Discussion | How Can Nature Fast-Track the Recovery of Our Planet?


Last year's UN report highlighted the urgent need to employ a range of measures to limit global warming, while meeting rising global energy demand. This could include the protection and restoration of natural ecosystems such as forests, grasslands and wetlands. Nature-based solutions aim to protect, transform or restore land allowing nature to absorb more CO2 emissions from the atmosphere. Between now and 2030, they could provide over a third of the climate mitigation needed to limit warming to below 2?C. Reaching that outcome is difficult, in part because the prospects for nature-based solutions are uncertain. A panel of experts will discuss the role of nature in tackling climate change. Panelists include: o Ruth DeFries, University Professor; Denning Family Professor of Sustainable Development in the Department of Ecology, Evolution and Environmental Biology o Dirk Forrister, CEO & President of the International Emissions Trading Association o Michelle Manion, Lead Economist at the World Resources Institute o Todd Stevens, Executive Director, Conservation Science and Solutions at the Wildlife Conservation Society o Maarten Wetselaar, Director, Integrated Gas and New Energies at Royal Dutch Shell o Jason Bordoff, Founding Director, Center on Global Energy Policy (moderator)

Film | Greetings from Free Forests (2019): A Refuge of Embedded Historical Memory


Drifting through the densely forested landscape of southern Slovenia, Greetings from Free Forests, like a lifting fog, reveals a refuge of embedded historical memory. The film travels alongside the testimonies of local hunters, foresters, cavers, and foragers among others--orbiting around an absence left by radical struggle after it has come to fruition and since faded. During WWII, this forest served as a sanctuary for the Partisan Liberation Front, who were resisting the Fascist occupation of Yugoslavia.

Author Reading | How Art Can Be Thought: A Handbook for Change

Like deSouza’s artworks, the book considers art as politicized culture and proposes decolonizing practices within the contemporary world. Reception to follow.

Lecture | Where Evil Leans Hard on Good: Italy's Migrant Detention Centers and Colonial Concentration Camps


A lecture by Stephanie Malia Hom presenting an excerpt from her new book Empire’s Mobius Strip: Historical Echoes in Italy’s Crisis of Migration and Detention. Italy’s current crisis of Mediterranean migration and detention has its roots in early twentieth century imperial ambitions. Empire’s Mobius Strip investigates how mobile populations were perceived to be major threats to Italian colonization, and how the state’s historical mechanisms of control have resurfaced, with greater force, in today’s refugee crisis. What is at stake in Empire’s Mobius Strip is a deeper understanding of the forces driving those who move by choice, like tourists, and those who are moved by force, like refugees. It shows how mobility forges lasting connections between colonial imperialism and neoliberal empire, and positions Italy as the critical site for the study of imperial formations in Europe and the Mediterranean.

Author Reading | Ecstasy and Terror: From the Greeks to Game of Thrones


“The role of the critic,” Daniel Mendelsohn writes, “is to mediate intelligently and stylishly between a work and its audience; to educate and edify in an engaging and, preferably, entertaining way.” His latest collection exemplifies the range, depth, and erudition that have made him “required reading for anyone interested in dissecting culture” (The Daily Beast). In Ecstasy and Terror, Mendelsohn once again casts an eye at literature, film, television, and the personal essay, filtering his insights through his training as a scholar of classical antiquity in illuminating and sometimes surprising ways.

Author Reading | Fat, Pretty, and Soon to be Old: A Makeover for Self and Society


Kimberly Dark’s new book explores what it means to look a certain way. Or rather, certain ways. Navigating her experience of being fat since childhood—as well as queer, white-privileged, a gender-conforming “girl with a pretty face,” active then disabled, and inevitably aging—Dark blends storytelling and social analysis to deftly coax readers into a deeper understanding of how appearance privilege (and stigma) function in everyday life and how the architecture of this social world constrains us.
