  • Head over to room 1201 of the International Affairs Building on Monday from 6:30-8:00 pm for a talk with the founder and design director of Alamwar Textiles, Viji Reddy. Reddy will discuss “exotic gypsy stereotypes in the fashion industry” and, more broadly, her goals of empowering marginalized people through fashion.
  • On Tuesday from 6:00-8:00 pm, there will be a talk with Tobias Brinkmann about the history of Jewish migration. Brinkmann will discuss books published in 1948 by Jewish émigré scholars in the context of migration. The event is titled: “Wandering Jews or Jewish Migrants? The Scholarship about Jewish Migrations and the Origins of Migration Studies” and will take place in Sulzberger Parlor on the 3rd floor of Barnard Hall.
  • Also on Tuesday, there will be a talk with authors Marianne Hirsch and Leo Spitzer about their recent book, School Photos in Liquid Time. The book contains photos of schoolchildren in a variety of settings, from children in Nazi Ghettos to Japanese American students being held captive in camps. The authors will discuss how “school photographs reveal connections between the histories of persecuted subjects in different national and imperial centers.” The event will take place at 6:15 pm in The Heyman Center Second Floor Common Room.
  • On Thursday, there will be another event from 6:00-8:00 pm in Sulzberger Parlor titled: “The Cold War Origins of Human Rights in the Americas.” The talk will discuss the declarations made in the Organization of American States (OAS) on human rights in 1948 as well as the Inter-American Human Rights Commission (IAHRC) and the exclusion of Cuba from the OAS in 1962.
