Student Looking for roommate starting Aug 31, 2019

Hi, I’m a fifth year mathematics graduate student and I am looking for a new roommate in a two bedroom apartment from August 31st through April 31st (lease can be renewed after April 31 and it is stabilized rent!) . The apartment is located in East Harlem and is a 10 minute walk from the 4,5, and 6 trains. Rent is $1,116 a month, plus utilities.

It is a cozy, well lit apartment with two spacious bedrooms.  It is by first avenue, near East Harlem Plaza (there is a Costco, Target, Planet Fitness, etc!). It is on the second floor of the building, and it was renovated recently so it has a new kitchen and bathroom. The neighborhood is very vibrant and homie, and there are a bunch of new restaurants in the area! It is a five minute walk from the GC housing.

For more info and pictures, please email me at llopezcruz@gradcenter.cuny.edu.

Altfest Graduate Internships, Summer 2018

Altfest Graduate Internship Program, Summer 2018

The Graduate Center Office of Career Planning and Professional Development facilitates partnerships with local institutions to host graduate student internships. The opportunities are meant to encourage graduate students to explore diverse career options, while developing skills and experience that will advance their career goals.

For summer 2018, we are allowing students to create their own internship opportunity at an organization that best suits their academic interests and/or professional goals. Students who find a summer internship with an organization may then apply to the Altfest Graduate Internship Program for funding. The program provides $4,000 for the summer; interns are expected to work a minimum of 120 total hours. The manner in which these hours are completed can be flexible, and will be agreed upon with the host during the application process. The Office of Career Planning and Professional Development is happy to assist students with their internships searches.   (more…)

Dear colleagues,

We are very pleased to announce that Issue 10 of SHIFT: Graduate Journal of Visual and Material Culture is now live!

SHIFT Graduate Journal of Visual and Material Culture

Issue 10: In the Seam[shiftjournal.org]

co-edited by Elizabeth Lee and Andrea Nitsche-Krupp

with Kaylee P. Alexander, Rachel Boate, Jane Boyes, Kristina Molin Cherneski, Ariana Panbechi and Jonah Marrs

Issue 10 of SHIFT, an institutionally mobile peer-reviewed graduate journal currently hosted by the Institute of Fine Arts, NYU, brings together articles that address an array of objects and eras: the sonic interventions of a tape recorder, a socially critical fin de siècle self-portrait, the Paisley patterns of a cotton shawl, the gold-accented ceramics of a Persian interior, and a little traffic light man who outlived the Iron Curtain. The home page features an original project and artwork by Jonah Marrs, and can be visited at https://shiftjournal.org/[shiftjournal.org]
