Discussion | The End of Peace: How Russia's Invasion of Ukraine Is Transforming Europe and Transatlantic Relations (online)


At this critical moment in history, political scientist Ivan Krastev helps us understand how Russia's invasion of Ukraine impacts the balance of power in Europe, transatlantic relations, and the future of democracy. How does the war change existing divisions, and what should the role of NATO, and by extension the U.S. government, be? Krastev, author of the recent New York Times op-ed "We Are All Living in Putin's World Now," sheds light on these questions as the situation changes rapidly on the ground. Krastev is the chairman of the Centre for Liberal Strategies and a permanent fellow at the Institute for Human Sciences, IWM Vienna, and the author of The Light that Failed: A Reckoning (with Stephen Holmes), about the backsliding of democracy in Central and Eastern Europe since 1989, among other books. He speaks with John Torpey, professor of sociology and history and director of the Ralph Bunche Institute for International Studies at the CUNY Graduate Center.

Lecture | Colonial Toxicity: France's Nuclear Heritage in the Sahara (in-person and online)


Between 1960 and 1966, the French colonial authorities detonated their first nuclear bombs in colonized Algerian Sahara. They secretly built two military bases: one in Reggane, in the Tanezrouft Plain, approximately 1,150 kilometers south of Algiers, and another one in in Ekker, in the Hoggar mountains, about 600 kilometers south-eastern of Reggane. The use of the Sahara as a nuclear firing field spread radioactive fallout across Africa and the Mediterranean and caus¬ed irreversible contaminations among human and nonhuman bodies, natural and built environments. This talk examines the spatialities and temporalities of France’s colonial toxicity in the Sahara and explores the lives and afterlives of radioactive debris and nuclear wastes. Speaker Samia Henni is an architectural historian and Assistant Professor of History of Architecture and Urbanism at the Department of Architecture, College of Architecture, Art and Planning, Cornell University.

Talk | Authentic Travel Photography in the Age of Instagram (online)


There's no doubt about it, social media like Instagram and Facebook has allowed photographers to reach much wider audiences. It's no longer necessary to pass the gatekeepers of magazine art directors and picture editors to share your photos with the world. The democratization of media has been a boon to photographers. But it's not without its pitfalls. Is authentic travel photography still possible in the age of the selfie and the influencer? In attempting to answer that question, Bob Krist will share the behind the scenes stories from assignments for National Geographic and other magazines, share concrete pointers about how to approach and photograph people on the road, and give a look at the thinking and the images that went into his award winning black and white monograph, Old Souls & Timeless Places. It's a thought-provoking and fun program, with lots of practical takeaways you can use.

Discussion | Defiance in Connecticut: "When Southbury Said No" (online)


On October 1, 1937, Wolfgang Jung purchased 178 acres of land in Southbury, Connecticut for the German-American Bund to build a Nazi camp. The residents of Southbury fought back against this Nazi invasion of their town. Organized by the Reverend M.E.N. Lindsay, the Reverend Felix Manley, and town leaders, the townspeople established a zoning commission whose first ordinance forbade land usage in the town for "military training or drilling with or without arms except by the legally constituted armed forces of the United States of America." The ruling effectively closed Southbury to the Bund. The Museum and the Jewish Federation of Western Connecticut join together to explore this remarkable story. This is a discussion between Rebecca Erbelding, historian, archivist, and curator at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum; Arnie Bernstein, author of Swastika Nation: Fritz Kuhn & the Rise and Fall of the German-American Bund; and Melinda K. Elliott, president of the Southbury Historical Society; moderated by Rabbi Eric Polokoff, found Rabbi of B'nai Israel of Southbury. The program will be accompanied by a virtual screening of the documentary Home of the Brave: When Southbury Said No to the Nazis. Registrants will receive a private link to stream the film one week before the program.

Discussion | In Their Own Words: Ukrainian Refugees Staying With Polish Families (online)

This series is about portraits of the refugees and the local people who host them.

Lecture | The Mills Building: Skyscraper Construction in New York City in the Early 1880s (online)


A lecture by Alexander Wood will focus on George. B. Post's Mills Building, completed in 1882. One of the earliest and largest office blocks in the Wall Street financial district, the 10-story Mills Building, at the corner of Broad Street and Exchange Place, offers a perfect case study of the issues raised in the series. The lecture draws on Wood's research for his recent dissertation at Columbia University's Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation, "Building the Metropolis: Architecture, Building, and Labor in New York City, 1880-1935." The construction of tall buildings in New York in the late 19th century transformed the business of building. Wood will explore how architects, general contractors, and subcontractors organized construction to meet the needs of speculative real estate development and worked together to build more efficiently within a congested urban environment. Using new construction methods, techniques, and equipment, a new generation of professionals, manufacturers, and contractors became major players in the city's building industry for decades to come.

Discussion | Historical and Climatic Perspectives on Persistent Drought in East Africa (online)


Historians and climate scientists are increasingly collaborating with each other. One goal is to better understand our past climate at a higher resolution at local or regional scales. While we know much about how the climate has changed over the course of human history at a global or hemispheric level, the complicated dynamics at regional and sub-regional levels means there is much still to learn and historical evidence can help by anchoring climate events in time. Another goal is to better understand history through our knowledge of the climate by bringing paleoclimatology into historical research, especially before the twentieth century. This event will present one approach to collaboration between a historian and paleoclimatologist that draws on evidence from lakes in Kenya, Uganda, and Tanzania, from new high-resolution paleoclimatological products that offer annual reconstructions of the hydroclimate drawing on proxies, and from oral traditions societies in the region. The aim of this approach is to better understand multi-decadal droughts in East Africa in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. By combining these different kinds of evidence, despite the range of uncertainties each contains, it is possible to start to develop a more granular understanding of the droughts and of the range of human response to them.

Book Club | The Dawning of the Apocalypse: The Roots of Slavery, White Supremacy, Settler Colonialism, and Capitalism in the Long Sixteenth Century by Gerald Horne (online)


The group discusses acclaimed historian Gerald Horne’s deeply researched, riveting revision of the "creation myth" of settler colonialism and how the United States was formed. Gerald Horne argues forcefully that, in order to understand the arrival of colonists from the British Isles in the early seventeenth century, one must first understand the "long sixteenth century"—from 1492 until the arrival of settlers in Virginia in 1607—and thereby trouble American settler colonialism’s creation myth.

Book Discussion | Trace and Aura. The Recurring Lives of St. Ambrose of Milan


Patrick Boucheron, one of the foremost medievalists of our time, will present his groundbreaking work on history and memory that goes well beyond the life of this influential saint, Trace and Aura. The Recurring Lives of St. Ambrose of Milan recently translated in English and published by Other Press. Elected bishop of Milan by popular acclaim in 374, Ambrose went on to become one of the four original Doctors of the Church. There is much more to this book, however, than the captivating story of the bishop who baptized Saint Augustine in the fourth century. Trace and Aura investigates how a crucial figure from the past can return in different guises over and over again, in a city that he inspired and shaped through his beliefs and political convictions. His recurring lives actually span more than ten centuries, from the fourth to the sixteenth.

Discussion | The Infodemic: An Assault on Truth in the Time of COVID-19 (online)


A conversation about censorship and the pandemic. One overlooked aspect of COVID-19 is that autocrats around the world--in China, Russia, Egypt, Iran, Brazil, India, and the Trump White House--have used the pandemic to censor information and flood the airwaves with lies, in the name of crisis management. As a result, democratic institutions and governance across the globe have vastly deteriorated, and the effects may be felt long after the pandemic is over. Nick Lemann will moderate a conversation between authors Joel Simon and Robert Mahoney, longtime senior leaders of the Committee to Protect Journalists, Dr. Wafaa El-Sadr founder and director of ICAP, and investigative journalist Sheila Coronel discussing how to use the pandemic experience to strengthen our information ecosystem--and restore trust in our democratic institutions worldwide.

Book Discussion | Left in the Center: The Liberal Party of New York and the Rise and Fall of American Social Democracy (online)


New York has a long history of small political parties that offer voters options beyond a two-party system. But what shapes those parties’ success in electing candidates? Historian Daniel Soyer traces the dramatic story of the Liberal Party, active from 1944 to 2002. The party helped elect politicians at all levels of government, and provided a political voice for labor activists, independent liberals, and social democrats. In this event, Messinger will join Soyer for a conversation about the history of this party, its successes and pitfalls, and its resonance for politics toda

Lecture | How Central Asia Became Part of the Developing World (online)


A lecture by Artemy Kalinovsky, Professor of Russian, Soviet, and post-Soviet Studies at Temple University. Moderated by Alexander Cooley (Barnard College). During the Soviet period, official narratives presented Central Asia as a former colony that had been integrated on equal terms into the USSR while overcoming economic backwardness. This ambiguity was useful for Moscow’s Cold War politics and also shaped how Central Asian actors maneuvered within the Soviet system. In the late Soviet period, this ambiguity was largely abandoned. Some Central Asians began to insist on the region’s colonial status, while economists and sociologists in Moscow argued that Soviet development efforts had failed and that the region was culturally too different to fit into socialist economic schemes. In this talk, Kalinovsky will trace how different groups within the USSR can the late Soviet period came to reimagine Central Asia as a part of the Third World, discarding the ambiguity of earlier decades. These views also had profound implications for the region’s post-independence transformation: Western development professionals who came to Central Asia after 1991 found the region much more developed than other places they had worked. That also changed over the course of the 1990s, in part because of the continuing influence of Russian scholars, and in part as a result of the development community’s evolving understanding of regional challenges (informed, to a large extent, by local scholars), a change that was solidified with the post 9-11 turn to the Global War on Terror.

Lecture | Playing the Paradox of Basquiat, an American artist who rose to success during the 1980s (online)


Even as Jean-Michel Basquiat's imagery has become commonplace and biographical narratives continue to be produced and reproduced, the artwork's critical substance gets lost. Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960 - 1988) was an American artist who rose to success during the 1980s as part of the Neo-expressionism movement. Basquiat first achieved fame as part of the graffiti duo SAMO, alongside Al Diaz, writing enigmatic epigrams in the cultural hotbed of Manhattan's Lower East Side during the late 1970s, where rap, punk, and street art coalesced into early hip-hop music culture. Basquiat critiqued the very system that extracts and manipulates Black genius and the people who profit from it: from the corporate collector who will pay anything to authenticate forgeries to the academic scholars who will ensure that transaction; or the curators who attempt to possess Basquiat as if he is territory to be claimed; to the playwrights and screenwriters reinventing narratives with bold conjecture. What if this level of exploitation is just par for the course for a famous artist? Is it reasonable to object if Basquiat was just as ambitious as the actors above? This lecture plays against the paradox of Basquiat and the mounting stakes of his legacy. Speaker J. Faith Almiron is a longtime educator, organizer, and writer based in Nyack, New York. Her critical essays have appeared in LA Review of Books, Hyperallergic, LitHub, and ArtNews.

Concert | The Vienna Jewish Choir: Reviving Yiddish Song (in-person and online)


A breathtaking performance of Jewish music that has been passed down through generations. The revival of Yiddish song is the central concern of the Vienna Jewish Choir. We use music to build bridges between different cultures. And within our community, which is diverse in every respect, we also live the principle of intercultural understanding. The Vienna Jewish Choir is actually a folk song choir: we breathe new life into those songs that have been passed down through generations and almost perished with European Jewry, on stage and with CDs and DVDs, thus demonstrating that Jewish music once again has a firm place in today's rich Viennese cultural scene. After trips to so many cities with smaller or bigger Jewish populations the choir is finally aimed at New York, where the Klezmer revival started and where so many Jewish composers, singers and performers have been successful. In the week of Yom haShoa the Vienna Jewish Choir under the direction of Roman Grinberg has scheduled four concerts titled "Mir leybn eybik" in Manhattan, Westchester County and Long Island. We come to New York with a repertoire of commemoration, hope and peace. Songs in Yiddish, Hebrew, and Ladino. The connection to and performance with local rabbis and cantors will create new musical bonds.
