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.

Lecture | The Global Rush to Foreign Direct Investment


The 20th century ended with a proliferation of global and regional free trade and investment agreements aimed at breaking down obstacles and barriers to the movement of goods and capital. Since the beginning of the 21st century and even more after the outbreak of the financial crisis in 2008, however, things have begun to change. Foreign investment, in principle, continues to be welcome. However, suspicions and fears about foreign investments have gradually grown. To this have contributed, on the one hand, the weakening of traditional financial, industrial and social structures; on the other, China’s increasingly ambitious economic and geopolitical expansionism policy. In some countries, this distrust and fears have been wisely exploited at the political level and placed at the base of a more general neo-protectionist agenda, as demonstrated by the experience of the Trump administration. How it possible to reconcile the objective of attracting foreign investments and thus promoting economic development with the need to protect national security and strategic interests? The talk will answer this question by looking at the situation in the EU, the US, and China. With: Giulio Napolitano, Professor, Roma Tre University

Lecture | From "Mutter der Kompanie" to Madam Europe: Ursula von der Leyen and the Pursuit of Gender Equality


Despite having served in all four Merkel cabinets, Ursula von der Leyen often faces substantial opposition within her own Christian Democratic party, due to her unorthodox leadership style and her curiously strong stance on many gender equality issues. Although von der Leyen refuses to label herself a feminist, she ironically became the driving force behind many policies that have fundamentally transformed the national gender regime since 2005. Her tenure as Germany’s first female defense minister was no less controversial than the surprise nomination rendering her the first woman President of the European Commission in July 2019, where she immediately announced an ambitious agenda to level the playing field between women and men. But has she perhaps set the bar too high? Presuming that past performance is the best predictor of future actions, this talk reviews von der Leyen’s extensive record on equality policies in Germany, then addresses the conundrum posed by the great expectations her appointment has raised at the EU level, where she faces many new structural limitations in her efforts to mediate between the European Parliament and the Council of Ministers. A talk by Joyce Mushaben, which will review Ursula von der Leyen's extensive record on equality policies in Germany. The talk will be followed by a conversation between Mushaben and Christian Martin.

Author Reading | Self-Devouring Growth: A Planetary Parable as Told from Southern Africa


Under capitalism, economic growth is seen as the key to collective well-being. Author Julie Livingston upends this notion, showing that while consumption-driven growth may seem to benefit a particular locale, it produces a number of unacknowledged, negative consequences that ripple throughout the wider world. Structuring the book as a parable in which the example of Botswana has lessons for the rest of the globe, Livingston shows how fundamental needs for water, food, and transportation become harnessed to what she calls self-devouring growth.

Author Reading | 2 New Books: If Men, Then / The Power Notebooks


If Men, Then, Eliza Griswold’s second poetry collection, charts a radical spiritual journey through catastrophe. Griswold’s language is forthright and intimate as she steers between the chaos of a tumultuous inner world and an external landscape littered with SUVs, CBD oil, and go bags, talismans of our time. Alternately searing and hopeful, funny and fraught, the poems explore the world’s fracturing through the collapse of the ego, embodied in a character named “I”—a soul attempting to wrestle with itself in the face of an unfolding tragedy. In informal musings and notes, Katie Roiphe's The Power Notebooks delves into treacherous, largely untalked about, contradictions of contemporary womanhood, going where few writers dare. The Power Notebooks is Roiphe’s most vital, thought provoking, and emotionally intimate work yet.
