Lecture | Fixing Our Broken Healthcare System: The Time is Now


The persistence of the Affordable Care Act, despite its flaws and opposition to it by many public figures, speaks to the idea that now is the time to look for long-term solutions. Dr. Bruce Vladeck will bring his expertise and long-term involvement in the field to address these important issues, along with his thoughts about potential solutions, followed by a Q & A session. Most of us know that healthcare in the United States is much more expensive than anywhere else in the world. Yet even with its high cost and the great technical advances in medicine made by our doctors and scientists in the past several decades, many citizens have no access to quality care, or even any care at all. While some of the causes are known, among them lack of sufficient funding for healthcare access and political disagreements about the role of government, questions and issues are not widely understood. Dr. Bruce Vladeck, Senior Vice President for Policy at Mount Sinai-NYU Health, and a former Administrator of the Healthcare Financing Administration.. .

Symposium | Armageddons: Fighting for the Ends of Time


The end is nigh! But which world is ending? And whose apocalypse is imminent? Intersecting and dissonant conceptions of the end of time compete for dominance in the public imagination. Depending on how you believe and which histories of the world inform your notion of the past, the planet is worryingly threatened by anthropogenic climate change or divine judgment or something else entirely. This is a day-long event to query histories, narratives, and temporalities regarding the end of time from the sixteenth-century to the present. The conference will explore the interpretive play of apocalyptic discourse and desire ranging from environmental disaster predictions to theologies of judgment and doom. It is an interdisciplinary conversation about planetary possibilities and future endings from scholars working in American Studies, the History of Science, Queer Theory, Literature, and Performance Studies.

Talk | Storytelling Workshop: Making Home as an LGBTQ Person in Harlem


A community conversation and storytelling workshop on the meanings of home for LGBTQ people in Harlem, facilitated by Ola Ronke Akinmowo, performer and storyteller of the Free Black Women's Library. The idea of home carries many different meanings, but it is a particularly complex concept for members of the LGBTQ community. In the 50 years since Stonewall, the struggle to make a home, feel safe at home, and build a sense of belonging at home has been ongoing. Not to mention the significant cultural and physical changes that have taken place in Harlem—once the hub of a social, intellectual and artistic innovation for Black Americans in the 1920s and 30s—over the last century. From large scale development and gentrification to loss of affordable housing, small businesses and a widespread thriving artistic scene, Harlem has changed dramatically. Focusing on the LGBTQ experience, Ola Ronke Akinmowo, founder of the Free Black Women’s Library, will lead community members in an exploration of what it means to make home in Harlem.

Talk | Pre-Concert Discussion: Bebop Saxophonist and Pianist 


This discussion provides background to the McCoy Tyner and Charles McPherson at 80 concert, also featuring the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis. Pianist McCoy Tyner and saxophonist Charles McPherson are both true living legends, each of them 80 years old, and they’re here to prove that jazz keeps you young. Charles McPherson is a singular bebop saxophonist. After playing with Charles Mingus for over a decade, McPherson has been traveling all over the world as a renowned leader and mentor. He remains one of the few musicians able to channel the classic bebop might of predecessors like Charlie Parker, but he possesses a powerful style of his own as both a composer and soloist.  Jazz Master McCoy Tyner is an artist whose enduring influence cannot be overstated. Tyner has made invaluable contributions to some of jazz’s greatest concerts and albums, including A Love Supreme, My Favorite Things, and Live at the Village Vanguard as a member of the John Coltrane Quartet.
