          TALK: Imperfect Strangers: Americans, Arabs, and U.S.-Middle East Relations in the 1970s
UCSB Interdisciplinary Humanities Center, UCSB Humanities & Social Sciences Building, Room 6020, Santa Barbara
> DETAILS   
> HIDE   
Salim Yaqub discusses Imperfect Strangers, his new book on U.S.-Arab relations in the 1970s. He argues that the seventies were a pivotal decade in U.S.-Arab relations–a time when Americans and Arabs became an inescapable presence in each other’s lives and perceptions, and when each society came to feel profoundly vulnerable to the political, economic, cultural, and even physical encroachments of the other. Throughout the 1970s, these impressions aroused striking antagonism between the United States and the Arab world. Over the same period, however, elements of the U.S. intelligentsia grew more respectful of Arab perspectives, and a newly assertive Arab American community emerged into political life. These patterns left a contradictory legacy of estrangement and accommodation that continued in later decades and remains with us today. Copies of Imperfect Strangers will be available for sale immediately after the event. Salim Yaqub is Professor of History at UCSB, and Director of the Center for Cold War Studies and International History. He is the author of Containing Arab Nationalism: The Eisenhower Doctrine and the Middle East (University of North Carolina, 2004). His second book, Imperfect Strangers: Americans, Arabs, and U.S.-Middle East Relations in the 1970s, was published by Cornell University Press in 2016. Sponsored by the Center for Middle Eastern Studies and the Center for Cold War Studies and International History.

27          CONFERENCE: Radical Bodies: Anna Halprin; Simone Forti; Yvonne Rainer in CA and NY 1955 – 1972
UCSB Interdisciplinary Humanities Center, UCSB Humanities & Social Sciences Building, Room 6020, Santa Barbara
> DETAILS   
> HIDE   
In the summer of 1960, dancer-choreographer and social activist Anna Halprin taught a revolutionary workshop on her open-air dance deck located on the slopes of Mt. Tamalpais north of San Francisco. A natural environment within civic view, the dance deck had long drawn celebrated collaborators Merce Cunningham and John Cage. The 1960 summer dance workshop catalyzed the improvisational art of what is today known as the Judson Dance Theater and change forever how, where and by whom contemporary dance is made, performed and installed. Among the dancers attending the now famed workshop were Simone Forti, then married to the artists Robert Morris, and Yvonne Rainer. Within two years, Forti’s forceful dance constructions had premiered in Yoko Ono’s loft and Rainer had helped found Judson Dance Theater. Radical Bodies reunites Halprin, Forti, and Rainer for the first time in over 45 years. Radical Bodies: Anna Halprin, Simone Forti, and Yvonne Rainer California and New York, 1955-1972, a day-long conference, reunites all 3 artists for the first time since 1960. Together, in conversation with Judson Scholar Wendy Perron, Anna, Simone and Yvonne will discuss the roots of postmodernism in dance and the visual arts. These up close and personal discussions will be surrounded by scholarly papers and film showings and conclude with the grand opening of the exhibition at UCSB’s Museum of Art, Architecture & Design and the Santa Barbara premiere of Yvonne Rainer’s MoMa-curated work, Concept of Dust (2014).
