Tour | Tour of Gracie Mansion, Home of New York's Mayors


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.” This tour repeats every Monday.

Author Reading | The War Within: Diaries from the Siege of Leningrad


In September 1941, about two months after the Nazis invaded the Soviet Union, German and Finnish troops encircled Leningrad. Cut off from the rest of Russia, the city remained blockaded for 872 days at a cost of almost a million civilian lives, making it one of the longest and deadliest sieges in modern history. Alexis Peri chronicles the Leningrad blockade from the perspective of those who endured the unendurable. Based on 125 unpublished diaries written by individuals from all walks of Soviet life, Peri tells the harrowing story of how Leningraders struggled to make sense of a world collapsing around them.

Author Reading | Beginning to End Hunger: Food and Environment in Belo Horizonte, Brazil and Beyond


M. Jahi Chappell’s new book presents the story of Belo Horizonte, home to one of the world’s most successful city food security programs. Since 1993, malnutrition in Belo Horizonte has declined dramatically, allowing it to serve as an inspiration for Brazil’s widely-praised Zero Hunger programs. Going beyond merely an in-depth case study, Beginning to End Hunger shows the importance of holistic approaches to food security, offers ideas on how to design successful policies to end hunger, and lays out strategies for how to make policy change happen towards ending hunger, everywhere.

Author Reading | A Misunderstood Friendship: Mao Zedong, Kim Il-sung, and Sino-North Korean Relations


The new book from Zhihua Shen and Yafeng Xia notes that China is widely known as North Korea's only ally on the world stage. Historically, both countries have advertised the relationship as being one of special closeness, based on shared political ideals and regional goals. Yet, as China has risen in global standing, its current position in relation to North Korea seems to be changing into a reluctant one, affected by global perceptions of North Korea, calls for Chinese global and regional leadership, and increased economic and political connections between China and other world powers like the United States.

Discussion | Risky Business: Press Freedom in Latin America


Journalists in Latin America face one of the most challenging years in recent history. 2018 will see three influential general elections in Brazil, Colombia, and Mexico, as well as a contested electoral process in Venezuela that took place in May. It's a tough moment to be a reporter covering politics in the region amid growing concerns about censorship, anti-press rhetoric from all sides of the political spectrum, online harassment translating into real-life violence, rising public distrust in traditional media outlets, and polarized audiences who increasingly rely on social media platforms like WhatsApp to stay informed. At the same time, this difficult reality has inspired innovative grassroots projects led by investigative journalists determined to fight for an independent press and dig into vital topics like human rights and corruption. Young Professionals of the Americas and the Committee to Protect Journalists take part in a conversation about how reporters are covering the 2018 elections in Latin America, the rising threats to press freedom across the region, and how journalists and citizens are rising to these challenges and innovating ways to keep each other informed in this critical moment. Speakers: Carlos Martínez de la Serna, CPJ's Program Director Laura Bonilla, Former Brazil Bureau Chief, AFP Robert Valencia, Deputy World Editor, Newsweek Adriana La Rotta, Senior Director, Americas Society/Council of the Americas (moderator)

Lecture | Aesthetics Through the Penal Hole


The talk will focus on artmaking and aesthetic practices of incarcerated people held in solitary confinement and other types of isolation units. To make art in solitary confinement is to deliberately engage the sensory deprivation that occurs in isolation cells as a mode of assault. With solitary confinement, the carceral state attempts a totalizing control over the bodies and minds of imprisoned people, largely through structuring their sensory experiences with excruciating detail and calculated indifference to their suffering. How do such restrictive mobility, sensory control, and lack of human contact impact the aesthetic experiences and practices of prisoners in solitary confinement? Speaker Nicole Fleetwood is a professor in the Department of American Studies at Rutgers University, New Brunswick.

Book Discussion | A Certain Plume: The Imagination of Belgian Poet Henri Michaux


Richard Sieburth and Pierre Joris discuss Sieburth‘s new translation of Henri Michaux’s A Certain Plume. The figure of Plume preoccupied the great Belgian poet Henri Michaux throughout his career. Plume, meaning feather or pen, is a character who drifts from one thing to another, losing shape, taking new forms, at perpetual risk from reality. He is a personification of the imagination as subject to innumerable pratfalls and disgraces, and yet indestructible for all that.
