Discussion | Lives in Limbo: The Need for Multilateral Response to the Venezuelan Crisis in Latin America (online)


According to the United Nations, there are nearly 6 million Venezuelan migrants and refugees worldwide who have fled over the past few years due to a complex humanitarian, political, and economic crisis in the country, making it the second-largest mass migration crisis in the world, second only to Syria. The majority of these Venezuelans have fled by foot, bus, or other transport within Latin America, most notably to nations like Colombia, Brazil, Chile, among others. From the expansion of the refugee definition to include Venezuelans, to national temporary statuses, to more extreme policies of expulsion and deportation, the regional response in Latin America to Venezuelan migrants has posed a set of challenges for migrants as well as the nations receiving them. This panel will discuss the varying responses of nations to the Venezuelan migration crisis and the need for multilateral response in the face of crisis and how national migration policy towards Venezuelans reflects international responsibility in protecting the rights of Venezuelans abroad.

Gallery Talk | Woody Guthrie: People Are the Song: Exhibition Preview (online)


The author of more than three thousand folk songs, Woody Guthrie (1912–1967) is one of the most influential songwriters and recording artists in American history. He is an icon of the Depression era and wrote the world’s most famous protest song, “This Land Is Your Land.” But he was not only a songwriter, and his subject matter extended well beyond labor politics. The full corpus of his creativity—including lyrics, poetry, artwork, and largely unpublished prose writings—encompassed topics such as the environment, love, sex, spirituality, family, and racial justice. Guthrie created a personal philosophy that has impacted generations of Americans and inspired musician-activists from Pete Seeger and Bruce Springsteen to Ani DiFranco and Chuck D. As Bob Dylan noted of Guthrie, “You could listen to his songs and actually learn how to live.” The Morgan’s upcoming exhibition tells the story of this great American troubadour and writer through an extraordinary selection of instruments, manuscripts, objects, photographs, books, art, and audiovisual media, assembled from the preeminent Guthrie holdings of the Woody Guthrie Center and the private collection of Barry and Judy Ollman.

Discussion | New Utopias: Can We Heal the Wounds of the Past? (online)


Recent debates over racism and inequality highlight the enduring impact of past wrongs and historical injustices on social relations today. Instances of police and civic violence on both sides of the Atlantic demonstrate how prejudice still runs deep, despite the progress achieved by civil rights advocates since the 1960s. A renewed focus on systemic racism reveals the degree to which the legacy of prejudice and discrimination continues to shape political institutions and power relations today. At the same time, in recent years, we have witnessed many efforts aimed at reconciling with the past: from museums and commemorations to school curricula and artistic productions. We must ask ourselves if our societies will fully come to terms with their violent past. What are the long-term effects of racism on human behavior and social structures? How can the trauma of discrimination be overcome? How can societies rebuild trust with communities that have suffered and continue to suffer egregious injustices? How can we move beyond simply acknowledging the past to rebuilding a sense of common purpose among the many groups that constitute our societies? Moderator: Mirna Safi, Professor of Sociology, Sciences Po Panelists: Soulaymane Bachir Diagne, Professor of French and Philosophy, Columbia University Sarah Gensburger, Research Professor in Political Science and History, CNRS Courtney Cogburn, Associate Professor of Social Work, Columbia University

Lecture | Cosmic Probes of the Dark Sector (online)


In this talk, Dr. Chanda Prescod-Weinstein will describe her efforts to understand the nature of the mysterious dark matter. She will give some insight into how she is using a range of tools -- model building, computation, and neutron stars -- to get at the basic question of “what is the statistical mechanics of dark matter?” She will show that the details of ultralight axion models can shift the astrophysical phenomenology and also that neutron stars are potentially interesting dark matter constraint laboratories. From the optical to the X-ray and gamma-ray universe, astrophysics has a role to play in understanding the details of this major problem in particle physics.

Book Discussion | A Splendid Intelligence: The Life of Elizabeth Hardwick


Born in Kentucky, Elizabeth Hardwick left for New York City on a Greyhound bus in 1939 and quickly made a name for herself as a formidable member of the intellectual elite. Her eventful life included stretches of dire poverty, romantic escapades, and dustups with authors she eviscerated in The New York Review of Books, of which she was a cofounder. She formed lasting friendships with literary notables―including Mary McCarthy, Adrienne Rich, and Susan Sontag―who appreciated her sharp wit and relish for gossip, progressive politics, and great literature. Author Cathy Curtis finally gives Hardwick her due as one of the great postwar cultural critics. Ranging over a broad territory―from the depiction of women in classic novels to the civil rights movement, from theater in New York to life in Brazil, Kentucky, and Maine―Hardwick’s essays remain strikingly original, fiercely opinionated, and exquisitely wrought. In this lively and illuminating biography, Cathy Curtis offers an intimate portrait of an exceptional woman who vigorously forged her own identity on and off the page.

Author Reading | Architecture Unbound: A Century of the Disruptive Avant-Garde (online)


Noted architecture critic Joseph Giovannini traces our current architecture landscape to the disruptive scientific advances and transgressive and progressive art movements that roiled Europe before and after World War I, and then to the social unrest and cultural disruptions of the 1960s. Cumulative shifts across disciplines and social systems established fertile new ground for the rise of an inventive, antiauthoritarian architecture that, in the 1970s, challenged the status quo. Built manifestoes in the 1980s led to digital inventions of the 1990s, and after the turn of the millennium to climax structures that now populate world capitals competing for cultural stature on the international stage.

Author Reading | DIY on the Lower East Side: Books, Buildings, and Art after the 1975 Fiscal Crisis (online)


Author Andrew Strombeck in conversation with the Tenement Museum’s Arabella Luna Friedland about his new book. In the throes of the 1975 New York fiscal crisis, New York City was crumbling. Deemed as the subsequent failure of the “postwar welfare state”, the seemingly abandoned city sparked fear. Plainclothes police officers greeted tourists at the airports with “Fear City” pamphlets, a “survival guide” that warned mainly to stay away. A city and time filled with contradiction also allotted for one of the most creative and community driven periods in New York City history. Strombeck tells the legacy of one neighborhood in particular, the Lower East Side, where the crisis and its cultural aftermath centralized gentrification in a neighborhood that was originally working class, reworking the foundation of the arts and activism in crisis in a way inherent to New York City.

Author Reading | The People's Constitution (Online)


In The People's Constitution, Wilfred Codrington and John Kowal, present an alternative history to our founding document and a vital guide to our national charter. They introduce all of the constitution's framers: not just the Framers but "the visionaries and gadflies whose passion and perseverance helped ensure that our national charter could change with the times through periodic infusions of popular input." That history, they argue, "has been, for the most part, an inspiring story of progressive legal change, driven by powerful social movements and an evolving array of civil society organizations." But in our fractured, hyper-partisan politics of today, are we still able to amend the Constitution? Codrington and Kowal try to answer this question and discuss their book with NYU law professor Melissa Murray.

Author Reading | Open: An Uncensored Memoir of Love, Liberation, and Non-Monogamy (online)


Can we have both freedom and love? Comfort and lust? Is a relationship ever equal? And is the pleasure worth the pain? When author Rachel Krantz met and fell for Adam, he told her that he was looking for a committed partnership—just one that did not include exclusivity. In her nonfiction debut, Krantz explores these questions with an unflinching eye and page-turning storytelling, tracing her search to understand what non-monogamy would do to her heart, her mind, and her life through interviews with scientists, psychologists, and people living and loving outside the mainstream.
