New York Museum Selects NYIT Professor to Curate 2014 Exhibit

Nicholas Bloom

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’s Book Published

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.

New Book of Poems from Susana Case

Salem in Séance, Poems by Susana H. Case

In the late 1600s, in Salem, Mass., unruly young girls were diagnosed medically as victims of witchcraft. Eventually, more than 200 people were accused of practicing witchcraft. Twenty were executed—nineteen by hanging, one by crushing. Salem in Seance by Susana H. Case is a narrative exploration of these shocking events, depicting this tumultuous time with powerful detail.

Praise for Salem in Séance

“In Salem in Séance, an incendiary collection of poems about accused witches, Susana H. Case recreates a world of sickening contingencies. With style and compassion, she evokes the stories of the mostly women and girls who were victims in the Salem Witch Trials, when ‘those without powerful friends’ were sometimes sentenced to be hanged, and one was even crushed. In these radiant poems, Case reminds what happened when ‘Satan was present and active,’ when a woman was “carried like a gust great distances through the air,” and when a woman ‘signed her name in blood.’”—Margo Taft Stever

underneath my white bonnet,

of appearance, I know

begging,

curses I admit

[You make excuses for them!]

since the loss of inheritance

know the ruin upon me

makes my eyes look hollowed out …

About Susana H. Case

Susana H. Case, professor, Behavioral Sciences, NYIT's College of Arts & Sciences, Manhattan Campus is the author of several previous books and chapbooks, most recently Manual of Practical Sexual Advice  (Kattywompus Press, 2012). She lives in New York.

Abstract of Kevin LaGrandeur’s Article

The article, “Robots, Moving Statues, and Automata in Ancient Tales and History”, was published in Critical Insights: Technology & Humanity, Ed. Carol Colatrella, Salem Press, 2012.  Pp. 99-111.

Here’s an abstract of the article:

What is really significant when we look at technology in the ancient world is that technology is not limited to Classical mythology, but in the literature of other cultures as well. These other accounts include quasi-mythological tales like The Iliad, tales from ancient cultures in India and China, and non-fictional accounts of real instances of technological innovation by ancient inventors. The devices made by ancient Greek engineers—such as the Antikythera mechanism, or the devices of Ctsebius and Hero of Alexandria, and Philon of Byzantium—are especially notable because they reflect, and are reflected by, the various fictional accounts. Chief in importance among technological innovations that appear in all three realms (stories, myths, and reality) are automata, especially humanoid automata. Their main significance is their ability to enhance and project the power and status of their makers or owners, who were sometimes the same individuals.

Meet Beverly J. Butcher, Ph.D.

Beverly Butcher

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.

Kevin LaGrandeur Joins International Technology Think Tank

The Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies is a nonprofit, international think tank founded in 2004 which includes members from Italy, Sweden, Canada, Germany, and the United States (among other places). By promoting and publicizing the work of international thinkers who examine the social implications of scientific and technological progress, they seek to contribute to the understanding of the impact of emerging technologies on individuals and societies, locally and globally. They also aim to help produce benefits and reduce the risks of technological advancement.  This invitation was, in part, prompted by Dr. LaGrandeur's recent presentations in Europe.
