September 18 to 20 - Global Women’s Cinema Conference   The Humanities Institute at Stony Brook (HISB) is hosting a groundbreaking conference this September that will bring together scholars and filmmakers from around the world to investigate the politics, aesthetics and economics of women’s cinema, focusing on the ways this cinema engages contemporary scenarios of global change. “Global Women’s Cinema: Transnational Contexts, Cultural Difference and Gendered Scenarios,” will be held September 18 through September 20 at the Humanities Institute (Room 1008) and at the Hilton Garden Inn.

September 23, 2014 - Poet, essayist and critic Vijay Seshadri, winner of the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Poetry, will give a reading on Tuesday, September 23, at 4 pm in The Poetry Center on the second floor of the Humanities Building. He is the author of three collections of poetry: 3 Sections, which was awarded the Pulitzer; The Long Meadow, which won the James Laughlin Award; and Wild Kingdom. The Pulitzer committee described 3 Sections as “a compelling collection of poems that examine human consciousness, from birth to dementia, in a voice that is by turns witty and grave, compassionate and remorseless.”The event — sponsored by The Poetry Center, Department of Cultural Analysis and Theory, Department of English, Humanities Institute and Mattoo Center for India Studies — is free and open to the public.
