Author Reading | Japan on the Silk Road: Encounters and Perspectives of Politics and Culture in Eurasia


Selcuk Esenbel will focus her talk on her recent book, which provides for the first time the historical background indispensable for understanding Japan's current perspectives and policies in the vast area of Eurasia across the Middle East and Central Asia. Japanese diplomats, military officers, archaeologists, and linguists traversed the Silk Road, involving Japan in the Great Game and exploring ancient civilizations. The book exposes the entanglements of pre-war Japanese Pan-Asianism with Pan-Islamism, Turkic nationalism and Mongolian independence as a global history of imperialism. Japanese connections to Ottoman Turkey, India, Egypt, Iran, Afghanistan, and China at the same time reveal a discrete global narrative of cosmopolitanism and transnationality.

Author Reading | The Survival of the Jews in France, 1940-1944


Between the French defeat in 1940 and liberation in 1944, the Nazis killed almost 80,000 of France’s Jews, both French and foreign. Compared to other nations, however, this death toll was significantly lower: while 45% of the Jews of Belgium and 80% of those living in the Netherlands perished, 25% of France’s Jews became victims. In a rich, even-handed portrait of a complex and changing society, Jacques Semelin sheds light on this enigma and paints a radically unfamiliar picture of occupied France.

Author Reading | Józef Czapski: An Apprenticeship of Looking


This stunning monograph, a long-overdue critical appraisal of Polish artist Józef Czapski, arrives at a moment when the artist's legacy is gaining new recognition. Within these pages, author Eric Karpeles conveys how making art was so enmeshed with Czapski's way of seeing and being in the world that it was second nature. Given that he lived into his ninety-seventh year, it's no surprise that the artist has works dating from every decade of the twentieth century but the first. As witness to the tumultuous events of that century, he found in painting "a refuge and a salvation."
