Camille A. Brown & Dancers

Camille A. Brown, in collaboration with dramaturg/director Kamilah Forbes, composer Scott Patterson, set designer Liz Nelson, and lighting designer Burke Wilmore, creates a multimedia work that depicts the complexities of carving out a positive identity as a Black female in urban American culture. Using Angela Davis bookBlues Legacies and Black Feminism, Toni MorrisonsThe Bluest Eye, and community-based participatory research as inspiration, this work seeks to examine the politics of pleasure, the concept of patriarchy, and contemporary notions of beauty for black women while addressing the ambiguity and overlap of these topics. Combining history and musicology with the fantastical approach ofAlice and Wonderland, Camille A. Brown asks the question: what are our rabbit holes?

Known for high theatricality, gutsy moves, and virtuosic musicality, Camille A. Brown & Dancers soar through history like a whirlwind. The companys work explores typical, real life situations ranging from literal relationships to more complex themes with an eye on the past and present.

The Passion for the Thing: Learning to Write Everyday

Jay Atkinson has published seven books, with an eighth scheduled for September 2015; his articles and essays have appeared in the New York Times, Poets & Writers magazine, Boston Globe, Men's Health, and many other publications. In this brief talk and Q & A, Jay will outline strategies for getting your stories down on paper; he learned many of these practical lessons from his writing teacher and mentor, the acclaimed Souther novelist, Harry Crews, who died in 2012. Crews's most cherished piece of advice was delivered early on, when Jay was a young writing student at the University of Florida in the early 1980s. Looking his charge in the eye, Crews said, "That's the thing: to have the passion for the thing, and to remain true to it."

Emile Bustani Middle East Seminar
Gaza: Inventions and Illuminations

The lecture will be divided into three parts.

Part one will attempt to separate rhetoric from reality by examining key political, economic and social conditions and dynamics in Gaza before and after the summer 2014 conflict, identifying Gazas major challenges and constraints.

Part two will address (and critique) the role of the international community, past and present, particularly with regard to planned reconstruction efforts.

Part three will argue for a new revisionist framework for Gaza specifically and Palestine more generally if meaningful and sustainable economic and political change is to be realized.

The Bustani Middle East Seminar is organized under the auspices of the MIT Center for International Studies, which conducts research on contemporary international issues and provides an opportunity for faculty and students to share perspectives and exchange views. Each year the Bustani Seminar invites scholars, journalists, consultants, and other experts from the Middle East, Europe, and the United States to MIT to present recent research findings on contemporary politics, society and culture, and economic and technological development in the Middle East.

Poetry and History: An Evening with Natasha Trethewey
United States Poet Laureate (2012-2014) and Pulitzer Prize winner Natasha Trethewey will read poems from "Thrall", "Native Guard", "Bellocqs Ophelia", and other works.

Combining personal experience and the intimacy of memoir with national history and the grand sweep of social and cultural change, Trethewey's poems repeatedly delineate and blur the boundary between private and public stories. Whether writing about the Casta Paintings of Colonial Mexico, black regiments serving during the Civil War, or her own family, she reveals the ways in which we are shaped by the stories we tell and that others tell about us.

In May 2014, Natasha Trethewey concluded two terms as the nineteenth Poet Laureate of the United States. She is currently the State Poet Laureate of Mississippi. Trethewey is the author of four collections of poetry: "Domestic Work" (Graywolf Press, 2000); "Bellocqs Ophelia" (Graywolf Press, 2002); "Native Guard" (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2006) for which she was awarded the Pulitzer Prize and, most recently, "Thrall" (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2012). She also has written a book of nonfiction, "Beyond Katrina: A Meditation on the Mississippi Gulf Coast" (University of Georgia Press, 2010), and a memoir to be released in 2015. Trethewey is the recipient of fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Guggenheim Foundation, the Rockefeller Foundation, the Beinecke Library at Yale, and the Bunting Fellowship Program of the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard. She is the Robert W. Woodruff Professor of English and Creative Writing at Emory University. During her second term as U.S. Poet Laureate, Trethewey contributed to "Where Poetry Lives", a feature on the PBS NewsHour. In the series, she traveled with Senior Correspondent Jeffrey Brown to cities across the country and explored societal issues through poetry, literature, and her own personal experiences.
