Tour | Tour of Gracie Mansion, Home of New York's Mayors


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 at 10am and 11am.

From the Beats to the Folk Movement, from workers rights to gay rights, the Village has often been the center of it all.

Symposium | Responsibility, Punishment, and Psychopathy: At the Crossroads of Law, Neurocriminology, and Philosophy


Psychopathy is a mental disorder closely associated with marked emotional dysfunctions, limited capacity for moral judgments, recidivistic offending, and poor treatment outcome. Considering its peculiar characteristics, the status of psychopathy in the field of law raises several issues. One of the most prominent issues is whether offenders who suffer from psychopathy should be legally excused for their actions. Three leading experts in neurocriminology, law, and philosophy will consider if, and how, insights into the neurobiological roots of psychopathy might contribute to the reconsideration of the responsibility of psychopathic offenders and how criminal justice should optimally respond to individuals suffering from such a controversial disorder. Speakers: Stephen J. Morse, University of Pennsylvania Law School Adrian Raine,  University of Pennsylvania Katrina L. Sifferd, Elmhurst College Discussant: Kathryn Tabb, Assistant Professor of Philosophy Moderator: Federica Coppola, Presidential Scholar in Society and Neuroscience

Tour | High Line Tour


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.

Author Reading | Nadine Strossen discusses her book Hate: Why We Should Resist it With Free Speech, Not Censorship


Nadine Strossen, president of the American Civil Liberties Union from 1991 to 2008, argues that expanding free speech, not limiting it, is the solution for changing the hearts and minds of those who espouse hateful ideologies. She dispels many of the myths and misunderstandings that have permeated the debates of what constitutes, “hate speech,” including what is and isn’t protected speech. Strossen’s powerful argument on behalf of free expression promises to elevate the debate around free speech and illuminate upon when words have the power to go too far.

Author Reading | Todd S. Purdum discusses his book Something Wonderful: Rodgers and Hammerstein's Broadway Revolution


They stand at the apex of the great age of songwriting, the creators of the classic Broadway musicals Oklahoma!, Carousel, South Pacific, The King and I, and The Sound of Music, whose songs have never lost their popularity or emotional power. Though different in personality and often emotionally distant from each other, Rodgers and Hammerstein presented an unbroken front to the world and forged much more than a songwriting team; they were cultural powerhouses whose work came to define postwar America on stage, screen, television, and radio.

Lecture | The Price of Race in New Brooklyn’s Real Estate


“Location, location, location…” so goes the trope for how real estate properties derive their value. But how does race figure in the attribution of value for a property and a neighborhood? Based on ethnographic and mixed-method research in two demographically transitioning neighborhoods in 21st century Brooklyn, Zaire Dinzey-Flores of Rutgers University considers how neighborhood spaces and property interiors are aesthetically, discursively, and materially produced and crafted by real estate actors in ways that render previously socially de-valued neighborhoods “valuable” and “worthy” of investment.

Lecture | Seas of Paper: Finance and the Nineteenth-Century Bazaar Economies of the Western Indian Ocean


The nineteenth century marked a moment of massive economic transformation in the Western Indian Ocean, as the region became more firmly integrated into the new global regimes of finance, marketing, and distribution. But for these global regimes to take root locally, they had to pass through the world of the bazaar – through the circuits of actors, idioms, and contractual forms that gave exchange its transregional shape around the ocean’s shores. This talk explores the documentary regimes that underpinned the bazaar economies of the Indian Ocean in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Drawing on a polyphonic and far-flung archive of financial paper from around the ocean’s shores, it charts out the circulations of commodities and forms of wealth, and the changing opportunities that characterized economic life in the Indian Ocean world of the bazaar. More broadly, it reflects on the legal and commercial forms that gave a moment of global transformation its moorings in the local marketplace, from Bahrain to Zanzibar. Speaker: Professor Fahad Bishara (University of Virginia) specializes in the economic and legal history of the Indian Ocean and Islamic World.

Gentrification often disrupts those narratives and blurs the line between development and erasure.

Talk | Power of Gentleness: Meditations on the Risk of Living


An evening on the works of Anne Dufourmantelle with Avital Ronell. Key moments of our lives, especially at the beginning and end, are marked by gentleness—but the simplicity of that concept is misleading. Gentleness is an active passivity that may become an extraordinary force of resistance within ethics and politics. In this powerful rethinking by a renowned philosopher and psychoanalyst, whose untimely death captured worldwide attention, gentleness becomes a series of embodied paradoxes: power that is also soft, nobility that is also humble, sweetness that is also intelligent, subtlety that is nevertheless striking, fragility that has the potential to subvert the status quo. Join Avital Ronell, to celebrate the release of Anne Dufourmantelle’s Power of Gentleness in English.

Discussion | Fact or Fiction? Amadeus and the Portrayal of an Artist -- with Oscar Winner F. Murray Abraham


Thirty-five years after its premiere in 1984, Miloš Forman’s film adaptation of Peter Shaffer’s Amadeus stands as the most vivid, powerful, and controversial composer biopic of its time, one of the few times classical music was thrust into the American mainstream.  The movie’s tagline was diabolically clever: “Everything You’ve Heard is True!” While on one level it simply refers to the power of the film, it subtly reinforces the notion that viewers were engaged with a true story—a real docudrama—rather than fiction inspired by Alexander Pushkin’s 1830 play Mozart and Salieri. Leonard Bernstein Scholar-in-Residence Michael Beckerman debates the issues, ideas, and ethics of Amadeus.   Michael Beckerman, speaker F.

Classical Music | Songs Composed in Theresienstadt, the World War II Concentration Camp


Program: Songs composed in Theresienstadt, 1940–1944 Viktor Ullmann String Quartet No. 3 op. 46 (1943) Star singer Ute Lemper, “one of the great chanteuses” (New Yorker), and the “eloquent” Escher Quartet (BBC Music Magazine) team up for an evening of the remarkable music composed in Theresienstadt, the World-War-II concentration camp. Lemper offers songs that traverse a wide spectrum of human emotion, and the Escher Quartet performs Viktor Ullmann’s masterful String Quartet No. 3, a romantic rumination on life’s fleeting beauty. Don’t miss this unique musical testament to the resilience of the human spirit.   With: Ute Lemper, vocals Vana Gierig, piano Romain Lecuyer, bass Escher Quartet: Adam Barnett-Hart, violin Kristin Lee, violin Pierre Lapointe, viola Brook Speltz, cello
