Bright ideas lit up the Radcliffe Institute in 2012.
Margot Livesey RI '13 delivers the 2012–2013 Julia S. Phelps Annual Lecture in Art and the Humanities with introductory remarks by Claire Messud RI '05.
In this lecture, Larry M. Bartels assesses how well V. O. Key's optimistic portrait of the American electorate holds up in light of the subsequent half-century of electoral research.
Radcliffe Institute fellow Ingrid Monson delivers a lecture about Neba Solo, Mali's superb balafonist, and the social and cultural history of Mali. Monson—the 2012–2013 Suzanne Young Murray Fellow at the Radcliffe Institute and the Quincy Jones Professor of African American Music at Harvard—is writing a book about Neba Solo titled "Kenedougou Visions."
Neba Solo presents a concert of his virtuosic xylophone music and his socially conscious lyrics. Playing with his brother, Siaka Traoré, Neba Solo debuts his most recent composition, which calls for peace in Mali. In his lyrics, one can trace the history of the political and social problems that led to the collapse of the Malian government in March 2012.
Alma Guillermoprieto RI '07 delivers the Schlesinger Library's 2012–2013 Maurine and Robert Rothschild Lecture.
