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.

Lecture | Wanted! Crime, Punishment, and the State in Habsburg Central Europe, c. 1750-1820


This talk with Dr. Stephan Sander-Faes features the more or less criminal deeds of individuals in the Austrian monarchy around the turn of the nineteenth century. Continuity and change, widely understood, as well as an increasingly activist central government were the hallmarks of the Josephi(ni)st state during an era characterised by the French Revolution (1789), the ensuing Napoleonic wars, the end of the Holy Roman Empire (1806), and the incipient industrialization. Dr. Sander-Faes will investigate a largely overlooked source type: wanted notes from Lower Austria during these momentuous decades. In looking at the communication, circulation, and modification of the relevant media, he will also touch upon the construction of ‘the criminal’, what he or she looked like, and how state officials described these offenders. Analysis of these (written) wanted notes further enables us to consider three additional aspects: the diffusion of body knowledge among a mostly illiterate peasantry, which highlights how judicial-bureaucratic sources may be used to analyze shifts in media use, and, finally, allows for insights into the material culture of the rural underclasses.

Lecture | Westworld’s Shakespeare: A Case for Serial Reading


A talk by Professor Elisabeth Bronfen. Westworld, a postmodern splice between artificial intelligence fantasy and the classic Western, quotes no text more often than Shakespeare’s plays. This lecture explores how the serial return of these citations reflects on the seriality of this prestige television show, itself conceived as a complex narrative loop. At the same time, this lecture looks at how rereading Shakespeare’s plays through the lens of this subsequent recycling might change our understanding of these plays.

Discussion | Climate Change and Clean Cookstoves: Lessons and Opportunities in Implementing the Sustainable Development Goals


In 2018, for nearly 3 billion people each day, cooking is conducted on open fires or rudimentary cookstoves that are fueled by coal or unsustainable wood. At a time when pressure to take climate action is increasing, supporting efficient cookstoves climate protection projects is ranked as one of the most efficient solutions to stabilize our climate and make a positive impact on the world. In addition to the climate benefits associated with their use, clean cookstoves and fuels support vulnerable communities around the world in ways that can be life-changing: empowering women and girls, providing new local jobs, improving health, and protecting biodiversity. This panel discussion will present best practices developed to date and then launch into thoughtful discussion around other strategies and tactics that might help businesses, foundations, and other non-profit organizations create the most value in their strategy to implement the Sustainable Development Goals. In addition, speakers will also explore the whole range of benefits awaiting those taking decisive action: boosts in trust, quality of stakeholder relationships, and newly-created social value along the value chain.
