The International Bar Association Foundation, Sandra Day O’Connor Institute and the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at ASU will host a free, public, non-partisan conversation on Constitution Day about the benefits, responsibilities and economic significance of preserving the rule of law and the principles it embodies on Constitution Day.

Retired U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor stated that: “Commitment to the rule of law provides a basic assurance that people can know what to expect whether what they do is popular or unpopular at the time.”

As the first of a series of town halls to be held across the country, a respected collection of legal minds and national figures will come together in an open forum to candidly talk about the meaning and importance of the rule of law.

Featuring our distinguished guest panel:

Nicole Carroll, editor-in-chief, USA Today

Jon Kyl, U.S. Senator from Arizona (1995-2013, 2018)

Myles Lynk, professor emeritus, Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State University

Ruth McGregor, chief justice, Arizona Supreme Court (ret.) and O’Connor Supreme Court Clerk

Homer Moyer (moderator), past chair, International Bar Association Rule of Law Forum

 

Complimentary admission and parking.

The School of Civic and Economic Thought and Leadership welcomes Michael McConnell to Arizona State University where he will present the 2019 Constitution Day Address.

At the Constitutional Convention, the delegates struggled to create a presidency with sufficient authority to lead the nation, but without creating an elective monarch. This lecture will outline the little-known story of how the framers went about that task, and its implications for today.

Michael W. McConnell is the Richard and Frances Mallery Professor and director of the Constitutional Law Center at Stanford Law School, and a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution. From 2002 to the summer of 2009, he served as a Circuit Judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit. McConnell has held chaired professorships at the University of Chicago and the University of Utah, and visiting professorships at Harvard and NYU. He has published widely in the fields of constitutional law and theory, especially church and state, equal protection and constitutional structure. According to a recent study, his work has been cited in opinions of the Supreme Court second most often of any legal scholar during the past decade. He is co-editor of three books: "Religion and the Law", "Christian Perspectives on Legal Thought" and "The Constitution of the United States". McConnell has argued fifteen cases in the Supreme Court. He is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the 2017 winner of the Rex E. Lee Appellate Advocacy Award, and the recipient of honorary doctorates from Notre Dame University and the Michigan State University College of Law. He served as law clerk to Supreme Court Justice William J. Brennan, Jr. and is Of Counsel to the appellate practice of Kirkland & Ellis.

The Creative Writing Program at ASU presents author Jess Row in a reading from his work followed by a Q&A and book signing.

Row is the author of "White Flights: Race, Fiction, and the American Imagination," as well as the novel "Your Face in Mine" and the story collections "The Train to Lo Wu" and "Nobody Ever Gets Lost." "White Flights" is his first book of nonfiction. One of Granta’s Best of Young American Novelists of 2007, he lives in New York and teaches at the College of New Jersey.

Book summary

"White Flights" is a meditation on whiteness in American fiction and culture from the end of the civil rights movement to the present. At the heart of the book, Jess Row ties “white flight” — the movement of white Americans into segregated communities, whether in suburbs or newly gentrified downtowns — to white writers setting their stories in isolated or emotionally insulated landscapes, from the mountains of Idaho in Marilynne Robinson’s "Housekeeping" to the claustrophobic households in Jonathan Franzen’s "The Corrections." Row uses brilliant close readings of work from well-known writers such as Don DeLillo, Annie Dillard, Richard Ford, and David Foster Wallace to examine the ways these and other writers have sought imaginative space for themselves at the expense of engaging with race.

"White Flights" aims to move fiction to a more inclusive place, and Row looks beyond criticism to consider writing as a reparative act. What would it mean, he asks, if writers used fiction “to approach each other again”? Row turns to the work of James Baldwin, Dorothy Allison, and James Alan McPherson to discuss interracial love in fiction, while also examining his own family heritage as a way to interrogate his position. A moving and provocative book that includes music, film, and literature in its arguments, "White Flights" is an essential work of cultural and literary criticism.

Praise

“Row has produced a thoughtful and timely meditation that serves as a call to white writers.” —Pop Matters

“This intelligent collection is often deeply engaged in realms of philosophy and literary theory. . . . There is something for every reader . . . in the message that fiction not only reflects but acts upon real life, and that each of us is obliged to act for justice, in reading and writing as in life.” —Shelf Awareness

“With these superb essays, Jess Row reveals himself to be an insightful critic of both literature and the American condition.” —Viet Thanh Nguyen

“Jess Row performs a much-needed analysis. . . . The landscape of the imagination, like the country itself, he argues with rich insight and brio, is neither equal nor free.” —John Keene

Bees are responsible for the production of 70% of the fruits, nuts and vegetables humans eat on a daily basis. In fact, one in three bites of food we take on any given day was probably helped along by a bee somewhere — an alarming statistic when we consider that bee populations are declining worldwide due to the loss of biodiversity and the destruction of habitat as a result of industrial agriculture, the existence of parasites and pathogens and climate change. 

Part of the seed library initiative, this ASU Library exhibit takes a look at what we can do on an individual and community level to help protect bees and biodiversity. (Spoiler: The number one thing? Urban gardening.)

This exhibit is free and open to the public.

Often Americans' acceptance of world religions is largely contingent upon theological proximity to Christianity. Hence, atheists, pagans and polytheists face a slew of stereotypes and discrimination for their beliefs. This program is an opportunity to dispel common myths about these worldviews while highlighting the humanistic emphasis on these seven principles of Humanity 101: empathy, compassion, kindness, forgiveness, integrity, respect and self-reflection.

Melissa Wilson will be talking about her recently published paper about "Women caught in a pickle by their own immune systems." She is a computational evolutionary biologist whose main research interests include sex-biased biology. She studies the evolution of sex chromosomes (X and Y in mammals), why mutation rates differ between males and females, and how changes in population history affect the sex chromosomes differently than the non-sex chromosomes. Generally she studies mammals, but is also curious about the sex-biased biology of flies, worms and plants.

Wilson is also active in public science engagement and outreach. She routinely teaches in K–12 classrooms, and regularly engages the public in discussions about the difference between sex and gender, the importance (or not) of genetic inheritance, and understanding evolution.

She teaches evolution and computational biology.

We live in a death-denying culture. We fear the unknown and what could be more unknown than what exists beyond our living reality? So, we have created mythology around it, fabricated a number of stories to help us cope, but in daily life, we typically ignore it. However, times are changing, and there is a growing need to come to terms with our own mortality.

Artists historically are the cultural disseminators, particularly of difficult to digest ideas, and the subject of death is not new. One simply need to look to the 17th century vanitas paintings, or the Victorian post-mortem photography to find historic examples. While the western philosophy around death has been buried into social obscurity, the prevalence of serious contemporary artwork about death has been expanding. Memento Mori will showcase a collection of photographic images from historic and contemporary artists, each approaching the theme of death in their own unique way, spanning from literal to symbolic, from deeply personal to abstract cultural interpretations.

In many respects, Vine Deloria Jr (1933-2005) has become a historical figure, alongside such luminaries as Charles Eastman, D’Arcy McNickle, Jack Forbes, and Beatrice Medicine, whose writings have been canonized in American Indian/Native American studies, but which have acquired the patina of bygone eras. Consequently, it’s easy to overlook the influence that their ideas and opinions are having on the current discussion regarding Indian affairs. Deloria, in particular, stands out among his peers for having almost singlehandedly defined the discourse on federal Indian law and policy, tribal self-determination, and decolonization. "Life of the Indigenous Mind: Vine Deloria Jr and the Birth of the Red Power Movement" (2019) is an intellectual history of Deloria’s critical role in the debate over Indian rights, which was instigated by the clash of federal termination policy, treaty rights, and the shattering of white American hegemony during the struggle for Civil Rights and the Vietnam War. Out of this social upheaval emerged a resilient notion of Indigenous nationhood that is still serving as the backbone to contemporary Indigenous sovereignty.

David Martínez (Akimel O’odham/Hia Ced O’odham/Mexican) is an associate professor of American Indian Studies and the author of "Dakota Philosopher: Charles Eastman and American Indian Thought" (Minnesota Historical Society Press, 2009), editor of "The American Indian Intellectual Tradition: An Anthology of Writings from 1772 to 1972" (Cornell University Press, 2011), and author of "Life of the Indigenous Mind: Vine Deloria Jr and the Birth of the Red Power Movement" (University of Nebraska Press, 2019). He has also published articles in the American Indian Quarterly, the American Indian Culture and Research Journal, Studies in American Indian Literatures, and Journal of the Southwest.

Development Reimagined Speaker Series

“Why do we go to School? Leadership thinking and Problem-Solving"
with Lindy Elkins-Tanton, PhD
Interplanetary Initiative, School of Earth and Space Exploration
Join us for the second talk in the Development Reimagined series, focused on the theme of disrupting development and the future through innovative approaches and new thinking. This talk features Lindy Elkins-Tanton, PhD, director of the School of Earth and Space Exploration at Arizona State University, co-chair of the Interplanetary Initiative and principal investigator of the Psyche mission, selected in 2017 as the 14th in NASA’s Discovery program. Elkins-Tanton received her Bachelor of Science and Master of Science from MIT in 1987 and her PhD in 2002.
 
Content is no longer the differentiator in education, as most college graduates require additional training after securing employment. The key 21st-century skills of complex interdisciplinary problem-solving, goal-setting, team collaboration, creativity, and analytic reasoning are those that humans uniquely bring to the workforce, but they are seldom explicitly taught. People are “hired for the hard skills and fired for the soft skills” — so we will train students in both. Through Interplanetary Initiative and our partners we are developing new ways to run courses, ways for people to learn how to learn better, and to focus on the key skills of problem identification and solution. These are largely the skills of graduate school, but started at the freshman level. Most importantly, we need faster progress toward our positive human future, and producing a generation of problem-solvers with a sense of agency is a key step.

The 2019 Maxine and Jonathan Marshall Speaker on Religion and Conflict with David Gushee

There are historical moments in many countries when social and political developments become so toxic that religious and scholarly leaders, and the communities they serve, conclude that neutrality and/or disengagement is immoral. Examples include early Nazi Germany, the civil rights movement in America, apartheid South Africa, and others. In Germany, beginning after Hitler took power in 1933, the Confessing Church arose to stand in protest, mainly against Nazi interventions in the life and doctrine of the German Evangelical Church, though some went beyond that. This talk will explore the story of the Confessing Church in Germany, as well as the current moment in America, to ask about the role of Christianity, and scholars of religion and other engaged citizens, in such a time as this.

The event will be live-streamed at: https://asunow.asu.edu/asulive

Rev. David P. Gushee (PhD, Union Theological Seminary, New York) is Distinguished University Professor of Christian Ethics and Director of the Center for Theology and Public Life at Mercer University in Georgia. One of the premier Christian ethicists in the world, he is the author or editor of twenty-four books, including "Righteous Gentiles of the Holocaust," "Changing Our Mind," "Still Christian" and his latest, "Moral Leadership for a Divided Age: Fourteen People Who Dared to Change Our World." Gushee has served as the President of the American Academy of Religion, and as the President of the Society of Christian Ethics.

The Maxine and Jonathan Marshall Speaker Series on Religion and Conflict is an endowed lecture series that honors the life-long commitment of Maxine Besser Marshall ('76) and Jonathan Marshall to the arts, education, civil liberties, and world peace.

One simply need to look to the 17th century vanitas paintings, or the Victorian post-mortem photography to find historic examples. While the western philosophy around death has been buried into social obscurity, the prevalence of serious contemporary artwork about death has been expanding. Memento Mori will showcase a collection of photographic images from historic and contemporary artists, each approaching the theme of death in their own unique way, spanning from literal to symbolic, from deeply personal to abstract cultural interpretations.
