Come one, Come all! This fall it's a Pickle Ball! Round up the gang and get ready for another brine-soaked Pickle Day. The street will once again be transformed into a scene out of 1930s LES when barrels full of pickles and pushcarts truly lined the streets. This year’s foodie festival will feature a number of newbies – first time friends of Pickle Day, including Epic Pickles, Brooklyn Whatever and Kilhaney's. They’ll be set up alongside Pickle Day faves and originals such as Pickle Guys, Pickle Me Pete and Horman's Best Pickles. If cukes ain’t yo thang, Pickle Day promises many more brine soaked munchies including kimchee, mushrooms, slaw and beets to go along with the beats from our stage programmed by the LES’s own Louie and Chan. If you have no time for brine, the streets will also be filled with 30+ local food and fashion vendors including The Meatball Shop, Melt Bakery, Sweet Buttons Desserts and Askan.

Conference |
This conference seeks to celebrate that history by connecting a diverse array of Greenwich Villagers in conversation about their experiences in the neighborhood. Structured like an academic conference, Village Past, Present, and Future seeks to encourage conversation and learning about local topics and experiences.  Greenwich Village in 1960 Here's how it will work: a Village expert will provide a 10 minute "conversation starter" on an important historical, political, cultural, or personal topic, and then participate in a moderated discussion on that topic with all the participants in the room. This conference will serve to facilitate a space in which everyone's voice can be heard. Schedule of Events: 1:30pm - Tom Eubanks, author of Ghosts of St. Vincent's, will speak about St. Vincent's Triangle Park, a tiny stretch of land in Greenwich Village, with an outsized portion of history attached to it.  2:45pm - Vicki Sando, a Greenwich Village parent and activist, will discuss how she successfully advocated for more green spaces in the city, culminating in the Greenroof Environmental Literacy Laboratory atop P.S. 41. 4:00pm - Andrew Berman, Executive Director of the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation, will discuss two prominent buildings that were saved by the community and reborn with new purposes: The Jefferson Market Library (formerly a courthouse), and The Public Theater (formerly the Astor Library). Both institutions celebrate their 50 year anniversary this Fall. 2:00pm - Robert Kaufelt, former proprieter of Murray's Cheese and third generation food retailer, will discuss his 25 years of leadership at the helm of an iconic Village retailer, from purchase to eventual sale, and the issues facing small businesses today. 3:30pm - Sheryl Woodruff, a public historian and Community Development Director at The Washington Square Conservancy, will speak about the many changes and controversies that Washington Square Park has undergone in its long history, and will explore the park's most recent redesign in comparison to the landscape's evolution over time. 3:00pm - Leonora Champagne, a local performance artist, will perform TRAPS, a solo about getting stuck on the subway, struggling with squirrels, and seeking light in a dark time. A reflection on the traps we encounter--both everyday and large-scale--this interactive performance aims  to show ways to get past the obstacles that hinder us, both personally and as a society at large through conversation with spectators. TRAPS is made possible in part with public funds from Creative Engagement, supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, through the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council.

Known as America's first suburb, Brooklyn Heights is truly a gem. Travel and Leisure named it one of America's top 10 most beautiful neighborhoods, and its beauty is rivaled only by its place in American history. These quaint, tree-lined streets have been the sites of Revolutionary War battles, abolitionist activism and have inspired numerous novelists. Visit a stop on the Underground Railroad, or the home of Truman Capote, where he penned Breakfast at Tiffany's and where Jackie Robinson signed with the Dodgers.

New York City is a mecca for graffiti and street art, making it a very attractive playground for artists from around the world. Bushwick, in a working class district on the north side of Brooklyn adjacent to Williamsburg, has been attracting artists for some time now. The neighborhood has a fair collection of art studios and galleries, but it’s Bushwick’s industrial landscape that’s attracting the street artist. If you came looking for 1960′s Greenwich Village, you’ll find something brewing in Bushwick. Tour takes place Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

Arguably the world's most valuable, busiest and most crowded pieces of real estate, Midtown Manhattan is what most visitors think of when they think of New York City. Home to some of the city's most iconic architecture, from Gothic to Post-Modern and from Beaux-Arts to Art Deco (lots of Art Deco). it's not difficult to understand why. But just behind the massive facades, lie facinating histories just waiting to be unveiled.

Proving that the clash between old folks’ comedy and young folks’ comedy is very funny, this play imagines playwright Neil Simon on the eve of his 90th birthday. Determined to write his last hit.  When Neil Simon meets 20-something Mike Green, Simon believes he has found the right collaborator to do just that.  A fantasy comedic romp through the work and life of Neil Simon, America's funniest and most successful playwright ever while examining the history of American comedy itself.

The skeletal remains of the High Line’s elevated tracks set the perfect scene for a spooky evening. Join Free Tours by Foot for a journey to the creepier side of New York City’s most unique park. On this tour you’ll hear tales of the strange eccentric who lived below the tracks and saved them from demise, the curse of a West Side Cowboy who fell to his death from the elevated track, and the children who haunt the street formerly known as Death Avenue. If the moon hangs right perhaps you’ll witness the spectacle of a ghostly ship floating down the Hudson River; is it the long forgotten crew of Henry Hudson’s Half-Moon warning sailors not to go to sea? Or is it Captain Kidd protecting the treasure he buried on Liberty Island? Venture at your own risk through the dark side of High Line.

Greenwich Village is among Manhattan's most desirable and expensive residential neighborhoods. It's history, however, betrays it's monied status. The Village, with it's quiet, shaded streets, lined with lovely brick and brownstone townhouses, was once the incubating ground of artistic, social and political movements that have helped shape US history. From the Beats to the Folk Movement, from workers rights to gay rights, the Village has often been the center of it all.

Deirdre Bair was a newly minted Ph.D. who thought she was going to write a critical study of Samuel Beckett. One thing led to another, and she--who had never read biography--suddenly found herself writing one. Her talk will describe the privilege (and the trials and tribulations) of working with two living subjects. It will include her coming of age as a scholar and feminist, and why now is the proper time to tell these stories.

The Sustainable Development Goals were adopted two years ago, making it an opportune time for a first stocktaking. The SDGs make the central promise to Leave No One Behind and include a dedicated goal to reduce inequalities. Human rights advocates have put great hopes in the SDGs as an instrument for transformative change. But do they bring about the much-needed paradigm shift? Or were the extensive consultations and negotiations much ado about nothing? At this event, they will launch a special issue of the International Journal of Human Rights on the “Sustainable Development Goals and Human Rights: A Critical Early Review” co-edited by Inga Winkler and Carmel Williams. Speakers will focus on monitoring and policies for the way forward with a focus on invisible and marginalized population groups. less

The area around the High Line Park was a vital business district of New York City, supplying fresh fruits, French Cheeses and Russian caviar as well as fresh meats to City markets. The hustle and bustle of the streets induced the City to elevate the railroad trains delivering goods to the commercial buildings. When interstate truck traffic made the railway outdated, it fell into ruin, only to be regenerated as a park.

Sara Ahmed, independent scholar and feminist writer, explores how institutions are built from small acts of use. What usually happens seems to keep happening without having to be made into official policy and sometimes even despite an official policy. We learn about the institutional (as usual) from those who are trying to transform institutions. Ahmed will bring together data from her study of diversity work in universities first presented in On Being Included (2012) and developed in the middle section of Living a Feminist Life (2017) with her current research into “the uses of use” and complaint. She considers how social justice projects require making usage into a crisis.

Discussion |
This is a panel discussion amongst scholars from the Berlin-based Collaborative Research Centre “Episteme in Motion.” Knowledge is always in motion, even – and especially – where it appears to remain stable and tradition-bound. Premodern institutions and communities were regularly engaged in vibrant transcultural relations while their systems of knowledge were subject to constant change. Because the forms of exchange involved frequently challenge modern notions both of period boundaries and cultural spaces, they can be investigated in their full complexity only in an effort that is both collective and transdisciplinary. The Berlin-based Collaborative Research Centre “Episteme in Motion” meets this challenge and analyses the economies of knowledge transfer in selected premodern cultures from Europe and beyond. It draws on a unique reservoir of academic disciplines, including Arabic Studies, Jewish Studies, Classics, Medieval and Early Modern Literatures. The Centre’s individual projects examine knowledge transfer in a variety of cultural contexts ranging from medicine to visual art, from philosophy to literature and from linguistics to theology.

Filmmaker, critic, and poet Jonas Mekas has had an extraordinary life in the arts, playing an instrumental role in the careers of Jack Smith, Andy Warhol, and numerous other iconic artists as well as hanging out with everyone from Maya Deren to John Lennon and Yoko Ono, from Tiny Tim to Salvador Dalí, from the Kennedys to Fred Astaire. In A Dance with Fred Astaire, Mekas recalls his many chance encounters, intimate exchanges, and lasting friendships with some of the past century’s most iconic and beloved artists. Whether stealing Anaïs Nin’s cookies, living alongside Janis Joplin and Patti Smith in the Chelsea Hotel, contemplating life and death with Allen Ginsberg, or meeting Timothy Leary, Arthur Miller, Lenny Bruce and so many more, Mekas has spent 94 years weaving himself inextricably into the very fabric of American culture. In this special one-night-only program, Mekas will not only discuss the stories in the book with film critic Amy Taubin, he will also present a selection of short 16mm films he has curated from the Library’s Reserve Film and Video Collection. The films amplify anecdotes in A Dance with Fred Astaire and represent some of the incredible filmmakers whose lives and work have intersected with Mekas’.

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.” Tours take place every Tuesday at 10am, 11am, 2pm, and 3pm until Dec. 12, 2017.

Do you feel like there is creativity hiding inside of you, but are not sure where to find it? There are endless tutorials on taking pictures, but how do you figure out what to shoot in the first place? In order to develop a unique point of view, we have to understand how creativity works. To answer to these questions and many others surrounding the creative process Adam Marelli will take you through his findings which are the subject of his new book, Picture This: A Roadmap for Photographers and Their Creativity. He will also reveal a twenty three point process he uses for all of his work and lay out a map so you can successfully navigate the uncharted waters of your own imagination.

Join a three hour journey through some of New York City's most historic areas. Begin in Greenwich Village, one of the cultural centers of America. From there, make your way through the Gansevoort Market and the Meatpacking Historic Districts and then onto the extraordinary High Line. Then relive the bygone days of a thriving cruise ship and industrial waterfront along the Hudson; we'll see where trains ran along "death avenue", where the New York harbor along the Hudson was perhaps the most significant waterfront in the world at one time.

Life in today’s world is stressful. People are anxious about their health, their finances, their relationships, their safety and their work. Doctor’s and medical practitioners are promoting the benefits of meditation to relieve stress and anxiety.  By sitting in meditation, we can calm the body and the mind. We can slow our brain waves to states of relaxation. When we are in a state of physical and mental calmness, we have more control over our reactions towards life’s stressors.  Through meditation we can cope with the stresses of life. Meditation helps us replace anxiety with joy and peace. Dr. Frank Pawlowski delivers this informative lecture. There will even be a short meditation sitting.

Pyong Gap Min, Distinguished Professor of Sociology at Queens College, will give a talk on his critique of Sara Soh’s rejection of the Japanese “comfort women” system as sexual slavery. According to Min, Soh’s 2008 book, The Comfort Women: Sexual Violence and Postcolonial Memory in Korea and Japan, is the only comprehensive English-language book that covers both the “comfort women” issue and the redress movement for the victims of Japanese military sexual slavery, but it has provided many controversial arguments.  Prof. Min will try to show that many of Soh’s arguments provided to reject the sexual slavery thesis conflict with facts and logically unsound. Prof. Min is completing a book project focusing the redress movement for the victims of Japanese military sexual slavery.

What do we mean when we use the term 'failed states'? This book presents the origins of the term, how it shaped the conceptual framework for international development and security in the post-Cold War era, and why. The book also questions how specific international interventions on both aid and security fronts - greatly varied by actor - based on these outsiders' perceptions of state failure create conditions that fit their characterizations of failed states.

In 1975, news broke that New York City was on the brink of fiscal collapse, shocking people in the city and around the nation. How could the country’s largest metropolis be nearly broke? Over the rest of the year, the city’s fate hung in the balance as it struggled to win aid from Washington, DC—where President Gerald Ford and his advisers greeted New York with the attitude summed up in the famous Daily News headline, “Ford to City: Drop Dead.” Even though the city did not, in the end, go bankrupt, the crisis and response transformed approaches to city governance and popular views of the role of business in New York. How can the story of New York’s fiscal crisis help us think about the possibilities and limits of urban politics today, especially as Mayor Bill de Blasio seeks re-election? What relevance does the fiscal crisis of the 1970s have for our current era of fiscal crises—in Detroit, Hartford, Puerto Rico, and for many states around the nation? And how might the history of New York in the 1970s enable us to reflect on the rise of Donald Trump, who got his start in Manhattan real estate at that time? Featuring: Kimberly K Phillips-Fein

From the vantage point of 100 years, what was the lasting significance of the Russian Revolution? Some have argued that European fascism was a direct response to the Bolshevik seizure of power, and hence that the Russian Revolution helped produce the Second World War and the postwar division of Europe. Others have seen the Revolution as inaugurating a form of rule continuous with earlier Russian authoritarian patterns; from this perspective, the Revolution had relatively little impact on the long-term trajectory of Russian society itself, at least. Against this background, the panelists will address the nature of the Russian Revolution and its historical consequences up to the present day.

With incredible views and countless amenities, New York City’s waterfront parks are year-round destinations for visitors and residents alike. And while these waterfront parks have been traditionally designed for recreation, with increasing frequency, coastal cities are redesigning waterfront parks and public spaces for the dual purpose of providing both recreational spaces as well as protection from flooding and extreme weather events. This panel will discuss the benefits, challenges, and opportunities in designing resilient and sustainable parks and public spaces that protect our neighborhoods while also providing the recreational opportunities and amenities for all New Yorkers. NYC Parks Commissioner Mitchell J. Silver will host a public discussion on resilient and sustainable design with Principal of SWA/Balsley Thomas Balsley, and Principal-in-Charge of WXY architecture + urban design Claire Weisz.

From the 1920s through the middle of the 20th century, artist William Gropper was one of the country’s best known social critics.

Greenwich Village is among Manhattan's most desirable and expensive residential neighborhoods. It's history, however, betrays it's monied status. The Village, with it's quiet, shaded streets, lined with lovely brick and brownstone townhouses, was once the incubating ground of artistic, social and political movements that have helped shape US history. From the Beats to the Folk Movement, from workers rights to gay rights, the Village has often been the center of it all.

Arguably the world's most valuable, busiest and most crowded pieces of real estate, Midtown Manhattan is what most visitors think of when they think of New York City. Home to some of the city's most iconic architecture, from Gothic to Post-Modern and from Beaux-Arts to Art Deco (lots of Art Deco). it's not difficult to understand why. But just behind the massive facades, lie facinating histories just waiting to be unveiled.

The area around the High Line Park was a vital business district of New York City, supplying fresh fruits, French Cheeses and Russian caviar as well as fresh meats to City markets. The hustle and bustle of the streets induced the City to elevate the railroad trains delivering goods to the commercial buildings. When interstate truck traffic made the railway outdated, it fell into ruin, only to be regenerated as a park.

As we imagine it, networking is an exotic activity which is practiced by extremely extroverted sales people, not something we would willingly do. And if networking is something we like, how focused are we on the different approaches needed for each type? The fact is that most of us do not understand networking. Networking is not one thing. There are three distinct types of networking and none of them involve having a personality transplant to be successful. Join coach Win Sheffield and learn how to use networking fully in a way that is effective for you and what you need in your career.

Has there been a role reversal between the US and China on the environment? China has long been considered an environmental outlier-- horrendous smog episodes, water unfit to drink and even to irrigate, huge increases in the number of cars on the road, a global leader in the use of pesticides, a major coal producer and importer, a reluctant participant in global climate negotiations until recently, and more. The US, until November 9, had been seen as at least modestly responsive to environmental concerns. Now with Donald Trump and Scott Pruitt ensconced in Washington seeking to systematically dismantle the environmental policy system in contrast to the passage of environmental legislation and a new role around climate change in China, the roles do seem to be reversing. Is that an accurate view? Speaker Robert Gottlieb is Emeritus Professor at Occidental College and founder and former executive director of the Urban and Environmental Policy Institute. He is the author or co-author of more than a dozen books; his most recent book, co-authored with Simon Ng, is Global Cities: Urban Environments in Los Angeles, Hong Kong, and China.

'History must restore what slavery took away': such was the urgent, if haunting, imperative of history as reparations, articulated in 1925 by Arturo Schomburg. At a moment when the very idea of black historicity aroused doubt, Schomburg, an Afro-Puerto Rican bibliophile in New York, built an unprecedented 'race library' documenting the African diasporic past. This talk examines the contested place of slavery in archival economies at once affective and pecuniary. In tracing how Schomburg bought, and ultimately sold, his library, this talk shows how early African American archives recast the market's devaluation of black lives and letters. Speaker Laura Helton is an assistant professor in the Department of English at the University of Delaware.

Award-winning journalist Johanna Neuman spotlights the New York City socialites who turned a feminist cause into a fashionable revolution. In the early twentieth century, over two hundred of New York’s most glamorous socialites joined the suffrage movement. Understanding the need for popular approval for any social change, they leveraged their social celebrity, wealth, and power to court mainstream interest, turning a woman’s right to vote into a fashionable cause.

In the light of today's debates about the nature of pleasure, desire, happiness, and enjoyment, Giacomo Leopardi's observations on pleasure and desire strike us as both Romantic and post-Romantic - and uncannily up-to-date with 20th century psychoanalysis and contemporary theory. In his absolute certainty that the only desire is infinite desire and that no object, no goal, no accomplishment will ever bring satisfaction, Leopardi's theory of pleasure is the missing link between the Enlightenment debates about happiness, Freud's death drive, Lacan's enjoyment, and Deleuze's and Guattari's notion of productive desire.

Hip Hop Heresies proposes new ways to think about the “authentic” hip hop body and the ways hip hop artists, DJs, rappers, and filmmakers, in this case, deploy New York City and its specific artistic, racial, gender, and sexual populations and traditions, to remake hip hop meaning and doing. Particularly, this manuscript troves the rich and untapped alternate hip hop historiographies—the queer(ed) bodies, Afro-Asian cultural production, sonic gender drag, graphic novel avatars, and the mash-up of rap and Broadway musicals. Speaker Shanté Paradigm Smalls won CLAGS’ 2016 Fellowship Award for Best First Book Project in LGBTQ Studies.

In the 1960s and ’70s, a diverse range of storefronts brought the work of the era’s social movements into the marketplace. Thousands of these enterprises opened across the country–but only a handful have survived. Some, such as Whole Foods Market, ultimately abandoned their quest for collective political change. Joshua Davis uncovers the forerunners of today’s social enterprises, while showing how contemporary companies replicate the language–but rarely the mission–of liberation and social change.

The Serbian social movement Otpor (Resistance) played a vital role in bringing down Slobodan Milosevic in 2000. Inspired by Otpor's example, similar challenger organizations were formed in Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, and Ukraine. The youth movements, however, differed in the extent to which they could mobilize citizens against the authoritarian governments on the eve of national elections. This book argues that the movement's tactics and state countermoves explain, in no small degree, divergent social movement outcomes. Using data from semi-structured interviews with former movement participants, public opinion polls, government publications, non-governmental organization (NGO) reports, and newspaper articles, the book traces state-movement interactions in five post-communist societies: Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Serbia, and Ukraine. Olena Nikolayenko is an Associate Professor and Associate Chair for Undergraduate Studies in the Department of Political Science at Fordham University.

Discussion |
The extraordinary power of music to communicate complex emotions and thoughts has fascinated scholars for centuries. Music taps into cognitive mechanisms that govern our daily interactions with the world, such as expectations and violations of these expectations, and appears to have much in common with language. In addition, music plays social and ethical functions that can be understood from philosophical, historical, and cultural perspectives. This is a discussion with three renowned scholars from the humanities and cognitive science who will show how these modes of inquiry bear on each other and explain what makes music mean. Welcoming Remarks: David Freedberg, Pierre Matisse Professor of the History of Art and Director Pamela Smith, Professor of History and Chair, Presidential Scholars in Society and Neuroscience Jacqueline Gottlieb, Professor of Neuroscience Speakers: David Huron, Arts and Humanities Distinguished Professor, School of Music & Center for Cognitive and Brain Sciences, Ohio State University Aniruddh D.

The Trump Administration’s announcement that it would increase the US troop presence in Afghanistan signals a new force-based approach to solving the conflict. In recent years, Russia has actively engaged with the Afghanistan issue, sponsoring regional conferences and peace talks, while Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov commented that the Trump Administration's new strategy is a “dead end.” How are Washington and Moscow now approaching the promotion of peace and stability in the region and what are their underlying assumptions and constraints? How does each country approach questions of a negotiated political settlement and broader regional diplomacy? Is there a danger of a proxy conflict emerging between the Untied States and Russia in Afghanistan and more broadly across Central Asia? Please join us for a discussion with leading Afghanistan experts from both Russia and the United States. Chairs: Alexander Cooley, Director, Harriman Institute Joshua Tucker, Director, Jordan Center

This talk will present some of the significant historiographical contributions of studying religion in colonial Mexico from the starting point of laywomen's participation and experience. Looking at laywomen's interactions with clergy, ecclesiastical courts, sacraments and other church rituals, and cloisters, the larger study from which this talk is taken argues that women were central in the gradual process of creating colonial religious culture in New Spain. This talk synthesizes some of the most important findings of this larger study, focusing on the ways that centering laywomen impacts a number of historical and theoretical debates in the field of colonial Latin American history the history of early modern Catholicism. Speaker Jessica Delgado is an Assistant Professor of Religion at Princeton University.

Signal to Noise describes a contemporary mode of perception -- and practice, within our contemporary culture and acknowledges that cultural production today is set against an expanding backdrop of media and information. This superabundance of signals, images, and data points creates a congested context against which all public arts are read. Indeed the notion of public – and private- has been fundamentally altered by a technologically expanded sense of commons that extends across media formats and channels.

More broadly, they will argue for a reengagement of media theory with the broader tradition of social theory in the face of a radical expansion of what media are, and how mediation and datafication are embedded in everyday social orders.   With: Nick Couldry, London School of Economics and Political Science, and Andreas Hepp, University of Bremen.

In her recent most work, Perry-Herrera derives from a project that she was immersed in during 2010. During that time the artist undertook the role of a researcher to investigate the lumber sold in her local hardware store and tracked it to the timber-felling site outside of Houston, Texas. From her research originated the idea of perceiving contemporary events in retrospect. Here, the work provokes the inquiry of imagining a world where trees are only a memory. Perry-Herrera uses cyanotype, an obsolete photographic process that relies on the sun, to reproduce the various images that she collected from her timber-felling research. Adding to the preciousness of the trees, she preserves the cyanotype images in resin.

With the guidance of artist Francine Perlman, you will create sculpture through a variety of methods: mixing and pouring plaster into existing containers of various shapes, carving into the hardened shapes, joining the molded shapes together, and draping plaster-dipped strips of fabric or paper over existing forms or shaped wire mesh. After forms are complete, they may be painted or decorated in other ways. This is a fun and freewheeling class with the goal of completing one or more pieces in two sessions. There is the opportunity to have finished sculptures on display. Students should bring container forms and an apron or other suitable work clothes.

Lecture |
Zoopoetics aims to highlight the plurality of stylistic, linguistic and narrative tools used by writers to express the plurality of animal activities, affects and worlds, as well as the intricacies of the interactions between humans and animals. Such an approach helps to understand that all life forms are in a relationship of dependence with an arche (Husserl)--an origin, a reason, a refuge, a dwelling, the Earth--and that animals are more stylistic or rhetorical beings than we usually think of them as being. Evolution and biomorphic logics allow us to intuitively understand other species related to us, to share many of their emotions and expressions, and to be able to account for them through specific human means, such as evocative and figurative language. The lecture will show that perspectivism, metamorphosis and hybridity are universal patterns and experiences that literature embodies in different ways. Speaker Anne Simon is a Research Director at the Centre National de la Recherche Francaise and a Member of the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales (Paris), where she leads the Project "Animots".

The Village, with it's quiet, shaded streets, lined with lovely brick and brownstone townhouses, was once the incubating ground of artistic, social and political movements that have helped shape US history. From the Beats to the Folk Movement, from workers rights to gay rights, the Village has often been the center of it all.
