Symposium |
The Cold War was fought on many fronts, with dance as a powerful weapon in its arsenal. The ballet wars of the 1950s and 1960s, including high-profile defections, captured international headlines, but numerous forms of dance from folk dance and modern dance to rock and roll were drawn into an ideological struggle that pitted capitalist freedom again communist oppression.  Dancing the Cold War, a three-day international symposium, brings together scholars, artists, critics, and others to explore the multiple dance encounters that took place during the Cold War between the Soviet Union and the United States as well as the allies, clients, and surrogates of those countries in different parts of the world.  It will consider the impact of touring and the mass media in challenging ideological certainties and the changes that transformed the Russian dance community in the immediate post-Soviet period.

Lecture |
“Carlos the Jackal” is perhaps the most notorious terrorist of the Cold War. Born as Ilich Ramírez Sánchez in Venezuela, before turning thirty, the self-proclaimed Marxist revolutionary-cum-hired gun established one of the most feared terrorist groups of the time. During the 1970s and 1980s, Carlos and his associates attacked British, French, Israeli, Saudi, Iranian as well as Arab targets and, by 1982, the Venezuelan topped President Francois Mitterrand’s assassination list. Having set up a basis in Hungary and spent almost a decade visiting and transporting weapons through the territory of Soviet-allied countries, Carlos is often seen as the exemplar of Eastern Bloc support for international terrorism. However, as newly-released Eastern European secret service documents show, by the early 1980s, The Jackal had become a liability and a reputation hazard for Moscow’s satellites. Fearful of the increasingly maverick Carlos and his Group, these states set up a web of intelligence alliances aimed at pushing terrorists out of their territory. This article analyses the Eastern Bloc’s changing attitude towards the enfant terrible of Cold War terrorism as well as the nature of this emerging ‘anti-terrorist’ coalition. By doing so, it aims to revise the literature on intelligence liaison and anti-terrorism alliances, thus far distorted by an over-concentration on experiences of the West. Speaker Daniela Richterová researches intelligence alliances between state and non-state actors during the Cold War. She earned her graduate degree in War Studies at King’s College London.

Lecture |
"Since 2011 events in the Middle East have left social theorists wondering how to study the apparent antinomy between the rise of Islam in politics and aspirations to participatory democracy. I will focus on the history of Islamic reformist thought from its defensive posture before colonialism to its evolution in the global era towards forms of cosmopolitanism questioning national and cultural identity while asserting a Muslim ethos. I analyze modalities of this evolution as well as the reactions is has triggered among Islamic scholars, Islamists, and lay scholars in Algeria, Egypt and Iran. Is this trend best studied as ushering in a new modernity or does it require a rethinking of the premises of sociological theory?" Lecturer Marnia Lazreg is professor of sociology at Hunter College of the City University of New York. She is the recipient of a number of fellowships at the Bunting Institute (Harvard University); the Pembroke Center for Research and Teaching on Women (Brown University); the Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio Center (Italy); and the Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton.

Rosen’s formally intuitive process is enabled by a complex understanding of historical conventions, composite materials, and chemical properties, placing her work in the tradition of experimental ceramicists including Peter Voulkos, Betty Woodman, Linda Benglis, and Martin Puryear.

Lecture |
In recent decades, the production of fine art has become increasingly highly capitalized. Large scale, luxury materials, and outsourced fabrication have all been used to create distinction in a highly competitive market. In this talk, based on his book Art in the Making (co-authored with Julia Bryan-Wilson) Glenn Adamson will critique the politics of contemporary art production and offer some thoughts on the history and possible future of art making. Glenn Adamson is currently Senior Scholar at the Yale Center for British Art. A curator and theorist who works across the fields of design, craft and contemporary art, he was until March 2016 the Director of the Museum of Arts and Design, New York. He has previously been Head of Research at the V&A, and Curator at the Chipstone Foundation in Milwaukee.

The University of Virginia Experimental Music Composers with Woody Sullender will present a concert based on the theme of object-based music and instrumentalization. The performance not only takes inspiration from Argo Electronics but will involve actual objects and “junks” found there. The components of the performance will include electroacoustic improvisation (Peter Bussigel, Travis Thatcher, and Kevin Davis), an audio-visual installation (Ryan Maguire) and an interactive performance that turns the venue itself into a shifting, resonant presence (Woody Sullender, pictured). Together, all of these works challenge the distinction between performance, sound, and music through drawing unexpected properties out of the discarded, the forgotten, and the everyday.

The Ba Duan Jin (“eight pieces of brocade”) is a Taoist medical qigong set of eight therapeutic practices that dates back over 1,000 years. Over the centuries, many have experienced its numerous health benefits, and it is one of the most famous of all qigong forms. There are several variations of each exercise that combine gentle movements with breath coordination, and they can be easily modified for people of varying fitness levels. In addition to increasing strength and flexibility and improving posture, this set can provide benefits to the respiratory, circulatory, nervous, digestive and lymphatic systems. The practices are relatively simple to learn, and one begins to feel their subtle, yet profound benefits after only a few weeks of practice. You will feel energized, yet calm and balanced after each of the sessions. Note: Wear comfortable clothing that does not restrict movement and flat-soled shoes. With: William J. Kaplanidis

In her trenchant analysis of U.S. history, literary critic and Black feminist scholar Hortense Spillers considers the aftermath of the notion of partus sequitur ventrem—the “American ‘innovation’ that proclaimed that children born of an enslaved mother would also be enslaved.” In this lecture, Spillers engages the idea of the “shadow” family to explain one of the tectonic shifts in the concept and practice of social relations in the New World from the 18th century—a period of profound contradiction and change when dangerously hegemonic definitions of race, gender, and family took hold—onward.

Viola and Sebastian, twins separated by a shipwreck, experience loss and love on the shore of Illyria. Disguised as Cesario, page to the lovesick Duke Orsino, Viola searches for her lost brother, while the Countess Olivia mourns the loss of her own. When the Countess meets the handsome young page, desire replaces grief – along with a case of mistaken identity. Throw in the magic foolery of the jester, Feste, the raucous antics of courtiers Sir Toby, Maria, and Sir Andrew, and the madness of the high-strung puritan Malvolio, and Shakespeare creates a bitter-sweet tale of laughter and longing, dark humor, and above all, maddening, harrowing love.

Jazz vocalist and rising star Natalie Dietz has made an indelible impression on the Australian jazz scene in such a short time, impressing both audiences and critics alike with her trademark warm, sensual tone and varied vocal abilities. Accepted into the elite jazz vocal program at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music in 2009, Natalie honed her performing skills under the tutelage of Australian jazz luminaries like Judy Bailey and Mike Nock. She studied voice with jazz vocalists Kerrie Biddell and Kristin Berardi, as well as composition with jazz pianist Matt McMahon. Prior to this, she received tuition from the Australian Opera title role soprano, Anke Hoeppner, cementing an important foundation in classical voice.
