Discussion |
Cities across the globe are facing more frequent and more punitive natural disasters. At the same time, the U.S. federal government is showing reduced interest in and support for resiliency planning and recovery, making the efforts and leverage of local communities all the more critical.  This panel will convene representatives from academia and government and practitioners in the field of disaster recovery and resiliency to address the strategies behind and implications of community-based resiliency (broadly considered). Using Superstorm Sandy as the context, panelists will reflect on the successes and challenges of past efforts and discuss strategies for moving forward. The panelists include: Drew Curtis from Ironbound Community Corporation (Newark, NJ); Michelle de la Uz from Fifth Avenue Committee (Brooklyn); Erika Lindsey from the NYC Mayor's Office of Recovery and Resiliency; and Leigh Graham from CUNY; moderator: Rachel Meltzer, Assistant Professor of Urban Policy Analysis and Management.

Greenwich Village is among Manhattan's most desirable and expensive residential neighborhoods. It's history, however, betrays it's monied status. The Village, with it's quiet, shaded streets, lined with lovely brick and brownstone townhouses, was once the incubating ground of artistic, social and political movements that have helped shape US history. From the Beats to the Folk Movement, from workers rights to gay rights, the Village has often been the center of it all.

In Evolution's Bite, noted paleoanthropologist Peter Ungar brings together cutting-edge advances in understanding human evolution and climate change with new approaches to uncovering dietary clues from fossil teeth to present a remarkable investigation into the ways that teeth—their shape, chemistry, and wear—reveal how we came to be.

In this wonderful piece of narrative nonfiction inspired by a fait divers, Jablonka delivers a masterful investigation on the figure of Laëtitia that calls upon sociology, journalism, psychology, and justice. He focuses on her volatile childhood – spent bouncing between a violent alcoholic father, a depressive mother, and foster care – on her daily life under the authority of an abusive social worker, and on her dreams for a future that would not come to be. While accounting for the markers of Laëtitia’s story, Jablonka reveals something much larger about the time we live in, about our values, and the social and political system in which we evolve.

A ninth-grade dropout who found himself at the center of the worlds of industry, advertising, theater, and even gaming, Norman Bel Geddes designed everything from the first all-weather stadium, to Manhattan’s most exclusive nightclub, to Futurama, the prescient 1939 exhibit that envisioned how America would look in the not-too-distant sixties. In The Man Who Designed the Future, B. Alexandra Szerlip reveals precisely how central Bel Geddes was to the history of American innovation. He presided over a moment in which theater became immersive, function merged with form, and people became consumers. A polymath with humble Midwestern origins, Bel Geddes’s visionary career would launch him into social circles with the Algonquin roundtable members, stars of stage and screen, and titans of industry.

As part of the interdisciplinary event series Ursula Block’s gelbe MUSIK – 33 Years in Review highlighting the history and archive of experimental music of the sound art curatorial pioneer, Ursula Block participates in a listening session and conversation with curators Fiona McGovern and Justin Luke. Over its 33 years in existence gelbe MUSIK, Block’s unique record store and gallery,  functioned as an important meeting ground for musicians, composers, visual artists and choreographers from all over the world. Artists such as Maryanne Amacher, Henning Christiansen, Romuald Hazoumé, Christina Kubisch, Christian Marclay, Nam June Paik, and Akio Suzuki are among the many artists Block worked with, often presenting their first show in Germany. In addition to programming at gelbe MUSIK, Block was involved in a number of exhibitions dedicated to artist’s records in a variety of locations throughout the mid-1980s. In 1989 Block worked with Michael Glasmeier to co-curate the influential and crucial exhibition Broken Music at daadgalerie, Berlin. Its title was taken from Milan Knížák, whose concept of the same name served as a leading motto for Block. The accompanying Broken Music catalogue is still considered to be one of the most extensive of its kind. About two-thirds of the records listed there are in Block’s collection. The event series Ursula Block’s gelbe MUSIK – 33 Years in Review is curated by Fiona McGovern and Justin Luke, and is presented in collaboration with the Goethe-Institut and OSMOS.Back
