Bringing It All Home: Problems and Possibilities Facing NYC’s Family Child Care 9:00 am
Bringing It All Home: Problems and Possibilities Facing NYC’s Family Child Care
May 10 @ 9:00 am – 11:00 am
Child care provided in a private home is the most common child care arrangement for children from low-income families and for babies and toddlers. Yet these programs have historically received little oversight and their quality, on average, has been found wanting. In 2012, with the advent of EarlyLearnNYC, New York City imposed new quality standards on its licensed, subsidized family child care programs. Over three years in, how has this reform played out? What has it taught us about the challenges facing the City’s family child care providers? What works to improve family child care and where should the City go from here? Join The New School on May 10th for a conversation with experts in the field, and the[...]
Shifting Social Contracts: Rainmaking, Happiness, and the Problem of Self-Devouring Growth 6:00 pm
Shifting Social Contracts: Rainmaking, Happiness, and the Problem of Self-Devouring Growth
May 10 @ 6:00 pm – May 10 @ 8:00 pm
This talk examines technologies of public health and the aesthetics of happiness in Botswana, where there is an ongoing crisis of water. Taking rainmaking in 19th and early 20th century as the central example and charting its demise as a political technology amid the rise of hydraulics, this talk considers how a metaphysical politics of collective well-being has gradually been overtaken by a materialist politics of consumption. The talk explores how the hermeneutics of rainmaking offer a way to think about the predicament of the developmentalist state. This event is open to the general public. No registration is required. Speaker: Julie Livingston, Professor of History, Social and Cultural Analysis, New York University Chair: Manjari Mahajan, Assistant Professor, GPIA, The New[...]

Hollywood in The New Cold War- The Perpetual Perpetrator: Contemporary Contexts 6:00 pm
Hollywood in The New Cold War- The Perpetual Perpetrator: Contemporary Contexts
May 11 @ 6:00 pm – May 11 @ 8:00 pm
How does the entertainment industry continuously permeate the human mind and amplify the list of political adversaries, be it in America, Russia or elsewhere in the world? How does film manipulate the public national opinion? It has been twenty-five years since the Soviet Union dissolved and the Cold War ended, yet Russia remains a loyal enemy. Although America and Russia have been allies for the past two decades, these countries always force one another into formulaic cultural imaginations, and Hollywood is by no means innocent. Even before Putin took over Crimea, more than 60 percent of Americans already regarded Russia as a bad guy on the world stage. Recent films such as the historical drama Bridge of Spies (2015), directed[...]

Women’s Pay Equity: Getting Even 9:00 am
Women’s Pay Equity: Getting Even
May 13 @ 9:00 am – 11:00 am
It is well known that women in the United States are paid, on average, 77 cents for every dollar that a man earns. Sometimes, this is a result of women getting paid less for the same work. In other cases, women are under-represented in higher-earning positions or take different career paths due to family responsibilities. The wage gap varies among women and is larger for women of color and women in particular sectors and occupations. On Friday, May 13, The New School’s Center for New York City Affairs hosts a public event to explore this gap between men’s and women’s wages. As part of the panel discussion for the event, key actors, including economists, government representatives, activists, and corporate leaders[...]
