Book Discussion | After Claude: The Prophetess of Greenwich Village


In Iris Owens's novel, Harriet is leaving her boyfriend Claude, “the French rat.” That at least is how Harriet sees things, even if it’s Claude who has just asked Harriet to leave his Greenwich Village apartment. Well, one way or another she has no intention of leaving. To the contrary, she will stay and exact revenge—or would have if Claude had not had her unceremoniously evicted. Still, though moved out, Harriet is not about to move on. Not in any way. Girlfriends circle around to patronize and advise, but Harriet only takes offense, and it’s easy to understand why. Because mad and maddening as she may be, Harriet sees past the polite platitudes that everyone else is content to spout and live by. She is an unblinkered, unbuttoned, unrelenting, and above all bitingly funny prophetess of all that is wrong with women’s lives and hearts—until, in a surprise twist, she finds a savior in a dark room at the Chelsea Hotel.

Lecture | The Epistemology of Racial Metaphor: Understanding the War on "Woke"


Kendall Thomas will discuss the epistemology of racial metaphor. The lecture will use the concept of "compulsory illiteracy" as an organizing theoretical frame for reflecting on "word politics" of the (so-called) critical race theory culture wars. Thomas argues that what some have called "The Age of Trump" has to be understood as a battle over the right to democratic literacy that involves nothing less than a "kulturkampf" about the democratization of language.

Lecture | Marina City: An Experiment in Concrete Construction (online)


How Chicago’s famous twin apartment towers used concrete toward important social and political ends in the early 1960s. Skyscraper histories often focus on the development of the skeletal iron frame as a key development, but this was paralleled by the equally important evolution of reinforced concrete as a competing structural material. Concrete’s plasticity and its monolithic nature have allowed a wide variety of architectural forms and engineering approaches. It has sometimes worked with steel framing to achieve great heights, but concrete has also often taken on skyscrapers’ gravity and wind loads on its own. This lecture will examine key experiments in concrete construction. Architect Geoffrey Goldberg will talk on Marina City in Chicago, the remarkable pair of 61-story cylindrical towers completed in 1964. Goldberg will describe how that city’s famous twin apartment towers used concrete toward important social and political ends in the early 1960s.\

Discussion | When Nazis Came to Illinois: The History of the Skokie Case (online)


In 1977, Skokie, Illinois was home to around 40,500 Jews, thousands of whom were Holocaust survivors. Then, the National Socialist Party of America, a group of self-styled Nazis planned a march. In March of that year, the group requested a permit to march through the village, and were sued by Skokie to prevent it. The American Civil Liberties Union decided, controversially, to represent the Nazis on the basis of free speech, and the case eventually went to the United States Supreme Court, who ruled they should be allowed to march due to free speech concerns. Arnie Bernstein, author of Swastika Nation: Fritz Kuhn and the Rise and Fall of the German-American Bund, and Dr. Philippa Strum, former ACLU National Board member and Global Fellow at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, in conversation about the case and its implications for our current time.

Lecture | Ukrainian Composers in the Time of War: An Oral and Video Presentation by Musicologist Dr. Oksana Nesterenko


Since the Russian invasion of February 24, 2022, an overwhelming majority of composers in Ukraine have remained determined to continue making music despite unprecedented circumstances, such as frequent air raids, electricity shortages and strikes on civilian targets. Moreover, the escalation of the military conflict has changed their creative outlook in significant ways. The need to draw international attention to the cruelty of war and the desire to protect future generations from similar misfortunes, triggered the transformation of apolitical composers into messengers, diplomats, social commentators and sonic writers of history.  This presentation by Dr. Oksana Nesterenko will discuss the responses of Ukrainian composers of art music to the 2022 Russian invasion, and describe the range of their emotions triggered by the war itself and by its sounds. The presentation will feature video recordings of music composed in 2022-2023 by Valentyn Silvestrov, Victoria Polyova, Zoltan Almashi, Roman Grygoriv, and Illia Razumeiko that have been performed in major concert halls in New York, Western Europe, and Ukraine over the past year. About the Speaker Dr. Oksana Nesterenko is a musicologist specializing in twentieth- and twenty-first-century music, with the focus on Eastern Europe and postcolonial studies. She earned a PhD in Music History and Theory at Stony Brook University in 2021 and presently teaches at Union College. Her current book project, A Forbidden Fruit? Sacred Music in the USSR before its Fall, explores concert music with religious and spiritual themes, composed in four Soviet republics: Armenia, Estonia, Russia, and Ukraine. She hosts the podcast Extended Techniques and serves on the advisory board of the Ukrainian Contemporary Music Festival in New York. Registration required.
