Lecture | Marrying Sun Yat-senism and Turanism: Leveraging Ancestral Nationalism in Interwar Sino-Hungarian Cultural Diplomacy (online)


The collapse of the Qing and Habsburg empires in the 1910s enabled an unprecedented opportunity for interactions between China and the East-Central European countries. These successor states in both postimperial regions wanted to integrate into the world of international diplomacy as equal peers. In the interwar, treaties of commerce and amity were considered important milestones; however, unlike its post-Habsburg neighbor Austria and Czechoslovakia, Hungary never established formal ties with the Republic of China. Those Hungarians and Chinese wanting to promote such an accord used cultural diplomacy as a PR means to achieve their desired politico-economic end: consular representation of their expatriates, boosting trade and expanding the number of friendly countries through mutual diplomatic recognition. This talk introduces a case study of a rogue Kuomintang diplomat diving deep into a frustrated nationalist subculture in an attempt to recruit Japanese-leaning Hungary as an ally of China. Although He Zhenya ultimately failed to convince his government to exploit Hungary’s Turanist quasi-ideology of Eastern orientation, his involvement in the birth of Hungarian academic Sinology in the 1930s and his manifold activism in Budapest and Nanjing proved to be an important milestone for postimperial China’s first diplomatic entry in Central Europe. Speaker Mátyás Mervay is a Ph.D. Candidate who completed and will defend his dissertation in Spring 2024 at New York University’s History Department.

Discussion | Noted Jazz Saxophonist Discusses Black Aesthetics and Spiritual Practice


A conversation with Immanuel Wilkins, saxophonist and composer, who will present his work centered around 'the vessel'--a model that sits at the intersection of black aesthetics and spiritual practice, the two core pillars on which he builds his work. The subject of "the vessel" invites an interdisciplinary reading of Immanuel's practice and reflects his interests in cross-fading and blurring the lines between various arts practices. Immanuel Wilkins burst onto the musical scene in 2020 with the release of his Blue Note recording debut, Omega, featuring his longstanding quartet of Micah Thomas, Daryl Johns, and Kweku Sumbry, which The New York Times named the #1 Jazz Album of 2020. In 2022, he released his sophomore album on Blue Note, The 7th Hand.

He has had a long association with filmmaker Wes Anderson with whom he shared writing and acting credits for Bottle Rocket (1996), Rushmore (1998), and The Royal Tenenbaums (2001), the last of which earned him a nomination for the Academy Award and BAFTA Award for Best Screenplay.

Conference | Anti-Colonialism, Black Radicalism, and Transnational Feminism


This conference will explore transnational Black feminism in the context of “third world” liberatory movements since the 1940s. At the height of struggles for anti-colonial independence in the African subcontinent and diasporic communities during the 1960s and 1970s, the praxis of Black feminist alliances proved to be foundational to global anti-racist and anti-imperial radicalism. We aim to consider how Black feminist solidarity was forged across a broader geopolitical frame that includes the Indian, Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, strengthening local mobilizations and generating new transnational liberatory possibilities. We will also chronicle the evolution of transnational Black feminism since then, and how the shift from anti-colonialism to neoliberalism impacted the radical possibilities embedded in attempts at self-determination and collaboration across geographic divides.

Opening Reception | If Shadows Could Shine: Group Show


Shadows affirm presence in our world, the exhibition delves into traumas, histories, and memories that saturate the lives of marginalized communities, residing in a shadowless void. The three featured artists in this exhibition guide this artistic exploration, reimagining these removed and erased narratives to challenge the prevailing world order. Sa'dia Rehman attempts to construct a mobile mosque symbolizing climate devastation, tracing their family's displacement in 1974 from an area along the Indus River in Pakistan due to the construction of the Tarbela Dam. Dan Jian navigates the intersection of spaces and self-contemplation, blending dream-like recollections of Chinese cultural symbols to create landscapes filled with imagination and mystery, frozen in a shadowless, timeless liminal space. Nayeon Yang probes the impact of global capitalization on migrant labor exploitation within and beyond South Korea, problematizing the entangled relationships among nations, labor, capital, and the arts. In tracing family, cultural, and historical lineages, the artists assert value and disrupt hegemonic narratives, both materially and metaphorically. As we collectively unearth the elusive and obscure, If Shadows Could Shine beckons each of us to look closer into both the world at large and what lies immediately around us.

Talk | Ebony It Girls: Black Womens Fashion of the 1920s (in-person and online)


An "It Girl" is a woman who defines the fashion, culture, and beauty of an era. During the early twentieth century, popular Black stage and screen performers defined Black women as fashion symbols. From Josephine Baker's banana skirt to Florence Mills's perfectly shaped bob, the Black female performer embodied sensuality, elegance, and beauty despite widespread anti-Blackness that had stripped these women of their humanity only decades prior. Black female performers were propelled to the status of celebrity by way of prioritizing and valuing fashion and dress. This hybrid event will discuss the most notable performers of the 1920s and '30s who set out to define Black womanhood as assertive, beautiful, and sensual. Speaker Es-pranza Humphrey is a historian of Black studies and museum educator based out of New York.
