Scott Ainslie in Concert

As a traditional musician with expertise in Piedmont and Delta Blues as well as Southern Appalachian fiddle and banjo traditions, Ainslie has specialized in performing and presenting programs on the European and African roots of American music and culture in community and educational settings. Ainslie came of age during the Civil Rights era, and cultivated a powerful affinity for cross-cultural exchange. He has studied with elder musicians on both sides of the color line – in the Old-Time Southern Appalachian fiddle and banjo traditions, as well as Black Gospel and Blues. He plays this music with affection, authority, and power. His performances present a wonderful palette of sounds and stories that will delight the ear, awaken the mind, and satisfy the heart.

"Why is Sectarian Conflict on the Rise in the Middle East?" A lecture by Danny Postel

As the Middle East descends further and further into a maelstrom of violence and state breakdown, the new conventional wisdom in Western media and policy circles attributes the turmoil to supposedly ancient sectarian hatreds, primordial forces that make violent conflict inevitable and intractable. In this narrative, “sectarianism” possesses trans-historical causal power and serves as a catch-all explanation for the troubles plaguing the region. In this presentation, Danny Postel, Assistant Director of the Middle East and North African Studies Program at Northwestern University, will challenge this new conventional wisdom and suggest an alternative explanation for the recent spike in sectarian violence in the Middle East. He will show how various conflicts in the region have morphed from non-sectarian (and cross-sectarian) and nonviolent movements into sectarian battles and civil wars.
