global Mind.” In the intervening years, libraries have evolved, expanded, and adapted to thrive in the digital age. Where do these two stories intersect? And how have our understandings about the meaning and value of archives, libraries, and access have undergone seismic shifts in the past 25 years.
