Symposium | Scholars and Their Kin


A growing number of scholars are making their own relatives their object of study. These personal family histories mark a significant shift in scholarly practice and writing, with far-reaching methodological, political, and ethical implications. Scholars and Their Kin is one of the first symposia to bring together scholars who are presently writing in this vein or have recently done so. This conversation between U.S.-based and European historians, anthropologists, sociologists, and literary/cultural critics will address far-reaching questions. They include the family as an object of study, modes and forms of scholarly writing, the recovery of lost or forgotten histories (with special attention to race, religion, and gender), the study of emotions and intimacy, questions of scale, familial memory and transmission, as well as history and genealogy. Participants will also discuss the institutional frameworks in which, depending on their background, field, and stage in career, scholars are encouraged (or not) to write such histories.

Lecture | The Accidental Rise of the Modern Yiddish Theater


As the history books tell us, the modern Yiddish theater was founded in Iasi, Romania in 1876 by Avrom Goldfaden who drew on an energetic tradition of shtetl-bound folk performance.  Indeed, this narrative explains some of this cultural milestone. What other historical factors gave rise to the modern Yiddish theater? Who was Avrom Goldfaden? And why was a historical accident crucial to the Yiddish theater’s rise?    Speaker Alyssa Quint is the Senior Scholar at the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research.

Author Reading | Contesting the Classroom. Reimagining Education in Moroccan and Algerian Literatures


Erin Twohig's Contesting the Classroom is the first scholarly work to analyze both how Algerian and Moroccan novels depict the postcolonial classroom, and how postcolonial literatures are taught in Morocco and Algeria. Drawing on a corpus of contemporary novels in French and Arabic, it shows that authors imagined the fictional classroom as a pluralistic and inclusive space, often at odds with the narrow nationalist vision of postcolonial identity. Yet when authors wrote about the school, they also had to consider whether their work would be taught in schools.

Classical Music | Bach at Noon


The organ works of J.S. Bach (1685-1750) offered in 30-minute meditations. Johann Sebastian Bach was a German composer and musician of the Baroque period. He is known for instrumental compositions such as the Brandenburg Concertos and the Goldberg Variations as well as for vocal music such as the St. Matthew Passion and the Mass in B minor. Since the 19th-century Bach has been generally regarded as one of the greatest composers of all time. "The term 'baroque' has been widely used since the 19th century to describe the period in Western European art music from about 1600 to 1750... Many famous composers from the first part of the baroque period came from Italy and have a link with Venice, including Claudio Monteverdi and Antonio Vivaldi. Monteverdi was born in Cremona, but moved to Venice where he was 'maestro di capella' at the San Marco basilica. Vivaldi was born in Venice and was one of the greatest baroque composers. It is thanks to these strong musical traditions of Venice that we have today's music. Without Venetian church music and Monteverdi's advances with polyphony, the great traditions of choral music in England, France, and Germany would never have developed. Without the operas written by Monteverdi, Cavalli and Vivaldi, not only would the later styles of opera never have been invented. There would be no basis for the American Musical or the German and Viennese Operetta, the Spanish Zarzuela, and even rock, pop, and contemporary music as we know it." The Venice Insider Bach at Noon concerts take place every Tuesdays through Fridays, from September 10, 2019 to May 20, 2020.

Author Reading | From Internationalism to Cosmopolitanism: Literature and Cinema between the Second and Third World


Would there have been a Third World without the Second? Perhaps, but it would have looked very different. Although most histories of these geopolitical blocs and their constituent societies and cultures are written in reference to the West, the interdependence of the Second and Third Worlds is evident not only from a common nomenclature but also from their near-simultaneous disappearance around 1990. Professor Rossen Djagalov addresses this historical blind spot by recounting the story of two Cold War-era cultural formations that claimed to represent the Third World project in literature and cinema: the Afro-Asian Writers Association (1958-1991) and the Tashkent Festival for African, Asian, and Latin American Film (1968-1988).

An exhibition of new soft sculptures and bronzes by Sarah Lucas from her ongoing body of Bunnies, which she began making in 1997. Expanding her unique visual language of pantyhose, stuffing, and chairs, to include concrete, bronze, and steel, that Lucas has employed since her rise to international prominence in the mid-nineties, the works in this show demonstrate the artist’s powerful ability to transform utilitarian materials into conceptually complex objects that pose urgent questions about gender, sexuality, and identity.

Opening Reception | Rochelle Goldberg: Psychomachia


From the artist: "Is it the symbiotic relationship of the symbol to its witness that enables it to live forever? Where the Witness experiences the symbol as concrete, grounding the symbol's existence, and conducting its scatter? If scatter poses an obliterating threat to the symbol through its witness, the perceived threat is merely a collapse of understanding, considering they need each other to keep breathing."

Opening Reception | This Sacred Vessel (Pt. 2): Figurative Painting


After exploring how the relevance of landscape painting is informed by ecological anxiety in This Sacred Vessel (pt. 1), this new iteration turns to the long-established heritage of figurative painting. In a society overflown by images of bodies, the nine artists gathered in this exhibition toy with the codes of this canonical genre to present gender-bending, culturally ambiguous, comicotragic figures that disturb the normalizing images proliferated in popular culture. Under their skilled brushstrokes, these artists reconfigure the body as symbolic sites. Includes works by Shelley Adler, Eliza Griffiths, Marion Wagschal, Kim Dorland, Sarah Letowsky, Nadia Waheed, Bambou Gili, Walter Scott and Janet Werner.

Colloquium | Indigenous Land Acknowledgments and Cultural Patrimony


This panel will bring together 4-5 representatives from the local Indigenous community, activist groups, academia, museums, and other arts organizations to discuss the practice of land acknowledgments in the cultural sphere, Indigenous cultural patrimony and repatriation, and current social justice issues facing Indigenous communities. An Indigenous land or territorial acknowledgment is a statement that acknowledges the displacement of Indigenous peoples from their homeland and territory on which an institution is located. A land acknowledgment is both a sign of respect as well as recognition of the historical and ongoing displacement and dispossession of the many Indigenous peoples living across the United States and the Americas. In light of events such as Standing Rock and the Dakota Access Pipeline, and ongoing discussions of the repatriation of Indigenous cultural patrimony, it is crucial that cultural institutions harness their influence to voice support for Indigenous communities and spread awareness of these issues.

Performance | Already Dead. Feedback Loops of Despair: Performance Art


Polish performer and intermedia artist Kuba Falk describes the ideas behind his performance: "This performance is a mourning for loss. An action to embody something as abstract as issue of climate change. It is a lamentation. To acknowledge feelings of grief and despair. They need to be experienced in order to move on, to transform, heal, change - within spiritual frame." Falk studied in Krakow at the Intermedia Department of the Academy of Fine Arts; Stage Directing and Stage Acting at the Academy of Theatre Arts and Comparative Religion Studies at the Jagiellonian University. He creates body-based works built out of personal rituals and spiritual practice with strong presence of themes of healing through facing shadows and inconvenient truths of self delusion. His poetry, video and sound works are often incorporated into his performances creating complex actions.
