Lecture | A Global History of Hungary: Concept, Implementation, Reflection


The recently released volumes of Magyarország globális története (A Global History of Hungary) are the joint product of 159 scholars from a host of disciplines. Together, they explore the history of an East Central European country in a truly global perspective for the first time. The two volumes cover developments from the formation of the Pannonian Plain and the early spread of human settlement and agriculture, through the emergence of world religions and the era of European colonialism and imperialism, all the way to key issues in the multipolar and contested globalization of our days. This narrative arc already suggests why such a global history of Hungary may be urgently needed today: to reinterpret in a substantial and nuanced manner, for our age of manifold interconnections, the place and various roles of Hungary and Hungarians in the history of the world. In this presentation, co-editor Ferenc Laczó will reflect on the agenda to embed Hungarian history comprehensively in global frameworks. He shall discuss the specific ways in which this agenda has been implemented, not least to explain how the contributing authors have taken up and adapted a recent Western European approach to historiography, what challenges this has entailed, and what opportunities such a process of adaptation to East Central Europe offers.

Book Discussion | Run Like Hell: A Therapist's Guide to Recognizing, Escaping, and Healing from Trauma Bonds


Author Nadine Macaluso discuss her latest book. At age twenty-two, Nadine married Jordan Belfort, the nefarious stockbroker portrayed in the Hollywood blockbuster The Wolf of Wall Street. Their marriage began as a fairy tale, but once they were bonded, Jordan's "mask" began to slip, and acts of infidelity, narcissistic abuse, insatiable greed, and uncontrollable drug addiction became Nadine's nightmare. The horrific relationship gave Nadine the inspiration to become a psychotherapist specializing in narcissistic abuse, trauma bonds, and complex PTSD. Her private practice quickly flooded with women recounting an all-too-familiar story of abuse with a pathological partner. Perhaps this scenario resonates with you.

Book Discussion | Transparency: The Material History of an Idea


Transparency is a mantra of our day. It is key to the Western understanding of a liberal society. We expect transparency from, for instance, political institutions, corporations, and the media. But how did it become such a powerful—and global—idea? From ancient glass to Apple’s corporate headquarters, this new book is the first to probe how Western people have experienced, conceptualized, and evaluated transparency. Daniel Jütte argues that the experience of transparency has been inextricably linked to one element of the Western built environment: architectural glass. His book explores the role that glass has played in shaping how we see and interpret the world. A seemingly “pure” material, glass has been endowed, throughout history, with political, social, and cultural meaning, in manifold and sometimes conflicting ways. At the same time, Jütte raises questions about the future of vitreous transparency—its costs in terms of visual privacy but also its ecological price tag in an age of accelerating climate change. Daniel Jütte is Professor of History in the Department of History at New York University.

Discussion | Greek Mythology and Contemporary Literature: A Four Session Course


Participants who register must attend ALL FOUR sessions (April 8, 15, 22, and 29) FIRST SESSION (April 8): A brief discussion of the creation of the universe, the birth of the Titans and Olympians, introduction to Athena, Orpheus and Eurydice, Circe, and Pyrrhus. REQUIRED READING before the session: Edith Hamilton, MYTHOLOGY: Timeless Tales of Gods and Heroes. The old mythological stories of classical Greece have long influenced Western literature. These stories and their characters, techniques, and ambience have continuously attracted and inspired artists and writers of the entire modern era, roughly the 500 years following 1500. In recent poetry and prose fiction, inspiration comes no less from Greek mythology than ever before. This course will identify some of the key myths from ancient Greece, myths that produced influential figures and lessons--early literature and early science--and we'll discuss some of these themes as manifested in poetry and prose in English since the late 1990s. It would be hard to find a modern poet whose work is uninformed by the ancient Greeks, and many works of literary prose are directly tied to the myths, if only by way of subverting them, feminizing them, queering them, perverting them, anything but worshiping them, since we have learned over these past 500 years to stop short of worship--choosing instead to put our faith in an anxiety of influence, bold misreadings, and making the classics our own. We no longer worship, we play--like the wild, dangerous, heroic, godly figures that populate the mythology of ancient Greek culture. It is no doubt valuable to study the various tellings of Greek mythology in a straightforward, studious way, to ingest its gods and goddesses, its heroes, its schlumps, its glories and failures, ecstasies and miseries, so that we can better understand the works of our time that refer to them so prolifically. That is an education that can take a lifetime. We'll have just a few hours together to talk and try to grasp this enormous subject. By holding up the myths to the transforming lens of the contemporary, we might be able to glimpse aspects of old Greek stories that might otherwise have gone over -- or under, or around -- our heads. Registration is required, and class size is limited. Participants will be expected to have read the material BEFORE coming to the relevant session.

Lecture | Liberty After Liberalism: Emancipatory Struggles in Ukrainian Journalism, 2001-2021


The post-Cold War moment saw global experiments in liberating the world through capitalist markets and liberal democracy. How have they shaped understandings of freedom in the former Soviet ‘empire of justice’? Taras Fedirko addresses this question by focusing on Ukrainian journalists’ struggles against the power of oligarchs and other media patrons between 1998-2021. Fedirko traces how Russian interference, patronal domination, and organisational imperatives of grants promoting freedom of speech, have transformed what had begun as a solidarity movement against media censorship, into a divisive, moralised struggle over who counts as ‘real’ journalist in Ukraine. He argues that we can best understand this transformation if we pay attention to the centrality of the idea of freedom as non-domination to Ukrainian journalists’ struggles. In tension with liberal understandings of free speech, this idea of freedom and the emancipatory project it informed reveals journalistic labour as the key site where relations of political domination and exclusion were forged and challenged in pre-invasion Ukraine.

Screening | Merce Cunningham: The Events at Dia Beacon: documentary


In the theatrical premiere of Merce Cunningham: The Events at Dia Beacon, the Jerome Robbins Dance Division screens this 40-minute film drawing on footage from the Merce Cunningham Dance Company's unique, site-specific "events" at the Dia Beacon Art Museum in 2008 to 2009. The evening will also include screening of materials from the Merce Cunningham Archive, part of the collections of the Jerome Robbins Dance Division and a panel discussion moderated by Producer Nancy Dalva with Jennifer Goggans, Daniel Madoff, Rashaun Mitchell, and Silas Riener. The film, edited by award winning film director/editor Daniel Madoff, a former Cunningham dancer himself, creates an entirely new cinematic event, with linkages revealing the choreographer's idiosyncratic methodology, and acute sensitivity to environment. Cunningham arranged these multi-stage performances after careful site visits, taking into account the space, the artworks, the natural light, and the specific properties of each gallery, or as he called it, "situation." Of the Richard Serra "Torqued Ellipses," he said, "It was like dancing next to the pyramids." The music, commissioned for each space, was live. Producer Nancy Dalva (whose Mondays with Merce crew captured the live events) will host a conversation after the film with Jennifer Goggans, Daniel Madoff and choreographer/dancers Rashaun Mitchell and Silas Riener, who all appear in the film. Registration required.

Book Discussion | A Revolutionary Friendship: Washington, Jefferson, and the American Republic (online)


Martha Washington's worst memory was the death of her husband. Her second worst was Thomas Jefferson's awkward visit to pay his respects subsequently. Indeed, by the time George Washington had died in 1799, the two founders were estranged. But that estrangement has obscured the fact that for most of their thirty-year acquaintance they enjoyed a productive relationship. Author Francis D. Cogliano considers the significance of one of the most important but understudied personal relationships of the founding era: the connection between George Washington and Thomas Jefferson that spanned three turbulent decades.

Talk | Arthur Szyk and the Art of the Haggadah


Arthur Szyk’s Haggadah was not only the most expensive new book in the world upon publication in 1940, but the Times of London deemed it “worthy of being considered among the most beautiful of books ever produced by the hand of man.” Its editor, Cecil Roth declared “To call Arthur Szyk the greatest illuminator since the 16th century is no flattery. It is the simple truth that manifests itself to anyone who studies his work with the care which it deserves.” This study will also demonstrate how Szyk saw Hitler as the new Pharaoh and the Nazis as the new Egyptians who had come to annihilate his people, using an ancient text to deliver a modern message about persecution and freedom. Executed between 1934-1936, Szyk’s visual commentary called for heroism and emigration of Europe’s Jews to Palestine.
