Svetlana Kana Radević: Aggregate Assemblies, 2023 Womxn in Design and Architecture Conference

Betts Auditorium

Register here. Svetlana Kana Radević’s architecture is a radical act of mediation. Rising to prominence in post-war Yugoslavia, her buildings speak on all scales, engaging geo-political and social complexities. Drawing from knowledge of materiality and vernacular traditions within her native Montenegro (formerly Yugoslavia), her work filters modernism’s globalized forces through an intimate, place-based lens. Radević’s […]

Acting managing editor of National Public Radio Pallavi Gogoi […]

Sovereignties of the Imagination: Worlding from the Ethnographic Museum

010 East Pyne Princeton

ABSTRACT: This presentation takes up some of the more recent academic explorations of the concept of “worlding” to think about possible futures of the so-called ethnographic or world cultures museum. For more than three decades now, ethnographic museums – at least those in Europe – have received sustained critique. In its most recent iteration, this […]

In Pursuit of Companionship: Hansen’s Disease in the Jōdo Shinshū Moral Imagination

202 Jones Hall

This talk takes examples of Abū al-ʿAlāʾ al-Maʿarrī’s (363–449/973–1057) use of animal imagery—doves, crows, camels—to conduct an exploration of the themes of mourning, longing, and of poetry itself in his first diwan, Saqṭ al-Zand (First Sparks of the Tinder). It seeks to explore the interplay of onomatopoeia, etymology, and myth in the creative process whereby […]
