Monday, April 14th, 2014 at 11:00am-1:30pm
NYU Wagner Rice Conference Room, 295 Lafayette Street, 10012 New York NY

The mosaic of international and domestic trading schemes related to the carbon market illustrates the potential of market-based approaches to climate change. However, debate continues in the United States, Europe, and throughout the world about whether and to what extent the forces of the marketplace can be harnessed in the interest of environmental protection. A panel of experts will explore the development of environmental markets, and examine a number of market-based and economy-wide options for mitigating greenhouse gas emissions, including carbon taxes, cap and trade programs, voluntary carbon markets, and the use of renewable energy innovations. Following the discussion, there will be the opportunity to network and exchange ideas over a light lunch and coffee. Speakers: Chris Gadomski, Lead Nuclear Analyst at Bloomberg New Energy Finance Nathaniel Keohane, Vice President, Environmental Development Fund Tessa Lee, Research Associate, Carbon War Room Moderator: John Gershman

Radical Archives
April 11-12, 2014
Cantor Film Center36 E 8th StNew YorkNY
Curated by Mariam Ghani and Chitra Ganesh, the 2013-2014 A/P/A Institute at NYU Artists-in-Residence. A two-day conference organized around the notion of archiving as a radical practice, by which we mean: archives of radical politics and practices; archives that are radical in form or function; moments or contexts in which archiving in itself becomes a radical act; and considerations of how archives can be active in the present, as well as documents of the past and scripts for the future.The conference is organized around four threads of radical archival practice: Archive and Affect, or the embodied archive; Archiving Around Absence, or reading for the shadows; Archives and Ethics, or stealing from and for archives; and Archive as Constellation, or archive as method, medium, and interface.

By presenting games, scholarship and hands-on workshops engaged with issues of diversity and inclusion we seek to build new connections and foster a unique dialogue between artistic, academic and commercial practice. We welcome folks from all corners of the games community invested in games as creative, critical tools and committed to seeing games reflect the complexity, depth and diversity of all involved.
