1:00 PM - 2:30 PM A Brief History of Cowardice?
The Suffolk Philosophy Society and the Philosophy Department present an event in the Philosophy Colloquium Series featuring Chris Walsh, Boston University:
  
A Brief History of Cowardice?
 
Coward: It's a grave insult, likely to provoke anger, shame, even violence. But what exactly is cowardice? And might contempt for the coward be a good thing? Cowardice may be more morally useful, for it requires us to think critically about our duties and our fears, and when fear and duty conflict, it can help us act ethically.
 
Refreshments will be served.

2:30 PM - 3:45 PM Distinguished Visiting Scholar Lecture: From Acadians to Cajuns: From The Deportation to the Bayou

Learn about the Acadians, from seventeenth-century France to Nova Scotia, where they prospered until the Grand Dérangement, a tragic moment in history of ethnic cleansing or genocide, when British soldiers expelled the Acadians from their homes.  Some Acadians fled to other Canadian maritime provinces, such as New Brunswick.  However, almost three thousand survivors journeyed through the thirteen American colonies to Spanish-controlled Louisiana where they resettled, intermarried, and became what we now know as the Cajuns.  Learn also how the Cajuns have worked hard to preserve their language and culture amidst the onslaught of American popular culture.

4:00 PM - 5:15 PM Distinguished Visiting Scholar Lecture: KKK Attacks on New England’s Franco-Americans

Most people today associate the Ku Klux Klan with violence against blacks in the American South.  Few realize that the terrorist group was pervasive in northern locales from Milo, ME, to Pawtucket, RI, where they often targeted white immigrants.  Dr. Eileen M. Angelini focuses this discussion on the KKK’s threats against Quebecois immigrants to New England in the first half of the twentieth century, using excerpts from Ben Levine’s documentary film Réveil.  During this period, many Protestant New Englanders became fearful of the influx of Quebecers, people who spoke a different language and practiced a different religion.  They blamed priests for encouraging Franco-Americans not to assimilate, not to learn English.  In these stories of the past we hear echoes of today’s debates about immigration, assimilation, and the English language.

What does racism and anti-racism look like from a Millennial perspective, and how do activists relate to those who came before them? This nuanced conversation will touch upon multiracial contexts, the value of intersectionality, the perils and perks of connecting via commenting, and more. Broadcast journalist Callie Crossley sits down with Andrew Ti, Spectra Asala, and Jay Smooth for an in-person discussion on how, 50 years later, racism is fought through the world’s electronic town hall.
