Symposium | Generative AI, Free Speech, and Public Discourse


While the technology underlying generative AI has been decades in the making, to the public, the introduction of ChatGPT, Dall-E, and similar tools feels like a seismic shift in the relationship between humans and technology, especially technology used for expressive purposes. The emergence of generative AI models has been accompanied by predictions of dire harms, including a fresh deluge of disinformation, threats to free elections, and other attacks aimed at destabilizing democracies. This symposium will bring together leading scholars and practitioners in computer science, law, communications, and policy to debate some of the biggest questions machine-learning tools raise for the future of public discourse, free expression, and democracy.

Lecture | War, Hope, and Ukraine’s Global Significance (in-person and online)


A lecture by Piotr Kaszuwara, a reporter, journalist, and war correspondent for the Polish Onet.pl and Radio 357, who has been actively engaged in covering the war in Ukraine. In 2016, he was among the first Western journalists to cross the border between Ukraine and the unrecognized pro-Russian entity known as the Donetsk People’s Republic. Through numerous radio and television productions, as well as written articles, Kaszuwara has shed light on the complexities of the conflict and continued to visit the frontlines in Donbas. In 2022, as the conflict escalated, Kaszuwara transitioned from journalism to humanitarian efforts in Ukraine. He founded the UA Future Foundation, actively involved in saving lives on the frontlines. The foundation provided food to the residents of Bachmut until January 2023, and volunteers have continued their efforts in places like Awdijiwka, Orichov, Izium, and Cherson. Aside from supporting thousands of civilians, UA Future, in collaboration with international partners, supplies essential medical resources to civilian hospitals and stabilization points closer to the front. The foundation actively supports Polish and American volunteer groups with life-saving equipment. How do the events in small villages in the forgotten Donbas, in eastern Ukraine, impact global politics? Why is Ukraine a litmus test for NATO and international law adherence? What are the consequences if Russia conquers or destabilizes Ukraine as a sovereign state? How does Russian propaganda exploit conflicts within the European Union, NATO, or Israel for its own purposes? How does the war in Ukraine influence the international standing of the United States?

Book Discussion | Steve McCurry: Devotion


Renowned Magnum and National Geographic photographer Steve McCurry launches his new monograph. This collection of images explores human spirituality in all its remarkable diversity and beauty. Steve McCurry is known for his compelling and evocative images that capture the human experience and the spirit of place; his 1984 portrait of Sharbat Gula, the Afghan Girl, is one of the world’s most recognizable photographs. This powerful collection of spiritually inflected images is gleaned from the entirety of McCurry’s forty-year career traveling to every corner of the globe. From a mosque in Afghanistan to Burma’s Golden Rock; an Easter offering in Paraguay to an elderly couple at Lourdes; a Tibetan monk in India to evangelicals in America’s heartland—McCurry captures penetrating moments of devotion, loyalty, faithfulness, and dedication. Reproduced in stunning color, these photographs honor the universal desire to create meaning in the midst of everyday life and offer viewers an opportunity to connect with their own spirituality—whatever form that takes.

Book Discussion | The New Suburbia: How Diversity Remade Suburban Life in Los Angeles after 1945 (online)


The conventional story of suburbs as bastions of white, middle-class homeowners no longer describes the suburbs of America's cities. Today they house a more typical cross-section of the nation – rich, poor, Black American, Latino, Asian, immigrant, the unhoused, the lavishly housed, and everyone in between. Nowhere, writes historian Becky Nicolaides, are these changes more vivid than in Los Angeles, where stories of everyday suburban life have taken on new inflections.

Talk | Cleopatra and Fake News


The Cleopatra we know today is a product of what we would call "fake news." In this talk, Egyptologist Jacquelyn Williamson discusses how Roman propaganda against Cleopatra VII, propelled the unpopular Octavian, later known as Augustus Caesar, into power. His disinformation campaign became an accepted historic fact, which influenced Shakespeare's play and later Hollywood scripts, creating a false image of Cleopatra.

Book Discussion | The Weird Sister Collection: Writing at the Intersections of Feminism, Literature, and Pop Culture


Selected contributors celebrate a new collection of writing for the iconic underground blog Weird Sister. Collecting the best of Weird Sister, these unapologetic and insightful essays link contemporary feminism to literature and pop culture. Launched in 2014, Weird Sister proudly staked out a corner of the internet where feminist writers could engage with the literary and popular culture that excited or enraged them. The blog made space amid book websites dominated by white male editors and contributors, and also committed to covering literary topics in-depth when larger feminist outlets rarely could. Throughout its decade-long run, Weird Sister served as an early platform for some of contemporary literature's most striking voices, naming itself a website that "speaks its mind and snaps its gum and doesn't apologize." Edited by founder Marisa Crawford, The Weird Sister Collection brings together the work of longtime contributors such as Morgan Parker, Christopher Soto, Soleil Ho, Julian Delgado Lopera, Virgie Tovar, Jennif(f)er Tamayo, and more, alongside new original essays. Offering nuanced insight into contemporary and historical literature, in conversation with real-life and timely social issues, these pieces mark a transitional and transformative moment in online and feminist writing.

Book Discussion | The Op-Ed Novel: A Literary History of Post-Franco Spain


Bécquer Seguín presents a new history of contemporary Spanish fiction through the prism of novelists’ newspaper columns. Public intellectuals come in many different stripes, but most of them gain a following at least in part from their writing, whether in the form of magazine articles, newspaper columns, or full-length nonfiction. A few—James Baldwin and Joan Didion are celebrated examples—start out as novelists before turning to the rough-and-tumble of current affairs. Author Bécquer Seguín undertakes the first book-length study of how contemporary literature is shaped by opinion journalism, focusing on fiction writers who took to the papers in post-Franco Spain and became stewards of their country’s cultural, economic, and political future.

Book Discussion | Duel in the Deep: The Hunters, the Hunted, and a High Seas Fight to the Finish (online)


Author David Sears will speak on his book. Duel in the Deep recounts the story of the U.S. Navy destroyer Borie, an outmoded, thin-skinned “tin can” of World War I vintage, which set out alone to track down an elusive U-boat. The Borie had thus far toiled in the war’s backwaters, her crew of young reservists anxious to prove its mettle. When Borie trapped U-405 on the surface, that chance arrived. As Borie’s deck guns unleashed withering fire and U-405’s skipper angled his submarine to launch torpedoes, Borie’s young skipper—a salesman in civilian life--resorted to the original (and once the only) means of sinking a submarine: ramming, full speed ahead, consequences be damned. Borie’s slashing collision with U-405 ignited a swashbuckling, no-holds-barred brawl of cannons, machine guns, small arms, and even knives and spent shell casings. In the wreckage-strewn aftermath, desperate sailors on both sides fought for survival in a heaving, frigid, unforgiving sea. Duel in the Deep weaves together high-stakes strategy and lethal gamesmanship with poignant human backstories, pounding air/surface/subsurface action, epic heroism, and wrenching sacrifice.

Dance Performance | Threshold al fresco: Contemporary Dance on Ice


Le Patin Libre presents Threshold al fresco, a contemporary dance revolution on ice. Audience members can watch Threshold al fresco for free if they arrive early and stand by the rink until the show starts. Le Patin Libre pushes the boundaries of traditional figure skating and put their own "spin" on the sport. Their style evolved to become what many now call "contemporary dance on ice". Le Patin Libre was founded in 2005, by Alexandre Hamel, then a competitive figure skater. The first performances were modestly offered on frozen ponds, during winter carnivals organized by most cities and villages in Qu?bec. On some nights, Hamel and his companions rented hockey ice arenas and turned them into wild dancing parties. Le Patin Libre developed its unique style based on the choreographic possibilities of glide. Glide allows the human body to move through space while being liberated from walking, running, crawling and other natural gestures.
