D20 Journal, produced in conjunction with the exhibition Romancing True Power, is now available online. You can read the journal here.
D20 Journal is published by Associate Dean Nina Khrushcheva with meticulous research and production conducted by GPIA student Yiqing Wang, and expert editorial contribution provided by another GPIA student Beth Pappas. This work–a close collaboration with Ms Wang–deals with aspects of Professor Khrushcheva’s latest study of power, leadership and strongmen, in part supported by the Studley Faculty Research Fund. The journal, the exhibition’s supplement, focuses on trappings, constructs and typology of dicktatorial leadership style and investigates the strong-man rule across the globe and recent historical periods.
GPIA alumna Tracie Ninh, current GPIA students Timothy Kenyon and Timothy Holborn, and many others including generations of students of Professor Khrushcheva’s comparative propaganda-related courses have contributed to the creation of the Romancing True Power exhibition and D20 Journal.
You can also check out copies of the journal at the exhibition site, Arnold and Sheila Aronson Galleries, 66 Fifth Avenue, New York. Romancing True Power: D20 is on view until Thursday February 26, 2015.

This issue explores how the 2014 Ebola outbreak has put the norms, practices, and institutional logics of global health into question, and examines the new assemblages that are being forged in its wake. The contributions focus on various domains of thought and practice that have been implicated in the current outbreak, posing questions such as: What has been learned about the ambitions and the limits of humanitarian medical response? What insights are emerging concerning the contemporary organization of global health security? To what extent have new models of biotechnical innovation been established in the midst of the crisis.

Peeking into the Kremlin: A Research Radio Podcast
Russia makes no shortage of headlines these days: countless on the situation in Ukraine, several more on the continued reign of Vladimir Putin, and a few—here and there—on the justification of sanctions.
Nina Khrushcheva, The New School’s resident expert on the political and cultural climate of Russia, is never too far from the action. The Associate Dean of the Milano School of International Affairs, Management and Urban Policy joined “Research Radio” early this month to discuss why Russia seems stuck in the past when it comes to diplomatic relations, as well as limitations to the country’s development in the 21st Century.
Research Radio is a New School podcast series that explores academic inquiry at the university. Our faculty and students have been researching pressing social and scientific issues, from sustainability to psychology to politics, for nearly a century—and now you can hear about their latest findings.
The New School has announced a bold and comprehensive Climate Action Plan to guide university policies. Developed by students, alumni, faculty, and administrators at our New York City and Paris campuses, the Climate Action Plan draws on our academic strengths and reflective practices, bringing together design, social research, and policy to address the challenges posed by climate change.
As part of this initiative, The New School’s Board of Trustees approved a motion to divest from fossil fuels. The Board’s Investment Committee has also approved a significant investment of the university’s endowment in renewable energy.
Dean of the Milano School, Michelle DePass, was quoted in The New York Times discussing the goals of the program.
