Lecture | Danger Zone: The Coming Conflict with China (online)


It is conventional wisdom that America and China are running a "superpower marathon" that may last a century. But the sharpest phase of that competition will be a decade-long sprint, and the moment of maximum danger could be just a few years away. America will still need a long-term strategy for competing with China. But first, it needs a near-term strategy for navigating the danger zone ahead.

Talk | New York City’s Lost Canals (online)


While New York City sat at the nexus of many important canals built in the 19th century — the Erie, Morris, and Delaware & Raritan among them — the city had its own internal network of lesser-known canals, some filled in, some never built, and some still with us today. Examine the ambitious schemes from the 17th century onward to connect the city’s bays and streams, from the Heere Graft of New Amsterdam to the Wallabout Canal of Brooklyn.

Lecture | Moscow of the Plan/Moscow of the Shadows: Skyscrapers and Displacement During Late Stalinism (online)


In the early years of the Cold War, the skyline of Moscow was forever transformed by a citywide skyscraper building project. As the steel girders of the monumental towers went up, the centuries-old metropolis was reinvented to embody the greatness of Stalinist society. This talk delves into the ideological tensions and social cleavages exposed by Stalinist skyscraper construction. Contrasting the ideal city of the plan with the shadow city that emerged to support it, the talk focuses on the challenges posed by the displacement of residents away from plots chosen for monumental redevelopment. Lecturer Katherine Zubovich is Assistant Professor of Russian History at the University at Buffalo, SUNY. In 2021-22, she is a James H. Billington Fellow at the Kennan Institute in Washington D.C.. Her first book, Moscow Monumental: Soviet Skyscrapers and Urban Life in Stalin’s Capital, was published by Princeton University Press in Dec 2020.

Talk | Fear of the Decaying State: On Clowns and Compost (online)


Performer and compost-lover Alex Tatarsky will share some ongoing research into the connections between clowns and dirt clods – considering their shared choreographies of falling down and falling apart. Tracing American fear of the so-called “scary clown” alongside efforts to keep waste and rot out of sight, Tatarsky examines the pathologizing impulse towards those figures and substances whose presence suggests in-between, ambiguous, and disordered states. If laughter is a mode of displacing abjection, can the fool guide us towards generative decay? An etymological foray, essay as sashay, clown talk in the abyss.
