The Ford Foundation has awarded the Museum of the City of New York a $250,000 grant for an exhibition, "Standing Tall: New York's Century of Affordable Housing," to be curated by Nicholas Dagen Bloom, Ph.D., associate professor of social sciences and director of the core curriculum at NYIT. The grant will support the public exhibition, a companion book, and a program series to acquaint more than 125,000 visitors with the extent and complexity of the many efforts to provide affordable housing in New York City. The exhibition will be on view from July through December 2014.
Bloom is an expert on urban development and a sought-after media commentator on New York history. His book, Public Housing That Worked: New York in the Twentieth Century, is considered a comprehensive resource on the topic. He has provided commentary for the popular four-part news segment, "Housing Generations," in December 2012 on New York Public Radio, and was interviewed for a show on public housing for Brian Lehrer.TV, which aired on CUNY TV in November 2012.

Kevin LaGrandeur, Ph.D., associate professor of English and director of NYIT technical writing programs, Old Westbury campus, has written the book, Androids and Intelligent Networks in Early Modern Literature and Culture: Artificial Slaves, published by Routledge Press. This scholarly monograph explores the creation and use of artificially made humanoid servants and servant networks by fictional and nonfictional scientists before the 17th century. It analyzes how representations of artificial servants in pre-empirical literature and culture reflect the promises and dangers of technological self-enhancement, as understood at the time, and how those reflections might resonate with today's technological developments.

In 2009, when Associate Professor Beverly J. Butcher, Ph.D., was employed at a university in northern Florida, she taught courses on multicultural literature and writing as well as the work of female authors in China. It was the latter courses on the writings of Nobel Prize winner Pearl Buck's The Exile and Fighting Angel and Anchee Min's Red Azalea and Empress Orchid that Butcher says invoked her longing to return to China, where she had lived four years previously, in Taiwan and Shanghai. Now, she directs the NYIT Center for Humanities and Culture at NUPT and chairs the English department at NYIT's Nanjing campus. Read more.
