Lecture | Dalit History is Poster History (online)


Shrujana N. Shridhar, a Mumbai-based artist and illustrator, and Christina Dhanuja, the co-founder of Dalit History Month, lead a presentation on the literary and political movements led by the Dalit Panthers. This conversation will delve into the Dalit Panther Archive’s digitized treasures—posters, magazines, and revolutionary poetry—and their transformative impact on Marathi literature. The Dalit Panthers and the Little Magazine movement challenged the entrenched norms of Marathi literary circles in the 1970s, by bravely confronting dominant caste perspectives that had long dictated the aesthetics, linguistics, and thematic directions of prose and poetry. They explored the radical reimagining of expression by dismantling oppressive gazes and ushering in an era of authentic voices and diverse narratives. This presentation will uncover the struggles and triumphs of visionary leaders, and the communities that enabled them to navigate India’s changing political and cultural landscape, leaving an indelible mark on the trajectory of anti-caste literature and creative expression. It offers a journey through time and ideology, with insights into the power of literature that challenges, provokes, and inspires change. It presents an opportunity to celebrate the legacy of those who dared to disrupt literary fiefdoms.

Discussion | Is This Me?: Films by Maryam Tafakory


A Q+A with filmmaker Maryam Tafakory to discuss her films Mast-del, Irani Bag, Nazarbazi, and Chaste/UnChaste.  Through collages of original and found footage, Tafakory's films reflect on identity and the censorship of intimacy and sexuality in post-Revolution Iran. Mast-del explores queer identity inside and outside of post-Revolution Iran through altered visuals, new and archival. Irani Bag is a video essay, focusing on the restriction of physical intimacy and demonstrating to its viewers "how to touch without touching." Nazarbazi tells a story of desire, control, and love in Iran through a collage of found footage. Chaste/UnChaste examines the limitations of labeling women's bodies as chaste/unchaste through depiction of Iranian women in film.

Lecture | Impact of Discrimination on Integration of Emigrants from an Aggressor Country: Evidence from a Panel Survey of Russian Migrants (in-person and online)


Following the full-scale invasion of Ukraine in 2022, up to one million Russians fled their homeland, marking the most significant brain drain since the Soviet Union’s collapse. While some host countries view the highly educated and politically active migrants as an asset, integrating nationals of the aggressor state has presented challenges. Many migrants face institutional restrictions aimed at sanctioning Russia, alongside varied experiences of discrimination from local populations. This study delves into the effect of discrimination on the assimilation intentions of Russian migrants, focusing on language learning as a key indicator. Laitin’s model of identity building suggests that migrants’ willingness to assimilate depends on the perceived benefits, including acceptance by the host society. Following the model, Sergeeva assumes that discrimination signals to migrants that the host country’s society does not accept them, making learning the local language a less rational choice. Utilizing a cross-sectional panel survey, the study establishes a link between discrimination and integration, differentiating between the effects of discrimination experienced from local citizens and local institutions on language acquisition. Findings reveal that societal discrimination significantly dampens migrants’ willingness to learn local languages and diminishes their trust in and attachment to host societies, unlike institutional discrimination, which shows no such effect on language learning. These insights contribute to an understanding of the impact of nationality-based discrimination, highlighting the role of societal acceptance in the successful integration of political migrants. Speaker Ivetta Sergeeva is a PhD candidate at the European University Institute in Florence.

Film | Desperately Seeking Susan (1985) with Rosanna Arquette and Madonna


New Jersey housewife Roberta Glass spices up her boring life by reading personal ads, especially a series of them being placed by a mysterious denizen of New York City named Susan. When one of Susan's ads proposes a rendezvous with her suitor at Battery Park, Roberta secretly tags along. But when her voyeuristic plan ends in permanent memory loss and a new jacket, Roberta begins to gather a lot of unwanted attention from some unsavory characters. Director: Susan Seidelman Cast: Rosanna Arquette, Aidan Quinn, Madonna, Robert Joy Rosanna Arquette is an American actress who was nominated for an Emmy Award for her performance in the TV film The Executioner's Song (1982) and won the BAFTA Award for Best Actress in a Supporting Role for the film Desperately Seeking Susan (1985).

Her works, which incorporate social, political, sexual, and religious themes, have generated both controversy and critical acclaim. A prominent cultural figure of the 20th and 21st centuries, Madonna remains one of the most "well-documented figures of the modern age."

Book Discussion | The Caravaggio Syndrome: A Fusion of Historical, Queer, and Speculative Fiction (in-person and online)


In Alessandro Giardino's novel, Leyla is a headstrong Brooklyn-born art historian at a prestigious upstate New York college. When she meets feckless young computer technician Pablo at a party, she quickly becomes pregnant with his child. There's only one problem: she can't stand him. And one more problem: her student Michael wants Pablo for himself. Amid this love triangle, the objects of Leyla and Michael's study take on a life of their own. Trying to learn more about Caravaggio's masterpiece "The Seven Works of Mercy," they pore over the journal and prison writings of maverick 17th-century utopian philosopher Tommaso Campanella, which, as if by enchantment, transport them back four centuries to Naples. And while the past and present miraculously converge, Leyla, Michael, and Tommaso embark on a voyage of self-discovery in search of a new life. In this fusion of historical, queer, and speculative fiction, Alessandro Giardino combines the intellectual playfulness of Umberto Eco with the psychological finesse of Michael Cunningham. Alessandro Giardino is Chair & Associate Professor of Italian and Francophone Literature at Saint Lawrence University. Born in Naples, he studied at the University of Bologna, UC Berkeley, and McGill University. He has written extensively about Caravaggio's cultural circles, as well as Italian and French literature.

Concert | Juilliard Performers Highlight Climate Change


Performers from the Juilliard Green Club are thrilled to take the stage to present a multi-genre, immersive experience. They ask the audience to consider our collective futures, including differences of background, class, and geographical location, in the face of climate change. Artists have always looked either to the past or forward to an unknown future, often attempting to predict what awaits all of us with the knowledge that they have in their times. This need to consider our place and agency within the larger context we live in is one artists always struggle with; but today, it is something we all struggle with, as the choices necessary to guarantee a safe future are not in our hands. They will consider art that seeks out the past, present, and future of our Earth and its life so we can answer: how have artists considered their futures in the past, and what can we learn from them?
