As Texas Goes…

Speaker: 
Gail Collins
Thu, 06/21/2012 - 18:30
Thu, June 21st, 2012 | 7:30 pm

Event details

Not until she visited Texas, that proud state of big oil and bigger ambitions, did Gail Collins realize that she had missed the place that matters most in America’s political landscape. Through its vigorous support of banking deregulation, tax cuts, gun ownership and more, she argues that Texas has become the bellwether of a far-reaching national movement that continues to have profound social and economic implications for us all.

Event details

One president was a West Point-trained Mexican War veteran and a former Secretary of War. The other had virtually no military training except in a bloodless Indian war, yet emerged as the far greater commander-in-chief during the Civil War. Why the experienced Jefferson Davis faltered, while the untested Abraham Lincoln triumphed, remains one of the great mysteries of American history — as explored by this expert panel.

Prohibition New York: Art Deco of the 1920s

Speaker: 
Barry Lewis
Thu, 05/24/2012 - 18:30
Thu, May 24th, 2012 | 7:30 pm

Event details

Art Deco was the signature style of the boom times we call the Jazz Age. In New York, it coincided with the emergence of a new society that was breaking down Victorian mores and kicking up its heels. Then it all came to a sudden halt in 1929 when the stock market crashed. Join us to see New York’s first self-conscious embrace of the “new,” the last time “modernism” had fun.

Thu, May 17th, 2012 | 7:30 pm

Event details

From the time of Alexander Hamilton to Richard Nixon (with a time out for the Civil War), every American dollar was backed by gold and/or silver. In this program, three economists discuss the history of the Gold Standard and weigh the potential benefits and drawbacks that would come with its reinstatement. Why did America abandon it in 1971? And what would need to happen for America to return to a gold-based monetary system?

Greenwich Village: The First Bohemia

Speaker: 
Barry Lewis
Thu, 05/10/2012 - 18:30
Thu, May 10th, 2012 | 7:30 pm

Event details

New York’s first Bohemian neighborhood was Greenwich Village in the 1910s, when everyone from Edna St. Vincent Millay to John Sloan made “the Village” their hangout. It became so hip that by the 1920s the Bohemian era was over, due to rising rents and new luxury apartment buildings...until the next disaffected generation took up the Village’s mantra of non-conformism. Join us for this lecture and slide show — back by popular demand — with architectural historian Barry Lewis.

Harold Holzer (moderator)
Tue, 04/24/2012 - 18:30
Tue, April 24th, 2012 | 7:30 pm

Event details

The Civil War placed unprecedented — and to this day still unmatched — strain on the U.S. Constitution. Conflicts raged over civil liberties, executive power and the largest questions of nationhood. In this program, two eminent Civil War scholars illuminate how the U.S. Constitution not only survived its greatest test, but emerged stronger after the war, at a time when the nation’s very existence was threatened.

Event details

In December 1862, General Ulysses S. Grant issued General Order Number 11, which expelled all Jews from his military district of Kentucky, Tennessee and Mississippi in one of the most blatant incidents of officially sanctioned anti-Semitism in U.S. history. What were the reasons for Grant’s Order? What was its effect and why does this event in Civil War history remain relatively unknown?
