Lecture now on Tuesday, November 14.  No war since the American Civil War has seared the U.S. national consciousness like Vietnam. The controversies surrounding it tore the nation apart, and its legacies continue to shape our understanding of the past and the present. The war forced Americans to ask fundamental questions about their country’s role in the world and its use of power. This talk examines the place of the Vietnam War in the nation’s history and traces its meaning and legacies. Robert. K. Brigham, Shirley Ecker Boskey Professor of History and International Relations, joined the Vassar faculty in 1994. He is a specialist on the history of U.S. foreign policy, particularly the Vietnam War and negotiations to end deadly conflict.

Conflict in the South China Sea.   The South China Sea is a locus of competing territorial claims, and China its most vocal claimant. Beijing’s interest has intensified disputes with other countries in the region in recent years, especially since China has increased its naval presence. Despite rising international pressure, including an unfavorable ruling by the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea, China staunchly defends its policies in the region. Preventing tensions from boiling over is a matter of careful diplomacy.  Facilitator: Matthew Murray, WACMHV and Dutchess Community College.

No war since the American Civil War has seared the U.S. national consciousness like Vietnam. The controversies surrounding it tore the nation apart, and its legacies continue to shape our understanding of the past and the present. The war forced Americans to ask fundamental questions about their country’s role in the world and its use of power. This talk examines the place of the Vietnam War in the nation’s history and traces its meaning and legacies. Robert. K. Brigham, Shirley Ecker Boskey Professor of History and International Relations, joined the Vassar faculty in 1994. He is a specialist on the history of U.S. foreign policy, particularly the Vietnam War and negotiations to end deadly conflict.

The Civil Rights Movement served as an inspiration and, at times, ally of the anti-war movement. What were the intersections between the fight for racial justice and opposition to the Vietnam War? From early statements of the Students for a Democratic Society to Martin Luther King, Jr.s 1967 "Beyond Vietnam" speech, anti-racism and opposition to the Cold War drew political and tactical inspiration from one another, each side refining its message in relation to the other. We will look at several key speeches and demonstrations from the 1960s and early 1970s to better understand these intersections.  Lee Bernstein is Professor of History at SUNY New Paltz, where he has taught since 2004.

The public is welcome to attend the Friends of the Poughkeepsie Public Library District's Annual Meeting, starting at 6 pm, with light refreshments to follow.  The guest speaker Andrew Coe will take the podium at 7 pm.

Author Andrew Coe co-wrote the book 'A Square Meal: A Culinary History of the Great Depression' with his wife Jane Ziegelman. The book traces America's culinary history from the 1930s to the present.

The Great Depression certainly crushed America’s economy and destroyed lives. But its societal wreckage also included the decimation of something far more basic. The habit of a regular meal, or any meal, died for many. 'A Square Meal' details how the FDR food programs did more than relieve hunger. At the behest of Eleanor Roosevelt, the initiative incorporated nutritional requirements and spawned the advent of corporate food production – the foundation of today’s food economy and expectations of health from diet.
