Film | Age of Illusions (1965): Hungarian Drama (online)


Jancsi and his engineering graduate friends embark on life after university with big plans. They get their first slap in the face when the company where they are hired puts them in different departments with different salaries. At first, they get along, sometimes they have a big idea that they start working on together, but then little by little the group falls apart: some become more and more entrenched in the hierarchy; some get married, and one of them gets leukaemia. Jancsi, for better or worse, flees into love and continues to search for his place. Director: István Szabó Stars: András Bálint, Ilona Béres, Judit Halász 95 min. In Hungarian with English subtitles

A unique feature of the collection is a vast, one-of-a-kind archive of original flat glass and pressed-glass "jewels" used by Tiffany Studios, which provides valuable insight into the development of the stained-glass movement in America at the turn of the twentieth century. Established in 1972, this art museum's permanent collection consists of around 10,000 items, over 6,000 of which are documents and objects related to the 1939 and 1964 World's Fairs, some of which are on long-term display.

Lecture | U.S. Feminisms in a Global Context (online)


Prof. Judy Tzu-Chun Wu of the University of California gives a talk that argues for the importance of globalizing the study of U.S. feminism. International events such as war and colonization as well as the transnational movement of people, ideas, and goods have shaped who becomes a feminist in the U.S. and their ideas about feminism. The interconnections between the global, national, and local will be analyzed by focusing on U.S. women's activism in relation to political citizenship, economic equality, and sexual liberation.

Lecture | “This Protest is Not Authorized”: Preventive Repression and Public Opinion in Electoral Autocracies (online)


While a large literature recognizes the importance of preventive repression for authoritarian stability, we know very little about its effects on public opinion. To gain traction on this question Professor Katerina Tertychnaya draws on evidence from unusually detailed data on unauthorized and authorized protest from Russia and an original survey experiment. She shows that when the authorities engage in preventive repression, such as when they deny protest authorizations, protesters’ ability to generate support is compromised. Katerina Tertytchnaya is Assistant Professor of Comparative Politics at University College London.

Lecture | Russia’s Rogue Rulers: Trials for Embezzlement and Corruption in Post-Reform Courts, 1866-1882 (online)


The most spectacular public trials in post-reform Russia were for non-violent crimes like fraud and embezzlement, which are typically committed by wealthy and privileged persons. Focusing on the case of Fedor Melnitskii, the treasurer of the Imperial Orphanage in Moscow, who was accused of stealing a suitcase with 17 pounds of cash, this paper examines the debates about personal character, political views, and family loyalties during the two trials of Melnitskii and his relatives, as well as the underlying inquiries into the qualities of Russia’s ruling classes, their loyalty and their competence to rule.

Screening | Dance on Film (online)


Choreographer Jean Butler curates selections from and speaks about the first-ever living archive of traditional Irish dance known as "Our Steps, Our Story: An Irish Dance Legacy Archive." This ever-expanding archive, initiated by Butler, Artistic Director of the not-for-profit Our Steps, began in 2018 through two groundbreaking and highly attended residencies at the Jerome Robbins Dance Division. The purpose of the residencies was to capture and reconstruct the endangered solo dance steps that come from An Coimisiún, the oldest and largest governing Irish dance organization in the world. Butler will curate key segments of the video archive and accompanying oral history collection that speak to unique aspects of the culture, many of which are not widely known. What is the history of the form of Irish dance? How is it passed on? Who were some of the key innovators who pushed the boundaries of tradition? What can dancers today learn about their dance history by dancing the steps of the past? And why are there so few resources on Irish dance? Butler will answer these questions and more, and there will be time for questions at the end of the hour.

Discussion | Narratives and Counternarratives: A Conversation on Climate Attitudes in the U.S. (online)


In the U.S., skepticism over climate science has been a movement that has sustained itself and become more ideological over three decades. But how is it changing, especially given the nature of post-truth politics, the January 6 revolt, COVID and the anti-vaxx movement, and other trends of our time? What is going on underneath the surface of surveys about climate science acceptance (or rejection)?  With Raul Lejano and Shondel Nero, co-authors of The Power of Narrative: Climate Skepticism and the Deconstruction of Science (Oxford University Press, 2020), and featured guest speaker, Anthony Leiserowitz of Yale University.

Lecture | Unworlding: An Aesthetics of Collapse (online)


World, in many of the major philosophical traditions of the last century, presumes a totality of things, a form of being that exists through the sorting of subjects from objects, objects from things and things from unseen forces. And while “world,” and “life” seem to offer vectors for utopian thinking (“another world is possible”), these totalizing concepts have also been predicated upon anti-blackness and from the elevation of the human above all other forms of life. Rather than holding out for new worlds, revitalized notions of life, or remade utopian dreams, this lecture begins with the premise that world-making as we currently conceive of it can only proceed by way of unworlding, world unmaking in which concepts such as the human, subject, object, animal, vegetative are tipped out of their hierarchical formations and disordered in meaning and in their relations to one another. The talk follows a series of aesthetic experiments from the 1970’s to the present that revel in collapse, destruction and ruination. With: Jack Halberstam is Director of the Institute for Research on Women, Gender and Sexuality; Professor of English and Comparative Literature, Columbia University.
