Street art is visual art created in public locations, usually unsanctioned artwork executed outside of the context of traditional art venues. 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.

Lecture | From Slavery to Freedom: Liberating the Soviet Jewish Women from Gender Inequality
From the outset, the Bolsheviks strove to create an official atheistic communist culture and revolutionize the norms of behavior of Soviet citizens, regulating all aspects of everyday life. Guided by the ethos of the Party, Bolshevik culture was didactic, moralistic, and atheistic, as it tried to rid Soviet citizens of religiosity, and as it aimed at breaking down the old customs, beliefs, and manners that characterized pre-revolutionary life. Speaker Elissa Bemporad is the Jerry and William Ungar Associate Professor of East European Jewish History and the Holocaust at Queens College and the CUNY Graduate Center. She is the author of Becoming Soviet Jews: The Bolshevik Experiment in Minsk (Indiana University Press, 2013), winner of the National Jewish Book Award and of the Fraenkel Prize in Contemporary History.

Lecture | Cabinet Logics: An Intellectual History of Book Furniture
While the physical properties of our reading materials, and our material engagements with them, have evolved over the millennia – and particularly within the past decade – we still rely on physical supports, furnishings, to scaffold our interactions with them. Even “the cloud” that seems to float above us today relies on heavy architecture for its operation. In this talk, Shannon Mattern of The New School focuses on the furniture we design and build (or buy, or appropriate, or kludge together) to make, store, support, organize, and preserve our bibliographic objects. These structures scaffold our media technologies, inform the way human bodies relate to those media, and embody certain assumptions about what and how we know things through these objects.

Book Reading | Macarena Gómez-Barris discusses her book The Extractive Zone: Social Ecologies and Decolonial Perspectives
Extending arguments in her recently published book, Gómez-Barris considers performative engagement with oceanic space, its social ecologies, and its occupation by transnational mega-extractive industries. During a time of new authoritarianisms in the Américas, she shows how extractive capitalism reorganizes the Pacific Ocean into a normative geography, where questions of stewardship and governance become epiphenomenal to the primary condition of resource accumulation.

Lecture | Trust and Credit: The Mercantile Culture of Risk in Renaissance Italy
Renaissance Italy was a society in which the problems of how to trust and whom to trust presented perennial challenges; yet it also housed a vibrant, transcontinental, proto-capitalist economy that relied on trust for its functioning. This lecture explores how Renaissance Italian merchants confronted and attempted to manage the problems of trust and the particular mercantile culture that resulted from this: a culture that blended apparently modernizing elements - such as probabilistic reasoning - with what appear to twenty-first-century eyes as irrational beliefs, religious faith, and ideas about personal standing. At its center lay new conceptions of time and the future, which provoked anxieties and offered possibilities in equal measure. A lecture by Nicholas Baker, Macquarie University.

Trinidad-American community leader Keami La Croix has made a name for herself in Crown Heights’s West Indie community as the "Black Robin Hood." But when she decides to create a campaign to reform the violence-stricken, yet very popular Brooklyn J’ouvert — the pre-dawn celebration that originated from slaves impersonating their masters’ masquerade balls — she is met by severe resistance from the black community that once loved her. Written by Karina Billini. Directed by Andrés López-Alicea. Featuring Jonathan Crimeni, Moire Kiyingi, Jillian Macklin, Miranda Powers, and Matthew Thomas Scott.
