The Historian in the Museum
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Main Campus - Jewish Studies Center - (Arnold Hall)

In this lecture, Antony Polonsky, Chief Historian of the Museum of the History of Polish Jews, will examine the problems faced by historians in attempting to present their understanding of the past in a museum exhibition. While historians work with language and try to reach conclusions based on documents, museum displays are made up of images and objects which often require elucidation. A clear picture has to be drawn and there is no place for the qualifications which are characteristic of historical writing. The lecture will attempt to show how modern scholarship on the history and culture of the Jews of Poland is reflected in the permanent exhibition in the newly opened Warsaw museum. A native of Johannesburg, South Africa, Antony Polonsky graduated from the University of the Witwatersrand before receiving further degrees from Oxford University. He joined the faculty of Brandeis University in 1992. In 1999 he was appointed Albert Abramson Professor of Holocaust Studies, an appointment held jointly at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and Brandeis University. Most recently, Polonsky was named Chief Historian of the Permanent Exhibition at the Museum of Polish Jews in Warsaw, Poland.

"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.

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.

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.

"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.

Why We Laugh: Great Black Comedians


Avery Research Center for African American History and Culture

Film Screening, Performance, and Discussion: “Why We Laugh: Great Black Comedians,” Darryl Littleton, Author and Comedian, Avery Research Center, McKinley Washington Auditorium, 6 pm Darryl Littleton is the author of Why We Laugh: Black Comedians on Black Comedy (2008), a sweeping account of the evolution of black comedy in America. He began his comedy career writing sketches for “The Tom Joyner Morning Show” on CBS Radio, became a regular at the “Comedy Store,” and adopted the stage name, “D’Militant” for his incisive social and political commentary. In 2009, producer and writer Quincy Newell and director Robert Townsend crafted a documentary based on Littleton’s book that included interviews with prominent scholars, politicians, cultural critics, and a host of notable comics, including Bill Cosby, Chris Rock, Katt Williams, D.L. Hughley, and Steve Harvey. Why We Laugh tracks the way black comedy has evolved from Stepin Fetchit and minstrels in blackface to the politically tinged humor of Dick Georgory; and from the television success of Good Times and The Jeffersons to the big-screen accomplishments of stars like Eddie Murphy and Whoopi Goldberg. This presentation features a screening of Why We Laugh, followed by a performance and Q&A with author, comedian, and executive producer Darryl Littleton.

Holocaust Legacy
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Main Campus - Jewish Studies Center - (Arnold Hall)

In 2015 we mark 70 years since the end of World War II, while also marking 25 years since the fall of communism in Europe. Despite the passage of time, the impact of the Holocaust still resounds in Europe in many ways. But there are also new Jewish realities; new forms of Jewishness, Jewish practice, and religious and cultural expression. A generation after the fall of communism, the Jewish revival in Eastern-Central Europe has become a Jewish presence that means much more than just the numbers of Jews who live there. American author, journalist, and the current Norman and Gerry Sue Arnold Distinguished Visiting Chair, Ruth Ellen Gruber has chronicled Jewish developments in Europe for more than 25 years. Her books include Virtually Jewish: Reinventing Jewish Culture in Europe; National Geographic Jewish Heritage Travel: A Guide to Eastern Europe; Letters from Europe (and Elsewhere), and Upon the Doorposts of Thy House: Jewish Life in East-Central Europe, Yesterday and Today. The recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship, Poland’s Knight’s Cross of the Order of Merit and other awards and honors, she currently coordinates the web site www.jewish-heritage-europe.eu

The College of Charleston’s Office of Multicultural Student Programs and Services (MSPS) will present “We the People” – an evening of spirituals and gospel music on Sunday, February 8th at 5:00 p.m. at the Sottile Theatre. The program will feature the Claflin University Concert Choir led by Dr. Isaiah McGee and will also highlight vignettes about the African-American experience as chronicled by locally recognized actor, Henry Clay Middleton. Admission is $15 for general public and $8 for CofC students with a valid Cougar Card. The program is part of the College of Charleston’s Black History Month activities with proceeds benefiting student scholarships for minority students. “Due to the recent unrest in many of our major cities because of tensions between citizens and police officers, I felt it would be very timely for the College of Charleston to provide a historical background of peaceful protests launched by blacks in this country,” said Dr. Teresa Smith, director of the Office of MSPS. Mr. Middleton’s vignettes will cover seven themes: 1) We the people, 2) Africa, 3) This land is not my land, 4) The end of oppression, 5) the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s-1960s, 6) education of blacks in the United States and 7) racial equality in the 21st century. Also performing will be Lowcountry Voices (LV), a multicultural and ethnically diverse choral organization that performs standard choral repertoire with special emphasis on African-American musical traditions. LV is directed by Nathan L. Nelson, and Sandra Barnhardt. Ms. Hydeia Wade, a junior public health major, will also direct the College of Charleston’s Gospel Choir in a few selections during the program. Student tickets can be purchased tickets in the Multicultural Center. General public Tickets can be purchased online at msps.cofc.edu

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.

Digital Portfolios are a great way to showcase your experience, work and research interests while in school. Digital portfolios with integrated social media tools can also connect you with other scholars, keep you apprised of current news and events in your field, and help you to be part of a community of practice in your discipline. Creating and maintaining your digital portfolio will help you build and demonstrate your skills with digital tools and can supplement your employment searches after graduation. Common elements included in digital portfolios are your resumé, professional experience, internships and service activities, scholarly and digital projects that you have created, and organization memberships. In this hands-on workshop we will explore WordPress.com, a free blogging platform for building your personal web presence that integrates with common social media applications that support multimedia web publishing. You will have the opportunity to develop your own personal digital portfolio basic framework and structure using WordPress with the help of the instructor and feedback from other students. You will also be provided with information on creating and managing your professional online presence. Computers will be provided for the workshop, however if you have a laptop please feel free to bring it. If you are using your personal laptop, you will need to configure it for campus wireless prior to the session (for more information on campus wireless setup visit http://wireless.cofc.edu).

Avery Brown Bag: Baseball Dreams Deferred: The Story of the 1955 Cannon Street Y.M.C.A.
12:00 PM - 1:30 PM

Avery Research Center for African American History and Culture

In this presentation, Ramon Jackson will share the story of the 1955 Cannon Street Y.M.C.A. All-Stars, an African American baseball team from Charleston, South Carolina. Once described by former Little League president and C.E.O. Dr. Creighton Hale as the “most significant amateur team in baseball history,” the All-Stars were key figures in an adult-led, direct action campaign to desegregate Little League Baseball in the American South. Nearly fifteen months after the Supreme Court ruled in Brown v. Board of Education (1954) that segregated schools were unconstitutional, the Cannon Street Y.M.C.A. president Robert Francis Morrison entered the team into the “whites only” Charleston Little League tournament. In a show of “massive resistance,” white Little League officials, coaches, and parents gradually organized a mass boycott. Though they were ultimately denied the opportunity to compete in the LLWS, the All-Stars were invited to attend the final game as guests of Little League president Peter J. McGovern. The following year, teams in seven southern states seceded from Little League and formed “Little Boys Baseball, Incorporated,” a segregated youth baseball organization that later became known as Dixie Youth Baseball. This “Civil War” within youth baseball, sparked by the Cannon Street effort, was a powerful moment in the African American freedom struggle in South Carolina and the nation.

Three Rabbi Panel: Jewish Educatuib
7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Main Campus - Stern Student Center - (Ballroom)

It is written (Talmud Shabbat) that Jerusalem was destroyed just because schoolchildren were kept from their classrooms. That is the rabbinic way of highlighting the importance of Jewish education. Indeed, the future of our Jewish community, and others world-wide, lies in the proper Jewish education of our children. But where and how should that education take place? Do we integrate our students within a public school setting, or do we separate them amongst Jewish peers at private day schools? As parents, educators, and concerned members of the Jewish community of Charleston, these are the difficult questions we must ask ourselves. The factors at play in making such a decision are diverse. Cost can be prohibitive if borne by the parents. Some parents fear becoming distanced from their child in observance, education, and interests. And to many, public education is quintessentially American, so an important part of American Jewish identity. On the other hand, day school educations allow kids to grow up with deep connections to ritual, holidays, culture, and community, with Jewish literacy, Jewish identity, and comfort in Jewish situations. Join us as Rabbis Stephanie Alexander (KKBE), Adam Rosenbaum (Emanu-El), and Michael Davies (Dor Tikvah) reflect on the views of their respective denominations towards Jewish education, as well as the approaches of their congregations. We will honor Charlot and the late Stanley Karesh with a reception in recognition of their generous gift to Jewish Studies.

The South Carolina Roots of African American Thought: A Reader


Avery Research Center for African American History and Culture

Panel Presentation: “The South Carolina Roots of African American Thought: A Reader,” Rhondda Robinson Thomas, PhD, and Susanna Ashton, PhD, Clemson University, Avery Research Center, McKinley Washington Auditorium, 6 pm Co-sponsored by the Avery Research Center, the Department of History, and the Department of English at the College of Charleston In this presentation, Rhondda Robinson Thomas and Susanna Ashton will discuss their recent publication, The South Carolina Roots of African American Thought: A Reader (2014). This collection seeks to remedy the singularly narrow way in which South Carolina's intellectual character has been defined in the popular imagination. Through this anthology, editors Thomas and Ashton have brought together writings that reveal a tradition of national prominence and influence with black intellectuals, educators, journalists, and policy analysts from South Carolina. These native and adopted citizens mined their experiences to shape thinking about the state and the nation. Francis Grimké, Daniel Payne, Mary McLeod Bethune, Kelly Miller, Septima Clark, Benjamin Mays, Marian Wright Edelman, Jesse Jackson, and others have changed this nation for the better with their questions, challenges, and persistence—all in the proudest South Carolinian tradition. Rhondda Robinson Thomas is an Associate Professor of African American Literature and Susanna Ashton is a Professor of American Literature in the Department of English at Clemson University.

Shakespeare Project - Hamlet
7:30 PM - 10:00 PM

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."

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.

Reading Hebrew

Main Campus - Jewish Studies Center - (Levin Library)

Reading Hebrew is an informal, weekly course teaching students how to read Hebrew. It is aimed at beginners and those who have rusty skills and are interested in developing more skills. The focus is reading, not language comprehension. This is a beginning class and no previous knowledge is required. Participants are requested to attend all class meetings. Registration is not required. The course is free of charge and open to the entire community. It cannot be taken for college credit. There will be a small charge for the text used in each class. The sessions are weekly 75-minute classes, taught by native Hebrew speaker Shula Holtz, who has been teaching the class since its inception with a great deal of success.

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.

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.
