Book discussion ! Nov. 2 – Ester Reiter – A Future Without Hate or Need

Screen Shot 2016-10-31 at 12.18.05 PM.png

Ester Reiter will discuss her new book A Future Without Hate or Need: The Promise of the Jewish Left in Canada (Between the Lines Books, 2016) on Wednesday, November 2 (6:00 PM) at the Tamiment Library. A reception with wine and cheese will follow the lecture. This event is sponsored by the Frederic Ewen Center.

Ester Reiter is a professor emeritus at York University, where she taught in the School of Women’s Studies. She grew up in the secular Jewish left in New York, and is a member of the United Jewish People’s Order in Toronto. Her knowledge of Yiddish made this research possible. A Future Without Hate or Need brings to life the rich and multi-layered lives of a dissident political community.  Activists in this secular Jewish community attempted to weave together their identities as Jews with their internationalist class politics and labour activism.

Copies of A Future Without Hate or Need will be available for purchase.

GIS Day @ NYU on November 16th
Join NYU Libraries for the 5th annual GIS Day @ NYU. The aim of GIS Day is to continue to build and nurture NYU’s GIS community by bringing attention to the GIS resources at NYU, raise awareness of the value of using GIS tools, and showcase the exciting GIS and spatial research being conducted here at NYU.

Decolonial Computing this Friday, Nov. 4th !

“Calls to wrest the history and anthropology of computing, information technology, and digital media away from eurocentric analyses have been raised in the fields of STS and media studies over the last decade. We propose to revisit discussions that take us beyond the dominant developmentalist approaches to technology in the global South, weighing the gains that have been made to incorporate decolonial theory and practice. Our speakers present research focusing on questions of power, authority and legitimacy from both historical perspectives on global technological encounters and the contemporary context of 21st century capitalism.”

The event will be held Friday, November 4th 1:30pm to 5:30pm at 239 Greene Street, Floor 8, New York, NY 10003 .
