The Duke University Departments of Theater, Music and Dance in collaboration with Hoof 'n' Horn proudly present the Tony Award-winning musical Ragtime. Based on the 1975 novel by E. L. Doctorow, Ragtime offers a unique combination of modern musical theater with a classic American music. Ragtime follows three groups in collision at the dawn of 20th Century America. The lives of a family of upper-class WASPs in suburban New York, an African-American couple in Harlem, and a small immigrant family in the Lower East Side all intersect as they all search for success in America. Exhilarating and exciting, Ragtime offers a story for the whole family. Please join us in celebrating this unprecedented partnership as Duke students and faculty pay homage to a fusion of marches, cakewalks, gospel and of course, ragtime.

The two day international workshop will bring together members of a long-term faculty network between Duke and several universities in Germany, Korea, and Singapore. The network investigates regions and regionalism as key topics of academic research which have emerged during the past decade. The conference investigates the regional configurations of "East Asia" on three levels. Firstly, regional ties: after all, processes of interaction and exchange - of goods, people, and ideas - were not confined to nation-states or other political realms, and at the same time they did not necessarily extend across the globe. Secondly, regionalist projects: reaching back into the early modern period, various kinds of historical actors have pursued larger regionalist visions, for example ideas of an East Asian cultural unity. Thirdly, it investigates modern processes of regionalization, at least to some extent, as the products of larger processes of global integration.Organized by Professor Dominic Sachsenmaier.

Wetback follows undocumented migrant workers from their home in Nicaragua across Central America and Mexico to the U.S.-Mexican border, meeting many other migrants along the way. They encounter gangs, vigilantes, corrupt law enforcement, physical danger, and safe havens in their attempt to be among the 10% of migrants who actually make it all the way into North America. The migrants, those who aid them, and those who turn them back all give their own perspectives on how this vast, illegal system trafficking in cheap labor and dreams actually functions, and what its terrible costs and perils are.
Immediately following the screening join us for a panel discussion including North Carolina Rep. Paul Luebke (D), 2011 SAF Fellow Nandini Kumar, and SAF Advocacy and Organizing Director, Nadeen Bir.

18 days. That is what it took for Egyptians to change the course of
history. It is also the title of a collective work on the revolution of
January 25th in Egypt. A group of ten directors, including two
women, and their crews agreed to act fast and shoot ten short films
about the revolution. Ten stories they have experienced, heard or
imagined. With the participation of wellknown
filmmakers such as Yousri Nasrallah, and the new generation of Egyptian filmmakers
like Kamla Abu Zikr, and Ahmad Abdalla, 18 DAYS includes films
about kidnapped revolutionaries, love torn apart and brought
together by the action, citizens motivated to participate and others
frightened enough to lock themselves inside and listen.
