Cultural Events

1. May 2-18, 2014, various times: Cardinal’s Production of The Letters Ivy Tech John Waldron Arts Center Rose Firebay

A RIVETING NEW AMERICAN DRAMA

D Meet Anna, a diligent bureaucrat whose task is to “edit” (i.e. censor) the explicit personal letters of Russia’s most esteemed composer. This morning she’s been summoned to the Director’s office. She doesn’t know why, but in a system where every utterance is a potential trap and “everyone has something to lose,” she is on her guard.





d The determined Director and the wary Anna soon find themselves locked in a cat-andmouse battle of wits that is nothing less than a fight for survival.

d Set in Joseph Stalin’s Russia, this engrossing new American play was inspired both by Stalin’s real-life efforts to remove any hint of “aberrant” sexual behavior by Russia’s most famous composer from the history books and the idea that government intrusion in the private lives of citizens threatens everybody’s most basic freedoms.

3. May 9, 2014, Conference: Romantic Subversions of Soviet Enlightenment: Questioning Socialism’s Reason Princeton University

PRINCETON CONJUNCTION - 2014. AN ANNUAL INTERDISCIPLINARY CONFERENCE

http://sotsromantizm.princeton.edu/ While many recent studies of late socialism are structured around metaphors of absence and detachment, we want to shift attention to concepts, institutions, spaces, objects, and identities that enabled (rather than prevented) individual and collective involvement with socialism. Sotsromantizm offers a ground from which to challenge the emerging dogma that depicts late Soviet society as a space where pragmatic cynics coexisted with useful idiots of the regime. The romantic sensibility sought to discover new spaces for alternative forms of affective attachment and social experience; it also helped to curtail the self-defeating practices of disengagement and indifference. The conference aims at analyzing the double nature of sotsromantizm, understood both as a critique of the Soviet Enlightenment and as an alternative form of Soviet socialism.

«Jus Post Bellum GARY J. BASS The just war tradition usually revolves around two crucial points: the justness of a war, and the justness of the way that war is fought. These two points—jus ad bellum and jus in bello, respectively—define the debate over whether a war is moral. Much less has been said about what happens after a war. But the aftermath of war is crucial to the justice of the war itself. Political leaders often invoke postwar developments like bringing democracy or stability as...»
