Mark Davis
Professor & Chair, Biology

Alien Species: Is it Biology or Ideology?
Over the past few decades, many conservationists and scientists have vilified non-native species. Whether intentional or not, such characterizations helped create a pervasive anti-non-native species perspective embraced by large numbers of the public, land managers, and policy-makers (as well as many scientists) throughout the world. But how much of this view is based on good science and how much on an ideology of nativism? Professor Davis will review this question and propose a more pragmatic and sensible approach to conservation in the 21st century.

2:25–3:10 p.m.

Tim Taylor
Managing Editor, Economics

Budget Deficits: Stimulus and/or Drag?
U.S. government deficits have been remarkably large in 2009 and 2010. This has been caused by the recession, both because a slow economy means lower tax revenues and as a result of additional spending and tax cuts in an attempt to stimulate a recovery. This lecture first considers the dispute over budget deficits as a form of economic stimulus in the short run, and then tackles the issue of when and how large chronic budget deficits could endanger the economy in the medium run.

3:20–4:05 p.m.

Katie Pratt
Visiting Instructor, Geography

Communities, Forests, and Conservation in Chile
This presentation explores the effects of industrial forestry on local communities in the temperate rain forest region of southern Chile.

Frederik Green
Assistant Professor, Asian Languages and Cultures

Bringing the World Home: How a Chinese 16th Century Map of the World Found its Way to Minnesota
In 2010, the James Bell Library of the University of Minnesota purchased an extraordinary map: the oldest surviving Chinese map to show the Americas, measuring 5 feet by 12 feet, printed from huge carved wood-blocks and dating from 1602. What is even more extraordinary is the story behind the making of this extremely rare map. Devised by the Italian Jesuit Mateo Ricci who was an advisor to the Chinese court, the map represents one of the most fascinating examples of cross-cultural translation and co-operation between China and the Western world. This lecture will address the story behind the map, its journey to the Twin Cities, and the role the map now plays in Macalester classrooms.

3:35–4:20 p.m.

Zornitsa Keremidchieva
Visiting Assistant Professor, Political Science

President Palin? President Bachmann? Is This What the Suffragists Had in Mind?
Sarah Palin and U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) hint that they each may run in the 2012 U.S. presidential race. Attractive and telegenic, both women have electrified audiences across the country and have generated impressive loyalty from conservative women. This program considers what would be a historic Republican primary election against the backdrop of efforts by early feminists to win for women the right to vote and run for office. What might Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton say to the "Mama Grizzlies" and "Pink Elephants" who seek to usher in a "new era of woman's rights" by electing Palin or Bachmann?

4:30–5:15 p.m.

Andrea Cremer
Assistant Professor, History

Walking the Line: Fantasy, Reality, and the Search for a Past
It was an accident — literally — that brought the young adult novel Nightshade to life. When Macalester history professor Andrea Cremer broke her foot horseback riding, she turned to something else she'd always wanted to do: writing a novel. Cremer's novel about the strong, fierce teenage female named Calla, who can transform at will from human to golden-eyed wolf quickly became a New York Times best seller and evolved into a full series. She now has two full-time jobs: best-selling author and beloved Macalester history professor. In this talk she will share the historical origins of her characters and stories — exploring witchcraft and werewolves in the Early Modern period.

2–3 p.m.

2:45–3:45 p.m.
Multi-generational Discussion about Spirituality
Do you recall Koinia House? Religion-in-Life Week? Mandatory Chapel? Mac used to be a pretty religious place, didn't it? So how is it that in 2007 the Princeton Review rated Mac as fourteenth on its list of schools where "students ignore God on a regular basis"? How did we go from the Mac of the ’60s to being a school where everyone is spiritual, but no one actually believes in God? Or is the big change just a myth and are Mac students actually just as interested in religion as they ever were? Sponsored by the Class of 1966.
