Eine Berliner Romanze/A Berlin Romance (Gerhard Klein, 1956) Mid-1950s Berlin, before the building of the Wall. Uschi, a salesgirl and aspiring fashion model from the East, is attracted to Hans, from the West. But she also loves the bright shop windows in his part of the city. The flashiness of this new world soon evaporates, however, when Hans loses his job. Inspired by Italian neorealism and shot on location in East and West Berlin, this cross-border romance precisely depicts daily life in the divided city before the Wall. It is now considered one of the most accurate portrayals of the Cold War Berlin youth scene during the 1950s. The film's frank images of youthful dreams and longings...

In Let Them Drown, the 2016 London Edward W. Said lecture, Naomi Klein calledattention, as Rob Nixon's Slow Violence and the Environmentalism of the Poor had done, to the nexus of climate change, (colonial) racism and poverty. But she shifted the spotlight onto the oft-overlooked low-lying island states. And their current day situation is dire. Island nations and sub-Saharan Africa have been hardest hit by climate change, compounded by poverty. Today's talk will present research that rests at the intersection of environmental science, cartography, visual arts and creative nonfiction to illustrate the impacts of sea level rise on low lying islands and the solutions being put forward to...

Hannah Arendt (Margarete von Trotta, 2013) A biopic of Hannah Arendt, the influential German-Jewish philosopher and political theorist. Arendt's reporting on the 1961 trial of ex-Nazi Adolf Eichmann in The New Yorker, controversial both for her portrayal of Eichmann and the Jewish councils, introduced her now-famous concept of the "Banality of Evil." Using footage from the actual Eichmann trial and weaving a narrative that spans three countries, the director von Trotta beautifully turns the often invisible passion for thought into immersive, dramatic cinema. 113 min. Admission is free.

On October 31, 1517, the Augustinian monk and university professor Martin Luther made his "95 Theses against Indulgences" public.  We do not know for sure whether he nailed his list of questions and propositions for an academic disputation about indulgences to the door of the Wittenberg Castle Church.  What we do know is that the "95 Theses" mark the beginning of the Lutheran movement and the eventual spread of Protestantism around the world.  Following the tradition of early modern academic debates, the participants in this panel will discuss short- and long-term consequences of the religious movement started by Luther five hundred years ago. Panelists include Pia F. Cuneo, Professor,...
