Classical Music | Bach at Noon


The organ works of J.S. Bach (1685-1750) offered in 30-minute meditations. Johann Sebastian Bach was a German composer and musician of the Baroque period. He is known for instrumental compositions such as the Brandenburg Concertos and the Goldberg Variations as well as for vocal music such as the St. Matthew Passion and the Mass in B minor. Since the 19th-century Bach has been generally regarded as one of the greatest composers of all time. "The term 'baroque' has been widely used since the 19th century to describe the period in Western European art music from about 1600 to 1750... Many famous composers from the first part of the baroque period came from Italy and have a link with Venice, including Claudio Monteverdi and Antonio Vivaldi. Monteverdi was born in Cremona, but moved to Venice where he was 'maestro di capella' at the San Marco basilica. Vivaldi was born in Venice and was one of the greatest baroque composers. It is thanks to these strong musical traditions of Venice that we have today's music. Without Venetian church music and Monteverdi's advances with polyphony, the great traditions of choral music in England, France, and Germany would never have developed. Without the operas written by Monteverdi, Cavalli and Vivaldi, not only would the later styles of opera never have been invented. There would be no basis for the American Musical or the German and Viennese Operetta, the Spanish Zarzuela, and even rock, pop, and contemporary music as we know it." The Venice Insider Bach at Noon concerts take place every Tuesdays through Fridays, from September 10, 2019 to May 20, 2020.

Lecture | US-China-Japan Trilateral Relations and the East Asian Order


The trilateral relationship among China, Japan and the United States has generally been stable, and it explained the regional order in East Asia since the 1970s. The trilateral relationship has been stabilized primarily by the stability of the US-China and US-Japan relations, and secondly by the fact that American preponderance has been maintained and the commitment to Asia is certain, with the remaining two parties formulating strategies on the basis of that balance of power. Although Japan-China relations have been repeatedly confronted and approached politically over time, they have not shaken the trilateral relationship to that extent. Also, in the area of regionalism, the role of the United States has gradually become more important and contributed to the stability of order.

Book Signing | Nadav Kander: The Meeting


Regardless of his sitter―whether family member or influential celebrity―the portraiture of London-based photographer Nadav Kander (born 1961) shows what makes that particular individual human. His aim is to move beyond capturing an accurate likeness―to access the emotions within, the uncertainty, the shadow as much as the light, the complex sense of self that otherwise lays hidden. This collection, the first book dedicated to his portraiture, shows the range and nuance of Kander’s work. His enigmatic depictions of actors, artists, musicians, authors, sports icons and political leaders―from Barack Obama, John le Carré and Alexander McQueen to Tracey Emin, Robert Plant and Prince Charles―are layered and penetrating, revealing unexpected moments of reverie and vulnerability.

Author Reading | What's Your Pronoun?: Beyond He and She


While it may seem like adding preferred pronouns to email signatures and nametags at conferences is part of the zeitgeist, pioneering linguist Dennis Baron provides historical points of reference that shed light on a long tradition of coining gender pronouns. Shakespeare invoked the use of singular they and women adopted the generic use of he to assert their right to vote.  What’s Your Pronoun? examines the role pronouns have historically played in determining our rights and identities. From legislation to literature to the press, Baron shows the many areas of life where pronoun-expression matters and affects the way we treat different groups. Linguist Dennis Baron has written articles on language issues for The New York Times; The Washington Post; the Los Angeles Times; the Chicago Tribune; and other newspapers, on topics such as official English, American resistance to studying foreign languages, and grammar. He has been a columnist for The Chronicle of Higher Education and has written for Inside Higher Ed.
