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.

Film | Audre Lorde: The Berlin Years 1984 to 1992 (2012)


This film explores a little-known chapter of the writer’s prolific life, a period in which she helped ignite the Afro-German Movement and made lasting contributions to the German political and cultural scene before and after the fall of the Berlin Wall. Lorde mentored and encouraged Black German women to write and publish as a way of asserting their identities, rights and culture in a society that isolated and silenced them, while she challenged white German women to acknowledge and constructively use their white privilege. This documentary contains previously unreleased audiovisual material from director Dagmar Schultz’s personal archive, including stunning images of Audre Lorde off stage. With testimony from Lorde’s colleagues, students and friends, this film documents Lorde’s lasting legacy in Germany. Director: Dagmar Schultz 81 min. Followed by post-screening conversation with Mayra A. Rodríguez Castro (author of Audre Lorde: Dreams of Europe) and Andreas Günther (Director of Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung- New York Office).
