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.

Conference |
The astral science was among the most developed bodies of knowledge in the ancient world. A complex and interrelated system of astronomical observation, astral rituals, divination and physiognomy was developed in Greece, India and China. While each civilization cultivated this knowledge along its own cultural trajectory and each system contained features unique to its own, there were moments when their paths crossed and ideas cross-fertilized and hybridized. This conference is concerned with the traditional lore of the cosmos and its evolution in South and East Asia, and how the astral knowledge of the “West” was received in the “East” in the pre-modern world.

PROGRAM:Richard Strauss (1864 – 1949) Tod und Verklärung (Death and Transfiguration)About the composerRichard Georg Strauss was a leading German composer of the late Romantic and early modern eras. He is known for his operas, which include Der Rosenkavalier, Elektra, Die Frau ohne Schatten and Salome; his Lieder, especially his Four Last Songs; his tone poems, including Don Juan, Death and Transfiguration, Till Eulenspiegel's Merry Pranks, Also sprach Zarathustra, Ein Heldenleben, Symphonia Domestica, and An Alpine Symphony; and other instrumental works such as Metamorphosen and his Oboe Concerto. His compositions became standards of orchestral and operatic repertoire.Strauss, along with Gustav Mahler, represents the late flowering of German Romanticism after Richard Wagner, in which pioneering subtleties of orchestration are combined with an advanced harmonic style.

Tied up in the courts for years, reporter Sue Summer keeps the controversial James Brown Estate case involving politicians, lawyers, and a charity on the front page. The American soul music legend James Brown, who died in December 2006, left his entire estate, more than $100 million, to educate poor children in South Carolina and Georgia. More than ten later, not a single penny has reached those children. The reason: dozens of lawsuits, powerful judges have it out in a case involving race, class, marriage, and wild accusations, with lawyers collecting millions in legal fees, paid out of Brown’s estate.Sue Summer of The Newberry S.C. Observer has followed the case from the beginning. Come meet her with Kevin Flynn of The New York Times, Journalism Professor Charles Seife, and Distinguished Writer in Residence James McBride as the four discuss the reporting challenges of one of the most controversial music cases in recent years.Refreshments to be served following the discussion.

Littorals and archipelagos are in many ways itinerant, overlapping territories—whose affiliations to empires, states, or sectarian entities are multifocal, contested, and constantly shifting. The Swahili coast of eastern Africa exemplifies this phenomenon: its port cities and towns have long functioned as global contact zones, where diverse societies meet and exchange ideas, commodities, and cultural traditions. This lecture will focus on the material fabric of daily life in East Africa’s oceanic cities, showing how they are simultaneously chronotopes of modernity and memorials to ancient histories of transcultural reciprocity and competition, overturning the prevailing notion that we can easily divide the study of African cities into before and after colonization. From the vantage point of the Swahili coast, the current fascination with transnationalism is simply the newest iteration of a complex struggle to control the crossings of people, ideas, and things in a fluid world.With: Prita Meier.

Judy Collins has inspired audiences with sublime vocals, boldly vulnerable personal life triumphs, and a firm commitment to social activism. In the 1960s, she evoked both the idealism and steely determination of a generation united against social and environmental injustices. Five decades later, her presence shines brightly as new generations bask in the glow of her 50-album body of work and heed inspiration from the spiritual discipline that has helped her to thrive in the music industry for half a century. The award-winning singer-songwriter’s rendition of Joni Mitchell’s “Both Sides Now” from her landmark 1967 album, Wildflowers, has been entered into the Grammy Hall of Fame. Her version of “Send in the Clowns,” a ballad written by Stephen Sondheim for the Broadway musical A Little Night Music, won Song of the Year at the 1975 Grammy Awards.Her most recent book, Cravings, is a no-holds-barred account of her decades-long struggle with compulsive overeating and of the journey that led her to a solution. Alternating between chapters on her life and those of the many diet gurus she has encountered along the way (Atkins, Jean Nidetch of Weight Watchers, Andrew Weil, to name a few), the book is the culmination of Judy’s genuine desire to share what she’s learned—so that no one else has to navigate her heart-rending path to recovery.

Bela Shayevich, translator of Svetlana Alexievich's Secondhand Time, will translate. Victoria Lomasko is a fixture at Moscow's trials and protests, documenting the tumultuous processes that shape today's Russia. Not content to limit herself to the political life of the country's capital, Lomasko travels around the country and through the former Soviet republics, exploring the domestic, psychological, and spiritual condition of its diverse marginalized groups. Sex workers in Nizhny Novgorod, women in underground lesbian clubs, teachers in a remote village school, and children at the juvenile prison colonies where Lomasko volunteers as an art teacher have been some of the subjects of her sensitive, incisive portraits.

"Design thinking" has wormed its way into fields ranging from heavy manufacturing to high technology. But how was design thinking invented? So far, the story has been incomplete, muddled or, even worse, boring. In this talk, presented by MA Design Research, Writing and Criticism, award-winning design journalist Cliff Kuang will read a chapter from his book User Friendly, which is forthcoming from Farrar, Strauss, and Giroux. He will reveal a largely forgotten history, involving the terrors of Communism and the hippie idealism of 1960s California. Speaker Cliff Kuang is the head of digital product at Fast Company, where he works on UX and product strategy. Previously, he was design editor at both WIRED and Fast Company, where he was founding editor of its influential spinoff site, Co.Design. In the course of his 10-year career covering design and technology, he has edited or written over 5,000 articles.

Every artist works in a preferred medium and as photographers, their medium is light. For them, the awareness and control of highlights and shadows creates the illusion of depth in two-dimensional images. Light has several variables that they also must take into consideration when capturing images. These include light’s direction, intensity, color temperature and quality. A professional can see the light, determine if it is ideal for the task at hand and then modify or substitute the source to create the perfect image.This presentation by photographer Paul Bernstein is designed to raise your ability to see the light, select the correct photographic tools and utilize the proper lighting techniques to create three-dimensional portraits, candids, scenics or still life images every time you press the shutter. The content is applicable to those at every level of photographic experience, as light is our common denominator.Paul Bernstein has been a professional photographer for over 40 years, during which time he has photographed over 2500 social functions, many theatrical events and countless portrait sessions. He is a master of lighting and posing, as well as candid photography.

Professor Levine is also the author of The Serious Pleasures of Suspense and Provoking Democracy. "Forms is a truly extraordinary book, a book of a generation. If this were only a work of theory, it would already be one of the best scholarly books I’ve read. But it is also, more importantly, a model of method. Caroline Levine . . . has drawn the map that will lead us out of the dead end facing literary studies today – the dead end of wanting to talk about the literary in relation to the social but not knowing how."--Amanda Claybaugh, Harvard University

This film makes the case that American nurses changed the face of the healthcare system by taking over access to primary care, and removing the barriers that sidelined nursing as just a support system to doctors and patients. Through interviews, historical footage, and analysis from noted innovators such as Loretta Ford, Jean Steel, Julie Fairman, Jan Towers, Jamie Newland, Linda Pearson, and Michael Carter, the film examines the roots and evolution of nurse practitioners leading up to the present day. Today, over 200,000 licensed nurse practitioners practice in the U.S.; 21 states (and growing) claim independent practice authority; and 350 nursing programs exist at the Master and Doctoral levels.Featuring appearances from faculty nurse practitioners Jamesetta Newland and Madeleine Lloyd.Followed by a Q+A with director Susan Hagedorn.

Slide Lecture |
One of the first dialogues between Brazilian and Jewish cultures took place at a so-called Yiddish Avenue. This neighborhood in Rio de Janeiro, where the majority of Jewish immigrants from Eastern Europe settled in the 1920s, was also referred to as Little Africa, with Jews and African Brazilians living side by side and attending samba performances on adjacent streets.In celebration of the Brazilian national holiday of Carnival, and less than two weeks before Jewish festival of Purim, this multi-media presentation explores the history of cultural integration of Jewish community in Brazil. Brazilian Judaica scholar Bernardo Sorj noted that despite the fundamental difference between Brazilian culture  of “optimistic fatalism” and Jewish  tradition of “pessimistic willfulness,” the  immersion into Brazilian culture is highly therapeutic for the Jews, as it is an excellent antidote for their historical traumas. While commercial relations and open mindedness of Brazilians led to increasing cultural connections, the process of integration of Jewish community coincided with the development of Carnival as Brazilian cultural icon.  The evening will feature videos from Carnival shows with Jewish themes. The impact of these performances on the image of the Jews in Brazilian society and its lessons for the Jewish community will be discussed. The evening will conclude with an overview of works by Brazilian artists inspired by Klezmer music and Brazilian films that refer to Jewish themes. Lecturer Alex Minkin is an independent scholar and social activist, focusing his research on Brazilian culture. He is the founder of Ticún Brasil, an innovative social justice NGO that implements educational, social and art projects in Rio de Janeiro, as well as organizes Brazilian cultural events in New York since 2008. Minkin lectured at Brazilian Endowment for the Arts and published articles on Brazilian culture at Jewish Currents and Sounds and Colours. He is currently working on a book Seven Waves of Umbanda that traces the origins of this Brazilian religion.

With calls to "resist" saturating our landscape, the lessons of successful resistances of the past have never been more valuable. This is especially the case of the Weather Underground Organization, whose revolutionary activities of the late 1960s and early 1970s aimed to destroy the US government's imperialist policies as well as promote the Black Liberation Movement and socialist ideals. Organization co-founders Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, in a conversation moderated by Prof. Toby Lee, bring the knowledge gained from their past work to inform an efficacious radicality for the contemporary moment. Preceded by a screening of select clips from the Weather Underground's history.

An uncompleted manuscript that combines lyric poetry and prose commentary, the Banquet (or Convivio) is one of Dante Alighieri’s most important and least understood philosophical texts. As Maria Luisa Ardizzone shows, its language and logic are deeply connected to medieval culture and the philosophical debates of the thirteenth and early fourteenth centuries.In Reading as the Angels Read, Ardizzone reconstructs the cultural and socio-political background that provided the motivation for the Banquet and offers a bold new reading of this ambitious work. Drawing on a deep knowledge of Dante’s engagement with biblical, Augustinian, Neoplatonic, and Aristotelian philosophy, she suggests that the Banquet is not an encyclopedia of learning as many have claimed, but Dante’s attempt to articulate a theory of human happiness in which perfect knowledge is the natural basis for a well-organized political community.

In this talk, Rebecca Rogers draws from the material of her book about Madame Luce to offer new insights into the history of colonial Algeria. Luce’s life story reveals how girls’ education and female artisanal training were part of the French “civilizing mission” from the early years. Recovering this history raises issues about the gendering of historical memory. Rebecca Rogers is professor of history of education (Université Paris Descartes, Sorbonne Paris Cité). She is the author of From the Salon to the Schoolroom; Educating Bourgeois Girls in 19th-Century France (The Penn State University Press, 2005) and A Frenchwoman’s Imperial Story: Madame Luce in 19th-Century Algeria (Stanford University Press, 2013).

Leidy Churchman (b. 1979) lives and works in New York. His work is currently on view in Painting 2.0: Expression in the Information Age, Museum Moderner Kunst Stiftung Ludwig, Vienna and Human Interest: Portraits from the Whitney’s Collection, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. Churchman’s paintings combine different styles and experience in order to explore the complexity of an image and its visibility. Despite their familiar appearance and construction, the subjects of his works are not immediately discernible. By revealing the transformative properties of representation and perception, Churchman gives art making and painting contemplative agency.

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.

Colloquium |
With the flow of finance, people, and influence across national borders undermining the traditional sovereignty of the nation-state, this event explores alternative ways that we might think about the definition and role of how a space is delimited and ruled. The conversation considers new technologies including the structure of the stack as described by theorist Benjamin Bratton. In several texts Bratton describes the relationship between different types of automated calculation such as mobile apps, smart cities, and cloud platforms amongst others. In recent years Bratton, as well as other academics and artists, have developed substantial discourse around this term, considering how these seemingly invisible structures that inform and underpin our everyday lives operate in ways that are akin to older, more familiar models of the market and the state and also how they differ.This panel brings those conversations together with the history and contemporary moment of the No DAPL protests, one of the largest gatherings of indigenous nations in one place that has gained significant momentum and visibility in the news to fight the Dakota Access Pipeline.ParticipantsNobu Aozaki, artistBenjamin Bratton, Professor, Speculative Design; Director, Center for Design and Geopolitics, University of California, San DiegoTyler Coburn, artist and writerJaskiran Dhillon, Assistant Professor of Global Studies and AnthropologyAdelita Husni-Bey, artistDaniel Sauter, Associate Professor of Data Visualization

First, this presentation will briefly summarise and draw on the overall perspective, approach and findings of the applicant’s comparative European research on Islam/Muslims over the last 15 years. It will then zoom in on key findings from the specific analyses undertaken in the proposed project during the fellowship. This will be an original study of how a country’s institutional accommodation of Islam relates to: a) the way that the issue is (de)legitimated by the claims of political actors in mass mediated public debates; and b) the view on ordinary people living in that country on the issue. It examines the degree to which public debates act as a ‘barrier’ or ‘bridge’ to the socio-cultural integration of Muslims in the UK, France, Germany and the Netherlands. Lecturer Paul Statham is Professor of Migration and Director of the Sussex Centre for Migration Research (SCMR) in the School of Global Studies at the University of Sussex, UK.

From the artist: “As a realist artist working from an abstract reference point, I search for the painting’s essence, to find its inherent visual power. My need to communicate through line, form, texture, and color is overwhelming and literally beyond words. A successful work of art has its own energy that the viewer can feel. I know how I feel when I look at art that moves and inspires, and gives me hope. To embrace the creative spirit is one of the joys of being human.”

Ken Ohara (b. 1942) is known as an innovator who expands the boundaries of photographic portraits to the extent that our familiar perceptions of others and ourselves become precarious. While his work has earned international acclaim through numerous exhibitions and publications, this gallery show marks his solo debut in New York, where his career began five decades ago.

Ruth Bauer Neustadter's Go Figure is a painting exhibition and visual dance exploring the variations and possibilities of the human figure through the eyes of one artist. Techniques, materials, styles, subject matter vary in each painting. Some are expressionistic figures made with paint on canvas, others are constructions and some are made with found objects on wood. Out of Bounds presents felted sculptures by Susan Kaplow. Kaplow's work falls outside the bounds of the usual felting practices, which employ the softest fibers and aim for the smoothest surfaces to create wearable and decorative objects. Instead, Kaplow chooses rougher fibers and techniques that preserve a reference to the animals that provide the raw material. She adds cooler elements-- metals, bones, thorns-- to play against the warmth of the felt, increasing the dynamic tension in the sculptures.

“Once Upon a Time...” the world was considered flat and the earth the center of the universe. We now speak of a global geography which intersects the practices of diverse cultures and habits. Currently, however, we are faced with false news, alternative facts, gentrification, xenophobia and racism. But we can still dream of the survival of the beautiful, fair social practices and delights of the imagination. We can dream of equality for all.As globalization transforms the receding industrial age into our current information age, and as data continues to pile up at an exponential rate, our world has become utterly reconfigured—ideologically, economically, technologically and aesthetically. An all-pervading media buzz blurs and deafens any careful examination necessary to make distinctions—subtle or otherwise—about what is at stake. In light of the recent American Apocalypse and the growing importance of symbols and their interpretation, can artists become a useful political force in at least representing an antidote to historical amnesia? Creativity is our ally.Once Upon a Time... represents the diversity of media as practiced in the BFA Fine Arts Department. From video to video mapping to sculpture, painting and drawing, the works exhibited here reflect our current state of affairs.The exhibition highlights those born in the USA, combined with students whose heritage is English, Ghanian, Iranian, Russian, Dominican, Japanese, Israeli, Kashmiran and Korean. Artists in the exhibition include: Kesewa Aboah, Maumoon Ahmad, Alana Austin, Emma Fague, Raquel Hazell, Ella Hilsenrath, Mahyar Kalari, Seoyoung Kim, Shinnosuke Miyake, Viktorea Nagibina, Natalie Ochoa, Maria Semenenko, Eduardo Solana and Logan Swedick.

Discussion |
Inspired by one of David Markson's late works of fiction, this panel invites authors of non-traditional fictions to discuss their work, writing processes, inspirations, and motivations. Such hybrid forms are books that mix fiction and non-fiction, books that employ intertextuality, that use research and the documentary impulse in some way, or involve the intermixing both lyrical and more prose-like approaches. With Laurie Sheck, David Shields, Shelley Jackson and Wayne Koestenbaum. Moderated by Lucy Ives.

Benjamin Percy challenges the notion that literary and genre fiction are mutually exclusive. He looks to disparate sources to discover how contemporary writers engage issues of plot, suspense, momentum and the speculative, as well as character, setting and dialogue, all in the service of one dictum: Thrill the reader. He will be in conversation with writer Jonathan Lee, author of High Dive.

Symposium |
Our cultural, political and physical geographies proliferate with wounded places: sites of conflict and natural disasters; places marked by layers of turmoil and conquests; impromptu refuge locations that become permanent. “Making home” in these places, seldom a choice, becomes simultaneously a material and symbolic endeavor, involving both design and memory practices.Wounded places are scarred with collective memory of what had happened: they contain markers of the past, which may or may not be legible to those who make home there. Mnemonic activities, whether vernacular (informal) or officially imposed, can either facilitate or constrain the making of home in wounded places.This international symposium is conceived as a polyphonic intervention engaging the realms of design studies, art, and the social sciences. We propose the following questions to inform our discussions:How to make home in wounded places?What is the role of memory tensions in this process?How does the (re)design of wounded places impact their users?How are wounded places appropriated by the politics of memory?What are the strategies for navigating through wounded places — as individuals, as communities, as societies?

A superior if sometimes overlooked trumpeter (the Kenny Dorham of the 1990s), Claudio Roditi is a frequently exciting hard bop-oriented player. He came to the U.S. to study at Berklee (1970-1971) and gigged around the Boston area until moving to New York in 1976. Roditi played with Charlie Rouseand Herbie Mann, and most importantly, in the early '80s, he started working regularly with Paquito D'Rivera. The reliable trumpeter has been on many straight-ahead recording sessions, in addition to being a member of Dizzy Gillespie's United Nation Orchestra. Roditi recorded as a leader for Green Street (an obscure date in 1984), Uptown, Candid, and Reservoir, among other labels.This Rio-born trumpet and flugelhorn player has been on the US jazz scene since studying at Berklee College of Music in 1970. Often overlooked among the top players, Claudio has lived in New York for 30 years. He is known for his warm, fluid sound combining post bop and Brazilian elements. A Grammy nominee, he has recorded a dozen albums as a leader. With his Resonance / Heirloom debut, he will get the national push which he so richly deserves. He has worked with Herbie Mann, Charlie Rouse, Paquito D'Rivera and Dizzy Gillespie's United Nations Orchestra. This swinging and sensual date features the legendary drummer Duduka da Fonseca and pianist Helio Alves. On this recording, Claudio performs a number of originals and lesser known gems from the Brazilian repertoire.The Eyes of the Masters series is a special class where legendary artists share their experiences, knowledge and insights into the world of music both as an art form and as a career.

Conference |
How are we, as global citizens, accountable to each other? This year’s Scholar and Feminist Conference explores the haptic—the perception and manipulation of objects using the sense of touch—as an ethics of being in the world. Feminist scholars, artists, and activists come together in this utterly unique two-day conference to examine the many ways in which touch helps us better understand the politics and aesthetics of embodiment, situatedness, and performance. Through a series of panels and artistic encounters, we consider how our senses—not only touch, but taste, sight, and sound—situate us as bodies in political and economic contexts (such as labor), as well as in personal and sensory ones.

Based on Salvatore Di Giacomo's novel, Assunta Spina was filmed on location in Naples in 1914 and was produced and released by Caesar Film in 1915 in Italy. It features the queen of Italian silent screen Francesca Bertini, who is credited with directing the film together with her co-star, Gustavo Serena. As soon as the film opens with Assunta, played by Bertini against the background of the Bay of Naples, an operatic tale of love and sacrifice unfolds and we meet a strong working class woman in turn of the century Naples. Faced with the harsh realities of violence, jealousy and corruption she preserves her dignity while struggling to survive. Bertini's performance set a new standard for Italian cinema. Filmed on location in Naples.71 min.Contemprary composer John T. La Barbera's score, arranged for violin, mandolin and guitar, creates an intimate atmosphere by keeping an accompaniment of emotions found in the melodic themes of the characters in a leitmotif style to highlight the melodramatic and picturesque style of the film. As the film captures glimpses of life on the streets of Naples, references to popular traditional music can be seen in the background shots. From dancing the polka accompanied by serenading musicians to pastoral shepherds playing bagpipes for Christmas, he presents a glimpse into this period by using the rhythms of tarantella, polka, tango, waltzes, and pastoral serenades, to enhance the realism surrounding the circumstances of Assunta's tragic and passionate story.

The Music of Chick Corea is a concert highlighting the work of one of the most significant jazz pianists and composers since the 1960s. Since embarking on a solo career in 1966, Chick Corea has been at the forefront of jazz, both as a renowned pianist forging new ground with his acoustic jazz bands and as an innovative electric keyboardist with Return To Forever, the Elektric band and now the electro/acoustic Vigil. A DownBeat Hall of Famer and NEA Jazz Master, 22-time Grammy winner, and keyboard virtuoso, Corea has attained living legend status after five decades of unparalleled creativity and an artistic output that is simply staggering. The concert will be led by longtime faculty member pianist Michael Cochrane. Joining Cochrane are fellow faculty members Jeremy Noller on drums, Kevin Farrell on bass and guest artist Eli Asher on trumpet.

Symposium |
Our cultural, political and physical geographies proliferate with wounded places: sites of conflict and natural disasters; places marked by layers of turmoil and conquests; impromptu refuge locations that become permanent. “Making home” in these places, seldom a choice, becomes simultaneously a material and symbolic endeavor, involving both design and memory practices.Wounded places are scarred with collective memory of what had happened: they contain markers of the past, which may or may not be legible to those who make home there. Mnemonic activities, whether vernacular (informal) or officially imposed, can either facilitate or constrain the making of home in wounded places.This international symposium is conceived as a polyphonic intervention engaging the realms of design studies, art, and the social sciences. We propose the following questions to inform our discussions:How to make home in wounded places?What is the role of memory tensions in this process?How does the (re)design of wounded places impact their users?How are wounded places appropriated by the politics of memory?What are the strategies for navigating through wounded places — as individuals, as communities, as societies?

Greenwich Village is among Manhattan's most desirable and expensive residential neighborhoods. It's history, however, betrays it's monied status. The Village, with it's quiet, shaded streets, lined with lovely brick and brownstone townhouses, was once the incubating ground of artistic, social and political movements that have helped shape US history. From the Beats to the Folk Movement, from workers rights to gay rights, the Village has often been the center of it all.

How are we, as global citizens, accountable to each other? This year’s Scholar and Feminist Conference explores the haptic—the perception and manipulation of objects using the sense of touch—as an ethics of being in the world. Feminist scholars, artists, and activists come together in this utterly unique two-day conference to examine the many ways in which touch helps us better understand the politics and aesthetics of embodiment, situatedness, and performance. Through a series of panels and artistic encounters, we consider how our senses—not only touch, but taste, sight, and sound—situate us as bodies in political and economic contexts (such as labor), as well as in personal and sensory ones.

Legendary gospel quartet The Blind Boys of Alabama has had an amazing career—since meeting at a state-run, segregated vocational institute for the blind in the 1930s, they have toured continuously, amassing five Grammy Awards and universal acclaim. They soared through the golden era of gospel in the 1950s, experienced difficult times when rock ’n’ roll took over, and resurged with the Broadway hit Gospel at Colonus. Now, as the group enters its seventh decade, they are as artistically vital as ever, collaborating with musicians like Peter Gabriel, Ben Harper, and others. As the surviving band members recount their unlikely success story, we see a rare, remarkable view of life on the road and in the studio with a group of renowned performers.89 min.

Giovanni Aloi examines the history of artists working with animals, and the implications this has for notions of authorship and collaboration.This talk evaluates the challenges involved in human/animal relations that currently unfold in contemporary art. Determined to overcome the objectifying iconographies of animal representation in classical art, contemporary artists are more than ever before committed to envision new human/animal engagement. Notions of authorship, skill, aesthetics, and meaning are thus brought into question by the inclusion of living animals in the processes of art making. In this context, creativity and collaboration become new markers of the limits and potentialities involved in rethinking the very boundaries of artistic practice.

This class will focus on the politically significant yet seldom acknowledged common ground between a section of labor reformers and political abolitionists in New York on questions of land and freedom for all citizens, regardless of race. Through an investigation of personal papers, public lectures, and newspapers of the period leading up to the Mexican-American War, this class will trace the transformation of radical reform traditions from practices divided along racial lines, to movements with shared goals and priorities. We will see how in the lead-up to this conflict, Northern reformers were pushed to develop innovative political and social organizations in an effort to break the pattern of compromise with the slave South, and how Paineite (after Thomas Paine) circles of agrarian radicals and abolitionist networks organized—sometimes in tandem—to form a Northern cross-class opposition to slavery.

This group formed in 2015 out of a desire to offer a different layer into prayer in the congregation. The idea came from a very involved congregant to have people come together to learn to sign and sing a prayer or a song and to offer it to our community during Shabbat services. It was wildly successful and made a huge impact on the community. They are excited about this group continuing to learn and grow and share their songs with others.

Pierre Leguillon’s performative work The Promise of the Screen (2007–) doubles as a film screening and a speakeasy, “dedicated to the peripheral aspects of cinema.” At the event, Leguillon will present the Manual of Photography, an anthology of film sequences to “teach, to frame, to trigger, to illuminate, to develop but also, perhaps, to commit suicide with his camera.”  The film montage is based on technical and popular books preserved at the Société française de Photographie in Paris, detailing the multiple uses of the medium: from fashion photography to judicial photography, amateur photography or Photo-journalism.With a cocktail reception.

Staged Reading |
Pioneering 18th-century Venetian playwright and librettist Carlo Goldoni reinvigorated the commedia dell’arte tradition, injecting his comedies with realism, tighter plots, a new spontaneity, and middle-class characters. Kairos Italy Theater gives the US premiere of a staged version of his Memoirs—performed only once before under the direction of the legendary Giorgio Strehler.
