Book Discussion | Communities of Care: The Social Ethics of Victorian Fiction by Talia Schaffer (online)


Karen Bourier, Sophia Hsu, and Adela Pinch, leading theorists of 19th century ethics, sentiment, disability, crowds, and collectives come together to think about Talia Schaffer's new book. Schaffer argues that nineteenth-century fiction chronicles small voluntary social organizations forming around a person in need and that we can use these valuable case studies to help regulate our own collectives. Schaffer offers 'care' as a term for action rather than feeling, and 'community' as a fluid, egalitarian small group; Communities of Care also writes a new history of ideas of bodyminds before the medical model. Among other lines of inquiry, the panel may take up Schaffer's recommendations for rethinking academic service, teaching, and research according to care community ideas. Speakers will offer brief responses, followed by a lively Q & A.

Book Discussion | All That Glitters: The Ava Cherry Story (online)


A book talk with singer and model Ava Cherry upon the release of her new memoir “All That Glitters: The Ava Cherry Story”! Cherry was raised in Chicago and grew up loving Motown, Aretha Franklin, and Gladys Knight, but a four-year stint with rock star David Bowie would forever change her musical direction. In the 1970s, as part of a backing trio with Robin Clark and Luther Vandross, she performed on stage and in the studio with Bowie, appearing on some of his most acclaimed albums, notably “Young Americans.” Cherry and Bowie were lovers as well, and remained friends after their relationship ended. This program will be moderated by Brian Alessandro.

Panelists include: Ted Berger is Executive Director Emeritus of the New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) where he began in 1973 as the country's first statewide Artists-in-Schools Coordinator, becoming NYFA's Executive Director in 1980 until retiring in 2005.

Play | Decomposed Theater or: The Human Trashcan (online)


The BFA production of Matei Visniec's play, directed by Ana Margineanu. In a fragmented world, what remains? How much of ourselves, our memories, our souls, and our experiences will survive -- and in what order? And how do we fit these pieces together? Using theatrical magic, Ana Margineanu and students from the New School's BFA in Dramatic Arts have reassembled Matei Visniec's Theatre Decomposed into an original confection that explores and celebrates the emergence of the human spirit even as the world has shattered all around us.
