Conference | Antitrust Policy and Workers


A one-day conference examining the stakes of antitrust policy for workers. With rising economic inequality and pandemic pressures instigating a wave of worker organizing, we stand at a crossroads where policymakers must ask how they will rein in the power of corporations and concentrated wealth or face even greater immiseration and rebellion. While the Biden administration and antitrust regulators seek to include labor market concerns and workers rights in their evaluation of competition policy, major questions have emerged about what policies make antitrust enforcement “pro-worker.” This conference explores the false dichotomies between "workers" and "consumers" and what are policies that promote democratic market governance. Participants are challenged to articulate an antitrust agenda consistent with building a more inclusive economy. How should mergers be reviewed to ensure fair market functioning, not just lower prices? How must major corporations be held accountable for unfair methods of competition embodied in employment misclassification, fissuring of the workplace, and domination of small businesses? What role can the government play in devising new industrial governance structures that bring together capital and labor to negotiate fair terms of competition?

Symposium | Worst Case Scenario: Critical Junctures in Russia-Ukraine-West Relations


After the collapse of the Soviet Union, Russia and the West reached uneasy new security and economic arrangements that were intended to promote peace and free trade. Russia's 2022 invasion of Ukraine marks the collapse of these arrangements. This is a worst-case scenario - a deadly and costly war with global consequences involving multiple nuclear powers. It is now clear that the economic incentives built into the European security architecture are insufficient to resolve the conflict. How did we end up here? This symposium will bring together leading scholars from different fields in three panels to weigh in on critical mistakes that have led to the current situation. Topics of discussion will include NATO expansion, economic liberalization, energy relations, Ukrainian political development, EU security, US foreign policy, imperialism, and changing domestic ideologies.

Book Discussion | Solving Public Problems: How to Fix Our Government and Change Our World


Author Beth Noveck (Northeastern University) discusses her book, which serves as a practical guide to fix our government and change our world. The world has faced big problems and challenges in recent years: a global pandemic and its economic consequences, climate change, increasing inequality, technological disruption, conflict and war. Pew Research studies have found public trust in government near historic lows. Poor governance tends to promote skepticism about government, which in turns fuels unhappiness with elites, populism and extremism. What are the tools to solve the deepest problems of our democracy? What makes effective governance? Can citizens promote it and get involved?

Discussion | Africans in Space (online)


A panel discussion on Africa's role in a re-emerging global space race and its implications for the continent. Examine the continent’s role in emerging debates over territorial occupation of outer space by individual nation states, and to what extent it matters–socially, economically, and geopolitically–that Africa looks set to play a relatively diminished role in this sector. Elsabeth Tesfayohannes Tedros and Imraan Saloojee will be joining us to help understand both the origins of Africa's involvement in outer space initiatives and what its future in this sector might look like.  Although overall spending on space programmes across Africa has steadily increased, the continent lags significantly behind much of the rest of the world on investments in outer-space initiatives, and only one African (and no black African) has ever been to space. In the context of arguably more pressing challenges, should Africa care about a global space race? And how, if at all, does it fit into the continent’s broader development ambitions?

Discussion | Israel and Palestine Now and In the Future (online)


The world watches with alarm as the Israeli government considers drastic changes, which if enacted, will severely undermine its constitutional democracy. It witnesses as well, the increasing frustration and anger among Palestinians, with no solution in sight for resolving the ongoing conflict between Israel and Palestine. How can we explain this and what can be done? This is an important, and much-needed conversation between two world renowned scholars and peace activists, from the region - Israeli philosopher, Avishai Margalit and Palestinian philosopher, Sari Nusseibeh. The conversation will be moderated by Omri Boehm, an Israeli/American philosopher.

Film | The Big Sleep (1946) with Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall


Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall ignite the screen in this classic film noir adaptation of Raymond Chandler's steamy detective novel. When private investigator Philip Marlowe (Bogart) accepts the blackmail case of one of Los Angeles' wealthiest men, his probe leads deep into a web of lies, drugs, pornography and murder woven around his client's two beautiful daughters. But Marlowe's most startling discovery is his inexorable attraction to one of the sisters. Nobel Prize-winning author William Faulkner collaborated on the screenplay. Based on the novel by William Chandler. Director: Howard Hawks Cast: Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall, Martha Vickers, Dorothy Malone, John Ridgely Humphrey Bogart, nicknamed Bogie, was an American film and stage actor.

Workshop | The Creative Journey Workshop


For this introductory workshop, Robert Rabinovitz, Associate Professor of Design, will explore the intersection between four fundamental human frameworks: The Design Process, The 12 Archetypes, The 12 Stages of The Hero's Journey, and The 12 Steps of Recovery. These seemingly disparate concepts are intertwined, revealing patterns that may contribute in creating new, powerful, and transformative experiences. Through the exploration of these concepts, we'll gain a holistic understanding of how we might apply this knowledge to create experiences that inspire, heal, and transform the ways in which we live, interact, and collaborate. By the end of this workshop, you'll have a deeper understanding of these universal truths, how they overlap and may continue to be applied in your life and creative work.

Opening Reception | Jeronimo Elespe: Paintings, Drawings and Prints


A solo exhibition of new work by Madrid-based Spanish artist Jeronimo Elespe. The exhibition will include a suite of paintings on linen and aluminum, drawings, and prints. Celebrated for his hallucinatory, often miniaturist paintings and drawings made in small, dappled brushstrokes, the late Peter Schjeldahl enthused in The New Yorker that Elespe possesses "a brooding and delicate way with grays [that] evokes the austere, magical gravitas of Spanish classical painting--by Velazquez, even" and that his "layered, tiny, sensitive strokes build to monumental effect." An installation of works spanning a variety of media, materials, and substrates will illustrate the dialectic nature of Elespe's multidisciplinary practice. Paintings, drawings, and prints will be interspersed, highlighting the artist's interconnected, idiosyncratic, and layered approach to image-making. The display of varied media side by side is in line with many of the broader questions guiding Elespe's practice. Both explicitly and implicitly Elespe explores metaphorical horseshoes between seemingly opposing conceptual binaries. Dreams and memories are often the subjects of his work, depicting the intangible realm of the mind onto tangible art objects. The subjects displayed in each piece often slip between obscuring ethereal shrouds and visible corporeal forms.

Video | Morning Dew (2020): The Plight of Ethnic Koreans in Japan


From 1959 to 1984, more than ninety thousand Zainichi Koreans (ethnic Korean residents in Japan) were repatriated by the Japanese and North Korean government to North Korea, a program of deportation that was couched as a humanitarian effort but was driven by Cold War politics. The so-called “returnees,” convinced they were moving to a “paradise on earth,” faced a harsh reality in North Korea that compelled some of them to defect. Those “ex-returnees” now living again in Japan hide the fact that they defected from North Korea due to fear of ongoing discrimination within the Zainichi community and worries for their relatives who remain in North Korea. Stigmatized as having been “brainwashed” by the totalitarian North Korean government, they live an invisible existence in Japan. Soni Kum’s three-channel video Morning Dew (2020) takes its title from a popular 1980 protest song by Kim Min-Gi. Whether in the context of the artist’s having learned the song as a child in a Chongryon (North Korean) elementary school in Tokyo, or as part of the pro-democracy movement in South Korea in the 1980s, the song’s multiple interpretations parallel the juxtapositions of historic film footage and live-acted scenes that the artist compiled to evoke the complicated emotions and experiences of former “returnees.” Without showing any of her interviews, the artist references violent abuses of power during Japan’s colonization of Korea, World War II, and the Korean War, as well as North Korean political propaganda, unsettling images of destruction, sweepingly beautiful landscapes, and footage of present-day Tokyo. Each of the seven sections of Morning Dew begins with a quote drawn from various sources including Aeschylus, Albert Camus, historian Bruce Cumings, Vladimir Lenin, an “ex-returnee” informant, and a Lakota Elder. Followed by a discussion with the artist.

Book Discussion | Semiotics of Rape: Sexual Subjectivity and Violation in Rural India


In her book, Rupal Oza follows the social life of rape in rural northwest India to reveal how rape is not only a violation of the body, but a language through which a range of issues—including caste and gender hierarchies, control over land and labor, and the shape of justice—are contested. Rather than focus on the laws governing rape, Oza closely examines rape charges to show how the victims and survivors of rape reclaim their autonomy by refusing to see themselves as defined entirely by the act of violation. Oza also shows how rape cases become arenas where bureaucrats, village council members, caste communities, and the police debate women’s sexual subjectivities and how those varied understandings impact the status and reputations of individuals and groups. In this way, rape gains meaning beyond the level of the survivor and victim to create a social category. By tracing the shifting meanings of sexual violence and justice, Oza offers insights into the social significance of rape in India and beyond.

Discussion | A Conversation with Mark Eden Horowitz on The Letters of Oscar Hammerstein II


In 2022, Library of Congress Senior Specialist Mark Eden Horowitz's edited collection of the letters of Oscar Hammerstein II quickly sold out of its first few print runs and has already begun to reshape our understanding of this remarkable playwright and lyricist. In this conversation with Billy Rose Theatre Division Curator Doug Reside, Horowitz will discuss the process of curating his book and what he learned about Hammerstein in the process. Mark Eden Horowitz is a senior music specialist in the Music Division of the Library of Congress, where among the collections for which he's been archivist or co-archivist are the papers of Leonard Bernstein, Vernon Duke, Ella Fitzgerald, Oscar Hammerstein, Jerome Kern, Alan Jay Lerner, Frederick Loewe, Cole Porter, Richard Rodgers, and Vincent Youmans. Among the collections he's acquired for the Library are the papers of Howard Ashman, Adam Guettel, Marvin Hamlisch, Jonathan Larson, Arthur Laurents, Andrew Lippa, Hal Prince, Neil Simon, and Jeanine Tesori. He's the author of the award-winning book Sondheim on Music--described as "essential" in The New York Times--and for ten years was the contributing editor for The Sondheim Review. Horowitz taught the history of musical theater at Catholic and Georgetown universities, and has guest lectured at Harvard, Princeton, and Skidmore.

Lecture | A Violent Democracy: White Supremacy, Black Resistance, and the Transformation of American Politics


This is a pivotal moment in United States and social movement history. Anti-Black violence is on the rise but this is not a new phenomenon—it has long been a part of the US political system. But what can be done about it? And what is the role of citizens in resisting state violence and transforming the political landscape? In this lecture, Professor Megan Ming Francis argues that in order to look ahead—we first must look back at history.  Considering the long history of racial violence and protest politics may allow us to see how mass protest movements can light a way out of the present darkness.

Lecture | Echoes. Beyond the Opposition Between Appearance and Reality


Western metaphysics is based on the opposition between reality and appearance. This construction essentially rests on a visual model, or more exactly on some staging of what visual experience is. This talk questions the basis of this metaphysics by taking into account the reality of appearances and reflecting on their various uses, in particular artistic ones. This path will be taken in the first place by shifting the focus of philosophical analysis from visual to acoustic models. Thus, I will envisage a realism of echoes, as opposed to the metaphysics of shadows. Speaker Jocelyn Benoist is Professor at the university Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne, where he teaches Contemporary Philosophy, and currently a member of the 'Institut Universitaire de France'.

Under the code name “the Ayalon Institute,” a group of teenagers from the Hatzofim Aleph Scout movement and members of the Haganah built an underground munitions factory in 1947 that secretly manufactured and then smuggled ammunition needed during Israel’s War of Independence.

Book Discussion | An Evening with Writers


Featuring writers Rebecca Faulkner, Hanna Griff-Sleven, and Amy Stein-Milford. Listen to readings from and discussions regarding their most recent works, which focus on themes that resonate with memory, history, sanctuary, and place. About the Speakers In her debut collection of poetry, Permit Me to Write My Own Ending (2023), Rebecca Faulkner spans generations and timescapes – from gritty, defiant explorations of a London adolescence, to haunting poems detailing love and adulthood in the United States. Faulkner’s language and form dissects the emotional impact of historical trauma, navigating and sharply reframing nationality and memory, interiority, and history. Depictions of London during the Blitz and post-war Berlin sit alongside poems about motherhood and childhood. In this defiant debut collection, the act of writing boldly confronts a landscape dominated by patriarchal notions of the female, deftly redefining it with language and vivid imagery. In her autoethnographic memoir, Hanna Me/Hana Mi: Sketches of My Life in Japan, Hanna Griff-Sleven documents her three years of living in Okayama, Japan in the mid 1990s. While writing about her encounters in Japan, she reflects on what her experiences as a gaijin (outsider) taught her about herself and her new countrymen. In addition to her lyrical prose, Griff-Sleven collaborated with artist Ayla Erdener who rendered stunning watercolors that not only illustrate each story but allow the reader to see into the text. In her memoir, Stories of Tormented Men, Amy Stein-Milford, excavates discarded family documents and stories as a way of holding onto her father as he is fading from Alzheimer’s. But as she digs into her Orthodox Jewish roots, memories of her own intellectual and sexual explorations surface, and she discovers the story she is writing is not the one she had intended to tell. In haunting and humorous prose, Stein-Milford writes of the relics that we collect, the legacies we leave behind, and the new growth that comes out of loss.

Talk | Precarious Lives: Recent Developments in Italian Documentary Filmmaking


Drawing on considerations articulated in recent critical work on the documentary form, this talk provides a brief overview of the different modalities of non-fiction filmmaking that have emerged in Italy over the past dozen years in response to a rapidly changing demographic landscape and increasing economic disparities. Focusing on two case studies, it explores more specifically how the audibility and visibility of refugees, migrants and other precarious subjects are negotiated and performed on screen. While critiquing the intimate intrusions the respective films enact on their subjects, it also acknowledges the complex affective operations inherent in this process.

Workshop | Sound Healing for Grief (online)


Experience the power of sound healing as we calm our nervous system and ground the body with a sound bath and humming and toning exercises. In this experiential session we will explore the sound of our breath, our voice and the nurturing power of sound healing as we come together in deep relaxation to reconnect with ourselves. Event participants will learn and practice humming and toning exercises which calm the nervous system and ground the body. We will end with a sound bath where Boshko Boskovic of Let’s Heal NYC, will use the sound of his voice and a Shruti Box to support your grieving process. Sound Healing for grief is a group experience centering around the therapeutic abilities of sound based on the understanding that the law of vibration is one of the fundamental forces of the universe. Sound healing is the practice of intentionally creating waves of harmonic sound which envelop and surround the body. Whether actively participating in the creation of the sounds or acting as a passive receiver, sound healing has the soothing ability to repair aspects of ourselves that are out of alignment restoring us to harmony. Benefits include: releasing endorphins, stimulating deep breathing, increasing oxygen in the brain and blood flow. Boshko Boskovic is a Reiki Master and Sound Healing practitioner trained and certified in the Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki lineage and in sound healing from the Sound Healing Center in Sausalito, California.

The New York-based psychedelic-prog rock band King Buffalo is Sean McVay (vocals, guitar), Dan Reynolds (bass) and Scott Donaldson (drums). King Buffalo's breakout hits—"Orion," "Centurion," and the title track from their recently released album Regenerator—suggest influences ranging from krautrock to doom metal to southern blues hiding in plain sight amidst the heavy, trance-inducing grooves and powerful guitar licks. The prolific trio's fourth LP since 2020 is the culminating volume of their pandemic trilogy, written in response to being forced off the road by COVID. After years of festival touring with hard rock heavyweights like Clutch, The Sword, and Elder, this intimate showcase presents a little-seen quiet side of the group that Distorted Sound calls "expansive and thunderous."
