CALA FALL 2017 FILM SERIES: FLYING DOWN TO RIO (1933)-Introduction: Patricia Dillon
6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

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.

Aram Barra, Co-founder and Programme Director, Espola; Program Officer of the Joint Drug Policy Reform Project of Mexico United Against Crime and Transform Drug Policy Foundation

The ‘war on drugs’, in most places, is metaphorical. It is rarely used by governments and was recently abandoned as a rhetorical device by the United States. As more public figures call for drug policy reform, two inevitable questions come to mind (a) how did we get to where we are today? and as reform comes about (b) what are the policy trends that different countries are following around the world? This talk will address most common misconceptions and concerns around drug policy reform and cannabis legal regulation. It will also present with key questions as reform moves forward around the world.

FUELING OUR FUTURE - Pipelines and Political Pressure: the Geopolitics of Russian Oil and Gas
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

FUELING OUR FUTURE - Pipelines and Political Pressure: the Geopolitics of Russian Oil and Gas

With seven billion people in the world (nine billion projected by 2050), many of whom live in rapidly developing countries, the need for modern technologies with their attendant energy demands is increasing at an exponential rate. Will it be possible to provide sufficient energy for this generation and the next? How will the energy race change global economies and politics?

Join CGA faculty and experts in the field to discuss the changing landscape of global energy: its potential, challenges, and its impact on how we live today.

Pipelines and Political Pressure: the Geopolitics of Russian Oil and Gas

Tuesday, October 7, 6.30-7.45 pm

In May 2014 Russia and China signed one of the largest gas deals worth more than $40 billion.  In June, the West imposed a series of sanctions against Russia posing challenges to Europe which relies on Russia for over 30% of its natural gas demand.  Russia and Europe are once again entangled in power politics, and Western sanctions pose problems for Russia's oil and gas sectors.  How will tensions shape the relationship between the dominant energy supplier and its greatest energy trading partners? How might this change Russia and Europe's energy outlook? What effect may this have on the global energy sector?

Join Professor Carolyn Kissane and other experts for a discussion on how Russia wields its energy reserves as a tool of diplomacy (and sometimes force) in Europe and elsewhere.

Seating is available on a first come first serve basis until we reach capacity. Preregistration does not guarantee entry.
