Lecture | Soviet Industrialization and Ukrainian Literature of the 1920s (online)


The Russian invasion of Ukraine in 2022 has confirmed not only the centrality of energy to the war, but also the importance of Ukraine to global energy policy, with its far-reaching economic, environmental, and cultural consequences. This will explore the concept of energy as a shaping force in Ukrainian cultural and political history; the aesthetics of particular energy sources (fossil fuels, nuclear energy, renewables) in Ukrainian literature, film, and other media; the Russia-Ukraine energy nexus; Ukrainian energy markets; and environmental effects of energy production, consumption, and catastrophe. In several Ukrainian regions industrial revolution started in the second half of the 19th century, both within the Russian Empire (Donbass) and the Austro-Hungarian Empire (Galicia). With the establishment of Soviet power in most of the territory of modern Ukraine, a steady course towards the socialist industrialization of the country began, which unfolded in full swing by the end of the 1920s. The construction of a new socialist society involved modernization of all spheres of public life, including literature and art. Professor Galina Babak’s presentation will address the issue of how the process of Soviet modernization and industrialization (electrification, coal, and oil industries) was represented in literature of that time.

Lecture | Georgia: Once a Beacon of Democracy, Now on the Edge of Authoritarianism


A lecture by Marine Kapanadze on the human rights situation in Georgia and Georgia’s role in the region. Moderated by Julie George. Georgia was always a leading state across Post-Soviet countries in building democracy. However, currently, Georgia is at a crossroads: will it become a fully authoritarian state or make acute steps towards re-establishing democratic institutions? The government does everything possible to restrict civic activism in the country and lead it to full autocracy. A recent attempt to adopt the so-called Foreign Agents Law is an obvious sign of it. Human Rights Advocate Marine Kapandze will discuss the current developments in Georgia. She will particularly focus on the human rights situation and the challenges with regard to the rule of law as the most critical issues on the way to the European and Euro-Atlantic integration of Georgia.   Marine Kapanadze is a human rights lawyer currently serving as the Civil and Political Rights Program Director at the Georgian Democracy Initiative, a local non-governmental organization in Georgia.

Dance Performance | Dance on Film: One & One Other: a bizarre play between reality and absurdist fantasy (online thru Apr 24)


In a bizarre play between reality and absurdist fantasy, One & One Other is a dance film offering a window into the secret world that exists on the fringes of our late-night consciousness. At the heart of the film is the mind's ability to transport us away from the mundane, habitual rhythm of life into the incongruous realm of our imagination; a place that oscillates between the fantastic and the harrowing. One & One Other is Shawn Fitzgerald Ahern and Emilie Leriche's fifth collaboration together, driven by a shared ambition to push the boundaries of film and dance and uncover how the two media might meet, intersect, and disrupt each other.

Discussion | Compulsory (Il)literacies: Intersecting Race, Information Redlining, and Limitations on the Right to Read


The current rise in book censorship activity has now eclipsed that which occurred during the McCarthy era. The contemporary campaign to ban books has particularly focused on literature written by and about BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ authors and histories. It is in the continuum of what Tracie D. Hall, tenth executive director of the American Library Association, describes as a long and troubling history of ‘information redlining’ meaning “the systematic denial of equitable access to credible and reliable information sources, information infrastructure, and information services and retrieval methods.”

Book Discussion | The Loft Generation: From the de Koonings to Twombly


Jacob Burckhardt, son of the author, filmmaker, and photographer, and one of the editors will discuss the book, a bristling and brilliant memoir of the mid-20th-century New York School of painters and their times by the renowned artist and critic Edith Schloss, who, from the early years, was a member of the group that shifted the center of the art world from Paris to New York. It is an invaluable account by an artist at the center of a landmark era in American art. Schloss writes about the painters, poets, and musicians who were part of the postwar movements and about her life as an artist in New York and later in Italy, where she continued to paint and write until her death in 2011. Jacob Burckhardt, son of the author, filmmaker, and photographer, and one of the editors will discuss the book.
