Conference | Mobilizations and Migrations


However the international order is characterized, it is clear that various forms of internationalism are in distress. These are at work both in producing violent conflagration and in generating moving populations across the globe (migrant labor, refugees, asylum seekers, exiles, emigres, etc.). How, then, can internationalism be thought and articulated anew? How can it productively and creatively address various modes of encounter and representation? How can it build on radical genealogies of international solidarity in ways that interlink vital discussions of borders and walls with the systemic relations of racial capitalism and its spatial fixes in the current conjuncture? The conference will bring together activist scholars/scholarly activists from across the disciplines and beyond in order to figure new dimensions of mobilization as and from migrations. The focus on movement and movements offers the possibility of constructive dialogue on specific spatial constellations in the present that does not lose sight of their historical constituents and political differences yet is willing to meet the challenge of their articulation.

Gallery Talk | Made in New York City: The Business of Folk Art: Exhibition Tour


Folk art has flourished in the heart of New York City since the eighteenth century, contrary to popular belief that it was a rural genre that reflected local tastes, traditions, and needs. Around 100 works of art by self-taught artists tell the story about New York City as the center of America’s financial and commercial world from two perspectives simultaneously: “The Art of Business” portrays the people and places that were part of the city’s thrumming commercial life, and “The Business of Art” highlights the diverse mediums and formats used by the artists, artisans, and manufacturers. This tour of the exhibition is conducted by museum gallery guides.

Forever changed by a night with an upper-class white family, young Victoria treads through life with the constant hope that she can return to this distant, tender memory.

An unforgettable, moving view into an often obscured part of our world. Suffering the recent loss of her beloved grandfather and newly committed to a career in journalism, Delphine Minoui decided to visit Iran for the first time since the revolution―since she was four years old.

Discussion | Narrating Diversity: Muslim Writers in Contemporary America


It is commonly said that we fear what we don’t understand. Living up to our American ideals requires us to understand our neighbors, our colleagues, and our friends despite our diverse backgrounds. Yet in recent years, Muslims in America have rarely been portrayed as nuanced and complex human beings, and most Americans say they don’t know a Muslim. Muslims for American Progress, a project of the Institute for Social Policy and Understanding, aims to change this narrative. Through human stories and hard facts, MAP quantifies Muslim contributions in Michigan and New York City.  In this special library event, you’ll be taking a special look at the important contributions of Muslims writers to American society, how they narrate diversity, and what their work can teach us more broadly about social, cultural and political life. Moustafa Bayoumi is an Author, Journalist, and Professor of English at CUNY, Brooklyn College and author of This Muslim American Life: Dispatches from the War of Terror and How Does it Feel to be a Problem? Being Young and Arab in America. Hamdan Azhar is a journalist, Data Scientist, and Co-Founder of the Muslim Writers Collective.   Aizzah Fatima is a Writer, Playwright, and Actress. Rowaida Abdelaziz is a journalist and social media editor at HuffPost, where she focuses on reporting and distributing news about US Muslim life and international affairs. She has has written numerous stories on the refugee crises in Syria, Yemen and other parts of the Arab world. This event will be moderated by Elisabeth Becker a Postdoctoral Fellow with the Religion & Its Publics project at UVA and the Institute for the Advanced Study of Culture, as well as a non-residential fellow with the Muslim Diaspora Initiative at the New America Foundation, a non-residential fellow with the Humility and Conviction in Public Life project at the University of Connecticut and the Principal Investigator of the MAP-NYC project with the Institute for Social Policy & Understanding, measuring the impact of Muslims on New York City.
