Aldrich Lecture in Law, Justice and Society: Mariah Zeisberg (Wed. 1 Apr, 2015 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm)

David H. Aldrich, ’75, Speaker Forum in Law, Justice and Society

“Presidential War Powers”

University of Michigan political scientist Mariah Zeisberg is the invited guest for Albion College's 2015 Aldrich Lecture in Law, Justice and Society. Her presentation takes places Wednesday, April 1, at 7 p.m. in the Albion College Library Wendell Will Room.
Associate professor of political science at the University of Michigan, Zeisberg's primary research interests lie in constitutional theory, philosophy of law, liberal and democratic theory, and American political development. She is interested in the challenge that subjectivity, pluralism, and institutionally-rooted conflict pose to liberal ideas about political authority, which she addresses through research specifically on US constitutional practice. Zeisberg received her Ph.D. from Princeton University. She has been a Tatum Fellow at the University of Texas at Austin School of Law and, before arriving at Michigan, was a postdoctoral fellow at Brown University's Political Theory Project.

The Aldrich Speaker Forum honors the life and memory of David Aldrich, '75, a trial lawyer and chair of the Litigation Practice Group at Foster, Swift, Collins & Smith P.C., where he worked from 1978 until his untimely death in 2006.

This event, sponsored by Albion's Law, Justice and Society program, is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Albion College Law, Justice and Society program director Bill Rose, wrose@albion.edu, 517/629-0414.

Theatre Presents New Skirmish in Battle of Sexes 'Lysistrata' (-)

The classic comedy "Lysistrata" gets a brand-new treatment with Albion College Theatre's production, rearranged by professor Bob Starko. The play runs Thursday, April 9 through Saturday, April 11 at 8 p.m. in the College's Herrick Theatre. A Sunday matinee begins at 2 p.m.

Written by Aristophanes around 400 BC, "Lysistrata" is the battle-of-the-sexes story of women united in their desire for an end to the Peloponnesian wars. Lysistrata and the other women of Greece refuse to sleep with their husbands and lovers until the men begin peace negotiations – inciting a social war while trying to prevent an international one.

Albion theatre professor Bob Starko explained that the original audience for "Lysistrata" saw it as a ludicrous farce, while more modern productions often focus on its antiwar messages or its very adult humor. "I always felt there was more in the story," Starko explained of his revision. "We didn't take out all the dirty jokes, but I have tried to bring a little more humanity to the characters.

Tickets for "Lysistrata" are $2 and can be reserved by calling 517/629-0433 or emailing theatre@albion.edu.
