Potawatomi Scholar Shares Past, Future, of Band's Cultural and Environmental Resources (March 2018 5:00 pm)

The preservation of history and the future of a Michigan waterway, along with some Albion history, are part of a presentation by Potawatomi scholar Blaire Topash-Caldwell on Wednesday, March 28, at 5 p.m. in Albion College's Bobbitt Visual Arts Center.

A doctoral candidate in anthropology at the University of New Mexico, Topash-Caldwell also serves as archivist for the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians, whose historical lands included present-day Albion. Along with working to preserve the Potawatomi language and cultural and spiritual traditions, Topash-Caldwell is active in the band's quest to return the Dowagiac River to its pre-industrial course. The Dowagiac was "straightened" in the 19th century by the logging industry, and reversal of this holds environmental, as well as cultural and spiritual benefits.

This presentation is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Albion College anthropology professor Allison Harnish at 517/629-0309.

Daoud Lecture Looks at Religion and Nation-Building in the Middle East (March 2018 7:00 pm)

The Albion College Religious Studies Department warmly welcomes Joshua M. Landis on Wednesday, March 28 at 7 p.m. in the Norris Science Center’s Towsley Hall as he explores how religion and nation-building are intertwined in the reality of the Middle East after ISIS.

Landis’s expertise is derived from his experiences as a published author, professorships at the University of Oklahoma and in Arezzo, Italy, and frequent appearances as an analyst on TV and radio as well as in Washington DC. He has contributed to Al Jazeera America, NPR, and BBC radio and maintains a daily newsletter on Syrian politics. Landis, an alum of Swarthmore College who completed his graduate work at Harvard and Princeton, lived for more than 14 years in the Middle East as a recipient of three Fulbright grants and support from the Social Science Research Council.

The Daoud Family Lectureship in Middle Eastern Studies was created by the late Detroit businessman Tarik S. Daoud and his family to promote a better understanding of Middle Eastern history, peoples, and cultures, and of the crucial role the Middle East plays in today’s world. A native of Iraq, Daoud had long been an active leader in the Detroit business community, was a founding member of the American Arab Chamber of Commerce and was a previous recipient of the Ellis Island Medal of Honor and the Detroit News’s Michiganian of the Year award.

This lecture is free and the public is invited to attend. For more information, contact the Religious Studies Department at 517/629-0207 or .
