    Art Study Center Seminar at Home--Mexico: Prints and Revolution, 1910–45

    11:00am to 11:45am

    Location: 

    Online Event

    In the early 20th century, Mexican artists embraced printmaking as a means of reaching a broader audience, creating works that expressed the sociopolitical concerns central to the nation’s 1910–20 revolution and its aftermath. In this seminar, curator Mary Schneider Enriquez will explore the topic through a range of works—from José-Guadalupe Posada’s broadsheets and the iconic, post-revolution images by muralists David Alfaro Siqueiros, José Clemente Orozco, and Diego Rivera, to the politically charged works of Leopoldo Méndez and the print collective Taller de Gráfica Popular.

    Location: 

    Gutman Conference Center, Gutman Library, Harvard Graduate School of Education, 6 Appian Way, Cambridge

    For young African American children growing up in poverty, access to social and educational opportunities can be impeded by the interaction between educational assessments, poverty, and dialectal variation. Dr. Washington's research has demonstrated that the growth of literacy skills, both reading and writing, are impacted in major ways. Washington will discuss how current educational policy combined with the impact of these sociocultural variables has influenced both research and practice.

    Following the lecture will be an award presentation of the Jeanne S. Chall Doctoral Student...

    Longfellow Hall, 13 Appian Way, Cambridge

    Writer and sociologist Eve L. Ewing creates work in multiple genres and forms: academic writing and scholarship, teaching, cultural organizing, poetry, comic books, and fiction. But one thing that unites all of her works is the underlying thread of black feminism.

    In this Askwith Forum, Ewing and her former doctoral advisor, Sara Lawrence-Lightfoot, discuss the influence of black feminist ideas on Ewing’s work in multiple arenas and consider the ways all of us might learn, grow, care for ourselves and each other, and challenge systems of power through the radical potential of...

    Conference: Unsettled Citizens

    9:00am

    Location: 

    Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, Knafel Center, 10 Garden Street, Cambridge

    Populism, global crisis, and modernity have rendered citizenship an ever-more fluid and troubled concept. This conference will explore all of these themes. In the first panel, we will debate the concept of economic citizenship, asking to what extent citizenship can be bought, constituted, or even lost by means of variation in wealth. In a second panel on citizenship and its gatekeepers, our discussion will explore how states, tribes, and other communities regulate belonging. And in the third panel, we will examine how migration and cross-border identity challenge the concept of...

    Location: 

    Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, Knafel Center, 10 Garden Street, Cambridge, MA 02138

    The year 2018 will be remembered for its surge in women's candidacies. Whether through individual, high-profile victories or the sheer force of hundreds upon hundreds of women standing for office, the midterm electoral cycle reflected options at the local, state, and national levels that were starkly different from any that Americans have confronted before at the ballot box. This panel will offer an analysis of the election results through a diverse set of perspectives—academic, experiential, gendered, generational, geographic, and political—to enhance our understanding of...

    Jan Boelen, “Design as Learning”

    6:30pm to 8:00pm

    Location: 

    Gund Hall, Piper Auditorium 105, 48 Quincy Street, Cambridge, MA 02138

    Why do design? What is it for? These are forward-looking questions for a creative discipline that seems more slippery to define than ever. In a world of dwindling natural resources, exhausted social and political systems, and an overload of information there are many urgent reasons to reimagine the design discipline, and there is a growing need to look at design education. Learning and unlearning should become part of an on-going educational practice. We need new proposals for how to organize society, how to structure our governments, how to...
