Book History Colloquium Lecture | The Book Covers Designs of Philip Grushkin

Paul Shaw, graphic design historian The Book Jackets of Philip Grushkin: A Look at the Design Process in the Pre-Digital Era From the early 1940s through the late 1950s Philip Grushkin was one of the leading freelance book jacket designers in New York, working for a wide range of publishers.

He worked on jackets for a number of well-known authors, among them Simone de Beauvoir, Arthur Koestler, Truman Capote, Junichiro Tanizaki, Jean Stafford and Chester Himes. A student of George Salter at The Cooper Union, Grushkin’s jackets, often reflect his mentor’s approach, yet have their own distinctive style. The Philip Grushkin Archives at Columbia University contain a large number of these jackets. But more importantly, they are especially valuable for the presence of mechanicals, roughs and comps alongside printed jackets. In combination, these materials provide a vivid look at how Grushkin designed his bookjackets. His process and methods were not unique and thus they illuminate graphic design in the age before personal computers.

Paul Shaw is a lettering artist and graphic design historian. He teaches typography and calligraphy at Parsons School of Design and the history of graphic design at the School of Visual Arts. In 1980 he organized the George Salter Archives at the Newberry Library and recently he wrote the text of the catalogue for the Philip Grushkin Archives. Along with writing, teaching and designing Paul is the editor of Codex: The Journal of Letterforms.

An internship is often the first real career experience for many students and recent grads, and can lead to great opportunities for those who do well. But if you don’t do well, it can close doors instead of opening them!

Join us for an evening of fun and frank talk while we share the secrets to success as an intern or new employee. Special Guest David Snider, COO of UrbanCompass, will share the secrets to success in elite banking, consulting and technology startup firms. Before the age of 30, David successfully carved a path through Bain & Co., Bain Capital and Harvard Business School to his current position on the management team of a company valued at over $200 million dollars.

 

We’ll answer:
- What it takes to get hired as an intern at an elite company.
- How to design a personal brand that gets you noticed.
- What key skills you need to bring to the table to be “career-ready”.
- How to succeed as an intern or new employee.
- How to leverage a successful internship experience into a great career.


Join us at 6:00 PM for beer, wine, appetizers, and pizza. We’ll start the official conversation at 6:45.

: Refugees from states devastated by civil war and terrorism pose a challenge to the international community, which creates 'humanitarian' practices to contain and monitor refugees in order to deliver charity while reducing the risks refugees are perceived as posing to the international order and to individual nation-states. Somali refugees are caught in a set of risk-management practices, which incarcerate some in refugee c! amps and define others - those resettled in the US - as potential security threats to their new communities. The paper explores the hostility contained within charity, both in refugee camps and in host communities for resettled refugees, offering a particular focus on the experiences of Somali refugees in Lewiston, Maine.

Catherine Besteman, Francis F. Bartlett and Ruth K. Bartlett Professor of Anthropology at Colby College, will give the talk. Daniel Goldstein, Professor of Anthropology at Rutgers University, will be the respondent.

The history of domestic-worker organizing illustrates how they have mobilized to transform their working lives and, in the process, have built a movement with a distinctive approach to labor organizing. In this conversation, historians Elizabeth Hutchison (University of New Mexico) and Premilla Nadasen (Barnard College) explore the contours of this history in the United States and Chile, analyzing
the changing labor relations 
of domestic service over the course of the 20th century, and linking questions about domestic workers’ employment, migration, family life, and political activity to broader class, political, and ethnic relations. This event is co- sponsored by the Barnard Forum on Migration. For more information, visit bcrw.barnard.edu/event/historical-perspectives-on-domestic-worker-organizing or call 212.854.2067.

In the 1950s, Columbia University urologists convinced over 1400 homeless, alcoholic men to undergo a series of invasive tests for prostate cancer. If cancer was detected, the men underwent radical prostatectomy, castration, and estrogen therapy. These practices were not just an ethical travesty.  They also have many continuities with our current screening and radical treatment paradigm in prostate cancer.  This presentation will examine this case in light of our understanding of the safety and efficacy of mass ! interventions in American medicine and society.

Opening Symposium with Samuel Moyn, Thomas Keenan, Ariella Azoulay, Mark Mazower, Felicity Scott, Elazar Barkan, and Yasmine Ergas

The Visualizing Universalism symposium marks the opening of a new exhibition at Columbia University’s Buell Hall (through May 19) publicly displaying the original 1949 UNESCO Human Rights Exhibition and its archive for the first time in 60 years. This exhibition was the first  international event that sought to visually represent the history and meaning of the then-recently adopted Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Using the exhibition as a platform for critical debate on contemporary human rights culture, the symposium explores insights provided by UNESCO’s first attempt to visualize and historicize the UDHR. In three sessions we will discuss the exhibition’s historical context, its teleological narrative, and the ways in which human rights are represented and disseminated through visual culture – questions pertinent to both the exhibition and to contemporary discussions of human rights. 

Symposium co-sponsored by the Institute for the Study of Human Rights, Columbia Maison Française, Center for Human Rights Documentation and Research, and Heyman Center for the Humanities.
