Senior Loeb Scholar Lecture: Bruno Latour, “A Tale of Seven Planets – An Exercise in Gaiapolitics”
Until recently the expression ‘we don't live in the same planet' was a metaphorical way of expressing no more than a disagreement. Today it has taken a literal meaning that the lecture will pursue in trying to map contrasted definitions of what used to be called “the natural world”. Bruno Latour is now emeritus professor associated with the médialab and the program in political arts (SPEAP) of Sciences Po Paris. Since January 2018 he is for two years fellow at the Zentrum fur Media Kunst (ZKM) and professor at the HfG both in Karlsruhe. Member of several academies and recipient of six honorary doctorate, he is the recipient in 2013 of the Holberg Prize. He has written and edited more than twenty books and published more than one hundred and fifty articles. You can find more informations on his website (http://www.bruno-latour.fr/).

Capital in the Twenty-First Century
The French economist Thomas Piketty (Paris School of Economics) discussed his new book, Capital in the Twenty-First Century at the Graduate Center. In this landmark work, Piketty argues that the main driver of inequality—the tendency of returns on capital to exceed the rate of economic growth—threatens to generate extreme inequalities that stir discontent and undermine democratic values. He calls for political action and policy intervention. Joseph Stiglitz (Columbia University), Paul Krugman (Princeton University), and Steven Durlauf (University of Wisconsin--Madison) participated in a panel moderated by LIS Senior Scholar Branko Milanovic. The event was introduced by LIS Director Janet Gornick, professor of political science and sociology at the Graduate Center. Cosponsored by the Luxembourg Income Study Center and the Advanced Research Collaborative.

Kees Christiaanse, “Inversion and Subtraction in Urban Design”
The European city is a nucleus in a network of approximately 500 cities with an average population of 50.000-1.000.000 inhabitants and an average distance of 100 km. In-between, there is a cultural landscape which has many qualities despite its dense population. This cultural landscape is pervaded by efficient transport infrastructures. Despite some deficits, this centuries-old constellation has a high quality of life and urbanity compared to most other urban areas on earth. Above all, it is important to optimize this constellation and not just focus on individual compact cities. Today, we are commonly taught that at least 50% of the world's population is living in cities. However, it is forgotten that half of these 50% are likely to live in urbanized landscapes. Also, the majority of the European cities’ population lives on the outskirts of the city and not in the center. The urbanized landscape, for example the entire ‘Rhine banana’, is interesting because it contains a high density of population, urban facilities, industry and logistics, as well as a large proportion of agricultural land: a ‘productive' landscape. This landscape cannot be designed, but only steered. The steering mechanisms consist rather of ‘braking factors’ that protect against over-urbanization than of propulsive building projects.

From Oxus to Euphrates: Sasanian Empire Symposium
Several experts participated in an all-day symposium on the legacy of the ancient Persian Sasanian empire (224-651 A.D.). The Sasanians ruled a large empire in Central and Western Asia, stretching from the Oxus River to the Euphrates and from the Hindukush to Eastern Arabia, for over 400 years (224-651 B.C.). Known as Iranshahr (the Domain of Iran), it was a powerful empire that engendered much of what came to be known as the Iranian culture in the medieval and modern periods.

Doctoral Program Conference: #decoding, Session 1, Unsettling
3/11/16 Power inscribes order on space through codes. Bureaucratic codes measure and normalize dynamic ecologies and constitute the substrate of any infrastructural system, organization, and praxis. They striate space and punctuate time to increase efficiency, maximize profit, reduce risk, and maintain order in cultural, social, economic, and political spheres. #decoding gauges the agency of spatial practices in relation to the challenges and capacities prompted by codes and protocols. Organized by students in the Doctor of Design Studies program, this conference investigates the impact of codes, concerned with mapping of environments, demarcation of legal territories, operational protocols of logistics and risk management, and codes of building and subtraction. By exposing the spatial and socio-cultural implications of micro-politics embedded in the hidden codes and protocols, we speculate about the potential agency of design practices mediating between processes of normalization, and the live, complex, and unpredictable ecologies of human habitation.

April 6, 2017 Cyril O'Regan, the Huisking Professor of Theology at the University of Notre Dame, gives a talk at the College of the Holy Cross on "The Gift of Modernity." First, he categorizes responses to modernity as a "gift" as "cheerers," those who accept modernity as a gift; "weepers," those who reject modernity; and "shadow seers," those who see the gift of modernity with ambiguity and doubleness. He offers philosophical and theological justifications for each view. His talk is one of the Deitchman Family Lectures for Religion and Modernity.

Dan Kaplan: Urban Alchemies: Repair and Transformation
2018 L. Michael Goldsmith Lecture featuring Dan Kaplan "How to build in the city? That's what this talk is about," said Dan Kaplan (B.Arch. '84), who gave the annual L. Michael Goldsmith lecture at AAP NYC in April. Kaplan is a senior partner at FXCollaborative, a leading green building design firm with offices in New York City and Washington, DC. "This year's L. Michael Goldsmith lecture featuring Dan Kaplan was the largest and most successful to date," said Robert (Bob) W. Balder (B.S. URS '89), Gensler Family Sesquicentennial Executive Director of AAP NYC. The event was complemented by a gallery installation showcasing FXCollaborative's award-winning projects. In his talk titled "Urban Alchemies: Repair and Transformation," Kaplan used the examples in the gallery installation to set out three concepts to approaching urban design. First, the centuries-old method of fixing broken pottery known as Kintsugi, in which lacquer dusted with gold is applied to aged or broken ceramic to accentuate surface cracks, was used to provide a visual metaphor for the city. Next, Kaplan discussed contextual urbanism, where building design should relate to the adjacent context and extend into the future by incorporating sustainability, solar, temperature, humidity, and landscape. Collaboration, the third concept, is rooted in FXCollaborative's philosophy. Formerly FXFowle, the firm rebranded itself in early 2018 to represent a design culture and philosophy reflected in the way its projects are achieved for their clients and the broader community. The annual Goldsmith lecture was established in memory of L. Michael Goldsmith by his family and friends in recognition of his passion for his education at Cornell, his career, and love of the profession of architecture. https://aap.cornell.edu/news-events/kaplan-advocates-urban-alchemy-annual-goldsmith-lecture

Active Matter Summit: Session 6
In recent decades, developments in software and hardware technologies have created dramatic shifts in design, manufacturing and research. Software technologies have facilitated automated process and new solutions for complex problems. Computation has also become a platform for creativity through generative art and design. New hardware platforms and digital fabrication technologies have similarly transformed manufacturing, offering more efficient production and mass customization. Such advances have helped catalyzed the maker-movement, democratizing design and maker culture. This influx of new capabilities to design, compute and fabricate like never before, has sparked a renewed interest in material performance. We are now witnessing significant advances in active matter, 3D/4D Printing, materials science, synthetic biology, DNA nanotechnology and soft robotics, which have led to the convergence of software, hardware and material technologies and the growing field of programmable materials. This conference was about the emerging field of active matter and programmable materials that bridges the worlds of art, science, engineering and design, demonstrating new perspectives for computation, transformation and dynamic material applications. If over the past few decades we have experienced a software revolution, and more recently, a hardware revolution, this conference aims to discuss the premises, challenges and innovations brought by today’s materials revolution. We can now sense, compute, and actuate with materials alone, just as we could with software and hardware platforms previously. How does this shift influence materials research, and how does it shape the future of design, arts, and industrial applications? What tools and design processes do we need to advance, augment and invent new materials today? What are the key roles that industry, government, academic and public institutions can play in catalyzing the field of programmable materials? This two-day conference consisted of a range of talks and lively discussion from leading researchers in materials science, art & design, synthetic biology and soft-robotics along with leaders from government, public institutions and industry.

Rethinking Pei: A Centenary Symposium, Panel 3: Power, Capital, and People
Panel 3 Participants: Seng Kuan, moderator Edward Eigen: “I. M. Pei and the ‘Big Plan’: The Several Lives of the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library & Museum” André Bideau: “Between the Superblock and the Pyramid. I. M. Pei and Araldo Cossutta at La Défense” Cole Roskam: “The Fragrant Hill Hotel: Reassessing the Politics of Tradition and Abstraction in China’s Early Reform Era” Shirley Surya: “Pei's Office and Singapore's Urban Core: Corporate Architecture, Symbolic Aestheticization and Economic Pragmatism” Kellogg Wong: “I. M. Pei & Partners, the Pei Team, and Singapore” A two-part symposium examining the work and life of I. M. Pei from multiple vantage points. Organized by the Harvard GSD with M+, Hong Kong, and the Faculty of Architecture, The University of Hong Kong. Ieoh Ming Pei is one of the most celebrated yet under-theorized architects of the twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. Although Pei’s six-decade career is mostly identified with his unwavering interest in cultural synthesis and the power of pure geometrical form, his modes of practice demand further investigation of their intertwinement with the multiple historical and discursive moments of modern architecture. The two-day symposium will include panel discussions and scholarly presentations that showcase new research on Pei’s manifold contributions to the built environment. Notable alumni from Pei’s office will discuss the emergence of a new kind of architectural practice in the postwar era. Among the topics to be addressed in the paper sessions are technological innovations with concrete, the glass curtain wall, and structural designs; Pei’s longstanding affinities for China’s landscape and vernacular traditions; his legacy on major urban spaces in Boston and other cities around the world; and the increasingly global and transnational conditions of architectural production that Pei successfully navigated. Organized with M+, the new museum for visual culture being built in Hong Kong, this symposium is part of a yearlong celebration of the 100th birthday of Ieoh Ming (I. M.) Pei MArch ’46. Both I. M. and his wife, Eileen Pei GSD ’44, studied at the Harvard Graduate School of Design, as did their sons Chien Chung (Didi) Pei, AB ’68, MArch ’72, and Li Chung (Sandi) Pei, AB ’72, MArch ’76. Pei was also an assistant professor of architecture at the GSD. In March the GSD held a panel discussion, led by Harry Cobb AB ’47, MArch ’49, which focused on the formative years of I. M. Pei’s career as well as some of his special friendships, influences, and projects. A second symposium, co-organized by M+ and the Department of Architecture at the University of Hong Kong, will be held in Hong Kong on December 14-15. These two symposia are made possible with the generous support of the C Foundation.

Mestizo Chronicles: Sources, Readers, Orientations Colloquium at the JCB Library
Saturday, February 13, 2016 John Carter Brown Library, Brown University Providence, Rhode Island The writings of indigenous and mestizo authors are prone to be idealized and sometimes romanticized by contemporary historians who are directly concerned with interrogating colonial hierarchies. The aim of this colloquium is to work towards a more fundamental understanding of these sources by taking the texts themselves as the point of departure, rather than the ethnicity of their authors. What cultural presuppositions and forms of knowledge are inscribed in these works? What are their stylistic or literary models? What are their sources, and how are they transformed? To whom are these texts explicitly and implicitly addressed? How do the authors fashion themselves? Consideration of these questions may lead to more nuanced interpretation of the ideological nature of ‘mestizo chronicles’ and of the agenda of those who produced them.

The Internet Society and others have expressed the specific concern that the unwarranted collection, storage and potential correlation of user data will undermine many of the key principles and relationships of trust upon which the global Internet has been built and that similar efforts by other governments will have a chilling effect on the deployment and adoption of technical solutions for establishing trusted connections online. This half-day event explored these concerns in depth, featuring experts on Internet privacy, security and governance.

Saving the Web: Ethics & Challenges of Preserving the Internet (morning)
Preserving the contents of the internet is an increasingly vital activity. The web today is an ubiquitous global information system, and yet significant amounts of its contents disappear daily. The average web page remains online for barely 100 days. This symposium brings together experts in this field to discuss the major issues in the debate around this topic, the future potential of web archives to researchers and scholars, and the challenges in web archiving that face libraries, governments, institutions and individuals. (Morning Session). Speaker Biography: Dame Wendy Hall is professor of computer science at the University of Southampton, England, and holder of the 2016 Kluge Chair in Technology and Society.

Symposium on Architecture: Organization or Design?
10/15/2015 From cybernetics to systems theory to present-day parametricism, organization has haunted the architectural imagination. Today, many debates about design practice center on data. Given the pervasiveness of information in the material, spatial, formal, and programmatic forms of organization that today’s designer must confront—in objects, networks, and genealogies—the obsession with data is hardly surprising. But data has no intrinsic bearing on the architectural process or its products. It is; how data is organized—acquired, quantified, represented, processed, and manipulated—is what differentiates design outcomes.

Genetic research into the origins, population histories, and structure of indigenous and diasporic populations have provided important scientific insights into the past. However, in and through this research, DNA has emerged as a potent and often problematic ontological device for producing identities, re/connection, and belonging. Operating within the context of colonial modernity, material productions of identity are often shaped by historical racial and social boundaries in the settler state, where DNA is caught up in various identity discourses that may reinforce, resist, or remodel colonial structures of power. This session will explore the ways in which genetic and material claims to identity are constructed within colonial modernity, where a biopolitic oriented to colonial structures of power influences who gets studied, what histories are relevant, who owns history, which bodies count, and where they belong. Panelists will also destabilize these historical dynamics by troubling genetic claims to identity and highlighting emerging work that reorients conventional power relations among the various stakeholders in genetic research. Furthermore, panelists will present and explore alternate, decolonized means of producing genetic science and situate these emerging genetic ontologies alongside non-scientific productions of identity and belonging. This panel will bring together diverse perspectives from genetics, anthropology, sociology, medicine, and law to explore how the material/semiotic power of DNA is deployed within the processes of political subject formation, and how genomics intersects with identity politics in colonial modernity. We will explore how DNA is entangled with discourses of survival and extinction, power and powerlessness, estrangement and familiarization, dis/placement, and appropriation, and will consider the role of scientific discourse and silence in constituting and negotiating identities. Building on previous work exploring the reification of biological race in contemporary genomics, this panel will theorize the generative processes by which such constructions emerge. In order to incorporate the diversity of voices and perspectives needed to critically evaluate the identity politics of DNA and subject formations within colonial modernity, we are proposing a two part, paired panel. Given the interrelatedness of the content in each session, it would be ideal for Part I to directly precede Part II. Part I will include six speakers and one discussant; Part II will include five speakers, one discussant, and 15 minutes for open discussion. This session (Part I) will explore issues of representation in genetic research, how they shape both historical and contemporary knowledge production, and the implications for generating identity and belonging. This session will also explore the current opportunities and future directions that arise from reorienting conventional power relations in genetic research.

Capitalism Definition | Definition & Explanation of Capitalism (Audio Book)
Capitalism is an economic system based on private ownership of the means of production and their operation for profit. Characteristics central to capitalism include private property, capital accumulation, wage labor, voluntary exchange, a price system, and competitive markets.[4][5] In a capitalist market economy, decision-making and investment is determined by the owners of the factors of production in financial and capital markets, and prices and the distribution of goods are mainly determined by competition in the market. Economists, political economists, and historians have adopted different perspectives in their analyses of capitalism and have recognized various forms of it in practice. These include laissez-faire or free market capitalism, welfare capitalism, and state capitalism. Different forms of capitalism feature varying degrees of free markets, public ownership, obstacles to free competition, and state-sanctioned social policies. The degree of competition in markets, the role of intervention and regulation, and the scope of state ownership vary across different models of capitalism; the extent to which different markets are free, as well as the rules defining private property, are matters of politics and of policy. Most existing capitalist economies are mixed economies, which combine elements of free markets with state intervention, and in some cases, with economic planning. Capitalism has existed under many forms of government, in many different times, places, and cultures. Following the decline of mercantilism, mixed capitalist systems became dominant in the Western world and continue to spread. Etymology: The term capitalist, meaning an owner of capital, appears earlier than the term capitalism. It dates back to the mid-17th century. Capitalist is derived from capital, which evolved from capitale, a late Latin word based on caput, meaning "head" – also the origin of chattel and cattle in the sense of movable property (only much later to refer only to livestock). Capitale emerged in the 12th to 13th centuries in the sense of referring to funds, stock of merchandise, sum of money, or money carrying interest. By 1283 it was used in the sense of the capital assets of a trading firm. It was frequently interchanged with a number of other words – wealth, money, funds, goods, assets, property, and so on. The Hollandische Mercurius uses capitalists in 1633 and 1654 to refer to owners of capital. In French, Étienne Clavier referred to capitalistes in 1788, six years before its first recorded English usage by Arthur Young in his work Travels in France (1792). David Ricardo, in his Principles of Political Economy and Taxation (1817), referred to "the capitalist" many times. Samuel Taylor Coleridge, an English poet, used capitalist in his work Table Talk (1823). Pierre-Joseph Proudhon used the term capitalist in his first work, What is Property? (1840), to refer to the owners of capital. Benjamin Disraeli used the term capitalist in his 1845 work Sybil. ........................................................................................

2017 AM: Pacific Landscapes Through the Holocene: From East to West (Part 2)
Through comparative ethnographic analysis, archaeological and historical research this session aims to construct a model of social action ‘since’ the Holocene from China to Australia and across the Pacific. It explores the proposition that across this region humans devised a comparatively unique mode of action. Although it displays considerable difference —variable influences from ENSO/Monsoonal dynamics, Continental/Island structures—throughout this axis of social action landscape manipulations, variable but deep cosmological systems, and modes of production and exchange struggle to create the conditions for in situ modes of existence. This appears to be in contrast to the pattern that developed at the western end of the Euro-Asia landmass and spread to the Americas and the rest of the world. There social systems became organized to extract necessities from other places, other social systems or processes external to the social system, e.g. entirely nature-created nutrient pools. This session begins in the northwestern Pacific then continues to the west sampling and exploring the spatial and conceptual limits of this view by ending with a Bali-inspired view of the ancient Mediterranean world.
