Conference | Full of Your Glory: Liturgy, Cosmos, Creation

Sponsored by: Yale Institute of Sacred Music

The conference will explore ideas of creation and cosmos embedded in the worship life of the church at a time of unprecedented attention to ecological and cosmological concerns. Conference speakers will highlight some of the rich traditions of the past (ritual, visual, and musical, among others) and also address contemporary concerns.  The broader aim of the conference is to offer the resources of the liturgical tradition—and its particular insights—to the ongoing conversations around ecology and cosmology. It will become clear that liturgy has always been about more than human beings at worship: specific understandings of creation and the cosmos are in fact at the heart of all Christian worship.

Conference schedule and speakers list forthcoming.

Registration required. See event website for more details.

April Lunchtime Book Discussion at the Derby Public Library

Sponsored by: Derby Public Library

Monsieur Perdu calls himself a literary apothecary. From his floating bookstore in a barge on the Seine, he prescribes novels for the hardships of life. Using his intuitive feel for the exact book a reader needs, Perdu mends broken hearts and souls. The only person he can’t seem to heal through literature is himself; he’s still haunted by heartbreak after his great love disappeared. She left him with only a letter, which he has never opened. The Little Paris Bookshop is a love letter to books, meant for anyone who believes in the power of stories to shape people’s lives.

Lunchtime Book Discussions are held on the last Wednesday of the month and are free and open to the public. Multiple copies of the book will be available at the circulation desk.

Drop-ins are welcome—no registration required. For further information contact the Reference Desk at 203-736-1482.

The Art of Subtitling

Sponsored by: Yale Film Study Center

One of the most important parts of film restoration today is also one of the most overlooked: subtitling. Subtitles, introduced in the early 1930s, were first added sparsely to foreign films, the belief being that people didn’t go to the movies to read. In recent years, new technology has allowed them to be sharper than ever, both visually and textually. Film Forum repertory programmer and Rialto Pictures co-founder Bruce Goldstein will give a history of translation and subtitling in the movies and his own insights as subtitle editor of over 30 classic films, including LE TROU, IL BOOM, PANIQUE, THE BATTLE OF ALGIERS, GRAND ILLUSION, and GODZILLA. Then Mistral Artist’s Jerome Rudes, subtitle supervisor of over 200 films, will give a subtitling Master Class, showing how new computer software has helped make subtitles better than ever and how the skillful subtitler can subtly convey the full meaning of foreign language dialogue, in as few words as possible.

March Lunchtime Book Discussion at the Derby Public Library

Sponsored by: Derby Public Library

This memoir is a powerful account of growing up in the rust belt of Ohio and in an Appalachian town in Kentucky. The author escapes generations of poverty becoming a marine and Yale Law School graduate. This is a probing look at the struggles of America’s working class. The Vance family story begins in postwar America. J. D.’s grandparents were “dirt poor and in love,” and moved north from Kentucky’s Appalachia region to Ohio in the hopes of escaping the poverty around them.

Ron Howard is directing and producing a movie adaptation of the book, which was a New York Times best-seller.

Lunchtime Book Discussions are held on the last Wednesday of the month and are free and open to the public. Multiple copies of the book will be available at the circulation desk.

Drop-ins are welcome—no registration required.  For further information contact the Reference Desk at 203-736-1482.

It glows with the light of a Flemish painting and the spirit of magic realism.” 35mm print from the Yale Film Archive.

From the Kitchen to the Capitol - Amazing Women of Connecticut

Sponsored by: Milford Public Library

Connecticut women who revolutionized American cooking, defied a government that taxed them but denied them the vote, and shattered a political glass ceiling will be highlighted in the presentation “From the Kitchen to the Capitol: Four Feisty Connecticut Women” by author Diana Ross McCain on Saturday, March 24, at 2 p.m. at the Milford Public Library.
  McCain will draw on her book It Happened in Connecticut for inspiring stories about remarkable women from three centuries of the state’s past.  In the late 1700s one wrote a cookbook that for the first time included recipes for foods indigenous to America, such as turkey and cranberries, that have become standards of the nation’s dinner tables. In the 1800s two elderly sisters became unlikely international champions of the fight for women’s suffrage. In the twentieth century a daughter of immigrants became the first female to fill a governor’s chair in her own right.  All of these varied accomplishments required extraordinary vision and determination.
  Diana Ross McCain is an independent historian who has been researching, writing, and speaking about Connecticut history for more than 35 years. She holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees in history, and was on the staff of the Connecticut Historical Society in Hartford for 25 years. She is the author of five non-fiction books on Connecticut history.
  Following the talk, copies of It Happened in Connecticut, as well as several of McCain’s other books, will be available for purchase and autographing.

The Body Project

Sponsored by: Designing Their Future

100 years ago a woman’s beauty was focused on good deeds and having a pure heart. Fast forwarding to today, American women have more social choices and personal freedom than ever before. However, 53% of today’s girls are dissatisfied with their bodies. By the age of thirteen girls begin a pattern of weight loss obsession and dieting as early as eight or nine. How a girl feels about herself and her body can be complicated. There are many factors that can contribute to unhealthy body image, one beginning with puberty to then later be followed by school, friendships, relationships, to family issues. The growing pains are a balancing act which can lead our teens to lose themselves along the way. So what can we do to change it? What can we do to lessen the pressure of our saturated society with the unrealistic expectations about beauty and weight? How do break through? The breakthrough begins by educating, empowering, and inspiring our girls. By
giving them the space to redefine their confidence and end body shaming. Together girls and women can conquer self-doubt, set healthy boundaries, accept & respect their bodies.

Banners Project Workshop with artist Aliza Shvarts

Sponsored by: Artspace New Haven

Organized by Artspace in collaboration with Nasty Women Connecticut: Silence Breakers and The Ely Center of Contemporary Art.
Each of us has had a moment of public or semi-public exposure that sticks with us. Perhaps it was a moment when we tried to express an opinion, testify to a personal experience, or stand up on behalf of another. Perhaps this moment was a unique experience of overexposure, or perhaps it was part of a systemic pattern of being at once hyper-visible yet unheard.
To participate in this workshop, please come prepared to share a moment in your own personal “digital life”, in which you have felt overexposed. For example, this could include a Facebook post or tweet that went viral (or got a lot of attention), an email that circulated beyond your intended audience. This event is open to Nasty Women and their allies. Registration is free, but spaces are limited and available on a first come first serve basis. If you have questions, contact Sarah Fritchey at sarah@artspacenh.org.

often be broken into small, bite-sized
pieces that follow a few simple rules
and cause surprising results. Join us

concept called “emergence.” We will
be learning how to look for patterns
in the world around us, how basic
