Dinner will be a la carte, split bill format. Place: American Center Japan NOF Tameike Building, 8F 1-1-14, Akasaka Minato-ku, Tokyo 107-0052 Map and Directions: http://japan.usembassy.gov/e/amc/tamc-map.html Topic: “Prime Minister Abe Revisited: Old Politics in a New (Media) Environment?” · The first time Abe became Prime Minister in September 2006, The Japan Times wrote; “To fathom Abe, just look at his grandfather.” He certainly acted on his conservative ideology, stressing more assertive Japan in international relations including military affairs, a smaller-government Japan in welfare policies like pension reforms, and a beautiful Japan (utsukushii kuni) in social and cultural affairs including education. And many of his actions, as well as his aides’, met severe criticisms from the opposition parties and the mass media. This time, what he pursues seems to have changed little, but the responses of the opposition parties and the media apparently have. He has been enjoying a relatively high level of support since his second inauguration. What does he do better this time? Has he changed, or have his critics? If anyone has changed, how? In this lecture, I will discuss some changes in political and media environment in an attempt to understand Abe’s politics better.

Inequality and Economic Performance Conference

Date:From December 02, 2014 at 8:30 am through December 03, 2014 at 1:15 pm EST
Location:Faculty House, Columbia University
Contact:For further information regarding this event, please contact CGEG by sending email to cgeg@columbia.edu .
Info:Click Here to Visit Website.

By invitation only.

There is a growing consensus that excessive inequality and the way that much of the inequality is generated undermine economic performance, broadly understood. The purpose of the conference is to assess the state of the art: What does economic theory say about how inequality should affect economic performance? What is the macroeconomic evidence on the effects of inequality on economic performance? What are the microeconomic channels through which the effects are exercised? Are there distinct effects associated with inequality as opposed to income declines or increases in poverty? How might policy make growth more inclusive?

We are casting the net widely with respect to both of the key concepts: economic performance and inequality. We do not just mean GDP. We want to assess, for instance, the effects on sustainability (stability), median income, productivity, or any other aspects of economic performance that deserve attention. Different aspects of economic performance and different channels suggest a focus on different aspects of inequality. Can we disentangle the effects of inequality of income from inequality of wealth? Should we differentiate inequality of outcomes from inequality of opportunity? Can we identify specific welfare consequences arising from inequalities affecting particular groups?

The failure of some studies, using one metric of inequality, to identify an adverse effect of inequality (say on stability) may be because the focus was on the wrong metric. The Gini coefficient may be relevant for some purposes, but in order to capture major differences amongst countries (especially within the developing world) the Palma ratio may be a better measure.

The conference will focus on the causal link between inequality and economic performance in both developed and developing countries; and it will explore the possibility that there may be some important differences in causal links. A better understanding of theses links would enable us to give middle income countries sufficient advance warning of what may lie in store for them.

Our ultimate interest is in policy and setting a research agenda. Are there some policies, which can both strengthen economic performance and reduce inequality? What are the big lacunae in our knowledge? How should limited research budgets be allocated? How can policy choices be better informed?

Date:December 02, 2014 from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm EST
Location:Columbia Medical Center (CUMC) – 168th Street & Bdwy.- Russ Berrie Pavilion - 1150 St. Nicholas Avenue - Conf. Room 1

Inaugural Eurasianet - Harriman Institute Forum

Date:December 02, 2014 from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm EST
Location:International Affairs Building, Room 1501
Contact:For further information regarding this event, please contact Ilke Denizli by sending email to zid2000@columbia.edu .
Info:Click Here to Visit Website.

Please join the Harriman Institute and Columbia University's School of Journalism for a half-day forum on Eurasia. 

The inaugural EurasiaNet/Harriman Institute Forum will be held on December 2, 2014, at Columbia University’s International Affairs Building (118th St. and Amsterdam Ave., Room 1501). The Forum will offer a unique opportunity to gain insight into the underlying trends of a deepening confrontation between Russia and the West that extends into the realms of ideas, information and values.
 
Russia in 2014 has moved aggressively to reassert its authority across Eurasia, and challenge the European order established by the 1975 Helsinki Final Act. Unlike the Cold War, when nuclear warheads were the dominant factor, the chief instrument in the Kremlin’s arsenal these days is mass media. Moscow has harnessed the power of television and the Internet to mobilize domestic public opinion behind Kremlin efforts to destabilize Ukraine, and to extend Russia’s sway in Central Asia and the Caucasus. Mass media has also been instrumental in enabling Russian President Vladimir Putin to stoke a culture conflict, in which basic Western concepts of justice and fairness have been cast as inimical to traditional Russian values. Western efforts to counter the Russian narrative have themselves often resorted to Cold War stereotypes and images, furthering fueling the divide and myth-making. The EurasiaNet/Harriman Institute Forum will highlight the latest developments in Russian mass media, examine its effects across Eurasia and ponder the geopolitical implications. It also hopes to stimulate discussion about possible responses to Russian media policies.
 
The Harriman/EurasiaNet Forum, sponsored in conjunction with the Columbia School of Journalism, will bring together a dynamic collection of journalists and academic experts, providing for a 360-degree review of pivotal issues shaping Russia’s involvement in Ukraine and its efforts to reestablish itself as a great power. The half-day event will feature two panel discussions.

Improvisation in the Arts: A Symposium

Romare Bearden constantly made the color he constantly looked for. His collages mirrored and enacted what critic Laura Harris calls the aesthetics of black social life, moving against the brutalities of removal and enclosure that structure global black experience and, therefore, the modern world. A Black Odyssey refers, though, not only to Afro-diasporic travel and travail but also to an anoriginary movement of in the art of the West that blackness has come to signify—the polyrhythmic, oral-formulaic, insurgent innovation that was also Homer’s home away from home.

In this panel, a multi-disciplinary group of artists and scholars will sit in with Bearden, gathering with and around his Odyssean practice, his restless, wandering devotion to the scrap, the fragment, the musical moment, and his abiding in and with the imagination, whose enduring philosophical racialization renders it both disposable and appropriable. The intensity of Bearden’s commitment to the aesthetic contact and content of black social life in its broadest dimensions will serve as an impetus for a wide-ranging discussion of the protocols and implications of improvisation in music, literature, theology, cinema, dance and critical theory. Along with Bearden and, most importantly, the audience, the panel hopes to form a new experimental band.

Program Participants:
Fred Moten is author of In the Break: The Aesthetics of the Black Radical Tradition, Hughson’s Tavern, B. Jenkins, The Undercommons Fugitive Planning and Black Study (with Stefano Harney), The Feel Trio and The Little Edges. Moten lives in Los Angeles and teaches at the University of California, Riverside.

John Akomfrah OBE, is a seminal figure in Black British Cinema and forerunner in digital cinematography. He has a body of work that is considered one of the most distinctive and innovative in contemporary Britain. Born in Ghana, to politically active parents he moved to London at an early age. He was a founding figure in the influential cine cultural group Black Audio Film Collective which was dedicated to exploring questions of Black British identity, race and class through film and media. In 1999, he set up Smoking Dogs Films - which simultaneously cohabits the worlds of broadcast, cinema and the arts - with his long term producing partners, David Lawson and Lina Gopaul. John has served on numerous boards as a governor, including the British Film Institute and Film London and has taught at a number of institutions around the world including MIT, Yale and the University of Westminster. John Akomfrah is a director, writer and theorist who creates documentaries, feature films and exhibitions that have garnered international critical acclaim.

J. Kameron Carter  is a professor and teaches courses in both theology and black church studies. Working as a theologian, he addresses the basic areas of Christian thought, especially attending to Christology (the person and work of Jesus Christ) and theological anthropology (the human being in Christian perspective). But in engaging such matters, he does so with a view not just to the church or to Christian believers. He does so with a view to the broader humanities, particularly, with an eye toward such fields as cultural studies, gender studies, and philosophy and literature. His book Race: A Theological Account (New York: Oxford University Press, 2008) has recently appeared. He is presently working on a new book on the ideological uses of Jesus in the modern invention of the human, and thus in the making and sustaining of the present. Addressing this in its religious, secular, and now arguably post-secular forms, Professor Carter calls this the problem of “the cultural Jesus.” The project provides a theological, which at the same time is a cultural, archaeology of the present by getting inside of this problem. But beyond this, and having gotten inside of this problem, Professor Carter reimagines the identity of Jesus and the politics of his identity in light of the new, global realities of the 21st century.

Danielle Goldman In her research, she analyzes the social, cultural, and historical conditions that affect how people move. She is fascinated by critical theories of the body, and  tendd to think about dance as an arena for experimental relations between self and other. These interests are informed by her experience as a dancer – taking class, rehearsing, and performing (most recently for the choreographers DD Dorvillier and Beth Gill). Persistent shuttling between dance practice and academic work – two worlds that she has been trying to bridge for as long as she can remember – has shown her that dance and critical theory inform each other in significant ways, revealing much about embodiment, subjectivity, and notions of identity.

M. NourbeSe Philips is an unembedded poet, essayist, novelist and playwright who lives in the space-time of the City of Toronto. She practiced law in the City of Toronto for seven years before becoming a poet and writer.

conceptually innovative, book-length poem Zong!, which explodes the legal archive as it relates to slavery. Among her awards are numerous Canada Council and Ontario Arts Council grants, as well as the Pushcart Prize (USA, 1981), the Casa de las Americas Prize (Cuba, 1988), the Lawrence Foundation Prize (USA, 1994), and the Arts Foundation of Toronto Writing and Publishing Award (Toronto,1995),  Dora Award finalist (1999). Her fellowships include Guggenheim (1990), McDowell (1991), and Rockefeller (Bellagio) (2005). She has been Writer-in-Residence at several universities.

A Roadmap to Long-Term Brain-Machine Interfaces Davis Auditorium Speaker: Jan Rabaey, Professor and Co-Director, Berkeley Wireless Research Center, University of California, Berkeley Abstract Acquiring deeper insights into the dynamic behavior of the brain requires imaging capabilities operating at multiple scales of resolution – from microns to the complete brain. Recent advances in microscopic sensing, ULP processing and communications lead to interfaces that may be able to observe thousands if not millions of active neurons in vivo, opening the door for viable long-term brain-machine interfaces that restore function for people with severe neural disabilities. In this presentation, we will present on our vision on how this can be accomplished, the current status, and what hurdles need to be overcome. Examples will include a description of BBMI (the Berkeley Brain-Machine Interface) and “neural dust”. Speaker Bio Jan RabaeyProf. Jan Rabaey is the founding director of the Berkeley Wireless Research Center and the Ubiquitous Swarm Lab. He has been on the forefront of many groundbreaking innovations in low-energy design, and is currently exploring the interaction between information technology and neuroscience.
