Conference | Ukraine in North America: Diaspora Activism, Academic Initiatives (in-person and online)


The international conference will gather scholars from the United States, Canada, and Ukraine to focus on different waves of immigration from Ukraine to North America and on the organizational and political activity of these individuals, chiefly their establishment of Ukrainian studies in their new homelands. Having helped incorporate Ukraine as a subject of discussion at academic institutions in the U.S. and Canada, the diaspora has now itself become the subject of scholarly analysis in contemporary Ukraine. Among the topics to be examined during the conference: new approaches in defining the Ukrainian diaspora; the political engagement of the diaspora during the twentieth century and today; the role of libraries and archives in the establishment of Ukrainian studies institutions in North America; and various avenues of study of the Ukrainian diaspora in today's Ukraine.

Conference | Ottoman Algiers Beyond 1830


In 1830, French troops conquered Ottoman Algiers. In the following 130 years, the occupation –and subsequent annexation– of Algeria became perhaps the most significant example of European colonialism. Abdelkader’s anticolonial resistance, the development of the French mission civilisatrice and the extensive infrastructure surrounding it, the rise of the F.L.N. and the Algerian war of independence, to name but a few examples, all became well-documented, well-studied episodes in modern colonialism’s most emblematic story. What does this all-colonial telling of Algeria’s modern history obscure? This workshop seeks to address this question by considering the history of the conquest from the point of view of the conquered: the Ottoman province of Algiers. That the Algiers of 1830 had been a province of the Ottoman Empire for over three centuries has been largely ignored by historians of modern Algeria. The speakers of this workshop take as a point of departure the idea that Algeria’s colonial history cannot be understood without considering its profound Ottoman entanglements. Looking beyond 1830, they trace the deep continuities that tied colonial Algeria to its “precolonial” past and reveal the myriad ways Algiers remained Ottoman well after the French conquest. They explore several themes, including the discursive invention of ‘1830’ and the construction of the precolonial/colonial opposition; local petitions as sites of negotiation for old and new imperial identities; as well as mapping, archive-making, and other technologies of appropriation and re-signification of Algiers’ Ottoman past.

Lecture | Guns, Germs, and Stealing a Continent (online)


This presentation by Mike Goyette of Eckerd College will examine the Renaissance Italian polymath Girolamo Fracastoro’s three-book Latin epic Syphilis, Sive Morbus Gallicus (1530), which theorizes about the origins, transmission, progression, and treatment of syphilis. Written shortly after the time the disease became known to Europeans, this dactylic hexameter poem also contains what may be the earliest representation in European poetry of Indigenous Peoples of the Americas.

Opening Reception | Flora Fantastic: Eco-Critical Contemporary Botanical Art (in-person and online)


The nature of plants can be two-sided, as the line between poison and panacea is often thin. The knowledge of what heals and what is a hazard can be traced back to pre colonial times. Ships from Empires crossing oceans carried plants as green gold together with enslaved peoples and animals. At the same time, the dual movement of colonizing landscapes and landscaping colonies by Europeans ensured that indigenous livelihoods were damaged in ways still palpable today. This exhibition brings together artists from post-colonial contexts who are looking critically at the colonial past and deconstructing history through the lens of the botanical. Kristaps Ancāns looks at the artificiality of domestic interiors decorated with indigenous plants removed from their native contexts, creating a sense of control over nature. Joiri Minaya addresses colonial encounters in the Americas, gesturing towards nature’s reclamation of her lands. Scherezade Garcia reveals interconnectedness between the natural environment and commercial enterprises. Virginia Wagner unearths how botanical knowledge is historically translated. Tamika Galanis investigates how botanicals became agents of health and resistance. A collaborative botanical timeline positions plants as protagonists in colonial history, capable of draining life out of the body or restoring well-being.

Opening Reception | Jacqueline Humphries: Painting in the Screen-Based World


Jacqueline Humphries integrates gestural expression with the effects of new technologies, exploring how painting can capture and complicate the sensory experience of a screen-based world. Her imposing, large-scale canvases have long equated painting with other media interfaces, subjecting its analog format to an evolving set of signs and symbols from our online vernacular. These latest works—presented singly or linked in multi-panel configurations—feature stenciled motifs of emoticons and emojis, logos, and digitally-enlarged patterns that fill the surface, derived from images of white noise or splattered ink from a faulty printer. The prevailing mood skews toward the ruminative here, and the style of rendering toward deformation; Humphries uses the trappings of our networked existence to weigh how it actually feels to inhabit it. A low-grade pathos radiates from the jittery optics of her stenciled patterns, and occasionally congeals into visual tropes of B-movie horror—a reminder that, despite perennial claims for its obsolescence, painting itself refuses to die; and that horror may be the genre most bracingly suited to processing the present.

Opening Reception | K.R.M. Mooney: extence


Prior to the opening of the exhibition, the limestone tile floor of the gallery was buffed at the request of the artist. Polishing a surface requires direct contact with an abrasive. This insistent rotation exemplifies rhythms and internal drives that gently transform matter through prolonged touch. At the moment when the limestone is pulverized, its calcium-bearing chemical composition comes into focus, permeating the space and establishing one of the registers of convergence present throughout the show. Mooney’s use of calcium carbonate substances in various forms draws out affinities between discrete objects. The compound becomes a node in the networked modes of material behaviors. By emphasizing the gallery floor, the very basis of the architectural interior and the physical support of many of his works, the artist subverts the assumed invisibility and auxiliary role of the ground, embracing it in a gesture of long-lasting care, the effect of which will outlive the exhibition.

Lecture | Democracy: Is This The End? (in-person and online)


Lecturer Slavoj Žižek contends that the Culture War raging in the developed West is a false war, a war between two versions of the same global capitalist system: its unrestrained pure version and its “neo-Fascist” conservative version which tries to unite capitalist dynamism with traditional values and liberties. As Žižek argues, the paradox is here double: Western Political Correctness is a displacement of the old class struggle – the liberal elite pretends to protect the threatened racial and sexual minorities to obfuscate the basic fact of their privileged economic and power position. This allows the alt Right populists to present themselves as a defense of the “real” working class against the big corporations and “deep state” elites. The implication to be drawn is not that Left and Right are today outdated notions but that both poles of today’s Cold War can only be properly grasped as a displaced class struggle: neither of them really stands for those exploited. What is becoming more obvious is the inability of the parliamentary liberal democracy to cope with today’s multiple crises and apocalyptic prospects. Slavoj Žižek is a Slovenian philosopher and cultural critic. He is a professor at the European Graduate School, International Director of the Birkbeck Institute for the Humanities, Birkbeck College, University of London, and a senior researcher at the Institute of Sociology, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia. His books include Living in the End Times, First as Tragedy, Then as Farce and In Defense of Lost Causes. In conversation with Jeremy Glick.

Gallery Talk | Catherine Chalmers: We Rule: Exhibition Discussion


A discussion focusing on the intersection of science, nature and culture, presented on the occasion of Catherine Chalmers' exhibition. Chalmers created a site-specific drawing installation in the lower-level gallery and corridor that depicts the underground labyrinth of an ant colony inspired by her observation of, and engagement with more than one dozen colonies of leafcutter ants on the Osa Peninsula in Costa Rica. For Chalmers, leafcutter ants are metaphors for humanity’s life on earth: they farm, communicate, and collaborate; they also colonize, battle, and destroy. Yet the drawings in We Rule highlight a significant way that the insects diverge from humans—as an integrated part of their ecosystem, the ants carry out their actions in harmony with the earth. Chalmers will be joined in conversation by Oliver Milman, environmental correspondent at The Guardian US, and scientist Barrett Klein.

Screening | Tap Ellington: Tap Dance and Music on Film (in-person and online)


Tap Ellington was presented on Friday, July 14 in 2017 at the Appel Room, Jazz at Lincoln Center. It was a musical celebration of a man's life, his music and a unique legacy of introducing, promoting and presenting tap dancers to audiences all over the world. Master of ceremonies Tony Waag and the Duke Ellington Center Big Band conducted by Eli Yamin joined together in honor of this legendary icon of American Jazz, with tap dance performances by emerging raw talent, contemporary soloists and leading tap masters including Brenda Bufalino, Ayodele Casel, Mercedes Ellington, Sarah Reich, Caleb Teicher, Sam Weber, Jossette, Joseph Wiggan and others. Duke Ellington composed a number of songs specifically for tap dancers, and many of America's greatest tap dancers worked with Duke Ellington. Ellington wrote tunes such as Bojangles and Tap Dancers Blues, and incorporated the seminal tap dance solo David Dance Before the Lord into his Concert of Sacred Music, often performed by tap dance virtuoso Bunny Briggs and the elegant rhythm tap dancer Buster Brown (1960's to 1980's). The Library of Congress "Tap Dance in America" Database, created by Constance Valis Hill, lists 195 records in their search engine under Ellington/Tap Dance.
