    TALK: “I AM FRAGILE AND SMALL”: VERSIONS OF MASCULINITY IN SOVIET UNOFFICIAL POETICS

    In “’I am fragile and small’”: Versions of Masculinity in Soviet Unofficial Poetics,” Ainsley Morse will examine the presentation of masculinity (usually that of the lyric speaker) in the work of several unofficial poets of the late Soviet period. As an institution, unofficial literature occupied a powerless position vis-a-vis officially published literature; yet, unofficial poets drew on the tradition of predecessors including Vladimir Mayakovsky and Daniil Kharms to construct a lyric presence that combined exaggerated weakness (“loserdom”) with the implicit power of the voice and word.

    TALK: WINDS, DREAMS, THEATER: A GENEALOGY OF EMOTION-REALMS THROUGH THE LENS OF THE PEONY PAVILION

    In his talk, Lam will give a revisionist history of emotions in Chinese literature and culture centered on the idea of emotion as space – which the Chinese call “emotion-realm” (qingjing) – rather than a state of mind. If The Peony Pavilion (Mudan ting, 1598) is the romantic play par excellence in early modern China, it is not because, as many assume, it celebrates emotion as the innermost essence of a liberated individual. Rather, it is because the play eloquently encapsulates the three major historical regimes of the spatiality of emotion: winds, dreamscapes, and theatricality.

    THE LAWRENCE BADASH MEMORIAL LECTURE SERIES: TRUMAN’S BOMB AND THE MAKING OF THE ATOMIC PRESIDENCY

    When we think of the importance of the atomic bomb to the Truman presidency, we think of Truman’s weighty decision regarding the use of the weapon on Japan. But historians have known for decades that the narrative of “the decision to use the bomb” is largely mythical, and his actual role was mostly peripheral. But despite this, Truman did make several decisions during the war that would have vast consequences for the future of nuclear weapons, decisions that still resonate today.

    TALK: SANCTUARY AND LITERATURE: WORDS ON THE MOVE

    In the present refugee crisis, millions of people are being driven from their homes by war, religious conflict, racial ostracism, famine, and poverty. Can literature help? Stripped of material possessions, refugees, migrants, and ‘arrivants’ still own their minds, which are filled with memories, stories, and knowledge. Can the cultural baggage of the imagination, the stories that displaced people carry in their heads, provide ways of establishing connection with their new circumstances?
