Although world famous, Harlem may be New York's best kept secret with some of the city's best architecture, food, music and people. Harlem's history is also one of the city's most dramatic, having gone through many ethnic, cultural and socioeconomic changes over the past roughly 400 years, which have resulted in a diverse array of places of worship, theaters, homes and eating establishments.

In 1799, a prosperous New York merchant named Archibald Gracie built a country house overlooking a bend in the East River, five miles north of the then-New York City limits. Little did he know that, more than 200 years later, his home would be serving as the official residence of the First Family of New York City - a place where history is made, not merely recorded. As a historic house museum run by the Parks Department, sitting on 11 acres of grounds now known as Carl Schurz Park, Gracie Mansion has served as the home of 10 mayors, beginning first with Mayor Fiorello H. La Guardia in 1942. Today, Gracie Mansion is occupied by the de Blasio family, which has opened its doors in the spirit of the administration's motto: one city, rising together. In keeping with that theme, Mayor de Blasio and First Lady Chirlane McCray have introduced a new art installation, titled “Windows on the City: Looking Out at Gracie’s New York.” Tours take place every Tuesday at 10am, 11am, 2pm, and 3pm until Dec. 12, 2017.

Lecture |
Over the last decade, the literature on populism has flourished as it has sought to account for the causes, definitions, and consequences of the significant support and prolonged political success of populist leaders and parties. However, the political and emotional reception of populist performance by populist constituencies is still an under-researched subject. Based on a qualitative study that was conducted in Istanbul between October and December 2016, this talk will focus on how performative populist political style is received, reproduced, and reflected in the emotional and political frameworks of the populist constituencies. Speaker: Evren Balta

In 2016, a Poverty Working Group was assembled to examine New York State’s neglect and abandonment of poor people, people of color, and people with disabilities. The group asks how can we deepen our understanding of and resistance to the ways that neoliberal states and social systems create targeted communities who live their lives under the constant threat of surveillance, control, and even mortal danger. In this panel, scholars, and activists who work on issues of housing and homelessness in New York City imagine how we can take an abolitionist approach to resistance and how we can begin to build social systems that offer safety and equal resources to all. Participants include Craig Willse, author of The Value of Homelessness: Managing Surplus Life in the United States.

City life in North Africa during the Roman period is often portrayed as a monolithic image of gleaming marble temples and elites, of unrivalled urban wealth and unquestionable success. Yet amongst these developments the neighborhoods of North Africa also saw periods of disuse, small- and large-scale regeneration projects, and a broad shift from mixed-use to specialized districts. This talk examines these changes using the modern concept of gentrification. By tracing examples of the displacement of urban production and the consolidation of property into larger and more elite residences, we can better understand both the nature of Roman urban renewal and the impact of these changes on local populations. Lecturer J. Andrew Dufton is a Visiting Assistant Professor. Reception to follow.

In 2011, Adarsh Alphons, an immigrant here on a work visa with a mountain of student loans, decided to do everything he wasn't supposed to do: teach art classes to youth full-time for no pay. Starting with a borrowed office space in Harlem, he seized on his entrepreneurial spirit and capitalized on the moment's zeitgeist—the rise of the sharing economy—to create ProjectArt, a nonprofit art organization that has achieved national scale and acclaim by using underutilized spaces in public libraries for public school art education and artists’ studios.

Like his contemporary John F. Kennedy, Willy Brandt represents an iconic figure, the archetype of political modernity. In his role as the first Social Democratic chancellor of West Germany between 1969 and 1974, Brandt was at the forefront of some of Germany's most definitive and controversial decisions. He famously fell to his knees in recognition of the atrocities committed by his countrymen in the Warsaw Ghetto, and received the Nobel Peace Prize for his policy of reconciliation. As the Chair of the “Brandt Commission” (Independent Commission on International Development Issues) in the early 80s, he drew attention to the growing need for a global perspective and international solidarity. Hélène Miard-Delacroix’s recently published biography provides new perspectives on one of the leading statesmen of the twentieth century.

Ussama Makdisi challenges two narratives that often dominate the story of diversity in the Middle East. The first stresses a continuous history of sectarian strife between allegedly antagonistic religious communities; the second idealizes coexistence and communal harmony between Muslims and non-Muslims. Rather than taking sectarianism or coexistence for granted—or assuming them to be age-old features of the Middle East—Makdisi historicizes both notions and emphasizes how the struggle to define the contours of modern Middle Eastern society has been multifaceted and contradictory. Makdisi is a professor of history and Arab- American Educational Foundation Chair of Arab Studies at Rice University, and the author of Faith Misplaced: The Broken Promise of U.S.-Arab Relations, 1820-2001.

Critics have drawn parallels between Gordon’s work and the paintings of artists such as Matisse and Cézanne, yet Gordon relies on the camera to ground his art.

In the original vision of the internet, anyone could have a voice. Two decades later, a few technology companies (Facebook, Alphabet, Twitter) are setting and enforcing rules governing most of what people say online, trying to balance free expression with civic responsibility while making money. A growing chorus of critics argue that the rise of these Silicon Valley gatekeepers is at odds with a democratic society. Meanwhile, online hate has spilled out into national politics, traditional media, and the streets. Sort through how these platforms set policies, rely on algorithms, and outsource to armies of moderators -- and ask whether they are getting it right. Moderated by Adrian Chen, staff writer at The New Yorker, where he covers internet culture and technology With: - Danah Boyd, founder and president of Data and Society, a research institute focused on understanding the role of data-driven technologies in society. - Kate Klonick, PhD student at Yale Law School, where she is also a Resident Fellow at the Information Society Project. - Gregor Hochmuth, an artist and engineer based in New York. In 2011, he joined Instagram as one of the company's first engineers. He's since co-founded Dreams, a new TV network based in New York.

Artistic research — the idea that artistic and embodied practices not only draw upon but also generate knowledge — is increasingly common globally, but remains marginal in the United States. What is at stake in the claim that artistic and embodied practice can be research? What possibilities might be opened by such a claim and what legitimate resistances exist? This panel of scholar-practitioners and artist-researchers will discuss the relationships between practice and research in their own work, how they navigate diverse epistemologies across academic and artistic institutions, and what possible futures they envision.
