"To Catch a Thief: The Emerging Science of DNA Forensics" with Drew Cressman (Biology). Hosted by Wendy Fleishman '74 in Manhattan's Hudson Square (address will be shared upon registration). Since the mythical days of Sherlock Holmes, forensic science - the application of scientific principles and techniques to matters of criminal justice - has aided law enforcement as well as captured the public imagination. Television shows such as CSI have popularized more recent techniques, particularly the use of DNA analysis and the FBI's CODIS database to identify potential perpetrators, victims or other individuals. Beginning with the capture of California's infamous Golden State Killer two years ago, the field of DNA forensics has recently undergone dramatic innovations in genetic analysis and identification, embracing the use of genealogy websites such as Ancestry.com, enhancing specificity in DNA fingerprinting, and developing facial and physical profiles based on minimal DNA samples. In this talk, we'll discuss the scientific principles and techniques that form the basis of DNA forensics as well as the resulting limitations and implications regarding genetic privacy and suspect profiling.

"Writing the Occupation: French History in Literature" with Bella Brodzki '72 (Literature) and Jason Earle (French and Literature). No understanding of contemporary France is possible without examining the "Dark Years," the period of the German Occupation and the collaborationist Vichy Regime (1940-1944). Our seminar will focus on the personal and philosophical writings of Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir, both of whom experienced firsthand daily life in occupied Paris. Their framing accounts will enable us to reflect on the ethical, existential, and political choices demanded of artists and intellectuals during this time of collective anxiety and ambivalence. Assigned reading: Jean-Sartre, "Paris under the Occupation," and selections from Simone de Beauvoir, The Prime of Life (295-296, 348-368).
