Between 1880-1924, over 4 million Italians immigrated to the United States. Many settled in the neighborhood in downtown Manhattan, where Italian-Americans began to establish a unique culture that mixed the traditions of the old country with the ebbs and flows of their new home. This two hour walking tour visits the churches, restaurants, and infamous locales that have made Little Italy one of America's most enduring and celebrated neighborhoods.

Play | Hoppla, We’re Alive!: A Landmark of Weimar and Early Epic Theater


Hoppla, We're Alive! is one of the landmarks of Weimar and early Epic Theater—the opening production of the Piscatorbühne in September of 1927 and a critical success on the scale of Brecht and Weill’s Threepenny Opera. A thrilling indictment of the politico-military-industrial corrupting democracy, Toller’s play remains frighteningly relevant today. Toller’s dissection of political conspiracies, failed revolution, feminist emancipation and class solidarity suggests one answer: it is only in the constant struggle against power that we are alive. This adaptation of the Piscator collective’s original production constitutes the work’s US premiere.

Performance | Storytelling: Tea in the Slammer


The gritty, true, sometimes hilarious journey of a convent-raised English woman who discovers a surprising use for her tea-making skills while working behind the razor wire as the Protestant chaplain at the largest men's prison in Maryland. Part gripping storytelling, part eye-opening expose, wholly enjoyable, this show charts storyteller Chaplain Geraldine Buckley's introduction to the dark, dangerous world beyond the razor wire and how she won the trust of the troubled men locked up behind it. Unforgettable! Since leaving prison work, storyteller Geraldine Buckley has traveled extensively throughout the US telling stories and teaching workshops and has performed as far away as New Zealand. Geraldine has been featured twice at the National Storytelling Festival, is frequently heard on Sirius radio, and has received three Gold Awards from Storytelling World.

Author Reading | A Month in Siena: Eight Significant Paintings


After finishing his powerful memoir The Return, Hisham Matar, seeking solace and pleasure, traveled to Siena, Italy. Always finding comfort and clarity in great art, Matar immersed himself in eight significant works from the Sienese School of painting, which flourished from the thirteenth to the fifteenth centuries. Artists whom he had admired throughout his life, such as Duccio and Ambrogio Lorenzetti, evoke earlier engagements he has had with works by Caravaggio and Poussin, and the personal experiences that surrounded those moments.

Forum | Veterans Day Transit of Mercury Presentation: The History and Mechanics of Transits


Only two planets transit the Sun, as viewed from Earth. For a few hundred years, people have been watching Mercury and Venus drift across the Sun's surface, and using these events to measure the Earth-Sun distance, a measurement on which many other astronomical calculations rely. In addition to some of the history of these observations and measurements, they'll take a close look at these alignments of Earth, Sun and, Mercury or Venus, to see why transits occur when they do, always during the same two months of the year. Schedule: 10:00 - 10:30 - Irene Pease, History and Mechanics of Transits 10:30 - 11:00 - "Kuiper Kat," Katherine Troche, Mercury and the MESSENGER Mission 11:00 - 11:30 - Stan Honda, Photographing the Transit of Mercury 11:30 - 12:00 - Micah Acinapura, A view of Mercury in OpenSpace 12:00 - 12:30 - Brian Levine, Solar Missions 12:30 - 1:00 - William Koster, Transiting Exoplanets

Discussion | Mobilizing for the Climate Emergency: A French-American Discussion


Environmentalist and author Bill McKibben was among the first journalists to sound the alarm about the perils of climate change over 30 years ago, and he has continued to be a leading voice in raising awareness about climate disruption and a leader in launching an international climate movement as founder of 350.org. Marie Toussaint is a jurist and French member of the European Parliament in the Green Party and a founder of Notre affaire à tous, which has sued the French state for its inaction in the fight against global warming, and the affair mobilized 2 million people to sign an associated petition. They will reflect together on the roles policymakers, activists, journalists, and artists need to play alongside scientists in mobilizing people to care and amplifying the call to action.

Lecture | Earth Hunger: Global Integration and the Need for Strangers


This is the story of a great debate, one that has shaped our times: how humans came to deal with, to embrace and to resist, their dependence upon strangers once local worlds opened up into one interconnected and interdependent world. Interdependence has been the source of hopes and of horrors, of one-world dreaming and of unspeakable atrocities. In our day of climate change and Nation-Firsters, how we handle our fragile togetherness will shape the lives of generations to come. Earth Hunger reflects on this condition; by drawing on experiences and debates from the past, it explores pathways for the future. Speaker Jeremy Adelman is the Henry Charles Lea Professor of History at Princeton University has lived and worked in seven countries and four continents.

Author Reading | CBD!: A Parodic Parable


CBD has insinuated itself into every aspect of our lives, from body oil to pet food. The cannabis derivative cannabidiol is an omnipresent cure-all that has gone from being “voguish” to “a mainstream panacea,” as The New York Times recently noted. And it’s a particular favorite of the crowd endemic to Brooklyn, the Bay Area, and other similar urban environs. Now comes Amy Sohn’s parodic parable CBD!, written in the style of the beloved children’s book by William Steig. A unique work of humor and a puzzle book, it is packed with charming black-and-white illustrations by Eric Hanson—and for those of us who need it, there’s a solution key in the back. Though not appropriate for kids (except for really smart and transgressive ones), CBD! will delight CBD users, irreverent parents, ex-children, and anyone curious about or appalled by the wellness industry.

This month's title being discussed is Sula by Toni Morrison. Two girls who grow up to become women. Two friends who become something worse than enemies. In this brilliantly imagined novel, Toni Morrison tells the story of Nel Wright and Sula Peace, who meet as children in the small town of Medallion, Ohio. Their devotion is fierce enough to withstand bullies and the burden of a dreadful secret. It endures even after Nel has grown up to be a pillar of the black community and Sula has become a pariah. But their friendship ends in an unforgivable betrayal—or does it end? Terrifying, comic, ribald and tragic, Sula is a work that overflows with life.

Lecture | The Dialectic in Politics: Affirmation, Negation, and the Affirmative Part of the Negation


The classical theory of dialectics manifests the idea of contradiction between two terms. For instance, the historical dialectic is the development of the contradiction between a dominant class and a dominated (or exploited) class. But this vision ends up reducing the dialectical process to negation only, to what Hegel himself calls "the work of the negative." This is the view present today everywhere: we must "fight against" the established order. Speaker Alain Badiou will argue that, so conceived, the dialectic is always a dialectic of failure. For what counts ultimately is not pure negation, but what is affirmed from within the negation itself. Thus, as shown by the victories and failures in politics, there are not two terms, but three: the affirmation (the power of the enemy), the negation (the uprising and the struggle against this power) and what the negation contains of affirmation (the Idea of an entirely new affirmation).

Lecture | What is the Ukrainian Diaspora? The Formation of a Transnational Identity Throughout the 20th Century


This talk will present a history of the formation of a common Ukrainian diasporic community in the West, taking into the analysis three main cases: Canada, the US, and Australia. The existence of a single Ukrainian diaspora has been questioned in the past, as the Ukrainian communities in different countries have developed different ways of preserving their Ukrainian cultural patrimony. Despite these differences, Ukrainian communities strove for building and preserving a wider community, especially after the Bolshevik revolution. Speaker Simone Bellezza will provide a story of these attempts: showing that the condition of migrants fostered the development of elastic and transnational national identities, which allowed the individual to be at the same time a full citizen of his/her new country and also a member of a wider international community. This entails a reformulation of the definition of diaspora. Recounting the history of Ukrainian communities abroad, Bellezza will show that the formation of a diasporic community was not a necessary outcome, but the result of particular conditions, political movement, and even individual contributions.

Classical Music | Bach at Noon


The organ works of J.S. Bach (1685-1750) offered in 30-minute meditations. Johann Sebastian Bach was a German composer and musician of the Baroque period. He is known for instrumental compositions such as the Brandenburg Concertos and the Goldberg Variations as well as for vocal music such as the St. Matthew Passion and the Mass in B minor. Since the 19th-century Bach has been generally regarded as one of the greatest composers of all time. "The term 'baroque' has been widely used since the 19th century to describe the period in Western European art music from about 1600 to 1750... Many famous composers from the first part of the baroque period came from Italy and have a link with Venice, including Claudio Monteverdi and Antonio Vivaldi. Monteverdi was born in Cremona, but moved to Venice where he was 'maestro di capella' at the San Marco basilica. Vivaldi was born in Venice and was one of the greatest baroque composers. It is thanks to these strong musical traditions of Venice that we have today's music. Without Venetian church music and Monteverdi's advances with polyphony, the great traditions of choral music in England, France, and Germany would never have developed. Without the operas written by Monteverdi, Cavalli and Vivaldi, not only would the later styles of opera never have been invented. There would be no basis for the American Musical or the German and Viennese Operetta, the Spanish Zarzuela, and even rock, pop, and contemporary music as we know it." The Venice Insider Bach at Noon concerts take place every Tuesdays through Fridays, from September 10, 2019 to May 20, 2020.

Author Reading | Can Neoliberal Capitalism Affect Human Evolution?: How the US Business Class Controls the World


Professor Robert Chernomas, from Manitoba University will present his latest book. The book argues that what appears today as fragmented social, economic, environmental, and political problems are all manifestations of Neoliberalism- a 40-year-old class-based political-economic project to more favorably position capital in its struggle to preserve the conditions of profitability. It examines how the US business class has successfully increased control over, privatized, or modified labor markets, the determinants of health, the health care system, welfare, education, democracy and the natural world with significant effects on our individual and collective life chances.

A long-overdue biography of the head of Grand Central Terminal’s Red Caps, who flourished in the cultural nexus of Harlem and American railroads. Author Eric K. Washington uncovers the nearly forgotten life of James H. Williams (1878–1948), the chief porter of Grand Central Terminal’s Red Caps―a multitude of Harlem-based black men whom he organized into the essential labor force of America’s most august railroad station. Washington reveals that despite the highly racialized and often exploitative nature of the work, the Red Cap was a highly coveted job for college-bound black men determined to join New York’s burgeoning middle class.

Author Reading | Gordon Bunshaft and SOM: Building Corporate Modernism


Gordon Bunshaft’s landmark 1952 design for Lever House reshaped the Manhattan skyline and elevated the reputation of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM), the firm where he would spend more than 40 years as a partner. His legacy endures in the corporate headquarters, museums, and libraries that were built in his distinctive modernist style. Although this enigmatic architect left behind few records and famously claimed “the building speaks for itself,” architecture historian Nicholas Adams discerns in his work as a tension between his ambition for acclaim as a singular artistic genius and the collaborative structure of SOM’s architectural partnership. Join us for a talk that examines Bunshaft’s work in a critical context at a time when the future of his some of his iconic works is very much in question.

The Kitchen L.A.B. (Language, Art, Bodies) is a year-long series that brings together artists and writers across disciplines to unpack how the meaning of artistic and cultural terms may shift—and become more resonant or ambiguous—over time. This year, the series considers the term “regeneration” as it pertains to creating something new; as it relates to recycling or re-purposing historic issues or material; and, within the broader cultural and political landscape, as it intersects with the historical question of whether to bring about change through revolution or reform. The event features Sara Magenheimer, James Allister Sprang, Greg Tate and Avram Fefer.

Prohens has been composing since 1978 and is the author of Ensenyament de la música a Felanitx (The Teaching of Music in Felanitx), about music education in his hometown. He has lectured at Conservatori Professional de Música de Felanitx since 1972 and has served on the composition faculty at conservatories throughout the Balearic Islands. He is also president of Royal Academy of Fine Arts of San Sebastián of the Balearic Islands.  Prohens and Riera both teach currently at the Conservatori Superior de Música de les Illes Balears. Riera recently released an album of Prohens piano works, Ficció, and he also appeared on the 2017 album Impressions. Riera has won numerous piano prizes, including the Infanta Cristina (Madrid), Caja Postal in Madrid, Alonso Competition in the city of Valencia, Frederic Mompou (Barcelona), Jacinto Guerrero and the Mozart Competition, Salzburg Mozarteum. He has performed throughout Europe and North America, including right here in NYC, with Perspectives Ensemble (a resident ensemble at the Foundation for Iberian Music).

Screening | 2 Short Films: Abroad / Like Salt


Abroad - Jad and Rania, a Lebanese immigrant couple living in New York, struggle to achieve their shared dream of breaking into the entertainment industry due, in part, to the typecasting of Middle-Eastern actors. The combined pressures of juggling multiple day jobs and living so far from home begin to eat away at Jad, while Rania relishes the struggle. These differences are brought to light on the day that Jad proposes to Rania, and their relationship is put to a test as it becomes clear that their time abroad has left them yearning for different things. Like Salt - When living in diaspora turns into a boxing match, one learns to fight with bare knuckles. Hala, an Arab American female boxer in New York City, and Kendrick, an African American jazz musician, improvise their way through a passive-aggressive America.

Author Reading | Dictionary of the Undoing: In Defense of Words and Their Meaning


For John Freeman—literary critic, essayist, editor, poet, “one of the preeminent book people of our time” (Dave Eggers)—it is the rare moment when words are not enough. But in the wake of the election of 2016, words felt useless, even indulgent. Action was the only reasonable response. He took to the streets in protest, and the sense of community and collective conviction felt right. But the assaults continued—on citizens’ rights and long-held compacts, on the core principles of our culture and civilization, and on our language itself. Words seemed to be losing the meanings they once had and Freeman was compelled to return to their defense. The result is his Dictionary of the Undoing.

Author Reading | Indecent Advances: A Hidden History of True Crime and Prejudice Before Stonewall


A skillful hybrid of true crime and social history that examines the relationship between newspapers and popular culture in the portrayal of crimes against gay men in the decades before Stonewall. Stories of murder have never been just about killers and victims. Instead, crime stories take the shape of their times to reflect cultural notions and prejudices. In Indecent Advances, James Polchin recounts the lurid and euphemistic queer stories from the crime pages that reveal the history of violence against queer men.

Lecture | Towards Anonymous and Metadata Private Communication at Internet Scale


As the world becomes more connected, privacy is becoming harder to maintain. From social media services to Internet service providers to state-sponsored mass-surveillance programs, many outlets collect sensitive information about the users and the communication between them – often without the users ever knowing about it. In response, many Internet users have turned to end-to-end encryption, like Signal and TLS, to protect the content of the communication. Unfortunately, these works do little to hide the metadata of the communication, such as when and with whom a user is communicating. In scenarios where the metadata are sensitive, encryption alone is not sufficient to ensure users’ privacy. Speaker Srini Devadas is the Webster Professor of EECS at MIT where he has been on the faculty since 1988.

Classical Music | Bach at Noon


The organ works of J.S. Bach (1685-1750) offered in 30-minute meditations. Johann Sebastian Bach was a German composer and musician of the Baroque period. He is known for instrumental compositions such as the Brandenburg Concertos and the Goldberg Variations as well as for vocal music such as the St. Matthew Passion and the Mass in B minor. Since the 19th-century Bach has been generally regarded as one of the greatest composers of all time. "The term 'baroque' has been widely used since the 19th century to describe the period in Western European art music from about 1600 to 1750... Many famous composers from the first part of the baroque period came from Italy and have a link with Venice, including Claudio Monteverdi and Antonio Vivaldi. Monteverdi was born in Cremona, but moved to Venice where he was 'maestro di capella' at the San Marco basilica. Vivaldi was born in Venice and was one of the greatest baroque composers. It is thanks to these strong musical traditions of Venice that we have today's music. Without Venetian church music and Monteverdi's advances with polyphony, the great traditions of choral music in England, France, and Germany would never have developed. Without the operas written by Monteverdi, Cavalli and Vivaldi, not only would the later styles of opera never have been invented. There would be no basis for the American Musical or the German and Viennese Operetta, the Spanish Zarzuela, and even rock, pop, and contemporary music as we know it." The Venice Insider Bach at Noon concerts take place every Tuesdays through Fridays, from September 10, 2019 to May 20, 2020.

Lecture | Imagined Futures and Capitalist Dynamics


In a capitalist system, consumers, investors, and corporations orient their activities toward a future that contains opportunities and risks. How do actors assess the future if this future is open and uncertain? In this talk, Professor Jens Beckert attempts to add a new chapter to the theory of capitalism by demonstrating how fictional expectations drive modern economies--or throw them into crisis--when the imagined futures fail to materialize. Collectively held images of how the future will unfold are critical because they free economic actors from paralyzing doubt, enabling them to commit resources and coordinate decisions even if those expectations prove inaccurate. Since they are not confined to empirical reality, fictional expectations are a source of creativity in the economy.

Opening Reception | Mike Kelley: A Singular Approach to Painting


Over the course of his influential four-decade career, Mike Kelley generated a remarkably diverse oeuvre in an array of media, conflating high and low culture, critiquing prevailing aesthetic conventions, and colliding the sacred with the profane. This exhibition is the first in New York to focus on Kelley’s singular approach to painting as a conceptual medium. Featuring paintings from series that span a 15 year period, 1994 through 2009, the exhibition traces Kelley’s engagement with the medium through bodies of work including The Thirteen Seasons (Heavy on the Winter), a series of oval-shaped paintings on wood; Timeless Painting, which signified Kelley’s distinct return to painting in color.

Author Reading | The Art of Reading in Modern Europe: The Myths That Started It All


We live in a world where methods of communication and of thought change faster than they ever did before. What does this mean for literature? Looking at the risks and new challenges that are taking shape today, Lina Bolzoni's book looks back to the past in order to resurface the great myths that nourished the reading experiences at the start of the modern world: myths filled with allure, both powerful and fragile; inexorably distant, they observe us with "a familiar glance." In English.

Lecture | Character Traits: or, Can the Early Twentieth Century Please End?


The literature of early twentieth-century typographic industries presented a highly edited view of lettering history in support of their own products. The result was an historical sleight of hand that presented the period's technological and aesthetic presumptions as timeless fact. These late-Industrial aesthetics continue to exert a disproportionate influence on contemporary digital type design. In this talk, Russell Maret will attempt to tease out a different historical view of lettering, one that proposes that Industrial aesthetics should not be treated as the rule but the aberration in letter design. Along the way, he'll touch on related topics such as Is legibility worth it? Are digital letterforms type? and other hot-button issues.

Lecture | From Fiction to Lies: Literary Imagination in the Age of Post-Truth


The Colombian novelist Juan Gabriel Vásquez looks at the role of narrative in our contemporary lives. Vásquez examines how technological transformations have changed the way we use stories to interpret the world. In the society of “fake news,” what is the place of fiction? Is imaginative writing of any consequence in the time of post-truth? Vásquez questions the impact of new technologies on our relationship to literature and considers the way literature shapes our moral and political landscape.

Lecture | Sugar, Slavery, and Plantation Space in 19th Century Cuba


Dr. Reynaldo Ortiz-Minaya will discuss the interconnections between social relationships, material processes of production, and visual economies of plantation life. The analysis looks at the ways in which the shift from local/regional to global levels of sugar production determined specific spatial reconfigurations of the plantation itself, the Island of Cuba, and more specifically the housing arrangements for slaves, i.e., from bohios to barracones. What is the relationship between the reconfiguration of space (both inside the plantation and on the Island of Cuba); the material processes of producing sugar (given its particularities as different from coffee, tobacco, or other commodities); and how do both of these factors interplay with the social relations of everyday life?

Tehran Children is the true story of Polish-Jewish child refugees who escaped the Nazis and found refuge in Iran. Mikhal Dekel, the daughter of one of these children, spent eight years traveling five in countries and researching in twelve archives to write this account of Jewish refuge in Muslim lands. Blending memoir with historical research, Mikhal Dekel reveals a new Holocaust narrative: “one whose central image is not the concentration camp or the secret hiding place in the attic, but something much more disjointed: the constant fleeing from place to place, the shifting of allegiances and identity."

Lecture | Russian 20th Century Impressionism Through a Painter's Eye


Viktor Butko will introduce to you images of the important Russian Impressionists. It's a wonderful period to discover, with paintings full of life, light and bucolic simplicity. In particular, he will discuss the unique phenomenon of the Academic Dacha of Repin and the artists who created paintings there and went down in the history of Soviet art. Butko's grandfather, Viktor Chulovich was a first-ranked Social Realist and Viktor's first teacher. Butko also had the good fortune to study with the late Aleksei Gritsai. Viktor's is a story of coming of age in the end of the Soviet times, surrounded by the art of his forebears, their children and grandchildren. His unique life experience allows him to speak on artists that are of towering importance in Russia today, but hardly known on American soil. He will talk about the artists, not as an art historian but through the prism of his memories.

Lecture | Japan's Russia Policy Under the Abe Administration: Why Tokyo Does Not Share Washington's Threat Perception


On most international issues, Japan’s foreign policy broadly tracks that of its U.S. ally. However, there are exceptions. The clearest current example is Japan’s Russia policy under the Abe administration. While the U.S. National Security Strategy presents Russia as a revisionist power that presents a challenge to U.S. values and interests, Japan’s National Security Strategy highlights no concerns about Russia’s behaviour and stresses that “it is critical for Japan to advance cooperation with Russia in all areas.” Speaker James D.J. Brown is an associate professor of Political Science at Temple University, Japan Campus.

Opening Reception | 2 Art Shows: Nicole Cherubini / Fish Tank TV


Nicole Cherubini For her first solo show with the gallery, Cherubini places her large scale signature vessel-like sculptures in conversation with a new series of works cast from modernist chair shells. This striking juxtaposition addresses concepts of purpose, function and labor, while questioning the presence and absence of the viewer. The artist creates a social space of sort, where works stand as both symbol and signifier. Fish Tank TV An exhibition of recent paintings by JJ Manford. Utilizing a variety of textured supports including linen, couch upholstery, and burlap, Manford paints domestic interiors which flicker, vibrate, and glow, capturing light in a manner reminiscent of Impressionism. His compositions depict scenes and objects both real and imagined, combining things of personal value with an archive of curios the artist keeps catalogues. As such, the imagery mirrors the idea of memory itself, as a collection of real and falsified events and places.

Author Reading | Boss of the Grips: The Life of James H. Williams and the Red Caps of Grand Central Terminal


A long-overdue biography of the head of Grand Central Terminal's Red Caps, who flourished in the cultural nexus of Harlem and American railroads. Author Eric K. Washington uncovers the nearly forgotten life of James H. Williams (1878-1948), the chief porter of Grand Central Terminal's Red Caps-a multitude of Harlem-based black men whom he organized into the essential labor force of America's most august railroad station. Washington reveals that despite the highly racialized and often exploitative nature of the work, the Red Cap was a highly coveted job for college-bound black men determined to join New York's burgeoning middle class.

Opening Reception | Gray Matters: Moments of Tenderness and Turmoil


An exhibition of new paintings by Brian Cirmo. Like a novelist working in paint, Cirmo invites the viewer to witness his characters’ moments of tenderness and turmoil. Reading books or looking at photographs, or sitting with eyes closed, perhaps thinking or dreaming, the people in his interiors can be miles apart emotionally, but we still sense their need to be near each other. These large-scale paintings envelop the viewer in the visceral worlds Cirmo creates, while smaller scale portraits in the exhibition, set in snowy landscapes or on moon-lit beaches, offer moments of reflection. In Gray Matters, the color gray figures in many of the works, even those ablaze with luminous color, but Cirmo also asks viewers to think about the gray areas that we navigate in our relationships or in solitude.

Lecture | Aristotle's Concept of Matter and the Generation of Animals


There is a broad consensus that Aristotle introduced the concept of matter in order to develop a consistent account of substantial change. However, it is disputed which role matter fulfills in substantial change. According to the traditional interpretation, matter persists while taking on or losing a substantial form. According to a rival interpretation, matter does not persist in substantial change; instead, it is an entity from which a new substance can emerge and which ceases to exist in this process.   Speaker: Anna Schriefl, University of Bonn

“In this work, I try to understand the continued and constant self-immolations that are taking place in Tibet. I have found my mind increasingly occupied by these controversial acts. Both courageous and tragic, self-immolations challenge us, as witnesses, to either take action or to practice indifference. Consequently, these acts force us to define and redefine our individual and collective strengths/weaknesses based on our responses. How we respond defines not only myself, but also the world we live in.” – Tenzing Rigdol

Discussion | Race and Capitalism or Racial Capitalism? A Discussion on History, Theory, and World Building


In recent years, the inseparable procedures of racialization and capitalism have been magnified in the public eye. Scholarship has moved alongside debt crises and the ongoing profitability of punishment, and taken clues from social movements that have dramatized the connections between the dynamics of race, finance, extraction, selective success and economic immiseration. In this conversation we ask, what are some of the important hermeneutics used to understand and critique the intertwined processes of race and capital? What can two of the more powerful left-leaning critiques, the Movement for Black Lives and Modern Monetary Theory, learn from the other? Of what use is the concept of racial capitalism to both movements?

Lecture | Seeing Like a Real Utopian: Popular Sovereignty and Critical Social Science


This talk explores “methodological utopianism” -- the idea of assessing the social world for what it could be -- and some of its potential and limits for the critical social sciences. In addition to exploring some of the various intellectual traditions that have engaged in this approach, from the Black radical tradition to Latin American Marxism and even US-based pragmatism, it discusses at some length recent work in this vein, including the Real Utopias project associated with the late Erik Olin Wright.  It then discusses some of the blindspots of methodological utopianism before addressing the centrality of openness and reflexivity for such a social scientific research program. Speaker Gianpaolo Baiocchi is a sociologist and an ethnographer interested in questions of politics and culture, critical social theory, and cities.

Discussion | The Future of the European Union and the European Project


15 years ago, ten countries joined the European Union, making the bloc of 28 the second largest economy in the world and a co-pillar of the liberal international order and its collective security architecture. Today, the EU is contending with a multitude of political and economic challenges. Brexit, the rise of Eurosceptic, populist parties on the right and left, the lingering effects of the 2015 refugee crisis, rapid social and demographic changes, relations with Russia and China, the climate crisis, and a weakening transatlantic alliance have frayed political solidarities and demand a creative rethinking by the new EU leadership of the future shape and character of the bloc, including the possibility of a “multi-speed EU.” Headed for the first time by a woman, President-elect of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, what will the EU look like 15 years hence?

Discussion | Turning Around New York City's Buses


The knock against New York City bus service is that you can often walk faster than a bus can inch its way through thick city traffic. For New Yorkers who make nearly 2 million bus trips every day, this means long commutes, missed appointments, and less time with family and friends. It is no wonder bus ridership dropped 21% between 2002 and 2017. However, there is some cause for optimism. Advocates with the Bus Turnaround Coalition, led by TransitCenter, Riders Alliance, Tri-State Transportation Campaign, and Straphangers Campaign, are advancing a policy agenda to upgrade bus service citywide, and reforms implemented by NYCDOT and the MTA are starting to pay off. Performance and ridership have recently ticked up, and projects like the 14th Street busway are proving that a city with fast, reliable bus service is possible. But, there is still a lot of work ahead. This is a conversation will follow moderated by Tabitha Decker, Deputy Executive Director, TransitCenter and featuring Janet Jenkins, Assistant Commissioner, NYCDOT Transit Development; Mark Holmes, Chief Officer, MTA Department of Buses; and Stephanie Burgos-Veras, Senior Organizer, Riders Alliance.

Poetry Reading | Be Recorder: Times and Tongues


Be Recorder offers readers a blazing way forward into an as yet unmade world. The many times and tongues in these poems investigate the precariousness of personhood in lines that excoriate and sanctify. Carmen Giménez Smith turns the increasingly pressing urge to cry out into a dream of rebellion—against compromise, against inertia, against self-delusion, and against the ways the media dream up our complacency in an America that depends on it.

Lecture | Rage, Borders, Masculinity: The Political of Anger and the Politics of Affect in the New Rightist Movement


Against the background of a theory of political rage, the lecture develops the thesis that the imaginary of boundaries, of masculinity and the call for more rage and anger, as expressed from the political right, form a strong discursive (and historical) context. The unequivocal emotionalization on the part of the political right, which aims at fortifiability and 'male' impermeability, corresponds, according to the second thesis, to an uneqivocal emotionalization of the left, which makes one's own feelings absolute.

Forum | Going Big: Expanding Labor Rights for the 21st Century


Although union density is near an all-time low, labor activism has surged in many sectors. From adjunct faculty to video game developers, digital media workers, platform app drivers, and public school teachers, labor movement activism is growing in a number of key sectors. This is happening as many full-time jobs with benefits are disappearing, consumer/student debt is skyrocketing, the "gig economy" is expanding, and economic insecurity is increasing for American workers and families. Housing and child care costs - which heavily impact workers' income, wealth, and health - have also become more burdensome for many families. Under President Trump, a number of worker rights and protections have been weakened or denied. Featured speakers include: -- Randi Weingarten -- President of the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) -- Steven Greenhouse -- Veteran New York Times labor journalist and author of the new book, Beaten Down, Worked Up: The Past, Present, and Future of American Labor -- Vincent Alvarez -- President of the NYC Central Labor Council A light breakfast will be served.

Classical Music | Bach at Noon


The organ works of J.S. Bach (1685-1750) offered in 30-minute meditations. Johann Sebastian Bach was a German composer and musician of the Baroque period. He is known for instrumental compositions such as the Brandenburg Concertos and the Goldberg Variations as well as for vocal music such as the St. Matthew Passion and the Mass in B minor. Since the 19th-century Bach has been generally regarded as one of the greatest composers of all time. "The term 'baroque' has been widely used since the 19th century to describe the period in Western European art music from about 1600 to 1750... Many famous composers from the first part of the baroque period came from Italy and have a link with Venice, including Claudio Monteverdi and Antonio Vivaldi. Monteverdi was born in Cremona, but moved to Venice where he was 'maestro di capella' at the San Marco basilica. Vivaldi was born in Venice and was one of the greatest baroque composers. It is thanks to these strong musical traditions of Venice that we have today's music. Without Venetian church music and Monteverdi's advances with polyphony, the great traditions of choral music in England, France, and Germany would never have developed. Without the operas written by Monteverdi, Cavalli and Vivaldi, not only would the later styles of opera never have been invented. There would be no basis for the American Musical or the German and Viennese Operetta, the Spanish Zarzuela, and even rock, pop, and contemporary music as we know it." The Venice Insider Bach at Noon concerts take place every Tuesdays through Fridays, from September 10, 2019 to May 20, 2020.
