Hamlet (1920) Shakespeare on the Global Silver Screen
Asta Nielsen, born in Denmark in 1881, was the first diva of European silent film. To realize her artistic vision she founded her own company, Art-Film, in 1920. Her production of Hamlet, produced that same year, features a female Hamlet character and initially survived only in a black-and-white US export version. A colored vintage print of the lost German original version of 1921 was discovered in 2005. The restored film had its premiere at the Berlinale in 2007, with new musical accompaniment composed by Michael Riessler (Source: Edition Filmmuseum). Special presentation in 35mm About Shakespeare on the Global Silver Screen: Presented to expand upon themes in the special exhibition Shakespeare Pictured: Art and Books from Wellesley Collections, this selection of six films demonstrates the sustained and diverse engagement with Shakespeare that has inspired filmmakers around the world for nearly a century. Additional Shakespeare on the Global Silver Screen films: March 9: Throne of Blood April 13: Chimes at Midnight May 4: Omkara Generously supported by the Davis Museum Film Program Gift, and co-hosted by the Cinema and Media Studies and English departments.

Mary L. Cornille Lecture with Françoise Lionnet: "Literary Routes: Migration and the Creative Economy"
"In summer 2015, the media spotlight was trained daily on the accelerating crisis in the Mediterranean. Yet news reports and statistics have only routinized and depersonalized these disasters. As a humanist, I am more interested in the small narratives and significant details that give us the texture and fabric of human interactions in the contact zones of migratory flows. My presentation engages with the poetic and theatrical work of Soeuf Elbadawi, who reminds us that this crisis is a global phenomenon that reaches deep into the southwestern Indian Ocean and the Comoros archipelago, off the coast of East Africa, where Mayotte is the 5th overseas department of France. I will reflect on the way our analytical disciplines can contribute to a rethinking of the means of representation and dissemination of creative perspectives from the so-called "ultraperipheries" of Europe. What can literary critics do to enhance awareness of human rights issues and further epistemological equality? What is the critical effectiveness of literature in the world as agent of cultural change and how do we heighten appreciation for stories and storytelling, for the insatiable human desire to make sense of a chaotic world through narrative?" Françoise Lionnet is the Mary L. Cornille Distinguished Visiting Professor In the Humanities, Wellesley College, Prof. of Romance Languages and Literatures, Harvard University, UCLA Distinguished Professor, French and Francophone, Comparative Literature, and Gender Studies (on leave).

Tay Gavin Erickson Lectures Series Presents Stephen Hinshaw
Stephen Hinshaw, Ph.D, professor of psychology and Vice-Chair for Psychology, Department of Psychiatry, University of California, San Francisco, will present “Psychopathology and Stigma, Empirical Science and Narrative: The Need for Integration.”

For more information contact: http://www.umass.edu/family

Dr. Hinshaw's interests lie in the fields of clinical child and adolescent psychology and developmental psychopathology.  Major themes include the diagnostic validity of childhood disorders, the role of family and peer relationships in normal and atypical development, the early prediction of behavioral and learning problems, the neuropsychology and neurobiology of impulsive and externalizing behavior, expressions of psychopathology, and the implementation of combinations of psychosocial and pharmacologic intervention for children with externalizing behavior disorders, with strong emphasis on moderators and mediators of outcome.  Increasingly, Dr. Hinshaw’s research interests are focusing on adolescent and young adult outcomes, as the youth continue to participate in his various prospective, longitudinal studies.  An additional area of focus is the stigmatization of mental illness, with interest in a variety of related topics (e.g., interpersonal manifestations of stigma, implicit attitudes, developmental processes, media influences, dehumanization, and international efforts to combat stigma).

This lecture is free and open to the public.

This lecture is sponsored by the Center for Research on Families’ Tay Gavin Erickson Lecture Series. The Center for Research on Families (CRF) is an endowed interdisciplinary research center in the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences and College of Natural Sciences at the University of Massachusetts Amherst.   The Tay Gavin Erickson Lecture Series brings internationally recognized speakers with expertise in family research to campus each year. The lecture series began in 1999 through an endowment established in memory of Tay Gavin Erickson.

Social Science Matters Lecture: 'Resisting Police'
Paul Amar, associate professor in the global and international studies program at the University of California, Santa Barbara, speaks on “Resisting Police: Police Forces as Social Movements in Contentious Fields of Authoritarian-Populism, Militarized Masculinity, and Racial Brutality.”

New York City police officers, in December 2014, collectively turned their backs on Mayor De Blasio during the funeral of officer Rafael Ramos. With this act, they transformed a memorial into a "mass protest," demonstrated contempt for anti-racism protesters, and opposed the mayor's plans to institute accountability. This funeral protest launched a wave of police protests and on-air diatribes that observers began to call a "cop coup" or a "revolt of uniformed thugs."  In October that same year, police in Rio de Janeiro rose up in protest against anti-brutality activists in their own city. The police threatened to "unleash hell," go on strike, and leave the public at the mercy of organized crime.  A year before, in June 2013 in Egypt, much of the legacy of the 2011-era progressive uprisings in Tahrir Square was overturned by a massive multi-million strong protest led by police officers in Cairo. Officers marched locked arm in arm, chanting "the people and the army and the police are one hand."  This alliance of police and military then overthrew the elected government, ushered in a military coup, and jailed thousands of opposition and revolutionary youth leaders.

For too long, many social movement theorists and analysts of resistance have  aimed their spotlight at progressive mobilizations. These studies have tended to treat the police as a mere tool of state or law, or as an reflex reaction of social control. But we cannot ignore the increasingly visible role that police play as autonomous formations, channeling right-wing social resistance to the state. Police mobilize forms of social militarization, populist masculinity, and even authoritarian tendencies, in particular ways for particular social, historical and political reasons. This lecture will provide a global and comparative view of this phenomena -- police as protesters -- and outline a new agenda for research and public action.

The following morning, he will give a talk on his book “The Security Archipelago,”  followed by a panel discussion.

Sponsored by the Department of Political Science and the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences.
