Discussion | Object America III: Observational Practices Through Speculation


In the face of an administration that is trying to "Make America Great Again" by shaking the very tenets of US democracy, we are asking ourselves anew — as teachers, as citizens, as researchers — what is America? Who and what does it stand for and what does it mean? The Observational Practices Lab launches a multi-phase project and investigation to explore the idea of “America” through everyday objects. The aim is to use comparative research and observational methods—which may range from the scientific to the absurd—to expose unseen histories and speculate about the future of the country as a concept. The contemporary global media landscape is fast-moving and undercut by “fake news” and “alternative facts” which demands that students and researchers build a repertoire of strategies to assess and respond to sources of information.

Lecture | All In: The Potential Consequences of Donald Trump’s Dangerous Embrace of Saudi Arabia’s Foreign Policy


Donald Trump has enthusiastically endorsed virtually every foreign policy move made by Saudi Arabia, from doubling down on support for its war in Yemen, to endorsing its blockade of Qatar, to giving his blessing to Saudi maneuverings to change the character of a fragile political coalition in Lebanon.  Add to this Saudi and US efforts to isolate Iran, possibly including stepped up military action against Iran or its allies in the region, yet another conflict in a region already suffering from multiple wars seems possible. How likely is a new Mideast war, and what changes in US policy are needed to make a new conflict less likely? Speaker Bill Hartung is the Director of the Arms and Security Project at the Center for International Policy.

Tour | Dyker Heights Christmas Lights Tour


When people think about holiday decorations in New York City, they usually think of the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree and the lavish store window displays. But some of the best sights to be seen are actually in Dyker Heights, Brooklyn. Starting in the 1980’s, Christmas started getting bigger and brighter out in Brooklyn with each passing year. Expect to see massive, professionally- done light displays (some costing upwards of $20,000!). There is an unspoken competition among the home owners in the neighborhood, so some have added huge lawn ornaments and motorized displays, making for a lavish holiday spectacle. Dyker Heights has truly become a “must-see” for many people during the holidays.
