Animate California: The Soul of the Golden State in Image, Myth, and Place
This video offers, not sightseeing, but soulseeing through California in a quest to understand the presence, spirit, or soul of the Golden State and its cities and regions through reflection on the recurring images and mythologies found here. It considers the question: In what sense are landscapes actually soulscapes? How do the places where I live and work subtly interact with me such that I unknowingly repeat their geological patterns and historic events? And what does it mean to come deeply home?
The video also serves as an introduction to terrapsychology, the study of our deep and usually unconscious connections to the places where we live and work and the things and creatures that inhabit them. Terrapsychology goes beyond surface cause-effect relations (how sunlight affects mood, for example) to look at how landscapes, weather, and nature sculpt our ideas, our habits, our relationships, and even our cultures and sense of self. Whether we know it or not, we speak, walk, and breathe the discourse of world, terrain, and place all the time, their jagged ridges roughening our smooth speeches, their rivers sweeping our ideas downstream, their skyscrapers beckoning us to heights of fame and hubris, their polluted harbors darkening our moods, their sanctuaries offering us islands of precious sanity.

Day and Night - Professor Franco Moretti
The Department of Comparative Literature at King’s College London recently organised the Franco Moretti Lecture series in June 2017. This lecture is titled Day and Night: On the counterpoint of Western and film noir”.
Professor Franco Moretti’s work has fundamentally changed the way we think about literature, arguing for a novel conception of Comparative and World Literature that goes well beyond the mere accumulation of authors and works.
A Folklorist's Tale: Stories of Tangible Culture, Intangible Culture & the Politics of Culture
Folklorist and scholar Barbara Kirshenblatt-Gimblett drew from her multifaceted career to explore the role of folklore in shaping contemporary cultural discourse. Specifically, she discussed her experiences as chief curator charged with creating the multimedia narrative exhibition at the recently opened POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews. How did she approach blending intangible cultural heritage with tangible cultural artifacts to tell the thousand-year story of Polish Jews in a place where little tangible heritage remains? What were the political and cultural challenges in bringing this history to life? And how did her training as a folklorist influence and shape her curatorial decisions?
Speaker Biography: Barbara Kirshenblatt-Gimbett is distinguished professor emerita of performance studies at New York University and served as chief curator of the core exhibition at the recently-opened POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews in Warsaw. Originally from Toronto, she received her doctorate in folklore from Indiana University and began a multifaceted career in both academic and public sector work.

C.S. Giscombe: The Racial Mountain
This lecture will consider some aesthetic and racial underpinnings of literary production, especially in terms of “experimental” or “difficult” texts. In particular, Giscombe will address the question of what happens and what’s at stake when contemporary North American poets of color claim literary ancestry, especially when such ancestry includes white writers, both those “of good will” and those whose work exhibits racist thinking.

The Evolutionary Mind (Full Trialogue)
Stimulating and often startling discussions between three friends, all highly original thinkers: Rupert Sheldrake, controversial biologist, Terence McKenna, psychedelic visionary, and Ralph Abraham, chaos mathematician. Their passion is to break out of paradigms that retard our evolution and to explore new possibilities.
Through challenge and synergy they venture where few have gone before, leading their readers on an exciting journey of discovery. Their discussions focus on the evolution of the mind, the role of psychedelics, skepticism, the psychic powers of animals, the structure of time, the life of the heavens, the nature of God, and transformations of consciousness.
