    This lecture was given on March 14, 2022 at Yale University. The handout for this lecture can be found here: https://tinyurl.com/u74wk4hb. For more information on upcoming events, please visit our website at www.thomisticinstitute.org. About the speaker: Carlos Eire, who received his PhD from Yale in 1979, specializes in the social, intellectual, religious, and cultural history of late medieval and early modern Europe, with a focus on both the Protestant and Catholic Reformations; the history of popular piety; and the history of the supernatural, and the history of death. Before joining the Yale faculty in 1996, he taught at St. John's University in Minnesota and the University of Virginia, and was a member of the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton for two years. He is the author of War Against the Idols: The Reformation of Worship From Erasmus to Calvin (1986); From Madrid to Purgatory: The Art and Craft of Dying in Sixteenth Century Spain (1995); A Very Brief History of Eternity (2010); Reformations: The Early Modern World (2016); and The Life of Saint Teresa of Avila: A Biography (2019). And he is co-author of Jews, Christians, Muslims: An Introduction to Monotheistic Religions (1997). He has also ventured into the twentieth century and the Cuban Revolution in the memoir Waiting for Snow in Havana (2003), which won the National Book Award in Nonfiction in the United States and has been translated into more than a dozen languages. His second memoir, Learning to Die in Miami (2010), explores the exile experience. A past president of the Society for Reformation Research, he is currently researching attitudes toward miracles in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. His recent book Reformations won the R.R.Hawkins Prize for Best Book of the Year from the American Publishers Association, as well as the award for Best Book in the Humanities. It was also awarded the Jaroslav Pelikan Prize by Yale University Press. All of his books are banned in Cuba, where he has been proclaimed an enemy of the state – a distinction he regards as the highest of all honors.

    Welcome back for another episode of Nick's Non-fiction with your host Nick Muniz! A haunting tale of human resilience and hope in the face of unrelieved horror, Albert Camus' iconic novel about an epidemic ravaging the people of a North African coastal town is a classic of twentieth-century literature. The townspeople of Oran are in the grip of a deadly plague, which condemns its victims to a swift and horrifying death. Fear, isolation and claustrophobia follow as they are forced into quarantine. Each person responds in their own way to the lethal disease: some resign themselves to fate, some seek blame, and a few, like Dr. Rieux, resist the terror.

    Ep 150: For Men: New Sex Techniques to Blow Her Mind with Writer Habeeb Akande. This is a must-listen-to episode! It's epic! This episode is geared towards heterosexual men, but heterosexual women will benefit from listening as well. Habeeb Akande, who is a sex expert, historian, and public speaker, shares amazing relationship-improving advice for in the bedroom and out. He shares a special technique practiced in eastern Africa (such as in Rwanda and Kenya) that leads to a very high percentage of women squirting and much sexual pleasure. We chat about the goal of sex, whether that be sexual pleasure, orgasm, or female ejaculation, these are three different things, and of course, we include male ejaculation in this. We must acknowledge the goal of sex is highly subjective and individual. Habeeb shares the culture behind a technique called Kunyaza, which is the secret to female pleasure, and a sexual act that also meets male needs.  This technique is also one that can teach a man ejaculation control while keeping the focus on mutual pleasure. He discusses the sex positive practices for sex education in this culture where Kunyaza is practiced, which also includes inducing the feelings of emotional safety, emotional intimacy, and emotional security. Habeeb and I chatted about the sexual culture of the western world and Europe and how porn that stems from these societies can be both helpful and harmful. He shares with us information he has gathered during his ten years of writing and teaching men about a sex-positive and pleasure-filled approach to sex with their partners. We talk about the needs of men and women and the mutual rights to sexual pleasure and satisfaction. We reiterate the common belief that communication is paramount for all relationships.Find Habeeb Akande's books on Amazon (affiliate):Kunyaza: The Secret to Female Pleasure https://amzn.to/3G4XhyRWomen of Desire: A Guide to Passionate Love and Sexual Compatibility https://amzn.to/3wAnJNXA Taste of Honey: Sexuality and Erotology in Islam https://amzn.to/3wzR6zYIlluminating the Darkness: Black and North Africans in Islam https://amzn.to/3MCvJ6rIlluminating the Difference: Black, White, and Brown Women https://amzn.to/3Lx7gOMInstagram: http://instagram.com/habeeb_akandeAll Habeeb's links: https://linktr.ee/habeebakandeAlso, check out  Habeeb on The Orgasm Gap BBC documentary.Hello!

    Greenlight welcomed author, scholar, and activist Grace Lavery to our (virtual) stage for the launch of Please Miss: A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Penis—a “memoir” like nothing you've ever read before. Part literary theory, part musical theater parody, part feminist sci-fi reboot, Please Miss was hailed by author Torrey Peters (Detransition, Baby) as a “can't-look-away performance of wit, language, irreverence, and delight”, and by Carmen Maria Machado (In the Dream House) as “the queer memoir you've been waiting for; a dizzying mix of theory and pastiche, metafiction and memory… hilarious and sexy and terrifying in its brilliance.” In a scintillating conversation with Elif Batuman (The Idiot) that covered everything from finding one's voice through the process of transitioning to gendered roots of the word memoir, Lavery graced us with her singular brilliance.

Japan Restored by Clyde Prestowitz is written as a vision of Japan in the year 2050 when the country's economic recovery has made it a world leader in every area of human endeavor. Prestowitz looks back to the present year as such a low point for Japan that a special reform commission was set up that helped the country regain its former position as a leader in technology, in business, and geopolitically. Looking at education, innovation, corporate organization, energy, infrastructure, and international alliances Prestowitz draws up a fascinating and controversial blueprint for the future success of Japan.

    Dr. Joan Smoller is a creative non-fiction writer, a writing coach, a former lecturer at NYU, and author of three books.She's also written for multiple high-profile publications in the United States, including the New York Times. In this interview, she talks about the power of non-fiction, how writers could use it to inspire social change and what non-fiction has done for her over the years. Joan demonstrates that a writing career can be diverse. She has taught, instructed, edited, has prepared multimillion-dollar grant proposals, has written about topics like skin cancer, and has run a successful writing program. In other words, the genre or subject that you're writing about today doesn't necessarily have to be the genre or topic that you will pursue tomorrow.Joan talks about advice she gives her students: the importance of writing every day and the value of freewriting. I was delighted when Joan mentioned free writing because I've used it on and off over the years. If you're not familiar with freewriting, Joan describes how to apply it, and she also gives some tips which can help you get over a fear of self-judgment. Joan has some great advice to help you get over the fear of self-judgment and what other people think.

    When Rachel Krantz met and fell for Adam, he told her that he was looking for a committed partnership—just one that did not include exclusivity. In her nonfiction debut, Open: An Uncensored Memoir of Love, Liberation, and Non-Monogamy, Krantz explores these questions with an unflinching eye and page-turning storytelling, tracing her search to understand what non-monogamy would do to her heart, her mind, and her life through interviews with scientists, psychologists, and people living and loving outside the mainstream. For the book's virtual launch, Krantz joined us along with Jen Winston, author of Greedy, for a frank and heartfelt conversation on non-monogamy, bisexuality, “stigmatization, feeling too much yet not enough of an identity, and struggling through the accidental poetry of everyday life” (--K., Greenlight event host)--and a resounding reminder to write the book you need to write.
