Great Decisions Lecture: State of the State Department and Diplomacy

Thu., April 25, 12-1:30 p.m.

During the Trump administration, the usual ways of conducting diplomacy have been upended. Many positions in the State Department have never been filled, and meetings with foreign leaders such as Kim Jong-un and Vladimir Putin have been undertaken with little advance planning. What effect are these changes having now, and how will they affect ongoing relationships between the United States and its allies and adversaries? Free

Tracing an artwork’s ownership history—or provenance—involves detailed detective work. Researchers examine markings and labels, study archival sources, and track down exhibition histories and literature. Learning about how artworks have changed hands over time can provide insight into moments of political and economic transformation and larger cultural attitudes. In this talk, Heather Read (PhD18) presents her research into the ownership histories of selected works from the Kemper Art Museum collection, as part of the 2018 AAMD / Kress Foundation Provenance Research Fellowship. Free and open to the public. Free

Foundations of Freedom

Wednesdays-Sundays. Continues through Jan. 31, 2020
,

Dred Scott was a slave who'd been taken from Missouri, a slave state, to Illinois, a free one. Yet he remained in bondage. In 1846 Scott sued for freedom from enslavement for himself and his wife Harriet, arguing that his two years of residing in a free state should make him a citizen under the doctrine of "once free, always free." The case was fought in various courts from 1846 to 1857, with victories and setbacks along the way. After the Scotts' patron could no longer pay their legal fees, St. Louis attorney Roswell Field took the case pro bono and continued the fight to win the Scotts' freedom. It was an unpopular cause in Missouri, but the Scotts' eventual defeat helped further stiffen the spine of the abolitionist cause. Roswell Field's home is now the Field House Museum, which opens its new exhibition, Foundations of Freedom, in honor of Black History Month. The exhibit tells the story of the Scotts' long legal struggle, other freedom suits and the national conversation about the legality of slavery in the nineteenth century. Foundations of Freedom opens Saturday, February 2, at the Field House Museum (634 South Broadway; www.eugenefieldhouse.org). It remains on display through January 31, 2020, and the museum is open Wednesday through Sunday. Admission is $5 to $10. $5-$10
