Lecture: “‘A Worse Type of Slavery’: Photographic Witnessing along Georgia’s Jim Crow Roads”

-

Location: Snite Museum of Art

Steven Hoelscher, Professor of American Studies and Geography at the University of Texas Austin explores a crucial moment in the turbulent history of American race relations, when post-emancipation hopes for African American civic equality and economic independence were crushed by disenfranchisement, lynching, and a vast array of legal structures aimed at black suppression. Central to that white supremacist project was the South’s notorious penal system that coerced incarcerated African Americans into a new form of state-sponsored slavery. Although widely accepted by whites as a natural and beneficial solution to a labor shortage, the forced use of African American prisoners for the hard and often fatal work of road building and other tasks after the Civil War did not go unchallenged. Among those critics was the radical, investigative journalist John L. Spivak, whose anti-racist work may have helped him earn the moniker “America’s Greatest Reporter” from Time magazine, but who has been largely forgotten.…

Lecture: Christopher Thompson, Integral Ecology and the Promise of Green Thomism

-

Location: Lecture – Andrews Auditorium, Geddes Hall

Summary Christopher Thompson Laudato Si’ called the Catholic community to an ecological conversion, a reorientation of our habits of mind toward a deeper consideration of creation and our responsibilities for its care. Is this a radical innovation? Or can we discern an intellectual patrimony at the heart of the discussion? In this lecture, Christopher Thompson invites us to reflect more deeply on the elements of ecological concern and consider the intellectual tradition inspired by St. Thomas Aquinas as a resource and guide going forward. “Green Thomism,” Thompson proposes, opens a path toward a renewed engagement with the Thomistic tradition as well as its contribution to contemporary ecological concern. …
