Mindscapes VIII: Metamorphosis

Susan Schur returns to the Gutman Library with her paintings, Mindscapes VIII: Metamorphosis. Ms. Schur utilizes various techniques of employing oil paint on paper and board to create works that provide exciting, multi-layer visual experiences, with each viewer becoming an active participant in the realization of the vision presented. She invites the viewer to continually move through the process of assimilation, review, modification, and reinterpretation while engaging with her work. In this manner, the abstract shapes in Ms. Schur's paintings continually evolve, and evolve somewhat differently, for each viewer. Gazette Classification: Art/Design. Exhibitions. Organization/Sponsor: Gutman Library. Tuesday, October 15, 2019. Gutman Library Gallery 6 Appian Way Cambridge. For more info visit www.gse.harvard.edu.

Cosmic Origins

On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong stepped down from the Apollo 11 lunar lander and impressed the Moon’s dusty surface with the first human bootprint. This singular moment — when humanity set foot on a world outside Planet Earth — inspired a vibrant new age of scientific and technological research that has vastly improved the understanding of our planet, solar system, and wider universe. On July 20, 2019, the Harvard Museum of Natural History will mark the 50th anniversary of the first manned mission to the Moon with the unveiling of Cosmic Origins.

Fruits in Decay: Glass Flowers Exhibit

Saturday, Aug. 31, 2019 – Sunday, March 1, 2020 While we eagerly await the ripening of our favorite summer fruits, microscopic competitors are at work multiplying and consuming them in a world beyond our sight. If we wait too long, the activity of fungi, bacteria, and other microbes will soon appear as an unexpected blotch, suspicious “fuzz,” or oddly curled foliage. Fruits in Decay is a new special exhibit in the Glass Flowers gallery that explores blight, rot, and other diseases on summer fruits. It features exquisitely detailed glass botanical models of strawberries, peaches, apricots, plums, and pears made by famed glass artist Rudolf Blaschka. On display for the first time in nearly two decades, these models capture — with astonishing realism — the intricacies and strange beauty of fruits in various stages of decay.

The Rittase Touch: Photographic Views of Harvard in the 1930s

In the fall of 1932, Harvard invited William Rittase (1894-1968), a Philadelphia-based photographer, to Cambridge to capture views of Harvard Yard, its buildings, and the greater campus beyond its gates. Ultimately, he produced a series of 87 photographs, now held at the Harvard University Archives, that visually document Harvard in a period of unprecedented growth and change. On exhibit are 11 original gelatin silver prints of Rittase's 1932 Harvard photographs as well as several reproductions, all placed in their historical, technological, and artistic context. Come see how Harvard was changing in the early '30s, and investigate how it has changed since. Gazette Classification: Art/Design. Education. Exhibitions.

Crossing Lines, Constructing Home: Displacement and Belonging in Contemporary Art

What does it mean to be displaced from culture and home? What are the historical contexts for understanding our contemporary moment? How does an artist’s work and process embody and engage the narratives of displacement and belonging? "Crossing Lines, Constructing Home" investigates two parallel ideas: national, political, and cultural conceptions of boundaries and borders; and the evolving hybrid spaces, identities, languages, and beliefs created by the movement of peoples.

Visual Science: The Art of Research

This exhibit features images and objects drawn from a variety of disciplines and time periods that show the importance of visual experiences in science. Images have played many roles in scientific research. Images can record fleeting observations, whether a painting of an animal glimpsed in the field or an interaction between sub-atomic particles that lasts a millisecond. They can also make unseen things visible. Physical models can make abstract mathematical concepts into something that researchers can touch; properly arranged, sand, metal plates, and a violin bow can make sound waves into images. Finding patterns in both kinds of images, or painstakingly transforming images into data can lead to new discoveries. Images also play a role in summarizing, clarifying, and communicating ideas. Compelling images have often helped people understand and accept radically new ideas, turning what might at first be a hard to understand into a new commonsense understanding. Other times, visual representations can help… Gazette Classification: Art/Design. Exhibitions. Science. Organization/Sponsor: Harvard Museums of Science & Culture. Cost: Free.

Cooperative Property Rights and Development: Evidence from Land Reform in El Salvador

This presentation examines the effects of cooperative ownership — a form of ownership particularly prevalent in Latin America — on agricultural productivity and economic development. It focus on the 1980 El Salvador land reform program, where properties owned by individuals with cumulative holdings over 500 hectares were targeted for redistribution to the former hacienda workers in the form of cooperatives, but properties belonging to individuals with less than 500 hectares were to remain as privately-owned haciendas. Relative to properties that were never expropriated, the reform cooperatives are (i) less likely to produce cash crops and more likely to produce staple crops; (ii) less productive at cash crops; but more productive at staple crops, and (iii) have higher worker incomes and more compressed wage distributions.

Undesign the Redline: The Transformation of Race, Place, and Class in America

Join us for Undesign the Redline: the Transformation of Race, Place, and Class in America, a lecture by April De Simone and Katie Swenson, moderated by Miriam Aschkenasy MD, MPH, MPA, Program Manager, Institutional Anti-racism and Accountability. Undesign the Redline: the Transformation of Race, Place, and Class in America is an explorative and visioning framework for addressing systemic challenges. These challenges — inequalities in housing, education, income, criminal justice, and health — are far from separate issues. These challenges are rooted in a deep and entangled history of policies, practices and processes that remain unrevealed and misunderstood. As new forces begin to transform cities and towns, decisions about interconnected challenges are, therefore, often made ‘in the dark.’ Gone unanswered are fundamental questions about our communities: how did we get here, and what does that mean for where we are going?

The Campaigns Against the Protestant Proselytism and Presence in Italy between Fascism and Early Republican Period

Show on Harvard Gazette Since the Lateran Pacts of 1929, Fascist Regime implemented restrictive rules towards Protestant minorities in Italy and their proselytizing efforts. After the end of the Second World War, Protestant efforts in Italy restarted with even more intensity. To repress these actions and, more in general, to contrast the growth of Protestant presence in Italy, the Christian Democrats’ led governments adopted the old laws and decrees promulgated by Fascism. This lecture aims to underline the continuities and differences in the anti-Protestant policies put in order by Fascist Regime and by the first “centrist” Republican governments.  Paolo Zanini is Researcher (RTD-B) in Contemporary History at the Department of Historical Studies of the University of Milan.

Study Group with LaTosha Brown: Organizing The Power of the Sister Vote!: The Political Impact of Women Voters, Women Movements and 2020 Presidential Candidates On American Politics

On Jan. 21, 2017, the world witnessed one of the largest protest marches ever in modern history — all organized and led by women. In December 2017, the Republican Party received an unexpected, rare and historic defeat for a U.S. Senate seat in Alabama. This defeat also resulted from the work, coordination and political strategy led by women. Again, in the 2018 midterms we witnessed the work and leadership of women with the election of a new Congress that has more women members than ever in American history. In 2020, there will be more women Presidential candidates than ever in America’s history. In this study session, we will explore what has propelled this increased representation of women within political leadership. What has been the catalyst to the modern women’s movement?

Fruits in Decay: Glass Flowers Exhibit

Saturday, Aug. 31, 2019 – Sunday, March 1, 2020 While we eagerly await the ripening of our favorite summer fruits, microscopic competitors are at work multiplying and consuming them in a world beyond our sight. If we wait too long, the activity of fungi, bacteria, and other microbes will soon appear as an unexpected blotch, suspicious “fuzz,” or oddly curled foliage. Fruits in Decay is a new special exhibit in the Glass Flowers gallery that explores blight, rot, and other diseases on summer fruits. It features exquisitely detailed glass botanical models of strawberries, peaches, apricots, plums, and pears made by famed glass artist Rudolf Blaschka. On display for the first time in nearly two decades, these models capture — with astonishing realism — the intricacies and strange beauty of fruits in various stages of decay.

Visual Science: The Art of Research

This exhibit features images and objects drawn from a variety of disciplines and time periods that show the importance of visual experiences in science. Images have played many roles in scientific research. Images can record fleeting observations, whether a painting of an animal glimpsed in the field or an interaction between sub-atomic particles that lasts a millisecond. They can also make unseen things visible. Physical models can make abstract mathematical concepts into something that researchers can touch; properly arranged, sand, metal plates, and a violin bow can make sound waves into images. Finding patterns in both kinds of images, or painstakingly transforming images into data can lead to new discoveries. Images also play a role in summarizing, clarifying, and communicating ideas. Compelling images have often helped people understand and accept radically new ideas, turning what might at first be a hard to understand into a new commonsense understanding. Other times, visual representations can help… Gazette Classification: Art/Design. Exhibitions. Science. Organization/Sponsor: Harvard Museums of Science & Culture. Cost: Free.

Images can record fleeting observations, whether a painting of an animal glimpsed in the field or an interaction between sub-atomic particles that lasts a millisecond. They can also make unseen things visible. Physical models can make abstract mathematical concepts into something that researchers can touch; properly arranged, sand, metal plates, and a violin bow can make sound waves into images. Finding patterns in both kinds of images, or painstakingly transforming images into data can lead to new discoveries. Images also play a role in summarizing, clarifying, and communicating ideas. Compelling images have often helped people understand and accept radically new ideas, turning what might at first be a hard to understand into a new commonsense understanding. Other times, visual representations can help… Gazette Classification: Art/Design. Exhibitions. Science. Organization/Sponsor: Harvard Museums of Science & Culture. Cost: Free.

The Aftermath of Zika in Brazil

While media attention about Zika has all but disappeared, there are still new cases being identified in Brazil, as well as other countries in the region such as Cuba and Venezuela. However, governments and other health authorities are doing little to stem the spread of the virus, particularly sexual transmission which can be prevented by sexuality education and other sexual and reproductive health services such as contraception. As a result, women continue to bear the brunt of the epidemic; particularly poor, young, women of color who have little access to health care and live in areas with high mosquito populations.

The Ethical Costs of Upward Mobility

This talk discusses the ethical costs upwardly mobile students must bear if they are to dramatically transform their life circumstances. These costs affect their relationships with family and friends, their sense of cultural identity, and their place in their community. Morton argues they are ethical in so far as they concern those aspects of life that give it value and meaning. Using social science evidence, Morton shows how these costs are the result of a complex tangle of economic, cultural, and structural factors that unjustly and disproportionately affect disadvantaged students and their communities. Morton suggests that we need to offer students a new ethical narrative of upward mobility that recognizes and acknowledges these ethical costs. Morton concludes with some thoughts on how institutions of higher educate might mitigate some of these costs. Gazette Classification: Education.

Fruits in Decay: Glass Flowers Exhibit

Saturday, Aug. 31, 2019 – Sunday, March 1, 2020 While we eagerly await the ripening of our favorite summer fruits, microscopic competitors are at work multiplying and consuming them in a world beyond our sight. If we wait too long, the activity of fungi, bacteria, and other microbes will soon appear as an unexpected blotch, suspicious “fuzz,” or oddly curled foliage. Fruits in Decay is a new special exhibit in the Glass Flowers gallery that explores blight, rot, and other diseases on summer fruits. It features exquisitely detailed glass botanical models of strawberries, peaches, apricots, plums, and pears made by famed glass artist Rudolf Blaschka.

Visual Science: The Art of Research

This exhibit features images and objects drawn from a variety of disciplines and time periods that show the importance of visual experiences in science. Images have played many roles in scientific research. Images can record fleeting observations, whether a painting of an animal glimpsed in the field or an interaction between sub-atomic particles that lasts a millisecond. They can also make unseen things visible. Physical models can make abstract mathematical concepts into something that researchers can touch; properly arranged, sand, metal plates, and a violin bow can make sound waves into images. Finding patterns in both kinds of images, or painstakingly transforming images into data can lead to new discoveries. Images also play a role in summarizing, clarifying, and communicating ideas. Compelling images have often helped people understand and accept radically new ideas, turning what might at first be a hard to understand into a new commonsense understanding. Other times, visual representations can help… Gazette Classification: Art/Design. Exhibitions. Science. Organization/Sponsor: Harvard Museums of Science & Culture. Cost: Free.

The Jordan-Israel Peace Treaty: 25 Years Later

This month marks 25 years since the groundbreaking treaty was signed between Jordan and Israel, which set expectations for ending violence and developing economic cooperation, security, and management of joint natural resources for their mutual benefit. The Jordan-Israel Peace Treaty, forged by the courageous leadership of King Hussein of the Hashemite Kingdom and Prime Minister Rabin with the full support and encouragement of U.S. President Clinton, was also expected to accelerate progress on the Israeli-Palestinian Peace Process. H.E. Dr. Jawad Anani, who, among his other ministerial responsibilities, served as coordinator of the Peace Process during the 1990s, will share his experiences during that critical period of peacemaking and will then fast forward to assess today’s challenges and opportunities in relations between the two countries in light of developments in the Middle East and the changing roles of world powers in the region.

IACS Seminar: "On the Detection of Malware on Virtual Assistants Based on Behavioral Anomalies"

Lunch will not be provided. Dr. Spiros Mancoridis's work explores some of the security concerns pertaining to running software similar to Amazon Alexa home assistant on IoT-like platforms. Researchers implemented a behavioral-based malware detector and compared the effectiveness of different system attributes that are used in detecting malware, i.e. system calls, network traffic, and the integration of system call and network traffic features. Given the small number of malware samples for IoT devices, researchers created a parameterizable malware sample that mimics Alexa behavior in varying degrees, while exfiltrating data from the device to a remote host. The performance of the anomaly detector was evaluated based on how well it determined the presence of the parameterized malware on an Alexa-enabled IoT device.

Listen Up Philip

Openly inspired by the writings of Perry’s long-time idol Philip Roth, and his Zuckerman novels in particular, "Listen Up Philip" gives Jason Schwartzman one of his best roles to date as an eccentric and insufferable writer perched at the edge of a successful career he both feels entitled to and secretly fears. A cautionary tale about hubris and artistic ambition, "Listen Up Philip" is also a cutting satire of the writer’s life that seems to embrace, only to upend, all too well known literary rites of passage: the dissolution of a toxic relationship, acceptance into incestuous salons, mentorship with an older writer that sours into rivalry. Using a ruminative voiceover (spoken by Eric Bogosian), Perry tellingly gives his film a novelistic richness of perspective, at one point breaking away from Schwartzman’s Philip to follow his photographer girlfriend, given real depth by a marvelous Elisabeth Moss — in her first collaboration with Perry — while also lingering on the figure of the older writer-mentor played… Gazette Classification: Film.

My Name is Julia Ross/So Dark the Night

One of the great delights of the B-film is that rare chance to see a favorite character actor elevated to a starring role, like menacing tough guy Charles McGraw’s transformation into a bulletproof cop in "Armored Car Robbery," or Hungarian émigré Steven Geray, the suave maître d’ and waiter in countless pictures, now cast as a Parisian detective whose engagement to a small-town innkeeper’s daughter is shattered by her gruesome murder. Determined to catch the killer, Geray embarks on a strange and twisting path, interrogating subjects while his criminal prey remains always one step away. In this stylish follow-up to his breakthrough hit, the Gothic plot-twister "My Name is Julia Ross," Joseph H. Lewis makes clear his wild talent for the unexpected stories and bold mise-en-scène that give his films the giddy intensity so beloved by true cinephiles. Regularly rediscovered as a cult classic, "So Dark the Night" drew the attention of Columbia executives who began to unsuccessfully groom Lewis for bigger-budget as… Gazette Classification: Film.

Images have played many roles in scientific research.

Early Christian Africa: Arts of Transformation

Christianity has important early roots in the Nile Valley and Ethiopia. Related arts often embody core local African values — an aesthetics that privileges moral value and simplicity over opulence, wealth, or power. This is an art of the people: limestone not marble, wool and linen rather than silk, bone instead of ivory, terracotta, wood, and copper in place of gold. Gazette Classification: Art/Design.

Swimming Pool

With his archly stylish and self-conscious thriller, Ozon made clear his playful dedication to a postmodern variant of auteurist cinema by taking the title, sundrenched setting and uneasy eroticism from Jacques Deray’s eponymous, now-classic 1969 film to create an uncanny almost-doppelgänger feature placed in deliberate quotes by the figure of Charlotte Rampling as a popular but frustrated British crime novelist come to France to try and write in a different vein. What Rampling encounters in her promised Provence idyll is, of course, not what she expected, but instead what the knowing viewer not so secretly hoped for: a sex thriller murder mystery announced by the sudden arrival of the brooding nymphet daughter of Rampling’s publisher, who immediately sets into play a slow-motion and ambiguous rivalry with the older woman. As the mysterious daughter, Ozon regular Ludivine Sagnier injects a searching energy into the story as she gradually challenges Rampling to unleash her inhibitions, promising to reveal dark… Gazette Classification: Film.

The Color Wheel/The Magic Land of Mother Goose

In his second feature, Perry works only with flat shades of grey to fill in the infinite spectrum of his sardonic, deviant strain of screwball comedy. In the film that put the young director’s name on every critic’s watch list, twenty-something JR, an aspiring news reporter, recruits her brother Colin — still living at home — to accompany her across the country to retrieve belongings from her ex-boyfriend/professor. Their respective insecurities provide plenty of material for the siblings’ relentless — and mostly hilarious, occasionally offensive — insults and banter; the oddly complementary and oppositional bond only showing signs of tenderness when one is in the crosshairs of those even more ridiculously cruel than they are. With a style and tone that feels as careless and awkwardly self-consciousness as its two unsympathetic leads, the film maintains a bizarrely engaging and unnerving balance of comedy and agitation. When unguarded connection and compassion finally appear, the emotional release is compromi… Gazette Classification: Film. Organization/Sponsor: Harvard Film Archive.

Mindscapes VIII: Metamorphosis

Susan Schur returns to the Gutman Library with her paintings, Mindscapes VIII: Metamorphosis. Ms. Schur utilizes various techniques of employing oil paint on paper and board to create works that provide exciting, multi-layer visual experiences, with each viewer becoming an active participant in the realization of the vision presented. She invites the viewer to continually move through the process of assimilation, review, modification, and reinterpretation while engaging with her work.

Cosmic Origins

On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong stepped down from the Apollo 11 lunar lander and impressed the Moon’s dusty surface with the first human bootprint. This singular moment — when humanity set foot on a world outside Planet Earth — inspired a vibrant new age of scientific and technological research that has vastly improved the understanding of our planet, solar system, and wider universe. On July 20, 2019, the Harvard Museum of Natural History will mark the 50th anniversary of the first manned mission to the Moon with the unveiling of Cosmic Origins. Visitors to this new small exhibit — located within our Earth & Planetary Sciences exhibition — will investigate the origins of and processes shaping planetary bodies and stars by using touchable specimens, colorful visuals, and interactive media.

Fruits in Decay: Glass Flowers Exhibit

Saturday, Aug. 31, 2019 – Sunday, March 1, 2020 While we eagerly await the ripening of our favorite summer fruits, microscopic competitors are at work multiplying and consuming them in a world beyond our sight. If we wait too long, the activity of fungi, bacteria, and other microbes will soon appear as an unexpected blotch, suspicious “fuzz,” or oddly curled foliage. Fruits in Decay is a new special exhibit in the Glass Flowers gallery that explores blight, rot, and other diseases on summer fruits. It features exquisitely detailed glass botanical models of strawberries, peaches, apricots, plums, and pears made by famed glass artist Rudolf Blaschka. On display for the first time in nearly two decades, these models capture — with astonishing realism — the intricacies and strange beauty of fruits in various stages of decay.

My Name is Julia Ross/So Dark the Night

B-film maverick Joseph H. Lewis delivered a low-rent yet brilliantly stylized reply to Rebecca and Gaslight starring a sensitive Nina Foch, in her debut role, as a young woman abducted to a seaside mansion to play the role of an already dead woman and victim of a sinister scheme. With George Macready as a knife-wielding psychotic man-child and Dame May Whitty as his coddling elderly mother, "My Name is Julia Ross" releases the Gothic spirits of the Forties woman-trapped-in-an-old-house cycle into a brisk thriller animated by comically irreverent touches. True to its boldly assertive title, "My Name is Julia Ross" flaunts the rich potential of the B-film to act as a revealingly distorting mirror of the more predictable big-budgeted A-films. Indeed, scenes of Foch pulling apart the wall panels and staircases to discover secret passages seem to subversively celebrate the threadbare sets of Lewis’ low-budget production.

The Wind is Driving Him Towards the Open Sea

In the beginning a philosopher tells of seeing his hero, DiMaggio, hit a home run. How did he know he hit a home run? He checked the newspapers. How did they know? The philosophers ask, ‘How can we prove that this is grass?’ How do we know anything? The Wind… is about those explorations one must make to find out about the world. The object of any man’s exploration must ultimately be a woman, a kumari. In the film a boy travels, while we search for a man, Chandler Moore. He is never found, but we see the world he has made for himself. When one does not find a kumari one often finds a kumiss. A film in numerous realities including those of image, news, myth, philosophy, documentary, mythopoeia. Gazette Classification: Film. Organization/Sponsor: Harvard Film Archive.
