Transatlantic Theory Transfer - Missed Encounters?
From March 27, 2015 at 6:00 pm through March 28, 2015 at 6:15 pm EDT
Columbia University Morningside Campus Deutsches Haus

This conference explores why certain intellectual figures and theories prominent in Germany had a limited or even negligible reception in the US. The focus is on authors who have been translated, but have failed to make a major impact on American intellectual life. Examples include Hans Blumenberg, Niklas Luhmann, Reinhart Koselleck, Karl-Heinz Bohrer, Alexander Mitscherlich, Oskar Negt, Alexander Kluge. Others, such as Gershom Scholem, Ernst Kantorowicz, and Norbert Elias did have a limited or short-lived impact, though often in highly specialized fields of research. What explains such limited receptions in the transfers of theory? Why do some theories travel well while others do not? Drawing on materials in the Deutsches Literaturarchiv Marbach (the German Literature Archive in Marbach), nine esteemed scholars from the US and Germany will discuss these thinkers’ theories, their compatibility with intellectual trends in the US, the politics of mediat! ion by publishing houses and journals, and the differing structures of academic life in Germany and the United States.

The conference is organized by Deutsches Literaturarchiv Marbach and New German Critique and co-presented with the Goethe-Institut New York. Co-sponsors are the Department of Germanic Languages and the Institute for Comparative Literature and Society, Columbia University.

Stalking the Essay
From March 28, 2015 through March 29, 2015, All Day Event
Columbia University Morningside Campus Il Teatro - At the Italian Academy for Advanced Studies

The graduate Writing Program at Columbia University School of the Arts is pleased to announce the second annual Stalking the Essay Conference, to be held Saturday, March 28. The conference, organized by Nonfiction Concentration Director Phillip Lop! ate, is free and open to the public. With this symposium, the Writing Program aims to encircle the practices, theories, and possibilities of the essay form by bringing together those who love it.

The goal of the conference is to help build a legacy for the essay as an enduring, various, mutating, endearing, essential literary expression. For this must be said in its favor: the Essay is the classic, reliable tool for human consciousness to track itself, and at the same time to overcome isolation—making it possible for writers to establish with readers a bond of friendship. It is a response to the present historical moment, and a fertile meeting-ground for truth and imagination, the personal and the impersonal.

Women in STEM: Insights from Social Psychology
March 28, 2015 from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm EDT
Columbia University Morningside Campus Barnard College Julius S. Held Lecture Hall 3rd Floor Barnard Hall

Women, and particularly women of color, are underrepresented in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields. Although numerous factors contribute to this underrepresentation, recent research has shown that stereotypes about both kinds of people who succeed at STEM and about the work itself inhibit the engagement, persistence, and performance of women and women of color.

Over the last decade, abundant research in social psychology has documented the causes and consequences of STEM-relevant stereotypes. Recent investigations have identified strategies that produce resilience in the face of stereotypes and negative cues that signal low representation.

This meeting will bring together social psychologists, education researchers, and STEM educators to discuss evidence-based interventions for reducing gender barriers in academic and professional institutions.

NYC: Stalking the Essay 2 - A Two-Day Conference
From March 29, 2015 at 10:00 am through March 30, 2015 at 9:00 pm EDT
New York, NY

The graduate Writing Program at Columbia University School of the Arts is pleased to announce the second Stalking the Essay Conference, to be held Saturday, March 28 and Sunday March 29 from 10 am to 5 pm. The conference, organized by the Director of Nonfiction, Phillip Lopate, is free and open to the public. With this symposium, the Writing Program aims to encircle the practices, theories and possibilities of the essay form by bringing together those who love it.

The essay has a long and glorious history as a literary form, and is the intellectual bellwether of any modern society. The genre is at a particularly interesting transitional moment, what with the emergence of the lyrical essay and other hybrid forms, the debate about the line between nonfiction and fiction, and the resurgence of the essay film, the digital essay and the radio essay. While considerable experimentation is going on at the moment, it should be noted that the essay has always been a daringly open, experimental form—from the French word “essai,” meaning “attempt.” Unlike fiction and poetry, which have spawned systematized approaches to narratology and poetics, the essay continues to be an elusive eel in the literary waters, neglected by scholars. As one of the genre’s foremost experts, Carl H. Klaus, has written, “a methodology for understanding the essay is long overdue.” The conference will attempt to contribute toward developing this methodology, as well as celebrating the varieties of this ubiquitous form.

This is the second Stalking the Essay to be held. The first was a one-day conference in 2013 and strictly a literary affair. Stalking the Essay 2 will be double the length and investigate the essay across media: literature, film, radio, and graphics. It is intended to be the second of an annual event, as part of a larger effort to establish Columbia University as a magnet for studying the essayÂ’s history and current practice, and nurturing and propagating its future. What makes this location so apt is Columbia's especially rich essayistic tradition, which includes Lionel Trilling, Jacques Barzun, John Dewey, Mark van Doren, F. W. Dupee, James Weldon Johnson, Langston Hughes, Randolph Bourne, Zora Neale Hurston, Franz Boas, Ruth Benedict, Daniel Bell, Susan Sontag, Meyer Schapiro, Eric Bentley and Edward Said.

The goal of the conference is to help build a legacy for the essay as an enduring, various, mutating, endearing, essential creative expression. For this must be said in its favor: the Essay is the classic, reliable tool for human consciousness to track itself, and at the same time to overcome isolation—making it possible for writers to establish with readers a bond of friendship. It is a response to the present historical moment, and a fertile meeting-ground for truth and imagination, the personal and the impersonal.

The Concept of Artistic Transfer Applied to a Rural Thematic: A Comparison of Painting in the USSR and United States
March 30, 2015 from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm EDT
Columbia University Morningside Campus International Affairs Building Room 1219

Please join the Harriman Institute for a talk by Juliette Milbach (Visiting Scholar, Harriman Institute).

In the 1920s, American realism, though incorporating foreign influences including European realism, distinguishes itself in the importance accorded daily life. Works of artists of the Ashcan school, led by Robert Henry, pay particular attention to urban life and echoes contemporary literature (e.g. Dos Passos’s USA trilog). After 1929, this movement takes a new turn with public commissions during the New Deal aimed at illustrating the national history for the masses. This new focus has its equivalent in Social realism as demonstrated by Boris Groys in Educating the Masses: Socialist Realist Art.

During the 1930s in USSR, artists were asked to illustrate collectivization, and were encouraged to go to the kolkhoz. Moreover, all major exhibitions in Moscow and Leningrad had a rural section. This thematic is illustrated by such prominent painters as Arkady Plastov, Sergey Gerasimov, Mikhail Avilov, Vitold Bialynisky-Birulia, Fedor Bogorodsky. This production should be compared to U.S. works of art from the same period, for example, Mexican artists working in New York during that decade and the American regionalism of Thomas Hart Benton.

Electrical Engineering Distinguished Lectures
March 30, 2015 from 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm EDT
Columbia University Morningside Campus CEPSR 414, Davis Auditorium

Is Terahertz a Communication Waste Land or a Vibrant Frontier?

ABSTRACT The infamous “Terahertz Gap” represents frequency spectrum that ranges from 0.3 to 3THz (or 300 to 3000GHz). It lies between traditional microwave and infrared domains but remains “untouchable” via either electronic or photonic means. The conventional “transit-time-limited” electronic devices can hardly operate even at its lowest frequency; the “band-gap-limited” photonic devices on the other hand can only operate beyond its highest frequency. Since wavelengths range from 1000 to 100 μm, Terahertz signals tend to behave quasi-optically and are potentially instrumental for a wide range of scientific and industrial applications. Those include high-data rate, short distance and secured wireless & wireline communications, telemetric and remote sensing based on high-resolution radar, spectrometer and imagers for intelligent traffic/landing control, safety/security screening and bio-medical/food/drug sensing, and analysis and controls. In this talk, we will discuss fundamental & technical challenges involved in building Terahertz systems and progress made recently at UCLA to overcome electronic/photonic barriers for realizing highly integrated (sub)-mm-Wave and Terahertz systems.  

BIO Mau-Chung Frank Chang, Professor University of California, Los Angeles Host: Professor Harish Krishnaswamy Electrical Engineering Distinguished Lectures Dr. Frank Chang is currently the Wintek Chair Professor and Chairman of the Electrical Engineering Department at UCLA. Before joining UCLA in 1997, he was the Assistant Director and Department Manager of the High Speed Electronics Laboratory at the Rockwell Science Center, Thousand Oaks, California (1983-1997). Throughout his career, his research has primarily focused on developing high-speed semiconductor devices and circuits for high-frequency and mixed-signal communication, radar, interconnect and imaging systems. He was elected to the National Academy of Engineering in 2008 and Academia Sinica (Taiwan, ROC) in 2012. He is an IEEE Fellow and received the IEEE David Sarnoff Award in 2006 for developing and commercializing GaAs HBT power amplifiers for modern wireless communication systems (especially for cell phones).
