  • Mined to Death: A Video Screening and Talk with Dr. Regina Harrison
    Feb 16, 2016 @ 3:30 PM - Feb 16, 2016 @ 4:45 PM

    Working at an elevation of 16,000 feet, Quechua-speaking miners in Potosi, Bolivia, dig out zinc, tin, and silver much like their Incan ancestors did more than five centuries ago. This poignant video documentary explores the lives and work of the miners. A few miners who have escaped the hard labor of the mines now return to the shafts --guiding tourists. Harrison's filmed interviews with European and American tourists reveal their conflicted emotions after witnessing these harsh conditions. As viewers, we are led to question our own participation as tourists as we travel in search of authentic experiences.

  • Making Sense of Syria
    Mar 29, 2016 @ 2:00 PM - Mar 29, 2016 @ 3:15 PM

    Syria is one of the great tragedies of our time. More than a quarter of a million people are dead and more than 11 million are refugees, 4 million of them out-side the country. Terror from the region has spread worldwide. What caused this crisis? What can be done about it? And what are the prospects for peace and justice? Join us as we present two leading experts, Samer Abboud and Robin Yassin-Kassab, who will try to address these vexing questions. This event is sponsored by The Gandhian Forum for Peace and Justice and  the College of Humanities and Social Sciences is one of the co-sponsors.
