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.

Lecture |
While the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution granted citizenship rights to millions of former slaves, its mandate simultaneously imposed unprecedented limitations on the citizenship rights of white male Southerners. Those limitations purported to permanently disqualify from public office holding tens of thousands of Confederate soldiers, officials, and sympathizers who had earlier taken an oath to uphold the laws of the federal government. Following ratification, however, a more nuanced scene unfolded as Congress - first in drabs, then in a flood - extended amnesty to nearly all of those affected. Their stories, and the story of the failed implementation of the Amendment, narrate a crisis of constitutionalism not seen again in the US until Prohibition. Speaker Taja-Nia Henderson is associate professor at Rutgers School of Law, Newark.

New York City is a mecca for graffiti and street art, making it a very attractive playground for artists from around the world. Bushwick, in a working class district on the north side of Brooklyn adjacent to Williamsburg, has been attracting artists for some time now. The neighborhood has a fair collection of art studios and galleries, but it’s Bushwick’s industrial landscape that’s attracting the street artist. If you came looking for 1960′s Greenwich Village, you’ll find something brewing in Bushwick.

The area around the High Line Park was a vital business district of New York City, supplying fresh fruits, French Cheeses and Russian caviar as well as fresh meats to City markets. The hustle and bustle of the streets induced the City to elevate the railroad trains delivering goods to the commercial buildings. When interstate truck traffic made the railway outdated, it fell into ruin, only to be regenerated as a park.

Thiebaud has been associated with the Pop art movement of the 1960s primarily because his most celebrated imagery originated from mass-produced commercial goods. However, the reverence and sense of nostalgia with which he conveys his subjects defies such facile categorization. Wayne Thiebaud was born in Mesa, Arizona in 1920. While still in high school, he worked at Walt Disney Studios and later was an artist and cartoonist for the U.S. Air Force. He has taught at the University of California at Davis since 1960. Thiebaud received the National Medal for Arts Presidential Award for Teaching from President Clinton in 1994, a 2001 Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Academy of Design, and a 2007 Bay Area Treasure Award from the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.

As the labor market continues its slow return to health following the Great Recession, there is growing concern that unemployed workers just don’t have the skills needed for the jobs employers are trying to fill. But in fact, there is little evidence to suggest that skill shortages are a serious problem in today’s labor market. Professor Katharine Abraham will review the evidence and consider why there is a widespread perception of a serious skills mismatch when the data seem to be saying otherwise. She will conclude with a brief discussion of implications for policy.

The famous ellipses that punctuate Stendhal’s Le Rouge et le noir tend to intervene when the story comes too close to one of two topics: sex and politics.

Wallace’s process of abstraction is based in materiality, working methodically back from the detritus left behind in the studio, the ends become the means. The artist delves into the technical and formal properties of abstract painting by creating reliefs that prize texture, light and surface tension. By limiting his palette Wallace makes the medium the message, the works are chromatically minimalist, and materially maximalist.

Mabel Dodge Luhan (1879–1962) was a mover and shaker of the modern world, whose claims to fame began in her radical Greenwich Village salon in the 1910s and increased after she married her fourth husband, Antonio Lujan, a Taos Pueblo Indian, and began a utopian community that brought leading figures in painting, photography, music, dance and Native American rights activism to her estate in northern New Mexico (1918-1947). In this illustrated lecture, the well-known biographer and cultural critic examines her life through the lenses of venereal disease, psychoanalysis, and sexology and shows the audience how her struggles with identity, sexuality, and manic depression speak to the lives of many women of her era.

In his Theologico-political Treatise Spinoza asks the question: what does it mean for a text to be the word of “God”? Focusing more particularly on the case of the Muslim sacred book, the Quran, Souleymane Bachir Diagne examines the question of the translation of the infinite Word into a human finite language and explores the implications (religious, philosophical, political) of that primordial “vertical” translation for the translations for the original chosen (therefore sacred) language into other human tongues.

Grammy–nominated Ethiopian-American singer/songwriter Wayna has received accolades from popular music’s highest echelons: Stevie Wonder calls her “incredible.” Essence magazine deemed her “one to watch,” and Billboard declared her a “stand-out on the indie front.” The singer’s unique blend African and reggae-inspired soul with classic and alternative rock—aptly named “world soul”—earned her two chart-topping singles (from her sophomore LP Higher Ground) and a coveted Grammy nomination for Best Urban/Alternative Performance.
