Conference | Latin America in a Multipolar World


The growing convergence of COVID-19, the war in Ukraine, food and fuel shortages around the world, have all given rise to a perception that the world cannot be left to either US-Russia or US-China bi-polar relations. The recent announcement that the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa) has been expanded to include Argentina, Egypt, Ethiopia, Iran, Saudi Arabia, and United Arab Emirates is a major step in this direction. This conference will discuss this process and what it means for Latin America.

Concert | Swing Trio


Carla Cook Trio: Everything Carla Cook sings swings. There's a reason for that: Cook has been influenced by the jazz vocal masters, but equally influenced by phenomenal instrumentalists, like Miles Davis, Wes Montgomery and The Crusaders. The Detroit native also finds inspiration in R&B, Motown, pop, gospel, and country. In fact, she has put her unique phrasing on everything from Marvin Gaye's Inner City Blues to Bobbie Gentry's Ode to Billie Joe to Neil Young's Heart of Gold. As a result, Cook has an improvisational style that's steeped in the swing tradition yet eclectic and brimming with fresh interpretations.

Discussion | The Legacy of Schindler's List: Commemorating the Film's 30th Anniversary (in-person and online)


Schindler's List launched a movement. Steven Spielberg's seminal film, released 30 years ago in late 1993, brought Holocaust remembrance to the forefront of popular culture. It also gave rise to the establishment of the USC Shoah Foundation, which activated thousands of volunteers around the world to record Holocaust testimonies, amassing one of the most substantial collections in the world. Three decades after the Oscar-winning movie's release, how has it contributed to the evolution of Holocaust history and memory? How have museums, memorial sites, and other Shoah-related films continued to preserve survivor stories? What still remains to be done? This is a panel discussion about the impact and legacy of the seminal film, featuring: Joel Citron, Chair, USC Shoah Foundation Board of Councilors Sara Lustig, Chair, International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance Croatia Co-Chair, daughter of Branko Lustig, Holocaust survivor and Producer of Schindler's List Dr. Robert J. Williams, Finci-Viterbi Executive Director, USC Shoah Foundation Moderated by Annette Insdorf, author of Indelible Shadows: Film and Holocaust and Professor in the Graduate Film Program of Columbia's School of the Arts
