8:30 AM

Avery Research Center for African American History and Culture

Originally curated in 2009 as part of the Avery Research Center’s traveling exhibition program, this exhibition will reopen in 2014 in observance of the 50th anniversary of the 1964 Freedom Summer. Dr. Cleveland L. Sellers was born in Denmark, South Carolina and attended Howard University.

In 1964, Sellers joined SNCC’s Mississippi Summer Project (also known as Freedom Summer) to organize African-American voter registration in Mississippi. Three civil rights activists, James Chaney, Andrew Goodman, and Mickey Schwerner were infamously murdered while working on this project.

Shimmering Presences: Frog, Toad, & Toxic Interdependencies
6:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Main Campus - School of Education, Health, and Human Performance Building - (Alumni Center)

The Department of Philosophy and the SC Coastal Conservation League are sponsoring Alexis Shotwell of Carlton University will presenting her paper "Shimmering Presences: Frog, Toad, & Toxic Interdependencies. This paper is about anurans – frogs and toads. I attend both to the trope of gender-bending and disabled amphibians and to their actual bodies and lives, arguing for a queer disability attention to the toxic present as a kind of responsibility. Anurans have, over the last ten years, been frequently held up as warning signs for biological dangers inherent in many of our practices around food, climate, and mining. Industrial production, whether of corn or petroleum, has effects on the world around it. As I'll explore, one of the main ways people argue that these effects are too harmful to justify current production practices evokes gender and disability danger; humans, the warning goes, will be born disabled, queer, or genderqueer if we continue using or producing certain substances. And the way we know this, the narrative continues, is that frogs and toads are being born with bodily anomalies including ambiguous genitalia, changed voiceboxes, extra limbs, and more. My agenda is not to argue that we should not be worried about toxins and their effects – worry and action are both, I believe, at least justified and almost certainly necessary. Rather, I argue that we ought to cultivate practices of responsibility for the toxic present we are implicated in creating that do not rely on anti-disability or trans-hating tropes and that simultaneously do not attend to anurans merely as indicator species. I look toward “civilian scientists” – ordinary people who practice a naturalist’s attention to their world – as exemplars of this kind of practice of responsibility.

Resume vs. CV Workshop
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Main Campus - Lightsey Center - (Career Center, room 216)
Main Campus - Lightsey Center

The primary differences between a resume and a curriculum vitae (CV) are the length, what is included and what each is used for. A resume is a one or two page summary of your skills, experience and education. While a resume is brief and concise - no more than a page or two, a curriculum vitae is a longer (at least two pages) and more detailed synopsis. A curriculum vitae includes a summary of your educational and academic backgrounds as well as teaching and research experience, publications, presentations, awards, honors, affiliations and other details. In Europe, the Middle East, Africa, or Asia, employers may expect to receive a curriculum vitae. In the United States, a curriculum vitae is used primarily when applying for academic, education, scientific or research positions. It is also applicable when applying for fellowships or grants. Come to this workshop to find out do you need a CV or Resume?

Cleveland L. Sellers: The SNCC Years, Coming Through the Fire (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Avery Research Center for African American History and Culture

Originally curated in 2009 as part of the Avery Research Center’s traveling exhibition program, this exhibition will reopen in 2014 in observance of the 50th anniversary of the 1964 Freedom Summer. Dr. Cleveland L. Sellers was born in Denmark, South Carolina and attended Howard University. While at Howard, Sellers became a member of the Nonviolent Action Group (NAG), an affiliate of SNCC (Student Nonviolence Coordinating Committee). In 1964, Sellers joined SNCC’s Mississippi Summer Project (also known as Freedom Summer) to organize African-American voter registration in Mississippi. Three civil rights activists, James Chaney, Andrew Goodman, and Mickey Schwerner were infamously murdered while working on this project. SNCC members eventually elected Sellers to be their Program Secretary in 1965. Today, Dr. Sellers is the president of Voorhees University in Denmark, South Carolina. This exhibition draws from the Cleveland Sellers archival collection at the Avery Research Center and features letters, newspapers, magazines, photographs, music, broadsides, and ephemera that document the Freedom Summer project.

Bringing Biblical Stories to Life in the Synagogue
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Main Campus - Jewish Studies Center - (Arnold Hall)

For over two millennia, Jews have read from the Torah every week in the synagogue, but each generation finds new and creative ways to make the stories their own. Whether it is imagining Queen Esther as a medieval “crypto-Jew” or Joshua as a proto-Zionist, the biblical characters are imagined in ways that make them speak to their new audiences, generation after generation. In this talk, we’ll explore together some of the poignant, startling, and laugh-out-loud ways the stories of the Torah have been retold in synagogues since antiquity. Laura Lieber is an associate professor of Religious Studies at Duke University, and co-director of the Center for Jewish Studies. She received her BA in English and Classics from the University of Arkansas (her home state), her rabbinical ordination from HUC-JIR in Cincinnati, and her PhD from the University of Chicago. Her most recent book is A Vocabulary of Desire: The Song of Songs in the Ancient Synagogue; her current research is on theater and performance in Jewish antiquity.

Reflecting Upon Brown vs. Board of Education, 1954
11:00 AM - 11:50 AM

Dr. Gloria Ladson-Billings will delve deeply into examing the Brown vs. Board of Education court case. The Supreme Court's Brown decision was particularly important because it was not based on the gross inequalities in facilities and other tangible factors that characterized previous desegregation cases. In Brown, the Court dealt directly with segregation and ruled that even if tangible factors like facilities, teachers and supplies were equal, separation itself was inherently unequal and a violation of the equal protection clause of the 14th amendment. With Brown, the Court effectively overturned the infamous 1896 case of Plessy v. Ferguson which had permitted racial segregation under the guise of "separate but equal."

Thoughts of the Rebbe: Transformational Teachings of the Lubavitcher Rebbe
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Known to many simply as “the Rebbe,” Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson assumed leadership of the Chabad Lubavitch movement in 1950, when it consisted of a small group of European refugees struggling to rebuild their lives after the war. Over the next four decades, the Rebbe established a worldwide network of educational, social, and religious institutions. This course coincides with the 20th anniversary of the Rebbe’s passing and addresses the following questions: What are the Rebbe’s central teachings and contributions to Judaism and society? What was his understanding of the human being and what were his aspirations for humanity? What accounts for the continued success of the Chabad- Lubavitch movement? And most importantly, how can we apply these insights toward living a more purposeful life? August 25 – Seeing a Beautiful Garden September 15 – Realizing Your Potential October 20 – Minding Your Mission November 17 – Opening Our Eyes Rabbi Hesh Epstein has been the Executive Director of Chabad Lubavitch of South Carolina since 1987. His evening courses have become a regular and popular fixture of Jewish Studies community education offerings.

Three Rabbi Panel: The Day of Rest
7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Main Campus - Stern Student Center - (Ballroom)

The centrality of the Shabbat is a pivotal part of the history of Judaism, so central that it is taken to be both a reflection of the very creation of the world and the freedom from slavery in Egypt. Its observance is one of the Ten Commandments, and a distinguishing feature of the Jew who continues to think of Saturday as the “day of rest.” Like many commandments, the Sabbath’s centrality is clearer than its proper expression. How is Shabbat, Shabbos, or the Sabbath to be observed? Some adhere to strict rabbinic regulations which forbid all sorts of “work,” thinking of automobiles, electricity, and carrying parcels as forbidden activities, thereby clearly delineating the consecration of Shabbos. Others think of those restrictions as archaic, and think that the modern world needs a more contemporary expression of Shabbat’s significance. And there is lots of room in between those views. Join three of Charleston’s gifted leaders as Rabbis Stephanie Alexander (KKBE), Adam Rosenbaum (Emanu-El) and Moshe Davis (BSBI) reflect on Shabbat observance, both as it is practiced within their own communities and as their denominations describe its significance. This is our chai year for the Three Rabbi Panel, the eighteenth year of bringing the community together and showcasing Charleston’s Jewish leadership. After the event, Jewish Studies will host a reception for this milestone event. Please join us for the celebration.

Are There Such Things as Jewish Values?
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Main Campus - Jewish Studies Center - (Arnold Hall)

It is common for Jews to say that they are motivated by Jewish (or Torah) values or that they seek ethical guidance in Jewish teachings. This is even true of many who have no interest in Jewish rituals. But are there any such things as Jewish values? In this talk Professor David Benatar will examine this and related uncomfortable questions about the relationship between ethics, on the one hand, and Judaism (and religion more generally) on the other. David Benatar is Professor and Head of Philosophy at the University of Cape Town, South Africa. He is the author of Better Never to Have Been: The Harm of Coming into Existence (Oxford, 2006) and The Second Sexism: Discrimination Against Men and Boys (Wiley-Blackwell, 2012). He is currently an ethics research fellow at the National Institute of Health in Bethesda, Maryland.

Playwright Tom Stoppard’s (Aracadia, and the film - Shakespeare in Love) modern dramatic masterpiece, Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead is an absurdly comical examination of the misadventures of two minor characters in Shakespeare’s Hamlet. Structured as the inverse of Shakespeare’s play, the title characters are the leads and Hamlet becomes the smaller role, this “Laurel and Hardy-like” duo largely appear while they are “off-stage” in Hamlet and while there they grapple cleverly and comically with life’s fundamental questions.

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.

The stereotypical image of the artist’s studio as a paint-splattered, sparsely furnished garret where the lone artist toils away producing their brilliant works is in much need of re-examination. Many artists’ studios are a far cry from this description, and serve very different functions for their inhabitants. This exhibition will examine the relationship between the studio and the work produced within it by two contemporary artists who will recreate their studio spaces within the Halsey Institute’s galleries.

Shakespeare Project - Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead
7:30 PM - 10:00 PM

Main Campus - Simons Center
Main Campus - Simons Center - (Robinson Theatre)

Playwright Tom Stoppard’s (Aracadia, and the film - Shakespeare in Love) modern dramatic masterpiece, Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead is an absurdly comical examination of the misadventures of two minor characters in Shakespeare’s Hamlet. Structured as the inverse of Shakespeare’s play, the title characters are the leads and Hamlet becomes the smaller role, this “Laurel and Hardy-like” duo largely appear while they are “off-stage” in Hamlet and while there they grapple cleverly and comically with life’s fundamental questions.
