  • Book Reading and Book Signing with David S. Cariens, Jr.

    9/29/14
    12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
    Barnes & Noble at Emerson College
    114 Boylston Street
    Boston, MA 02116
    United States of America

    What: A Reading and Book Signing with David S. Cariens, Jr., author of Virginia Tech: Make Sure It Doesn't Get Out
    When: Monday, September 29, 2014, Noon--2:00
    Where: Barnes & Noble at Emerson College
    Who: Emerson faculty, students, staff, and alumni. Free.

    David Cariens is a retired CIA officer who currently teaches intelligence analysis and writing in the United States and abroad. He is the author of Critical Thinking Through Writing: Intelligence and Crime Analysis, and of A Question of Accountability: The Murder of Angela Dales—an examination of the January 16, 2002 shooting at the Appalachian School of Law in Grundy, Virginia. Cariens has been interviewed extensively on radio and television about school shootings, and has spoken on college campuses on this topic, including what families can do to insist that schools have effective security measures in place and that such measures are understood by administrators, faculty, staff, and students.

    In Virginia Tech: Make Sure It Doesn't Get Out, Cariens dissects the April 16, 2007 Virginia Tech shootings that left 32 students and professors dead, and 17 others wounded. He exposes the duplicity of people in positions of trust—politicians, school officials, medical and law enforcement personnel—and concludes that deceit, cover up, and lies are the legacy for the families directly affected by the shooting; that is what the families live with in a country that is at war with itself. The book is a clarion call for hard-hitting actions and analyses of gun violence to help prevent further tragedies.

  • Special advanced screening: Kill the Messenger with director

    9/29/14
    2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
    Paramount Center
    Bright Family Screening Room

    This screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Michael Cuesta (L.I.E., Dexter, Homeland and Elementary)

    This is a dramatic thriller based on the remarkable true story of Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Gary Webb (Jeremy Renner). Webb stumbles onto a story which leads to the shady origins of the men who started the crack epidemic on the nation's streets...and further alleges that the CIA was aware of major dealers who were smuggling cocaine into the U.S., and using the profits to arm rebels fighting in Nicaragua. Despite warnings from drug kingpins and CIA operatives to stop his investigation, Webb keeps digging to uncover a conspiracy with explosive implications. His journey takes him from the prisons of California to the villages of Nicaragua to the highest corridors of power in Washington, D.C. - and draws the kind of attention that threatens not just his career, but his family and his life.

    This event is not open to the public.

  • The Specter of Neo-Nazism and the Collapse of the EU: Reflections on the May 2014 European Elections

    9/30/14
    6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
    Charles Beard Room
    Little Building
    80 Boylston St
    Boston, MA 02111
    United States of America
    Charles Beard Room

    Lecture by Dr. Gazmend Kapllani (Scholar Rescue Fund Fellow, Institute for Liberal Arts and Interdisciplinary Studies) and Dr. Vincent Raynauld (Asst. Professor, Communication Studies). Moderated by Dr. Maria Koundoura (Professor and Chair, Writing, Literature and Publishing).

    A specter is haunting Europe: EU's break-up. The "Euro crises" is threatening the existence of the European Union itself while the rise of the Extreme Right has brought back the "ghosts of the European past": nationalism, populism, xenophobia, authoritarianism. In the recent European elections (May 2014) parties defined as Extreme Right scored spectacular results – the victory of the French National Front being the most striking example of this "political earthquake". Currently the presence of Extreme Right parties in the European Parliament cannot be considered any more as a marginal phenomenon. Prof. Kapllani will focus on the question: Can the rise of right-wing extremism in Europe call into question the existence of European Union or challenge the legitimacy of the continent's democratic order itself? Professor Raynauld will focus on the role that citizen politicking (populism-inspired outreach tactics, including the use of social media platforms) is playing in the resurgence of the extreme right and their focus issues of religion and immigration.
