Lecture |
Barnard has always been, as Columbia University’s full title has it, “in the City of New York,” but has it always been “of the City of New York”? Professor of history Robert McCaughey says that for much of its first 90 years Barnard resisted the urban essence of its identity, preferring instead to identify with the “country college” sylvan ideal of the other Seven Sisters. Only in the last four decades has the College fully embraced the gritty and energizing implications of its urban setting. How did this change of attitude help Barnard grow into the institution we know today? And what took it so long?

Malcolm X wrote that Fidel Castro “achieved a psychological coup over the U.S. State Department when it confined him to Manhattan, never dreaming that he’d stay uptown in Harlem and make such an impression among the Negroes.” In collaboration with the Malcolm X Museum, this program will explore the impact of Malcolm X’s invitation to Fidel Castro on liberation movements in the African diaspora, and in today’s social climate in the wake of Castro’s death.

Discussion |
In the beginning of the 1990s, New York City had less than 350 units of housing for an estimated 13,000 homeless individuals living with HIV/AIDS. Those left outside were relegated to makeshift encampments or the shelter system, whose physical design—large rooms with rows of beds—allowed colds and infections to easily travel among people with compromised immune systems. In response, four members of ACT UP formed Housing Works. Understanding that housing is a form of health care, the organization has gone on to build over 200 units of permanent and transitional housing, providing vital medical, dental, and mental health care, job training, legal aid, and other supportive services to over 20,000 clients to date. Along the way, the Housing Works confronted NIMBYism in Soho, Harlem, and the Lower East Side; sued the Giuliani Administration and won; opened a popular bookstore/cafe and thrift stores that fund housing and provide jobs; built residential and medical facilities; and never stopped speaking out.Housing Works History is a multimedia timeline that traces these interconnected stories over 25 years. From permanent to transitional housing, and scattered-site apartments to congregate buildings, how were the designs of housing units calibrated to client needs? How did their shape change over time—as medical research advanced and New York City gentrified—and what political challenges persist today?  In this conversation, Housing Works History editor and producer Gavin Browning, filmmaker Laura Hanna, and designer Glen Cummings will be joined by writer Felix Burrichter (PIN–UP magazine) and designer and cultural historian Mabel O. Wilson (Columbia GSAPP).
