It is here, as much as anywhere, where American history started. It's where the first US Congress assembled and produced the Bill of Rights and where President George Washington took his first oath of office. It's here where the world's most important stock exchange and one of the most famous bridges stand. And it is here where an unspeakable tragedy took place and where a rebirth is underway.

Colloquium |
This event focuses on "proliferation" as a feature of contemporary social and political interaction that the digital sphere facilitates. Early sociologists like Gabriel Tarde and Emile Durkheim were interested in crowds and their all-absorbing mentality that could overpower rational thought and action in individuals. Proliferation, or the overwhelming abundance of some phenomenon, is thus construed as a uniquely modern experience. The speakers on this panel consider the affective response social media elicits and the profusion of information we encounter in contemporary society. Together they discuss how contemporary media has the ability to obscure meaning and how we arrive at the selection of what is made to mean.  The afternoon program is in the hands of a hypnotist who will determine what we do as a public.  Participants:  - Dominic Pettman (pictured), Professor of Culture and Media at Eugene Lang College and Chair of the Liberal Studies Program - Hugh Raffles, Professor of Anthropology and Director, Graduate Institute for Design, Ethnography, and Social Thought - Deva Woodly, Assistant Professor of Politics

BFA Visual and Critical Studies presents an evening with Gregg Horowitz, professor of philosophy at Pratt Institute. Horowitz will discuss the formal adventures of hoarding: the compulsive inability to discard possessions. To what extent can the hoarder’s melding of overvaluation and indifference cast light on artistic practices that strive to save things from the esteem and disesteem characteristic of standard hierarchies of value? Artists discussed will include Alighiero e Boetti (pictured), Agnes Martin, and Paul McCarthy. The evening will conclude with a brief Q+A.

Giacomo Casanova was a product of 18th-century Venice's culture of sensuality and Enlightenment. Today his name is synonymous with “great lover”—and for good reason. Over the course of his lifetime Casanova claimed to have seduced more than one hundred women. Notorious for his insatiable libido and rakish behavior, the full story of Casanova's life is much less well known.Biographer Laurence Bergreen will speak with author and psychosexual therapist Dr. Ruth Westheimer about his new biography Casanova: the World of a Seductive Genius. Beginning with Casanova's troubled childhood in Venice, Bergreen reveals Casanova's meteoric rise from impoverished child of the lower classes to the famous writer, notorious libertine, and self-invented genius whose name still resonates today. Throughout, Bergreen's portrait of a crumbling Venetian empire sets the scene to explain the man who was truly a product of his place and time.
