Weinen, Klagen, Sorgen, Zagen

8:00pm to 9:30pm

Location: 

Harvard Art Museums, Adolphus Busch Hall, 29 Kirkland Street, Cambridge MA

This evening’s performance is centered on Johann Sebastian Bach’s cantata Weinen, Klagen, Sorgen, Zagen(Weeping, Lamenting, Worrying, Fearing; BWV 12), which originally premiered on the third Sunday after Easter in 1714. The program begins with a performance of the astounding opening chorus of Bach’s St. John Passion, Herr, unser Herrscher (Lord, Our Ruler). The chorus is followed by a chant-like fragment of Bach’s forebear, Heinrich Schütz’s Johannes Passion from 1666, and a desperately intense 1997 unaccompanied song by the...

From Site to Sight

6:00pm

Location: 

Geological Lecture Hall, 24 Oxford Street, Cambridge, MA

In 1986, the Peabody Museum mounted From Site to Sight, a groundbreaking traveling exhibition on the historic and contemporary uses of photography in anthropology. Using visual materials from the museum’s photographic archives and research by Harvard anthropologists, the recently reissued exhibition catalog investigates how anthropologists have employed the camera as a recording and analytic tool, as well as the broader implications of the uses—and misuses—of visual imagery within the human sciences.

Unseen Connections

6:00pm

Location: 

Geological Lecture Hall, 24 Oxford Street, Cambridge, MA

Cell phones are among people’s most prized possessions. They play an important role in daily life, facilitating everything from communications with others to the recording of social experiences and emotions. Despite the importance and ubiquity of cell phones, few people know how these devices are made or what happens to them after they are discarded. Using an anthropological lens, Joshua Bell will discuss the international network of relations that underpins the production, repair, and disposal of cell phones and the emerging social implications of this network at both global and local...
