Home to some of the city's most iconic architecture, from Gothic to Post-Modern and from Beaux-Arts to Art Deco (lots of Art Deco). it's not difficult to understand why.

Tour | High Line Tour
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 When interstate truck traffic made the railway outdated, it fell into ruin, only to be regenerated as a park.

Workshop | Three Kinds of Networking and How to Master Them
As we imagine it, networking is an exotic activity which is practiced by extremely extroverted sales people, not something we would willingly do. And if networking is something we like, how focused are we on the different approaches needed for each type? The fact is that most of us do not understand networking. Networking is not one thing. There are three distinct types of networking and none of them involve having a personality transplant to be successful. Join coach Win Sheffield and learn how to use networking fully in a way that is effective for you and what you need in your career.

Lecture | Reversing Roles?: Environmental Politics and Policy in China and the US
Has there been a role reversal between the US and China on the environment? China has long been considered an environmental outlier-- horrendous smog episodes, water unfit to drink and even to irrigate, huge increases in the number of cars on the road, a global leader in the use of pesticides, a major coal producer and importer, a reluctant participant in global climate negotiations until recently, and more. The US, until November 9, had been seen as at least modestly responsive to environmental concerns. Now with Donald Trump and Scott Pruitt ensconced in Washington seeking to systematically dismantle the environmental policy system in contrast to the passage of environmental legislation and a new role around climate change in China, the roles do seem to be reversing. Is that an accurate view? Speaker Robert Gottlieb is Emeritus Professor at Occidental College and founder and former executive director of the Urban and Environmental Policy Institute. He is the author or co-author of more than a dozen books; his most recent book, co-authored with Simon Ng, is Global Cities: Urban Environments in Los Angeles, Hong Kong, and China.

Lecture | 'Five dollars for a letter written by a Negro': Arturo Schomburg's Library and the Price of Black History
'History must restore what slavery took away': such was the urgent, if haunting, imperative of history as reparations, articulated in 1925 by Arturo Schomburg. At a moment when the very idea of black historicity aroused doubt, Schomburg, an Afro-Puerto Rican bibliophile in New York, built an unprecedented 'race library' documenting the African diasporic past. This talk examines the contested place of slavery in archival economies at once affective and pecuniary. In tracing how Schomburg bought, and ultimately sold, his library, this talk shows how early African American archives recast the market's devaluation of black lives and letters. Speaker Laura Helton is an assistant professor in the Department of English at the University of Delaware.

In the early twentieth century, over two hundred of New York’s most glamorous socialites joined the suffrage movement. Understanding the need for popular approval for any social change, they leveraged their social celebrity, wealth, and power to court mainstream interest, turning a woman’s right to vote into a fashionable cause.

Lecture | I Can't Get No Satisfaction: Giacomo Leopardi's Theory of Infinite Desire
In the light of today's debates about the nature of pleasure, desire, happiness, and enjoyment, Giacomo Leopardi's observations on pleasure and desire strike us as both Romantic and post-Romantic - and uncannily up-to-date with 20th century psychoanalysis and contemporary theory. In his absolute certainty that the only desire is infinite desire and that no object, no goal, no accomplishment will ever bring satisfaction, Leopardi's theory of pleasure is the missing link between the Enlightenment debates about happiness, Freud's death drive, Lacan's enjoyment, and Deleuze's and Guattari's notion of productive desire.

Lecture | Hip Hop Heresies: Queer Aesthetics in New York City
Hip Hop Heresies proposes new ways to think about the “authentic” hip hop body and the ways hip hop artists, DJs, rappers, and filmmakers, in this case, deploy New York City and its specific artistic, racial, gender, and sexual populations and traditions, to remake hip hop meaning and doing. Particularly, this manuscript troves the rich and untapped alternate hip hop historiographies—the queer(ed) bodies, Afro-Asian cultural production, sonic gender drag, graphic novel avatars, and the mash-up of rap and Broadway musicals. Speaker Shanté Paradigm Smalls won CLAGS’ 2016 Fellowship Award for Best First Book Project in LGBTQ Studies.

Book Reading | Joshua Davis reads from his book From Head Shops to Whole Foods: The Rise and Fall of Activist Entrepreneurs
In the 1960s and ’70s, a diverse range of storefronts brought the work of the era’s social movements into the marketplace. Thousands of these enterprises opened across the country–but only a handful have survived. Some, such as Whole Foods Market, ultimately abandoned their quest for collective political change. Joshua Davis uncovers the forerunners of today’s social enterprises, while showing how contemporary companies replicate the language–but rarely the mission–of liberation and social change.
