Once a year, Fête de la Musique showcases some of France’s most vital voices. This year is no different. The singer-songwriter, Vianney, will be performing his affective tunes, which he does often using just his voice, a guitar, and a loop pedal. He’s joined by the idiosyncratic Chassol, a pianist, arranger, and musical director who’s known for his trailblazing “ultrascores,” and collaborative work with Phoenix, Sébastien Tellier, and Frank Ocean. Rounding out the celebration is renaissance man Joakim, a DJ and classically trained pianist who is also a producer, visual artist and sound designer.

Despite fifty years of LGBTQ progress, activists' more radical goals may have fallen by the wayside. A renowned historian and activist of the American left and LGBTQ movements, Martin Duberman recounts the progressive vision for society as a whole and critiques the left's failure to embrace the queer potential for social transformation. Not without hope, Duberman's history lesson can shine a light towards a truly inclusive and expansive society.   Duberman will be joined in conversation by Jason Baumann, Coordinator of Humanities and LGBT Collections. Registration does not guarantee admission. Priority will be given to those who have registered in advance. The Program Room opens at 6 PM.

Discussion |
During the 20th century, the relationship between capitalism and democracy seemed (to the mainstream) a solid one. Yet, not all felt this way. In 1944 an economist called Karl Polanyi wrote a book which challenged this idea in the wake of the events which lead to fascist Europe. Writer Caleb Crain makes an analysis of Polanyi’s relevance to our own turbulent times through a review of author Robert Kuttner’s Can Democracy Survive Global Capitalism? Crain has published book reviews and essays in publications including The New Yorker, The New York Review of Books, The London Review of Books, The Nation, The New York Times Book Review, Out and The New Republic. He also published the non-fiction book American Sympathy: Men, Friendship, and Literature in the New Nation.
