Discussion | The Future of Rikers and the Inner Sound


Explore how New York City could be transformed by eliminating the jails on Rikers Island and repurposing it for public uses. New York City is pursuing an ambitious plan to shut down the jails on Rikers Island by reducing the number of people incarcerated and shifting to borough-based facilites that are closer to the city’s courthouses. Supporters believe that a smaller system will be more fair and just, and that borough facilities will be safer and more accessible to the courts, visitors, service providers, and attorneys. Opponents express concerns about the scope of the plan and the impact of the proposed borough facilities on their surroundings. But the discussion over Rikers has not focused on the future of the island, which could be repurposed to provide lasting benefits to nearby communities and the entire region. Relocating facilities currently sited in the South Bronx and North Queens to Rikers would eliminate local sources of pollution, open up shorelines for park space, and create space for well-paid green industrial jobs. Panelists: -- Queens Council Member Costa Constantinides -- Bronx Council Member Rafael Salamanca Jr. -- Claire Weisz, WXY Studio

Lecture | They’re Snatching Our Islands Through Environmental Protection: Sovereignty and Biodiversity Conservation on the Diaoyu/Senkaku Islands


After World War II, biologists, ecologists and amateur naturalists began to compile what became known as the Red Data Book - the world's first biodiversity database. The RDB was explicitly designed to guide international conservation priorities by identifying which species were most threatened by extinction. But from the outset, decisions over which taxa to include in the database were driven as much by political, institutional and sentimental factors as by scientific ones. Japanese ornithologists played a prominent role in producing this database, and in 1956 successfully lobbied for Steller's Albatross, at the time only known to nest on the abandoned Japanese island of Torishima, to be added to the incipient RDB. This international campaign dovetailed with a domestic campaign in which ornithologists argued that nature conservation would help to rehabilitate Japan's international reputation in the wake of World War II. The Japanese government duly canonized Steller's Albatross and its Torishima breeding ground as an officially recognised "natural monument". But in the 1970s the movement took a curious turn when albatrosses were discovered roosting on the disputed Senkaku/Diaoyu Islands. The same ornithologists now blocked Chinese proposals to conserve Steller's Albatross through "international cooperation", arguing that the species' status as a "natural monument" showed that it was exclusively indigenous to the geobody of the Japanese nation. To this day the species remains a diplomatic flashpoint, with Japanese naturalists lobbying their government to protect the bird’s Senkaku/Diaoyu nesting site, whilst Chinese media denounce Japan’s “attempts to snatch our islands using the pretext of environmental protection”. Speaker: Paul Kreitman, Assistant Professor of Japanese History

Discussion | Blockchain: The Post-Hype Future


While it may look like we’re in blockchain lull after the crypto boom of early 2018, there are those who argue that we’re now in the very earliest stages of blockchain development, its use cases, and capabilities of the technology — that we’re seeing the birth of the real blockchain. This event brings together a panel of experts from IBM Blockchain Garage, ConsenSys Labs, Kadena, and more to map out the next phase of blockchain, its practical applications, and untapped opportunities, all in an evening of discussion and ideas that makes NYC a hub for blockchain innovation.

Talk | Celebrating The Jerome Robbins Dance Division


In 1944 a tenacious, forward-looking librarian in The New York Public Library’s music division had a vision: The Library needed to be a place for dance. She courted and cajoled and delivered for the Library the archives of Isadora Duncan, Doris Humphrey, Ruth St. Denis, Ted Shawn, and other dance luminaries. Seventy-five years later, the Jerome Robbins Dance Division is the largest and most comprehensive dance archive in the world. Each generation of curators and staff have helped the collection grow. For this Dance Division celebration, all five dance curators, including the founding curator Genevieve Oswald, come to the Library stage to share their favorite acquisitions and memories.

Lecture | The Civil War and Critical History


From the first shots of the war itself to recent debates about Neonazis and Confederate monuments, the history of the Civil War in the United States has played a major role in thinking about racism and democracy. The anti-racist side of Civil War memory has, however, too often attached itself to US state-building projects, projects of nation, empire, and of liberal citizenship. In his lecture, Andrew Zimmermann will discuss his current book project on the American Civil War as transnational working-class revolution, emphasizing questions of race, class, violence, and social transformation. Zimmerman is the author of Anthropology and Antihumanism in Imperial Germany (Chicago, 2001) and Alabama in Africa: Booker T. Washington, the German Empire, and the Globalization of the New South (Princeton, 2010).

Author Reading | Wayward Lives, Beautiful Experiments: Intimate Histories of Social Upheaval


Saidiya Hartman’s highly anticipated new book wrestles with the question: What is a free life? In the early 20th century, a social revolution unfolded in the city. Hartman’s book explores the ways young black women created forms of intimacy and kinship indifferent to the dictates of respectability, and outside the bounds of law. They cleaved to and cast off lovers, exchanged sex to subsist, and revised the meaning of marriage. Longing and desire fueled their experiments in how to live and shaped a cultural movement that transformed the urban landscape.

Discussion | Exploring Ethical Dilemmas in Religion: From Theology to Congregations


Are religions ethical? What kind of ethics (if any) do religions teach? What makes a particular theology ethical - or not? How are theologies interpreted in congregations? What core values hold congregations together? What role does a clergy leader play? What are the responsibilities of a congregation towards its clergy and of clergy to the congregation? You'll explore these and other questions with someone who grew up in a Catholic congregation, raised her children in the Brooklyn Society for Ethical Culture, and has served the Long Island and New York Societies as clergy leader. Anne holds a Doctor of Ministry degree in pastoral care and counseling from Hebrew Union College and is the Humanist Chaplain at New York University and Columbia University. What does one do when there’s no clearly defined ethical road to take? This program features speakers from a variety of backgrounds — medicine, law, business, science, education, the arts, social work, etc. — who share their experience and knowledge of ethical issues in those fields.

Lecture | Movable Type, Multiple Scripts, and Changing Alphabets in the late Ottoman Empire


The transliteration of Turkish writing from Arabic letters to Latin letters is often cited as a triumph of early 20th-century modernism. While this change was largely motivated by ideology, the presence and depth of Greek and Armenian learning cultures, a multi-script reading environment, and the slow adoption of the printing press for Ottoman Turkish writing all contributed. This talk will take a look at how print technology, the graphic/lettering landscape, and literacy all contributed to, and were not just derivative of, the cultural ideas that were carried forward. Speaker Juliette Cezzar was director of the BFA Communication Design and Design & Technology programs from 2011–2014. She served as president of AIGA New York’s board of directors from 2014–16.

Author Reading | Foucault in California: A True Story Wherein the Great French Philosopher Drops Acid in the Valley of Death


In The Lives of Michel Foucault, David Macey quotes the iconic French philosopher as speaking "nostalgically...of 'an unforgettable evening on LSD, in carefully prepared doses, in the desert night, with delicious music, and nice people'." This came to pass in 1975, when Foucault spent Memorial Day weekend in Southern California at the invitation of Simeon Wade-ostensibly to guest-lecture at the Claremont Graduate School where Wade was an assistant professor, but in truth to explore what he called the Valley of Death. Led by Wade and Wade's partner Michael Stoneman, Foucault experimented with psychotropic drugs for the first time; by morning he was crying and proclaiming that he knew Truth. Foucault in California is Wade's firsthand account of that long weekend. Felicitous and often humorous prose vaults readers headlong into the erudite and subversive circles of the Claremont intelligentsia: parties in Wade's bungalow, intensive dialogues between Foucault and his disciples at a Taoist utopia in the Angeles Forest (whose denizens call Foucault "Country Joe"); and, of course, the fabled synesthetic acid trip in Death Valley, set to the strains of Bach and Stockhausen.

As Jones reveals, some of the best-loved devices of our shared social media language are a result of Black women’s innovations, from well-known movement-building hashtags (#BlackLivesMatter, #SayHerName, and #BlackGirlMagic) to the now ubiquitous use of threaded tweets as a marketing and storytelling tool.

Author Reading | This Chair Rocks: A Manifesto Against Ageism


Author, activist, and TED speaker Ashton Applewhite has written a rousing manifesto calling for an end to discrimination and prejudice on the basis of age. In our youth obsessed culture, we’re bombarded by media images and messages about the despairs and declines of our later years. Beauty and pharmaceutical companies work overtime to convince people to purchase products that will retain their youthful appearance and vitality. Wrinkles are embarrassing. Gray hair should be colored and bald heads covered with implants. Older minds and bodies are too frail to keep up with the pace of the modern working world and olders should just step aside for the new generation. Ashton Applewhite once held these beliefs too until she realized where this prejudice comes from and the damage it does.
