Bhrigupati Singh - "Poverty and the Quest for Life"

University Events Bhrigupati Singh, Assistant Professor of Anthropology, Brown University "Poverty and the Quest for Life: Spiritual and Material Striving in Rural India" Dr. Singh will discuss his recent book Poverty and the Quest for Life (University of Chicago Press, 2015). Set in Shahabad, an area of extreme poverty in rural Rajasthan, and focusing on the Sahariyas, a community of former bonded laborers, this book asks what the terms “aspiration” and “quality of life” might mean within such a milieu. The book answers this question by taking the reader through a range of themes including ways of conceptualizing state power and everyday encounters with the state (beyond a fixation on corruption and sovereign authority), the decline of forests and the water table, the contestations but also the intimacies of inter-caste sociality, the rise and fall of gods, and the place of religious practice in everyday life. This book offers new ways of thinking beyond the religion-secularism and nature-culture dichotomies, juxtapos… University Event Topic: Lectures & Meetings. School: Emory College.

Batman (1989), film screening

University Events Emory Cinematheque, Drawn to Film: From Comics to Cinema, Batman (1989) directed by Tim Burton, Starring New Hollywood icon Jack Nicholson and a cast-against-type Michael Keaton, Tim Burton’s trend-setting, highly-stylized take on the Caped Crusader wiped away the character’s long association, on screen with Saturday morning cartoons and re-runs of Adam West hamming it up in ill-fitting tights, and ushered in a new era in super-hero cinema.

Foreign relations, funerary art, and pharaoh: Visual play in ancient Egypt

University Events This talk addresses the question of why Ramses II concluded a peace treaty with the Hittite king Hattušili III 16 years after a major battle between Egyptian and Hittite forces (c. 1257 BCE). To answer this question, we will explore the meaning of the “peace,” or hetep, that the treaty established. Our study of this word will take us on an artistic adventure, as we look at images of “offering” (also hetep) found in temples and tombs and consider the symbolism of those images. Focusing on the visual play between the word hetep (“offerings”) and the image of offering, this talk will show that the purpose of the offering ritual and the symbolic meaning of the offering scene was to provide the recipient not with physical items, but with recognition by and interaction with the living. This interpretation then informs our understanding of why Ramses established hetep (“peace”) in the absence of war and why the hieroglyphic version of the peace treaty contains a preamble not found in the Hittites’ version of the t… University Event Topic: Humanities.

Tibetan Shrine Lecture Bodyguard Buddhas: Protector Deities in Tibetan Buddhism

University Events Whether by praying to peaceful loving deities like the female Buddha Tara or by invoking the terrifying wrath of fierce deities like the buffalo-headed Yamantaka, Tibetan Buddhists frequently turn to protectors for help on the Buddhist path. Protectors serve many functions, from guarding against bodily harm, disease, war to warding off enemies—most importantly, the enemies of our own pride, jealously, anger, attachment, and ignorance. In a lecture titled Bodyguard Buddhas: Protector Deities in Tibetan Buddhism, Dr. Sara McClintock of Emory’s Department of Religion will introduce stories and practices connected to the key protector deities on display on the Alice S. Kandell Shrine, considering their roles as guardians of the Dharma both historically and in relation to individual practice. University Event Topic: Arts. Department/Organization: Carlos Museum.

Shot in the then-new widescreen Cinemascope format, the film features James Mason, Janet Leigh and future small screen stalwart Robert Wagner in the title role. Renowned scribe Dudley Nichols, who penned 13 films for John Ford, managed somewhat miraculously to turn Foster’s saga into the snappy script for this fast-paced actioner – Valiant had been appearing in Hearst newspapers since 1937!

Coiling Culture: Basketry Art of Native North America

University Events Baskets were one of the first art forms in the Americas, with basket fragments found in California and the Southwest dating to 9,400 years ago. Over the millennia, native North Americans developed elaborate techniques and intricate designs worked in local materials, from sweetgrass in Florida to black ash in the Northeast and deer grass in California, among many others. These materials were sacred to their makers and those who used these special containers. So too was the way each was made with coiling, especially poignant, symbolizing for many groups the path of human emergence from inside earth and the movement of the spirits between realms. This exhibition explores the intersection between material, making, and meaning in the fragile basketry art of the Southeast to the Southwest and up into the Arctic. University Event Topic: Arts.

How do you decide if a book is even worth reading? In this conversation, we’ll talk about these questions and practice together the skill/art of reading a book. University Event Topic: Academics.

Lecture: "The Second Coming of the Invisible Empire: The Ku Klux Klan of the 1920s" by William Rawlings

University Events William Rawlings will speak on his latest book, The Second Coming of the Invisible Empire: The Ku Klux Klan of the 1920s. The book provides a definitive history of the Ku Klux Klan, which was for a brief moment in time, one of the most powerful social and political organizations in the United States, boasting as many as 5 million members. "It's a fascinating study in sociology," Rawlings says, "and the Klan's self-destructive decline was also as rapid as its rise to power." Working first in the genre of "Southern suspense," his first five novels were commercially successful, earning positive reviews and interest from Hollywood. More recently Rawlings has turned to writing non-fiction, for the most part Southern history, and is a frequent contributor to newspapers and magazines. Rawlings was born, raised and still lives on the family farm in Sandersville, GA. He was educated at Emory University in Oxford and Atlanta, where he was a member of Phi Beta Kappa Honorary Society.

Produced by Dino Di Laurentiis, and starring Sam Jones, Max Von Sydow and Topol, Flash Gordon features some of the most outrageous exercises in costume and set design ever seen in a studio release, all of which amounts to a fittingly excessive foreground for the score and songs performed by the extraordinary Freddy Mercury and Queen.

Concert: Philip Thomson on Piano

University Events Philip Thomson, a native of Canada, graduated from the University of Toronto and pursued his master's degree in piano performance at The Juilliard School under the celebrated pianist Abbey Simon. Thomson came to international attention in 1991, when he made the world premiere recording of Liszt's De Profundis. His recording of this work with the Hungarian State Orchestra secured for him the opportunity to perform the Italian, Hungarian, Canadian and American premieres of De Profundis during the following year. Thomson was subsequently invited to record three CDs of the solo music of Liszt. In 2000, he recorded Felix Blumenfeld's piano music, containing 34 works, none of which had ever been recorded before.  Thomson has been on the piano faculty of the School of Music at The University of Akron since 1994.  This is an Oxford Studies event.

Anne Murphy - "Writing Punjabi across Borders"

University Events Anne Murphy, Associate Professor of Asian Studies, University of British Columbia "Writing Punjabi across Borders" Dr. Murphy explores advocacy for and cultural production in Punjabi in both the Gurmukhi script (used in India and the Indian diaspora) and Shahmukhi (the Indo-Persian script, utilized in Pakistan and its diaspora). Punjabi language activism in the postcolonial state of India led to the redrawing of the boundaries of the state of Punjab in 1966; this in turn led to the promotion of the language within state institutions. The widespread preference of Punjabi speakers for English-medium schools, however, means that elites largely neglect the language, and there is widespread sentiment that the language is still at risk, despite state patronage. In Pakistan the Punjabi language in Shahmukhi has suffered from significantly less support. Yet, there is a growing movement for Punjabi language and literature, to allow it to by used for precollegiate education. In both locations and in their diaspor… University Event Topic: Lectures & Meetings. School: Emory College. Department/Organization: Middle Eastern and South Asian Studies.

Popeye (1980), film screening

University Events Emory Cinematheque, Drawn to Film: From Comics to Cinema, Popeye (1980) directed by Robert Altman, E.C. Segar’s one-eyed, spinach-loving sailor was no spring chicken when Robin Williams took up the corn-cob pipe and played the part for eccentric auteur Robert Altman. Popeye had burst onto the funny pages in 1927, and had been appearing in radio plays, theatrical cartoons, and television animation for decades. Williams, a frenetic TV clown then best known for playing the zany extraterrestrial Mork from Ork on Mork and Mindy, gives a surprisingly textured performance in what is certainly Altman’s oddest movie. With a screenplay by Jules Feiffer, songs by Harry Nilsson, eye-poppingly cartoonish production design by Wolf Kroeger, and an impressive cast, the film nevertheless took a savage beating at the box office.

Carlos Reads Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar

University Events 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.

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.
