Talk |
With: Dr. Joseph Chuman. It is one of the most daunting questions we can ask about our fellow Americans. Why is it that despite the preponderance of evidence, not to mention and elementary reason, common sense, so many Americans adopt ideas for which there is no basis in fact. It is a social reality that is not only vexing and disturbing, but in its implications, dangerous as well. If people cannot or will not base their beliefs on evidence, how can they participate in a political system which relies on the public to make informed judgments that affect that the quality of democracy and the lives and freedoms of all of us? Is it a function of poor education or is something else going on?

This illustrated lecture is a story of urban transformation, cultural shifts, and an expanding contemporary art scene. The Chelsea Gallery District has become New York’s most dominant neighborhood for contemporary art, and the streets of the west side are filled with gallery owners, art collectors, and tourists. Developments like the High Line, historical preservation projects like the Gansevoort Market, the Chelsea galleries, and plans for megaprojects like the Hudson Yards Development have redefined what is now being called the “Far West Side” of Manhattan.

Conference |
The New York Military Affairs Symposium will present a one-day conference to explore the ramifications of the Battle of Waterloo in 1815. The Hundred Days, also known as the War of the Seventh Coalition, marked the period between Emperor Napoleon I of France’s return from exile on Elba to Paris on 20 March 1815 and the second restoration of King Louis XVIII on 8 July 1815 (a period of 111 days). This period saw the War of the Seventh Coalition, and includes the Waterloo Campaign and The Neopolitan War and the fate of Murat. The conference will explore new interpretations of this period with several panels exploring the impact of these events on history.

Slide Lecture |
With Mel Haber. Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly were two very different types of dancers; Fred Astaire was the more graceful, while Gene Kelly was the more athletic. It is unfair to say one is better than the other, because they both were masters at what they did. There were, of course, other singers and dancers who appeared on stage and in films, but none were the equal of these two. In this illustrated lecture, there are many videos of both of them performing in films. Information about their lives are also included. Among the Fred Astaire films featured are:"Top Hat," "Swing Time," "The Band Wagon," and "Funny Face;." and among the Gene Kelly films presented are: "For Me and My Gal," "Anchors Aweigh," "Brigadoon," and "Singin' in the Rain."

Slide Lecture |
Bruno Schulz (1892-1942) has enjoyed a double afterlife, as an artist and writer who has become a major figure in the literary mythologies of such prominently Jewish authors as Philip Roth, Cynthia Ozick, Danilo Kiš, David Grossman, Jonathan Safran Foer, and Nicole Krauss, while spawning an extensive critical and creative literature in Polish, inspiring writers and artists of many fields as Witold Gombrowicz, Tadeusz Kantor, Wojciech Jerzy Has, Ewa Kuryluk, Olga Tokarczuk, Agata Tuszyńska, Stefan Chwin, and many more. Emerging from the rich multicultural context of Galicja, then part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, in the petroleum boomtown of Drohobych, called “a town and a half” being divided among Polish Catholics, Jews, and Ukrainians, it should be no surprise that Schulz’s multiple identities persist. Speaker David A. Goldfarb is an independent scholar of Polish literature and literary theory, a literary translator from Polish to English, and a liaison for Polish authors to US publishers. From mid-2010 to the end of 2013, he served as Curator of Literature and Humanities at The Polish Cultural Institute in New York, a diplomatic mission of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Poland.

Author, journalist, and educator Joseph Campbell leads a trip back in time, to 1995, which he describes in his latest book as the year the future began. That year marked the emergence of the Internet into mainstream consciousness. It was the year of the Oklahoma City bombing, an attack that killed 168 people and signaled a deepening national preoccupation with terrorism. It was the year of the double-murder trial of O.J. Simpson, a months-long ordeal often called the "Trial of the Century."
