Symposium |


Epidemics, like weather and climate, do not respect national borders. Since 2005 there has been increasing international cooperation on global health security. The Lancet Commission proposed access to climate services as a key indicator of adaptation and resilience to climate change for the health sector. As many health outcomes are climate sensitive there is increasing interest in integrating knowledge and information on climate variability and change into the operational activities for the control of infectious diseases, public health outcomes of disasters and nutrition. This satellite session will explore the intersection of climate variability and change and health priorities for vulnerable populations around the globe.

Classical Music |


Sung by one of the world’s most celebrated vocal ensembles, this program was designed to complement the exhibit of Renaissance playing cards mounted at The Met Cloisters in early 2016. As an example of popular medieval and early Renaissance games, playing cards provide a window into an intellectual culture that delighted in games. All of the sets showed ingenious ways to illustrate numbers, suits, and face cards, reminding us that the late Middle Ages was a period fascinated by games and puzzles. This fascination extended to music. POMERIUM, founded by Alexander Blachly in New York in 1972 to perform music composed for the famed chapel choirs of the Renaissance, derives its name from the title of a treatise by the 14th-century music theorist Marchettus of Padua.The modern Pomerium is currently recording a series of compact discs of the masterpieces of Renaissance a cappella choral music, of which the sixteenth to be recorded, Musical Games, Puzzles, and Riddles of the Renaissance, will be released in the summer of 2017.

Lecture |


In the mid-twentieth-century U.S., psychiatrists were among the most powerful arbiters of judgment and authority over sexual and gender difference. This talk explores the encounter of sexual- and gender-variant people with psychiatry and psychoanalysis and examines the role of psychiatric scrutiny and stigma in the making of modern sexuality. Focusing on the archive of St. Elizabeths Hospital, the federal hospital for the mentally ill in Washington, DC, Regina Kunzel of Princeton University reflects on its meaning and challenges to queer history.

Allison Miller has a proclivity to set up painterly problems and turn them into wonderment. Wonderment beaming all the more brightly due to the wrenches she throws into her picture machine. She understands that problems in part define the kind of work a painter chooses to do, and are not to be avoided but embraced. Allison Miller is a painter who can make a riddle out of an answer. Problems for her are the sparkly ruby slippers… keys to another dimension.

This exhibition presents new work from the Dharmapala Thangka Center in Nepal. It celebrates the significant and specific roles of female icons in the liberation and enlightenment of sentient beings. In Tibetan Buddhism, a female Buddha is considered to be the mother of all Buddhas and sentient beings. In Tantrism, female buddhas are important aspects of the enlightenment practice known as Atti yoga (maha yoga).  In Tibetan art, these female icons and figures are depicted as buddhas, bodhisattvas, historical figures such as lineage founders, and also yidams and dharma protectors in peaceful, semi-wrathful or wrathful forms.  Master artist Karsang Lama from the Dharmapala Center is a national treasure in Nepal and a world renowned painter of traditional tangkas.  His work appears in monasteries and museums in Asia, Europe and the United States.  The Dharmapala Thangka Center promotes the Himalayan Buddhist art and tradition, and is affiliated with a monastic tradition of the northern Buddhist artisans of Tibet and Nepal.

Lecture |


In most productions of Shakespeare’s Othello, only three female characters—Desdemona, Emilia, and Bianca—appear on stage. Additional female presences are verbally constructed through various narratives, particularly narratives about relationships and sexuality, told by other characters. When presented by male characters, the narratives often participate in masculinist rhetoric that denigrates either individual women or women in the aggregate. When presented by female characters, however, these narratives are efforts to forge female community or to help women, particularly Desdemona, make sense of their own isolated experiences.   These narratives hold out the potential for Desdemona to develop a sense of herself as a member of a larger community of women; however, they also demonstrate the difficulty of creating stable interpretations once the discourse of sexual activity is released into the public space. Speaker Cristine Varholy, Associate Professor of English at Hampden-Sydney College, has been the recipient of the Maurice L. Mednick Memorial Fellowship from the Virginia Foundation of Independent Colleges.

Ham Sup (b. 1942) has worked with hanji, traditional Korean paper made from the bark of mulberry trees, as his primary medium for over 30 years. Hanji is well known in Korea as a prized material for cultural and religious purposes, and has been an integral part of Korean daily life for centuries. While the traces of Korean history are immediately apparent in the medium and colors of his work, Ham’s unique artistic process reflects the visions of a true modern artist who effectively combines tradition and modern abstraction.

Lukas Lauermann presents his solo debut album How I Remember Now I Remember How with a New York premiere. He invites us to listen into “the great spaces all around” – spaces of memory, chambers of sensation, places of yearning. Lauermann understands the concept of reduction to imply, not the omission of, but the immersion in a particular thing. He sets the lines of a poem to music and works out new ways of playing a centuries-old musical instrument. Yet for all his joy in experimentation, his music oscillates between the intellectual earnestness of classical concert halls and the directness of pop music. Lukas Lauermann feels at home in both worlds. “If anyone asked me to define the music on this album,” he says, “my answer would be: barrier-free modern classical music.”
