Book Club | Bartleby the Scrivener by Herman Melville


Bartleby is a kind of clerk, a copyist, "who obstinately refuses to go on doing the sort of writing demanded of him." During the spring of 1851, Melville felt similarly about his work on Moby Dick. Thus, Bartleby can be seen to represent Melville's frustration with his own situation as a writer, and the story itself is "about a writer who forsakes conventional modes because of an irresistible preoccupation with the most baffling philosophical questions." Bartleby can also be seen to represent Melville's relation to his commercial, democratic society.

Lecture | Leo Rosten and the Translation of Yiddish Joy (online)


This lecture examines a book in Yiddish studies that is frequently mentioned but little read: The Joys of Yiddish by Leo Rosten. Published in 1968, the work went on to become a bestseller. It remains in print to this day and has been translated into French, German, and Czech. The goal of this talk will be to analyze the construction and reception of the volume. To do so, Prof. Yudkoff will draw on archival sources, including fan mail, correspondence with YIVO researchers, and early drafts of the popular lexicon. These will be read together with book reviews published in both English and Yiddish, by authors as varied as anthropologist Margaret Mead and Yiddish researcher Mortkhe Kosover, the first director of the YIVO Library in New York. This talk will further bring Rosten’s volume into conversation with the work of contemporary affect theorists as well as cultural historians of postwar Jewish reading practices. Throughout, the guiding question will be: What vision of the Yiddish joy did Rosten project? Speaker Sunny Yudkoff joined the Department of German, Nordic, and Slavic, as well as the Mosse/Weinstein Center for Jewish Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, in the fall of 2016.

Book Discussion | Do Something: Coming of Age Amid the Glitter and Doom of '70s


Legendary style writer Guy Trebay launches his memoir, the education of a wayward wild child and acidhead who found refuge in the demimonde of the ruined but magical metropolis that was New York.   Born in the Bronx, Guy Trebay was raised in an atmosphere of privilege on Long Island’s North Shore after his entrepreneurial father struck business gold with Hawaiian Surf, a wildly successful cologne company that capitalized on the optimism of the 1960s as marketed to “an adventurous new breed of men.’’ But behind the facade of material prosperity lay the emotional disarray of a household dominated by a charismatic, con artist father, a glamorous yet lost and careless mother, a family haunted by tragedy. By the time Trebay established a foothold at the fringes of Andy Warhol’s Factory and the diverse artistic tribes that thrived in Manhattan in that pre-digital era, his father had lost his fortune, his younger sister had been arrested for armed robbery and fled underground, the family house was in ashes, and his mother was dead. Unschooled and on his own, Trebay became a striver, wending his way through a seemingly apocalyptic landscape populated by a vibrant cast of characters, including washed-up Hollywood screenwriters of the ’30s; Warhol superstars like Jackie Curtis and Candy Darling; fashion geniuses like Charles James; and emerging artists, filmmakers, writers, designers, photographers, and deejays who would powerfully influence mainstream culture in the decades to come.

Book Club | Moonflower Murders by Anthony Horowitz


Retired publisher Susan Ryeland is living the good life. She is running a small hotel on a Greek island with her long-term boyfriend Andreas. It should be everything she’s always wanted. But is it? She’s exhausted with the responsibilities of making everything work on an island where nothing ever does, and truth be told she’s beginning to miss London. And then the Trehernes come to stay. The strange and mysterious story they tell, about an unfortunate murder that took place on the same day and in the same hotel in which their daughter was married—a picturesque inn on the Suffolk coast named Branlow Hall—fascinates Susan and piques her editor’s instincts.

Book Discussion | The Fall of Roe: The Rise of a New America


With stunning scope, journalistic rigor, and unprecedented access to the highest echelons of conservative and liberal power, Dias and Lerer chronicle the end of the Roe era. Their deeply human reporting stretches from inside abortion clinics to the halls of the White House, exposing powerful behind-the-scenes actors and recasting the actions of those already in the spotlight. The result is a sweeping and intimate narrative of secrets, power, jaw-dropping revelations, and a beacon to guide us forward. Elizabeth Dias is the national religion correspondent for The New York Times and has reported on religion and politics for 15 years. She covers the shifting expressions of belief and power in American society, and the values, emotions and people that shape public life. She has reported from more than 30 states and written about religion in four presidential elections.

Discussion | Upfront Carbon: The Now Narrative


A decade ago, concerns about energy consumption in the building sector focused on operational carbon - particularly, emissions associated with heating and cooling. Today, though, the discussion has shifted in part to embodied carbon, which can also be called "upfront carbon," because it is carbon released into the atmosphere before the building even opens its doors. Embodied carbon measures the first-stage "carbon cost" of producing energy-intensive materials such as concrete and steel, of transporting them to the site, and of other processes that require burning fossil fuels used to construct a building. Embodied carbon has become an increasingly important concern of scientists, engineers, and architects. Driven by the urgency of global warming and a growing understanding of the significant role new construction plays in climate change, designers are becoming more conscious of the carbon cost of the materials they choose. For many, engineered wood - considered in the full picture of responsibly managed forests and whole life-cycle analysis - offers at least a partial answer. While the concept of embodied carbon is still not widely understood by the public, it has a history in the architectural community that our program will explore. Longtime thought leaders David Lewis and Alan Organschi will discuss the role of research in both academic and professional practice in advancing ideas about low-embodied carbon materials, such as Mass Timber. After their presentations, they'll engage in conversation with writer and architecture critic Fred A. Bernstein.

Talk | Before Juneteenth: Emancipation Celebrations in the Tenements (online)


Before the Emancipation Proclamation, before Juneteenth, Black New Yorkers celebrated July 5th as Emancipation Day after the abolition of slavery in the state in 1827. This is a special conversation exploring the history and significance of July 5th in New York in the 19th century. Marquis Taylor, Lead Researcher of our newest exhibit, A Union of Hope: 1869, will share primary sources and research on the lead-up and eventual passage of emancipation laws in New York state. How would people like Joseph and Rachel Moore have celebrated on July 5th? What did celebration look like when people were still enslaved even in neighboring New Jersey? How did Black communities use this day to push forward new ideas about freedom and what it meant to be American?

Concert | Music for the Garden: A Musical Intervention


JJJJJerome Ellis describes themselves as a “Jamaican-Grenadian-American, disabled animal, stutterer, and artist” who speaks with a glottal block stutter, an involuntary speech dysfluency that manifests in pauses while talking. The artist explores relationships between Blackness, disabled speech, divinity, plant life, sound, and time. Their practice spans various formats, including soundscapes composed of saxophone, dulcimer, electronics, and vocals; spoken and written word; and theatrical performances. Music for the Garden includes a combination of live saxophone and electronic sound. Ellis views this as a musical intervention for both the people and the plants on the High Line. The artist worked with the park horticulture team to learn about the various plants growing by the Lawn, and incorporated this research into their musical performance—as JJJJJerome paces around the garden with their saxophone, they name and discuss the various species. In this vein, Music for the Garden is as much about creating music for the site and the human audience, as it is creating music for the flower and plant audience.

Book Discussion | Even the birds gave pause by Former R.E.M. Frontman Michael Stipe (In Person AND Online!)


The artist and former R.E.M. frontman discusses his new book of photography, an exploration of contemporary portraiture. Michael Stipe recently published his fourth book of photography, Even the birds gave pause, which, he says, sets out “to explore what the portrait means in this century.” It features a series of works-in-progress in plaster, concrete, rotocast plastics, ceramics, bookmaking, and darkroom photographic printing. “We are constantly bombarded with documentation and imagery through digital technology and social media culture,” Stipe said. “Media has collapsed into exploitation and sensation, entertainment, and with that a confusion about image. So, what is the job of the portraitist or photographer in this moment?”

Discussion | Conversation on a New York Filmmaker


Widely regarded as a master of cinema with extensive technical knowledge and a skill for getting first-rate performances from his actors, Sidney Lumet shot most of his films in his native New York.

Together they will explore his canon of work, tracing his connections to New York from theater to television and film, as well as his career-long focus on the working class and social injustices.

Screening | The Movement Program: Choreography in Video


An evening highlighting the use of choreographic strategies in video art. While choreography as a method of sequencing movement for storytelling or affect is typically invoked in relation to dance, the application here broadens to consider a wide range of video art strategies, including the site gag, televisual editing techniques, and the associative organization of text and image. The program includes works by Burt Barr, Harry Dodge & Stanya Kahn, Alex Hubbard, Cynthia Maughan, Alix Pearlstein, Jacolby Satterwhite, and Stuart Sherman—a vibrant group of artists whose practices encompass dance, performance, sculpture, and digital animation. Using their video cameras and editing techniques, the artists in this screening determine the structure of their work on the recording apparatus itself, complicating the conventions of straightforward performance documentation. Viewed together, the works in this program represent the choreography of movement, character, and the framed scene as facilitated by video and digital technology, compiling the gestures of everyday life into a catalogue of kinetic experimentation.

Discussion | Dreaming Big: Thinking Into the Future and Envisioning New Possibilities


How can different disciplines engage, re-think and explore cross-disciplinary collaboration? What are the questions? What are the fears? How do we stay connected and human in the abundance of technology creating rapid moving landscapes, new realities, and global impacts? What can we dream? Faculty from The New School working in architecture, creative performance, design and psychology gather for a dynamic conversation centered in Afro-Futurism, technology, and storytelling. The program will open with a performance on Fiddle Henge, a robotically controlled array of four violins mounted on a 24” bass drum that is played by a motorized acrylic disk; and The Illustrious Blacks will provide a closing set to engage our bodies, spirits, and minds. Program curated by Gayle Fekete with New School faculty Pani Favid, Julia Foulkes, Maya Georgieva, Jeongki Lim, Katie Swenson,and Ross Wightman.
