Of Bridges: a Poetic and Philosophical Account by Thomas Harrison | Book Launch

May 28 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Zoom,

In conversation with Professors Marjorie Perloff of Standford and Christy Wampole of Princeton. A rich compendium of literary, architectural, and musical figurations, Harrison’s Of Bridges gives a panoramic account of diverse meanings of bridges in seemingly unrelated times and places, questioning why they are built and where they lead. It examines bridges of thought and art, bridges as flash points in war, the links forged by religion between transience and eternity, the mega-bridges of our globalized world, the real and symbolic crossings facing migrants…

Resilience, Resistance, and Renewal in the Medieval and Early Modern World

May 27 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Zoom Meeting,

Graduate Student conference organized by the UCLA Medieval and Early Modern Student Association (MEMSA). The global medieval and early modern world (broadly considered, c. 900-1750) underwent myriad profound changes, from devastating famines, plagues, and wars to an increased entanglement of the continents, economic transformations, and technological and scientific developments. These changes were often accompanied by calls for the reshaping of the institutions and structures – political, religious, intellectual, etc. – which undergirded societies’ approach to these challenges, encompassing such responses…

May 26 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

  lecture by Zoltán Biedermann (University College London) Online event via Zoom Webinar This paper proposes a conceptual intervention for the history of Spanish and Portuguese expansion inspired by scholarship on cosmopolitan practices in Asia, including Sheldon Pollock’s The Language of Gods in the World of Men and recent work by Richard Eaton on the Persianate cosmopolis.

Alienated Awareness: Mindfulness Paradigms of Modernist Aesthetics | a virtual lecture by Professor Michael Subialka

May 21 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Zoom,

Is modern alienation necessarily a source of dehumanized angst? In this presentation I examine a perhaps unexpected way in which mindfulness practices and theory can serve as a paradigm of modernist aesthetics. This different paradigm helps us reconceive the nature and function of alienation (and it cognate forms – estrangement, distance, etc.) in modernist literature and art. Forms of alienation, from dehumanization and distance to grotesque distortion or critical estrangement, have long been viewed as a hallmark of modernist production.…
