Jean Sibelius Sesquicentennial: Film, Music and Conversation

Thursday, April 2, 2015 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM
D'Amour Library, Room 319

"Jean Sibelius Sesquicentennial: Film, Music and Conversation" Presented by Jack Brin, former Professor of Mathematics at Western New England University. This film biography looks at this internationally famous composer's life and music from birth, through his musical evolution and death in 1957. The film also references the Kalevala, a collection of runes about Finnish Viking mythology. Near the end of the century the spirit of nationalism overtook Finland, as well as many other European countries. The Kalevala was the primary work of Finnish literature, and a major source of nationalism in music and art. This program should have great appeal to anyone interested in any of the arts, music, or literature. This program is sponsored by the Department of Arts and Humanities and D'Amour Library.

From the Classroom to the Courthouse, Bringing Human Rights Home to the U.S.

Friday, April 17, 2015 12:15 PM - 1:00 PM
Law Common

Clason Speaker Series Margaret Huang, the Chief of Staff and Deputy Executive Director, Campaigns and Programs for Amnesty International USA will present. Huang will explore the growth and increasing sophistication of the domestic human rights movement in the U.S. over the last decade, including understanding its focus on the school to prison pipeline, the problems of racial profiling and mass incarceration, and the recent grassroots mobilization around police accountability. From Ferguson to Staten Island, from Madison to Cleveland, the individual stories of young black men shot by law enforcement have galvanized youth and other activists in a pivotal moment to demand change. Human rights activism is needed to help bridge between grassroots organizing efforts and legal advocacy for state and federal reforms. Lunch will be provided.
