Discussion | Remote Care: From the 'Electronic Patient' to Self-Tracking


Practices of care and intervention—whether medical or psychological— have been rich in specialized communications between clinicians and patients and clinicians and clinicians, across many historical periods. The meanings and uses of these communications, however, have shifted with the development of new media and new technologies, which allow these communications to happen at a distance. This panel will consider technological interventions and augmentations of remote care, from the “Electronic Patient” and tele-medicine to self-tracking apps. By considering the media and technology intertwined with scenes of care, panelists will explore how changes in these kinds of communications relate to changes in the practice of care. Panelists include: Jeremy Greene, Johns Hopkins University Natasha Schull, Associate Professor of Media, Culture, and Communication Kelli Moore, Assistant Professor of Media, Culture, and Communication Hannah Zeavin, UC Berkeley Moderated by Lisa Gitelman, Professor of Media and English

This illustrated lecture by historian Victoria Johnson features her acclaimed new book, American Eden, which The Wall Street Journal calls “captivating.” When Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr met on a dueling ground in July 1804, they chose the same attending physician: David Hosack. Family doctor and friend to both Hamilton and Burr, Hosack is today a shadowy figure at the edge of a famous duel, the great achievements of his life forgotten. Hosack was the most famous American doctor of the post-Revolutionary generation and the most beloved medical professor in the United States.

Slide Lecture | One Track Mind: Drawing the Village Subway


Philip Ashforth Coppola, Ezra Bookstein, and Jeremy Workman give an illustrated talk about Coppola’s extraordinary, meticulous pen-and-ink drawings detailing the typography, terra-cotta mosaics, faiences, and tile patterns that millions of riders see every day but rarely notice. Bookstein and Workman have drawn from those sketches to create One-Track Mind: Drawing the New York Subway, giving readers what Hyperallergic has called “the most encyclopedic history of the art and architecture of the New York City subway system.”

Film | The Executioner (1963): Spanish Black-Comedy Masterpiece


This film critiques Franco-era values through a macabre farce about an undertaker who marries an executioner’s daughter and reluctantly takes over her father’s job. Influenced by Italian neorealism, this caustic film depicts what the director called “the invisible traps that society sets up for us”. A personal attack on both capital punishment and Fascist Spain, it evaded the state censors and is now regarded as one of the greatest Spanish films of all time.   Director: Luis Garcia Berlanga 92 min.                           View Larger Map   Date: Tuesday, October 9, 2018 Time: 6:30pm EDT Location: King Juan Carlos I of Spain Center Contact kjcc@nyu.edu Cost: Free Calendar: King Juan Carlos I of Spain Center

Discussion | Who Decides? The History and Future of Monument Creation in New York City


New monuments are coming to NYC. But how will they be selected? The city established a Monuments Commission last fall and announced a $10 million pledge for statues or public art honoring neglected groups, and the same amount for monuments recognizing women. In this panel, historians, art historians, and monument advocates will discuss the history of monument creation, visions for new projects, and the current pressures on city agencies to respond to public opinion. With: Michele Bogart, Professor of Art History, Stony Brook University and author of the new Sculpture in Gotham: Art and Urban Renewal In New York City Mary Anne Trasciatti, Professor of Writing Studies and Rhetoric, Hofstra University and President, Remember the "Triangle Fire Coalition" Jack Tchen, Professor of Public History and the Humanities, Rutgers University and member of the NYC Mayor’s Commission on Monuments Moderator: Todd Fine, History Doctoral Candidate, President, Washington Street Historical Society, advocate of the monument for "Little Syria"

Massimo Cusato's unique sound was formed by his early studies with percussion and drum masters from all over the globe like Changuito of Cuba, Arnaldo Vacca and master Ettore Mancini of Rome.

His sound has the flavors of early Motown, 70’s funk, traditional Tarantella, Afro-Cuban, Brazilian and Rock rhythms.

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.

Author Reading | CANCELLED***A Tokyo Romance: An Outsider Fits In***CANCELLED


THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED When Ian Buruma arrived in Tokyo in 1975, a young film student in love with Japanese theater and movies, Japan was little more in his mind than a fantasy of a faraway land. But he soon found his way to the heart of the city’s underground culture, even accepted as a member by an avant-garde Butoh group. Amid the dancers, carnival acts, and hustlers of the city’s feverish and surreal night life, he became the rare gaijin, or outsider, who is allowed in. Beautifully written, funny, and deeply touching, A Tokyo Romance is a portrait of a young writer and the city that shaped him.
