Book Discussion | Pink Gold: Shrimp, Women and Work in Mexico


An ethnography of women seafood traders in Mexico with the author, María L. Cruz-Torres.  The “shrimp ladies,” locally known as changueras in southern Sinaloa, Mexico, sell seafood in open-air markets, forming an extralegal but key part of the economy built around this “pink gold.” Over time, they struggled to evolve from marginalized peddlers to local icons depicted in popular culture, even as they continue to work at an open-air street market. Pink Gold documents the shrimp traders’ resilience and resourcefulness, from their early conflicts with the city, state, and federal authorities and forming a union, to carving out a physical space for a seafood market, and even engaging in conflicts with the Mexican military. Drawing from her two decades of fieldwork, Cruz-Torres explores the inspiring narrative of this overlooked group of women involving grassroots politics, trans-border and familial networking, debt and informal economic practices, personal sacrifices, and simple courage. She argues that, amid intense economic competition, their success relies on group solidarity that creates interlocking networks of mutual trust, or confianza, that in turn enable them to cross social and political boundaries that would typically be closed to them. Ultimately, Pink Gold offers fresh insights into issues of gender and labor, urban public space, the street economy, commodities, and globalization.

Discussion | Braving a New World: Audio Theater & the Climate Crisis


Every artform can open us up to our own ability to take meaningful action on the climate crisis. The New School and the Climate Museum are delighted to co-present a program examining and presenting audio theater dedicated to this end. Storytelling holds great power across human cultures, and so does the oral tradition. The increasing variety and availability of contemporary audio culture, including podcasts and audiobooks, has generated renewed interest in audio theater--not widely heard since the radio dramas of the early twentieth century. This event will share work from artists focused on climate justice who are redefining ‘sound art’ forms. The panel will be moderated by Cecilia Rubino and Sarah Montague (The New School) and include Darian Dauchan (Poet/Musician), Chantal Bilodeau (Arts & Climate Initiative), Lanxing Fu (Superhero Club/Big Green Theater), and Ben Williams (Elevator Repair Service).

Film | Citizens (1986): Poland’s Solidarity Movement


This film portrays human dimensions of Poland’s Solidarity movement in 1980-81 that were obscured by Cold-War rhetoric: the efforts of workers, artists and intellectuals who joined together to create a thriving civil society within a totalitarian state. Solidarity activists describe how they learned that to protect their own interests they had to fight for the interests of Polish society as a whole. Their self-governing trade union won the trust and support of virtually all segments of society by providing the only available channel for the local grass-roots initiatives, open debate, and democratic action that ultimately led to non-violent systemic change in Poland and beyond. Director: Richard W. Adams Followed by a discussion with the director

Book Discussion | Committed: On Meaning and Madwomen


Suzanne Scanlon's raw and masterful memoir about becoming a woman and going mad—and doing both at once.   When Suzanne Scanlon was a student at Barnard in the 90s, grieving the loss of her mother—feeling untethered and swimming through inarticulable pain—she made a suicide attempt that landed her in the New York State Psychiatric Institute.   After nearly three years and countless experimental treatments, Suzanne left the ward on shaky legs. In the decades it took her to recover from the experience, Suzanne came to understand her suffering as part of something larger: a long tradition of women whose complicated and compromised stories of self-actualization are reduced to “crazy chick” and “madwoman” narratives. It was a thrilling discovery, and she searched for more books, more woman writers, as the journey of her life converged with her journey through the literature that shaped her.   Transporting, honest, and graceful, Committed is a story of discovery and recovery, reclaiming the idea of the madwoman as a template for insight and transcendence through the works of Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Virginia Woolf, Sylvia Plath, Janet Frame, Audre Lorde, Shulamith Firestone, and others.

Discussion | US Climate Leadership: Equity and Justice in the Green Transition


Communities across the U.S. are taking community-driven climate action by updating their infrastructure to reduce emissions and make urban life safer, healthier, and greener for everyone. But equity advocates want to make sure that the process of “greening” America’s infrastructure prioritizes those who are most impacted by climate change and pollution. From updating electrical systems in dense residential areas, to ensuring that communities of color are prepared for the boom in climate-related careers, advocates are working toward building cities in which everyone can thrive.  This is a discussion about equity, infrastructure, jobs, and the urban energy transition. Featuring the “father of environmental justice,” Dr. Robert Bullard (Texas Southern University, Bullard Center for Environmental & Climate Justice), Jade Begay (Indigenous Rights Advocate and Climate Researcher) and Leah Thomas (Intersectional Environmentalist), we’ll dig into the issues, opportunities, and solutions driving an equitable transformation for America.
