Talk | Do We Need Another Book on Taras Shevchenko? (online)


Given the pivotal position of Shevchenko in forging Ukrainian identity, it is important that his legacy as an artist (and first and foremost, as a poet) should not be the exclusive property of Shevchenko scholars and, worst of all, ideologues of different shapes and stripes. To turn a poet into an icon or a monument would have a very detrimental effect on anything he stands for, and on the whole Ukrainian national project. And that is why each generation of Ukrainians should have a fresh look at his life and his works. It is not only their right, it is their duty. And the basic questions they have to address are: Is he really a good poet? Does his life and work justify his status as a father figure of a modern nation? Does his writing still resonate with us?   With writer, translator, and literary critic Volodymyr Dibrova.

Lecture | Iconomic Wars: The Tension Over Artworks (online)


Terry Smith of the University of Pittsburgh and the European Graduate School will present Iconomic Wars. In a famous essay, Walter Benjamin remarked that art’s history might be seen as a “working out” of an internal tension between “the artwork’s cult value and its exhibition value.” In 1935, film was the art form triggering this tension. Today, the question of value is all the more potent in every way, culturally, economically, politically, spiritually. In our multi-mediated image economy and with tensions of all kinds in society rising exponentially, the question of the iconomy is crucial. What does this mean for artists, curators, and all of us in making sense of the world and what is to be done?

Discussion | The Caribbean Climate Crisis Experience: People, Biodiversity and Justice


A discussion on the impact of the climate crisis and extreme weather on the Caribbean. The climate crisis and increasing trends in extreme weather threaten infrastructure, human health and safety, social and cultural norms, and the environment in the Caribbean, broadly. The impacts are significant, span the entire region, and require urgent attention. With a reliance on fisheries, agriculture, and tourism, Caribbean economies are particularly vulnerable, and new trends towards mining are deepening the loss of remnant forests and wetlands that are vital regional carbon sinks. Join us for this discussion with three distinguished Caribbean women leaders who are championing research, activism, and academic scholarship central to understanding and confronting the challenges of the Caribbean’s experiences within the global climate crisis.

Lecture | Adelaide Ristori, the Italian Traveling Theater Diva (online)


With Laura Caparrotti. Adelaide Ristori (29 January 1822 – 9 October 1906) was the first real Italian Diva known and venerated worldwide. She was a producer, director, and actor, simultaneously saving many lives and helping the revolution. A celebrated Italian tragic actress, she was the daughter of strolling players. She first appeared on stage as a child, and by the age of fourteen was playing important parts. After her marriage in 1846 to the Marchese del Grillo (who died in 1861), she retired for a short time, but soon returned to the stage. In 1855, she took Paris by storm in the title role of Alfieri’s Myrrha. Furious partisanship was aroused by the appearance of a rival to the great Mademoiselle Rachel. Paris was divided into two camps of opinion with humble play-goers fighting at the gallery-doors over the merits of their respective favorite. The two famous women never actually met, but the French actress seems to have been convinced that Ristori had felt admiration and respect towards her. After appearing successfully in Madrid and London, Ristori made the first of four visits to the United States, where she was met with much applause, particularly in Giacometti’s Elizabeth, Queen of England. She eventually retired from professional life in 1885, and died in Rome at the age of eighty-four.

Book Discussion | The Philosophy of Parochialism by Radomir Konstantinović (online)


A discussion of the new translation of Radomir Konstantinović’s 1969 work. Translator Branislav Jakovljević (Stanford University) will be joined by discussant Branka Arsić (Columbia University) and moderators Aleksandar Bošković and Christopher Caes, ECEC co-directors. The Philosophy of Parochialism is Radomir Konstantinović’s (1928–2011) most celebrated and reviled book. First published in Belgrade in 1969, it attracted keen attention and controversy through its unsparing critique of Serbian and any other nationalism in Yugoslavia and beyond. The book was prophetic, seeming to anticipate not only the bloody disintegration of Yugoslavia in the 1990s, but also the totalitarian turn in politics across the globe in the first decades of the new century. With this translation, English-speaking audiences can at last discover one of the most original writers of eastern European late modernism, and gain an important and original perspective into contemporary politics and culture in the West and beyond. This is a book that seems to age in reverse, as its meanings become deeper and more universal with the passage of time.
