Symposium | Reconsidering Jewish Migration to the United States: A Century of Controversy (online)


Reconsidering Jewish Migration to the United States: A Century of Controversy marks the 100th anniversary of the pivotal Johnson-Reed Immigration Act of 1924 by exploring a century of Jewish engagement with immigration at the national and international level. The symposium brings together nationally renowned scholars and experts to examine how the 1924 act restricted immigration from the interwar period to the 1960s, how Jews and other groups were affected, and how the liberalization of immigration law after the 1960s produced major demographic changes in the United States and set the stage for contemporary political controversies over the role of immigration in American life.

Discussion | Worlds at Waste: The Crisis of Water in the Subcontinent


The focus of this day-long workshop is to reflect on recent climate events that have caused massive displacement in southern Pakistan, southwest India, and Bangladesh. It aims to bring together scientists and social scientists to help look through the lens of historical pasts, politics, and embedded presents. Devastation and displacement from water caused by the climate crisis are and will remain a recurring, returning, and pervasive phenomenon in the global south. This approach intends to shift away from the focus on modeling catastrophic futures, the periodization of eras, and mapping the implications of climate change that prevail in current dialogues on climate change. Rather, the workshop guides towards a conversation that foregrounds human and environmental vulnerability in non-Western, transnational spaces with Indigenous and historical means of resilience. The intention is to continue this series with a focus on Air and Land in the following academic year. Speakers: Sunil Amrith, Renu and Anand Dhawan Professor of History at Yale University Amita Baviskar, Professor of Environmental Studies and Sociology and Anthropology at Ashoka University Karine Gagné, Associate Professor of Sociology and Anthropology at the University of Guelph Maira Hayat, Assistant Professor of Environment and Peace Studies at the University of Notre Dame Marvi Mazhar, architect and researcher Hung T.

Opening Reception | Gia Edzgveradze: The Charm of the Surface and the Grammar of the Abyss


This show is made up of an array of kaleidoscopic small-sized figurative paintings and larger, near-enigmatic black-and- white canvases. The smaller works utilize brilliant colors with which Edzgveradze endows his scenographies an otherworldly spirit that is nevertheless strikingly familiar. Cerulean-blue sportive grinning men and apple-green women in contorted figures go about their day, reading books on a toilet, balancing anonymous structures on their limbs, jovially dancing in a piano lounge, navigating serpentine corridors, or playing basketball.

Jazz | Encounters and Collisions: Music Inspired by Women's Migration Narratives


Sara Serpa presents her new work "Encounters and Collisions", a commission by Chamber Music America, drawing inspiration from women's migration narratives in the US and around the world, exploring themes such as traveling, assimilation, identity, motherhood, loneliness and language. This new work features Serpa's long-time collaborators Ingrid Laubrock, Erik Friedlander and Angelica Sanchez. Sara Serpa, a Lisbon, Portugal native, is a vocalist-composer and improviser who implements a unique instrumental approach to her vocal style. Recognized for her distinctive wordless singing, Serpa has been immersed in the field of jazz, improvised and experimental music since first arriving in New York in 2008. Described by The New York Times as "a singer of silvery poise and cosmopolitan outlook," and by JazzTimes magazine as "a master of wordless landscapes," Serpa started her career with jazz luminaries such as Grammy-nominated pianist Danilo Perez, and Guggenheim and MacArthur Fellow pianist Ran Blake.

Poetry Reading | New Poetry: Uterotopia / Date of Birth


Uterotopia by Rachel Galvin. With lyric intensity, wordplay, and dark humor, Uterotopia explores sexism and aging, fertility and mortality, the bystander effect, and violence against women on an intimate and national level. In poems that converse with writers including César Vallejo, Kim Hyesoon, and W.H. Auden, urban legends and folk rituals interweave with facts, anecdotes, and news items.   Date of Birth by Shawn R. Jones. The poems in this bracing debut do not shy away from incomprehensible tragedies: racism, poverty, abuse, and addiction, incest, and infidelities of the body and mind. Yet the world depicted by Shawn R. Jones has moments of humor and playfulness—for example, in a litany of indelible nicknames of the members of her childhood cohort in Atlantic City.

Concert | A One-Night-Only Performance by a Prolific and Masterful Pianist.


Critic John Garratt writes that pianist Matthew Shipp's album Codebreaker "is the sound of Shipp gliding on autopilot, letting his subconscious do the talking. That it sounds so musical and reflective is a testament to his command of the instrument, improvisational skills, and ability to tap into what lies beneath."

Concert | Soul-Warming Guitar-Driven Pop Folk


For over a decade, the Canadian singer-songwriter Joshua Hyslop has been crafting, recording and touring his unique brand of enigmatic, guitar-driven pop folk. Hyslop's insistent gossamer baritone vocals and intricate fingerpicking technique imbue his music with delicate melodic power. His latest LP, 2022's Westward, captures the veteran busker emerging from a series of personal trials with a melancholic but undaunted spirit, a state of mind perhaps all too relatable to anyone who fought through our pandemic years. These are hushed campfire songs of literal revival, drawing from bluegrass and gospel traditions, centered on earned optimism. Let Hyslop warm your soul with his message of beauty and relentless hope.
