Kamikiri: Papercutting Performance

-

Location: Hesburgh Center for International Studies, Auditorium

Niraku2 Chinese Papercutting

A famous Japanese kamikiri performance artist, Hayashiya Niraku, will visit Notre Dame on Wednesday, February 21. This event is free and open to the public, and will be followed by a reception.

Kamikiri, which literally means “paper cutting,” is a traditional Japanese art that involves making delicate cut-out on a single sheet of paper. Niraku combines this art form with his performance skills to tell stories with the images he creates. He also takes requests from the audience, transforming their ideas into paper cut-outs right before their eyes, and giving them unique souvenirs of the experience. As an artist, he must maintain a breadth of knowledge about current topics, and use his imagination and paper-cutting skills to transform the paper into anything the audience desires. …

Work in Progress: "Eroding Regimes: What, Where, and When?"

-

Michael Coppedge

Michael Coppedge 
Professor of Political Science at Notre Dame
Faculty Fellow of the Kellogg Institute for International Studies

The political world lately seems to be filled with unexpected erosions of democracy. What is the most useful way to describe these phenomena? Do they all belong to a common syndrome? Certainly there are different degrees of erosion, but are there also different types? How common are such erosions in the world today? Is this a new phenomenon, or are there close parallels with events in the past? If we detect early warning signs of erosion, how concerned should we be that it will continue and culminate in the breakdown of democracy? This paper argues that there are two distinct erosion paths. First, there is a classic path of growing repression of speech, media, assembly, and civil liberties, combined with deteriorating political discourse. The second path involves the concentration of power in the executive at the expense of the courts and the legislature, similar to what Guillermo O’Donnell called “delegative democracy,” which entails the erosion of horizontal accountability. Venezuela emerges as the most extreme and most fully articulated instance of erosion along this second path.…
