    Craig L. Symonds – World War II at Sea: A Global History

    6:00 PMHunter College

    PROGRAM

    Please join us at Roosevelt House as we welcome Craig L. Symonds, one of America’s most acclaimed naval historians, to mark the publication of his new book, World War II at Sea: A Global History, a complete narrative of the naval war and all of its belligerents, on all of the world’s oceans and seas, between 1939 and 1945. Symonds, Professor Emeritus at the United States Naval Academy, will be in conversation with Harold Holzer, the Jonathan F. Fanton Director of Roosevelt House. Professor Symonds, whose previous books include Lincoln and His Admirals, winner of the Lincoln Prize, and The Battle of Midway, named the best book of the year by Military History Quarterly, offers a global perspective on the war, focusing on the scale and interconnection of all the major engagements, including Pearl Harbor, Midway, the landings in North Africa and then Normandy, as well as small-scale assaults and amphibious operations. Symonds also draws fresh portraits of the roles and personalities of the notable naval leaders of all nationalities – F.D.R. and Churchill, as well as Karl Dönitz, Isoroku Yamamoto, and other Allied and Axis commanders. Symonds combines precision with story-telling verve,  illuminating not only the mechanics of large-scale warfare on – and below – the sea, but offering insight into the unique nature of World War II itself.

    Pasolini’s Lasting Impressions: Death, Eros, and Literary Enterprise in the Opus of Pier Paolo PasoliniEdited by Ryan Calabretta-Sajder

    06:30 pm - 08:00 pmQueens College

    Noted as a 'civil poet' by Alberto Moravia, Pier Paolo Pasolini was a creative and philosophical genius whose works challenged generations of Western Europeans and Americans to reconsider not only issues regarding the self, but also various social concerns. Pasolini's works touched and continues to inspire students, scholars, and intellectuals alike to question the status quo. This collection of thirteen articles and two interviews evidences the on-going discourse around Pasolini's lasting impressions on the new generation.

    Pasolini's Lasting Impressions: Death, Eros and Literary Enterprise in the Opus of Pier Paolo Pasolini thus explores the civic poet's oeuvre in four parts: poetry, theatre, film, and culture. Although the collection does not include every genre in which Pasolini wrote, it addresses many, some which often receive little or no attention, particularly in Italian Studies of North America. The underlining theme of the book, 'death, eros and literary enterprise' intertwines these genres in a rather unique way, allowing for inter-disciplinary interpretations to Pasolini's rich opus.

    The edited volume concludes with two artists, Dacia Maraini and Ominio71's reflections on Pasolini in the 21st century. In fact, the cover represents a recent work on Ominio71 underscoring Pasolini's visual presence still within the Roman walls. In conclusion, this collection demonstrates how his works still influence contemporary Italian society and motivate intellectual dialogue through new theoretical outlooks on Pasolini's oeuvre.
