Collective social action movements, whether spontaneous expressions of dissent or high-reaching attempts to change society, have been a part of American life since the nation's earliest days. Protest actions, in the form of boycotts, demonstrations, riots, property destruction, occupations, labor strikes, local activism, or works of art, have spanned the political spectrum, defined generations, and shaped our uniquely American identity.
We invite you to view items from the Oviatt Library's Special Collections and Archives that document dozens of distinct and significant social action movements over the course of the 20th century

New Research on Beliefs about Repressed Memories and False Memories
In this talk the author discusses the phenomena known as the memory wars, and presents on two of his recently published studies. The first part of the talk deals with an apparent gap in beliefs between researchers and practitioners about whether repressed memories happen and can be retrieved in therapy accurately. The second part of the talk deals with what could possibly explain some of the more unusual memories that have been generated in therapies that try to retrieve repressed memories. The author presents data showing that even when you bend over backwards to find participants that are most likely not to be susceptible to false memories, they in fact are. This could be seen as what Karl Popper would have called a "risky experiment"of memory distortion paradigms, an approach of attempted falsification that Popper argued is important in science.

Grammy Award-winner Bela Fleck is quite possibly the premier banjo player in the world. He has virtually reinvented the image and the sound of the banjo through a remarkable performing and recording career that has taken him all over the musical map and on a range of solo projects and collaborations. This performance with Brooklyn Rider is a match made in heaven. Brooklyn Rider's desire to use the rich medium of the string quartet as a vehicle for communication across a large span of history, geography and genres fuses perfectly with Bela Fleck's inventive imagination. This is classical music as reinvented and revived by five forward looking musical innovators.
