Author Reading | Ganges Water Machine: Designing New India’s Ancient River


Beyond the urban density of Mumbai and the IT centers of Bangalore and Hyderabad lies the Ganges River basin, the world’s most densely populated river basin. Not only is it densely populated, agriculturally productive, and monsoonal, but also one of the most hyper-engineered landscapes on the planet. Presenting original research from his award-winning book, Ganges Water Machine, Anthony Acciavatti will present how and why this basin became a laboratory for testing out and building a new culture around water management. In particular, he will share why he spent a decade walking and boating across the Ganges and combing through dusty archives to write the first environmental history of the basin in half a century, but also why it led him to develop new ways of mapping and visualizing environmental change.

Peter Manseau presents his new book. In the early days of photography, in the death-strewn wake of the Civil War, one man seized America’s imagination.

Mumler was a sensation: The affluent and influential came calling, including Mary Todd Lincoln, who arrived at his studio in disguise amidst rumors of séances in the White House.

Lecture | Re-Embracing the Lachrymose Theory of Jewish History


In his multi-volume social and religious history of the Jews, Salo Baron, one of the most influential Jewish historians of the 20th century, decried how Jewish history had been told and retold as an endless tale of woe. Instead, Baron stressed that, in the diaspora, Jews did not necessarily suffer more than other members of the societies in which they resided, and often lived creatively within Christian and Islamic lands. This evening Benjamin Gampel will explain how Baron’s claims about the Jews grew out of the social and religious landscape of the early twentieth century Europe. Gampel will argue, based on his understanding of medieval Jewish history, that a newer understanding of the lachrymose history of the Jews could well be seen as an appropriate way to appreciate the saga of this minority people and be of importance, as well, to the social and religious challenges facing contemporary Jewry.

Book Club | Ian McEwan's On Chesil Beach


Chesil Beach, where Edward and Florence spend the first (and last) night of their marriage, is on the English Channel. The beach is distinctive for its “shingle,” or pebbles washed up along its eighteen miles, graded by the sea with larger ones to the east. Locals claim they can identify where a pebble was found by its size. Ian McEwan is an English novelist and screenwriter. In 2008, The Times featured him on their list of "The 50 greatest British writers since 1945" and The Daily Telegraph ranked him number 19 in their list of the "100 most powerful people in British culture".

Workshop | Italian tambourine and Frame Drum


Alessandra Belloni is an Italian musician, singer, dancer, actress, choreographer. Her instrument is the Southern Italian tambourine and her music and dance are focused on the traditional roots of tarantella. Her studies of tarantism are rooted in the culture of Apulia and Calabria, expressing it from women's point of view. Her work has gained international appreciation, especially in the United States and Brazil.  Jonathan Haas is an American orchestral timpanist. The New York Times wrote: "Wherever one finds a percussion instrument waiting to be rubbed, shook, struck or strummed, [Haas] is probably nearby, ready to fulfill his duties with consummate expertise ... he is a masterful percussionist." He has been profiled and reviewed over the years in the Los Angeles Times, Seattle Post Intelligencer, Sydney Morning Herald, and more.
