  1. 1Wendy Kline – Psychedelic Birth: The Countercultural Politics of Pain | Backdoor Broadcasting Company

    Event Date: 24 – 25 March 2017

    Room G15 and G16

    Birkbeck Main Building

    Birkbeck, University of London

    Torrington Square

    London WC1E 7HX

    The Birkbeck Institute for the Humanities in association with the Birkbeck Trauma Project presents:

    Gender and Pain in Modern History

    In 2012, The Journal of Pain published a definitive study about the relationship between gender and pain, showing that for the vast majority of ailments, women reported significantly higher levels of pain (approximately twenty per cent higher) than men. In a variety of historical contexts, the female body has been associated with heightened sensitivity of various types. These images were borne out by cultural representations of female delicacy. However, female bodies have also been singled out for their ability to bear heightened pain, especially during childbirth. Representations of male stoicism (or perceived lack thereof) in the face of pain have also been a powerful image in many contexts. Women and men have long been thought to experience bodily sensations including discomfort and pain in a variety of culturally and historically specific ways: pain has routinely been gendered.

    This two-day conference focuses on the historical relationship(s) between gender and pain between the early modern period and the present day. It aims to foster discussion among experts working on women’s history, the history of masculinity, and the history of gender; the history of science, health, and medicine; and the history of the body, with perspectives from a variety of national contexts and disciplinary backgrounds.

    Image and Accident in Kafka’s Novels

    3 Masterclasses with Howard Caygill

    Professor Howard Caygill (Kingston) – Image and Accident in Kafka’s Novels

    Session three: Saints and Soldiers: The Old and the New Religion in The Castle

    In the Yearbook of the Workers Accident Insurance Institute for 1914 Kafka published the results of an illegal photo-surveillance campaign of hazardous quarries in Northern Bohemia. ‘Accident Prevention in Quarries’ was contemporary with The Trial and the final chapter of America (Missing Person) and shares with them a fascination with the violent image and the accident. The Masterclass will reflect on the crossings between Kafka’s accident insurance writings and his three novels, beginning with the narrative of racial violence and extermination in America (Missing Person), moving afterwards to the pornography of violence in The Trial and concluding with the images surviving at the fringes of an aniconic violence in The Castle.

    The Pears Institute for the Study of Antisemitism presents:

    Professor Shaul Bassi (Ca’Foscari University, Venice) – The Ghetto Of Venice: Past, Present, Future

    The word ghetto was coined in Venice in 1516, it was later applied to other Jewish areas in Italy and Western Europe. By the second half of the twentieth-century ghetto became synonymous with ethnic segregation especially in the United States. This lecture looks at the history of the Ghetto of Venice and discusses the present challenges and future prospects of an iconic Jewish heritage site that has just celebrated 500 years of continuous existence and embodies the predicament of a city threatened increasingly by a “tourist monoculture”.

    Shaul Bassi is associate professor of English at Ca’Foscari University of Venice. His research interests include Shakespeare and Jewish studies. He is co-founder and Italian president of Beit Venezia – A Home for Jewish Culture, and he coordinated the Committee for the 500th anniversary of the Ghetto of Venice (1516-2016). His recent publications include Shakespeare in Venice. Exploring the City with Shylock and Othello (with Alberto Toso Fei, Elzeviro 2007, new ed. 2016) and Shakespeare’s Italy and Italy’s Shakespeare. Place, ‘Race’ and Politics (Palgrave Macmillan, 2016).

  6. Past Shows

    Tributes (2/18/17)

     

    Recently, the jazz world lost two beloved figures: Barbara Carroll and Al Jarreau. John and Jessica pay tribute to them by playing their records and replaying a song that Barbara performed live on Radio Deluxe several years ago. This week also marks the second anniversary of the passing of another of John and Jessica’s favorites: jazz great Clark Terry. That prompted John to tell stories about working with the famous trumpeter and to play some of his favorite recordings of him.

  7. 3Peter Hallward – Mass Sovereignty and the Eclipse of Representation | Backdoor Broadcasting Company

    The Centre for Research in Modern European Philosophy (CRMEP) presents:

    Professor Peter Hallward (Kingston) – Mass Sovereignty and the Eclipse of Representation

    For most of Europe’s history, oligarchy and democracy were taken to be antithetical forms of government. Competition between the rule of a privileged few and the rule of all or of many was generally understood to be a zero sum game; the many could usurp the few, or vice versa, but they could not both rule at once. Late eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century recourse to the logic of representation, in response to the revolutions in the Americas and France allowed an oligarchic configuration of society to be recast, eventually, in pseudo-‘democratic’ form. French revolutionary political practice in particular soon came to divide the advocates of orderly forms of representative government, on the one hand, from the partisans of mass sovereignty and direct popular empowerment, on the other. This talk will argue that much the same alternative persists to this day.

  10. 4Edmund de Waal – On the Eve of Departure: Art and Exile | Backdoor Broadcasting Company

    ‘On personal recommendation, I used Backdoor Broadcasting to record a podcast of the conference on the city of Granada I organized recently in Cambridge and I am absolutely delighted with the result.

    The recording was carried out to the highest standard, discreetly and efficiently. The podcast was up and available upon my departmental website within hours, and it looks terrific. I was particularly pleased that the Powerpoint slides used by the speakers can also be viewed via the podcast.

    Backdoor Broadcasting is excellent value for money, and provides a unique service in allowing cutting-edge research to be widely available online for the duration, and I would recommend it enthusiastically.’
