Lecture | Jumping the Line: Family Self-welfare and the Waning of Communism (in-person and online)


This talk discusses the moralities of consumption in late communism to understand how practices of “jumping the line,” which people understood as a form of family-centered self-care clashed with official norms of social justice and the communist welfare state. In the Soviet Union and the Soviet Bloc, conflicts over provisioning and equal access to consumer goods increasingly moved from an ideological crusade against private trade to everyday confrontations between consumers, shop assistants and the state. Waiting lines became depoliticized, but not for long. During the world economic crisis of the 1970s, which gravely affected Eastern Bloc, family-centered resourcefulness became  the key norm of distributive justice. In the case of  communist Poland, Mazurek argues, internalized norms of self-welfare contributed to dismantling of the socialist welfare-state and set the stage for post-communist transformation well before 1989/1990. Speaker Małgorzata Mazurek is an associate professor of Polish Studies at Columbia University.

Discussion | 2024 Global Elections and Climate and Energy Policy


What do the 2024 elections mean for the energy transition and climate action? This year more voters will take to the polls globally than in any other year in the past. The results could have consequential implications for future global climate and energy policy. Voters head for national elections in 64 countries, representing roughly half of the world’s population. Outcomes in the United States, U.K., India, Indonesia, Mexico, Pakistan, and the European Union, could influence the direction of global climate talks in the years to come, while outcomes for opposition voices under the circumstances of upcoming elections in Iran, Russia, and Venezuela might also hold clues for future energy geopolitics.

Talk | 21 Praises to Tara: Exploring the Facets of the Buddha Nature (online)


The "Praise to Tara with Twenty-One Verses of Homage" is a tantric text popular in the Indo-Tibetan tradition of Buddhism. Many lay and monastic practitioners know this text by heart and recite it as a prayer for protection and success; however, it also has deeper dimensions associated with all the levels of the Buddhist path. In this introductory session with Buddhist translator Michael Lobsang Tenpa, look at the interplay between the "Twenty-One Praises" and Buddha-nature theory, especially as interpreted by the Kagyu and Nyingma traditions. In this approach, every verse can be said to describe different facets of our deepest nature, and each repetition of the praise can bring us closer to manifesting the associated qualities in our daily life. We will go through each verse, discussing their literal meaning; meditate on Green Tara; and discuss different ways to chant the praise.

Book Discussion | Queer World Making: Contemporary Middle Eastern Diasporic Art


Premodern archives from the Middle East show rich and diverse homoerotic worlds that were disrupted by the colonial imposition of Western models of sexuality. Andrew Gayed traces how contemporary Arab and Middle Eastern diasporic artists have remembered and reinvented these historical ways of being in their work in order to imagine a different present. Building on global art histories and transnational queer theory, Queer World Making illuminates contemporary understandings of queer sexuality in the Middle Eastern diaspora.

Book Discussion | Tears of History: The Rise of Political Antisemitism in the United States (in-person and online)


Author Pierre Birnbaum is outlining American exceptionalism, a society where no Jews were killed until the Leo Frank affair at the beginning of the 20th century. He looks at the various factors of this exceptionalism and shows that since the 1930s - and especially the 1950s, a new kind of political antisemitism has been rising, related to the growing power of the white supremacists militants looking at the State as "being occupied by the Jews." For the first time, many Jews were killed during the attack on the Pittsburgh Tree of Life synagogue in 2018. We can therefore say that American exceptionalism is strongly declining nowadays, and since October 7th 2023, a new wave of antisemitism is threatening the Jews, extending the tears of history to the American society.

Concert | Environmental Sound Artist Performs with Jazz Musician


Mary Edwards is a composer and sound artist whose interdisciplinary practice encompasses themes of temporality, impermanence, nostalgia and the natural world that recur throughout her work. Everywhere We Are is the Farthest Place is her "ode rather than an elegy" to the transforming Arctic landscape, climate vulnerability, elemental sensuality and terrestrial connectivity that also draws partly on sound as a vibrational phenomenon and Space Analogues. Edwards began this project while sailing on an artist and scientist research expedition above the 78th Parallel to Svalbard (halfway between Norway and the North Pole) to make field recordings and listen to the rhythm and breath of our planet from another pulse point. She documented sound properties of glacial geology and oceanographic data sonification--distinct groans and reverberant calving ice tumbling from the sublime glacier walls into the depths of fjords, the movement of subterranean rivers, Beluga whale song and vocal intonations--intended to provide sonic access for all by "de-centralizing the centered and un-othering the others." Mary Edwards (keyboards, Waterphone, electronics) will install and perform the piece with Michael Eaton (saxophone, flute, electronics,) a Brooklyn-based composer, and educator active in contemporary jazz and free improvisation.

Screening | Persisting Matters: Short Films on Artists


A screening and discussion around five short documentaries that showcase the variety of approaches that contemporary artists embrace in order to address pressing questions related to identity, social issues, history, and the active role of art in public discourse. The first documentary presents the exhibition on Italian artist Corrado Cagli (1910-1976), curated by Cooper Union Professor of Art History Raffaele Bedarida, which served as the background for a project with contemporary artists Leslie Hewitt, Kambui Olujimi, Sheila Pepe, Juan Sanchez, and Bea Scaccia; it was developed with a grant from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. The following four shorts features interviews with each of the artists recorded in their respective studios over the course of Fall 2023 about their practice and various questions related to art, society, and community. Each screening will be accompanied by conversation among the artists and art historians Raffaele Bedarida and Dr. Ksenia M. Soboleva.

Discussion | Technological Inhumanities and Imaginaries


Asians and Asian-ness have long circulated in literature, cinema, and pop culture as figures of science fiction threat and fantasy—what Michelle N. Huang has identified as the “inhuman figures” of robots, clones, and aliens. Beyond these techno-orientalist stereotypes and tropes, however, lies the shadow of social and economic forces that have materialized the injustice of such racialized logics, as well as artistic investigations that play with critical transformations of its coded imaginary.   This panel will put into conversation three scholars—Huan He, Jennifer Pranolo, and Whit Pow—whose research and teaching on the history, practice, and aesthetics of computational media extends the critique of representation that would spectacularly equate Asians/Asian-ness with a technological inhumanity. In distinct but reciprocal ways, their work complicates the blank interfaces of technology while asking how those technologies have been used to mediate modes and strategies of escape—through alternate narratives, archives, and forms—from seemingly inescapable regimes of representation.

Discussion | The Future of the (Progressive) University


Discussions on the future and fate of higher education are more important than ever. Amid the controversies, we see attacks on academic freedom, concerns about rising costs, the end of affirmative action programs, questions about fair treatment of contingent faculty, and the undermining of scientific inquiry. Progressive institutions appear particularly at risk, buffeted by political attacks and self-doubts about privilege and responsibility. This is a conversation on this timely topic with Nancy Cantor, Chancellor of Rutgers University – Newark and incoming President of Hunter University, and Andrew Delbanco, Alexander Hamilton Professor of American Studies at Columbia University, moderated by Donna E. Shalala, Interim President of The New School.

Book Discussion | Language City: The Fight to Preserve Endangered Mother Tongues in New York


A unique look at the linguistic diversity of New York City as explored in Ross Perlin's new book. Perlin will share his race against time to map little-known languages across New York and will present a portrait of contemporary New York illustrated through six speakers of little-known and overlooked languages deep in their communities, from the streets of Brooklyn and Queens to villages on the other side of the world. He explores the languages themselves, from rare sounds to sentence-long words to bits of grammar that encode entirely different worldviews. On the 100th anniversary of a notorious anti-immigration law that closed America’s doors for decades and the 400th anniversary of New York’s colonial founding, Perlin raises the alarm about growing political threats and the onslaught of “killer languages” like English and Spanish.

Book Discussion | The Expulsion of the Triumphant Beast: A New Translation


Published in London in 1584, The Expulsion of the Triumphant Beast is Giordano Bruno’s first work of moral philosophy. It is dedicated with a long Explicatory Letter to Elizabeth I’s most cultured courtier, Sir Philip Sidney. It is a book about moral reform, expelling the beasts of evil, and putting virtues in their place. Its theme is presented as an allegorical drama in which ancient myths assume modern meanings questioning the ways in which moral and religious reform have been conceived in both the ancient world and the cultures of Renaissance Europe. This new Italian text, based on the original printed text of 1584 held in the British Library, presents a less modernized version than those presently available, while maintaining a modern page format. The aim is to provide a text closer to the sound of Bruno’s original mix of classical Tuscan Italian and Neapolitan dialectical forms. This edition also presents a new translation designed to render Bruno’s complex and baroque Italian into easily readable modern English. Hilary Gatti introduces The Expulsion of the Triumphant Beast, underlining Bruno’s meta-literary reflection on the nature of allegory and myth as well as the dramatic structure of his text. Drama, philosophy, and religion combine in this work to give an epic dimension to the perennial cosmic battle between evil and good.

Book Discussion | With Freedom in Our Ears: Histories of Jewish Anarchism (online)


Jewish anarchism has long been marginalized in histories of anarchist thought and action. Co-editors Anna Elena Torres (University of Chicago) and Kenyon Zimmer (University of Texas, Arlington) will be joined by contributor Samuel Brody (University of Kansas) and Jorell Meléndez-Badillo (University of Wisconsin, Madison) to discuss this work, recovering many aspects of this erased tradition. With Freedom in Our Ears brings together more than a dozen scholars and translators to write the first collaborative history of international, multilingual, and transdisciplinary Jewish anarchism. Contributors bring to light the presence and persistence of Jewish anarchism throughout histories of radical labor, women’s studies, political theory, multilingual literature, and ethnic studies. These essays reveal an ongoing engagement with non-Jewish radical cultures, including the translation practices of the Jewish anarchist press. Jewish anarchists drew from a matrix of secular, cultural, and religious influences, inventing new anarchist forms that ranged from mystical individualism to militantly atheist revolutionary cells.

Talk | From Cholera to Clean Water: Daily Life in 19th-Century New York (online)


Dr. Gwynneth C. Malin discusses how our health today depends on a complex water supply and sewerage system built over 150 years ago and we often take clean drinking water and indoor plumbing for granted. Although wealthy New Yorkers installed indoor flush toilets starting in the 1860s, the working-class and poor residents of New York’s tenements buildings relied on chamber pots and outdoor toilets, in some cases into the 20th century. Women living in the tenements carried heavy tubs of water for household use up multiple flights of stairs daily. In the mid 19th-century, city officials in New York began to take responsibility for water and sewers by building, operating, and maintaining new infrastructure as a public undertaking and then gradually replacing the private companies which had been providing these services previously. This talk will center visual sources, to show some objects of daily life in the tenements and to honor the inestimable contribution of the contract laborers, everyday citizens, engineers, politicians and sewer tourists, who made New York’s public water and sewer system happen.

Lecture | "The Protocols of the Elders of Zion" in Court: The Bern Trial (1933-1935) and the "Antisemitic International" (in-person and online)


Between 1933 and 1935, a trial was held in Bern against members of the Swiss extreme right-wing National Front who had distributed "The Protocols of the Elders of Zion," a widely disseminated antisemitic publication that spread lies about Jews. The real target of the Jewish organizations that initiated the trial, however, was the pamphlet itself, its origin, its dissemination, and its use in Europe's fascist movements. During the course of the trial, both sides received ample support in the form of material assistance and propaganda. The defendants and their supporters in Nazi Germany were able to rely on an extensive network that had been established in the early 1920s to combat "Judaeo-Bolshevism." This conspiratorial "Antisemitic International" united German v?lkisch circles, Italian fascists, Russian monarchists, and French conspiracy theorists. On the other side, the plaintiffs actively sought to expose the "Protocols" as a forgery in the hope that this would counteract their impact. In this lecture, Michael Hagemeister will use the Bern trial as a case study of Jewish legal self-defense in order to shed light on both the "Protocols of the Elders of Zion" and the concerted efforts against the "Antisemitic International" in the 1930s, which have received little attention from historians.
