Lecture l Yiddish Song in Early Modern Ashkenaz by Dr. Matut
The Magnes – Lecture by Dr. Diana Matut on Yiddish Song in Early Modern Ashkenaz (c. 1500-1750): Sources, Repertoire, Performance The Ashkenazim (Jews of Central and Eastern Europe) have been singing in Yiddish since the Middle Ages. Their historical song repertoires were very different from today's Yiddish songs. Diana Matut's lecture will explore the world of Renaissance and Baroque Yiddish song, and answer a set of specific research questions, such as: What did the Jews of Kraków, Amsterdam, Prague and Frankfurt sing about? Where did their melodies originate, and can they be reconstructed today? Through literary and musical examples, the lecture will also investigate how Jewish and Christian authorities reacted to the texts and melodies of early Yiddish songs, and give a special emphasis to women's singing activities, and female vocal repertoires. Diana Matut, PhD, is a lecturer in Jewish Studies at the University Halle-Wittenberg (Germany). After studying Jewish and Semitic Studies at Halle, she earned a Diploma in Hebrew and Jewish Studies at Oxford University, followed by an MA in Yiddish Studies at SOAS, London. She participated in the Advanced Seminar for Yiddish Studies at JTS – taught in Yiddish. Today, Diana regularly teaches and lectures at universities in Europe and in Israel. Outside of her academic career, Diana is a singer and leader of the band Simkhat Hanefesh (Joy of the Soul), which performs Jewish music and Yiddish songs of the Renaissance and Baroque period. She teaches old Yiddish song and children’s song workshops at Yiddish Summer Weimar and Klekanada and has produced several CDs (e.g. Far dem nayem dor – For the New Generation; simkhat hanefesh - Early Yiddish Music). www.simkhat-hanefesh.com and http://yiddishsummer.eu/de/. This program was made possible in partnership with the following institutions: The Center for Jewish Studies, The Music Department, and GHI West - Pacific Regional Office of the German Historical Institute Washington DC

Journalist Mark Bowden: The Vietnam War’s Turning Point
Commonwealth Club of California – @Mark Bowden, Contributing Editor, Vanity Fair, National Correspondent, The Atlantic, Author, "Black Hawk Down" and "Hue 1968: A Turning Point of the American War in Vietnam" Maj. Gen. Raymond Smith (Ret.), Former Company Commander at the Battle of Hue, United States Marine Corps—Moderator Mark Bowden hasn’t written a book about a military battle since his No. 1 New York Times best seller Black Hawk Down. His most ambitious work yet, Hue 1968 is the story of the centerpiece of the Tet Offensive and a turning point in the Vietnam War. By January 1968, despite an influx of half a million American troops, the fighting in Vietnam seemed to be at a stalemate. Yet Gen. William Westmoreland, commander of American forces, announced a new phase of the war where, he stated, “the end begins to come into view.” The North Vietnamese had different ideas. In mid-1967, the leadership in Hanoi had started planning an offensive intended to win the war in a single stroke. Part military action and part popular uprising, the Tet Offensive included attacks across South Vietnam, but the most dramatic and successful would be the capture of Hue, the country’s cultural capital. At 2:30 a.m. on January 31, 10,000 National Liberation Front troops descended from hidden camps and surged across the city of 140,000. By morning, all of Hue was in Front hands save for two small military outposts. The commanders in country and politicians in Washington, D.C. refused to believe the size and scope of the Front’s presence. Capt. Chuck Meadows was ordered to lead his 160-marine Golf Company against thousands of enemy troops in the first attempt to reenter Hue later that day. After several futile and deadly days, Lt. Col. Ernie Cheatham would finally come up with a strategy to retake the city, block by block and building by building, in some of the most intense urban combat since World War II. With unprecedented access to war archives in the United States and Vietnam and interviews with participants from both sides, Bowden narrates each stage of this crucial battle through multiple points of view. Played out over 24 days of terrible fighting and ultimately costing 10,000 combatant and civilian lives, the Battle of Hue was by far the bloodiest of the entire war. When it ended, the American debate was never again about winning, only about how to leave. Come hear a conversation about this pivotal moment and how it changed the American debate from a discussion on winning to one on how to leave. Bowden, an Atlantic Monthly national correspondent, is an author, journalist, screenwriter and teacher. His book Black Hawk Down was an international best seller that spent more than a year on The New York Times best-seller list. Bowden is also an adjunct professor at Loyola College of Maryland, his alma mater, where he teaches creative writing and journalism. Smith, the program moderator, served actively in the Marine Corps from 1965 until his retirement in 1999. From September 1967 to October 1968, during his first tour in Vietnam, he served with the 1st Battalion 1st Marines in Alpha Company. His personal decorations include the Navy Cross, the Defense Distinguished Service Medal, the Distinguished Service Medal, two Silver Stars, two Legion of Merit awards, the Bronze Star Medal with “V," and three Purple Hearts. Location: Marines’ Memorial Club, the Commandant’s Ballroom, 609 Sutter St., San Francisco Time: 6 p.m. check-in, 6:30 p.m. program, 7:30 p.m. book signing Notes: In partnership with Marines’ Memorial Association All ticket sales are final and nonrefundable

World Without Mind: The Existential Threat of Big Tech
The Art, Technology, and Culture Colloquium – Franklin Foer reveals the existential threat posed by big tech and offers a toolkit to fight their pervasive influence. Elegantly tracing the intellectual history of computer science—from Descartes and the enlightenment to Alan Turing to Stuart Brand and the hippie origins of today’s Silicon Valley—Foer exposes the dark underpinnings of our most idealistic dreams for technology. The corporate ambitions of Google, Facebook, Apple, and Amazon, he argues, are trampling longstanding liberal values, especially intellectual property and privacy. This is a nascent stage in the total automation and homogenization of social, political, and intellectual life. By reclaiming our private authority over how we intellectually engage with the world, we have the power to stem the tide. At stake is nothing less than who we are, and what we will become. In this talk, Foer explains not just the looming existential crisis but the imperative of resistance.

Ehnahre: The Marrow, w/ Bruckmann/Heule/Nishi/Rivero
Center for New Music – Tickets: $15 General, $10 Members Buy Tickets Online Tickets also available at the door The Boston based ensemble Ehnahre has been pioneering an effort to rethink and redefine what metal, extreme, and new music can be since their debut release in 2008, to equal parts acclaim and condemnation for their sins against the tradition. Originally conceived of as a one-off recording project, the artistic success of the first session inspired the group to forge ahead, and it has evolved over time from a weirdo death metal outfit into an extreme new music ensemble that employs an unlimited variety of techniques, instrumentation, and atmospheres. While the ensemble retains a vestigial tail of their formative elements, they are always in search of innovative and interesting new approaches, concepts and projects to give life to. On their current tour, Ehnahre will be performing music from their newest and most adventurous record to date, The Marrow, with core members Ryan Mcguire (vocals, contrabass), Richard Chowenhill (guitars), and Joshua Carro (percussion, electronics). Opening will be the newly-formed, soon-to-be-named, Black Gagaku quartet of Kyle Bruckmann (oboe/English horn/electronics), Jacob Felix Heule (percussion), Kanoko Nishi (koto), and Danishta Rivero (voice).
