Selma: Forgetting the Future

Wednesday, March 4, 2015 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Law Common

Western New England University School of Law along with the Institute for Legislative and Governmental Affairs will host a presentation by Department of History Professor John Baick. Dr. Baick's talk is titled "Selma: Forgetting the Future." The commemoration of the Selma, Alabama voting right marches has already begun with the 50th anniversary approaching quickly. The film Selma has been a part of this process, as will countless news stories and civics lessons throughout America. But commemoration is not the same thing as history. One studies the past to understand the present and anticipate, or even shape, the future. Selma is just one example of how we are forgetting our future. Please join Dr. Baick for this important discussion about the history of Selma and its relevance to the present and the future. The event is Free and Open to the Public. Pizza will be served.

A 'Home' Away from Home? Surrogate Family between Immigrant Service Workers and Their Native-born Customers

Thursday, March 5, 2015 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM
D'Amour Library, Room 319

The LUXTON LECTURE SERIES presents: "A 'Home' Away from Home? Surrogate Family between Immigrant Service Workers and Their Native-born Customers" Dr. Elizabeth Miller (Westchester Community College, SUNY) Tribeca, a neighborhood in New York City, is home mainly to wealthy, white, and native-born people, while most of the personal service workers, such as nannies, restaurant workers, and parking attendants, are immigrants. This talk explores the unexpected relationships that develop between immigrants and natives in Tribeca. While we might assume their relations to be characterized by neutral, apathetic, or even hostile feelings, local history, culture, and social structure create a sense of community between immigrant workers and residents. This leads many immigrants to feel as though they belong in the neighborhood, many of whom refer to it as their home and their clients and customers as family. This program is sponsored by the Department of Criminal Justice and Sociology and D'Amour Library.
