Global Greenwich Village: Lecture by Robert W. Snyder

September 15, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

Immigrants arriving in New York from Ellis Island

Global Greenwich Village: Turning the World Upside Down
The Inaugural Village Trip Lecture by Professor Robert W. Snyder

Robert Snyder’s lecture will explore three generations of Villagers who were part of this tradition: Puerto Ricans and Cubans of African descent who plotted to overturn the Spanish Empire in the late nineteenth century; activist women of the early twentieth century whose efforts as suffragists, socialists, and settlement house workers set off decades of social reform; and the mid-twentieth century artist Chaim Gross, an immigrant from Austrian Galicia whose drawings and sculptures in wood, stone and bronze crossed international boundaries to present new ways of seeing women, families, acrobats, and Jewish culture. Together, their lives show how New Yorkers and their neighborhoods have been shaped by the world around them – and how Villagers have shaped the world.

This event is free to attend, but we suggest a $10 donation to The Village Trip.
