Thursday February 9
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Join historian Brett Gary for a discussion with Matthew Ellis, History faculty, on censorship battles in American culture. They will consider the censorship strategies and spectacles that continue to rattle the nation’s legislatures, schools, and libraries -- over art, literature, history, reproductive rights, and queer bodily autonomy - followed by a discussion with the audience. Brett Gary is the author of, Dirty Works: Obscenity on Trial in America’s First Sexual Revolution, an award-winning study of key legal battles over literary and sexual censorship from the late 19th through the mid-20th century. His work examines the transformation of the nation’s obscenity laws through the legal travails of pioneering and controversial sex researchers and educators, birth control activists, and literary modernists, paving the way for the sexual revolutions and culture war conflicts to follow. This event will be held on Sarah Lawrence's campus and is open to the public to attend virtually or in person.

1:45 PM - 3:00 PM
Scottish writer and activist Sara Sheridan has suggested that "without archives many stories of real people would be lost, and along with those stories, vital clues that allow us to reflect and interpret our lives today." More than a repository of dusty documents for historians to sift through, archives can serve as a vital bridge between our collective past, present, and future. But what is an archive? How are archives made and maintained? What, and who, are they for? What is their function in our knowledge economy, and how do different people, professions, and social groups make use of them? As we lurch rapidly towards a hyper-digital future, what will happen to physical archives and the bountiful treasures from the past that they contain? What does the brave new world of the "digital archive" herald for us? This panel will explore the notion of the archive from various vantage points. Panelists include: Matthew Ellis, History faculty; Margarita Fajardo, History faculty; Roy Ben-Shai, Philosophy faculty; Sophie Barbasch, Visual and Studio Arts faculty; and Christina Kasman, College Archivist. This event will be held on Sarah Lawrence's campus and is open to the public to attend.
