The New School

50 Years Later: Martin Luther King Jr. Lives on at The New School

851 views 1 week ago
On February 6, 1964, Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. took the stage at The New School (http://www.newschool.edu). His appearance marked the start of the American Race Crisis Lecture Series (http://goo.gl/aFZUeV), a for-credit lecture series bringing 16 luminaries of the American Civil Rights Movement together to discuss issues of social justice, integration, and equal access to education. But in time, the talks were forgotten, and the reel-to-reel recordings, press materials, and behind-the-scenes documents sat hidden in the inventories of The New School's archives. Fifty years later, in February 2014, The New School partnered with the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture (http://www.nypl.org/locatio...) to present Voices of Crisis, a month-long exhibition and series public programs to commemorate the original lecture series and reflect on the impact of the civil rights movement then and now.

Civic Engagement Play

Eugene Lang College is committed to civic engagement and social justice in a liberal arts framework. Civic engagement is the practice of reciprocal and self-reflexive intervention that brings communities into contact with each other and creates spaces where the relationship between power, knowledge, and social action can be studied. Civic engagement can include a wide continuum of interventions, ranging from community service to social issues activism to critical pedagogies. Civic engagement is integral to a liberal arts education, but a liberal arts education is integral to fostering forms of civic engagement that are attentive and responsive to shifting social and political conditions.
At Lang social justice is considered the ethical core of liberal arts education, so learning through civic engagement is much more than volunteer work. It integrates purposeful public service with academic grounding, instruction, and reflection.

The New School for Public Engagement Play

Two renowned divisions have come together to form The New School for Public Engagement -- The New School for General Studies and Milano The New School for Management and Urban Policy. The newly integrated and newly named division emphasizes the core values of democratic citizenship, social action, and cultural engagement that inspired The New School's founding 92 years ago.

The New School for Public Engagement brings together professional, social, and cultural programs that stress learning in action. We connect theory to real-world practice, training students to address civic life, create new forms of culture, and respond to contemporary urban, social, and global needs.

The New School for Public Engagement consists of five schools:

- Milano School of International Affairs, Management and Urban Policy
- School of Languages

- School of Undergraduate Studies
- School of Writing

Social Research Play

Committed to interdisciplinary thinking and worldly engagement, this is a graduate school where intellectuals produce scholarship that advances the most humanistic aims of social science.

Center for Public Scholarship Play

The Center for Public Scholarship seeks to promote free inquiry and public discussion, bringing the best scholarship in and outside the academy to bear on the critical and contested issues of our times. The Social Research conference series, initiated in 1988 by Arien Mack, aims to enhance public understanding and influence ongoing debates about current social and political issues and to amplify the public voice of the Social Research journal.

Because we present our themes in their broad historical and cultural contexts, speakers at these conferences come from a wide range of disciplines with many different perspectives and kinds of expertise: historians, social scientists, natural scientists, and art historians routinely participate alongside legal theorists, policy makers, and journalists.

Public scholarship includes not only the media, the academy, and political leaders, but all who understand the urgency of an issue and wish to learn more—whether to influence public policy, educate others, or simply become more informed citizens. Therefore, Social Research conferences offer a unique atmosphere in which the public is invited to participate in the dialogue on critical and contested issues. The result is a vibrant discussion that reaches beyond the walls of the university.
