Forum | Nationalism and Populism Around the World: Is Japan an Exception?


Nationalism and populism have been on the rise around the world, with the two trends often coinciding and reinforcing one another. Japan seems to be an exception to this trend: while nationalism seem to be on the rise, Japan has not experienced a rise of populism as we see in other Western countries. Is this observation correct? If so, why is Japan different? Or, is a rise of populism likely in Japan in the coming years? This event will bring together experts from different disciplines as well as leading scholars from Japan. With: Masayuki Tadokoro, Professor of International Relations, Keio University, Tokyo, Japan Satoshi Machidori, Professor of Law, Kyoto University's Graduate School of Law Harukata Takenaka, Professor of political science, National Graduate Institute for Policy Studies in Tokyo Mark Lilla, Professor of Humanities, Department of History Alexander Stille, San Paolo Professor of International Journalism Moderated by: Takako Hikotani, Gerald L.

Unique in its breadth and profoundly humanitarian in its focus, Surviving the Peace situates digestible explanations of the region's bewilderingly complex recent history among interviews, conversations, and tableaus from the lives of everyday Bosnians attempting to make sense of what passes for normal in a postwar society.

Lecture | Xi Jinping's Long-Term Strategic Vision and its Implication for the American Position in the World


Since the modern times, the world has undergone three waves of globalization. The first wave started from 500 years ago, with the European countries connecting the world by means of the opening of new sea-routes, the great discoveries of geography and the establishment of global colonial system. This is a linear globalization based on power. The second wave started at the end of WWII. The establishment of a series of US-led international institutions linked the world into a systematic international society. This is a flat globalization based on institutions. Nowadays, the third wave of globalization is under way. The rise of emerging newly-economies from the developing world and the effect of economic globalization have brought about a trend of re-balance for the world economic pattern. This will be a tridimensional globalization based on governance. Facing the advent of this trend, the Chinese government has proposed the "Belt and Road Initiative", in order to propel the network construction of both worldwide partnerships and regional integration, with the purpose of promoting the realization of global governance.

Book Club | The Last Collection: A novel of Elsa Schiaparelli & Coco Chanel 


An American woman becomes entangled in the intense rivalry between iconic fashion designers Coco Chanel and Elsa Schiaparelli in this captivating novel from the acclaimed author of The Beautiful American. Paris, 1938. Coco Chanel and Elsa Schiaparelli are fighting for recognition as the most successful and influential fashion designer in France, and their rivalry is already legendary. They oppose each other at every turn, in both their politics and their designs: Chanel’s are classic, elegant, and practical; Schiaparelli’s bold, experimental, and surreal. When Lily Sutter, a recently widowed young American teacher, visits her brother, Charlie, in Paris, he insists on buying her a couture dress—a Chanel. Lily, however, prefers a Schiaparelli. Charlie’s beautiful and socially prominent girlfriend soon begins wearing Schiaparelli’s designs as well, and much of Paris follows in her footsteps. Schiaparelli offers budding artist Lily a job at her store, and Lily finds herself increasingly involved with Schiaparelli and Chanel’s personal war. Their fierce competition reaches new and dangerous heights as the Nazis and the looming threat of World War II bear down on Paris.

Discussion | "Creation Is Everything You Do": Ntozake Shange, The Sisterhood, and Black Collectivity


In the 1970s, Black women writers began gathering in Brooklyn and Manhattan, forming themselves into a group who came to be informally known as The Sisterhood. Uplifting each others' lives and honing their craft, they were central to an explosion of 1970s and 1980s literature that included for colored girls who have considered a suicide when the rainbow is enuf. Today, the photo of these literary legends enjoying each other's style and presence is iconic. Invited writers Patricia Spears Jones, Kimberly Springer, Mecca Jamiliah Sullivan, and Courtney Thorsson have a discussion of Shange's place in this and other collectives. Where does literary organizing fit into histories of Black feminist activism? What lessons can these earlier groups offer young women today about organizing and cultivating artistic communities? And how can they claim space for radical voices?

Lecture | Philosophy and Anarchy: Anatomy of a Disavowal


Speaker Catherine Malabou writes: "The issue of anarchy is at once metaphysical and political. Nevertheless, (French) philosophy and politics have always turned their backs on each other when defining it. One of the fundamental motivations of my lectures is to understand the reason of such a non-dialogue. Different, sometimes contradictory, signs are making manifest the necessity of a new interrogation on anarchy in the current global political situation, far beyond the idea of a violent strategy against the State. How are we to understand and interpret those signs?"
