Conference |
Through interdisciplinary panels and breakout sessions, the Conference on Cities, Climate and Migration will highlight challenges facing cities in the U.S. (particularly coastal cities such as New York), examine issues of social justice in planning responses, and explore the role of cities as actors on the national and global level. The event will feature influential speakers; including leading academics, policymakers and climate change experts. Climate change and natural disasters are fundamental drivers of migration and will grow in importance in the future. Urban areas will be particularly affected by environmental events, resulting in the migration of large numbers of persons into and out of cities. Such migration will produce challenges relating to shelter, public services, social cohesion and social justice—putting the world’s urban areas on the frontline of efforts for response and adaptation.

Conference |
This graduate student conference is on the concept, history, practices and implications of radical democracy. If the preconditions for the rise of the far-right, xenophobia, white supremacy, ethno-nationalism, right-wing populism, religious fundamentalism and fascism can be found within liberal democracy and neo-liberalism, laying bare the violent foundations of the liberal democratic project, then what hope can theories of radical democracy offer toward re-founding society on democratic principles? How have the rise of social movements such as Occupy, the Arab Spring, Rojava, Black Lives Matter, Standing Rock, 15M, AntiFa, and the emergence of left alternatives such as Podemos, MAS and Syriza both exposed the contradictions of institutionalism, capitalism, rule of law, deliberation and other aspects of liberal democracy, and also illuminated the need for radical democratic alternatives?

Discussion |
In recent years, the Maghreb and the Middle East entered a phase of upheavals and transformations, which shifted from the imagination of possible new worlds to repression, restoration, and the catastrophic annihilation of forms of life. Yet for a time, the uprisings reopened the circulation of desire–a desire for mobility across the African continent and the Mediterranean. That desire forced a breach into the European order and its proliferating walls. In that confrontation on many fronts, known as the “European refugee crisis” (but whose crisis?) Europe’s “managed inhospitality”, its “smart” borders at sea, and its hybrid articulation of military and humanitarian border security resulted in the death of thousands. Images of bodies floating on the Mediterranean or washed ashore, of “asylum seekers” waiting on train tracks or tear gassed along the so-called Balkan route, or welcomed in Austria and Germany (only to be soon be rejected again) flooded the world media in 2015 and 2016. How might this recent history be seen and accounted for otherwise? Anthropologist Stefania Pandolfo and film director Leila Kilani reflect on borders, sovereignty, and dreams, on migration “in anamorphosis”, in an ongoing conversation based on their respective ethnographic and cinematographic work on the passion and counter-image of Burning, its mythical, theological, and prophetic imaginations, its proximity of life and death, and what it enables as transfiguration and critique. They will discuss their beginning collaboration on the “other side” of that journey, from the peripheral shore of Southern Sardinia, with its own history of internal Italian migration, disaffected mining, and dispossession, in its encounter with the in-appropriable histories, and vital “intrusion” of Sub-Saharan and other “asylum seekers”.

Discussion |
Instead of revisiting a few nostalgic clichés, this panel will collectively reflect on the very historical and political parameters of May ‘68: WHEN was May ‘68 exactly? WHERE did it occur? WHAT was it about? What is the meaningful historical sequence in which May ‘68 makes sense? With which other dates should it be paired in order to produce a significant chronology of the post-war period? 1958? 1967? 1974? 1981? 1989? Can this chronology be understood as a succession of “Revolutions” and periods of “return to order?” And where did it happen? While the narratives of May ‘68 traditionally locate it on a line going from Paris to New York, via Prague, Beijing and Tokyo, we would like to think through an alternative francophone geography of May ’68, one that includes Guadeloupe, where an anti-racist uprising in May 1967 was met with violent repression, as well as Dakar and Tunis, where contestations shook the local foundations of power and shaped social and political movements for decades to come. And finally, WHAT was May '68? How can we interpret together all the different movements that contested relations of power around race, gender, sexuality, labor, culture and knowledge? How did they shape subsequent political conflicts and how they resonate with current political and social struggles?

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.

Over the past few years, slavery has become a frequent theme in contemporary culture. Even though the topic has always been central in countries such as Brazil and the United States, it seems we have been watching more movies, soap operas and tv series on slavery than ever. Tourists are visiting historical sites and engaging in tours on the history and memory of the slave trade all over the Atlantic world. Crowds are packing museums on African-American culture. Slavery is represented in dance in popular festivals such as Rio’s carnival. Not surprisingly, slavery is a topic as sensitive as it is trendy. Video games and children’s books are provoking discussions among school-age parents. Movies are becoming public controversies. And the discussions over memorials and statues that deal with the slave past set the stage for political protests all over the United States.   This symposium aims to discuss the ways in which slavery is narrated in the tourism and entertainment industries. 5:30 pm                       Opening Remarks  5:45 pm – 7:45 pm      Screening of Vazante (Brazil/Portugal, 2017, 1h 56 min), directed by Daniela Thomas 7:45 pm – 9:00 pm      Discussion with director Daniela Thomas, Hebe Mattos (Universidade Federal de Juiz de Fora, Brazil) and Jennifer Morgan (NYU) Chair: Steve Hahn (NYU) Reception to follow.

“Dear Miss. You won’t remember me or my name. You have failed so many of us. However, I have often thought about you, and the other teachers, and that institution you call ‘school’ and about the children you fail. You fail us right into the fields and factories and then you forget us.” So began Lettera a una professoressa, translated into English in 1969 as Letter to a Teacher. The collective authors were a group of young students at an alternative school run by Don Lorenzo Milani in Barbiana, a tiny rural community in the hills near Florence. The book was immediately welcomed in Italy by teachers as a manifesto for a democratic alternative to a school system that reproduced deep divisions of social class, by linguists such as Tullio De Mauro as a revelation and by university students as a little red book for a revolution. Looking back on it now, fifty years after the upheavals of 1968, Lettera a una professoressa can be seen as the spark that ignited all subsequent attempts to reform education in Italy. Still today, it has the power to divide readers and arouse passionate arguments. Vanessa Roghi discusses her book La lettera sovversiva In English.

Frank and Simone have fulfilled their dream and live with their two children in a townhouse in the suburbs. They are a happy couple until the day Frank is diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor. The family is suddenly confronted with death. The time to say goodbye is short, which makes the situation all the more difficult for Frank. Director Andreas Dresen conveys through this moving and yet unsentimental drama how people cope with this problem in isolation and within the family circle, at home rather than in a hospital or hospice. It is inspired by experiences with people from his immediate surroundings. What’s special about this film is that he directs his attention where others either look away, hide behind metaphors or blur reality. It premiered at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival, where it won the Prize of Un Certain Regard. In German with English subtitles.

Insulted by the regent of France, Britain’s King Henry V decides to wage war and claim the throne across the Channel. But Henry’s charm only distracts the soldiers for so long before the dire stakes of their task calls into question the King’s true motives and direction. Resonating from across the centuries—wherever there may be a kingdom for a stage, and royalty to act—Shakespeare’s drama about invasion, ego and leadership delves into history’s thorniest questions: What makes a person worthy of wearing the crown, and what do they owe the people they lead? Obie Award-winning director Robert O’Hara (Bootycandy, The Brother/Sister Plays (Part 2)) brings a warring King and his band of brothers to communities all across New York with Mobile Unit’s spring production of Henry V.

The Barnard-Columbia Chorus joins the Choir of the University of Bolzano, Italy in presenting Messa da Requiem, Verdi’s masterpiece. In 1868, Giuseppe Verdi set out to commemorate the passing of Gioachino Rossini by inviting twelve additional Italian composers to contribute a section to a new Requiem Mass. The premier was slated for the following year, but difficulties with the organizing committee and the proposed conductor prevented the performance. Several years later, the great Italian writer Alessandro Manzoni also passed away. Verdi deeply admired Manzoni and was determined to set all of the Latin text of the Requiem Mass himself to honor his contemporary. The premier of the Messa da Requiem that, we know today, took place in 1874 with Verdi conducting.
