Book Discussion | Witch Hunt: A Traveler's Guide to the Power and Persecution of the Witch, The Author in Conversation (virtual)


Part history, part travelogue, part memoir, Witch Hunt is a captivating guide to the historic witch hunts and how their legacy continues to impact us today. Traveling through cities and sites across Italy, France, Germany, Ireland, the United Kingdom, and the United States, author Kristen J. Sollee--a second-generation witch herself--explores the witch as a figure of female power and persecution. By infusing an adventurous first-person narrative with extensive research and imaginative historical fiction, Witch Hunt captures the magic of travel to make an often-overlooked period of history come alive.

India and China successfully managed their relationship for almost forty years. Recently, however, a narrative of India and China as destined for conflict has taken hold in public discourse in both countries. This lecture will examine whether this is so, and the role of changing Asian geopolitics in the shifting prospects of India-China relations.

Book Discussion | The New American Farmer: Author Discusses Her Book (virtual)


In her new book, The New American Farmer, Dr. Laura-Anne Minkoff-Zern explores the experiences of Latino/a immigrant farmers as they transition from farmworkers to farm owners, offering a new perspective on racial inequity and sustainable farming. She finds that many of these new farmers rely on farming practices from their home countries--including growing multiple crops simultaneously, using integrated pest management, maintaining small-scale production, and employing family labor--most of which are considered alternative farming techniques in the United States. Minkoff-Zern describes the social, economic, and political barriers immigrant farmers must overcome, from navigating USDA bureaucracy to racialized exclusion from opportunities. She argues that, despite a range of challenges, they are actively and substantially contributing to the movement for an ecological and sustainable food system.

Slide Lecture | Radical Housewives: Jewish Women's Activism on the Lower East Side (virtual)


Trace the footsteps of Jewish women activists on the Lower East Side. Learn how they laid the groundwork for the modern Women's Movement with historian and writer Jennifer Young. At the turn of the 20th century, Jewish women on the Lower East Side struggled to support their families by keeping house in dark, crowded, and unsanitary tenement apartments, and by working long hours in factories and sweatshops. Confronted with low wages and unsafe working conditions, as well as rising costs of food and rent, many women responded by joining unions, organizing pickets, and even rioting in the streets.
