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.

What does democratic entropy mean, exactly? For Tocqueville, the answer is simple: it refers to a tragic equation of democratic principles; in sum, all principles grow extreme when put into democratic practice. For example, liberty becomes omnipotence, equality becomes egalitarianism, and individuation becomes individualism. How do we currently define the condition of democracy? And what tools are available to bridge the gap between democratic principles and practices? Institutional tools are needed, surely, but also tools for citizens, linked to civil society.  Speaker Cynthia Fleury is Associate Professor of Philosophy at the American University of Paris.

Anthropologists are well aware that there are wars in the Middle East and Sub-Saharan Africa, areas where humans have existed the longest. But rarely do we suggest that the roots of these conflicts are competition for natural resources, ie, fighting for access to farming and grazing land and access to water. Madagascar has been populated by humans for only a few thousand years, yet a shocking portion of its natural resources has been destroyed. Today it is the 6th poorest country on Earth. This grinding human poverty, where 70% of the population is malnourished, is partially caused by destruction of natural resources by fires since human arrival. This talk will discuss the current political and economic situation in Madagascar and offer two possible predictions for Madagascar of the future. These predictions could apply globally.

Discussion |


The stories we tell today about our era of uncertainty and transformation will not only contribute to the shape of tomorrow but also will create the record that future historians will look to when studying our time. How writers see today’s events and how they choose to relate them are subjects for enduring exploration. What are the national events worth covering, the global picture that needs rendering, the perceived consequences of what is happening at the present moment? Sam Tanenhaus, the former editor of The New York Times Book Review, moderates conversations featuring contributors to some of America’s greatest and most enduring publications: The New York Review of Books, The New Yorker, and The New York Times.
