Uncomfortable Conversations – The People's Will?
Americans choose presidents through the Electoral College. What is it? Why do we have it? Why have some U.S. Presidents – including two of the last three – received fewer popular votes than rival candidates, yet won the presidency? Is the Electoral College still relevant? And, if we wanted to change it, is it even possible?

These are the questions that will be addressed by our panel of political analysts.

Mother of Frankenstein: The Portrayal of Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley in American Popular Film

Dr. Roger Solberg, Department of English and Philosophy
The 2018-2019 academic year coincides with the 200th anniversary of the publication of Mary Shelley’s novel Frankenstein. While everyone has heard of the Frankenstein monster, how much does the average person know about its author? American movies have made several attempts at portraying her for the general public, but how accurate are those portraits? We will examine the cinematic depiction of Mary Shelley in four films: The Bride of Frankenstein (1953), Gothic (1986), Haunted Summer (1988), and Mary Shelley (2017). Clips from the movies will be shown.

Black Womanism Rising: Beyonce, JayZ & the Quest to Burn the Patriarchy to the Ground

Frank G. Pogue Student Center, Seminar Room 143 
Black Womanism Rising: Beyonce, JayZ & the Quest to Burn the Patriarchy to the Ground 
Dr. Rhonda Matthews, Department of History, Politics, Languages & Cultures 
Beyonce is arguably one of the world’s biggest musical artists. Throughout her career, she has become increasingly political in revealing her public stances, especially as they relate to feminist ideology. However, the personal is often political and the art that she, and partner JayZ, have created by revealing some of their own struggles, has had the biggest impact on her audience. We will explore the messages and effects of the public discussions of family, Blackness, and the evolving views about what it means to be a women, a man and a family.

Nichole Heitzenrater, Student, Middle & Secondary Education & Educational Leadership
Why were hundreds of people accused of witchcraft in Salem, Massachusetts in 1692, and why were 20 people executed? Why were the majority of accusers and accused female? Why did a people who fled England because of religious persecution become persecutors? We will examine the implications of biblical justice in the “holy commonwealth” at the end of the 17th century and analyze several long-term results of those trials.

Dr. Stephen Sullivan, Department of English and Philosophy
Frances Wright (1795-1852) was an important 19th-century feminist thinker and activist who lived a fascinating though difficult life. She had a major impact on first-wave feminist thought in the United States, though she was eventually unjustly forgotten. Wright also made significant contributions to philosophy, education, and the abolitionist movement. In this presentation I will outline her life story and share some of her important ideas.
