Learning to be Loyal: Political Education in China and Russia
March 30
This talk explores how China and Russia use schools to socialize students and the future elite to be patriotic; whether these strategies free those in power from the need to be politically accountable; and when and why political education turns to cultural and ethnic identity as opposed to economic and ideological principles to foster national unity and popular legitimacy.
Noon, Northwestern University

Baseball: It’s Not Nuclear Physics—Or Is It?
March 30
Dr Alan Nathan spent a career doing experimental nuclear physics, where he studied the high-speed collisions of subatomic particles. These days he spends his time working on the physics of baseball, studying the not-so-high-speed collisions of baseballs with bats, among other things. And believe it or not, many of the same principles that apply to the former also apply to the latter. He will provide a flavor for that in this talk by telling us about some of the interesting physics apparent to him each and every time he watches a game.
6pm, C2ST
