Discussion | How To Create A Career In Cybersecurity


Seeking a career with high powered growth potential in the information technology industry? The highest value job skills IT hiring managers seek are in cybersecurity, cloud computing, data analytics, the Internet of Things, and converged infrastructure, says a recent industry report. However, all of this data and connectivity needs a key ingredient: security. Each day there appears to be some news story about cyberattacks, security breaches, phishing scams, or allegations of election hacking. This exposure translates into an ever increasing demand for qualified professionals as the potential for the number of jobs is expected to reach 2 million in 2019. Theodore Henderson shows you how to get started and how to expand your career in this exciting and well-compensated professional area, even if you are not a technical person.

Discussion | Reimagining The Job Interview


Everyone knows how to prepare for an interview: look at the website, review the job description, check out the interviewer on LinkedIn, and prepare answers to questions like "What is your greatest weakness?". All valuable steps to take, no doubt.  But what if we could reimagine the process?  During interviews we often assume that interviewers have all the power, or that our needs as a candidate are not important.  It turns out, perhaps surprisingly, that the employer actually has an interest in meeting our needs.  They want to hire someone who can do the job, but also grow and succeed in their organization.  In this workshop we'll explore strategies to help you understand what the employer wants, the power you have in the process, and how to strengthen your approach to interviewing. Coach Win Sheffield will discuss how to: Recognize and leverage your power in the interview process Play the interview game with renewed confidence Strategically demonstrate your value before, during, and after the interview.

Lecture | Immigrant Integration and Social Solidarity in Pluralist Welfare States


Social solidarity is a key element of redistributive welfare states. Such solidarity is, however, not a given and must be built through political, legal, economic and cultural means. Each of the agents of that solidarity has weakened over the past generation: social democratic parties, legislatures, trade unions, and the various institutions that create a shared national culture. With the austerity of neo-liberalism, the growth of migration of various sorts, and the emergence of identitarian politics, we have moved from “what belongs to whom” to “who belongs to us.” David Abraham of the University of Miami will review and assess each of these developments for Germany and for the U.S. and then examine the prospects for immigrant integration policies that might build or rebuild solidarity.

Lecture | Data Colonialism and the Hollowing Out of the Social World


This talk will introduce the argument of the speakers’ new book, The Costs of Connection: How Data Colonizes Human Life and Appropriates it for Capitalism (Stanford University Press, August 2019) and foreground its implications for the social world and social knowledge. Nick Couldry and Ulises Ali Mejías argue that the role of data in society needs to be grasped as not only a development of capitalism, but as the start of a new phase in human history that rivals in importance the emergence of historic colonialism. This new "data colonialism" is based not on the extraction of natural resources or labor, but on the appropriation of human life through data, paving the way for a further stage of capitalism.

Lecture | Refuge Beyond Reach: How Rich Democracies Repel Asylum Seekers


From the U.S. to the U.K., governments in the Global North have developed increasingly elaborate techniques for denying sanctuary to asylum seekers. Fearing economic decline, cultural upheaval, and threats to national security, more and more rich, democratic countries resort to draconian policies to limit who can cross their borders. Sociologist David FitzGerald (UC San Diego) uncovers how these governments manage to comply with the letter of immigration law while violating its spirit, and suggests ways in which asylum seekers can nevertheless fight to protect their universal rights.

Talk | Being an Ethicist: Exploring Ethical Dilemmas


“After twelve years writing the popular New York Times Magazine column, I examine how the moral landscape – and my own moral reasoning – changed over that time. Plus: how I got, how I did, and what I learned from my unusual job. Are those questions real? Did I ever get one wrong? (Or, depending on your perspective, right?)” Randy Cohen’s first professional work was writing humor pieces, essays, and stories for newspapers and magazines (The New Yorker, Harpers, The Atlantic, Young Love Comics). His first television work was writing for Late Night With David Letterman, for which he won three Emmy awards. For 12 years he wrote “The Ethicist,” a weekly column for The New York Times Magazine. In his book, Be Good: How to Navigate the Ethics of Everything, Cohen helps readers locate their own internal ethical compasses as he delivers answers to life’s most challenging dilemmas. He is currently the host of Person Place Thing, a public radio program.

This interdisciplinary symposium explores a crucial but little-studied issue with growing importance today: what is the value of harm suffered by victims, whether of terrorism, crime or natural disasters. In law, politics, economics and public opinion, answers differ widely, and unequal treatment is the norm. Across the globe, victims evoke a range of feelings, from compassion verging on celebrations of heroism, to denial, anger, indifference and even repulsion. Those reactions translate into wide variations in legal and economic responses to their harm. The symposium will bring together experts to compare perspectives from the United States and France. They will be joined by professors of law, economics, history and philosophy. It will be held as part of the Matrice Memory Program, an international transdiscilplinary research program supported by the Government of France, and specifically a section of this program dedicated to memory of 11/13 terrorist attacks in Paris.

Lecture | Carl von Clausewitz and Contemporary International Relations Theory


In his writings on the topic of war, Carl von Clausewitz masterfully combined practical insight with theoretical reflection. His analysis of the intimate relationship between war and politics had and still has a profound impact on military practice and on political science scholarship alike. It is thus surprising that when scholars in the political science subfield of International Relations recently turned to political practices as an object of study, they simply ignored the Prussian General. In his presentation, Tobias Wille will argue that they did so to their own detriment. As he will demonstrate, Clausewitz’ writings on war offer valuable insights into the practices of international relations. To clarify what Clausewitz can contribute to the so-called “practice turn in IR,” Wille will offer an interpretation of his theory of war as a theory of practice. He will then illustrate the analytical potential of such a theory of practice through a discussion of what Clausewitzians have written about the Vietnam War. Wille will conclude by arguing that Clausewitz can help connect the practice turn in IR, which in its current form largely builds on constructivist theorizing, to the realist tradition of international thought.

Discussion | Countering Al Qaeda and ISIS 18 Years After 9/11


As we approach the 18th anniversary of the attacks of 9/11, social media and online propaganda have come to play an outsized role in radicalizing and mobilizing individuals in the West to join and act on behalf of violent Islamist terrorist movements. Beyond kinetic efforts on the battlefield and counter terrorism investigations abroad and at home, countering violent extremist (CVE) initiatives are increasingly being considered as viable policy options to mitigate the threat. With: -- Mitch Silber, Former Director of Intelligence Analysis, NYPD; Adjunct Professor of International and Public Affairs -- Jesse Morton, Former Islamist Activist; Leader of Revolution Muslim -- Host and Moderator: Stuart Gottlieb

Lecture | Original Copies: The Pre-History of the Facsimile


Called "the nightmare of book collectors" by John Carter and Nicolas Barker, facsimiles do not hold a particularly revered position in bibliography and book history. The opposite of the venerated "original," facsimiles are seen as a compromise at best and a downright deception at worst. This talk looks to re-examine the idea of the facsimile by exploring its pre-history in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Before the invention of lithography and photography in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries (not to mention current advances in digital reproduction), scholars and printers employed creative technical strategies to reproduce the visual qualities of particular textual artefacts like inscriptions or manuscripts. Exploring a few case studies, this talk will think about how and why early print copied material objects that came before - and, in the process, rethink and expand our understanding of what facsimile means. Speakers include Jane Raisch, University of York

Lecture | The War Scare That Wasn’t: Able Archer 83 and the Myths of the Second Cold War


Did the Cold War of the 1980s nearly turn hot? Much has been made of NATO’s November 1983 Able Archer 83 command post exercise, which the literature typically casts as having nearly precipitated a nuclear war. Warsaw Pact policy-makers, according to the conventional wisdom, suspected that the exercise was more than just a rehearsal of nuclear escalation and concluded that a surprise nuclear attack was imminent, nearly launching a preemptive strike of their own. This talk overturns this narrative using new, international evidence from the political, military, and intelligence archives of the Eastern bloc. First, it shows that the much-touted Warsaw Pact intelligence effort to assess Western intentions and capabilities, Project RIaN, which supposedly triggered Eastern fears of a surprise attack was nowhere near operational at the time of Able Archer 83. Second, it presents an account of the East’s sanguine observations of Able Archer 83, disproving accounts which allege that the exercise nearly escalated to nuclear war. In doing so, it advances debates not only in the historiography of the late Cold War, but also pertaining to the stability of the nuclear peace and the role of perception and misperception in policy-making. Speaker Simon Miles is on the faculty of the Sanford School of Public Policy as an Assistant Professor in 2017.

Discussion | Expanding the World of Literature


How hard is it to remain within our comfort zones when we read and write? How does the writer’s gaze remain unwittingly locked by long-established conventions? As the world’s economic power bases have begun to shift away from Western nations of the past few decades, writers from non-Western conventions have begun to question the boundaries of literature, using rapidly changing social structures to propose a new relationship between reader and writer. Drawing from his new novel, We, the Survivors, Malaysian author Tash Aw discusses ideas of language, race, class and national identity with Mark Mazower.

Discussion | Getting Carbon Tax Rates Right


As presidential candidates, policymakers and businesses take a renewed interest in comprehensive federal climate policy, it's clear that the details of any policy could make or break its success. Carbon taxes are frequently proposed as a cornerstone climate policy solution, but a chief concern for policymakers is how much to charge for each ton of carbon dioxide emissions. Please join leading experts at the Center on Global Energy Policy, the Environmental Defense Fund, and Tufts University to explore approaches for setting carbon tax rates and the implication of different choices, from emissions reductions to energy prices and economic outcomes. Panelists include: Susanne Brooks, Senior Director of U.S. Climate Policy & Analysis at the Environmental Defense Fund; Noah Kaufman, PhD, CGEP Research Scholar; and Gilbert E. Metcalf, PhD, John DiBiaggio Professor of Citizenship and Public Service and Professor of Economics at Tufts University.

Discussion | Conservation Storytelling at National Geographic


Over the last ten years, wildlife storytelling at National Geographic has evolved from stories with a focus on behavior towards features that tackle issues about wildlife conservation and animal welfare. Beautiful wildlife images make people care about the natural world, but the stories that need to be told, the photographs that must be seen, are the ones that shine a light on our relationship with the natural world. Photographers Kate Brooks, Jennifer Hayes, and Kirsten Luce will be in conversation with Sarah Leen, Director of Photography at National Geographic. They share their experiences covering the poaching crisis, climate change, and wildlife tourism.

Talk | Tin Pan Alley Uptown and Down: A Multimedia Presentation with Live Music


Tin Pan Alley Uptown and Down: a multi-media presentation with live music about the talented Upper West Siders who lived in Bloomingdale and worked on Tin Pan Alley. Many of the composers, lyricists, and publishers of the hit songs of the 20th century commuted from the Bloomingdale neighborhood on the upper west side to Tin Pan Alley, just north of Madison Square. To honor these talented former residents of their neighborhood, members of the Bloomingdale Neighborhood History Group have put together a program that combines a multimedia presentation, a history talk, and an update on efforts to landmark the Tin Pan Alley area accompanied by a live performance of music that originated from that storied slice of Manhattan.

Forum | Climate Change, Water and National Security for the Middle East


The Middle East region is considered a climate hotspot due to its natural water scarcity, social tensions and political conflicts. Over the course of the century, Jordan, Palestine, and Israel are projected to experience an average temperature rise of up to 4?C; a general decrease in precipitation of 25 percent regionally and up to 40 percent locally; a shift in rain seasons from winter and spring to autumn; a higher frequency and intensity of extreme weather events such as droughts, flash floods, and forest fires; as well as a growing rate of desertification. Despite the effects of climate change being already observable in the region, little has been done to develop a regional, integrated roadmap for climate-related national security in the region. EcoPeace Middle East, a nonprofit organization with offices in Amman, Ramallah and Tel Aviv, has held roundtables in each of the three cities, to address these issues, resulting in this report. This forum will discuss the scientific findings and policy recommendations to address this looming ecological crisis and its national security implications. Speakers Gidon Bromberg, Israeli Director, EcoPeace Middle East Nada Majdalani, Palestinian Director, EcoPeace Middle East Yana Abu Taleb, Jordanian Director, EcoPeace Middle East Moderator Michael B. Gerrard, Professor and Director, Sabin Center for Climate Change Law, Columbia Law School Event sponsors: Sabin Center for Climate Change Law The Earth Institute EcoPeace Middle East This event is open to the public without charge but registration is required.

Conference | Aligning Corporations with the Sustainable Development Goals


Interest in the private sector’s opportunities and responsibilities with respect to sustainable development and human rights has exploded in recent years, reflected both in the rise of environment, social, and governance considerations in investment decisions as well as in the growth of voluntary initiatives and mandatory sustainability reporting by companies. This interest has only grown since the adoption of the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda in 2015, which established 17 Sustainable Development Goals defining consensus areas needful of global action. And yet, real questions remain as to whether this increased recognition of the importance of non-financial variables has resulted or will result in sustainable and responsible corporate practices and improved outcomes on the ground. Indeed, the proliferation of sustainability initiatives and tools has coincided with a worsening of the world’s problems, including the climate crisis, water stress, deforestation, health crises and malnutrition epidemics, and extreme inequality, which have contributed to increased migration, insecurity, wars and terrorism.

Discussion | The Global Pact for the Environment and Sustainable Development


This conference, the third annual of its kind, will build upon the last two years of diplomatic efforts to promote the Global Pact and discuss opportunities to strengthen international environmental governance.

Specifically, the conference will explore potential connections between 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Global Pact for the Environment, touching upon opportunities for mutual reinforcement and considering priority provisions for Global Pact negotiators to include to maximize impact. Panelists will discuss how a Global Pact could serve the three overarching pillars of the Sustainable Development Agenda, including to promote social inclusion and economic development in addition to environmental protection.

Conference | How to Be an Anti-Capitalist in the 21st Century


Erik Olin Wright spent the last years of his life thinking about ways to challenge and transform capitalist societies. He distilled his thinking in a book, How to Be an Anti-Capitalist in the 21st Century (Verso, 2019). The symposium is designed to launch a debate about the strengths and weaknesses of Wright’s approach. They seek to both honor their colleague’s memory and assure that his ideas become part of current discussions of socialism and socialist strategy. The event will consist of three panels during the day and an evening session that will include tributes to Wright and a keynote by his friend, Ira Katznelson.

Conference | The Climate Crisis, Global Land Use, and Human Rights


A daylong conference on the intersection between land use, the climate crisis and clean energy transition, and human rights. The climate crisis threatens to dramatically alter people’s relationships with the land on which they rely. Meanwhile, many climate solutions are themselves land-intensive, including solar and wind energy, carbon dioxide removal, and finding places for people displaced by climate change to live and grow food, thus potentially increasing competition for land. This conference will analyze the critical role that land plays in achieving climate solutions, the degree to which climate change may impact land’s ability to provide a sustainable ecosystem, and the ways in which these land and climate interactions might affect land rights, human rights, and achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.

Gallery Talk | Artist Talk: Envisioning the Liquid Land


Nicole Awai is a multimedia artist best known for her work that incorporates non-traditional materials—including nail polish, black resin, and found objects—to create forceful artworks with a sculptural edge that explore elements of the ‘American experience’. Her practice investigates the interaction between that which comprises the entirety of the Americas, and its relational influence on the United States. “The history of the Americas is about malleability; the shaping and reshaping of resources and culture. It is an evolving, and revolving phenomena of transformation through the movement of bodies and materials,” Awai states.
