Party | Traditional English Afternoon Tea


English-style tea, black tea, Pally's rich tea biscuit will be served. “There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea.” Henry James Afternoon tea, that most quintessential of English customs is, perhaps surprisingly, a relatively new tradition. While the custom of drinking tea dates back to the third millennium BC in China and was popularised in England during the 1660s by King Charles II and his wife the Portuguese Infanta Catherine de Braganza, it was not until the mid 19th century that the concept of ‘afternoon tea’ first appeared. Afternoon tea was introduced in England by Anna, the seventh Duchess of Bedford, in the year 1840. The Duchess would become hungry around four o’clock in the afternoon. The evening meal in her household was served fashionably late at eight o’clock, thus leaving a long period of time between lunch and dinner. The Duchess asked that a tray of tea, bread and butter (some time earlier, the Earl of Sandwich had had the idea of putting a filling between two slices of bread) and cake be brought to her room during the late afternoon. This became a habit of hers and she began inviting friends to join her. This pause for tea became a fashionable social event. During the 1880’s upper-class and society women would change into long gowns, gloves and hats for their afternoon tea which was usually served in the drawing room between four and five o’clock.

Lecture | The Formula: Quantifying Careers from Science to Art


Common wisdom goes something like this: Performance drives success, hence work hard and success will follow. But as we’ve all witnessed, that’s not always the case. This talk aims to quantify success in science and arts by realizing that while your performance is about you, your success is about “us”—meaning that success is a collective and measurable quantity that captures how your peers observe and recognize your performance. This approach allows us to explore, using the tools of science, the emergence of impact, and quantify our ability to measure and predict success. Speaker Albert-László Barabási is director at Center for Complex Network Research at Northeastern University, and holds appointments at Division of Network Medicine at Harvard Medical School and Dept of Network and Data Sciences at Central European University.

Lecture | Immigration Status and Higher Education: Evidence from a Large Public University


Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is the first large-scale immigration reform to affect undocumented immigrants in the United States in decades and offers eligible undocumented youth temporary relief from deportation and renewable work permits. While DACA has improved the economic conditions and mental health of undocumented immigrants, we do not know how DACA improves social mobility through its effect on educational attainment. This talk uses administrative data on students attending a large public university to estimate the effect of DACA on undocumented students’ educational outcomes.

Author Reading | Toscanini: Musician of Conscience


By the late 1920s, Arturo Toscanini - then in his early sixties - was music director of La Scala in Milan and the New York Philharmonic, and beyond a doubt the most celebrated conductor in the world. But his hatred of Mussolini's fascist regime was beginning to become public knowledge. He declared that he would not perform again in Italy unless and until the fascist regime fell, and he extended his protest to Germany in 1933, when Hitler came to power, and to Austria in 1938, when that country became part of the Third Reich.

Classical Music | Ljova's Moving Pieces: An Adventurous Eveming of Music for Strings


Russian-born, New York–based composer and performer Ljova appears for an adventurous evening of his music for strings, featuring an expanded ensemble with members of the PUBLIQuartet, Secret Quartet, and special guests. Ljova's music has been performed by Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble, Louisville Orchestra, Brooklyn Rider, The Knights, A Far Cry, and many others. He is the leader of Ljova and the Kontraband, and a composer of numerous scores for film and dance. The music gleefully defies categorization and packs an emotional wallop.
