Hispanic-Latino Heritage Month event: "The Trouble With My Name" with Javier Avila

Javier Ávila from San Juan, Puerto Rico, is on tour with “The Trouble with My Name,” a one-man show that explores the American Latino experience.

Ávila is the recipient of the Instituto de Cultura Puertorriqueña Poetry Award, the Pen Club Book of the Year Award and the Olga Nolla Poetry Award—twice. His bestselling novel, “Different,” earned him critical acclaim and was made into a movie, “Miente.” Two of his other novels, “The Professor in Ruins” and the controversial “La profesión más antigua (The Oldest Profession)” explore Puerto Rico’s academic underworld.

“Criatura del olvido (Creature of Oblivion)” was awarded another PEN Club Poetry Award in 2008. That same year, Ávila was honored with the prestigious Outstanding Latino Cultural Arts, Literary Arts and Publications Award given by the American Association of Hispanics in Higher Education. His dual-language anthology “Vapor” brings together poems from his four award-winning books.

Ávila, who teaches literature and writing at Northampton Community College, received the 2015 Pennsylvania Professor of the Year Award by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching and the Council for Advancement and Support of Education. He is the first Latino to receive this honor. He received the 2016 Hispanic Leader of the Year Award by the Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce.

Film Viewing and Q&A With Director Aaron Davidman: "Wrestling Jerusalem"

Tonight we'll screen the amazing film "Wrestling Jerusalem," and chat with director Aaron Davidman about its creation.

In a tour-de-force performance, writer-actor Aaron Davidman conjures a host of different characters while seeking answers to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in WRESTLING JERUSALEM. Creatively adapting his acclaimed one-man stage show using only simple props and backdrops, Davidman takes a multidimensional journey into the heart of the Middle East, and the intersection of politics, identity and spiritual yearning. He embodies and gives voice to 17 different characters on all sides of the existential divide–deftly moving between male and female, Jewish and Muslim, Israeli and Arab–modeling what it takes truly to bear witness through the eyes of the other. Challenging long-held beliefs with sharp and unblinking observation, Davidman finds both entrenched isolation and shared humanity in the shifting moral compasses and competing narratives of all his characters. Filmmaker Dylan Kussman moves freely and seamlessly among three locations–a live theater audience, the open expanse of a vast desert, and a small dressing room–exploiting the interplay of theatrical spontaneity, cinematic poetry, and spiritual intimacy. The result is a unique hybrid of stage and cinema that reignites hope for the future of this troubled region.

"Making the Nice a Bit Nicer: Management, Engagement and Contribution in the Non-Profit World" w/ artist Sean P. Carney

Perhaps no other sector of community engagement is as challenging -- or rewarding -- as the arts non-profit world. Artist and activist Sean J. Patrick Carney discusses the origins, inner workings, successes and failures of The Bruce High Quality Foundation University (BHQFU), a tuition-free, artist run school based in Brooklyn, NY.

BHQFU operates dozens of free classes engaging myriad critical and studio concerns each year which are entirely open to the public. In addition, it hosts cost-free studio residencies for select artists, allowing them the time and space to create new work without having to accrue student debt. Upon its launch in 2009, New York Times senior art critic Roberta Smith wrote that "it strikes a blow where one is seriously needed." BHQFU offers year-round public programs including performances, screenings, an annual book fair, and an exhibitions program through its gallery, FUG (Foundation University Gallery). Recent FUG exhibitions include a survey of works by the late Los Angeles-based painter and founder of the Underground Museum, Noah Davis; a solo exhibition of new work by artist Betty Tompkins; and an interactive, pedagogical exhibition and event series by Guerrilla Girls BroadBand. 

Sean J Patrick Carney (b. 1982, Michigan) is a visual artist, comedian, writer and educator based in Brooklyn, NY. He is the founder and director of the independent press Social Malpractice Publishing which has produced over 50 artist books and editions since 2009.

2017 Peace Fellow Lecture -- Celia Cook-Huffman presents "Why Identity Matters"

Elizabethtown College Peace Fellowship presents the 2017 Peace Fellow Lecture with Celia Cook-Huffman, an educator, training consultant and professor of peace and conflict studies at Juniata College where she holds the W. Clay and Kathryn Burkholder Professorship in Conflict Resolution.

Identity matters in conflict.  It is an essential organizing tool for engaging and building movements for social change. At the same time, identity can be the marker by which in-groups and out-groups justify exclusion, violence and genocide. By looking at how identities are shaped and constructed, we can better understand the ways we can engage identity as part of achieving social justice.

Cook-Huffman also is the associate director of the Baker Institute for Peace and Conflict Studies and director of Baker Mediation Services. Her background combines peace studies with specialized training and education in conflict transformation, nonviolence, gender and mediation.

Her teaching focuses on understanding conflict dynamics in interpersonal, organizational, inter-group and international contexts; the critical exploration of the role of conflict in the human community; seeking to understand when and how conflicts are necessary and productive and how to respond effectively to the destructive aspects of conflict.

Cook-Huffman is also a consultant for public and private organizations, centering on conflict transformation and change management, conflict resolution training, dispute resolution systems design, systems analysis, leadership training and assessing gender dynamics in conflict. She has been a mediator for more than 20 years in workplace and educational settings. She has received grants from the Fulbright program and the U.S. Embassy Program on Bicommunal Projects, Cyprus and taught courses for Transcend Peace University, and the Institute for Social and European Studies, Szombathely, Hungary.

Her research focuses on the impact of social identity on conflict and the relationship between gender issues and conflict. She earned the Juniata Junior Faculty Distinguished Teaching Award in 1996, a bachelor’s degree in peace studies and conflict resolution from Manchester College, a master’s degree in peace studies from the University of Notre Dame where she was an International Scholars Program Fellow, and a doctorate from Syracuse University.

2017 Peace Fellow Lecture -- Celia Cook-Huffman presents "Conflict and Reconciliation: Identity Matters"

Elizabethtown College Peace Fellowship presents a second 2017 Peace Fellow Lecture with Celia Cook-Huffman, an educator, training consultant and professor of peace and conflict studies at Juniata College where she holds the W. Clay and Kathryn Burkholder Professorship in Conflict Resolution.

The role of identities is critical to intervention design as communities work for social justice. Social Identity research reveals that strategies designed to foster reconciliation may have a negative impact on in-group solidarity among minority group members and thus decrease support for social change work and social change policies.  This research is important for rethinking strategies of peace building that seek to foster reconciliation and contribute to sustainable peace by creating greater justice and equity.

Cook-Huffman also is the associate director of the Baker Institute for Peace and Conflict Studies and director of Baker Mediation Services. Her background combines peace studies with specialized training and education in conflict transformation, nonviolence, gender and mediation.

Her teaching focuses on understanding conflict dynamics in interpersonal, organizational, inter-group and international contexts; the critical exploration of the role of conflict in the human community; seeking to understand when and how conflicts are necessary and productive and how to respond effectively to the destructive aspects of conflict.

Lecture -- Douglas Bomberger: American Music and the First World War

The year 1917 witnessed major changes in American musical culture. The German and Austrian expatriates who had dominated concert music in recent decades faced violent opposition when they were declared enemy aliens. The nervous energy of the time also made Americans receptive to the new genre of jazz, which first became a national craze in this year. Dr. Douglas Bomberger will discuss his research on this fascinating time in music history.

This program is part of World War I and America, a two-year national initiative of the Library of America presented in partnership with The Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, the National World War I Museum and Memorial, and other organizations, with generous support from the National Endowment for the Humanities.

"Book or Bust: Make it or Break it in the Publishing World"

Publishing... perhaps no other experience is as breath-taking or heart-breaking. Whether it's writing the great American novel or bringing the next great memoir to market, publishing is truly a career that takes a lot of guts to get the glory. Charles "Chuck" F. Adams knows that world inside and out, and joins us in a discussion of how to survive the written word.

Chuck Adams is executive editor at Algonquin Books, working out of the company’s Chapel Hill office. Previously he worked at Simon & Schuster, Dell/Delacorte, Macmillan, and Holt, Rinehart, and Winston. In a career that has spanned more than four decades, and that has focused on narrative fiction and non-fiction, he has worked with a diverse list of writers, including Mary Higgins Clark, Jackie Collins, Johnny Evison, Scott Eyman, Sandra Brown, James Lee Burke, Ellen Gilchrist, Robert Goolrick, Joe McGinniss, Kinky Friedman, Joseph Heller, Barbara Delinsky, Sara Gruen, Charles Portis, Brock Clarke, and Alan Shapiro. In addition, he has edited books by many celebrities and public figures, including Esther Williams, Tab Hunter, Cher, Ronald Reagan, Charlton Heston, Faye Dunaway, Kitty Dukakis, Neil Simon, Maureen O’Hara, and Sarah Ferguson.

David Kenley, World War I: The View from the East

In popular portrayals of World War I, the French, Germans, Americans, British and Russians are seen as the main participants.  However, World War I was tremendously significant for the non-Western world, serving as a seminal moment for Gandhi, Mao Zedong, Ho Chi Minh, Hirohito and the peoples of their nations.  In this presentation, David Kenley highlights the meaning of World War I for Asia and the ways in which the war led these nations toward World War II and rapid decolonization.

This program is part of World War I and America, a two-year national initiative of the Library of America presented in partnership with The Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, the National World War I Museum and Memorial, and other organizations, with generous support from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
