Asen Kirin – Lecture on “One Heart, One Way” Exhibition
Aug 23 @ 5:30 pm
Asen Kirin - Lecture on "One Heart, One Way" Exhibition @ Georgia Museum of Art | Athens | Georgia | United States

Parker Curator of Russian Art Asen Kirin will give a lecture in conjunction with the exhibition “One Heart, One Way: The Journey of a Princely Art Collection.”

The works included in this show date from 1660 to 1917 and were passed from one generation to the next in the same Russian aristocratic family the Princes Belosselsky-Belozersky who trace their origins to the legendary founder of the medieval state of Kievan Rus’ the Viking Prince Riurik of Jutland (reign 862-879). In 862 Riurik bestowed on one of his two brothers the vast Belozersky (“White Lake”) domain in Northeastern Europe, hence the dynastic name. For centuries the family crest has included a motto referring to an honorable singleness of mind and action, a quote from the Book of Prophet Jeremiah 32:39—“One heart, one way.”

Lewis Gordon – “Kinds of Invisibility in Euromodernity”
Oct 12 @ 3:30 pm
Lewis Gordon - “Kinds of Invisibility in Euromodernity" @ Peabody Hall, Rm 115

Lewis Gordon will deliver his lecture entitled “Kinds of Invisibility in Euromodernity” on October 12th at 3:30pm in 115 Peabody Hall.  This talk offers a reading of “modern” that challenges the tendency to equate it with “European.”  This tendency leads to several kinds of invisibility, in which Gordon will focus, through phenomenological description and interrogation, on four: (1) racial, (2) indigeneity, (3) gendered, and (4) epistemic.  Lewis Gordon is Professor of Philosophy at the University of Connecticut; Honorary President of the Global Center for Advanced Studies; European Union Visiting Chair in Philosophy at Université Toulouse Jean Jaurès, France; and Honorary Professor at the Unit of the Humanities at Rhodes University, South Africa.
