CALA FALL 2017 FILM SERIES: THE BLACK CAT (1934)- Introduction: Eric Myers & Howard Mandelbaum
6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Downtown
NYU Event Space

LIGHTS, CAMERA, DECO!: A Cinematic Celebration of Art Deco's International Influence. In conjunction with the Art Deco Society of New York. The Art Deco style arguably originated at the Exposition Internationale des Arts Decoratifs et Industriels in Paris in 1925, where it left  a mark on many designers including Cedric Gibbons, art director for the film Grand Hotel. The Art Deco style would appear in over 1500 films—from Metropolis to The Artist—across the following decades. Art Deco was a truly international style, influencing architecture, fashion, and the design of all objects from perfume bottles to cars. Art Deco moved away from the floral, ornamental patterns of the past to the streamlined, modern shapes of the future. At the same time it embraced and exoticized design motifs from Asia, South America, Egypt, and Africa. Art Deco’s clean and geometric lines complemented the black and white movies of the era and created enduring iconic cinematic images. Please join SPS’s Center for Applied Liberal Arts in collaboration with the Art Deco Society of New York this Fall in celebrating Art Deco’s impact on cinema around the world.

Gender in the Emerging Counter Terrorism Agenda

Presented in collaboration with the CGA’s Gender Working Group (GWG)

Thursday, October 19, 6. 30 - 7.45 pm

Considerable attention has been paid to gender dynamics in both the composition and ideology of radical extremist groups, as well as in the tactics and designated targets of these groups.  Frustrated masculinities are posited to be among the drivers of radicalization and decreased inhibitions to engage in extreme violence. Extremists target women and girls from apostate or opposition groups for organized, even highly bureaucratized, sexual violence and slavery, as well as for online misogyny that builds a culture of fear and inhibition amongst women. Extreme constraints on women’s rights, roles, deportment, visibility, and mobility are part of the visions of social change and ideal states used to motivate fighters.  Yet radical extremists have also been successful in recruiting women to the ranks of fighters and supporters.  


How can women be effectively engaged in the counter-terrorism (CT) agenda? While it is clear that more gender-equal societies may engender fewer extremist movements, engaging women in the CT project may simply designate them as targets for more violence. Attempts to promote gender equality may themselves trigger the violent backlash reactions that become pipelines to extremist actions.  And challenging violent masculinities is a massive developmental project that stretches beyond the urgent and immediate timeline of counter-terrorism. This panel of experts discuss how human rights and gender
