    Description

    In this talk, Professor Vavreck will shed light on the dynamics of the 2020 US presidential election, with a particular focus on the role of COVID-19, how it affected most Americans’ lives, how attitudes about mitigation strategies were politicized by elites, and how it might have affected the outcome of the election.

    Lynn Vavreck is the Marvin Hoffenberg Professor of American Politics and Public Policy at UCLA, a contributing columnist to The Upshot at The New York Times, and a recipient of the Andrew F. Carnegie Prize in the Humanities and Social Sciences. She is the author of five books, including the “most ominous” book on the 2016 election: Identity Crisis: The 2016 Presidential Campaign and the Battle for the Meaning of America, and The Gamble: Choice and Chance in the 2012 Presidential Election, described as the “definitive account” of the 2012 election. Political consultants on both sides of the aisle refer to her work on political messaging in The Message Matters as “required reading” for presidential candidates. Her 2020 election project, NATIONSCAPE, is the largest study of presidential elections ever fielded in the United States. Interviewing more than 6,000 people a week, NATIONSCAPE will complete 500,000 interviews before the inauguration in 2021. At UCLA she teaches courses on campaigns, elections, public opinion, and the 1960s. Professor Vavreck holds a Ph.D. in political science from the University of Rochester and held previous appointments at Princeton University, Dartmouth College, and The White House. A native of Cleveland, Ohio, she remains a loyal Browns fan and is a “known equestrian” – to draw on a phrase from the 2012 presidential campaign.

  • Thursday, January 28th THE POLITICAL LIFE OF ARCHITECTURE: Soft Power and Politics in the Adaptive Reuse of Tbilisi’s Institute of Marx, Engels, and Lenin Building

    Series

    Eurasia Initiative

    Description

    In 1938, the Soviet Georgian administration inaugurated the iconic Institute of Marx, Engels, and Lenin (IMEL) in Tbilisi, Georgia under pretenses of socialist unity and friendship among Soviet nations. Three quarters of a century later, the same building—now privatized, heavily renovated, and re-branded—was re-inaugurated as the seven-star Biltmore Hotel. The hotel’s inauguration included a video projected at enormous scale onto the western façade of the building, telling the story of a new friendship among nations—now between the Republic of Georgia and the United Arab Emirates as the hotel’s financiers.

    In this first talk on the political life of architecture, Suzanne Harris-Brandts tracks the shifting symbolism associated with the building’s adaptive reuse. She discusses the social, political, and economic implications that surround the continued use of friendship rhetoric in politics and architecture in Tbilisi, done to normalize foreign initiatives, and discusses the larger implications for urban development. In doing so, she charts the manipulation of architecture to communicate the power of its patrons.

    The work draws from fieldwork conducted alongside colleague Dr. David Sichinava of Tbilisi State University, including site observations, media analysis, personal interviews, and focus groups. It break down how the IMEL building/Biltmore Hotel served as a medium for soft power and politics and shows how, rather than an outmoded means of public service announcement, symbolic architecture continues to be a crucial arena for political legitimacy in the city.

    Dr. Suzanne Harris-Brandts is an Assistant Professor in the Azrieli School of Architecture and Urbanism, and a faculty associate with the Institute of European, Russian and Eurasian Studies at Carleton University. Her research brings together design and the social sciences to explore issues of power, equity, and collective identity in the built environment. Suzanne’s current book project, entitled Constructing the Capital, draws from her dissertation uncovering the politics of urban development and image making in Eurasian capital cities. It examines city building campaigns in part-democratic/ part-authoritarian hybrid regimes, foregrounding the cases of Tbilisi, Georgia and Skopje, North Macedonia. The work demonstrates how architecture and urban design are manipulated for power retention in such regimes, while also highlighting bottom-up, community-based strategies to resist these actions. Suzanne received her PhD in Urban Studies from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. She is a licenced architect in Ontario and co-founder of Collective Domain, a design-research practice for spatial analysis, urban activism, architecture, and media in the public interest.

    CERES "Making and Remaking Central Europe" Series

    Description

    In my presentation I will deal with the Czech art scene, in particular that of Prague. I will try to capture the artistic operations in full, from established institutions with a long history, to places that are still looking for their place, to those that are no longer on the art map today. Some people miss this last group whereas others do not care.

    By “art,” I refer to that which is not intended to be useful in the form of decoration and is not just a filling of the free time of its potential recipients. For me, art is not a leisure activity used to entertain its creators and spectators. At the same time, though, it is not an illustration of a political or social situation.

    Prague is not Berlin and will never be. However, it has its specific features, local heroes, and big dreams. Let me tell you how some of them become reality.

    David Kořínek (*1970) is an artist and theorist of visual culture.

    David received his master’s degree in film science and aesthetics at Masaryk University in Brno (MUNI), Czech Republic. He worked as a producer for the public service broadcaster, Czech Television.

    He is the founder of the Digital Media Department of Media Studies at MUNI and has led the Media Lab there. With Federico Díaz, he co-founded the Supermedia Studio at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague in 2008.

    Since 2019 he has been the head of the Center for Audiovisual Studies at the Film and Television Faculty of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague. He is also an associate professor there.

    He has been a member of artistic group Rafani since 2007 and has had exhibitions in many European galleries and institutions. For their feature-length documentary debut, “31 Endings / 31 Beginnings,” Rafani received a Special Award at the Jihlava International Documentary Film Festival in 2011.

    Rafani has been nominated for Person of the Year in the field of Czech art several times. They have received this award twice.

    David Kořínek deals with the theory of the moving image in the context of visual arts and has written about this topic for several international anthologies.

    Description

    The COVID-19 pandemic has revealed the importance of cities as partners in implementing and enforcing national and provincial policies, programs, and services. How can federal-provincial-municipal collaboration be improved? What models exist for all three orders government to come together and address shared policy challenges?

    On February 2, Dr. Neil Bradford will address these questions by revisiting Canada’s history of successful tri-level agreements between federal, provincial, and municipal governments on issues from homelessness to economic development and infrastructure. Working from his recent IMFG paper, Dr. Bradford will show how these agreements offer a model for a more collaborative form of policymaking that includes all orders of government, including municipalities, and communities.

    Neil Bradford is Professor of Political Science and Director of the Governance, Leadership, and Ethics program at Huron University College at Western. His research focuses on place-based public policy and multi-level governance, and has been published in journals such as Urban Affairs Review, the Canadian Journal of Political Science, and the Cambridge Journal of Regions, Economy and Society. He is also the author of multiple reports on urban and regional development and intergovernmental relations for Canadian and international research institutes, including the Institute for Research on Public Policy, the Canadian Urban Institute, and the OECD.

    Kofi Hope is a Rhodes Scholar and has a Doctorate in Politics from Oxford University. He is the Senior Policy Advisor at the Wellesley Institute and the co-founder of Monumental, a new start-up focused on supporting organizations work towards an equitable recovery from COVID-19. He is an emeritus Bousfield Scholar and current adjunct professor at UofT’s School of Urban Planning. He was founder and former Executive Director of the CEE Centre for Young Black Professionals.

    Meeting ID: 869 1438 0300
    Passcode: 464253

    With the launch of the Second Sino-Japanese War in 1937, Japan’s colonies saw the full-scale launch of kōminka (imperialization) policies designed to turn the colonized into loyal subjects of the emperor. In this book talk, Christina Yi will explore the central role kokugo (national language) ideology played in the articulation and promotion of imperial identity during the latter years of Japan’s colonial rule, exploring how and why “Korean” literature was repositioned within a larger Japanese language canon. Although it is often understood that the kōminka movement introduced a new paradigm of the “imperial subject,” who might be included in this category varied according to class, gender, ethnicity, and place.

    This presentation will elaborate on this point through a close comparative analysis of Kim Sŏngmin’s 1936 novella Hantō no geijutsukatachi (Artists of the Peninsula) and its 1941 film adaptation Hantō no haru (Spring on the Peninsula; dir. Yi Pyŏng-il).

    CHRISTINA YI is Associate Professor of Modern Japanese Literature at the University of British Columbia. She is a specialist of modern Japanese-language literature and culture, with a particular focus on issues of postcoloniality, language ideology, genre, and cultural studies. Her first monograph, Colonizing Language: Cultural Production and Language Politics in Modern Japan and Korea, was published by Columbia University Press in 2018. She was also the co-editor for a special feature on zainichi (resident) Korean literature and film for Azalea: Journal of Korean Literature and Culture 12 (2019).

    Description

    How do governments cultivate loyal citizens? Leading China experts present their latest research on patriotic education in China and ideology.

    KARRIE J. KOESEL is Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Notre Dame where she specializes in the study of contemporary Chinese and Russian politics, authoritarianism, and religion and politics. She is the author of Religion and Authoritarianism: Cooperation, Conflict and the Consequences (Cambridge University Press, 2014) and co-editor of Citizens & the State in Authoritarian Regimes: Comparing China and Russia (Oxford University Press, 2020). She is currently working on a book manuscript, Learning to Be Loyal: Patriotic Education in Authoritarian Regimes that explores how authoritarian leaders cultivate popular legitimacy and loyalty among young people; how they socialize citizens and the future elite to be patriotic and supportive; and whether these strategies free autocrats from the need to rely so heavily on coercion to stay in power.

    RORY TRUEX is an Assistant Professor in Princeton’s Department of Politics and Princeton’s School of Public and International Affairs. His research focuses on Chinese politics and theories of authoritarian rule. His book Making Autocracy Work: Representation and Responsiveness in Modern China investigates the nature of representation in authoritarian systems, specifically the politics surrounding China’s National People’s Congress (NPC). He argues that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is engineering a system of “representation within bounds” in the NPC, fostering information revelation but silencing political activism. Original data on deputy backgrounds and behaviors is used to explore the nature of representation, policymaking, and incentives in this constrained system. He is currently working on a new set of projects on repression, human rights, and dissent in contemporary China. His research has been published in the American Political Science Review, Journal of Politics, Journal of Conflict Resolution, Comparative Political Studies, China Quarterly, among other journals.

    YINGYI MA is an Associate Professor of Sociology and the Provost Faculty Fellow on internationalization at Syracuse University. In 2019, she was selected as a Public Intellectual Fellow at the National Committee on US-China Relations. Professor Ma is a sociologist of education and migration. She has published extensively in the areas of education stratification, international student mobility and higher education in China. Her new book, Ambitious and Anxious: How Chinese Undergraduates Succeed and Struggle in American Higher Education, is published by Columbia University Press in Feb 2020, and has since been featured in various national and international media outlets such as Washington Post and Times Higher Education. She got her PhD in sociology from Johns Hopkins University in 2007.

    Series

    Seminaire conjoint d'histoire de la France / Joint French History Seminar

    Description

    This event will be conducted partially in English and partially in French.

    Après un doctorat en médecine vétérinaire (DMV) obtenu en 1992 à l’Université de Montréal, Swann Paradis a exercé la médecine vétérinaire (animaux de compagnie) au Québec pendant plus de 15 ans, parallèlement à ses études littéraires. Ses champs d’intérêt incluent l’histoire naturelle au XVIIIe siècle (littérature, philosophie et sciences), de même que le « roman terrifiant » et le« Romantisme noir », la poésie québécoise et franco-ontarienne contemporaine et l’écriture poétique. Il prépare actuellement une monographie qui devrait paraître quelque part au XXIe siècle chez Hermann, dont le titre provisoire est : Le sixième sens de la taupe. Buffon dans la fabrique des quadrupèdes. Il travaille actuellement sur un projet de recherche ayant reçu l’appui d’une« Subvention Savoir » du CRSH (2016-2020), pour le projet intitulé : « De la ménagerie du Prince d’Orange au Jardin du Roi : Arnout Vosmaer (1720-1799) dans l’ombre de Buffon (1707-1788) ».

    At the beginning of his article on the Bengal Loris published in the 7th and last volume of the Supplément à l’Histoire naturelle in 1789, Buffon (1707-1788) offers a detailed description of an exotic species, based on a monograph written approximately twenty years earlier in 1770 by Aernout Vosmaer (1720-1799), who was the director of stathouder William V of Holland’s Cabinet of Natural History since 1756. Buffon, lacking access to a live or even stuffed specimen, had to rely on the description proposed by Vosmaer, who observed the live exotic animal in the Prince of Orange’s menagerie between 1770 and 1774 ; moreover, to support his harsh critic of how Vosmaer named this strange quadruped — The ‘‘Bengal Five-Toed Sloth’’, Buffon added a black & white copperplate — drawing from Jacques de Sève, engraving by Madeleine Rousselet (ou Veuve Tardieu) — a mirror copy of the coloured plate made from a pen and watercolour drawing by Aert Schouman, published alongside Vosmaer’s original monograph. As natural history was a hotbed of political rivalry, this anecdotic controversy is typical of many others between these two important centres of exotic animal specimens: the French and Dutch national menageries, based respectively in Versailles and Voorburg (a suburb of The Hague).

    À partir de cet exemple emblématique, nous voudrions exposer, au cours de cette présentation bilingue, comment la rivalité entre ces deux puissances coloniales en déclin a des résonances en amont et en aval dans la joute polémique qui se développe entre deux figures incontournables de la scène naturaliste périrévolutionnaire. Pour ce faire, à partir de certaines descriptions textuelles et iconographiques d’animaux exotiques, qui ont donné lieu à des échanges « musclés » entre le célèbre intendant du Jardin du Roi et son homologue néerlandais, beaucoup moins connu, il s’agira de déterminer si, par-delà les motivations nationalistes des protagonistes, ne se dégagerait pas aussi un certain « cosmopolitisme scientifique » propre à la République des Lettres, qui viendrait en quelque sorte réhabiliter la contribution néerlandaise, jusqu’ici plutôt occultée, dans l’histoire de l’histoire naturelle.

    Harney Lecture Series

    Description

    Migration and automation are dominant trends of our age. Both are changing how we work and live. When it comes to migration, many voters want tighter restrictions. They are worried that migrants are ‘stealing their jobs’ and ‘changing the culture’. Politicians are responding with promises to get tough. Automation is different. People worry about automation but not in the same way. Voters are not calling for the numbers of machines to be reduced or even controlled. There are no anti-robot political parties. Politicians do not win elections by getting tough on computer chips.

    The question is ‘why?’ Why is there such significant opposition to migration and yet so little to automation? Why limit migrants but not robots?

    The paper asks these questions not only in relation to the public debate on migration but also the debate amongst philosophers. In the first part, it looks at some of the main philosophical arguments for immigration restrictions and shows how the arguments apply equally to automation. In the second part, the paper offers a hypothesis as to why migration, not automation, generates public opposition. It is human to classify other humans in terms of in-groups and out-groups. Migrants, being human, are readily identified as an out-group. Machines are not human. In short, anti-migrant prejudice seems to explain the difference. If prejudice is so crucial in explaining opposition to immigration, we have further reason to doubt the permissibility of immigration restrictions.
