Multimedia scholarship invites reconsideration of how history has been, could be, and should be represented. By wrestling creatively and collectively with the difficult archival problems presented by social history of slavery, Harvard’s Vincent Brown hopes to chart new pathways for pondering history’s most painful and vexing subjects. This presentation considers three graphic histories of slavery — a web-based animation of Voyages: The Transatlantic Slave Trade Database, a cartographic narrative of the Jamaican slave revolt of 1760-61, and a web-based archive of enslaved family lineages in Jamaica and Virginia — that illustrate how the archive of slavery is more than the records bequeathed to us by the past; the archive also includes the tools we use to explore it, the vision that allows us to see its traces, and the design decisions that communicate our sense of history’s possibilities.
Multi-media historian Vincent Brown is Charles Warren Professor of History, Professor of African and African-American Studies, and Director of the History Design Studio at Harvard University. His research, writing, teaching, and other creative endeavors are focused on the political dimensions of cultural practice.

An illustrated lecture by Jennifer Scanlon, Associate Dean for Faculty and William R. Kenan, Jr. Professor of the Humanities in Gender and Women’s Studies at Bowdoin College “The Space Between: Rediscovering the Folly Cove Designers,” written by Scanlon and published in the June 2015 issue of the Massachusetts Review, serves as the catalyst for this lecture on the role of the Folly Cove Designers group (active 1938–1969) as a forerunner of women’s groups and professional organizations that fueled feminist social change in the following decades. Led and trained by children’s book illustrator and author Virginia Lee Burton, the Folly Cove Designers were a close-knit group whose shared interests in draftsmanship, pattern and New England material culture united them across class and ethnic backgrounds. The artistic and commercial success they achieved with their printed textiles energized and legitimized the group, both as a (primarily) women’s collective and as an artist’s cooperative. Christine Lundberg, producer of the award-winning film Virginia Lee Burton: A Sense of Place, will introduce Scanlon. This program is $10 for CAM members / $15 for non-members (includes admission).

For more than twenty years, Bill Maher has set the boundaries of where funny, political talk can go on American television. First on “Politically Incorrect” (Comedy Central, ABC, 1993-2002), and for the last thirteen years on HBO’s “Real Time,” Maher’s combination of unflinching honesty and big laughs have garnered him 34 Emmy nominations. Maher won his first Emmy in 2014 as executive producer for HBO series, “VICE.” In October of 2008, this same combination was on display in Maher’s uproarious and unprecedented swipe at organized religion, “Religulous,” directed by Larry Charles (“Borat”). The documentary has gone on to become the 8th Highest Grossing Documentary ever.
In addition to his television program – which has featured such regular visitors as Howard Dean, Ben Affleck, Robin Williams, Arianna Huffington, Cory Booker and Michael Moore – Maher has written five bestsellers: “True Story,” “Does Anybody Have a Problem with That? Politically Incorrect’s Greatest Hits,” “When You Ride Alone, You Ride with Bin Laden,” “New Rules: Polite Musings from a Timid Observer,” and most recently, “The New New Rules: A Funny Look at How Everybody But Me Has Their Head Up Their Ass.”
Maher started his career as a stand-up comedian in 1979, and still performs at least fifty dates a year in Las Vegas and in sold out theaters all across the country. Three of his ten stand-up specials for HBO – 2007’s “The Decider,” 2005’s “I’m Swiss,” as well as the hilarious, “Bill Maher … But I’m Not Wrong,” – have been nominated for Emmy awards.
