12:00PM 02:00PM George Washington Opens the U.S.-Mexico Border: Department / Organization: Religion Department Building/Room: Psychology Building Meeting Organizer/Sponsor: Religion Department Speaker/Presenter: Dr. Elaine A. Peña Event Open To: All (Public) Cost: Free Contact Name: Gabi Kocerha Contact Email: gkocerh@emory.edu Link: http://religion.emory.edu/home/news/calendar.html This presentation examines how events at the U.S. Mexico border such as toll-disagreements, climactic disasters (1954 Hurricane Alice), and inoperable, mismanaged infrastructure deepen strained relations of inequality and disparity between the two countries. It focuses on ritual and festive crisis resolution strategies deployed as part of the initiative known as paso libre (open border), promoted as part of the Washington’s Birthday Celebration’s annual International Bridge Ceremony (est. 1898). Drawing on extensive ethnographic and archival research that includes uncatalogued documents, it captures how the act of physically meeting in the middle of the bridge paired with the long-standing cross-border social and cultural expectations attached to the ritual not only made paso libre possible, but also sustainable (1957-1975). Engaging scholarly work in Latinx Studies, Geography of Religion, Hemispheric American Studies, and Comparative Border Studies, this talk shows how performative strategies such as this facilitate communication across federal, municipal, and civil society channels and make stakeholders out of an international public. + PAIS 290 Campus Events

07:30PM 07:30PM Spring Play: Ada and the Engine: School: Oxford College Department / Organization: Oxford College Building/Room: Tarbutton Performing Arts Center Cost: $5/person Contact Name: Danielle Dockery Contact Email: danielle.dockery@emory.edu Oxford College will present the play "Ada and the Engine" by Lauren Gunderson. Ada Byron is a curious young woman and mathematician who is being pushed for a prestigious marriage by her mother, who is hoping to repair their damaged reputation set by the late Lord Byron, Ada’s father. However, when Ada meets Charles Babbage, her interest is spiked. He seems like her perfect match – he’s a scholar and a dreamer, but their age difference prevents their friendship from becoming anything more. Despite Ada’s marriage to Lord Lovelace, Babbage’s model of the Analytical Engine creates a long-lasting partnership between the two scientists that causes their deplored love for each other to be kept aflame. The cast and technical crew, composed entirely of students, is directed by Nick Fesette. Jessie Rivers coordinates the sets, lighting, and sound. Tickets are $5 per person. Reserve your tickets at oxford.emory.edu/oxboxoffice. Post-show discussion to be held March 22. This play is presented as part of a special exhibition "Reviving Ada." Presented in conjunction with the Atlanta Science Festival, this interactive gallery features multi-media displays curated by Oxford students celebrating female contributions to math and science. The gallery will be Feb. 28-March 23 in Tarbutton Lobby. This is an Oxford Studies event. + Oxford College Campus Events
