Discussion | The NYC Office Market: What Might the Future Hold? (online)


Will “the office” ever be the same again?  During the two years of the Covid-19 pandemic, our working lives underwent profound changes. One of the most notable innovations was employees working from home on a large scale. Has this now become a permanent feature of our future working lives? How is the NYC office market adapting? Are “hot desks” in our future? What other changes are being considered and implemented to accommodate innovative, more flexible working arrangements? What are the broader implications for the NYC office real estate markets?

Discussion | Can Nuclear Power Be On Time and On Budget: A Discussion of Nuclear Power Construction (online)


Historically construction of nuclear power plants has been over budget and over schedule, some materially so, leading to significant financial implications for the companies building them. This challenging nuclear construction history can provide a significant disincentive to companies and countries looking to build new nuclear power plants. This is a discussion on how the historical challenges of nuclear power plant construction might be overcome. In particular, we will focus on a recently-completed series of large nuclear industry projects at a wide number of Department of Energy sites across the U.S., including several which were completed ahead of schedule and under budget. The panel includes two leaders of major recent successes, and we will discuss how lessons learned from these projects might provide blueprints for next generation nuclear power construction.

Lecture | Galvanizing Nostalgia? Indigenous Siberians in the Context of War (in-person and online)


Russia has entered a new period of instability, made especially precarious due to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. This talk builds on and updates Marjorie Mandelstam Balzer's recently published monograph Galvanizing Nostalgia? Indigeneity and Sovereignty in Siberia. It explores critical questions for the survival of Russia in its nominally federal form. Will Russia fall apart along the lines of its internal republics, as did the Soviet Union? Why have non-Russians been mobilized in numbers higher than their ethnic proportions? Are non-Russian peoples of Turkic and Mongolian backgrounds, far from Moscow, protesting? From the Arctic to Lake Baikal and the magnificent Altai mountains, Indigenous peoples are striving for degrees of self-determination. Despite curtailment of civil society under President Putin, many are defending their lands and rights without being secessionist. Some have fled into exile and formed politicized diasporas. Based on cultural anthropology research featuring major republics of Eastern Siberia– Sakha (Yakutia), Buryatia and Tyva (Tuva) — this talk highlights Indigenous concerns.

Discussion | What Is Climate Grief? (online)


In this introduction to climate grief, psychologists and activists reveal how our concern for the environment has developed into an urgent mental health crisis. Grief is most often associated with human loss, but it can also apply to our responses to climate change and the destruction of the natural environment. In this roundtable discussion, leading experts in mental health, climate justice, and environmental humanities provide a range of perspectives on climate grief as well as opportunities for growth as we struggle with ecological crisis. Leslie Davenport, Kyle X. Hill, LaUra Schmidt, and Tori Tsui share personal examples of eco-loss they have experienced, the collective experience of this trauma, and how we can navigate a path forward.

Film | The Sandpiper (1965) with Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton


A love story about a "free soul" artist and a married minister who runs a private school that her troubled nine-year-old son has been court-ordered to attend. Director: Vincente Minnelli Cast: Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton, Eva Marie Saint, Charles Bronson Elizabeth Taylor began her career as a child actress in the early 1940s and was one of the most popular stars of classical Hollywood cinema in the 1950s. She then became the world's highest paid movie star in the 1960s, remaining a well-known public figure for the rest of her life. In 1999, the American Film Institute named her the seventh-greatest female screen legend of Classic Hollywood cinema. Richard Burton established himself as a formidable Shakespearean actor in the 1950s, and gave a memorable performance as Hamlet in 1964. He is widely regarded as one of the finest actors of his generation. Burton was nominated for an Academy Award seven times, but never won. He received BAFTAs, Golden Globes, and Tony Awards for Best Actor. In the mid-1960s, Burton became a top box office star, and by the late 1960s, he was one of the highest-paid actors in the world.

Lecture | Taking Psychoanalysis to the Community: Changing Minds, Changing Lives


In a recent report by the National Center for Children in Poverty, children are over-represented in the numbers of people (38 million) living in poverty in the U.S., with 38 percent (14.4 million) living in low income families. The layering of stressors, such as living in homes with domestic violence, housing instability, parents with mental health difficulties, including minority and marginalized children, contribute to the vast proportion of these 14 million homes. At the same time, there are calls on psychoanalysis to step up and consider how social and global challenges could be addressed by expanding the focus of psychoanalytic interventions to beyond the individual clinician and patient. How can we bring psycho-dynamically-oriented treatment to a wider community, especially those that would not otherwise have access? This talk will present data from a randomly controlled trial demonstrating the efficacy of The Group Attachment Based Interventio, a collaboration between colleagues at Montefiore Hospital which delivers a community-based intervention to help support parents who have experienced disparities in multiple systems of care. Presented by Miriam Steele, Professor of Psychology.

Lecture | Eurydice of Macedon and Memory of the Past (in-person and online)


Study of ancient Macedonia used to focus nearly exclusively on Philip II and his son Alexander III the Great and material culture was not understood as relevant to political history. Royal women appeared not as participants in monarchy but window dressing. Dependence on literary sources generated narrow readings of the Macedonian past. Knowledge of Eurydice, mother of Philip II and grandmother of Alexander the Great, depended on works written many centuries after her death, providing Roman, only indirectly Macedonian, memory of Eurydice. This literary tradition says Eurydice engaged in power politics as either a heroic mother or a murderous one. That is all we knew until 1982 when Chrysoula Saatsoglou-Paliadeli began to excavate the “sanctuary of Eucleia.” She found dedications by Eurydice to the goddess Eucleia and, other evidence of Eurydice’s presence in Aegae/Vergina. Indications of the enduring veneration of Eurydice’s dedications and of the sanctuary appeared. This physical evidence indicates how memory of Eurydice, her family, the Argead dynasty, and the Macedonian kingdom, evolved. The sanctuary acquired other layers of meaning; it encompassed memory and veneration of a lost and grander past and of the family that helped to bring about that grandness and yet it also linked that past grandeur to a less grand present. Speaker: Elizabeth Carney, Professor Emerita, Clemson College.

Book Discussion | Confidence Man: The Making of Donald Trump and the Breaking of America, with New York Times Reporter Maggie Haberman (in-person and online)


Few journalists working today have covered former President Donald Trump more extensively than Pulitzer Prize winner Maggie Haberman, and few understand him and his motivations better. Now, demonstrating her majestic command of this story, Haberman reveals in full the depth of her understanding of the 45th president himself, and of what the Trump phenomenon means. Interviews with hundreds of sources and numerous interviews over the years with Trump himself portray a complicated and often contradictory historical figure: smarter than his critics contend and colder and more calculating than his allies believe. Haberman's book portrays a man who embedded himself in popular culture, galvanizing support for a run for high office for which he began preliminary spadework 30 years ago, and ultimately becoming a leader who--as Confidence Man shows--pushed American democracy to the brink. In this revelatory and newsmaking book, Haberman brings the events of Trump's life into a single mesmerizing work. It is widely considered the definitive account of one of the most norms-shattering and consequential eras in American political history.

Opening Reception | The Omen: A 2-Artist Show


An exhibition of recent paintings by Albert Oehlen juxtaposed with large-scale sculptural works by Paul McCarthy. Oehlen uses abstract, figurative, and collaged elements—often applying self-imposed formal constraints—to disrupt the histories and conventions of modern painting while acknowledging the continuing significance of classical art. Approaching his practice as a perceptual challenge, he moves freely between planned and improvised strategies. And while championing self-consciously “bad” painting characterized by crude drawing and jarring coloration, he infuses expressive gesture with Surrealist attitude, disparaging the quest for stable form and meaning. McCarthy has been known since the 1970s for performances, videos, sculptures, and installations that confront viewers with a perverse Grand Guignol vision populated by an array of grotesque characters. Pairing a focus on sex and violence with a consciously infantilized approach to human bodily function, he probes the darkest corners of the American subconscious, exposing its synthetic manifestations in the mass media and built environment. McCarthy’s clownish, dystopian twist on utopian European Actionism continues to exert a powerful influence.

Discussion | The Fall of Zahak: Revolutionary Possibilities in Iran


This multimodal event brings together Iranian scholars, students, activists and performers to make sense of the recent uprising in Iran, and the brutal response from its government. They'll start by contextualizing the broader issues currently facing Iranian people (e.g., political participation, human rights, freedom of speech, gender equity, rights of minorities, economic conditions), Iran’s complex relationship with Islam, democracy, gender equity, and the west, as well as its history of feminist movements and the 1979 revolution. Next, they'll outline how the Islamic Government has conducted itself over the last four decades, and the ways in which such theocracy has created, fostered and exacerbated various hierarchies, inequalities and injustices. The recent uprising was sparked by the tragic death of a 22-year-old Iranian-Kurdish woman, (Mahsa Amini), who died as a result of police brutality for displaying improper hijab. At inception, the protests were girl- and women-led and conceptualized as a Gen Z movement, but rapidly grew to widespread unrest and supported by men, ethic and other minorities, garnering ongoing mass support inside and outside of the country, from a plethora of diverse Iranians. We ask if this revolutionary uprising can only end in regime change, how this may come about, and what Iran might look like afterwards. The event seeks to push us beyond western ontologies of what democracy, human rights and political citizenship mean, and to make sense of how greater freedoms may be realized in Iran, for the people, by the people, situated within a framework that resonates with Iranian history and culture.

Talk | "Give us our husbands back": Civil Resistance in Nazi-Era Berlin (online)


At the end of February 1943, the Nazis arrested thousands of Jews in Berlin for deportation to concentration camps. Among those arrested were 1,800 Jewish men who were married to "Aryan" women. These men were held in a building at Rosenstrasse 2-4 in Berlin-Mitte. Their wives and family members protested in front of the building on Rosenstrasse from late February into early March of 1943, demanding the men's release. The imprisoned men eventually returned home. To this day, the women of Rosenstrasse are inspiring role models for civic engagement.

Discussion | Redaction: Poet and Visual Artist Confront the Abuses of the Criminal Justice System (In Person AND Online)

Book Discussion | 2 New Memoirs: The Invisible Kingdom / Easy Beauty


Meghan O'Rourke's The Invisible Kingdom: Reimagining Chronic Illness A landmark exploration of one of the most consequential and mysterious issues of our time: the rise of chronic illness and autoimmune diseases. A silent epidemic of chronic illnesses afflicts tens of millions of Americans: these are diseases that are poorly understood, frequently marginalized, and can go undiagnosed and unrecognized altogether. Renowned writer Meghan O'Rourke delivers a revelatory investigation into this elusive category of "invisible" illness that encompasses autoimmune diseases, post-treatment Lyme disease syndrome, and now long COVID, synthesizing the personal and the universal to help all of us through this new frontier. Chloe Cooper Jones's Easy Beauty: A Memoir Chloe Cooper Jones--Pulitzer Prize finalist, philosophy professor, Whiting Creative Nonfiction Grant recipient--an "exquisite" (Oprah Daily) and groundbreaking memoir about disability, motherhood, and the search for a new way of seeing and being seen. It's a bold, revealing account of moving through the world in a body that looks different than most. Jones learned early on to factor "pain calculations" into every plan, every situation. Born with a rare congenital condition called sacral agenesis which affects both her stature and gait, her pain is physical.

Play | Lillian Hellman's Days to Come: Smalltown Labor Strife (online thru Apr. 2)


Mint Theater Company presents Lillian Hellman’s second play, a family drama set against the backdrop of labor strife in a small Ohio town which threatens to tear apart both town and family. Andrew Rodman is running the family business and failing at it. The workers are out on strike and things are getting desperate. “Papa would have known what to do,” his sister Cora nags, “and without wasting time and money.” But it’s too late, Rodman is bringing in strikebreakers, naively failing to anticipate the disastrous impact that this will have on his family and their place in the community where they have lived for generations.

Staged Reading | Provocative Play About Roe v. Wade


Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 case that legalized abortion, is still fiercely debated over forty years later. In this incisive play, acclaimed writer Lisa Loomer cuts through the headlines and rhetoric to reveal the divergent personal journeys of lawyer Sarah Weddington and plaintiff Norma McCorvey ("Jane Roe") in the years following the fateful decision. In turns shocking, humorous, and poignant, Roe reflects the polarization in America today while illuminating the heart and passion each side has for its cause. The reading of this play will be followed by a panel conversation with experts in the medical and mental health field and their take on abortion.
