Conference | The Future of the Left in the Americas


Across Latin America, the “pink tide,” which saw a range of left governments come to power over the last two decades, is in retreat. At the same time, new, left-wing electoral and social movements have emerged in many countries in Latin America as well as the United States. It is a critical time to reconsider what limitations and accomplishments left governments and movements across the region have had in recent years, and how they can build on these lessons in the pivotal years ahead.  Join Dissent magazine for two days of discussion with scholars, activists, and journalists from across the Americas about the challenges and opportunities for left politics in the region today.

Lecture | When Jews Became Citizens: A History of Emancipation, 1550-2000


This lecture will analyze how Jews became citizens in the modern world. It focuses on the political and legal process of gaining and retaining, losing and recovering rights (Europe, America, Israel, North Africa, and the Middle East). Emancipation was not a one-time, linear event that commenced with the Enlightenment or French Revolution and culminated with the acquisition of rights in Central Europe (1867-1871) or Russia (1917). Rather, it began with the attainment of extensive privileges in corporate society and continues to the present day. Emancipation was inherently ambiguous, consisting of deflections and reversals, defeats and successes, triumphs and tragedies. It belongs to the general development of citizenship and especially the problematic inclusion of dissenting religions and national minorities. Emancipation is modern Jewish history’s principal and interminable event. The colossal events of the mid-twentieth century, the Holocaust and the State of Israel’s establishment, have overshadowed emancipation. They were, however, reactions to it. The restriction or abrogation of rights were the first step toward the murder of Europe’s Jews. The post-war restoration of citizenship included rights, property and reparations. Jewish nationalism presumed emancipation’s failure. The State of Israel has struggled from its foundation to institute equality among its heterogeneous citizens.   Speaker David Sorkin is with Yale University.

Lecture | Black Girls and Their Nineteenth-Century Autograph Albums


Scholars such as Erica Armstrong Dunbar, Ellen Gruber Garvey, and Jasmine Nichole Cobb explore how nineteenth-century scrapbooks and friendship albums circulated among free black women in the North to showcase their middle class status and close networks. However, little is known about how black girls participated in this sentimental practice. Nazera Wright of the University of Kentucky argues that histories of black girlhood are often “buried” in literary genres less likely to be studied. Recovering these histories involves using methodological practices that move beyond the bound book. To locate evidence of their lives, Wright explores the often uncatalogued signatures and inscriptions written in nineteenth-century black girls’ autograph albums to reveal the wide-ranging impact that early friendships, alliances and associations had on black girls’ intellectual and political development.

Forum | If Art Is Politics


A conversation with curators, artists and scholars. Hear artist, curator and scholar Jolene Rickard deliver a keynote on art as political practice.These interdisciplinary explorations chart the investigations and proposed affinities for the two-year focus, launching the Vera List Center’s distinct curricular investigations that will be developed throughout the coming year. “If Art Is Politics” considers how, at this moment of political reckoning with democratic institutions and alternatives to traditional party politics, art operates as a political practice. Can art be politically viable, and how does it acquire political agency? How does art shift and affect the sites, practices and participants of political processes in ways that traditional forms of political involvement might not? Does art allow for the embrace of a set of shared values that transcend party politics?

Opera | The Mile-Long Opera: 1000 singers perform


1000 singers from across New York will come together for the first-ever performances of The Mile-Long Opera: a biography of 7 o'clock. A sweeping choral work will immerse audiences in the personal stories of hundreds of New Yorkers about life in this rapidly changing city. The conversations, centered on the meaning of 7:00 pm, reveal a vast spectrum of feelings and perspectives—and, by extension, represent the diverse character of the city’s inhabitants and their individual experiences. Conceived by composer David Lang. "David Lang has established himself as a master of powerful, large-scale public music through ambitious projects like “the public domain,” for 1,000 voices at Lincoln Center, and “symphony for a broken orchestra,” for hundreds of broken school instruments in Philadelphia." - New York Times

Concert | Carnegie Hall Citywide: Cuban batá drum coupled with an African rhythm

Besides leading his own group, Martinez has played with Paquito D’Rivera, Eddie Palmieri, Edie Brickell, and Sting. The Pedrito Martinez Group: Pedrito Martinez, percussion and lead vocals Isaac Delgado, Jr., keyboard and vocals Sebastian Natal, electric bass and vocals Jhair Sala, Cowbell, percussion and vocals

Performance | Antigone in Ferguson: Sophocles and Choral Music


Antigone in Ferguson was conceived in the wake of Michael Brown’s death in 2014, through a collaboration between Theater of War Productions and community members from Ferguson, Missouri. Translated and directed by Bryan Doerries and composed by Phil Woodmore, the project fuses a dramatic reading by leading actors of excerpts from Sophocles’s Greek tragedy with live choral music performed by a choir of activists, police officers, youth, and concerned citizens from Ferguson and New York City. The performance is the catalyst for panel and audience-driven discussions on race and social justice, the core component of the event. This multifaceted production will offer a glimpse not only into the effects of the tragedy in Brown’s local community, but also the trauma of police violence and racial injustice in communities of color in New York and across the nation. Local stakeholders and community leaders will participate as panelists, assisting in opening up dialogues with audiences. These guided discussions, which aim to promote healing and bridge the growing divide between law enforcement and local communities, will focus on the impact of racialized violence against communities of color, and the legacies of the tragic deaths of Michael Brown, as well as Eric Garner, Amadou Diallo, Sean Bell, Saheed Vassell, and numerous other victims. The presentation will feature a rotating roster of acclaimed actors, including Samira Wiley (The Handmaid’s Tale), who will reprise the role she portrayed in the premiere of Antigone in Ferguson presented on the stage of Michael Brown’s high school in Ferguson in 2016. Other cast members include: Paul Giamatti (Billions), Tamara Tunie (Law & Order: SVU), David Strathairn (Good Night, and Good Luck), Adepero Oduye (12 Years a Slave), Frankie Faison (The Wire) and Kathryn Erbe (Law & Order: Criminal Intent). Each week will feature a different group of actors. Tuesdays through Saturdays, September 13-October 13, 2018.

Concert | Carnegie Hall Citywide: mix of jazz, blues and folk music


Hazmat Modine’s music tips its hat to New Orleans–style honky-tonk with dashes of klezmer and gritty jug-band blues tossed in for good measure. Propelled by the earthy vocals and scorching harmonica of band founder Wade Schuman, the group’s unique sound is buoyed by tuba, drums, guitar, and banjo, as well as an Armenian double-reed instrument called the duduk. For nearly a decade, the band has toured in more than 40 countries and performed with an eclectic assortment of musicians, from Kronos Quartet to Natalie Merchant. Performers: Wade Schuman, vocal harmonica, guitar, zamponia, and penny whistle Erik della Penna, vocals, guitar, and banjo Steve Elson, saxophone, clarinet, flute, and duduk Pam Fleming, trumpet Joe Daley, tuba Reut Regev, trombone Charlie Burnham, fiddle.
