Revolting New York: How Riots, Uprisings, Revolts, and Revolutions Shape a City.  Don Mitchell, Distinguished Professor, Geography will lay out the background and goals of a large project, Revolting New York, which seeks to tell the story of the role 350 years of riots, uprising, revolts, and revolutions have played in shaping the historical and social geography of the city.  Along the way it will raise questions about the productive role of violence -- organized and unorganized, rooted in class and race differences -- in making, unmaking, and remaking the urban landscape.  Riots and uprisings, Dr. Mitchell will suggest, are like lightning flashes that illuminate the social structure of a city; but like a violent storm, they necessarily change that social structure too.

We’re Turning 100!

To mark our centennial in the fall of 2024, the Maxwell School will hold special events and engagement opportunities to celebrate the many ways—across disciplines and borders—our community ever strives to, as the Oath says, “transmit this city not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”

Throughout the year leading up to the centennial, engagement opportunities will be held for our diverse, highly accomplished community that now boasts more than 38,500 alumni across the globe.
