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.

A Mexican State of Mind: Migrant Creatives in NYC


Join Dr. Melissa Castillo Planas, author of A Mexican State of Mind: New York City and the New Borderlands of Culture, alongside Mexican MCs Juan Carlos Romero and Audry Funk for a virtual discussion on Mexican creativity in New York City.

This book is based on ten years of fieldwork with members of a vibrant community of Mexican migrants, focusing on youth culture including hip hop, graffiti, muralism, labor activism, arts entrepreneurship, and collective making. The spoken word poets will perform their work, followed by a Q&A. Moderated by Saralinda Lichtblau, HRM Assistant Director, Education.

Today’s Mexican Art Scene: Virtual Studio Visit with Javier Marin


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. To talk about the project, the artist has invited two of the main collaborators in this adventure: Estefania Angeles, Director at the Javier Marin Foundation and Eduardo Mier y Terán, Director at Terreno Baldío Art Gallery.

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.

Set in a time-bending, darkly comic world between heaven and hell,The Last Days of Judas Iscariot imagines if Judas were on trial for his betrayal of Christ and consequently Christianity itself. 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.

Stephen Adly Guirgis’s plays include 
Jesus Hopped the ‘A’ Train (produced at Lehman College in 2017, and winner of best ensemble at the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival), and Our Lady of 121st Street. His play Between Riverside and Crazy won the 2015 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. He is a former co-artistic director of Labyrinth Theater Company. He is a creator and writer of Netflix’s The Get Down.

She has been nominated 3 times for the Buffalo Artie Awards and won for best actress in a musical for her work in FOUR GUYS NAMED JOSE AND UNA MUJER NAMED MARIA.

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


Α
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.

Anti-Racism and Radical Care Across the Curriculum: Activism in the Classroom, Scholarship, and the Institution

Lehman College Writing Across the Curriculum Announces:

Anti-Racism 
and 
Radical Care Across the Curriculum: Activism in the  Classroom, Scholarship, and the Institution

A 2-Part Workshop Series

 

Facilitated by Sophia Hsu, PhD and Sarah Ohmer, PhD

 

APPLICATIONS DUE APRIL 11, 2021

 

 

  • How have the past year’s events affected your teaching, scholarship, and self-care practices?
  •  
  • How does anti-racism, self-care, pleasure activism, and Black joy shape your teaching and/or scholarship?

  • How do you sustain or embark in activist scholarship and writing pedagogy in public higher education?

 

Day 1: April 30, 2021, 10am-1pm

Vulnerability and Compassion in Activist Scholarship and    Writing Pedagogy

How do we create life-giving spaces in the midst of a global pandemic and social injustice? How do vulnerability and compassion help to sustain activist scholarship and writing pedagogy in public higher education? Participants will identify concrete sites of anti-racist action in our day-to-day environments, academic or otherwise, and practice self-reflective writing (in part with the goal of preparing to engage our students in these same practices). We will share practices and projects we are developing in the midst of a global pandemic, 
white supremacy, homophobia, and transphobia, and discuss sustainable implementation. Dedicated quiet writing time will helpparticipants to move forward on current anti-racist projects.

 

Day 2: May 14, 2021, 10am-1pm Putting Anti-Racist Dreams in Practice



What are our dream visions for higher education, scholarship, teaching, and institutional environments? What resources do we need to make our dream work happen? Participants will expand on the ideas and projects they worked on in the previous session and engage in strategic planning to realize future ideas and projects. We will practice setting realistic and measurable goals in alignment with our personal and professional needs. Dedicated 
quiet writing time will help participants to move forward on current anti-racist projects, and to set concrete steps for the summer and the following academic year
.

A small stipend will be offered to all participants.

 

All current Lehman College faculty members are welcome to apply. Applicants must commit to attending all twoworkshops. Due to the limited budget, we will prioritize applications that show demonstrated engagement in and/or specific ideas for developing projects or curricula that reference people of color’s scholarship and activism, focused on topics of anti-racism, intersectionality, social justice, and/or restorative justice.

 

To send an application, use the link in the flyer. 

 

Priority deadline: April 11, 2021
