Time: 12:30pm - 2:30pm
Location: NYU Wagner, 295 Lafayette Street, 2nd Fl

Laksmi Pamuntjak will talk about her novel, The Question of Red, and how it is part of a literary and political excavation of a chilling chapter in her nation's history, the massacre of up to one million accused communists between 1965 and 1968. The novel was published in Indonesian in October 2012 and is a national bestseller. The Question of Red tells the story of two lovers, Amba and Bhisma, driven apart by one of the bloodiest Communist purges in the 20th century. In the novel, the lives of the central characters reinterpret the Mahabharata - that timeless allegory of war within a family - and moves from rural Java to Europe and to the prison camps of Buru Island, where some 12,000 alleged Communists were incarcerated without trial during the Suharto dictatorship.

This talk is part of the Southeast Asia Network NY, a consortium including NYU and Columbia.

04/02/2014 Information and Technology in Human Services: Who's at the Table and How We Can Work Together More Effectively

 Information and Technology in Human Services: Who's at the Table and How We Can Work Together More Effectively
Sponsored by Alumni in Performance Measurement and Management, the NYU Wagner Office of Alumni Relations, and the New York Consortium of Evaluators

Date: Wednesday, April 2, 2014
Time: 9:00am-10:30am
Location: 295 Lafayette Street, 2nd Fl., NYC
                   Rudin Family Forum for Civic Dialogue

Different groups of stakeholders in the human service sector (nonprofit leaders, policy makers, government funders, philanthropic funders, evaluators, service delivery staff, clients, etc.) understand the role of data and technology in the human services sector in different ways. Lack of coordination among these various players leads to very concrete challenges in the development of information systems. Nonprofits have a lot of potential in using data and technology in new and innovative ways, but they often struggle with the most mundane challenges of data management, basic technology support, and meeting the requirements of government and philanthropic funders. How can the human services sector push past these basic challenges to benefit from the great potential that data and modern technology hold? The panelists will discuss these challenges with an eye towards solutions that are relevant for both individual organizations/projects as well as the human services sector as a whole.

Panelists:
Ivy Pool – Executive Director, HHS Connect at the NYC Mayor’s Office of Operations
Marlowe Greenberg - Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Foothold Technology
Brad Dudding – Chief Operating Officer, Center for Employment Opportunity
Derek Coursen, Director of Planning & Informatics at Public Health Solutions
