Author Reading | Archaeology of Babel: The Colonial Foundations of the Humanities


Taking flight with and from Professor Siraj Ahmed's book, this roundtable provides occasion to address the long roots and deep impact of colonialism as it shapes and figures how and with what consequences we conceptualize and study language(s). How can we understand the work that we do in the study of human expressive practices in light of the foundational role of colonialism this book excavates? What are the parameters and practices of a decolonized humanities in light of the acknowledgment of these colonial foundations? Panelists Shoumik Bhattacharya, Soojung Choe, and Catherine Engh will be joined by Ahmed, who will offer both an overview of the book and responses to their remarks, as we engage such questions as these.

Author Reading | My Butch Career: Memoir of an "Anti-Girl"


During her difficult childhood, Esther Newton recalls that she “became an anti-girl, a girl refusenik, caught between genders,” and that her “child body was a strong and capable instrument stuffed into the word ‘girl.’” Later, in early adulthood, as she was on her way to becoming a trailblazing figure in gay and lesbian studies, she “had already chosen higher education over the strongest passion in my life, my love for women, because the two seemed incompatible.” In My Butch Career, Newton tells the compelling, disarming, and at times sexy story of her struggle to write, teach, and find love, all while coming to terms with her identity during a particularly intense time of homophobic persecution in the twentieth century.

Play | Vaclav Havel's Audience: Manager and Employee Square Off


Audience centers on a meeting between brewery manager Sladek and employee Vanek. While the manager is clearly opening too many beers and inducing binge drinking, it is less clear what he wants from Vanek. Audience (1975) is the first of Vaclav Havel’s partly autobiographical one-act plays known as the “Vanek Trilogy” (followed by Protest (1978) and Mistake (1983)) based on his experience of being subject to forced work while under constant harassment from the Communist regime. Since the plays were banned in then-Czechoslovakia, they were performed in people’s living rooms and even recorded on vinyl. After the play, there will be a talkback and an afterparty.
