Lecture | Choice or Chance? Driver-Labor and Reproductive Justice


Taxis are often perceived as vastly different from gigged driving companies like Uber and Lyft, in large part because gigged driving companies spend billions of dollars every year marketing themselves this way. In contrast, Spent Behind the Wheel (2022), co-authored by Kasturi Ray and Julietta Hua, traces the ways traditional taxis and the gigged driving sector have more commonalities than differences. Most importantly, both share the presumption of, and ground their profits in, unfettered access to drivers’ reproductive labor. Drivers, we find, work to support the social reproduction, or full life-flourishing of others, at the expense of their own life chances. However, the masculinized bodies of drivers occlude the reproductive nature of their work, and along with it, the ways that the siphoning of drivers’ reproductive capacities structures industry accumulation across the taxi and gigged sectors. This presentation deploys a reproductive justice lens, broadly understood, to understand the gendered and racial conditions of labor that structure the passenger ride-for-hire industry, whether taxi or gig.

Discussion | Forgotten, Ignored, and Distorted Histories of Romani People: Past and Present (online)


Scholars Ethel Brooks, Ioanida Costache, and László Csősz move between past and present as they plumb the history of anti-Roma racist violence, and the erasure of that history even as the violence persists. Drawing upon testimonies and documents, their presentations reveal individual, communal, and institutional obstacles to remembrance and education.

Melanie Williams, flute; David Bakamjian, cello; Rebecca Pechefsky, harpsichord While eighteenth-century aristocrats often waged wars, music created an oasis of peace. Quantz and C.P.E. Bach worked for Frederick the Great, known both for aggressive militarism and a passion for music. Franz Xaver Richter, by contrast, worked for the less bellicose Elector of Bavaria, while J.S. Bach wrote masterpieces for the music-loving Prince Leopold of Anhalt-Kothen.

Lecture | Challenging the ‘Official Story' of U.S. Migration Policy History (in-person and online)


The project starts with the official story of U.S. migration policy history as portrayed by DHS and works to challenge its historical accuracy. The presentation covers antebellum U.S. migration policy, focusing on the colonial period when mechanisms of sifting migrants were created. These policies and laws were continued through the early republic and antebellum period when states and localities retained virtually exclusive control over the freedom of movement and remain. I Professor Anna Law argues that in the antebellum period, slavery policy was politically and constitutionally inseparable from broader migration policy. She will show that unpopular groups including the foreign and domestic poor and sickly migrants, and free and enslaved Black people faced a subnational patchwork of restrictions on their freedom of movement for over a century. That long period of subnational control ended with the federalization of migration controls in 1882, marked by the federal Chinese Exclusion Act. The presentation ends with some of the contemporary political implications of one’s historical amnesia of antebellum U.S. migration policy history.

Sequoia Nagamatsu's novel is one of the most celebrated debuts of the year, a spellbinding and profoundly prescient book. From funerary skyscrapers to hotels for the dead to interstellar starships, Nagamatsu takes readers on a wildly original and compassionate journey, spanning continents, centuries, and even celestial bodies to tell a story about the resilience of the human spirit, our infinite capacity to dream, and the connective threads that tie us all together in the universe.

Talk | Finding Black Joy in the Anglo-Egyptian Sudan


Where do we find Black joy in the archive? How do we evaluate claims of interracial affection or friendship made by white imperialists? Using case studies of servants, sex, and food, Marie Grace Brown addresses these questions and more in her examination of everyday life in the Anglo-Egyptian Sudan. She argues that the search for Black joy—whether we find it or not—is a new, critical responsibility for today’s racially conscious scholars.

Discussion | Justice and the Developing Brain: Revisiting People Incarcerated as Youth


The harshness of youth justice in the United States is notorious. In some states, 16- or 17-year-old children involved in serious offenses can be tried and punished as adults. Likewise, children may be sentenced to life imprisonment without the possibility of parole and can even serve periods of their sentence in solitary confinement. Meanwhile, developmental sciences have been contributing critical knowledge about the developmental trajectories of the brain and their reflections on social behavior. Extensive neurodevelopmental research has demonstrated that a “bright-line” age for adulthood is not reflective of the variability in brain maturity. It has further highlighted that children are exceptionally vulnerable to adverse social experiences and that (re)traumatizing events (such as incarceration) can entail disruptive effects on healthy development, with negative repercussions throughout life. This discussion will explore how knowledge from neurodevelopmental sciences can drive systemic change in youth justice policy. Law, science, and justice experts will discuss how this body of evidence can support avenues for meaningful youth justice reform, including shifting the youth justice system from harsh punitiveness to education, healing, and rehabilitation.

Book Discussion | Cities and Economic Inequality in Latin America: Intra-Urban Inequality in Argentina


Lena Simet's book examines trends and determinants of economic inequality in cities in Latin America, the world’s most unequal region. It explores how the gap between the haves and the have nots manifests in every part of urban life – from housing to schooling to employment. It asks why some cities have higher inequality than others and what we can learn from these differences as we push back against inequality.

Opening Reception | Nina Chanel Abney: Framily Ties — You Win Some, You Lose Some


A solo exhibition of large-scale prints and collages by American painter Nina Chanel Abney (b. 1982, Chicago). The exhibition will center Abney’s monumental works on paper, a medium which she has developed into a pillar of her practice over the course of four years of collaborations with Pace Editions’ master printers. Beginning with relief printing processes that render Abney’s graphic forms in richly saturated oil-based inks, the artist then cuts and combines printed elements into immersive collaged compositions that use all of the myriad imagery and symbolism of her personal lexicon. The tensions between geometric figures and patterns and the vibrant interaction of colors give Abney's work their distinctive formal energy, which draws on the legacy of Henri Matisse's découpage works.

Lecture | Cultural Sovereignty and the Fight for Native American Artifact Restitution


For more than 100 years, the United States was the largest single collector of Native American artifacts and human remains. In 1990, Congress approved landmark legislation to restore those artifacts and human remains to living Native communities. What followed was a massive restitution effort, which set in motion new configurations of sovereignty, stewardship, and the rights of the dead. This talk asks why this happened, and with what consequences for a sociological theory of cultural sovereignty. Presented by Professor Fiona Rose Greenland (University of Virginia)

Discussion | Rebuilding After 9/11: How the FDNY Was Forever Changed


In the aftermath of 9/11, the FDNY faced a terrible reality: 343 active-duty members had been killed in the attacks, including much of its leadership. The department needed to rebuild from top to bottom, while caring for grieving members and 9/11 families, deploying firefighters to the World Trade Center site for the rescue and recovery operation, and providing fire protection for the city. Former FDNY Fire Commissioners Thomas Von Essen, Salvatore Cassano, and Daniel A. Nigro are joined by Brian McDonald, author of Five Floors Up, which chronicles the life of Chief William Feehan, the only person to have held every rank in the FDNY, who was killed on 9/11. They will reflect on the history of the FDNY, the experience of the department on 9/11, and how the department rebuilt.

Discussion | Saludos desde Mariúpol: Covering Ukraine for the Spanish Audience (in-person and online)


A discussion with writer Argemino Barro, moderated by Yuri Shevchuk. In the Spanish media landscape, the shadow of Russia has always loomed large over the image of Ukraine: a confusion fueled by geographical distance and historical myth-making. The Russian-Ukrainian war that began in 2014 and the current large-scale invasion have created an opportunity for Spanish journalists to get to know Ukraine, challenge stereotypes and engage in a dialogue with the readers back home. An ongoing process that nevertheless has brought some change.

Discussion | The Melancholic Renaissance: Dürer and After


A discussion of melancholy in the modern world must begin with Dürer’s "Melencolia I." Its theme, the speaker suggests, is the drama and tragedy of intellectual life. The pursuit of knowledge begins with passion, excitement, even mania. In extreme forms, it may become (or be mistaken for) madness. Even (or especially) with success, it culminates in apathy and depression. Dürer’s view had its critics. One was Cranach the Elder, who produced a number of painting depicting Melancholy as a witch, seducing those unwise enough to fall under her spell. But despite Cranach’s warnings (and those of his master, Luther), the threat of melancholy, or perhaps its temptations, remained powerful. In this context, the speaker will discuss the Renaissance’s best known melancholic, Hamlet, Prince of Denmark.

Talk | Vanished Waters: The Old Springs, Wells and Watercourses of Bloomingdale Manhattan Neigborhood (online)


It's very possible that there's a stream running under the basement of the building where you live. Or that there was once a well at the corner of your block. Water has always been an important part of Bloomingdale neighborhood history. Streams and ponds covered our landscape before the Dutch arrived and when the Croton Aqueduct came right through Bloomingdale, it changed the neighborhood forever. Some 120 years ago, James Ruell Smith, an interesting fellow with a camera and a bicycle, found and documented every spring and well in the area. Gil Tauber and Jim Mackin will cover all this and much more in this illustrated presentation created especially for the Bloomingdale Neighborhood History Group.

Book Discussion | Kick the Latch: Life at the Racetrack


Kathryn Scanlan's novel vividly captures the arc of one woman's life at the racetrack--the flat land and ramshackle backstretch; the bad feelings and friction; the winner's circle and the racetrack bar; the fancy suits and fancy boots; and the "particular language" of "grooms, jockeys, trainers, racing secretaries, stewards, pony people, hotwalkers, everybody"--with economy and integrity.

Arguing that the generative power of Said's thought extends well beyond Orientalism, the book explores Said's writings on the experience of exile, the practice of "contrapuntal" criticism, and the illuminating potential of worldly humanism. Said's critical vision, Morefield argues, provides a fresh perspective on debates in political theory about subjectivity, global justice, identity, and the history of political thought. Most importantly, she maintains, Said's approach offers theorists a model of how to bring the insights developed through historical analyses of imperialism and anti-colonialism to bear on critiques of contemporary global crises and the politics of American foreign policy.

Screening | Maritime Film Festival


A three-part film festival celebrating the rich coastal culture, maritime traditions, and legacy of human engagement with New York's harbor. The film: A World Within a World: Long Island Bay Houses examines the lives, history, and experiences of bay house owners in the Town of Hempstead from both a historical and contemporary perspective. Based on fieldwork by folklorist and maritime ethnographer Nancy Solomon of Long Island Traditions, local filmmakers Barbara Weber and Greg Blank capture the essence of how bay house owners have persevered and endured through severe storms and hurricanes as well as eroding marshlands all while preserving traditions that began in the early 19th century. The film profiles Long Island families who have owned bay houses for over 100 years including the Muller, McNeece, Burchianti, Warasila and Jankoski families. The screening will include a discussion and Q & A session with the filmmakers - Barbara Weber and Greg Blank - and Nancy Solomon of Long Island Traditions.
