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.

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.

You’re So Money: Literary and Economic Seductions
2:00 PM - 2:50 PM

Main Campus - Tate Center

Sarah Skwire, a Fellow at Liberty Fund and author of the college writing textbook “Writing with a Thesis,” will discuss Shakespeare’s poetry through the prism of modern economics, exchange, and commerce. Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice has led many to believe that the early modern world had an unrelievedly negative view of money-lending and an unsophisticated view of economics. But The Merchant of Venice is only part of the story about Shakespeare's views on exchange and commerce. Reading his love sonnets and putting them into the context of other early modern seduction poems shows us a much more complicated--and even enthusiastically positive-- image of early modern thinking about economics. Through erotic punning and wordplay, Shakespeare and his contemporaries invite us into a world where pleasure is profit and profit is a pleasure. The event will be held at 2pm in the Tate Center (315)

Film Screening - WATERMARK
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Off Campus - Charleston Music Hall

"Watermark" is a feature documentary from multiple-award winning filmmakers Jennifer Baichwal and Nick de Pencier, and renowned photographer Edward Burtynsky. The film brings together diverse stories from around the globe examining our relationship with water: how we are drawn to it, what we learn from it, how we use it and the consequences of that use. "Watermark" documents massive floating abalone farms off China’s Fujian coast and the construction site of the biggest arch dam in the world – the Xiluodu, six times the size of the Hoover Dam. We visit the barren desert delta where the mighty Colorado River no longer reaches the ocean, and the water-intensive leather tanneries of Dhaka. We speak with scientists who drill ice cores two kilometers deep into the Greenland Ice Sheet, and explore the sublime pristine watershed of Northern British Columbia. Shot in stunning ultra high-definition video and full of soaring aerial perspectives, this film shows water as a terraforming element, as well as the magnitude of our need and use. In "Watermark", the viewer is immersed in a magnificent force of nature that we all too often take for granted - until it’s gone.

Can our courses be academically rigorous and still very enjoyable for our students? Of course!

This session will enhance your ability to better recognize and attend to our students’ needs for security, trust and confidence in the classroom. Learn more about how Conseula Francis (English /African American Studies) makes this and related dynamics central to her teaching philosophy, and gain insights to develop your own approach to student-professor interpersonal relationships.

Remembering the Ninth of November
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Main Campus - Jewish Studies Center - (Arnold Hall)

November 9, 1989 was the momentous day in recent German history– the Berlin Wall fell, the Cold War ended, and Germany was to be reunited within one year. Nevertheless, when Chancellor Helmut Kohl looked for a date to formally consummate unification, he categorically ruled out Nov 9 as that date– for it is also the date of “Reichskristallnacht”, the pogrom foreshadowing the Shoah. November 9 is also the date when Kaiser Wilhelm was deposed in 1918 and the first German republic proclaimed, and this date also stands for the defeat of the German revolutionaries who tried to found a liberal democracy in 1848. Consul General Sander will address the shortcomings and horrors of Germany’s past, before commenting on the 25 years since the fall of the Wall. What is Germany’s responsibility and what are the challenges facing Germany today? Christoph Sander lives in Atlanta where he took office as Consul General of Germany in 2012. Previously, Mr. Sander was involved with many international positions including Deputy Head of Mission and Head of Economic Section at the German Embassy in Caracas, Venezuela (2009- 2012), Deputy Head of Mission and Head of the Political Section at the German Embassy in Islamabad, Pakistan (2003-2006), Head of the Economic Section at the German Embassy in Budapest, Hungary (1999-2003), and Consul at the German Embassy in New Delhi, India (1986 1989). A native of Düsseldorf, Consul General Sander earned a law degree from the University of Hannover.

Main Campus - Stern Student Center - (Ballroom)

Free for CofC students, staff, faculty, and general public. Retired Staff Sergeant Eric Alva was the first American soldier injured in the Iraq War. Hailed as an American hero, Alva was decorated and visited by Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, Vice President Dick Cheney, and President George W. Bush. However, he was only able to be true to himself after he left the military, and upon his retirement came out as a gay man. Today, Alva is a gay rights activist and spokesperson for the Human Rights Campaign, where he speaks about LGBT issues and the military. He also played an important role in helping repeal the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy, working with members of Congress to put an end to the discriminatory practice. Not only is Alva a truly heroic man, but through his powerful message of hope and confidence he is making the world a better place for all those who have felt the pains of discrimination and hate. His service has earned him multiple honors and awards, including the 2011 Elizabeth Birch Equality Award, named for the former executive director of the Human Rights Campaign.

Known to many simply as “the Rebbe,” Rabbi Menachem M.

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.

Are you looking for support to move yourself from a position of blame or shame to one of solidarity and action? This dialogue is intended to strengthen our campus community through cross-cultural, creative strategies for eradicating gender inequity in its many forms.

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.
Brown Bag: Contemporary World Jewry
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Main Campus - Jewish Studies Center - (Arnold Hall)

As the American Jewish community continues to change and adapt to modern trends, most recently exhibited in the 2013 Pew Research Portrait of Jewish Americans, so too have Jewish communities around the world experienced significant transformations in demographic and communal identity. Join three of Jewish Studies’ professors as they explore the issues and subsequent shifts occurring in their native communities. November 19 – Tel Aviv and the Palestinian Nakba (Oren Segal) Named after Herzl’s utopian novel Altneuland, Tel Aviv became a symbol of liberal Zionism. In recent years, the concept of The First Hebrew City as a model for Jewish exclusivity is being challenged by left-wing activists and organizations. This session will introduce the growing visibility of this paradigm shift by analyzing street art and Alon Hilo’s 2010 controversial bestseller “The House of Rajani.”

How the Millennial Generation thinks about Racism and What you Can do to Help
12:10 PM - 1:40 PM

Main Campus - Stern Student Center

Stern Center 205 In an opinion poll intended to help us understand how young people feel about bias, 48 percent of white millennials (the generation name for our students) said discrimination against whites is as big a problem as discrimination against racial minorities. While this generation is demographically more diverse and appears to be more open to diversity than previous generations, they aspire to a “colorblindness” that reduces racism to different treatment based on skin color rather than exploring the complexities of structural inequality. Learn how Andrew Lewis (Education, Health and Human Performance, Associate Professor, Emeritus) helps students see the difference between race as skin color and race as a political concept that has dramatically shaped institutional access and interpersonal conflict. Are you doing all you can to help students understand the legacy and impact of historical racism? Let’s support one another in making this a teaching goal.

Building Jewish Communities for the 21st Century
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Main Campus - Jewish Studies Center - (Arnold Hall)

It is clear that we live in an era of challenge and also of great opportunity for the American Jewish community. Last year, the Pew Study demonstrated many of the ways in which the identity, needs, and interests of American Jews of today differ from those of previous generations. If Twentieth Century Jewish institutions (synagogues, JCC’s, federations, etc.) are to succeed, they will need to adapt dramatically. In this talk, we will explore what it might take to “realign” the institutional models of our contemporary Jewish community with the populations they want to serve, in order to ensure a vibrant Jewish future. Rachel Nussbaum is the Rabbi and Executive Director of the Kavana Cooperative, an independent Jewish community in Seattle, Washington, which she co-founded in 2006. She has received numerous accolades and awards for her innovative work in Seattle, and also for pushing forward a national conversation about reinvigorating the American Jewish community. She is a native of Charleston, and is excited to be returning “home” for this lecture.

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.
