Book Club | Fyodor Dostoyevsky's The Gambler


The Gambler is a short novel about a young tutor in the employment of a formerly wealthy Russian general. The novella reflects Dostoevsky's own addiction to roulette, which was in more ways than one the inspiration for the book: Dostoevsky completed the novella under a strict deadline to pay off gambling debts. Fyodor Dostoevsky (1821-1881) was a Russian novelist, short story writer, essayist, journalist and philosopher. His literary works explore human psychology in the troubled political, social, and spiritual atmospheres of 19th-century Russia, and engage with a variety of philosophical and religious themes. His books have been translated into more than 170 languages. Please read the book before arriving at the book discussion.

Author Reading | Unruly Visions: The Aesthetic Practices of Queer Diaspora


Gayatri Gopinath’s book brings queer studies to bear on studies of diaspora and visuality, tracing the interrelation of affect, archive, region, and aesthetics through an examination of a wide range of contemporary queer visual culture. Spanning film, fine art, poetry, and photography, the book stages unexpected encounters between work by South Asian, Middle Eastern, African, Australian, and Latinx artists such as Tracey Moffatt, Chitra Ganesh, Akram Zaatari, and Allan deSouza. Unruly Visions shows how their art functions as regional queer archives that express alternative understandings of time, space, and relationality.

Discussion | Who Owns the Word: Journalism


In an age of plummeting wages and technological uncertainty, what is the future for the profession of writing? Novelist Richard Russo surveys authors, academics, and critics. Featuring: Richard Russo, novelist and Vice President, The Authors Guild Liesl Schillinger, critic and translator Will Slauter, Associate Professor at Université Paris Diderot  A recent Authors Guild study showed that full-time incomes for writers have dropped by 30 percent since 2009—from $25,000 to $17,500. While writers struggle to earn a living wage, tech-based platforms that drive demand for content siphon off a disproportionate share of profits as they create opportunities for authors. Yet writers and the work they produce are as vital to society as ever. Engaging writers from across disciplines and platforms—from journalists to screenwriters, novelists to publishers—this installment will examine the perils and possibilities for journalists in the digital age—and the role institutions and corporations can play in sustaining the freedoms of expression on which a democratic society rests.

Lecture | The Fate of Futurism in the USA


From the beginning of the movement, Futurist artists actively engaged in proselytizing and spreading their ideas beyond national borders. Despite this, F.T. Marinetti refused to let his artists participate in the first major exhibition of modern art organized in the USA in 1913, The Armory Show – an error in judgment with (art) historical consequences. A more attentive reinterpretation of Futurism and of its intrinsic traits – chiefly a desire to change the daily life of the masses and their political consequence – has yet to be accepted by international critics. Despite the transversality of today's artistic forms, cultural barriers still exist that impede a broader, more comprehensive study of the movement - something this talk will examine in the light of new methodological and museological models.

Book Club | Ken Kesey's One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest


Set in an Oregon psychiatric hospital, the narrative serves as a study of the institutional processes and the human mind as well as a critique of behaviorism and a celebration of humanistic principles. It was adapted into the Broadway (and later off-Broadway) play One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest by Dale Wasserman in 1963. Bo Goldman adapted the novel into a 1975 film directed by Miloš Forman, which won five Academy Awards. Time magazine included the novel in its "100 Best English-language Novels from 1923 to 2005" list. Ken Kesey (1935-2001) was an American novelist, essayist, and countercultural figure. He considered himself a link between the Beat Generation of the 1950s and the hippies of the 1960s.

Film | Trace of Stones (1966): Rarely Seen East German Film


Filmed in widescreen black-and-white, Trace of Stones is perhaps the best-known East German film in today’s Germany, a daring political statement presented in the form of an interpersonal drama, and a great cinematic document of social conflicts in East Germany at the time. On a construction site plagued by shortages and poor planning, two men from different worlds confront each other—the swaggering pragmatist who leads an elite crew of carpenters, and the obedient bureaucrat who represents the Party’s interests. They fall in love with the same woman, an engineer on her first big assignment. Directed by Frank Beyer. With Manfred Krug, Krystyna Stypułkowska, Eberhard Esche. 134 minutes. In German with English subtitles.

Play | A Midsummer Night's Dream: Classic Shakespeare Comedy Updated


This fall, a classic New York City block party becomes the enchanted setting where fairies work their mischief in Shakespeare’s beloved play. Acclaimed director Jenny Koons takes you to the royal wedding of Theseus and Hippolyta, where a celebratory play is being rehearsed. But the real drama is unfolding in the concrete jungle of fairy King Oberon. There, four young New Yorkers discover the course of true love runs anything but smooth, as supernatural sprites and the lovable Puck conspire to reveal what fools we mortals be, and draw us all into the collective dream of romance and merriment.

Play | Marisol: A War in Heaven


There’s a war in heaven, God is dying, and he’s taking the universe with him: this is the premise of José Rivera’s 1993 Obie-Award-winning play. The story of a young woman from the Bronx, Marisol is rich with the promise and the disappointments not only of life in New York, but of life itself—a life that, in the play at least, always seems to be mysteriously marked by the transcendent.

Concert | Asian-American Indie-Folk Duo


In this immersive, indie-folk concert, singer-songwriter Julian Saporiti and vocalist Erin Aoyama illuminate the Asian-American experience through song, storytelling, and imagery. Taking inspiration from interviews with World War II Japanese incarceration camp survivors, his own family’s history living through the Vietnam War, and many other stories of the Asian-American experience, Nashville-raised Saporiti has transformed his doctoral research at Brown University into folk songs to bring these stories to a broader audience. Alongside Aoyama, a fellow PhD student at Brown whose family was incarcerated at Heart Mountain, Wyoming—one of the 10 Japanese-American concentration camps—No-No Boy aims to shine a light on experiences that have remained largely hidden.
