“Commercial Pictures and the Arts and Technics of Visual Persuasion” (Conference/Institute/Seminar)
Title: “Commercial Pictures and the Arts and Technics of Visual Persuasion”
Author: Jennifer Greenhill
Author: Vanessa Schwartz
Author: Alex Taylor
Author: Roger Horowitz
Abstract: The “Commercial Pictures and the Arts and Technics of Visual Persuasion” conference will convene an international group of scholars concerned with the power of pictures in the world of commerce. As pictures became a central feature of the advertising message in the second half of the nineteenth century, they migrated from the pages of newspapers and magazines, and the posters on the sides of buildings, to such technologies as electrical spectaculars, film, and later, television. At the heart of this diffusion was an effort to make the pictorial sales message migrate not only across media but also into the minds of consumers. This conference is part of a two-year initiative on commercial pictures and the art of visual persuasion organized by Jennifer Greenhill (Associate Professor of Art History, USC), Vanessa Schwartz (Professor of Art History and History and Director of the Visual Studies Research Institute, USC), and Alex Taylor (Assistant Professor and Academic Curator, University of Pittsburgh). Roger Horowitz, Director of Hagley’s Center for the History of Business, Technology, and Society, will join the program committee of this conference.

The Slippery Definition of an “Essential” Worker (Article)
Title: The Slippery Definition of an “Essential” Worker
Author: John Patrick Leary
Abstract: newrepublic.com — When the Department of Homeland Security released its criteria for “Essential Critical Infrastructure Workers” in March, it included a dizzying array of jobs across a host of industries: the flight attendants who wash their hands 20 times in two hours as they check seat belts and distribute drinks; the sanitation workers, still making their rounds through infected cities; and everyone along the food supply chain, from immigrant meatpackers to the grocery store workers, line cooks, etc.

The Airy Ambivalence of the Moderate Politician (Article)
Title: The Airy Ambivalence of the Moderate Politician
Author: John Patrick Leary
Abstract: In the summer of 2015, Josh Barro wrote a piece for The New York Times titled “Donald Trump, Moderate Republican.” The real estate magnate was “anything but ideologically rigid,” Barro wrote, “and he certainly does not equate deal making with surrender.” On such issues as taxation and immigration, Trump was “flexible,” vacillating between left and right. The premise seems laughable now, but Barro had a point.

Why Politicians Can’t Stop Talking About “Folks” (Article)
Title: Why Politicians Can’t Stop Talking About “Folks”
Author: John Patrick Leary
Abstract: Any recent history of “folks” in political discourse must begin with Barack Obama, who used the word more than twice as often as any other president, according to a BuzzFeed analysis. When discussing his budget policy in 2012, for example, the president spoke of “folks in the top 1 or 2 percent,” as well as “folks who can least afford” to pay new taxes. Main Street, Wall Street—they are all just folks, in the end

Biden’s Alienating Optimism About the “Future” (Article)
Title: Biden’s Alienating Optimism About the “Future”
Author: John Patrick Leary
Abstract: For most Democratic politicians, the future is a bright investment opportunity. Increasing funding for education is “investing in our future.” Addressing climate change does not mean reining in the fossil fuel industry, but investing in a “clean energy future.” And by investing in “innovation,” a word practically synonymous with “the future” in both business and politics, you prepare yourself to reap the rewards of whatever technological breakthroughs tomorrow might bring.

The Troubling Obsession With Political “Tribalism” (Article)
Title: The Troubling Obsession With Political “Tribalism”
Author: John Patrick Leary
Abstract: Since Donald Trump’s election, political commentators have bemoaned how polarized American politics has become—how angry, how uncivil, how tribal. A few years ago, NYU business professor Jonathan Haidt began seeing a sort of hardwired clannishness in college students. “A funny thing happens when you take young human beings … and you fill those minds full of binary dimensions,” he said.
