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 11 mayors, beginning first with Mayor Fiorello H. La Guardia in 1942.

Lecture | To Stop and to See. The Problem of Abdication in King Lear and Succession


The creators of the TV drama Succession have been vocal about their debt to Shakespeare, feeding some of his most recognizable citations into the screenplay. Focusing only on the resuscitation of King Lear, this talk, in turn, offers a textual triangulation by including Stanley Cavell’s idiosyncratic reading of this tragedy in the conversation. The connection this opens between seriality and tragedy revolves around the repetition compulsion of shaming and the inability to acknowledge the fragility of power, and as such asks what it would take to avoid the tragic demise of a family. Speaker Elisabeth Bronfen is Professor of English and American Studies at the University of Zurich.

Discussion | Beyond the Flat: Performance and Representation (online)


With the advent of the selfie and contemporary discussions around representation, there is a growing sense of the limits and possibility of a portrait. Circulated images can raise the profile of an individual, capture the pulse of the moment, yet can also broadcast unhelpful and unexamined narratives. For the last year artists Zachary Fabri and Samantha Box have been in discussion with these ideas. Along the way, Box was commissioned to take a portrait of Fabri, who responded to the portrait through a live performance at the Weeksville Heritage Center. Join Fabri and Box as they talk about their process, and expand the proverbial frame of portraiture to consider the lifeforce of an image, the sitter, the viewer, and the context of making a picture.

Talk | It Takes a Village: Unsung Women and Their Contributions to Silent Film (online)


In the first two decades of the 20th century, the nascent silent film industry offered women numerous opportunities to make a significant impact in the field. Mostly marginalized and forgotten over time, these women contributed heavily to early Hollywood filmmaking, doing everything from editing to designing, producing to directing. While some like Alice Guy-Blaché, Lois Weber, and Mary Pickford are well known by cinema buffs, many unsung pioneers like Clare West, Elsa Lopez, and Marion Fairfax still live in obscurity. This lecture will acknowledge these many women’s talents and provide the recognition they deserve. Film historian and writer Mary Mallory is the author of four books and a blogger on Los Angeles and early film history. She has contributed to the Women Film Pioneers Project, the San Francisco Silent Film Festival, and American History magazine. She has lectured at the Niles Essanay Silent Film Museum, Hollywood Heritage Museum, and Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at UCLA, and she currently serves on Hollywood Heritage’s Board of Directors.

Book Discussion | Nobel Laureate Abdulrazak Gurnah Talks About his Novel Afterlives (in-person and online)


Abdulrazak Gurnah, winner of the 2021 Nobel Prize in Literature, discusses his latest novel, Afterlives, a sweeping saga of displacement, loss, and love set in early 20th-century East Africa. The Zanzibari-born, British-based writer Abdulrazak Gurnah was awarded the most recent Nobel Prize in Literature for his "uncompromising and compassionate penetration of the effects of colonialism and the fate of the refugee in the gulf between cultures and continents." Those powers are on full display in his most recent novel, Afterlives, an intimate account of characters' fates and fortunes as they grapple with brutal German colonial rule in early 20th-century East Africa. Filled in equal measure with devastation and hope, Afterlives lays bare an underappreciated piece of history, witnessed through the eyes of those who were forced to live it. Abdlurazak Gurnah speaks with Nadia Owusu about his new book, and his lifelong pursuit of historical reckoning.
