Seth Berkman, ‘The Hen Crows: How a Group of Korean Women’s Hockey Players Redefined Perceptions of the Peninsula’

In Korea there is a saying: “If the hen crows, the household collapses.” This refers to the centuries-old belief that women are to be subservient to men, much in Confucian tradition. When South Korea hosted the Winter Olympics in 2018, a group of formerly unknown hockey players forever changed the perceptions of women in Korea and what a unified peninsula could resemble. South Korea’s women’s national hockey team, which became largely remembered as the Unified team after adding 12 North…

Małgorzata Mazurek, “Economics of Hereness: The Polish Origins of Global Developmentalism 1918-1968”

This talk will address the east-central European origins of development concepts that came to dominate the postwar world. Treating social science as a situated phenomenon, shaped by the twentieth century’s violent politics, Malgorzata Mazurek aims to explain why and how developmental thought became the key instrument of defining, building and contesting new nation-states in Europe after World War I—and then globally after World War II. At the core of her discussion is a close-knit group of Polish economists, mostly Jewish.…

Jennifer Allen, ‘Twentieth Century Anti-Utopianism and Its West German Antidote’

A melancholic thread in assessments of the end of the Cold War, the triumph of liberal democracy and capitalism over “really existing socialism” led academics and public intellectuals to pronounce the end of utopian ambitions. Some West Germans, however, resisted this logic and refused to abandon hope for a superlative existence. But they also recognized that old paradigms of utopian thought had lost their currency, jettisoning the conviction that society marched incrementally and inexorably toward an ideal form. Instead, they…
