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. RSVP at

Clientelism, Business and Violence in Latin America

Eduardo Moncado, assistant professor, dept. of political science at Rutgers University; fellow, Drugs, Security and Democracy Program, Social Science Research Council / Open Society Foundation

Though violence in Latin America poses formidable challenges for both states and civil society, cooperation between the two is not enough to advance reformist policy responses that tackle the socioeconomic and political drivers of violence.  This research project finds that business is a pivotal but often overlooked actor in the politics of citizen security. Evidence collected through extended field research in some of Latin America's most violent cities in Colombia, Guatemala and Mexico reveals how the strategic interactions between politicians and business help shape the nature and trajectory of policy responses to urban violence.  The analysis highlights the potential benefits for citizen security that can be derived when public and private interests align, and the dangers for democracy and development when they do not.
