Symposium |
"A real failure does not need an excuse. It is an end in itself." - Gertrude Stein We are all familiar with the many bromides teaching us the value of failure on the path to success. It builds character, shows perseverance and dedication, demonstrates willingness to take a risk, and so forth. All perhaps true, but all constrained by a view of failure as a means to an end, an unfortunately necessary obstacle to be overcome. One may learn from failures, but what is mostly meant is that one learns not to do that particular thing again. Failing is fine, especially on someone else's dime, if you gain some experience to avoid future failures. There is an alternative view of failure. What about failure as a good? What about the intrinsic value of failure? How about failure that contains valuable data, not just an error message? Failure that is a critical part of the process, not a means to an end? Failure that stands shoulder to shoulder with success? Can there be such a thing as positive failure? Can failure make progress? Can we use failure to improve creativity, education, or behavior? How do we research failure? How do we discover important failures? How do we recognize important failures? This symposium will investigate these and other perspectives on failure across disciplines, searching for commonalities and differences. scienceandsociety@columbia.edu

Conference |
In considering the politics and policies of commemorating the past, this conference probes how public discourses about memory change over time. Papers that explore how the past is known, interpreted, conceptualized, or articulated, and how such representations evolve with the passage of time, are welcome. How has the passage of time changed the way memories of historical violence, atrocity and genocide are represented in the public sphere? In what ways do political, social and cultural forces influence, appropriate, or stifle these memories in different ways as the original event recedes into the more distant past? Related topics include the globalization of memory, and with it the increasing popularity of commemorative memorial practices. The proliferation of museums and memorials, the increase in confessional or memorial literature, and the surge of memory laws against Holocaust and genocide denial are some examples of the historical, cultural and legal phenomena that speak to questions of how individuals and communities remember.

New York City is a mecca for graffiti and street art, making it a very attractive playground for artists from around the world. Bushwick, in a working class district on the north side of Brooklyn adjacent to Williamsburg, has been attracting artists for some time now. The neighborhood has a fair collection of art studios and galleries, but it’s Bushwick’s industrial landscape that’s attracting the street artist. If you came looking for 1960′s Greenwich Village, you’ll find something brewing in Bushwick.

The second installment of The Strange Career of the Jim Crow - Midwest reveals the many faces of white racism. The face of employment discrimination was unmasked by the March on Washington movement in Detroit’s auto plants in the 1940s. The face of killer cops was revealed by Fred Hampton and the Black Panthers as well as by Cha Cha Jimenez and the Young Lords in Chicago. The face of religious discrimination was exposed by Reverend Albert Cleage and Black Christian Nationalism in Detroit. The face of cultural imperialism was exposed by the Black Arts Renaissance from Detroit to Chicago. And the faces of housing and employment discrimination were protested by the NAACP in Milwaukee. Join this conversation on Jim Crow in the Midwest with panelists Nishani Frazier, Keona Ervin, and Patrick Jones.

Lecture |
One of America’s most important composers, Julia Wolfe has often mined the past as inspiration for her contemporary music. Oral tradition, memory and oral history are central to two of her best-known works: Steel Hammer (2009), which has as its source more than 200 variations of the quintessential American folk ballad, the legendary “John Henry.” And the text for Anthracite Fields (2014), her choral oratorio about life and death in Pennsylvania coal country, was, in Wolfe’s words, “culled from oral histories and interviews, local rhymes, a coal advertisement, geological descriptions, a mining accident index, contemporary daily everyday activities that make use of coal power, and an impassioned political speech by John L. Lewis, the head of the United Mine Workers Union.” Julia Wolfe discusses her multiple roles as composer, researcher and interviewer, and how her compositions, rooted in the past and focusing on workers, labor, and industrialization, have gained new relevance and audiences, in coal country, throughout the U.S. and beyond.

The events causing the end of the Hittite empire at the end of the Late Bronze Age in the eastern Mediterranean are still unknown, but while its causes have been widely discussed, little to no attention has been devoted to the lack of memory of it, as well as the lack of a clear attempt by later polities to claim the legacy of the Great Kings of Hatti. Lorenzo d'Alfonso's talk will focus on the perceptions of the fall of the empire, and the non-uniform trajectories of its aftermath.

Entitled "Thirteen Months in America," Smith's talk probes the dilemmas of his curatorial process as he prepared the exhibition Americans, opening at the Smithsonian's National Museum of the American Indian in early 2018. The exhibition highlights the ways in which American Indians have been part of the nation's identity since before the country began. In his lecture, Smith discusses how events since the election of November 2016 have challenged and reshaped many of his long held views about, as he say, "well, everything."

When people think about holiday decorations in New York City, they usually think of the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree and the lavish store window displays. But some of the best sights to be seen are actually in Dyker Heights, Brooklyn. Starting in the 1980’s, Christmas started getting bigger and brighter out in Brooklyn with each passing year. Expect to see massive, professionally- done light displays (some costing upwards of $20,000!). There is an unspoken competition among the home owners in the neighborhood, so some have added huge lawn ornaments and motorized displays, making for a lavish holiday spectacle. Dyker Heights has truly become a “must-see” for many people during the holidays.

The Seagull is one of the great plays about writing. It superbly captures the struggle for new forms, the frustrations and fulfillment of putting words on a page and on a stage. It is a play about love, theater and disappointment. Chekhov, in his first major play, stages a vital argument about the theatre that still resonates today.

After a young girl is lost in a cave in rural North Carolina, there is an investigation into her disappearance and the fate of those who survive her. This eerie trio of interwoven ghost stories morphs into a multi-layered musing on grief, loss, guilt, and karma, and the elusive truth behind the missing girl's life and death – revealed one piece at a time. Written by Naomi Iizuka.
