Book Discussion | Yiddish Transformed: Reading Habits in the Russian Empire, 1860-1914 (online)


As significant economic, social, political, and cultural transformations swept the Jewish population of Tsarist Russia and Congress Poland between 1860 and 1914, the Yiddish language began to gain recognition as a central part of the Jewish cultural stage. This book examines the secular reading habits of East European Jews as the Jewish community began shifting to a modern society. Author Nathan Cohen explores Jewish reading practices alongside the rise of Yiddish by delving into publishing policies of Yiddish books and newspapers, popular literary genres of the time, the development of Jewish public libraries, as well as personal reflections of reading experiences.

Lecture | The Soviet Red Cross in the International Red Cross Movement during the Cold War (in-person and online)


Severyan Dyakonov will present his ongoing research project, focusing on the Soviet Red Cross’s engagement within the International Red Cross movement from the 1950s to the 1980s. During this period, representatives of the Soviet Red Cross assumed key roles in the governing bodies of the International League of the Red Cross, strategically aiming to challenge prevailing Western notions of humanitarianism and exert influence over the newly established Red Cross and Red Crescent societies in post-colonial regions. By the 1960s, a majority of Soviet doctors were women. When working abroad, the Soviet female doctors impersonated the achievements of Socialist Modernity. This project is based on archival data from the International Federation of the Red Cross archives in Geneva. Severyan Dyakonov is a specialist on Soviet foreign policy during the Cold War (PhD, the Geneva Graduate Institute, 2022). Swiss National Fund Postdoctoral Mobility Fellow, Visiting Scholar.

Book Discussion | The Lettered Indian: Race, Nation and Indigenous Education in Twentieth-Century Bolivia


Bringing into dialogue the fields of social history, Andean ethnography, and postcolonial theory, The Lettered Indian maps the moral dilemmas and political stakes involved in the protracted struggle over Indian literacy and schooling in the Bolivian Andes. Brooke Larson traces Bolivia’s major state efforts to educate its unruly Indigenous masses at key junctures in the twentieth century. While much scholarship has focused on “the Indian boarding school” and other Western schemes of racial assimilation, Larson interweaves state-centered and imperial episodes of Indigenous education reform with vivid ethnographies of Aymara peasant protagonists and their extraordinary pro-school initiatives.

Staged Reading | 5th Annual Evening of One-Acts


The three plays performed this evening as staged readings by seasoned actors mix the humorous and the poignant, the dramatic and the light-hearted. The short one-act play often has the longest effect on an audience, for what needs to be said, conveyed, and acted out must happen in a brief amount of time. This is an evening of new works by notable playwrights, featuring original pieces in which themes are conveyed that resonate well beyond the stage. The three plays performed this evening as staged readings by seasoned actors mix the humorous and the poignant, the dramatic and the light-hearted. Isn't that what life is all about? The theater relies on audiences, for they are as much a part of the realization of a play as anyone on stage.

Book Discussion | Ñai’ũpo Rape: A Dialogue of Ancestral Ethnoknowledge


Celeste Escobar introduces her 2023 book. This material constitutes a compendium of oral testimonies of the makers of ñai’ũpo (ceramic’s making) from three communities: Peguahó of Yaguarón in the department of Paraguarí, Caaguazú de Itá of the Central department and the San Rafael neighborhood of 21 de Julio de Tobatí of the Cordillera department of Paraguay. Following Sturtevant (1964) definition of the term ethno as a system of knowledge specific to a given culture and, in this case, a cultural context of the ancestral art craftmanship of ñai’ũpo (ceramics making) in Guaraní language (Tupí-Guaraní), the various cultural contexts can be considered different ethnos, in this case focused on specific groups dedicated to the trade (Ramalho 2011; 2012) mentioned in a set of ethno-knowledges. The ethno-knowledge accumulated over time is deeply impregnated and transmitted in the culture of native speakers and even more so if they have been socialized in the language in question since early childhood (Escobar 2021a).

Staged Reading | Nasty, Brutish, and Short: Whose Story Is It?


A white man writes a play about a Black family, submits it to a contest, it wins, and is now headed to Broadway. The problem is the contest was only for African Americans. So the white playwright invites a Black playwright over to ask him to take credit for it in order to see the production through. Who's story is it? Who has a right to tell it? Where does talent come from? Can empathy and a desire to do right transcend the racial biases that divide us? These are just some of the questions asked as the two playwrights confront who they are, what has shaped them, what they stand for, and what it means to do the right thing. Written by Ian McRae.

Talk | The Fabric of America Through the Art of Arthur Szyk (online)


Arthur Szyk loved three countries: Poland, the land of his birth; Israel, the land of his people; and America, the land of his ideals. Upon his immigration to the U.S. in 1940, he announced: “At last, I have found the home I have always searched for. Here I can speak of what my soul feels. There is no other place on earth that gives one the freedom, liberty, and justice that America does.” Despite his recognition by the press and military establishment as a citizen-soldier of the free world, Szyk was named as a subversive by the House Un-American Activities Committee in 1949. His response: he illuminated the Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights, and Four Freedoms Prayer. In this lecture, you will see a multi-sided America through the eyes of Arthur Szyk.
