It's where the first US Congress assembled and produced the Bill of Rights and where President George Washington took his first oath of office. It's here where the world's most important stock exchange and one of the most famous bridges stand. And it is here where an unspeakable tragedy took place and where a rebirth is underway.

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.

Deirdre Bair was a newly minted Ph.D. who thought she was going to write a critical study of Samuel Beckett.

Her talk will describe the privilege (and the trials and tribulations) of working with two living subjects. It will include her coming of age as a scholar and feminist, and why now is the proper time to tell these stories.

Discussion |
The Sustainable Development Goals were adopted two years ago, making it an opportune time for a first stocktaking. The SDGs make the central promise to Leave No One Behind and include a dedicated goal to reduce inequalities. Human rights advocates have put great hopes in the SDGs as an instrument for transformative change. But do they bring about the much-needed paradigm shift? Or were the extensive consultations and negotiations much ado about nothing? At this event, they will launch a special issue of the International Journal of Human Rights on the “Sustainable Development Goals and Human Rights: A Critical Early Review” co-edited by Inga Winkler and Carmel Williams. Speakers will focus on monitoring and policies for the way forward with a focus on invisible and marginalized population groups. less

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 When interstate truck traffic made the railway outdated, it fell into ruin, only to be regenerated as a park.

Lecture |
Sara Ahmed, independent scholar and feminist writer, explores how institutions are built from small acts of use. What usually happens seems to keep happening without having to be made into official policy and sometimes even despite an official policy. We learn about the institutional (as usual) from those who are trying to transform institutions. Ahmed will bring together data from her study of diversity work in universities first presented in On Being Included (2012) and developed in the middle section of Living a Feminist Life (2017) with her current research into “the uses of use” and complaint. She considers how social justice projects require making usage into a crisis.
