Artistically envisioned and lovingly done, Looking for Langston is an exploration of the life and consequences of late African-American poet Langston Hughes. It is impossible to tell Hughes' story without delving into the social atmosphere in which he thrived. The Harlem Renaissance was in full swing when Hughes found his voice. He represented the unabashed energy of the Cotton Club and the emerging tone of beat poetry. Filmmaker Isaac Julien fuses together a multitude of images to create a patchwork of impressions about the changing gay culture. Archival footage and a jazz soundtrack breathe life into this documentary journey. Looking for Langston has become a favorite within the gay community for its willingness to examine the viewpoint including sexuality and the black experience.

Rich with extraordinary tales and anecdotes, What Are You Looking At? entertains as it arms readers with the knowledge to truly understand and enjoy what it is they’re looking at.

Medieval commentators and modern scholars have observed how monasteries of the tenth to early twelfth centuries experienced long periods of stasis alternating with bursts of rapid development known as reforms.

Knowledge in digital form offers unprecedented access to information through the Internet but at the same time is subject to ever-greater restrictions through intellectual property legislation, overpatenting, licensing, overpricing, and lack of preservation. Looking at knowledge as a commons–as a shared resource–allows us to understand both its limitless possibilities and what threatens it. In Understanding Knowledge as a Commons, experts from a range of disciplines discuss the knowledge commons in the digital era–how to conceptualize it, protect it, and build it.

Concertizing regularly in recitals and concertos throughout Europe and Russia, Ksenia Milyavskaya has been acclaimed as an enormously accomplished violinist “who transforms on the stage into a bright, charismatic and virtuoso soloist” (D.Shapovalov), “that considers her well-developed and fast technique not as a goal but as a tool that allows her to convey the composer’s ideas and thoughts to the public” (A.Farulli). Ksenia is a true representative of the great Russian school of violin. She was born in Volgograd in 1989, and at the age of 4 began her musical path. A year later, on the advice of teachers of the local music school, her family moved to St. Petersburg, where Ksenia was immediately accepted to the class of the professor S.M. Shalman at the Special Music School in St. Petersburg’s Conservatory for gifted children.
