    Series

    Theory/Praxis/Politics

    Description

    Inter-Asian Forum on Film Censorship is the first webinar roundtable discussion for the series, Theory/Praxis/Politics. This forum highlights film practitioners and programmers’ thoughts and reflections on the practices of censorship across Asia. Join our panelists, Zhu Rikun, Kek Huat Lau, and Park Sungho, as they articulate their first-hand experiences in the field and unfurl the complexities of censorship both in the production and circulation of cinema.

    Theory/Praxis/Politics is a webinar series working to advocate for and bring together perspectives of academics, filmmakers, programmers, civil servants, and other stakeholders with an interest in the question of censorship across Asia and its diasporas. We consider Asia as a productive site in which theory, practice, and politics overlap. The intersection allows us to question not only our understanding of censorship and the ways in which we engage with cinema in the region but also to reconsider the relationship between theory, aesthetics, and politics.

    Series

    Russian History Speakers Series

    Description

    Organized in the wake of World War Two by the victorious Allies, the Nuremberg Trials were intended to hold the Nazis to account for their crimes and to restore a sense of justice to a world devastated by violence. As Francine Hirsch reveals in her groundbreaking new book, a major piece of the Nuremberg story has routinely been left out: the critical role of the Soviet Union. Soviet Judgment at Nuremberg offers a startlingly new view of the International Military Tribunal and a fresh perspective on the movement for international human rights that it helped launch.

    Francine Hirsch is Vilas Distinguished Achievement Professor of History at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where she teaches courses on Soviet history, Modern European history, and the history of human rights. Her first book, Empire of Nations: Ethnographic Knowledge and the Making of the Soviet Union (2005), received several awards, including the Herbert Baxter Adams Prize of the American Historical Association and the Wayne S. Vucinich Prize of the Association for Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies. Her second book, Soviet Judgment at Nuremberg: A New History of the International Military Tribunal after World War II (2020), was awarded four book prizes: the 2021 Certificate of Merit for a Preeminent Contribution to Creative Scholarship from the American Society for International Law, the Heldt Prize of the Association for Women in Slavic Studies, the Barbara Jelavich prize of the Association for Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies, and the Beer Prize of the American Historical Association. Hirsch has started work on a new book project on the history of Russian-American entanglement, with a focus on economics, science, culture, and international law.

  • Thursday, December 9th Celebrating Ravindra Jain: A conversation in conjunction with the publication of Michael Herzfeld's 'Subversive Archaism'

    Description

    The UTSC Centre for Ethnography is pleased to invite you to our upcoming event, which is generously co-sponsored by the Centre for Southeast Asian Studies and the Centre for South Asian Studies at the Asian Institute, and the Department of Anthropology Colloquium Series and Graduate Program, University of Toronto:

    This roundtable in honour of Ravindra Jain presents a chance to engage with an eminent and path-breaking anthropologist of global reach who pioneered work on diaspora and migration long before these became common topics. He has always delighted in encouraging his students to explore contradictions and complexities that theorists of caste, kinship, and other familiar anthropological topics had not anticipated. For the students he has taught around the world, many of them now successful academics in their own right, he thus represents precisely what a university teacher should be.

    Ravindra Jain is perhaps best known for his work on the Indian diaspora, starting with the pioneering South Indians on the Plantation Frontier in Malaya (1970), and on the central Indian region of Bundelkhand, published in Between History and Legend: Status and Power in Bundelkhand (2002). His other books include Indian Communities Abroad (1993); The Universe as Audience: Metaphor and Community among the Jains of North India (1999); Indian Transmigrants: Malaysian and Comparative Essays (2009/2011); Nation, Diaspora, Trans-Nation: Reflections from India (2010); Innovative Departures: Anthropology and the Indian Diaspora (2017); and the edited volume Text and Context: The Social Anthropology of Tradition (1977). He taught at Lucknow University before obtaining his PhD at the Australian National University, Canberra, in 1966. He then went on to teach at Oxford University (1966-1974) and Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi (1975-2002). He has also held visiting positions at the University of the West Indies (Trinidad), Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, and the University of KwaZulu Natal. In 2013 he received the Lifetime Achievement Award of the Indian Sociological Society. He is widely known as an extraordinary teacher, and this event is intended to celebrate the confluence of his intellectual and his pedagogical influence.

    The event will be a conversation between Ravindra Jain and anthropologist Michael Herzfeld (among others). Michael Herzfeld is Ernest E. Monrad Research Professor of the Social Sciences, Department of Anthropology, Harvard University.
    His forthcoming (December 2021) book Subversive Archaisms Troubling Traditionalists and the Politics of National Heritage (Duke University Press) is dedicated to Ravindra Jain. Introduction available at: https://www.dukeupress.edu/Assets/PubMaterials/978-1-4780-1762-2_601.pdf

    Description

    Join us for the book launch and discussion of Voices from the Periphery, a new collection of thought-provoking essays written by young people whose families have lived as minorities in various countries in east-central Europe for four generations. They became minorities not because their families migrated to different parts of Europe, but because the borders were changed overnight by the Treaty of Trianon after the end of the First World War.

    Much has been written about the outcomes of Trianon, but this book is very different. These essays are the result of a competition for students and young professionals who live in minority status in four different countries surrounding Hungary: Romania, Slovakia, Ukraine, and Serbia. The writings of several Canadian students on this topic are included as well.

    Voices from the Periphery examines how the current generation of young people perceive the impact of the treaty that has had such a long-term effect on their lives. During this book launch, we will hear from the contributors. Their essays not only examine the legacy of the past but also recommend pathways to a more positive future.

    Dr. Emőke J.E. Szathmáry is a biological anthropologist whose career combined research, teaching, administration, and community service. She served 12 years as President and Vice-Chancellor of The University of Manitoba. Earlier she was Provost and Vice-President (Academic) at McMaster University, and before that, Dean of Social Science at Western University. She is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada, a Member of the Order of Canada, and the Order of Manitoba. Dr. Szathmáry’s focus on the genetics of the indigenous peoples of North America included research on the causes of type-2 diabetes, the genetic relationships within and between North American and Siberian peoples, and the microevolution of subarctic populations. Her field research involved Ottawa, Ojibwa and Tlicho peoples in Ontario and the Northwest Territories. She has published over 90 scientific articles and reviews, and co-edited four books. As well, she served terms as Editor-in-Chief of the Yearbook of Physical Anthropology (1987-91), and the American Journal of Physical Anthropology (1995-2001).

    Susan M. Papp has had a distinguished career as an award-winning broadcaster and filmmaker. One of her documentaries received the prestigious Michener Award for Public Service. Dr. Papp is the author of several books and many scholarly articles, including a history of the Munk-Munkácsi family in the volume How it Happened: Documenting the Tragedy of Hungarian Jewry. One of her books, Outcasts: A Love Story, is based on a true story that took place during the Holocaust. Originally written in English, Outcasts has been translated into three languages and made into a documentary film. Susan Papp earned her Ph.D. in Modern European History from the University of Toronto. Her dissertation, The Politics of Exclusion and Retribution in the Hungarian Film Industry, 1929–1947, is presently being prepared for publication.

    Description

    Tamas Dobozy’s latest collection of fictions—novellas and short stories—explores the ruins of failed utopias in the twentieth century and beyond. Whether it’s an olympic wrestler traveling by air balloon, an orphaned cartographer mapping derelict properties, or an enfant terrible philosopher fracturing into infinite selves, each of these stories invokes and witnesses the specters and ghosts lost to the historical record. Tamas Dobozy welcomes everyone to the seance.

    Tamas Dobozy is a professor in the Department of English and Film Studies at Wilfrid Laurier University. He lives in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada. He has published four books of short fiction, When X Equals Marylou, Last Notes and Other Stories, Siege 13: Stories, and Ghost Geographies: Fictions, along with a limited-run collaborative work with artist Allan Kausch, 5 Mishaps. Siege 13 won the 2012 Rogers Writers Trust of Canada Fiction Prize, and was shortlisted for both the Governor General’s Award: Fiction, and the 2013 Frank O’Connor International Short Story Award. Dobozy has published over seventy short stories in journals such as One Story, Fiction, Agni, and Granta, and won an O Henry Prize in 2011, and the Gold Medal for Fiction at the National Magazine Awards in 2014. His scholarly work—on music, utopianism, American literature, the short story, and post-structuralism—have appeared in journals such as Canadian Literature, Genre, The Canadian Review of American Studies, Mosaic, and Modern Fiction Studies, among others. He has also published numerous chapters in peer-reviewed anthologies published by Routledge, University of Nebraska Press, University of South Carolina Press, and Wilfrid Laurier University Press.

    Harney Lecture Series

    Description

    Most theorizing about reparations treats it as a social justice project – either rooted in reconciliatory justice focused on making amends in the present; or, they focus on the past, emphasizing restitution for historical wrongs. I will argue that neither approach is optimal, and advance a different case for reparations rooted in distributive justice, which I refer to as the “constructive” view of reparations. I’ll also present some of what I take to be the political and policy implications of this view.
