Spiro Hall

62356scr_fca2b88abe328f7Housing our computer center, and the Wagner College Planetarium, Spiro Hall is one of several classroom buildings on campus. Spiro Hall, like all our classroom buildings, has recently benefited from complete renovation. The Computer Center provides all students with access to a variety of computer facilities and includes fully equipped PC and Mac lab. Supplied with the latest technologies, these facilities are continuously updated. The Spiro Center serves as a resource for students, as either an addition or alternative to a student's personal computer. Staffed by a full time professional manager, the Center is also staffed by students who are able to assist with questions or problems.

The Wagner Planetarium is one of three in the New York City area. The other two are the Hayden Planetarium at the Museum of Natural History and the planetarium at Columbia University. The Planetarium is open to the public and serves as an educational tool, both for Wagner students, and for elementary, middle and high school students on Staten Island.

Sex, Gender, and Identity in Antiquity: Archaeology Society Lecture

January 28 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The Dr. Ester Grushkin Memorial Lecture will feature Dr. Megan Cifarelli
Professor of Art History, Manhattanville College.

About Topic
For centuries, the study of ancient civilizations was dominated by an approach that focused on the accomplishments and lives of men, and a few extraordinary women who succeeded in masculine spheres of activity. More contemporary approaches that integrate feminist theoretical perspectives have illuminated the significant roles of women in antiquity, and the social practices by which masculine and feminine roles were defined and performed. Rather than focusing on "Great Women" from the past, this talk will explore the limits of what we can know about the lives of ancient men and women from the perspective of material culture, by investigating the ways archaeologists try to understand the relationships between sexed bodies, gendered individuals, and grave goods in burial contexts.

2018 Black Scholar Lecture

February 22 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

Dr. Steve Perry and Wagner Alumnae Dr. Nadia Lopez '98, will serve as the 2018 Black Scholar Lecturers on February 22, 2018, at 4:30pm in Spiro 2. Conversation will be moderated by Provost McNair.

A reception and book signing will immediately follow the talk in the Union Gallery and atrium.

About Dr. Perry
Dr. Steve Perry is the educator Oprah Winfrey, Sean "P-Diddy" Combs, Bishop TD Jakes and Steve Harvey call on to offer insight to parents and children. A diverse array of politicians and groups, from the Urban League to ALEC, even President Donald Trump, have reached out to Dr. Perry to better understand what matters to parents.

Dr. Steve Perry's unique and powerful voice is respected and has been featured on MSNBC, Fox, CNN, Al Jazeera, TV One, BET and NBC as well as on the Oprah Winfrey network in multiple shows.

His courage and piercing insights provides a fascinating perspective that is not often found in public discourse. Too often race, class, gender and political affiliations mute others voices. Dr. Perry fearlessly speaks from the heart, which births unpredictability.

About Dr. Lopez
Dr. Lopez has been described as "an educator, pioneering a path of inspired leadership to show the world how under-privileged communities can make beat the odds and create positive institutions that have a global impact.

As the founding Principal of Mott Hall Bridges Academy, a New York City Public School, Nadia became internationally known after the popular blog, Humans of New York (HONY), featured one of her students. This student told HONY founder, Brandon Stanton, that the greatest influence on his life was his Principal, Nadia. Nadia’s story became a viral sensation as millions of people around the world became impressed with the positive learning environment, high expectations, and growing success rate at a school right in the middle of one of the most under-served communities in America.

This lecture is sponsored, in part, by the Office of the Provost, the Division of Campus Life, the Center for Intercultural Advancement and the Office of Co-Curricular Programs.

Archaeology Lecture: The Mississippian Period, Dr. Anna Semon

March 18 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The Dr. George G. Hackman Memorial Lecture by Dr. Anna Semon (Director, North American Archaeology Lab, American Museum of Natural History)

Mississippian pottery production and use on the Georgia coast

The Mississippian period (A.D. 200–1580) on the Georgia coast consisted of chiefdoms structured by a diverse landscape of villages, council houses, mortuary sites, earthen mounds, and camp/processing areas.

Recent archaeological investigations of village and mortuary sites on St. Catherines Island, GA have provided new insight into Mississippian life on the coast, including village organization, subsistence practices, burial practices, wood-carving traditions, and pottery manufacturing.

In this lecture, we will focus on complicated-stamped pottery recovered from St. Catherines Island and discuss how this pottery can be used to reconstruct life along the Georgia coast on the cusp of European contact, especially the social interactions surrounding how the pottery was made and used.

Archaeology Lecture: Maritime Trade in Medieval Japan, Dr. Michelle Damian

April 8 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Archaeological Institute of America Lecture by Dr. Michelle Damian (Assistant Professor of History at Monmouth College)

Maritime Trade Networks of Medieval Japan</em

This study demonstrates that despite the political upheaval of Japan’s late medieval period (15th–16thc), trade connections within the Inland Sea region actually flourished, resulting in the beginnings of a regional commodities market.

Until now, it has been difficult to track maritime practices in this era due to the lack of written records of medieval seafaring. Using geospatial analysis of extant documentary and archaeological evidence, however, it becomes possible to discern the flow of certain commercial goods within the Seto Inland Sea region. Through this analysis it becomes apparent that smaller ports largely unrecorded in written documents were often critical transshipment hubs, facilitating trade in the region. Furthermore, geospatial analysis allows tracking of ship captains’ voyages, providing insight into medieval seafaring practices and proving the existence of complex individual and institutional maritime networks.

Admission
This lecture is FREE and open to all. Meet the speaker over coffee and cake following each lecture.
