Cache   

Τον τρόπο να συνεχίσουν τις διακρατικές συναντήσεις στο πλαίσιο του ερευνητικού ευρωπαϊκού προγράμματος Erasmus για την «Εμφυλη ισότητα στην εκπαίδευση» χωρίς να υπάρχει ο φόβος του κορονοϊού, βρήκαν οι συμμετέχοντες στις δράσεις, ανάμεσα στους οποίους και το Παιδαγωγικό Τμήμα Προσχολικής Εκπαίδευσης του Πανεπιστημίου Θεσσαλίας. Οι συναντήσεις γίνονται πλέον με τηλεδιασκέψεις.
Αντικείμενο του ερευνητικού προγράμματος που έχει διάρκεια έως τον Αύγουστο του 2021 είναι η συστημική προσέγγιση ζητημάτων που αφορούν σε πολιτικές για την έμφυλη ισότητα στην εκπαίδευση. Οι εννέα συνολικά εταίροι που συμμετέχουν στην ανάπτυξη των δράσεων είναι Development Education Centre South Yorkshire (DECSY), Sheffield, UK, Sudwind Association For Development Policy and Global Justice, Vienna, Austria, OXFAM Italia, Florence, Italy, Forum zaSloboduOdgoja, Zagreb, Croatia, Peace Education Institute, Helsinki, Finland, University of Thessaly (UTH), Volos, Greece, Anthropolis Association, Budapest, Hungary, Center for Citizenship Education (CEO), Warsaw, Poland καιSlovenske Centrum pre Komunikaciu a Rozvoj, Bratislava, Slovakia.
Κύριος στόχος είναι η δημιουργία και διαμοίραση υλικού για τον αναστοχασμό και την μετατόπιση από στερεοτυπικές πρακτικές, προκαταλήψεις, αμηχανία αλλά και φόβο για την συζήτηση λεπτών ζητημάτων όπως αυτά εκδηλώνονται στο εκπαιδευτικό περιβάλλον όλων των βαθμίδων από την προσχολική στην πρωτοβάθμια και στην τριτοβάθμια εκπαίδευση τόσο στο πλαίσιο των μαθημάτων όσο και στην οργάνωση της μαθησιακής διαδικασίας γενικότερα.

Traditions and Technologies, Apr 4   

Cache   
Location
Morning Sessions and Lunch: 8 am-12:45 pm 470 Stephens Hall
Afternoon Session and Reception: 1-4 pm 10 Stephens Hall, Institute for South Asia Studies

Description:
This day-long symposium aims to create a space for scholars of traditional South Asian Medicines working across disciplines to forge connections and discuss priorities for research directions in the field. Here, we use the designation traditional South Asian Medicines, to refer to bodies of theory and practice, such as Siddha, Unani, Ayurveda, and Sowa Rigpa, understood by practitioners and communities as existing in complex relations to modern establishment medicine or biomedicine.

Our symposium aims to collectively address three broad questions:

1. Bearing in mind the multiple temporalities inherent the theorizations and practices of these medicines, and the enduring entanglements of claims to authority and authenticity, what do we prioritize as new directions for research in the study of traditional South Asian Medicines?

2. What are our ethics of orientation and collaboration? In other words, how do we work to create scholarly infrastructures of hospitality that both attend to the complexities of therapeutic encounters and enable new ways of thinking and acting?

3. Thinking critically about the relation between tradition and technologies—specifically but perhaps not only communicative technologies—how can we create spaces and forge connections for scholars and practitioners working across various disciplines internationally? In particular, given the disparities in access to resources between scholars in North America and Europe, and in South Asia, in what ways can we create mutually beneficial forums for discussion and foster collaborations for scholars of traditional South Asian Medicines?

Omar Khan | Paper Jewels, Sep 10   

Cache   
A presentation by distinguished scholar and San Francisco based historian, Omar Khan, on his new publication Paper Jewels: Postcards from the Raj, a visual tour of India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka through 500 vintage postcards (1892 to 1947).

About the Book
Postcards were the Instagram of their age. The world went from thousands to billions of image postcards exchanged in a handful of years; they were the beginning of the "picture-mad" age we live in today. They were the first color images of the world circulated on a mass stage, and are increasingly being seen by scholars as a unique window into the past, depicting things in contexts absent in other mediums like photography. Paper Jewels, the book and slide talk, are about how these images developed and took root in India, from the first India-themed postcards as early as 1892, through their role in the Independence struggle through 1947. It uncovers the earliest "Greetings from India" postcards in the late 1890s, such gems as the early postcards by the Indian artist M.V. Dhurandhar and The Ravi Varma Press, and some of the best artist-signed postcards of India by Western and India-based artists. We explore how Indians quickly made the medium their own, so that postcards are far more complex than merely a colonial or Orientalist tool; attention is also paid to the many technical, business, political and other factors that contributed to the 'Golden Age of Postcards' between 1895 and 1915. The book and talk are based almost entirely on primary research in archives and collections all over the world. The postcards shared are largely from the author's own collection which has taken some thirty years to amass.

Aishwary Kumar | Can the People Rule? Gandhi, Dignity, and Resentment, Nov 12   

Cache   
A talk by political theorist and intellectual historian of South Asia, empire, and the Global South, Professor Aishwary Kumar.

Abstract
Gandhi’s politics of satyagraha— passive resistance — was distinctively at odds with his times. In a world beset by fear and inequality, his critique of violence and humiliation remains compelling. Yet, Gandhi also privileged obedience, office, and sacrifice as routes to moral selfhood, and even to political freedom. In this lecture, we examine Gandhi's troubled relationship with human freedom and dignity, retracing his encounter with figures in revolutionary political thought — Marx, Arendt, and Ambedkar —as a lens to understand the degeneration of democracy in our time. Does Gandhi today give us, we ask, an insight into the ressentiment of the people against the very idea — democracy — that was once conceived to let them rule themselves?

Speaker Bio
Aishwary Kumar is an intellectual historian and political theorist with interests in South Asian, European, and American political thought. His work spans a wide spectrum of issues in moral and political philosophy, political justice and constitutional theory, war and ethics, empire and liberalism, and the history of democratic thought and rights.

Kumar’s first book, Radical Equality: Ambedkar, Gandhi, and the Risk of Democracy (Stanford University Press, 2015), was listed by The Indian Express as one of the fifteen most important works on politics, morality, and law to be published anywhere that year. His essays have appeared in Modern Intellectual History, Contemporary South Asia, Social History, and Public Culture, among other places. He has also been featured on the radio shows Entitled Opinions and Philosophy Talk.

Kumar is currently working on two books. The first, The Sovereign Void: Ambedkar’s Critique of Violence, examines the genealogies of political freedom and war in Southern and Atlantic political thought and their relation to notions of “force” across epistemological, theological, and secular traditions. The second, The Gravity of Truth: Disenchantment, Disappointment, and Democracy, takes the Obama Presidency as its starting point to explore the place of moral agency and political judgment in the global constitutional imagination.

Kumar is a senior fellow in Human Rights, Constitutional Politics, and Religious Diversity at the Lichtenberg Kolleg—Göttingen Institute of Advanced Study, Germany, and a visiting fellow at the Institute of Human Sciences (IWM) in Vienna, Austria. He has previously held fellowships in Europe and the United Kingdom. He earned his doctorate in History at Trinity College, University of Cambridge in 2007.

It was Russia, not Saudi Arabia, that pulled out of OPEC+ deal: Saudi ministers   

Cache   
Sat, 2020-04-04 03:02

RIYADH: Saudi Arabia's foreign and energy ministers on Saturday denied Russia's claim that the Kingdom abandoned the OPEC+ deal, leading to a collapse in world oil prices.

In a statement carried by the Saudi Press Agency (SPA), Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan said "a statement attributed to one of the media of President Vladimir Putin of the Russian Federation claimed that one of the reasons for the decline in oil prices was the Kingdom's withdrawal from the deal of OPEC + and that the Kingdom was planning to get rid of shale oil producers."

"The minister affirmed that what was mentioned is fully devoid of truth and that the withdrawal of the Kingdom from the agreement is not correct," the statement said.

In fact Saudi Arabia and 22 other countries tried to persuade Russia to make further cuts and extend the deal, but Russia did not agree, it said.

Prince Farhan expressed surprise that Russia had to resort to "falsifying facts" when Saudi Arabia's stance on shale oil production is known, the statement said.

He pointed out that Saudi Arabia is one of the main investors in the energy sector in United States, implying that there is no reason for the Kingdom "to get rid of shale oil producers" as Russia has claimed.

He further said the Kingdom "is also seeking to reach more cuts and achieve oil market equilibrium for the interest of shale oil producers."

OPEC+ refers to the cooperation between members of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and non-OPEC oil producers. The cooperation deal which called for cuts in production by the producers was meant to stabilize oil prices. 

In a separate statement, Saudi Energy Minister Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman rejected Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak’s similar claim that the Kingdom refused to extend the OPEC+ deal and withdrew from it.

Novak "was the first to declare to the media that all the participating countries are absolved of their commitments starting from the first of April," Prince Abdulaziz said in a statement.

He said Novak's statement led other countries to decide "to raise their production to offset the lower prices and compensate for their loss of returns." 

On Thursday, Saudi Arabia called for an urgent meeting of oil exporters after US President Donald Trump said he expected the Kingdom and Russia to cut production by 10-15 million barrels per day.

Prince Farhan said he was "hoping that Russia would take the right decisions in the urgent meeting" so that a "fair agreement that restores the desired balance of oil markets" could be achieved.

The global oil market has crashed, with prices falling to $34 a barrel from $65 at the beginning of the year, as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. 

Fuel demand has dropped by roughly a third, or 30 million barrels per day, as billions of people worldwide restrict their movements.

A global deal to reduce production by as much as 10 million to 15 million barrels per day would require participation from nations that do not exert state control over output, including the United States, now the world’s largest producer of crude.

A meeting of OPEC and allies such as Russia has been scheduled for April 6, but details were thin on the exact distribution of production cuts. No time has yet been set for the meeting, OPEC sources said.

Opera   

Cache   

Venice, the cradle of melodrama, is hosting an  exhibition dedicated to the wonderful musical art of opera. The exhibition presents the history of opera through four centuries, from its origins in Italy, particularly Venice, to the present day, becoming itself a stage for artworks, costumes, librettos, sets, musical instruments and scores, and a wealth of objects from around the world, that together create a theatrical and experiential scenario for the public.

The exhibition traverses the history of memorable premières, revisiting the cultural context in which the  performers lived, worked, created and loved. Through an immersive experience in the process of creating an opera: from lyrics to singing, and from music to theatre, visitors will leave with a clearer understanding of the role of opera in the contemporary world. The most important interpretations of lyrical works are transmitted through a system of earphones, with the music changing dynamically for each section of the exhibition, creating an evocative and totally enveloping sound system.

The exhibition is divided into sections representing different cities, each associated with one or more musicians and compositions.

It opens in the Venice section, where the exhibits, some never shown before, tell the story of the composers and librettists who invented melodrama here in Venice and its theatres, particularly at La Fenice. From Claudio Monteverdi in the 1640s, to Antonio Vivaldi, Gioachino Rossini, and finally Giuseppe Verdi, who composed for La Fenice a triumphal series of five lyrical dramas: Ernani, Attila, Rigoletto, La Traviata and Simon Boccanegra.

This is followed by the London section, with the works of Friedrich Händel, who settled there in the 1710s, and by the first performance of Rinaldo, inspired by Torquato Tasso’s Gerusalemme liberata.

Three hundred or so extraordinary objects will be on display, together with films and audio reproductions. Unlike the exhibition’s previous manifestations, in Venice a substantial number of important loans develop themes specifically connected to the world of Italian music. The sections dedicated to the cities of Venice and Milan are particularly enhanced by primary sources, such as the score of Gioachino Rossini’s Semiramide, together with paintings and sketches that illustrate the role of Italian composers in the development and popularisation of melodrama.

Curated by Kate Bailey of the Victoria and Albert Museum, and inaugurated in London in 2017 under the title Opera. Power, Passion and Politics, the exhibition’s fourth stop here in Venice can boast an installation by world-renowned architect and scenographer Pier Luigi Pizzi.

The Vienna section centres on the figure of Mozart, whose Marriage of Figaro showed him to be well and truly a member of the cultural revolution introduced by Enlightenment thought. The exhibition’s fourth section takes us to Paris, where music, painting, dance, literature, politics, fashion and poetry came

together in the theatre. With his tendency towards total art, Richard Wagner introduced this vital concentration into opera. At the beginning of the 20th century Dresden led the new vision of art and society, staged by Richard Strauss in his Salome, wild and crazy like Klimt’s Judith, also on show in the exhibition.

In Russia during the Soviet regime art was obliged to embody the values of Marxism, and so in the penultimate section dedicated to Leningrad, Shostakovich interprets Soviet dramaturgy by composing Lady Macbeth of the Mtsensk District, without forgetting the principles of love and death that distinguish the human story in any age.
