Rodgers & Hart’s "The Boys from Syracuse"

University Events Rodgers & Hart’s The Boys from Syracuse Music by Richard Rogers Lyrics by Lorenz Hart Book by George Abbott Based on “The Comedy of Errors" by William Shakespeare Written in 1938, this musical reimagining of "The Comedy of Errors" was the first American musical comedy based on a Shakespeare play. Freely adapted by legendary Broadway impresario George Abbott and featuring standards from Rodgers & Hart, "The Boys from Syracuse" infuses the ancient setting of Greco-Roman Ephesus with the burlesque and vaudeville spirit of 1930s New York City.

Speculative Blackness: The Future of Race in Science Fiction (JWJI Race & Difference Colloquium Series)

University Events In this Race and Difference Colloquium presentation, Andre Carrington will offer a fluid discussion of the ways in which science fiction and fantasy have reflected—and obscured—the imaginative traditions of Black culture. From pulp magazines to comic books, television, and blockbuster superhero films, speculative fiction has occupied both marginal and popular positions in relation to mainstream American literature and culture. Academic studies and the art world have begun to recognize the creative power of the Black fantastic. Speculative Blackness investigates the intertwined histories of race thinking and speculative fiction as a provocation to literary criticism, American Studies, and popular culture. *Carrington’s 2016 book Speculative Blackness (University of Minnesota Press) will be available for purchase during and after the speaker presentation.*.

PROGRAM FULL: Carlos Reads Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar

University Events THIS PROGRAM IS FULL AND NO ADDITIONAL REGISTRATIONS MAY BE TAKEN. Only appearing for a short time in the play, the figure of Julius Ceasar casts a large shadow over the entire drama. As much about Brutus as Caesar, this tragedy of the back-stabbing friend and the consequences of his actions play out across the very public spectacle of a burgeoning empire. Though grounded in Roman history the play lends itself well to critical dialogue about democratic processes and popular sovereignty that sound familiar in a 21st-century American context. Fee: $20 for Carlos Museum members; $25 for non-members, which includes the cost of the book. Registration required by calling 404-727-6118. University Event Topic: Arts.

The Too-Busy City: Atlanta and Urbanity

University Events Between World War II and the present Atlanta grew by leaps and bounds, becoming a national, and later an international city.

After exploring the factors that contributed to its dramatic expansion, the seminar will conclude with a consideration of the politics and projects that will shape Atlanta’s future in the twenty-first century.

A Century of America's National Parks

University Events On August 25, 2016 the National Park Service celebrated its centennial. Lauded by filmmaker Ken Burns as America’s “best idea,” national parks are some of the most iconic places in the United States. For more than a hundred years, American national parks have cordoned off vast tracts of land and unique landscapes from development, and have provided a ready source of education and recreation for the masses. This seminar will explore the long and storied history of American national parks and the National Park Service. We will consider what ideals motivated the creation of the first national parks, the social consequences of national park management, how national parks fueled the growth of an American tourist industry, and how the aims of the Park Service have changed in response to new ideas about recreation and nature. This seminar will serve as your historical guide to the nation’s national parks—a guide that can enhance the experience of visiting these unique places.

Weird Science (1985), film screening

University Events Emory Cinematheque, Drawn to Film: From Comics to Cinema, Weird Science (1985) directed by John Hughes, In the 1980s, John Hughes reigned supreme as the King of Teen-Pics. Reaching back to an earlier period in the history of teen pop-culture, he adapted a story from the science-fiction anthology comic Weird Science, the kind of comic book that, in the 1950s, inspired a nation-wide assault on the form. Starring Hughes’ go-to geek Anthony Michael Hall as one of the freshman Frankensteins, and super-model Kelly Le Brock as his super-powered “creation,” the film captures perhaps too well the kind of adolescent male wish-fulfilment that lay at the heart of so many comic book stories. The film also feature one of the director’s signature soundtracks. Recommended Parking, Oxford Road Parking Deck. University Event Topic: Arts. Department/Organization: Film & Media Studies.

CMBC LECTURE: "The Continuing Significance of Race in American Politics: Racial Resentment and the Pain of Progress"

University Events Why does race serve as the most polarizing feature of American politics? Presumably, Americans have a stake in proclaiming America’s greatness, particularly touting pride in democratic governance, protecting civil rights and liberties, and making progress in areas that serve as ugly scars in its history. Yet, research suggests the effects of racial bias now surpass the typical partisan and ideological predispositions that drive political decision making and judgments. This phenomenon is highlighted by public opinion data col-lected over the past 10 years covering Barack Obama’s presidential candidacy and subsequent admin-istrations. As the prototypically racially neutral African American politician, Barack Obama was expected to inhibit the activation of negative racial appraisals and threat. Contrary to such expectations a number of studies show this did not happen, as perceptions of Obama and his policies are linked strongly to negative racial attitudes. But, negative racial attitudes are not limited to Obam… University Event Topic: Lectures & Meetings. School: Emory College. Department/Organization: Center for Mind Brain and Culture.

The Too-Busy City: Atlanta and Urbanity

University Events Between World War II and the present Atlanta grew by leaps and bounds, becoming a national, and later an international city. Even as Atlanta’s supporters marveled at its meteoric rise, critics worried about its suburban sprawl, stifling congestion, and commitment to social equity. Using media accounts and selected planning documents, our seminar will examine critical developments in Atlanta’s history including the creation of Atlanta’s expressway network, the establishment of MARTA, and its hosting of the 1996 Olympic Games. After exploring the factors that contributed to its dramatic expansion, the seminar will conclude with a consideration of the politics and projects that will shape Atlanta’s future in the twenty-first century. The seminar will be moderated by Dr. Edward Hatfield, Instructor of History at Kennesaw State University, and will meet at The Fox Center from 6:30pm to 8:00pm for four consecutive Thursday evening sessions during the 2016 fall semester: September 29, October 6, 13, 20.

Yossi Berg and Oded Graf Dance Theatre, "Come Jump with Me"

University Events Come Jump with Me is a daring, provocative, and witty work that examines the relevancy and significance of creating art in the urgent political reality of Israel. Come Jump with Me serves as a dialogue between the choreographers and Israel, the country where they live, and the identity crisis in which they find themselves.  In the explosive political and social reality of Israel, this work indeed pushes the limits and “plays with fire,” both literally and visually. Set in an imaginative playground involving different levels of consciousness, the performers move among personal and collective figures of history in a fantastic adventure, while trying to understand what future they are marching toward and their own definitions of “holiness.” The audience is invited to join them on an emotional roller coaster – from moments that are ecstatic and poetic, to moments examining the relevancy and significance of creating art in the urgent political reality of Israel.

Dick Tracy (1990), film screening

University Events Emory Cinematheque, Drawn to Film: From Comics to Cinema, Dick Tracy (1990) directed by Warren Beatty, For a solid 30 years, Chet Gould’s two-fisted police detective Dick Tracy was a cornerstone of American popular culture and part of the bedrock of newspaper “funnies.” The comic strip had largely slumped into self-parody by the time Warren Beatty decided to enlist an honor-roll of his ‘70s Hollywood pals in a film adaptation that plays it almost painfully straight. Exquisitely lensed by the incomparable Vittorio Storaro, Beatty (in the title role) is joined by the likes of Dustin Hoffman, James Caan, Al Pacino, Henry Silva, Michael J. Pollard, and Madonna, of all people, as femme fatale Breathless Mahoney, Recommended Parking, Oxford Road Parking Deck. University Event Topic: Arts. Department/Organization: Film & Media Studies.

Othello: The Moor Speaks

University Events One of Shakespeare's most important works, Othello provides commentary on the “rise of colonialism and imperialism,” as well as the ongoing struggle to define the qualities related to quintessential manhood and masculinity. Through the archival materials found in the Stuart A. Rose Library, this exhibition will explore the development of the play as a vehicle for African American actors such as Ira Aldridge, Paul Robeson, and Lawrence Fishburne to claim the role of the “Black Moor” from white men in black face. Through the exhibition and programming, we will explore the complexity of being a black man in a white world, and the meanings associated with Shakespeare's provocative representation of race and racism.

CMBC LECTURE: "How Metacognitive States like Tip-of-the-Tongue and Deja Vu Can Be Biasing"

University Events In my lab, we recently discovered a new type of cognitive bias brought on by the presence of a tip-of-the-tongue (TOT) state for a currently inaccessible word. When in a TOT state, participants think it more likely that a currently unretrieva-ble word was presented in a darker, clearer font upon last seeing it, a larger font upon last seeing it, that it is of higher frequency in the language, and that it starts with a more common first letter in the language. This pattern suggests that TOT states bias people to infer that the unretrieved target information has qualities that tend to characterize fluency or accessibility, even when that is not the case. In further studies, we have found that the TOT’s biasing effects also ex-tend to the immediately surrounding circumstances during the TOT as well. For example, people judge celebrity faces as belonging to more ethical people when in a TOT state for the name than when not, and rate their inclination to take an unrelated gamble as being higher when in a TOT state… University Event Topic: Lectures & Meetings.

Benjamin B. Cohen - "The Shape of Water in India's Deccan"

University Events Benjamin B. Cohen, Professor of History, University of Utah "The Shape of Water in India's Deccan" Water in India's Deccan takes many shapes, from sacred libations to rushing rivers. In this presentation, Dr. Cohen will present work in progress from a current book project. This book spans the Deccan's history from the Kakatiya Empire of the 11th century to the present Telangana Government. The presentation will focus on examples from the Kakatiya and Sultanate periods. Rather than military conquests or "civilizational clashes," his approach will be to view the Deccan through hydrosocial terms. A hydrosocial approach locates humans and water under the same analytic lens, and sees the ways in which humans and water have impacted each other over time. Rather than writing Deccani history as a series of distinct kingdoms or empires, a hydrosocial approach allows for a long-term, connected history. University Event Topic: Lectures & Meetings. School: Emory College. Department/Organization: Middle Eastern and South Asian Studies. Building/Room: Callaway Memorial Center. Meeting Organizer/Sponsor: South Asia Seminar Series.

A History of Violence (2005), film screening

University Events Emory Cinematheque, Drawn to Film: From Comics to Cinema, A History of Violence (2005) directed by David Cronenberg, American comic books “grew up” in the 1980s. Artists and authors explored more mature, sometimes more realistic and even disturbing stories and themes, often presented not as monthly episodes but as “graphic novels.” Some of these “serious” graphic narratives have of late been made into seriously fine films. Aided by a riveting performance by Viggo Mortensen, director David Cronenberg (Videodrome, Dead Ringers) turned John Wagner and Vince Locke’s 1997 comic noir, History of Violence into a critical and cinephilic sensation, garnering nominations for two Academy Awards and the coveted Palm D’Or at Cannes.

Ghost World (2001), film screening

University Events Emory Cinematheque, Drawn to Film: From Comics to Cinema, Ghost World (2001) directed by Terry Zwigoff, Terry Zwigoff, who’d previously directed an eye-opening biographical documentary on underground comix genius R. Crumb in 1994, helms this pitch-perfect rendition of a story of a couple of rudderless recent high school grads and their involvement in the life of a middle-aged record collector that originally appeared in the pages of Dan Clowe’s Eightball. Zwigoff’s film captures both Clowes’s gently precise vivisection of what would become the “hipster” culture, and the unexpected poignancy and vulnerability under all the snark. Indie mainstay Steve Buscemi stars, alongside Thora Birch and Scarlett Johansson, before she was a superstar. Recommended Parking, Oxford Road Parking Deck. University Event Topic: Arts.

Titus (1999), film screening

University Events Titus (1999) directed by Julie Taymor War begets revenge. Victorious general, Titus Andronicus, returns to Rome with hostages: Tamora queen of the Goths and her sons. He orders the eldest hewn to appease the Roman dead. He declines the proffered emperor's crown, nominating Saturninus, the last ruler's venal elder son. Saturninus, to spite his brother Bassianus, demands the hand of Lavinia, Titus's daughter. When Bassianus, Lavinia, and Titus's sons flee in protest, Titus stands against them and slays one of his own. Saturninus marries the honey-tongued Tamora, who vows vengeance against Titus. The ensuing maelstrom serves up tongues, hands, rape, adultery, racism, and Goth-meat pie. Recommended Parking, Oxford Road Parking Deck. University Event Topic: Arts.
