“The Presentation of the Atlantic Slave Trade in U.S. and Brazilian School Textbooks,” Nafees Khan
12:00 PM - 1:30 PM

Avery Research Center for African American History and Culture

Brown Bag Series: “The Presentation of the Atlantic Slave Trade in U.S. and Brazilian School Textbooks,” Nafees M. Khan, PhD, Clemson University The Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade was the largest forced migration in human history and is critical to understanding the complexity of the history of slavery and indeed the history of the Atlantic world. This enterprise, based on racism, violence, and greed was responsible for the dispersal of millions of enslaved Africans throughout the Americas. Further, the legacies of the trade, including poverty and racism among others, have remained controversial and salient throughout many national contexts. Unfortunately, the slave trade often only receives limited coverage in either school curricula or in public memory, inhibiting students’ understanding of this centuries long episode in history. As a result, the global scale of the trade is not readily understood. In this presentation, Dr. Nafees Khan will address the problems with limiting the discussion on the slave trade in U.S. and Brazilian school textbooks, which misleads students and teachers on the patterns and scale of this global trade in humans. As one of history’s great injustices, the topic of slavery remains an enduring and controversial issue with legacies that transcend many contemporary concerns that include, but are not limited to race, class, gender, and identity.

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.
