Screening and Conversation with Filmmaker Sam Green, Thursday, April 19 7 p.m. VCAM Screening Room, Haverford College. Fueled by outrage over racism and the Vietnam War, the Weather Underground waged a low-level war against the government throughout much of the 1970s—bombing the Capitol building, breaking Timothy Leary out of prison, and evading one of the largest FBI manhunts in history. The Weather Underground is a feature-length documentary that explores the rise and fall of this radical movement, as former members speak candidly about the idealistic passion that drove them to “bring the war home.” Sam Green is a documentary filmmaker. He’s made many movies including most recently A Thousand Thoughts, a live cinematic collaboration with the Kronos Quartet.  Sam’s documentary The Weather Underground was nominated for an Academy Award and included in the 2004 Whitney Biennial. Free and open to the public.


Beyond the Grassroots: Participatory Ecology and Political Praxis
2018 Mellon Symposium “Doing politics and doing science at the human-environment edge.”Organized by Rafter Sass Ferguson. Visiting Assistant Professor of Environmental Studies and Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow; Friday, April 20, 2018 VCAM 201 Haverford College. Participatory ecology refers to a kind of grassroots movement and to a kind research. As practice, participatory ecology can be a form of politics or a flight from politics. As research, participatory ecology can serve communities and movements, or extract value from them in the service of others. This symposium brings together researchers, practitioners, and movement activists, each of whom defy easy categorization. We will use this unique forum as an opportunity to hash out the ways in which our visions for collective liberation can be realized in the strategies and practices of our movements and movement-embedded research.

Hurford ’60 Center for the Arts and Humanities https://www.haverford.edu/hcah/events/center/beyond-the-grassroots All events in VCAM 201 unless otherwise noted.  Art by Chloe Wang
