Lecture | Libertarian Noir: Exit Strategies and New Enclosures 1960 to the Present (online)


In the aftermath of World War II, decolonization and the cold war wrought dramatic geopolitical changes around the globe. In the US, battles were waged over the meaning of ideals such as democracy, equality, and freedom, often pitting those who believed in individual liberty and social equality as mutually reinforcing aspirations against those who prioritized liberty and believed equality would follow. In the midst of such struggles, some individuals concerned with protecting their wealth, their safety, and their freedom from what they perceived to be an encroaching state and a threatening rabble, sought to exit the nation-states to which they belonged and to establish their own independent, sovereign, and private countries on ocean and island spaces. Rarely successful, they nevertheless established a precedent for today’s current exit advocates—from seasteaders to advocates for free private cities, from Milton Friedman’s grandson Patri to anarcho-capitalist architect Patrik Schumacher—who aspire to new forms of colonization and enclosure in the midst of proliferating political and climate crises. Speaker Raymond Craib is Marie Underhill Noll Professor of History at Cornell University.

Discussion | Policy in Context: Africa’s External Debt (online)


Should Africans be concerned about their countries’ growing debt stock? This is a virtual discussion with George Bodo and Dr. Adedeji Adeniran. The moderated conversation will examine issues of economic sovereignty, administration of the state, and socioeconomic development as they relate to Africa’s accumulating external debt. Debt is complex, and in many parts of Africa has played a prominent but controversial role in the continent’s developmental trajectory to date. While the rapidly rising rates of consumption and investment across Africa have been stimulated in large part by financing from debt, the economic development in many of these countries has come at a large price–currently, 22 African countries are either in debt distress or at high risk of debt distress and the total external debt stock of Sub-Saharan Africa rose to over USD 700 billion in 2020. With the covid-19 pandemic exacerbating financial pressures on both lenders and borrowers alike, the servicing, restructuring, and defaulting on debt is likely to play an increasingly important role in the continent’s near future. The public can therefore benefit a great deal from a more comprehensive understanding of the basics of Africa’s current debt situation and a nuanced explanation of how, if at all, the situation can be expected to affect their lives.

Book Discussion | Reparative Citizenship for Sephardi Descendants: Returning to the Jewish Past in Spain and Portugal (online)


In 2015, both Portugal and Spain passed laws enabling descendants of Sephardi Jews to obtain citizenship, an historic offer of reconciliation for Jews who were forced to undergo conversions or expelled from Iberia nearly half a millennia ago. Drawing on the memory of the expulsion from Sepharad, the scholarly and personal essays in Reparative Citizenship for Sephardi Descendants analyze the impact of reconciliation laws on descendants and contemporary forms of citizenship.

Book Club | "Sin of Omission" by Ana María Matute (In Person AND Online)


"Sin of Omission" is a 1961 short story published in the book Historias de la Artámila by Ana María Matute. Originally published in Spanish as “Pecado de Omission,” the story is about a 13-year-old boy named Lope, whose destiny opts to throw him into a life of an orphan leaving school to meet his end in poverty-stricken conditions. Ana María Matute Ausejo (1925-2014) was a Catalan writer, member of the Royal Spanish Academy, and the third woman to be part of that institution in 300 years. She belonged to the generation of "astonished young people," a name that she herself would coin for authors who reflect the situation of the Spanish Civil War in their childhood. Her literary style is considered realistic, and her narrative is characterized by fantasy and lyricism. She was awarded many literary prizes, the most notable being the Cervantes Prize, considered the most prestigious prize in Spanish letters.

Book Discussion | In the Garden of the Righteous: The Heroes Who Risked Their Lives to Save Jews During the Holocaust (in-person and online)


Richard Hurowitz's powerfully illuminating and inspiring chronicle pays tribute to the incredible and often little-known deeds of non-Jewish people who took on great danger during the Holocaust in order to save countless lives. The author will be in conversation with the Director of the Jewish Studies Center, Leah Garrett. More than 27,000 individuals have been recognized by Yad Vashem, the Holocaust Memorial in Jerusalem, as "Righteous Among the Nations"--a term describing non-Jewish people who risked their lives, their livelihoods, and the safety of their families to rescue their persecuted neighbors. In the Garden of the Righteous tells the remarkable stories of 10 of the most heroic among them, including: the circus ringmaster Adolf Althoff and his wife Maria; the Portuguese diplomat Aristides de Sousa Mendes; the Italian cycling champion Gino Bartali; the Polish social worker Irena Sendler; and the Japanese spy Chinue Sugihara, who provided hiding places, participated in underground networks, and helped secure safe passage. Amid the incomprehensible horror of the Holocaust and the passive apathy of millions, these extraordinary individuals provided--as Hurowitz so poignantly shows--cause for hope. In the Garden of the Righteous is a testament to their kindness and courage.

Lecture | Does the Ocean Have a Floor? Melville's Ontology of the Archipelago


In this talk, Branka Arsić (Columbia University) focuses on images of the elemental, vegetal and animal that traverse Melville's work as a means of investigating how he imagined the capacity of matter to move and transform. In Melville, not only different forms of life, but also elements enter into strange assemblages: moss grows on animals, vegetation turns out to be made of stones, metal glitters on the feet of tortoises, dogs host humans, and lizards hiss with divine anger. This talk reads such strange taxonomies against the backdrop of contemporary American science, cosmologies of the Pacific islands, and a series of ethnographic narratives of African religions and customs known to Melville, to chart how their divergent accounts of matter gave rise to his stories of metamorphosis and conjuration, with complex political consequences.

Book Discussion | His Name Is George Floyd: One Man's Life and the Struggle for Racial Justice


A discussion with Toluse Olorunnipa, journalist and co-author of the 2023 Pulitzer prize-winning book, which explores the legacy of racial injustice and police brutality in the U.S, through the complicated and uniquely American life of George Floyd. While the circumstances surrounding his tragic passing at the hands of police are familiar to most-as they sparked an unprecedented global movement for change-much about his life leading up to his death remains relatively unknown. The book is a heartfelt but uncompromising look at George Floyd's complicated life within the context of an American society laden with social, economic, and judicial pitfalls.

Book Discussion | Shy: The Alarmingly Outspoken Memoirs of Mary Rodgers, with New York Times Theater Critic Jesse Green


When Mary Rodgers began her memoir about her life as the daughter of composer Richard Rodgers and, later, as the mother of composer Adam Guettel, she set out to be honest, unabashedly so. In her posthumously published book, which was co-authored by Green, the reader comes to know her as a musical genius herself and the sometimes wounded daughter of a famous father and difficult mother. Her work lives on as the composer of Broadway sensation Once Upon A Mattress. She collaborated with everyone from Judy Holliday to Carol Burnett and Leonard Bernstein, along with romantic interludes with Stephen Sondheim and Hal Prince. Jesse Green reveals how he finished the book, why Rodgers’s life resonates with us still, and what her life can teach us.

Book Discussion | The Confidante: The Untold Story of the Woman Who Helped Win WWII and Shape Modern America (online)


A Hungarian Jewish immigrant with only a high school education, Anna Marie Rosenberg, FDR's special envoy to Europe in World War II, was among the first Allied women to enter a liberated concentration camp, and stood in the Eagle's Nest, Hitler's mountain retreat, days after its capture. She was a key figure behind national policies critical to America winning the war and prospering afterwards, guiding the direction of the Manhattan Project and the G.I. Bill of Rights. In this first-ever biography of Rosenberg, who was dubbed by Life Magazine "the most important woman in the American government," Christopher C. Gorham affords her the recognition she so richly deserves.

Video | Maintaining Clarity: Recent Works in Distribution


An eclectic selection of videos ranging from frenetic experiments to raw cell phone footage, musical numbers to satirical riffs on sleek consumer electronics, culled from works recently added to our distribution catalogue. The evening takes its title from Ulysses Jenkins’s Sobriety (2022), a new video and song by his conceptual art band Othervisions about keeping one’s head above water amid tumult.  In this collection of short works, artists contend with technology’s travails and possibilities, exploring how digital devices interact with the corporeal world. Cecelia Condit’s AI and I considers the artist’s relationship to Amazon’s Alexa. Jayson Musson’s Blockedt! pitches a functionless “anti-social social networking” app, co-developed with Buzzfeed founder Jonah Peretti for Rhizome’s Seven on Seven. Shelly Silver’s Score for Joanna Kotze, described by the artist as a “dance film that primarily leaves us in the dark,” flickers through photographs of flowers, buildings, and debris, and C. Spencer Yeh’s Three Waves collages close-up video and recordings from the artist’s mouth. LoVid’s Three Moons compiles footage of weeds, wild flora, and friends in and around Long Island taken with a custom-built temporospatial camera, and Wu Tsang’s iPhone-shot Girl Talk captures poet and scholar Fred Moten letting loose to Josiah Wise’s cover of the eponymous 1965 jazz standard.  Following the program, there will be an informal chat with artists from the selection. An online, closed-captioned version of this program will be accessible for a limited time in March.

Book Discussion | The Absent Moon: A Memoir of a Short Childhood and a Long Depression


A literary sensation in Brazil, Luiz Schwarcz’s brave and tender memoir interrogates his ordeal of bipolar disorder in the context of a family story of murder, dispossession, and silence—the long echo of the Holocaust across generations When Luiz Schwarcz was a child, he was told little about his grandfather and namesake, Láios—“Luiz” in Hungarian. Only later in life did he learn that his grandfather, a devout Hungarian Jew, had defied his country’s Nazi occupiers by holding secret religious services in his home. After being put on a train to a German death camp with his son André, Láios ordered André to leap from the train to freedom at a rail crossing, while Láios himself was carried on to his death. What Luiz did know was that his father André, who had emigrated to Brazil, was an unhappy and silent man. Young Luiz assumed responsibility for his parents’ comfort, as many children of trauma do, and for a time he seemed to be succeeding: he blossomed into the family prodigy, eventually growing into a groundbreaking literary publisher in São Paulo. He found a home in the family silence—a home that he filled with books and with reading. But then, at a high point of outward success, Luiz was brought low by a devastating mental breakdown. The Absent Moon is the story of his journey to that point and of his journey back from it, as Luiz learned to forge a more honest relationship with his own mind, with his family, and with their shared past. The culmination of that path is this extraordinary book, which is beautiful, tragic, noble, piercingly honest, and ultimately redemptive—the product of a lifetime’s reflection, given powerful literary shape in the refiner’s fire by a master storyteller.
