Discussion |
In the last century or so the author has largely disappeared from literary criticism--since the second half of the 20th century psychocriticism and biographical readings are almost absent from academia today. Considering the author in interpretation can certainly limit and reduce criticism, but perhaps it can also expand it. There are new forms of storytelling today--contemporary, digital--that may let us see how psychocriticism, and the explicit presence of an author in her work of fiction, may be less restrictive than we once thought. Who are the writers whose lives, and whose presences in their own work, do not constrain but rather multiply our understanding of that literary work? With presentations by: Professor Edward Mendelson (Department of English), Professor Nicholas Dames (Department of English), and Anna Krauthamer (The Center for Contemporary Critical Thought). Moderated by Professor Dennis Tenen with an introduction by Professor Bernard Harcourt.

Discussion |
As scholars observe, the pronounced effects of urban inequality are in the persistence of residential segregation and in neighborhood income polarization. On the one hand, gated communities constitute some of the most privileged and affluent communities, and as such contribute to segregation. On the other hand, mixed-income communities are increasingly being promoted through a multitude of housing policies as a pathway towards desegregation. The empirical evidence, however, is not conclusive about whether or not this mixedness indeed contributes to residential integration. Particularly, there are no studies about the specific impact of economically integrated neighborhoods on levels of metropolitan residential segregation. The innovative aspect of the proposed research is that it provides such evidence by examining the link between mixed-income neighborhoods and gated communities. Lecturer Elena Vesselinov is Associate Professor of Sociology at Queens College and the Graduate Center, City University of New York.

Deborah Turbeville (1932-2013) was an American fashion photographer. Although she started out as a fashion editor at Harper's Bazaar, she became a photographer in the 70s. She is widely credited with adding a darker, more brooding element to fashion photography, beginning in the early 1970s – she, Guy Bourdin and Helmut Newton changed it from traditional, well-lit images into something much more "edgy" looking.

At the end of the 19th century, Thomas B. Clarke donated four ancient Greek vases to the venerable Century Association, a private club founded by members of the Hudson River School. This talk serves as a public debut for three of the vases —one black-figure and two red-figure—which have been all but lost to the scholarly and academic community since they entered the club’s collection in 1891. I address briefly the phenomenon of private New York social clubs and their impressive art collections before turning to the iconography and the style of the vases themselves. Speaker Jennifer Udell has been curator of the Fordham Museum of Greek, Etruscan and Roman art since June 2007. Reception to follow.

Three Stones Make a Wall traces the history of archaeology from an amateur pursuit to the cutting-edge science it is today by taking the reader on a tour of major archaeological sites and discoveries, from Pompeii to Petra, Troy to the Terracotta Warriors, and Mycenae to Megiddo and Masada. Cline brings to life the personalities behind these digs, including Heinrich Schliemann, the former businessman who excavated Troy, and Mary Leakey, whose discoveries advanced our understanding of human origins. The discovery of the peoples and civilizations of the past is presented in vivid detail, from the Hittites and Minoans to the Inca, Aztec, and Moche. Along the way, the book addresses the questions archaeologists are asked most often: How do you know where to dig? How are excavations actually done? How do you know how old something is? Who gets to keep what is found?

Hailed as “the hippest hangout since St. Nicholas Pub” by The Amsterdam News, Marc Cary's weekly event, The Harlem Sessions, has rapidly become the uptown hang for a host of great musicians. Founded in the Lenox Avenue spot Gin Fizz, the jam is celebrating its second anniversary with a number of special guests from the sessions, whose stage has been graced by the likes of Vijay Iyer, Ben Williams, Bertha Hope , Kebbie Williams, Braxton Cook, Igmar Thomas, Corey Wallace, members of The United Nations Youth Orchestra, and nearly 100 other musicians, poets, and dancers who make up the fabric of NYC’s thriving jazz scene. Jazz pianist, keyboardist, producer, and composer Marc Cary holds tight to his roots in Washington, D.C.’s go-go music scene, but they represent only one element among the myriad. Cary’s interests run from Indian classical to Malian music to hip-hop. He started his career working with Betty Carter, a legendary vocalist famous for drawing soul and sincerity out of her bands, and went on to work with Roy Hargrove, Dizzy Gillespie, Erykah Badu, Shirley Horn, Stefon Harris, Q-Tip, and–most influential of all–Abbey Lincoln.   Connect to the Facebook event page for extra insights on this program.   Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
