For over 100 years, the Beaux-Arts beauty known as Grand Central Terminal (a.k.a Station) has been a testament to the ingenuity and ambition of a great city, impressing both travelers and visitors with its wonderful architecture and pulsating vibe. Its history is a story of immense wealth, great engineering, a few accidents, a planned sabotage and one terrific ceiling, but most importantly a story of survival and rebirth.

Symposium |
The school's debate program is collaborating with University of California-Berkeley's debate team to host the first national high school policy debate round-robin for students who center critical black studies in their argumentation and advocacy along with a day-long symposium that brings into conversation the scholars who inspire their arguments.This year's national high school topic is about increasing the U.S.'s economic engagement with China. Many black debaters who are refusing the terms of the topic are diagnosing America and the global economy's material and epistemological submergence in an ocean of anti-black violence as a prime site of intervention.Genres of Speculation: Race, Fantasy, and Finance Capital opens a discussion concerning the modes of fantasy and forecast that lie at the heart of racialized economies of enjoyment and terror while also attending to the forms of imagination and fabulation that strain against these structuring relays of desire, knowledge and violence.  How have enduring matrices of antiblack violence prefigured the epistemological protocols of supposedly "late" capitalism's financial speculations? What qualities of genre and representation are generatively distorted by the speculations pursued by modernity's dispossesed? How can these distortions angle at a future otherwise? Does liberatory or critical imagination and fabulation require an affirmative relation to futurity at all?  Join a daylong symposium on these topics and more with leading scholars in the fields of critical Black studies, education, english, and international economics. Keynote speaker Saidiya Hartman (Columbia University) will close the evening.

Keyboardist Artis Wodehouse will perform on two rare and unique keyboard instruments, the French Art Harmonium from 1903 and the American Harmonium from 1916. The instruments are from her personal collection, and the only such concert-ready harmoniums currently available in the United States.Small, hand-pumped Indian harmoniums are still in use, but large, complex foot-pumped instruments such as Wodehouse will feature in her performance are a rarity today. Though now nearly forgotten, the full-sized harmonium was common throughout Europe and America over a century ago and a large amount of high-quality music was written for it.Pianist and harmoniumist Artis Wodehouse has devoted her career to preserving and disseminating neglected but valuable music and instruments from the past.Wodehouse’s concert will feature music written for the harmonium by composers from Middle and Eastern Europe, the German Sigfrid Karg-Elert, Leoš Janáček of Czechoslovakia, and a new work written by the young Hungarian composer, Balázs Szabó.
