Lecture: "Policy vs. Science: The Politics of Climate Change"

-

Location: 140 DeBartolo Hall

Patrick Regan Energy Week

Climate science can tell us how and why the earth is changing but not why we allow it to do so. While global warming is a function of chemical processes by which atoms combine to form an imbalance of molecules, policy and markets directly affect how many of those molecules are in our atmosphere. In the perfect world, science would inform policy and policymakers would act in ways to forestall or prevent the future doom. In many political environments today, that is simply not happening. The reasons humans ignore the science points toward a potentially catastrophic outcome.…

Exhibition: "Solidary & Solitary: The Joyner/Giuffrida Collection"

(part of a series)

Location: Snite Museum of Art

Drawing on the Joyner/Giuffrida Collection, this exhibition celebrates modern and contemporary artists of African descent, many of whom were historically overlooked by collectors, critics, scholars, galleries, and museums. A central theme is the power of abstract art as a profound political choice and as a declaration of freedom. These artists resisted not only racist imagery, but also pressure to create positive representations of black Americans.

Presented by The Helis Foundation and organized by the Ogden Museum of Southern Art and the Baltimore Museum of Art.

August 18 through December 15, 2018 / O’Shaughnessy Galleries / Snite Museum of Art

A Retrospective of Video Artist Alana Olsen / A Multimodal Installation by Andi & Lance Olsen

September 1 through December 1, 2018 / Scholz Family Works on Paper Gallery / Snite Museum of Art

There’s No Place Like Time is a novel you can walk through. It takes the form of a real retrospective of videos dedicated to the career of Alana Olsen, one of America’s most overlooked experimental video artists who never existed. An interplay of videos, texts, books, and interventions, There’s No Place Like Time forms a multimodal installation that translates Alana’s life (which began as a fictional character in Lance Olsen’s novel, Theories of Forgetting, 2014) into a three-dimensional reality.

Lecture: "Political Theology of International Order"

-

Location: Hesburgh Center C103

A Kellogg-sponsored lecture by William Bain, who holds a joint appointment at the National University of Singapore (NUS) Department of Political Science and as Head of Studies for Global Affairs at Yale-NUS College. International order is normally seen as a secular arrangement, established by independent states to satisfy wants and desires including peace, security, wealth, and power. This project challenges the view that this framework is distinctively modern and secular. Bain argues that this conventional understanding is, in fact, a worldly application of a Christian theological pattern with medieval roots. Uncovering these theological and medieval foundations of international order invites revision of much of what is taken for granted in international theory, such as the historical narratives used by international theorists. It also provides a timely reminder that the quest for a truly global international theory must begin with better self-understanding.…

Flash Panel Discussion: "Lessons from Chemnitz: Right-Wing Radicalism in Europe Today"

-

Location: 1050 Nanovic Hall, Elizabeth E. Nanovic Seminar Room

Protestors in Chemnitz

Europe is going through some deeply troubling times. After the murder of a 35-year old German in Chemnitz, for which a 22-year-old Iraqi citizen and a Syrian refugee are wanted, right-wing extremists have responded with violent rallies and calls for harming foreigners. These stories of the Chemnitz riots are barely two weeks old, and this past weekend new protest marches occurred in the small town of Köthen after the death of a 22-year old German. With their calls for violence against foreigners, right-wing populists and nativists are threatening the fabric of European unity and integration that many of us had taken for granted as the status quo--and politicians like Angela Merkel are under scrutiny for their open-door politics.…
