Please join The New School community on October 25th at 7:30PM at The Auditorium, Alvin Johnson/J.M. Kaplan Hall, 66 West 12th Street, for a performance of The Flexible Orchestra’s “AnnCela Express” for twelve cellos and wind instruments, composed by Ann’s partner Daniel Goode and conducted by Tara Simoncic. The performance is a celebration in music of Ann Snitow, professor emerita of Literature and Gender Studies. A gathering and reception will follow in Wollman Hall, 5th Floor of 65 West 11th Street, where those who would like to do so are invited to share their remembrances of Ann and of her work for justice and pleasure in the U.S. and all over the world. We look forward to gathering together to honor Ann’s extraordinary contributions to feminist thought, action and The New School, including Ann’s three decades of teaching at Eugene Lang College, twenty-five years of teaching in the “Democracy and Diversity” seminar of the Transregional Center for Democratic Studies, and work over the past ten years to establish and sustain the university’s Gender Studies Program.
