History of the New York Institute for the Humanities

In the summer of 1976, New York University Professor of Sociology Richard Sennett chaired a conference on the Humanities and Social Thought in Bellagio, Italy. Sennett and other participants developed the idea for a New York-based institute to foster intellectual discourse and cross-disciplinary communication while at the conference. In December 1976 New York University and Richard Sennett's Center for Humanistic Studies co-sponsored the conference "The Future of the Intellectual Community in New York", which was co-organized by Sennett, New York University President John Sawhill, and New York University Professor Ronald Florence (then Director of the New York Council for the Humanities). Based on the success of the conference, Richard Sennett and President Sawhill co-hosted a series of informal dinners for cultural, labor, and business leaders, writers, and artists. Participants discussed how to continue to redefine and strengthen intellectual life in New York City. The ideas that arose from the dinners provided the structure for the New York Institute for the Humanities. Correspondence about these dinners, and the first proposals for a New York Institute for the Humanities, can be found in the Administrative Papers of President John Crittenden Sawhill (RG 3.0.8), Box 44.

In 1977 the New York Institute for the Humanities was established as a permanent activity of New York University by an act of the university's Board of Trustees. An advisory board was formed to help with the Institute's early development, while Sennett, New York Times editor Caroline Rand Herron, and New York University Humanities Professor Thomas Bender worked with administrative assistant Toni Greenberg on the Institute's day-to-day operations. Rand Herron acted as a publications and communications consultant, creating a series of Institute lunches and Public Forums. Bender also contributed considerable time and organized the Institute's first Gallatin Lectures. In 1978, the Institute received significant funding from the Exxon Education Foundation and the National Endowment for the Humanities, enabling expansion of its Fellowship and Lecture activities. In 1980 the Institute was independently incorporated and formed its own Board of Trustees; however, all daily administrative activities were handled by New York University, with the Institute's Board serving primarily in an advisory role.

From the time of the Institute's inception, the Fellowship program was the core of the New York Institute for the Humanities, embodying its mission to support the work of individual scholars and intellectuals in an environment which encouraged interaction. About half of the early fellows were academics from New York-area universities, while the rest were artists, writers, journalists, and public officials. In the early years, fellows generally met once or twice a month for informal seminars. As the Institute grew, Sennett worked with Aryeh Neier and Thomas Bender to create a more defined program in which Fellows--elected to either one-year or five-year fellowships--formed interdisciplinary seminars around topics of interest and participated in weekly Fellows Lunches. Most Fellows were unpaid, although some received office space or clerical support. Fellows were responsible for the Institute's internal operations, which were overseen by the Director and three committees: an Executive Committee, a Program Committee, and a Fellowship Selection Committee.

The Program Committee was particularly active during the Institute's first five years. The Institute hosted public lecture series and conferences, most notably the James Lecture Series and the Gallatin Lecture Series. In a concerted move to counter American isolationist tendencies at the time, the James Lectures brought primarily European intellectuals to the Institute. The Gallatin Lecture Series was created shortly thereafter to provide a diverse public audience for American humanists. The period of 1979-1983 was especially active, bringing such literary and intellectual figures as Michel Foucault, Italo Calvino, Czeslow Milosz, Jorge Luis Borges and Roland Barthes to speak publicly and to participate in seminars. In 1981 the Institute launched a Humanities Exchange Program for writers exiled from Latin American and Eastern European regimes. Many of the Institute's early lectures were published by Columbia University Press in "Humanities in Review" (1982), edited by David Rieff.

The Institute is still in operation, currently comprising approximately 150 Fellows, and typically holds luncheon-lectures for Institute Fellows every Friday of the academic year. In addition the NYIH organizes a variety of seminars, conferences, discussions, readings and performances that are free and open to the public.

Only a partial list of Directors of the Institute has been confirmed:

1977-78 - Richard Sennett
1978-79 - Richard Sennett and Thomas Bender
1979-80 - Loren Baritz
1980-81 - Aryeh Neier
1981-82 - Edmund White
1982-83 - Edmund White
1983-84 - Edmund White and Richard Sennett
1984-85 - Jerome Bruner
1986-87 - William R. Taylor and A. Richard Turner
1987-88 - A. Richard Turner

As founder of the Institute, Richard Sennett's papers form a large part of this collection. Sennett, an interdisciplinary scholar, novelist, and social critic, is currently Professor of History and Sociology at New York University, and Professor of Sociology and Chair of the Cities Programme at the London School of Economics. Born in Chicago in 1943, Sennett was trained as a cellist at the Julliard School of Music, and later studied sociology at Harvard University. After brief appointments at Yale and Brandeis Universities, he came to New York University in 1972, where he has spent the majority of his career. Sennett has written over a dozen books on subjects ranging from urbanism to modern capitalism, including The Hidden Injuries of Class (1972),  The Fall of Public Man (1976), and  Authority, as well as the novel  The Frog Who Dared to Croak (1982).

Scope and Content Note

The Records of the New York Institute for the Humanities collection offers unique access for researchers interested in the history of intellectual life and the humanities in the period between 1975 and 1985. While the Institute's mission focused on intellectual activity in New York City, it also brought noted intellectuals to New York from Latin America and Europe, including those supported by the Exiled Writers program.

In addition to materials relating to the operation and activities of the Institute, the collection contains a large number of documents generated by Professor Richard Sennett, founder and former Director of the Institute.

Series I: Director's Files: This series consists of records generated by the Director's Office and its staff. These records are related to both the administration of the Institute as well as non-Institute matters associated with the professional career of the Director. Richard Sennett generated the majority of the documents in this series; many of these relate to his career as an academic and a writer outside of his capacity as Director, such as correspondence with publishers and conference organizers.

Series I is broken up into four Subseries:

A. Administrative
B. Individuals
C. Institutions
D. Subject Files

Series II: Seminars, Lectures and Events: This series consists of records generated in the course of organizing and administering internal and public events; these materials include correspondence, reading lists, seminar minutes, posters, and transcripts of talks. Institute seminar leaders and members created many of the documents in this series. Materials for each seminar can range from one page of information, such as a list of attendees, to multiple folders of documents, sometimes including summary notes from each session and reading packets. Materials relating to Institute events, such as public lectures, include correspondence, transcripts of lectures and discussions, guest lists, and advertising flyers.

Significant seminars include Thomas Bender and William Taylor's "Culture of Cities", Richard Sennett and Michel Foucault's "Sexuality and Solitude", and the seminar "Sexuality, Gender and Consumer Culture". The year-long Times Square Conferences which evolved into the book "Inventing Times Square" (1991) are also well-documented.

A List of all seminars and lectures held at the Institute between its founding and 1987 can be found in the Institute's Ten Year Report (Series I.A: Box 3 Folder 13).

The last box in this series consists of student recommendation files created by Richard Sennett. Access to these student records are limited by FERPA, and the materials are restricted.

Series III: Audio Recordings: Not all audio recordings of Institute events have been digitized for research use. Please contact the University Archives with questions about materials available digitally. Additionally, some of the recordings were previously transcribed, and those transcriptions are contained in Series II.

The audio recordings are divided into three subseries:

A: Cassette Tapes
B: 1/4 Inch Reels

C: Mini Disks

Arrangement

Folders are generally arranged alphabetically by folder title and then in reverse chronology within each folder. Materials received in later accessions however, were added to the end of the relevant series, rather than inserted alphabetically. Audio tapes are generally arranged chronologically, although tapes received in later accessions are not in chronological order.

The records are grouped into 3 series:

  1. Director's Files
  2. Seminars, Lectures, and Events
  3. Audio Recordings

Scope and Contents

Introduced by Lawrence Weschler, this is a recording of a conversation between Ryszard Kapuscinski and Oliver Sacks that took place at Hemmerdinger Hall on September 18, 2002; an event entitled Rhapsodic Non-Fiction. Weschler explains the title by pointing out a common thread in the seemingly very different authors' works. Kapuscinski's The Emporer, on the surface was about an an anti-communist, Ethiopian regime being toppled, but was allegorical to the situation in Poland in the late 1970s. Oliver Sacks' Awakenings was about his patients with "locked in" syndrome, but could be compared to the result of liberation of nations, such as Poland and Czechoslovakia, previously trapped under strict authoritarian rule.

Box: 72 Folder : 46 Authority Conference: A Three-Day Discourse on Production and the Division of Labor.

Historical note

The Authority Conference brought approximately 20 humanistic scholars together in order to discuss authority, production, and the division of labor and how those topics are treated in thought, theory, and practice in various humanities fields. Intellectual goals stated in a letter of invitation were to better "understand how the productive processes of modern society are changing in ways not anticipated in past social theory" and to "expand the meaning of the term 'production' itself, so that it appears as a cultural, psychological, and epistemological category as well as a category in political economy." The final desired outcome of the conference was to set up an ongoing working group to pursue whatever develops during the sessions.

Scope and Contents

Session 1: "The Production of Meaning" lead by Anthony Giddens and Bernard Williams. Session 2: "The Economic and Psychological Conflicts in the Division of Labor" lead by Dick Sennett and Bob Solow.

Box: 72 Folder : 92 Inventing Times Square Lecture Series (I). "The Urban Face of Capitalism." A Lecture by David Harvey

Scope and Contents

David Harvey gives the innagural lecture in the Inventing Times Square Conference/Lecture series. The theme of this first session in the series is "Developing a Place: The Dynamics of Commercial Culture." His lecture, "The Urban Face of Captialism" discusses political and economic processes in general and more specifically their relationship to urban and commercial development. This leads to themes of the organization of space and time in societies in general and capitalist societies in particular.

Historical Note

During the 1988-89 academic year, the NYIH held the monthly conference series, Inventing New York. This consisted of day-long sessions with lectures, panels of scholars and commissioned papers discussing different themes in the "emergence of modern American commercial culture" using Times Square as a representative focal point.

The proposal describes the the various themes, stating, "Panels one and two deal with the economic context in which entrepreneurial development was made possible, and with the roles of particular promoters and entrepreneurs. The next two panels examine the spatial and aesthetic forms of this new world of cultural consuption (i.e. the architecture, interior design and aesthetic character of the major institutional stores), and the performance dimension of theatre, deance and show that created the excitement and drew the crowds. The concluding sessions challenge to existing moral conventions, and the efforts of these new forces in the culture to give their energies protective coloration -- first by flying the flag and then by appealing to new kinds of cosmopolitan sophistication."

This proposal became manifest in the following themed conferences:

I. Developing a Place: The Dynamics of Commercial Culture II. Producing a Place: Promoters, Politicians, Entrepreneurs III. Imaging a Place: The Aesthetics of the Commercial World IV. The Life of a Place: Performance and Pleasure V. Policing a Place: The Politics of Respectability VI. Remembering a Place: From Patriotism to Cosmopolitanism

Box: 74 Folder : 23 The Act of Censoring: Session I of the Censorship and Writers Conference

Scope and Contents

Recording of the introduction to and the first session of the Writers and Censorship Conference hosted by the New York Institute for the Humanities on February 1-2, 1980. This first session took place on the evening of February 1, is lead by Bob Silvers and Aryeh Neier and deals with the act of censoring, itself. Richard Sennet introduces the theme of the conference (described below) and welcomes the leaders of the first session.

This conference focuses on the question "What does censorship do in terms of the act of writing?" The premise of this two day conference is the complicated relationship between writer and censor and between writing and censorship. This involves discussion on how the two are not necessarily diametrically opposed. Questions of complicity between the two are explored, looking at how the writer may serve as his own censor, creating a grey area between the act of expression and the act of repression. Rather than formal presentations, each session was started by one or two people "put some ideas on the table" and then a general discussion among the participants.

The conference comprised three sessions; an evening session on February 1, 1980 and then morning and afternoon sessions the following day. Session 1 (evening, 2/1/80) was lead by Bob Silvers Aryeh Neier discussing the act of censoring, itself. Session 2 (morning, 2/2/80) was lead by Arthur Miller and Dick Sennet, discussing cultural censorship. Miller focused on cultural censorship in China, while Sennet lead the discussion toward "etherial cultural censorship." Session 3 (afternoon, 2/2/80) was lead by Joseph Brodsky and touched on the ambiguities involved in self-censorship involved in the very act of creating.
