Book Discussion | Speculative Communities: Living with Uncertainty in a Financialized World by Aris Komporozos-Athanasiou (online)


A roundtable on the new book that examines the ways that speculation has moved beyond financial markets to shape fundamental aspects of our social and political lives. As ordinary people make exceptional decisions, such as the American election of a populist demagogue or the British vote to leave the European Union, they are moving from time-honored and tested practices of governance, toward the speculative promise of a new, more uncertain future. This book shows how even our methods of community building have shifted to the speculative realm as social media platforms enable and amplify our volatile wagers. Speakers will include Arjun Appadurai (New York University), Melinda Cooper (Australian National University), and Jamieson Webster (psychoanalyst), with moderation by Julia Ott (The New School).

Lecture | Sons of Moral Enlightenment: The Decembrist Generation and Russian Emotional Culture (online)


A very common assertion in scholarship, and one suggested by the Decembrists’ reminiscences, is that the “romantic rebels” were “the children of 1812.” That being true, the Decembrists were first and foremost sons of the Enlightenment. In a literal sense, they were the sons of their fathers, who represented the generation of the Age of Reason in its Russian variant. While the intellectual impact of “Decembrist fathers” on their rebellious sons has not been properly studied, a closer look uncovers that Decembrists imbibed their parents’ values through their family upbringing. This process also occurred through public education and public letters. It is no accident that some Decembrist fathers were also educators and men of letters, such as M. N. Muravev, I. M. Muravev-Apostol, and A. F. Bestuzhev. The Decembrists’ intellectual debt to the Enlightenment’s political ideas has been established by scholars. Yet, the future rebels also acquired the norms of noble “emotional culture” which were based on a Russian variant of the Scottish philosophy of “moral sentiments” and exemplified in works of the Decembrist fathers’ generation. We tend to think of these revolutionaries as parting ways with their fathers’ traditions and values, yet the Decembrists were immersed in their fathers’ emotional culture of moral “noble feelings,” which also carried a latent political charge.

Lecture | Religion, Contagion and Plague in the Pre-Modern Islamicate World (online)


Covid-19 has shone a harsh light on the fault lines of the countries of the twenty first century, on the inequalities within our societies, but also on how our attitudes to science and to religion shape our sense of responsibility to our neighbors. In this talk, Justin Stearns look back over the intellectual responses to epidemic disease in the Muslim world in the premodern period, addressing attitudes towards contagion, God’s omnipotence, medicine, and the believer’s duty to fellow Muslims. My aim is not to draw lessons with our own current predicament as to deepen our understanding of how prior generations of mankind responded to a challenge we are all-too familiar with today.” Justin Stearns is an associate professor of Arab Crossroads Studies at New York University in Abu Dhabi.

Author Reading | Takedown: Art and Power in the Digital Age


Author Farah Nayeri grapples with the most difficult questions of power, money, and identity facing the art world today. For centuries, art censorship has been a top-down phenomenon--kings, popes, and one-party states decided what was considered obscene, blasphemous, or politically deviant in art. Today, censorship can also happen from the bottom-up, thanks to calls to action from organizers and social media campaigns. Artists and artworks are routinely taken to task for their insensitivity. In this new world order, artists, critics, philanthropists, galleries and museums alike are recalibrating their efforts to increase the visibility of marginalized voices and respond to the people’s demands for better ethics in art. But what should we, the people, do with this newfound power?

Discussion | A Breathtaking Challenge: Charting the Course for Cleaner Air (online)


It’s among the top five of health dangers, and it’s everywhere. Air pollution. According to global health experts, poor air quality causes premature mortality in up to nine million people every year. One third of deaths from stroke, lung cancer, and heart disease are caused by microscopic pollutants in the air that can infiltrate our respiratory and circulatory system, damaging our lungs, heart, and brain. Two of the school’s world-renowned atmospheric scientists discuss an exciting interdisciplinary project aimed to better understand this threat and help move global policies to clear the air and protect public health.

Lecture | Science and Fascism, or Fascist Science? (online)


While historians of Germany have made Nazi science an essential aspect of Hitler's regime, Italian historians have always written about science and Fascism as two separate entities. This perspective confirms the assumption that good science, as a pure intellectual enterprise, can exist and function properly only in liberal-democratic regimes. Did science work differently under Fascism? In short, was there a "Fascist science"? Speaker: Angelo Caglioti, Assistant Professor of History at Barnard College

Author Reading | Worn: A People's History of Clothing (online)


In Sofi Thanhauser’s dazzling social history of clothing, she brilliantly tells five stories —Linen, Cotton, Silk, Synthetics, Wool—about the clothes we wear and where they come from, illuminating our world in unexpected ways. She exposes how the clothing industry has become one of the planet's worst polluters, and how it relies on chronically underpaid and exploited laborers. But she also shows us how micro-communities, textile companies, and clothing makers in every corner of the world are rediscovering ancestral and ethical methods for making what we wear.

Talk | The Aquatic Mammals of New York City (online)


New York City is an ideal habitat for countless species. However, centuries of pollution had driven most of these animals away. In the last 50 years, though, thanks to cleaner conditions and stricter environmental regulations, many species have returned, including several mammals who call the water home. This talk will discuss the return of beavers, humpback whales, harbor seals, and dolphins to New York City. Speaker Thomas Hynes is the author of Wild City: A Brief History of New York in 40 Animals.

Discussion | Managing Cyber Risk: The Clear and Present Danger (online)


Ensuring the cyber security resilience of the United States is truly a whole-of-society effort. The importance of cyber security for our nation's national security, economic security, and competitiveness is fortunately well understood and documented at this juncture. However, in response to the dramatic changes in the threat landscape, a welcomed and necessary shift has been the increased emphasis on cyber security as a strategic, enterprise-wide risk by senior leaders in organizations, going beyond the realm of I.T. functions. This panel will discuss cyber security as an enterprise-wide risk issue requiring more than just an I.T. perspective. The panel will outline the impact of cyber risk on an organization, mitigate the risk, and review the critical components of a cyber risk program.
