Gallery Talk | CANCELLED!!! American Perspectives: Stories from the American Folk Art Museum Collection: Exhibition Tour


Everyone has a story to tell--a life lived, witness to and participant in events both private and shared. Such moments are captured by American folk and self-taught artists in powerful visual narratives that offer firsthand testimony to chapters in the unfolding story of America from its inception to the present. American Perspectives: Stories from the American Folk Art Museum Collection showcases more than seventy stellar works of folk and self-taught art from the museum's premier collection. Beautiful, diverse, and truthful, the art illuminates the thoughts and experiences of individuals with an immediacy that is palpable and unique to these expressions. The artworks are organized into four sections--Founders, Travelers, Philosophers, and Seekers--that respond to such themes as nationhood, freedom, community, imagination, opportunity, and legacy. Evocative visual juxtapositions and accessible contextual information further reveal the vital role that folk art plays as a witness to history, carrier of cultural heritage, and a reflection of the world at large through the eyes, heart, and mind of the artist.

Lecture | !!!CANCELLED!!! Neither a "Victory" nor a "Betrayal": Political Struggle and National Identity in Ukraine Since 2014


Volodymyr Zelensky's landslide victory in Ukraine's 2019 presidential election evoked the most opposite kinds of comments, ranging from highly enthusiastic to thoroughly apocalyptic. One line of argumentation maintains that the victory manifests, among other good things, the advance of a new type of Ukrainian identity and a gradual overcoming of traditional regional cleavages. The opposite view tends to consider it as a total defeat of the state-nation building project that was ushered in by the Revolution of Dignity and the defense against Russian aggression over the past five years. However tempting and often suitable it might be to conceptualize the Ukrainian elections as a competition of two different projects of state-nation building and, ultimately, of two different types of Ukrainian identity, this presentation will argue that there are many more factors that determine the preferences of Ukrainian voters, and that some of them--like the need for a large-scale catching-up in the modernization of Ukrainian society--are playing an increasingly decisive role. Speaker: Mykola Riabchuk (Academy of Sciences of Ukraine; University of Warsaw; Ukrainian Catholic University in Lviv).

Conference | !!! CANCELLED !!! Responses in Music to Climate Change


The deleterious effects of anthropogenic climate change continue to shape music making in a post-industrial, global society. Indigenous communities--those typically least responsible for the carbon emissions that have contributed to global warming--face the elimination or depletion of natural resources necessary for their musical practices and traditions. Composers of art music, many compelled to bear witness to our current times and bring awareness to threatened ecosystems, draw sound material from endangered environmental sources. Popular music, too, continues to respond through concerts, songs that thematize the environment, and celebrity endorsements for protection measures. Across all forms of music making, discourses of preservation, sustainability, visibility, and action are pervasive. With the aim of collecting and sharing research on music's place within the context of anthropogenic climate change, this conference welcomes contributions from a broad range of disciplines.

Lecture | Laboratory of the Future: Lenin's Body Between Biochemistry and Art


The Soviet sovereign project was organized around the figure of “Leninism”— the discursive and material construct that consisted of Lenin’s texts and quotes, images and sculptures, and Lenin’s physical body in the Mausoleum. As the center of Sovereignty, “Leninism” was constant and eternal; it was the only body of knowledge that could not be questioned or transcended within the Soviet political discourse. In fact, however, to remain “the same” Leninism was continuously changed and reinvented throughout the Soviet history. Leninist texts were censored and misquoted, Leninist images were re-edited and retouched, and Lenin’s physical body in the Mausoleum was continuously resculpted and restored with the help of biochemical and artistic techniques. This talk focuses on the sovereign center of the Soviet communist project through the prism of the scientific, artistic and discursive practices that have been mobilized to maintain and transform the Leninist body for the past 96 years. Speaker Alexei Yurchak is Professor of Anthropology at the University of California, Berkeley.

Talk | The Work of the Humanities in the Financial University: Crisis, Closure and a Market Correction


This talk will consider the role of the humanities in undergirding  the non-profit character and status of the university in the early twenty-first century, a designation that has become crucial for universities' specific form of capital accumulation. Reviewing contemporary fiscal crises, the so-called "crisis of the humanities," and recent college closures, I will argue that the humanities play a dual role in the  contemporary university: they both make money for universities and ground the discourse of losing it.   Speaker Leigh Claire La Berge is an Associate Professor of English at BMCC CUNY.

Lecture | “We Will Carry the Legless and Feed the Armless”: The Ukrainian Community and Disabled Veterans of the Galician Army


After World War I, the majority of Western European, Central European and North American countries established social security programs to provide assistance to disabled demobilized soldiers. However, the Polish Invalid Act of 1921 excluded disabled veterans of the Ukrainian Galician army from the newly established welfare system, as they were soldiers who had fought against the Polish state. They were left without the government’s financial support and the dominant Polish narrative described them as enemies of the state. The Lviv intelligentsia constructed the Ukrainian national narrative and the notion of “the Ukrainian war invalid” by establishing a system of assistance to disabled soldiers of the Galician army. Through the examination of the interaction between the Ukrainian Association for Aid to Disabled Soldiers and the authorities, Oksana Vynnyk analyzes the nuanced aspects of the relationships between government and Ukrainian civil society and shows that these relationships were an important aspect of state-building in interwar Poland. Speaker Oksana Vynnyk worked as an editorial assistant at Canadian Slavonic Papers, the journal of the Canadian Association of Slavists.

Tymofii Brik, Assistant Professor at the Kyiv School of Economics and Fulbright Scholar at New York University, asks whether religious pluralism can predict the level of church attendance in a region, and whether it can shape electoral behavior. Employing a sociological framework of "religious supply theory" and using a variety of statistical models, Brik analyzes the consequences of religious change in all regions of Ukraine from 1992 to 2018.

Lecture | CANCELLED***Civil War Logistics: A Study of Military Transportation***CANCELLED


***THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED*** During the Civil War, neither the Union nor the Confederate army could have operated without effective transportation systems. Moving men, supplies, and equipment required coordination on a massive scale, and Earl J. Hess's book offers the first comprehensive analysis of this vital process. Utilizing an enormous array of reports, dispatches, and personal accounts by quartermasters involved in transporting war materials, Hess reveals how each conveyance system operated as well as the degree to which both armies accomplished their logistical goals.
