Why are they so effective? Come along and find out with one of the UKs top public speaking experts.
  • ZSR Library, Special Collections & Archives Research Room (Room 625)
    What is "the archive" and why should you visit Special Collections? What kinds of materials will you encounter there? Why should you consult original primary sources when so many materials are available in edited collections or digitized online? This student panel explores these questions by focusing on specific items--images, texts, and objects--in Special Collections at the ZSR Library. Undergraduate students in recent classes in the Departments of Art, English, and History will reflect on their experience visiting the archive, discussing how it impacted their perspectives about research and course topics. In addition to discussing the importance of hands-on experience in the archive for research across the humanities, the goal of this panel is to also consider new possibilities for collaborative student engagement with original primary source images and texts, including novels, periodicals, and photographs. This event will be facilitated by Professors Stephanie Koscak, Morna O'Neill, and Jessica Richard.

  • ZSR Library, Library Auditorium (Room 404)
    Dr. Harel Shapira will present findings from his fieldwork at gun training schools in Texas where he is investigating how Americans teach and learn about using guns for self-defense. Expanding and complementing existing public health, public policy, and criminological approaches to gun violence, Shapiras work moves beyond accounts of peoples motivations for owning guns to analyzing how they train their minds and bodies to kill. The lecture is free and open to the public and will begin at 4 p.m. in the ZSR Library Auditorium on the Wake Forest campus. A reception with Dr. Shapira will follow at 5 p.m. The event is sponsored by the Wake Forest Department of Sociologys Patrick Fund. About Harel Shapira Harel Shapira is a sociologist who uses ethnographic methods to understand politics, race, and social movements in America. For his first book, Waiting for Jose: The Minutemens Pursuit of America, Shapira lived and patrolled the southern Arizona desert with men seeking to prevent immigrants from crossing the border from Mexico into the United States. Challenging simplistic depictions of these men as right-wing fanatics with loose triggers, Shapira discovers a group of men who long for community and embrace the principles of civic engagement. He reveals that what draws these men to the border is not simply racism or anti-immigrant sentiments, but a chance to relive a sense of meaning and purpose rooted in an older life of soldiering. They come to the border not only in search of illegal immigrants, but of lost identities and experiences. His current work on how people at guns training schools in central Texas teach and learn about the use of lethal force for self-defense is supported by a grant from the Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundation. Shapira holds a PhD from Columbia University (2010) and was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Institute for Public Knowledge at New York University before joining the Department of Sociology at the University of Texas - Austin in the fall of 2013.

    From the later seventeenth century, the expansion of the marketplace of print, engravings, and other visual-material objects disseminated representations of British royalty across a wider social scale than ever before. Yet many of these images and texts have received little sustained analysis in political histories of the period. In this talk, Koscak focuses on the social practices and responses of individuals as they encountered, purchased, displayed, and interpreted these items. Doing so reveals how the changing media landscape opened up a space in which ordinary subjects reimagined popular reverence and their relationship to the crown. Looking beyond the sphere of official court patronage, therefore, alerts us to the ways in which print and consumerism broadened the practice and performance of royalism within England. Stephanie Koscak is a Wake Forest University Professor of British History and the 2016 winner of the Nathan and Julie Hatch Research Grant for Academic Excellence Award which gave her the opportunity to spend a week of study at the Summer Research Institute, Harris-Manchester College, Oxford University.

In contrast, Jawhara Ettis, of the Islamist party ennahda, works towards a Tunisia guided by Islamic principles. On a public level, both women must navigate how females are treated in their society, while at home they must make difficult choices to balance their public political roles with marriage and motherhood. Both know the stakes are high. (2016, 90 minutes, English, French, Arabic, English subtitles).
