Lecture | Cape Verde and the Early Modern Black Atlantic (online)


Through Portuguese settlement in the fifteenth century, the Cape Verde islands became a launch base for trade between Europe and West Africa. By the sixteenth century, Cape Verde stood at the nexus of trade in enslaved Africans and goods between sub-Saharan Africa and the broader Atlantic world, including Portugal and Spain’s American colonies. In this talk, Abraham Liddell of Columbia University examines Cape Verde’s critical role in the development of an early Black Lusophone Atlantic through analyzing the social networks of the free and enslaved Africans that lived, worked, and were sold as captives there. Examining Black Atlantic history through a social network lens offers historians another way to consider how social connections affected the rational choices that free and enslaved Black people made about their lives.

Lecture | Boris Lurie: Searching For Truth in Holocaust Images (online)


In Claude Lanzmann’s seminal nine-and-a-half-hour film Shoah, he chose not to use any images of the Holocaust, telling the story instead solely through the words of witnesses. By contrast, art historian Georges Didi-Huberman and contemporary artist Gerhard Richter have both emphasized the power of images to reflect and educate—the former in his book Images in Spite of All: Four Photographs from Auschwitz, and the latter in a series of paintings titled Birkenau. This is a lecture exploring the tension between these different perspectives on images, words, and the Holocaust with German art historian and curator Eckhart Gillen. Gillen will ground the discussion in the example of Boris Lurie, who used art to access his buried memories before he was able to address them with words.

Author Reading | The Books of Jacob: Nobel Laureate Olga Tokarczuk's Masterpiece (online)


Originally published in Poland in 2014, The Books of Jacob is Tokarczuk's masterwork that first earned her the attention of the Swedish Academy, which hailed her "narrative imagination that with encyclopedic passion represents the crossing of boundaries as a form of life." The novel examines the legacy of Jacob Frank, a mid-eighteenth century Jewish mystic whose eventful life will crisscross Europe and its empires, straddle religions, and become enshrouded in controversy and mystery. Monumental in scope, The Books of Jacob is an ecstatic odyssey through a changing world in search of transcendence.
