Talk | Investigating Nonhuman Consciousness (online)


Humans make many decisions that affect nonhumans without always knowing whether these nonhumans are conscious. Is there a test for nonhuman consciousness that can be useful for impact assessments and policy decisions despite the limitations on our knowledge about other minds? In this panel, Jonathan Birch will present his proposed strategy for investigating invertebrate consciousness and Susan Schneider will present her proposed test for AI consciousness. Birch and Schneider will then discuss the pros and cons of these tests, as well as the similarities and differences between testing for consciousness in these different nonhuman populations.

Lecture | Class Traitors: One Percenters for Radical Redistribution (online)


Most rich people don’t seem to have a problem with massive economic inequality, justifying their wealth with reference to their hard work and moral character. But some wealthy people don’t buy these justifications, because they recognize that they have had "unearned" advantages, and see themselves as beneficiaries of an unfair and unjust system. They want to use their social advantages—money, connections, and influence—to dismantle those same advantages and the social conditions that produce them. Though they are relatively few in number, these “class traitors” merit study because—like white antiracists working against white supremacy, but unlike most social movement actors—they are challenging systems that have benefitted them. Based on over 100 interviews with these rich redistributors and their non-wealthy movement partners, as well as ethnographic fieldwork among them, Class Traitors investigates this process of using power to give up power. In so doing, I argue, these wealthy confront deeply taken-for-granted cultural narratives about accumulation as the basis for worthy personhood and parenthood. In partnership with non-wealthy activists, they offer a vision of the common good that re-conceptualizes their own self-interest and challenges dominant ideas of who deserves what and why. Presented by Rachel Sherman, Professor of Sociology.

Talk | Humorous Speech as Bigotry (online)


Sometimes you might tell a joke, and members of your audience find it offensive. At other times, you might object to someone else’s joke, even though they themselves see nothing wrong with it. How are we to adjudicate these disagreements? Under what circumstances is “I’m only joking” a legitimate moral excuse? In this presentation, I explore the factors at play in determining what we should, and should not, be permitted to say in jest. Speaker Paul Butterfield is a Ph.D. candidate at The Graduate Center, CUNY.

Opening Reception | Matt Kinney: ANIM: Ink, Oil


This new series of painting is an exciting transition for Kinney as he is best known for assemblage and sculpture. “Anim”, the Latin root word of animal, means life, soul or breath. This exhibition features select large-format monochromatic oil paintings on stretched canvas and wood panels. On view as well are works on paper with Japanese Sumi Ink, which inspired the oil paintings. Kinney has been looking at pre-historic cave paintings as well as animals depicted therein, such as the Chavet caves in Nice, Southern France.   Emerging from the inextricable interplay of light and dark, Kinney’s black and white ink paintings capture the ever-shifting subjectivity shaped by shadow. Cast in Japanese Sumi ink, each unique painting explores the trajectories of human and animal, natural and architectural form- what is revealed or hidden?  A variety of hand-torn, heavy weight papers add textural dimension to each mark and brush stroke, as well as through the immediacy of brushstrokes to depict the action within the artwork

Discussion | The Fall of Zahak: The Revolutionary Possibilities in Iran


This event brings together Iranian scholars, students, activists and performers to make sense of the recent uprising in Iran, and the brutal response from its government. They'll start by contextualizing the broader issues currently facing Iranian people (e.g., political participation, human rights, freedom of speech, gender equity, rights of minorities, economic conditions), Iran’s complex relationship with Islam, democracy, gender equity, and the west, as well as its history of feminist movements and the 1979 revolution. It will outline how the Islamic Government has conducted itself over the last four decades, and the ways in which such theocracy has created, fostered and exacerbated various hierarchies, inequalities and injustices. The recent uprising was sparked by the tragic death of a 22-year-old Iranian-Kurdish woman, (Mahsa Amini), who died as a result of police brutality for displaying improper hijab. At inception, the protests were girl and women-led and conceptualized as a Gen Z movement - but rapidly grew to widespread unrest and supported by men, ethic and other minorities, garnering ongoing mass support inside and outside of the country, from a plethora of diverse Iranians. We ask if this revolutionary uprising can only end in regime change, how this may come about, and what Iran might look like afterwards.

Lecture | The Kids Aren't Alright: Afro-German Afrofuturism and the Fight for Futurity


Drawing on theoretical models culled from Black (German) studies, Afrofuturism, performance studies and queer theory, Dr. Priscilla Layne will analyze examples of Black German artists’ engagement with “future-making” through fantasy and speculative and science fiction. From the “Afronauts” painting cycle of visual artist Daniel Kojo Schrade and the poetry of Philipp Khabo Köpsell, to the prose of Sharon Dodua Otoo and the plays and performances of Olivia Wenzel and Simone Dede Ayivi, Black German artists have increasingly employed Afrofuturist tropes in order to critique Eurocentricism, uncover German racism and confront German colonialism. Speaker Priscilla Layne is Associate Professor of German, Adjunct Assistant Professor of African and Afro-American Studies, and the Director of Graduate Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Book Discussion | The Revolutionary: Samuel Adams (in-person and online)


Thomas Jefferson asserted that if there was any leader of the Revolution, "Samuel Adams was the man." A singular figure at a singular moment, Adams packaged and amplified the Boston Massacre. He helped to mastermind the Boston Tea Party. He employed every tool in an innovative arsenal to rally a town, a colony, and eventually a band of colonies behind him, creating the cause that created a country. For his efforts he became the most wanted man in America: When Paul Revere rode to Lexington in 1775, it was to warn Samuel Adams that he was about to be arrested for treason. Pulitzer Prize-winning biographer Stacy Schiff brings her masterful skills to Adams's improbable life, illuminating his transformation from aimless son of a well-off family to tireless, beguiling radical who mobilized the colonies. Arresting, original, and deliriously dramatic, this is a long-overdue chapter in the history of our nation.

Book Discussion | Saxophone Colossus: The Life and Music of Sonny Rollins (online)


Known as the "Saxophone Colossus," Sonny Rollins is widely acknowledged as one of the greatest jazz improvisers of all time, winning Grammys, the Austrian Cross of Honor, Sweden's Polar Music Prize and a National Medal of Arts. The story of Sonny Rollins--innovative, unpredictable, larger than life--is the story of jazz itself, and Sonny's own narrative is as timeless and timely as the art form he represents. Part jazz oral history told in the musicians' own words, part chronicle of one man's quest for social justice and spiritual enlightenment, Aidan Levy's is the definitive biography of one of the most enduring and influential artists in jazz and American history. Author Aidan Levy is the author of Dirty Blvd.: The Life and Music of Lou Reed and editor of Patti Smith on Patti Smith: Interviews and Encounters.

Concert | Mexican-American Singer-Violinist-Composer


Versatility defines the NYC-based singer, violinist and composer Mireya Ines Ramos, better known as Mireya. The classically trained performer's musical influences encompass classic salsa, old-school hip-hop, contemporary merengue, improv jazz and electropop, but her signature flourish is in the unmistakable authenticity of the traditional folkloric delivery that elevates her dulcet vocals. A Latin Grammy award-winning bandleader and founder of the esteemed all-woman mariachi band Flor de Toloache, Mireya has established herself as one of the city's most exciting and in-demand solo acts and a vanguard performer for the current generation of Mexican-American artists. For this headlining show, Mireya will be performing music from her recently released self-titled debut album.
