Sponsored by:
Center for Latin American Studies, Center for Russian and East European Studies, European Studies Center and Global Studies Center

What does it mean for a course, module, or lesson to be “global’? In part, it means looking at a question from multiple lenses—whether political, economic, social, cultural, ecological, or other. What better way to approach global curriculum planning (and to model collaborative learning for our students!) than to partner with colleagues from other disciplines in the same school? The University Center for International Studies at Pitt is offering a new program that will provide teachers with the time, space, and material support to gather with like-minded colleagues and (re)design an interdisciplinary, global unit or lesson. Science and French teachers might team up to offer a lesson on global warming in the francophone world; or Art, English, and Social Studies teachers might develop a unit on responses to the global refugee crisis in art and literature. We are looking forward to hearing your ideas!

Free parking, Act 48 credit hours, $300 stipend, and a mini-grant (up to $200 for your team) for curricular materials of your choosing.

Reasserting the center of the nation state: How supranational institutions reshape the public sector
Time:

In this talk, I will analyze the impact of institutionalization at the supranational level on reforms that integrate and/or coordinate existing policy sectors at the domestic level. More specifically, I argue that the ongoing agencification of the European Union, where European agencies have been established with the aim of providing policy advice and fostering cooperation, has crucially strengthened these reforms. To examine this hypothesis, I present the results of multilevel analyses that estimate reform activity concerning policy integration and administrative coordination using an original dataset that compares four policy fields – environment, immigration, public health, and unemployment – in thirteen countries (eight EU members and five non-EU members) covering the period from 1985-2014. Overall, the results point to varying patterns of integration and coordination at the nation-state level and to the differential importance of agencification at supranational level.

The Tucci-Cornetti Lecture
Immigration and Italian National Identity in the Plays of Gianni Clementi
Time:
6:00 pm
Presenter:
Stefano Muneroni, Associate Professor in the Department of Drama, University of Alberta
Location:
602 Cathedral of Learning
Sponsored by:
European Studies Center and Global Studies Center along with Department of French & Italian Languages and Literatures, Department of Theatre Arts, Humanities Center and University Honors College

Gianni Clementi is a prolific Italian playwright who has written a number of plays that deconstruct common stereotypes about immigration and look critically at notions of both Italianess and otherness. Drawing on postcolonial theory and migration studies, this paper considers how Clementi's plays, "Ben Hur", "Finis Terrae" and "Clandestini" challenge the otherness with which immigrants are often charged in Italy's media and politics and focuses on the notion of mare nostrum as a hybrid site where individuals of different races and ethnicities negotiate their respective differences.
In order to challenge the homogenizing rhetoric of national identity, Clementi interweaves African legends, Judeo-Christian narratives, and various languages and dialects. The playwright successfully confounds the temporal frames of his plays so that the current migration in the Mediterranean becomes reminiscent of both the Atlantic Middle Passage of African slaves and the 19th and 20th-century Italian emigration. These dramaturgical strategies create meaningful frames of reference through which spectators can experience the limitations of geopolitics, engage with a postcolonial critique of Italian history, and reflect on the possibility of peaceful cohabitation.

This webinar is the third in a professional development series co-sponsored by the American Association for Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies and the European Studies Center. This webinar will focus on career patterns in academia as well as in the field of infrastructure development in EU-countries. Participants will learn about the formats, chances and challenges for developing a strategy for one’s transnational career path. Against this backdrop and providing significant examples, Peter Haslinger will explain about bilateral and cross-European funding programs - this will also include some thoughts about advancing transatlantic exchange in the field of Eastern European Studies.

His scholarly interest focuses on the history of the Habsburg Monarchy and successor states in the 19th and 20th centuries. He has published widely on Hungarian, Czech and Slovak history as well as on questions of nation, region and cultural diversity, on cartography and questions of security. Dr. Haslinger is the spokesperson for the project group that enhances the visibility of Eastern European Studies across disciplines within the Leibniz Association. He is likewise involved in activities for the enhancement of the Humanities and Social Sciences on the European level, among others as a member of the Humanities in the European Research Area (HERA) Network board.

Global Issues Through Literature: Authors Under Authoritarianism
Home Fire by Kamila Shamsie
Time:
5:00 pm
Presenter:
Jeanette Jouili
Location:
4130 Posvar Hall
Sponsored by:
European Studies Center and Global Studies Center

What is life like under authoritarian regimes, especially for writers, artists, and other creative thinkers whose aim is to loosen, bend, and even break the rules? Do harsh regulations constrict or condone innovative artistic practices? How can authors subvert authoritarianism through writing? What happens if they get caught? This year’s Global Issues Through Literature series, a reading group designed for K-12 educators to learn and use new texts in the classroom, will travel the world through the eyes of authors writing under authoritarianism to try to understand the role of literature as document, commentator, and critic of restrictive regimes.

For this session we will read Home Fire by Kamila Shamsie and hear from Pitt Prof. Jeanette Jouili (Religious Studies).

Serbian Film Festival
Time:
2:00 pm
Location:
232 Cathedral of Learning
Announced by:
Center for Russian and East European Studies and European Studies Center on behalf of Serb National Federation

2:00 PM: THE PROMISE
Release Year: 2016
Runtime: 74 minutes
Directed By: Zeljko Mirkovic

In a remote village in the southeast of Serbia something unexpected has happened. All of a sudden, a French family has moved to a poor place deserted by the young. They believe they have found a promised land for growing grapes and winemaking. But they have found only old people in the village, distrusting people with old habits. A new challenge awaited them back home in France – how to persuade sommeliers that superior wine can be made in an unknown region? Can they awake hope and breathe a new life into the old village? This marvelous documentary about winemaking in Serbia won nine international awards so far.

3:30 PM: SERBS ON CORFU
Release Year: 2016
Runtime: 99 minutes
Author: Sladjana Zaric

A documentary by Radio Television of Serbia describing one of the most tragic events faced by the Serbian people – the exile of the entire nation, army, and government of Serbia to the island Corfu, Greece during World War I. In order to avoid a capitulation of their country to the Austro-Hungary Empire, the Serbian Government and army (including the civilian population) decide to leave their own country and cross Albania during the dead of winter to reach the Allies at the Adriatic Sea. This was a unique case in world history that an entire nation immigrated to save their lives.

6:00 PM: SANTA MARIA della SALUTE
Release Year: 2016
Runtime: 117 minutes
Directed By: Zdravko Sotra

An enjoyable biographical story about the love between one of the most famous Serbian poets, Laza Kostic, renowned for his sublime poems, and an attractive, educated, charming, and rich young girl, Lenka Dundjerski. Lenka was the daughter of Kostic’s friend, Lazar Dundjerski. She had read Kostic’s poetry before she met him, and he was thirty years older than her. The love affair inspired one of the most beautiful love poems of Serbian and European poetry, Santa Maria della Salute. The movie was one of most popular movies in Serbia in 2016 and 2017.

President Trump has forged ahead with the America-First Energy Policy, expanding oil and gas extraction while slashing health and environmental regulations. Other countries e.g. Germany and France eschewed shale altogether. Why do countries make such different energy choices? How can we move forward in balancing the benefits and costs from shale? Join a discussion with Shanti Gamper-Rabindran, associate professor from the University of Pittsburgh and Reid Frazier and Amy Sisk, journalists from StateImpact Pennsylvania. We examine shale issues from across the globe and to our local communities that are hosting shale wells, pipelines, disposal wells, and cracker plants.

What does it mean for a course, module, or lesson to be “global’? In part, it means looking at a question from multiple lenses—whether political, economic, social, cultural, ecological, or other. What better way to approach global curriculum planning (and to model collaborative learning for our students!) than to partner with colleagues from other disciplines in the same school? The University Center for International Studies at Pitt is offering a new program that will provide teachers with the time, space, and material support to gather with like-minded colleagues and (re)design an interdisciplinary, global unit or lesson. Science and French teachers might team up to offer a lesson on global warming in the francophone world; or Art, English, and Social Studies teachers might develop a unit on responses to the global refugee crisis in art and literature. We are looking forward to hearing your ideas!

We are currently accepting applications from teams of 2-4 teachers. We will meet three Saturday mornings (3/3, 4/7, and 5/5) from 9-12noon, and new content must be taught in the 2018-2019 school year. At each meeting, you will work intensively with your teammates, receive feedback from other participants, and learn about strategies for interdisciplinary teaching. We welcome teams that include teachers, librarians, curriculum development specialists, and/or administrative personnel. Ideally, each member of the team should interact with the same group of students.

This round-table is a follow-up event to the screening of the Unbearable Lightness of Being (February 28, 2 p.m.) and of Love Affair (March 1, 3 p.m.) and is part of the UCIS-wide anniversary series on 1968. The panel will explore (partly based on the films and the book) the question whether 1968 has a universal meaning across geographic space and time. The round-table's contribution to the UCIS-wide event will be to tease out some of the ways in which for 1968 a “kinship system” may exist (to use Wittgenstein’s analogy), but the implications are profoundly different (in the first and second worlds, or in a distribution system that is—essentially—domestic Serbian/film festival vs. US/box-office).

Dusan Makavejev’s Love Affair provides us with an example of cinematic reflexivity, which can be defined as any technique that reminds the viewer that he or she is watching a film. Reflexivity foregrounds the fact that film meaning is a function of a set of codes with ideological implications rather than a transparent reflection of reality. Reflexivity can be achieved through intertextuality, exaggeration of cinematic conventions or conspicuous narration that reminds us of the author’s mark on the text. These techniques are all in evidence in Love Affair, whose textual heterogeneity calls into question the earnestness of cinematic (including socialist) realism as well as the official ideologies of state communism. As Thomas Elsaesser notes, Love Affair juxtaposes three sites of meaning: “the liberating intimacy of a sexual relationship…, the public world of abstract didacticism and cold rationality…, [and] the memory of the Russian Revolution and Tito’s national liberation war”. (Elsaesser, European Cinema: Face to Face with Hollywood, p. 322) Our understanding of Makavejev’s view of 1960s Yugoslavian society depends on our interpretation of the ironic and tragic relationship between these three sites of meaning. (Alex Lykidis, "Love Affair," Critical Commons)

The film will be introduced Dr. Ljiljana Duraskovic, Director of Undergraduate Studies, Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures.

The inland rivers of Central Eurasia intersect vast regions, sustain diverse communities, and inform social identities. This symposium will explore how efforts to control and exploit the various potentials of these waterways reflect economic, political, and cultural histories that continue to shape local relationships of aquatic and anthropoid life. The speakers are part of a growing international and interdisciplinary group of scholars who focus on water and society in Central Eurasia and engage conversations of urgent concern and global relevance. Central Eurasia has become known for the ways in which multiple countries have for decades contested the natural resources of the Amu Darya and Syr Darya although these rivers feed hydroelectric power production and agriculture at the expense of ecology—tragically shrinking the Aral Sea. Symposium participants will consider cross-cutting issues that center on cases of navigation, flood control, channel management, irrigation, and dam construction. This emphasis will promote a broad discussion with our audience about water-society relationships within globalizing contexts of the modern world.

This session explores ways in which the Baltic region enabled the rise and consolidation of the French
colonial empire in the Americas. As a supplier of naval stores, the Baltic has long been viewed as central to
early modern European expansion overseas. Nevertheless, its particular association with French empire
building remains little studied. Drawing on data from the Danish Sound Toll Registers and French consular
records form Copenhagen, Elsinore, Stockholm, and St. Petersburg, the paper delineates how French
colonization began as an attempt to secure commercial independence from the Baltic, only to produce the
opposite effect of binding the French colonial enterprise and the Baltic ever closer together.

Comments will be offered by Niklas Frykman and Allyson Delnore.

The multiple uprisings of 1968 challenged authorities worldwide, and led to many reforms, but the insurgents misunderstood the nature of their insurgencies, and this misunderstanding drastically limited their effects. They did not add up to a revolution. Rather, in their multiplicity, they were something far more complicated and ambiguous: the culmination of an era of incremental progressive change, a signal of the collapse of conventional liberalism, and a prologue to deep cultural changes as well as grim backlash

Our center is excited to announce the launch of professional development webinars offered by the Herder Institute for Historical Research on East-Central Europe. Are you a scholar or academic professional curious about European higher education and research? Discover opportunities to enhance your career mobility and research. This series is co-sponsored by the American Association for Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies and the European Studies Center.

Germany provides a highly developed network of university and non-university expertise for Eastern Europe and the post-Soviet states. The first webinar presented by the Herder Institute will provide a survey of all existing centers and institutions, and give an overview about their regional focus, research hubs, collections and infrastructures.

“Conversion Stories: Turning Communists into Nazis”
Time:
5:00 pm
Presenter:
Sabine Hake, University of Texas at Austin, German Literature and Culture
Location:

Center for Russian and East European Studies and European Studies Center on behalf of

Historians have long argued about the relationship between the workers and the Nazis. Did the Nazis betray the German working class or did they offer solutions to their problems? Answering these questions as part of a larger debate about politics and emotions means to pay close attention to the grievances and resentments that made possible the shift from class to race as the main category of identification. This lecture uses a little-known genre from the early 1930s known as Bewegungsromane (novels about the Nazi movement) to reconstruct the social(ist) imaginaries mobilized in the name of National Socialism. Today these Nazi conversion stories not only shed light on the politics of emotion that turned Communists into Nazis; they also model the symbolic convergence of nationalism, socialism, and populism in modern mass movements.
