In 1799, a prosperous New York merchant named Archibald Gracie built a country house overlooking a bend in the East River, five miles north of the then-New York City limits. Little did he know that, more than 200 years later, his home would be serving as the official residence of the First Family of New York City - a place where history is made, not merely recorded. As a historic house museum run by the Parks Department, sitting on 11 acres of grounds now known as Carl Schurz Park, Gracie Mansion has served as the home of 10 mayors, beginning first with Mayor Fiorello H. La Guardia in 1942. Today, Gracie Mansion is occupied by the de Blasio family, which has opened its doors in the spirit of the administration's motto: one city, rising together. In keeping with that theme, Mayor de Blasio and First Lady Chirlane McCray have introduced a new art installation, titled “Windows on the City: Looking Out at Gracie’s New York.” Tours take place at 10am, 11am, 2pm, and 3pm.

Why is national integration achieved in some diverse countries, while others are destabilized by political inequality between ethnic groups, contentious politics, or even separatism and ethnic war? Traversing centuries and continents from early nineteenth-century Europe and Asia to Africa from the turn of the twenty-first century to today, Andreas Wimmer delves into the forces that encourage political alliances to stretch across ethnic divides and build national unity.

Lecture |
Through in-depth interviews with mostly Lebanese and Syrian Muslims, this lecture explores family values across generations, socioeconomic strata, and genders. With Christian Arab families as the counterpoint, Professor Truzzi discusses the dilemmas and practices faced by this Muslim minority in Brazil, demonstrating that the group’s ethnicity and religiosity tend to be continuously reshaped as the group grows and reproduces in local society, reacts to the stereotypes attributed to it, and interacts more intensely with this same society through the new generations born in São Paulo. Lecturer Oswaldo Truzzi is the author of several books on immigration and ethnicity in Brazil.
