Author Reading | Resilient Communities: Non-Violence and Civilian Agency in Communal War


Jana Krause focuses on civilian agency and mobilization 'from below' and explains violence and non-violence in communal wars. Drawing on extensive field research on ethno-religious conflicts in Ambon/Maluku Province in eastern Indonesia and Jos/Plateau State in central Nigeria, this book shows how civilians responded to local conflict dynamics very differently, evading, supporting, or collectively resisting armed groups.

Classical Music | Bach at Noon


The organ works of J.S. Bach (1685-1750) offered in 30-minute meditations. Johann Sebastian Bach was a German composer and musician of the Baroque period. He is known for instrumental compositions such as the Brandenburg Concertos and the Goldberg Variations as well as for vocal music such as the St. Matthew Passion and the Mass in B minor. Since the 19th-century Bach has been generally regarded as one of the greatest composers of all time. "The term 'baroque' has been widely used since the 19th century to describe the period in Western European art music from about 1600 to 1750... Many famous composers from the first part of the baroque period came from Italy and have a link with Venice, including Claudio Monteverdi and Antonio Vivaldi. Monteverdi was born in Cremona, but moved to Venice where he was 'maestro di capella' at the San Marco basilica. Vivaldi was born in Venice and was one of the greatest baroque composers. It is thanks to these strong musical traditions of Venice that we have today's music. Without Venetian church music and Monteverdi's advances with polyphony, the great traditions of choral music in England, France, and Germany would never have developed. Without the operas written by Monteverdi, Cavalli and Vivaldi, not only would the later styles of opera never have been invented. There would be no basis for the American Musical or the German and Viennese Operetta, the Spanish Zarzuela, and even rock, pop, and contemporary music as we know it." The Venice Insider Bach at Noon concerts take place every Tuesdays through Fridays, from September 10, 2019 to May 20, 2020.

Sarah Pillow, voice; Mary Anne Ballard, viola da gamba; Ronn McFarlane, lute.

Galileo's Daughters combines music, spoken word and the visual arts to create thought-provoking and intriguing programs.

Author Reading | Understanding Institutional Weakness: Power and Design in Latin American Institutions


Whereas people often turn to institutions – the rules that structure human interactions – to understand outcomes, and to effect policy changes, both analysts and policymakers often decry the failure of weak institutions to accomplish their purpose in Latin America. In this book, María Victoria Murillo, Daniel Brinks and Steven Levitsky offer a conceptual framework for studying weak institutions, and a typology of institutional weakness that helps to clarify the political puzzles posed by institutions that do not accomplish their ostensible purpose.

Lecture | Ethnographic Writing: Reconstructing Voice as Dramatic Dialogue


This talk asks questions about the representation of voice in reporting ethnographic research. Instead of the single, unifying consciousness of the ethnographic author binding together narrative and meaning, the presentation considers an approach to ethnographic writing which is polyphonic, dialogic, and unfinalized. Here structural elements of the text are devoted less to the unity of a single account than to the task of creating a polyphonic world. The presentation places in the foreground the voices of research participants, reconstructing them as dramatic dialogue. The research reported here was part of a four-year project which set out to understand how people communicate across diverse languages and cultures. The research project was conducted across four cities in the UK. Multilingual interactions were observed and recorded in markets, corner shops, libraries, sports clubs, arts groups, legal advice bureaux, and welfare advice centres[i].

Purdy Eaton’s upcoming exhibition explores the essence of all life: plants, animals, humans, kings, queens, and cockroaches are all bound to the same ethos. The chaos of politics, climate volatility, and random violence is rightfully fear inducing and overwhelming, yet there is something hopeful and meditative about the reality you eat you live, you eat you die. There will always be a tomorrow no matter how dystopic.

A fresh, new series of portrait paintings by Tara Lewis. Hell Yes! portrays real-life subjects adorned with incongruous props, artist-made t-shirts and satin pageant sashes boasting pop culture text idioms. Her portrait process happens organically as models go through her wardrobe, accessories and props to discover a 'persona'. These 'play-dates' serve as a pivotal ingredient for her practice as they are the underpinning of the subsequent photoshoot that serves as the source material for her paintings.

Author Reading | Parapliers the Willow Dipped, Paintings 1967-1997


An exhibition of works by Don Van Vliet. A celebrated, prodigious child sculptor who grew up to reinvent himself as the legendary musician Captain Beefheart, Don Van Vliet today holds a place in rock-and-roll history as one of the most exacting and unconventional recording artists of his time. Van Vliet brought the wrenching howl of Delta blues to bear on his own oddball, avant-gardist boogie, recording challenging music that divided listeners and inspired generations. Van Vliet painted throughout his many years performing, and in the mid-1980s turned away from music to devote his intense creative energy solely to painting. Chosen by artist Spencer Sweeney, the works comprising Parapliers the Willow Dipped explore the range of Van Vliet's output over three decades and present an artist fully in tune with the legacies of European and American painting.

Author Reading | Disturbance: Surviving the Charlie Hebdo Attack


Disturbance is Philippe Lancon's memoir on surviving the Charlie Hebdo attack recently published by Europa Editions. Lancon, a journalist, author, and a weekly contributor to Charlie Hebdo was gravely wounded in the January 7, 2015 attack at that magazine's Paris offices. The residual trauma upended his relationship to the world, to writing, to reading, to love and to friendship. As he attempted to reconstruct his life on the page, Lancon reread Proust, Thomas Mann, Kafka, and others, in search of guidance. Disturbance is not an essay on terrorism nor is it a witness's account of Charlie Hebdo. It is an honest, intimate account of a man seeking to put his life back together after it has been torn apart. It is a book about survival, resilience, and reconstruction, about transformation, about one man's shifting relationship to time, to writing and journalism, to truth, and to his own body.

Author Reading | Inventing Tomorrow: H. G. Wells and the Twentieth Century


Sarah Cole provides a definitive account of Wells’s work and ideas. She contends that Wells casts new light on modernism and its values: on topics from warfare to science to time, his work resonates both thematically and aesthetically with some of the most ambitious modernists. At the same time, unlike many modernists, Wells believed that literature had a pressing place in public life, and his works reached a wide range of readers. While recognizing Wells’s limitations, Cole offers a new account of his distinctive style as well as his interventions into social and political thought. She illuminates how Wells embodies twentieth-century literature at its most expansive and engaged. An ambitious rethinking of Wells as both writer and thinker, Inventing Tomorrow suggests that he offers a timely model for literature’s moral responsibility to imagine a better global future.

Discussion | The Hard Problem of Consciousness


Historically, one of the toughest nuts to crack in both philosophy and science has been the so-called “hard problem of consciousness”: How is it possible for the hard-wiring of our brain to produce inner perception, sentient experience, and self-awareness? It’s a much more difficult conundrum to solve than one might expect upon first glance. Because science is inherently objective, while consciousness is subjective, it has been very difficult for experts working from both sides of the divide to bridge this gap – to explain the precise mechanisms of conscious experience.

Concert | Porgy & Bess The AstroBlack Trapfish Row Variations: A "Carmelization" of Gershwin


Burnt Sugar The Arkestra Chamber presents the U.S. premiere of their “caramelization” of Gershwin’s melancholic masterpiece. With overt nods to Miles Davis and Gil Evans’s brassy and melodius 1966 distillation of Porgy & Bess, Burnt Sugar’s varied arrangers and conductors turn a dub wise, samba-licious, and ska-inflected ear towards the twerk-inducing cadences of latter-day Southern hip-hop and the cosmic jungle music of 1970s Miles Davis. Founded by Greg Tate and co-led with Dayton, Ohio monster bassist Jared Michael Nickerson since 1999, Burnt Sugar The Arkestra Chamber is a sprawling band of musicians whose prodigious personnel allows them to freely juggle a wide swath of the experimental soul-jazz-hip hop spectrum.
