Discussion | Green Colonialism: Geopolitics, Global Justice and Ecosocial Transitions


Beneath the sustainability branding lurk new environmental injustices and green colonialism. The green growth and clean energy plans of the Global North require the large-scale extraction of strategic minerals from the Global South. The geopolitics of transition imply sacrificing not only territories, but truly sustainable ways of inhabiting this world. A new subordination in the global energy economy prevents societies in the South from developing sovereign strategies to foster a dignified life. The speakers will address the specifics of this new green colonialism and the alternatives being constructed by activists and policymakers in the Global South in coordination with allies in the Global North.

Lecture | My Own Atlantis and the Anthropocene in Russian Comics (in-person and online)


St. Petersburg artist Olga Lavrenteva’s sprawling 2023 graphic novel My Own Atlantis is many things — rollicking treasure hunt, tragicomic reflection on classic Russian literature/history — all anchored by the work’s setting: the Karelian Isthmus. This region, fought over for centuries by the Swedes, Finns, Russians and indigenous peoples, is Lavrenteva’s home. She invests the novel with her affection and admiration for the area’s cultural, historical and ecological complexity. Ironically, coincident with My Own Atlantis’ production and publication there emerged a new threat to the isthmus: a massive government-sponsored infrastructure project, the Primorsky Universal Transshipment Complex. Environmentalist activists — including Lavrenteva — protested what they see as the thoughtless development of a diverse ecosystem. In this talk professor José Alaniz, author of Resurrection: Comics in Post-Soviet Russia (2022), discusses My Own Atlantis as an example of modern environmentalist Russian comics in the Anthropocene.

She tries to resist, but Ronny lost his hand in an accident he blames on his brother, and has no scruples about aggressively pursuing her while Johnny is out of the country.

Director: Norman Jewison Cast: Cher, Nicolas Cage, Vincent Gardenia, Olympia Dukakis, Danny Aiello Cher is an American singer, actress, and television personality.

Book Discussion | The Hebrew Teacher:  3 Israeli Women in Crisis


Israeli author Maya Arad discusses her first book translated into English with Joshua Cohen, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Netanyahus. Three Israeli women, their lives altered by immigration to the United States, seek to overcome crises. Ilana is a veteran Hebrew instructor at a Midwestern college who has built her life around her career. When a young Hebrew literature professor joins the faculty, she finds his post-Zionist politics pose a threat to her life's work. Miriam, whose son left Israel to make his fortune in Silicon Valley, pays an unwanted visit to meet her new grandson and discovers cracks in the family's perfect façade. Efrat, another Israeli in California, is determined to help her daughter navigate the challenges of middle school, and crosses forbidden lines when she follows her into the minefield of social media. In these three stirring novellas—comedies of manners with an ambitious blend of irony and sensitivity—celebrated Israeli author Maya Arad probes the demise of idealism and the generation gap that her heroines must confront.

Discussion | The Politics of Friendship: On Muses, Audiences, and the Art of Public Writing with Pulitzer-prize-winning writers


A conversation between Pulitzer-prize-winning writers and lifelong friends Hua Hsu and Salamishah Tillet as they discuss their paths and the formation of their respective commitments, their process of navigating different genres of writing, and the lessons they've learned from each other and others about voice, style, and structure. They will consider how the category of the "public intellectual," a figure which loomed large when they were in graduate school together, has evolved over the past decade, with the emergence of new forms of online writing and criticism, the contraction of mainstream journalism, and the rise of "hybrid" academics addressing different audiences simultaneously.

Screening | String Trio, Los Angeles 1946: documentary about one of the 20th century's most important and influential composers


A celebration of Arnold Schoenberg (1874-1951), one of the 20th century's most important and influential composers. The event will feature the New York City premiere of a film by David Starobin, String Trio, Los Angeles 1946, a documentary about Schoenberg. In August of 1946, Schoenberg's heart stopped beating. He composed "String Trio" immediately after his recuperation to try and describe his brush with death. The documentary looks back at Schoenberg's 1933 departure from Nazi Germany, his career, and the composer's years in Los Angeles. In the film Gertrud and Arnold Schoenberg's three children, Nuria, Ronald, and Lawrence comment about their memories of their father, and well-known director Peter Sellars and violist Kim Kashkashian speak about the "String Trio." After the film, there will be a panel discussion.

Concert | Brass Quartet Performs Music by Randy Newman, Woody Guthrie, and More


The Westerlies (Riley Mulherkar, Chloe Rowlands, trumpet; Andy Clausen, Addison Maye-Saxon, trombone) perform the music of John Prine, Randy Newman, Woody Guthrie, the Golden Gate Quartet, originals and more! About the Performers The Westerlies, “an arty quartet…mixing ideas from jazz, new classical, and Appalachian folk” (New York Times) are a New York-based brass quartet. From Carnegie Hall to Coachella, The Westerlies navigate a wide array of venues and projects with the precision of a string quartet, the audacity of a rock band, and the charm of a family sing-along. Formed in 2011, the self-described “accidental brass quartet” takes its name from the prevailing winds that travel from the West to the East. “Skilled interpreters who are also adept improvisers” (NPR’s Fresh Air), The Westerlies explore jazz, roots, and chamber music influences to create the rarest of hybrids: music that is both "folk-like and composerly, lovely and intellectually rigorous” (NPR Music).

When the new guy's lowbrow tactics impinge on his own work, Jamieson resolves to get rid of him.

Book Discussion | The Consultant’s Compass: Navigating Success with Courage, Curiosity, and Compassion


Have you ever wondered about the enigmatic world of consultancy and whether it might be the right fit for you? If the title ‘consultant’ has ever piqued your curiosity, then this book is your passport into that realm. Drawing from firsthand experience, the author takes us on a journey from initial skepticism to eventual admiration for consultants. With a memorable encounter as the pivot, she recalls an old colleague’s dismissive description of consultants: “They ask you for your watch and then tell you the time.” Yet, her personal experience was vastly different. She met a consultant who was insightful, engaged, and who connected the dots in a way that seemed effortlessly brilliant. So, what is a consultant? Dr. Mary Cianni's book delves into the various shades of consultancy, busting myths and reshaping perceptions. While traditional definitions, like Schein’s 2016 explanation, depict consultants as mere distant experts, the book advocates a more modern and relevant perspective: Consultants as partners and helpers.

Lecture | Corporate Power in the Age of AI and the Cloud


The world’s largest corporations are predators. While some profit from extracting nature, the rest appropriate knowledge and information far and wide. They capture all sorts of intangibles produced with and by other organizations and turn them into assets that they mobilize in multiple and complementary ways to capture value, among them, from global value chains, franchises and platforms. They even steer the production of new science and technology. These resulting spheres of global control and accumulation that span beyond the assets of each big corporation are not silos. Powerful corporations co-evolve, establishing economic power relations also among themselves; unequal relations that have been exacerbated as digital technologies, led by big data and artificial intelligence, push them all to become Amazon, Microsoft and Google clients. Giants like BlackRock, Coca Cola, Disney, L’Oréal, ICBC, McDonalds, Nestlé, Pfizer, Siemens, Toyota, TSMC, Visa, Walmart and many more became active players in the harvesting and analysis of data with artificial intelligence by relying on Big Tech cloud services. All the former are frenemies of and strategically subordinate to Big Tech in order to crunch big data to control those further below. Failing in building their corporate digital twin means losing grounds at a time when precisely Big Tech are entering every sector, from healthcare to finance.

Talk | A Future in Ruins, Or, How To Make Theater After the End of the World


We seem to have arrived at the end--be it the end of democracy, of humanity, or of a livable planet. Living under this impression, theatre makers have started to question theatre's ability to still be relevant in our present and have begun to search for new aesthetics and modes of production vis-?-vis the experience of end-times. This talk focuses on theatrical aesthetics that have started to evolve in the German-language theatrical landscape since the 1970s as a reaction to the experience of living at the end of the world. Analyzing the theatre of Heiner M?ller, Elfriede Jelinek, and others, Teresa Kovacs will sketch the beginning of a 'theatre of the void' that understands catastrophe not as an endpoint after which there is mere nothingness, but as a realm of potential and possibility. Such a theatre, Kovacs argues, allows interesting insights into how to find radical futurities in the midst of a planet in ruins. Speaker Teresa Kovacs is Assistant Professor at the Department of Germanic Studies at Indiana University.

Book Discussion | Climate Capitalism: Winning the Race to Zero Emissions and Solving the Crisis of Our Age


Our age will be defined by the climate emergency. But contrary to the doomist narrative that’s taken hold, the world has already begun deploying the solutions needed to deal with it. On a journey across five continents, Akshat Rathi's Climate Capitalism tracks the unlikely heroes driving the fight against climate change. From the Chinese bureaucrat who did more to make electric cars a reality than Elon Musk to the Indian entrepreneur showing how to deploy solar on a tight budget, we meet the people working to scale technologies that are finally able to bend the emissions curve. Through stories that bring people, policy and technology together, Akshat Rathi reveals how the green economy is not only possible, but profitable. This inspiring blend of business, science, and history provides the framework for ensuring that future generations can live in prosperity and that the wheels of progress don’t falter.

Book Discussion | Fifth Avenue--Architecture and Society: History of America's Street of Dreams


Fifth Avenue, America's 'Street of Dreams,' embodies New York's evolving architectural, urban, and social history. Present on the 1807 Commissioners' map emerging from a country road, then in the proposed grid plan of 1811 as one of the major boulevards, Fifth Avenue by the end of the 19th century had become synonymous with a lavish fashionable life, grand mansions, and services catering to the wealthy. As in her previous books, The Villard Houses and Triumvirate: McKim Mead & White: Art, Architecture, Scandal and Class in America's Golden Age, Mosette Broderick gives life to the glamorous stages of New York society. In her book, she also tracks the street's shifting fortunes as fashion, hotels, and apartment towers bring a new skyline to the elite environs.

Book Discussion | The Work of Art: How Something Comes from Nothing


From former editor of New York magazine Adam Moss presents a collection of illuminating conversations examining the very personal, rigorous, complex, and elusive work of making art. What is the work of art? In this guided tour inside the artist’s head, Adam Moss traces the evolution of transcendent novels, paintings, jokes, movies, songs, and more. Weaving conversations with some of the most accomplished artists of our time together with the journal entries, napkin doodles, and sketches that were their tools, Moss breaks down the work—the tortuous paths and artistic decisions—that led to great art. From first glimmers to second thoughts, roads not taken, crises, breakthroughs, on to one triumphant finish after another.

Discussion | What Makes It Italian?: Mixed Media (online)


"What Makes It Italian?" is a music listening and discussion group. The fourth encounter will focus on Mixed Media (part 2): Composer Francesco Bianchi (1752 - 1810) with sculptor Antonio Canova (1757 - 1822) When are marble sculpture - and music - all about the surface, and does this make them superficial? How can our understanding of italianita? in music be informed by Italian sculpture? The insubstantial nature of musical materials - mere vibrations that move through the air, imperceptible to sight and touch - creates in us a longing for an analog made of solid material. In sculpture we have just such an analog: run your hand across the carved wood; feel the heat radiating from the bronze; watch the light play off the marble surface. Find the substance of Italian music by exploring its relationship to the substance/s of sculpture, one medium at a time.

Film | Free Women (2017): Feminism and the Italian Resistance


Through valuable archive material and the real voices of female partisans, this film tells the story of the role of young women - most of them teenagers - at the time of the Italian Resistance. This period marked the birth of feminism in Italy and in other European Countries, where the struggle for liberation was also the fight for female emancipation and the pursuit of freedom and equality, in the family and in the workplace. How did they participate in the Resistance and in these political battles? What happened after the Liberation? Were expectations fulfilled and promises maintained? Their reflections, lucid, ironic, sometimes bitter, reveal a piece of our forgotten history. They make us reflect on the role of women today and on the conquests yet to be achieved.

Book Discussion | Why We Die: The New Science of Aging and the Quest for Immortality (in-person and online)


Nobel Prize-winning author Venki Ramakrishnan and Titia de Lange, Director of the Anderson Center for Cancer Research at The Rockefeller University in a discussion that will unveil the strides science has made in understanding aging and longevity--and Ramakrishnan's new book. Unraveling the universal human fear of death, Ramakrishnan traces our historical attempts to evade its inevitability--from religious afterlife beliefs to the existential realization in childhood that all we cherish is short-lived. He guides readers through the cutting-edge research shaping our understanding of mortality and raises the tantalizing possibility of extending our lifespan exponentially. As he navigates the recent breakthroughs in altering physiology to extend life, he contemplates life, and the biological purpose of death, and probes the social and ethical implications of pursuing immortality.

The Outside/In ensemble creates community, connection and supports self-expression, providing rituals for success in the form of twice annual performances. Please come out and support the incredible ensemble as they present The Perspective Project. What is Outside/In? Stella Adler Arts Justice Division, created in 2001, identified a new strategic goal in 2013: to disrupt the school-to-prison pipeline. Arts Justice soon became the leading arts program provider at Rikers Island Correctional Facility. As students were released from jail, we wanted the program to support them during their re-entry transition. Outside/In was created to allow students to continue the vital work that began inside rehabilitation and to support their transition to daily civilian life. Today Outside/In is a transitional company of 100 members who create new, short works inspired by their personal experiences and current social issues. Returning citizens who have previously been incarcerated and people in residential addiction recovery programs are eligible for Outside/In. Conservatory students and alumni who have a deeply vested interest in art, theater and social good may volunteer to support the ensemble.

Discussion | Managing Climate Risks: Financial Alternatives and Infrastructure (in-person and online)


Much of the current discussion of climate risk focuses on large-scale strategic change and public policy. However, the effects of climate change are already being seen today in essential sectors of the financial markets. Insurance and reinsurance companies are at the forefront of managing these risks, and if the insurance markets break down, it will have significant consequences for real estate and municipal financing. Insurance companies don’t only protect against catastrophic events. They also provide income-smoothing products to enable companies to mitigate exposures to increasingly volatile seasonal weather events. The panel, from two of the world’s largest reinsurance companies and a prominent independent think tank, will talk about the impact of climate change on the insurance markets and its knock-on effects in the financial markets, how communities can make themselves more resilient and better able to finance themselves, and how insurance derivatives can be used to measure non-catastrophic events such as extreme heat waves and deep freezes.

Lecture | Haiti and the Fictions of History


A broad comparative meditation on modes of storytelling Haiti's past, specifically in the wake of increased and sudden mainstream attention to that history on such platforms as The New York Times ("Haiti: The Ransom Project") and HBO (Raoul Peck's Exterminate All the Brutes). Thinking through both Edouard Glissant's engagement with History/histories/stories from an Antillean perspective and Saidiya Hartman's fraught encounters with The Archive, Professor Kaiama Glover considers the prose fiction works of three contemporary Haitian women writers – Evelyne Trouillot, Edwidge Danticat, and Myriam Chancy – as historiographic interventions of a particular order.

Book Discussion | Literary Theory for Robots: How Computers Learned to Write


In the industrial age, automation came for the shoemaker and the seamstress. Today, it has come for the writer, physician, programmer, and attorney.

Book Discussion | Over the Influence: Why Social Media Is Toxic for Women and Girls - And How We Can Take It Back (in-person and online)


Author Kara Alaimo reveals how social media is affecting every aspect of the lives of women, girls, and nonbinary people. Alaimo discusses why women experts who use social media to bolster their professional profiles often end up with fewer followers, reposts, and opportunities than men in their fields. She shows how what's happening on social media is making the offline world less safe for women, and how the feminist movement has been co-opted by brands on social media, ushering in a wave of backlash. Alaimo speaks these issues and her book with Madison Malone Kircher, a reporter covering internet culture for The New York Times.

Performance | The Perspective Project: Short Theater Works


The Outside/In ensemble creates community, connection and supports self-expression, providing rituals for success in the form of twice annual performances. Please come out and support the incredible ensemble as they present The Perspective Project. What is Outside/In? Stella Adler Arts Justice Division, created in 2001, identified a new strategic goal in 2013: to disrupt the school-to-prison pipeline. Arts Justice soon became the leading arts program provider at Rikers Island Correctional Facility. As students were released from jail, we wanted the program to support them during their re-entry transition. Outside/In was created to allow students to continue the vital work that began inside rehabilitation and to support their transition to daily civilian life. Today Outside/In is a transitional company of 100 members who create new, short works inspired by their personal experiences and current social issues. Returning citizens who have previously been incarcerated and people in residential addiction recovery programs are eligible for Outside/In. Conservatory students and alumni who have a deeply vested interest in art, theater and social good may volunteer to support the ensemble.

Concert | Klezmer Music Ensemble


Klezmer is an instrumental musical tradition of the Ashkenazi Jews of Central and Eastern Europe. The essential elements of the tradition include dance tunes, ritual melodies, and virtuosic improvisations played for listening; these would have been played at weddings and other social functions. The musical genre incorporated elements of many other musical genres including Ottoman (especially Greek and Romanian) music, Baroque music, German and Slavic folk dances, and religious Jewish music. As the music arrived in the United States, it lost some of its traditional ritual elements and adopted elements of American big band and popular music.

Opera | Opera & Democracy: Songs from Exile


The concert introduces two German-Jewish composers in American exile: Paul Aron and Rosy Geiger-Kullmann. Aron, a protagonist of the German interwar avant-garde, founded an opera company in New York in the 1950s to popularize the works of ?migr?s such as Darius Milhaud, Kurt Weill, Tadeusz Kassern, and Ernst Toch through piano arrangements and English translations. One of these - his English version of Toch's short opera Egon & Emilie - will be presented alongside exile songs by Aron. Geiger-Kullmann, a successful opera composer of the Weimar Republic, was born in Frankfurt and fled from the Nazis to New York and later to Monterey. Excerpts from her opera Columbus, written after her arrival in New York, and two stage works from her years in Germany have been reconstructed and will be performed in excerpts - a world premiere.

Speaker Sydney Skybetter is an expert in choreorobotics, a portmanteau of choreography and robotics, and a field which he has pioneered at the interdisciplinary intersection of choreographic theory and robotic motion planning. Choreorobotics offers a rich, critical aperture to consider how bodies in motion - human or otherwise - move through space and time to generate meaning. In Clock, Fall, Skybetter dives into the origin of choreorobotics, recent advancements in the field, and how emerging technologies can be informed or disrupted by collective action and coalition building, drawing from his work as the founder of the Conference for Research on Choreographic Interfaces.

Book Discussion | The Ends of Paradise: Race, Extraction, and the Struggle for Black Life in Honduras


The future of Honduras begins and ends on the white sand beaches of Tela Bay on the country’s northeastern coast where Garifuna, a Black Indigenous people, have resided for over two hundred years. Author Christopher A. Loperena examines the Garifuna struggle for life and collective autonomy, and demonstrates how this struggle challenges concerted efforts by the state and multilateral institutions, such as the World Bank, to render both their lands and their culture into fungible tourism products. Using a combination of participant observation, courtroom ethnography, and archival research, Loperena reveals how purportedly inclusive tourism projects form part of a larger neoliberal, extractivist development regime, which remakes Black and Indigenous territories into frontiers of progress for the mestizo majority. The book offers a trenchant analysis of the ways Black dispossession and displacement are carried forth through the conferral of individual rights and freedoms, a prerequisite for resource exploitation under contemporary capitalism.

Book Discussion | Goodnight Night Sweats: A Parody for the Menopausal (and Their Perimenopausal Friends)


Brenda Bowen (Haut Flasch) and Jessie Hartland's (Mina Pauze) present their book. Tackling the realities of aging (e.g. too much hair in some places, too little in others) while also embracing the joys (hard-won wisdom and the end of periods), Goodnight Night Sweats puts the underrepresented but widely-shared experience of menopause on the page with warmth and good humor. Riffing on the classic children's book Goodnight Moon, Goodnight Night Sweats takes on "the change" with big heart and humor. Through playful prose and witty illustrations, Haut Flasch and Mina Pauze explore the trials of menopause (and perimenopause)--hot flashes, mood swings, too much hair some places, too little others. At the same time, they cheer for the freedom that comes with getting older--goodbye, cramps! hello hard-won wisdom!--as they celebrate the fabulousness of women of a certain age.

For Bradford, the stage is a completely man-made world of rules that can inspire us to suspend our dis-belief and willingly submit to the legitimate authority of art. In such a world, the Puritans weren’t wrong to try to close down the Globe Theater where every performance was a celebration of the art of the agnostic; always shifting and moving, skeptical, self-governing, nuanced, with checks and balances, contradictions, full of gorgeous grays, chroma that sings, and the push and pull and flow of life freely lived.  The exhibition is organized as a performance in 2 acts, with an overture and a final ensemble.

Over the past two decades we have witnessed the return of one of the last century’s most controversial concepts onto the philosophical-political scene:  totalitarianism. What use are we making of it? What meaning — beyond the so-called ‘totalitarian characteristics’ upon which political science has constructed its typologies -- can it have for us today? Does it help us understand contemporary power dynamics or, instead, does it confuse us?  Discussing Simona Forti's book, speakers will engage these questions.

Discussion | All Possible Forests: Conceptualizing Collective Movements


Visiting Scholar Maria José Arjona and Professor André Lepecki will engage in an exploration of possibilities, contemplating the forest as both a metaphorical construct and a tangible locus for nuanced and innovative expressions. Our inquiry delves into the intricacies of planning and conceptualization of collective movements, conceived as dynamic sonic-social spaces, with a predominant focus on the transformative agency of attentive listening. The works disseminated throughout this dialogue serve as strategic instruments, systematically probing the essential role of transitioning -as an action- but also as technology for political resistance. These collective or soft structures, resembling microcosmic reflections of the Amazonian forest, function as active and open archives working within and throughout my work. They manifest, unfurl, and guide us toward the establishment of transient spaces and methodologies adept at reforesting not only corporeal entities but also the rigid structures permeated by institutional violence and normative paradigms.

Book Discussion | Care: The Highest Stage of Capitalism


Premilla Nadasen discusses her new book, a powerful critique of capitalist care relations and the economic profit extracted from care. Care traces the rise of the care economy, from its roots in slavery, where there was no clear division between production and social reproduction, to the present care crisis, experienced acutely by more and more Americans. Today’s care economy, Nadasen shows, is an institutionalized, hierarchical system in which some people’s pain translates into other people’s profit. Yet this is also a story of resistance. Low-wage workers, immigrants, and women of color in movements from Wages for Housework and Welfare Rights to the Movement for Black Lives have continued to fight for and practice collective care. These groups help us envision how, given the challenges before us, we can create a caring world as part of a radical future.

Book Discussion | Chasing Beauty: The Life of Isabella Stewart Gardner (in-person and online)


Isabella Stewart Gardner's singular art museum, with its plain exterior enfolding an astonishing four-story Italian palazzo, rose from Boston's Fens at the turn of the twentieth century. Natalie Dykstra's book is a biography of the extraordinary Gilded Age socialite who founded the Gardner museum. Eccentric, intelligent, and original, she was misunderstood by Boston's insular society and suffered the death of her only child. But in time came friendships, glittering and bohemian; world travels to Egypt and Syria; and collecting beautiful things. Henry James and John Singer Sargent--whose 1888 portrait of Gardner was a scandalous masterpiece--prized her friendship.

Book Discussion | Histories of Ecological Design: An Unfinished Cyclopedia (in-person and online)


Lydia Kallipoliti's book presents conflicting definitions and concepts of architects and designers and the parallel histories of their intellectual positions toward environmental thought from the 19th century to today. To survey the formation of this field, the context is not exclusively examined chronologically, but also in connected worldviews, each rendering evolving perceptions of nature, its relation to culture, and the occupation of the planet by human and non-human subjects. The book showcases that ecological design starts with the reconceptualization of the world as a complex system of flows rather than a discrete compilation of objects, which visual artist and theorist György Kepes has described as one of the fundamental reorientations of the 20th century.

Opera | Opera & Democracy: Listening in Exile


Ruth Schonthal and Erich Zeisl will be presented in a concert. Schonthal, who would have celebrated her 100th birthday in 2024, became an important figure in the New York music scene during her American exile. She composed several operas, including Princess Maleen, which will be heard in part. Zeisl, on the other hand, lived mainly on the West Coast, where he worked for the film and various educational institutions. Excerpts from his opera fragment Hiob, based on the famous novel by Joseph Roth and perhaps one of the most fascinating exile operas, will be performed next to Schonthal. Both works are largely unknown today, as are the biographies of their authors. Ruth Schonthal: Princess Maleen (Excerpts) Erich Zeisl: Hiob (Excerpts) Musicians: Manhattan School of Music

In Language City, Ross Perlin, co-director of the Endangered Language Alliance, follows six speakers of little-known and overlooked languages deep into their communities to learn how they are maintaining and reviving their languages against overwhelming odds. He also warns of the growing political threats and the onslaught of “killer languages” like English and Spanish. Most importantly, he shows how New York today is nothing less than a sanctuary of endangered languages. Perlin speaks with author Suketu Mehta about his race against time to map the little-known languages across the most linguistically diverse city in history.

Poetry Reading | Of Tyrant: Poems of Fury and Tenderness


Leah Umansky's lyric examination of fury and tenderness of self in the world asks how it is that we go on living in this, “our riddle,” our crisis: “in the city of anarchy, in the veil,” when all else fails and the proverbial—and not so proverbial—tyrant of each moment takes all the airspace. When “courage is vulnerability,” and when “everyone else in the room seems to be “thumbing their anger, and carelessly flipping off the quiet,”

Performance | The Perspective Project: Short Theater Works


The Outside/In ensemble creates community, connection and supports self-expression, providing rituals for success in the form of twice annual performances. Please come out and support the incredible ensemble as they present The Perspective Project. What is Outside/In? Stella Adler Arts Justice Division, created in 2001, identified a new strategic goal in 2013: to disrupt the school-to-prison pipeline. Arts Justice soon became the leading arts program provider at Rikers Island Correctional Facility. As students were released from jail, we wanted the program to support them during their re-entry transition. Outside/In was created to allow students to continue the vital work that began inside rehabilitation and to support their transition to daily civilian life. Today Outside/In is a transitional company of 100 members who create new, short works inspired by their personal experiences and current social issues. Returning citizens who have previously been incarcerated and people in residential addiction recovery programs are eligible for Outside/In. Conservatory students and alumni who have a deeply vested interest in art, theater and social good may volunteer to support the ensemble.

Concert | Singer and Filmmaker Explore Identity, Displacement and Belonging


Multidimensional singer, artist, and music producer Alanna Stuart and award-winning interdisciplinary artist A.S.M. Kobayashi each create distinct and symbiotic works that explore identity, displacement, and belonging, drawing from their wide-ranging experiences and constantly evolving approaches. Stuart’s new piece explores the breadth of electronic-based sonic expression emerging from Canada's queer and femme dancehall diaspora and features the full repertoire of To All the Girls I’ve Loved Before, her debut solo record of femmehall works—Jamaican-inspired reimaginings of songs by female musicians. Kobayashi shares an excerpt of her live documentary Electric Neon Clock which incorporates the case files of her Canadian relatives of Japanese heritage forcibly relocated and dispossessed during WWII. Using video, sound, interviews, performance and a substantial photo archive, she welcomes audiences to assess the custodial file and interpret and humanize its contents.

Dr. Sahana Ghosh discusses her book which chronicles the slow transformation of a connected region into national borderlands and shows the foundational place of gender and sexuality in the meaning and management of threat and security in relation to mobility. This book recasts a singular focus on border fences and migrants as border-crossers and shows, instead, that postcolonial bordering materializes through multiple forms of violence and devaluation in agrarian, borderland lives.

Discussion | The Oscars Past and Present: Who Should Have Won


The annual Academy Awards are a perfect excuse to take stock of the movies. So movie mavens Sara Lukinson and Harry Chotiner are going to have a conversation about all of it over lunch. What did the Oscars get right and wrong about the nominations and the winners? Let's look at past Oscar choices to see where they seem vindicated by time....or are more embarrassing than ever. Beyond the Oscars - what were the best and most interesting movies of the last year and what were the big disappointments? What are we to make of the Barbie phenomenon? How did a serious political-intellectual film like Oppenheimer do a billion dollars at the box office? Was Scoresese's Killers of the Flower Moon, or Bradley Cooper's Maestro as good as some critics say? What about intriguing films like May December and American Fiction or foreign films Past Lives and Zone of Interest? Are movies in movie theaters really reviving or are they actually on life support?

Book Discussion | Mass Atrocities and the Police: A New History of Ethnic Cleansing in Bosnia and Herzegovina (online)


Between April 1992 and December 1995, more than 100,000 people were killed in the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The terrible atrocities committed in this period have been much discussed and studied and many prosecuted as acts of genocide, war crimes or crimes against humanity. But so far, the academic scholarship has focused on the role of the military in these events. This has come at the expense of considering the police's role, which author Christian Axboe Nielsen here demonstrates as crucial. Nielsen traces the origins of the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina to the police and associated paramilitary groups. Nielsen makes this ground-breaking case by drawing on a host of confidential archival sources, academic research and practical experience as a widely cited expert witness in the most notorious of the war crimes tribunals. His innovative new history sheds light on wider issues regarding the dissolution of Yugoslavia, the Balkan wars and the region today.

Lecture | Learning Curves: Machine and Human Learning


Recent advances in machine learning have revitalised the empiricist program by providing direct demonstrations of learning through experience. Vast neural networks that start out with random configurations develop impressive skills in domains like perception, strategic play, and conversation by gradually learning from experience. Despite these successes, there are reasons to think that AI systems today learn in a different, and, in some respects, slower way than humans do. In this talk, Daniel Rothschild explores this potential weakness in machine learning, bringing out different senses in which learning by AI today may be less powerful than human learning.

Opening Reception | Elizabeth Flood: Lookout


Taking place outdoors in the elements, Flood’s practice is physical and watchful. She excavates strata of emotion, history, and movement embedded in the landscape in her responsive, gestural approach. As an artist, Flood feels and processes the world around her, looking to cycles of trauma and endurance in the American Landscape through depictions of the Atlantic Ocean and dunes in Provincetown, Massachusetts; The Hudson River; Civil War Battlefields in Chancellorsville, Virginia and Gettysburg, Pennsylvania; and the Mojave Desert. These works span four years—a national election cycle—recording changes of weather, light, and topography through physical endurance and expression of painting. Elizabeth Flood lives and works in Beacon, NY and is originally from Virginia. She earned her MFA in Painting from Boston University, her BA in History and Religious Studies from the University of Virginia, and studied at the Mt. Gretna School Of Art. In 2019, Flood was a participant at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture and was an artist-in-residence at the Studios at MASS MoCA. She was awarded two Visual Arts Fellowships at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown in 2021 and 2022. Flood is the recipient of several grants and awards including the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation Grant which helped fund this exhibition, the Real Art Award, the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts Graduate Fellowship, and the Boston University John Walker Alumni Award. Flood currently teaches painting at Purchase College.

Opening Reception | Hitoshi Fugo: Kami


Japanese photographer Hitoshi Fugo (b. 1947)'s still-life studies explore a single subject's nuanced multi-faceted expressions until the subject becomes detached from its category, meaning, or identity. He commits to an ongoing experimentation in dismantling these boundaries. This exhibition features one of his most ambitious yet long-silenced projects. In 2001, Fugo began photographing the large burnt paper roll that had been sitting in the corner of his studio for six or seven years. One day, around 1993, he walked past a printing factory destroyed by fire and saw cleaning workers leaving half-burnt paper rolls on the ground. Fugo asked them not to throw them away and later brought them to his studio. The salvaged objects, destroyed by violence (fire) and too chaotic for human control, inspired the artist, particularly after witnessing and photographing the aftermath of the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake in 1995.

Opening Reception | Sam Roeck: Boyfriend


Sam Roeck painted portraits of his ex-boyfriends and paired each one with a likeness of himself. These four portrait-diptychs stand within the long practice of the artist’s self-investigation, mostly using pencil and paper, photography, and, as of late, oil on board or canvas. The fraught coupling of self and ex-lover adds a surprising charge to the traditional dynamics of portraiture. How to work with a sitter who is intimately familiar, unfastened from earlier frames, who needs to be engaged with afresh? Roeck reflects on the aftermath of these relationships, the friendships that remain, and the idea of “letting go.”

Discussion | Black Lands and the Poetics of Citizenship


The story of land in what we refer to as the United States of America, is complex. We investigate land through many frames, including theft, domination, or stewardship, and still have an incomplete understanding of what the layers of fraught meaning and history associated with it. In this event, we shine a light on one slice of that story through the portal of Black history and practice. This is a multimedia panel discussion about the contradictions and revelations of Black land ownership in rural America. The event will feature excerpts from the works of  Amy Godine (The Black Woods: Pursuing Racial Justice on the Adirondack Frontier), Paul A. Miller (Searching for Timbuctoo), and Dr. Gail Myers (Rhythms of the Land).
