Discussion | Between U.S. Race Theory and French Republican Ideals (online)


As she settles in France after nearly two decades working in the U.S., the Caribbean, and elsewhere, curator Claire Tancons wonders how France’s foundational Republican ideals and contemporary multicultural experience rub against each other through the lens of American race theory and identity politics—recently demonized by factions within France’s higher education system and at the upper levels of the Republic itself. Nadia Yala Kisukidi is a French philosopher and a curator of the 2021 Yango Biennale in Kinshasa who has examined the colonial implications of “blackness” in France and Europe. What can the U.S. and France learn from each other about the philosophical, cultural and institutional challenges of race and identity today?

Author Reading | Sandfuture: Life of a Great Architect (livestream)


Justin Beal's new book is an account of the life and work of the architect Minoru Yamasaki (1912–1986), who remains on the margins of history despite the enormous influence of his work on American architecture and society. That Yamasaki's most famous projects—the Pruitt-Igoe apartments in St. Louis and the original World Trade Center in New York—were both destroyed on national television, thirty years apart, makes his relative obscurity all the more remarkable.
