FOR WISDOM

Women in the Literary Landscape
Tuesday, November 7 | 6:00 p.m. | Bianco Room (NYC)
Women in the US have been pioneering printers, publishers, teachers, editors, journalists, and librarians from colonial times to the present day, blazing trails despite inequities of opportunity. Our literary community is much richer for their diverse contributions. Four distinguished panelists along with a moderator will discuss strategies that they and other literary women have used to overcome barriers. Learn more about Women in the Literary Landscape event.

Against the Will of the People for the Good of Humankind
Monday, November 13 | 5:00 p.m. | Gerber Glass Moot Court Room (LAW)
Should courts use common law doctrines, such as the public trust doctrine and public nuisance, to engage issues of governmental and private obligations relating to greenhouse gas emissions, the need to adapt to climate change, and redress for climate harms? Should states adopt constitutional environmental rights that invite greater judicial involvement in defining environmental rights and responsibilities? Join Katrina Fischer Kuh for her lecture on how the beliefs about the source, scope, and limits of judicial claims to democratic legitimacy inform assessments of the appropriate judicial role in all of these contexts.

Entrepreneurial Passion Diversity and New Venture Performance
Wednesday, November 15 | 12:10 p.m.–1:10 p.m. | 163 William, Room 501 (NYC)
Led by Melissa Cardon, PhD, this lecture will examine how both the level of entrepreneurial passion and the diversity of passion within new venture teams contributes to firm performance. Testing this model using multi-source, multi-wave data collected from 83 early stage new venture teams, these findings advance understanding of how entrepreneurial passion diversity manifests itself, and through which conditions it does so.

 


FOR ART

Pace Performing Arts presents Lysistrata
Friday, October 27, through Sunday, November 5 | 3:00 p.m., 7:00 p.m., and 8:00 p.m. | 3LD Art and Technology Center (NYC)
In a country dominated by men and devastated by its leaders’ obsession with an endless war, Lysistrata unites the women of Greece by persuading them not to have sex with their husbands until a peace treaty can be reached. Updated to the year 2069, this fresh and futuristic take on Aristophanes’ classic comedy about gender and politics is a visually striking reimagination directed by Cosmin Chivu with an original score by John Coyne.

Kate Berlant

Kate Berlant is an LA-based comedian who is quickly emerging as one of the most unique voices in live performance today. Berlant was featured on an episode of Netflix Presents: The Characters.

An Intimate Wild Party
Wednesday, November 8, through Saturday, November 18 | 2:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. | 41 Park Row (NYC)
There’s a timeless quote from The Great Gatsby that stands true today, almost 100 years later: “I like large parties. They’re so intimate. At small parties, there isn’t any privacy.” The Pace School of Performing Arts cast of The Wild Party knows this well, and they’ll be putting on an unforgettable performance of this decadent musical from the Roaring Twenties. It will be filled with light, laughter, and a whole lot of lust. Reserve your tickets for this PPA event today.
