Where Art Thou: Women Philosophers Edition

New York City is packed with amazing culture and inspiring art, but sometimes it’s difficult to break the Morningside-bubble and experience it all first-hand. “Where Art Thou” is a weekly guide to interesting and notable lectures, events, and performances for the literary/musically/theatrically-inclined on campus.

On campus:

  • Monday, January 27 at 6:30 pm, join the Roma Peoples Project and the Harriman Institute for Exotic Gypsy Stereotypes in the Fashion Industry: Rethinking Representations of The Roma People. Viji Reddy, fashion designer and founder of Alamwar Textiles, will discuss how ethical fashion companies can help enhance accurate representations of marginalized groups like the Roma people.
  • On Tuesday, head to the International Affairs Building at 1 pm for a book talk with Lan Yan, author of The House of Yan: A Family at the Heart of a Century in Chinese History. Yan recounts her influential family’s trajectory throughout the tumultuous last century of Chinese history, from WWII-era espionage to recovering from the traumas of the Cultural Revolution.
  • Part of the Woman in Language series, Friday evening’s panel at the Lenfest Center, featuring CU alumnae and questions from MFA Theatre students, will explore the complicated relationship between women and wisdom. Reserve free tickets.

Off Campus:

  • This Tuesday at 6:30 pm, nab your $12 student tickets to Big Fun: Indigenous Art & Performance as Resistance at the Museum of the City of New York. This evening of poetry, music, and art will celebrate radical urban Indigenous resistance, with performances from members of the Indigenous Kinship Collective and others.
  • For more museum goodness, head to the Brooklyn Museum next Saturday, February 1 at 5 pm for First Saturdays: Futura Noir. Celebrate the beginning of Black History Month with the opening of their special exhibition, Jacques-Louis David Meets Kehinde Wiley. Round out the night with live musical performances, meditation, film, and scholarly conversation from members of the African Diaspora.
