Forum | Veterans Day Transit of Mercury Presentation: The History and Mechanics of Transits


Only two planets transit the Sun, as viewed from Earth. For a few hundred years, people have been watching Mercury and Venus drift across the Sun's surface, and using these events to measure the Earth-Sun distance, a measurement on which many other astronomical calculations rely. In addition to some of the history of these observations and measurements, they'll take a close look at these alignments of Earth, Sun and, Mercury or Venus, to see why transits occur when they do, always during the same two months of the year. Schedule: 10:00 - 10:30 - Irene Pease, History and Mechanics of Transits 10:30 - 11:00 - "Kuiper Kat," Katherine Troche, Mercury and the MESSENGER Mission 11:00 - 11:30 - Stan Honda, Photographing the Transit of Mercury 11:30 - 12:00 - Micah Acinapura, A view of Mercury in OpenSpace 12:00 - 12:30 - Brian Levine, Solar Missions 12:30 - 1:00 - William Koster, Transiting Exoplanets

Author Reading | The Steppe Tradition in International Relations: Russians, Turks and European State Building 4000 BCE-2017 CE

Neumann counters Euro-centrism in the study of international relations by providing a full account of political organisation in the Eurasian steppe from the fourth millennium BCE up until the present day. Drawing on a wide range of archaeological and historical secondary sources, alongside social theory, they discuss the pre-history, history and effect of what they name the 'steppe tradition'.

Discussion | Mobilizing for the Climate Emergency: A French-American Discussion


Environmentalist and author Bill McKibben was among the first journalists to sound the alarm about the perils of climate change over 30 years ago, and he has continued to be a leading voice in raising awareness about climate disruption and a leader in launching an international climate movement as founder of 350.org. Marie Toussaint is a jurist and French member of the European Parliament in the Green Party and a founder of Notre affaire à tous, which has sued the French state for its inaction in the fight against global warming, and the affair mobilized 2 million people to sign an associated petition. They will reflect together on the roles policymakers, activists, journalists, and artists need to play alongside scientists in mobilizing people to care and amplifying the call to action.

Lecture | Earth Hunger: Global Integration and the Need for Strangers


This is the story of a great debate, one that has shaped our times: how humans came to deal with, to embrace and to resist, their dependence upon strangers once local worlds opened up into one interconnected and interdependent world. Interdependence has been the source of hopes and of horrors, of one-world dreaming and of unspeakable atrocities. In our day of climate change and Nation-Firsters, how we handle our fragile togetherness will shape the lives of generations to come. Earth Hunger reflects on this condition; by drawing on experiences and debates from the past, it explores pathways for the future. Speaker Jeremy Adelman is the Henry Charles Lea Professor of History at Princeton University has lived and worked in seven countries and four continents.

Author Reading | CBD!: A Parodic Parable


CBD has insinuated itself into every aspect of our lives, from body oil to pet food. The cannabis derivative cannabidiol is an omnipresent cure-all that has gone from being “voguish” to “a mainstream panacea,” as The New York Times recently noted. And it’s a particular favorite of the crowd endemic to Brooklyn, the Bay Area, and other similar urban environs. Now comes Amy Sohn’s parodic parable CBD!, written in the style of the beloved children’s book by William Steig. A unique work of humor and a puzzle book, it is packed with charming black-and-white illustrations by Eric Hanson—and for those of us who need it, there’s a solution key in the back. Though not appropriate for kids (except for really smart and transgressive ones), CBD! will delight CBD users, irreverent parents, ex-children, and anyone curious about or appalled by the wellness industry.

Book Club | Monday Night Reading Group: Sula


This month's title being discussed is Sula by Toni Morrison. Two girls who grow up to become women. Two friends who become something worse than enemies. In this brilliantly imagined novel, Toni Morrison tells the story of Nel Wright and Sula Peace, who meet as children in the small town of Medallion, Ohio. Their devotion is fierce enough to withstand bullies and the burden of a dreadful secret. It endures even after Nel has grown up to be a pillar of the black community and Sula has become a pariah. But their friendship ends in an unforgivable betrayal—or does it end? Terrifying, comic, ribald and tragic, Sula is a work that overflows with life.

Lecture | The Dialectic in Politics: Affirmation, Negation, and the Affirmative Part of the Negation


The classical theory of dialectics manifests the idea of contradiction between two terms. For instance, the historical dialectic is the development of the contradiction between a dominant class and a dominated (or exploited) class. But this vision ends up reducing the dialectical process to negation only, to what Hegel himself calls "the work of the negative." This is the view present today everywhere: we must "fight against" the established order. Speaker Alain Badiou will argue that, so conceived, the dialectic is always a dialectic of failure. For what counts ultimately is not pure negation, but what is affirmed from within the negation itself. Thus, as shown by the victories and failures in politics, there are not two terms, but three: the affirmation (the power of the enemy), the negation (the uprising and the struggle against this power) and what the negation contains of affirmation (the Idea of an entirely new affirmation).
