Lecture |
In 1964, in honor of the 150th anniversary of his birth, monuments to the nineteenth century Ukrainian poet Taras Shevchenko appeared in Moscow and Washington, D.C. While the statues portrayed the same historical figure, the political and ideological meanings attached to them were diametrically opposed. Nevertheless, both statues reinforced the idea that culture and historical memory mattered during the Cold War. This talk looks at these two statues in the context of the Cold War competition, situating them within a transnational argument about the fate of Ukrainian culture under Soviet rule. Speaker Markian Dobczansky is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Ukrainian Studies.

Lecture |
This talk re-examines the extent to which the struggle for a Palestinian state was a viable or futile effort for the Palestinian national movement and as a solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Do the notion of partition and the claim to a State constitute the only vehicles for any national group, be it Israelis or Palestinians, to have "the right to have rights," as Hannah Arendt argued? Can the quest for self-determination be protected otherwise, especially in view of present regional and International developments?

Projected benefits of data science and the paradigm of big data are incompatible with the regulation of information collection, according to the requirements of privacy. So goes a compelling and popular position that Dr. Helen Nissenbaum has labelled big data exceptionalism. This lecture will trace the debate between those who would forgo privacy in favor of use regulation and those who continue to assert the affirmative value of constraints on collection in the name of privacy.

In 1973, over the course of six landmark lectures at Harvard University, Leonard Bernstein masterfully tackled the enigmatic meaning of music and defined for a generation a new way to listen. He titled his epic series The Unanswered Question. 50 years later, the library presents a contemporary reaction and re-evaluation of Bernstein’s lectures, which were a part of Harvard's prestigious Norton Lectures Series.. Lecture excerpts that capture Bernstein’s theories about musical “linguistics” and music in the future will be tested against contemporary perspectives by living composers and performers that work with ICE (International Contemporary Ensemble). Live performances or archival recordings of new music will either affirm, challenge, or revise Bernstein’s claims. Featuring: Jacob Greenburg, Pianist and educator, ICE Rebekah Heller, Artistic Director, ICE Ellen Highstein, Director, Tanglewood Music Center Tania Leon, Composers Now, Artistic Director Elena Moon Park, Found Sound Nation

Over the last ten years, the use of “big data” and computational methods for the study of cultures, media and society has become very popular. Hundreds of thousands of papers were published in a number of new fields (computational social science, digital humanities, culturomics, cultural analytics).   But many fundamental challenges remain. For example, how can we explore patterns in content and aesthetics of user-generated visual media such as the billions of images and video shared on Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, VK and other platforms? How do we analyze massive cultural data without reducing them to “typical,” “popular” or “outliers”? When we augment our normal vision with computer vision in order to “see” global visual culture at scale, what do we gain and what do we lose?  Speaker Lev Manovich is a Professor of Computer Science at The Graduate Center, City University of New York, and founder and Director of the Cultural Analytics Lab.

Discussion |
Contemporary flamenco artists are questioning stereotypes that tie flamenco to the past and are seeking an interdisciplinary dialogue with artists and cultural workers of other genres. Politics have entered the expressive palette of many young flamenco artists, including influential guitarist Juan José Suarez "El Paquete" and stunning vocalist Naike Ponce, whose new album is a lyric elegy to women. These artists engage in a conversation with a panel of brilliant New York-based dance artists and scholars, including dancer-makers Margueritte Hemmings and Arielle Rosales and seminal tap historian Constance Valis Hill, about making work attentive to the roar of battle and the stories of love and community that shake and wake audiences to envision a future of different possibilities. This round table, curated and moderated by K. Meira Goldberg and the Foundation for Iberian Music, will explore some of the intricacies of these issues.

Director Kamal Hachkar goes in search of a community that has vanished. A Berber Muslim born in Tinghir, Morocco and raised in France, Hachkar would return to Tinghir every summer with his family, but it would be years before he discovered that the town once had a thriving Jewish community. What Hackhar discovers in conversations over old family photos and while listening to the stories of the Jews who left Tinghir - and the Muslims who remain - is a history of close co-operation between communities. 86 min. Followed by a talk with the director. Film in French, with English subtitles.

Fassbinder’s film does not merely take up the setting, characters, and plot of Theodor Fontane’s 1894 novel of the same name, it transposes the physical object of the novel itself into cinema. Black-and-white filmstock recalls the monochrome of the printed page. Page-length shots are interrupted at regular intervals by cuts that serve as page turns, scenes by whiteouts that demarcate chapters. Underscoring the film’s pronouncedly literary cinematography is Fassbinder's extensive usage of Fontane’s original prose for dialogue and narration. 135 min.
