Conference | Re-imagining Ruralities: From Heartlands to Hinterlands


This two-day workshop brings together humanities scholars and social scientists to think about how the rural has been imagined and might be reimagined in the context of globalization. Often conceived – in idyllic and pastoral genres – as a realm offering a refuge from globalization and its driving forces, capitalism and (neo)colonialism – or, alternatively, as a realm about to lose its distinctiveness as it is swallowed up by planetary urbanization, how can we imagine ruralities – pluralized, historicized and thought across their materialities, epistemologies, and affectivities – otherwise? And, conversely, how might we imagine globalization as not only about urbanization but also about ruralization? To move away from the dominant binary through which rurality is thought – that of the country versus the city – we look to concepts like the heartland, the hinterland, the borderland, the commodity frontier, the plantation, the provincial, the peripheral, and the regional to reimagine ruralities as coextensive with not just the urban but also the suburban and the wilderness, but harboring distinct qualities, quandaries and potentialities.

Lecture | Indigenous Feminisms: Afghan and Iranian Women's Lives under the Theocratic State (online)


This seminar will provide participants with a deeper understanding of indigenous feminism and the forms of oppression, marginalization, and misrecognition that they are designed to oppose. Focusing on Indigenous women as well as members of sexual minorities, participants will examine the resources offered by intersectional and de-colonial feminist approaches as they are formulated and practiced in Iran and Afghanistan. Participants will also study various emerging indigenous social movements and explore ways of producing emancipatory knowledge in the service of decolonization and indigenous sovereignty. In each session, co-leaders will open a dialogue to identify, compare, and analyze the situation of Iranian and Afghan women under a patriarchal culture and the dominance of theocratic states. Finally, this seminar will investigate the capacity of civil society, public opinion, and social media to provoke and sustain social resistance in each context. First of 10 sessions.

Symposium | "The Picture Is Still Out There”: Reframing Black Presence in the Collections of Early American Art and Material Culture (online)


The two-day online symposium is organized in connection with the exhibition Unnamed Figures: Black Presence and Absence in the Early American North. Drawing inspiration from the research behind this exhibition, the symposium serves as a platform for a broader consideration of museum practices in relation to folk art, early American history, and issues of anti-Black racism. Art scholars, museum curators, and public historians – including exhibition co-curators Emelie Gevalt, RL Watson and Sadé Ayorinde as well as Janine Boldt, Alexandra Chan, Anne Strachan Cross, Gwendolyn DuBois Shaw, Michael Hartman, Elizabeth S. Humphrey, Tiffany Momon, Marc Howard Ross, Jennifer Van Horn and Jill Vaum Rothschild – are invited to gather, share, and discuss their efforts in celebrating and reframing the early contributions of African American individuals to the field of art. Talks will consider early material culture from global and historically marginalized perspectives, acknowledging gaps in history, knowledge, and care. This virtual symposium will also present new methods of preserving, acquiring, and exhibiting that address colonialist and racist ideologies while rethinking accountability, transparency, and language choices in interpretation. This will be a unique opportunity to approach the colonial past and its continuities in museums and public institutions.

Discussion | Jewish Women in Post-World War II Eastern and Central Europe (online)


Eleonore Lappin-Engel and Andrea Pető (Central European University) present new research. This long-overdue special issue of Nashim analyzes Jewish women’s history in post-World War II Eastern and Central Europe, a topic long overlooked by scholarly investigation, owing to overlapping circles of forgetting.  Addressing this gap in the scholarly literature is all the more timely in the context of the political turmoil occurring in many countries as this special issue goes to press. History can be inspirational: It can show how destroyed and disappearing communities, nationalized educational and cultural infrastructure, collaboration with secret services, betrayal, and loss can be told in different ways. All these horrors, loss, destruction, misery and trauma contributed to the formation in East Central and Central Europe of a reactive and negative Jewish identity. However, the 1980’s brought an important change in Jewish life not only in the former Communist states but also in Western oriented countries. A new generation of women worked towards Jewish renewal and a new appraisal of the Jewish women of the generations preceding them. By offering a pivotal gesture of creative elaboration of new histories of Jewish women in this vast region, we hope to participate in reclaiming the future and creating models of a proactive, positive Jewish identity.

Symposium | Queering State Power in Asian Diasporic World-Making


This symposium explores instances and histories of Asian diaspora that de-center the state queerly. Asian diasporic pasts and presents are inextricably linked to the infrastructural power of the state, evoking complex relations of Asian migrancy and sociality with the law, militarized border regimes, and the ongoing violence of state-led wars, colonial and imperial domination. The symposium asks how Asian diasporic art and scholarship betray and reimagine the state’s seemingly ubiquitous reach. We highlight minoritarian engagements of hospitality and rescue, migrancy and settlement, history and memory that exceed institutional binds and open up forms of intimacy, sociality, and knowing that relate (to) the state queerly.

Film | CANCELLED***We Are Zama Zama (2021): Toiling Away in South Africa's Gold Mines***CANCELLED


For over a hundred years, South Africa was the largest producer of the world's gold. More gold has been extracted from its reserves than from all the other mines in the world combined. Ever. This film is a portrait of migrants eking a living in the depths of South Africa's abandoned gold mines. Today, many of these mines are closing. New waves of migrants are entering into their abandoned but unsealed shafts, to scavenge for gold in the deep. The most daring of these informal miners are called 'zama zamas.' The phrase means to "keep on trying," but also "to gamble." Director: Rosalind Morris 74 min. Followed by a discussion with the director

Discussion | Crime and Violence in Venezuela


Crime rose in 21st-century Venezuela despite declining poverty and inequality. "The Paradox of Violence in Venezuela" reveals the complex factors behind this phenomenon, reshaping understanding of violence, poverty, and governance. Crime and violence soared in twenty-first-century Venezuela even as poverty and inequality decreased, contradicting the conventional wisdom that these are the underlying causes of violence. The Paradox of Violence in Venezuela explains the rise of violence under both Hugo Chávez and Nicolás Maduro—leftist presidents who made considerable investment in social programs and political inclusion. Contributors argue that violence arose not from the frustration of inequality, or the needs created by poverty, but rather from the interrelated factors of a particular type of revolutionary governance, extraordinary oil revenues, a reliance on militarized policing, and the persistence of concentrated disadvantage. These factors led to dramatic but unequal economic growth, massive institutional and social change, and dysfunctional criminal justice policies that destabilized illicit markets and social networks, leading to an increase in violent conflict resolution. The Paradox of Violence in Venezuela reorients thinking about violence and its relationship to poverty, inequality, and the state. \

Opening Reception | Frank Stella: Recent Sculpture


The eastbound lanes of the George Washington Bridge will be shut down next month for the transport of five monumental works by Frank Stella to Jeffrey Deitch’s SoHo gallery. They are among the most ambitious and most radical works being made by any artist today. They extend Stella’s forms even further into three dimensions. The works are not painted sculptures or relief paintings. They completely fuse painting and sculpture in a way that has never been achieved before. All but one of these works are being exhibited for the first time. Frank Stella said that one of the objectives of his recent artistic approach has been to “build a painting rather than painting a painting.” The new work is a realization of this ambition. Stella combines traditional artists’ techniques with high technology to create his new work. His monumental sculptures begin with computer models that are transformed into a series of small sculptural maquettes through 3-D printing. The artist refines these models in the studio and then sends them to fabricators in the Netherlands and Belgium where they are engineered and constructed using technology derived from shipbuilding. The sections are then shipped to Stella’s studio in the Hudson Valley where they are refined and painted with automotive paint. The exhibition features works from two series, Scarlatti Sonata Kirkpatrick from 2014, and Atlantic Salmon Rivers from 2021-23. The Scarlatti Sonata Kirkpatrick sculptures are created with high density foam covered in fiberglass. The Grand Cascapedia, inspired by the Canadian river known for salmon fishing, is made from aluminum. As in all of Stella’s work, the forms embody their materials. The materials inspire the forms.

Lecture | Un/Seen Together: Invention and Selection in Photography at the Morgan


The exhibition Seen Together is composed of previously unseen works acquired since the founding of the Department of Photography in 2012. In a richly illustrated lecture, curator Joel Smith examines decisions that have gone into building the Morgan’s youngest collection—and into choosing a relative handful of objects to tell the collection’s story. Curation, like photography, communicates through selection, elimination, and framing. A fuller picture of the evolving collection emerges from a glimpse of invisible choices made behind the scenes.

Film | Nocturnal Flaneuses (2023): Reclaiming Public Space


Three women document their nighttime strolls in Germany, reflecting on the magic of the night that lies within while addressing their fears and limitations. Shubhra enjoys peering into illuminated windows of jewelry stores at night and reflects on her upbringing in India, where venturing out alone at night was impossible. Felicia delves into the woods, outside the grasp of urban overstimulation, and talks about her experiences when people perceived her as a man. Nele embarks on nocturnal strolls, immersing herself in the vibrant atmosphere of nightlife, sometimes simply to escape insomnia. The documentary accompanies female flaneurs as they confidently explore traditionally male dominated spaces, inviting listeners to experience the night far away from restrictions. Followed by a reading of a newly commissioned work by Brooklyn-based poet Rachel Han. The screening will be followed by a conversation around a feminist reclamation of public space and artistic media practices questioning the limitations and potentials of (in)visibility with Sch?tz and Han.

Play | The Government Inspector: A Play About Politics and Greed in Imperial Russia


When the locals in a small town in Russia learn that an undercover government inspector is coming for a surprise visit, an unfortunate case of mistaken identity sends the village spiraling into a world of panic and greed. The Government Inspector is often said to be Nikolai Gogol’s masterpiece, a comedy of errors that provides clever commentary on the extensive political wrongdoing of Imperial Russia. When it opened, it caused an uproar in the Russian press. Eventually, Tsar Nicholas I had to intervene in order for the production to move forward. Since its premiere in the 1830s, The Government Inspector has been translated and adapted for many different productions. Written by Nikolai Gogol Directed by Jonathan Drahos

Concert | Guitar-Driven Indie Rock


Working in the guitar-driven, hook-heavy, introspective indie rock tradition of Third Eye Blind and Everclear, Hodera is fronted by the New Jersey singer-songwriter Matthew Smith. The band's 2017 LP First Things First featured two breakout multi-million-play hit songs with the folksy and heartfelt "Best Intentions" and the high-energy ballad "North Dakota." Following a COVID hiatus—and a side-trip for Smith into the art of creative woodworking—the band has reemerged freshly energized onto the tour scene with their newest release Dear Friend. It's an album that clearly reaffirms the pensive, melodic sound that brought Hodera into the public spotlight while showing Smith's continuous growth as a lyricist and performer. Hodera will celebrate ten years playing together with a full-length concert, performing hits and deep cuts from the group's first three albums, along with some lesser known gems from Smith's solo project, Bravely.

Meg, the audacious early play by Tony Award winner Paula Vogel, flips the script on Henry VIII and the Tudors. Daughter to the famous and beloved Sir Thomas More, Meg feels certain that she'll follow in his steps as a brilliant scholar, with village idiot Will Roper as her trophy husband. But, as family secrets begin to come to light, Meg is forced to question the scholar's life her father has set out for her. Will her father's love or her husband's devotion help her realize her dreams, or keep her from discovering herself? Vogel's comic and cutting feminist vision questions how we construct histories, and who we leave out of them. A student production.
