Symposium | Fusion: Remixing Jazz, Rethinking Genre in the 21st Century


A symposium focused on musicians who mix jazz with other musical genres and traditions. The relationship between a discourse of jazz as a paradigmatic expression of Black American culture as well as a space of musical creativity accessible to musicians across the globe regardless of their background has fueled debates regarding musical legitimacy and authenticity in and out of jazz, revealing the tensions "crossing borders" incurs for musicians, critics, and audiences. In this context, the assembled scholars interrogate fusion as genre, as performance practice, as social positioning, and in terms of aesthetic value as a way to re-think conventional notions of jazz and musical fusions writ large.

Book Discussion | Manifestations of a Sufi Woman in Central Asia: A Critical Edition of fi-i Bars Mahar al-Ajib


A discussion with author Aziza Shanazarova. The Maẓhar al-ʿajāʾib is, as of today, the only known extensive treatise devoted to a female religious master in Islamic Central Asia. It is a devotional work written to expound upon the teachings of Aghā-yi Buzurg, (“The Great Lady”), who was active in early 16th century Bukhara. Not only does the Maẓhar al-ʿajāʾib provide information for understanding the religious history of 16th century Central Asia, but it also serves as an important source for the study of female religiosity and gender history in early modern Central Asia. This lecture will discuss the recently published critical edition of the Maẓhar al-ʿajāʾib and its overall importance for the study of gender history in Muslim societies. Moderated by Valentina Izmirlieva, Director of the Harriman Institute. This event is part of a Director’s Seminar series, which allows new Harriman faculty members to introduce their research to both colleagues and students across disciplinary and departmental divides.

Lecture | The Russian Soul and the Soviet Human in Modern Chinese Culture (online)


How did Russian-Soviet literature and culture shape Chinese modernity and especially dominate twentieth-century China's cosmopolitan imaginations? Why does the so-called "Russian soul" - the Russian spirit or even the Russian ideology - continue to be influential in the contemporary Chinese consciousness in an age of China's global rise (and Putin's war in Ukraine)? Addressing such questions, Dr Wang's talk will be a general survey about the presence- or the omnipresence - of Russian-Soviet influences in China's cultural, intellectual, and spiritual transformation throughout the short revolutionary century and the following postsocialist marketization.

Robert Perišic's book shifts perspectives between a runaway slave and the Scatterwind, a bodiless spirit that moves effortlessly through time and space, from the days of ancient Syracuse to our contemporary era. At the center of their stories is Miu, an Egyptian cat— one of the earliest to be domesticated— through whom Robert Perišic channels a deeply profound and beautiful understanding of animal and human behaviors as seen through the results of language, warfare, colonization, trade, and the building of a society.
