You will leave feeling more flexible, relaxed, energized, with a mantra that you can carry with you throughout the week. Please bring a yoga mat if you have one, and they do have some if you need to borrow one for the class. Also bring a journal and something to write with. You will be writing a few times during the class, and if you prefer to sketch or want to do both, that is fine. Wear comfortable clothing, and feel free to bring a warm or cool drink to keep you hydrated (with a secure lid). All levels are welcome. If you have never done yoga you will be able to participate as well.

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.

For over 100 years, the Beaux-Arts beauty known as Grand Central Terminal (a.k.a Station) has been a testament to the ingenuity and ambition of a great city, impressing both travelers and visitors with its wonderful architecture and pulsating vibe. Its history is a story of immense wealth, great engineering, a few accidents, a planned sabotage and one terrific ceiling, but most importantly a story of survival and rebirth.

On May 24, 1883, journalist Montgomery Schuyler said "It so happens that the work which is likely to be our most durable monument, and to convey some knowledge of us to the most remote posterity, is a work of bare utility; not a shrine, not a fortress, not a palace, but a bridge." This tour will tell the story of the world-famous Brooklyn Bridge, and examine its ever-present historical, technological, and cultural impact. Note: this tour is held early, as to avoid the massive crowds that the bridge continues to attract, 135 years after its completion.

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.

The more familiar stories from World War II are set on the front, in the battlefield or in the war rooms where the course of history was determined. But fiction gives us insight into the war’s more far-reaching effects. In Never Anyone But You, Rupert Thomson reimagines a true story of a bohemian lesbian couple who fled Paris and undertook dangerous subversion work in the German-occupied island of Jersey. And in The Railwayman’s Wife, Ashley Hay writes of the wife, the doctor and the poet, all transformed by post-war trauma in a small coastal town south of Sydney, in far away Australia. They talk about the lives the war irrevocably altered in ways that only the novelist can explore.

In 1846 a group of pioneers departed Independence, Missouri with their sights set on California. Sold the false promise of a shorter route, they became trapped in the Sierras during an especially harsh winter. Inspired by first person accounts, the tragic story of The Donner Party is reimagined to investigate the extreme choices people will make in order to survive. Text by Jeffry Denman & Joy Tomasko. Original Concept by Jeffry Denman. Note: Conceived as a dance-theatre piece, this presentation will be a reading of the full text, and dance will not be featured.  Donation is welcomed.

Pauline Chabert teaches organ at the Marc de Ranse Institute. She was the organist of the Cavaillé-Coll organ at the Church of Saint-Martin-des-Champs in Paris. About the Program Claude-Bénigne Balbastre was a French composer, organist, harpsichordist and fortepianist. He was one of the most famous musicians of his time. Balbastre's fame was so great that the Archbishop of Paris, Christophe de Beaumont had to forbid him to play at Saint Roch during some of the services, because the churches were always crowded when he played. Jehan Ariste Alain was a French organist and composer. He wrote choral music, including a Requiem mass, chamber music, songs and three volumes of piano music. But it is his organ music for which he is best known. His most famous work is Litanies, composed in 1937. Edvard Hagerup Grieg was a Norwegian composer and pianist. He is widely considered one of the leading Romantic era composers, and his music is part of the standard classical repertoire worldwide. His use and development of Norwegian folk music in his own compositions put the music of Norway in the international spectrum, as well as helping to develop a national identity.

About the Program In summer 1881 Franz Liszt composed a work that he called Valse oubliée (Forgotten waltz) in a letter to his publisher. The work is reminiscent of the appealing piano waltzes that the composer used to write when he was younger – although there is a certain distance to the usual waltz style. Liszt by no means renounces virtuosity and elegance, but rather infuses these characteristics with nostalgia and irony by embedding typical melodic and rhythmic elements of salon waltzes in innovative, harmonically alienating progressions. La plus que lente, L. 121 (The even slower waltz) by Claude Debussy was debuted at the New Carlton Hotel in Paris, where it was transcribed for strings and performed by a popular Romany band. Scriabin's Waltz in A flat Major, Op.38 opens with rich, Scriabin-esque theme that seems to exude heavy perfumes or remind the senses of flowers slightly wilting in the hot sun. The melody is sweet and leisurely, quirky and hesitant, but can suddenly turn passionate and fiery.This waltz will appeal not only to the composer's admirers, but to a fairly wide audience of piano music lovers.

It is here, as much as anywhere, where American history started. It's where the first US Congress assembled and produced the Bill of Rights and where President George Washington took his first oath of office. It's here where the world's most important stock exchange and one of the most famous bridges stand. And it is here where an unspeakable tragedy took place and where a rebirth is underway.

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 at 10am and 11am.

Book Reading |
The book tells the story of the world’s most audacious infrastructure project, an attempt to colonize and connect a dynamic, newly assertive region. Three decades after Paul Theroux dubbed China’s lumbering railway the Iron Rooster, the country’s network of high-speed trains is the envy of the world. Now, China is working to push those tracks into Southeast Asia, reviving a century-old colonial fantasy of an imperial railroad from China to Singapore. The talk is given by the book's author Will Doig, who has worked as Next City's (a national urban affairs magazine) international editor,  a columnist at Salon, an editor at The Daily Beast, a lecturer at the New School, and a communications staffer at the Open Society Foundations.

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.

Since 2014, the city of Shenzhen in the South of China has been seen as a rising hub of innovation, a so-called “Hollywood for Makers” and “Silicon Valley of Hardware.” Media stories took up an idea that open source hardware advocates had been promoting for several years: that the city of Shenzhen had become crucial for the realization of one of the key promises of the maker movement, i.e. to prototype concrete alternatives to the pitfalls of the information society and contemporary capitalism. Just a couple years earlier, Shenzhen was largely known as a place of copycats and fakes that lacked creativity where ideas created elsewhere were simply executed and mass produced. What happened within the timespan of only a few years that changed Shenzhen’s image from demonstrating China’s continuous lag in technology innovation towards a place where alternatives to neoliberal capitalism could be prototype? Speaker Silvia Lindtner is with the University of Michigan.

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.

The dominant discourse about a “crisis of attention” depicts the new generations as scatterbrains doomed to evaporate in pathological distraction. There certainly are good reasons for most of us to feel overwhelmed by an excess of solicitations. In its current path of development, the capitalist mediarchy generates ecocidal and egocidal conditions of ubiquitous competition which dramatically drain our attentional resources.

This talk examines historical crime and detective fiction set against the background of Italy’s colonies in East Africa. Furthermore, it aims at investigating a tension within the tradition of Italian crime fiction, and, more specifically, of historical crime fiction. On the one hand, by shedding light into the darker corners of Italy’s past, the genre aims at serving as a sort of “new social novel”; on the other, the conventions of detective fiction can hamper the reconstruction of complex experiences such as that of the Italian “impresa coloniale”.

Insulted by the regent of France, Britain’s King Henry V decides to wage war and claim the throne across the Channel. But Henry’s charm only distracts the soldiers for so long before the dire stakes of their task calls into question the King’s true motives and direction. Resonating from across the centuries—wherever there may be a kingdom for a stage, and royalty to act—Shakespeare’s drama about invasion, ego and leadership delves into history’s thorniest questions: What makes a person worthy of wearing the crown, and what do they owe the people they lead? Obie Award-winning director Robert O’Hara (Bootycandy, The Brother/Sister Plays (Part 2)) brings a warring King and his band of brothers to  New York City.

Lecture |
A number of policy reforms in post-Soviet countries and beyond have been conducted within the framework of the technocratic model. Policy proposals have been developed and to some extent implemented by certain teams of professionals appointed by legitimate political leaders. The leaders, in turn, have tended to monopolize policy adoption and evaluation and to insulate the substance of reforms from public opinion. Vladimir Gel'man's presentation will present a critical reassessment of the technocratic model of policy-making in the context of the post-Soviet changes of the 1990s–2010s.

Welcome Miss Ida Keeling, the 102-year-old, world-record-holding runner. Miss Ida, as she’s affectionately known throughout her community, isn’t your typical runner. At 102-years-old, her fierce independence helped her through the Depression and the Civil Rights movement as a single mother to four children living in New York City. But her greatest trials were yet to come. Ida’s two sons were brutally murdered. Justice was never found. Miss Ida felt she didn’t have the strength to carry on, and that she couldn’t hope anymore. Miss Ida will be in conversation Alison Desir, founder of Harlem Run.

The cities are blue and among the most diverse in the nation. Oil is still king but Texas now leads California in technology exports.

How can we define the elusive quality of "Italian-ness" in music? This discussion group gives voice and vocabulary to our intuitions about Italian music, both instrumental and vocal. You'll listen to music from the sublime Palestrina, pinnacle of the Italian Renaissance; through Monteverdi, Lulli, Cherubini, Puccini, Respighi and more; to John Corigliano and our modern world, naming Italian characteristics and asking whether they stand the test of time. What Makes It Italian is a music listening and discussion group that is open to everyone. Attendance at all meetings, which take place on Tuesdays from April 10 to May 15, is encouraged, as the discussions are cumulative. Led by Gina Crusco, who also guides listening at the Riverdale Y, formerly music instructor at The New School and director of Underworld Productions Opera.

Resonating from across the centuries—wherever there may be a kingdom for a stage, and royalty to act—Shakespeare’s drama about invasion, ego and leadership delves into history’s thorniest questions: What makes a person worthy of wearing the crown, and what do they owe the people they lead? Obie Award-winning director Robert O’Hara (Bootycandy, The Brother/Sister Plays (Part 2)) brings a warring King and his band of brothers to communities all across New York with Mobile Unit’s spring production of Henry V.

The real story of what happened in the 2016 election, told through the dishy, rollicking, deeply personal story of one New York Times journalist's career covering the First Woman President who wasn't. For a decade, award-winning New York Times Amy Chozick chronicled Hillary Clinton's pursuit of the presidency. Chozick's front-row seat took her to 48 states and set off a time in which her formative years became -- both personally and professionally -- intrinsically intertwined to Clinton's presidential ambitions. Chasing Hillary is a campaign book like never before.

Discussed by Meriah DeJoseph, who has BS in cognitive neuroscience from UCSD and an MA in psychology from Columbia University. How the brain adapts to care for a newborn, and how a baby’s cry can control adult behavior.

About the Program The Piano Sonata in A major D. 664, Op. posth. 120 was composed by Franz Schubert in the summer of 1819. The manuscript was dedicated to Josephine von Koller of Steyr in Upper Austria, whom he considered to be "very pretty" and "a good pianist." The lyrical nature of this sonata fits the image of a young Schubert in love, living in a summery Austrian countryside, which he also considered to be "unimaginably lovely". Carl Vine is an Australian composer of contemporary classical music. From 1975 he has worked as a pianist and composer with a variety of theatre and dance companies, and ensembles. Vine's catalogue includes seven symphonies, eleven concertos, music for film, television and theatre and many more. Piano Sonata No. 2, Op. 36, was composed by Sergei Rachmaninoff in 1913. When he performed the piece at its premiere in Moscow, it was well received. However, Rachmaninoff himself was not satisfied with the work. He felt that too much in the piece was superfluous.Thus, in 1931, the composer commenced work on a revision, which included shortening and removing some technical difficulties. George Percy Aldridge Grainger was an Australian-born composer, arranger and pianist. In the course of a long and innovative career, he played a prominent role in the revival of interest in British folk music in the early years of the 20th century.  Although much of his work was experimental and unusual, the piece with which he is most generally associated is his piano arrangement of the folk-dance tune "Country Gardens".

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.

The hustle and bustle of the streets induced the City to elevate the railroad trains delivering goods to the commercial buildings.

Imagine the impact on the lives of workers and their families if an employer provided elegant housing, child care facilities flooded with natural light, and recreation zones with innovative regional planning, all supported by an abbreviated work week. This was Adriano Olivetti’s modern Italy. Architectural historian Kay Bea Jones will discuss the golden years of Adriano Olivetti's (1933-1960) typewriter company, his vision of a democratic modern society and the essential role of design in creating community.

Farris’s book explores the ways in which feminist ideas are often exploited by anti-Islam and xenophobic campaigns. She coins the term “femonationalism” to describe the practice and claims that, by characterising Muslim men as oppressors and by emphasising the need to rescue Muslim women, these anti-Islam groups use gender equality to justify their prejudice. Sara R. Farris is Associate Professor in Sociology at Goldsmiths, University of London.

The Times' A.O. Scott says viewers “will find solace, enlightenment and surprise in João Moreira Salles’s In the Intense Now, a bittersweet, ruminative documentary essay composed of footage from the era of the 1960s, accompanied by thoughtful, disarmingly personal voice-over narration. Some of the images — and virtually the only ones in color — come from Mr. Salles’s own archives… and they punctuate a main narrative devoted to the ‘events of May’ in France. Mr. Salles offers both fresh visual material and a gently revisionist interpretation of events.” 127 min.

On May 24, 1883, journalist Montgomery Schuyler said "It so happens that the work which is likely to be our most durable monument, and to convey some knowledge of us to the most remote posterity, is a work of bare utility; not a shrine, not a fortress, not a palace, but a bridge." This tour will tell the story of the world-famous Brooklyn Bridge, and examine its ever-present historical, technological, and cultural impact. Note: this tour is held early, as to avoid the massive crowds that the bridge continues to attract, 135 years after its completion.

Library President Anthony Marx brings together political analysts from the right and left to ask what the future holds for American democracy and for democracies around the world. With: - Peter Beinart, contributing editor at The Atlantic and associate professor of journalism and political science at the City University of New York - Jonah Goldberg, senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute and senior editor at National Review Experts across the political spectrum agree: it is not certain how democratic societies will survive the rise of illiberal leaders, populists, and nationalists. Consensus falls apart when they try to answer why that uncertainty exists and how it might be erased.

A new book pulls back the curtain on the life of a style icon. Bunny Mellon, the American aristocrat who designed the White House Rose Garden for her friend JFK, served as a living witness to 20th Century American history, operating in the high-level arenas of politics, diplomacy, art and fashion. Mellon, who died in 2014 at age 103, was famously press-shy during her lifetime. With the cooperation of Bunny Mellon's family, author Meryl Gordon accessed thousands of pages of Mellon's personal archive; she also conducted over one hundred interviews with Mellon's friends and colleagues.

Obie Award-winning director Robert O’Hara (Bootycandy, The Brother/Sister Plays (Part 2).) brings a warring King and his band of brothers to New York City. Insulted by the regent of France, Britain’s King Henry V decides to wage war and claim the throne across the Channel. But Henry’s charm only distracts the soldiers for so long before the dire stakes of their task calls into question the King’s true motives and direction. Resonating from across the centuries—wherever there may be a kingdom for a stage, and royalty to act—Shakespeare’s drama about invasion, ego and leadership delves into history’s thorniest questions: What makes a person worthy of wearing the crown, and what do they owe the people they lead?

In 1994, she and her fifteen-year-old sister, Claire, fled the Rwandan massacre and spent the next six years migrating through seven African countries, searching for safety--perpetually hungry, imprisoned and abused, enduring and escaping refugee camps, finding unexpected kindness, witnessing inhuman cruelty.

A special event about Filipinx-American history, migration, queerness, and the elusive goal of cracking the American Dream for working-class immigrants. Elaine Castillo’s debut America is Not the Heart is a vibrant and starkly hilarious novel told through the perspective of different members of the De Vera family, who flee Marcos-era Philippines in stages for the immigrant suburbs of the Bay Area, and the title a riff on of Carlos Bulosan’s social classic about the life of a migrant Filipino farm worker. She will be joined by writer, journalist and poet Luis H. Francia, who will read from his introduction to the Philippine’s version of Bulosan’s text, and recent poems about police violence and Duterte. They will be joined by Kundiman co-founder Joseph O. Legaspi, the author of Threshold, a collection of poetry, and moderator Gina Apostol, the author of Gun Dealer’s Daughter.

The term gained popularity during the graffiti art boom of the early 1980s and continues to be applied to subsequent incarnations. Stencil graffiti, wheat pasted poster art or sticker art, and street installation or sculpture are common forms of modern street art.

Grammy-nominated choir of Trinity Wall Street; NOVUS NY, orchestra; Julian Wachner, conductor; John McVeigh, Metropolitan Opera tenor; Stephen Salters, baritone.  Program  Copland (1900-1990)/ Bernstein (1918-1990) El Salon Mexico (1936) Mahler (1860-1911) Das Lied von der Erde (1909) Snider Mass for the Endangered (World Premiere) About the Performers Grammy-nominated interpreters of both early and new music, The Choir of Trinity Wall Street has changed the realm of 21st-century vocal music, breaking new ground with an artistry described as “blazing with vigour…a choir from heaven” (The Times). The ensemle has been described as “thrilling” (New Yorker), “musically top-notch” (Wall Street Journal), and “simply superb” (New York Times). Metropolitan Opera tenor John McVeigh has appeared at the Lincoln Center, Kennedy Center, and many more venues. NOVUS NY is Trinity Church Wall Street’s contemporary music orchestra, under the leadership of Trinity’s Director of Music, Julian Wachner. Hailed by the New Yorker as “expert and versatile musicians,” its members perform new music from all corners of the repertoire, meeting “every challenge with an impressive combination of discipline and imagination” (New York Classical Review). Music director Julian Wachner has been variously described as “jazzy, energetic, and ingenious,” (Boston Globe), having “splendor, dignity, outstanding tone combinations, sophisticated chromatic exploration…a rich backdrop, wavering between a glimmer and a tingle...,” (La Scena Musicale) being “a compendium of surprises,” (Washington Post) and as “bold and atmospheric,” while having “an imaginative flair for allusive text setting,” and noted for “the silken complexities of his harmonies” (New York Times). He has made guest appearances with such major organizations as the San Francisco, New York City, and Glimmerglass Opera, the New York and Hong Kong Philharmonic and many more. Baritone Stephen Salters has been described by The New York Times as “…a man of thorough confidence, huge charm, and a vocal allure that come brimming off the stage…an ability to communicate gentleness and power with the same immediacy”. About the Program El Salón México is a symphonic composition by Aaron Copland, which uses Mexican folk music extensively. Leonard Bernstein and Copland himself conducted recordings of the work. Arturo Toscanini and the NBC Symphony Orchestra performed the music in a broadcast concert on March 14, 1942. Das Lied von der Erde (English: The Song of the Earth) is a composition for two voices and orchestra written by the Austrian composer Gustav Mahler. Mahler composed this work following the most painful period in his life, and the songs address themes such as those of living, parting and salvation. On the centenary of Mahler's birth, the composer and prominent Mahler conductor Leonard Bernstein described Das Lied von der Erde as Mahler's "greatest symphony". Snider's Mass for the Endangered elegizes species on the brink of extinction, as a 'requiem for the not-yet-gone'. The Mass was commissioned by Trinity Wall Street, under the auspices of their Mass Reimaginings initiative.

This is the first class of five on the social history of food and families in Postwar America, focusing on the personal, lived-experiences of people. It will focus on the role of different food products and experiences in everyday life, including: the introduction of convenience foods into home kitchens; gendered and racialized approaches to advertising food products; a burgeoning restaurant landscape including McDonald’s and Howard Johnsons; and newly organized school lunch programs. It will also discuss the deep nostalgia that surrounds this particular period in American history, asking ourselves “what do these foods and this time period really mean to us today?” The subsequent dates of the course are May 3, 17, 24, and 31. Speaker Shayne Leslie Figueroa is a doctoral fellow in the Food Studies program at New York University. Her dissertation work is a social history of the school lunch program in New York City during the postwar period.

Unfolding across all three floors of the location, A Luta Continua is the first United States presentation of the Sylvio Perlstein Collection. Over the course of more than five decades, Perlstein has assembled an intensely personal collection rooted in a passion for the work of groundbreaking artists; a commitment to self-education; and an affinity for a wide range of mediums. Remarkably diverse, the collection traces the course of twentieth-century art, from Dada and Surrealism to Abstraction, Land Art, Conceptual Art, Minimal Art, Pop Art, Op Art, Arte Povera, Nouveau Réalisme, and Contemporary Art. But above all, ‘A Luta Continua’ testifies to the power of connoisseurship and to collecting as a talent – an art in itself – that must be honed through sustained, sometimes courageous, and often joyful personal effort.

Concentrating on the explosive nature of Berkenblit’s line, the film features familiar motifs from her paintings and drawings: a long-nosed female, a tiger, a stiletto. Also interlaced throughout the film are photographs of Berkenblit’s family and images taken by her father, who was an amateur photographer and chemist. The result is a film that combines Berkenblit’s life with her work, an intimate look at what drives the artist’s practice. Organized by Brett Littman, Executive Director.

Lecture |
The most popular feminist philosophical response to questions about the intractability of sexist interpretations of women’s experience—on the part of all genders, women included—is the that women’s reports of their run-ins with sexism routinely fail to achieve broad social uptake (“testimonial injustice”) and that women also often lack the concepts that allow them to articulate in an efficacious way their inchoate sense of having experienced sexist harms (“hermeneutical injustice”).  In this talk, Nancy Bauer construes this response, originally articulated by Miranda Fricker and tweaked by many other feminist philosophers, as at bottom a sophisticated version of the popular—but ultimately not very convincing—claim that we seem to be at a tipping point because lots of women celebrities are now accusing male celebrities of harassment. She finds a better way of making sense of what’s going on by construing the power of the viral “#metoo” hashtag to induce a Gestalt shift in our interpretation of what J. L. Austin called “the total speech act in the total situation.”

Celina Su and Youmna Chlala launch their respective debut poetry collections, questioning of spatial practices, architecture and cities as they relate to language, visuality, and literature. Both author's poetry intersects with their artistic and academic practices in multiple ways along the lines of race, translation, movement, and displacement. Chlala's collection The Paper Camera (Litmus Press) is about the language as the object that mediates and records memory, longing, loss, and love, notates light and translates between body and space. Su's collection Landia (Belladonna* Series) excavates literal and figurative borderlands—redrawn boundaries, architectural palimpsests, underground transport systems—to reckon with the historical and cultural forces that shape our cities and our intimate lives.

This new translation makes The Buffoons available to Anglophone readers for the first time. Published in 1641, this burlesque play by by Margherita Costa (c. 1600-c. 1657) depicts the mismatched sexual desires of a prince and princess. Although set in northern Africa, the comedy satirizes the Florentine court of Grand Duke Ferdinando II de' Medici, one of Costa's several elite patrons. By featuring the clownish antics of an unconventional cast of dwarfs, hunchbacks, and buffoons, it reflects the bizarre appetites and grotesque entertainments of the day. Ribald puns and commedia dell'arte-inspired slapstick abound, presenting the reader with a comic alternative to decorous women's writing in early modern Italy. With editors / translators: Sara Dìaz (Fairfield University) Jessica Goethals (University of Alabama) and Suzanne Cusick Scene Reading by Richard Dent and Ali Sohaili

Insulted by the regent of France, Britain’s King Henry V decides to wage war and claim the throne across the Channel. But Henry’s charm only distracts the soldiers for so long before the dire stakes of their task calls into question the King’s true motives and direction. Resonating from across the centuries—wherever there may be a kingdom for a stage, and royalty to act—Shakespeare’s drama about invasion, ego and leadership delves into history’s thorniest questions: What makes a person worthy of wearing the crown, and what do they owe the people they lead? Obie Award-winning director Robert O’Hara (Bootycandy, The Brother/Sister Plays (Part 2)) brings a warring King and his band of brothers to communities all across New York with Mobile Unit’s spring production of Henry V.

The rise of right-wing populism around the globe, but particularly in the United States, the United Kingdom and Europe, has occasioned a return to the concept of the “Authoritarian Personality.” It needs to be critically evaluated. One of the key early criticisms of the concept was that it focused exclusively on right-wing authoritarianism while over-looking a corresponding authoritarianism of the Left. Speaker Samir Gandesha is Associate Professor in the Department of the Humanities and the Director of the Institute for the Humanities at Simon Fraser University, in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Conference |
This graduate student conference is on the concept, history, practices and implications of radical democracy. If the preconditions for the rise of the far-right, xenophobia, white supremacy, ethno-nationalism, right-wing populism, religious fundamentalism and fascism can be found within liberal democracy and neo-liberalism, laying bare the violent foundations of the liberal democratic project, then what hope can theories of radical democracy offer toward re-founding society on democratic principles? How have the rise of social movements such as Occupy, the Arab Spring, Rojava, Black Lives Matter, Standing Rock, 15M, AntiFa, and the emergence of left alternatives such as Podemos, MAS and Syriza both exposed the contradictions of institutionalism, capitalism, rule of law, deliberation and other aspects of liberal democracy, and also illuminated the need for radical democratic alternatives?

Conference |
Through interdisciplinary panels and breakout sessions, the Conference on Cities, Climate and Migration will highlight challenges facing cities in the U.S. (particularly coastal cities such as New York), examine issues of social justice in planning responses, and explore the role of cities as actors on the national and global level. The event will feature influential speakers; including leading academics, policymakers and climate change experts. Climate change and natural disasters are fundamental drivers of migration and will grow in importance in the future. Urban areas will be particularly affected by environmental events, resulting in the migration of large numbers of persons into and out of cities. Such migration will produce challenges relating to shelter, public services, social cohesion and social justice—putting the world’s urban areas on the frontline of efforts for response and adaptation.

Discussion |
In recent years, the Maghreb and the Middle East entered a phase of upheavals and transformations, which shifted from the imagination of possible new worlds to repression, restoration, and the catastrophic annihilation of forms of life. Yet for a time, the uprisings reopened the circulation of desire–a desire for mobility across the African continent and the Mediterranean. That desire forced a breach into the European order and its proliferating walls. In that confrontation on many fronts, known as the “European refugee crisis” (but whose crisis?) Europe’s “managed inhospitality”, its “smart” borders at sea, and its hybrid articulation of military and humanitarian border security resulted in the death of thousands. Images of bodies floating on the Mediterranean or washed ashore, of “asylum seekers” waiting on train tracks or tear gassed along the so-called Balkan route, or welcomed in Austria and Germany (only to be soon be rejected again) flooded the world media in 2015 and 2016. How might this recent history be seen and accounted for otherwise? Anthropologist Stefania Pandolfo and film director Leila Kilani reflect on borders, sovereignty, and dreams, on migration “in anamorphosis”, in an ongoing conversation based on their respective ethnographic and cinematographic work on the passion and counter-image of Burning, its mythical, theological, and prophetic imaginations, its proximity of life and death, and what it enables as transfiguration and critique. They will discuss their beginning collaboration on the “other side” of that journey, from the peripheral shore of Southern Sardinia, with its own history of internal Italian migration, disaffected mining, and dispossession, in its encounter with the in-appropriable histories, and vital “intrusion” of Sub-Saharan and other “asylum seekers”.
