Last Night is based on the 118 songs played by New York musical host David Mancuso on June 2, 1984, at one of the last parties of the 99 Prince Street location of his seminal New York dance party, the Loft. The film shows each record played that night in sequence, from beginning to end, on a vintage turntable in a domestic atmosphere. The complete progression of songs lasts approximately thirteen hours, offering an intimate sonic journey that mirrors a particular night at a particular moment in time.March 23, 11am-6pmMarch 24-25, 11am-1am

The physical geography of a place can have a major impact on political stability and human well-being. Are certain landscapes more prone to armed conflict? How can we reverse this impact and contribute to sustaining peace? This panel brings together four expert scholars and practitioners in peace and security to explore the roles that landscape and spatial understanding play in making and sustaining peace in communities around the world. They will discuss geography's role in the challenge of terrain, state formation, and conflict through interwoven disciplines of history, journalism, international security, and anthropology to consider how our understanding can be used to set the conditions for sustainable peace.Featuring:Judith Matloff, Author & Journalism ProfessorPaul Gillingham, Historian of Modern Mexico & AuthorDipali Mukhopadhyay, Author & Assistant Professor of International and Public AffairsAldo Civico, Author, Anthropologist, & Conflict Resolution Lecturer (moderator)

Arguably the world's most valuable, busiest and most crowded pieces of real estate, Midtown Manhattan is what most visitors think of when they think of New York City. Home to some of the city's most iconic architecture, from Gothic to Post-Modern and from Beaux-Arts to Art Deco (lots of Art Deco). it's not difficult to understand why. But just behind the massive facades, lie facinating histories just waiting to be unveiled.

The passage of the 1947 Japanese Fundamental Law on Education appeared in its time as a triumph for Japan’s fledgling postwar democracy and as proof that Japan's new mode of separating religion from the state was working. By 2006, however, legislators had significantly revised the law to allow for the teaching of “religious culture education” in Japan’s public schools. In this talk, Dr. Jolyon Thomas will argue that the postwar disaggregation of religion and public school education inaugurated by the FLE was always tenuous, and he will show that a surprising combination of clerics, scholars of religion, and nationalistic lobbying groups vigorously collaborated to bring religion back into public schools in a constitutionally valid and socially acceptable way.

With a growing population of college-educated, second-generation children of immigrants joining the labor force, it is necessary to examine how young professionals navigate the work world, and the extent to which race and ethnicity play a role in their career paths. However there is limited research on this issue, particularly about the privatized, corporate world where ethnic minorities and racial discourses are less visible, and the politics of promotion, attrition, hiring, and firing are less transparent. Forty Asian Americans working in finance in New York City were interviewed over the course of 12 months and observed at bars after work with colleagues and personal friends, to begin to understand the implications of race as it pertains to institutional politics in corporate America from the perspective of the employee. Preliminary examination of the data suggests gatekeeping practices in the corporate system are discrete and veiled by a corporate culture emphasizing success through meritocracy, which downplays the salience of race. Thus the nature of corporate culture and its relationship to racial inequality at the work place needs to be further examined. Speaker Margaret M. Chin was born and raised in New York City and is herself a child of Chinese immigrant parents. She is currently an Associate Professor of Sociology at Hunter College and the Graduate Center. Margaret received her BA from Harvard University and her PhD from Columbia University. She is currently a Faculty Associate of the Roosevelt House Public Policy Institute, and a member of the CUNY Mapping Asian American New York group, and the CUNY Asian American/Asian Research Institute.

This exhibit intends to offer an interpretation of Thomas Jefferson's relationship with Italy, which he saw under two different lights. On the one hand, he looked to classical architecture, which he considered eternal and universal, and which he came to know through Palladio's plates and many other sources from his rich library. On the other hand, he looked to the ever-changing Italian landscape to inspire him in the creation of the rural America he dreamed of.

One of the most momentous works in modern theatre history started as an archiving project. In 1974 a group of “Gypsies” (Broadway dancers) gathered together along with choreographer/director Michael Bennet to record oral histories about their lives. By the summer of 1975 Marvin Hamlisch, Ed Kleban, James Kirkwood, Jr. and Nicholas Dante transformed these stories into a genre-redefining Broadway hit that would go on to be the first Olivier Award winning musical. This is a conversation with original members of the cast and crew of A Chorus Line, illustrated by artifacts from the Library’s archives.

The Bolshevik Revolution of 1917 triggered a radical shift in the modernist paradigm, which prompted Russian avant-garde artists to abandon abstract experimentation and turn to photography and photomontage. They created an archive of revolutionary imagery, and after 1924 – a new corpus of memorial photomontages on Lenin. The sheer number and variety of the Constructivists’ photomontages on Lenin and the revolution demonstrates their desire to escape a single, party-imposed, narrative of revolutionary events. The photomontage project was a project of continuous revolution, of changing ideological meanings, and transgressing the boundaries of modern art. The panel will focus in particular on the junction between photomontage and poetry, and explore the concept of avant-garde photo-poetry, as well as El Lissitzky’s concept of the “architecture of a book.” The panelists with further elaborate on the creation of a visual language of Soviet photomontage in the 1920s and 1930s, in its close interrelationships with Western avant-garde developments. They will discuss a broader problem of artistic intervention in politics. Can and should art influence political and social development? Does political message destroy the aesthetic component of art? What does it mean when the aesthetic becomes political?

Darwinian biology is often held up as a heteronormative framework. Natural law theologians who are pro-Darwin see it as a way to glorify straightness, cisness, and heteropatriarchal norms. But a closer examination of Darwinian thought–both within Darwin’s research and subsequent developments in evolutionary theory–shows that Darwin can be coupled with contemporary queer and trans* theory. Darwin is a passionate partisan of difference, becoming, vital materiality, and the diversity of desire.With: Donovan Schaefer, Lecturer in Religion & Science, Trinity College, University of Oxford, United Kingdom

In S as in Samsam artist Sowon Kwon's point of departure is the homophonic coincidence between the diminutive forms of the English/Hebrew proper name "Samuel" and the abbreviated Korean honorific for "Teacher" (샘), both Romanized as "Sam". In 샘 an intimacy and almost familial endearment is suggested by sustained and effective mentorship. Episodic in structure, Kwon's ruminative essay engages linguistic play and the hyperlinked logic of the search engine as it inevitably bumps up with TV sitcom witches and stalwart hobbits to personifications of the American government and national identity (Uncle Sam), in its consideration of teaching and learning, the idiomatic and the subtextual, the personal and the intersectional.

After moving in together, the need to protect themselves is intensified when their newfound lack of space -- and its effect on their sex life -- becomes unbearable. As a result of visiting Eddie’s once-estranged father at a vintage bowling alley in North Carolina, the couple are forced to confront their relationship to their bodies, and their parents’ bodies.
