With Anne Klaeysen. The Fourth of July is a time for celebration. Parades, picnics and fireworks abound. It's also an opportunity to reflect upon independence and freedom. What do those concepts mean in a country that still struggles with racism, misogyny and inequality? How can we both love our homeland and dissent its policies? Patriotism takes many forms. Together we will share our thoughts, feelings and experiences.

Slide Lecture |
A lecture and slideshow with Julia Foulkes, Associate Professor of History, The New School. In 1919, the New School for Social Research opened with courses in the social sciences, social work, and public affairs in New York “because it is the greatest social science laboratory in the world.” The school was not quite a university: it did not offer formal degrees. The founders thought that people would come to the school for “no other purpose than to learn.” It sought to make education relevant to the issues of the day, to remain ever new. Nearly 100 years later, the school is now a multi-faceted university and a hub in the political, intellectual, and cultural life of New York City and Greenwich Village. This event will be dedicated to commemorating the dynamic history of The New School and the Greenwich Village neighborhood where it resides.

Beneath the Streets reveals this world for the first time with fantastic photographs captured from throughout the tunnels and byways of the subway. Although it provides service to over 5 million riders every day, the subway is for most a sealed system. Very few of its patrons are aware of the extent of this vast underground infrastructure.

With Paulo Ribeiro. Why does it seem as though we’ve hit a plateau? While pockets of prejudice continue to exist, most bigotry today manifests itself through individual actions that can’t simply be legislated away. If we are to truly put racism, sexism, homophobia, and other forms of prejudice behind us, we will need a more holistic approach to tackle the myriad subtle problems that defy traditional forms of activism. If we are to move forward as a civilization, we must look to build an entirely new culture that places the worth, dignity, and well-being of each and every person at the center of public life.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art, a favorite NYC museum for visitors and locals alike, is a must-see when you are in New York. It spans over two million square feet, houses over two million pieces of art, and is home to seven curatorial departments. It has three floors, several “half” floors, secret(ish) catacombs, rare paintings and sculptures, the world’s oldest piano, and a room constructed by famous American architect Frank Lloyd Wright. Feel exhausted just thinking about it? You're not alone. Make the most of your visit to the Met and discover the stories behind our favorite works of art in this 2-hour tour with a real New Yorker tour guide.
