NYU’s first ever student-led Humanities Ambassadors Club will host a career panel talk featuring an all-star line up of professionals from a variety of careers. Presenters will talk briefly about how their background in the Humanities has helped them be successful in their career. Following the panel talk, students will have an opportunity to form small groups and ask questions of speakers in a more intimate roundtable setting.

Join us for a gallery talk with artist James Nelson, followed by a roundtable discussion on archives with Diana Taylor, Director of the Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics, and the 2013-2014 Fellows of The Humanities Initiative.
Visit the multi-media exhibition by James Nelson, Two Ton Hammer, before and after the roundtable. About the exhibition: After the sudden passing of his friend, Tomcat Mahoney, in 2008, Nelson began digitizing Mahoney’s radio show cassette tapes in preparation for their donation to The Rodgers and Hammerstein Archives of Recorded Sound at Lincoln Center. This exhibit, hosted by the Humanities Initiative, features Nelson’s drawings influenced by the shock of loss and the intimacy of voice.
The Hemispheric Institute will display selected pieces of Performing the Archive, an exhibit that examines how primary materials from live performance—artifacts, books, and moving images—enact moments of liveness post-performance.
