Faculty @ Home: Let the Pictures Speak - The Birth of Modern Europe (1572 to 1648) in European Art. A continuation of our SLC Faculty @ Home series, this mini-course will be led by Joseph Forte, Faculty Emeritus, Art History. Using great works of art from the period, we will trace the first steps toward modern Europe and the political and cultural entity it is today. We begin with the origins of the struggle from the Famines of the “Little” Ice Age and the Devastating Wars of Religion between Protestant and Catholic factions in the 16th century to the Dutch rebellion against Spain and finally the Thirty Years War, culminating in the Peace of 1648 that assured the right of small states to exist and religious peace to be established without outside interference. These momentous events dominated the arts of the times from pictorial glorifications or condemnations of massacres to depictions of solemn social rituals and finally Bacchic revels to celebrate the “Peace to end all Wars.” Readings will be posted, but most importantly each lecture will start with a comparison of two images to set the stage for our discussions and help make this the dialogue the subject invites. Seminars will be held on the following Tuesdays at 5:30 PM Eastern Time: 2/7, 2/14, 2/21, 2/28 and 3/7. Space is limited. Registration is for all five-seminars. Seminars cannot be signed up for individually.

Thursday February 9
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Join historian Brett Gary for a discussion with Matthew Ellis, History faculty, on censorship battles in American culture. They will consider the censorship strategies and spectacles that continue to rattle the nation’s legislatures, schools, and libraries -- over art, literature, history, reproductive rights, and queer bodily autonomy - followed by a discussion with the audience. Brett Gary is the author of, Dirty Works: Obscenity on Trial in America’s First Sexual Revolution, an award-winning study of key legal battles over literary and sexual censorship from the late 19th through the mid-20th century. His work examines the transformation of the nation’s obscenity laws through the legal travails of pioneering and controversial sex researchers and educators, birth control activists, and literary modernists, paving the way for the sexual revolutions and culture war conflicts to follow. This event will be held on Sarah Lawrence's campus and is open to the public to attend virtually or in person.

1:45 PM - 3:00 PM
Scottish writer and activist Sara Sheridan has suggested that "without archives many stories of real people would be lost, and along with those stories, vital clues that allow us to reflect and interpret our lives today." More than a repository of dusty documents for historians to sift through, archives can serve as a vital bridge between our collective past, present, and future. But what is an archive? How are archives made and maintained? What, and who, are they for? What is their function in our knowledge economy, and how do different people, professions, and social groups make use of them? As we lurch rapidly towards a hyper-digital future, what will happen to physical archives and the bountiful treasures from the past that they contain? What does the brave new world of the "digital archive" herald for us? This panel will explore the notion of the archive from various vantage points. Panelists include: Matthew Ellis, History faculty; Margarita Fajardo, History faculty; Roy Ben-Shai, Philosophy faculty; Sophie Barbasch, Visual and Studio Arts faculty; and Christina Kasman, College Archivist. This event will be held on Sarah Lawrence's campus and is open to the public to attend.
