This class explores contemporary memoirs by writers from diverse social backgrounds.  How do authors translate lived experiences of family life, travel, immigration, work, artistic expression, and politics into compelling literary works?  How do they chronicle the creation of complex identities shaped by race, class, gender identity, geography, and religion?  Analyzing both the achievements and the limitations of the memoir genre, we will discuss how authors map the emotional landscape of private life while addressing broader themes in history, politics, and culture.  Come share your ideas with other passionate readers in a stimulating yet relaxed environment.  Please read Born A Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood by Trevor Noah before our first class meeting.  Other assigned books include: The Skin Above My Knee by Marcia Butler, Rebel Mother: My Childhood Chasing the Revolution by Peter Andreas, and In the Darkroom by Susan Faludi.

Hailed as one of the most ambitious contemporary art projects that the MTA has ever undertaken, the new 2nd Avenue Subway art project was created at a cost of $4.5 million.  Four artists were chosen beginning in 2009, from a pool of more than 300 high-profile applicants, to treat the stations as their very own and make them into individual installations.  Sarah Sze, Chuck Close, Vik Muniz and Jean Shin were selected to transform these new platforms.  Our guided-tour will begin at the 96th Street station and end at the 63rd Street station.
