Dr. Dana Cuff, Director of cityLAB-UCLA and Professor of Architecture and Urban Design, situates the current need for new models of everyday residential life in this historical context. She examines the role that architecture has played in opening new possibilities in the face of crises, including the multidimensional housing crisis that major urban centers confront today. Cuff adheres to Hayden White’s notion of a practical past, and deploys historical interpretation for future speculation, particularly to advance the cause of urban spatial justice. She models ways that research and practice cohere in cityLAB’s prototypical housing experiments. Dr. Cuff’s  lab relies on design research to study and demonstrate alternative forms of accommodation that have led to full-scale mock ups as well as radical land use policy passed in the state of California. In this postsuburban era, the American Dream will need to expand so that all of us can live together, sustainably and with dignity.

07:00PM 09:00PM Close Escapes: Four Poets on Leaving Georgia: University Event Topic: HumanitiesSchool: Emory CollegeDepartment / Organization: Fox Center for Humanistic InquiryMeeting Organizer/Sponsor: Fox Center & Georgia HumanitiesSpeaker/Presenter: Dr. Lizzy LeRudEvent Open To: All (Public)Cost: FreeRegistration / R.S.V.P. link: fchi.emory.eduContact Name: Fox Center for Humanistic InquiryContact Email: foxcenter@emory.eduLink: http://fchi.emory.edu/home/documents/GEORGIA%20SEMINARS/CloseEscapes-LeRudUPDATED.pdfBorn in Georgia, poets John Rollins Ridge, Conrad Aiken, and Alice Walker all experienced moments of extreme trauma that pushed them out of their home state. Born in Florida, Chelsea Rathburn moved to Georgia in 2001, returning to a place that had once been her family’s longtime home. Just months ago, Rathburn became Georgia’s newest poet laureate. These departures (and, for some, homecomings) marked significant events in these poets’ lives that correspond in turn with some of the state’s most pivotal moments: Indian Removal, the rise of Jim Crow laws, the Great Migration, and contemporary debates about women’s rights as mothers. How does leaving Georgia and leaving for Georgia influence these writers and their work? How do a state’s policies and communities shape the lives of its writers? This seminar will be moderated by Lizzy LeRud, scholar of American poetry and poetics, a former Fox Center fellow who is currently a Marrion L. Brittain Postdoctoral Fellow at Georgia Institute of Technology. During the final seminar session, Lizzy will be joined by Chelsea Rathburn for a conversation focused on Rathburn’s newest book, Still Life with Mother and Knife (2019). This seminar will meet at the Fox Center for Humanistic Inquiry from 7-9pm on four Thursday evenings sessions during the spring 2020 semester: March 26, April 9, 16, and 23. + Fox Center for Humanistic Inquiry<br>1635 N.

Any updates for future events and rescheduled performances will be posted online and on the Arts at Emory calendar. Visit here for more information on Emory University’s response to COVID-19. “Not Coming to a Theater Near You” is a student-run festival, programmed by third-year film studies major and festival founder Evan Amaral (supervised by Department Chair Dr. Matthew H. Bernstein), and sponsored by the Department of Film and Media Studies. None of the films from our diverse selection have screened theatrically in Atlanta — one of the country’s largest, fastest-growing hubs of film production — so Emory brings them here to be shared with local film lovers. The fourth feature made in secret by Panahi since the Iranian government imposed a now-thirty-year filmmaking ban on him, this Cannes Best Screenplay winner is a gently funny, loving tribute to three generations of female artists. Panahi and Behnaz Jafari, playing themselves, embark on a road trip through the countryside to find a missing young actress who left them a cryptic message. A Kino Lorber release.
