Collective impact is a new term for an old concept: non-profit organizations working together to do what none of them can do individually. In the words of an influential article on the subject in the Stanford Social Innovation Review, “Large-scale social change requires broad cross-sector coordination, yet the social sector remains focused on the isolated intervention of individual organizations.” Alex Counts will be speaking about a tangible example of the idea of collective impact in action, in his capacity as a co-founder and co-chair of the Microfinance CEO Working Group, recently renamed the Partnership for Responsible Financial Inclusion. He will also speak about his more recent work bringing this approach to organizations focused on social change and poverty alleviation in India.

Starting as a modest self-published recipe-collection during the Great Depression, Joy of Cooking rose to become not just a celebrated American cookbook, but arguably the American cookbook. Home cooks throughout the United States came to feel an affectionate bond with the women behind the book, Irma Rombauer and her daughter, Marion Rombauer Becker. Successive editions over more than eighty-five years tell a story of continuities and changes in American kitchens — who’s done the cooking, what’s come into or gone out of fashion, what people want from the acts of cooking and eating. Join a panel of culinary historians and cookbook authors as they share insights about this iconic culinary document and its begetters, within the larger context of American cuisine. Moderator:  Nach Waxman, Kitchen Arts and Letters, Inc.

The essential backdrop of the history of the region we now call Latin America is the centuries-long process of negotiation between the different social, religious, cultural and political registers of the Indigenous, African and European peoples who came to inhabit the area. The resulting American scientific and technological convergence involved the combination and recombination of practices whose exact origins are difficult to trace. Speaker: María M.

Clay tablets from ancient Iraq continue to reveal surprising new insights about Babylonian astronomical and astrological practices during the first millennium BCE. Ever since the first astronomical tablets from Iraq reached the British Museum and other collections at the end of the nineteenth century, Babylonian astral science has attracted the attention of modern specialists. By now, research on this topic has reached a stage where the technical aspects of Babylonian astronomy are relatively well understood, but even here surprises are still possible. The focus of much other research has shifted to various contextual aspects of the Babylonian astral sciences. Speaker Mathieu Ossendrijver is Professor for the History of Ancient Science in the Department of Philosophy at the Humboldt University Berlin.

Empathy has become a gaping fault line in American culture. Pioneering programs aim to infuse our legal and educational systems with more empathic thinking, even as pundits argue over whether we should bother empathizing with our political opposites at all. Meanwhile, we are inundated with the buzzily termed “empathic marketing”—which may very well be a contradiction in terms.

Program: W. F. Bach - Sonata in Canon no.1 (c 1720) Stefano Gervasoni - Folia for violin (2011-2012) Bach/Gervasoni - Two-Part Inventions (1723/2009) Gervasoni - Ravine for flute (2000) Gervasoni - Due Voci for flute and violin (1991) Roy Amotz, flute Elissa Cassini, violin From J. S. Bach to Stefano Gervasoni, this bold juxtaposition of historical extremes offers an innovative exploration of the similarities and contrasts between two treble instruments. Central to the program are Gervasoni’s colorful and imaginative transcriptions of Bach’s Inventions. Both keyboard lines are re-written, using both the violin and the viola in combination with all the flutes, including piccolo and bass flute. From wood to wind or bow to breath, this fertile opposition urges the performers to expand their expressive ranges, seeking a new unity of sound both complex and beautiful. The re-invention of instrumental roles and the reconsideration of the very notions of tradition and innovation leave the listener with the understanding of music’s inherent ability to re-invent itself.

If there’s one thing that unites all New Yorkers it’s a hatred of all things New York. Let’s face it, those who don’t live here are not likely to commiserate with us. The rent is too damn high to deal with train shutdowns, lost tourists, and shitty roommates. Not to mention—actual shit. You’ll never know what you’ll see on the sidewalks, and there are some things that just cannot be unseen. Yet, the longer we live here, the easier it gets and we learn to roll with all the punches this city throws our way. So, in the spirit of learning to live with some sense of dignity, I Live Here Now brings together your favorite city-dwelling comedians you’ve seen on Conan, The Late Show, and Comedy Central to explore why misery loves company—as they come together to share their experiences living in New York City. Because, whether you believe it or not, we’ve all come to adjust to this love-hate relationship we have with this nasty city. And, deep inside we know we cannot see a future anywhere else. Especially LA. Featuring NYC's funniest comedians: Emmy Blotnick (The President Show, Comedy Central Half Hour Special) Myq Kaplan (The Late Show with David Letterman, Comedy Central, Last Comic Standing, Conan) Alison Leiby (The President Show, UCB, Bridgetown Comedy) Mike Recine (Conan, Just For Laughs) Hosted by Lillian DeVane (Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival, LAUGHS, Nerdist)
