Jeanine Michna-Bales and Clarissa Sligh, artists. For more than forty years, artist Sally Mann has made experimental, elegiac, and hauntingly beautiful photographs that are all bred of a place, the American South. Using her deep love of her native land and her knowledge of its fraught history, Mann asks provocative questions—about history, identity, race, and religion—that reverberate across geographic and national boundaries. On view from March 4 through May 28, 2018, Sally Mann: A Thousand Crossings considers how Mann’s relationship with this land has shaped her work and how the legacy of the South—as both homeland and graveyard, refuge and battleground—continues to permeate American identity. On May 20, 2018, in conjunction with the exhibition, artists Jeanine Michna-Bales and Clarissa Sligh share their processes of reimagining and representing histories of African Americans. The program focuses on their recent projects. Michna-Bales’s Through Darkness to Light: Seeking Freedom on the Underground Railroad is a remarkable series of images taken in the dead of night that reveal historical sites, cities, and other places freedom seekers passed through, including homes of abolitionists who offered them sanctuary and a place to rest during daylight hours. Sligh’s Transforming Hate: An Artist's Book evolved from an exhibition in which the artist created sculpture by folding origami cranes from pages of white supremacist books. This program is made possible by the James D. and Kathryn K. Steele Fund for Photography.
Teen slang from the South, and food words that are tricky to pronounce. High schoolers in Huntsville, Alabama, give Martha and Grant an earful about their slang -- including a term particular to their hometown. All we can say is: Don't be a "forf"! And: How do you pronounce the name of that tasty Louisiana specialty: Is it JUM-buh-lye-yah or JAM-buh-lye-yah? And which syllable do you stress when pronouncing thespice spelled T-U-R-M-E-R-I-C? Finally, the word spelled W-A-T-E-R is of course pretty simple . . . so you might be surprised it can be pronounced at LEAST 15 different ways! Plus gnat flat, looking brave, vog, Russian mountains, high hat, whisker fatigue, chi hoo -- eh, fuggedaboudit! http://waywordradio.org

Because of the close proximity to Washington DC and Richmond, Virginia, much of the Civil War would take place in eastern Virginia—between the two capitals. Virginia’s favorite son, Robert E. Lee, would be offered command of the Union army only days before resigning his U.S. army commission and accepting a position in the Confederate army. The war in Virginia began with a few minor skirmishes following the Union occupation of Alexandria and Arlington. Chris Calton recounts the controversial history of the Civil War. This is the tenth episode in the third season of Historical Controversies. You may support this podcast financially at Mises.org/SupportHC.

John Elderfield, chief curator emeritus of painting and sculpture, Museum of Modern Art, New York, and Allen R. Adler, Class of 1967, Distinguished Curator and Lecturer, Princeton University Art Museum. Bringing together some 60 paintings drawn from collections around the world, Cézanne Portraits is the first exhibition devoted exclusively to this often-neglected area of Paul Cézanne’s work. His portraits were widely thought to be shockingly inept when they were first exhibited, but were understood by a small circle of artists and critics to be extremely radical works. In this lecture held on June 3, 2018, at the National Gallery of Art, John Elderfield discusses how Cézanne’s extended, methodical style of painting—“one stroke after the other” is how the artist described it—readily led to the creation of one painting after the other of the same subject. Elderfield also explains how indifferent Cézanne was to the “personality” or “character” of his sitters—long thought to have been necessary aims of portraiture—wanting simply to paint the objective, permanent presence of someone seen. Cézanne Portraits, in its sole American venue at the National Gallery, is on view through July 1, 2018.

In the early 21st century there was hope that the success of the mumps vaccine in the United States would pave the way for the eventual elimination of the highly contagious disease. But since 2006 there's actually been a resurgence of mumps. In this week's podcast Yonatan Grad, assistant professor of immunology and infectious diseases, explains how the waning effectiveness of the vaccine may be contributing to outbreaks of the virus.
Usually, awkwardness gets thrown around as a personality trait,as in, "I hate parties because I'm so awkward." Or, "I have a hard time meeting new people because I'm awkward." But this week, This week, Savvy Psychologist Dr. Ellen Hendriksen discovers that Melissa Dahl, journalist and author of Cringeworthy: A Theory of Awkwardness, looks at awkwardness in a different way: as an emotion. And that’s a feeling we can all relate to, whether we’re Sheldon Cooper, Michael Scott, or you or me.

There is an art to making science fun and entertaining. Bill Nye has done it, and so has Neil deGrasse Tyson. Maybe now it’s time for a woman? For this episode of the EdSurge On Air podcast, we’re joined Sophia Shrand, host of the comedic YouTube show, “Science with Sophie.” “Science with Sophie” mixes a bit of feminism with science, a difficult combination of things to put together in a comedic fashion. EdSurge talked with Shrand about her comedic history and how educators can learn from her work, making science entertaining.
Lucas Engelhardt explains the many contributions of an early precursor to not only the Austrian school but to the whole of economic thought, Juan de Mariana of the 16th century Spanish scholastics. Mariana’s book On the King and the Royal Institution stressed the importance of remembering that kings are under a greater natural moral law and ought to be punished when they violate it. Mariana distinguished between a tyrant and a king by how the ruler viewed the property of his citizens. As regards to the exchange value of money, Mariana understood the value was determined by the supply and demand of money so that debasement of the currency led to rising prices. Engelhardt also explains Mariana’s understanding of subjective valuation.

Die vermeintlich sozialpolitische Wende des völkischen Teils der AfD unter Höcke sorgt genauso für Furore wie die Ankündigung aus dem Umfeld von AfD und Neuer Rechter, bei den Betriebsratswahlen im März mit eigenen Listen antreten zu wollen. Die Diskurspiraterie von rechts ist nicht neu, aber der rasante Aufstieg der Rechten scheint die politische Linke gegenwärtig häufig ratlos zu machen. Auch deshalb, weil die Rechte an Formen der Politik anknüpft, die vermittelt über das Jahr 1968 bisher als links galten. Wie kann, wie soll der Umgang mit den "Angstmachern" von rechts und den rechten Strategen einer "Querfront" aussehen. Gibt es tatsächlich einen rechten Antikapitalismus, wie unterscheidet er sich von der Linken und welche Bedeutung hat er für die Rechte? Wie reagiert eine Linke, wenn sie mit Formen politischer Intervention konfrontiert ist, die aus ihrem eigenen Reservoir stammen? Diese und weitere Fragen wurden mit den Autoren Richard Gebhardt ("Querfront"? Zur Kapitalismuskritik und Diskurspiraterie der Neuen Rechten, in: Das Argument, Nr. 323, 2017) und Thomas Wagner ("Die Angstmacher. 1968 und die Neue Rechte") diskutiert.
