Lecture | Discovery to Action: Change from the Poles to Our Shores


The speaker writes: "The brilliant blue water atop the ice sheets is emblematic of rapid change at the ends of our earth. This change at the poles is now appearing at coastal communities around the globe. The changing ice sheets remain a frontier full of rich discovery; rivers, waterfalls and water that runs uphill. As these discoveries feed our ice sheet models they also motivate my individual actions to address how we can keep our planet both habitable and beautiful." Speaker Robin Bell is Palisades Geophysical Institute/Lamont Research Professor at Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory at Columbia University.

Lecture | Around 1962, from Algeria to the World


Algeria's independence from over one hundred and thirty years of French colonial domination almost immediately came to define how many people understood what "decolonization" tout court meant. Being known as the "Mecca of Revolutionaries" contributed to how much the Algerian Revolution meant to Algerians, especially to those who, in the name of this triumph, governed independent Algeria. Many other Algerians, however, have and continue to draw their own inspiration from this history. Speaker: Todd Shepard, Arthur O. Lovejoy Professor, Department of History, Krieger School of Arts & Sciences, Johns Hopkins University.
