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.

Faculty Forum, “Creole Contracts”

February 28 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Dr. Hollian Wint will present her work titled "Creole Contracts: Rethinking the Problem of Trust in Indian Ocean Commerce".

In the nineteenth century, dense networks of credit, capital, and commodities connected the coastal and interior societies of East Africa to producers and consumers in the Persian Gulf and western India. Most studies of these Indian Ocean commercial linkages focus on culturally-bounded trading networks, explaining the organization of proto-capitalist and pre-colonial commerce through the categories of family capital and community trust. Yet the benefits of family capital did not always outweigh its costs and the success of Indian Ocean traders depended on tactically claiming and denying family support and obligations. Rethinking the relationship between trust and intimacy in regional commerce, this talk foregrounds the inter-communal relationships--between Indians, Arabs, and Africans--and inter-vernacular contractual conversions--between Arabic and Gujarati--that were at the core of Indian Ocean 'creole' capitalism.

“How To Be You”, Overcoming Bullying and Hate

March 28 @ 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm

Based on their best-selling book “How To Be You,” Jeffrey Marsh tells deeply personal stories of being bullied at home and school. Because of this bullying, Jeffrey has an intense conviction that the only gateway to understand how to love in general is to learn love for yourself specifically. Jeffrey details how they’ve turned hate into love and trauma into triumph, and how you can do it too. Jeffrey tells dynamic stories of daily messages from people who are suicidal and yet have decided to live because of Jeffrey's work. This talk pulls apart the intensity of the hate that can often invade queer lives, while giving practical everyday tips for moving forward with love.
