Complete History of America (abridged): Election Edition
Who will be our next President — Donald Trump? Hillary Clinton? Kim Kardashian? This performance will provide the historical context that is guaranteed to confuse any American voter. Just in time for the 2016 Presidential Election, the Reduced Shakespeare Company returns with 600 Years of History in 6000 seconds! The “bad boys of abridgment” go from Christopher Columbus to Neil Armstrong, from George Washington to Barack Obama, yea verily from the Bering Strait to Baghdad, from the New World to the New World Order. It’s a ninety-minute roller coaster ride through the glorious quagmire that is American History.

CONVO: Irrepressible - A Jazz Age Life Revealed
CONVO: Irrepressible - A Jazz Age Life Revealed
Crounse Hall – Vahlkamp Theater, Danville KY

 
Author Emily Bingham will read from and discuss Irrepressible: The Jazz Age Life of Henrietta Bingham. Henrietta, Bingham’s great-aunt, was “A muse to the Bloomsbury Group, the daughter of the ambassador to the United Kingdom during the rise of Nazism … and a pre-Stonewall figure who never buckled to convention.” Henrietta was also a lesbian who “caught the wave of a rare moment of tolerance for homosexuality and unconventional desires in the 1920s. When that wave receded, she was stranded and exposed … within the family, her name almost stopped being mentioned.” (The New York Times) Emily will be talking about making the discovery of her never-talked-about aunt (first, literally, in a trunk in the attic full of letters and locked diaries, which began Emily’s journey of involved and wide-ranging research). She will also be reading from the book about Henrietta, this daughter of wealth and privilege whose lesbianism was a source of shame for some members of her family. Finally, she will discuss the process of moving her research “beyond hearsay.” Emily received her Ph.D. at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

CONVO: The 2016 Presidential Election
CONVO: The 2016 Presidential Election
Norton Center for the Arts – Weisiger Theatre, Danville KY

 
Explaining the (Unexplainable?) 2016 Presidential Election
In early 2015 it was widely anticipated that the 2016 election would be a contest between former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, or perhaps Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker or Florida Senator Marco Rubio. Instead the 2016 primaries surprised everyone by nominating businessman Donald Trump as the Republican Party’s candidate for president. This convocation features a conversation with political scientist Dr. Julia Azari, Associate Professor of Political Science at Marquette University, and Dara Lind, political reporter for Vox.com, moderated by Dr. Benjamin Knoll, Harlan Associate Professor of Politics at Centre College. They will share their expertise on the 2016 presidential primaries, the general election campaign, and the growing field of “data journalism” which has quickly become an indispensable part of political analysis over the past few years.
