Symposium | Africa’s Opportunity for a Climate-Smart Future


This event provides an ideal opportunity to put climate action in Africa on the global agenda. Faced with a food crisis driven by conflict, covid and climate change, the global community must radically accelerate action for climate-smart agriculture. Africa has vast amounts of untapped arable land ripe for agriculture. But the continent is also at the forefront of the climate crisis, with temperatures rising faster there than anywhere else on Earth. Only by rapidly scaling climate-smart agriculture can African farmers produce enough nutritious food that supports decent livelihoods and resilient communities in ways that limit greenhouse gas emissions and reverse the degradation of nature. By doing so, the world can diversify food supply, limit acute hunger and alleviate inflationary pressures..

Discussion | Survivors about Surviving the Holocaust in Ukraine: According to Eyewitness Accounts (online)


Dr. Svitlana Telukha will discuss the Holocaust in Ukraine, with a focus on learning from oral testimonies and biographies recorded with survivors in Ukraine in 2019-2021. The interviews cover a wide variety of subjects and themes, including daily life under occupation, entrepreneurship, the struggle for life, and various strategies for surviving extreme conditions and constant mortal threats. Learn about a Jewish baby redeemed for a piece of jewelry and of how a little chicken saved the lives of two Jewish boys. How did a two-year-old girl manage to escape a firing pit and mass grave? How did changing one's appearance enable some to survive? Only by allowing personal stories and experiences to pierce the meta-narratives we build for thinking about the Shoah can we approach understanding. Dr. Svitlana Telukha holds a PhD in history. She is a lecturer at the National Technical University, "Kharkiv Polytechnic Institute."

Lecture | A Ukrainian Voice in the Russian Empire: Panteleimon Kulish's First Novel and Its Reception (online)


This presentation will examine how the prominent nineteenth-century Ukrainian writer, ethnographer, translator, historian, and national revival activist Panteleimon Kulish grappled with the thorny question of the fate of Ukraine in the Russian empire in his first novel Mikhailo Charnyshenko, or Little Russia Eighty Years Ago (1843). Nicknamed "the Ukrainian Walter Scott," Kulish attempts, in this work, to fuse the Gothic literary mode with the conventions of Walter Scottian historical fiction in order to produce a nostalgic picture of Ukrainian heroic and authentic culture on the brink of its succumbing to the homogenizing force of the Russian empire. Speaker Valeria Sobol is Professor of Slavic Languages and Literatures at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign.

Discussion | The New Chilean Politics and its Regional Implications


A conversation with Gabriel Boric Font, President of the Republic of Chile, and Maria Victoria Murillo, Director of the Institute for Latin American Studies. After a military regime interrupted Chile’s long democratic tradition, its return brought a period of steady economic growth. Despite political and economic reforms, high social inequality persisted and dissatisfaction with the political system erupted into massive protests in 2019. This triggered a process of constitutional reform and increased fragmentation of the political system. In 2021, President Boric, a representative and former student leader, was elected as Chile’s youngest president on the platform of addressing this crisis of representation.  This discussion will explore the transformation of the country’s political climate through greater government and state institutional participation of women, youth, and indigenous peoples—among other politically underrepresented groups—and the implication of a constitutional process that seeks to expand social rights and face new challenges.

Discussion | Road to COP 27: Reflections on Climate Justice Movements Disrupting Business as Usual


The upcoming 27th UNFCCC Conference Of the Parties (COP) in Egypt has been optimistically designed as a space for governments, policy makers, business, and civil society to confront the growing climate crisis. This year, Social Movements are being restricted from organizing on the “streets” to build power with local Egyptian communities not accredited to enter the COP official spaces - seriously limiting the input of civil society in the COP negotiations.  Representatives from frontline environmental justice communities will gather to;  --Reflect on the historical wins of Social Movements at the UNFCC-Conference of Parties, --Share the evolution and co-mingling of national and international policy that help and hurt BIPOC frontline communities, workers, and women most impacted as a result of the negotiations and, --CrowdSource how to creatively disrupt business as usual along with three decades of global incremental climate negotiations that have seem to run their course. . The discussion will explore the unique role of frontline delegates both inside and outside strategy in the negotiations, resistance to false solutions and organizing for more inclusive, democratic and just climate solutions beyond the Conference of Parties. This session will be part panel and part PreCOP planning session. It and is open to movement partners involved in COP as well as students, and faculty.

Lecture | Comparative Insights on How Urban Protests Shape the Urban Landscape (in-person and online)


What role do protests play in both challenging and reproducing state power? Why do protests emerge in particular locations and moments and take the form they do? Why are state coercive apparatuses deployed unevenly against protests? What are the political effects of routine protests, given their ritual character, the repetitiveness of their demands, and the fact they do not translate into political disruptions? And how do regional and global financial and security arrangements shape protests at the local level and vice versa?  Speaker Dr. Jillian Schwedler is Professor of Political Science at the City University of New York’s Hunter College and Nonresident Senior Fellow at the Crown Center at Brandeis University.

Opening Reception | Baldwin Lee: Photographing Black America


In 1983, Baldwin Lee left his home in Knoxville, Tennessee, and set off on a road trip through the American South. He did not know what his subject would be, but during the trip, he found himself drawn to photographing Black Americans at home, at work and at play, in the street and amid nature. Over the next seven years, he made numerous road trips to the South to continue his work. Nearly 40 years after Lee’s initial 2,000-mile road trip, the first solo exhibition of his work in New York will be on view.

Talk | Celebrate 70: 70 Fifth Avenue - A Storied Address (online)


Landmarked in 2021, the Educational Building at 70 Fifth Avenue is not only one of Greenwich Village’s newest designated spaces, but also one of the neighborhood’s most storied addresses. Completed in 1914, the building has been home to an extraordinary constellation of progessive advocacy organizations, from the NAACP to the ACLU. Because tenants at 70 Fifth Avenue were leaders in the fields of social justice, publishing, international cooperation, labor organizing and education, this building stood as a microcosm of the Village itself, and attracted such luminaries as W.E.B Du Bois, Roger Baldwin, Crystal Eastman and Henry Morgenthau, Sr. In this zoom event with historian Lucie Levine, celebrate the stunning history of 70 Fifth Avenue, discover the exceptional array of advocates, diplomats and publishers who worked in the building, and situate the building, the organizations which called it home, and the Villagers who walked its halls in the larger sweep of neighborhood, and national, history.

Lecture | Whose Resistance Theory? From Early Modern Tragedy to January 6 (in-person and online)


In this talk, Anna Rosensweig will discuss how recent political events have changed her intellectual and affective relationship to early modern resistance theory, a theory central to her book, Subjects of Affection: Rights of Resistance on the Early Modern French Stage (Northwestern University Press 2022). She will detail how members of the political Right in the United States— including insurrectionists, antiabortion extremists, and adherents of the QAnon conspiracy—have mobilized theories of resistance from early modern Europe to justify their opposition to state and federal law. Rather than simply dismiss these right-wing appeals to resistance theory as unscholarly and anachronistic, Prof. Rosensweig argues that we must take them seriously as an uncomfortable part of this theory’s legacy. \ Date: Thursday, September 22, 2022 Time: 6:00pm - 7:30pm EDT Location: La Maison Française, 16 Washington Mews Room: 1st Floor Contact: 212-998-8750 Contact maison.francaise@nyu.edu Cost: Free

Embodied through the life of a virtual avatar, the epic journey is hosted and reproduced in real time on a specially designed, open-access, dedicated website, and accompanies an augmented-reality presentation. To celebrate the launch of the project, artist Reynier Leyva Novo will join guest curator Olga Viso in an online conversation and project demonstration moderated by El Museo organizing curator Susanna V. Temkin. Free and open to the public, this event is held in partnership with a community of nearly 20 international cultural organizations, whose transnational locations echo the monarch’s pathway across the Americas.

Concert | Modern Jewish Sounds Concert (in-person and online)


Born in Boston, Jake Sherman learned classical piano by listening to his father play Bach every morning. If not for an intervention - stumbling upon the catalog of Weird Al Yankovic - he would have followed in his father's path or perhaps become a jazz purist. Fast forward some years and it's clear Jake has found a way to combine his appreciation of great songwriting with his piano/organ-playing prowess. He has become a go-to musician on recordings, and tours for artists including Meshell Ndegeocello, Bilal, Emily King, Blood Orange, Benny Sings, Doyle Bramhall II, Gabriel Garzon-Montano, Andrew Bird, and Nick Hakim. His most recent album, Jake Sherman Gests Sexy, is a journey through modern dating and relationships, with a point of view that is somehow both poignant and Weird Al-esque.
