Join Philip Ording, Mathematics faculty, for "Patterns, Please: A Virtual Walkthrough of Wall Power!" at 7:00 PM Eastern Time. There are many ways to look at a quilt but what often attracts our eyes first is the balance of repetition and variation, symmetry and informality, pattern and contrast. This virtual gallery tour of "Wall Power! Spectacular Quilts" from the American Folk Art Museum will look at these features of quilt design from a geometric point of view. Join mathematician and author Philip Ording in an exploration of the structure of quilt patterns, from the simple to the complex. Philip has also been a geometry consultant to New York-based artists for nearly two decades. Wall Power! was on view at the Hudson River Museum in Yonkers, NY earlier this year. A zoom link will be sent to registrants within 24 hours of the event or email alum@sarahlawrence.edu.

Tuesday November 16
5:30 PM - 7:00 PM
A continuation of our SLC Faculty @ Home series, join Matthew H. Ellis, Christian A. Johnson Endeavor Foundation Chair in Middle Eastern Studies and International Affairs, for "Nations and Nationalism: Past and Present," a five-week mini-course beginning on Tuesday, November 16. Nationalism - and the organization of the globe into a patchwork of territorial nation-states, each with a unique social or cultural identity - is such a taken-for-granted feature of contemporary life that it is easy to forget that nations did not exist for most of human history. And yet, despite many predictions of nationalism's imminent demise - Albert Einstein quipped famously that it was an "infantile disease" that humanity would eventually outgrow - nationalism remains perhaps as powerful an ideological force as ever, in the United States as elsewhere. This course will examine a range of foundational questions about the emergence of nations and nationalism in world history: What is a nation, and how has national identity been cultivated, defined, and debated in different contexts? Why did nationalism emerge when it did? Who does nationalism benefit, and how do different social groups compete for control over national identity and ideology? The series will begin by offering an overview of the origins and spread of nationalism in the late-1700s and 1800s and conclude with some thoughts about the resurgence of nationalism in Great Britain and the United States in the 21st century. Along the way, we will consider a number of specific examples of nationalism from different regions around the world. Seminars will be held on the following Tuesdays at 5:30 PM Eastern Time: 11/16, 11/23, 11/30, 12/14, and on Wednesday, 12/8. Space is limited. Registration is for all five-seminars. Seminars cannot be signed up for individually.

Wednesday November 17
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Join Una Chung, Hyman H. Kleinman Fellowship in the Humanities, for "A Walking Meditation through Alexandria, Egypt" at 7:00 PM Eastern Time. This seminar is based on fieldwork Una undertook in Alexandria, Egypt in December 2019, with the support of a grant from Sarah Lawrence College. Following the instructions and maps provided by E.M. Forster in his travel book, Alexandria: A History and a Guide (1922), she attempted to retrace Forster’s eight walks in Alexandria as an exercise in postcolonial psychogeography, urban history, and literary fieldwork. The resulting travel essay interweaves stories about Forster’s life and love for Alexandria with her own observations of this famously cosmopolitan city as it appears in today’s world, and concludes with ruminations on the nature of travel, the loss of things to see, and the bardo of everyday life. In this seminar, Una will share excerpts of her essay and provide contextualization from her research on literature, travel, and Eastern philosophy. A zoom link will be sent to registrants within 24 hours of the event or email alum@sarahlawrence.edu.
