Discussion | In Defense of Teaching Black Studies: Reading, Writing & Justice


On this Election Day, join authors Kimberlé Crenshaw and Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor to learn more about cutting-edge ideas in the field of Black Studies, and to receive practical, classroom-ready resources. Black Studies and Black History are under attack and more important than ever. Nearly half of all students in the United States attend schools in states where Black History is, in some form, censored by law. Meanwhile, parents, teachers, and students are pushing back, organizing to stand up for the importance of teaching Black Studies in the classroom. Recently, this scholarship has grown tremendously, yielding new insights into the origins and development of the United States, the world, economics, politics, art, and our contemporary cultural moment.

Lecture | Trauma, Privilege, and Adventure: Jewish Refugees Between "Orient" and European Catastrophe


Atina Grossmann, professor of history in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, discusses the ambivalent, paradoxical, and diverse experiences, emotions, and memories of Jews who found refuge from National Socialism and the Holocaust in India and Iran after 1933. Always shadowed by the emerging European catastrophe, uprooted Jews were also precariously privileged as white Europeans, in non-western, colonial, or semi-colonial societies. An extensive collection of family correspondence and memorabilia extending from wartime Nazi Berlin throughout the global diaspora of German Jewry as well as archival, literary, visual, and oral history sources illuminates refugees’ everyday lives, in the changing context of interwar fascination and contact with the “Orient,” global war against fascism, anti-colonial independence movements, and gradual revelations about the destruction of the European world they had escaped.

Book Discussion | Puta Life: Seeing Latinas, Working Sex


Author Juana María Rodríguez probes the ways that sexual labor and Latina sexuality become visual phenomena. Drawing on state archives, illustrated biographies, documentary films, photojournalistic essays, graphic novels, and digital spaces, she focuses on the figure of the puta—the whore, that phantasmatic figure of Latinized feminine excess. Rodríguez’s eclectic archive features the faces and stories of women whose lives have been mediated by sex work’s stigmatization and criminalization—washerwomen and masked wrestlers, porn stars and sexiles. Rodríguez examines how visual tropes of racial and sexual deviance expose feminine subjects to misogyny and violence, attuning our gaze to how visual documentation shapes perceptions of sexual labor.

Discussion | What Makes It Italian?: The Veneto (online)


"What Makes It Italian?" is a music listening and discussion group. The group is led by Gina Crusco, who has also guided listening at Bard LLI and Riverdale Y; acted as maestro del coro for opera in Italy; instructed music at The New School; and directed Underworld Productions. The encounter will focus on: Giardino Giusti, Verona, with composers Vincenzo Ruffo and Paolo Bellasio and Valsanzibio Gardens, Padova, with composer Biagio Marini Whatever the purpose of a garden - pleasure, contemplation, practicality, or botany - it is the artifact of someone taming chaos into a recognizable form. When garden forms share underlying aesthetics with music, they make the unseen tangible. In this series, we listen to works by composers associated with Italian gardens, including Leonora d'Este, Vincenzo Galilei (father of Galileo), Francesco Veracini, and Federico Campana. Like a gardener, the composer "weeds out" unwanted sounds and manipulates others into preordained forms. We explore parallels between gardens - nature organized in space - and music - noise organized in time. Just as some garden designs, like the labyrinth, defy geography and era, so music speaks an international language. Let's listen.

Book Discussion | Among the Braves: Hope, Struggle, and Exile in the Battle for Hong Kong and the Future of Global Democracy


Through the eyes of two frontline journalists, Shibani Mahtani and Tim McLaughlin, comes a gripping narrative history of the Hong Kong pro-democracy movement centered around a cast of core activists, culminating in the 2019 mass protests and Beijing's brutal crackdown. Hong Kong was an experiment in governance. Handed back to China in 1997 after 156 years of British rule, it was meant to be a carve-out between hostile systems: a bridge between communism and capitalism, authoritarianism and liberal democracy. "One country, two systems" kept its media free, its courts independent and its protests boisterous, designed also to convince Taiwan of a peaceful solution to Beijing's desire for reunification. Yet this formulation excluded Hong Kong's own people, their future negotiated by political titans in faraway capitals. In 2019, an ill-conceived law spear-headed by a sycophantic leader pushed millions to take to the streets in one of the most enduring protest movements the world has ever seen. Xi Jinping responded with a draconian national security law that sought not only to end the demonstrations but quash the "problem" of Hong Kongers' identity and desire for freedom.

Staged Reading | New York City's Longest-Running Cold Play Reading


Naked Angels was formed in 1986 by a group of artists intent on creating a creative home for new voices. Forming a community of writers, directors, actors, producers, and designers, our founders crafted an open environment for expression, experimentation, and production. The company took its name from the John Tytell book, which referred to Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, William Burroughs and other Beats as “a generation that wanted to break out of convention and scream.” As a young group, the Naked Angels artists felt the same way; needing a place where, through the medium of theater, they could show the world a different perspective of the times. Sometimes outraged, often irreverent, occasionally absurd, and always intelligent, enthusiastic and fun, Naked Angels’ work was a spark to which audiences were quickly drawn. The Space, as their theater on 17th Street was known, soon became a vital, thriving crossroads where talented theater artists met and collaborated: the destination of choice for those seeking a truly celebratory theatrical experience.
