"Why Not Cultural Systems?" Charles Birnbaum Lecture

Why Not Cultural Systems? Charles A. Birnbaum, FASLA, FAAR President + CEO, The Cultural Landscape Foundation The public and critical recognition of the role of landscape architecture and landscape architects in shaping our shared public realm is growing.  However, the cultural value of our shared landscape legacy is often little known or understood, and most arbiters of this legacy (including architecture critics) are often ill-equipped to assess and contextualize it particularly when threats to significant works of landscape architecture arise. The time has come for practitioners to play a key role in expanding this discourse. This presentation will begin by laying out the challenges and opportunities of this current situation and will conclude with several successful project examples (including recent works by West 8 and Raymond Jungles), selected by the presenter that meet and exceed the presenter’s challenge to value history and culture at an equivalent level that is often placed on natural and… Campus location: Architecture Hall (ARC).

BLA Info Session

Landscape Architecture involves design thinking and practice in the making and sustaining of our built environments. It serves to engage the wants, needs, and aspirations of people and communities while systematically seeking to improve the functions and qualities of the natural world. It encompasses a broad spectrum of practices from design of streetscapes to restoration of habitats and ecosystems. Landscape architects are, in a sense, architects of the landscape–the landscape that encompasses both natural and social realms, urbanity and wilderness, land, water and air. They design not only for people and communities, but for plants and animals, to support social and natural processes, and to protect human and environmental assets.

Borden Lecture in Theoretical Chemistry: Prof. James Skinner

Borden Endowed Lecture in Theoretical Chemistry Professor James L. Skinner – Institute for Molecular Engineering, University of Chicago "Anomalies in ambient and supercooled water: is there a second critical point lurking nearby?" Liquid water displays a number of anomalies, including the famous density maximum at 4 C and the compressibility minimum at 46 C. Moreover, the density decreases markedly and the compressibility increases rapidly as the temperature is further decreased below 0 C and the liquid becomes supercooled. Finally, the density decrease upon freezing is also anomalous.  In this talk I will explore possible microscopic and thermodynamic origins of these anomalies, present experimental, simulation, and theoretical evidence for the presence of a liquid-liquid critical point in deeply supercooled water, and argue that this critical point, even though far removed in temperature and pressure from ambient water, is nonetheless responsible for its anomalies.

Burges Endowed Lecture 2019

Featuring Professor David A. Stahl Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering, University of Washington Human activities have greatly altered the forms and abundances of carbon and nitrogen in the environment. While the impacts of fossil fuel burning and deforestation receive the most attention, humans also profoundly alter the nitrogen economy by producing nitrogen for agriculture purposes. Although this is essential for sustaining half of the human population, the downside is great monetary and environmental costs, as the energy intensive process consumes up to 2% of the world's annual energy supply. To complicate matters, more than half of the nitrogen produced for agricultural purposes is lost as a consequence of microbial activity, cascading through the atmosphere and terrestrial, freshwater, and marine ecosystems. This contributes to nitrate contamination of groundwater, reduced soil fertility, regional nutrient imbalances, increased emissions of atmospherically active gases (NO and N2O), and e… Campus location: Alder Hall.

Amy Peloff - Should I Still Watch This Show? Pop Culture in the #MeToo Era

In the wake of the #MeToo movement, in which dozens of high-profile individuals in the entertainment industry have been accused of harassment or abuse, many of us are asking: “Should I still be watching this?” Explore the cultural and economic issues inherent in consuming entertainment made by people whose behaviors we find questionable, distasteful, or even criminal. Media and feminism scholar Amy Peloff will ask important questions including: How do we weigh the cultural value of art against the behavior of the individual creating it? What do we think accountability in the #MeToo movement should look like? Do the decisions we make around our pop culture consumption even matter? Join us for a conversation about the value of art and entertainment—and the value of being held to account. *Contains mature themes.

“The Art of Leaving” with Canadian Author Ayelet Tsabari: Language, Longing, and Belonging

Canadian author Ayelet Tsabari will discuss her new memoir, “The Art of Leaving,” with Sasha Senderovich (Slavic & Jewish Studies) in this evening of conversation and selected readings from the book. “The Art of Leaving” traces Tsabari’s journey from her childhood home on the outskirts of Tel Aviv to Vancouver and Toronto — and from her native Hebrew to her adopted English — alongside the story of her grandparents’ migration from Yemen to the land of Israel in the 1930s. An astute observer of lives of Mizrahi Jews (Jews of Arab lands) in Israel and beyond in her award-winning short story collection “The Best Place on Earth” (2016), in “The Art of Leaving” Tsabari delivers a powerful coming-of-age story that reflects on identity and belonging and explores themes of family and home — both inherited and chosen.

Public Lecture with Aldon Morris

W.E.B. Du Bois at the Center: From Science, Civil Rights Movement to Black Lives Matter W.E.B. Du Bois was one of a handful of 20th century scholars with a sustained global impact on sociological, literary, and political thought. In this talk, Dr. Morris will draw on evidence from his just published and award-winning book, The Scholar Denied, to demonstrate that Du Bois was the founding father of scientific sociology in the United States. In other words, American scientific sociology was founded at a historic black university (Atlanta University) by a Black man, his colleagues and students, not by white sociologists at elite white universities, such as what became known as the “Chicago School.” This talk will explore the methods Du Bois pioneered and his novel theorizing that laid the foundations for subsequent ground-breaking empirical studies of racial inequality and the role of black activism to overthrow racial oppression.

Winter Colloquium Series - Markus Gabriel

Location: Savery Hall Room 408 Title: On the Essence and Existence of so-called “Fictional Objects” Markus Gabriel Professor of Philosophy Bonn University It is an equally widespread and erroneous assumption in contemporary ontology that fictional objects belong to the class of absolutely non-existent objects. In this paper, I argue for a view I call “ontological relativism about non-existence”. According to this position, there are no absolute non-existence facts. What there is not, depends on what there is in a field of sense. The field of sense of fictional objects turns out to be constituted by the ontological fact that its objects are essentially interpretation-dependent. They would not have existed, had they not been exposed to an interpretation. In this context, I will introduce a distinction between “hermeneutical” and “meta-hermeneutical” objects and defend the view that fictional objects have their essence in virtue of meta-hermeneutical contexts (which I call “scores”), while they are… Campus location: Savery Hall (SAV).

Walker-Ames Lecture - Markus Gabriel

Location: Kane Hall, Room 110 Title: "Objectivity and the Humanities--Prospects for a New Realism" In this lecture, Markus Gabriel will argue that we need to change our paradigm concerning objectivity in the humanities. Over the last decades, the humanities have come under pressure from the scientific worldview. To many, it seems as if the humanities provide us at best with less-than-objective knowledge claims.  Arguably, there are at least two overall reasons for this. On the one hand, the scientific worldview tends to associate objectivity with the kind of knowledge-acquisition, explanation, and justification characteristic of the natural sciences. On the other hand, the humanities themselves have contributed to the impression that they might be less relevant than the natural sciences to epistemic progress due to internal problems having to do with the very concept(s) of knowledge, reality and objectivity. New Realism is a term for a whole series of current trends in philosophy that has important… Campus location: Kane Hall (KNE). Campus room: Kane Hall, Room 110. Event types: Lectures/Seminars.

Global Parenting in Taiwan: How Globalization Shapes Family Lives across Class Divides with Professor Pei-chia Lan

Please note date/time and venue change; new date/time and venue shown here. In her new book Raising Global Families: Parenting, Immigration, and Class in Taiwan and the US (Stanford 2018), Professor Lan uses parenting as an empirical lens to examine cultural transformation and persisting inequality in the contexts of globalization and immigration. This talk focuses on the distinct strategies of “global parenting” among Taiwanese families across the socioeconomic spectrum. Professional middle-class parents employ divergent educational strategies to pursue cosmopolitan parenting: some arrange international school and bilingual programs to prepare their children for the imminent future of global competition, while some others choose Western-influenced alternative curriculums to escape the tradition of rote learning and academic pressure. Globalization touches the lives of working-class families in very different ways. Taiwanese men, who suffer from rising economic insecurity due to capital outflow and labor i… Campus location: William H. Gates Hall (LAW). Campus room: 127. Event types: Academics.

Iranian Jews in the Twentieth Century: Between Iranian Nationalism, Communism, and Zionism

The 2019 Afrassiabi Distinguished Lecture in Persian and Iranian Studies with Lior Sternfeld, Assistant Professor of History and Jewish Studies, Penn State University In the early 20th century, the Iranian Jewish communities were largely disenfranchised, marginalized, and impoverished. About 80 percent belonged to the lowest social and economic classes, 10 percent were part of the emerging middle class, and 10 percent counted among the country’s elites. By the 1979 revolution, that situation had changed. 10 percent were impoverished, 80 percent belonged to the middle classes, and 10 percent remained in the elite. By the 1979 revolution, Jews played a role in every Iranian political camp: as supporters of the monarchy or the revolutionary movements. This talk analyzes the institutional history of the Jewish communities in Iran—and the pivotal role they played in facilitating integration and other social developments. The examples to be discussed will help us understand how Iran’s Jews adjusted to a rapidly… Campus location: Kane Hall (KNE). Campus room: Room 110. Event types: Lectures/Seminars.

ISA Advanced Tree Appraisal: Anchoring Appraisals with Multiple Methods

Most appraisal training is focused on a very narrow slice of the world of tree appraisal: the Trunk Formula Technique. This course explores other methods that can be used by tree appraisers and why. The course begins with an explanation of the concept of anchoring and how to evaluate the reliability, accuracy, and precision of data points. It then gives an overview of all three approaches to appraisal: cost, market, and income. It dives in and explores methods of appraising partial loss, diminution of market value, percentage contribution, and net present value. Next, participants have an opportunity to reconcile the many possible methods as they are applied to a given assignment. The last third of the class is a series of case studies that give participants the opportunity to practice applying the methods discussed in class and to then choose and defend their own final appraisal conclusion.

Japanese Factors in Building Understanding on Confucian Tradition in Modern Korea

As the Confucian characteristics of Japanese modernization, especially Meiji Restoration has been confirmed by recent researches, it became necessary to examine the origin of the misunderstanding of totally contradictory relations between Confucianism and Modernity in modern Japan. As the Japanese government took the policy of Westernization, the discourses criticizing Confucianism as an obstruction for modernization became the major ones from the beginning of the Meiji era. Fukuzawa Yukichi was a representative intellectual of this perspective which was not correct as based on limited understanding of the Confucianism by mainly focusing on its political and social role in the Tokugawa era. Since the 1880s, Confucianism revived as an ideological constituent not only of the authoritarian regime by the government but also of nationalism movement by the intellectuals of the younger generation. As based on modern political interests as like state-building and nation-building, their understandings of Confucianism… Campus location: Communications Building (CMU). Campus room: 120.

Beth Holmgren presents THE CABARET GOES TO THE GHETTO: The Fate of the Great Polish Jewish Songbook

This talk explores how acculturated Jewish lyricists defined and celebrated the look and lifestyle of modern Warsaw, Poland's most cosmopolitan city between the world wars. Though their songs were never expressly identified as Jewish, these writers, in effect, had created a songbook roughly equivalent to the Great American Songbook composed in the first half of the twentieth century on the other side of the Atlantic. The talk subsequently examines how this Great Polish Jewish Songbook resonated for its authors after the Nazis had forced them from their beloved big city into the Ghetto in 1940, where they lived, worked, and died in close quarters with an extraordinary spectrum of Jews from elsewhere. Did these artists continue to cherish or disown their creation? Did Polish history recognize their authorship after the Holocaust? Beth Holmgren is a professor of Polish and Russian cultures at Duke University. She is the author of Starring Madame Modjeska: On Tour in Poland and America (2012) and Warsaw is M… Campus location: Thomson Hall (THO). Campus room: 101. Event types: Lectures/Seminars.

BLA Info Session

Landscape Architecture involves design thinking and practice in the making and sustaining of our built environments. It serves to engage the wants, needs, and aspirations of people and communities while systematically seeking to improve the functions and qualities of the natural world. It encompasses a broad spectrum of practices from design of streetscapes to restoration of habitats and ecosystems. Landscape architects are, in a sense, architects of the landscape–the landscape that encompasses both natural and social realms, urbanity and wilderness, land, water and air. They design not only for people and communities, but for plants and animals, to support social and natural processes, and to protect human and environmental assets.

In the Heart of America

By Naomi Wallace Directed by Amanda Friou, 3rd year MFA director March 6 - 17, 2019 Previews March 2 & 5 A young Palestinian-American woman’s quest to learn what happened to her brother, Remzi, who lost his life in the first Gulf War, leads her to a Kentuckian soldier named Craver. Through a poetic web of time leaps and apparitions, we watch the two men fall in love as she unravels the mystery. Woven into that story, the ghost of a Vietnamese mother, Lu Ming, seeks justice for her infant daughter, a victim of the 1968 massacre at My Lai. Obie Award-winning Playwright Naomi Wallace, known for her signature blend of politics, eroticism, and lyricism, here masterfully rings the gong of histories that still reverberate through our national body.
