Lecture | Generative AI: Transformation or Hype? (online)


The release of Chat-GPT on November 20, 2022 led many, including a number of Big Tech CEOs and Wall Street, to herald the transformative potential of Generative AI for the global economy. But just as many argue that it is hype and contributing to a Big Tech Bubble. As Charlie Munger of Berkshire Hathaway has quipped, "I think old-fashioned intelligence works pretty well." To address these issues, this event will feature a lecture by Chaired Professor Dr. Markus Leippold of the Department of Banking and Finance at the University Zurich and Visiting Researcher at Google Research. He has been at the forefront of using Generative AI to investigate a number of important issues in financial markets, such as stock market sentiment and climate change. He will bring both this academic research and practitioner expertise to bear on these pressing questions.

Book Discussion | Designing the Forest and Other Mass Timber Futures: Wood and Climate Change (in-person and online)


An era of renewable energy and materials is urgently needed. What role should mass timber, with its potential to replace concrete and steel, play in ensuring the planet's survival? Retracing wood's passage from stewarded seed in forest soil, to harvested biomass, to laminated walls in a living room, through to its disassembly, Lindsey Wikstrom's research pauses at each step in the supply chain of mass timber to consider the labor and economies involved, looking closely at the way wood is grown, sourced, and transported, and its impacts on the biodiversity of the forest and the health of our ecosystems. Along the way, common assumptions about mass timber are debunked, including its fire performance, its strength, and its role in carbon sequestration. Having identified contemporary technical, cultural, and spiritual gaps preventing the transition towards a fully timber built environment, she outlines how we might move forward.

Lecture | War in Ukraine and the Violations of Academic Freedom


War is always a source of widespread human rights violations. Since academic rights and freedoms are linked to human rights, the widespread violation of human rights inevitably leads to a breach of academic freedom. At the same time, the atrocities of the war affected academics, students, and academic institutions. Annexation or occupation of Ukrainian territories leads to a breach of the intellectual autonomy of educational institutions, forcibly restructuring them under the national system of the occupying country. Also, a separate issue in academic freedom is the pressure on Russian academia and direct repression against those trying to either resist or at least respond to this pressure. Finally, the scholars in exile’ academic freedom is also under dispute because of sanctions against Russian citizens in general. Speaker Dmitry Dubrovskiy is Research Fellow at the Center for Independent Social Research, St. Petersburg, Russia.

Performance | Blinking Intermittence of Constraint: Performance, Talks, Readings


The event brings together presentations by Juf (Beatriz Ortega Botas and Leto Ybarra), Amber Jamilla Musser, and Malik Nashad Sharpe that explore the relationships between movement and constriction by modeling ways of mobilizing sonic, bodily, and textual remarks within wider narratives on systems of coercion. Through talks, readings, and performances, the presentations reflect on the negotiation between minor and excessive modes of expression that manifest as different performance tactics and conceptualisms that are capable of operating at different scales. By way of these disparate operations, the event considers a fundamental relationship between affectation and constricted forms of movement and it further delves into the ways in which this interplay is produced by the tensions between the regulatory functions of the present and the impact of the aesthetic experimentation of movement for counterpublics. Through such incisions, we will also examine the dynamics between boundlessness and presentness, and between scenes of minimalism and maximalism that are elaborated in their investigations.

Screening | The ABCs of Book Banning (2023): documentary (In Person AND Online)


Join producer and director Sheila Nevins for a screening of her new documentary short that gives voice to those most impacted by today’s waves of book banning: kids. Last year the United States saw the highest number of attempted book bans since the American Library Association started keeping records more than 20 years ago. Preliminary ALA data for 2023 shows we are once again on track for a record number of censorship attempts. The majority of the banned or challenged books are for young people and feature LGBTQ+ voices and people of color. Produced and directed by Sheila Nevins, The ABCs of Book Banning, from MTV Documentary Films, weaves together a lyrical montage of young readers and authors sharing their reactions to the books that many are attempting to ban in libraries and schools. The voices of those most impacted by those actions inspire hope for the future through their profound insights and inquisitive minds. After a screening of the documentary, Nevins will join former NJ Attorney General Peter C. Harvey, Marlon Bundo author Jill Twiss, and others for a post-screening discussion.

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.
