“Women Writers and the Canon:Valeria Miani and Isabetta Coreglia”
12:30 PM - 2:30 PM

Alexandra Coller (Assistant Professor, Department of  Languages and Literatures) investigates two newly rediscovered female-authored pastoral dramas, forthcoming in The Other Voice in Early Modern Europe Series (Toronto), edited and translated by Alexandra Coller: Valeria Miani’s Amorosa speranza (Venice: Francesco Bolzetta, 1604), and Isabetta Coreglia, La Dori (Naples: Gio. Domenico Montanaro, 1634). The plays will be analyzed within the context of pastoral drama, that is, the canonical production of Torquato Tasso’s Aminta (1581) and Giovanni Battista Guarini’s Pastor fido (1589), the less well-known examples of Francesco Bracciolini, Francesco Contarini, and Muzio Manfredi, as well as against the backdrop of the more widely acclaimed pastorals of Isabella Andreini [Mirtilla, 1588], Maddalena Campiglia [Flori, 1588], and Barbara Torelli [Partenia, ms., comp. c. 1587].

As such, Miani’s and Coreglia’s early seventeenth-century plays attest to what Coller describes as the “fourth” generation of pastoral dramatic writing in Italy and the “second” generation of female-authored pastoral drama on the continent.

What can these female-authored dramatic works teach us about imitative and revisionist practices, the “negotiation” between canonical and non-canonical texts, as well as their own claims to originality?

Lecture: “Lyric Dwelling: The Art and Ethics of Invitation and Occupation”
12:30 PM - 2:00 PM

Poet, vocalist, and theorist Gina Rae Foster (director, Lehman Teaching & Learning Commons) considers the interplay between home and lyric as hospitable processes of human becoming. “Lyric,’ Foster claims, “in its relationality and self-reflection, in its contextualization and capacity to decontextualize its presence, activates capacities of identity, responsibility, and territory in the poet/composer and performer/audience as well as in the temporo-spatiality it soothes and disrupts.” In this lecture, the lyric web in music, poetry, experimental cinema, and theater will be explored through phenomenological and neo-materialist approaches to aesthetics as well as recent contributions to the studies of co-performance and polyrhythm.

All lectures will take place in the Women Studies conference room in Carman Hall, Room 221 from 12:30-2:00

“Imagine that I am a Teacher”: Pedagogy as Possibility in Roland Barthes
12:30 PM - 2:30 PM

Tyler T. Schmidt (Assistant Professor, Department of English) will discuss...

What useable models of teaching does Roland Barthes offer today’s professor? Drawing on Barthes’ most recent posthumous publications, How to Live Together and The Preparation of the Novel, which offer illuminating, detailed documentation of Barthes’ teaching practices, this talk examines these texts as both curriculum maps and pedagogical statements, exploring not only how knowledge is organized in these lectures and seminars, but how the performance of “teacher” is structured in these texts.  This presentation will venture possible answers to the following queries about pedagogy: As critical educators, what can we learn from Barthes’ academic practice of notation (of life, of texts)?  How does he reconceive the format of the lecture in ways we might emulate? Which of his teaching protocols are most adaptable and attractive to our own seminars that are constituted in very different institutions with very different students?

This talk is part of the Arts & Humanities Works in Progress Series for Spring 2014, and will
 take place on Wednesday, February 26, in Shuster Hall-room 336 from 12:30-2 PM.

In this groundbreaking exhibition, a myriad of themes are inspired by America: as the familiar homeland for second and third generation children of Cuban parents, or as the distant, imagined place that has historically empowered diverse ideologies on the Island.

Las Rutas de Julia de Burgos
8:00 PM - 9:30 PM

Written by Oscar Montero and directed by Marco Antonio Rodriguez, Las Rutas de Julia de Burgos is a one-act play that presents the genius, the personal struggle and the humanity of the acclaimed Puerto Rican writer Julia de Burgos, focusing on powerful emotions—her passion for words, her love for Dominican leader Juan Isidro Jimenez Grullón and her faith in human solidarity and justice.

Julia de Burgos (1914-1953) has become an iconic presence in Latino cultures in New York and throughout the country. When Burgos was honored with a U.S. postage stamp bearing her image, she was called a revolutionary writer, poet and activist. Yet her work as a poet and the power of her personal story are not so well known. 
Las rutas de Julia de Burgos celebrates Julia’s 100th birthday by presenting key moments in that story. The play brings to the stage the tensions between Burgos’s powerful use of words and her personal struggles: to see her country free of oppression, to find fulfillment in love, to help her family, to find a place as an exile in New York.Julia de Burgos died on a New York street at the age of 39. Yet the power of her voice increases with every year that passes. Like no other writer of her generation, she speaks powerfully to women but also to anyone willing to defy social conventions to find an inner freedom that is both personal and universal, that connects the intimate self with others and with the world around us. Las rutas de Julia de Burgos presents the power of that freedom and that connection.

Cast members include Sol Marina Crespo, Carlos A. Valencia, Dalia Davi, Sandie Luna, Juan Carlos Diaz, and Yarani Del Valle Pinero.

Las Rutas de Julia de Burgos
8:00 PM - 9:30 PM

Written by Oscar Montero and directed by Marco Antonio Rodriguez, Las Rutas de Julia de Burgos is a one-act play that presents the genius, the personal struggle and the humanity of the acclaimed Puerto Rican writer Julia de Burgos, focusing on powerful emotions—her passion for words, her love for Dominican leader Juan Isidro Jimenez Grullón and her faith in human solidarity and justice.

Julia de Burgos (1914-1953) has become an iconic presence in Latino cultures in New York and throughout the country. When Burgos was honored with a U.S. postage stamp bearing her image, she was called a revolutionary writer, poet and activist. Yet her work as a poet and the power of her personal story are not so well known. 
Las rutas de Julia de Burgos celebrates Julia’s 100th birthday by presenting key moments in that story. The play brings to the stage the tensions between Burgos’s powerful use of words and her personal struggles: to see her country free of oppression, to find fulfillment in love, to help her family, to find a place as an exile in New York.Julia de Burgos died on a New York street at the age of 39. Yet the power of her voice increases with every year that passes. Like no other writer of her generation, she speaks powerfully to women but also to anyone willing to defy social conventions to find an inner freedom that is both personal and universal, that connects the intimate self with others and with the world around us. Las rutas de Julia de Burgos presents the power of that freedom and that connection.

Cast members include Sol Marina Crespo, Carlos A. Valencia, Dalia Davi, Sandie Luna, Juan Carlos Diaz, and Yarani Del Valle Pinero.

Burkina Faso Portraits (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Spanning more than three decades, Beryl Goldberg’s photographs depict multi-generational portraits of three families in Burkina Faso, West Africa. They are a personal exploration of regular people in a part of the world most often depicted in crisis. We see how the country has evolved. Parents in their 70s were market people from rural villages, while many of the younger generation are now sophisticated dwellers in the wired urban environment. The photos portray a positive and vibrant Africa not usually seen in our media. Based in New York, Beryl Goldberg has traveled around the world on assignment for various international organizations and publishers. Her photographs have been exhibited in the United States and abroad, and is also in private collections and museums.

It’s a community on the brink of change, full of hopes, dreams and pressures, where the biggest struggles can be deciding which traditions you take with you, and which ones you leave behind. In the Heights is the winner of the 2008 Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Score, Best Choreography and Best Orchestrations.

Tao is Japanese Taiko drumming that has to be experienced live. In this new production for North American audiences, athletic bodies and contemporary costumes meet explosive drumming and innovative choreography in a show that has critics raving about TAO’s precision, energy, and stamina.

The stars of TAO live and train at a compound in the mountains of Japan, reaching the highest level of virtuosity only after years of intensive study. The performers each bring nontraditional flair to the group by drawing on their diverse backgrounds: one as a hard rock musician, another gymnast, and yet another as a composer. They offer a young and vibrantly modern take on a compelling traditional art form.

B.B. KING
8:00 PM

B.B. King is an icon of his art form and an American cultural ambassador in the truest sense. Drawing on his rural Mississippi roots and the work of Delta blues legends Charley Patton and Robert Johnson, he helped propel the blues into the electric era. In the process, he pushed a wave ridden by Jimi Hendrix, Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, Keith Richards, Jimmy Page, and countless other guitarists worldwide over the last half century. Far from being an unsung hero of his craft, he has been honored with a National Medal of Arts, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the Kennedy Center Honor, the NEA’s National Heritage Fellowship, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, 15 Grammy Awards, and a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. He was rated among the Top 10 guitarists of all time by both TIME and Rolling Stone magazines. Nearing age 90, he states simply, “I never use that word, ‘retire.’”

For more information please visit: http://denimdayusa.org/about/ Denim Day especially focuses on raising awareness about abuse and violence against women and children.

In this groundbreaking exhibition, a myriad of themes are inspired by America: as the familiar homeland for second and third generation children of Cuban parents, or as the distant, imagined place that has historically empowered diverse ideologies on the Island.

This installation is co-curated by Yuneikys Villalonga and Susan Hoeltzel and includes a related Cuban video art program organized by guest curator Meykén Barreto. A series of special programs is conducted by guest curator  Elvis Fuentes.
