  • 2018-10-01 12:00:00 2018-10-01 13:15:00 Nazi Racism and Interracial Marriages: How the Nazis Treated Jewish and Japanese Spouses <p>Christian W. Spang<br />Nazi Racism and Interracial Marriages:How the Nazis Treated Jewish and Japanese Spouses<br /><br />In Mein Kampf (1924), Hitler had suggested a three-fold division of races, designating the Japanese as merely “culture-bearing” and thus inferior, positioned between the allegedly superior “culture-creating” Aryans and the “culture-destroying” Jews. This essentially became official policy after the Nazi rise to power in January 1933. The Nuremberg Race Laws of September 1935 changed the above-mentioned system into a binary one, singling out the Jews as the only subordinate race, elevating all others to an unofficial (and insecure) “honorary Aryan” status.<br />Following a short introduction to the position of the Japanese within Hitler’s race system and the Nazi’s admiration of Japanese “racial purity”, this talk is going to take a closer look at some of the problems Japanese-German couples (and their children) faced during the Nazi era. The main focus of this talk will be on such couples living in Japan. The Japan branch of the Nazi Party (Landesgruppe Japan) excluded Jews as well as many Germans married to Japanese from the German community (Deutsche Gemeinde). Yet, they made a distinction between those who had married before 1933/35 and those who either married or wanted to marry afterwards. The latter group was exposed to extreme Nazi agitation. Even during the “Axis” years, when Japan and the Third Reich were allies, the Nazis made every effort to prevent such marriages. These actions expose a strong feeling of racial superiority even vis-á-vis Nazi Germany’s main wartime ally.<br /><br />Christian W. Spang got his PhD in 2009 from Freiburg University in Germany for his dissertation Karl Haushofer und Japan, published in 2013. He has been researching and teaching in Japan since 1998. After three years at Tsukuba University (2009-2012), he moved on to Daito Bunka University in Tokyo, where he is professor for German Studies and German-Japanese relations. Currently, he is visiting professor at the Japanese Department of Friedrich-Alexander-University (FAU) in Erlangen, Germany (https://www.japanologie.phil.fau.de/personal/lehrstuhl-i/christian-spang/). Over the last 20 years, he has extensively published about German-Japanese relations and is co-editor of German-Japanese Relations 1895-1945, published with Routledge in 2006, and Transnational Encounters between Germany and Japan, London: Palgrave 2016. He is also the co-editor of the autobiography of a German Jew who lived in Kobe during the Nazi era: Heinz Altschul: “As I Record These Memories …”, 2014. In March 2018, his latest book Karl Haushofer und die OAG, was released by Iudicium in Munich.<br /><br /></p> 2101 E. Coliseum Blvd Fort Wayne, IN America/Indiana/Winamac

  • 2018-10-26 12:00:00 2018-10-26 13:00:00 Facingness Meets Mindedness: Dissecting the Two Works of Édouard Manet <p>Purdue University Fort Wayne's 2018-2019 Distinguished Lecturer Series presents art critic and historian Michael Martin Fried. Fried's contribution to art historical discourse involved the debate over the origins and development of modernism.<br /><br />During the summer and fall of 1868, Edouard Manet painted two remarkable pictures &#8211; the Luncheon in the Studio and The Balcony. Both pictures have long been puzzling to commentators: Manet’s paintings have often struck art critics and indeed ordinary viewers as almost defiantly unintelligible in narrative or dramatic terms, and that is true with a vengeance of the Luncheon and The Balcony. In this lecture, Michael Fried offers a detailed analysis of both pictures, relating them to Manet’s enterprise generally and also to the particular historical moment of their creation.<br /><br />Fried's contribution to art historical discourse involved the debate over the origins and development of modernism. Along with Fried, this debate's interlocutors include other theorists and critics such as Clement Greenberg, T. J. Clark, and Rosalind Krauss. <br /><br />He began his career as an art critic while still a graduate student, writing monthly New York Letters for Art International. In the spring of 1965, he organized a major exhibition at the Fogg Art Museum at Harvard of works by three contemporary painters, Kenneth Noland, Jules Olitski, and Frank Stella. In 1966-67 he organized the first retrospective exhibition of paintings by the late Morris Louis (Los Angeles, Boston, and St. Louis), and in 1969 a mid-career retrospective of sculptures by Anthony Caro (the Hayward Gallery, London). His early art criticism, including catalog essays, is collected in Art and Objecthood: Essays and Reviews (1998).<br /><br />https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Fried<br /><br /><br />Friday, October 26<br />12 pm | Refreshments<br /><br />Walb Student Union<br />Classic Ballroom<br /><br />Title: “Facingness meets Mindedness: Édouard Manet<br />’s Luncheon in the Studio and The Balcony.”<br /><br />During the summer and fall of 1868, Edouard Manet painted two remarkable pictures &#8211; the Luncheon in the Studio, today in the Neue Pinakothek in Munich, and The Balcony, in the Musée d’Orsay, Paris.
