If NYU Skirball is NYU’s biggest classroom, think of this as the syllabus for NYU Skirball Studies 101. Before or after curtain call, come here to find reading lists, media, discussion boards, and suggestions of other shows, books, art, and more.
Follow us down the research rabbit hole: reading lists — context plus points of departure — along with links to media, relevant current events, and discussion questions to take with you after the show, whether you’re talking it out in classrooms or over coffee.
We’ve put together a collection of conversations between NYU Skirball artists and NYU faculty. Some of these are glimpses at ongoing dialogues between long-time collaborators and colleagues; some are first encounters; all are smart, funny, and interesting.
Skirball Talks is our new free, open-to-the-public speaker series, featuring luminaries from the fields of art, science, politics, journalism, and more. Our first season included Ta-Nehisi Coates, Judith Butler, Rev. William Barber, Tony Kushner, Lisa Kron, and April Ryan. Stay tuned for next season’s lineup!
We’ve put together some tangents you can take through the 2017-18 season, to potentially re-organize your thinking: these don’t quite follow the logic of genre, instead finding points of connection in theme or content, to inspire different viewing experiences.
