Dennis Dalton (specialist in the colonial and post-colonial political history of India and renowned expert on Mahatma Gandhi and civil disobedience.)  
"Gandhi and Forgiveness." 

Gandhi practiced the value of forgiveness as a method of conflict resolution.  He derived this idea from the world's great religious traditions.  He applied it to his leadership of the Indian independence movement and later to attaining peace in the face of Hindu-Muslim civil war.  This lecture will explain how he urged forgiveness of British atrocities following the Amritsar massacre of 1919 and then through his Calcutta fast for religious unity in 1947.  Reference will also be made to similar acts of forgiveness by Martin Luther King, Jr. in 1956 during the Montgomery bus boycott."

"Haunting the American Dream: Eugenics, Meritocracy, Spatial Sorting & the Origins of Our Present Crisis"

In this talk, Jack Tchen will look at how post Civil War America was re-territorialized along hierarchies of those deemed "fit" and superior and those deemed "unfit" and devalued. Racial profiling, our ongoing segregation, high stakes testing, and cycles of urban displacement have deep historical roots in Jim Crow America. Eugenics sorting, bureaucracies, and big data became the modern organizational form of a new regime of valuation, sorting, and spatial segregation.  Co-sponsored by CSREG
