Heimbold Visual Arts Center Donnelley Film Theatre

Open to the public

/ Saturday

8:30am-5:00pm Add to calendar

Events in the past decade seem to indicate that democracy in many parts of the world is in peril. In the United States, voter ID laws and extra legal tactics work to suppress voter turnout and political actors make decisions based on what might effect their re-election rather than what is best for their country. American distrust of government, and a growing sense of white resentment have widened divisions among an already fractured electorate, while racism and xenophobia seem to be growing. Moreover, Russian hackers appear to have weaponized racism in a way that affected the outcome of the US elections.

Science Seminar Series—Nick Rauh Lecture: Finding Simple Solutions

Science Center 103

Open to the public

/ Tuesday

12:35pm-1:35pm Add to calendar

Suppose we manage to find a solution to an equation. Is it the “simplest” solution we could have found? For example, we might note that x = 374 is a solution to x^3 - 587x^2 + 80084x - 157828, but if we think even less hard about it, so is x = 2. Sometimes "small" is what we mean by “simple,” but sometimes we need of notion of “simple” with a little more oomph. (Are 1/7 or sqrt(2)-1 simpler than 1? They're smaller!) In this talk, we'll see some of analytic number theory's tools for finding “simple” solutions to Diophantine equations.

The Inaugural Year: Jeremi Suri Lecture—The Impossible Presidency: The Rise and Fall of America's Highest Office

Heimbold Visual Arts Center 208

Open to the public

/ Friday

12:30pm-2:00pm Add to calendar

Celebrated historian Jeremi Suri will discuss the rise and fall of the American presidency, from the limited role envisaged by the Founding Fathers to its current status as the most powerful job in the world. He will argue that the presidency is a victim of its own success—the vastness of the job makes it almost impossible to fulfill the expectations placed upon it. As managers of the world's largest economy and military, contemporary presidents must react to a truly globalized world in a twenty-four-hour news cycle. There is little room left for bold vision. This lecture is based on Professor Suri's recently released book, The Impossible Presidency: The Rise and Fall of America's Highest Office, which is a masterful reassessment of presidential history and essential reading for anyone trying to understand America's fraught political climate.

J. Mae Barizo Craft Talk—Why Words Matter

Slonim Living Room / Stone Room

Open to the public

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

How do we as writers reckon with the violence and injustice inherent in our society? Exploring the artistic landscape of writers such as James Baldwin, Theresa Hak Kyung Cha, Claudia Rankine, and others, we will discuss a model of how one can balance strong ethical convictions with work that represents racial tensions, dislocation and cruelty. How do writers come to terms with the world we live in? Studying how writers translate violence and inequality in their work, we’ll address methods of erasure, decolonization, and the fragmentation of memory. Audre Lorde wrote: “Poetry is how we name the nameless. It forms the quality of the light within which we predicate our hopes and dreams toward survival and change.”

It is a piece widely regarded today as a masterpiece of the 20th century repertoire. The film includes Schoenberg's children Nuria, Ronald, and Lawrence, relating memories of their father, and concludes with a complete performance of the String Trio, filmed at Schoenberg's Los Angeles home.

Alejandro Satz Lecture—Black Hole Entropy and Quantum Entanglement (Science Seminar Series)

Science Center 103

Open to the public

12:35pm-1:35pm Add to calendar

Black holes are regions where the warping of space and time, as described by Einstein's General Relativity, becomes so intense that light is unable to escape and the region is cut off from the rest of the universe. Many predictions of gravitational physics about black holes were spectacularly confirmed by LIGO's detection of gravitational waves from black hole mergers, which was awarded the 2017 Physics Nobel Prize. In this talk, Alejandro Satz will give a summary of our current understanding of black holes, focusing especially on Stephen Hawking's prediction that black holes have thermal properties which include an entropy proportional to their surface area. He will also explain why black hole entropy is a key clue for building a theory of quantum gravity, and describe some recent research in which we make progress by clarifying the connection between black hole entropy and quantum entanglement entropy.

3D Screening of The Flavor Genome and Q&A with Anicka Yi

Heimbold Visual Arts Center Donnelley Film Theatre

Open to the public

/ Thursday

5:15pm-6:45pm Add to calendar

Anicka Yi's film, The Flavor Genome (2016, single-channel 3D video, 22 min.), is a techno sensual journey into the unexplored threshold of adaptation, mutation, and hybridization of living organisms. Shot on 3D video, this film complicates technological obsolescence in contemporary visuality by deploying both 3D video and 3D animation systems. Set in the Amazon rainforest and renegade laboratories, the narrative is told through a commercial flavorist who is on the hunt for a mythical orchid which has miraculous properties in the jungles of the Amazon. Events go awry in the jungle as scientific procedures attempt to merge with unforeseen realities leading to unimaginable sensorial outcomes. Under the conceptual premise of the “flavor genome,” the video performs a mapping of perceptual worlds, taking reality as matrices of perceived unique essences which could enable the potential for bio diverse intelligence sharing.

Stephen Snyder Lecture—Being Yoko Ogawa: Translation and Authority (Babel Translation Lecture Series)

Titsworth Marjorie Leff Miller ’53 Lecture Hall

Open to the public

/ Tuesday

5:30pm-7:00pm Add to calendar

Yoko Ogawa is one of Japan’s most popular and critically acclaimed writers, and her work in English translation has appeared in The New Yorker and Harper’s. This success has resulted in invitations to the New Yorker Festival, the PEN World Voices Festival, and to numerous other literary prize ceremonies and university campuses—all of which Ogawa has declined. This talk examines the experiences of a translator asked to “speak for” a writer and the ways in which this act parallels and shapes the act of literary translation in the context of the commercial publishing industry. Who and what forces determine the nature of the “original”? What gives a translator “authority” to speak? How do commercial forces and aesthetic standards interact to shape—or deform—the “foreign” text? And what is the role of the translator in negotiating the conflict between foreignizing and domesticating practices in translation? This talk is based on ethnographic research in the Japanese and US publishing industries and examines the careers of Ogawa and Haruki Murakami in English translation.

Science Seminar Series—Evolution of Suspensory Locomotion in the Apes: Evidence from Behavioral and Paleontological Data

Science Center 103

Open to the public

/ Tuesday

12:35pm-1:35pm Add to calendar

The living apes practice one of the most unique locomotor behaviors of any mammal: suspension and brachiation. The set of skeletal modifications that allow this bizarre locomotor mode lay the foundation for the even less common bipedalism of humans. But how did these suspensory adaptations originate and are they as distinctive as we think? A survey of behavioral studies and the the fossil record suggests not. One fossil taxon in particular is key to addressing the origins of suspensory locomotion, as it may represent the earliest know ape: Proconsul. Results from a phylogenetic analysis of 816 morphological characters indicates that Proconsul is a hominoid, while phenetic analyses suggest a locomotor mode incorporating a range of behaviors more similar to the locomotor style of new world monkeys than to either the living apes or their sister taxon, the old world monkeys.

Stephanie Campos Lecture—Small Village, Large Hell: Examining the Incarceration of Women in Lima, Peru through an Intersectional Framework (Women's History Colloquium)

Slonim Living Room / Stone Room

Open to the public

/ Thursday

6:00pm-8:00pm Add to calendar

Using an intersectional framework, this presentation will explore how the Santa Monica prison in Lima, Peru reflects and reproduces hierarchies of race, class, gender, and citizenship. Life history interviews with incarcerated women demonstrates how structural inequalities influenced their entrance into the illicit drug market and subsequent imprisonment. In addition, prisoners competed for scarce resources and privileges. Those with access to advantageous and valued economic, racial, gender, and national positionalities benefited over prisoners. This work also argues that women’s labor is the linchpin between drug trafficking and prison and that the drug trade and the prison in Peru are two parts of a symbiotic whole. This research contributes to a critical questioning of the prison as an adequate response to economic and political insecurity and crisis, a situation not created by those most negatively affected by it.

Jesse Horst Lecture—Slum Clearance, the Cuban Revolution of 1959, and Dilemmas from Post-Obama Havana

Titsworth Marjorie Leff Miller ’53 Lecture Hall

Open to the public

/ Thursday

5:30pm-7:00pm Add to calendar

This talk challenges prevailing narratives of the Cuban Revolution by exploring the subterranean dynamics of policies towards shantytown communities in Havana—and it considers the significance of this challenge in light of the present day. As government officials sought to relocate sites of informal housing in the 1950s, shantytown leaders organized protests, pressuring officials to generate social welfare initiatives. Although they offered many benefits, these initiatives also silenced local activists. The policies of the 1959 Revolution and the silence that followed grew from precisely this compromise. As urban poverty has reemerged in 21st century Havana, we will reflect on the meaning of this history amid the volatile currents of US-Cuban relations following Barack Obama’s unprecedented opening.

Miller Oberman Craft Talk—Writing in the Ruins: The Poet as Translator

Slonim Living Room / Stone Room

Open to the public

/ Thursday

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

As a poet who is an extremely streaky writer, working on translations of the first poems written in Old English has often saved Miller Oberman from making nothing for long stretches of time. For him, translation is a conversation that moves back and forth through time and space, accruing meaning as it goes, and this talk is about how studying these poems has deeply influenced his own. He plans to talk about two fragmented Old English poems, "The Ruin," and "Wulf and Eadwacer," and will offer multiple translations of each.

Slonim Living Room / Stone Room

We'll discuss the context from which the lyric essay arises and subjects that lend themselves well to the form. By analyzing successful models and exploring the contours, elements, and language of the lyric essay, we'll come to a deeper understanding of its purposes and pleasures.

What drives the writer of personal narrative is often an impulse to speak where there has been silence. Early drafts may be guided by intuition, a gravitational pull towards what lies unresolved. And yet sooner or later, the work requires structure. This talk will address the process of finding a structure that isn’t merely an organizing principle, but rather calls forth theme and stakes, and how considering structure can help the writer crack through to deeper, riskier layers of meaning.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Painter Matthew F Fisher lives and works in Brooklyn, NY and Los Angeles, CA. He has been the recipient of numerous residencies and awards including the Pollock Krasner Foundation Grant (2016), Yaddo, Saratoga Springs, New York (2015, 2007) and the New York Foundation for the Arts (2010). Recent solo exhibitions include Taymore Grahne Gallery, New York, NY, and One River, Englewood, NJ (2017), Airlock Gallery, San Marco, CA (2016), and Sardine, Brooklyn, NY (2015). Recent group shows include The Dot Project, London, UK (2017), Work Release, Norfolk, VA (2017), Ampersand Gallery, Portland, OR (2017). The works in the exhibit, says the artist, are images of a moment, or maybe several, that have happened or will. Or maybe not. They're not magical, they're not superficial or surreal. Rather they are once in a life time, action frozen just at the right instant so that everything lines up with the edge of the canvas or other elements within the painting. They are paintings heavily indebted to history, he thinks that's more important than the idea of the future, but they are also free of history by being futuristic. Our location, right then and there is transformed into something special. Our cosmic placement, both in space, time, and on this earth, was the exact reason why we saw what we see.
