Book Discussion | The True Stories of @: A Symbol's History (online)


A quarter of a century ago, the spread of email made the ‘at’ sign an instant icon of digital communication and of modern times. But how did it end up on computer keyboards in the first place? The more evidence has been offered, the more uncertain and controversial its historical origins have become. A short book recently published by Marc Smith assesses the existing theories and their flimsy documentary basis, before adding much new material  from ca 1400 to the present. It is now possible to chart the history of the @ sign throughout Europe and across technological shifts, from medieval notaries to Renaissance merchants and calligraphers, from Miguel de Cervantes to 18th-century grammar books and type specimens, and from the murderous accountant John Colt to early keyboards. The fact is that @ signs were used to abbreviate many words at different times and in different languages — but the life story of @ in its current form and function is entirely distinct and goes back to a simple one-letter word meaning both 'to' and 'at'.

Book Discussion | Novel Environments: Science, Description, and Victorian Fiction (in-person and online)


The environment concept has shaped humanity's relationship to the natural world and has drawn attention to the effects of human actions on our natural surroundings. But when did we learn that we live in an environment? While scholars have often located the emergence of the environment concept in twentieth-century ecological and political thought, Jayne Hildebrand's book reconstructs a longer―and a specifically literary―history. It was in the descriptive worldmaking of the Victorian novel that the environment was first transformed from an abstraction into a vivid object of imagination and feeling. Engaging the scientific theories of their contemporaries, Mary Russell Mitford, George Eliot, Thomas Hardy, and Robert Louis Stevenson turned to detailed description―from gardens and landscapes to weather and atmospheres-to model interactions between life and its surroundings. Far from merely furnishing static background, the descriptive apparatus of the Victorian novel imagined the nonhuman environment as dynamically involved with human action, feeling, and development.

Book Club | Graphic Novel Book Club: It Rhymes with Lust By Arnold Drake, Leslie Waller, and Matt Baker


In 1950, writers Arnold Drake and Leslie Waller, both attending college on the G.I. Bill, envisioned a sophisticated, novel-length comic tailored to their peers. Collaborating with comic art master Matt Baker, known for singularly defining the genre of "good girl art" on titles such as Phantom Lady, they crafted a film-noir inspired masterwork of romance, intrigue, and moral relativity. When cynical newspaperman Hal Weber reunites with old flame Rust Masson, he finds the beguiling widow of a mining magnate willing to do anything to undermine the local political machine - her only opponent for total control of Copper City!

Talk | Behind the Great Art and the Great Message Stands Arthur Szyk, the Great Man (online)


Polish-born Jewish artist Arthur Szyk (Lodz, 1894--New Canaan, CT 1951) was a great advocate for humanity and for the global Jewish community. Szyk (pronounced Shik) achieved world-wide recognition in the 1920s and 1930s in Poland, France, and England before immigrating to the U.S. in 1940 where he went on to become the leading anti-Nazi artist during World War II. Szyk is also famous for his illuminated Passover Haggadah, and his iconic towering Holy Ark for the Forest Hills Jewish Center. Szyk's work fought injustice and intolerance, bigotry and racism as a "soldier in art." This lecture by Szyk scholar Irvin Ungar will explore how and why Szyk is the artist of and for the Jewish people, and the ways his art and spirit remain eternal in the service of mankind.

Discussion | Grammy Winning Bassist and Composer in Conversation


The Grammy-winning bassist and composer Christian McBride speaks on his work at the intersection of art and advocacy. Last year Christian McBride reissued his landmark 1998 composition, The Movement Revisited: A Musical Portrait of Four Icons. The album is dedicated to Black history and the work of four key figures of the Civil Rights Movement: Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X, Rosa Parks, and Muhammad Ali. McBride's musical career has never turned its eye from advocacy and justice: from chairing a town hall on racism in the performing arts in 1997 with then-President Bill Clinton to running the Jazz House Kids community arts organization. He'll speak with author and critic Nelson George about the power of art to impact critical issues and the responsibilities we have to build upon the legacies of generations past.
