  • Schisms in Society Spring 2024, Tuesdays, 9:30-11:00 a.m. at Norris University Center

    Schisms in Society given by multiple departments Throughout human history, societies across the globe have been fragmented by strident rifts that result in long-standing religious, political, and socioeconomic consequences. Some of these conflicts derive from ideological differences, some are territorial, and other schisms are frequently based on cultural, ethnic, or racial grounds. 
  • European Unification and the Question of Sovereignty Spring 2024, Tuesdays 1:00-2:30 p.m. at Norris University Center

    Michael Loriaux, Professor, Political Science, offers that the European Union is the most ambitious and successful experiment in international peace-making in history. At the core of that experiment is the commitment to push back on sovereignty claims as advanced in the name of the state and in the name of leaders of the state. 
  • The History of anti-Semitism Spring 2024, Thursdays, 9:30 -11:00 a.m. at Norris University Center

    David Shyovitz, Associate Professor, History, Director, Crown Family Center for Jewish and Israel Studies In modern political discourse, “anti-Semitism” is frequently invoked and infrequently defined. The imprecision with which the term is deployed leads to broad disagreements about the nature and scope of the phenomenon. 
  • Pinocchio to Pokémon - The History of Children's Media Spring 2024, Thursdays, 1:00-2:30 p.m. at Norris University Center

    Jacob Smith, Professor, Radio-Television-Film Director, MA in Sound Arts and Industries When we consider the subject of children’s media culture, we quickly discern a host of contradictory behaviors and attitudes: childhood is seen as a period of timeless wonder, but children are bombarded with all the latest fads and gadgets; we try to insulate children from the adult world, but provide them with media technologies that allow them easy access to it.
