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.

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?

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”.

Discussion |
Instead of revisiting a few nostalgic clichés, this panel will collectively reflect on the very historical and political parameters of May ‘68: WHEN was May ‘68 exactly? WHERE did it occur? WHAT was it about? What is the meaningful historical sequence in which May ‘68 makes sense? With which other dates should it be paired in order to produce a significant chronology of the post-war period? 1958? 1967? 1974? 1981? 1989? Can this chronology be understood as a succession of “Revolutions” and periods of “return to order?” And where did it happen? While the narratives of May ‘68 traditionally locate it on a line going from Paris to New York, via Prague, Beijing and Tokyo, we would like to think through an alternative francophone geography of May ’68, one that includes Guadeloupe, where an anti-racist uprising in May 1967 was met with violent repression, as well as Dakar and Tunis, where contestations shook the local foundations of power and shaped social and political movements for decades to come. And finally, WHAT was May '68? How can we interpret together all the different movements that contested relations of power around race, gender, sexuality, labor, culture and knowledge? How did they shape subsequent political conflicts and how they resonate with current political and social struggles?

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.

Symposium |
Over the past few years, slavery has become a frequent theme in contemporary culture. Even though the topic has always been central in countries such as Brazil and the United States, it seems we have been watching more movies, soap operas and tv series on slavery than ever. Tourists are visiting historical sites and engaging in tours on the history and memory of the slave trade all over the Atlantic world. Crowds are packing museums on African-American culture. Slavery is represented in dance in popular festivals such as Rio’s carnival. Not surprisingly, slavery is a topic as sensitive as it is trendy. Video games and children’s books are provoking discussions among school-age parents. Movies are becoming public controversies. And the discussions over memorials and statues that deal with the slave past set the stage for political protests all over the United States.   This symposium aims to discuss the ways in which slavery is narrated in the tourism and entertainment industries. 5:30 pm                       Opening Remarks  5:45 pm – 7:45 pm      Screening of Vazante (Brazil/Portugal, 2017, 1h 56 min), directed by Daniela Thomas 7:45 pm – 9:00 pm      Discussion with director Daniela Thomas, Hebe Mattos (Universidade Federal de Juiz de Fora, Brazil) and Jennifer Morgan (NYU) Chair: Steve Hahn (NYU) Reception to follow.

Frank and Simone have fulfilled their dream and live with their two children in a townhouse in the suburbs. They are a happy couple until the day Frank is diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor. The family is suddenly confronted with death. The time to say goodbye is short, which makes the situation all the more difficult for Frank. Director Andreas Dresen conveys through this moving and yet unsentimental drama how people cope with this problem in isolation and within the family circle, at home rather than in a hospital or hospice. It is inspired by experiences with people from his immediate surroundings. What’s special about this film is that he directs his attention where others either look away, hide behind metaphors or blur reality. It premiered at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival, where it won the Prize of Un Certain Regard. In German with English subtitles.

Book Reading |
“Dear Miss. You won’t remember me or my name. You have failed so many of us. However, I have often thought about you, and the other teachers, and that institution you call ‘school’ and about the children you fail. You fail us right into the fields and factories and then you forget us.” So began Lettera a una professoressa, translated into English in 1969 as Letter to a Teacher. The collective authors were a group of young students at an alternative school run by Don Lorenzo Milani in Barbiana, a tiny rural community in the hills near Florence. The book was immediately welcomed in Italy by teachers as a manifesto for a democratic alternative to a school system that reproduced deep divisions of social class, by linguists such as Tullio De Mauro as a revelation and by university students as a little red book for a revolution. Looking back on it now, fifty years after the upheavals of 1968, Lettera a una professoressa can be seen as the spark that ignited all subsequent attempts to reform education in Italy. Still today, it has the power to divide readers and arouse passionate arguments. Vanessa Roghi discusses her book La lettera sovversiva In English.

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 Barnard-Columbia Chorus joins the Choir of the University of Bolzano, Italy in presenting Messa da Requiem, Verdi’s masterpiece. In 1868, Giuseppe Verdi set out to commemorate the passing of Gioachino Rossini by inviting twelve additional Italian composers to contribute a section to a new Requiem Mass. The premier was slated for the following year, but difficulties with the organizing committee and the proposed conductor prevented the performance. Several years later, the great Italian writer Alessandro Manzoni also passed away. Verdi deeply admired Manzoni and was determined to set all of the Latin text of the Requiem Mass himself to honor his contemporary. The premier of the Messa da Requiem that, we know today, took place in 1874 with Verdi conducting.

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?

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.

Over the past few years, slavery has become a frequent theme in contemporary culture. Even though the topic has always been central in countries such as Brazil and the United States, it seems we have been watching more movies, soap operas and tv series on slavery than ever. Tourists are visiting historical sites and engaging in tours on the history and memory of the slave trade all over the Atlantic world. Crowds are packing museums on African-American culture. Slavery is represented in dance in popular festivals such as Rio’s carnival. Not surprisingly, slavery is a topic as sensitive as it is trendy. Video games and children’s books are provoking discussions among school-age parents. Movies are becoming public controversies. And the discussions over memorials and statues that deal with the slave past set the stage for political protests all over the United States.   This symposium aims to discuss the ways in which slavery is narrated in the tourism and entertainment industries. 10 am – 10:30 am       Coffee 10:30 am – 1:00 pm    Slavery, Heritage and Tourism  Chair: Barbara Weinstein (NYU) Monica Lima (Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro): Talking about the History of Slavery Visiting a Site of Sensitive Memory: the Case of Valongo Wharf in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil Keila Grinberg (Andrés Bello Visiting Professor, NYU and UNIRIO): Slavery and the Challenges of Tourism of Memory in Brazil Alissandra Cummings (University of West Indies, Barbados): The Absence of Presence: Resurrecting the “Ghost of Slavery” in 21st Century Caribbean/Barbados Paul Gardullo  (National Museum of African American History and Culture): Meanings of Memory:  Building Community Stewardship around the history of the slave trade in Mozambique and South Africa Discussant: Daryle Williams (University of Maryland)   1:00 pm – 2:30 pm      Lunch 2:30 pm – 5:30 pm      Slavery, Storytelling and Entertainment Chair: Ada Ferrer (NYU) Paula Halperin (SUNY: Purchase College): Domestic Space, Intimacy, and Historical Imagination in the Brazilian Soap Opera Escrava Isaura (1976) Brenda Romero (Limerick University): The New World: A Look at Slavery in Games Lisa Woolfork (University of Virginia): _Deliberate Remembering and Willful Forgetting: Approaches to American Slavery in Popular Culture_  Ashraf Rushdy (Wesleyan University): Underground and Overseas: Recent Developments in Contemporary Narratives of Slavery Martha Abreu (Universidade Federal Fluminense): Narratives about Slavery in Brazilian Samba and Carnival Discussant: Yuko Miki (Fordham University) Reception to follow.

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.

Book Reading |
It has been common in modernity to think of history as singular and universal, progressively moving forward to a particular end. Although few contemporary philosophers and historians maintain the view that there is strict universality and teleology in history, according to Professor Dmitri Nikulin in his most recent work, The Concept of History, the remnants of these positions still affect our understanding of history. In the account he gives, which he traces back to antiquity, Nikulin interrogates what we mean when we talk of history and the philosophical problems we get into by conceiving of it in certain ways. If we jettison the idea of an objective universal end to history, are we left in a morass of relativism? Can we embrace a view of history as an amalgam of genealogies and geographies while still doing justice to constituents of our accounts of history that seem to be historically invariant? This will be a roundtable discussion of Nikulin's latest book and the philosophy of history, more generally. Nikulin will be joined for the roundtable discussion by Jeffrey Bernstein (Professor of Philosophy, College of the Holy Cross), and Massimiliano Tomba (Professor of History of Consciousness, University of California, Santa Cruz, and former Visiting Professor at the Department of Philosophy). A reception with drinks and light refreshments will follow.

The Masaryk Phenomenon The special exhibit focuses on the unique personality of Tomáš Garrigue Masaryk, the founding father and first President of Czechoslovakia. The project depicts his many roles as professor of philosophy, sociologist, writer, politician, journalist, visionary, democrat, father, and husband. A combination of display panels and projections portrays Masaryk’s worldly inspiration and broad influence as well as his critical thinking and courage to oppose the majority while defending justice and human values.  Milan Rastislav Štefánik – the Great Slovak and European Diplomat Milan Rastislav Štefánik was a Slovak politician, diplomat and astronomer. During World War I, he served at the same time as a general in the French Army and as Minister of War for Czechoslovakia. As one of the leading members of the Czechoslovak National Council (the resistance government), he contributed decisively to the cause of Czechoslovakian sovereignty, since the status of Czech- and Slovak-populated territories was one of those in question until shortly before the disintegration of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, in 1918.

Borders sit at the center of global politics. Yet they are too often understood as thin lines, as they appear on maps, rather than as political institutions in their own right. This book takes a detailed look at the evolution of border security in the United States after 9/11. Far from the walls and fences that dominate the news, it reveals borders to be thick, multi-faceted and binational institutions that have evolved greatly in recent decades.

S.E.M. Ensemble presents Master-Pieces (2014-15), a chamber opera by Petr Kotik. Master-Pieces is a meditation on the nature of the creative process, and on works that we identify as masterpieces. Kotik’s libretto uses text from Gertrude Stein’s 1936 lecture, “What Are Master-Pieces and Why Are There So Few of Them.” The piece combines a conversation among the singers with a quasi-lecture, interrupted by three narrators whose text comes from Stein's diary she kept from 1943 to 1944, "The Wars I Have Seen." The diary refers to situations Stein experienced during WWII and places the opera in a certain time and space. Hailed by The New York Times as “the best of what is left of the experimental tradition,” S.E.M. Ensemble was founded in 1970 by composer, conductor and flutist Petr Kotik (b.1942). S.E.M has performed in venues such as Carnegie Hall, Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center, and Merkin Hall.

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.

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.

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?

Portuguese storyteller Ana Sofia Paiva, accompanied by João Paiva, brings an aquatic heart of narrative and song, and an invitation to share memory and silence. Her work of traditional ballads and tales is shaped by the geography and cultures of the Iberian peninsula seen through the lens of Atlantismo. The program includes old southern laments, raw voices of water creatures, sirens, and serpents urging us to resist a world where nothing seems to make sense and helping us to remember who we really are.
