Lecture | Drug Politics: From AIDS to COVID-19 (virtual)


As some rich countries grapple with a shortage of coronavirus vaccines, and many poor countries worry about getting any at all, the role of pharmaceutical corporations - and specifically their monopolies on drugs and vaccines - has come under scrutiny. Again. The problem with access to coronavirus vaccines today traces its roots to the AIDS crisis that engulfed South Africa twenty years ago. We've designed a system that saves only the richest of us; the rest consigned to suffering and worse. If a global pandemic won't change it, what will? Join a public lecture with Achal Prabhala - based in Bangalore, India - who is the coordinator of the #AccessIBSA project, which campaigns for access to medicines in India, Brazil, and South Africa. Sean Jacobs, Assistant Professor of International Affairs, will introduce him. There will be time for Q&A following the lecture.

Book Discussion | Authors Discuss their New Books with Director of the Fordham University Press (virtual)


Jim Mackin and Matthew Spady will discuss their new books on history of NYC's Upper West Side and compare notes about what it's like to research and write a book for the first time. The moderator of this informal discussion will be Fred Nachbaur, Director of the Fordham University Press. Mackin's book, Notable New Yorkers of Manhattan's Upper West Side, is a compilation of stories of nearly 600 former residents who once called the Upper West Side home. While his focus is primarily on the 600, Mackin artfully slips in some fascinating facts and colorful stories about the neighborhood itself. Spady's book, The Neighborhood Manhattan Forgot: Audubon Park and the Families Who Shaped It, traces the complex history of an area of northern Manhattan that has evolved from acres of woodlands into a large, multi-ethnic, big-city neighborhood. The story he tells is framed by the lives of two families--the Grinnells and the Audubons. (Yes, that Audubon!)

Lecture | A History of Royal Scotland (virtual)


In 1603, one of the momentous events in history occurred when the Scottish King, James VI inherited the throne of England following the death of his cousin Elizabeth. He combined his two nations and called them Great Britain – and all subsequent kings and queens of Britain are his descendants to the present day. The telling of British royal history tends to focus on the English line, and their influence on England. Well here is your chance to hear the story of Scotland’s monarchs and their colourful and often bloody role in shaping Scotland and Britain.

Theater | Eugene O'Neill's A Touch of the Poet: One of His Finest Plays (virtual)


Proud and tempestuous Cornelius Melody (Con) owns a run-down inn and tavern near Boston in 1828. Laden with debt, Con clings to his tenuous identity as a landed gentleman and war hero and chastises his wife and daughter for actions that expose the family's humble Irish origins. When his daughter, Mary, falls in love with a wealthy American guest at their inn, Con's pride drives him to an explosive reckoning with his true place in the New World. Eugene O'Neill completed the play in 1942 but it was not performed until 1958, after his death. It has been produced on Broadway four times. Directed by Ciaran O'Reilly With Belle Aykroyd, Ciaran Byrne, Robert Cuccioli, Kate Forbes, Mary McCann, Andy Murray, David O'Hara, Tim Ruddy, David Sitler, and John C. Vennema
