Tour | Williamsburg Street Art Tour


Street art is visual art created in public locations, usually unsanctioned artwork executed outside of the context of traditional art venues. The term gained popularity during the graffiti art boom of the early 1980s and continues to be applied to subsequent incarnations. Stencil graffiti, wheat pasted poster art or sticker art, and street installation or sculpture are common forms of modern street art.

Discussion | Turkey and Thailand: Unlikely Twins Revisited


In 2012, Duncan McCargo (Columbia) and Ayse Zarakol (Cambridge) published an article in the Journal of Democracy entitled “Turkey and Thailand: Unlikely Twins.” The article highlighted striking similarities in the history and politics of two nations at opposite ends of ‘Asia’ (broadly imagined), and raised critical questions about issues such urban-rural divides, national myths, the role of the military, and trends towards authoritarianism. Since then, much has happened to confirm and to qualify their arguments: Thailand experienced a military coup in May 2014, while there was an unsuccessful coup attempt in Turkey two years later. In this seminar, the two authors will revisit their analysis and debate the significance of subsequent developments for understanding this apparent parallelism.

Lecture | The Desacralization of Revolution and Anti-Revolution Consensus: The 2017 Anniversary and Its Political Use/Non-Use


In Russia the year of the centenary of the Revolution passed without any outstanding public events that would have engaged the citizens of Russia. Although academic institutions, museum and art communities paid a lot of attention to the year 1917, no books, public ceremonies, exhibitions or films have evoked significant public debate about the century-old events. Various observers from differing positions, both in Russia and abroad, observed that state policy seemed to favor that the centenary be passed over in silence. This policy of deliberate neglect has often been attributed to a fear of a “revolution export/import” on the part of Russian leaders. Boris Kolonitsky’s presentation will investigate the various resources that influence the memory politics of the primary political actors. He is especially interested in trends of Russian public opinion.

Classical Music | Les Trois Ãges: The Dowry of a French-Cypriot Princess


In 1434, Anne, the daughter of King Janus of Cyprus and Charlotte of Bourbon, married Louis, Duke of Savoy. Within her dowry was a large and remarkable manuscript containing more than 200 unique and anonymous works. It remains the only surviving witness to the rich tapestry of music heard in the court of Nicosia, exhibiting a fusion of native Cypriot musical traditions with the rhythmically complex French Ars Subtilior. Les Trois Âges came into being out of the shared passions of three generations of early musicians. Drawing on their extensive collective performing and scholarly experience, Judith Malafronte, mezzo-soprano, Christopher Preston-Thompson, tenor and harp, Rachel Begley, historical winds, and their guests unite for adventurous and virtuosic programs of music from the late Middle Ages and Renaissance. Judith Malafronte, mezzo-soprano Christopher Preston-Thompson, tenor and harp Rachel Begley, historical winds with guests: Dong-Myung Ahn, rebec Patrick Fennig, counter-tenor

Tour | Midtown Manhattan Tour


Arguably the world's most valuable, busiest and most crowded pieces of real estate, Midtown Manhattan is what most visitors think of when they think of New York City. Home to some of the city's most iconic architecture, from Gothic to Post-Modern and from Beaux-Arts to Art Deco (lots of Art Deco). it's not difficult to understand why. But just behind the massive facades, lie facinating histories just waiting to be unveiled.

Discussion | Energy, Economics, and Geopolitics in the Gulf Arab States


Global energy markets are experiencing a period of dramatic change. Markets have experienced several years of abrupt price drops and recoveries. New producers and new technologies are exerting price pressure in oil and gas markets. Some are even debating the future of demand for oil, the most ubiquitous fuel. Even in this time of change, however, no region remains more important for the global energy scene than the Middle East, and the influence of the Gulf Arab States remains extremely high. In order to understand current trends in energy markets, and their implications for economies and geopolitical relations of the Gulf states, the Center on Global Energy Policy will host a discussion with an outstanding panel of leading decision-makers and analysts: • Dr. Matar Al Neyadi, Under Secretary, UAE Ministry of Energy • Dr. Adnan Shihab-Eldin, Director General, Kuwait Foundation for the Advancement of Science • Dr. Helima Croft, Managing Director and Global Head of Commodity Strategy, RBC Capital Markets • Dr. Bernard Haykel, Professor of Near Eastern Studies & Director, Institute for Transregional Study of the Contemporary Middle East, Princeton University • Nabil Al-Khowaiter, Senior Advisor, Ministry of Energy

Lecture | Public Opinion on Policy and Budgetary Trade-offs in European Welfare States


In the wake of the “Great Recession,” welfare states have entered a new phase of austerity. At the same time, new social risks and the rise of the knowledge economy fuel new demands on the welfare state. We analyze how demands for social investment policies – in particular education – come into conflict with budgetary concerns, using new survey data on individual-level preferences in eight European countries. Lecturer Marius R. Busemeyer is a Full Professor of Political Science at the University of Konstanz, Germany.

Lecture | More than Fair: How Excessive Sympathy for Him ('Himpathy') Obscures and Causes Misogyny


Misogyny is, roughly, the “law enforcement” branch of patriarchy, which serves to police, enforce, or restore patriarchal social order—often by visiting hostility on girls and women for perceived violations of gendered norms and expectations. As well as complementary ideologies (most notably, sexism), there is also the flipside of misogyny which deserves to be considered: the exonerating narratives and excessive sympathy of which comparatively privileged men tend to be the beneficiaries. Speaker Kate Manne of Cornell University calls the latter ‘himpathy.’

Lecture | Rhetoric and Evidence in a Polarized Society


Mario Small (Harvard) will discuss America’s controversies about the nature of poverty, inequality, and economic opportunity. He argues that the public discourse about these problems is undermined by an inability to communicate evidence about their causes and potential solutions. Some of this evidence is statistical, but much of it stems from qualitative studies about the lives and communities of the disadvantaged.

Film | Terese Capucilli's Lawrence 'Reed' Hansen: The Sacrosanct Accompanist: A Musical Journey Through Martha Graham's Dance Technique


Pianist 'Reed' Hansen has been accompanying classes of Martha Graham's technique at The Juilliard School since 1958 and has had an enduring relationship from the early '70's with the Martha Graham School and the Martha Graham Dance Company. Martha Graham chose Hansen as her personal accompanist and considered him "sacrosanct." This beautiful documentary offers a pristine journey through sound and movement, giving overdue credence to the essential contribution that accompanists make to the dance world.

Opening Reception | Pauli Murray: Exhibit on the First African-American Woman to Be Ordained an Episcopal Priest


Throughout her life, Pauli Murray (1910-1985) was a leading human rights activist, historian, attorney, poet, and teacher. The great-granddaughter of slaves and slave owners, Pauli Murray became an advisor to presidents Roosevelt and Kennedy and a lifelong friend of Eleanor Roosevelt. Fifteen years before Rosa Parks refused to stand, Murray refused to sit in the back of a bus, and 20 years before the Greensboro sit-ins, she organized restaurant sit-downs in Washington, D.C., while a law student at Howard University.  She was the first African-American awarded a doctorate of law from Yale University (who recently named a college for her), and a co-founder of the National Organization for Women (NOW). In 2012, she was named an Episcopal saint.

Opening Reception | She Could Have Been A Cowboy: Photographs by Anja Niemi


The first US solo exhibition of Norwegian photographer Anja Niemi. In her latest series, Niemi continues her investigations of the self. This time she turns the lens to a life lived under the constraints of conformity. Every day her fictional character finds herself trapped in the same pink dress, but what she really wants is to be a cowboy, dressed in fringe and leather, riding horses in the Wild West. Through this series of photographs with multiple layers and possible interpretations, Niemi delivers her most political work to date.

Opening Reception | About Face: Group Show of Portraits


The six artists featured in this show make images that record the likeness of an individual. At the same time, they transform this process into a springboard for creative invention. Using expressive brushwork, distorted form, vivid color, and other experimental techniques, these artists insist that portraiture is a subjective endeavor. Some, like Bryan Michael Greene, capture personal responses to close friends and intimates. Others, like Martin Cohen, Marina Marchand, and Gary Peabody, evoke the various ways we project our desires and dreams onto pop culture icons.

This talk examines the official designation of Shenzhen as China's first city without villages.

Speaker Mary Ann O’Donnell has sought alternative ways of inhabiting Shenzhen, the flagship of China’s post Mao economic reforms. O'Donnell creates and contributes to projects that reconfigure and repurpose shared spaces, where our worlds mingle and collide, sometimes collapse, and often implode.

Play | Tar Sands Songbook: Workshop Performance and Panel Discussion


An illuminating work of documentary theater, Tar Sands Songbook asks us to reconsider our relationship with oil. Creator Tanya Kalmanovitch knows this relationship all too well: She was born in Fort McMurray, Canada, near the site of the Athabasca Oil Sands, the world’s largest bitumen reservoir. Fort McMurray has since become a flashpoint of international clashes over energy, the environment, and the economy. Written and directed with Cecilia Rubino, Kalmanovitch’s polyphonic piece weaves together a chorus of actors’ voices with an original, improvised score. The words of indigenous activists, engineers, heavy equipment operators, elders, oil patch workers, scientists, and members of her own family fuel discussions of our past and the powerful forces that shape our future. Actors Jennifer van Dyck and Peter Jay Fernandez, musician Tanya Kalmanovitch, and media designer Stephen Byram bring this work to life.

Author Reading | Todd Miller reads from his book Storming the Wall


As global warming accelerates, droughts last longer, floods rise higher, and super-storms become more frequent. With increasing numbers of people on the move as a result, the business of containing them––border fortification––is booming. Todd Miller travels around the world to connect the dots between climate-ravaged communities, the corporations cashing in on border militarization, and emerging movements for environmental justice and sustainability.

Film | Christian Schwochow's NSU: The Perpetrators (2015): German Drama


In 1990, Jena’s economy is the worst it’s been since World War II. Many young people in East Germany drift from school into unemployment, witness their parents’ insecurity, and feel the impotence of the police and state. They feel disoriented, unloved, and aggrieved, and begin to consider themselves second-class citizens failed by the state. One of them is Beate Zschäpe, who falls under the spell of right-wing extremists. 95 min.   In German with English subtitles.

Author Reading | Claudio Sopranzetti discusses his book Owners of the Map: Motorcycle Taxi Drivers, Mobility, and Politics in Bangkok


Owners of the Map, a study of Bangkok through an ethnographic study of motorcycle taxi drivers, advances an analysis of space and power that is of interest to both social research and design. In 2010, thousands of Red Shirts protesters took over the commercial center of Bangkok to demand democratic elections and an end to inequality. Key to this mobilization were motorcycle taxi drivers, who slowed down, filtered, and severed mobility in the area, claiming a prominent role in national politics and ownership over the city and challenging state hegemony.
