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.” This tour repeats every Monday.

Film | Tip of My Tongue (2017): 12 New Yorkers Make a Movie


To celebrate her 50th birthday, filmmaker Lynne Sachs gathers together other people, men and women who have lived through precisely the same years but come from places like Iran or Cuba or Australia or the Lower East Side, not Memphis, Tennessee where Sachs grew up. She invites 12 fellow New Yorkers -- born across several continents in the 1960s -- to spend a weekend with her making a movie. Together they discuss some of the most salient, strange and revealing moments of their lives in a brash, self-reflexive examination of the way in which uncontrollable events outside our own domestic universe impact who we are. 80 min. Followed by a Q&A with director Lynne Sachs, hosted and moderated by Amir Husak, Director of Documentary Studies and Assistant Professor in the School of Media Studies.

Author Reading | You Know You Want This


When “Cat Person” appeared in the New Yorker in December 2017 it quickly took Book Twitter by storm. The short story centers on a young woman's experience dating in a sleepy college town, but with decidedly skin-crawling twists. You Know You Want This is Kristen Roupenian's highly anticipated debut collection of stories that explore the ways in which women are horrifying as much as it captures the horrors that are done to them. Spanning a range of topics and genres, it is darkly funny, delightfully cringeworthy, and compulsively readable. Kristen Roupenian graduated from Barnard and holds a PhD in African Literature from Harvard. She is a Zell Fellow in the University of Michigan MFA program, and she has received numerous awards for her work.

Lecture | An Overlooked Type Designer on Her Centennial


Gudrun Zapf has been cited as the first woman who made a career as a type designer. Her Diotima type as been called the greatest type of the twentieth century. Yet, despite a couple of monographs, Gudrun Zapf’s work as a calligrapher, type designer, and bookbinder is not very well known. No doubt this is partly due to her being overshadowed by her tremendously talented husband, Hermann Zapf, who also worked in the fields of calligraphy and type design; and partly it is because of Gudrun's modest and self-effacing nature. This lecture will dive deeper into the work of this exceptional artist, who has made a major contribution to the worlds of alphabet design and book art.

Poetry Reading | CANCELLED! Bertolt Brecht Out Loud CANCELLED!


Some of today’s most captivating poets perform Bertolt Brecht’s funny, heartbreaking, personal, and political verse. Featuring Adam Fitzgerald Paul Muldoon (with musician David Mansfield) Eileen Myles Amber Tamblyn Though he is widely regarded as the greatest German playwright of the twentieth century, among English readers it is less known that all the while Bertolt Brecht was doing double duty as a poet. Touching on subjects from chess to war to sex, he composed more than 2,000 poems, though fewer than half were published in his lifetime. Translators David Constantine and Tom Kuhn have made 1,200 of Brecht’s poems available to English readers in The Collected Poems of Bertolt Brecht, the most comprehensive collection of his poetry to date. To celebrate this monumental achievement, contemporary poets will gather to read aloud and perform poems that illustrate his ever-lasting lust for life.

Discussion | Is Gay Liberation Academic?


A roundtable of university faculty reflect on gay liberation – a movement whose story cannot be told without Stonewall – and consider to what extent liberation is an “academic” question, in both senses of the term. Among the issues to be explored: the contested legacies of Stonewall; the college’s role, then and now; shifts and changes wrought by the last 50 years; and the promises and challenges of queer futures, in and beyond the academy. The panel brings together leading scholars from across campus: -- Kwame Anthony Appiah, Professor of Philosophy and Law, Arts & Science and School of Law -- Caroline Dorsen, Assistant Professor, Rory Meyers School of Nursing -- A.B. Huber, Gallatin School of Individualized Study -- Ann Pellegrini, Professor of Performance Studies and Social and Cultural Analysis, Tisch School of the Arts -- Kenji Yoshino, Chief Justice Warren Professor of Constitutional Law, School of Law

Hear about lessons learned and how these artists were able to create visual tools that were culturally sensitive and responsive to the communities they were partnering with.

Discussion | We Will Have Been Living Otherwise: Archiving in the Future Perfect Tense


We tend to think of an archive as a repository of memories, things, and documents from the past, or as a technique that turns or arrests the present into a past. What kind of archive safeguards, keeps company with, or “summons,” a past that the present hasn’t yet caught up with? Can such a past or such an archive be summoned to haunt the present as an alternative?

Author Reading | Trump Sky Alpha: A Satire of Apocalypse


Twice a week, the president pilots his ultraluxury airship Trump Sky Alpha (seats start at $50,000), delivering, as he travels between DC, NYC, and Mar-a-Lago, a streaming YouTube address to the nation, in which he trumpets his successes and blasts his enemies—until the day his words plunge the world into nuclear war. One year later, with 90 percent of the world’s population destroyed, a journalist named Rachel has taken refuge in the Twin Cities Metro Containment Zone. Rachel goes on assignment to document the final throes of humor on the internet in those moments before the end, hoping along the way to discover the final resting place of her wife and daughter. Mark Doten, a satirist of unparalleled vision, brilliantly details how the internet has infiltrated every aspect of our lives, laying the groundwork for the tumult of our current political moment, and, in the kaleidoscopic, queer, all-consuming, parallactic swirl of Trump Sky Alpha, for the future headed our way.

Author Reading | Witches, Witch-Hunting, and Women: Today's Violence Against Women


The world is witnessing a new surge of interpersonal and institutional violence against women, including new witch hunts. This surge of violence has occurred alongside an expansion of capitalist social relation. In this new work, Silvia Federici examines the root causes of these developments and outlines the consequences for the women affected and their communities. She argues, that this new war on women, a mirror of witch hunts in 16th- and 17th-century Europe and the “New World,” is a structural element of the new forms of capitalist accumulation. These processes are founded on the destruction of people’s most basic means of reproduction. Like at the dawn of capitalism, the factors behind today’s violence against women are processes of enclosure, land dispossession, and the remolding of women’s reproductive activities and subjectivity. Silvia Federici is a feminist writer, teacher, and militant. In 1972 she was co-founder of the International Feminist Collective that launched the campaign for Wages for Housework internationally. Her previous books include Caliban and the Witch and Revolution at Point Zero. She is a professor emerita at Hofstra University, where she was a social science professor.

Many know the contributions of Paul Robeson and even Ira Aldridge, but do you know Henrietta Vinton Davis, the celebrated Shakespearean tragedienne who later became the right hand of Marcus Garvey? Come share, learn, and be inspired.
