          Learn to Meditate
Mahakankala Buddhist Center, 508 Brinkerhoff Ave., Santa Barbara
> DETAILS   
> HIDE   
How does the state of our mind affect our health and well-being? Perhaps we believe that a positive attitude is generally beneficial. Perhaps we recognize that some lifestyle choices are more harmful than others. But do we understand how our own mind actually creates our experience of contentment and peace, or of pain and dissatisfaction? We can’t control external situations, but we can learn to control how we respond to them.   ($10

19          TALK: Making Shakespeare: Theatre as Community Engagement
UCSB Interdisciplinary Humanities Center, UCSB Humanities & Social Sciences Building, Room 6020, Santa Barbara
> DETAILS   
> HIDE   
How does Shakespeare make different kinds of meaning in various local communities? And how can amateur theatre be a form of community engagement for drama and Shakespeare scholars? This talk will consider how community productions of Shakespeare produce indigenous forms of knowledge that should be of interest to academics and amateur theatre-makers alike. It further calls for academics who study Shakespeare to engage with their own community by not only attending local productions of Shakespeare, but also by making theatre alongside amateur actors and directors who are engaging in practice-based, collaborative research that shares knowledge and expertise and de-centers Shakespearean authority. Examples in the talk will be drawn from Brokaw’s own work acting, directing, and dramaturging with the amateur company Merced Shakespearefest in California’s Central Valley.   ($0

      TALK: Parties, Ideology, and Ethnic Politics: Ideological Polarization in Multi-Ethnic Societies
UCSB Interdisciplinary Humanities Center, UCSB Ellison Hall, Room 3824, Santa Barbara
> DETAILS   
> HIDE   
There is a widespread notion within India as well as outside the country that Indian politics, for all its competitive diversity, is not ideological in nature. In this talk Chhibber shows that this common perception is misplaced. Electoral politics in India is deeply ideological. Voters and parties can be clearly differentiated on the ideological question of the state’s proper role in society, and that this question in turn gives rise to debates over whether the Indian state should or should make special provisions for marginalized social groups and relatedly the extent to which the state should hew to a majoritarian impulse, and whether the state should be ontologically prior to society, i.e. the state should remake social norms and practices associated with different social groups. Chhibber argues that this ideological divide is stable and has had a lasting influence on the arc of development of the party system in India. This talk is based on a new book by Pradeep Chhibber and Rahul Verma, from UC Berkeley. The IHC’s Identity Studies RFG and the Dept. of Political Science.

          Black Classicism in the United States
UCSB Interdisciplinary Humanities Center, UCSB Art Design and Architecture Museum, Santa Barbara
> DETAILS   
> HIDE   
For many years only well-born Americans had access to a classically–based liberal arts education. But after the Civil War newly freed slaves aspired to the same. Thus arose black classicists who studied and taught Greek and Latin successfully in an era when few believed that black people could or should. Michele Valerie Ronnick is a Professor at the Department of Classical and Modern Languages, Literatures, and Cultures, Wayne State University, and Curator of the exhibition ’14 Black Classicists’ which will be on at the ADA Museum and the UCSB Library from Jan 14th to April 30th. Sponsored by the Departments of Classics and Black Studies, the Hellenic Studies Committee, the Argyropoulos Endowment in Hellenic Studies, and the IHC’s Slavery, Captivity, and the Meaning of Freedom RFG.   ($0
