Trace the history of slavery and slave-trading in the Muslim world and the impact of efforts to abolish those practices. We will focus on the implications of the recent revival of slavery by organizations like ISIS and Boko Haram, tieing their actions to the rise of human trafficking in the Muslim world and the religious debate concerning whether Islam can truly permit abolition of all slavery and human trafficking within its orbit.

Although mostly unheralded, Alice Neel was one of the great American painters of the Twentieth Century, and a pioneer among women artists. A painter of people, landscape, and still life, Neel was never fashionable or in step with avant-garde movements. When abstract expressionism and pop art were all the rage, she painted in a style and with an approach distinctively her own. Come and hear about her unconventional life and her remarkable career, and see many examples of her unique and sometimes shocking paintings.
