CALA Documentary Flim Screening of A WAY OUT
6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Made by CALA faculty member Gladys Bensimon,  A Way Out is a feature documentary that premiered at the NJ International Film Festival and is about poverty and how we in America may overcome it. The film analyzes the factors of success through the stories of three minority men from Newark, New Jersey. These men successfully beat the odds...not by luck, but rather by deliberate support and opportunities that otherwise would have left them poor, incarcerated, or even dead.

In addition to the illustrative and compelling stories, the documentary features the historic, economic and academic analysis of poverty, and the history of racism and inequality in the United States, featuring various social, political, and economic experts. This documentary was passionately endorsed by Senator Cory Booker in June 2017. RSVP at http://tinyurl.com/CALAWAYOUT

CALA FALL 2017 Film Series: SWING TIME (1936) Introduction: Eric Myers & Howard Mandelbaum
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.

From Trolling to Trafficking: Cyber-sexism and Social Media
6:30 PM - 7:45 PM

Downtown

From Trolling to Trafficking: Cyber-sexism and Social Media

Co-sponsored by the MSGA Transnational Security Committee and the MSGA Gender Working Group

Thursday, March 9, 6.30 – 7.45 pm

The online space has emerged as one in which sexism and gender-based violence is openly expressed.  This can take the form of “revenge porn” and threats of violence and rape directed to women online, to the use of the dark web for human trafficking networks. Less obvious but insidious are gender biases embedded in algorithms for filtering images or posts – these filters have been shown to perpetuate negative messages about women or false news about female public figures. Law enforcement has lagged in understanding and combating the role of digital media in enabling gender-based violence and crime. Social media platforms have dragged their feet in addressing embedded gender biases in their news and other filters. How has the online space contributed to sexism and violence against women and how can law enforcement agencies and other communities most effectively respond to these threats? How have women active in social media fought back? Join CGA faculty with other experts to discuss the intersections of gender and power online.
