Rukmini Callimachi: ISIS, Journalism, and the Internet
April 3, 7pm

New York Times foreign correspondent and three-time Pulitzer Prize–finalist Rukmini Callimachi is widely acknowledged as one of the preeminent reporters on Al Qaeda and the Islamic State. She draws on her in-depth knowledge of the militant group to examine the pervasive effects of the internet both as a journalistic tool and political weapon.

Claudia Rankine: Notes on The White Card
April 10, 7pm

Author of innovative and thoughtful texts on race, selfhood, and contemporary American life, Claudia Rankine is a powerful and influential cultural force. Join Rankine as she reads and reflects on her recently published play, The White Card, which unpacks the insidious ways racism manifests itself in everyday situations and questions how our society can progress if whiteness stays invisible.

Don’t miss Rankine’s new performance with Will Rawls, What Remains, March 7–9, in the McGuire Theater.

Mark Kingwell: Boredom and the Interface
April 17, 7pm

Are you bored of the endless scroll of your social media feed? Do you skim articles on your screen in search of intellectual stimulation that never arrives? Philosopher and critic Mark Kingwell examines the pressing issues of screen addiction and the lure of online outrage—raising the possibility that current conditions are creating hollowed-out human selves.

Ed Atkins: I (can scarcely move or draw my breath)
April 24, 7pm

British artist Ed Atkins will “attempt an adequate recitation of American novelist Gilbert Sorrentino’s poem ‘The Morning Roundup’ (1971), with songs and histrionics throughout,” as he describes. The artist is known for computer animated videos that sit unsteadily between sentimentality and grim realism. Atkins’s Happy Birthday!! (2014) is on view in the new exhibition The Body Electric, opening March 30.

The Mack Lecture series is made possible by generous support from Aaron and Carol Mack.

Talking Dance with Meg Stuart
April 13, 1pm

Join choreographer Meg Stuart for an intimate conversation within the gallery installation of Celestial Sorrow, her new Walker commission.

Presented as part of the Gertrude Lippincott Talking Dance Series, made possible by generous support from Judith Brin Ingber.
