Eric Schlosser, Bestselling Author of Fast Food Nation & Command and Control
Eric Schlosser explores subjects ignored by the mainstream media and tries to give a voice to people at the margins of society. As an investigative journalist, he’s followed the harvest with migrant farm workers in California, spent time with meatpacking workers in Texas and Colorado, told the stories of marijuana growers and pornographers and the victims of violent crime, gone on duty with the New York Police Department Bomb Squad, and visited prisons throughout the United States. His aim is to shed light on worlds that are too often hidden. His work defies easy categorization, earning praise from a wide variety of publications like the Nation, Fortune, The Financial Times, and the National Review.

Maria T.D. Inocencio and Mark R. Smith: Loss of Material Evidence
Loss of Material Evidence comprises work resulting from an ongoing conversation between collaborators and life partners, Maria T. D. Inocencio and Mark R. Smith, about the aging and passing of their parents. Through new work created specifically for this exhibition—some works made collaboratively and others made by the individual artists—Inocencio and Smith investigate the dispersion and disposal of material possessions—long associated with specific experiences or periods of time—from their family homes. The exhibition will examine topics such as loss, remembrance, legacy, the passage of time, and the making of art as a means to process grief through abstract visual language.until December 9

Criminal Justice Up Close
From Jailhouse Lawyer to Law Student: The Story of Calvin Duncan
At age 19, Calvin Duncan was wrongfully convicted of murder. After serving over 28 years in Angola prison for a crime he did not commit, he was released in 2011. While incarcerated, Mr. Duncan learned the law and offered legal services to hundreds of fellow prisoners, including those on death row. Since his release, he has been awarded a Soros Justice Fellowship to vindicate the rights of incarcerated people and is the program director of The Light of Justice Program, which helps incarcerated people gain access to the courts. Mr. Duncan is now applying to law school. He will discuss his remarkable journey, the challenges that incarcerated people face when trying to litigate from inside prison, and his ongoing efforts to create systemic reform in the indigent defense system.

Free Speech Symposium: Questioning the Marketplace of Ideas
How does “free speech” operate on a private, liberal arts campus? Where are the legal boundaries? How do we make sense of the impact of speech on others, especially in relation to power, equity, and privilege? Where are the tensions between speech and community?
This symposium seeks to explore these questions and more as we situate them in the context of Lewis & Clark College. Join us for a day of discussion and dialogue with students, staff, and faculty from the College of Arts and Sciences, Graduate School of Education and Counseling, Law School, and Common Services.
