School to Prison Pipeline Public Forum
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Main Campus - Beatty Center - (Wachovia Auditorium)

Across America, the schoolyard massacre of children by their classmates has led to “zero tolerance” disciplinary policies and the incorporation of School Resource Officers in our schools. But a growing body of research shows that the effect of this new discipline has cast a much wider net than originally intended. This net has trapped a disproportionate number of minority children in the criminal justice system. Many times their offenses are youthful indiscretions that had been previously handled in the principal’s office. The result is often devastating to the child, their family and to the community. Panel members: Moderator, Professor Heath Hoffman, College of Charleston Hon. Marlon E. Kimpson, SC State Senator Hon. Daniel E. Martin, Jr., Family Court Judge Susan Dunn, Esquire South Carolina ACLU Legal Director Lieutenant Kathleen Love, North Charleston Police Department Principal Eleanor Harvey, Gregg Mathis Charter High School

Staying Present in the Face of Conflict
12:00 PM - 1:30 PM

Main Campus - Stern Student Center

Stern Center 205 Violent battle fields, family disputes, opinions about Supreme Court decisions…conflicts are everywhere. Students’ anxiety or internalized conflict affecting their academic performance, as well as heated political debates that emerge in the classroom, provide opportunities for us to better understand our role in transforming conflict as part of our teaching. Are classrooms arenas of debate or spaces for healthy dialogue? Reba Parker (Recipient of the Distinguished CofC Adjunct Faculty Award, Sociology) will share lessons learned from teaching Peace Studies to Citadel cadets, FYE Sociology of Peace classes at CofC and from her fellowships at Notre Dame Faculty Peacebuilding Institute & Eastern Mennonite University Summer Peacebuilding Institute. Reba will help you clarify your pedagogical approach to identifying and transforming both the submerged and explicit conflicts present in the classroom.

But is it Good for the Jews: Southern Jews and the Civil Rights Movement
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Main Campus - Jewish Studies Center - (Arnold Hall)

American Jews were more deeply engaged in the civil rights movement than any other white group in the U.S. – in part because Jews did not in fact consider themselves to be white. But that “alliance” or “natural relationship” masked deeper divisions and tensions between the black and Jewish communities. It also masked tensions within each community, as black nationalists challenged black integrationists, and northern Jews called on Southern Jews to engage more forthrightly with the civil rights struggles in their communities. Fifty years after President Johnson signed the historic Civil Rights Act of 1964, Cheryl Greenberg will examine both the overall trajectory of the national black-Jewish “alliance,” and the relationship of Southern Jews to that alliance. Cheryl Greenberg has taught and written extensively on topics in African American history, Jewish American history, black- Jewish relations, and civil liberties and civil rights. Of particular note, she is the author of Troubling the Waters: Black-Jewish Relations in the American Century, published in 2006 by Princeton University Press. Cheryl has given talks and taught courses on three continents; she is most proud to have offered lectures on the Civil Rights Movement at a school for Tibetan girls in Beijing.

Author Virginia Beach's lecture “The Second Northern Invasion and A New Conservation Ethos”
6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Avery Research Center for African American History and Culture - Avery Research Center - (McKinley Washington Auditorium)

Local conservationist and author Virginia Beach discusses her most recent book, _Rice and Ducks: The Surprising Convergence that Saved the Carolina Lowcountry_. Ms. Beach’s book is a modern conservation story, rooted in America’s earliest colonial beginnings and in the ancient migrations of the Atlantic flyway. _Rice and Ducks_ considers the important interactions between southern plantation owners, slave descendants, northern industrialists, powerful U.S. Senators, daring scientists, dedicated game managers, media magnates, Trappist monks and Wall Street financiers. These unlikely allies recognized a need to preserve the Lowcountry’s natural bounty in the face of development and industrial growth after the Civil War and into the 20th century. An extraordinary conservation ethos emerged that would result in the permanent protection of more than 1.2 million acres along the coastal plain of South Carolina. Following Ms. Beach’s talk, join us for a book signing and view a number of stunning artifacts from local archives used in the creation of _Rice and Ducks_. Copies of _Rice and Ducks_ will be on sale the evening of the event; all proceeds go toward the conservation and restoration of migratory bird habitat.

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.

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.

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?

12th Annual Dash for Trash
9:00 AM - 1:00 PM

Off Campus

Dash for Trash is an annual event co-sponsored by the Center for Civic Engagement and Keep Charleston Beautiful. Every October, College of Charleston student teams grab a grocery cart, garbage bags and gloves and dash into downtown Charleston to participate in this annual litter-collecting scavenger hunt. Teams of students spend their Saturday morning scouring the city for cigarette butts, used batteries, old hub caps and bagged dog litter to earn the most points. The student teams that show the most spirit, collect the most recyclables and accumulate the most points overall earn bragging rights and a number of prizes provided by local sponsors.

Winner of the 2014 Kennedy Center/American College Theatre Festival (KC/ACTF) Region IV David L. Shelton Playwriting Award - Bread and Circuses is written by College of Charleston recent graduate, Edward Precht.

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.

October 15 – Melbourne, Australia (David Slucki) Melbourne is home to over four million people, with an estimated Jewish population of roughly 60,000.

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.
