Lecture | ‘Death Cannot Make Our Souls Afraid’: 19th Century Mourning Customs (online)


Grief was more than just an emotion for Americans during the 19th century — it was a way of life. The moment Seabury Tredwell drew his last breath, in March 1865, his family put into motion an elaborate system of mourning customs that both announced their grief to the community and provided some measure of release from their suffering. Museum Historian Ann Haddad explores the origins and significance of these somber yet comforting rituals, from widows’ weeds and crepe-draped mirrors to corpse coolers and funeral biscuits.

Lecture | The Trouble with Simples: Venetian Drugs in the 18th Century


Speaker Mackenzie Cooley traces efforts to create a standardized list of Venetian drugs in the 18th century. While contemporaries worried about the health and wealth of nations, the Enlightenment polymath Professor Simone Stratico (1733-1824) sought to make a uniquely Venetian pharmacopeia—an official list of medicinal drugs—specifically tailored to the health of La Serenissima. According to Stratico and his academic collaborators, the canals that had once transported the spices at the center of the medieval and early modern medical trade had become saturated with local apothecaries who had reputations for price gauging, quackery, and even heresy. Using the late eighteenth-century manuscript collection “Studies for a Venetian Pharmacopeia” from the Biblioteca Marciana, this talk follows Stratico’s attempt to welcome university experts in medicine, surgery, and chemistry to the process of creating a standardized list of Venetian drugs. In so doing, Stratico, born into the Venetian empire, whittled down the world’s pharmacological wonders to a medical vocabulary for it, including natural products with plant, animal, or mineral origins. However, the process was more challenging than he thought. What, after all, was the medically useful part of a plant? How might, say, a stem, be standardized and measured either by volume or potency? The deeper Stratico looked, the more befuddling the quagmire of uncertainty. Through Stratico’s extensive unpublished writing and editorial choices, this talk will parse the challenges of an eighteenth-century moment focused on standardization, the intertwining of natural history and drug discovery, and the use of symbols to represent substances. Mackenzie Cooley is Assistant Professor of History at Hamilton College.

Book Discussion | Red Sauce: How Italian Food Became American by Ian MacAllen


Author Ian MacAllen sits down with Jennifer Prezioso to discuss his book Red Sauce, which tells the story of Italian food arriving in the United States and how your favorite "red sauce" recipes evolved into American staples. In Red Sauce, Ian MacAllen traces the evolution of traditional Italian-American cuisine, often referred to as "red sauce Italian," from its origins in Italy to its transformation in America into a new, distinct cuisine. It is a fascinating social and culinary history exploring the integration of red sauce food into mainstream America alongside the blending of Italian immigrant otherness into a national American identity. The story follows the small parlor restaurants immigrants launched from their homes to large, popular destinations, and eventually to commodified fast food and casual dining restaurants. Some dishes like fettuccine Alfredo and spaghetti alla Caruso owe their success to celebrities, and Italian-American cuisine generally has benefited from a rich history in popular culture. At this event, MacAllen and Jennifer Prezioso will discuss how and why these foods became part of the national American diet, and focus on the stories, myths, and facts behind classic (and some not so classic) dishes within Italian-American cuisine.

Book Discussion | The Chieftain and the Chair: The Rise of Danish Design in Postwar America


Today, Danish Modern design is synonymous with clean, midcentury cool. During the 1950s and ’60s, it flourished as the furniture choice for Americans who hoped to signal they were current and chic. But how did this happen? How did Danish Modern become the design movement of the times? This is a talk with Maggie Taft on her book which tells the tale of our love affair with Danish Modern design. Structured as a biography of two iconic chairs—Finn Juhl’s Chieftain Chair and Hans Wegner’s Round Chair, both designed and first fabricated in 1949—this book follows the chairs from conception and fabrication through marketing, distribution, and use.

Book Discussion | The Girl from Wudang: A Novel About Artificial Intelligence, Martial Arts and Immortality by Emmy Winner PJ Caldas


Book launch/author talk event with Emmy Award Winner PJ Caldas! Caldas will be celebrating the launch of his debut novel, The Girl from Wudang: A Novel About Artificial Intelligence, Martial Arts and Immortality.  Yinyin, called Tigress, was raised in the sacred mountains of Wudang, where her life was about Tai Chi, the Dao, and trying to balance her yang with yin. Artificial intelligence and neuroscience were things she'd never even heard of. But then her overpowering yang sets her on a course to the Bay Area to become a professional fighter. For as long as she could remember, Yinyin had been told she was poised to become part of something big, but what "big" turned out to be was beyond her imagining: a scientific experiment that would allow her to connect her brain to a thing they called "Brainternet" and become unbeatable. Bonus: the suicidal headaches that had plagued her all her life would cease. But nothing comes without a price, and this connection would give others access to family secrets Yinyin has sworn to protect. Secrets that, at large and in the wrong hands, could be a very dangerous thing.

Performance | Truth to Power Cafe: A Performance of Memoir, Image, Film, Poetry, Music and Stories


From Adelaide to Zagreb and now in New York for its U.S. premiere, Jeremy Goldstein's Truth to Power Cafe is a profound theatrical reflection on loss, hope, and resistance. This inspirational performance event is told through memoir, image, film, poetry, music, and true and authentic stories in response to the question: 'who has power over you and what do you want to say to them?' Speaking truth to power is a non-violent means of conflict resolution, the origins of which lie in the anti-war movement. Is it to your parents, a sibling, politician, landlord, neighbor, banker, boss, or simply your best friend? It's time to tell them the truth before it's too late. Truth to Power Cafe is inspired by the political and philosophical beliefs of Nobel Prize-winning playwright Harold Pinter and his inner circle "The Hackney Gang", which included Cafe creator Jeremy Goldstein's late father, Mick Goldstein, and poet and actor Henry Woolf. Created, written, and performed by Jeremy Goldstein with Henry Woolf Directed by Jen Heyes Associate Director, Anne-Louise Rentell Banners, Ed Hall Lighting, Nigel Edwards Video, Conor MacMahon
