30th Anniversary Joshua A. Guberman Lecture: Capital Punishment in a Time of Drones and Beheadings: A Global Perspective
Monday, November 3, 2014, 5 – 7 p.m.


5:00 pm Reception; 5:30 pm Program begins
Speaker: William J. Leahy, NYS Office of Indigent Legal Services, presents "Capital Punishment in a Time of Drones and Beheadings: A Global Perspective on the American Death Penalty"

American criminal justice is strong on constitutional rights, but often falls short putting those rights into practice. Seen from a global perspective, the American system mixes high ideals with glaring inequalities and inconsistencies. Perhaps the greatest controversy -- at home and abroad -- surrounds the role of the death penalty in American justice. At a time when American foreign policy has confronted the problem of terrorism, the very definition of "just punishment" has grown more challenging.

Daisies Cinephile Sunday

CINÉPHILE SUNDAYS: 100 Years of Tramps

The Cinéphile Sundays series offers exemplary films—five each semester—from all parts of the globe and all periods of cinematic history. This fall, we celebrate the 100th anniversary of Charlie Chaplin’s creation of the character of the Tramp, by showing three of his films (one short and two features), plus three other films made in the spirit of the Tramp’s subversive laughter.

Daisies (1966) Directed by Vera Chytilová

Maybe the New Wave’s most anarchic entry, Vera Chytilová’s absurdist farce follows the misadventures of two brash young women. Believing the world to be “spoiled,” they embark on a series of pranks in which nothing—food, clothes, men, war—is taken seriously. Daisies is an aesthetically and politically adventurous film that’s widely considered one of the great works of feminist cinema.

Peer Review / Censorship
Monday, November 17, 2014, 5:30 – 7 p.m.

Speaker: Professor Arindam Dutta, Associate Professor of Architectural History. He is the Director of the History, Theory, Criticism Program in Art and Architecture, and the SMArchS Program at MIT

Debates regarding censorship tend to paint the censor in the form of a supervening power (the state, a bureaucracy, the demotic mob, corporate media, etc.) producing a barrier between something called ???free speech??? and its untrammelled, unmediated reception by the public sphere. A world without censorship, one would thus assume, would be a world without communicational turbulence, where speech impeccably mirrors certain truths that are then received by their audiences sans noise or interference. This talk contests such a conception of free speech, one whose rights would seem to stem from outside precinct of ???nature??? and natural right: censorship is not so much an obstruction in some linear passage of self-evident, pre-political truths from addressor to addressee but reflects a contest over the political domain as such, a battle over the composition of the state rather than against it. The talk takes up a string of recent examples of censorship in India , pertaining to works of art or scholarship, particularly those driven by the religious (Hindu) right. It argues that the liberal critique of censorious cultural nationalisms ??? however necessary ??? nonetheless occludes a more robust questioning of the inherent complicities between free speech and censorship. Rather than proclaim, yet again, an end to censorship, the talk invites us to think of democratic politics as necessarily mediated by various forms of censorships to which various groups willingly subscribe. Censorship, simply put, must be seen as inherent in any kind of social contract. Academic peer review, where a ???community??? of ???qualified??? scholars/censors hides behind the veil of anonymity to pronounce on the verifiability of scholarly propositions, is an example in point. It also instantiates precisely the problem in question.

Physics Colloquium: That Spin 0 Boson Changes Everything -- The Future of the Energy Frontier in Particle Physics
Tuesday, October 28, 2014, 4 – 5 p.m.

Location: Abelson 131

Speaker: Raymond Brock, Michigan State University

The "Higgs Boson" discovery requires us to think differently about planning for the future of Particle Physics. While the decades-long confirmation of the Standard Model itself an historic episode, as a dynamical model of nature it is unhelpful as a clear guide to the future. I???ll review the features of the Standard Model that make it superb, I???ll point out why it???s frustrating, and I???ll describe the hints that motivate us in the coming decades.
