Harlem's history is also one of the city's most dramatic, having gone through many ethnic, cultural and socioeconomic changes over the past roughly 400 years, which have resulted in a diverse array of places of worship, theaters, homes and eating establishments.

Greenwich Village is among Manhattan's most desirable and expensive residential neighborhoods. It's history, however, betrays it's monied status. The Village, with it's quiet, shaded streets, lined with lovely brick and brownstone townhouses, was once the incubating ground of artistic, social and political movements that have helped shape US history. From the Beats to the Folk Movement, from workers rights to gay rights, the Village has often been the center of it all.

Lecture |
How does cooperation emerge in complex, diverse societies? Or rather, how do residents of diverse communities work together, despite the obstacles posed by racial/ethnic differences between them? To tackle these questions, Maria Abascal examines collective action across New York City neighborhoods that vary in terms of racial/ethnic and immigrant composition, socioeconomic resources, and residential stability. Maria Abascal is an assistant professor of sociology at Columbia University.

In this lecture, honoring the advancement of women in science, Karen Barad investigates how the keys to quantum theory, namely the indeterminacy of time-being, can be used to unlock our understanding of social phenomena, such as colonialism, capitalism, militarism, racism, nationalism, and environmental destruction. How are such scourges of society entangled with nuclear and particle physics research? Barad takes up quantum physics’ immanent deconstructive dynamics, considers ways in which quantum physics troubles modernist conceptions of time, and asks whether quantum temporalities might offer radical new ways for cohabiting our planet more justly. Karen Barad is professor of feminist studies, philosophy, and history of consciousness at the University of California, Santa Cruz.

In most post-conflict countries nongovernmental organizations are everywhere, but their presence is misunderstood. In The NGO Game, Patrice McMahon investigates the unintended outcomes of what she calls the NGO boom in Bosnia and Kosovo. Using her years of fieldwork and interviews, McMahon argues that when international actors try to rebuild and reconstruct post-conflict countries, they often rely on and look to NGOs.

Lecture |
Mischa Kuball’s “public preposition” is a group of works, interventions, projects, and performances made over a period of several decades. What they have in common is that they appeal to a public sphere and implicitly question in what locations and under what circumstances what we mean by “public” is constituted and how it should be understood. Many of these interventions and projects were temporary in nature and only exist in photo documentation form. Mischa Kuball has been working in the public and institutional sphere since 1977. He uses light as a medium to explore architectural spaces as well as social and political discourses and reflects on a whole variety of aspects from sociocultural structures to architectural interventions as well as emphasizing or reinterpreting their monumental nature and context in architectural history. Public and private space merge into an indistinguishable whole in politically motivated participation projects, providing a platform for communication between the audience, the artist, the work itself and public space.
