It is here, as much as anywhere, where American history started. It's where the first US Congress assembled and produced the Bill of Rights and where President George Washington took his first oath of office. It's here where the world's most important stock exchange and one of the most famous bridges stand. And it is here where an unspeakable tragedy took place and where a rebirth is underway.

These were followed by a successful tour of 56 concerts in the USA and Canada and by the launching of his first three CDs, which established his reputation as one the most all-embracing talents in the international guitar scene.

Professor Sai Balakrishnan will be exploring the narrative movements of urbanization in contemporary India from megacities to the contested geographies along new economic corridors. As policymakers search for new market-oriented means for the transfer of land from agrarian constituencies to infrastructural promoters and urban developers, the re-allocation of property control is erupting into volatile land-based social conflicts.

Some jobs have relationships at the core of their work, requiring an emotional connection between the workers and their charges; for example, teachers, therapists, ministers – each rely in their work on a relationship in service to a larger goal: children learning, patients healing, congregants inspired. “Connective labor” is the clinical, relational work between practitioner and recipient, using their emotional connection to produce a particular end in the latter. The profound impact of connective labor, documented in multiple fields, makes its scarcity, uneven distribution or unreliable performance a social problem. Speaker Allison Pugh is Professor of Sociology at the University of Virginia.

New York-based artist Daniel Arsham straddles the line between art, architecture and performance. Architecture is a prevalent subject throughout his work; environments with eroded walls and stairs going nowhere, landscapes where nature overrides structures, and a general sense of playfulness within existing architecture. Arsham makes architecture do things it is not supposed to do, mining everyday experience for opportunities to confuse and confound our expectations of space and form. Simple yet paradoxical gestures dominate his sculptural work: a façade that appears to billow in the wind, a figure wrapped up in the surface of a wall, a contemporary object cast in volcanic ash as if it was found on some future archeological site.

Poetry Reading |
One night after a poetry reading, two poets sat on two bar stools after two glasses of vinho verde and wondered aloud, “What if poetry readings were never boring? What if instead of maybe one exciting / resonant / dynamic poet per reading, the entire line up was full of them? What if bland was banned once and for all?" Thus, PWA was born: a program of poets who read it like they wrote it, full of fire and heart and maybe also wine. Hosted by Morgan Parker and Tommy Pico, the evening features special guests Camonghne Felix, Shauna Barbosa, and Diana Marie Delgado.

In an age of confusion, fear, and loss, Hanif Abdurraqib's is a voice that matters. Whether he's attending a Bruce Springsteen concert the day after visiting Michael Brown's grave, or discussing public displays of affection at a Carly Rae Jepsen show, he writes with a poignancy and magnetism that resonates profoundly. In essays that have been published by The New York Times, MTV, and Pitchfork, among others—along with original, previously unreleased essays—Abdurraqib uses music and culture as a lens through which to view our world, so that we might better understand ourselves, and in so doing proves himself a bellwether for our times.

On June 6, 2015, inmates Richard Matt and David Sweat escaped from Clinton Correctional Facility, New York State’s largest maximum security prison. The media was instantly obsessed with the story: aided by the prison seamstress, who’d smuggled hacksaw blades, chisels, and drill bits inside the facility via a vat of raw hamburger meat, two convicted murderers sliced their way through the brick and steel wall of their cells, meandered through a maze of tunnels, popped out of a manhole, and walked off into the night.

Wherever the Germans went throughout Europe, they set up a governing council to control Jewish life in the ghettos. Leslie Epstein's King of the Jews tells the story of one such Judenrat, led by the notorious, morally ambiguous Doctor Trumpelman. The 12 members of Trumpelman's council revel in their newfound power until they are faced with the impossible task of handing over the names of 100 of their fellow Jews. Unable to choose and unable to disobey, the council members grapple with the unthinkable assignment of sentencing their own people to death.

When Jay Mendelsohn enrolls in the Odyssey seminar his son Daniel teaches at Bard College, the two men begin an emotional and intellectual adventure. This is Jay’s "one last chance" to learn the great literature he'd neglected in his youth—and a final opportunity to more fully understand his son, a writer and classicist. Jay's responses to The Odyssey uncover secrets that allow the son to understand his difficult father at last. Best-selling author Daniel Mendelsohn is a frequent contributor to The New Yorker and The New York Review of Books.

Shouldn’t the settlement reflect damages? And why should the offender get to decide what retribution looks like? Host: Morgan Parker Tonight's panel: Glory Edim Yahdon Israel Darnell L.
