"Patricia Boinest Potter: Patterns of Place"
11:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Patricia Boinest Potter creates enigmatic artworks in the form of three-dimensional maps that she refers to as Isomorphic Map Tables and 1:1 Map Insets. Ostensibly representing a one-hundred-mile stretch of northern Alabama, these works also expand outward to the cosmos, then inward again into the dark energy of particle physics. The exhibition will include a series of six Map Tables and one hundred 1:1 Map Insets. The show offers a tantalizing mix of technical experimentation, metaphoric expansiveness, and curiosity in every square inch. Potter’s formal language is largely abstract, yet the resulting imagery defies categorization into any existing canon of art history. Joseph Cornell’s precious boxes offer the closest shorthand comparison, but the Isomorphic Map Tables and 1:1 Map Insets contains seeds for different ways of knowing—new systems for apprehending the world. At once philosophical and scientific, Potter’s art provides viewers with a new set of lenses through which to see, grasp, and, ultimately, comprehend. In Potter’s words: “While looking for patterns of movement, I found the murmuration of starlings and a peloton of racing bikers to have similar flocking patterns. It is this pattern of energy that each table maps. The movement is from three dimensions to multi-dimensions.” Taking this phenomenon as the central metaphor, Potter infuses these works with a vacillation between inner and outer worlds—micro to macro—a mental Möbius. Her fascination with time, maps, and illusion put her in camp with Borges, Calvino, and other fabulists, but her quarry is human perception itself. Curated by Mark Sloan, director and chief curator of the Halsey Institute, the exhibition will also feature a video about the artist and a 120-page color catalogue. The exhibition will travel for several years throughout the United States after it debuts in Charleston.

QPR, Suicide Prevention Training
11:00 AM - 1:00 PM

Main Campus - Robert Scott Small Building - (Room 250)

QPR is a simple educational program that teaches ordinary citizens how to recognize a mental health emergency and how to get a person at risk the help they need. It is also an action plan that can result in lives being saved following a CPR model. Public safety officials, first responders, law enforcement, community leaders, survivors, members of the faith community, educators, students, youth leaders, and LGBT advocates would all benefit from this general community-focused training. Mental health professionals may feel this introductory training is too basic for their needs. If you have doubts about whether or not this program is right for you, please call 953-5640 and ask for Rachael. Please note that a minimum of 6 people is requested for this event to run. If we do not meet the minimum, we will send out a cancellation notice 24 hours in advance.

Southern Jewish Identity
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Main Campus - Jewish Studies Center - (Arnold Hall)

The historic reputation of the South for the hierarchical privilege granted to large landowners in an agrarian economy would not seem to be very compatible with the tendency of Diaspora Jewry to engage in commerce. Moreover, the regional commitment to racial inequality would seem to offer only limited opportunity to a classic minority all too familiar with prejudice and discrimination. And yet the Southern Jewish experience has been far more benign and reassuring than such dichotomies might suggest. How Jews have managed over the course of roughly two centuries to flourish in a region that might seem to be inhospitable is a paradox that merits historical analysis. Stephen Whitfield holds the Max Richter Chair in American Civilization at Brandeis University, where he has taught since 1972. He holds degrees from Tulane (BA), Yale (MA) and Brandeis (PhD), and is the author of nine books, including In Search of American Jewish Culture. Whitfield serves as book review editor of the annual journal, Southern Jewish History, and has twice served as a Fulbright visiting professor at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and at the Catholic University of Leuven (Belgium). He has also taught at the Sorbonne and at the University of Munich.

Los Chapeljileños - Johnny Cash meets Violeta Parra? There’s no simple way to describe the music of John and Carmen Chasteen—an eclectic mix of North and South American folk styles, rhythmically up-beat, with strong vocal harmonies and lyrics in both English and Spanish. Some songs are old standards from Carmen’s native Colombia, some sound like down-home North Carolina, and some speak to current political issues, such as immigration.
Slavery and Freedom in Savannah
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Avery Research Center for African American History and Culture

Lecture: “Slavery and Freedom in Savannah,” Leslie Harris, PhD, Emory University, Avery Research Center, McKinley Washington Auditorium, 6 pm In 2014, Leslie M. Harris and Daina Ramey Berry, in collaboration with the Owens-Thomas House of Telfair Museums, published Slavery and Freedom in Savannah with the University of Georgia Press. This collection, which brings together thirty experts writing on the history of slavery and African Americans in Savannah and the surrounding region, is an important milestone in the ongoing efforts of the Owens-Thomas House to interpret more fully the history of slavery at the site. The Owens-Thomas House project on slavery serves as an example of how understanding slavery can expand our knowledge of historic homes. In this presentation, Leslie Harris will discuss highlights from the book, and the importance of public history projects that bring together academics, museum professionals, public historians and the general public to see familiar sites in new ways. Leslie Harris is an Associate Professor of History and African American Studies at Emory University, and is the cofounder and director of Emory's Transforming Community Project, a multi-year program designed for the entire institution to rethink and confront its own race history.

CofC Theatre: "Home on the Mornin' Train"
7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

Main Campus - Calhoun Annex - (Chapel Theatre)

The kindness of strangers amidst great danger has kept the Underground Railroad alive to this day. In this play, we see the freedom train in action as two stories unfold a hundred years apart. In 1939 as World War II begins, young Jews escaping Germany find inspiration in a book about the journey of young slaves escaping the South in 1839. Intertwined in their stories are beautiful African American and Jewish songs that speak to a legacy of hope through the ages. Their stories stand as a testament to the unimaginable courage to reach out and help no matter your color, your beliefs or your station in life. Written by Kim Hines. Directed by Laura Turner.

The Rag Race: How Jews Sewed Their Way to Success in America
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Main Campus - Jewish Studies Center - (Arnold Hall)

In this talk, and in his newly released book of the same name, Professor Adam Mendelsohn argues that the Jews who flocked to the United States during the age of mass migration were aided appreciably by their association with a particular corner of the American economy: the rag trade. From humble beginnings, Jews rode the coattails of the clothing trade from the margins of economic life to a position of unusual promise and prominence, shaping both their societal status and the clothing industry as a whole.

CofC Theatre: "Home on the Mornin' Train"
7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

Main Campus - Calhoun Annex - (Chapel Theatre)

The kindness of strangers amidst great danger has kept the Underground Railroad alive to this day. In this play, we see the freedom train in action as two stories unfold a hundred years apart. In 1939 as World War II begins, young Jews escaping Germany find inspiration in a book about the journey of young slaves escaping the South in 1839. Intertwined in their stories are beautiful African American and Jewish songs that speak to a legacy of hope through the ages. Their stories stand as a testament to the unimaginable courage to reach out and help no matter your color, your beliefs or your station in life. Written by Kim Hines. Directed by Laura Turner.

Lecture "Narrative and Social Justice"
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

Main Campus - Randolph Hall - (Alumni Memorial Hall)

The Coastal Conservation League and the Dept. of Philosophy invite all to a lecture "Narrative and Social Justice" by Prof. Sally Haslanger, Ford Professor of Philosophy & Womens and Gender Studies at MIT. Recent work on social injustice has focused on implicit bias as an important factor in explaining persistent injustice in spite of achievements on civil rights.  In this paper, I argue that implicit bias offers a familiar sort of individualistic narrative to explain injustice, but taken alone, it is inadequate.  Most importantly, such narratives miss what is morally at stake.  An adequate account of how implicit bias functions must situate it within a broader theory of social structures; changing structures is often a precondition for changing patterns of thought and action and is certainly required for durable change.  So we must learn to develop different sorts of narratives that address not only the question, "What can/should I do?" but also "What can/should we do?"

Film Screening - Sign Painters
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Main Campus - Simons Center - (Recital Hall)

We see them every day without a second thought. Weathered by time with distinct characteristics shining through, hand-painted signs are a product of a fascinating 150-year-old American history. What was once a common job has become a highly specialized trade and a unique craft struggling with technological advances. Sign Painters explores this unacknowledged art form through anecdotal accounts from artists across the country including Ira Coyne, Bob Dewhurst, Keith Knecht, Norma Jeane Maloney, and Stephen Powers. These vanguards of unseen originality are leading a renaissance with a keen creative purpose that exemplifies the working-class American success story. Sign Painters celebrates those keeping the tradition intact with an approach and an appreciation for balance between art and commerce.

No Joke: Making Jewish Humor
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Main Campus - Jewish Studies Center - (Arnold Hall)

Humor is the most celebrated of all Jewish responses to modernity. In this lecture, as in her book of the same title, Ruth Wisse evokes and applauds the genius of spontaneous Jewish joking—as well as the brilliance of comic masterworks by writers like Heinrich Heine, Sholem Aleichem, Isaac Babel, S. Y. Agnon, Isaac Bashevis Singer, and Philip Roth. At the same time, Wisse draws attention to the precarious conditions that call Jewish humor into being—and the price it may exact from its practitioners and audience. Ruth R. Wisse is the recently retired Martin Peretz Professor of Yiddish Literature and professor of comparative literature at Harvard University. She is the author of The Modern Jewish Canon: A Journey through Language and Culture, which won a National Jewish Book Award. Her other books include Jews and Power (Schocken) and The Schlemiel as Modern Hero. Wisse earned her PhD from McGill University in 1969 and has taught at McGill, Stanford, NYU, the Hebrew University, and Tel Aviv University.

Brown Bag: From Vladimir to Vladimir
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Main Campus - Jewish Studies Center - (Arnold Hall)

Dr. Norman Pereira will focus on the three most important political figures spanning the period 1917-2015 in Russian history. During all three eras Jews played prominent roles in virtually every aspect of social life. Despite official and popular anti-Semitism, the contribution of Jews to Russian culture and civilization has been and continues to be vastly disproportionate to their numbers in the general population. This seminar series attempts to provide context for their impact and roles. January 28 – Lenin’s Geo-Political and Ideological Legacy February 25 – Stalin as the Relentless Architect of Soviet Communism March 25 – Putin’s Agenda and the Crisis in Ukraine Norman Pereira (Ph.D. University of California, Berkley) came to Dalhousie in 1974, where he founded the Intensive Russian Program. His research interests and publications have spanned much of the late Imperial and Soviet periods, with an emphasis upon intellectual and political history.

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.

“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.

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.

Art Exhibit: Herb Parker/Joseph Burwell
11:00 AM - 4:00 PM

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

Herb Parker: Studio Practice and Joseph Burwell: School of the Viking Spaniard Revisited
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.
