Book Discussion | Reviving Classical Liberalism Against Populism: Fighting Deliberate Polarization


Nils Karlson discusses his book which explores the strategies used by left- and right-wing populists to make populism intelligible, recognizable, and contestable. It presents a synthesized explanatory model for how populists promote autocratization through the deliberate polarization of society. It traces the ideational roots of the core populist ideas and shows that these ideas form a collectivistic identity politics. Karlson argues that to fight back requires the revival of liberalism itself by defending and developing the liberal institutions, the liberal spirit, liberal narratives, and liberal statecraft.? The book also presents and discusses an extensive list of counterstrategies against populism.? Written within the tradition of political theory and institutional economics, this book uses a wide variety of sources, including results and analyses from social psychology, ethics, law, and history.

Book Discussion | The Jews of Summer: Summer Camp and Jewish Culture in Postwar America (online)


Remember the glorious days when your parents dropped you off at camp and you could reinvent yourself free of expectations, revel in your newfound independence and stay up all night whispering with your bunkmates? Or perhaps you didn’t experience this quintessentially Jewish rite of passage . . . but wish that you had. Fun, however, was not the intention of the founders of the Jewish camp movement. They were focused on helping immigrant children escape sweltering urban neighborhoods and, later, became obsessed with creating bulwarks against over-assimilation. Camps wound up providing a two-month bubble that was like a trip to Jewish Neverland almost accidentally. In her fascinating new book, Sandra Fox explores both the institution and the experience of camp, providing an unexpected window into the evolution of the American Jewish community.

Book Discussion | Seeking Bread and Fortune in Port Said: Labor Migration and the Making of the Suez Canal, 1859-1906 (online)


Lucia Carminati's book probes migrant labor's role in shaping the history of the Suez Canal and modern Egypt. It maps the everyday life of Port Said's residents between 1859, when the town was founded as the Suez Canal's northern harbor, and 1906, when a railway connected it to the rest of Egypt. Through groundbreaking research, Lucia Carminati provides a ground-level perspective on the key processes touching late nineteenth-century Egypt: heightened domestic mobility and immigration, intensified urbanization, changing urban governance, and growing foreign encroachment. By privileging migrants' prosaic lives, Seeking Bread and Fortune in Port Said shows how unevenness and inequality laid the groundwork for the Suez Canal's making.

Book Discussion | Our Others: Stories of Ukrainian Diversity (in-person and online)


In the book, Olesya Yaremchuk explores the histories and personal stories of fourteen ethnic minority groups living within the boundaries of present-day Ukraine. She traveled to many settlements, from the bustling cities of Donbas and Bukovyna to the quiet villages of Bessarabia and Zakarpattia, to document how ethnic minorities of Ukraine live today and what memories they keep about their past. Russia?s full-scale war is changing the ethnic landscape of Ukraine and the stories collected in the book become an archive of memory. Many members of national communities were forced to leave their homes. For instance, the Meskhetian Turks who lived near Bakhmut in Donetsk Oblast, the Greeks of Mariupol, or the Roma of Nova Kakhovka in Kherson Oblast.

Book Club | April in Spain by John Banville


Don’t disturb the dead… On the idyllic coast of San Sebastian, Spain, Dublin pathologist Quirke is struggling to relax, despite the beaches, cafés and the company of his disarmingly lovely wife. When he glimpses a familiar face in the twilight at Las Acadas bar, it’s hard at first to tell whether his imagination is just running away with him. Because this young woman can’t be April Latimer. She was murdered by her brother, years ago—the conclusion to an unspeakable scandal that shook one of Ireland’s foremost political dynasties. Unable to ignore his instincts, Quirke makes a call back home to Ireland and soon Detective St. John Strafford is dispatched to Spain. But he’s not the only one en route. A relentless hit man is on the hunt for his latest prey, and the next victim might be Quirke himself.

Opening Reception | Irina Danilova: The Alphabet Diet Project


Irina Danilova's The Alphabet Diet Project is an annual performance that began in 1996 within greater Project 59 when the artist, Irina Danilova, discovered that the Russian alphabet (33 letters) and English alphabet (26 letters) together comprised 59 letters. Since then, for 59 days in July and August, Irina Danilova has been eating food that begins with the same letter, first following the Russian alphabet and then – English. Each letter has a designated day. For example, August 4th is always an A-Day; August 9th is an F-day; August 17th is an N-day, and so on. In 2002 the Alphabet Project began to include meetings with people or visits to places with names that started with the corresponding letters. Several video documentaries were shot that year to record the change. In 2022 and 2023 instead of the Russian alphabet, Irina followed the Ukrainian alphabet, which has some different letters, but also 33 characters.

Performance | Payment of the Argentine Foreign Debt to Andy Warhol with Corn, The Latin American Gold


A special performance with the legendary Argentinian artist Marta Minujin, in conjunction with the exhibition Marta Minuj?n: Arte! Arte! Arte! The performance will be followed by a celebratory reception. In the original staging, created on a visit by the artist to New York in 1985, Marta Minujin invited her friend Andy Warhol to participate in a photo-performance in which she paid the pop icon, a symbol of American culture, with the Argentine foreign debt represented in gold-sprayed corn, claiming that the region had already covered its debt to the first world with the "invention" of corn, a staple that today feeds millions worldwide. The witty but nonetheless quite serious proposal directly addresses the commercial colonialism that the Global South is subjected to by world powers such as the United States. By pairing herself on an equal footing with Warhol, the most famous artist at the time, Minujiin also commented on the unequal trade of cultural capital in the art world. "Corn, the Latin American Gold" should balance these inequalities and put the world's regions on the same level, she claims.

Book Discussion | Work Flows: Stalinist Liquids in Russian Labor Culture


This thought-provoking book contends that the fascination with fluid channeling is deeply rooted in vertical power structures, whether embodied by the state in Stalin’s Soviet Union and present-day Russia or by corporate monopolies in the contemporary Anglo-American West. Originating in pre-revolutionary bio-utopianism, the Russian discourse on liquids and flow reached its zenith during Stalin’s First Five-Year Plan and resurfaced in post-Soviet “managed democracy” and Western neoliberalism. By unraveling the understudied theme of fluidity, Work Flows challenges historical boundaries, presenting Stalinism as a symptom of broader twentieth-century modernity. This is an engaging book discussion that explores the enduring legacy of flow in Russian labor culture, offering valuable insights into the dynamics of modernity.

Discussion | What Makes It Italian?: Marble I (online)


"What Makes It Italian?" is a music listening and discussion group. The encounter will focus on Marble (part 1): Composer Alessandro Melani (1639-1703) with sculptor Gian Lorenzo Bernini (1598 - 1680) Marble's suavity of surface chimes with smooth, legato musical surface. How can our understanding of italianita? in music be informed by Italian sculpture? The insubstantial nature of musical materials - mere vibrations that move through the air, imperceptible to sight and touch - creates in us a longing for an analog made of solid material. In sculpture we have just such an analog: run your hand across the carved wood; feel the heat radiating from the bronze; watch the light play off the marble surface. Find the substance of Italian music by exploring its relationship to the substance/s of sculpture, one medium at a time.

Lecture | Writer Roberto Bolaño in Context, 20 Years On


Few writers have been as deeply engaged with their times, in as wide a range of contexts, and as presciently, as Roberto Bolaño. In the two decades since his death in 2003, Bolaño has become one of world literature’s most influential, critically acclaimed, widely read authors. Set most extensively in Chile, Mexico, and Spain, the three principal locations of his life and work, his remarkably diverse writing moves freely and expansively among three continents, Europe and the Americas. An aspiring poet from his early years on whose much greater fame came as a novelist, Bolaño offers an exceptional portal for understanding the challenges literature was facing in the late twentieth and first few years of this century, challenges that have continued to grow and evolve ever since. Situating his work and legacy in relation to contemporary transnational, global, “planetary” contexts for literature, this talk will explore several recent, pivotal responses to those challenges.   A talk by Jonathan Beck Monroe (Cornell University).

Book Discussion | Louise Nevelson's Sculpture: Drag, Color, Join, Face (in-person and online)


In this radical rethinking of the art of Louise Nevelson (1899–1988), Julia Bryan-Wilson provides a long-overdue critical account of a signature figure in postwar sculpture. Nevelson, a Ukrainian-born Jewish immigrant, persevered in the male-dominated New York art world. Nonetheless, her careful procedures of construction—in which she assembled found pieces of wood into elaborate structures, usually painted black—have been little studied. Organized around a series of key operations in Nevelson’s own process (dragging, coloring, joining, and facing), the book comprises four slipcased, individually bound volumes that can be read in any order. Both form and content thus echo Nevelson’s own modular sculptures, the gridded boxes of which the artist herself rearranged. Exploring how Nevelson’s making relates to domesticity, racialized matter, gendered labor, and the environment, Bryan-Wilson offers a sustained examination of the social and political implications of Nevelson’s art. The author also approaches Nevelson’s sculptures from her own embodied subjectivity as a queer feminist scholar. She forges an expansive art history that places Nevelson’s assemblages in dialogue with a wide array of marginalized worldmaking and underlines the artist’s proclamation of allegiance to blackness.

Concert | in a dark blue night: Song Cycles Exploring Jewish immigrant New York City (online)


Celebrate the release of the follow-up to Alex Weiser's Pulitzer Prize nominated debut album and all the days were purple. A love letter to New York City, in a dark blue night features acclaimed singer Annie Rosen with a seven-piece chamber ensemble and comprises two song cycles that explore Jewish immigrant New York City. The first cycle, in a dark blue night, features five settings of Yiddish poetry written by newly arrived immigrants in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Coney Island Days follows and sets to music words from an oral history interview with Weiser's grandmother about childhood in the bilingual immigrant world of Coney Island in the 1930s and '40s. Musical performances from inside our recreated 1870s saloon will interweave songs from Weiser's album with Yiddish songs of the past that explore the Jewish immigrant experience. From a lullaby imagining America as heaven and a hymn to the Statue of Liberty to ballads of sweatshop labor and inequality, the musical selections will bring a diversity of experiences from the historic Jewish Lower East Side to life. The concert will feature introduction and historical commentary by Alex Weiser in conversation with Tenement Museum President Annie Polland, and musical performances by singer Annie Rosen and pianist Jason Wirth.

Talk | Artist Talk: A Litter of Monsters


Monsters, in fiction, represent human conditions veering on the edges of the abnormal. Whereas monsters may depict grotesqueness, deformation, or further forms of otherness, they also are parables to galvanize people into acting normally. In this lecture, we will look at a range of stories and architectural projects with these features. Some may call them characters, creatures, or caricatures - but this is a story about monsters, a chance for allegories. Artist Jimenez Lai was born in Taiwan, came of age in Canada, and lives in Los Angeles. Before establishing Bureau Spectacular, Lai lived in a desert shelter at Taliesin and resided in a shipping container at Atelier Van Lieshout on the piers of Rotterdam. Lai's first book, Citizens of No Place: An Architectural Graphic Novel, was published by Princeton Architectural Press with a grant from the Graham Foundation. Lai has won various awards, including the Architectural League Prize for Young Architects, the Debut Award at the Lisbon Triennale, and the Designer of the Future at Art Basel. Lai represented Taiwan at the 14th Venice Architecture Biennale. Lai's work is in the permanent collection of MoMA, SFMOMA, Art Institute of Chicago, and LACMA.

Discussion | The Story of Willa Cather (in-person and online)


The story of Willa Cather is defined by a lifetime of determination, struggle, and gradual emergence. Some show their full powers early, yet Cather was the opposite—she took her time and transformed herself by stages. The writer who leapt to the forefront of American letters with O Pioneers! (1913), The Song of the Lark (1915), and My Ántonia (1918) was already well into middle age. Through years of provincial journalism in Nebraska, brief spells of teaching, and editorial work on magazines, she persevered in pursuit of the ultimate goal—literary immortality. Unlike Hemingway, Faulkner, and Fitzgerald, her idealism was unironic, and she stood alone among the great modern authors—at odds with the fashionable attitudes of her time. Combining intricate analysis with an empathetic, lyrical voice, Benjamin Taylor uncovers the reality of Cather’s artistic development, from modest beginnings to the triumphs of her mature years. His book is simultaneously an homage to her character, a warm consideration of her work, and a call to read Cather with renewed vigor.

Book Discussion | Chasing Beauty: The Life of Isabella Stewart Gardner


Isabella Stewart Gardner’s singular art museum, with its plain exterior enfolding an astonishing four-story Italian palazzo, rose from Boston’s Fens at the turn of the twentieth century. Natalie Dykstra's book is a biography of the extraordinary Gilded Age socialite who founded the Gardner museum. Eccentric, intelligent, and original, she was misunderstood by Boston’s insular society and suffered the death of her only child. But in time came friendships, glittering and bohemian; world travels to Egypt and Syria; and collecting beautiful things. Henry James and John Singer Sargent—whose 1888 portrait of Gardner was a scandalous masterpiece—prized her friendship.
