Human rights have fallen on hard times--yet rights are needed now more than ever. We stand at a crossroads between expansion and contraction of rights: new voices, spaces, and pathways contrast with declining democracies, deepening citizenship gap, and regression in the international regime. How can we secure a pragmatic future for rights based on evolving political practice? We will outline strategies for reclaiming rights in a post-liberal world.

Author Reading | Transforming Empire in Japan and East Asia: The Taiwan Expedition and the Birth of Japanese Imperialism


In the spring of 1874 the Japanese government sent an expedition to southern Taiwan ostensibly to punish indigenous villagers who had murdered dozens of people from Ryūkyū. Contemporary records show that the Japanese government also attempted to colonize eastern Taiwan and it justified its actions using the argument that a state must spread civilization and political authority to territories where it claimed sovereignty. The expedition took place in the context of the unequal treaty system in East Asia and during the contentious early years the Meiji period, and it shows how Japan’s new foreign policy stance in the 1870s combined elements taken from Western imperialism with revolutionary changes in Japan after the Meiji Restoration (1868). The new foreign policy stance spread the effects of the Restoration beyond Japan and accelerated the disruption of dynastic power in East Asia. Author Robert Eskildsen is a Senior Associate Professor in the Department of History at International Christian University, Tokyo.

Lecture | Moving Mountains and Liberating Dialogues: Creating a Black Feminist Archaeology


Whitney Battle-Baptiste describes the process of bringing together disciplines and modes of inquiry that are often at odds as one of “moving mountains and liberating dialogues.” Linking inquiries into her own identity and scholarship, Battle-Baptiste brings an intersectional approach by focusing African diaspora archaeology through the lens of black feminist theory. These intersectional approaches are vital to improving contemporary historical archaeology, and developing it as a practice necessary to broader quests for social and political justice.

Discussion | Say It Like You Mean It: On Translation, Communication, Languages


This event  explores the particular ways in which we use language -- dialects, registers of speaking, non-verbal speech -- in relation to the knowledge we produce for imagined publics, as well as its impacts and, ultimately, how we convey our ideas.  A group of artists who think profoundly about these issues will be joined by anthropologists and language specialists, as well as educators, art historians and Indigenous scholars to contend with myriad related questions including: Do we imagine a particular person or a group when we formulate speech? Is this choice conscious? What might this reveal about us? What does the actual language we use to communicate convey? Is it a native tongue or in translation? Does it take up the languages of theory, or of daily speech? What does a silent position mean? What role does the refusal to speak play in the right to free speech? The evening begins with "Brighter Than the Brightest Star I've Ever Seen," a special performance by Kite (Suzanne Kite), Oglala Lakota composer and performance and visual artist. It will be followed by a discussion among Kite, writer and art historian Aruna D'Souza, artist and educator Kameelah Janan Rasheed, anthropologist Stefania Pandolfo, Mojave poet, language activist, and educator Natalie Diaz, and Ross Perlin, Co-Director of the Endangered Language Alliance. Carin Kuoni and Laura Raicovich will moderate, and seminar participants will be asked to reflect on the readings provided as well as contribute to the discussion.

Author Reading | Two Writers Discuss Writing About Other Eras and Combining Fiction And History


Two authors, Lisa Gornick and Christina Baker Kline will discuss the pleasures and perils of writing about other eras, and their approaches to combining historical and fictional events and characters. Lisa Gornick’s novel The Peacock Feast spans the 20th century, ricocheting between the Tiffany mansions, Anna Freud’s office, a California commune, a Texas death row unit, and today’s Manhattan. An historical saga about love, class, and the past we never escape, it is described by Meg Wolitzer as "one of those rare books that feels both grand and intimate." Christina Baker Kline’s A Piece of the World was inspired by Andrew Wyeth’s mysterious and iconic painting, "Christina’s World." An atmospheric novel of friendship, passion, and art, it is described by Michael Chabon as "a graceful, moving and powerful demonstration of what can happen when a fearless literary imagination combines with an inexhaustible curiosity about the past and the human heart."

Book Club | Less: When the Answer Is Running Away


Andrew Sean Greer's novel asks: who says you can't run away from your problems? You are a failed novelist about to turn fifty. A wedding invitation arrives in the mail: your boyfriend of the past nine years is engaged to someone else. You can't say yes—it would be too awkward—and you can't say no—it would look like defeat. On your desk are a series of invitations to half-baked literary events around the world.

Author Reading | Novel Sounds: Southern Fiction in the Age of Rock and Roll


The 1950s witnessed both the birth of both rock and roll and the creation of Southern literature as we know it. Around the time that Chuck Berry and Elvis Presley put their electric spin on Southern vernacular ballads, a canonical group of white American authors native to rock's birthplace began to write fiction about the electrification of those ballads, translating into literary form key cultural changes that gave rise to the infectious music coming out of their region. Florence Dore tells the story of how these forms of expression became intertwined and shows how Southern writers turned to rock music and its technologies--tape, radio, vinyl--to develop the "rock novel."

Author Reading | Sleeping with Strangers: How the Movies Shaped Desire


Film can make us want things we can not have. But, while sometimes rapturous, the interaction of onscreen beauty and private desire speaks to a crisis in American culture, one that pits delusions of male supremacy against feminist awakening and the spirit of gay resistance. Combining criticism, his encyclopedic knowledge of film history, and memoir, David Thomson examines how film has found the fault lines in traditional masculinity and helped to point the way past it toward a more nuanced understanding of what it means to be a person desiring others. Ranging from advertising to pornography, Rudolph Valentino to Moonlight, Rock Hudson to Call Me By Your Name, Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant to Phantom Thread, Thomson shows us the art and the artists we love under a new light.

Opening Reception | Void: Repressed Jewish History in Austria


Void unites two photographers, Yvonne Oswald and Tatiana Lecomte, to draw attention to forgotten and repressed aspects of Jewish history in Austria. The exhibition juxtaposes Oswald’s photographs of deserted rooms of a former grand hotel in the Austrian Alps with Lecomte’s pictures of mounted birds from the collec­tions of the Natural History Museum in Vienna. By bringing together these different artistic positions, they prompt a discourse about commemoration, its representabil­ity and communica­tion.

Discussion | A Livable New York: The Future of Community Green Space and Affordable Housing


Little Italy's Elizabeth Street Garden is a community sculpture garden with over 100,000 visitors a year and year-round free public programs. Currently, the City and NYC Housing Preservation & Development plans to destroy the garden to develop affordable housing, office space, and luxury retail, despite a proposed alternative site for the planned development. These propositions have set up a false choice between the community's needs for public green space and affordable housing, and reflect crucial issues with City planning and the livability of New York. Community garden representatives, activists, and scholars explore access to public green space and the availability of affordable housing in a constantly changing city through the lens of Elizabeth Street Garden. The panel will be moderated by Kai Wright, a WNYC reporter and host of the podcast There Goes The Neighborhood.= Introductory remarks will be provided from Mia White, Assistant Professor of Environmental Studies, and Joseph Reiver, Executive Director of the Elizabeth Street Garden.
