Conference | Narrative in the Natural Sciences and Humanities


While all disciplines employ narrative in their work to summarize and communicate their theories, methods, and results, the realm of narrating (more colloquially known as storytelling) has traditionally been considered a literary or historical endeavor under the purview of the humanities and social sciences. This is no longer the case. As evidenced by the burgeoning fields of narrative medicine and science communication, narratives and narrating are also important tools for the natural sciences. Neuroscientists have even recently proposed that “narrative” may be a better way of theorizing about the processes by which the brain represents the context used to sort and order memories in order to create a timeline of events. In light of this development, the conference seeks to explore the following topics: -- What “narrative” means, and the role it plays, in the humanities, social sciences, journalism, law, the natural sciences, and medicine. -- Why humans create narratives–perspectives from anthropology to neuroscience. -- Narrating with “qualitative” and with “quantitative” data. -- Communicating to the public through narratives and storytelling.

Slide Lecture | Sticky Shedding: Exorcising Teenage Media


In the mid-1990s, speaker Kristen Gallerneaux attended Bealart, a full-time experimental public arts high school in London, Ontario, Canada. Founded in the late-1920s, the school promoted free expression and immersive self-motivated learning at the secondary school level - an environment that can be hellish for many. While a student, Gallerneaux specialized in analog film processes and made short pastoral horror movies. Forgotten in a basement box for over 20 years, these films and others were recently digitized and will be viewed for the first time during this talk, for better or worse. Other topics will touch on foundational influences linked to media histories: growing up a 1980s arcade, TV horror hosts, video diaries made in isolation, embracing the glitch, the exorcism of memories, and the anxiety of forgetting. Kristen Gallerneaux is a Detroit-based writer and sound-based artist. At The Henry Ford Museum she is curator of technology and keeper of objects such as experimental televisions, prototype synthesizers, prison radios, and hacking devices. Essays about the hidden soundscapes of these artefacts - combined with stories about growing up Spiritualist - form the backbone of her recent book, High Static, Dead Lines (MIT/ Strange Attractor Press).

Conference | Andy Warhol After Pop


Andy Warhol’s activities after 1968 have long been understood as less influential and less innovative than his work in the early 1960s. However, his wide-ranging production in the ‘70s and ‘80s reveals a period of great experimentation, in which the artist further explored the possibilities of painterly abstraction, media technologies, studio practices, mass cultural forms and phenomena, and underground subcultures. Now over thirty years since Warhol's death, his late artistic practice can be understood as far more diverse and multivalent than it appeared when he was alive. Yet, the work from this era has received less critical attention than that of the 1960s, and much of it remains little known. This symposium brings together scholars, curators, and artists to reassess Warhol’s activities in the period from 1968 until his death in 1987 in light of the exhibition Andy Warhol—From A to B and Back Again.

When the instruments are all of the same family the group is called a whole consort; when instruments belonging to more than one family are used together this is called a broken consort or a mixed consort.

Discussion | Invisible Targets: Women and Drugs in the Criminal Justice System


What’s at stake for women involved with drugs? The events will explore the inequalities women face in the criminal justice system as a result of their involvement in drug-related economies, their drug use, or their dependence on drugs. Women involved with drugs are routinely silenced by stigma. Due to current drug policies, these women face some of the harshest sentences for non-violent drug offenses. As a result their liberty and rights to health and well-being, as well as their reproductive and parental rights are jeopardized. Learn what’s at stake for women as the war on drugs continues to be waged and explore a question the prosecution often overlooks: why women become involved with drugs in the first place?

Opening Reception | To New York with Love: Remembering Jonas Mekas


Jonas Mekas (1922-2019) is today considered "the godfather of American avant-garde cinema." Mekas was born in 1922 in the farming village of Semeniškiai, Lithuania. In 1944, he and his brother Adolfas were taken by the Nazis to a forced labor camp in Elmshorn, Germany. After the War he studied philosophy at the University of Mainz. At the end of 1949 the UN Refugee Organization brought both brothers to New York City, where they settled down in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Two weeks after his arrival in New York, Jonas bought a Bolex camera and began to record brief moments of his life. He soon became deeply involved in the American Avant Garde film movement. He founded the Anthology Film Archives, on the Lower East Side, NYC, in 1969 with Jerome Hill, Adams Sitney, Peter Kubelka and Stan Brakhage.

Discussion | Expanding the Fogo Island Food Circle: Food, Community, and Economic Development


Following the success of Fogo Island’s first-ever community-wide food circle in July of 2018 and subsequent gatherings, Fogo Island comes to New York City to explore the foodways that have distinguished the Island’s traditional and contemporary cuisine, alongside the food systems that connect us all. Moderated by Mitchell Davis of the James Beard Foundation, acclaimed food writer Gabriella Gershenson will join Fogo Island Inn’s Executive Chef Jonathan Gushue and Innkeeper Zita Cobb for a food-centred discussion that will touch on themes of wholeness, community, and the most important things: nature and culture. As founder of the charity Shorefast, Cobb sought to revitalize a remote community on an island off the coast of an island off the coast of North America and in the process realized the power of food and hospitality. The panelists will seek to uncover the ways in which people from places both big and small have a role to play in refining our thinking around food in order to build stronger, positive relationships with the past, the planet, and one another.

Author Reading | Intellectual Philanthropy: The Seduction of the Masses


What's in a nineteenth-century philanthropist? Fear of an uprising. But the frightened philanthropist has a remedy. Aware that the urban surge of the working-class masses in Spain would create a state of emergency, he or she devises a means to seduce the masses away from rebellion by taking on himself or herself the role of the seducer: the capitalist intellectual hero invested in the caretaking of the unpredictable working class. Intellectual Philanthropy examines cultural practices used by philanthropists in modern Iberia. It explains the meaning and role of intellectual philanthropy by focusing on the devices and apparatuses philanthropists devised to realize their projects. Intellectual philanthropists considered themselves activists in that they aimed to impact social structures and deployed a rhetoric of the affect to convince the workers to join their philanthropic enterprise. Author Aurélie Vialette is an Assistant Professor at Stony Brook University. She specializes working-class culture, social movements, gender studies and prison reform. She has published her research in Spanish, English, Catalan and French.

Opening Reception | Pain Relief: Squelching Suffering


Joanne Ungar's solo exhibition features large-scale pigmented waxworks which embed evidence of current available methods to relieve physical or mental suffering. All the artwork in this show contains boxes for products that deliver pain relief, items for either numbing ourselves or for altering our reality. Among these items are alchohol, OTC medications, Rx medications, confections, cosmetics, and digital toys. These poured wax paintings are composed with the geometric forms of recycled packaging, and layered and infused with pigmented wax. Ungar's complex sense of color transforms base patterns through multiple luminous strata of graded hues, overlaid with controlled density to either obscure or reveal the accumulated layered color. Her luminous wax paintings are created with refined, purified beeswaxes and commercial grade paraffins with very high melting points, creating work that is archival and stable.
