Hibernian Lecture: "The Struggle for Ireland's Soul: Catholics under the Penal Laws"

-

Location: Geddes Hall, Andrews Auditorium, Lower Level

Mcbride 600w

Ian McBride is Foster Professor of Irish History at Hertford College, University of Oxford. His research has focused on 18th-century Ireland as well as the role of historians in making sense of the Northern Ireland conflict.

He has received a Leverhulme Major Research Award to produce a study of Catholic Ireland under the penal laws. Like the Great Famine and the Easter Rising, the persecution suffered by Irish Catholics during the “Penal Times” is a central component of Irish national mythology. McBride plans to write a book addressing how the 18th-century penal code was implemented and how it reshaped Catholic Ireland. Much of the research will be carried out in Rome, where a number of exceptionally rich archives have yet to be properly exploited.…

Conversation: "Designing Smart Cities: Mayors Taking Action"

-

Location: 101 Jordan Hall of Science

A Conversation with Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Mayor James Brainard

Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D-South Bend, IN) and Mayor Jim Brainard (R-Carmel, IN) have both opposed President Trump’s withdrawal of the United States from the Paris Climate Agreement and have committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions in their cities. Both have committed their municipalities to new “smart city” designs, creating walkable cities, promoting bike riding, and switching to hybrid or alternative fuel vehicles. They believe that these changes are part of a plan that is good for the earth, the economy, public health, and national security. With metropolitan areas housing 80% of the U.S. population, both mayors are committed to the belief that local policies can help offset a lack of action on the national level.
