How to Change Attitudes about LGBT Rights - Lecture by Harrison & Michelson
Time: 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM
Palamountain Hall Davis Auditorium: Professors Brian Harrison and Melissa Michelson speak about the research in their new book Listen, We Need to Talk: How to Change Attitudes about LGBT Rights (Oxford University Press, 2017). Listen, We Need to Talk tests Harrison and Michelson's Theory of Dissonant Identity Priming about how to change people's attitudes on controversial topics. They conducted randomized experiments all over the United States, many in partnership with equality organizations. They found that people are often willing to change their attitudes about LGBT rights when they find out that others with whom they share an identity (for example, as sports fans or members of a religious group) are also supporters of those rights - particularly when told about support from a leader of the group, and particularly if they find the information somewhat surprising.

Fragments
Time: 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM
Calendar Only Calendar Only : FragmentsBy Edward AlbeeDirected by Shea Leavis '17 Janet Kinghorn Bernhard Theater at Skidmore CollegeMarch 2 - 8, 2017All shows at 8:00pm, except Sunday matinee at 2:00pm The Skidmore College Department of Theater is please to announce its Spring Black Box production: Fragments. In Fragments, a group of eight people gather together and begin reading aloud a series of proverbs. These proverbs provoke those assembled to begin telling stories: stories from the past, of dreams, of identity, and those that question the most fundamental parts of existence. As the playwright Edward Albee says, “The piece proceeds as a piece of music does.” Words build, scatter, and explode in rhythm. They serve as an examination of the human search for meaning in life, and the struggle to connect to the world and to one another through storytelling. FROM THE DIRECTOR: Edward Albee was a writer who throughout his artistic life ceaselessly challenged audiences to live their lives to the fullest and meticulously examine how they behave and treat one another. As a theater artist and playwright he always provoked the limits of what could be talked about onstage and the forms in which it could be done. By discussing politics, death rituals, racial profiling, childhood nightmares, and domestic violence, Fragments is a piece that searches for significance in the strangeness of everyday life and magnifies the importance of how people struggle to communicate with one another in an increasingly fractured world. This play is being presented not necessarily to hold a mirror up to society for reflection, but to serve as a proposal for how our reality might look, sound and feel if we abandoned all assumptions about how things should be and simply took a moment to exist with one another. In Albee’s universe even the small act of sharing stories is something the human body relies on for survival and nourishment as heavily as it does the air we breathe. 0 0 1 164 936 Skidmore College 7 2 1098 14.0 Normal 0 false false false EN-US JA X-NONE Tickets: $12 general admission and $8 for students and senior citizens.

Screening of "Becoming Warren Buffett" with Teddy Kunhardt
Time: 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM
Tang Teaching Museum Somers: Becoming Warren Buffett is a co-production of HBO and Kunhardt Films; directed by Peter Kunhardt; produced by Teddy Kunhardt (Skidmore College alum) and George Kunhardt. This screening will be followed by a Q&A with Producer Teddy Kunhardt. Synopsis:With a net worth of more than $60 billion, Warren Buffett is truly a one-of-a-kind billionaire. Now 86, the legendary investor still lives in a modest home in Omaha, and continues to drive himself to the office every morning to manage Berkshire Hathaway, the fourth-largest public company in the world. But more surprising than his humble lifestyle and self-effacing personality are Buffett’s moral integrity and unique mind, which drove him not only to become the most successful businessman in the world, but also an unparalleled philanthropist.With unprecedented access to his day-to-day personal life, Becoming Warren Buffett tells the improbable story of how an ambitious, numbers-obsessed boy from Nebraska became one of the richest, most-respected men in the world. The definitive documentary on Buffett, this candid portrait sheds new light on a man who has helped shape the way Americans view capitalism and, more recently, philanthropy. Told primarily in Buffett’s own words, the film features never-before-released home videos, family photographs, archival footage and interviews with family and friends. Read more about the film at HBO.com. Film review in the New York Times.

Edwin M. Moseley Faculty Research Lecture by Pushkala Prasad
Time: 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM
Palamountain Hall Gannett Auditorium: (Ir) resistable and (Dis) reputable Empire: Racialized Capitalism and the Tainting of Brand U.S.A. The U.S.A. as a force for both good and evil is an ever-present theme on the global stage. While its identification with democracy and economic enterprise contributes immensely to its positive face, its engagement in a particular form of racialized capitalism has simultaneously tainted its global image. The lecture will explore these dual tendencies with a view to understanding the profound ambivalence that characterizes Brand U.S.A. in the world’s imagination. The annual Edwin M. Moseley Faculty Research Lecture highlights compelling, original research in scholarly and creative work, and is the highest honor the Skidmore faculty can confer upon one of their peers. Pushkala Prasad is the Arthur Zankel Chair Professor of Management and Liberal Arts at Skidmore College where she teaches in the Management & Business Department and the International Affairs Program. Before coming to Skidmore, she was on the faculty at Clarkson University, the University of Calgary and Lund University in Sweden where she held the E-on Chair Professorship in Corporate Social Responsibility. Professor Prasad has an undergraduate degree in history from the University of Madras, an MBA from Xavier Institute in Jamshedpur, India and a Ph.D in Management from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. She is a prolific scholar whose research has looked at resistance to technological change, the dynamics of workplace diversity, corporate social irresponsibility and the changing contours of global capitalism. Her work has been published in such pinnacle journals as the Academy of Management Journal, Organization Science, Research in the Sociology of Organizations, and the Journal of Management Studies. She is the author of Crafting Qualitative Research (Routledge) and co-editor of Managing the Organizational Melting Pot (Sage Publications) and the Routledge Companion to Critical Management Studies. Dr. Prasad’s research has been consistently funded by such agencies as the Alberta Energy Corporation, the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, the Swedish Quality of Worklife Foundation and the Jan Wallander Foundation of the Bank of Commerce of Sweden. At Skidmore, Pushkala Prasad teaches International Environments of Business, Diversity and Discrimination in the American Workplace and Faces and Phases of Global Capitalism. She is currently working on a book on the limits of liberalism in the context of new diversity tensions in the workplace.

Fragments
Time: 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM
Calendar Only Calendar Only : FragmentsBy Edward AlbeeDirected by Shea Leavis '17 Janet Kinghorn Bernhard Theater at Skidmore CollegeMarch 2 - 8, 2017All shows at 8:00pm, except Sunday matinee at 2:00pm The Skidmore College Department of Theater is please to announce its Spring Black Box production: Fragments. In Fragments, a group of eight people gather together and begin reading aloud a series of proverbs. These proverbs provoke those assembled to begin telling stories: stories from the past, of dreams, of identity, and those that question the most fundamental parts of existence. As the playwright Edward Albee says, “The piece proceeds as a piece of music does.” Words build, scatter, and explode in rhythm. They serve as an examination of the human search for meaning in life, and the struggle to connect to the world and to one another through storytelling. FROM THE DIRECTOR: Edward Albee was a writer who throughout his artistic life ceaselessly challenged audiences to live their lives to the fullest and meticulously examine how they behave and treat one another. As a theater artist and playwright he always provoked the limits of what could be talked about onstage and the forms in which it could be done. By discussing politics, death rituals, racial profiling, childhood nightmares, and domestic violence, Fragments is a piece that searches for significance in the strangeness of everyday life and magnifies the importance of how people struggle to communicate with one another in an increasingly fractured world. This play is being presented not necessarily to hold a mirror up to society for reflection, but to serve as a proposal for how our reality might look, sound and feel if we abandoned all assumptions about how things should be and simply took a moment to exist with one another. In Albee’s universe even the small act of sharing stories is something the human body relies on for survival and nourishment as heavily as it does the air we breathe. 0 0 1 164 936 Skidmore College 7 2 1098 14.0 Normal 0 false false false EN-US JA X-NONE Tickets: $12 general admission and $8 for students and senior citizens.

After receiving her law degree from University of California , Berkeley in 1979, Fania practiced almost 27 years as a civil rights trial lawyer.During the mid 1990’s, she entered a Ph.D. program in indigenous studies at the California Institute of Integral Studies, and apprenticed with traditional healers around the globe, particularly in Africa . Since receiving her Ph.D. in 2003, Fania has been engaged in a search for healing alternatives to adversarial justice. She has taught Restorative Justice at San Francisco ‘s New College Law School and Indigenous Peacemaking at Eastern Mennonite University ‘s Center for Justice and Peacebuilding. She writes and speaks on these subjects.The search for a healing justice also led Fania to bring restorative justice to Oakland.

Demands and Dialogue: Re-engaging African Objects and Communities at the Royal Ontario Museum
Time: 6:00 PM to 9:30 PM
Palamountain Hall Davis Auditorium: Demands and Dialogue: Re-engaging African Objects and Communities at the Royal Ontario MuseumSpeaker: Dr. Silvia Forni Dr. Silvia Forni is Curator of Anthropology in the ROM's Department of World Cultures. She is the curator of the African collection, and responsible for the permanent and rotating display of African artworks in the Shreyas and Mina Ajmera Gallery of Africa, the Americas and the Asia Pacific. She is also Assistant Professor of Anthropology at the University of Toronto, where she teachers Anthropology of Material Culture, Ethnography of Africa and Anthropology of Art. Since joining the ROM in 2008, she curated the partial gallery reinstallation and has worked on a number of exhibition projects focusing on African and African Canadian themes. Her research focuses on the significance of art objects and material culture in both local contexts and as part pf exchange networks. She is interested in the tensions, dynamics, and feedback that inspire the contemporary creators in Africa and the way art challenges the way Africa has been constructed in the Western imagination. In Cameroon, Dr. Forni has been researching the production and marketing of "traditional" African artworks produced since the second half of the 20th century and focusing on the important role of African dealers in the international trade of African art and their contributions to the shaping of collections and knowledge. In Ghana, she has been investigating the production, meaning, performance and circulation of the insignia of the Asafo companies of the Fante people. This lecture will focus on the contentious history surrounding the exhibition, "Into the Heart of Africa", a moment that polarized Canadian communities when it debuted in 1989. Just recently, the museum formally apologized for the anti-African racisim the exhibition brought to its community. Dr. Forni will discuss the role of museum curators in negotiating between art objects, difficult histories and modern publics.

But commas often confuse us; they can serve so many functions and turn up in so many different places. How can we tell which function applies in a given sense? Where, oh where, might a comma go? Sometimes a comma is required, and sometimes it may be optional. How do we distinguish the required from the optional?This workshop aims to make commas our allies in the search for precision and meaning.
