Book Discussion | The Rulebreaker: The Life and Times of Barbara Walters (online)


Half a century later, it’s hard to recall the shock waves that Barbara Walters set off when she was named cohost of the Today show and then, two years later, the first female coanchor of a network evening news program when she took her seat next to Harry Reasoner on ABC Evening News. Or that she became the highest-paid news anchor of any gender, pioneered the BIG TV interview and, in her late 60s, created a new form of talk TV with The View. Bestselling author Susan Page reminds us how Walters thwarted the rules of misogynistic culture in her riveting new biography of the most successful female broadcaster of all time. Based on 150 interviews, Page traces the personal demons that fueled Walters’ rule-breaking ambitions, how she defied the belief that women couldn’t report “serious” news, outcompeted her most ferocious competitors and still guarded her complicated personal life from scrutiny. Journalist, political commentator and biographer, Susan Page is the Washington bureau chief USA Today and author of biographies on Barbara Bush and Nancy Pelosi.

Lecture | The Climate Crisis and Human Violence


Recently, social scientists have begun to look at the human-level impacts of the climate crisis. A key area of research that has emerged from this has looked at how rapid global warming and climate destabilization will impact the risk factors known to cause aggression and violent conflict. Andreas Miles-Novelo, adjunct assistant professor, looks at the intersecting research across disciplines, discussing the connection between environment, human behavior, and social systems and how the climate crisis increases the risk factors known to create violence and aggression. Such risk factors include resource scarcity, political instability, economic inequity, and higher perceptions of hostility towards "other" groups. These predicted increases are caused by both sporadic climate shocks that agitate current dynamics, as well as long-term developmental impacts resulting from deteriorating material conditions and increased resource scarcity. Discussion about centering possible solutions on available empirical and historical data will follow.

The exhibition traces the history of gypsy bands and famous musicians, from village bands to ensembles that have travelled abroad, and from the formation of large orchestras to the role of gypsy music as a bridge.

Book Discussion | Who Would Believe a Prisoner?: Indiana Women’s Carceral Institutions, 1848–1920


Authors Michelle Daniel Jones and Elizabeth Nelson on their work on archives, research, and the history of incarceration in America. What if prisoners were to write the history of their own prison? What might that tell them—and all of us—about the roots of the system that incarcerates so many millions of Americans? In this groundbreaking and revelatory volume, a group of incarcerated women at the Indiana Women’s Prison have assembled a chronicle of what was originally known as the Indiana Reformatory Institute for Women and Girls, founded in 1873 as the first totally separate prison for women in the United States. In an effort that has already made the national news, and which was awarded the Indiana History Outstanding Project for 2016 by the Indiana Historical Society, the Indiana Women’s Prison History Project worked under conditions of sometimes-extreme duress, excavating documents, navigating draconian limitations on what information incarcerated scholars could see or access, and grappling with the unprecedented challenges stemming from co-authors living on either side of the prison walls.

Book Discussion | Tears of History: The Rise of Political Antisemitism in the United States


Pierre Birnbaum's book starts from the premise that, for more than a century, the United States has seemed to be a safe haven for many Jews. There has been antisemitic prejudice, but nothing on the scale of the discrimination, persecution, pogroms, and genocide witnessed in Europe. White American ethnic violence has assailed many targets, but Jews have rarely been among them. Observing what he took to be an American exception, the influential historian Salo Baron challenged the "lachrymose conception" of Jewish history as an unending flow of oppressions, and many have followed him in seeing American Jews as sheltered from violence. But in recent years a spate of antisemitic attacks has cast doubt on this rosy view.

Discussion | What Makes It Italian?: Various MediaI (online)


"What Makes It Italian?" is a music listening and discussion group. The fifth encounter will focus on Various Media: Composer Giulia Recli (1890 – 1970) with sculptor Amedeo Modigliani (1884 – 1920) Here are music and sculpture that reflect distant cultures, but instrumentation and materials that do not. How can our understanding of italianità in music be informed by Italian sculpture? The insubstantial nature of musical materials – mere vibrations that move through the air, imperceptible to sight and touch – creates in us a longing for an analog made of solid material. In sculpture we have just such an analog: run your hand across the carved wood; feel the heat radiating from the bronze; watch the light play off the marble surface. Find the substance of Italian music by exploring its relationship to the substance/s of sculpture, one medium at a time.

Book Discussion | Fables of Development: Capitalism and Social Imaginaries in Spain (1950-1967)


Ana Fernández-Cebrián's book focuses on a basic paradox: why is it that the so-called "Spanish economic miracle" - a purportedly secular, rational, and technocratic process - was fictionally portrayed through providential narratives in which supernatural and extraordinary elements were often involved? In order to answer this question, this book examines cultural fictions and social life at the time when Spain turned from autarchy to the project of industrial and tourist development. Beyond the narratives about progress, modernity, and consumer satisfaction on a global and national level, the cultural archives of the period offer intellectual findings about the expectations of a social majority who lived in the precariousness and who did not have sufficient income to acquire the consumer goods that were advertised. Through the scrutiny of interdisciplinary archives (literary texts, cinema, newsreels, comics, and journalistic sources, among other cultural artifacts), each chapter offers an analysis of the social imaginaries about the circulation and distribution of capital and resources in the period from 1950, when General Franco's government began to integrate into international markets and institutions following its agreements with the United States, to 1967, when the implementation of the First Development Plan (1964-1967) was completed.

Jonathan Lyndon Chase (b. 1989, Philadelphia, PA) is an interdisciplinary artist who works in painting, video, sound, and sculpture to depict queer Black love and community. Rendered through layers of bright, visceral paint, make-up and glitter, Chase’s figures are suspended in various forms of articulation amidst the backdrop of urban and domestic spaces. These dynamic compositions blend emotional and physical, internal and external states of being to challenge and subvert canonical misrepresentations and exclusion of the Black body.

More than 100 million Americans have been born since 9/11. As this generation navigates a deeply divided world, sharing stories from the attacks that highlight bravery, service, compassion, and unity has never been more important.

Book Discussion | Virginia Senator Tim Kaine Discusses His Book Walk, Ride, Paddle: A Life Outside with New Jersey Senator Cory Booker (online)


Senator Tim Kaine and Senator Cory Booker in a conversation about Kaine’s new memoir. The compelling story of his expansive journeys through the Virginia wilderness, the book captures Kaine’s deep love for the natural world and his passion for preserving it, coupled with reflections on current events, from the January 6th attack on the Capitol to racial protests to the impeachment trials. Kaine talks with Booker about his treks, like biking along Virginia’s Blue Ridge on parkways built in the Great Depression to create jobs and open access for more people to enjoy. And he shares how those treks became a lens for considering pivotal challenges in our country and his optimism about the America he loves fiercely – from the inside and the out.

Book Discussion | MacArthur Reconsidered: General Douglas MacArthur as a Wartime Commander (online)


Author James Ellman digs deep, connects the dots, and concludes that General Douglas MacArthur was decidedly not a military genius. One of America's most controversial generals, Douglas MacArthur’s rise through the U.S. Army’s ranks was meteoric. However, he did not lead large formations of men in combat until he assumed command of forces in the Philippines in 1941. When war commenced with the bombing of Pearl Harbor, MacArthur’s performance on the battlefield was a failure: he underestimated the Japanese, and his poorly trained forces were outmaneuvered and outfought by a much smaller invading force. However, in what became a repeating hallmark of his career, he successfully portrayed his actions to much of the American people as brilliant and heroic regardless of victory or defeat. After fleeing to Australia, MacArthur famously announced, “I will return,” and followed through on a quest to retake Manila regardless of its impact on Allied global strategy or its cost in American, Australian, and Filipino blood. Today, MacArthur still polarizes. Many biographies agree he was a great and patriotic leader marred by a few failures. Ellman argues the opposite: MacArthur was a lackluster battlefield commander who suffered stunning defeats while undermining the command structure of our military.
