Lecture | War on Mobile Phones: Technology and Truth in the Age of Digital Witnessing


User-generated content, particularly mobile phone footage from conflict zones, has challenged journalists’ monopoly on the storytelling of war, raising questions about disinformation and fake news. It is, in particular, the truth status of user-generated content and mobile videos that monopolizes public and scholarly debates on conflict reporting: is the image real? who is it attributed to? what is the context in which it is taken in? what interests might it serve? Even though these are important and urgent concerns, the lecture challenges this dominant agenda by asking what is the cost of an exclusive focus on truth? Speaker Lilie Chouliaraki is Professor of Media and Communications at the London School of Economics and Political Science.

Concert | Winter's Eve: Doo-Wop, Barbershop, School Songs, and More


The Columbia College King's Men were founded in 1948 by request of Dwight Eisenhower, then University President, for that year's Homecoming ceremony. Three years later, at a football game in 1951, Eisenhower told the group, "If you men can get 2,000 others singing with that spirit, I'll personally pin a medal on each one of you." Since then, the Kingsmen have taken that same spirit to the national stage to become one of the most famous a cappella groups in the United States. The Kingsmen have appeared in such venues as Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center, and on television in The Ed Sullivan Show, The Steve Allen Program, Two for the Money, and most recently, Good Morning America. Today, the Kingsmen spirit that Eisenhower praised in the '50s remains a strong part of their musical culture: their sound is deeply rooted in doo-wop and the like, but the full scope of their repertoire includes barbershop, contemporary arrangements, school songs, and witty songs of their own composition. Start times: 6:00pm, 7:00pm Followed at 8pm by Broadway Buskers

Talk | Ethical Dilemmas in Aging: "If I'd Only Known"


Why choose the title "If I'd Only Known" for this talk? This was an easy choice for featured speaker Liz Singer. In the 10 years that she has been practicing as a geriatric care manager and coordinator, it is the phrase she hears most often. Planning for what is needed as one ages and as one faces the end of life -- whether for oneself or for a loved one -- can be overwhelming. There are so many decisions to make! Decisions in the areas of financial, legal, medical, personal, social, emotional...the list goes on and on. And these ethical decisions are fraught with ethical dilemmas.

Lecture | Emotional Narratives / Tragedy / The Religious Wars


A talk by Charles-Louis Morand Métivier about his work on the play called La tragédie du sac de Cabrières. In this play, Professor Morand Métivier examines how tragedies based on historical massacres of Protestants (the destruction of Waldensian villages in the Lubéron, and the Saint Bartholomew’s Day Massacre) produce emotional creations and recreations of the event, warping their historical significance in narratives destined at "becoming" history.

Lecture | Medieval Medicine and Literature: A Galenic Presence in Dante's Writing


The attention to the relation between medieval medicine and Dante’s writing shows how contemporary scientific thought manifests itself both in evident and less explicit terms, which allude not to exclusively scientific concepts, but to structures of thought shared by other contemporary intellectual discussions, such as philosophy, ethics, political thought. This lecture investigates how the manifest incidence of strictly medical – and more precisely Galenic – notions, such as complexio or the hegemonic principle which rules the human being – permits the investigation of a more oblique presence, where medicine contributes to the formation of complex and multifaceted content.

Screening | Mind the Wall!: Animated Shorts About 1989


Come and take a peek through the wall. To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Iron Curtain that physically and ideologically divided Europe, see a hand-picked selection of top-shelf auteur animated short films. Made in the time of or about the collapse of the Iron Curtain and the Berlin Wall in Central-Eastern Europe, these carefully curated animated shorts are wildly imaginative, signaling the coming downfall of Communism by depicting political and social anomalies with a surprising degree of openness and wit.   The films will be introduced by Eszter Polonyi, Visiting Assistant Professor in the History of Art and Design of the Pratt Institute.
