Discussion | International Justice and Accountability for War Crimes in Ukraine (online)


During the war on Ukraine, allegations have been made that the Russian army and government have committed numerous violations of human rights and the laws of war, including indiscriminate attacks on civilians, brutal executions, and forced relocation and re-education of Ukrainian citizens. Some of these atrocities have already been recognized as war crimes by international institutions, but the investigations are still unfolding. A panel of human rights experts and political scientists will discuss what we know about Russia’s transgressions so far, how these crimes can be documented and investigated, and what real options exist for the international community to hold the Russian government and military responsible. Speakers: -- Rachel Denber, Deputy Director of the Europe and Central Asia Division at Human Rights Watch -- Nathaniel Raymond, Executive Director of the Humanitarian Research Lab at the Yale School of Public Health and a Lecturer in the Department of the Epidemiology of Microbial Diseases at Yale University -- Monika Nalepa, Professor of Political Science at the University of Chicago -- Scott Straus, Professor of Political Science at the University of California-Berkeley and the 2023 Mahatma M.K.

Lecture | Samson Schames: Fragments of Exile (online)


In exile, Samson Schames created innovative mosaics from shards of glass, porcelain, and crockery—the material evidence of the bombings. Samson Schames (1898-1967) came from a long-established Jewish family in Frankfurt am Main. With the support of his uncle, renowned gallery owner Ludwig Schames, he made his way into the 1920s art scene and began his training as a painter, graphic artist, and stage designer. Schames’ designs, drawings, and oil paintings from the period up to 1933 testify to his deep connection to Frankfurt and her landscapes. After the National Socialists rose to power, Schames immigrated to London in 1939, where he began creating innovative mosaics from shards of glass, porcelain, and crockery—the material evidence of the bombings. This presentation elaborates on the three important phases of the artist’s life and relates his time in Frankfurt and artistic beginnings to the work he made in British exile and finally to his new home, New York. It also pays tribute to the first temporary exhibition the Jewish Museum Frankfurt showed in 1989. Speaker Annika Friedman has been part of the Jewish Museum Frankfurt team since 2021, initially as curatorial assistance and since 2022 as the curatorial project manager for the permanent exhibition in the Rothschild Palais.

Book Discussion | Time is a Mother by Ocean Vuong


Ocean Vuong's second collection of poetry looks inward, on the aftershocks of his mother's death, and the struggle — and rewards — of staying present in the world. Time Is a Mother moves outward and onward, in concert with the themes of On Earth We're Briefly Gorgeous, as Vuong continues, through his work, his profound exploration of personal trauma, of what it means to be the product of an American war in America, and how to circle these fragmented tragedies to find not a restoration, but the epicenter of the break.

This event will provide an excellent opportunity to re-examine a pivotal moment in energy history, and one that continues to shape policymaking, in manners both subtle and obvious.

Book Discussion | The Cunning of Gender Violence: Geopolitics and Feminism (online)


This book focuses on how a once visionary feminist project has folded itself into contemporary world affairs. Combating violence against women and gender-based violence constitutes a highly visible and powerful agenda enshrined in international governance and law and embedded in state violence and global securitization. Case studies on Palestine, Bangladesh, Iran, India, Pakistan, Israel, and Turkey as well as on UN and US policies trace the silences and omissions, along with the experiences of those subjected to violence, to question the rhetoric that claims the agenda as a “feminist success story.” Because religion and racialized ethnicity, particularly “the Muslim question,” run so deeply through the institutional structures of the agenda, the contributions explore ways it may be affirming or enabling rationales and systems of power, including civilizational hierarchies, that harm the very people it seeks to protect.

Talk | Jazz Goes to Bollywood


In the late 1950s, a period acknowledged as the Golden Era of Hindi film music, Bollywood songs were enlivened by a rather unusual influence: jazz. This presentation will recall how a group of journeymen jazz musicians fleeing racism in the U.S. in the 1930s gave India a taste for hot music, and how these syncopated sounds found their way into the Hindi film studios. It will also explore how political ideas traveled the other way, as African Americans sought Gandhi’s advice on their political struggles.
