Black Earth: The Ecological Politics of the Holocaust

We are accustomed to seeing the Holocaust as exceptional, as indeed it was. Butprecisely because of its unprecedented horror, we need to know as much as we canabout its causes. Hitlers ideology, on which we tend to focus, only cohered ina domestic setting where panic about resources could seem plausible, and couldonly be implemented beyond Germany in places where German powerdestroyed conventional institutions. It seems easy to distance oneself fromhateful ideas; focus on the structural causes reveals how ideology could andcan function, and reveals the risks we might face in a world of state collapseand climate change.

Timothy Snyder is the Bird White Housum Professor of History at Yale University, specializing in the history of central and eastern Europe. He is the author ofBloodlands: Europe Between Hitler and StalinandBlack Earth: The Holocaust as History and Warning, among others.

The Role of Interconnectivity in Control of an Ebola Epidemic by Prof. Julie Blackwood

Mathematics Faculty Seminar

Abstract: Several West African countries - Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea - experienced significant morbidity and mortality during the largest Ebola epidemic to date, from late 2013 through 2015. The extent of the epidemic was fueled by outbreaks in large urban population centers as well as movement of the pathogen between populations. During the epidemic there was no known vaccine or drug, so effective disease control required coordinated efforts that include both standard medical and community practices such as hospitalization, quarantine and safe burials. Due to the high connectivity of the region, control of the epidemic not only depended on internal strategies but also was impacted by neighboring countries. In this talk, I will introduce a deterministic framework to examine the role of migration between two populations in the overall success of practices designed to minimize the extent of Ebola epidemics. I will demonstrate that even small amounts of intermixing between populations can greatly impact how controllable the epidemic can be.

Lecture - White City Black City: Architecture and War in Tel Aviv and Jaffa

Lecture by Sharon Rotbard

The history of Tel Aviv, presented for a moment as an architectural history, can be seen as a part of a wider process in which the physical shaping of Tel Aviv and its political and cultural construction are intertwined, and plays a decisive role in the construction of the case, the alibi, and the apologetics of the Jewish settlement across the country.
White City, Black City
In 2004, the city of Tel Aviv was declared by UNESCO a World Heritage Site, an exemplar of modernism in architecture and town planning. Today, the Hebrew city of Tel Aviv gleams white against the desert sky, its Bauhaus-inspired architecture betraying few traces of what came before it: the Arab city of Jaffa. In White City, Black City, the Israeli architect and author Sharon Rotbard offers two intertwining narratives, that of colonized and colonizer. It is also a story of a decades-long campaign of architectural and cultural historical revision that cast Tel Aviv as a modernist white city emerging fully formed from the dunes while ignoring its real foundationthe obliteration of Jaffa. Rotbard shows that Tel Aviv was not, as a famous poem has it, built from sea foam and clouds but born in Jaffa and shaped according to its relation to Jaffa. His account is not only about architecture but also about war, destruction, Zionist agendas, erasure, and the erasure of the erasure.

Rotbard tells how Tel Aviv has seen Jaffa as an inverted reflection of itselfnot shining and white but nocturnal, criminal, dirty: a black city. Jaffa lost its language, its history, and its architecture; Tel Aviv constructed its creation myth. White City, Black Cityhailed upon its publication in Israel as path-breaking, brilliant, and a masterpiecepromises to become the central text on Tel Aviv.

https://mitpress.mit.edu/books/white-city-black-city

Sharon Rotbard, an Israeli architect, author, and publisher, is Senior Lecturer in the Architecture Department at Bezalel Academy in Jerusalem and Chair of Architecture at the CARE School of Architecture in Tiruchirappalli, Tamil Nadu, India.
