AMERICAN HOLIDAYS SERIES: SPORTING AMERICA

Tuesday, February 22 @ 12 p.m.
Corry Higher Education Council 
Featuring JES Scholar-in-Residence, Andrew Roth, Ph.D.

In this episode, American Holidays explores Sporting America – its history and development, the changing meaning of the word sport, and the cultural revolution of the "sports" that America celebrates. From horse racing in colonial America to today's Triple Crown, from the "rumble and tumble" of 19th-century fist fighting to mixed-martial arts, from Harry Wright's Cincinnati Red Stockings to today's MLB, from Princeton versus Rutgers to today's College Football Playoffs, from James Naismith hanging a peach basket in the Springfield, Massachusetts YMCA to today's Final Four and NBA Finals, from the Canton Bulldogs and the first "Super Bowl" to today's mega-event NFL championship and many other stops in between, we'll explore the meaning of sports in American life and how Americans celebrate "their sporting life."

AFGHANISTAN UNDER THE TALIBAN 2.0: WHAT DOES THE FUTURE HOLD?

Wednesday, February 23 @ 7 p.m.
Jefferson Educational Society 
Featuring JES Scholar-in-Residence, Baher Ghosheh, Ph.D. 

After 20 years of war, the U.S. occupation of Afghanistan has ended, The U.S., having fought for two decades, spent trillions of dollars and sacrificed thousands of American lives and thousands more injured before leaving Afghanistan to an uncertain future. The Taliban took over the government and country much faster than our military and regional experts expected. How will Afghanistan fare under the "new" Taliban rule? Will the gains achieved in education, health care, women's rights, and democratization be preserved or are they vanishing with the departing foreign troops? Will the Taliban allow Al Qaeda, and ISIS to use the country as a base of operations again?
