Author Reading | The Broadcast 41: Women and the Anti-Communist Blacklist


At the dawn of the Cold War era, forty-one women working in American radio and television were placed on a media blacklist and forced from their industry. The ostensible reason: so-called Communist influence. But in truth these women were, by nature of their diversity and ambition, a threat to the traditional portrayal of the American family on the airwaves. Through original archival research and access to FBI blacklist documents, The Broadcast 41 details the blacklisted women’s attempts in the 1930s and 1940s to depict America as diverse, complicated, and inclusive. With author Carol Stabile.

Lecture | Writing History from a Crime: The Violette Nozière Case


In the summer of 1933, in Paris, an 18-year old woman poisoned her parents and the crime became a great cause célèbre of the interwar era. This talk will present a new interpretation of a famous French patricide and further explore the writing of history from a judicial case: the social imaginary and its mechanisms as revealed through micro-history. Speaker Anne-Emmanuelle Demartini is Professor of History at University of Paris 13 and the author of Violette Nozière, la fleur du mal: Une histoire des années trente (2017). Talk in French with English translation.

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
