Discussion | Corruption on Trial: Investigating the Honduran Narcostate Through the U.S. Federal Courts (online)


In the past decade, more than a dozen Hondurans from the country's political, security and business circles have been tried for offenses related to drug-trafficking in U.S. federal court. The tens of thousands of pages of records produced in the course of these trials provide an extraordinarily rich portrait of the role of narcotrafficking in Honduran politics and security forces, and in cross-border businesses and money-flows. A binational team of investigative journalists, Danielle Mackey and Jennifer Ávila, are building a database to make this information available to journalists, academics, activists, and the general public, as they pursue their own journalistic investigations into the material. Panelists: - Danielle Mackey, Independent Journalist - Jennifer Ávila, Co-founder and director of Contracorriente - Dr. Pamela Ruiz, Criminologist specialized in Central America - Dr. Amelia Frank-Vitale, Postdoctoral Research Associate and Lecturer, Program in Latin American Studies, Princeton

Discussion | Israel's National Security Strategy Following the Elections (online)


Israel is today an established, prosperous and fundamentally secure state, but continues to face severe threats from rockets, missiles and cyber, even an existential danger posed by Iran's nuclear program. Moreover, Israel's new hardline government may lead to a crisis in relations with the US and Abraham Accords states and exacerbate the growing processes of international delegitimization. A conflict with Hamas, Palestinians in the West Bank and potential escalation to include Hezbollah are soon likely. Chuck Freilich, a former deputy national security adviser in Israel, will present an authoritative analysis of Israel's national security strategy, based on his award winning book Israeli National Security: a New Strategy for an Era of Change, the most comprehensive study to date in this field.

Lecture | Vicious and Virtuous Circles in the Rural Economy of East European Borderlands (online)


This talk provides a cross-border comparison between rural communities in the borderlands of Austria-Hungary, Tsarist Russia and the Balkan fringes of the Ottoman Empire. The aim is that of hammering out an explanatory framework that would account for disparities in modernization, innovation absorption and social agency, starting from factors such as the initial terms of peasant emancipation, legal framework, the edge given by historical privilege and, conversely, the long shadow of serfdom in the form of renewed dependence and neoserfdom. Speaker Dr. Irina Marin is Assistant Professor in Political History at Utrecht University and specializes in Modern European History with particular emphasis on Central and Eastern European history.

Lecture | Russia’s Federalist Imagination: Visions of Difference and Development in an Interconnected Eurasia, 1889-1918 (in-person and online)


In the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, the Russian empire and its international emigre colonies emerged as a vibrant laboratory of federalist thought and politics. While the multinational Soviet Union was the best-known and most internationally influential product of this milieu, the Bolsheviks were relative latecomers to federalism, drawing upon the established ideas of more moderate and generally overlooked socialist competitors. This presentation offers a glimpse into the international circulation of federal frameworks between late imperial Russia and the wider world, highlighting abortive yet ambitious attempts at incorporating models from Anglophone and German-speaking countries into projects of post-Tsarist order. Following the ideas and travels of Russian-, Ukrainian-, and Polish-speaking socialists, it locates this rich federalist imagination within pan-European and global contexts often elided in conventional Soviet-oriented narratives. Speaker Marcel Radosław Garboś is a historian of social and political thought in the late Russian Empire and the Soviet Union, with broad interests in the comparative history of empires and visions of post-imperial order in the modern world. He is a graduate of Bard College at Simon’s Rock and Harvard University,

Book Discussion | Thomas Mann's Classic 1927 novel, The Magic Mountain


The Magic Mountain is a novel by Thomas Mann, first published in German in November 1924 before being translated to English in 1927. It is widely considered to be one of the most influential works of twentieth-century German literature. The narrative opens in the decade before World War I with the introduction of the protagonist, Hans Castorp, the only child of a Hamburg merchant family. Following the early death of his parents, Castorp has been brought up by his grandfather and, later, by a maternal uncle named James Tienappel. Castorp is in his early 20s, about to take up a shipbuilding career in Hamburg, his home town. Before beginning work, he undertakes a journey to visit his tubercular cousin, Joachim Ziemssen, who is seeking a cure in a sanatorium in Davos, high up in the Swiss Alps. In the opening chapter, Castorp leaves his familiar life and obligations, in what he later learns to call "the flatlands", to visit the rarefied mountain air and introspective small world of the sanatorium. Castorp's departure from the sanatorium is repeatedly delayed by his failing health. What at first appears to be a minor bronchial infection with slight fever is diagnosed by the sanatorium's chief doctor and director, Hofrat Behrens, as symptoms of tuberculosis. Castorp is persuaded by Behrens to stay until his health improves. During his extended stay, Castorp meets a variety of characters, who represent a microcosm of pre-war Europe. These include Lodovico Settembrini (an Italian humanist and encyclopedist, a student of Giosue Carducci); Leo Naphta, a Jewish Jesuit who favors totalitarianism; Mynheer Peeperkorn, a dionysian Dutchman; and his romantic interest, Madame Clawdia Chauchat. Paul Thomas Mann (1875 - 1955) was a German novelist, short story writer, social critic, philanthropist, essayist, and the 1929 Nobel Prize in Literature laureate. His highly symbolic and ironic epic novels and novellas are noted for their insight into the psychology of the artist and the intellectual. His analysis and critique of the European and German soul used modernized versions of German and Biblical stories, as well as the ideas of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Friedrich Nietzsche, and Arthur Schopenhauer. Mann is one of the best-known exponents of the so-called Exilliteratur, German literature written in exile by those who opposed the Hitler regime.

Book Discussion | Unpayable Debt: The Philosophy Behind Value (in-person and online)


Denise Ferreira da Silva's new book examines the relationships among coloniality, raciality, and global capital from a black feminist “poethical” perspective. Inspired by Octavia E. Butler's 1979 sci-fi novel Kindred, in which an African-American writer is transported back in time to the antebellum South to save her owner-ancestor, Unpayable Debt relates the notion of value to coloniality—both economic and ethical. Focusing on the philosophy behind value, Denise Ferreira da Silva exposes capital as the juridical architecture and ethical grammar of the world. Here, raciality—a symbol of coloniality—justifies deployments of total violence to enable expropriation and land extraction.

Book Discussion | Interior Frontiers: Essays on the Entrails of Inequality


In this book, Ann Laura Stoler navigates the shadows and shatterzones of democratic policies, considering how imperial features are folded through (il)liberal orders, where racial inequities thicken in the borderlands of interior frontiers. Sometimes those frontiers, or the lines that define the contours of belonging and not belonging, are porous--often fixed and firm. For those on the "wrong side" of the fabulated division between inside and out, entry requirements can be opaque, neither verbal nor visible. Illegibilities are secured in code.

Opening Reception | Eric Araujo: What's he building in there? An exercise in humility


This exhibition brings together sculptural objects that come from the desire to make things that are not derivative or intentionally reference or conceptualize something other. They are not topical and don't speak to anything that is happening in the world now. In a time when the world is reeling back from a pandemic after taking stock of what matters most and attempting to maintain some semblance of sanity from the frequency of negative news it's important to relearn how to feel, how to interpret, and to take a break. While art is a vital and valuable vehicle for the telling of the history of our time these works are not for that. They are abstract, formal, reductive, elegant, taking cues from parametric architecture and biomorphic forms found in nature while hearkening to traditional furniture making processes but heed the unconventional for their outcome.

Conference | Edible, Or: The Architecture of Metabolism (in-person and online)


A conference bringing together participants of the 2022 Tallinn Architecture Biennale. Their encounter aims to generate a profound debate on the intersections of architecture, food systems, and regenerative design. Edible seeks to reveal how architecture constructs, distributes, and leverages power via material upcycling, interspecies alliances, biopolitics and excremental processes. It maps and redraws the affinities of the built environment as a product of many forces, translated in the tensions between products and by-products, production, and consumption and, finally, creation and decomposition. Participants will be called to reflect on how architecture may redefine the notion of resources; produce food, and be eaten away? How can we define the architecture of metabolism?

Opening Reception | Thomas Barger: Wholesome


Included in the show are Barger’s Shaker-inspired paper pulp pulpit chairs, a few cloudy coffee tables and petite side chairs, animalesque objects, vintage chair assemblages, and new large-scale wall works. The artist and master colorist continues his curious amble down the Paper Pulp Built Road.   Wholesome takes its name from a recurring triangulation of hole motifs – functional lightening holes, peepholes, and wicker baskets–dispersed throughout this work. Trained as an architect and landscape designer at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Barger has a keen awareness for interlacement and intention. The absence of matter in the design of an object–from a hole, for instance–alleviates logistical hurdles such as bulkiness or fragility. The embedded baskets, on the other hand, serve as thoughtful counterweights. They can be temporal, rather than spatial, voids during bouts of uncertainty and trouble.

In each aircraft were two young female flyers, executing the first all-woman Missing Man Formation flyover in Navy history in memory of Captain Rosemary Mariner — groundbreaking Navy jet pilot, inspiring commander, determined and dedicated leader — whose drive to ensure the United States military had its choice of the best America had to offer, both men and women, broke down barriers and opened doors for female aviators wanting to serve their country.

Play | Eugene Ionesco's Exit the King: The World Changes, People Don't


What happens when the absurd becomes real, and reality becomes absurd? This production of Eugene Ionesco's pioneering absurdist comedy takes a close look at power, ego and terror, proving that while the world around us may change, human nature rarely does. Directed by Omar Sangare and featuring an ensemble cast of emerging young actors, playing multiple roles, audiences are drawn into a game where the King may set the rules but the actual winner is anyone's guess.

Concert | The Music of Karol Rathaus and the Composers Who Followed Him


Works by Bottigliero, Copland, Koffler, Sanejko, Saylor, Schober, and Smaldone. Performed by Magdalena Filipczak, violin; Monika Gardon-Preinl, piano; Piotr Lato, clarinet; Grzegorz Mania, piano; Karolina Mikolajczyk, violin; Iwo Jedynecki, accordion; and guest artist Michael Boriskin, piano. Karol Rathaus (1895 - 1954) was a German-Austrian Jewish composer who immigrated to the United States via Berlin, Paris, and London, escaping the rise of Nazism in Germany. He was a renowned film composer, writing many commissioned works and several film scores, while his compositional output includes mostly instrumental works: symphonies, orchestral works, serenades, sonatas and ballets. While he achieved global fame during his lifetime, in Nazi Germany his compositions were classified as "degenerate art" and assigned a performance ban. He is now considered one of the many great 'composers in exile'.

Screening | The Sea Does Not Reach Naples: Student Film on Life in Postwar Italy


This directing thesis production from Elena Vannoni is based on Anna Maria Ortese's 1953 collection Il mare non bagna Napoli, a lively representation of everyday life in post-WWII Naples, Italy. In the building of the Granili – a grotesque emblem of Naples in the 50s, the writerly persona of Ortese guides us through a child’s experience of receiving her first pair of glasses, a woman's inner struggle upon the life-altering return of her lost love, and a melancholic hope to hold together a family broken by the war. Traveling with Ortese in the inferno-esque reality of post-war Neapolitan society, we experience in each story the painful grace that evokes the cuore pensante (ever-thinking heart) within ourselves.

Play | A Double Bill of Shows by New and Old Playwrights


Two plays in one night! Sun: Dedicated to Malcolm X by Adrienne Kennedy and Blurring Shine by Zakiyyah Alexander. Adrienne Kennedy is one of America's greatest living playwrights, making her Broadway debut this fall with Ohio State Murders. Her fiercely individual and visionary work has been produced on stages around the world for over 50 years. Sun: Dedicated to Malcolm X was first produced in London during the late sixties and is an impassioned, sorrowful reverie about loss, frustration, and hope. The works of Zakiyyah Alexander have been produced at theatres across the United States and celebrated with numerous awards. Blurring Shine is her trenchant dissection of the intersection between hip-hop culture and corporate profits, as seen through the eyes of two half brothers at opposite ends of the class system in America. This double bill is directed by Jim Furlong
