Lecture | Futures of Black Resistance: Disruption, Rebellion, Abolition (online)


The summer of 2020 saw the largest black-led protests in UK history. Hundreds of thousands took to the streets across Britain, primarily focused on the ongoing problem of police racism. Britain had not seen black-led protests on this scale since the early 1980s, and this talk by Adam Elliott-Cooper examines some of the impediments to radical black action and thought during that thirty year period. The liberalization of black politics in the 21st century is analyzed through the language of diversity, hate crime, privilege and unconscious bias. These processes offer a window into how grassroots collective action against state power can be displaced by individualized policies which focus on racial prejudice. This talk goes on to argue that police brutality is always a point of antagonism that invests black social life with recurrent sites of contestation. In other words, policing is where moments flare up to shed light on other issues. These moments include specific case of police violence, but also the everyday forms of state power and control which criminalize black spaces, black lives and black cultures. It is this direct antagonism with the state that enables a more radical black politics to break away from the limitations of liberal anti-racism, culminating in protest movements like Black Lives Matter. Adam Elliott-Cooper is Lecturer in Public and Social Policy at Queen Mary University of London.

Lecture | Violent Utopia: Dispossession and Black Restoration in Tulsa (online)


This lecture by Jovan Scott Lewis, Associate Professor and Chair of Geography at the University of California, Berkeley, covers the history of Greenwood, Tulsa, Oklahoma, more famously known as Black Wall Street. It assesses how the 1921 race massacre’s destruction of Greenwood was reproduced by insidiously violent processes that include urban renewal. Throughout successive waves of dispossession, Greenwood became geographically and narratively glossed as North Tulsa. From advocating for food access to formal reparations claims, it details how North Tulsans responses to these circumstances are organized and driven by community formation, understood as an ethic of restoration.

Symposium | To Remedy Past and Continuing Harms: Racial Justice Ballot Measures (in-person and online)


In November, New Yorkers will have the opportunity to vote for three measures intended to address structural racism and persistent inequality. These ballot initiatives were proposed by the City's Racial Justice Commission and would change the City Charter by including a statement of values to guide government and commitment to justice and equity, establishing and maintaining an office of equity, and adopting a true cost of living measure. If the proposals pass, they'll provide new tools to promote equity and justice for all New Yorkers. They’ll bring new power, access, and opportunity to BIPOC residents. And they’ll create lasting capacity and accountability to achieve racial equity over the decades to come. Join members of the Racial justice Commission and other racial justice leaders to discuss the measures and their anticipated impacts.   Speakers Include: ● Jennifer Jones Austin, Chair, Racial Justice Commission; President, FPWA ● Henry Garrido, Vice-Chair, Racial Justice Commission; Executive Director, DC37 ● Darrick Hamilton, Commissioner, Racial Justice Commission; Founder and Director, Institute for Race, Power and Political Economy ● Melanie Hart, Senior Vice President for Equity, Inclusion, and Social Justice and Chief Diversity Officer ● Sideya Sherman, Commissioner, Mayor's Office of Equity

Heller’s delightful account of his life between the ages of 16 and 26 shows his ambitious journey from the start of his illustrious career as a graphic designer, cartoonist, and writer.

Discussion | The Translated and Untranslatable. A Conversation with the Writer and His Translator (in-person and online)


A discussion with Vladimir Sorokin and Max Lawton. Moderated by Mark Lipovetsky, Professor of Slavic Languages. Vladimir Sorokin was born in a small town outside of Moscow in 1955. He trained as an engineer at the Moscow Institute of Oil and Gas, but turned to art and writing, becoming a major presence in the Moscow underground of the 1980s. His work was banned in the Soviet Union, and his first novel, The Queue, was published by the famed emigre dissident Andrei Sinyavsky in France in 1983. In 1992, Sorokin's Their Four Hearts was nominated for the Russian Booker Prize; in 1999, the publication of the controversial novel Blue Lard, which included a sex scene between Stalin and Khrushchev, led to public demonstrations against the book and to demands that Sorokin be prosecuted as a pornographer. Max Lawton is a translator, novelist and musician. He received his BA in Russian Literature and Culture from Columbia University and his MPhil from Queen's College, Oxford, where he wrote a dissertation comparing Celine and Dostoevsky. He has translated many books by Vladimir Sorokin and is also working with Jonathan Littell and Christian Kracht. Lawton is also the author of one novel and two collections of stories currently awaiting publication and is writing his doctoral dissertation on phenomenology and the 20th-century novel at Columbia University. He lives in Los Angeles and is a member of four noise-music ensembles.

Book Discussion | The Young Dante: Archetypes of His Early Intellectual Biography


Maria Luisa Ardizzone's book deals with Dante's Florentine years, particularly those of his early intellectual formation between the '80s and early '90s of the 13th century, and presents them as a crucible of great importance. Focusing on the Vita Nuova and two canzoni that Dante later commented on in the Convivio, the volume evaluates the continuity (and discontinuity) Dante establishes between his early work and the two poems, and identifies a few of the archetypes that the young poet takes from the ancient-medieval tradition and reshapes in order to pave the way for his own early and future work.
