    Jim Ryan: A Deep History of the California Institute of Integral Studies

    Jim Ryan: A Deep History of the California Institute of Integral Studies

    This installment of the EWP podcast will conclude our double episode feature on Haridas Chaudhuri and the roots of the California Institute of Integral Studies. This episode features a talk by Jim Ryan, who started teaching at CIIS in 1981, and became core faculty in 1986. He is the former Director of the Asian and Comparative Studies program in the Philosophy and Religion department. Jim takes us on a deep historical and cultural journey, recounting Haridas Chaudhuri coming from Kolkata to San Francisco with the dream of cultivating East-West dialogue and how he established the California Institute of Asian Studies- later becoming the California Institute of Integral Studies. He also speaks of the origins of the East-West Psychology department in those early days of the institution.
    Jim Ryan received his Ph.D. (1985) in South Asian Literature (Tamil) from the University of California, Berkeley. He began teaching at CIIS in 1981, and became core faculty in 1986. He is the former Director of the Asian and Comparative Studies program in the Philosophy and Religion department.
    Jim's general interests are in the culture, history, and philosophies of India. He is specifically interested in the various forms of Hindu tantra, particularly the Kashmir Shaiva traditions, the tradition of Sri Aurobindo, and the "modernized" tantra of Haridas Chaudhuri.
    A secondary interest is in Jainism and the historical interplay between the non-theistic philosophical traditions and Hinduism.
    He is currently working with G. Vijayavenugopal on the third volume of his complete translation of Cīvakacintāmaṇi: The Hero Cīvakaṉ, the Gem that Fulfills All Wishes, by Tiruttakkatēvar, the first time this highly revered 9th century Tamil epic has been translated into any language.

    Facing Failure and the Museum Dedicated to It

    Facing Failure and the Museum Dedicated to It

    Welcome to The Academic Life! In this episode you’ll hear about:

    Why failure is part of the hidden curriculum

    Why you can’t be creative or innovative without failing [sometimes a lot]

    A discussion of the Museum of Failure


    Our guest is: Dr. Samuel West, a licensed psychologist (cognitive behavioral therapy) with a PhD in Organizational Psychology. His research focuses on creating climates for innovation by encouraging experimentation and exploration. In 2017 he founded the Museum of Failure showcasing over a 100 innovation failures from around the world. The aim of the museum is to stimulate productive discussions about the important role of failure for innovation and to increase organizational acceptance of failure.
    Our host is: Dr. Christina Gessler, the co-creator and co-producer of the Academic Life. She previously worked in Museum Education at a small museum in New York; and as a PhD student worked for a professor who was a Smithsonian curator.

    Michael G. Flaherty and K. C. Carceral, "The Cage of Days: Time and Temporal Experience in Prison" (Columbia UP, 2022)

    Michael G. Flaherty and K. C. Carceral, "The Cage of Days: Time and Temporal Experience in Prison" (Columbia UP, 2022)

    Prisons operate according to the clockwork logic of our criminal justice system: we punish people by making them “serve” time. The Cage of Days: Time and Temporal Experience in Prison (Columbia UP, 2022) combines the perspectives of K. C. Carceral, a formerly incarcerated convict criminologist, and Michael G. Flaherty, a sociologist who studies temporal experience. Drawing from Carceral’s field notes, his interviews with fellow inmates, and convict memoirs, this book reveals what time does to prisoners and what prisoners do to time.
    Carceral and Flaherty consider the connection between the subjective dimensions of time and the existential circumstances of imprisonment. Convicts find that their experience of time has become deeply distorted by the rhythm and routines of prison and by how authorities ensure that an inmate’s time is under their control. They become obsessed with the passage of time and preoccupied with regaining temporal autonomy, creating elaborate strategies for modifying their perception of time. To escape the feeling that their lives lack forward momentum, prisoners devise distinctive ways to mark the passage of time, but these tactics can backfire by intensifying their awareness of temporality. Providing rich and nuanced analysis grounded in the distinctive voices of diverse prisoners, The Cage of Days examines how prisons regulate time and how prisoners resist the temporal regime.
    Rachel Pagones is an acupuncturist, educator, and author based in Cambridge, England. Her book, Acupuncture as Revolution: Suffering, Liberation, and Love (Brevis Press) was published in 2021.

Great show

Just finished listening to the interview with Jonathan Metzl. Very good discussion and thought provoking subject. The audio quality could use improvement which is why I'm giving a 4 star rating. I look forward to hearing more from this service.

Great podcast!

This is a great podcast! It covers topics from a different angle and make some very interesting. The episode with the author of the book Exercised has been my favorite so far!

Interesting Podcast Series

I found this series from a sister podcast, "New Books in History." I heard one podcast from each, and find them to be pretty good insofar as the quality of discussion.

But, after listening to the episode "Compass of Pleasure" do have a few complaints.

One is the quality of the interviewers microphone. It was worse than the author she was interviewing and I found it to be pretty distracting. The second was a little more baffling. She either didn't seem that interested, or didn't know how to continue the conversation in a very fluid way. As a result it felt a little bit more like a one-sided lecture than an actual discussion.

I'll continue to listen to the podcast for the titles which interest me, but I hope it gets better by just being easier to listen to.
