Irish Theatre of Chicago presents "Mojo Mickybo"

- (part of a series)

Location: DeBartolo Performing Arts Center

Irish Theatre of Chicago presents a vibrant and fast-paced one-act following two boys, masterfully played by Robert Kauzlaric and Dan Waller, growing up in Belfast during the summer of 1970. Mojo is from “up the road” and Mickybo from “over the bridge.” Their friendship centers on playing headers, pestering their parents and townsfolk, building huts, and day dreamily re-enacting Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid when encountering real or imagined friends and foes. The boys are blissfully unaware of the brewing sectarian violence coming that will change everything.

2019 Human Development Conference

(part of a series)

Hcd2019 Logo 600x400

Engaging with Empathy: a preferential option for the poor in development

The poor, according to Amartya Sen’s Capability Approach, consist of individuals who are deprived of basic freedoms such as education, political power, and other capabilities that allow individuals to achieve full lives that they have reason to value. This approach broadens the definition of poverty beyond traditional terms of financial power to recognize a multitude of “unfreedoms” which hinder upward movement in society. Historically, marginalized individuals most affected by policy changes are often ignored in the decision-making process in the development arena. This creates dire consequences: from lack of acceptance and implementation of new initiatives at the grassroots level to the inability of locals to adapt and scale programs according to their own community’s specific needs.…

-

Location: Hesburgh Center C103

Perspectives World Politics Logo Kellogg19 600x400

Sponsored by the Kellogg Institute for International Studies. A World Politics Series lecture by Allen Hicken.

The literature on party and party system institutionalization focuses on party institutionalization as a function of democratic factors.

Hicken, drawing on a paper co-authored with Darin Self of Cornell University, investigates the extent to which the institutional environment under authoritarian rule shapes party competition and institutionalization after a democratic transition.…
