Speaker: Lewis Eliot, PhD Candidate, University of South Carolina. Abolition in the British Caribbean has been celebrated as a vital cornerstone in the ending of slavery in the Atlantic basin. The realities of life for the now free Afro-Caribbean people, however, remained dangerous, given the consistent threat of re-enslavement from slavers from Latin America, Caribbean pirates, and nefarious people traffickers. This talk will examine the ramifications of this trade for the imperial governments involved, the smugglers capturing and selling their prohibited cargoes, and most importantly for the newly re-enslaved.

Arguably the world's most valuable, busiest and most crowded pieces of real estate, Midtown Manhattan is what most visitors think of when they think of New York City. Home to some of the city's most iconic architecture, from Gothic to Post-Modern and from Beaux-Arts to Art Deco (lots of Art Deco). it's not difficult to understand why. But just behind the massive facades, lie facinating histories just waiting to be unveiled.

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.

At the beginning of the Obama Administration, and in the wake of the Russia-Georgia War of 2008, Secretary of State Hiliary Clinton initiated a much-publicized reset of U.S.-Russia relations. Subsequent conflicts over Ukraine and Syria and the further deterioration in U.S.-Russia relations suggest that the approach failed to address fundamental sources of tension in the relationship.Now, with President Trump and his close advisors potentially indicating a willingness to re-engage with Russia and to even abandon certain long-standing U.S. positions, the question of a possible Trump-Putin “reset”, its parameters and significance, have once again become a central foreign policy issue.Speakers will address the issue of why reconfiguring U.S.-Russia relations has proven so difficult and why efforts to improve U.S.-Russia relations in the past, including the “reset” under the Obama administration, have unravelled.Featuring Stephen Kotkin (Princeton), Daniel Nexon (Georgetown) and Yuval Weber (Harvard University; Davis Center; HSE).

Edward S. Curtis is famous for his monumental effort to photographically document traditional Native North Americans in the early twentieth century before they succumbed to assimilation. He is equally infamous within scholarly circles for fabricating a romantic and stereotyped image of Native people at odds with their actual lives at the time. Based on extensive research with one of the tribes prominently featured in Curtis's work, including the collaborative restoration of his spectacular 1914 melodramatic feature film, In the Land of the Head Hunters, Dr. Aaron Glass will address the controversy surrounding Curtis's pictures and assert that we can read a history of Indigenous agency and modernity through the veneer of his colonialist nostalgia.

In 1864 a U.S. army doctor dug up the remains of a Dakota man who had been killed in Minnesota. Carefully recording his observations, he sent the skeleton to a museum in Washington, DC, that was collecting human remains for research. In the “bone rooms” of this museum and others like it, a scientific revolution was unfolding that would change our understanding of the human body, race, and prehistory. This illustrated lecture unearths the story of how human remains became highly sought-after arti…

Make art and meet neighbors at this event from an artist-run collective that fosters community dialogue through creative collaboration.The Laundromat Project believes art, culture, and engaged imaginations can change the way people see their world, open them up to new ideas, and connect them with their neighbors. When artists have the opportunity to build and contribute their unique skills and perspectives to the needs of their neighborhoods, they can be invaluable assets in furthering community well-being. When the skills and strategies for igniting creativity are made broadly available to everyday people and purposefully applied as tools for envisioning a new and better world, these can be powerful forces for positive, transformative change.

In this class, learn simple, yet highly sophisticated, time-tested self-diagnostic tools that will enable you to nip health concerns in the bud. Traditional Chinese medicine has techniques for assessing the balance of vital energy (chi) throughout the body. Deficient or stagnant chi produces outward signs visible on the face, tongue and eyes and can even alter our voice patterns. Learn to read these signs and symptoms so that we can correct underlying problems and prevent disease. They will cover pulse, face, tongue and eye analysis; the art of “differential diagnosis,” which enables you to trace the origins of our symptoms; and how to go about correcting the imbalances you discover with targeted nutrition, herbs and exercise.With: Drew DiVittorio
