2:00 PM - 3:00 PM Reading with Amanda Gulla: Inquiry-Based Learning Through the Creative Arts for Teachers and Teacher Educators

This book is a theoretical and practical guide to implementing an inquiry-based approach to teaching which centers creative responses to works of art in curriculum. Guided by Maxine Greene’s philosophy of Aesthetic Education, the authors discuss the social justice implications of marginalized students having access to the arts and opportunities to find their voices through creative expression. They aim to demystify the process of inquiry-based learning through the arts for teachers and teacher educators by offering examples of lessons taught in high school classrooms and graduate level teaching methods courses. Examples of student writing and art work show how creative interactions with the arts can help learners of all ages deepen their skills as readers, writers, and thinkers.

Amanda Gulla is Associate Professor and Coordinator of the Graduate Program in English Education at Lehman College.

2:00 PM - 3:30 PM Erie County Smile (Screening and Discussion)
Multimedia artist Van Tran Nguyen will present and discuss her new satirical short film, "Erie County Smile," followed by a short Q & A.

Please RSVP to Professor Monica Duncan at monica.duncan@lehman.cuny.edu to obtain Zoom link.


Erie County Smile (2021) Erie County Smile is a parody of "Paris By Night" (PBN), a popular Vietnamese-language variety show. PBN gained notoriety in the Vietnamese diasporic community by the mid-1990s and is still in production today. Music from the live shows were recorded and commonly played at Vietnamese-owned businesses all over the world. In the waiting area of my family's nail salon, we always had PBN in the VHS player. This film lives at the intersection of nostalgia, diaspora and labor. Erie County Smile is dedicated to children of immigrants, who grew up behind doors labeled "EMPLOYEES ONLY". Erie County Smile is a satirical short film by Van Tran Nguyen, in collaboration with Alex Derwick, Ako Shergazy, Bryan Czerniawski and Mengtai Zhang.

3:30 PM - 5:00 PM Yours for Justice: The Continued Relevance Of Ida B. Wells' Diagnosis Of Domestic Racial Terror


Yours for Justice: The Continued Relevance of Ida B. Wells' Diagnosis of Domestic Racial Terror  

Professor Jane Anna Gordon of the University of Connecticut Department Of Political Science 

Everyone who has heard of Ida B. Wells is familiar with her as an anti-lynching crusader. What was crucial about her work was that it framed the rise of lynching in the early 20th century as entirely a function of hostility to the end of slavery and the growth of the project of black freedom. Professor Jane Anna Gordon will speak about Wells’ work and how her framing of anti-black violence as domestic terror forces us to consider why such actions are, to this day, not considered and treated as treasonous.


Presented by The Department of Africana Studies & The Women’s And Gender Studies Program

6:00 PM - 8:30 PM Ubuntu Pedagogy in Pandemic Times: Teaching Africana Women's Responses

There has been abundant reporting on the coronavirus pandemic’s disproportionate impact on Black and Brown people and communities with preexisting conditions of economic, educational, housing and health precarities. In the face of the virus’s existential threat, Black women and women of color in Africa and the African Diaspora have mobilized, organized, networked, and taken collective action to fight the pandemic, locally and transnationally. Led by Lehman College professors and students, this multimedia, interactive presentation explores those women’s visions, strategies, and best practices through the prism of the African indigenous worldview of Ubuntu (oo-boon-too), the very essence of being human and inextricably connected to others.

7:00 PM Ghosts in Grey and Blue: a meditation of the legacy of the American Civil War

WORLD PREMIERE


The Department of Music, Multimedia, Theatre, and Dance is proud to present the first live recording of "Ghosts in Grey and Blue," a new brass trio by prominent African American composer, Dr. Adolphus Hailstork. This major new addition to the canon is meant by the composer to be paired with his choral setting of Walt Whitman's "When Lilacs Last in Dooryard Bloomed." In the absence of a chorus for this premiere, the poem is presented alongside Civil War imagery, to inform the music. The improvisatory nature of certain sections of this work means that it will never be performed the same way again. The video as a whole serves as a solemn reminder of the yet unresolved legacy of the Civil War.

Join us for the third in our series with contemporary Mexican artists who are making their mark on the international scene. Javier Marin (b. 1962) is one of the most influential and controversial artists working in Mexico today, with a wide body of work developed throughout 35 years, consistently recognized by international art institutions. During this rare virtual visit to his studio in Mexico City, he will talk about his working process, his sculptures and monumental works for public spaces, with emphasis on his newest project, the Fábrica de San Pedro Cultural Center in Uruapan, in the State of Michoacan.

This groundbreaking project is a collaboration between architects, restorers, curators, historians, designers, and artists, organized by the Javier Marin Foundation. This nineteenth-century textile factory brings together skilled artisans and contemporary artists to preserve and strengthen their unique cultural identity and community.

2:30 PM - 4:00 PM Deep-dive to the fundamental causes and social determinants of health disparities: A call for interdisciplinary collaboration


CUNY Institute for Health Equity (CIHE)
Inaugural Speaker’s Series on:
Health Equity and Health Disparities

Nancy Breen, PhD, received her PhD in Economics from the Graduate Faculty of the New School for Social Research in New York City in 1988. Her undergraduate degrees are in Political Science and French. Dr. Breen served as health economist at the National Institutes of Health: from 1991 to 2015 at the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and from 2015 to 2019 at the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD). She co-edited the NIMHD-sponsored AJPH Supplement (January 2019) “New Perspectives to Advance Minority Health and Health Disparities Research”. Dr. Breen’s more than 100 peer-reviewed articles reflect her desire to improve the evidence base for understanding the social determinants underlying health disparities. Her published work has increasingly focused on how structures and policies lead to health disparities. Her objective is to inspire broad-based interventions leading to social justice and economic sustainability.

We begin with two important examples of public health policy, then survey the concepts of Fundamental Causes and Social Determinants of Health (SDoH). After comparing how Fundamental Causes --structural racism and poverty—affect the health of racial/ethnic populations in the US, we will explore how some key SDoH --income, wealth, and housing stability—have evolved differentially for these same racial/ethnic populations over time. A deeper understanding of upstream determinants requires investigating economic inequality as a historical phenomenon. Today’s macroeconomy promotes financial inequality, consumer debt, and poor health in multiple ways. Finally, we return to public health policy by considering some interventions designed to address racial/ethnic and class inequalities in income, wealth and housing and end by probing how these policies might be refined using Community Based Participatory Research to become even more effective.

1:00 PM - 2:00 PM Reading with Julie Maybee: Making and Unmaking Disability

In this brave new theoretical approach to human physicality, Julie E. Maybee traces societal constructions of disability and impairment through Western history along three dimensions of embodiment: the personal body, the interpersonal body, and the institutional body. Each dimension has played a part in defining people as disabled and impaired in terms of employment, healthcare, education, and social and political roles.

Because impairment and disability have been constructed along all three of these bodies, unmaking disability and making the future accessible will require restructuring Western institutions, including capitalism, changing how social roles are assigned, and transforming our deepest beliefs about impairment and disability to reconstruct people as capable. Ultimately, Maybee suggests, unmaking disability will require remaking our world.

Julie Maybee is Chair of the Philosophy Department, Professor of Philosophy, and the Director of the Interdisciplinary Disabilities Studies Program at Lehman College.

Featuring a cast of fictional and historically-based characters across several centuries including Mother Teresa, Sigmund Freud, Pontius Pilate, Satan, and Jesus, Guirgis’ play confronts contemporary issues of class, race, and gender, and how Western Eurocentric culture has appropriated and distorted the legacy and meaning of these iconic figures, their actions, and words.

pril 28, 2021
: Wendell «ΜΧ» Cooper, Assistant Professor, Department of Music, Multimedia, Theatre and Dance

 

 Ecstatic Disobedience: Gender Embodiment in Hip Hop, House, and Vogue

 

Mx. Oops aka Wendell Cooper will examine how Breakin’, House Dance, and Vogue Femme simultaneously critique gender expression norms and expand beyond them. Each dance form is based on a series of foundational movement elements, each borrowing from movement traditions with gendered histories — Salsa, Jazz, Capoeira, and more. By looking at how these Urban Dance forms remix fixed notions of masculinity and femininity, we will unpack their methodology of liberation.
