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.

Campbell’s works perform critical excavations of history, drawing on archival research.

Lecture | Russia’s Muslims at War (in-person and online)

In turn, the war has confronted Muslim communities in Russia with a host of challenges. This talk explores the spectrum of responses that key Muslim elites have offered in adapting to the Kremlin’s agenda in Ukraine and assesses the role of Islam in shaping the course of the war and the politics of the region. Speaker Robert Crews is professor of history at Stanford U., where he writes and teaches about global history and politics, focusing on Russia, Afghanistan, Central Asia, South Asia, and Islam.

Discussion | Praxis of Human Rights in the Era of 21st Century Capitalism


Alicia Ely Yamin’s new second edition of When Misfortune Becomes Injustice makes a compelling case for why the praxis of human rights—human rights for social change—must be rethought to meet the challenges of finance and monopoly capitalism in the twenty-first century. Yamin brings to life the history of human rights law, as it relates to the exacerbation of extreme inequity and wealth disparity and their direct impact on health and prosperity, especially amid the recent covid-19 pandemic.

Classical Music | CANCELLED***American Symphony Orchestra Performs New Work***CANCELLED


A new work commissioned by the American Symphony Orchestra, written by composer and percussionist Javier Diaz, whose studio credits include Steven Spielberg's West Side Story and Lin Manuel Miranda's In The Heights. The piece for chamber ensemble incorporates stylistic elements from music across the Americas and takes us on a journey through history, spaces, and generations. It evokes the idea of ancestral sounds, and it is inspired by traditional musics from the Western Hemisphere: ancient songs from the Afro-Cuban tradition, Mexico, the African-American tradition, Venezuela, Haiti, and a "merging" between a J.S. Bach Chorale and a Venezuelan Merengue. America UNBOUND is a unique artistic experience that exalts the human condition and underlines the importance of multi-cultural influences in the shaping of the musics of the Americas. This new work is eclectic and multi-cultural, with a robust compositional design: the American continent unbound through a journey of musical histories and inter-generational melodies, making palpable the universality of sound, word, and song. Performed by a chamber ensemble of ASO musicians (violin, percussion, double bass, clarinet and trumpet) featuring GRAMMY nominated Imani Winds' oboist Toyin Spellman-Diaz.

Book Discussion | The Forgotten Borough: Staten Island and the Subway (online)


Is transportation destiny? Historian Kenneth M. Gold argues that the borough's lack of a subway connection is at the heart of its social, political, and historical identity. In his new book, Gold, who is also a co-editor of Discovering Staten Island: A 350th Anniversary Commemorative History, tracks the multiple failed attempts to bring mass transit and transportation infrastructure to Staten Island in the century before the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge changed the borough's relationship to Greater New York in 1964. The Forgotten Borough first focuses on Staten Island in the late-nineteenth century and its incorporation into New York City in the 1890s, then analyzes a succession of plans to connect Brooklyn and Staten Island via a freight and passenger tunnel. Proponents, like real estate developers and residents, were hopeful about potential profits and the ease of commuting, but ultimately the competing interests of organizations such as the Transit Commission, the Port of New York Authority, and the Public Service Commission, could not align. Gold concludes with an account of the alternate connection opportunities which eventually led to the opening of Robert Moses's Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge in 1964.

Lecture | Bring into Order: School(ing) as War of Correction (online)


A look at education and prison systems. The existence of the school-to-prison pipeline in the United States is well documented; less so is a conceptualization of correction as a social institution that affects carcerality writ large and other regimes of capitalist and racialized discipline and control. This conversation with Dylan Rodríguez not only pushes beyond “reform” as an objective of collective engagement with, and revolt against, regimes of correction (schooling and otherwise) but also recognizes how reform is already part of the correctional apparatus and its logic of carcerality and policing. Speaker Dylan Rodríguez is Professor and Chair of the Department of Ethnic Studies at the University of California, Riverside.

Book Discussion | Radical: A Life of My Own


Acclaimed Chinese-British writer and filmmaker Xiaolu Guo and Chinese-Scottish poet Jay Gao in a conversation on Radical: A Life of My Own. In Guo’s new memoir, language and translation are the starting points that ask how a diasporic artist might live authentically and radically in the 21st century. Guo and Gao will discuss how their personal lexicons of art can help redefine entanglements across transnational borders and boundaries. Both writers will explore how their experiences of living in the USA, as well as in the UK, have shaped their understanding of nationality, Chineseness, belonging, lineage, and creative freedom. In the belief that literature and writing can help us make better sense of our increasingly globalized and diasporic world, this event will critically engage with the questions of: What does it mean to be rooted? What does it mean to write radically? Event address:  Heyman Center for the Humanities East Campus Residential Center Columbia University

Staged Reading | The Silverfish: Young, in Love, and Desperate


In Megan Loughran's play, Beth and Brandon are young and in love and they have no money. They're living in Brooklyn pursuing careers they are passionate about. Which is another way of saying they have no money. When they're suddenly thrown a Godawful, expensive curveball, they combine their desperation with their underutilized talents and come up with a plan. It might not be a plan that "good people" would go for, but when you're young and in love and desperate and poor, the word "good" can mean a lot of things.

Ms. was the first U.S. magazine to feature prominent American women demanding the repeal of laws that criminalized abortion; explain and advocate for the Equal Rights Amendment; rate presidential candidates on women’s issues; feature domestic violence and sexual harassment on its cover, long before either was widely understood or acknowledged; and commission and publish a national study on date rape. Here is the best reporting, fiction, and advertising, decade by decade, as well as the best photographs and features that reveal and reflect the changes set in motion by Ms., along with the iconic covers that galvanized readers.

Poetry Reading | Emerald Wounds: A Surrealist Poet from 1950s Paris (online)


Rediscover Joyce Mansour, the most significant Surrealist poet to emerge from 1950s Paris. Joyce Mansour, a Syrian Jewish exile from Egypt, was 25 years old when she published her first book in Paris in 1953. Her fierce, macabre, erotically charged works caught the eye of Andre Breton, who welcomed her into his Surrealist group and became her lifelong friend and ally. Despite her success in surrealist circles, her books received scant attention from the literary establishment, which is hardly surprising since Mansour's favorite topics happened to be two of society's greatest fears: death and unfettered female desire. Now, over half a century later, Mansour's time has come. Emerald Wounds collects her most important work, spanning the entire arc of her career, from the gothic, minimalist fragments of her first published work to the serpentine power of her poems of the 1980s. In fresh new translations, Mansour's voice surges forth uncensored and raw, communicating the frustrations, anger, and sadness of an intelligent, worldly woman who defies the constraints and oppression of a male-dominated society. Mansour is a poet the world needs today.
