Film Screening and Discussion: "The Lord is Not on Trial Here Today"

"The Lord is Not On Trial Here Today" is a Peabody Award-winning documentary that tells the compelling personal story of Vashti McCollum and how her efforts to protect her 10-year-old son led to one of the most important and landmark First Amendment cases in U.S. Supreme Court history — the case that established the separation of church and state in public schools. The case is little-known by the contemporary American public, yet the McCollum decision continues to have important ramifications for current conflicts over the role of religion in public institutions – from displays of the Ten Commandments in government buildings to student-led prayers at public school graduation ceremonies. A short discussion follows the film; open to the public.

Earth Science Seminar: Earth Science and Communities: Great Earthquakes to Wild Rice

Dr. Kenneth Ridgway, Professor of Earth and Atmospheric Science at Purdue University, will discuss the connection between earth science and communities. Such a connection seems obvious to most scientists but is much less clear to most communities. In the first part of his talk he will explore the geologic setting, the infrastructural damage, and the impact on communities of recent large earthquakes in Taiwan, Turkey, Haiti and Japan.  Decisions that communities and governments made about these types of geologic hazards had a profound impact on human life and the built environment.  In the second part of the talk, he will discuss how at Purdue University they are building connections between the scientific community and Native American communities. The strongest connections are developed when Native American students do research on issues that are directly relevant to their tribal lands and communities. An understanding of earth processes is critical in decision making both at the global and local community levels.

The Strayer-Wood Theatre presents Mauritius

Crime…Passion…Stamp Collecting? The stakes are high when two half-sisters, mourning the recent passing of their mother, inherit a book of rare stamps that may include the "crown jewel" of the stamp-collecting world. The battle for possession takes a dangerous turn when three rival collectors enter the sisters' world, and they are plunged into a seedy, cloak-and-dagger underworld.  Mauritius by Pulitzer Prize nominee and creator of the hit TV series Smash, Theresa Rebeck, is a suspenseful comedy-drama where everyone involved seems willing to bully, connive, cheat, and, if all else fails, conduct a legitimate business transaction, to gain control of the rarest of prizes. Adult language.  Directed by Steve Taft.
