  • NEW! The Mind and Memory of Mary McLeod Bethune

Join visiting scholar, Dr. Kim Warren, of the University of Kansas, for this virtual lecture hosted by the Department of History and the Department of Indigenous, Race, and Ethnic Studies. Kim Warren has traced the political evolution of the most influential African American woman in the 1930s, Mary McLeod Bethune. By the end of her life, Bethune had advised four presidents, convened the largest coalition of black women in the United States, and was often referred to as the “First Lady of the Struggle.” However, she has lived in the scholarly and popular memory simply as a celebrated teacher and a maternal advocate for civil rights. Warren takes Bethune’s story deeper by examining Bethune’s radical thoughts about voting, racial integration, and black feminism before a larger civil rights movement overshadowed her memory. Recently, Mary McLeod Bethune—or at least her memorial statue that will replace a Confederate soldier in the US Capitol Building—has reentered the public imagination as symbol of reconciliation for America’s past with racial and gender inequity.

  • Bioethics in the time of Black Lives Matter: A Black Feminist Perspective

Last summer saw the convergence of two major threats to public health: the COVID-19 pandemic and the enduring value gap between white and Black lives (referenced in the name of the protest movement Black Lives Matter). On April 8, 2021, the CDC released a statement naming racism as "a serious public health threat." By contrast, six weeks earlier, the Journal of the American Medical Association released a podcast (now withdrawn) in which the very existence of structural racism in medicine (by now a well-proven fact) was called into question. In this conversation, we will discuss how the CDC declaration might be translated into action within this larger social and political context and what Black feminist bioethicists can contribute to the ongoing conversation.

  • NEW! “Can Science Be Saved?” Cressman Lecture

During the COVID-19 pandemic, public debates about the validity of scientific findings and the value of science overall have intensified, as some Americans have actively resisted and even denied the legitimacy of scientific guidance about how to address the disease. What are the social and psychological drivers of public skepticism about science? How can skeptics be convinced otherwise? According to Naomi Oreskes, professor of the History of Science at Harvard University, people won’t be persuaded with more science or more facts. They deny scientific findings because they do not like the implications of their veracity—what Oreskes terms “implicatory denial.” Naomi Oreskes will explore the complexities of Americans’ denial of scientific findings and skepticism about science in her 2020–21 Cressman Lecture “Can Science Be Saved?”  via Zoom.

  • CHC Exclusive! JFK: The Last Speech screening and director Q&A

You are invited to attend the upcoming screening of JFK: The Last Speech, on Wednesday January 27 from 3:00 – 4:30 pm.  CHC alumna, Judy Bicknell, and her husband Neil (the film’s executive director) will participate in a Q&A session afterward. Scarcely one month before his assassination and just nine months after the death of the poet Robert Frost, President John F. Kennedy came to Amherst College to deliver a remarkable speech for the groundbreaking of the Robert Frost Library.  Kennedy spoke in striking terms of the relation of poetry to power, of the importance of the liberal arts to democratic citizenship and of the responsibility of those privileged to receive a higher education to serve the public good. JFK: The Last Speech movingly documents the bond between President John F. Kennedy and the poet Robert Frost—as well as Frost’s surprising encounter with Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev at the height of the Cold War. Called the “most majestic” of Kennedy’s career, the speech altered the lives of a group of Amherst College classmates, including Neil Bicknell. This film tells the story of the Frost-Kennedy relationship.  It features the speech that the President gave in October 1963 and explores the profound effect it had on his listeners.

Millions of families gather together every year to celebrate Thanksgiving in the United States. Many Americans do not grow up thinking much of the history behind the holiday. The main messages are that of gratitude, food, and family; however, Thanksgiving is, foundationally speaking, a celebration of the ongoing genocide against native peoples and cultures across the globe. In collaboration with the Native American Student Association (NASU), we will focus on ways in which we can continue to show gratitude while raising our critical consciousness and identifying ways to decolonize the holiday.

Mawani places the Pacific, Indian, and Atlantic Oceans into conversation to track the circulating legalities that connected the Dominions, colonies, and territories; the shifting intensities of racial, colonial, and legal violence that joined indigenous dispossession, transatlantic slavery, and Indian indenture to so-called “free” migration; and the transoceanic repertoires of anticolonial critique that challenged the empire’s underlying racial, spatial, and temporal divides.

  • NEW! CSWS Race, Ethnicities, and Inequalities Colloquium: “Across Oceans of Law” lecture

Renisa Mawani, professor of sociology at University of British Columbia, examines the S.S. Komagata Maru, which in 1914 left Hong Kong for Vancouver carrying 376 Punjabi migrants. Chartered by railway contractor Gurdit Singh, the ship and its passengers were denied entry into Canada and eventually deported to Calcutta. Mawani places the Pacific, Indian, and Atlantic Oceans into conversation to track the circulating legalities that connected the Dominions, colonies, and territories; the shifting intensities of racial, colonial, and legal violence that joined indigenous dispossession, transatlantic slavery, and Indian indenture to so-called “free” migration; and the transoceanic repertoires of anticolonial critique that challenged the empire’s underlying racial, spatial, and temporal divides.
