Speaker: Leo Garofalo, Associate Professor of History, Connecticut College.From 1471 to 1700, enslaved and free Africa- and Europe-born African people made up perhaps 20% of southern Iberia’s urban populations. As sailors, soldiers, traders, artisans, and servants, they became part of Spanish expansion into the Americas and Asia, and raiding and trading in Africa. Archival documents from the 1530s to 1680s reveal struggles for survival by individuals and families in a branch of the African Diaspora rooted in Europe. Through their movement and resettlements, they helped shape Iberian, IberoAmerican, and Philippine societies.

Many people think of the New York City subway as one of the largest, most efficient, if not the cleanest mass transit systems in the world. Few, however, think of it as the largest and longest art gallery on the planet. Well, they don't know what they are missing. This lively walking AND subway riding tour visits over a dozen subway stations to experience a selection of these striking often whimsical works that go largely unnoticed by the general public. Join this climate controlled subway and walking art tour. Along the way you'll learn about and become expert at navigating the (in)famous NYC subway system. There's also the invaluable opportunity to confer about your other sightseeing plans with the acclaimed Bronx born, vastly experienced licensed NYC tour guide, Darryl Reilly. Tour takes place every Thursday.

Lecture |
This paper investigates the mothers of illegitimate children in medieval Europe and their encounters with the law. Men and their illegitimate children have received some scholarly attention, but we know very little about the mothers. Fathers and their legal rights and obligations concerning their illegitimate children are likewise the subject of far more detailed discussion in medieval canon law and secular law codes. Mothers of illegitimate children, meanwhile, particularly married women, and the legal relationships of these mothers to illegitimate children, have received far less attention, both in the contemporary legal and non-legal sources, and also in modern scholarship. Lecturer Sara McDougall is Associate Professor of History at John Jay College of Criminal Justice. Her first book, Bigamy and Christian Identity in Late Medieval Champagne (U Penn, 2012) examined the earliest known prosecutions for bigamy in medieval Europe.
