  2. 22. Post-Colonial Criticism

    Introduction to Theory of Literature (ENGL 300)

    In this lecture on post-colonial theory, Professor Paul Fry explores the work of Edward Said and Homi K. Bhabha. The complicated origins, definitions, and limitations of the term "post-colonial" are outlined. Elaine Showalter’s theory of the phasic development of female literary identity is applied to the expression of post-colonial identities. Crucial terms such as ambivalence, hybridity, and double consciousness are explained. The relationship between Bhabha’s concept of sly civility and Gates’s "signifyin’" is discussed, along with the reliance of both on semiotics.

  3. (HD) Alvin Lucier: Nothing is Real for piano, amplified teapot, recorder, & mini-sound system

    http://kriskerzman.tumblr.com/post/5768974873/last-night-i-discovered-the-minimalist-composer

    HD version

    I am playing this ethereal and subtle work on my 2010-2011 recitals. I filmed my last performance in October, however, the technical challenges of playing and recording in addition to getting the amplification right were too great. So I restaged a recording in the chapel at Loyola High School, Los Angeles, where I teach.

    A few words of unsolicited advice for others wanting to play this piece:

    I spent quite a bit of time experimenting with different speaker/teapot combinations to find a pair that best expressed the harmonics. As a general rule, I found that the rounder teapots worked best, but they tend to have small lids, making it difficult to get the speaker inside.

    I used Blu-Tak to affix the speaker to the bottom of the pot. For this particular pot, the spout was too small to get the plug through, as well. So I had to cut the wire, thread the line through the teapot, then reattach it to another line.

    I have tried several different mics to amplify the pot, too. Generally, small diaphragm condensers work best. I had many problems, however, with feedback. For this video, I used a Shure SM58 directly into a powered JBL speaker. The very good off axis rejection of this mic elim…

  4. Episode #46: The Great Un-Equalizer? | The Lines Between Us

    Minority access to colleges and universities is growing. But according to a report released a few weeks ago by the Georgetown Public Policy Institute, that trend masks a growing form of inequality in higher education. The American postsecondary system, the report says, “is a dual system of racially separate and unequal institutions."

    The report found that since 1995, eight out of ten white enrollments have been at what they call selective colleges and universities, about seven out of ten black and Hispanic enrollments were at two- and four-year so-called “open access” schools.

    Today, we check in with report co-author Anthony Carnevale, as well as three people involved in higher education in our region. Tracey Durant is part of the Associated Black Charities advisory committee for higher education public policy. (Disclosure—ABC is one of this series’ many funders.) John Banks is an adjunct instructor and academic advisor at the Community College of Baltimore County. Joe Fisher is founder of First Generation College Bound.

    Here’s a link to the Georgetown report, Separate and Unequal: How Higher Education Reinforces the Intergenerational Reproduction of White Racial Privilege…

  5. Political correctness: a force for good? A Munk Debate

    The resolution? "What you call political correctness, I call progress…"

    On May 18th, the redoubtable Stephen Fry (self-admitted soft leftie) and I debated the duo of academic, author and radio host Michael Eric Dyson (https://bit.ly/2IzKSZz) and blogger/author Michelle Goldberg (https://bit.ly/2wVOTBZ). A press release describing the debate can be found here: https://bit.ly/2IUnG7j

    Courtesy of the Munk Debates: https://www.munkdebates.com/The-Debates/Political-Correctness

    64% of the audience prior to the debate disagreed with the idea that political correctness was a force for good, while 36% disagreed. 87% said they were willing to change their mind. By the end of the evening, the split was 70/30.

  6. Phillip Lopate and Kiese Laymon In Conversation: Notes of a Native Son

    OFFICE OF COMMUNITY OUTREACH AND EDUCATION | CONVERSATION

    Phillip Lopate and Kiese Laymon In Conversation: Notes of a Native Son

    Published in 1955, James Baldwin’s uncompromising debut collection of essays Notes of a Native Son announced him as a major force in the genre of the American essay. The volume remains a resonant analysis of subjects at once literary and political. Tackling issues as varied as the “dishonest” sentimentality of Harriet Beecher Stowe and the protest fiction of Richard Wright, to colonialism, the relationship between Africans and African Americans, as well as the earnest “good intentions” of white liberals, this inaugural collection of essays retains its marker as a clear sign of James Baldwin’s prophetic witness. Join celebrated essayist and Columbia University School of the Arts Professor, Phillip Lopate, and novelist, essayist, and Vassar College Professor, Kiese Laymon, as they discuss the enduring significance of Notes and Baldwin’s exceptional career as a nonfiction writer.

    The evening begins with an introduction by Imani Perry, Professor, Center for African American Studies, Princeton University.

  7. Michael Roth on Why Liberal Education Matters

    By JONATHAN JUDAKEN & JUSTIN WILLINGHAM • OCT 16, 2014

    Michael Roth, president of Wesleyan University, makes his case for what he terms "pragmatic liberal learning," and why a liberal university education matters today in America.

    Host Jonathan Judaken talks with Wesleyan University President Michael Roth, author of the recent book Beyond the University: Why Liberal Education Matters. They discuss the relevance of a liberal education in an America where a liberal education, according to Roth, helps prepare individuals not just for college and their first job, but also encourages inquiry and formation of lifelong beliefs and understandings.

    Roth will be giving a free public lecture October 23, 2014 at Rhodes College.
