Great Lives Lecture: Female Internet Investors presented by author Claire L. Evans @ Dodd Auditorium, George Washington Hall

The Theresa Y. Crawley, D.D.S. Lecture.

The history of technology you probably know is one of men and machines, garages and riches, alpha nerds and brogrammers – but female visionaries have always been at the vanguard of technology and innovation. In fact, women turn up at the very beginning of every important wave in technology. They may have been hidden in plain sight, their inventions and contributions touching our lives in ways we don’t even realize, but they have always been part of the story. In Broad Band: The Untold Story of the Women who Made the Internet (Penguin Random House), Claire L. Evans finally gives these unsung female heroes their due with her insightful social history of the women who made the Internet what it is today.

Guys and Dolls by Frank Loesser, Jo Swerling, & Abe Burrows
In this beloved 1950s musical comedy, dice-slinging gamblers, pious missionaries, and glamorous show girls come together for a light-hearted romp through New York. It’s a high stakes game of love as brazen and charming Nathan Detroit bets Sky Masterson $1,000 to woo missionary Sarah Brown. Meanwhile, cabaret singer Adelaide tries to convince Nathan, her fiancé of 14 years, to finally tie the knot. A classic musical, Guys and Dolls features the showstoppers “Luck be a Lady,” “Sit Down, You’re Rockin’ the Boat,” “Take Back Your Mink,” and others.

Great Lives Lecture: America’s Notorious Pirates presented by author Eric Jay Dolan @ Dodd Auditorium, George Washington Hall Tickets
Mar 19 @ 7:30 pm
Great Lives Lecture: America's Notorious Pirates presented by author Eric Jay Dolan @ Dodd Auditorium, George Washington Hall

The Sodexo Lecture.

Set against the backdrop of the Age of Exploration, Black Flags, Blue Waters: The Epic History of America’s Most Notorious Pirates reveals the dramatic and surprising history of American piracy’s “Golden Age”—spanning the late 1600s through the early 1700s—when lawless pirates plied the coastal waters of North America and beyond. In his slide show and presentation, Eric Jay Dolin will illustrate how American colonists at first supported these outrageous pirates in an early display of colonial solidarity against the Crown, and then violently opposed them. Through engrossing episodes of roguish glamour and extreme brutality, Dolin depicts the star pirates of this period, including towering Blackbeard, as well as pirates whose stories are less familiar, but whose despicable deeds are often just as riveting. Upending popular misconceptions and cartoonish stereotypes, Dolin provides this wholly original account of the seafaring outlaws whose raids reflect the precarious nature of American colonial life.
