Conference | New Perspectives on Climate Economics (online)


Professor Willi Semmler on the macroeconomic analysis of trends in climate change and climate disasters. The role of the financial market will be explored, as will policy efforts in mitigation and adaptation and the distributional effects of climate policies and industrial, fiscal, and monetary policies.  The plenary speaker will be Paul de Grauwe, the John Paulson Chair in European Political Economy at the London School of Economics. Professor de Grauwe will discuss where the U.S. and E.U. stand in terms of energy transition and the suitable macro (monetary and fiscal) policy instruments in the short and long run.  Other discussion topics will include:  -- What are the obstacles for green investments in addition to rising energy prices interest rates? Can green energy be shored up in this context?  -- What are the possible effects of the fossil fuel embargo? To what extent can energy independence be achieved, given the constraints on the resource side?  -- What is the role of the public sector in this energy transition, and how should it interact with the private economic sector? What policies could support a just and fair transition?   -- How might an eventual economic crisis interact with an energy crisis, and how might the E.U. fare differently than the U.S?

Book Discussion | Francophone Sephardic Fiction: Writing Migration, Diaspora, and Modernity (online)


Judith Roumani's  new book approaches modern Sephardic literature in a comparative way to draw out similarities and differences among selected francophone novelists from various countries, with a focus on North Africa. The definition of Sepharad here is broader than just Spain: it embraces Jews whose ancestors had lived in North Africa for centuries, even before the arrival of Islam, and who still today trace their allegiance to ways of being Jewish that go back to Babylon, as do those whose ancestors spent a few hundred years in Iberia. The author traces the strong influence of oral storytelling on modern novelists of the twentieth and early twenty-first centuries and explores the idea of the portable homeland, as exile and migration engulfed the long-rooted Sephardic communities.

Book Discussion | The Last Ghetto: An Imprisoned Society (online)


Terezin, as it was known in Czech, or Theresienstadt in German, was operated by the Nazis between November 1941 and May 1945 as a transit ghetto for Central and Western European Jews before their deportation for murder in the East. Today, Theresienstadt is best known for its use as Nazi propaganda to impress the International Red Cross. This important aspect must be contextualized within the society of the 140,000 people who were imprisoned there. Dr. Anna Hajkova's new book The Last Ghetto offers both a modern history of this Central European ghetto and the first in-depth analytical history of an imprisoned society during the Holocaust. Based on research from ninety-nine archives, ten countries, and nine languages, the book offers an unflinching gaze on the social experience in extremis.

Dance Performance | Undulate: Choreography Inspired by Visual Art


A collaborative and responsive new performance work by choreographer Marcia Milhazes amid Mistura Sagrada, a solo exhibition of work by her sister, artist Beatriz Milhazes, on view at the gallery through October 29. Orchestrated in relation to Beatriz Milhazes’s hanging sculpture "Gamboa III" (2022), the event will feature a solo dancer—Domenico Salvatore—with Brazilian modernist music performed by pianist Yuka Shimizu. Gamboa III incorporates various materials inspired by Carnival props, in part reused, including adornments made from acrylic on foam board, textile, plastic, and plexiglass. Featuring allusions to Brazilian context, popular culture and folk traditions—including the political implications of the celebration of Carnival in Brazil—as well as the country’s Tropicália and Bossa Nova musical movements of the late 1960s, Gamboa III follows Gamboa II (2016), which was displayed for four months in the lobby of the Jewish Museum in New York in 2016. Beatriz Milhazes created her first Gamboa installation in 2008 after her work designing sets for her sister’s contemporary dance company. Marcia Milhazes’s choreography will animate "Gamboa III," bringing to life, as she puts it in a new text accompanying the performance, “a unique and distinct system of concrete forms that will enunciate a non-verbal, poetic, organic world.”

Opening Reception | Becoming 2022 (New York Is A Friendly Town): City Nights


Six third-year BFA Photography and Video students and six department alumni were invited to respond to six historic black and white photographs from the department's collection by the famed photographer of New York City nights, Weegee (born Usher Fellig, 1899-1968). Each participant selected two of the Weegee prints as prompts for creating their own two works. The six Weegee photographs are on view in tandem with the students’ and alumni’s visual responses, inviting visitors to find connections between the new works and the historic images that prompted them. The subtitle of the exhibition, “New York Is A Friendly Town,” comes directly from one of the six Weegee photographs included in the exhibition. The alumni participants are Amina Gingold (2020), Leah James (2015), Elizabeth Messer (2022), Idrissa Sidibe (2021), An Rong Xu (2012) and Hugo Yu (2019). The participating class of 2024 students are Antonia Castillo, Sid Lilly, Marc Ludwigsen, Zekai Yang, Zeqian Li and Caiyao Zhang.

Lecture | Red Herring: Indigenous Peoples vs Commercial Fisherman


In Sitka, Alaska, Indigenous peoples and commercial fishermen are locked in a fight over one of the last remaining herring fisheries in the North Pacific. Herring is one of the most important fish in the ocean. They feed everything: salmon, whales, seals, sea otters, sea lions, seagulls, eagles, and humans. For coastal Indigenous nations like the Tlingit, Haida, and Tsimshian, herring eggs are a delicacy exchanged and eaten at ceremonial feasts. For the fishing fleet, herring eggs are a valuable commodity sold for top dollar at Japanese markets. Based on a chapter from his forthcoming book, We Survived the Night, writer Julian Brave NoiseCat tells the story of Indigenous technologies, traditions, and movements shaping the future of an ecosystem. Speaker Julian Brave NoiseCat is an Indigenous writer, activist, and policy advocate.

Book Discussion | Between Memory and Invention: My Journey in Architecture (online)


Robert A. M. Stern's newly published autobiography surveys his life and seismic role in the field of architecture from the 1960s to the present. The acclaimed architect talks with Glass House Chief Curator and Creative Director Hilary Lewis about this much-anticipated memoir. By turns thoughtful and irreverent, Stern's candid account highlights the often-overlooked role that an architect's life plays in shaping the buildings they produce. Replete with personal insights and humor, Between Memory and Invention details Stern's youthful efforts to redraw house plans in real estate ads, stories about the many mentors--including Philip Johnson--who have shaped his thinking, his struggle to launch an architecture practice in the 1970s amid a recession, and his more than half-century of practice as an architect, educator, and historian.

Book Discussion | Combat Trauma: Imaginaries of War and Citizenship in Post-9/11 America


Americans have long been asked to support the troops and care for veterans’ psychological wounds. Who, though, does this injunction serve? As acclaimed scholar Nadia Abu El-Haj argues in her new book, in the American public’s imagination, the traumatized soldier stands in for destructive wars abroad, with decisive ramifications in the post-9/11 era. Across the political spectrum the language of soldier trauma is used to discuss American warfare, producing a narrative in which traumatized soldiers are the only acknowledged casualties of war, while those killed by American firepower are largely sidelined and forgotten.

Discussion | What Makes It Italian?: The Harp (online)


"What Makes It Italian?" is a music listening and discussion group that meets online and is open to everyone. The group is led by Gina Crusco, who guides listening at Bard LLI and Riverdale Y, and who has been music instructor at The New School and director of Underworld Productions. The modern concert harp bears little resemblance to its Persian ancestors - except in Viggiano, Basilicata. There you can still find this traveling version of the harp little changed, and being built, played, and taught to young people. Listen to music played by the instruments of Italy - and the vocalists they inspire - visiting regions from Sardinia to the Tyrol. Many of these instruments have been preserved in their early forms by isolated traditional cultures, and only recently have come to light for us to enjoy.

Book Discussion | The Origins of Russian Literary Theory: Folklore, Philology, Form (in-person and online)


Russian Formalism is widely considered the foundation of modern literary theory. Jessica Merrill's book reevaluates the movement in light of the current commitment to rethink the concept of literary form in cultural-historical terms. Jessica Merrill provides a novel reconstruction of the intellectual historical context that enabled the emergence of Formalism in the 1910s. Formalists adopted a mode of thought Merrill calls the philological paradigm, a framework for thinking about language, literature, and folklore that lumped them together as verbal tradition. For those who thought in these terms, verbal tradition was understood to be inseparable from cultural history. Merrill situates early literary theories within this paradigm to reveal abandoned paths in the history of the discipline--ideas that were discounted by the structuralist and post-structuralist accounts that would emerge after World War II.

Book Discussion | The Revolutionary Samuel Adams: A discussion with Putlizer-Prize winning biographer (in person and online)


Pulitzer Prize winner Stacy Schiff sits down to talk about her newest book, The Revolutionary Samuel Adams, the revelatory life story of one of the most essential founding fathers. A signatory to the Declaration of Independence and a mastermind of the Boston Tea Party, today Samuel Adams' reputation rests largely on a muddle of rumors, misinterpretations, and a life story that went mostly unrecorded, particularly by himself. "Most of America's founders became giants after independence," says author Stacy Schiff. "Adams began to shrink...He is the sole signer of the Declaration of Independence to come down to us as an incendiary, and a beer." Schiff's new book seeks to put Adams's life story back together, perhaps for the first time. Stacy Schiff has authored five biographies, including her biography of Vera Nabokov, which won the 2000 Pulitzer Prize in biography. Schiff has also written biographies of French aviator and author of The Little Prince Antoine de Saint-Exupery, colonial American-era polymath and prime mover of America's founding, Benjamin Franklin, ancient Egyptian queen Cleopatra, and the important figures and events of the Salem Witch Trials of 1692-93 in colonial Massachusetts.

Dr. Robyn C. Spencer is a professional historian specializing in the history of the Black freedom movement in the United States, and author of The Revolution has Come: Black Power, Gender and the Black Panther Party.

Lecture | Laughing with Manzoni: Parodies of The Betrothed in Comics and TV


The fortunes and misfortunes of Alessandro Manzoni in Italian culture are tightly related to the writer's place in the national "canon" of literary authors. Imposed onto generations of students in Italian schools, The Betrothed has, for better or for worse, entered Italy's collective imagination. Fruitful insights into the ways in which the most important novel of the Italian literary tradition has informed both high and popular culture come from the numerous parodies that have retold the story of Renzo and Lucia. This conversation will focus on adaptations of The Betrothed into comics and TV, including the Disney parodies and the acclaimed 1990 TV adaptation by the notorious Trio Lopez-Marchesini-Solenghi. Brace yourself for some serious fun.   With: Serena Moscardelli, Ph.D. Candidate in Italian Studies Anita Quero, Ph.D. Candidate in Italian Studies

Lecture | Loss and Modernity


Modern society is based on positive expectations towards the future, above all within the framework of an imperative of progresses. Losses disappoint this narrative of progress, though: losses of status, of meaning, of control or of the belief in the future itself. The result is a paradoxical constellation of losses which is typical of modernity: This society wants to reduce losses and increases them at the same time. It systematically seeks to make experiences of losses invisible and at the same time develops certain forms of 'doing loss' like nostalgia and risk calculation. Not at least in connection with climate change, but also with a general more catastrophic outlook on societal development, in late-modern society, the problem of losses gains an extraordinary prominence. The aim of the presentation by Andreas Reckwitz is to develop an outline of a sociology of loss.

Discussion | Tactile Poetry: Artist Books (online)


A conversation with artists Abby Leigh, Susan Gosin, and Nazanin Noroozi that is an exploration of Leigh and Gosin’s work combining printmaking and hand papermaking in the form of artists’ books. As the inaugural Marabeth Cohen-Tyler Print/Paper Fellow, Nazanin selected two key works dealing with materiality, tactility, and literature: One Evening, (2011) by Abby Leigh, held in the collections of MoMA and the Whitney Museum of Art, and Emily Dickinson, Selected Poems, (1980) by Susan Gosin, held in the collections of Virginia Commonwealth University and University of Michigan. Both books approach the combination of handmade paper, intaglio, and poetry with distinctive artistic perspectives and exceptional craftsmanship. In this webinar, the artists will discuss the creative and collaborative process behind these works, as well as the history of artist’s books at Dieu Donné.

Book Discussion | Inciting Joy: How to Recognize It and Expand on It (online)


Ross Gay on the complexities and beauty of joy, asking how to recognize it--and even more crucially--how to expand it. In an intimate and electrifying collection of essays, Gay considers the joy we incite when we care for each other, especially during life's inevitable hardships. With curiosity and compassion, Gay thinks about the garden as a laboratory of mutual aid, skateboarding's reclamation of public space, the costs of masculinity, and what was healed in caring for his father as he was dying. In this event, we come together to explore the possibility of collective joy and liberation.

Dance Performance | Undulate: Choreography Inspired by Visual Art


A collaborative and responsive new performance work by choreographer Marcia Milhazes amid Mistura Sagrada, a solo exhibition of work by her sister, artist Beatriz Milhazes, on view at the gallery through October 29. Orchestrated in relation to Beatriz Milhazes’s hanging sculpture "Gamboa III" (2022), the event will feature a solo dancer—Domenico Salvatore—with Brazilian modernist music performed by pianist Yuka Shimizu. Gamboa III incorporates various materials inspired by Carnival props, in part reused, including adornments made from acrylic on foam board, textile, plastic, and plexiglass. Featuring allusions to Brazilian context, popular culture and folk traditions—including the political implications of the celebration of Carnival in Brazil—as well as the country’s Tropicália and Bossa Nova musical movements of the late 1960s, Gamboa III follows Gamboa II (2016), which was displayed for four months in the lobby of the Jewish Museum in New York in 2016. Beatriz Milhazes created her first Gamboa installation in 2008 after her work designing sets for her sister’s contemporary dance company. Marcia Milhazes’s choreography will animate "Gamboa III," bringing to life, as she puts it in a new text accompanying the performance, “a unique and distinct system of concrete forms that will enunciate a non-verbal, poetic, organic world.”

Screening | Munz: A Pianist's Story (2022)


This 90-minute documentary highlights the extraordinary life and legacy of the pianist and teacher Mieczyslaw Munz. The film includes archival footage, programs, letters, photos, rare Nazi documentation, and interviews with Ann Schein, Emanuel Ax, Donald Manildi, Anli Lin Tong, Jeffrey Marcus, and others. Born in Krakow, Poland, Mr. Munz studied at the Vienna Academy of Music and Berlin Hochschule fur Musik. He made his solo debut at Aeolian Hall in New York on Oct. 20, 1922. The New York Times review called him "an absorbed artist, under whose hands mere tricks and graces of piano playing fall away as chips from the sculptor's chisel, while he lays bare the larger curves of sustained melody and inner meaning." Masks are required.
