  • Philosemitism and Its Discontents: Daniel Deronda, Part I
    Wednesday, July 27, 2016 2:00 pm
    Central Library, Info Commons Lab

    Philosemitism--the love of Jewish culture--has received much less attention than its destructive sibling, antisemitism. The latter generally accepts the status quo, but the former often takes the shape of discovery, especially in literature. We will wrap up the four-part series by reading George Eliot's final novel, Daniel Deronda (1876). Specifically, we will focus on the "English" portion of the novel.

    The novel follows the intertwining lives of the beautiful but spoiled and selfish Gwendolene Harleth and the selfless yet alienated Daniel Deronda, as they search for personal and vocational fulfilment and sympathetic relationship. Set largely in the degenerate English aristocratic society of the 1860s, Daniel Deronda charts their search for meaningful lives against a background of imperialism, the oppression of women, and racial and religious prejudice. Gwendolen's attempts to escape a sadistic relationship and atone for past actions catalyse her friendship with Deronda, while his search for origins leads him, via Judaism, to a quest for moral growth. Eliot's radical dual narrative constantly challenges all solutions and ensures that the novel is as controversial now, as when it first appeared.

    Book Discussion Leader Harold Augenbraum is an American writer, editor, and translator. He is the former Executive Director of the National Book Foundation and former Vice Chair of the New York Council for the Humanities. For fifteen years Augenbraum was Director of The Mercantile Library of New York (now the Center for Fiction), where he established the Center for World Literature, the New York Festival of Mystery, the Clifton Fadiman Medal, and the Proust Society of America.

  • Neighborhood Change in South Brooklyn - Research Findings
    Wednesday, July 27, 2016 7:00 pm
    Central Library, Info Commons Lab

    Neighborhoods are more than just tangible, physical environments in which people live -- they mirror and embody the essence of those who inhabit them. Resident’s classes, religious beliefs, cultures, political stances and more all culminate to make a neighborhood what it is. These factors determine its uniqueness, characteristics & sustainability. The City of New York is currently made up of over 400 neighborhoods; each one as diverse and complex as the next Divided into boroughs and listed in order of geographic size they are as follows: Queens, Brooklyn, Staten Island, The Bronx and Manhattan.

    Since the passage of the 1965 Immigration Act, New York, and especially Brooklyn, has seen a massive influx of immigrants from Latin America, Africa  and Asia, who, coupled with gentrification, have been actively reshaping the neighborhoods of New York. Join us as we take a close look at three neighborhood of Brooklyn,  Bensonhurst, Sunset Park, and Dyker Heights,  through photography and oral histories from, former and current residents, and find out what these neighborhoods look like today, a half a century after the legislature that made it possible.

    These research findings will be presented by participants of the Mellon Research Project, a college-wide, interdisciplinary project at Brooklyn College.
