Book Discussion | The Sisterhood: The Secret History of Women at the CIA


Created in the aftermath of World War II, the Central Intelligence Agency relied on women even as it attempted to channel their talents and keep them down. Women sent cables, made dead drops, and maintained the agency’s secrets. Despite discrimination—even because of it—women who started as clerks, secretaries, or unpaid spouses rose to become some of the CIA’s shrewdest operatives. They were unlikely spies—and that’s exactly what made them perfect for the role. Because women were seen as unimportant, pioneering female intelligence officers moved unnoticed around Bonn, Geneva, and Moscow, stealing secrets from under the noses of their KGB adversaries. Back at headquarters, women built the CIA’s critical archives—first by hand, then by computer. And they noticed things that the men at the top didn’t see. As the CIA faced an identity crisis after the Cold War, it was a close-knit network of female analysts who spotted the rising threat of al-Qaeda—though their warnings were repeatedly brushed aside. After the 9/11 attacks, more women joined the agency as a new job, targeter, came to prominence. They showed that data analysis would be crucial to the post-9/11 national security landscape—an effort that culminated spectacularly in the CIA’s successful effort to track down bin Laden in his Pakistani compound. Propelled by the same meticulous reporting and vivid storytelling that infused Code Girls, Liza Mundy's book offers a riveting new perspective on history, revealing how women at the CIA ushered in the modern intelligence age, and how their silencing made the world more dangerous.

Book Discussion | Work, Retire, Repeat: The Uncertainty of Retirement in the New Economy


Professor Teresa Ghilarducci discusses her new book, a damning portrait of the dire realities of retirement in the United States—and how we can fix it. While the French went on strike in 2023 to protest the increase in the national retirement age, workers in the United States have all but given up on the notion of dignified retirement for all. Instead, Americans—whose elders face the highest risk of poverty compared to workers in peer nations—are fed feel-good stories about Walmart clerks who can finally retire because a customer raised the necessary funds through a GoFundMe campaign. Many argue that the solution to the financial straits of American retirement is simple: people need to just work longer. Yet this call to work longer is misleading in a multitude of ways, including its endangering of the health of workers and its discrimination against people who work in lower-wage occupations. In Work, Retire, Repeat, Teresa Ghilarducci tells the stories of elders locked into jobs—not because they love to work but because they must. But this doesn’t need to be the reality. Work, Retire, Repeat shows how relatively low-cost changes to how we finance and manage retirement will allow people to truly choose how they spend their golden years.

Book Discussion | The Gender of Capital: How Families Perpetuate Wealth Inequality


In many countries, property law grants equal rights to men and women. Why, then, do women still accumulate less wealth than men? Combining quantitative, ethnographic, and archival research, Céline Bessière and co-author Sybille Gollac explain how and why, in every class of society, women are economically disadvantaged with respect to their husbands, fathers, and brothers. The reasons lie with the unfair economic arrangements that play out in divorce proceedings, estate planning, and other crucial situations where law and family life intersect.

Discussion | Tracking the Deportation State: Public Records Requests, Data Analysis, and Research on Immigration Enforcement


One of the most significant barriers to scholarly research on U.S. border enforcement and immigration control is institutional closure. Closed institutions—such as immigrant detention centers, immigration courts, and ports of entry along the border—create added barriers to researcher access and limit the production of knowledges that might critique, reform, or transform these systems. To challenge institutional closure, TRAC (Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse) at Syracuse University has spent the last 30 years using Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests and litigation to make large government datasets on immigration enforcement available to researchers and to the wider public. TRAC’s data provides one-of-a-kind insight into who gets asylum, how many immigrants are detained, and where immigrants facing deportation live—all at a scale that enables multi-disciplinary mix-methods research. This is a conversation with Dr. Austin Kocher, immigration researcher and assistant professor at the Transactional Research Access Clearinghouse (TRAC), a research institute at Syracuse University that uses Freedom of Information Act requests to study the U.S. immigration enforcement apparatus. During the event, Dr. Kocher will unpack TRAC’s various methodologies, key research findings, and ongoing impact on public policy and popular discourse.

Lecture | When Women Pursue Justice: An Illustrated Talk


When asked how she wanted history to remember her, Shirley Chisholm (1924-2005) dismissed her milestone accomplishments achieved as the first woman and/or African American. Instead, she wanted to be known as “a catalyst for change” — words emblazoned on the pennant she holds aloft in Artmaker’s 2005 mural "When Women Pursue Justice" (located at 498 Greene Avenue in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn). Sharing the wall with Chisholm are 89 women who, over the past 150 years, also led or participated in movements for social change in the United States. The mural was painted by 13 professional woman artists, 5 young women interns, and over 30 volunteer artists and neighborhood residents. U.S. and foreign-born, Native American, and women of color, these women — 13 “movement leaders” and 67 “activists” as well as the 9 nineteenth-century “ancestors” who inspired them — influenced all spheres of American life. Many were jailed, several severely injured, some killed for their efforts. Yet they were undaunted in their struggles to achieve voting rights, civil rights and racial justice, health and reproductive rights, gay rights, immigrant rights, environmental justice and protection, and workplace/arts access and equality. In her illustrated talk, Jane Weissman — the mural’s project director and a participating artist — discusses their achievements in the larger context of twentieth-century activism. While many of them are well known and easily recognizable, several are unfamiliar to most Americans, their struggles never properly recognized or faded from memory. Pointing out their locations in this mural that restores them to their proper place in history, she will guide the audience to those visual “conversations” that connect these remarkable women within and across generations. Their endeavors give truth to the words Susan B. Anthony penned at age eighty-six: “Failure is impossible.”

Discussion | 2 Nobel Prize-Winning Economists in Conversation (in-person and online)


Economics is supposed to be a useful science -- a discipline that helps us devise policies that serve the public interest. But are economists still playing that role, or have they become captives of orthodoxy and defenders of the status quo? Two Nobel Prize winners, Angus Deaton and Paul Krugman, join in a candid conversation on the economist's craft, the current political landscape, and insights from Deaton's new book. In Economics in America: An Immigrant Economist Explores the Land of Inequality, the British-born U.S. citizen blends personal stories with social commentary in his incisive and witty style. Deaton is the Dwight D. Eisenhower Professor of Economics and International Affairs Emeritus at Princeton University; Krugman is a columnist for The New York Times and distinguished professor of economics.

Book Discussion | Someone Who Isn't Me by Geoff Rickly


Geoff Rickly’s debut novel Someone Who Isn’t Me is a feverish journey through the psyche of someone who no longer recognizes himself. When Geoff hears that a drug called ibogaine might be able to save him from his heroin addiction, he goes to a clinic in Mexico to confront the darkest and most destructive versions of himself. In this modern reimagining of the Divine Comedy, survival lurks in the darkest corners of Geoff’s brain, asking, will he make it? Can anyone? At this event, Geoff Rickly will discuss his new book with NYPL Librarian and musician Ashley Dalle.

A truly one-of-a-kind modern talent, the composer, historian, activist, and performer Jeremy Dutcher represents the Indigenous Neqotkuk people of New Brunswick, Canada. He identifies as a "Two-Spirit" song carrier, an Indigenous term encompassing the intersecting identities of gender, sexuality, and culture for those who might otherwise be labeled as LGBTQIA+ and Indigenous. Dutcher gained international acclaim for his Polaris Prize-winning debut album Wolastoqiyik Lintuwakonawa, which combined his own compositions with samples of his ancestors' voices from century-old anthropological wax cylinder recordings. His latest album, Motewolonuwok, is a moving exploration of contemporary Indigeneity and Dutcher's place within it. Having previously only vocalized exclusively in his endangered language of Wolastoqey, this new work marks Dutcher’s first time writing and singing in English, providing a direct line of communication that platforms his community’s stories of resilience for all to experience.
