Sanctified Sandals—Polemics and Prophetic Relics in an Era of Technological Reproducibility


Monday, November 10, 2014
Although recent controversies about the historical representation of the Prophet Muhammad have focused on figural paintings, these were relatively rare and circulated in a limited milieu. More commonly, the Prophet was represented metonymically, by depictions of his footprint or sandal, for example. The most famous relic of the Prophet's sandal was kept in Damascus; from the twelfth century onwards, images of this sandal relic were generated by tracing its outline. Such tracings were believed to circulate the blessings (baraka) conferred by this cherished vestige through contact with the body of the Prophet. The copying of the sandal relic continued into modernity, when new print technologies and photography were applied to the reproduction of its image. The deployment of modern technologies of mass (re)production to the circulation of the relic as an image may be related to debates within Islam about the acceptability of relics, shrine veneration and mediation, debates that continue until the present day. However, the ability of mass-produced images to transport and transmit the charisma of the original relic also raises interesting questions about the nature of images, copies and mediation.

Institute of Advanced Theology Advent Lecture Series: Futures of Christianity and the Role of Rabbi Jesus


The Institute of Advanced Theology will be hosting the Fall 2014 Advent Luncheon Lecture Series, "Futures of Christianity and the Role of Rabbi Jesus," led by Bruce Chilton.

Last year our series dealt with the historical development of Christianity; we deployed systems analysis to understand the radical changes that have marked that history. This autumn, our foucs will be on how differing systems of Christianity interact today, and the likely results of their dialogue and conflict.

There will be a five lecture series beginning on Friday, October 3 and continuing on October 10, 17, 24, and 31st. The lecture series will be held at the Bard College Chapel of the Holy Innocents. The presentation begins at 12:30 p.m. followed by a question and answer period. Lunch is at noon and the cost of lunch will be determined at a later date. There is no cost for the lecture.

If you have any questions, please call 845-758-7279 or e-mail iat@bard.edu.

The Thousand and One Futures


Guest lecturer R. John Williams (Yale)

From the mid-1940s to the late-1950s, a new mode of ostensibly secular prophecy emerged from within the authoritative sphere of the American military-industrial-academic complex, spreading quickly throughout the world in technocratic and managerial organizations. This new mode of projecting forward was marked by assumptions about the inherent multiplicity of possible futures as distinct from more powerfully singular visions of “the” future. This presentation tracks the development of this  transformation in two phases: the first computational, secular, and  cybernetic, and the second, narratological, quasi-religious, and generally committed to various "oriental" philosophies.  Questions addressed will include: Is the postmodern era, as some have described it, an “end of  temporality”? Or is the postmodern narrative condition, rather, an intense multiplication of temporal experience? Is it possible that the sheer number of stories we tell ourselves about the future may not be as progressive a practice as we tend to assume it is? How did we arrive at a present with so many possible futures?

Institute of Advanced Theology Advent Lecture Series: Futures of Christianity and the Role of Rabbi Jesus


The Institute of Advanced Theology will be hosting the Fall 2014 Advent Luncheon Lecture Series, "Futures of Christianity and the Role of Rabbi Jesus," led by Bruce Chilton.

Last year our series dealt with the historical development of Christianity; we deployed systems analysis to understand the radical changes that have marked that history. This autumn, our foucs will be on how differing systems of Christianity interact today, and the likely results of their dialogue and conflict.

There will be a five lecture series beginning on Friday, October 3 and continuing on October 10, 17, 24, and 31st. The lecture series will be held at the Bard College Chapel of the Holy Innocents. The presentation begins at 12:30 p.m. followed by a question and answer period. Lunch is at noon and the cost of lunch will be determined at a later date. There is no cost for the lecture.

If you have any questions, please call 845-758-7279 or e-mail iat@bard.edu.

Yom Kippur—The Day of Atonement


Yom Kippur, the Jewish Day of Atonement, will start at sundown this Friday, October 3, and will end Saturday, Oct. 4 at 7:15 pm. We would love to have you participate! Here's what you need to know in advance:

*Evening services start PROMPTLY at 6 pm (not 6 pm "Bard time"!). The fast begins then, so plan an early dinner accordingly!

*Morning services start at 10 a.m. and run about 3 hours. After that, well be hanging out, chatting, reflecting, remembering, and laughing (and most likely talking about food!) all afternoon. At 5:30, we'll start a brief memorial service (Yizkor) followed by Ne'ilah (concluding service) that will end promptly at 7:15.

*At 7:15 we will have a community-wide, pot-luck, vegetarian break-the-fast. Bring vegetarian food if you can, but come whether you have food to contribute or not (there will be plenty for everyone!)

ALL members of the community are warmly invited to attend any parts of the day's observances! It all takes place in Beit Shalom-Salaam, Basement of Village A.

Peter Rosenblum
 Professor of International Law and Human Rights

 


As “corporate social responsibility” enters the mainstream, its
initials "CSR" have become a dirty word for a broad segment of the
engaged public.  The voluntariness, vagueness, and uncertainty of
enforcement  – not to mention blatant propaganda by companies –
overwhelm any positive value, they argue.  At the other end of the
spectrum, CSR enthusiasts insist that it is leading to a new paradigm,
even challenging traditional forms of corporate governance. Oft
overlooked in the debate over CSR is the way in which public campaigns
have driven change and, even more importantly, shaped the mechanisms
that emerge. CSR continues to be as much the story of savvy activists
leveraging global networks as it is the monitoring mechanisms and
codes of conduct -- maybe more so.  Peter Rosenblum will explore the
current debate, drawing on his recently completed research on Indian
Tea plantations and a soon-to-published chapter addressing advocates
and critics of CSR.

Religion Colloquium Series: "Hürrem Sultan: The Slave Who Became Queen of the Ottomans"


Leslie Peirce
Silver Professor of History,
New York University


What is it like to write a biography of someone about whom there is not much concrete evidence but an abundance of innuendo and blame? Known to Europe as Roxelana, “the Russian woman”, she was the slave concubine of Suleyman I (“the Magnificent”), who freed her and made her his wife, breaking multiple precedents to do so. Known as Hurrem among the Ottomans, she was blamed for Suleyman’s most controversial acts, while at the same time she was a great patron of charitable foundations built across the empire. This presentation will discuss some of the challenges and the pleasures of writing for a non-academic audience.

All are welcome!

"Moving from Deference to Insurrection: Compassion with Teeth"


In a recent op-ed, New York Times columnist Nicolas Kristof declared, “There is an income gap in America, but just as important is a compassion gap.” He, like many on the left, invokes compassion as a precondition for moderate reform, let alone societal transformation. Is he right? If so, what might a truly more compassionate America look like? Activist and Buddha On Strike founder Max Zahn will explore how compassion functions in mainstream politics, and explain how a particularly Buddhist notion of compassion can move radical politics beyond demonizing elites and toward altering the structures that empower them. To demonstrate a case study in the efficacy and challenges of intentionally compassionate political action, he’ll draw upon his recent 42-day meditation protest outside Goldman Sachs headquarters.

Christianity as World Religion, from Constantine the Great to Elizabeth I


When the Roman Empire changed its view of Christianity, from persecuting it as a *superstitio* to accepting that it was a *religio*, the Church acclaimed Constantine as an agent of God. He returned the favor by a steady increase of privileges for Catholics, until the Empire became a Christian preserve. Once the connection between Church and State was forged, however, it provoked a series of unintended consequences that included the Reformation. That process saw the emergence of a Protestant empire at odds with Catholic claimants to the mantle of Constantine.

The lecture series begins on Friday, October 4, and continues on the
following Fridays: October 11, 18, 25, and November 1. All lectures in the series are sponsored by the Institute of Advanced Theology and take place at the Church of St. John the Evangelist at 1114 River Road, Barrytown, NY. Lunch is at noon consisting of soup, bread, dessert, coffee and tea at a cost of $6.00. The presentation begins at 12:30 p.m. followed by a question and answer period.

An Interactive Lecture-Demonstration
by Sitar Maestro
Sugato Nag


Pandit (or maestro) Sugato Nag is one of the finest contemporary artistes in the North Indian classical music tradition. A sitar virtuoso, his style presents a unique synthesis of the austere classicism of the Shahjahanpore Sarode Tradition in which he was trained and the intricate beauty of the more modern Imdadkhani Style. His lecture-demonstration will focus on introducing the audience to Hindustani or North Indian classical music, especially with respect to its implementation on the sitar.


All are welcome.

Christianity as World Religion, from Constantine the Great to Elizabeth I


When the Roman Empire changed its view of Christianity, from persecuting it as a *superstitio* to accepting that it was a *religio*, the Church acclaimed Constantine as an agent of God. He returned the favor by a steady increase of privileges for Catholics, until the Empire became a Christian preserve. Once the connection between Church and State was forged, however, it provoked a series of unintended consequences that included the Reformation. That process saw the emergence of a Protestant empire at odds with Catholic claimants to the mantle of Constantine.

The lecture series begins on Friday, October 4, and continues on the
following Fridays: October 11, 18, 25, and November 1. All lectures in the series are sponsored by the Institute of Advanced Theology and take place at the Church of St. John the Evangelist at 1114 River Road, Barrytown, NY. Lunch is at noon consisting of soup, bread, dessert, coffee and tea at a cost of $6.00. The presentation begins at 12:30 p.m. followed by a question and answer period.

"Sex, Religion, and Secular Cunning"


Mayanthi Fernando
University of California & Wesleyan University

How does the public/private distinction so central to secular-liberal democracy inflect the secular state's regulation of sex and religion? Focusing on contemporary France, this talk analyzes how political and legal practices aimed at securing secularity by rendering both sex and religion private paradoxically compel Muslim women to reveal in public the innermost details of their sexual and religious lives. That dual incitement to hide and to exhibit, and the grim consequences of exhibiting that which must be hidden, constitute "the cunning of secular power." 

Mayanthi Fernando is Assistant Professor Anthropology at the University of California, Santa Cruz. She is currently a visiting professor of Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Wesleyan University for Spring 2013. Her first book is Asymmetries of the Republic: Islam, Secularism, and the Future of France, forthcoming from Duke University Press.

Divine and Popular Sovereignty in Islamic Political Thought after the Arab Spring


Andrew March
Associate Professor of Political Science, Yale University

Since the 2011 revolutions in Tunisia and Egypt, political life in those countries has been dominated by so-called "moderate Islamist" parties. These parties proclaim the acceptance of constitutional democracy and political power-sharing, while at the same time endorsing shari'a law as the ultimate source of legitimate power in a Muslim country. This talk approaches the paradox of Islamic democracy through the lens of the concept of sovereignty in contemporary Islamic political theology. What does it mean to hold that both God and the people can be said to be "sovereign" and what unresolved paradoxes remain at the level of theory?
