11:30AM 01:00PM WEBCAST - The Lunch Colloquium: University Event Topic: Lectures & Meetings School: Emory University Department/Organization: Emeritus College Meeting Organizer/Sponsor: Emory Emeritus College Speaker/Presenter: Clark Poling, Professor of Art Emeritus Contact Name: Gray Crouse Contact Email: gcrouse@emory.edu Surrealist Themes In this Lunch Colloquium, Clark Poling will share insights on Surrealism he has recently offered in an OLLI course, insights that have emerged from his many decades of research, presentation, and publication at Emory, pre-retirement, where he served as chair of the Art History Department, director of the Michael C. Carlos Museum, and Faculty Curator of Works of Art on Paper, and in California, post-retirement.  We're please he's back in Atlanta again, ready to tell us how Surrealism arose in Paris in the 1920s and 30s as a critique of the society of its time, promoting the virtues of irrationality and freedom from stylistic, moral and political constraints.  Early psychiatry and Sigmund Freud's new theories inspired the Surrealists to explore their own dreams and fantasies, producing startling images often visualized through inventive artistic techniques.  In style, their work ranged from free-wheeling abstractions to carefully depicted dream images.  The major contributors to the movement included the painters Salvador Dali, Max Ernst, Frida Kahlo, and Joan Miro and the sculptor Alberto Giacometti, as well as the sometime participant Pablo Picasso.  The talk will focus on themes shared by these artists: war and violence, the psychoanalysis of sex, and the creation of personal mythology. + None Campus Events

12:00PM 01:30PM The Checkered Past of Brazil’s New Race Court (JWJI Race & Difference Colloquium Series): University Event Topic: Diversity,Lectures & Meetings,Ongoing Event,Seminars & Workshops Department/Organization: Emory Libraries,James Weldon Johnson Institute for the Study of Race and Difference,Rose Library Building/Room: Robert W. Woodruff Library Meeting Organizer/Sponsor: James Weldon Johnson Institute for the Study of Race and Difference Speaker/Presenter: Ruth Hill (Andrew W. Mellon Chair in the Humanities, Professor of Spanish, Vanderbilt University) Cost: Free Registration / R.S.V.P. link: https://form.jotform.com/53145385695162 Contact Name: Anita Spencer Stevens Contact Email: jwji@emory.edu Link: www.jwji.emory.edu A categorical crisis around racially-mixed persons has become a legal quagmire in Brazil. In August 2016, the Brazilian government announced the formation of the Racial Court (Tribunal Racial) to confront the steady stream of legal challenges that has beset the racial segment of the country’s Quotas System (Sistema de Cotas). The latter is an affirmative-action program giving preference to the disabled, the economically-disadvantaged, graduates of public schools, and specific racial groups (Amerindians and persons of African ancestry) in government offices and higher education. Litigation and media attention are centered on the program’s interstitial racial category, pardo,-a. The category preto—the straightforward “black” in Brazil until it was jettisoned in educated quarters for negro, “negro”—and the category pardo (of European and an undefined amount of African and/or native origins) are often treated as subsets of the category negro. Still, color not descent is invoked when it is stated that persons “of pardo color” or “preto color” are eligible for the racial quotas for government posts, which are set aside “for negros and pardos.” Whether colors or categories, where does pardo end and branco (“white”) or negro begin? In other words, when does afrodescendente (“Afro-descendant”) end and branco begin? In this Race and Difference Colloquium, Ruth Hill (Andrew W. Mellon Chair in the Humanities, Professor of Spanish, Vanderbilt University) argues that the pardo problem of today streams from the first global and systematic investigation into racial admixture, in the sixteenth century, which came on the heels of legislation to “uplift” Catholic neophytes in the Iberian empires. Those centuries-old arguments over mixed-race neophytes anticipated the moral and legal dilemmas of Brazil’s present-day affirmative-action program. + Woodruff Library, Jones Room (RM 311) Campus Events
