Stephen O'Connor Craft Talk—Dream Logic: Kafka's “A Country Doctor”

Slonim Living Room / Stone Room

Open to the public

/ Thursday

2:00pm-3:00pm Add to calendar

“A Country Doctor,” the title story of one of the only two books Kafka published during his lifetime, has been dismissed by some critics as “a dream,” which is to say: as an unmitigated outpouring of the author’s unconscious. In fact, this fast paced and richly evocative story is a carefully calibrated construction that plays conventional plot elements against one another in order to deliver both protagonist and reader to a moment in which “meaning” emerges out of the complex interaction of suggestive, but ultimately imponderable images. Stephen O’Connor will do a close reading of the story, focusing on the relationship between its conventional elements and “dream logic.” He will also touch on the profound influence “A Country Doctor” has had on his own work.

Keetje Kuipers Craft Talk—Beyond the Precious Self: Publishing Your Failed Poem

Slonim Living Room / Stone Room

Open to the public

/ Tuesday

2:00pm-3:00pm Add to calendar

Teachers of the craft of poetry often instruct their students to take risks on the page, encouraging wildness of language, innovation in form, and even excavation of the dangerously personal. And, because these elements are praised in poetry, their pursuit often garners admiration. But what if our goal were not to be admired but reviled? Risking the sanctity of self and the potential revulsion of our readers might yield poems that, though fatally flawed, could catapult vital conversations forward, both within and without our insular community of writers.

The Inaugural Year: Emily Katz Anhalt Lecture—Enraged: Why Violent Times Need Ancient Greek Myths

Library Meeting Room aka Pillow Room

Open to the public

/ Tuesday

6:30pm-8:30pm Add to calendar

In this lecture based on her new book, Enraged: Why Violent Times Need Ancient Greek Myths, classics faculty member Emily Katz Anhalt reveals how three masterworks of classical Greek literature can teach us, as they taught the ancient Greeks, to recognize violent revenge as a marker of illogical thinking and poor leadership. Rage may be a natural reaction to insult, injury, or injustice, but Homer, Euripides, and Sophocles demonstrate the foolishness of celebrating those who indulge in violent rage. These time-honored texts emphasize the costs of our dangerous penchant for glorifying violent rage and those who would indulge in it. By promoting compassion, rational thought, and debate, Greek myths help to arm us against the tyrants we might serve and the tyrants we might become. Light refreshments will be served. Copies of Enraged: Why Violent Times Need Ancient Greek Myths will be available for sale.

Adelle Waldman Craft Talk—Dealing with Rejection: A Writer's Guide

Slonim Living Room / Stone Room

Open to the public

/ Wednesday

2:00pm-3:00pm Add to calendar

As an unpublished fiction writer in her twenties, it was easy for Adelle Waldman to imagine that well-known fiction writers had been anointed from their earliest youth and had never suffered through years of self-doubt, doubt from others (parents, friends) and, yes, rejection. Now knowing that's not the case, she still believes writers should talk about this more. In this craft talk, Waldman will talk candidly about having her first novel rejected by every publisher in town, an experience that seemed devastating at the time—but which later came to seem like a piece of good fortune because it paved the way for her to write a better novel. More importantly than her own story, though, is a truth she'd like to impress on everyone: how well one endures rejection is, she believes, one of the key distinguishing characteristics between successful writers and those who give up. We should put as much care into learning how to handle rejection constructively—avoiding both the extremes of rage at the one doing the rejecting on the one hand and despair/self-loathing on the other extreme—as we put into making the finest sentences possible.

Trans Europe Migration: Following the Refugees' Trail Photography Exhibit Opening with Guest Speaker Sana Mustafa, Syrian Refugee & Activist

Library Meeting Room aka Pillow Room

Open to the public

/ Wednesday

3:30pm-5:00pm Add to calendar

In 2015, the number of migrants and refugees reaching Europe reached an unprecedented peak, with more than one million people arriving in Greece and Italy from Turkey and Libya. In October 2015, photographer Rocco Rorandelli was assigned by Vanity Fair to cover the crisis along the "Balkan Route," using aerial imaging. This unique point of view provides an interesting perspective on the issues, detaching the viewer from single individuals and showing the phenomenon as a universal human trait.
