Tour | Tour of Gracie Mansion, Home of New York's Mayors


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.

Author Reading | Varun Sivaram discusses his book Taming the Sun: Innovations to Harness Solar Energy and Save the Planet


Solar energy, once a niche application for a limited market, has become the cheapest and fastest-growing power source on earth. What’s more, its potential is nearly limitless—every hour the sun beams down more energy than the world uses in a year. Dr. Varun Sivaram warns that the world is not yet equipped to harness erratic sunshine to meet most of its energy needs. And if solar’s current surge peters out, prospects for replacing fossil fuels and averting catastrophic climate change will dim.

Lecture | Sociability and Values: A Perspective on Muslim Arab Families in São Paulo, Brazil


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.

Lecture | Is Free Movement a Human or a Citizenship Right?


Political theorists have debated for some time whether there is a human right to free movement across international borders. In this lecture, Rainer Bauböck, one of the world's leading theorists of transnational citizenship, distinguishes the ethics of refugee admission, economic immigration, and free movement, and argues that the latter is more usefully understood as a right that states ought to grant to each other’s citizens. Professor Bauböck holds the chair in social and political theory at the Department of Political and Social Sciences of the European University Institute.
