Symposium |
This two-day Franco-American workshop seeks to compare the cultural, ethical, religious, historical and policy implications of how reproductive technologies have developed and now impact our two national contexts. In both countries, advanced reproductive technologies have long been in development and are now in widespread use. France and the United States share a certain number of similar conceptions relative to kinship and gender, and are both undergoing comparable evolutions in the creation of new family configurations. Yet in France, public discourse calling for “social solidarity” with people experiencing infertility is widespread and public payment and access is designed and tightly controlled through biomedical regulation. In the US, by contrast, “privacy” of family life and “consumer choice” dominate the public discussion, while few insurance schemes actually cover reproductive technology expenses and market access shapes both popular imaginaries and practical use.

Conference |
Given the political challenges of the present, the necessity for radical solidarity appears more pressing than ever. Yet while an understanding of solidarity has been pivotal to social change since at least the Haitian Revolution, how it is articulated has never been less than problematic. Is it a process of political change? Is it its goal? How does solidarity define what it is against without excluding forms of political difference that might enhance it? What can be learned from solidarity in the past, especially when contingent solidarity in the present regards such a history with justifiable incredulity? There can be no doubt that notions of solidarity continue to impact creatively how one understands political opposition and change, how one interrogates constituency and allies, goals and timelines. The differences of solidarity and a respect for the specificity of particular struggles clearly invigorates how solidarity is now engaged, but solidarity can also be more than negotiated coalitions and fragmented alliances. This conference brings together activists, scholars, activist scholars, and radical thinkers all to consider the meanings of solidarity for political work. What makes solidarity insurgent? Is it its composition or the kind of change it struggles to affect? What are its scales and modes and what are their significance today?

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.

Lecture |
For all its investment in futurity and progress, romantic-period discourse is preoccupied with loss, frequently for a specific “object”—innocence, childhood, revolutionary promise—which is the basis, on many accounts, for a characteristic disenchantment or solipsism. But there is a melancholic strain to romanticism as well, issuing paradoxically in versions of immediacy, where loss is both nonspecific and time-stamped and where the “now,” however shocking or fragile, is suddenly—in anticipation of our present moment—the thing that matters. Speaker: William Galperin, Rutgers University

Lecture |
"I trace and explain how the ratcheting of corporate mergers and deregulation transformed the structure of elite relations in the United States from 1960 to the present. Prior to the 1970s there was a high degree of elite unity and consensus, enforced by Federal regulation and molded by the structure of the U.S. government, around a set of policies and practices: interventionism abroad, progressive tax rates, heavy state investment in infrastructure and education, and a rising level of social spending. I find that economic decline, the loss of geopolitical hegemony, and mobilization from the left and right are unable to account for the specific policies that both Democratic and Republican Administrations furthered since the 1970s or for the uneven decline in state capacity that were intended and unintended consequences of the post-1960s political realignment and policy changes. Instead, the realignment and restructuring of elites and classes that first transformed politics and degraded government in the 1970s in turn made possible further shifts in the capacities of American political actors in both the state and civil society. I explain how that process operated and how it produced specific policy outcomes and created new limits on mass political mobilization while creating opportunities for autarkic elites to appropriate state powers and resources for themselves."

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.

Polyamorous people and communities can appear, at first glance, to be very open and welcoming. In many cases, they don’t take the time to get introspective about why they may come across as unfriendly or inaccessible to people of color. Love’s Not Color Blind is a book about what we can do to change that landscape. This book-signing event comes bundled with a personally-driven discussion/Q&A on how race can impact polyamory on both individual and community levels.

Concert |
Appalachian and Native American song is at the root of American music. Today, their song and struggle is particularly relevant and Martha Redbone is a clear and beautiful voice that represents these deep musical traditions. Her music flows equally from her own unique, award-winning blend of Native American elements with funk and her deep roots in Appalachian folk and Piedmont blues favored by the matriarchy that raised her on a rich sojourn from Clinch Mountain, Virginia, to Harlan County, Kentucky, and beyond to Brooklyn’s Dodge City-esque mean streets. Tonight, her ensemble joins with Brooklyn Raga Massive's community of Indian music–inspired artists to highlight both the roots and contemporary interpretations of these traditions. Stick around for a post-concert social hour featuring DJ Shishi. With Martha Redbone, vocals; Aaron Whitby, keyboards and piano; Marvin Sewell, guitar; Charlie Burnham, violin; Tony Mason, drums; Fred Cash, bass; Sameer Gupta, tabla; Pawan Benjamin, bansuri; Neel Murgai, sitar. Special guests Soni Moreno, vocals; Michael Gam, sarod and percussion
