24          TALK: Like Frogs Around a Pond: Maritime Religion in Ancient Greek Culture
UCSB Interdisciplinary Humanities Center, UCSB Humanities & Social Sciences Building, Room 4041, Santa Barbara
> DETAILS   
> HIDE   
The ancient Greeks were never politically unified before the rise of Rome, yet they succeeded in developing and maintaining a common culture all around the Mediterranean coasts ‘like frogs around a pond’ (Plato Phaedo 109b). Modern scholars struggle to explain how the ancient Greeks could have shared such strong bonds of religion, language and identity, despite a homeland of separate city-states, and large-scale migration and intermarriage with other ancient peoples around the Mediterranean sea. Brown argues that the religious system of sailors and travellers helped the ancient Greeks develop and maintain their common culture all around the Mediterranean sea. Cults of seafaring gods were carried from port to port around ancient Greece, its colonies, and into foreign cities, yet this maritime religion and carriage of cults ‘on the winedark sea’ is not well understood today. The sources are very widely scattered. Bringing this evidence back together, however, reveals a durable yet flexible network of travelling rituals and beliefs which bound the ancient Greeks together in unexpected and close-knit ways, even across great distances and without political bonds. Sponsored by the IHC’s Ancient Borderlands RFG.

26          TALK: Afrikan Textiles: Reclaiming Stolen Histories, Identities, and Technologies through Dress Prac
UCSB McCune Conference Room, UCSB Humanities & Social Sciences Building, Room 6020 , Santa Barbara
> DETAILS   
> HIDE   
TALK: Afrikan Textiles: Reclaiming Stolen Histories, Identities, and Technologies through Dress Practices Zingha Foma (History, UCSB) April 26, 2017/5:00 PM McCune Conference Room, 6020 HSSB In this talk-showcase, Zingha Foma will present her research project entitled “Afrikan Textiles: Reclaiming Stolen Histories, Identities, and Technologies through Dress Practices.” Informed by historical research, Zingha argues that Afrikan textile production and dress practices are crucial modes for self-liberation. Currently focused on West Afrikan textiles before European colonization, she demonstrates that Afrikan dress practices are a significant text for understanding Afrikan socio-political histories and identities, and histories of science and technology. Her core research interest is Afrikan self-liberation which, in this case, she articulates through scholarly research and practical innovation. Zingha puts her knowledge from historical research to practical use by designing unique items of clothing that she wears every day. She will talk about her research and showcase her creations. Born in West Africa, Zingha Foma is a third-year undergraduate student in the Department of History at the University of California, Santa Barbara. She is actively engaged in academic and administrative leadership roles at UCSB. Zingha is a key undergraduate member of the IHC African Studies Research Focus Group. She is the Co-chair of the Black Students Union and also of the Multi-Cultural Center, and she is involved with the Pan-African Students Union (PASU). Her selection to become a McNair Scholar has been an acknowledgement of her budding scholarship. Zingha sits on the UCSB Student Fees Advisory Committee as the Vice-chair, and she works with the Education Opportunity Program in her capacity as the African Diasporic Cultural Resource Center Mentor. Zingha’s quest for an intersection between her academic life and self-development is in part represented on her website: Zinghafoma.com. Sponsored by the IHC’s African Studies RFG, the Dept. of Theater and Dance, and Paul Spickard.

          TALK: A Child Hero: Heroic Biographies in Children’s Literature
UCSB Interdisciplinary Humanities Center, UCSB Buchanan Hall, Room 1940, Santa Barbara
> DETAILS   
> HIDE   
The idea of child heroism in Russian literature for children first can be traced to state ideology and analyzed as part of patriotic pedagogical discourse both in the Russian imperial period and in the Soviet Union. Secondly, models of heroic behavior and their narrative representations closely resemble models of behavior by saints found in hagiographic literature. Finally, a character of a child hero who commits an act that is both extraordinary and valuable for the community partakes in an international repertoire of motifs encountered across genres. The poetics of heroic narrative in Soviet children’s literature since the 1920s retains features formed in the previous period and invents some new features, especially by transforming the category of the enemy. This talk focuses on typological and genetic analysis of Soviet narratives of a child hero, with particular attention to works by leading authors of Soviet children’s literature. Svetlana Maslinskaya is a Research Fellow in the Research Center for Russian Children’s Literature at the Institute of Russian Literature (Pushkin House) in St. Petersburg, Russia and head of the Research Center for Russian Children’s Reading at the Leningrad Regional Children’s Library. She is also editor of the journal Children’s Readings: Studies in Children’s Literature. Sponsored by the Dept. of Germanic and Slavic Studies, the Program in Comparative Literature, Interdisciplinary Humanities Center, the Dept. of Education, and the Dept. of History.

      TALK: Ceramics as a Medium and Its Discontents
McCune Conference Room, UCSB Humanities & Social Sciences Building, Room 6040, Santa Barbara
> DETAILS   
> HIDE   
TALK: Ceramics as a Medium and Its Discontents Jenni Sorkin (History of Art & Architecture, UCSB) Thursday, April 27, 2017 / 4:00 PM McCune Conference Room, HSSB 6020 Ceramics has been a marginal practice within the history of postwar art. But embedded in a discourse of experimentation with materials, tactility, and performance, its formal concerns resonate as a parallel medium to avant-garde movements of the 1950s and 1960s, including, but not limited to: Abstract Expressionism, happenings, experimental music, minimalism, and early video art. This talk argues that ceramics is a socially engaged artistic practice that integrates aesthetic concerns with pedagogy and affective discourses.

1          TALK: Academia.Edu & Self-Branding: The Metricisation of Scholars and Scholarly Networks
UCSB Interdisciplinary Humanities Center, UCSB Davidson Library, Room 1312, Santa Barbara
> DETAILS   
> HIDE   
The growing membership of for-profit academic networks such as Academia.edu and ResearchGate has gone hand in hand with an increasing use of metrics in scholarly communication and the development of audit cultures in academia. As scholars we are more and more required to use these websites to promote our work and to establish ourselves as brands. However, these platforms are increasingly supported by business models that sell access to the data we produce there in order to provide profits for the venture capitalist backing these platforms. This talk will provide an overview of the problems these platforms and the trend towards metricisation and self-branding pose to the future of academia. Most importantly, this talk will explore how the measurements that support a quantified academia create issues around privacy and surveillance. The talk will end with a call to action and a discussion of various projects and grassroots initiatives, keen to promote a more ethical publishing system based on promoting connections, control and governance in a not-for-profit environment. Janneke Adema is the co-editor of two books, Really, We’re Helping To Build This . . . Business: The Academia.edu Files, and Symbiosis. She has co-edited special issues of The Journal of Electronic Publishing and The Journal of Media Practice, and has published in numerous journals. Her research focuses on experimental publishing, the material-discursive practices of scholarly research and communication, book history, media studies, critical theory and radical open access. Sponsored by the UCSB Library, the Center for Information Technology and Society, Graduate Division, and the Interdisciplinary Humanities Center.
