Throughout the continent of Africa, people use cloth to speak for them. Whether the fabric represents religious affiliation, age, class status, ethnic membership, or political association, what one wears is one’s identity. Woven or dyed, imported or locally produced, wrapped, tied, or tailored—all clothing speaks clearly in the many African languages. Demonstrating ancient traditions or contemporary fads, African peoples use cloth to celebrate the vibrancy of life’s rituals from birth to death. Co-curated by Philip Peek, professor emeritus of anthropology at Drew University, and Anthropology of Religion, Ritual, and Myth students.

Who Has a Megaphone? Who Speaks in a Whisper?: Unequal Political Voice and the Broken Promise of American Democracy 

While inequalities of income are currently in the spotlight, political inequality receives much less attention.  A basic tenet of democracy is that the preferences and needs of all citizens should receive equal consideration.  Political voice—expressed when citizens vote, get in touch with public officials, protest, join organizations that take stands in politics, make political contributions, or otherwise take part in political life—informs policy makers of citizen preferences and needs.

Policymakers do not hear from everybody, and the people and political organizations they do hear from are not representative of the American public.  Those who express political voice, especially those who make financial contributions, are, on average, better educated and more affluent, and since the Supreme Court has taken the lid of campaign contributions, those with deep pockets are poised to speak even more loudly in politics.  If political voice is unequal, then democratic equality is jeopardized.

Kay Schlozman is the J. Joseph Moakley Professor of Political Science at Boston College and author of The Unheavenly Chorus: Unequal Political Voice and the Broken Promise of American Democracy.

All Sidore lectures are free and open to the public. Tickets are required and may be picked up at the Silver Center Box Office. Reservations are recommended: call (603) 535-ARTS. A reception with light refreshments follows each lecture.

For their second North American tour, the wonderful British ensemble Voice presents a program of songs exploring the beauty, heartache, and humor of love. The repertoire ranges from the devotional songs of the medieval German abbess Hildegard of Bingen, whose soaring lines express spiritual love and her deep empathy with the natural world and female form to the comedy and melancholy in ballads, sonnets, and catches from Shakespeare’s time. Traditional songs from the British Isles telling stories both bitter and sweet and Voice’s own arrangements and commissions will round out the program.  Love, in all its forms, has inspired human beings for centuries, and it is brought to life through the immediacy and resonance of the human voice—and there are none more beautiful than these three.
