Talk | Justice Beyond Right (online)


This talk will explore and interrogate conceptions of justice that do not center on rights. Building upon oral histories and narratives of refugees and migrants from the tribal areas of Pakistan, the talk will work through the resources that Islamic thought might provide to address challenges faced by critical theory in moving beyond Eurocentric conceptions of justice. Elaborating the notion of huq, which is often mistakenly translated only as right, and its relationship with hierarchical networks of obligation, this talk will address both the challenges and opportunities for critical theory in engaging with Islamic thought. Speaker Humeira Iqtidar is a Reader in Politics in the Department of Political Economy, at King's College London.

Talk | Exploring Conflict Intelligence Through the Lens of a Poem (online)


Each week from Feb 4 to Mar. 11, a different poem will be explored by the Irish poet and conflict mediator Pádraig Ó Tuama. His project during this time is exploring dynamics of conflict and sustainability through the lens of poetry. Poetry is a communicative technology that has emerged from every culture on earth. For as long as there’s been literature, individuals have turned to poetry for the purpose of communicating what mere sentences cannot communicate. At poetry’s heart can be ambivalence, rage, lament, resistance, regression, the murky world of dreams, and anxiety. In this way, poetry is primed to provide interest into the human animal’s behavior during times of conflict.

Opening Reception | A Plant Has Been One of My Best Friends for a Long Time Now: Group Exhibition


Five artists -- Raynes Birkbeck, Dietmar Busse, Joe Roberts, Paul Wackers, and Faye Wei Wei -- are brought together. Each artist’s distinct use of narrative and self-generated myth runs concurrent to their visual practice. The paintings, drawings, and photos are a reflection of the artist’s rich inner world. The works share a restrained depth of field, yet beneath the surface lives multi-dimensional intensity. The exhibition title is borrowed from a line written on a Joe Robert’s drawing. This sentiment echoes the kind of growth and expansion that stems from personal reverie. The artist’s thought process becomes a catalyst leading the viewer down the rabbit hole.

Lecture | The Five Joyces: How James Joyce Was Read in Russia (online)


While James Joyce's place in the modernist pantheon has long been firmly entrenched, its resonances continue to be uncovered. In the Russian context, the Irish writer has occupied many roles since his work was first translated in the mid-1920s. This talk will trace the development not of a monolithic Joyce, but rather of five separate Russian Joyces -- the versions of the author imagined by his Russian readers. This is a tour of the Joycean strains in the work of Yury Olesha, Vladimir Nabokov, Andrei Bitov, Sasha Sokolov, and Mikhail Shishkin, who each drew from their predecessor's texts, particularly Ulysses and Finnegans Wake, to address the volatile questions of lineages in their respective Soviet, emigre, and post-Soviet contexts. As a coda, selections from interviews with contemporary writers will show how the debates regarding Joyce's legacy are no less settled a century after Ulysses. Speaker Jose Vergara is Assistant Professor of Russian at Bryn Mawr College. He specializes in prose of the long twentieth century, with an emphasis on experimental works. His first book, All Future Plunges to the Past: James Joyce in Russian Literature, explores how Russian writers from the mid-1920s on have read and creatively responded to Joyce's fiction.

Talk | On Being Stuck: Drawing Latino Depression (online)


This talk considers the recent proliferation of narratives about Latino depression. These narratives often deploy depression to highlight masculinities and national identities that are in crisis. The aesthetic—in particular, writing and other forms of artistic creation—emerge in these stories as a key way of managing and working through depressive states, and of imagining new forms of manhood that could refurbish group identities. Focusing on Wilfred Santiago’s 2007 graphic novel In My Darkest Hour, this talk considers how Latinx comic art steers this narrative in new directions by portraying aesthetic engagements with depression that see it not as something to be overcome but as resource for dwelling in the world as one explores the potential contained in the present impasse.  Speaker; William Orchard
