10/06/2015 Demystifying JFK - Fall Lecture and Conversation with Timothy Naftali

"The American presidency is a formidable, exposed, and somewhat mysterious institution...[I]t is the vortex into which all the elements of national decision are irresistibly drawn. And it is mysterious because the essence of ultimate decision remains impenetrable to the observer - often, indeed, to the decider himself." - John F. Kennedy

The co-author of two books detailing aspects of JFK's career, and an editor of his famous tapes, Timothy Naftali is completing a biography for Norton that looks at the entire presidency in light of newly available documents, oral histories and tapes. Naftali finds a Kennedy who is more pragmatic and political than his inner circle acknowledged and more skeptical of the Cold War and American power than revisionist critics ever realized. And, as Naftali also discovered, JFK's elusiveness was not accidental. In his talk, Naftali will explain how Kennedy, his family and his closest literary allies helped to cultivate the mysteries that would long bedevil biographers. 
  The author will be introduced by Philip Kunhardt, Founding Director.    Reception to follow.

09/17/2015 "Fugitive Geometries: Quilts by Elizabeth Yew" Opening Reception
Join us in celebrating the opening of Fugitive Geometries: Quilts by Elizabeth Yew, the fall 2015 exhibition at the Gallery Space at Wagner.
 
Curated by NYU Gallatin’s Ann Chwatsky and NYU Wagner’s Frankie Crescioni-Santoni, Fugitive Geometries features quilts and textile work by New York City artist Elizabeth Yew. Executed with traditional quilting patterns and techniques, the seven pieces comprising the exhibit span nearly 20 years and are powerful, vibrant representations of Yew's craftsmanship and exceptional panache for compositional and color juxtaposition. Homages to Chinese-American culture, childhood memory, and family life emerge as discernible themes of the exhibit.

09/16/2015 Facilitating Discussion in the Classroom

Discussion-based teaching provides a useful complement—or even alternative—to lectures. Leading productive discussion classes, however, requires both preparation and practice. Effective discussions occur when they are prepared in advance, when they are led with a purpose, and when they are summarized and assessed. Good discussions lead to further thinking and more directed discussion. In this workshop we will discuss the principles of effective discussion-based teaching. Among topics considered will be ways to begin a discussion, ways to conclude a discussion, and things to avoid during a discussion. Participants will have the opportunity to apply the specific strategies considered during the workshop. Breakfast will be served.

06/04/2015 Measures of Public Infrastructure Service Sector Recovery from Disasters

Measures of Public Infrastructure Service Sector Recovery from Disasters
Presented by the Center for Urban Science and Progress Research Seminar Series

Date: Thursday, June  4th,  2015 
Time: 4:00pm
Location: Jacobs Seminar Room
                Center for  Urban Science and  Progress at New  York  University
                1 MetroTech Center, 19th Floor Brooklyn, NY 11201

PLEASE RSVP HERE

The wide range of frequent disasters the  world has experienced and is expected to experience point to the need for responses that reduce consequences that complement efforts to reduce the initial causes  of these events. Society is dependent on public services, such as transportation, electric power, and communication to reduce the consequences of such hazards throughout the time period over which a disaster occurs and especially following a disaster in order to rebound quickly. First, measures of recovery are presented for electric power and mass transit to capture patterns of recovery for service users in extreme events. Second, ways of reducing consequences based on introducing service flexibility are provided. Finally, some fundamental barriers to introducing effective approaches to rapid recovery are introduced in terms of institutional arrangements and human behavior that will need  to be overcome to reduce the consequences of disasters in the coming years.
