Discussion | Managing Climate Risks: Financial Alternatives and Infrastructure (in-person and online)


Much of the current discussion of climate risk focuses on large-scale strategic change and public policy. However, the effects of climate change are already being seen today in essential sectors of the financial markets. Insurance and reinsurance companies are at the forefront of managing these risks, and if the insurance markets break down, it will have significant consequences for real estate and municipal financing. Insurance companies don’t only protect against catastrophic events. They also provide income-smoothing products to enable companies to mitigate exposures to increasingly volatile seasonal weather events. The panel, from two of the world’s largest reinsurance companies and a prominent independent think tank, will talk about the impact of climate change on the insurance markets and its knock-on effects in the financial markets, how communities can make themselves more resilient and better able to finance themselves, and how insurance derivatives can be used to measure non-catastrophic events such as extreme heat waves and deep freezes. Moderator: Adam Litke, Lecturer, Enterprise Risk Management; Chief Operating Officer, Pillar Life Insurance Panelists: Edward Boyanoski, Head of Property Underwriting - Global Specialty Insurance, Munich Re Rachel Halfaker, Associate Director, Milken Institute Rishu Ranjan, Global Head Weather & ECM, Swiss Re Corporate Solutions

Lecture | Haiti and the Fictions of History


A broad comparative meditation on modes of storytelling Haiti's past, specifically in the wake of increased and sudden mainstream attention to that history on such platforms as The New York Times ("Haiti: The Ransom Project") and HBO (Raoul Peck's Exterminate All the Brutes). Thinking through both Edouard Glissant's engagement with History/histories/stories from an Antillean perspective and Saidiya Hartman's fraught encounters with The Archive, Professor Kaiama Glover considers the prose fiction works of three contemporary Haitian women writers – Evelyne Trouillot, Edwidge Danticat, and Myriam Chancy – as historiographic interventions of a particular order.

Book Discussion | Over the Influence: Why Social Media Is Toxic for Women and Girls - And How We Can Take It Back (in-person and online)

Alaimo speaks these issues and her book with Madison Malone Kircher, a reporter covering internet culture for The New York Times.

Performance | The Perspective Project: Short Theater Works


The Outside/In ensemble creates community, connection and supports self-expression, providing rituals for success in the form of twice annual performances. Please come out and support the incredible ensemble as they present The Perspective Project. What is Outside/In? Stella Adler Arts Justice Division, created in 2001, identified a new strategic goal in 2013: to disrupt the school-to-prison pipeline. Arts Justice soon became the leading arts program provider at Rikers Island Correctional Facility. As students were released from jail, we wanted the program to support them during their re-entry transition. Outside/In was created to allow students to continue the vital work that began inside rehabilitation and to support their transition to daily civilian life. Today Outside/In is a transitional company of 100 members who create new, short works inspired by their personal experiences and current social issues. Returning citizens who have previously been incarcerated and people in residential addiction recovery programs are eligible for Outside/In. Conservatory students and alumni who have a deeply vested interest in art, theater and social good may volunteer to support the ensemble.

Concert | Klezmer Music Ensemble


Klezmer is an instrumental musical tradition of the Ashkenazi Jews of Central and Eastern Europe. The essential elements of the tradition include dance tunes, ritual melodies, and virtuosic improvisations played for listening; these would have been played at weddings and other social functions. The musical genre incorporated elements of many other musical genres including Ottoman (especially Greek and Romanian) music, Baroque music, German and Slavic folk dances, and religious Jewish music. As the music arrived in the United States, it lost some of its traditional ritual elements and adopted elements of American big band and popular music.

Opera | Opera & Democracy: Songs from Exile


The concert introduces two German-Jewish composers in American exile: Paul Aron and Rosy Geiger-Kullmann. Aron, a protagonist of the German interwar avant-garde, founded an opera company in New York in the 1950s to popularize the works of ?migr?s such as Darius Milhaud, Kurt Weill, Tadeusz Kassern, and Ernst Toch through piano arrangements and English translations. One of these - his English version of Toch's short opera Egon & Emilie - will be presented alongside exile songs by Aron. Geiger-Kullmann, a successful opera composer of the Weimar Republic, was born in Frankfurt and fled from the Nazis to New York and later to Monterey. Excerpts from her opera Columbus, written after her arrival in New York, and two stage works from her years in Germany have been reconstructed and will be performed in excerpts - a world premiere.
