Quito's first subway line, currently under construction, will offer citizens reduced travel times, reduced travel costs, safer, and a more reliable mode of transportation. The Metro stations along the corridor are likely to catalyze a polycentric model of urban redevelopment on this city that has seen one of the most accelerated rates of sprawl in the region. Quito's municipality has recently begun a planning and urban regulation initiative to foster compact, mixed use, and dense urban development in the influence areas of the Metro stations. Speaker Jacobo Herdoiza is Secretary of Territory, Habitat, and Housing at the Metropolitan Municipality of Quito, Ecuador.

Lecture |


Representations of violence abound in ancient Egyptian art and texts, where the figure of the smiting king is one of the longest enduring images. Trampling the nine bows with every step or recounting his victories in far away territories, the king is featured as a victorious conqueror who defeats Egypt’s enemies with vigor and violence. Many of these representations belong, however, to the royal sphere, and this paper will explore New Kingdom tomb art, autobiographical texts, stelae, and other objects to consider the image of the violent king among the elite and its own concepts of violence. Speaker Niv Allon received his PhD in Egyptology from Yale University in 2014. That same year, he joined the Metropolitan Museum of Art as an assistant curator in the Department of Egyptian Art.

A murder mystery, a ghost story, and two cultural tourists collide in Hari Kunzru’s spellbinding novel White Tears, which connects contemporary cultural appropriation and white hawkers of black music with the history of racism and the forgotten geniuses of American music and Delta Mississippi Blues.

New York City is a mecca for graffiti and street art, making it a very attractive playground for artists from around the world. Bushwick, in a working class district on the north side of Brooklyn adjacent to Williamsburg, has been attracting artists for some time now. The neighborhood has a fair collection of art studios and galleries, but it’s Bushwick’s industrial landscape that’s attracting the street artist. If you came looking for 1960′s Greenwich Village, you’ll find something brewing in Bushwick.
