Conference |


The election of Donald J. Trump as President of the U.S. and the UK’s decision to exit the EU has thrown the Atlantic world into crisis. The consequences of an Anglo-American retreat from constructive international engagement will be felt globally, but perhaps nowhere more so than the Western Balkans. Politically and historically wedged between the competing geopolitical, economic, and cultural influences of the U.S., Western Europe, Russia, and Turkey, the countries of the former Yugoslavia are particularly susceptible to international flux. These panels are convened at a time of urgency in international and regional affairs. But we do so with an eye not merely on the potential crises but also the too often under-reported success stories: Macedonia’s civil society-led government change, Montenegro’s accession to NATO, the contested but nevertheless important legacies of war crimes prosecution and transitional justice, the progress on LGBT and minority rights legislation, and the still ongoing process of Euro-Atlantic integration, newly energized within the context of the so-called Berlin Process.

Rudy Shepherd uses painting, drawing and sculpture to explore the nature of evil. This involves investigating the lives of criminals and the victims of crime. He explores the complexity of the resulting stories - the grey areas between innocence and guilt - by making no visual distinctions between the criminals and the victims. He is also working on Black Rock Negative Energy Absorbers - a group of sculptures meant to remove negative energy from people; a series of ceramic sculptures called the Healing Devices; and a new series of paintings of Holy Mountains.

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.

Greenwich Village is among Manhattan's most desirable and expensive residential neighborhoods. It's history, however, betrays it's monied status. The Village, with it's quiet, shaded streets, lined with lovely brick and brownstone townhouses, was once the incubating ground of artistic, social and political movements that have helped shape US history. From the Beats to the Folk Movement, from workers rights to gay rights, the Village has often been the center of it all.

Slide Lecture |


In A Room of One’s Own, Virginia Woolf famously claimed that women needed a room to themselves to become writers. Far less well known are Woolf’s many attempts to build and rebuild such a room for herself in the Sussex home she shared with Leonard Woolf. Virginia Woolf had a lifelong interest in architecture, both as a practice and as a source of inspiration for her writing.  She never sought to create “modern architecture” in a programmatic sense; rather, Woolf’s aesthetic, mirrored in her writing, was a steady arc of modernization. This talk, illustrated by Woolf’s own plans and sketches, will explore the significance of her forays into architecture for understanding her novels and more broadly, for thinking about modernism as an interarts aesthetic. Speaker: Victoria Rosner, Columbia University

Belle-Skinner will present a program of original music on guitar and vocals, including folk- and jazz-inspired tunes classified as “nostalgic indie-folk.” With a hauntingly beautiful, lilting soprano and innate sense of melody she crafts tales of songbirds, sirens and desert nomads – nuanced and layered stories which bridge the gap between past and present. Though her influences cover a broad range of genres – from French chansons and Russian folk to contemporary alt-pop and rock – her voice often draws comparisons to the likes of Joan Baez, Jeff Buckley, and Angel Olsen.

Dr. Mark Epstein reveals how Buddhism and Western psychotherapy, two traditions that developed in entirely different times and places and, until recently, had nothing to do with each other, both identify the ego as the limiting factor in our well-being, and both come to the same conclusion: When we give the ego free reign, we suffer; but when it learns to let go, we are free.
