The 'Tropes Trap": Disability Rhetoric in Higher Education
2:00 PM - 3:30 PM

Main Campus - Stern Student Center

Stereotypes endure in a culture when they are reinforced as the norm for that group of people — where society can view one person with a disability as representative of the whole. This culture does nothing to promote social equality. Media has the power to transform and influence people’s perceptions about disability. Due to this, stereotypes have been reinforced in the media, cultivating negative attitudes about disabilities. Margaret Camp (Director of Disability Services at the University of South Carolina – Upstate) will be visiting the College of Charleston to talk about these myths and stereotypes in an effort to reframe how people perceive disability. Awareness can be the first step in reframing thinking and promoting equality. Speaker Bio: Speaker Bio: Margaret received her M.Ed. in School Psychology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and completed a double major in Psychology and Philosophy at Guilford College in Greensboro, NC. Prior to her position at USC Upstate, Margaret taught Montessori preschool, taught for TIP at Duke University and worked for Head Start, Project Autism, the North Carolina Education Research Council and the Autism Research Center. She was chosen as one of 24 higher education professionals across the country to participate in Project Shift, a Department of Education federally funded grant that spanned three years and took her from Colorado to Minnesota to Oregon. She has presented material at several national conferences about shifting from a medical model to a social justice model of service delivery. Margaret’s research interests include cultural representations of disability, disability awareness programming and disability identity.

Jarosinski is a former German professor at the University of Pennsylvania who left academia to pursue a literary career as launched, seemingly absurdly, by his Twitter persona Nein.Quarterly. He speaks compellingly (and bitingly and humorously) about technology, aphorism, language and education. As a #failedintellectual (the hashtag with which he labels himself) Jarosinski has a regular column in Die Zeit and his "manifesto" will be published in 2015 in the US, Canada, Germany, the Netherlands and Great Britain. He's been written up in He has been written up in the Guardian, the FAZ, The Chronicle of Higher Education, Der Spiegel, the Paris Review, The New Yorker and others.

“World's Fairs in a Southern Accent," Book talk by historian Bruce Harvey
6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Main Campus - Addlestone Library - (Room 227)

Historian and documentary photographer, Bruce G. Harvey, will speak on his recent book, World’s Fairs in a Southern Accent: Atlanta, Nashville, and Charleston, 1895-1902. Harvey’s book focuses on three Southern World’s Fair expositions held at the turn of the twentieth century, including Charleston’s own South Carolina Inter-State and West Indian Exposition held in 1901-1902 on the land that makes up current-day Hampton Park. Harvey’s talk will center on the Charleston Expo, which was the Carolina Lowcountry’s answer to the world-wise craze of world’s fairs and a vehicle to bring the nation’s attention to the old city and its harbor. These world’s fairs, in cities like Chicago, Philadelphia, Paris, and others, were designed to showcase the most exciting commercial and technological advances. They brought together people from far away to marvel at the exhibits and events on display, and were wildly popular throughout the world. They were fun and exciting, but they were also serious business endeavors, and a city that could host one gained attention for its industry and savvy. Leaders of all types in southern cities in the late 19th century turned to world’s fairs as an important way to tap into this enthusiasm and thus to give their cities and the South a sense of legitimacy. This well-illustrated presentation will discuss the men and women who created Charleston’s fair, the buildings and grounds, the wide range of exhibits, the lure of the West Indies, and the lasting legacies. Join us after the talk for a book signing.

Jewish Values and the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict
7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Main Campus - Stern Student Center - (Ballroom)

The slowing of the peace process and the frequent surges of violence in Israel-Palestine have undermined any sense of Jewish consensus on these polarizing political issues, and continue to create a rupture between what constitutes a “Jewish” conversation and an “Israel conversation.” In this talk we will explore whether a Jewish values conversation is possible about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict; and we will study how a conceptual approach to thinking about justice from a philosophical and Jewish text perspective can inform our communal conversation and our understanding of these issues. Yehuda Kurtzer is President of the Shalom Hartman Institute of North America. He holds degrees from Harvard University, Brown University, and is an alumnus of both the Wexner Graduate and Bronfman Youth Fellowship programs. Yehuda is the author of Shuva: The Future of the Jewish Past. He lives in New York with his wife, Stephanie Ives, and their three children. The Milton Kronsberg Lecture Series began in the Fall of 1999 as a result of a generous endowment by the Kronsberg family. In the Fall of 2002, the series became the Milton and Freddie Kronsberg Memorial Lecture Series because of the passing of Freddie Kronsberg obm. The series honors the Kronsberg’s lifelong commitment to Jewish ideas and values.

Guest Lecture: Muslims and Christians in Medieval Spain
3:15 PM - 4:45 PM

Main Campus - Tate Center

What images are conjured up when one thinks of Muslims in Pre-Modern Europe? The Infidel, mujahid, the enemy and victim of Crusaders, the “Blackamoor” Othello, or predatory Barbary Pirates? Whatever the case, Islam is typically seen as the “Other” to Christian Europe. Few scholars and fewer among the broader public are aware that substantial populations of Muslims lived within Christian European society during the Middle Ages and into the Early Modern period. Brian A. Catlos, author of the prize-winning Muslims of Medieval Latin Christendom, ca. 1050–1614 (Cambridge: 2014), is the first scholar to carry out a comprehensive study of these communities. What emerges is that these Muslims were not merely hapless victims of colonialism, but active participants in the larger societies, cultures and economies in which they lived. In this presentation, Catlos will provide an overview of Muslims’ presence and role in pre-Modern European societies and examine the factors that led to their prosperity and their decline.

Guest Lecture: Religious Freedom, Incorporated
3:15 PM - 4:45 PM

Main Campus - Education Center - (Room 118)

In the wake of the 2014 Burwell v. Hobby Lobby decision, many wondered how corporations could exercise religious liberty.  Those who attacked the decision decried the extension of rights to legal fictions rather than flesh-and-blood human beings. However, this decision might not be that surprising in light of American traditions that tie legal rights to owning property.  This talk will consider what the decision tells us about how the Court imagines the relationship among human bodies, property, and personhood.

Main Campus - The Marion and Wayland H. Cato Jr. Center for the Arts - (Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art)

Each spring, current College of Charleston students are eligible to submit their recent work to the Young Contemporaries, giving them an opportunity to have their work chosen by a nationally prominent juror and exhibit in a professional gallery setting. The annual exhibition shows off the brightest talents coming out of the College’s School of the Arts, including painters, sculptors, printmakers, and photographers. This unique show gives students the opportunity to learn how to prepare for future gallery exhibits and helps them to practice the type of professionalism necessary for success in such a competitive field. The Post and Courier calls the Young Contemporaries exhibit, “One of the highlights of the year.” This year’s entries are sure to impress. Concurrent with Young Contemporaries will be the Salon des Refusés exhibition, showing in the Hill Exhibition Gallery within The Marion and Wayland H. Cato Jr. Center for the Arts. The origin of the Salon des Refusés dates to Paris in 1863, when artists who had been rejected from the official Salon caused such a protest that Emperor Napoleon III ordered another exhibition held for them. Among the painters in this Salon des Refusés were Camille Pissaro, Henri Fantin-Latour, James M. Whistler, and Edouard Manet.

Ethnomusicologist Lecture
4:00 PM

Main Campus - The Marion and Wayland H. Cato Jr. Center for the Arts

Guest Lecture: Individual memories, Brazilian longings:Nostalgia, popular music and television by Daniel Sharp, Tulane University

This presentation examines how music and mass media contribute to the production of the northeast region of Brazil as a nostalgic space in the national imaginary, distanced from modern national identities. It focuses on the televised images and sounds of two groups from the semi-arid interior city of Arcoverde, Pernambuco: Samba de Coco Raízes de Arcoverde, marked as traditional, and Cordel do Fogo Encantado, marketed as a rooted cos- mopolitan sound. It traces how both groups face an idiosyncratic play of social inclusion and social exclusion, as being celebrated as the symbolic essence of a region does not necessarily translate into the material benefits of full cultural citizenship. Cordel and Coco Raízes have made progress in their efforts to proliferate more nuanced contemporary narratives of the music of the northeast. Yet, as their audience broadens, both continue to find themselves ensnared in the very discourses of folkloric tradition that they seek to transform.

Challenges of the Iraq War
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Avery Research Center for African American History and Culture

Lecture and Book Signing: “Challenges of the Iraq War,” Ken Walden, PhD, Hood Theological Seminary, Avery Research Center, McKinley Washington Auditorium, 6 pm The Iraq War caused emotional, physical, psychiatric, relational, and spiritual challenges to an untold number of military reservists and their families. In this presentation, Ken J. Walden takes you through the war's critical stages of pre-deployment, deployment, and post-deployment. Reservists' families, usually living far from military bases with professional staffing, are often among the most affected wounded of the Iraq War. Injured reservists often return home to discover that civilian medical resources are insufficient and civic organizations are unequipped to help manage the range of combat-related wounds and psychiatric trauma, especially post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury. As a military officer and academic scholar, Walden will analyze the various impacts of the Iraq War and recommend approaches for persons interested in participating in support for families suffering from experiences associated with the Iraq War. Ken Walden is an Associate Professor of pastoral care and counseling at the Hood Theological Seminary, and the author of Challenges Faced By Iraq War Reservists and Their Families (2012).

CofC Theatre: A Midsummer Night's Dream
7:30 PM

Main Campus - Simons Center - (Robinson Theatre)

In the 20th century, A Midsummer Night's Dream may have been Shakespeare’s most frequently performed play. So maybe you’ve seen it...maybe more than once. But it’s the 21st century now and you’ve probably never seen the play like this. One character flees into a mystical forest because her father is so disturbed by her choice of a marriage partner. Another makes the same bold decision because a young man denies that one night of love might have held the potential of a life long romance. What loves, in our world, could take such courage to proclaim and bravely pursue? Come see how Shakespeare’s beautiful text captures the magical spell of love, no matter who captures our hearts. This production presents all the beauty and comedy of Shakespeare’s text while defending the honor of gay and lesbian love. Directed by Mark Landis.

In Paper Cadavers, Kirsten Weld probes the politics of memory, the wages of the Cold War, and the stakes of historical knowledge production. After Guatemala's bloody thirty-six years of civil war (1960–1996), silence and impunity reigned. That is, until 2005, when human rights investigators stumbled on the archives of the country's National Police, which, at 75 million pages, proved to be the largest trove of secret state records ever found in Latin America. The unearthing of the archives renewed fierce debates about history, memory, and justice. In Paper Cadavers, Weld explores Guatemala's struggles to manage this avalanche of evidence of past war crimes, providing a firsthand look at how postwar justice activists worked to reconfigure terror archives into implements of social change. This event is co-sponsored by the departments of Latin American and Caribbean Studies, Hispanic Studies, Political Science, History, the Global Awareness Forum, and the Friends of the Library. Please join us afterwards for a book signing.

Young Contemporaries 2015
11:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Main Campus - The Marion and Wayland H. Cato Jr. Center for the Arts - (Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art)

Each spring, current College of Charleston students are eligible to submit their recent work to the Young Contemporaries, giving them an opportunity to have their work chosen by a nationally prominent juror and exhibit in a professional gallery setting. The annual exhibition shows off the brightest talents coming out of the College’s School of the Arts, including painters, sculptors, printmakers, and photographers. This unique show gives students the opportunity to learn how to prepare for future gallery exhibits and helps them to practice the type of professionalism necessary for success in such a competitive field. The Post and Courier calls the Young Contemporaries exhibit, “One of the highlights of the year.” This year’s entries are sure to impress. Concurrent with Young Contemporaries will be the Salon des Refusés exhibition, showing in the Hill Exhibition Gallery within The Marion and Wayland H. Cato Jr. Center for the Arts. The origin of the Salon des Refusés dates to Paris in 1863, when artists who had been rejected from the official Salon caused such a protest that Emperor Napoleon III ordered another exhibition held for them. Among the painters in this Salon des Refusés were Camille Pissaro, Henri Fantin-Latour, James M. Whistler, and Edouard Manet.

A Revolving Landscape – Lecture by John K. Grande
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Main Campus - Simons Center - (Room 309)

As the landscape and environments change on our planet, artists’ engagement with nature becomes increasingly relevant to the broader cultural discourse on globalization and ecology. Regional initiatives involving art actions that involves nature and process take precedence over the object as sculpture. John K. Grande, who has curated 5 editions of Earth Art at the Royal Botanical Gardens in Burlington, Ontario and Van Dusen Gardens, Vancouver, British Columbia, presents examples of an art that expresses our connectedness to the earth. Grande will present an important portal of discovery, where art becomes part of our origins within nature’s systems, but equally represents a future continuity of art that is part of the evolution of human culture in a post-oil economy.

New Student Convocation
10:00 AM

Convocation is an annual celebration at which students and faculty gather to celebrate the official opening of the scholastic year. Originally, “convocation” meant a gathering of the clergy or the divisions of a diocese; however, at the College of Charleston, the word and the event have evolved from their ecclesiastical roots to embrace the intellectual community as well. The College’s convocation welcomes new students to the liberal arts and sciences community and encourages them to consider their own intellectual journey through small group conversations with individual faculty. This occasion also serves to familiarize incoming students with the College’s academic traditions as well as the institution’s history, symbols and mottos. As part of convocation, faculty lead students through the arch at Porters Lodge and convene in the Cistern Yard as a new community of scholars. Students officially sign "the book." The inscription on that historic arch reads (in Greek) "Know Thyself."

Curious Tales of the Talmud
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Main Campus - Jewish Studies Center - (Arnold Hall)

The Talmud’s role as a primary source of Jewish law can obscure its value as a literary treasure. The stories in the Talmud reveal an imaginative richness that is a crucial part of the interpretation and preservation of a treasured culture. The course will draw upon the wisdom contained in hundreds of volumes of post-Talmudic literature. It is predicated on the understanding that the Talmud employed cryptic stories and parables to relay relevant and profound messages in a way that makes the reader an active partner in decoding the text and constructing its meaning. Written in esoteric language, these stories couch within them penetrating insights into life, our universe, God, humankind—and how they all come together.
