Prof Theo Cateforis to present lecture at Binghamton University: "Soft/Loud: Form and Meaning in Alternative Rock of the 1990s"

Sep 17, 2019, 4:30 PM-6:00 PM

IASH Conference Room LN 1106, Binghamton University

Soft/Loud: Form and Meaning in Alternative Rock of the 1990s

From the twelve-bar blue and AABA to the verse/chorus, the history of rock music has featured various song forms that have proven to be durable generic types. In the 1990s, alternative rock ushered in a novel twist on the verse/chorus – a song form often referred to as the “soft/loud” – that became one of the genre’s and era’s strongest sonic markers. With its volatile juxtaposition of restrained verses and explosive choruses, featured most notably on Nirvana’s famed 1991 single “Smells like Teen Spirit,” the soft/loud song form came to signify alternative rock’s rebellious underground ethos and its subversion of popular mainstream standards. Since then, the soft/loud has spread to genres as far flung as rap-metal, emo, indie, and power pop.

Dr. Cateforis’ talk considers some possible pre-cursors of the soft/loud song form, from the classic rock of the 1960s and 70s to the power ballads of the 1980s, as points of comparison, while noting the significant differences the song form assumed in the 19002 – for example in the music of artist like P.J. Harvey and Courtney Love of Hole who employed the soft/loud to reject the compliant sexual objectification of earlier female musicians. Just as the soft/loud became one of alternative rock’s most recognizable socio-cultural and sonic signatures, the paper concludes by arguing that the nuances of this song form can also serve as a means of tracing the genre’s supposed “death” over the course of the late 19090s, when numerous critics bemoaned the ubiquity and commercial saturation of the soft/loud as evidence of the genre’s demise.

The Missing Pages: The Modern Life of a Medieval Manuscript, from Genocide to Justice

Sep 11, 2019, 5:00 PM-6:30 PM

220 Eggers Hall

Heghnar Zeitlian Watenpaugh,
Professor of Art History,
University of California, Davis

Art history, histories of genocide, cultural heritage, and the questions of the continuity of the medieval and the modern intersect in the biography of a medieval Armenian Gospels manuscript. Eight of its illuminated pages were discovered in the J. Paul Getty Museum in 2010, prompting a lawsuit. The tale of the separation of the pages from the manuscript tells a story of genocide and survival, and makes the case for a human right to art.

Heghnar Zeitlian Watenpaugh is Professor of Art History at the University of California, Davis. She researches the visual cultures of the Middle East, including issues of architectural preservation, museums, and cultural heritage. Her first book, The Image of an Ottoman City: Imperial Architecture and Urban Experience in Aleppo in the Sixteenth and Seventeenth Centuries, received the Spiro Kostof Book Award from the Society of Architectural Historians in 2006. Her scholarly publications have also won the Best Article Prize from the Syrian Studies Association, and the Ömer Lütfi Barkan Article Prize from the Ottoman and Turkish Studies Association. She was the guest editor for a special issue of the International Journal of Islamic Architecture, on “Cultural Heritage and the Arab Spring” (2016). Her research has been supported by fellowships from the J. Paul Getty Trust, National Endowment for the Humanities, Fulbright-Hays, Social Science Research Council, the Center for Advanced Study in the Visual Arts at the National Gallery of Art, and the Office of the President of the University of California. She has served on the executive boards of the Society of Architectural Historians, the Syrian Studies Association, and the Historians of Islamic Art Association. In addition to her scholarship, her writing has appeared in the Los Angeles Times, and was featured in a BBC series about cultural heritage lost during the current conflict in Syria.

Her new book, The Missing Pages: The Modern Life of a Medieval Manuscript, from Genocide to Justice, was published by Stanford University Press in 2019

Sponsors: History,
Art and Music Histories,
Middle Eastern Studies, and Religion

Closing Reception / Call to Action
on Saturday, August 24th, 2-5pm

The original construction of Interstate 81 devastated a neighborhood that was home to Syracuse’s working-class black community, previously known as the 15th ward.  It severed the social fabric of the community, destroyed swaths of buildings, and physically isolated the south side of Syracuse from wealthier neighborhoods. It contributed to the severe racial segregation of public schools by limiting housing access and facilitating white flight. The replacement of I-81 presents an opportunity to right the wrongs of the past. The new construction can either entrench existing segregation or it can create openings to rebuild Syracuse to become more racially and socioeconomically integrated.

Department of Art and Music Histories Spring 2019 Colloquium

Dr. Ana Mendez-Oliver (Visiting Assistant Professor of Spanish, Hispanic Literatures and Cultures, Syracuse University)

THURSDAY, 18 April 2019, 4:30PM, Tolley Humanities Building 304, Syracuse University

At the Metropolitan Opera House, each opera is like a museum piece. It is the responsibility of producers, conductors, singers, musicians, dramaturges, subtitles writers, and translators, among others, to preserve the hundreds year-old tradition of the opera to their new productions. In the Spring 2019 Art and Music Histories Colloquium, Dr. Ana Mendez-Oliver will examine the role and process of adapting an opera’s libretto into the opera’s subtitles at the Met, and, later, as part of the Met’s Live in HD series. She will especially look into the role of the translator of the subtitles, in particular the case of the subtitles in Spanish. Mendez-Oliver will describe how her training in literature and modern languages (Spanish, French and Italian) informs her work as a translator, and provides a valuable insight at the Department of Titles at the Met. She will also address the challenges that a translator encounters when translating a two-hundred or three-hundred-year-old opera to a contemporary audience, such as: different notions of representation of gender, ethnicity, and race on the stage, the creation of a uniform standard Spanish for a general Latin American audience, and how to abridge the untranslatable from one culture and language to the other.

Richard Wolf (Harvard University): Impression and Presence in Badakhshan and Beyond

Apr 16, 2019, 12:30 PM-1:30 PM

Co-sponsored by the Department of Art and Music Histories and the Central Asia and the Caucasus Research Group

Impression and Presence in Badakhshan and Beyond

Writers in Arabic and Persian have used notions of impression, effect, or influence, ta’sīr, to express how qualities of human character correspond to the sounds of music and poetry, and argued that the latter can actually shape the former.  Focusing on the tradition of singing in the region of Darvoz—literally the gateway to the mountainous historical region known as Badakhshan in Tajikistan and Afghanistan—Wolf will make two points:  1) the relation of “presence” to “impression” is concretized through different forms of musical transmission, and 2) texts are seen to impress themselves on listeners by particular musical means.

His engaging lecture style combined with his meticulous research methods and the far-reaching implications of his work on Dante and medieval Italian literature promise to inspire everyone from language and poetry scholars to medievalists from diverse interdisciplinary backgrounds.

Biography: Zygmunt G. Barański is Serena Professor of Italian Emeritus at the University of Cambridge and Notre Dame Professor of Dante & Italian Studies at the University of Notre Dame. He has published extensively on Dante and on medieval and modern Italian literature and culture.

Larry Blumenfeld and Linda May Han Oh | She Played it Like That: Jazz Listening Party with Belfer Archives

Peter Graham Scholarly Commons, 114 Bird Library

For more information contact Eric Grode (ejgrode@syr.edu)

Larry Blumenfeld (Brooklyn,NY)
Linda May Han Oh (Perth, Australia)

The music of female composers, arrangers, performers and bandleaders has always shaped jazz and its context. Yet it can now be heard and considered anew, in light of a changed consciousness surrounding gender and identity as they relate to culture. This listening party, jointly-hosted and co-curated by Larry and Linda, with assistance from Belfer Archives, celebrates and investigates that legacy.

Born in Malaysia and raised in Perth, Western Australia, Linda May Han Oh is an active bassist and composer who has performed with the likes of Dave Douglas, Joe Lovano, Geri Allen, Terri Lyne Carrington and Pat Metheny. She teaches in the jazz program of The New School, and is a founding member of We Have Voice, a collective whose mission and activity “is centered around developing an understanding of, and working toward equity and the creation of, safe(r) spaces in the performing arts.” Among her many awards is a 2019 Chamber Music America New Jazz Works Commission. Her fifth album as a bandleader, "Aventurine," will be released on Biophilia Records in May.

Cormac Newark (Guildhall School of Music & Drama)| Guest lecture: The Phantom on Film

Apr 1, 2019, 5:00 PM-7:00 PM

Peter Graham Scholarly Commons, 114 Bird Library

For more information contact: Sarah Fuchs (sefuchss@syr.edu)

Free and Open to All

Gaston Leroux’s Le Fantôme de l’Opéra (1909–10) may not be great literature, but it is a unique record of the most important social and artistic institution in the ‘capital of the nineteenth century’, Paris. More significant still, since the novel’s publication it has radically transcended that historical-geographical specificity and become the object of constant creative re-interpretation all over the world. Nowhere is this more compellingly illustrated than in the fifty-plus screen adaptations—silent films and talkies, horror films and musicals, cartoons and telenovelas and more—that have been made in places as far apart as Hollywood, Brazil and China between 1916 and today. In this talk, Cormac Newark (Guildhall School of Music & Drama) discusses a global interdisciplinary research project, funded by the Leverhulme Trust, that he has led over the past three years to map the mechanisms and extraordinary extent of cultural transfer represented by the ‘Phantom on Film’ phenomenon. By way of a brief case-study, he will attempt to address the reasons why the Italian adaptations (1964–1998, by directors ranging from Dario Argento to Joe D’Amato) feature so much more sex than all the others.

The Jeannette K. Watson Distinguished Visiting Professorship in the Humanities

Jazz in Troubled Times: The Relevance and Resonance of a Culture

Through a two-week residency at Syracuse University as Watson Visiting Professor for 2019, cultural journalist and music critic Larry Blumenfeld examines jazz as an aesthetic construct, a living culture, a language of many dialects, a personalized science and a framework for thought and action as related to social justice. Through lectures, presentations, workshops and public discussions, he looks beyond conventional histories and limitations of genre and style to tell stories of empowering legacies, ongoing struggles and essential cross-cultural connections. He proposes jazz as a resonant form and relevant framework for understanding personal and communal identities in turbulent times. He also investigates timeless traditions of improvisation, and the current relationship between arts and activism. In doing so, Blumenfeld draws on his 30 years of journalism and criticism; his immersion in the jazz cultures of New York, New Orleans and Havana; and his ongoing dialogues with celebrated musicians.

The Department of Art and Music Histories is a co-sponsor of the Watson Visiting Professor for 2019.

Slow Disaster at the Digital Edge: A Performance by Jackie Orr with digital artist Dovar Chen

Mar 5, 2019, 5:00 PM-6:15 PM

Sims 123

Free and Open to All

This live performance piece, Slow Disaster at the Digital Edge, assembles together the ‘deep time’ of petro-capitalism, with the slow catastrophe of ordinary time and its exhaustion through everyday practices of repetition and disposability. Animated by the Situationists’ call for a radical popular politics of form, Slow Disaster re-invents an image archive of the BP oil disaster in spring 2010. The performance is composed of a series of digital formats, each attuned differently to the re-distributions of memory, time, presence—and performance itself—rendered through the plastic arts of digital media. Drawing on the powers of trauma and a punk digital aesthetics, the performance asks: How to render thinkable a catastrophe that unfolds across unthinkable, non-human time scales? What forms of scholarly thought are adequate to the times, and to reformattings of affect and knowledge via new digital economies? How to perform a tactical lamentation for a time beyond the wasted time of a slow, dispersed apocalypse?

Artist Talk: A Stirring Song Sung Heroic: African Americans from Slavery to Freedom, 1619 to 1865

Jan 29, 2019, 2:15 PM-4:15 PM

Shemin Auditorium, Shaffer Art Building

Contact: Emily Dittman SUArt Galleries

Free and Open to All

Photographer and curator William Earle Williams presents an Artist Talk in correlation to the SUArt Galleries exhibition, A Stirring Song Sung Heroic: African Americans from Slavery to Freedom, 1619 to 1865. Williams' photographs have been widely exhibited at venues including the National Gallery of Art, Cleveland Art Museum, and the African American Museum, and are in many public collections including the National Gallery of Art, Baltimore Museum of Art, Brooklyn Museum, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. He has curated over eighty exhibitions featuring the work of Diane Arbus, Walker Evans, Paul Strand, and Harold Edgerton among others.

This exhibition presents the history of American slavery across a series of 135 black and white silver gelatin prints.  These images document mostly anonymous, unheralded, and uncelebrated places in the New World—from the Caribbean to North America—where Americans black and white determined the meaning of freedom. Archives of prints, newspapers, and other ephemera related to the struggle accompany the work.

A Gallery Reception follows the event, from 5-7 p.m.

Robert Shetterly talk: "Americans Who Tell the Truth: Models of Courageous Citizenship."

Setnor Auditorium, Crouse College

For more information contact: Sunju Raybeck at sraybeck@syr.edu or 315.443.5850

Free and Open to the Public

TODAY! November 29, 2018 | 7:30 p.m.| Setnor Auditorium, Crouse College. Come hear a thought-provoking talk by Robert Shetterly. "Americans Who Tell the Truth: Models of Courageous Citizenship."

Shetterly taught himself drawing, printmaking and painting after graduating from Harvard College with a degree in English literature. His work appears in collections across the United States and Europe. Along with his “Americans Who Tell the Truth” series, Shetterly is well known for his series of 70 painted etchings based on William Blake’s “Proverbs of Hell” and for another series of 50 painted etchings reflecting on the metaphor of the Annunciation.

He began “Americans Who Tell the Truth” in the early 2000s. Shetterly says the portraits have given him an opportunity to speak with children and adults throughout the United States about “the necessity of dissent in a democracy, the obligations of citizenship, sustainability, U.S. history, and how democracy cannot function if politicians don’t tell the truth, if the media don’t report it, and if the people don’t demand it.”

Shetterly will bring the full collection of his masterwork portrait series “Americans Who Tell the Truth: Models of Courageous Citizenship,” marking the first time all 235 pieces will be displayed publicly in one location. Combining art and other media, the series “offers resources to inspire a new generation of engaged Americans who will act for the common good, our communities, and the Earth.”

The collection will be displayed in Panasci Lounge from November 26 through December 14. On November 29th, the artist will take part in an on-stage conversation with two of his subjects—Richard Bowen and Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha.

Support for Shetterly’s appearance and the exhibition of his portrait series is provided in part by the Syracuse University Lecture Series.

As Zechner describes, Waxman’s career relied on the intermingling networks of the international movie and music industries. Global political circumstance affected these industries – and Waxman’s activities as a composer, conductor, and festival organizer.

Witkin & Witkin: Twin Stories of a Photographer and a Painter

Nov 13, 2018, 6:30 PM-9:30 PM

Joyce Hergenhan Auditorium, Newhouse 3

For more information contact: Roger Hallas, rhallas@syr.edu

Reception at 6.30pm, screening to follow with Q&A with Jerome Witkin and Trisha Ziff

Witkin & Witkin explores the worlds of identical twin brothers, Joel-Peter Witkin, world famous photographer and super star of contemporary art photography and his brother Jerome Witkin, a realist painter and a life-long art teacher at Syracuse University. The film looks at the distinct paths both artists have taken in their lives as well as addressing the parallels and resonances between their work. An intensely human film that addresses the philosophy of their practices, their art and their relationship. A film about perception, two artists working in different media who come from the same childhood experiences but see the world through radically different prisms. Filmed in Mexico City, Albuquerque, Los Angeles, Brooklyn and Syracuse. Although identical twins, Joel-Peter and Jerome are strangers for the most part, who remain invested, despite their age, in maintaining their distance from each other. The film explores their vast and important bodies of work, the impact that Joel-Peter Witkin’s work has had on popular culture from the Nine Inch Nails to Alexander McQueen, and how, in contrast, Jerome’s work has been impacted by the events of his time. A painter who bears witness to history and a photographer who lives and creates from both the real world and the imaginary.

This event is part of Syracuse Symposium: 2018-19: Stories and are co-sponsored by the Newhouse School, the Provost’s Office, Syracuse University Art Galleries and the departments of English, Transmedia, Studio Arts and Art & Music Histories.

“The Kingdom of God is Abstraction: Modernism and Sacred Space”

Nov 12, 2018, 5:00 PM-7:00 PM

BIRD 114 (Peter Graham Scholarly Commons)

For more information contact: Prof Glenn Peers, gapeers@syr.edu

Free and Open to All

A lecture to be given by Dr. Eric Wolf, Head Librarian, Sotheby’s Institute of Art, New York

The vague term “spiritual” is often applied to a certain tradition of Post-War modernism; direct allusions to religious art can often be found in this corpus.  Artists including Barnett Newman, Mark Rothko, Louise Nevelson, James Turrell, Agnes Martin, and Ellsworth Kelly have all addressed the sacred through abstraction, and used their art to create sacred space.  In a moment of art history when the figurative has returned to dominance, how and why does abstraction become associated with the spiritual? How are such works displayed, and cared for?  What additional stewardship obligations do museums who collect such works face?

Presented by the Department of Art and Music Histories, and Co-sponsored by Bird Library, the Departments of History and Religion, Hendricks Chapel, Syracuse University Humanities Center, the Medieval and Renaissance Studies Program, and the Co-Curricular Fund of the College of Arts and Sciences.

Reshaping Film History: Race and Place in American Nontheatrical Film

Screening and lecture by Professor Marsha Gordon (North Carolina State University)

Wednesday, November 7, 7pm

107 Hall of Languages

Whether viewed in a department store, classroom, church, or community center, nontheatrical films engaging with race allowed diverse audiences to encounter representations that they could not experience in movie theaters, where such representations tended to be both stereotypical and marginal. Prof. Gordon’s presentation will argue for the ways that film history should be reconsidered through a more inclusive consideration of racially diverse student films, educational films, sponsored films, anthropological and ethnographic films, community made and screened films, church films, home movies, and other types of “useful” films.  Drawing on a recently completed book project co-edited with Dr. Allyson Nadia Field (University of Chicago), Prof. Gordon will screen three short student films, all made in Los Angeles between 1965 and 1976, to illustrate both the richness and the value of a more inclusive imagination of American and documentary film history.

Presented by the Department of English and the Lender Center for Social Justice

Co-sponsored by the College of Arts and Sciences, Communication and Rhetorical Studies, Cultural Foundations of Education and History

On the Affect of Crafting: Third Millennium BCE Copper Arrowheads from Ganeshwar, Rajasthan

Oct 30, 2018, 12:30 PM-2:00 PM

341 Eggers Hall

Emera Bridger Wilson (elbridge@syr.edu)

Free and Open to All

This study is at its core an interrogation of materiality and crafting, a consideration of the situatedness of the technological practice itself, and the forms of relationships that exist between all things transformed in the act of crafting: bodies, minerals and landscapes. Linked to those transformations, is the concept of cultural resonance the results in the resilience and repetition of certain styles and forms of copper arrowheads across the Northern India during the third millennium BCE. Morphological consistency is theorized as producing affective responses that engender feelings of belonging: one belongs through things.

Lecture by Prof Douglas Dow, Kansas State University: “The Memory of Ingenious Things: Late Renaissance Altarpieces by Giovanni Battista Naldini and Bernardino Poccetti at Santa Maria del Carmine in Florence”

Oct 26, 2018, 2:00 PM-4:00 PM

Peter Graham Scholarly Commons (114 Bird Library)

Sally Cornelison, sjcornel@syr.edu

Free and Open to All

Prof. Dow is a specialist in the history of Italian Renaissance art whose work focuses on the religious art of the late sixteenth century in Florence—a period that has long been neglected in the scholarship mostly due to prejudices against Counter-Reformation Italian painting and the fact that it falls between the traditional (and problematic) periods of the so-called High Renaissance and the Baroque. In this talk he will explore two sixteenth-century altarpieces commissioned by a local confraternity for the important Carmelite basilica of Santa Maria del Carmine in Florence. The unorthodox iconographies of these images attest to the willingness of artists and patrons to deviate from Counter-Reformation codes of artistic decorum to meet the devotional needs of local constituencies.

This lecture is co-sponsored by the Department of Art & Music Histories, the Medieval-Renaissance Group, and the Syracuse University Humanities Center.

Sacred Landscape, Secular Law: Storying Spirituality on American Public Lands

Oct 12, 2018, 3:00 PM-4:30 PM

Bird 114 (Peter Graham Scholarly Commons)

Timur W Hammond, twhammon@maxwell.syr.edu

Free and Open to All

Nicolas Howe will discuss the idea of spirituality and how it has shaped public discourse about sacred space in modern America. Focusing on legal conflicts over sacred sites and iconic wilderness areas, he will show how dominant stories about the nature of ‘spiritual experience’ have enabled courts to routinely deny land claims that threaten secular assumptions about the material agency of place—assumptions paradoxically rooted in the country’s still-dominant Protestant religious imaginary.

Note: This talk is presented with the support of the Syracuse University Humanities Center as part of the 2018-19 Syracuse Symposium “Stories,” with additional support from the Department of Religion.

“Agents of Faith: Ex Votos, Votive Offerings and Beyond”

Oct 11, 2018, 5:00 PM-7:00 PM

Maxwell Auditorium

Prof Glenn Peers, gapeers@syr.edu

Free and Open to All

Professor Weinryb will be telling the story of the conception, planning and execution of his important exhibition on this fall at the Bard Graduate Center, “Agents of Faith: Votive Objects in Time and Place” (September 14-January 6). This exhibition is an important new argument for how objects tell stories and do things, and Professor Weinryb will address specific objects and their acts. The show deals with votive offerings pan-historically and -culturally, and it reveals in striking ways the needs all of us have and have always had to deploy things for thanks, desire and need. In short, things tell stories about human needs and desires, better than we can ourselves.

Presented by the Department of Art and Music Histories, and Co-sponsored by Hendricks Chapel, the Departments of History and Religion, the Medieval and Renaissance Studies Program, and the Co-Curricular Fund of the College of Arts and Sciences.

BABA BRINKMAN’S RAP GUIDE TO CONSCIOUSNESS: Exploring the material basis of brain science in hip-hop form.

Sep 28, 2018, 6:30 PM-8:00 PM

Hendricks Chapel

Free and Open to the Public.

HIP-HOP and NEUROSCIENCE.  Baba Brinkman is a Canadian rap artist and award-winning playwright. Brinkman has written seven hip-hop plays, garnering recognition and awards. When trying to achieve a greater understanding of who we are, most people turn to either science or art. In Rap Guide to Consciousness, Baba Brinkman turns to both. Inspired by the works of noted cognitive psychologists, this show finds Baba exploring the scientific study of consciousness and the inner-workings of his own psyche. As a scholar, he evokes contemporary theories about the brain’s role in forming our sense of self. As an artist, he deploys complex rhyme schemes, irreverent humor, boom-bap hip-hop music, and captivating visuals to come to terms with what this means for him and for all of us.

This exhibition features many of these visitor favorites, including work by Edward Hicks, Eastman Johnson, Frederick Remington, Adelaide Alsop Robineau, and Gilbert Stuart.

Space is limited; register by April 12 to Sascha Scott. Include any requests for accessibility accommodations..

What does it mean to make art for a magazine? As a medium designed to be touched and put into motion, the magazine is a multi-sensory proposition whose complexity few scholars have addressed. Jennifer Greenhill leads a seminar exploring this complexity by focusing on the late 19th and early 20th century, when magazines became densely illustrated entities, bursting with color features and advertising matter.

Participants will read Greenhill’s latest article about the illustrator Coles Phillips in advance, to be discussed during the seminar. Then, Greenhill will draw from the rich resources at the Special Collections Research Center to further consider commercial magazine illustration in this dynamic period.

Mike Bonanno (aka Igor Vamos) will speak about his work with the notorious Yes Men, which he describes as “infiltrating conferences, producing fake newspapers, and doing various other weirdness in order to expose the wrongdoings of miscellaneous, mostly corporate evildoers.” Bonanno’s work along with partner Andy Bichlbaum (aka Jacques Servin) spans the fields of art, activism and journalism. Bonanno has been the subject of two feature films and have been covered widely in the press, as well as exhibited in major art institutions. While he has been pulling off stunts for more than 20 years, his work has never been more relevant in this time of “fake news,” slippage between the boundaries of government and business and threats to suppress free speech.  Bonanno is a frequent and ridiculously engaging public speaker. Don’t miss it.

Public Lecture: Dr. Philip Carli, Musicologist & Pianist

Feb 7, 2018, 6:30 PM-8:00 PM

Peter Graham Scholarly Commons, 114 Bird Library

Sarah Fuchs Sampson: sefuchss@syr.edu

Free and Open to the Public.

In an upcoming talk, pianist and musicologist Philip Carli will share his research on musicians who accompanied so-called “silent” films—and who made sound recordings, both professionally and privately. These recordings offer a new window into performing styles, sensitivities, and thought processes that might (or might not) influence current approaches to film accompaniment. Carli’s work—and specifically his use of historical recordings—provides an important perspective on a period in film history that is typically re-imagined primarily through visual and textual sources. In so doing, Carli’s research connects to a broader turn in the humanities toward audible histories. Carli’s lecture, which is free and open to the public, will be held in Peter Graham Scholarly Commons in Bird Library on Wednesday, February 7, 2018, 6:30-7:45PM.

Lecture: “The Arts of Making Life Work among Korean Radiation Sufferers”

Nov 15, 2017, 3:45 PM-5:00 PM

Hall of Languages 207

Meera Lee, mlee46@syr.edu

During the Japanese colonial period in Korea (1910-45) hundreds of thousands of Koreans weresent to Japan and elsewhere as laborers. Tens of thousands of Koreans, mostly from theSoutheast, were sent to Hiroshima and to a lesser extent Nagasaki to work in munitions factories and elsewhere in the machinery of war. It is thought that 50,000 Koreans died in the two nuclear bombings. Most Korean residents of Hiroshima and Nagasaki relocated to South Korea after the war, and eked out a precarious living without social recognition, health or welfare support tailored to their special needs for the better part of half a century. How did they make due without such things? This essay discusses three Korean victims and the host ofexpressive resources they have brought to bear on the work of survival, identity, and political activism. One knits coherent identities through translingual practices of Korean and Japanese speech, and through practices of quietude. One seeks contentment in Christian prayer and faith in the face of traumatic experience and loss. And yet another woman folds Korean pop songs preoccupied with illness and suffering into her complex spoken-and-sung narratives of radiation-related disability and struggle.

Mini seminar: Wafaa Bilal: On Art and Resistance

Oct 13, 2017, 10:00 AM-11:30 AM

304 Tolley

Department of Art & Music Histories

Invitation and RSVP to follow closer to the date.

Our department is co-sponsoring a lecture and mini-seminar by acclaimed Iraqi artist Wafaa Bilal who is renowned for provoking dialogue about international politics and internal dynamics through high profile, technologically-driven art projects that employ the use of robotics, the internet, and photographic mobile mapping. For his 2007 installation, Domestic Tension, Bilal spent a month in a Chicago gallery with a paintball gun that people could shoot at him over the internet. Bilal’s work is constantly informed by the experience of fleeing his homeland and existing simultaneously in two worlds – his home in the “comfort zone” of the U.S. and his consciousness of the “conflict zone” in Iraq. Using his own body as a medium, Bilal continues to challenge our comfort zone with projects like 3rdi and and Counting.... He is the author of Shoot an Iraqi: Art, Life and Resistance Under the Gun (2008). His work can be found in the permanent collections of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Los Angeles, CA; Museum of Contemporary Photography, Chicago, IL; MATHAF: Arab Museum of Modern Art, Doha, Qatar; amongst others. He holds a BFA from the University of New Mexico and an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He is currently an Associate Arts Professor at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts. http://wafaabilal.com
