Janet Napolitano - How Safe Are We? Homeland Security Since 9/11

The Department of Homeland Security was created in the wake of the greatest tragedy to occur on U.S. soil. An agency that's part terrorism prevention, part intelligence agency, and part law enforcement makes for an odd combination in the protocol-driven, tradition-bound Washington, DC culture. Where are the failures that leave us vulnerable? What are the real risks the United States needs to confront?

Janet Napolitano served as secretary of Homeland Security from 2009 to 2013.

"Bach To The Future" Concert Series: Maryam Raya Kheirbek, piano

Two fascinating works by Beethoven & Schumann are presented side by side and in contrast to each other. Beethoven's Fantasia is arguably one of the most improvisational and a most challenging piece of music ever composed. Set against that, Schumann's Symphonic Etudes with its theme and 16 variations (5 posthumously published) is not only itself, highly improvisational, but uses the variations principle to further explore the complexity and beauty of polyphony.

The concept of prison abolition has gained significant traction in recent years : Can the U.S.’s current state of punitive mass incarceration be dismantled in favor of a more socially productive, perhaps restorative, system? Is the abolition of prisons a realistic goal that Americans should strive toward, or are we forgetting the purpose of punishment at our own peril? Our panel will feature a diverse cross-section of academics and activists who will respond to questions on this topic.

The Political Economy of Social Problems

In his “fighting” book, Social Problems published nearly a decade after Progress & Poverty, Henry George argued that the unequal distribution of wealth is the fundamental problem that defines and shapes all other social problems faced by modern societies. He saw in monopoly and, in particular land monopoly the driving force behind wealth inequality and economic injustice. We'll ask whether his diagnosis was accurate then and now, and most importantly, discuss whether his solution is still relevant today.

Time: 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM
Dates: Mondays: 4/8, 4/15, 4/22, 4/29, 5/6
