Author Reading | William Marx discusses his book The Hatred of Literature


For the last 2,500 years literature has been attacked, booed, and condemned, often for the wrong reasons and occasionally for very good ones. The Hatred of Literature examines the evolving idea of literature as seen through the eyes of its adversaries: philosophers, theologians, scientists, pedagogues, and even leaders of modern liberal democracies.

To tackle these questions, Maria Abascal examines collective action across New York City neighborhoods that vary in terms of racial/ethnic and immigrant composition, socioeconomic resources, and residential stability. Maria Abascal is an assistant professor of sociology at Columbia University.

Lecture | Undoing the Future: Troubling Time/s, and Ecologies of Nothingness


In this lecture, honoring the advancement of women in science, Karen Barad investigates how the keys to quantum theory, namely the indeterminacy of time-being, can be used to unlock our understanding of social phenomena, such as colonialism, capitalism, militarism, racism, nationalism, and environmental destruction. How are such scourges of society entangled with nuclear and particle physics research? Barad takes up quantum physics’ immanent deconstructive dynamics, considers ways in which quantum physics troubles modernist conceptions of time, and asks whether quantum temporalities might offer radical new ways for cohabiting our planet more justly. Karen Barad is professor of feminist studies, philosophy, and history of consciousness at the University of California, Santa Cruz.

Author Reading | Patrice McMahon discusses her book The NGO Game: Post-Conflict Peacebuilding in the Balkans and Beyond


In most post-conflict countries nongovernmental organizations are everywhere, but their presence is misunderstood. In The NGO Game, Patrice McMahon investigates the unintended outcomes of what she calls the NGO boom in Bosnia and Kosovo. Using her years of fieldwork and interviews, McMahon argues that when international actors try to rebuild and reconstruct post-conflict countries, they often rely on and look to NGOs.

Lecture | Making Things Very Public: Artist Mischa Kuball


Mischa Kuball’s “public preposition” is a group of works, interventions, projects, and performances made over a period of several decades. What they have in common is that they appeal to a public sphere and implicitly question in what locations and under what circumstances what we mean by “public” is constituted and how it should be understood. Many of these interventions and projects were temporary in nature and only exist in photo documentation form. Mischa Kuball has been working in the public and institutional sphere since 1977. He uses light as a medium to explore architectural spaces as well as social and political discourses and reflects on a whole variety of aspects from sociocultural structures to architectural interventions as well as emphasizing or reinterpreting their monumental nature and context in architectural history. Public and private space merge into an indistinguishable whole in politically motivated participation projects, providing a platform for communication between the audience, the artist, the work itself and public space.

Staged Reading | The Letters: Love in Any Language


Henry studies dead languages. Rachel studies living languages. And Rajiv is the artist who lives with them both in a squat in Berlin, enmeshed in a post-collegiate tangle of friendship, love, and sex. 10 years later, Henry is gone, and the long engagement of Rajiv and Rachel is fraying. In the course of one day and over a series of competing memories, the characters must wrestle with the past and chart the future in a language they still have to create. Written by David Zellnick (pictured). Directed by Pam Berlin.
