Lecture: “Abstracts of Intimacy” by Darby English

Initiative on Race, Gender and Globalization presents a lecture by Darcy English, Associate Professor of Art History, University of Chicago.  'Abstracts of Intimacy,' through a focus on a pair of exhibitions staged in New York and Houston in 1971, considers the experimental, multiracial sociality in which many abstract art practices thrived in the late-sixties and early-seventies U.S. The talk's principal questions concern the implications that this moment may have for our histories of late modernist aesthetics and black cultural politics—two formations that were never so foreign to their own supposed alterity as at this critical, though largely unrepresented—and, more broadly, for our conceptualization and occupation of the terrain those histories share.

Spring Break Opportunity

Susan Olson is recruiting YDS students to accompany with her March 18-22 to a camp opportunity for children that live on ventilators and their families. It is the most memorable volunteer experience that I have ever, ever had.  The camp is located near Orlando, and you would be responsible for your own airfare but no expenses while you are there.  If you might be interested in this opportunity, please let me know, and I'll see if we have enough to register as a group. Volunteers need to be healthy enough to keep up with long days, and committed to work hard, play hard, and find a way to make camp safe and fun for even the most fragile children. Volunteers also have to have a clean criminal record. This is not a religiously affiliated camp. For more information about the camp, check out  Contact:


Jeffrey Stout of Princeton to deliver Bartlett Lecture on militarism

Jeffrey Stout, professor of religion at Princeton University, will deliver the 2008 Bartlett Lecture at Yale Divinity School on the subject It's a Boy: How Militarism Has Corrupted the Republic.  The lecture by the previous president of the AAR will define militarism and explain how it has deflected Americans from the project of achieving and maintaining a democratic republic. It will focus on how the ends and means of militarism violate justice, corrupt the public's commitment to justice, and undermine practices      of accountability in American political life.

October 28 (5:15PM)

Niebuhr Hall, followed by a reception in the Sarah Smith Gallery.

Interested in Learning Catalan?

I'm currently proposing an Elementary Spanish Catalan Class. In order to strengthen my proposal, I'm searching for connections with other Departments or fields of research that may benefit from the opportunity of Catalan language being offered here at Yale. I'm wondering if you're aware of other students or faculty ... who may be interested in supporting a Catalan language class, or that a course of this nature could be of their interest, even possible auditors.  Contact:


Interested in French Table?

Do you know French (or did you used to)?  Are you in desperate need of an occasional tete a tete over a nice baguette?  Welcome to the Div School's French conversation club.  Everyone who wants to bavarder is encouraged to attend, beginners included; we'd especially love to have native speakers grace us with their francophone presence.  Current times available include Tuesdays and Thursdays at lunch (12:30-1:20ish).  Email us if you're interested in participating and we'll pick a day.  A bientot, Kat et Marissa,
