Lecture | Historic Cities of Ukraine: Perspectives for Research and Conservation


A atlk about those historic cities of Ukraine, in particular within its historical region of Halychyna, that had been granted the Magdeburg Law. The Magdeburg Law privileges had an essential influence on the urban development of the region and throughout Central and Eastern Europe. It brought about the emergence of a very specific city planning model, featuring a market square at its center, which lasted for centuries. In many cases, however, this model had to be integrated with older urban structures or reshaped to conform with new ideas of urban planning that many cities underwent as they developed with time. These transformations will be analyzed with a particular focus on crucial changes that transpired in the 20th century. Also discussed will be the special status obtained by historic cities that require conservation and preservation of their physical fabric. Speaker Mariana Kaplinska received her PhD at the Lviv Polytechnic National University, Ukraine in 2016 and has taught at that university since then. She has been involved in the development of historic preservation plans and surveys for a number of cities. In 2018, she participated in the 18th International Course on Wood Conservation Technology (ICWCT 2018) in Oslo, Norway.

Lecture | Energy, Development and Climate Change: How Development Successes Are Fundamentally Altering the Global Energy Landscape


As recently as 2000, industrialized countries consumed more than half of the world’s energy resources. Today, about fifteen years later, more than half of the world’s energy is being consumed in developing countries where there are over 6 billion energy consumers and their share of consumption is expected to increase over the next several decades, more than doubling industrialized country consumption by 2040. And with these changes, the center of gravity of the energy landscape is shifting to the developing world. Speaker Philippe Benoit is currently Adjunct Senior Research Scholar leading the work of its Center on Global Energy Policy in the area of energy for development.

Discussion | Indigenous Resistance and the Crisis of Mother Earth: Paths to Climate Justice


This second panel seeks to foster critical reflection on the responsibility of academia in relation to the front-line communities and movements directly confronting the drivers and agents of our planetary crisis. The panel will be moderated by Professor Abou Farman. Around the world, indigenous communities and movements are revitalizing indigenous knowledge and ways of organizing to defend lands, restore communal self-determination, and protect Mother Earth as they confront (neo)colonial, patriarchal, capitalist and state projects that undermine indigenous territories and drive Anthropocene crises like climate change and biodiversity loss.

Lecture | Immersive, Interactive, Democratic, 'Original': Shakespeare You Can Throw Beer At


This talk considers an influential movement in a relatively small slice of contemporary theatre: the “Original Practices” movement in Shakespeare performance. Although “OP” claims to eschew modern theatrical technology in favor of early modern practices, its promoters frequently define OP in terms that locate it firmly in the ideological sphere of late modernity: as immersive, interactive, and most of all, democratic.  In this talk, W. B. Worthen considers the ways its human and the inhuman agents—or actants—betray OP’s implication in contemporary values, perhaps nowhere so clearly as in its “spiritualization” of an innately Shakespearean techne, one that is always “original,” whatever its theatrical or technological provenance. Preceded by a reception hour from 5:00 - 6:00 p.m. for all those attending the lecture.

Talk | Artist Talk: Garage: American Delusion


The garage is a raw, semi-domestic space, one that is free of the filial piety and gender roles ascribed to the kitchen, bedroom and living room. The space is the incubator of disruptive attitudes and subcultures. This talk will frame the myth of the garage and its architectural beginnings with Frank Lloyd Wright's Robie House to its evolution as a central space for the American Dream to its turn into delusion. These will be accompanied by short clips from the speakers' new documentary, which sketch out new family arrangements and ways of living that are emerging in an increasingly entrepreneurial landscape. Luis Ortega Govela is a Mexican architect and writer based in Los Angeles. He is an Architectural Association graduate and a founder of the arts collective åyr. He is currently working on a documentary film and his first residential project. Olivia Erlanger choreographs ultramodern environments through installations, videos and writing that show how advanced technologies engender subjectivity. Alongside curating exhibitions as a founding director of Grand Century, New York, Erlanger has held solo exhibition with Mother Culture, Los Angeles; Human Resources, Los Angeles; AND NOW, Dallas; Mathew, New York; What Pipeline, Detroit; Balice Hertling New York; and Seventeen Gallery, London.

Discussion | Excavating Feminist Histories: Early Productions from Women Make Movies


In the late 1960s and 1970s, numerous media organizations arose driven by the desire to give voice to those ordinarily marginalized by the mainstream media. Among this wave was Women Make Movies, a female-led, community-based media education center founded in New York in 1969 to empower women to tell their own stories by teaching them the technical production skills to pursue their own film and videos projects. Through these early efforts, all-women crews experimented with largely fiction storytelling to address important contemporary feminist themes such as gender equality, independence, love, friendship, and communal values. While Women Make Movies, Inc. has since become one of the most impactful and important distributors of independent film produced by women, its early origins as a production and community-based teaching group have been largely forgotten. This presentation and screening event seeks to bring a selection of these rare, early feminist fiction projects to light. A roundtable discussion moderated by Tanya Goldman, Cinema Studies PHD candidate, will follow the screening. The panel will include Women Make Movies co-founders Ariel Dougherty and Sheila Paige, and Dr. Alexandra Juhasz, Chair of the Film Department, Brooklyn College, CUNY. The discussion will center upon the legacy of Seventies feminist filmmaking, preservation challenges, and ways to bridge past and present to forge intergenerational bonds between media activists then and now.

Gallery Talk | Exhibition Tour: Nature in Black and White


Artworks depicting themes of nature are often full of color, striving to stay true to and capture the natural world’s kaleidoscope of vibrant hues: lush greenery, clear blue skies, and verdant flowers. Six artists take natural subject matter and depict it using reserved tones of black, white, and grey, revealing intricate forms and details through the absence of color. Works in the show range from pencil drawings and oil paint, to cut paper and cast plaster. Artists included are Tatiana Arocha, Marna Chester, Tom Monsees, Sarah Myers, Amy Ross, and Alexandria Tarver. Please note: Admission to related programming is free but space is limited.

Discussion | On The Art Of Two European Painters


Robert Bunkin will discuss the art of painters Mela Muter and Lotte Laserstein. Two forgotten 20th century masters of figurative painting, Mela Muter (Polish 1876 - 1967) and Lotte Laserstein (German 1898 - 1993) both suffered persecution under the Nazi regime, but continued to paint in exile or hiding, producing startlingly original works outside of the prevailing avant-gardes. A few of Laserstein’s paintings have entered American museums, whereas Muter’s major works remain entirely in Europe. Both artists are now subjects of recent exhibitions in Germany and Spain. Robert Bunkin is a figurative painter, art historian and studio instructor on the faculty of Borough of Manhattan Community College and art curator at the Staten Island Museum.. He has exhibited widely in New York City, nationally and in Italy. In 2011 he was the recipient of the John J. Newman Medal from the National Society of Painters in Casein and Acrylic.

Gallery Talk | Made in New York City: The Business of Folk Art: Exhibition Tour


Folk art has flourished in the heart of New York City since the eighteenth century, contrary to popular belief that it was a rural genre that reflected local tastes, traditions, and needs. Around 100 works of art by self-taught artists tell the story about New York City as the center of America’s financial and commercial world from two perspectives simultaneously: “The Art of Business” portrays the people and places that were part of the city’s thrumming commercial life, and “The Business of Art” highlights the diverse mediums and formats used by the artists, artisans, and manufacturers. This tour of the exhibition is conducted by museum gallery guides.

Discussion | Long-Term, Large-Scale Change: Insights from the Field


This panel will explore the new approaches and perspectives that social impact practitioners are bringing to their work. Recognizing the systemic nature of the change they’re seeking, organizations are shifting how they approach change-making. They’re preparing for journeys that are more long-term, more large-scale, and more complex. How should we think about strategy in such conditions? What does success look like, and what challenges do we face? The panelists’ reflections on these questions are collected in the new book Perspectives on Impact: Leading Voices on Making Systemic Change in the Twenty-First Century, which brings together over 20 leaders to share their perspectives on how the impact “field” is tackling the complex, multi-dimensional challenges facing our world.

A special evening with pioneering Brazilian artist Anna Bella Geiger, an influential figure who is recognized as the first female video artist in Brazil. Geiger, who lives in Rio de Janeiro, will screen and discuss her newly preserved video works from the 1970s and ‘80s. Geiger's groundbreaking body of early performance video maps the relationship of the (often female) body, space, and place, in what the artist has termed an “anthropo-morphic cartography.” In her multi-disciplinary artwork, which also includes painting, sculpture, photography, engraving, and multi-media installation, Geiger interweaves the political and the poetic to address issues of identity and national culture.

Lecture | Existence Is Evidence of Immortality


The universe plausibly has an infinite future and an infinite past. Given unlimited time, every qualitative state that has ever occurred will occur again, infinitely many times. There will thus exist in the future persons arbitrarily similar to you, in any desired respects. A person sufficiently similar to you in the right respects will qualify as literally another incarnation of you. Some theories about the nature of persons rule this out; however, these theories also imply, given an infinite past, that your present existence is a probability-zero event. Hence, your present existence is evidence against such theories of persons. With: Michael Huemer (UC Boulder) Vegan reception to follow.

Conference | 8th Annual Radical Democracy Conference: What is Feminist Politics?


The last couple of years gave rise to new democratic movements. This stage of grassroots democratic protests in countries such as US, Brazil, Argentina, Spain or Poland have been centered around feminist issues including sexual harassment, abortion law, domestic violence, and gender inequality. This conference aims to address this set of questions: The Women’s March against Trump and International Women’s Strike present only two examples of the recent and global feminist wave. Why does the current wave of political mobilization in the US, Argentina, or Brazil have a feminist face? How does it differ from earlier democratic movements, including the movements of Occupy Wall Street and Black Lives Matter? What distinguishes this new wave from other feminist struggles from the past? Finally, what issues, reactions, and obstacles do contemporary feminists face in various places around the world?  Confirmed speakers: Jack Halberstam, Nancy Fraser, Cinzia Arruzza, Miriam Ticktin.

Lecture | War by Numbers: Understanding Conventional Combat


War by Numbers assesses the nature of conventional warfare through the analysis of historical combat. In his new book, Christopher A. Lawrence of the Dupuy Institute establishes what we know about conventional combat and why we know it. By demonstrating the impact a variety of factors have on combat he moves such analysis into modern data and interpretation. Using vast data sets, Lawrence examines force ratios, the human factor in case studies from World War II and beyond, the combat value of superior situational awareness, and the effects of dispersion, among other elements. Lawrence challenges existing interpretations of conventional warfare and shows how such combat should be conducted in the future, simultaneously broadening our understanding of what it means to fight wars by the numbers. Christopher A. Lawrence is a professional historian and military analyst and has participated in studies for the U.S. Army, the U.S. Department of Defense, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and the U.S. Air Force. He is the executive director and president of the Dupuy Institute, a nonprofit organization dedicated to scholarly research and objective analysis of historical data related to armed conflict. Lawrence is the author of Kursk: The Battle of Prokhorovka and America’s Modern Wars: Understanding Iraq, Afghanistan, and Vietnam.

Discussion | Coffeehouse Chronicles: Witkacy, the Polish Avant-Garde Playwright


Coffeehouse Chronicles will focus on the work of turn-of-the-century Polish avant-garde playwright Stanislaw Ignacy Witkiewicz (1885-1939), known as "Witkacy," who may well have been Europe's most radical novelist, dramatist, painter, and philosopher in an era when artists competed fiercely to break away from all that had come before. Writing in Polish yet banned in Communist Poland, Witkacy may not have gained the international attention of the Surrealists, Dadaists, or other Absurdists, but his work remains a striking example of modernism. This edition of Coffeehouse Chronicles will include a panel discussion about Witkacy with invited guests: Jadwiga Kosicka-Gerould (writer and translator); Krystyna Lipinska-Illakowicz (Lecturer at Yale University's Department of Slavic Languages & Literatures); Daniel Pinchbeck (writer); Natalia Korczakowska (theater director and Artistic Director of Warsaw's Studio Theater); and Eri Nox (playwright). The panel will be moderated by the Director of CUNY's Segal Theater Center, Frank Hentschker. This edition will also include four short stage readings directed by Zenon Kruszelnicki (Gyubal Wahazar), Daniel Irizarry (The Madman and the Nun), Natalia Korczakowska (Narcotics: Peyote), Eri Nox (They).

Lecture | Sovereignty in China and the Long Legacies of History


A quest for sovereignty characterizes China’s modern history: charting an uninterrupted course since the nineteenth-century Opium Wars, it reflects the country’s tortuous journey within the history of international law. The current territorial disputes in the South and East China Seas, the reunification with Taiwan, and the difficulties with the autonomous regions are all related to the most recent definition of China as a sovereign state, and to the introduction of international law.

Talk | Forage From Fire: A Photographer Turns Her Lens On Personal Tragedy


On October 8, 2017, the Atlas Peak wildfire roared through the neighborhood of photographer Norma I. Quintana, destroying her home and studio. Just days after the smoke cleared Quintana’s documentarian instincts kicked in and she started making work with remnants she salvaged from the ashes. With her film and cameras gone, she turned to her iPhoneX and began her first digital body of work called Forage From Fire. The sequence of images includes jewelry, camera bodies, Christmas ornaments, pendants, doll parts and kitchen tools, framed by the black plastic gloves issued for fire clean-up. The series was featured in a solo exhibition at San Francisco Camerawork in October 2018 and has garnered worldwide press coverage.

Discussion | Ending Poverty: Transforming the Systemic Structures Responsible for Perpetuating Poverty


Inequality is at the highest level since just before the 1929 depression, with wages stagnant or declining for most Americans. To address the increasing economic divide, many grassroots organizations are working to combat the challenges faced by low- and middle-income Americans. Representatives from New York’s anti-poverty movement will discuss how we can transform the systemic structures responsible for perpetuating poverty and hunger; how to generate political momentum for better jobs, expanded access to work, and protections for low-wage workers and the unemployed; and how to give voice to America’s poor, and empower them to be active in systemic socioeconomic change. With: -- Reverend Liz Theoharis, Director of Kairos Center for Religions, Rights, and Social Justice and founder of the Poverty Initiative -- Frances Fox Piven, internationally renowned social scientist & activist, and Professor of Political Science and Sociology at CUNY Graduate Center -- Deyanira Del Río, Co-Director of the New Economy Project -- Veyom Bahl, Managing Director of the Survival Program at Robin Hood -- Stephanie Luce, Professor of Labor Studies and Sociology, CUNY Graduate Center.

Gallery Talk | Made in New York City: The Business of Folk Art: Exhibition Tour


Folk art has flourished in the heart of New York City since the eighteenth century, contrary to popular belief that it was a rural genre that reflected local tastes, traditions, and needs. Around 100 works of art by self-taught artists tell the story about New York City as the center of America’s financial and commercial world from two perspectives simultaneously: “The Art of Business” portrays the people and places that were part of the city’s thrumming commercial life, and “The Business of Art” highlights the diverse mediums and formats used by the artists, artisans, and manufacturers. This tour of the exhibition is conducted by museum gallery guides.

From prehistoric Europe to the 20th century, societies have employed the principles of mapping in various forms. Dr. Matthew Edney, professor of geography and the Osher professor in the history of cartography at Southern Maine University, discusses his years of research that produced six volumes on cartography and how it has been practiced around the world through the ages.  Under Dr. Edney’s leadership, The History of Cartography Project, a research, editorial, and publishing venture that treats maps as cultural artifacts, has drawn international attention for its monumental vision and scope. Prepared for both the scholarly and lay audiences, the resulting multi-volume History of Cartography series offers the interpretive structure necessary to assess, appreciate, and analyze maps from all periods and cultures. Hear from the visionary researcher himself, and learn about his extensive efforts to re-frame the thinking mechanism on the history of cartography and the history of mapping.

Lecture | Reckless: Henry Kissinger and the Tragedy of Vietnam


Using newly available archival material from the Nixon Presidential Library, Kissinger's personal papers, and material from the archives in Vietnam, Robert K. Brigham, a specialist on the history of U.S. foreign policy, punctures the myth of Kissinger as an infallible mastermind. Instead, he constructs a portrait of a rash, opportunistic, and suggestible politician. It was personal political rivalries, the domestic political climate, and strategic confusion that drove Kissinger's actions. There was no great master plan or Bismarckian theory that supported how the US continued the war or conducted peace negotiations. Its length was doubled for nothing but ego and poor judgment. The American war in Vietnam was concluded in 1973 after eight years of fighting, bloodshed, and loss. Yet the terms of the truce that ended the war were effectively identical to what had been offered to the Nixon administration four years earlier. Those four years cost America and Vietnam thousands of lives and billions of dollars, and they were the direct result of the supposed master plan of the most important voice in American foreign policy: Henry Kissinger. Robert. K. Brigham is the Shirley Ecker Boskey Professor of History and International Relations at Vassar College. He is a specialist on the history of U.S. foreign policy. His fellowships include the Rockefeller Foundation, the Mellon Foundation, and the National Endowment for Humanities. Brigham is author or co-author of nine books, among them Iraq, Vietnam, and the Limits of American Power (PublicAffairs, 2008) and Argument Without End (PublicAffairs, 1999).

Discussion | The Legacy Of Fourteen Time Grammy Winning Jazz Musician 


A discussion on legendary jazz artist Duke Ellington's music.  Edward Kennedy "Duke" Ellington was an American composer, pianist, and leader of a jazz orchestra, which he led from 1923 until his death over a career spanning more than fifty years.  Ellington was noted for his inventive use of the orchestra, or big band, and for his eloquence and charisma. He earned 14 Grammy awards from 1959 to 2000, three of which were posthumous and a total of 24 nominations. His reputation continued to rise after he died, and he was awarded a posthumous Pulitzer Prize Special Award for music in 1999.

Conference | The Wars of Peace: The Mundane Violence of the Victorians


The title is taken from Kipling’s "White Man’s Burden," and both the source and the word we have cut, ‘savage,’ hangs over the whole conference. The unspoken idea of savagery, which Kipling meant to define the targets of British colonial despoilment, can of course speak to British policies and military actions, but also to the daily experience of bodily pain felt by so many Victorians, victims of domestic violence, substandard living conditions, untreated illnesses. Yet the spectacular claims of the word ‘savage’ can make us expect to see violence as a spectacle. Instead, this conference wants to see violence as the everyday way of life in the 19th century: the wars that constituted 19th c peacetime, the daily wars at home and the endless wars abroad.  SPEAKERS: Meredith Martin (Princeton) Lara Kriegel (Indiana) Holly Furneaux (Cardiff U) Nasser Mufti (Illinois at Chicago) Cornelia Pearsall (Smith College) Aeron Hunt (Boston College) Zarena Aslami (Michigan State) Anjuli Raza Kolb (Williams College)

Discussion | From The Margins: Queer Archives


The archive is a powerful place. Whose stories are told? What materials are kept? How can archives serve their communities? With the rise of LGBTQ archives, archivist-activists are asking important questions about the nature of archival work. From sourcing material to classification, activist-archivists are changing the way we collect, organize, and preserve materials in the LGBTQ community. This panel explores the history and importance of queer archives, including recent developments in technology to preserve LGBTQ legacies. Panelists Michelle O'Brien (NYC Trans Oral History Project) and Amy Beth (Lesbian Herstory Archive) will be present for a conversation on the state of LGBTQ archives, from recent trends to challenges and opportunities.

Lecture | Neuroethics:Technology, the Brain and Mental Health


From your DNA analysis to your digital footprint, modern science gives us much to learn about and play with. Do we even understand, much less dedicate enough time, to the ethical considerations associated with these marvelous developments? Reflection has never been more important than at this time, when technology has the potential for huge impact on brain function and mental health across one’s lifespan. The discipline of “neuroethics” works to provide us with an academic foundation for such reflection. Researchers and their funders want and need to learn more from us how to have meaningful discussion enabling them to better handle the ethical considerations. What shall we tell them? Speaker Cynthia Joyce is Executive Director of the MQ Foundation, a new charity supporting research for better understanding, treatment, and prevention of mental illness.

Discussion | Nationalism and Mortality


Observable from the rise of the Tea Party and the 2016 election, some middle- and lower-income white Americans have thrown their support behind conservative politicians who pledge to make life great again for people "like them". However, the health implications of such “backlash governance” can be deadly. Prominent expert on gun violence and mental illness Jonathan Metzl’s book Dying of Whiteness demonstrates how right-wing backlash policies have mortal consequences—even for the voters they promise to help. Metzl and Christina Greer, Associate Professor of Political Science at Fordham University, will discuss how intolerance and racism contribute towards fueling policies that can have potentially deadly consequences to all.

Discussion | Representation in Art: What Does It Mean?


Each season since 2012, artists and writers across disciplines have gathered for a year-long series devoted to unpacking artistic and cultural terms as their meaning shifts--and may become more resonant or ambiguous--over time. This year, the series will revolve around "representation," particularly as the term at once conjures critical strategies in art from previous decades; the necessity of diverse publics; and, against the backdrop of precarious governing institutions, recent impulses toward non-representative social structures on both ends of the political spectrum. The conversation features visual artist Adama Delphine Fawundu, poet Paolo Javier, and composer and vocalist Amirtha Kidambi.

Gallery Talk | Made in New York City: The Business of Folk Art: Exhibition Tour


Folk art has flourished in the heart of New York City since the eighteenth century, contrary to popular belief that it was a rural genre that reflected local tastes, traditions, and needs. Around 100 works of art by self-taught artists tell the story about New York City as the center of America’s financial and commercial world from two perspectives simultaneously: “The Art of Business” portrays the people and places that were part of the city’s thrumming commercial life, and “The Business of Art” highlights the diverse mediums and formats used by the artists, artisans, and manufacturers. This tour of the exhibition is conducted by museum gallery guides.

Dr. Hsing-Lih Chou, one of the pioneers of Campus Folk Song, will guide the audience through the beauty and virtue found in the Chinese words that remain reminiscent to many in the Chinese communities around the world.

Gallery Talk | Artist Talk: Phantom Paradise


Delano Dunn’s first solo exhibition with the gallery is a recollection of the 1992 L.A. Riots from the perspective of a child who watched his neighborhood burn. Thirteen years old at the time, Dunn was unaware of the significance of the events happening around him—how they would shape the way people saw him—and how he would come to know exactly what it meant to be black and from the ghetto. The works—both large and small-scale layered paintings with collage and mixed-media on panel—explore the artists’ fleeting possession of innocence just days before its corruption. An innocence, that allowed Dunn to see brilliant colors in the night sky as his neighborhood burned, or wave at trucks of National Guardsmen “parading” down the street without really understanding what was going on or why.

Discussion | Facebook Made Me Do It: Social Media and Democracy


Social media platforms recently came under scrutiny after they failed to prevent the creation of fake accounts aimed at manipulating the 2016 U.S. presidential elections. The impact of social media on democracy and public debate is felt in many other ways: today’s algorithms, for instance, tend to encourage the spread of emotionally charged opinions, and create rabbit holes of converging viewpoints rather that exposing us to conflicting perspectives; the most extreme views or those that express moral outrage also tend to gain more traction than moderate and balanced opinions. At the same time, social media have provided new platforms for democratic debate, encouraging a broader range of individuals to engage in political dialogue, and have made a diversity of channels available to users on which they can express themselves. This is a conversation on social media and democracy between Joan Donovan, Director of the Technology and Social Change Research Project at the Harvard Kennedy School and Célia Zolynski and Judith Rochfeld, Law Professors from Paris I Sorbonne.

Discussion | Strike Wave: Organized Labor in the 21st-Century Workplace


The American labor movement is experiencing an exciting revival. Low wages, exploitative practices, poor conditions, and lack of support are motivating workers to unionize and, when necessary, to strike. Organizing and unionizing are sweeping through both new and traditional workplaces, including online media, magazines, newsrooms, retail stores, and diners. At this event, folks involved in the contemporary labor movement will discuss recent successful rebellions across the country—from teachers to graduate students, museum staff to fast-food workers—the causes for this wave of strikes, how social media interacts with unionizing and strike efforts, and what lessons can be taken for workers, organizers, and activists. With: -- Eric Blanc, writer for Jacobin and author of Red State Revolt: The Teachers’ Strike Wave and Working-Class Politics -- Kim Kelly, writer, labor activist, columnist for Teen Vogue’s “No Class” and council member of the Writers Guild of America East -- Bianca Cunningham, writer and organizer at Labor Notes, co-chair of NYC DSA, and former Communications Workers District 1 -- LeNair Xavier, worker and organizer at The Pleasure Chest, represented by RWDSU.

Discussion | Past And Future Of The Queer Press


From the Stonewall era to the age of the podcast, activists and journalists speak about the the legacy of the queer press across the decades. Founded as an activist organization that built on the momentum surrounding the Stonewall Riots, the Gay Liberation Front organized marches on Timemagazine and The Village Voice, and published its own newspaper, Come Out!, the first gay liberation newspaper in the world. Come Out! provided openly queer media exposure for many activists, writers, and artists who would later take on national prominence, including Rita Mae Brown, Dennis Altman, Sylvia Rivera, Diana Davies, and many more. In conjunction with the exhibition Love & Resistance: Stonewall 50, founding members of the Gay Liberation Front, Perry Brass and Karla Jay, speak with Kathy Tu and Tobin Low, co-hosts of WNYC Studios’ podcast Nancy, about the rise of the queer press in the 1960s and 70s, and the lasting impact of its legacy.

Discussion | Discussion On American Women Artists Working Before 1945


American women artists working before 1945 had to navigate societal expectations of women’s domestic roles with their drive to be  professionals. These artists often faced difficult choices–-sacrificing in their personal lives or in their careers. Despite evident talent and success, most fell into obscurity with their death. In this interactive session, you can discover and closely examine works by women artists who collectively paint a picture of a changing America. Host Rena Tobey’s greatest passion is making art accessible, invigorating, insightful, and fun. She taught art history at Connecticut State University. Now, she teaches at the 92nd Street Y, conducts lively tours of museum collections, and provides talks on American art for community organizations.

Lecture | Hanoi's War: An International History of the War for Peace in Vietnam


While most historians of the Vietnam War focus on the origins of U.S. involvement and the Americanization of the conflict, Lien-Hang T. Nguyen examines the international context in which North Vietnamese leaders pursued the war and American intervention ended. This riveting narrative takes the reader from the marshy swamps of the Mekong Delta to the bomb-saturated Red River Delta, from the corridors of power in Hanoi and Saigon to the Nixon White House, and from the peace negotiations in Paris to high-level meetings in Beijing and Moscow, all to reveal that peace never had a chance in Vietnam. Hanoi's War renders transparent the internal workings of America's most elusive enemy and shows that the war fought during the peace negotiations was bloodier and much more wide-ranging than it had been previously. Using never-before-seen archival materials from the Vietnam Ministry of Foreign Affairs, as well as materials from other archives around the world, Nguyen explores the politics of war-making and peace-making not only from the North Vietnamese perspective but also from that of South Vietnam, the Soviet Union, China, and the United States, presenting a uniquely international portrait. Lien-Hang T. Nguyen is the Dorothy Borg Associate Professor in the History of the United States and East Asia at Columbia University. She received her B.A. from the University of Pennsylvania and her Ph.D. from Yale University.

Clothing can be the most important clue in a criminal case, but dress and accessories play a more complex role than we might suspect. Join fashion historian Alison Matthews David, as she investigates the theme of crime and clothing as weapon, evidence, and disguise. The presentation shows how innovations in forensic science helped investigators solve crimes long before DNA testing, and demonstrates the cleverness of dress worn in mugshots, including the 1920s portraits in the Sydney Police and Justice Museum’s collection.

Lecture | Advocating Overlord: The D-Day Strategy and the Atomic Bomb


“Well there it is. It won’t work, but you must bloody well make it,” said the chief of Britain’s military leaders, when he gave orders to begin planning for what became known as Operation Overlord. While many view D-Day as one of the most successful operations of World War II, most aren’t aware of the intensive year of planning and political tension between the Allies that preceded the amphibious military landing on June 6, 1944. This intriguing history reveals how President Franklin D. Roosevelt altered his attitude toward Winston Churchill and became an advocate for Operation Overlord. Philip Padgett challenges the known narrative of this watershed moment in history and illuminates the diplomatic link between Normandy and the atomic bomb. He shows how the Allies came to agree on a liberation strategy that began with D-Day—and the difficult forging of British and American scientific cooperation that produced the atomic bomb. At its core this story is about how a new generation of leaders found the courage to step beyond national biases in a truly allied endeavor to carry out one of history’s most successful military operations. Philip Padgett spent forty years working in national security and preparedness analysis in the military, government, and the private sector. As deputy intelligence adviser at the U.S. Arms Control and Disarmament Agency, he supported negotiations for five international treaties and agreements. On contract, he has led integrated analyses for studies of the East-West military balance, nuclear doctrine and deterrence, NATO command and control, and arms control compliance monitoring.
