TUESDAY, JUNE 4
Noon–1:30 p.m. (Eastern Time)
Webinar: A Cold War of Cultures

This webinar will be presented by Professor Janine Ludwig, academic director of Dickinson’s Bremen program. She is a literary scholar, vice head of the Institute for Cultural German Studies (ifkud) at the University of Bremen and chairwoman of the International Heiner Müller Society.

On Russian state TV, propagandists constantly declare a Cold War 2.0 against Western culture. They claim to fight in Ukraine not against their neighboring country, but against the “collective West,” led by the “American hegemon.”

During this webinar, take a look back on the Cold War of the 20th century to see if any of the lessons learned then could be applied today. For example, it is widely understood that the Cold War was won in an economics and arms race. But another important aspect was the Western influence of pop and everyday culture. After all, the two blocs each proclaimed that a specific way of life was attached to their political system as they fought for the hearts and minds of people. Participants will look at how rock and roll helped end the Cold War, specifically how the GDR lost the fight against rock music from the West. Then, participants will examine how Russia today tries to decouple its citizens from Western culture (and provide a new, yet highly inconsistent ideology), and will consider how the West might counter this.

Alumni Academy Day 1
Dickinson’s new Alumni Academy welcomes alumni back to the campus classroom. Come back to Carlisle to dive into unique topics with incredible Dickinson faculty and alumni. Enjoy lectures, hands-on learning and local excursions that provide a unique look at exciting topics over a two-day intensive experience.

Art, Sustainability and Local Clay 
Course led by Rachel Eng, Assistant Professor of Art & Art History 
Almost every society that had access to clay formed a ceramics tradition, which speaks to the universal quality of this art form and to enduring human curiosity and creativity. Participants will consider how far materials travel while hand-building ceramic planters using local clay from the College Farm.

This workshop will include a field trip to the College Farm, where participants will see where the clay comes from and think about place and locality. You will also learn about the steps to process local clay and about clay as a medium for artistic expression. No prior experience is necessary, as there will be instruction on hand building and techniques for using slip to decorate the surface. Pickup for finished pieces will be on Sunday, June 8, between 10 a.m. and noon.
$250 per person
Preregistration is required. Space is limited (11 people).
Breakfast and lunch on Friday, June 7, and transportation is included.

Carlisle Indian Industrial School, Dickinson College and Institutional Responsibility
Course led by John Truden, Postdoctoral Fellow in Native American & Indigenous Studies 
Between 1879 and 1980, the U.S. government operated a series of forced reeducation camps designed to wipe out Native American cultures and identities. Dickinson College closely supported the first and most prominent of these institutions, the Carlisle Indian Industrial School (1879-1918).

In 2023 Dickinson established the Center for the Futures of Native Peoples with a generous grant from the Mellon Foundation. Among other goals, the CFNP is designed to address the relationship between the college and Carlisle Indian Industrial School. At the time of this writing, the center had already hosted a number of visiting tribal delegations; brought prominent Indigenous intellectuals, activists, journalists, artists and luminaries to campus; built an NAIS lending library; and begun a faculty group to discuss Indigenous issues. By Alumni Weekend, the center will have also hosted the first annual Central Pennsylvania Native American and Indigenous Studies Symposium in April.  

In this two-day seminar, you will contemplate longstanding ties between the two institutions, what a reckoning might look like and how to move forward together as a community.
$200 per person
Preregistration is required. Space is limited (18 people). Breakfast and lunch on Friday, June 7 and transportation for the course is included.

The Soil as a “Critical Zone”
Course led by Ben Edwards, Professor of Geosciences and Moraine Chair in Arctic Studies 
Soils are the locations where many of earth’s different systems intersect to form what has recently been described at the “critical zone.” They are mainly made of minerals that were once parts of rocks (~50 percent), but soils also can hold water from the hydrosphere (up to 25 percent), gases from the atmosphere (~25 percent) and biological things, both living and deceased (generally less than 10 percent).  

In this two-day class, we will experience soils from four different perspectives: on a hike in the region, in the field via a field trip to the Dickinson College Farm, in the Kaufman earth materials laboratory and in the geosciences geospatial laboratory. This class will utilize drone photography and cutting-edge lab equipment. Come prepared to get dirty while diving into this fascinating area of geoscience. 
$200 per person 
Preregistration is required. Space is limited (11 people).
Breakfast and lunch on Friday, June 7 and transportation for the course is included.

Alumni College Sessions

  • Benjamin Franklin, Joseph Priestley and William Petty, Lord Shelburne: Master Propagandists in the Cause of American Liberty
    Session led by Harry Lewis ’74
    Joseph Priestley, an English chemist and discoverer of oxygen, was a close friend of Benjamin Franklin, who got Priestley started in his scientific career and persuaded Anglo-Irish aristocrat and British-opposition leader William Petty, Lord Shelburne, to employ him. In addition to writing books about science, while in Shelburne’s employ, Priestley wrote best-selling books and articles, in the London newspapers and elsewhere, supporting the American cause both before and during the American Revolution. Priestley’s secret correspondence with Franklin during the war, written on behalf of Shelburne, was intercepted by a British spy and then publicly exposed, leading to a nearly deadly duel in Hyde Park.

    Hear the dramatic story firsthand and learn about Dickinson’s own Priestley connection through the perspective of Priestley’s close friend and associate, Thomas Cooper, from whom Dickinson purchased Priestley’s chemical equipment for student use on campus. The college then hired Cooper as the first chair of Dickinson’s chemistry department.
