CONFERENCES AND SYMPOSIA THE LAWRENCE HERBERT SCHOOL OF COMMUNICATION presents

Wednesday and Thursday, March 25 and 26 20/20 VISION: LOOKING BACK AND LOOKING FORWARD ON THE MEDIA LANDSCAPE

No one lives outside of the world of media today. Media studies as a discipline explores communication in the context of an environment saturated with mediated messages in which critical consumption and production are the hallmarks of modern literacy. This symposium – marking the 25th anniversary of the founding of The Lawrence Herbert School of Communication – highlights the powerful insights media studies provides with regard to major issues of our day, from health care and technology to politics and popular culture. The keynote address will be given by Joshua Meyrowitz, professor emeritus of communication at the University of New Hampshire, where he received the Lindberg Award for Outstanding Scholar-Teacher in the College of Liberal Arts. He is the author of the award-winning No Sense of Place: The Impact of Electronic Media on Social Behavior

(Oxford University Press) and of multiple journal articles and book chapters on media and society.

Wednesday, March 4, 2:55-4:30 p.m. With Great Power Comes Great Insanity: Gendering Emotions in Late Medieval and Early Modern Iberia

This presentation investigates the intersection of madness, power, excessive behavior, grief, and reputation in medieval and early modern Iberia. It focuses on the social and cultural environment in which Queen Isabel of Portugal (1428-1496), wife of Juan II of Castile, and her lady in waiting, Beatriz de Silva (1424-1492), lived. As recorded, their relationship was difficult, and, while Beatriz de Silva became a religious figure, the founder of the Monastic Order of the Immaculate Conception of Our Lady, and is celebrated as a saint of the Catholic Church, Isabel of Portugal, the mother of Isabel the Catholic, was marginalized as mentally unbalanced. This presentation opens a window on the early development of the notion of propriety and sanity, in an age that predates Foucault’s 17th century Age of Confinement and Philippe Ariès’ notion that intense emotion in mourning only developed in the Romantic period. Speaker: Núria Silleras-Fernández, Associate Professor of Spanish and Portuguese University of Colorado at Boulder Author, Chariots of Ladies: Francesc Eiximenis and the Court Culture of Medieval and Early Modern Iberia In collaboration with the Department of Romance Languages and Literatures; European Studies Program; and Center for “Race,” Culture and Social Justice.

Out of the more than 50,000 men and 2,500 women incarcerated in New York state, only a tiny fraction have access to higher education.

It’s a program with wide-ranging benefits, including lower rates of recidivism, and it challenges our prioritization of punishment over education. A film by Lynn Novick. In collaboration with the Department of Sociology, Criminology Program, and the Maurice A. Deane School of Law. Fortunoff Theater, Monroe Lecture Center

Wednesday, April 1, 4:30-6 p.m. Uncertainty, Action, and Politics: Negligibility and Climate Change

Is the negligibility of one’s contribution to a problem such as climate change a reason for inaction? This has been asserted for individuals, companies, and even countries, comparing their contribution to the problem to that of others. Melissa Lane diagnoses this line of appeal to “negligibility” as based on a tacit importation of the economic model of perfect competition into the domain of politics, where there is no reason to believe that it should apply. Lane argues that the application of the theory of negligibility to the domain of individual and political action outside an idealized competitive market has distorted our understanding of action and denuded our understanding of politics. Our speaker aims not to solve the problem of negligibility, but to dissolve it. Speaker: Melissa Lane, Class of 1943 Professor of Politics and Director, University Center for Human Values, Princeton University Author, Eco-Republic: What the Ancients Can Teach Us about Ethics, Virtue, and Sustainable Living In collaboration with the Department of Philosophy. Guthart Cultural Center Theater, Axinn Library

Thursday, April 16, 4:30-6 p.m. Massive Agent-Based Simulations of Intelligent Transportation Systems

Dr. Pawel Pralat explains how a team of mathematicians, computer scientists, and engineers from the Computational Methods in Industrial Mathematics Lab (Fields-CQAM and Ryerson University, Toronto, Canada) developed a simulation system that modeled a real operation on the grid of roads in a large city such as Winnipeg or Toronto. The routes of cars were simulated based on the socio-economic profiles of drivers accessible through the Canadian census data. The simulation software developed within the project is freely available as Open Source and uses Julia – the new programming for numerical computing. This approach allows researchers to capture, analyze, and understand dependencies in a real-world complex road system. Speaker: Dr. Pawel Pralat, Associate Professor at Ryerson University and Director of Fields-CQAM Lab on Computational Methods in Industrial Mathematics at The Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences In collaboration with the Department of Mathematics. Guthart Cultural Center Theater, Axinn Library

Thursday, April 23, 2:20-4:10 p.m. Bespoke: Exploring Autism Poetics

Dr. Julia Miele Rodas is professor of English at Bronx Community College of the City University of New York. Her book Autistic Disturbances: Theorizing Autism Poetics from the DSM to Robinson Crusoe (2018) discusses how stigmatized characteristics of autistic language (such as “echolalia”) are reflected in celebrated literary texts (such as repetition in Gertrude Stein). Rodas argues that autistic language is actually an essential part of mainstream literary aesthetics, visible in poetry by Walt Whitman, in novels by Charlotte Brontë and Daniel Defoe, in life writing by Andy Warhol, and even in writing by figures from popular culture. By affirming the aesthetic value of autistic language in literary texts, her book invites readers to reconsider the value of autistic language and autistic ways of being in everyday life. In collaboration with the Disabilities Studies Program. Guthart Cultural Center Theater, Axinn Library

Thursday, April 23, 4:30-6 p.m. Social Justice Reporting: Perspectives From Lolly Bowean

Lolly Bowean, award-winning reporter for the Chicago Tribune, explores the process of telling the stories of her community dealing with race, poverty, and Chicago’s African American community.

Tuesday, April 7, 7 p.m. Meat Planet: Artificial Flesh and the Future of Food

In 2013, a Dutch scientist unveiled the world’s first laboratorycreated hamburger. Since then, the idea of producing meat, not from live animals but from carefully cultured tissues, has spread like wildfire through the media. Meanwhile, cultured meat researchers race against population growth and climate change in an effort to make sustainable protein. In this talk, Benjamin Aldes Wurgaft explores the quest to generate meat in the lab — a substance sometimes called “cultured meat” — and asks what it means to imagine that this is the future of food. While cultured meat is a new development in food technology, the idea of meat without animals has a long history, and it presents us with challenging philosophical questions about the nature of animals, humans, and the limits of technology. Speaker: Dr. Benjamin Aldes Wurgaft, Writer and Historian Visiting Assistant Professor of Social Studies and History Wesleyan University

ISSUES IN JUDAISM LECTURE SERIES Thursday, February 27, 6:30 p.m. ANNUAL CRITICAL SPIRITUALITIES AND GLOBAL JUDAISMS LECTURE What Does it Mean to be a Jew in Post-Ethnic America? Judaism as a Global Religion

American Jewish leader Nahum Goldmann once said, “When things are good for the Jew, they are bad for Judaism.” What he meant was that when the Jews are able to assimilate into the society in which they live, the Jew prospers and Judaism suffers. In this lecture, Dr. Shaul Magid of Dartmouth College, New Hampshire, suggests that while this was largely true, in today’s post-ethnic United States, where Jews are both an integral part of American society and have also survived as a distinct group, Judaism might be reframed as something more than simply that which binds Jews together. Can Judaism, the religion of the Jews, become a “global religion”? Speaker: Dr. Shaul Magid, Distinguished Fellow in Jewish Studies Dartmouth College Guthart Cultural Center Theater, Axinn Library

Wednesday, March 11, at 6:30 p.m. Great Writers, Great Readings: Maxim D. Shrayer

For more information, see page 9. Co-sponsored by the MFA in Creative Writing Program in the Department of English, Department of Religion and the Program in Jewish Studies, Hofstra College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, and Hofstra Hillel: The Center for Jewish Life on Campus.

Tuesday, February 11, 7 p.m. The Alchemy of Italy

What is it about Italy? Cultural superpower yet merely a mountainous Mediterranean peninsula, Italy has exerted an outsized force on the world, Western civilization, and the popular imagination over the course of the millennia. Explore the special alchemy of Italy and the “cultural DNA” that has made Italy not only so influential, but also so beloved.

Discover the lives and legacies of Italy’s “Renaissance women” and those of several unheralded women who inspired some of the greatest artwork of all time. This is an uplifting and illuminating program that examines the evolution of the perceptions of women from Roman and Medieval times through the Renaissance, the inflection point when our concept of today’s modern woman began to take shape. We will discuss women such as Isabella d’Este, Vittoria Colonna, and Artemisia Gentileschi, whose lives and accomplishments continue to inspire us today, while we gain fresh perspectives on some of the Renaissance’s most beloved artists and paintings. In recognition of Women’s History Month.

Hughes’ creative genius was influenced by his life in New York City’s Harlem, the birthplace of the Harlem Renaissance. His literary works helped shape American literature and politics.

This performance features Hofstra Adjunct Professor of Music Tomoko Fujita, cello, with members of the NY Chamber Music Co-op (Lisa Tipton, violin, Adria Benjamin, viola, and Adrienne Kim, piano).

Guest violinist Shannon Thomas of Florida State University celebrates and gives voice to the music of Dame Ethel Smyth, Nadia Boulanger, Rebecca Clarke, Florence Price, and Germaine Tailleferre. In collaboration with the Department of Music. Fortunoff Theater, Monroe Lecture Center

HOFSTRA UNIVERSITY MUSEUM OF ART SPRING 2020 EXHIBITIONS EMILY LOWE GALLERY

Behind Emily Lowe Hall, South Campus

Through June 19 Uncharted: American Abstraction in the Information Age Art, science, and technology have become increasingly intermingled. The distinctions between the disciplines are less clear, heading into unknown territory where all things are possible.

Artists in the exhibition include James O. Clark, John Goodyear, Lynne Harlow, Daniel G. Hill, Gilbert Hsiao, Dorothea Rockburne, Irene Rousseau, James Seawright, and Patricia Zarate.

Other People’s Parties Through March 13

In today’s hyperconnected social world, images of others have become a ubiquitous part of everyday life, but what is it about other people’s parties that intrigues us so much? Is it idle curiosity or something more? This exhibition, featuring photography from artists such as Henri Cartier-Bresson, Larry Fink, Danny Lyon, Mary Ellen Mark, and Andy Warhol, calls attention to the highs and lows of our most social occasions, investigating the human impulse to capture party moments through photography and our desire to live vicariously through images of others.
