PARSONS FESTIVAL: Opening Ceremony's Carol Lim and Humberto Leon in Conversation with Professor Hazel Clark


Dates:
Thu May 07, 2015 18:00 - Thu May 07, 2015

Location:
New York, New York
United States of America

Join Carol Lim and Humberto Leon of Opening Ceremony in conversation with Hazel Clark, Research Chair for Fashion at Parsons.

Opening Ceremony was founded in 2002 by two friends from UC Berkeley, Carol Lim and Humberto Leon, as a place to share their passions for travel, art, and fashion. Inspired by a trip to Hong Kong, the two decided to leave their jobs in corporate fashion to realize their unique dream. What began as a single store on a quiet street in downtown New York is now a global community with outposts in New York, London, and Los Angeles, a department store in Tokyo, a wholesale showroom, an in-house clothing line, a blog, an e-commerce site, a TV channel, and an annual magazine.

This event is part of Parsons Festival 2015.

Media Advocacy for Humanitarian Disarmament: From Landmines to Killer Robots


Dates:
Mon Oct 20, 2014 18:00 - Mon Oct 20, 2014

Location:
New York City, New York
United States of America

Join the School of Media Studies for a discussion with Mary Wareham, Jody Williams, and Peter Asaro.

Chaired by Dr. Peter Asaro, this panel discussion by Nobel Peace Laureate Ms. Jody Williams and Mary Wareham of Human Rights Watch will look at the evolving nature of media outreach and advocacy for humanitarian disarmament.

Williams and Wareham have collaborated together over the past twenty years on initiatives to ban antipersonnel landmines and cluster munitions. They are co-founders of the Campaign to Stop Killer Robots (www.stopkillerrobots.org), a global coalition of non-governmental organizations that is seeking a preemptive ban on weapons that would select and attack targets without meaningful human control.

The panelists will consider how media has reacted to and covered the challenges posed by autonomous weapons and call for a ban as well as the similarities and differences to media outreach and advocacy for campaigning against landmines and cluster munitions. They will discuss how the Internet and social media have changed the landscape, and also how new media has changed the campaign’s approaches to mainstream media and journalists.
