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.

05/04/2015 Jacob K. Javits Visiting Professorship Lecture featuring Anthony M. Bertelli

Who Are the Policy Workers and What Are They Doing? A Citizen’s Perspective on Democratic Accountability in Modern Governance
Co-sponsored by NYU Wagner, NYU’s Office of the Provost, and The Marian B. and Jacob K. Javits Foundation

Date: Monday, May 4, 2015
Time: 5:30pm - 6:30pm Lecture | 6:30pm - 7:30pm Reception
Location: Lipton Hall | 108 West 3rd Street, NYC

Anthony M. Bertelli, NYU Wagner Professor of the Politics of Public Policy and Vice Dean for Academic Affairs and Research, will discuss when and why accountability, an important but elusive democratic value, works from a citizen’s perspective. In the landscape of contemporary governance, it is often difficult for citizens to answer two essential questions: Who is bringing the benefit of policies to the citizen? What are they doing in the process? Popular accountability rests on those questions, and their answers have important incentives for the politicians who represent us.

About the Jacob K. Javits Visiting Professorship:
The Jacob K. Javits Visiting Professorship at NYU was established in 2008 with generous support from The Marian B. and Jacob K. Javits Foundation and its President and Chief Executive Officer, Marian B. Javits. The Professorship honors the memory and accomplishments of the four-term U.S. Republican Senator from New York, the late Honorable Jacob K. Javits, an alumnus of the NYU School of Law, and perpetuates the values and intellectual integrity for which he stood. The Visiting Professorship is awarded to a distinguished individual—an academic, lawyer, policymaker, journalist, historian, philosopher, or former elected official—whose work focuses on an issue close to the Senator’s interests. These areas include: health, civil rights, labor, foreign policy, rights of handicapped individuals, education, and fairness in employment and economic security for working Americans.

This event is part of NYU Wagner's Distinguished Lecture Series.
