Lecture | Defending the Nation: Soviet Writers’ Activism During Glasnost


During the Gorbachev era, “writer-activists” became key figures in the emerging world of Soviet politics. This talk will analyze the activism of Soviet writers around environmental and language issues during this crucial period in Soviet history. In 1985, Russian Village Prose writers’ public advocacy for environmental issues became the harbinger of Gorbachev’s new policy of glasnost’. Intellectuals in the non-Russian republics, emboldened by activism of Russian writers and galvanized by the 1986 nuclear disaster at Chernobyl, began to champion their own environmental causes. Events in the republics began to spiral out of control, however, when intellectuals also began advocating for cultural issues like the status of non-Russian languages. The national Writers’ Unions, founded in the Stalin era to channel national sentiment towards the Soviet state, became hotbeds of nationalist political organizing. This talk argues that writers’ Gorbachev-era activism hastened the collapse of the Soviet Union by delegitimizing Communist Party rule and presenting the nation as a morally superior alternative to the crumbling USSR. Speaker Erin Hutchinson is Assistant Professor of Russian History at the University of Colorado Boulder.

Lecture | Colonialism, Racism, and the Arab Israeli War of 1948 (online)


In 1947, a two-thirds majority of the members of the United Nations, an organization which took its name from the term for the Allies fighting against Nazi Germany, voted to establish an Arab, and a Jewish state on what had been British Mandate Palestine. Supporters of the Jewish state, and the Zionists themselves, viewed that project as an anti-colonial, anti-racist, and as a continuation of the anti-fascist passions of World War II. The Arab opponents, at the time and since, denounced the establishment of Israel as precisely the opposite, that is, an example of colonialism, racism, and in Soviet era propaganda even a form of Nazism. Historian Benny Morris has written extensively about the causes and nature of the war of 1948, and the controversies that have surrounded it ever since. Historian Jeffrey Herf has examined the international politics surrounding Israel's establishment. In conversation, Morris and Herf will explore these issues and the way they influence contemporary discussions.

Book Discussion | What the Taliban Told Me: A Soldier's Memoir


A memoir of a young Air Force linguist coming-of-age in a war that is lost. When Ian Fritz joined the Air Force at eighteen, he did so out of necessity. He hadn't been accepted into colleges thanks to an indifferent high school career. He'd too often slept through his classes as he worked long hours at a Chinese restaurant to help pay the bills for his trailer-dwelling family in Lake City, Florida. But the Air Force recognizes his potential and sends him to the elite Defense Language Institute in Monterey, California, to learn Dari and Pashto, the main languages of Afghanistan. By 2011, Fritz was an airborne cryptologic linguist and one of only a tiny number of people in the world trained to do this job on low-flying gunships. He monitors communications on the ground and determines in real time which Afghans are Taliban and which are innocent civilians. This eavesdropping is critical to supporting Special Forces units on the ground, but there is no training to counter the emotional complexity that develops as you listen to people's most intimate conversations over the course of two tours, Fritz listens to the Taliban for hundreds of hours, all over the country night and day, in moments of peace and in the middle of battle. What he hears teaches him about the people of Afghanistan--Taliban and otherwise--the war, and himself. Fritz's fluency is his greatest asset to the military, yet it becomes the greatest liability to his own commitment to the cause.

Discussion | The Future of U.S. Soft Power


Professor Michael F. Oppenheimer and Dr. Hendrik Ohnesorge from Bonn University have a discussion of how America’s supply of soft power is in decline, whether American soft power can be restored, and the consequences for the U.S. and international politics if the decline is permanent. Soft power, as defined by Professor Joseph Nye, is a state’s ability to generate support from other states through non-coercive means and has been considered by many to be central to America’s global leadership. There are now multiple indications that America’s supply of soft power is in steep decline, as our social and political performance deteriorates, and the world becomes at once more authoritarian and nationalistic, and more conflictual. Can American soft power be restored? If not, what are the consequences for the U.S. and international politics?

Lecture | Russian Opera Today


Unlike Tchaikovsky’s, Mussorgsky’s, and Rimsky-Korsakov’s operas, the contemporary Russophone opera remains relatively obscure for the world much like its American or French counterparts. This is unfortunate since a cohort of avant-garde composers have emerged in the post-Soviet years, and their compositions resonate more strongly with Western audiences, especially as many of them now reside in emigration. Nonetheless, Russian opera theaters continue to stage productions that offer a glimpse into contemporary musical expressions. Noteworthy examples include Desyatnikov’s Rozental’s Children, Shchedrin’s Lolita, Wustin’s Devil in Love, as well Alexander Zhurbin’s operatic adaptation of Sologub’s Petty Demon. All of these and other operas will be introduced by Zhurbin. This event will feature video presentations of these operas, accompanied by expert commentary from the composer. Alexander Zhurbin is one of the most important Russian composers of his generation. His music is widely performed all over the former Soviet Union, Europe, Canada and the United States. He composes in a wide range of forms and styles: from symphonies to pop music, from chamber music to “new wave,” from operas and ballets to movie scores and music for the theater.

Colloquium | Sexuality, Gender and Climate Vulnerability in the Caribbean


The Caribbean is extremely vulnerable and highly exposed to the adverse impacts of climate change and extreme weather events. Certain groups of people in the Caribbean are particularly exposed to these ever increasing vulnerabilities, because of institutionalized poverty; living in sub-standard housing, informal settlements, and/or disaster-prone areas; the lack of opportunity for them to earn a liveable wage; and their lack of autonomy to find relief from the consequences of extreme weather. These factors make women and the LGBTQ+ community particularly vulnerable and less able to adapt as they experience the climate crisis. This panel presents experiences, scholarship and innovations to confront and seek justice in the face of these circumstances. This is a panel discussion with Yemi Knight, (AnchorBridge Environmental Inc. - Barbados), Orisha Joseph, (Sustainable Grenadines Inc (SusGren).- Grenada) and Natalia M. Villarán-Quiñones (Out for sustainability - Puerto Rico).

Book Discussion | Portraits of Empires: Habsburg Albums from Ottoman Constantinople


In the late 16th century, hundreds of travelers made their way to the Habsburg ambassador's residence, known as the German House, in Constantinople. In this centrally located inn, subjects of the emperor found food, wine, shelter, and good company―and left an incredible collection of albums filled with images, messages, decorated papers, and more. Robyn Dora Radway's book offers a complete account of this early form of social media, which had a profound impact on later European iconography. Revealing a vibrant transimperial culture as viewed from all walks of life―Muslim and Christian, noble and servant, scholar and stable boy―the pocket-sized albums containing these curiosities have never been fully connected to the abundant archival records on the German House and its residents. Radway not only introduces these objects, the people who filled their pages, and the house at the center of their creation, but she also presents several arguments regarding chronologies of exchange, workshop practices, the curation of social networks and visual collections based on status, and the purposes of these highly individualized material portraits.

Writer Gina Chung discusses her new book, Green Frog, with fellow author Jinwoo Chong. Equal parts fantastical—a pair of talking dolls help twins escape a stifling home, a heart boils on the stove as part of an elaborate cure for melancholy, a fox demon contemplates avenging her sister's death—and true to life—a mother and daughter try to heal their rift when the daughter falls unexpectedly pregnant, a woman reexamines her father’s legacy after his death—the stories in this collection are hopeful and heartbreaking, full of danger and full of joy. Chung is a master at capturing emotion, and her characters—human and otherwise—will claw their way into your heart and make themselves at home.

Book Discussion | Memory Piece: A Novel of Friendship, Art, and Ambition


Lisa Ko offers a visionary novel of friendship, art, and ambition that asks: What is the value of a meaningful life? In the early 1980s, Giselle Chin, Jackie Ong, and Ellen Ng are three teenagers drawn together by their shared sense of alienation and desire for something different. “Allied in the weirdest parts of themselves,” they envision each other as artistic collaborators and embark on a future defined by freedom and creativity. By the time they are adults, their dreams are murkier. As a performance artist, Giselle must navigate an elite social world she never conceived of. As a coder thrilled by the internet’s early egalitarian promise, Jackie must contend with its more sinister shift toward monetization and surveillance. And as a community activist, Ellen confronts the increasing gentrification and policing overwhelming her New York City neighborhood. Over time their friendship matures and changes, their definitions of success become complicated, and their sense of what matters evolves. Moving from the predigital 1980s to the art and tech subcultures of the 1990s to a strikingly imagined portrait of the 2040s, Memory Piece is an innovative and audacious story of three lifelong friends as they strive to build satisfying lives in a world that turns out to be radically different from the one they were promised.
