Tour | Tour of Gracie Mansion, Home of New York's Mayors


In 1799, a prosperous New York merchant named Archibald Gracie built a country house overlooking a bend in the East River, five miles north of the then-New York City limits. Little did he know that, more than 200 years later, his home would be serving as the official residence of the First Family of New York City - a place where history is made, not merely recorded. As a historic house museum run by the Parks Department, sitting on 11 acres of grounds now known as Carl Schurz Park, Gracie Mansion has served as the home of 10 mayors, beginning first with Mayor Fiorello H. La Guardia in 1942. Today, Gracie Mansion is occupied by the de Blasio family, which has opened its doors in the spirit of the administration's motto: one city, rising together. In keeping with that theme, Mayor de Blasio and First Lady Chirlane McCray have introduced a new art installation, titled “Windows on the City: Looking Out at Gracie’s New York.” Tours take place at 10am, 11am, 2pm, and 3pm.

Lecture | Women in Extremist Movements: A Global Phenomenon and Its Consequences


Sylvia Maier, Clinical Associate Professor at the Center for Global Affairs, will discuss the role of women in extremist groups and attacks. Women’s participation in hate and extremist movements—on the right as well as the left—is, in itself, not new. More than one and a half million women were members of terrorist organizations such as the WKKK, PKK, or the FARC. What is new, are the growing leadership and operational roles women assume in extremist movements around the globe.

Author Reading | Megan Elias discusses her book Food on the Page: Cookbooks and American Culture


In the first comprehensive history of American cookbooks, Megan J. Elias chronicles cookbook publishing from the early 1800s to the present day. Following food writing through trends such as the Southern nostalgia that emerged in the late nineteenth century, the Francophilia of the 1940s, countercultural cooking in the 1970s, and today's cult of locally sourced ingredients, she reveals that what we read about food influences us just as much as what we taste.

Talk | Reconstructing the Man of Steel: Early Superman and His Jewish American Context


It is often claimed that Superman is Jewish, but the arguments in favor of this claim do not always stand up to critical scrutiny. This talk will discuss some of the most common ways in which Superman has been figured as Jewish and deconstruct some of the most common parallels drawn, in order to then re-construct the Man of Steel in a different way. By the end of the talk, Superman will stand as a figure rooted not in European Jewish culture and folklore, nor in the Torah, but in the Jewish American context in which he was born. Speaker Martin Lund is an assistant professor of religious studies at Södertörn University in Stockholm, Sweden.

Author Reading | Emily Apter discusses her book Unexceptional Politics: On Obstruction, Impasse, and the Impolitic


One way to grasp the nature of politics is to understand the key terms in which it is discussed. Unexceptional Politics develops a political vocabulary drawn from a wide range of media (political fiction, art, film, and TV), highlighting the scams, imbroglios, information trafficking, brinkmanship, and parliamentary procedures that obstruct and block progressive politics. The book reviews and renews modes of thinking about micropolitics that counter notions of the “state of exception” embedded in theories of the “political” from Thomas Hobbes to Carl Schmitt.

Discussion | Labor and the 21st Century Shop


America's working class is found less and less on the factory floor, despite the image conjured by rightwing demagogues. So what does this new organizing landscape look like? What are the challenges faced when organizing the 21st-century shop floor—the restaurants, retail floors, and graduate student lounges? How should the labor move forward in an economy increasingly dependent on the precariousness of waged workers? These topics and more will be discussed by labor organizers Bianca Cunningham (Communication Workers of America, NYC-DSA Labor Branch, and the DSA AfroSocialist and Socialists of Color Caucus), Tania Bhattacharyya (Graduate Workers of Columbia-UAW Local 2110), and labor lawyer Benjamin Dictor (Eisner & Dictor, P.C.).

Film | Anastasiya Starozhytska's The War of Chimeras (2017): Documentary on Russian Aggression


This strikingly graphic and honest documentary is about the human toll of the ongoing Russian aggression against Ukraine that started in 2014 with the annexation of Crimea and was immediately followed by the Russian occupation of parts of southeastern Ukraine. It travels through the war zone, documenting such dramatic events as the Ilovaisk encirclement, among others, in an attempt to understand the essence of the war and how it affects people. 94 min.

Performance | Space as Material: An Evening of Spatial Sound Works


Two leading figures in the field of spatial sound create immersive, large-scale works. Sound is used to heighten listeners' spatial awareness and encourage a focused listening practice from within an encompassing field. Both artists take a different approach to surround sound studio composition than the more typical one that attempts to represent "virtual" space and aims for transferability into a variety of settings, including the concert hall. Instead, Neumann's and Schumacher's pieces represent, not sound in space, but rather space in sound.
