Lecture: "Fragments and traces — destroying, restoring, and interpreting the Buddhist Caves of Longmen"

-

Location: 1030 Jenkins Nanovic Halls

 

Coleman Fragments And Traces

The Department of Art, Art History & Design and the Liu Institute for Asia and Asian Studies presents a lecture by Fletcher Coleman, joint-fellow for the study of Asian art at Notre Dame.

This talk explores the removal, restoration, and subsequent interpretation of Chinese Buddhist sculpture from the Longmen Grottoes at the turn of the 20th century. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Longmen Grottoes were “rediscovered” for the West in the 1890s. Uniquely positioned as a site of study, collecting, and teaching in Asia and the West, the Longmen Grottoes offer a distinctive lens on the birth of the discipline of East Asian art history.

Film: "A Ciambra"

-

Location: Browning Cinema

Directed by Jonas Carpignano (Italy), 2017
Screened in the Directors’ Fortnight, Cannes Film Festival 2017
Thursday, November 15, 7:00 pm

Introduced by Anthony Monta, Associate Director, Nanovic Institute for European Studies

From the director of MEDITERRANEA (2015) comes a new film about a boy coming of age in Reggio Calabria. In a tough neighborhood that mixes Italians, Africans, and Roma, growing up is chaotic business where success is less about money, which is elusive, than about obtaining some degree, or any degree, of empathy. A brilliant character study of friendship, Carpignano’s neorealism impressed Martin Scorsese, who agreed to serve as executive producer.

Lecture: "Does Trump's Populism Threaten U.S. Democracy? Lessons from Latin America and Europe"

-

Location: Hesburgh Center C103

Sponsored by the Kellogg Institute for International Studies. A lecture by Kenneth Roberts, the Richard J. Schwartz Professor of Government at Cornell University, and Kurt Weyland, the Mike Hogg Professor in Liberal Arts in government at the University of Texas at Austin. Donald Trump is perhaps the first populist president of the United States since Andrew Jackson‚ but many Latin American and European countries have had lengthy experiences with populism. In this dialogue, two scholars of comparative politics with differing perspectives will examine what lessons these international experiences can offer us for understanding the Trump presidency. Under what conditions do populist leaders maintain or even increase their political support? What policies have typically been successful in generating mass support‚ and which strategies have backfired? What can the opposition do to counter populist leaders? Most importantly, what can Latin American and European experiences with populism teach us about the impact that the Trump presidency is likely to have on democracy in the United States? Is Trump likely to weaken horizontal accountability‚ restrict civil liberties‚ and undermine the rule of law as some populists have done in other countries or are U.S. institutions‚ traditions‚ and opposition forces sufficiently strong to resist a populist assault?…
