Discussion | Women and Peacebuilding: Reflections from Northern Ireland, with Hillary Clinton (online)


Hear from experts on the vital roles of women in peacebuilding, through the lens of the N. Ireland Belfast/Good Friday Agreement. This event will reflect on the central role of women in the Northern Ireland Peace process in the negotiations leading to the Belfast/Good Friday Agreement--which brought 30 years of conflict in the region to an end--and in the 25 years since. The centrality of women to the Northern Ireland peace process, at all levels of society--politically, socially and culturally--is key to understanding how the Agreement was constructed and how its central principles of power sharing, equality, and mutual respect remain in place today. The internationalization of that role, powerfully expressed by leaders such as Secretary Clinton during the 1990s, and since consolidated by local political leaders, remind us that successful peace processes represent the diversity of the societies affected by conflict. This event, hosted by Secretary Hilary Rodham Clinton, Professor of International and Public Affairs at Columbia University and Chancellor of Queen's University Belfast, will spotlight those involved in negotiating the Agreement, those tasked with its implementation, and the new generation driving forward the dividends of peace. This seminar will also explore, through academic research, the global role of women in peacebuilding as we look to the future.

Book Discussion | Death, Domination, and State-Building: The US in Iraq and the Future of American Military Intervention (in-person and online)


The eminent scholar of conflict Roger D. Petersen provides the first comprehensive analytic history of post-invasion Iraq. Although the war is almost universally derided as one of the biggest foreign policy blunders of the post-Cold War era, Petersen argues that the course and conduct of the conflict is poorly understood. He begins by outlining an accessible framework for analyzing complex, fluid, and violent internal conflicts. He then applies that framework to a variety of diverse case studies to break down the strategic interplay among the US military forces and Shia and Sunni insurgent organizations as it played out in Baghdad, Anbar, and Hawija. Highlighting the struggle for dominance between Shia and Sunni in Baghdad, Petersen offers a reconsideration of the Surge. He also addresses failures of state-building in Iraqi Kurdistan. Critically, he shows how the legacy of the US occupation and presence from 2003-2011 shaped Iraq's political and security contours from 2011-2023.

Lecture | Bridging High-Level Goals and On-the-Ground Realities: The Case of Millets in Central India (online)


After many years of research and activism about the climate resilience and nutritional benefits of increasing diversity of the dominant rice-wheat system in India, attention on millets is now receiving policy attention at the highest levels of government. The opportunity is ripe for research to contribute to achieving these goals based on an understanding of the ground realities. The seminar will highlight the work in one geography in central India to try to bridge the gap. The Food for Humanity Initiative will discuss how it could have an impact on diversifying food systems in multiple places around the world. Speaker: Ruth De Fries, Columbia Climate School

Film | Joker (2019) with Joaquin Phoenix and Robert De Niro


Forever alone in a crowd, failed comedian Arthur Fleck seeks connection as he walks the streets of Gotham City. Arthur wears two masks — the one he paints for his day job as a clown, and the guise he projects in a futile attempt to feel like he's part of the world around him. Isolated, bullied, and disregarded by society, Fleck begins a slow descent into madness as he transforms into the criminal mastermind known as the Joker. Director: Todd Phillips Cast: Joaquin Phoenix, Robert De Niro, Zazie Beetz, Frances Conroy Joaquin Phoenix is an American actor. Known for playing dark and unconventional characters in independent films and period dramas, he has received various accolades, including an Academy Award, a British Academy Film Award, a Grammy Award, and two Golden Globe Awards. In 2020, The New York Times named him one of the greatest actors of the 21st century. Robert De Niro is an American actor. Known for his collaborations with Martin Scorsese, he is considered to be one of the best actors of his generation. De Niro earned two Academy Awards, one for Best Supporting Actor for his role as Vito Corleone in Francis Ford Coppola's The Godfather Part II (1974) and the other for Best Actor portraying Jake LaMotta in Scorsese's drama Raging Bull (1980). His other Oscar-nominated roles were for Taxi Driver (1976), The Deer Hunter (1978), Awakenings (1990), Cape Fear (1991), and Silver Linings Playbook (2012).

Discussion | What Jews Mean to America (online)


Jay Nordlinger in conversation with Rabbi Meir Soloveichik on his article titled "What Jews Mean to America." The explosions of antisemitism we have seen on U.S. campuses and in our streets since the October 7 attack in Israel aren't just another episode in the millennia-long story of the Jews. Soloveichik argues that this is a singular moment for Americans: Do they still see themselves as the Founders once did--as a covenantal nation, inspired by the Jewish biblical story?

Talk | Artist Talk: Where the Human0Made and Natural Worlds Meet (in-person and online)


Athena LaTocha (b. Anchorage, Alaska) is an artist whose massive works on paper explore the relationship between human-made and natural worlds, in the wake of Earthworks artists from the 1960s and 1970s. The artist incorporates materials such as ink, lead, earth and wood, while looking at correlations between mark-marking and displacement of materials made by industrial equipment and natural events. Her works are informed by her upbringing in the wilderness of Alaska. LaTocha's process is about being immersed in these environments, while responding to the storied and, at times, traumatic histories that are rooted in place. Her work has been shown across the country in places such as the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, Arkansas; IAIA Museum of Contemporary Native Arts in Santa Fe, New Mexico; MoMA P.S.1 in New York; New Orleans Museum of Art, New Orleans, Louisiana; and the International Gallery of Contemporary Art in Anchorage, Alaska. Currently, LaTocha has work on view at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC; Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond, Virginia; The Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn, New York; and the Weatherspoon Art Museum in Greensboro, North Carolina.

Staged Reading | Asilomar: Competition and Ethics in Scientific Discovery


In Dipika Guha's play set in 1975, a group of scientists gathers in Asilomar, California to discuss the safety and regulation of a cutting-edge new technology: genetic engineering. Decades later, gifted scientist Dr. Annie Roy devotes herself to this field of study, facing breakneck competition towards a discovery with nuclear implications for the human species. Asilomar is a thrilling new play about the culture of competition in science, the ethics that accompany scientific discovery, and the implications of gene editing technology in our quest for advancement.

Lecture | Creating Jobs Out of the Green: The Employment Effects of the Energy Transition


A rapid transition towards renewable energy sources is crucial to substantially reduce global emissions, which are the primary drivers of climate change. However, as new industries emerge and old ones decline, the decarbonisation of the energy sector is bound to have economy-wide implications.  Most importantly, the acceptability of this transition often faces resistance due to concerns about potential job-losses in the fossil-intensive sectors, while the employment potential of green energy technologies remains unclear.  To address this matter, we employ a novel geolocalized dataset of energy power units across four technologies and three decades, to examine the employment impacts of renewable energy deployment in four large European countries. Our findings suggest that renewable energy investments can serve as in important source of local stimulus and have the potential to reshape regional economies, especially in rural areas.

Iryna Tsilyk will read some of her poems as well as excerpts from her essays, and talk about the life of Ukrainians—and, in particular, Ukrainian artists—in a time of war. Many of them are fighting, others have become medics and volunteers, while hundreds have already been killed. Does art have any power in times of war? What tools can artists use? What does Ukrainian culture tell us today about the past, present and future of Ukraine? These issues and other will be focused on during the event’s discussion and Q&A.

Book Discussion | Candy Darling: Dreamer, Icon, Superstar


From the acclaimed biographer Cynthia Carr, the first full portrait of the queer icon and Warhol superstar Candy Darling.   Warhol superstar and transgender icon Candy Darling was glamour personified, but she was without a real place in the world. Growing up on Long Island, lonely and quiet and queer, she was enchanted by Hollywood starlets like Kim Novak. She found her turn in New York's early Off-Off-Broadway theater scene, in Warhol's films Flesh and Women in Revolt, and at the famed nightclub Max's Kansas City. She inspired songs by Lou Reed and the Rolling Stones. She became friends with Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin, borrowed a dress from Lauren Hutton, posed for Richard Avedon, and performed alongside Tennessee Williams in his own play. Yet Candy lived on the edge, relying on the kindness of strangers, friends, and her quietly devoted mother, sleeping on couches and in cheap hotel rooms, keeping a part of herself hidden. She wanted to be a star, but mostly she wanted to be loved. Her last diary entry was: "I shall try to be grateful for life . . . Cannot imagine who would want me." Candy died at twenty-nine in 1974, as conversations about gender and identity were really just starting. She never knew it, but she changed the world. Packed with tales of luminaries and gossip and meticulous research, immersive and laced with Candy's words and her friends' recollections, Cynthia Carr's Candy Darling is Candy's long-overdue return to the spotlight.

Book Discussion | Offshore Attachments: Oil and Intimacy in the Caribbean


Offshore Attachments reveals how the contested management of sex and race transformed the Caribbean into a crucial site in the global oil economy. By the mid-twentieth century, the Dutch islands of Curaçao and Aruba housed the world’s largest oil refineries. To bolster this massive industrial experiment, oil corporations and political authorities offshored intimacy, circumventing laws regulating sex, reproduction, and the family in a bid to maximize profits and turn Caribbean subjects into citizens. Historian Chelsea Schields demonstrates how Caribbean people both embraced and challenged efforts to alter intimate behavior in service to the energy economy. Moving from Caribbean oil towns to European metropolises and examining such issues as sex work, contraception, kinship, and the constitution of desire, Schields narrates a surprising story of how racialized concern with sex shaped hydrocarbon industries as the age of oil met the end of empire.

Discussion | Legendary Choreographer Mark Morris Discusses The Relationship Between Music and Dance


A discussion between choreographer Mark Morris and pianist, composer, and writer Ethan Iverson on the relationship between music and dance. The New York Times has called Mark Morris "the most successful and influential choreographer alive, and indisputably the most musical." He is not only the Artistic Director of the Mark Morris Dance Group, but he also conducts orchestras, directs opera, and choreographs for ballet companies. Morris' memoir, Out Loud, was published by Penguin Press in October 2021. Ethan Iverson is a founding member of The Bad Plus, a collective with Reid Anderson and David King performing in venues as diverse as Carnegie Hall and Bonnaroo and collaborating with Joshua Redman, Bill Frisell, and the Mark Morris Dance Group. Since leaving TBP Iverson has co-curated a centennial celebration of Thelonious Monk at Duke University and premiered the evening-length works The Look of Love and Pepperland with the Mark Morris Dance Group.

Book Discussion | 2 New Books from Writer Therese Svoboda


A reading and conversation with Terese Svoboda to celebrate the release of her two newest books, Roxy and Coco and The Long Swim: Stories. Helen Benedict will join in conversation.  About Roxy and Coco: Sisters Roxy and Coco are two glamorous harpies—mythical bird women—attempting to outrun extinction and fix the planet by preventing child abuse, one child at a time. When Roxy is suddenly attracted to her human supervisor at a social work agency a hundred years too early, Coco is very suspicious. Luring Roxy with his scent, Tim is also on the payroll of a fake conservationist intent on her less-than-legal collection. Coco swoops in to vet Tim, but Interpol is hot on her trail for a series of curious homicides. (Surveillance has a very hard time convincing his boss of what he’s monitoring.) When the sisters find themselves trapped, Chris, a bipolar skateboarding truant, tries his best to rescue them but it’s Stewie, Coco’s colleague, who turns the story inside out. Roxy and Coco climaxes at a gala of egg fanciers who scramble to escape the harpies’ talons. Action figure–worthy, for readers of Neil Gaiman and Karen Russell, this modern take on these fabled women touches on mental illness, racism, animal rights, and the rights of children. About The Long Swim: Stories: A runaway circus lion haunts a small town where two lovers risk more than their respective marriages. A junket to Cuba and an ambassador’s dalliance with a niece hide dark secrets and political revolution. “I’ve always had a knife,” says the unstable stepson to his parents. Inventive, dark, and absurd, the stories in The Long Swim capture Terese Svoboda’s clear-eyed, wry angle on the world: a place of violence and uncertainty but also wild beauty, adventure, and love both lasting and ephemeral. Her characters strive for escape—through romance, travel, or more self-destructive pursuits—and collide with the constraints of family and home, their longing for freedom and autonomy often at odds with the desire for safety and harmony. Cynical, irreverent, and formally daring, Svoboda’s stories are a deft exploration of womanhood and humanity. Waves of provocation and wonder toss the reader and leave them wanting more.

Discussion | Building Babel: Storytelling Across Languages, Media, and Genres (online)


A conversation with R. F. Kuang, the  bestselling author of the Poppy War trilogy and Babel: An Arcane History. In Babel, a dark academia fantasy novel set in the 1830s, Kuang grapples with student revolutions, colonial resistance, and how “translation and the acquisition of knowledge about various languages served as a tool of empire” (The New York Times). The novel traverses London, Oxford, and Canton, examining how translation changes meaning and language shapes identity. This event will be a wide-ranging discussion about storytelling across languages, media, and genres.
