A Message from the Editors of Colloquium

May 31st, 2013 § 0 comments § permalink

q largeDear MAPHers, past and present –

Today is your last chance to register for Alumni Weekend and see what’s going on inside MAPH’s new journal, Colloquium. Colloquium is an online journal run entirely and independently by MAPH alumni and current students.

We’ll be launching our second issue at MAPH’s Alumni Weekend event, and it’s going to be fantastic. Issue 2.1 has Bauhaus, the Italian avant-garde, rebels and militants, sitars and soundscapes, three poets, short fiction, a cat called Mouloud, and a not-inconsiderable amount of spectroscopy.

At the University of Chicago and in MAPH in particular, we joined – for a lifetime – a community of humanists, world-changers, and fierce question-askers. We chase the ineffable and, in one form or another, we chronicle that pursuit. Those chronicles are how we talk together when we can’t talk together. When we founded Colloquium last year, it was to give a home to these chronicles-as-conversations.

The only thing better than having all these conversations happening in one online journal is having them face-to-face. Come and experience Colloquium at Alumni Weekend – or better yet, become a part of it.

 

Bill Hutchison

Founding Editor of Colloquium

My Kind of Town: A Discussion of Police Torture in Chicago

May 17th, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

On Tuesday, May 22nd at 6:00 pm at the brand new Logan Center,  MAPH is co-sponsoring a panel discussion on Chicago police torture.

In moment when the relevance of the humanities is being challenged, it is a great opportunity to have a conversation about what the role of journalism or a play might be in a public dialogue about a serious social concern like torture. We hope this will be the start of future discussion-based events for current students and alumni to keep discussing at the role of the humanities in the academy and the world at large.

The event will feature John Conroy, the Chicago journalist who covered the Chicago police torture scandal, who has now written a play inspired by the cases he covered. His book on torture, Unspeakable Acts, Ordinary People is often taught in courses at the university.  In addition to John, panelists will include CraigFutterman, founder of the Civil Rights and Police Accountability Project at the University of Chicago, Former Chicago Police Superintendent Richard Brzeczek, People’s Law Office founding partner G. Flint Taylor and will be moderated by WBEZ’s Kelly Kleiman.

At the start of the evening actors will perform a scene from the play as a spark for discussion and there will be a period for questions and discussion from the audience. A reception will follow the event.

We hope those living in Chicago will make the time to join us for this conversation.
