Global Challenges to Human Rights Today
From refugee crises and global poverty to rigged elections, growing populism—and the intolerance and oppression it breeds, we are at a pivotal moment in history as the contempt for human rights spreads. Prince Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein of Jordan, former U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights, is known for his outspoken criticism of the fascism, religious radicalism, and threats to civil liberties growing in countries around the world. Following his approval by the U.N. General Assembly in 2014, he became the sixth High Commissioner for Human Rights and was the first Arab and Muslim to hold the post.

Better Angels: Documentary Film Screening and Discussion
At a time when the world’s two acknowledged superpowers seem to be moving towards economic and political conflict, a new feature documentary explores how the destiny of both countries became so deeply and inextricably intertwined. By examining the day-to-day lives of ordinary Chinese and American citizens, this feature-length documentary asks: Can the United States survive the rise of China? Is confrontation inevitable? Produced over five years, shot on four continents, and created with the participation of three U.S. Secretaries of State, the documentary captures compelling stories that highlight the global stakes, challenges and opportunities of the world’s most important bilateral relationship. A Q & A and discussion with former Congressman David Dreier ’75 and the film’s producer William Mundell will follow the screening. Source and art: Adapted wholly from https://betterangels.film/

Latin American Intellectuals in Pre-War Paris: The modernistas and their Literary Magazines
The 19th century saw the literary movement and social network we know as Spanish-American Modernismo emerge largely from the pages of international periodicals. Sarah Moody, associate professor of Spanish at the University of Alabama, examines the editorial choices of two magazines, Mundial Magazine and its ladies’ counterpart, Elegancias--both exported from Europe for consumption in Latin America--and compares their gendered portrayals of Paris to demonstrate how a certain type of modernity was purposefully "marketed" to Latin Americans at a key moment of engagement with globalization and especially with gendered, Parisian styles of being in modernity that suggested a possible future for Latin Americans' modern desires.
