Discussion |
Chicago tore down its high-rises, but what did the city do to build up the people who lived there? The New York City Housing Authority has done better than most in providing decent, affordable homes, yet many residents live in deep poverty. This is a discussion about public housing and the needs of resident families and children. Panelists will discuss the structural challenges of inequality and racial segregation that continue to isolate public housing communities and efforts to connect residents to opportunity.  SPEAKERS:  - Shola Olatoye, Chair and CEO, New York City Housing Authority - Susan J. Popkin, Senior Fellow and Director of the Program on Neighborhoods and Youth Development, The Urban Institute and author of No Simple Solutions: Transforming Public Housing in Chicago - Axia Torres, President, Alfred E. Smith Resident Association - Alex Schwartz, Professor - Talib Hudson, PhD student - David Garza, Executive Director, Henry Street Settlement

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.

Symposium |
The Parthenon is the most sculpturally rich building to survive from antiquity, and the frieze is the best-preserved section of its original adornment. Newly installed in the Graduate Center’s lobby and library is a remarkably early and well-conserved set of British Museum casts on long-term loan from CUNY’s City College that had originally been used to teach art and art history there for more than 100 years.   This day-long symposium brings together a distinguished lineup of art historians, curators, and artists to examine their historical and contemporary context. Beginning with the original sculptural scheme of the Parthenon and its legacy, and turning towards the international distribution and educational role of the plaster cast, the symposium will conclude with a discussion of issues surrounding the production and reception of public works of sculpture.

In 1929 Stalin launched his policy of agricultural collectivization—in effect a second Russian revolution—which forced millions of peasants off their land and onto collective farms. The result was a catastrophic famine, the most lethal in European history. At least five million people died between 1931 and 1933 in the USSR. But instead of sending relief the Soviet state made use of the catastrophe to rid itself of a political problem. Anne Applebaum argues that more than three million of those dead were Ukrainians who perished not because they were accidental victims of a bad policy but because the state deliberately set out to kill them.

For fifty years the Indonesian state denied responsibility for the 1965-66 killings in Indonesia, which saw up to one million unarmed civilians murdered during the height of the Cold War. It is now possible to prove military agency behind the killings. This talk will present a case for why the 1965-66 killings can be understood as a case of genocide. Dr. Jess Melvin’s book, The Army and the Indonesian Genocide: Mechanics of Mass Murder, will be published in December by Routledge. Melvin is a Rice Faculty Fellow in Southeast Asia Studies and Postdoctoral Associate in Genocide Studies at Yale University.

Non-profit work comes from the heart. It is something you are not going to be making large amounts of money from; what you are going to make (potentially) is an impact. It is a passion, an adventure, a way to give back and do good. No one told Bruce Byers how to do this, he just heard that he could join a mission and said, “OK, I am in!” It has been, not only an eye-opener, but also a wonderful ride to some of the great places on the earth. But within all that, Bruce never stops thinking about the next child he can help through his images. In this presentation Byers will discuss how he documents for non-profits: What it takes money-wise, equipment-wise, and the personal toll it can take as well. Bruce will give you the run down as to how he got involved and why, he will go over the ways he raises the funds he needs to make it possible to do this work, the equipment required, and how to be prepared for anything while being at the top of your game. He will also discuss doing both stills and video, the books he has created, and what he carries to get the job done. If have the desire to document for a non-profit, to use your photography skills to make a difference in the world (and Bruce thinks everyone should because it will change your life and your photography), this talk will be for you.

After his death, writer Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) became a global icon of modern literature and a pop culture brand. Best known for his Gothic horror tales and narrative poem “The Raven,” Poe’s stories are the basis of countless films and TV episodes, and have inspired even more, as has his name and image. At least four American cities claim this literary legend as their own – Baltimore, Richmond, Philadelphia and New York: an NFL football team is named after one of his poems, and his image appears on everything from the Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album cover to lunchboxes, bobbleheads and socks. Creating the detective fiction genre with “The Murders in the Rue Morgue” (1841), Poe wrote over 100 short stories and poems altogether, beginning with Tamerlane and Other Poems (1827), his first published work. Written and directed by Eric Stange (The War That Made America, American Experience: Murder at Harvard), the new documentary American Masters – Edgar Allan Poe: Buried Alive draws on the rich palette of Poe’s evocative imagery and sharply drawn plots to tell the real story of the notorious author.

Kevin Mumford explores how activists, performers, and writers rebutted negative stereotypes and refused sexual objectification. Examining the lives of both famous and little-known black gay activists—from James Baldwin and Bayard Rustin to Joseph Beam and Brother Grant-Michael Fitzgerald—Mumford analyzes the ways in which movements for social change both inspired and marginalized black gay men. Drawing on an extensive archive of newspapers, pornography, and film, as well as government documents, organizational records, and personal papers, Mumford sheds new light on four volatile decades in the protracted battle of black gay men for affirmation and empowerment in the face of pervasive racism and homophobia.

During the last 60 years, no cookbook editor has influenced American culinary life more than did Judith Jones (1924-2017). In her 57 years at Alfred A. Knopf, she launched the careers of many major food writers, beginning with Julia Child, Marcella Hazan, and Madhur Jaffrey. Almost 50 years ago she introduced the British scholar-writer Claudia Roden to American audiences. In 1976 she inaugurated an era of serious investigation into African American cooking with Edna Lewis's The Taste of Country Cooking. She created the ambitious series Knopf Cooks American, which surveyed traditions ranging from Southern baking (Bill Neal's Biscuits, Spoonbread, and Sweet Potato Pie) to the Italian-American kitchens of Rhode Island (Nancy Verde Barr's We Called It Macaroni). She made Lidia Bastianich a household name, and gave cooks an enlarged understanding of American and worldwide Jewish cuisine through her many editor-writer partnerships with Joan Nathan. Panelists include Joan Nathan, author of King Solomon's Table: A Culinary Exploration of Jewish Cooking from Around the World (2017); Ray Sokolov, author of Steal the Menu: A Memoir of Forty Years in Food (2013); Laura Shapiro, author of What She Ate: Six Remarkable Women and the Food That Tells Their Stories (2017); Anne Mendelson, author of Milk: The Surprising Story of Milk Through the Ages (2008); Madhur Jaffrey, author of Vegetarian India: A Journey Through the Best of Indian Home Cooking (2015); and Bronwyn Dunne, Judith Jones's step-daughter. Moderated by Food Studies faculty member Andrew F. Smith.

To mark the publication of Deconstructing the High Line: Postindustrial Urbanism and the Rise of the Elevated Park, this is a panel discussion with the book’s co-editors, cultural theorist Christoph Lindner (University of Oregon) and urban geographer Brian Rosa (Queens College/CUNY Graduate Center), along with sociologist Julia Rothenberg (Queensborough Community College). Exploring the after-effects of the High Line—both in New York City and beyond—these three urbanists will lead a discussion on the consequences, implications, reverberations, and distortions implicated in the contemporary fascination with infrastructural re-use. Exploring questions about the cultural, social, economic, and physical transformations that surround the High Line and other similar projects, the panelists will dissect the “High Line Effect.” Key themes will be the relationship between parks creation and gentrification, infrastructural reuse, the aestheticization of post-industrial landscapes, and the explosion of projects mimicking the High Line in cities throughout the world.

Among the greats of 20th-century horror and fantasy, few names stand above Richard Matheson. Though known by many for novels like I Am Legend and his sixteen Twilight Zone episodes, Matheson truly shines in his chilling, masterful short stories. Since his first story appeared in 1950, virtually every major writer of science fiction, horror, and fantasy has fallen under his influence, including Stephen King, Neil Gaiman, Peter Straub, and Joe Hill.

How will climate change affect our lives? Where will its impacts be most deeply felt? Are we doing enough to protect ourselves from the coming chaos? In Extreme Cities, Ashley Dawson argues that cities are ground zero for climate change, contributing the lion’s share of carbon to the atmosphere, while also lying on the frontlines of rising sea levels.
