Book Club | Toni Morrison's God Help The Child


In the center of the story is a young woman who calls herself Bride, whose stunning blue-black skin is only one element of her beauty, her boldness and confidence, her success in life, but which caused her light-skinned mother to deny her even the simplest forms of love. There is Booker, the man Bride loves, and loses to anger. Rain, the mysterious white child with whom she crosses paths. And finally, Bride's mother herself, Sweetness, who takes a lifetime to come to understand that "what you do to children matters. And they might never forget." Toni Morrison is an American novelist, essayist, editor, teacher, and professor emeritus at Princeton University. She won the Pulitzer Prize and the American Book Award in 1988 for Beloved. The novel was adapted into a film of the same name (starring Oprah Winfrey and Danny Glover) in 1998. She was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1993.  Please read the book before arriving at the book discussion.

Opening Reception | Journeys with the Initiated: A German Novelist in New York


Between 1978 and 1980, queer German novelist, poet, and self-taught ethnographer Hubert Fichte traveled to New York to engage with a city that he perceived to be a center of Afro-diasporic culture and tradition. From the early 1970s and into the following decade, alongside his partner Leonore Mau, Fichte made several journeys to research the daily lives and religious practices of Afro-diasporic communities in Benin, Senegal, Brazil, Chile, Portugal, and the US among other places. During this period Fichte attempted to create a new ethnology that would run counter to an academic and colonial model. This effort coalesced in Fichte’s development of a diaristic form of ethnographic writing that accounted for his own subjectivity and embeddedness within a given context. Fichte’s novel The Black City features several sprawling long-form texts and interviews related to his encounters with artists, scholars, activists, spiritualists, everyday citizens, and queer communities in New York. Taking Fichte’s text as a starting point, Journeys with the Initiated unfolds along two registers. The first is a reading room featuring selected texts, photographs, and other documents that contextualize Fichte’s sojourn in New York and highlight his writing, as well as the work of other key thinkers that ground his perspective on ethnography and writing. The second component of the exhibition includes a selection of existing and newly commissioned works across video, sculpture, performance.

Lecture | From Commune to Capitalism: How China's Peasants Lost Collective Farming and Gained Urban Poverty


In the early 1980s, China undertook a massive reform that dismantled its socialist rural collectives and divided the land among millions of small peasant families. Known as the decollectivization campaign, it is one of the most significant reforms in China’s transition to a market economy. This mainstream history argues that the rural communes, suffering from inefficiency, greatly improved agricultural productivity under the decollectivization reform. It also describes how the peasants, due to their dissatisfaction with the rural regime, spontaneously organized and collectively dismantled the collective system. A closer examination suggests a much different and more nuanced story. Zhun Xu of Howard University argues that the decollectivization campaign was neither a bottom-up, spontaneous peasant movement, nor necessarily efficiency-improving. Decollectivization, by depoliticizing the peasantry and freeing rural labor to compete with the urban workers, served as both the political and economic basis for consequent Chinese neoliberal reforms and a massive increase in all forms of economic, political, and social inequality.

Author Reading | Built with Faith: Italian American Imagination and Catholic Material Culture in New York City


Over the course of 130 years, Italian American Catholics in New York City have developed a varied repertoire of devotional art and architecture to create community-based sacred spaces in their homes and neighborhoods. These spaces exist outside of but in relationship to the consecrated halls of local parishes and are sites of worship in conventionally secular locations. Such ethnic building traditions and urban ethnic landscapes have long been neglected by all but a few scholars. Joseph Sciorra’s book offers a place-centric, ethnographic study of the religious material culture of New York City’s Italian American Catholics.

Author Reading | Not from Here, Not from There: The Autobiography of Nelson A. Diaz


In his inspiring autobiography, Diaz tells the story of his struggles and triumphs as his perspective widened from the New York streets and law school classrooms to the halls of power in Philadelphia and Washington, DC. Whether as a leader in economic development, a pioneer in court reform, or a champion of fair housing, Diaz has never stopped advocating for others. Diaz was happy to be the first Latino to “do something,” but he never wanted to be the last. This story of an outsider who worked his way to the inside offers powerful lessons on finding a place in the world by creating spaces where everyone is welcome.

Lecture | Iraqibacker: Ecologies of War and Anthropology of Wounding


Iraq's healthcare has been on the edge of collapse since the 1990s. Once the leading hub of scientific and medical training in the Middle East, Iraq's infrastructure has been undermined by decades of U.S.-led wars, sanctions and invasions. This has been further accentuated by the dearth of empirical knowledge about Iraq in the social sciences, which has often rendered Iraq as ungovernable in swath of scholarship. Building on ongoing ethnographic research on wounds and wounding, Omar Dewachi of Rutgers University explores some of the long-term consequences of Iraq’s healthcare dismemberment.

Author Reading | Shame: A more authentic sense of self


Feelings of embarrassment, guilt, self-consciousness, and remorse are a part of life. Rather than push them aside, psychotherapist and writer Joseph Burgo suggests we can learn from our shame by using it to explore our goals, values, and vision for our ideal selves. Absent this kind of reflection, shame may hide behind mental disorders such as social anxiety, narcissism, addiction, and masochism. In Shame, Burgo challenges widely-held views and positive psychology regarding self-esteem, using examples from his 35 years of clinical practice. Burgo will be joined in conversation by Lisa Gornick, novelist and graduate of the doctoral program in clinical psychology at Yale and the psychoanalytic training program at Columbia, where she is on the voluntary faculty.

Author Reading | A Writer of Our Time: The Life and Work of John Berger


John Berger was one of the most influential thinkers and writers of postwar Europe. As a novelist, he won the Booker prize in 1972, donating half his prize money to the Black Panthers. As a TV presenter, he changed the way we looked at art with Ways of Seeing. As a storyteller and political activist, he defended the rights and dignity of workers, migrants, and the oppressed around the world. “Far from dragging politics into art,” he wrote in 1953, “art has dragged me into politics.” He remained a revolutionary up to his death in January 2017. Drawing on first-hand, unpublished interviews and archival sources only recently made available, Joshua Sperling digs beneath the moments of controversy to reveal a figure of remarkable complexity and resilience. The portrait that emerges is of a cultural innovator as celebrated as he was often misunderstood, and a writer increasingly driven as much by what he loved as by what he opposed. A Writer of Our Time brings the many faces of John Berger together, repatriating one of our great minds to the intellectual dramas of his and our time.
