Greenwich Village is among Manhattan's most desirable and expensive residential neighborhoods. It's history, however, betrays it's monied status. The Village, with it's quiet, shaded streets, lined with lovely brick and brownstone townhouses, was once the incubating ground of artistic, social and political movements that have helped shape US history. From the Beats to the Folk Movement, from workers rights to gay rights, the Village has often been the center of it all.

Lecture |
The Roma, one of Europe’s largest trans-national minority groups, continue to experience high rates of unemployment and social isolation. Access to quality education and entrenched prejudice limit opportunities for Roma development and inclusion. Sarah Perrine will present case studies from the field to describe how her foundation is applying innovative approaches to a centuries-old challenge in legalizing squatter neighborhoods, improving access to education, and providing individualized pre-natal care for the Roma population in Bulgaria. Lecturer Sarah Perrine established the Trust for Social Achievement to help overcome achievement gaps between the Roma minority and mainstream populations. To do this, her organization emphasizes the need to accurately assess impact and demonstrate progress, so as to build confidence that change is possible. By collaborating with more than fifty local partners and organizations throughout Bulgaria, her organization is impacting tens of thousands of children and youth in more than 200 schools and 200 kindergartens.

The area around the High Line Park was a vital business district of New York City, supplying fresh fruits, French Cheeses and Russian caviar as well as fresh meats to City markets. The hustle and bustle of the streets induced the City to elevate the railroad trains delivering goods to the commercial buildings. When interstate truck traffic made the railway outdated, it fell into ruin, only to be regenerated as a park.

Published by Koenig Books, the Reader brings a diverse range of cultural figures into a shared cultural space, including Hugo Ball, W.E.B. Du Bois, Stokely Carmichael, Joan Retallack, and Gertrude Stein, as well as artists from different generations, such as Joan Jonas and William Pope.L. It also features essays written for the the Reader by Adrienne Edwards, Laura Hoptman, Tom McDonough, Jenny Schlenzka, and Susan Thompson. The event will highlight the book’s contents through readings and performances by the edition’s editor, Stephen Squibb; poet and John Cage scholar, Joan Retallack; a New Orleans-style brass band (SugarTone Brass Band); and Adam Pendleton.

Where do good design ideas come from? Recent research in neuroscience sheds light on this perennial question. A level of neuronal processing inaccessible to consciousness excels in fast information processing, recognizing complex patterns, and drawing inferences: the cognitive nonconscious. This talk will present a synthesis of these results along with speculations about the sources of creativity in design and related fields.  Speaker N. Katherine Hayles teaches and writes on the relations of literature, science and technology in the 20th and 21st centuries. Her print book, How We Think: Digital Media and Contemporary Technogenesis, was published by the University of Chicago Press in spring 2012.

A raft with eleven Algerian refugees, running low on fuel. A cruise ship with a small town’s worth of international passengers and crew members. An Irish freighter. A Spanish rescue vessel. One single point of convergence in a vast wash of blue water. Collision is a maritime thriller by Merle Kröger, one of Germany’s most celebrated crime writers, building suspense through the eyes of a diverse array of memorable characters, among them Karim Yacine, the Algerian captain of the raft disable; Lalita Masarangi, member of the massive cruise ship’s security team; and Sybille Malinowski, an elderly passenger on holiday with her sister, which, as the drama at sea continues to unfold, seems to be turning increasingly sinister.

Elizabeth Hardwick wrote during the golden age of the American literary essay. For Hardwick, the essay was an imaginative endeavor, a serious form, criticism worthy of the literature in question. In the essays collected here she covers civil rights demonstrations in the 1960s, describes places where she lived and locations she visited, and writes about the foundations of American literature—Melville, James, Wharton—and the changes in American fiction, though her reading is wide and international.

Published by the Asian American Literary Review, Open in Emergency: A Special Issue on Asian American Mental Health is a work of book art that decolonizes mental health and opens up a wealth of new approaches to care. Featuring a deck of tarot cards, a “hacked” mock DSM, a foldout testimonial tapestry and more, the issue works to reimagine what counts as unwellness and wellness in Asian American communities through a dynamic mix of writing, visual art, and interactive mini-projects. Welcome guest editor Mimi Khúc and contributors Tanwi Nandini Islam and Wo Chan for an evening of readings, discussion and interactive tarot.

Yamini Nayar’s (US/India) work intersects photography, sculpture and the language of architecture to foreground questions about the built environment and its psychological and social dimensions. In her studio-based practice, photographs are documents made from mixed media assemblages and installations, in which the photograph is the only trace of an invested process of physical construction. Temporality, materiality and performance are central to her work, as is the hand.
