Noble Marbles Lecture

University Events In the eighteenth century, the desire to expand knowledge of classical architecture beyond well-known examples from the Roman Empire to its original sources led explorer-architects to Greece. Described by Vitruvius as the “Mistress of the Arts,” Greece was a mystery known primarily through literature. Among the first adventurers to record Greek architecture, James Stuart and Nicholas Revett applied a relatively accurate archaeological approach to recording buildings known only by name in the West. Their three volumes of measured elevations, plans, and sculptural detail would serve as the inspiration and source for an international style of Greek Revival architecture and furnishings in both Europe and America, becoming the first architectural style of the new nation. Dr. Elizabeth Dowling, professor emeritus in Georgia Tech’s College of Design, discusses the work and influence of the pair in a lecture titled Stuart and Revett and the Antiquities of Athens. This event is co-sponsored by the Institute of Clas… University Event Topic: Arts. Department/Organization: Carlos Museum. Thursday, January 19, 2017, 7:30 PM – 8:30 PM. Michael C.

"The General History of China" and the Earliest Translations of Chinese Fiction into English

University Events The first works of Chinese vernacular fiction available in the West were published 1735, when the French Jesuit Jean-Baptiste Du Halde compiled translations of three pieces of Chinese vernacular fiction from Jingu qiguan (Marvels Ancient and Modern). These were later translated into English in The General History of China (1736) edited by John Watts. The three stories are “Lu Dalang gives money to re-unite his family” (吕大郎还金完骨肉), “Zhuangzi bangs a drum and becomes an immortal” (庄子休鼓盆成大道), and “The bad servant sues his master because of a private grudge” (怀私怨狠仆告主). The stories are framed by a dual purpose: they were a means to understand the nature of Chinese society, and they were also a pivot in the changing views of China. But why were these three stories chosen for translation and publication? And what was changed by the translation (left out, glossed over, added)? What did these three stories tell Western readers about China? School: Emory College. Department/Organization: Russian and East Asian Languages and Cultures.

Justin Quinn: Irish Poetry in the World

University Events Description: Irish poetry has won renown well beyond the country's shores, yet it sometimes deliberately turns away from the world that fetes it. One way that several English-speaking Irish poets do this is through the Irish language, incorporating words, phrases and sometimes whole stanzas in their poems, as though to puzzle outsiders. By considering the work of Paul Muldoon among others, we'll look at this issue along with some concerns from postcolonialism and World Literature theory. Date & Time: Monday, 1/23, 4pm in Kemp Malone Reception to follow More info about Justin : http://ualk.ff.cuni.cz/staff/justin-quinn. Department/Organization: Dept of English. English Department.

Noble Marbles Lecture

University Events Although the Parthenon began its long existence as a classical temple to the Greek goddess Athena, it later served as a Christian church dedicated to Mary, and eventually as an Islamic mosque.  How a pagan temple could be adapted to meet the needs of Christians and Muslims is the subject of a lecture titled Noblest Images: The Parthenon Marbles from 1436 to the Present, by Jenifer Neils, editor of the book, The Parthenon From Antiquity to the Present  (Oxford 2005). These often overlooked phases of the building’s history (which have been largely eradicated by modern restorations) shed light on the role of one of the most influential structures to survive from antiquity. The gallery talk on the Noble Marbles exhibition by curator Jasper Gaunt, originally scheduled on this date, has been rescheduled to Thursday, March 2. http://www.carlos.emory.edu/education/public-programs/adult-programs.

When Protection becomes Punishment: Policing the Public (Schools) in an Unequal City (JWJI Race & Difference Colloquium Series)

University Events Carla Shedd (Assistant Professor of Sociology and African American Studies, Columbia University) will present a talk examining how Chicago’s most vulnerable residents navigate their neighborhoods, assess their life chances, and reconcile their encounters with the law. Shedd’s analysis relies on both quantitative and qualitative data to argue that adolescents’ worldviews are profoundly influenced by encounters with law enforcement, particularly while traveling to school and during school hours. Teens often travel long distances to attend school and, due to Chicago’s segregated and highly unequal neighborhoods, their journey may involve crossing class, race, and gang lines. She finds that the disadvantaged teens who traverse these boundaries daily develop a keen “perception of injustice,” or the recognition that their economic and educational opportunities are restricted by their place in our nation's social hierarchy. Her talk will also present findings from related to the use and impact of metal detectors, su… University Event Topic: College.

The Evolution of Human Sleep

University Events Scientists have made substantial progress in understanding the evolution of mammalian sleep, yet the evolution of human sleep has been largely ignored in comparative studies. This omission is surprising given the extraordinary mental capacity and behavioral flexibility of humans, and the importance of sleep for human cognitive performance. I will discuss new phylogenetic methods that enable rigorous investigation of sleep along a single evolutionary lineage, and will apply these methods to study human sleep and brain size. In addition, I will present new findings from my lab on sleep in traditional human populations, which sheds additional light on the evolution of human sleep. I will close by considering how evolutionary perspectives provide insights to human sleep disorders, health across the lifespan, and health disparities. University Event Topic: Lectures & Meetings.

One Hundred Years of Shakespeare in Atlanta

University Events ONE HUNDRED YEARS OF SHAKESPEARE IN ATLANTA (begins Feb. 2, 2017) As a sequel to Emory’s recent celebration of Shakespeare's four-hundred-year legacy, this seminar invites participants to contemplate how Shakespeare has been studied, performed, and celebrated in Atlanta in the past century, focusing especially on race, gender, and class as crucial tools for making sense of this history. Our initial sessions will be devoted to some little-known female pioneers of Shakespeare pedagogy and performance in the separate and unequal worlds of the Jim Crow South. Moving forward chronologically, we’ll then reflect on Othello as a potent signifier of race relations in modern-day Atlanta, exploring a popular 1979 performance at the Alliance Theatre as well as a 2003 Othello-related glass installation on view at the High Museum. In our last session, we will turn to the fascinating genesis of the Shakespeare Tavern Playhouse and the Atlanta Shakespeare Company’s ongoing role in bringing Shakespeare performance in… University Event Topic: Humanities.

The Checkered Past of Brazil’s New Race Court (JWJI Race & Difference Colloquium Series)

University Events A categorical crisis around racially-mixed persons has become a legal quagmire in Brazil. In August 2016, the Brazilian government announced the formation of the Racial Court (Tribunal Racial) to confront the steady stream of legal challenges that has beset the racial segment of the country’s Quotas System (Sistema de Cotas). The latter is an affirmative-action program giving preference to the disabled, the economically-disadvantaged, graduates of public schools, and specific racial groups (Amerindians and persons of African ancestry) in government offices and higher education. Litigation and media attention are centered on the program’s interstitial racial category, pardo,-a. The category preto—the straightforward “black” in Brazil until it was jettisoned in educated quarters for negro, “negro”—and the category pardo (of European and an undefined amount of African and/or native origins) are often treated as subsets of the category negro. Still, color not descent is invoked when it is stated that persons “of… University Event Topic: Diversity. Lectures & Meetings. Ongoing Event. Seminars & Workshops.

Carlos Reads Book Club

University Events Clifton Crais, professor of history and director of Emory’s Institute of African Studies, will lead a discussion of Heart of Redness by Zakes Mda. Published in 2000, just six years after the end of apartheid, the novel explores the classic themes of tradition and modernity in a newly democratic South Africa. Mda moves between the contemporary moment and an epochal and still-remembered event in the middle of the nineteenth century, when the Xhosa followers of a prophet perished in a massive famine known as the “Cattle Killing” or the Xhosa national suicide. Among the many issues raised by the novel are questions such as “what is the location of the past in the present,” “what does it mean to be free,” and “what is a post-apartheid South Africa?” Space is limited and registration is required by calling 404-727- 6118.

One Hundred Years of Shakespeare in Atlanta

University Events ONE HUNDRED YEARS OF SHAKESPEARE IN ATLANTA (begins Feb. 2, 2017) As a sequel to Emory’s recent celebration of Shakespeare's four-hundred-year legacy, this seminar invites participants to contemplate how Shakespeare has been studied, performed, and celebrated in Atlanta in the past century, focusing especially on race, gender, and class as crucial tools for making sense of this history. Our initial sessions will be devoted to some little-known female pioneers of Shakespeare pedagogy and performance in the separate and unequal worlds of the Jim Crow South. Moving forward chronologically, we’ll then reflect on Othello as a potent signifier of race relations in modern-day Atlanta, exploring a popular 1979 performance at the Alliance Theatre as well as a 2003 Othello-related glass installation on view at the High Museum. In our last session, we will turn to the fascinating genesis of the Shakespeare Tavern Playhouse and the Atlanta Shakespeare Company’s ongoing role in bringing Shakespeare performance in… University Event Topic: Humanities.

Autism Inequities in Diagnosis and Services based on Race, Ethnicity, SES, and Gender (JWJI Race & Difference Colloquium Series)

University Events Autism spectrum disorder is the fastest growing developmental disability affecting 1 in 68 children in the U.S. Although it is a lifelong condition, early diagnosis and interventions can have a significant impact on the developmental trajectory and outcomes for people with autism. However, access to diagnosis and services are unequal, which can significantly alter life trajectories. Further, inequities to diagnosis and services are stratified by socioeconomic status, race, and ethnicity. Drawing on theories of fundamental causes and intersectionality and fieldwork in Atlanta, GA, this Race and Difference Colloquium presentation by Jennifer Singh (Assistant Professor of History and Sociology, Georgia Tech) offers a multi-level analysis of how autism disparities are shaped by a range of intersecting inequalities. *Dr. Singh’s 2015 book Multiple Autisms: Spectrums of Advocacy and Genomic Science will be available for purchase during and after the speaker presentation.*.

One Hundred Years of Shakespeare in Atlanta

University Events ONE HUNDRED YEARS OF SHAKESPEARE IN ATLANTA (begins Feb. 2, 2017) As a sequel to Emory’s recent celebration of Shakespeare's four-hundred-year legacy, this seminar invites participants to contemplate how Shakespeare has been studied, performed, and celebrated in Atlanta in the past century, focusing especially on race, gender, and class as crucial tools for making sense of this history. Our initial sessions will be devoted to some little-known female pioneers of Shakespeare pedagogy and performance in the separate and unequal worlds of the Jim Crow South. Moving forward chronologically, we’ll then reflect on Othello as a potent signifier of race relations in modern-day Atlanta, exploring a popular 1979 performance at the Alliance Theatre as well as a 2003 Othello-related glass installation on view at the High Museum.

Lecture: Cooking Data: Politics and Culture in an African Research World by Crystal Biruk

University Events Crystal Biruk is Assistant Professor of Anthropology at Oberlin College in Ohio. She received a Bachelor of Arts from Bryn Mawr College and a Doctor of Philosophy from the University of Pennsylvania. Her research centers on the ethics and politics of intervention in the global South. She takes interest in how the growing presence of humanitarian, development, and scientific projects in sub-Saharan Africa reconfigures local social geographies, producing new kinds of status, mobility, expertise, and exclusions.  Biruk is working on a book titled Cooking Data: Politics and Culture in an African Research World that explores how the commodification of health-related data intersects local social worlds, producing new political subjectivities and modes of governance. Cooking Data draws on 18 months of ethnography in Malawi to tell the life story of data itself, tracking its transformation from pencil marks on a survey page into the statistics consumed by policy makers, researchers, and the public.

Jennie Ebeling - "Women, Food and Ritual in Biblical Israel and Judah"

University Events Dr. Jennie Ebeling, Associate Professor of Archaeology, University of Evansville “Women, Food and Ritual in Biblical Israel and Judah” The writers of the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament condemned certain religious practices that took place outside of the Jerusalem Temple and/or were performed in the worship of deities other than Yahweh. For example, Jeremiah (7:18 and 44:17-25) rails against women making cakes for the Queen of Heaven in a ritual that involved the whole family, and women are described weaving garments for Asherah in the Jerusalem Temple in 2 Kings 23:7 and weeping for Tammuz in Ezekiel 8:14. Although we have no extra-biblical evidence for the actual activities that took place in the Jerusalem Temple, more than one hundred temples, shrines, and other cultic spaces have been found at Iron Age (ca. 1200-586 BCE) sites in Israel and nearly all of them contain evidence for preparing and/or consuming food and drink. Since women are believed to have been the primary cooks and bakers in biblical tim… University Event Topic: Lectures & Meetings. Department/Organization: Middle Eastern and South Asian Studies.

The Wilmington Ten (JWJI Race & Difference Colloquium Series)

University Events In this Race and Difference Colloquium, Kenneth Janken (Professor of African American Studies, UNC-Chapel Hill) will discuss his 2016 book The Wilmington Ten: Violence, Injustice, and the Rise of Black Politics in the 1970s. In February 1971, racial tension surrounding school desegregation in Wilmington, North Carolina, culminated in four days of violence and skirmishes between white vigilantes and black residents.  The turmoil resulted in two deaths, six injuries, more than $500,000 in damage, and the firebombing of a white-owned store, before the National Guard restored uneasy peace.  Despite glaring irregularities in the subsequent trial, ten young persons were convicted of arson and conspiracy and then sentenced to a total of 282 years in prison.  They became known internationally as the Wilmington Ten.  A powerful movement arose within North Carolina and beyond to demand their freedom, and after several witnesses admitted to perjury, a federal appeals court, also citing prosecutorial misconduct, over… University Event Topic: Humanities.

Sonya Quintanilla - "Stories within Stories through Paintings from Mughal India"

University Events Sonya Quintanilla, George P. Bickford Curator of Indian and Southeast Asian Art, Cleveland Museum of Art “Stories within Stories through Paintings from Mughal India” In this lavishly illustrated lecture, the story of the Mughals unfolds through the imagery in paintings they commissioned from their imperial artists. Further insight into the interests and personalities of royal Mughal patrons can be gleaned from the stories they chose for vibrant and extensive illumination. In the paintings of adventure tales and histories favored by the third Mughal emperor Akbar between 1556 and 1605, his preoccupations, interests, and concerns come to light. His son Jahangir’s love of mystical biographies and the national epic of Iran signals a shift in style and subject in Mughal painting of the 17th century. Eighteenth century Mughal paintings were dominated by images of women and pleasurable pastimes that dominated until the ascendancy of the British and ideals of the modern western Enlightenment.

The Evolution, Purpose, and Consequences of Religious Prosociality

University Events Why do today's religions look and function the way they do? Presenting research primarily on religion’s effects on prosocial behavior and prejudice toward outgroups, I will argue that the form and function of modern religions can be understood as the legacy of a millennia-long process of cultural evolution. Our recent research has begun to empirically test perennially debated questions about whether religions make people act more ethically, what functions religions have served, and why some religious traditions have fared better than others. The results reveal that while the social consequences of religion are not always desirable, they can be explained as the product of cultural adaptations that served vital social functions. In particular, I’ll discuss how recurrent elements throughout religions have served to stabilize cooperation among large groups of unrelated strangers, and maximize survival in intergroup competition. Finally, I’ll speak about how this cultural evolutionary perspective informs predictio… University Event Topic: Lectures & Meetings. School: Emory College.

Concert: Gloriosa Trio

University Events “Driven by lush violin-and-cello unison melodies” and a timbre that is “fuller than the brain imagines three musicians can sound,” (Jon Sobel, BlogCritics) the Gloriosa Trio burst onto the music scene in January 2014 as brightly as the flame lily for which the group is named. The trio's carefully-crafted thematic programs delivered in exuberant performance have appealed to diverse audiences around the country. All experienced chamber musicians with a passion for collaboration, pianist Yoonie Han, violinist Jennifer Carsillo, and cellist Kevin Bate looked to the beauty of nature to inspire them with a name for their group, finding in the Gloriosa lily a fitting symbol to describe their fervent desire to share the music they love. Hailed by the Washington Post for "her musical imagination and feel for complex textures," South Korean pianist Yoonie Han is the first-prize winner of the Washington International Piano Competition (2011), the Fulbright Concerto Competition (2011), Juilliard’s Gina Bachauer Pia… School: Oxford College.

Sex Tourism in Bahia: Ambiguous Entanglements (JWJI Race & Difference Colloquium Series)

University Events In this Race and Difference colloquium, Erica Williams (Associate Professor of Anthropology and Sociology, Spelman College) will discuss her 2013 award-wining book Sex Tourism in Bahia, published by the University of Illinois Press. In her analysis, Williams argues that the cultural and sexual economies of tourism are inextricably linked in the Bahian capital city of Salvador. She shows how the Bahian state strategically exploits the touristic desire for exotic culture by appropriating an eroticized blackness and commodifying the Afro-Brazilian culture in order to sell Bahia to foreign travelers. Drawing on ethnographic research and in-depth interviews, this presentation combines historical, sociological, anthropological, cultural-studies, and feminist perspectives to demonstrate how sexism, racism, and socioeconomic inequality interact in the context of tourism in Bahia. *Books will be available for purchase during and after the speaker presentation.*.
