Exhibition: An American Town in WWI (thru April 30))

04.13.18 at 1:00 PM - Edgell Memorial Library
3 Oak St, Framingham, MA 01701
Website
Free FHC members, $5 nonmembers, $2 students

Why do many of us know so little about WWI? Perhaps because America entered the war during its last year? Or is it because few understood shell shock and how to process the horrors of the trenches? While WWII is known for the “greatest generation,” WWI produced the “lost generation.” But WWI is not lost to Framingham. As the centenary of Armistice approaches in November this exhibit features seven local men and women whose stories speak to the larger forces at play in the first war that engulfed the world. Innovations around flight and technology, the impact of the influenza pandemic, pacifism and suffrage are just some of the threads tying Framingham to WWI. Hours: Wednesday – Saturday, 1-4pm

Presented by Stacen Goldman In the early fall of 2017, while developing the upcoming World War I exhibition, Framingham History Center Curator Stacen Goldman discovered the unfinished, unpublished manuscript of Gordon Ware, a Framingham resident and volunteer ambulance driver during the Great War. Both funny and poignant, Ware’s writing offers insight into service on World War I’s “Forgotten Front” in the Balkans—a place where virtually no American service men set foot. Join Stacen as she discusses finding Ware’s manuscript in the FHC Collections, the impact it had on developing the World War I exhibition, and Gordon’s story itself. Her talk will be presented alongside exclusive photographs and readings from this unfinished work of Framingham’s own “Lost Generation” voice.

Censors at Work: How States Shaped Literature

03.05.19 at 4:30 PM - Wellesley College
106 Central Street, Wellesley 02481
Website
Free Admission

The difficulty with the history of censorship is that it looks so simple: It pits oppression against freedom of expression. But if one looks harder, it appears more complicated—and full of surprises. How did censors actually do their work? How did they understand it? And how did it fit into the surrounding social and political context? By studying the day-to-day operations of censors under three authoritarian regimes—Bourbon France in the 18th century, British India in the 19th century, and Communist East Germany in the 20th century—it is possible to rethink our understanding of censorship in general. 

Robert Darnton taught at Princeton from 1968 until 2007, when he became the Carl H. Pforzheimer University Professor and director of the University Library at Harvard.

A Story of Nerpa: Indigenous People and Baikal Seals in Eastern Siberia

03.05.19 at 7:30 PM - Wellesley College
106 Central Street, Wellesley 02481
Website
Free

The Russian Area Studies program presents a lecture by Dr. Tatiana Nomokonova, research assistant at the University of Alberta, on Lake Baikal archaeology. The sacred sea of Siberia, Lake Baikal, is home to the world’s only wholly freshwater seal, known locally as nerpa. This animal has had meaningful relationships with indigenous groups living on the lake’s shores, both in the present and in the far distant past. Images of the Baikal seal are present in rock art panels, and bones of nerpa have been found at habitation sites, human cemeteries, and sites of sacrificial offerings, the earliest of which is at least 10,000 years old. Importantly, hunting for nerpa remains a living tradition at Lake Baikal, where seal hunters and their families strive to maintain their relationships with their quarry by staying in good standing with the spiritual master and other local spirits, and through hunting, cooking, consuming, and sharing parts from this unique animal.
