"Just the Right Time to Make Such a Collection": Building a Japanese Research Library at Yale in the 1870s

Beginning in the fall of 1875, Yale Library accessioned more than 3,000 woodblock-printed Japanese volumes across a wide range of fields and genres—the first collection of its kind in the United States.

This talk details the involvement of several Yale faculty members, including Addison Van Name, O. C. Marsh, and J. Willard Gibbs, in initiating and funding this undertaking. It also explores the key role played by a group of Japanese students who lived in New Haven in the early 1870s in assembling the collection, shipping it halfway around the world, and cataloging its contents.

Playing With Fire: Incandescent Pedagogies and Critical Politics (Mexico City, 2016-22)

This conference focuses on the ways in which the protest- in particular young feminist and student protest in México City- can be visualized, translated, most of all read and theorized as crucially pedagogical and critically political. Much of what is expressed, drawn, painted during the protest (graffiti, murals, pintas) fades or vanishes below the surface. My aim is to stay with what vanishes and fades, with what is incommensurable or difficult to be narrated or placed together, and may be constitutive of a political discourse or a pedagogical intervention.
