Workshop | Exploring the Power of Mindfulness (online)


ERM Mindfulness is an online program designed with positive psychology insights and neuroscience research to help participants to experience the present moment with increased acceptance, nurturing curiosity and promoting collaboration. Our minds have a natural tendency to wander. Now with the challenges that come from increased time spent at home and away from in-person activities, we have an opportunity to develop a greater sense of wellbeing and interconnectedness by training our minds to become more aware and less judgmental. By cultivating awareness of emotions while reinforcing positive values and goals, students will have an opportunity to practice mindful listening and meditation in 3 sections: Clarity: focused attention and open monitoring guided meditations Compassion: active listening and self-compassion for collaboration Creativity: leadership communication and visualization With: Rajiah Williams Leong Thursdays, January 27-April 7, 2022

Author Reading | How to Be a Revolutionary: What We Owe Our Countries and Ourselves (online)


Connecting contemporary Shanghai, late Apartheid-era South Africa, and China during the Great Leap Forward and the Tiananmen uprising--and refracting this globe-trotting and time-traveling through Langston Hughes' confessional letters to a South African protege about the poet's time in Shanghai--C. A. Davids's novel is one of staggering ambition. It is also a heartbreaking exploration of what we owe our countries, our consciences, and ourselves.

Classical Music | Virtuosa: Women of the Baroque (in-person and online)


Women made their mark on Baroque music not only as muses, but also as virtuoso performers and composers. Mozart wrote his famous Sonata K454 for the Mantuan virtuosa Regina Strinasacchi, while Vivaldi composed most of his vast musical output for the incredibly talented women of the Ospedale della Pietà in Venice. None other than Casanova was smitten by cellist Henriette de Schnetzmann's impromptu rendition of a concerto by Antonio Vandini. And women such as Ana Bon, Élisabeth-Claude Jacquet de la Guerre and Barbara Strozzi were acclaimed performers of their own compositions. Infusion Baroque presents an all-female tour-de-force celebrating the talent and prowess of women musicians throughout the ages.

Lecture | Developmentalism and Informal Knowledge from Late Socialism Through the “Transition” (online)


In his celebrated work of historical anthropology, Bernard Cohn showed how British studies and systematization of Sanskrit language and Hindu law functioned as tools of imperial control by making society more legible. In this talk, Professor Artemy Kalinovsky will explore the inverse situation: what happens when formalized knowledge proves insufficient, and government officials turn to informal knowledge to govern territories and peoples they do not understand. Drawing on his research on the use of sociological inquiry to understand living standards in late-Soviet Central Asia, he will show how planners increasingly came to rely on informal observations made by researchers even as they developed new computational and survey techniques. The late Soviet understanding of Central Asian rural economies drew heavily on these informal observations, and also informed how international organizations approached the region after 1991. Artemy Kalinovsky is Professor of Russian, Soviet, and post-Soviet Studies at Temple University.

Discussion | Putin’s War on Ukraine: The Costs of Invasion (online)


In response to Putin’s invasion of Ukraine, the international community levied and implemented unprecedented sanctions against Russia, effectively cutting off a major economy from the global financial system. This is an expert panel to break down the intentions behind these sanctions, what impact they are likely to have on Russia, Putin, EU members, and what implications they have for wider international community. As sanctions increasingly become the coercive tool of choice for the US, the panel will help shed light on what these sanctions mean for the future of the war, and what the war can tell us about the future of economic statecraft.

Opening Reception | Karl Haendel: Praise New York: Realist Drawings


A group portrait of contemporary religious diversity and practice in New York City by artist Karl Haendel. The exhibition presents a series of large-scale, realist drawings depicting the hands of some of the city’s most inspiring Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu, Jewish, Christian, and Sikh faith leaders, paying homage to a diverse group of pastors, imams, rabbis and priests who have shared vital resources—from wisdom and hope to food and shelter—with thousands of New Yorkers in a time of pandemic, racial injustice, climate crisis, and civil unrest. Highlighting how these communities of believers are vibrant, welcoming, and tolerant, the artist hopes to provide space for viewers to reassess their own systems of belief, embrace complexity, and expand their acceptance.

Book Discussion | Tacky’s Revolt: The Story of an Atlantic Slave War (online)


In the second half of the eighteenth century, as European imperial conflicts extended the domain of capitalist agriculture, warring African factions fed their captives to the transatlantic slave trade while masters struggled continuously to keep their restive slaves under the yoke. In this contentious atmosphere, a movement of enslaved West Africans in Jamaica (then called Coromantees) organized to throw off that yoke by violence. Their uprising—which became known as Tacky’s Revolt—featured a style of fighting increasingly familiar today: scattered militias opposing great powers, with fighters hard to distinguish from noncombatants. With author Vincent Brown.

Book Discussion | Who's Black and Why?: A Hidden Chapter from the Eighteenth-Century Invention of Race (in-person and online)


In 1739 Bordeaux's Royal Academy of Sciences had announced their latest essay contest: explain the sources of "blackness." What is the physical cause of blackness and African hair, they asked, and what is the cause of Black degeneration? By the time answers were received two years later, more than four million Africans had been kidnapped and shipped across the Atlantic into a life of brutal enslavement in cities, farms, and plantations on the other side of the world. None of the contest submissions were ever published, until last year, in a new book edited by Henry Louis Gates, Jr. and Andrew S. Curran. The essays, written by a mix of naturalists, theologians, physicians, and amateurs, document the search for a "scientific" understanding of race. Together they provide an indispensable record of the Enlightenment-era thinking that normalized the sale and enslavement of Black human beings.
