Lecture | Bolshevik Tower of Babel: The Language Politics of Internationalism in the Early Comintern


This lecture will explain the Bolsheviks’ evolving approach to the politics of language diversity in their struggle to kickstart global proletarian revolution in the first decade of Soviet rule. Leading Bolsheviks – most of whom were fluent in multiple European languages – provided the bulk of the translation and interpretation services at the first two Comintern world congresses. As the Comintern and its influence grew, however, so too did the dilemmas of multilingualism for socialists who were attempting to unite in pursuit of global communism. Speaker Brigid O’Keeffe is an Associate Professor of History at Brooklyn College.

Lecture | Affection and Survival: Primo Levi and Friendship in the Camp


Affection is a lesser known aspect of the human and Jewish experience in the camps. Mostly it is related to the fractured past of which the camp is the present. Having written some of the essential pages on the human experience in the Lager, Primo Levi continued contemplating and writing about it throughout his life. This talk will question affection in Levi’s writing and its place in the camp as a strategy of survival. Affection saves, but it also prompts Levi’s internal inquiry that leads to the heart of his defining conceptual innovation: the Gray Zone. Speaker Uri S. Cohen teaches Hebrew and Italian literature at Tel Aviv University.
