Politics of the City: Plato’s Republic

at Brooklyn Institute for Social Research - Midtown
247 West 37th St 5th Fl, New York, New York 10018

From the ancient world to contemporary debates, the work of Plato is foundational in Western philosophy.

Guilty Pleasures Take the Edge Off Reality

at Think Olio - Ridgewood
56-06 Cooper Ave, New York, New York 11385

Guilty Pleasures Take the Edge Off Reality: Inside the Entertainment-Industrial Complex Eisenhower cautioned us against the military one; if only Orson Welles had warned us about the vastly more insidious assemblage, the Entertainment-Industrial Complex.

190 Underhill Ave Brooklyn, NY 11238, Brooklyn, New York 11238

Imagine you are at a party with the anarchist Emma Goldman, the dancer Isadora Duncan and the women’s health pioneer Margaret Sanger.

The Politics of Infrastructure

Political Vigilance and Letter Writing as Activism

at Think Olio - Ridgewood
56-06 Cooper Ave, New York, New York 11385

Too often relegated to a byline of the Beat Generation, referred to there as one of the “few female writers of the scene to make it,” Di Prima’s work has a passion and fire all its own, an embodied sense of the bio political as well as the anarchic. Epistles are letters written as poems, providing both a tactile sense of intimacy and accessibility,...
