Rachel Eliza Griffiths – A Frame of Forms: Poems, Pictures, Prose

Virtual Online

Open to the public

/ Wednesday

At present, this talk will explore how risks can happen across genres and how such risks ––in one’s creative process and one’s identity––can serve as catalysts for thinking intimately about how voice and narrative engage us. Whether by stanza, sentence, or shutter speed, I’m interested in what is at stake for both author and audience when we are met by interdisciplinary experimentation. I’d like us to think about the relationship between text and images in this contemporary world and how this relationship has functioned historically in our own creative practices. I’ll try to encourage us all to think about how we see, and are seen, and how cultivating mindful attention to one’s inner life, and the politics of visibility beyond our own bodies, is a power that we deserve. There is also ever the notion of wonder, as a frame and form and voice, and how it confronts us in grief, joy, desire, and imagination. Perhaps wonder itself is what leads us to the edge of our pages and lives. Perhaps then we leap. Why do we leap and how can we craft our flight across genres?

Exhibit: Saved from Drowning by Dan Hurlin

Heimbold Visual Arts Center Heimbold Gallery

Not open to the public

“In Donald Barthelme’s seminal 1968 Robert Kennedy Saved from Drowning, a narrator suddenly appears out of nowhere in the very last section of the short story and throws a rope out to the main character ‘K,’ who is close to being pulled under in a turbulent sea. With one end of the rope around his waist, the narrator braces himself against a rock and pulls ‘K’ out of the water, saving him from drowning.

“Like the narrator, I have spent my career as an artist dragging narratives to the shore, rescuing them from oblivion – saving them from being drowned in an ocean of both cultural and personal amnesia.” —Dan Hurlin

Gerda Lerner Lecture Series: “Refuse to Run Away”: Challenging Transsexuality’s “Unwritten Rule”, 1971-1980

Off Campus Online

Open to the public

/ Thursday

In 2014, Time announced that the United States had reached a “Transgender Tipping Point” whereby a newfound media visibility of trans women of color such as Laverne Cox and Janet Mock would pave the way for an unceasingly bright future for trans and gender diverse people. In the five years since that article was released, however, the Trump Administration and several conservative state governments have rolled back legislative protections for trans people in schools, the military, housing, public accommodations, prisons, bureaucratic identification, and employment. How can history help to contextualize and explain this turn of events? What lessons can we learn about women’s activism by looking to historical struggles?

Dangerous “Passing”: Addie Hunton and Black Women’s Fight Against Disfranchisement in 1920s Virginia (Women's History Colloquium)

SLON Combo

Open to the public

/ Thursday

In late October 1920, investigator Addie Hunton “hurr[ied] along” her report to NAACP chair Mary White Ovington. With only days to go before the November presidential election, there was no time to spare. The Nineteenth Amendment was now on the books, but registrars in Norfolk, Virginia were refusing Black women who tried to register to vote. These women feared white reprisals if they challenged the officials, yet they freely told their stories of rejection and humiliation to Hunton, an NAACP representative who had traveled in from New York and who spent less than 48 hours in town. Why did they share such dangerous stories with a total stranger? Liette Gidlow unwinds this mystery by delving deep into the archives to explore the many ways African American women in the Jim Crow South fought for voting rights after the Nineteenth Amendment was ratified. Her research finds that while a great many southern Black women were indeed disfranchised, a surprising number in fact succeeded in voting, and their successes, together with ceaseless agitation by those who remained disfranchised, transformed American politics for the next hundred years and ultimately helped elect Barack Obama, the nation’s first African American president.

Photo of bronze sculpture entitled 'Charioteer' by Sarah PetersSarah Peters' sculptures draw from diverse iconographic influences: from Assyrian antiquities, Greco-Roman tragedy masks, Egyptian funerary figures, and Cypriotic portraits to early American folk art and early modernist figuration. Imagery of sex dolls, ventriloquist dummies, robots and aliens also come into play. Referencing antiquity and using the imagery of gods in a contemporary context enables her to explore themes ranging from power and authority to gender and psychology and allows her to question the politics of power and the authority of historical tradition.

Big Data vs. Reading a Paper, Approaches to Discovering New Cancer Drugs (Science Seminar Series)

Science Center 103

Open to the public

/ Tuesday

Our laboratory studies transcriptional regulation that governs the interaction between viral infection and the development of cancer. In doing so, we can identify protein regulators of genome organization and chromatin essential for cellular immortalization. This basic science forms the foundation for our translational approaches using small molecule inhibitors as potential interventions against virus-associated cancer. Basically, we study large data sets to connect changes in gene regulation with proteins that may ultimately be the target of novel therapeutic strategies. This sometimes works. More often than not, the approach usually fails. Sometimes, however, we ignore big data and discover new treatments by reading a single paper and connecting basic concepts. We’ll discuss examples of both approaches to discovering new cancer drugs.

Science Seminar Series: Hear, here? The what and where of Northern saw-whet owl auditory processing: a lecture by Dr. Megan Gall, Vassar College

Science Center 103

Open to the public

/ Tuesday

You've probably heard that owls have fantastic hearing, both in terms of detecting and localizing sound. However, we have surprisingly little comparative data on owl hearing, with most of the information coming from barn owls. In this talk I will discuss our recent work on the (very cute and fairly small) Northern saw-whet owls (Aegolius acadicus). We'll cover the morphological specializations of saw-whet ears; their ability to detect and process sounds that differ in frequency, rate, and onset; and how the location of the sound source in space affects their auditory sensitivity. Come learn about all the auditory specializations these little owls have that allow them to hunt in complete darkness!

Kenneth Tam: The Glass Ceiling (Gallery Exhibition)

Heimbold Visual Arts Center Heimbold Gallery

Open to the public

Kenneth Tam is a Brooklyn-based artist born in Queens, NY. His work often takes the form of video and sculpture and it's interested in reimagining the spaces and rituals that inform ideas about the male body and its performance. The work looks at ways in which hegemonic and normative forms of male subjectivity can be rearticulated to reveal spaces of intimacy vulnerability and even loss.

So Far to Leeward: Eliza Moore’s Circuitous Paths to Freedom in the Caribbean

Natasha Lightfoot explores the late 1830s freedom petitions of Eliza Moore, an Antiguan-born domestic who strategically utilized the news of abolition’s 1834 passage in the British Caribbean to facilitate her self-emancipation from the Danish Caribbean. That slender archive, and particularly Moore’s representation of her experiences in a singular self-authored letter to her sister raises intriguing questions about enslaved black mobility coincident with but not within the transatlantic slave trade; and the particular forms of exploitation at work in women’s enslavement. In this letter, Moore explains “how [she] came to be so far to Leeward from [her] native home.”  Eliza Moore’s experiences in kinship with the enslaved domestic women in her life, and as a mother to three sons, at least one of which was conceived via sexual encounters with a more privileged man than herself, informed her life of simultaneous movement and containment. This complex web of relationships supported Moore’s savvy and her ability to secure her liberation.

Speaking of Feminism: Reflecting on the Past, Present and Future of the U.S. Women’s Movement

From the Women's Marches to the MeToo movement, it is clear that feminist activism is still alive and well in the twenty-first century. But how does a new generation of activists understand the work of the movement today? How are their strategies and goals unfolding? What worries feminist leaders most, and what are their hopes for the future? In Speaking of Feminism, Rachel F. Seidman presents insights from twenty-five feminist activists from around the United States, ranging in age from twenty to fifty. Allowing their voices to take center stage through the use of in-depth oral history interviews, Seidman places their narratives in historical context and argues that they help explain how recent new forms of activism developed and flourished so quickly.

Melissa Febos, Craft of Nonfiction: In Defense of Navel Gazing

Heimbold Visual Arts Center Donnelley Film Theatre

Open to the public

/ Tuesday

How often have you heard another writer sneer at the concept of literary writing as cathartic or, God forbid, therapeutic? How often have you agreed? Too often we take for granted the false binary between the personal and the intellectual. A literary work's aesthetic or intellectual merit does not preclude catharsis, nor concerns of domestic, corporeal, or "confessional" nature. Why shouldn't a literary examination of the navel approach profound universalities, be intellectually astute, politically relevant, and aesthetically great? During this talk we will take a long hard look into our own navels, interrogate our own inherited biases and consider why "personal" writing might be exactly what we need right now.

Melissa Febos MFA '08 is the author of the memoir Whip Smart (St. Martin’s Press 2010), the essay collection Abandon Me (Bloomsbury 2017), and a forthcoming second essay collection, Girlhood (Bloomsbury 2020). The inaugural winner of the Jean Córdova Nonfiction Award from LAMBDA Literary, her work has recently appeared in Tin House, Granta, The New York Times, Vogue, and The Believer. She is an Associate Professor and MFA Director at Monmouth University and lives in Brooklyn.

In the contemporary moment, transgender life is widely associated with structural oppression, rejection, and violence. Despite this, the work of trans artists and writers is often joyful and liberatory, more invested in pleasure than loss.

Michael Klein—One World Falls Into The Other: When Poetry Makes Prose

Heimbold Visual Arts Center Donnelley Film Theatre

Open to the public

/ Wednesday

Gary Snyder was once asked what the difference was between poetry and prose.  His answer:  "You can't force poetry".  Is his implication then, that prose is a more self-conscious form of sentence making?  I don't necessarily agree with Snyder's assessmentparticularly when it comes to resultswhich for me mean nothing less than creating writing that records the engagement with the beauty and terrible beauty of the worldevident in people, in animals, in inner living, in disease, in adversity, in redemption and when praise lifts up the object of desire.

Wesley Brown—Fiction and the Art of Not Knowing

Heimbold Visual Arts Center Donnelley Film Theatre

Open to the public

/ Wednesday

The artist, Robert Rauschenberg, once said: “I usually work in a direction until I know how to do it; then I stop. For Rauschenberg, the artist is engaged in an ongoing struggle against what he or she knows how to do. Any creative person, whether they consider themselves an artist or not, is always attempting to discover something unknown. And once making a discovery, they try to create new problems to complicate or challenge what they’ve found out. In my talk on what I call—the art of know knowing—I will discuss how the unknown is revealed in the story, “Awaiting Orders” by Tobias Wolff.

Eve Aschheim is an abstract painter and draftsperson who seeks to create dynamic structures that exist between categories of thought. Her interests include implied motion, states in the midst of change, and a fictive reality that exists between multiple visual constructions. Along with her resistance to making a nameable image, she also attempts to make a memorable visual experience that cannot be corralled by memory. Aschheim’s recent work with photograms allow her to experiment with “drawing in the darkroom” using objects, elements drawn or painted on translucent mylar, and tools including prepared flashlights.

Cliché and Ketman: Post-Truth and Delicate Translation

Library Meeting Room aka Pillow Room

Open to the public

/ Thursday

As internationalism fades and world leaders praise the "principle of sovereignty," the media that convey international communication consolidate the algorithms that give them their forms. Though violently conflicting ideologies in this environment should yield violently differing forms of expression, technology congeals the languages of actual enemies into virtual twins. This, as always, is very evident in the politics and practice of translation. Google Translate and its kin force language into set forms, and subtleties meant to convey authorial complicity get spiced and diced into many different packages. Underneath lies the fact that when all communication is publication, authors of all types frequently must protect themselves with the sheen of false complicity—"ketman" in Czesław Miłosz's famous Cold War essay.

Vinson Cunningham–Thought, Emotion, and Politics in Prose

Heimbold Visual Arts Center Donnelley Film Theatre

Open to the public

/ Wednesday

I sometimes think of the work of the writer (or, at least, the kind of writer I'd like to be) as stubbornly split. On the one hand, prose remains our best vehicle for the impartation of information and the development of arguments—in other words, it helps us to think and to relay our thoughts. But then there's the fact that the best novels, stories, essays, and even works of criticism tend, however explicitly, to arrive chock-full of emotion and attitude, stuff that lives in a place beyond fact and undiscoverable by logic alone. In this talk, I'd like to think a bit about how these two modes—the emotional and the critical-analytical—might be resolved, and how their resolution might change the way we think about the work we call "political."

Artists and scholars have long been at the forefront of protest movements in the United States and around the world. Whether by direct action or through their work, they have been instrumental in calling out injustice, fighting for the rights of marginalized groups, and drawing attention to problems both local and global in scale. In these fraught political times, the necessity of art that responds to injustice is never more urgent. Sarah Lawrence College and the Mayapple Center for the Arts and Humanities will jointly provide a forum for artists and scholars to reflect on their own practice of activist art, and more broadly, on the potential(s) for art as political resistance in America in 2018.

Leslie Jamison Craft of Creative Nonfiction—Compassion and Confession

Slonim Living Room / Stone Room

Open to the public

/ Thursday

Leslie Jamison will discuss her work as a writer who brings together personal, critical, and journalistic approaches, who writes her own life alongside the lives of others. She will discuss writing about a variety of subjects, including long distance runners, prison inmates, whale fanatics, and medical patients. What are the moral complexities of writing other peoples’ lives? She will discuss the obligations a writer might feel towards her subjects—the interplay between guilt and affection, between care and skepticism. What does it mean to confess the self—in all its quandaries and questions—inside a piece of reportage? How does a piece work differently when it includes reported material alongside deeply personal reflections—when we sense the reporter as a deeply emotional and subjective presence with a story of her own?

The Inaugural Year: Christine Desan Lecture—As Mainstream as the Mail: Re-Imagining Money, From Theory to (Postal) Practice

Titsworth Marjorie Leff Miller ’53 Lecture Hall

Open to the public

/ Tuesday

The Bitcoin boom attests to the deep public capacity to re-imagine money. Money runs through our lives in countless ways, a currency of value that denominates the work we perform and the property we own, the savings we put aside for those we love and the contributions we make towards the public sphere. If we can reconceive money, we can revise an elemental medium that relates people to each other, to those in authority, and to those across borders. The trick is not, however, inventing a crypto-currency, isolated from governance and immune from human interpretation. It is to understand and remake money as it exists at the core of political and economic life.
