Although world famous, Harlem may be New York's best kept secret with some of the city's best architecture, food, music and people. Harlem's history is also one of the city's most dramatic, having gone through many ethnic, cultural and socioeconomic changes over the past roughly 400 years, which have resulted in a diverse array of places of worship, theaters, homes and eating establishments.

In 1799, a prosperous New York merchant named Archibald Gracie built a country house overlooking a bend in the East River, five miles north of the then-New York City limits. Little did he know that, more than 200 years later, his home would be serving as the official residence of the First Family of New York City - a place where history is made, not merely recorded. As a historic house museum run by the Parks Department, sitting on 11 acres of grounds now known as Carl Schurz Park, Gracie Mansion has served as the home of 10 mayors, beginning first with Mayor Fiorello H. La Guardia in 1942. Today, Gracie Mansion is occupied by the de Blasio family, which has opened its doors in the spirit of the administration's motto: one city, rising together. In keeping with that theme, Mayor de Blasio and First Lady Chirlane McCray have introduced a new art installation, titled “Windows on the City: Looking Out at Gracie’s New York.” Tours take place every Tuesday at 10am, 11am, 2pm, and 3pm until Dec. 12, 2017.

The first account of a forgotten attempt to reform the sodomy laws in 1820s Britain. At the center of these events was a small group of men who were members of Parliament, who strongly identified with their feelings of same-sex desire, who explicitly wrote that such feelings were inborn and natural in them, and who based their political activism (ie: their lobbying of fellow parliamentarians to end the death penalty for sodomy) on this self-understanding. This book will demonstrate how these men’s identity was a product of their particular time, place, and circumstances, and will not attempt to displace the arguments for the late nineteenth century as the point of origin for what we think of as a modern gay identity.

The election results on November 8th stunned a large portion of the American public. The angry, nationalistic rhetoric of Trumpism won out despite doubts from across the political spectrum that the erratic candidate at the center of the movement could win the presidency or govern effectively. In the sweep of American history, however, the Trump phenomenon is neither novel nor uncommon. This talk looks closely at the political genealogy of the 45th president of the United States.Lecturer: Jelani Cobb

Set in the Cork criminal underworld, McInerney shines a light on the darkest corners of contemporary Ireland, and has celebrated writers praising it at every turn.
