Laszlo Excalibur Lecture

University Events During the Hellenistic period from the death of Alexander the Great in 323 bc until the establishment of the Roman Empire in 31 bc, the medium of bronze drove artistic innovation. Sculptors moved beyond Classical norms, supplementing traditional subjects and idealized forms with realistic renderings of physical and emotional states. Bronze—surpassing marble with its tensile strength, reflective effects, and ability to hold fine detail—was employed for dynamic compositions, dazzling displays of the nude body, and graphic expressions of age and character. Cast from alloys of copper, tin, lead, and other elements, bronze statues were produced in the thousands: honorific portraits of rulers and citizens populated city squares, and images of gods, heroes, and mortals crowded sanctuaries. Few, however, survive. In a lecture titled Power and Pathos: Bronze Sculpture of the Hellenistic World, Kenneth Lapatin, associate curator of antiquities at the Getty Museum, (below) speaks about works in the unprecedented exhibit… University Event Topic: Arts.

Racial Caricature, the Anthropomorphic Object, and the Culture of Cute (Race & Difference Colloquium Series)

University Events How can the mundane object serve as a catalyst for exploring the relationship between aesthetics and political injury? We understand the harm embodied by mammy cookie jars, minstrel coin banks, and their kin representing a host of demeaning caricatures. Yet in the 21st century, the racial form that these Jim crow era figures embody – the anthropomorphic racial object – has found new life: Harajuku Lovers perfume bottles, Chanel’s “China Doll” handbags, Alessi’s “Mandarin” juicer. How do such commodities circumvent taboos surrounding ethnic caricature in the U.S.? How is it that these new forms of racial kitsch – the Asian figure as salt shaker, décor, or toy – evade contextualization as racist kitsch? In part, the answer lies in the rise of the Japanese style known as kawaii or cute style since the 1970s. What feelings does “cute” enable and which does it foreclose? Drawing on narratives by African American collectors of black memorabilia, Professor Leslie Bow (University of Wisconsin at Madison) explores… School: Emory College.

Carlos Reads Book Club

University Events The Aeneid has been the most famous text (after the Bible) in the western world for 2000 years. Indeed, T.S. Eliot called it the “classic of all Europe.” Nevertheless, there rages currently a debate among Virgil scholars as to the most fundamental meaning of the poem. Is it celebratory (comic like the Odyssey) or tragic (like the Iliad) in its worldview? Is it—as some think—propaganda for Roman imperialism or—as others think—a critique? Over five Monday evenings, Virgil scholar and Professor of Classics at Emory, Christine Perkell, will lead readers through the text, attending to the poetics of the text in order to under- stand how the poem generates such divergent interpretations among readers. Fee: $60 for Carlos Museum members; $85 for non-members. Registration is required by calling 404-727-6118. University Event Topic: Arts. Department/Organization: Carlos Museum. Monday, February 8, 2016, 7:30 PM – 8:30 PM. Michael C. Carlos Museum, Board Room, Level Two.

Argentine Tango for People with Parkinson's Disease: a Neuroscientific Perspective

University Events Emory Friends of Dance Lecture, Argentine Tango for People with Parkinson's Disease: a Neuroscientific Perspective Madeleine Hackney, PhD: Emory School of Medicine This work focuses on the design and optimization of creative movement/dance-based therapies to improve mobility, cognition and quality of life in older individuals with movement disorders. Dance may serve as an auxiliary therapy to pharmacology and surgery for conditions like Parkinson’s disease because dance appears to have motor, social and cognitive benefits. Partner dancing is a sophisticated, yet accessible system of tactile communication that conveys movement goals between a ‘leader’ and ‘follower’. Therefore this work explores the opportunities for meaningful healing encompassed within interactions between dance partners in adapted Argentine tango. Recommended Parking, Oxford Road Parking Deck.

CMBC LECTURE: Empathy through/with/for Music / Jenefer Robinson / University of Cincinnati

University Events Jenefer Robinson Department of Philosophy University of Cincinnati Broadly speaking, empathy is “the ability to understand and share the feelings of another” (Iacoboni). More narrowly, an emotion is usually deemed empathic only when “the agent is aware that it is caused by the perceived, imagined, or inferred plight of another, or it expresses concern for the welfare of another” (Maibom). In the broad sense, the tender reciprocal relationship that develops between mother and infant when the mother sings to the baby and the baby responds is a species of empathy through music. In the narrower sense listeners may empathize with the music itself when they are affected by music via emotional contagion – a kind of low-level empathy – to adopt the musical gestures they experience and thereby share the emotion expressed by the music. If, in addition, it’s possible for music to express the emotions of a persona – the performer, the composer or simply a “character” in the music – then listeners can engage in high… University Event Topic: Lectures & Meetings.

Linguistic Landscape student photo exhibition

University Events Linguistic landscape refers to the visual representation of language and languages that appear in public contexts within the larger symbolic landscape of a given territory, region or urban concentration. Such language can be found on public road signs, advertising, billboards, street signs, place names, commercial shop signs, public signs on government buildings, and graffiti. In recent years, researchers have begun to study these manifestations of language in order to understand how they reflect and contribute to discourses about language, politics and identity in the societies where they appear. The study of linguistic landscape has also been found to be valuable for students, particularly those on study abroad, as yet another way of understanding and “reading” the local cultures with which they enter into contact. In the summer of 2015, students who participated in Emory study abroad programs in China, Korea, Spain, and Austria conducted research projects on the linguistic landscapes of these study ab… University Event Topic: Academic Calendar.

Is it celebratory (comic like the Odyssey) or tragic (like the Iliad) in its worldview? Is it—as some think—propaganda for Roman imperialism or—as others think—a critique? Over five Monday evenings, Virgil scholar and Professor of Classics at Emory, Christine Perkell, will lead readers through the text, attending to the poetics of the text in order to under- stand how the poem generates such divergent interpretations among readers. Fee: $60 for Carlos Museum members; $85 for non-members. Registration is required by calling 404-727-6118. University Event Topic: Arts. Department/Organization: Carlos Museum. Monday, February 15, 2016, 7:30 PM – 9:00 PM. Michael C. Carlos Museum, Board Room, Level Two.

Greek Vase Painting Study Seminar

University Events Curator of Greek and Roman Art, Jasper Gaunt, leads a five-week study of the art of the ancient Greek vase. The course will explore the circumstances in which fine black- and red-figure wares were made in archaic and classical Greece, and the uses to which they were put by the living, and finally, by the dead. It begins by imagining the potter in his workshop, the range of shapes made and the functions they fulfilled. Close attention will be given to the techniques employed by the painter, the ways particular shapes are decorated, and clues to identify individual artists on stylistic grounds. Subject matter, taken both from mythology and from everyday life, will be examined in turn before concluding with a consideration of decorated pottery in the broader context of vessels in other materials. Emphasis will be placed on looking at examples in the galleries and during each class, and original works of art from the collection will be made available for study and handling.

Jean-Luc Godard Jean-Paul Belmondo aims his pistol up at the sun in Breathless (À bout de souffle, 1960), the very embodiment of the New Wave’s anarchic spirit. After Michel Poiccard (Belmondo) steals a car and shoots a cop, he returns to Paris and meets up with his American girlfriend (Jean Seberg).

CMBC Co-sponsored LECTURE: Cognitive Aesthetics: Beauty, the Brain, and Virginia Woolf / Patrick Colm Hogan / University of Connecticut

University Events Patrick Colm Hogan Department of English University of Connecticut In this talk, drawn from his book, Beauty and Sublimity: A Cognitive Aesthetics of Literature and the Arts (Cambridge University Press, 2016), Hogan outlines an account of aesthetic response that synthesizes the insights of cognitive neuroscience with those implicit in Virginia Woolf’s novel, Mrs. Dalloway. Hogan begins by briefly outlining an explanation of beauty based on human information processing (specifically, pattern isolation and prototype approximation). He goes on to consider complications. These complications include the simple, but highly consequential matter of differentiating judgments of beauty from aesthetic response. They also include the relative neglect of literature in neurologically-based discussions of beauty, which tend to focus on music or visual art. There is in addition the potentially more difficult issue of the relative neglect of emotion, beyond the reward system. Related to this last point, there is the ve… University Event Topic: Lectures & Meetings. School: Emory University. Department/Organization: Center for Faculty Development and Excellence.

The Ties that Bind: Life and Labor in Marx (and Derrida)

University Events The Emory Department of Comparative Literature Graduate Speakers Committee invites you to: The Ties that Bind: Life and Labor in Marx (and Derrida) A LECTURE BY: Dr. Benjamin Noys [The University of Chichester (UK)] The work of Marx has often been treated as an ontology and metaphysics of labor, and this ‘ontology’ has often been resisted in the name of life. In particular, in a series of recent theoretical works, the ‘savage ontology of life’ as Foucault names it, has been posed against the ‘limits’ of political economy and Marx. This talk will reconsider and critique these claims by a return to Marx, especially the early Marx, to explore the complexity of his probing of the binding of life and labor. This will be completed in the company of Jacques Derrida, suggesting a different reading of this 'metaphysics’ including different from Derrida’s own more critical claims in Specters of Marx. Professor Benjamin Noys is Professor of Critical Theory at the University of Chichester. He is the author… University Event Topic: Academic Calendar. Academics. College. Community. Faculty. Graduate.

You Are Who You Know: How Ethnic Attitudes and Interpersonal Interactions Shape One Another (Race & Difference Colloquium Series)

University Events When seeking to describe stereotyping and prejudice it is common to characterize them as something in the air, shaping individuals via biased media depictions and institutions that subjugate some while rewarding others.  In contrast, Professor Stacey Sinclair (Princeton University) describes how interpersonal interactions serve as a vehicle by which these cultural beliefs are translated into individual thoughts and behaviors that suborn social inequality.  One line of research shows that although people cannot consciously control their level of implicit prejudice, this form of prejudice can shift as a function of fleeting interpersonal interactions.  When one is motivated to affiliate with another person, his or her ethnic attitudes spontaneously converge toward the perceived opinions of that person. A second line of research shows that implicit prejudice also regulates interpersonal interactions, even those between in-group members.  That is, greater implicit prejudice among Whites is associated with express… School: Emory College.

Carlos Reads Book Club

University Events The Aeneid has been the most famous text (after the Bible) in the western world for 2000 years. Indeed, T.S. Eliot called it the “classic of all Europe.” Nevertheless, there rages currently a debate among Virgil scholars as to the most fundamental meaning of the poem. Is it celebratory (comic like the Odyssey) or tragic (like the Iliad) in its worldview? Is it—as some think—propaganda for Roman imperialism or—as others think—a critique? Over five Monday evenings, Virgil scholar and Professor of Classics at Emory, Christine Perkell, will lead readers through the text, attending to the poetics of the text in order to under- stand how the poem generates such divergent interpretations among readers. Fee: $60 for Carlos Museum members; $85 for non-members. Registration is required by calling 404-727-6118. University Event Topic: Arts. Department/Organization: Carlos Museum.

"How Maulana Jamal Mian became Pakistani" - Guest Lecture - Francis Robinson

University Events Dr. Francis Robinson, Professor of the History of South Asia, Royal Holloway, University of London "How Maulana Jamal Mian became Pakistani" This presentation will discuss the life and ideas of Maulana Jamal Mian (1919-2011), one of the last people fully formed in the Islamic scholarly tradition of Farangi Mahall, an intellectual tradition that deeply influenced 19th and 20th century Muslim culture in South Asia.  Maulana Jamal Mian never wished to become Pakistani, even though he had fought for a separate nation-state for Muslims in the Indian subcontinent.  This presentation is about the unpleasant experiences of Indian Muslims after independence, the steady imposition of technologies of the modern state in enforcing the reality of Partition, the slow realization of the elite that they were constrained by new national realities.

Greek Vase Painting Study Seminar

University Events Curator of Greek and Roman Art, Jasper Gaunt, leads a five-week study of the art of the ancient Greek vase. The course will explore the circumstances in which fine black- and red-figure wares were made in archaic and classical Greece, and the uses to which they were put by the living, and finally, by the dead. It begins by imagining the potter in his workshop, the range of shapes made and the functions they fulfilled. Close attention will be given to the techniques employed by the painter, the ways particular shapes are decorated, and clues to identify individual artists on stylistic grounds. Subject matter, taken both from mythology and from everyday life, will be examined in turn before concluding with a consideration of decorated pottery in the broader context of vessels in other materials. Emphasis will be placed on looking at examples in the galleries and during each class, and original works of art from the collection will be made available for study and handling.

University Events John Hawks Department of Anthropology University of Wisconsin, Madison Hominin remains were discovered in October, 2013 within the Rising Star cave system, inside the Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site, South Africa.

The hominin remains represent a minimum of 15 individuals of a previously undiscovered hominin species, which we have named Homo naledi. Aside from its subtantially smaller brain, H. naledi is cranially similar to early Homo species such as Homo habilis, Homo rudolfensis and early Homo erectus, but its postcranial anatomy presents a mosaic that has never before been observed, including very humanlike feet and lower legs, a primitive australopith-like pelvis and proximal femur, primitive ribcage and shoulder configuration, generally humanlike wrists and hand proportions, combined with ver… University Event Topic: Lectures & Meetings.

Lecture

University Events Fierce Amazons, women who gloried in fighting and freedom, are at the center of some of the most famous Greek myths.

Combining myth and art, nomad traditions, and archaeology, this lecture will reveal intimate, surprising details and original insights about the bold women known as Amazons. The Carlos Museum Bookshop will offer Dr. Mayor’s latest book, The Amazons: Lives and Legends of Warrior Women across the Ancient World, for sale at the event. University Event Topic: Arts.

Carlos Reads Book Club

University Events The Aeneid has been the most famous text (after the Bible) in the western world for 2000 years. Indeed, T.S. Eliot called it the “classic of all Europe.” Nevertheless, there rages currently a debate among Virgil scholars as to the most fundamental meaning of the poem. Is it celebratory (comic like the Odyssey) or tragic (like the Iliad) in its worldview? Is it—as some think—propaganda for Roman imperialism or—as others think—a critique? Over five Monday evenings, Virgil scholar and Professor of Classics at Emory, Christine Perkell, will lead readers through the text, attending to the poetics of the text in order to under- stand how the poem generates such divergent interpretations among readers. Fee: $60 for Carlos Museum members; $85 for non-members. Registration is required by calling 404-727-6118. University Event Topic: Arts. Department/Organization: Carlos Museum.

Why Don’t More Black Students Take AP Math Courses? Racialized Tracking, Social Isolation and the ‘Acting White’ Hypothesis (Race & Difference Colloquium Series)

University Events Conceptually, black students may be less likely to take advanced courses even when they are academically eligible if they are at risk of social isolation. This is most likely to happen in schools that are segregated along racial lines with advanced courses populated mainly by white students and general or remedial education courses populated mainly by black students. In this Race and Difference Colloquium, Economics Professor Dani Francis (UMass-Amherst) examines the effects of within-school segregation on the propensity of academically eligible black high school students to take advanced math courses. School: Emory College. Department/Organization: James Weldon Johnson Institute for the Study of Race and Difference. Building/Room: Robert W. Woodruff Library. Speaker/Presenter: Dania Francis (Assistant Professor of Economics and Afro-American Studies, University of Massachusetts at Amherst). Cost: Free.

CMBC LECTURE: Ockham’s Razor ─ When is the Simpler Theory Better? / Elliott Sober / University of Wisconsin

University Events Elliott Sober Department of Philosophy University of Wisconsin Many scientists believe that the search for simple theories is not optional; rather, it is a requirement of the scientific enterprise. When theories get too complex, scientists reach for Ockham’s razor, the principle of parsimony, to do the trimming. This principle says that a theory that postulates fewer entities, processes, or causes is better than a theory that postulates more, so long as the simpler theory is compatible with what we observe. Ockham’s razor presents a puzzle. It is obvious that simple theories may be beautiful and easy to remember and understand. The hard problem is to explain why the fact that one theory is simpler than another tells you anything about the way the world is. In my lecture, I’ll describe two solutions.
