Film | Girl with the Pearl Earring (2003): With Scarlett Johansson and Colin Firth (online, streaming for 24 hours)


Delft, Holland 1665. Seventeen-year-old Griet must work to support her family and becomes a maid in the house of Johannes Vermeer, where she gradually attracts the master painter's attention. Johannes and Griet must hide their inspiration of each other from his volatile wife Catharina. The wealthy and troublemaking Master van Ruijven senses the intimacy between the artist and his maid and contrives a commission for Vermeer to paint Griet alone. The result will be one of the greatest paintings ever created, but at what cost? Directed by Peter Webber.

Discussion | Drones and the Bird’s-Eye View (online)


Many technologies we use in our everyday lives were first developed for the military. Even those as ubiquitous as computers and the internet were born from military applications and communication protocols. Drones are no different. Aerial surveillance has been a boon to military intelligence from the earliest aircraft. This technology has made its way from the military to commercial and domestic sectors, even finding humanitarian purposes. The three speakers on this panel approach drones through very different lenses: art, philosophy of science and technology, and aerospace curation and education. The seminar examines the technical and human protocols that informed the early development of drones and how they have co-evolved with commercial and household technologies since their advent.

Discussion | The Trials of D.H. Lawrence: Award-Winning Biographer Talks About her Book (online)


In Burning Man: The Trials of D.H. Lawrence, critic, journalist, and author Frances Wilson offers a less familiar version of Lawrence, both as a man and as a writer. She discusses her book with Professor of the Arts at Johns Hopkins University and former UK poet laureate Andrew Motion.  Regarded as one of the most influential writers of the 20th century, D.H. Lawrence (1885-1930) wrote novels, short stories, poems, plays, essays, and letters. His most known works are Sons and Lovers (1913), The Rainbow (1915), and Women in Love (1920). In his lifetime he has endured persecution, censorship, and misrepresentation of his creative work. His infamous Lady Chatterley's Lover (1928), graphic and highly sexual novel, was banned in the United States until 1959, and in England until 1960.

Discussion | The Next Wave: Feminism in a Post-#MeToo World (online)


It has been almost four years since the #MeToo movement surged into public consciousness and kick-started a reckoning that has changed both the fabric of people’s day-to-day lives, and the culture at large. In the intervening years, conversations around gender equality have become more vital than ever, but the way forward has become less clear. Is the #MeToo movement one that can encompass the vast complexity of human relationships, the experiences of women globally, and include people from all backgrounds? What, in other words, does the #MeToo movement look like now, and how can it carry the fight for gender equality into the future?
