A prominent theology professor and author, Margaret Farley stirred controversy within the Catholic Church for her 2012 book Just Love: A Framework for Christian Sexual Ethics. Pope Benedict XVI and the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith warned the faithful of the “risks of grave harm” from Farley’s book. In this lecture, Farley will approach issues of gender, sexuality, and ethics from historical vantage points, and explore contemporary insights and questions. She will offer a basis for “development” in philosophical, scientific, and religious understandings of sexual ethics, applicable in secular, cultural, and religious traditions.    New York City, NY; NYC

Talk |
New York Times food critic and cookbook author Melissa Clark helps us untangle a century-old gastronomic mystery. In 1901, an enterprising Lower East Side restaurant keeper named Hinde Amchanitzky published America’s first Yiddish language cookbook. Mysteriously, eight years after Hinde’s death, a “new and augmented edition” of her cookbook, a departure from the original in both tone and content, appeared in neighborhood bookstores. From schmaltz-laden noodle puddings and stuffed breast of veal to “hygienic” bread and celery cutlets, the two cookbooks could hardly be written by the same woman. Or were they? Jane Ziegelman, author of 97 Orchard, and Annie Polland present the culinary clues--translations of the recipes, newspaper ads, and food samples from the cookbooks as we try to solve the mystery, and at the very least, learn more about immigrant women and cooking.    New York City, NY; NYC

Tony-winning director Daniel Sullivan returns with one of the Bard’s most rarely produced plays, Troilus and Cressida. Both warriors and lovers play hard to get in this surprisingly modern epic about the hot blood, hot thoughts and hot deeds of the ancient Greeks. In the 7th year of the Trojan War, Troilus, a young prince, pines for the affections of Cressida, a bright young woman who knows how to play it cool. Meanwhile, the heroes of the Iliad – Ajax, Ulysses, Achilles and the kings they serve - debate whether to return the dangerously beautiful captive Helen or continue to fight without end. Nations and lovers alike do battle in this funny, piercing drama about romance and revenge in a world at war.    New York City, NY; NYC
