Racial Reckoning with Economic Inequities:  Board Diversity as a Symptom and Partial Cure

In response to the racial reckoning related to the killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and other unarmed Black men and women by police during the summer of 2020, many corporations publicly expressed their commitment not only to grappling with racial inequities in the economic sphere, but also to increasing racial diversity on their boards, with particular emphasis on Black directors.  The racial reckoning also spurred the adoption of new board diversity regulations at both the state and federal level.  California became the first state in the country to require publicly held corporations in California to have a minimum number of directors from an "underrepresented community" on their board.  Nasdaq is seeking to adopt new rules requiring all Nasdaq listed companies to have, or explain why they do not have, at least two diverse directors, one who self-identifies as female and one who self-identifies as LGBTQ or an underrepresented minority.  Embedded in these commitments and regulations is an implicit presumption that board diversity advances the call to promote racial equity in the economic sphere, particularly with respect to Black people.  My talk critically examines this presumption, ultimately maintaining that despite some reasons to be skeptical about the link between board diversity and racial equity, board diversity is a necessary though far from sufficient component of the movement to achieve racial equity in the economic sphere.  This is particularly true given that the lack of board diversity is a visible reflection of racial inequities that plague the broader economy. My talk then argues that, notwithstanding promising signals, there remains several significant roadblocks to achieving meaningful progress related to board diversity.  Importantly, many of these roadblocks involve implicit, but too often unchallenged, racial bias and discrimination. To this end, while board diversity is responsive to the call for racial equity, we may be unable to heed that call without an intentional reckoning with racial bias that pervades existing board recruitment and selection practices.

February 6, 2021 - May 1, 2021
Stanley Reads Book Club - Spring 2021
2:00 pm - 3:00 pm (CST)

Stanley Reads puts the museum´s recent exhibitions in conversation with literature. This spring we will read At the End of the Century: Stories of Ruth Prawer Jhabvala and consider connections to the Waswo X. Waswo Collection of Indian Printmaking and other works from the Stanley´s collection.

Stanley Reads is led by Kimberly Datchuk, curator of learning & engagement, and is presented in partnership with Prairie Lights Books.

At the End of the Century: Stories of Ruth Prawer Jhabvala is a posthumously compiled short story collection that addresses family, class, post-Independence India, and the lingering effects of colonialism. The collection is global in scope, covering India, the UK, and New York through vivid characters. Jhabvala writes from the perspective of someone who lived much of her life in India and raised her children there. Her status as a long-time resident coupled with her keen observation gave her access to many parts of Indian life; yet she remained aware of her position as an outsider. 

Ruth Prawer Jhabvala (1927-2013) wrote novels and short stories, but she may be best known for her screenplays for which she received two Academy Awards. Born in Germany, Jhabvala and her family immigrated to the UK in 1939. In 1951, she and her husband Cyrus Jhabvala moved to New Delhi, India. She remained in India for twenty-four years. She frequently wrote about social mores, customs, and Western influence in her adopted country. In 1975, she moved to New York, where she lived until her death in 2013. 

As a companion to At the End of the Century, we recommend Midnight´s Furies: The Deadly Legacy of India´s Partition, by Nisid Hajari. This book will provide further context about post-Independence Indian history from the point of view of someone who was born and lives in India.

Registration required for the event series. Zoom links will be emailed on the Wednesday prior to each event. All who register after that time, will be registered for the following meeting.

Grant Wood Fellow Talk: Elena Smyrniotis
7:30 pm - 8:30 pm (CDT)

Dispossessed

In her talk, Elena Smyrniotis will discuss themes of utopia and human desire for a better world. Her work draws on Sir Thomas More´s idea of Utopia as a remote geographical location, an island or a landscape that displays a visual order of utopia and dystopia in an ambiguous and evocative way. The Island can be discovered anywhere in the ocean, or in the middle of a busy metropolis. Smyrniotis considers physical and mental units for measuring the distance between where we are now and the place called Utopian Island. She contemplates the opposition between two orders-utopia and dystopia-not by separating them but seeing them together at the same time. She considers the two terms within each other in order to feel the extreme intensity of their confrontation, especially in a time when a dystopian future is a real possibility.

Join us on Zoom:  https://uiowa.zoom.us/j/96265709940

Elena Smyrniotis is a printmaking and installation artist with a background in architecture. Her work explores literary and historical utopian ideas through contemplations on the utopian landscape, with a particular focus on architecture, topography, and cartography. She earned an MFA in printmaking from the University of Notre Dame, an MA in printmaking and drawing from the University of Saint Francis, and an MA in Architecture and Engineering from State Petroleum University (Ufa, Russia).

Her recent exhibitions include a solo show at PINEA-LINEA DA COSTA (Rota, Spain), Artlink Contemporary Gallery (Fort Wayne, IN), and the Snite Museum of Art (Notre Dame, IN), where she received the Walter Beardsley Award in 2017. She is a regular participant, and in 2018 was a guest of honor, in the International Art & Design Exhibition at Selcuk University (Konya, Turkey).

Smyrniotis has held fellowships and teaching positions in cultural institutions around the world. Most recently she was a fellow at the Rome Global Gateway in cooperation with the Capitoline Museums, the Hertziana Library, and Geographical Society of Italy in Rome; led a printmaking workshop at the Gems Metropole School in Dubai, UAE; and participated in a painting workshop at the Painting School of Montmiral in Montmiral, France. She has taught printmaking and drawing courses at the University of Notre Dame and the University of Saint Francis, and was the 2019 Visiting Artist at the School of Creative Arts at the University of Saint Francis. She is also a founder and director of the Art and Architectural School for Children (Ufa, Russia).

Iowa and Hollywood´s "Heartland"-The Imagined Publics and Politics of "Flyover" Country
5:00 pm - 6:30 pm (CDT)

Iowa and Hollywood´s "Heartland"
The Imagined Publics and Politics of "Flyover" Country

This talk examines the myth of the Midwest as "Heartland" and the value of this myth to the media industries and broader U.S. culture, particularly as it is energized and privileged as "white space" during election cycles and moments of cultural crisis or upheaval. How have Iowa and Iowans been particularly iconic of this myth? Following up on Heartland TV: Prime Time Television and the Struggle for U.S. Identity (New York University Press, 2008) and building upon subsequent work on sport´s built-environment and "Rust Belt" tourist economies, the talk particularly focuses on intersecting investments of U.S. film, television, and professional sports in the Heartland myth and its ritual resuscitation.

Victoria E. Johnson is Professor of Film and Media Studies and African American Studies at the University of California, Irvine. She writes about the cultural history of U.S. television by examining its popular geographic mythologies, representations of race and place, and sports media. Her books include Heartland TV: Prime Time Television and the Struggle for U.S. Identity (NYU Press) and Sports TV (Routledge, 2021). Heartland TV was awarded the Society for Cinema and Media Studies Katherine Singer Kovacs Book Award in 2009. 

Alfred L. Martin, Jr. will serve as a respondent to Dr. Johnson's lecture. Dr. Martin is assistant professor of media studies and African American studies at the University of Iowa. He is author of The Generic Closet: Black Gayness and the Black-Cast Sitcom and has published in scholarly journals including International Journal of Cultural Studies, Journal of Cinema and Media Studies, Communication, Culture & CritiqueFeminist Media StudiesPopular Communication, and Television and New Media.

Grant Wood Fellow Talk: Johnathan Payne
7:30 pm - 8:30 pm (CDT)

Johnathan Payne: Chronicles of A Queer Abstractionist of Color in the 21st Century

Working across drawing, painting, fibers, and installation, Payne´s work engages traditional and alternative modes of object and image production. His abstractions occupy a space of radical formalism where methodology, experimentation, and craft converge. Payne´s art practice oscillates between-and derives influence from-painting, sculpture, 2D design, and textile arts. Craft-affirming art movements such as Pattern and Decoration, as well as the schools of Bauhaus and Black Mountain College, also underpin Payne´s approach to artmaking. In this lecture, Payne will discuss his art practice in detail, sharing his insights on Queer Formalism, the relationship between Fine Art and Craft, and what it means to be an Abstractionist of Color in the 21st Century.

Join us on Zoom:  https://uiowa.zoom.us/j/91633466459

Johnathan Payne (he/him) is a Queer, African American visual artist currently living and working in Montgomery, AL.

While at Yale, Payne co-curated exhibitions centering marginal identities and their art practices, including Publishing Camp: Queering Dissemination (2017), Queering Space at Yale (2016), and Black Joy (2016). His work has been recently shown at SPRING/BREAK Art Show and Jenkins Johnson Projects (both in New York, NY), the CMPLX (Memphis, TN), and Diane Rosenstein Gallery (Los Angeles, CA). Payne is featured in New American Paintings (MFA Annual #135) and has been published in Observer, Vice, and The New Yorker.  

Payne has served as an AmeriCorps volunteer in Memphis, TN, worked as a Wurtele Gallery Teacher at the Yale University Art Gallery, and taught as an adjunct instructor at the Shintaro Akatsu School of Design at the University of Bridgeport. He received the Gloucester Residency Prize in summer 2017 and was a spring 2020 Artist-in-Residence at Crosstown Arts (Memphis, TN).

And you thought your book club was interesting! The Iowa Bibliophiles, hosted by UI Libraries' Special Collections, get to select from 500 years of legendary works and authors.

The COVID-19 pandemic resulted in a financial exigency which threatens our continued ability to adequately support 24 intercollegiate athletics programs at the desired championship level. With the Big Ten Conference's postponement of fall competition on August 11, UI Athletics now projects lost revenue of approximately $100M and an overall deficit between $60-75M this fiscal year. A loss of this magnitude will take years to overcome. We have a plan to recover, but the journey will be challenging. In that context, we are writing today with some extremely difficult news. In consultation with the Board of Regents, State of Iowa, we have made the decision to discontinue four of our varsity sports programs at the conclusion of the 2020-21 academic year: men's gymnastics, men's and women's swimming and diving, and men's tennis. Each of these teams will have the opportunity to compete in their upcoming 2020-21 seasons, should the circumstances surrounding COVID-19 permit, before they are discontinued at the varsity level. Read the full announcement. If you have any questions about your Athletics donation, please call (319) 467-3410 or email?uiowa@foriowa.org.
