  • The Chavez Doctrine: 'Social Power' as a Foreign Policy Tool, a lecture by Javier Corrales
    • Chávez's pocket-book diplomacy has created a new type of foreign policy "threat" that is not easy to address with either hard or soft power. Oil diplomacy has allowed Chávez to construct an impressive--if not impermeable--public relations shield. Venezuela uses this largesse to effectively coopt important political constituencies around the world and mitigate criticism. Chávez is unique among petro states in how far he is going in exporting corruption and calling it social development. Easy to dismiss as little more than an extension of Chavez's bluster, Venezuela's foreign spending spree is having some serious consequences. The speaker, Javier Corrales, is associate professor of Political Science at Amherst College.

  • Joan Baez at Spring Hill College: A Study of Intersecting Histories, a talk by Stephen Kelly
    • On May 7, 1963 Joan Baez gave a concert at Spring Hill College in Mobile Alabama. On the surface this would seem to be a wholly unremarkable event. After all, in 1963 Joan Baez, who had emerged as the “Queen” of the folk revival, performed on many college campuses. Furthermore, this particular event evokes no stirring memories in the public mind as does, for example, “Three Days of Peace and Music.” However, this little-known performance in Alabama, on the day after Baez had been present at the historic civil rights demonstrations in Birmingham, takes on extraordinary significance when viewed from the intersection of multiple histories: social, musical, institutional, and personal. Using eyewitness accounts, photographs, and a precious unreleased live recording which includes Baez’ comments on the racial climate, the author reveals this larger meaning. Kelly is Carleton's Dye Family Professor of Music.

  • Playing False: Betrayal in the Ancient World
    • Carleton Classics Senior Symposium 2012. Intrigue, treachery, espionage: betrayal was everywhere in the ancient world, but there was nothing simple about individuals' loyalties or the choices they made. Betrayal took many forms, but at its core was a choice to privilege one interest that led to real or perceived damage to others. The Carleton Department of Classics’ senior classics majors explore instances of betrayal in Ancient Greece and Rome such as early Christian martyrs, the mistrial of generals, virgin sacrifice and the legacy of Constantine. Each talk will last fifteen to twenty minutes in addition to question and answer sessions and a panel discussion on the larger topic of betrayal.
