• Martin Puchner on Story in the Public Square

    Martin Puchner on Story in the Public Square

    Air Dates: March 24-26, 2018

    This show—Story in the Public Square—is built on one central insight: that stories have the power to change the world. Martin Puchner is a scholar of the impact stories have had on minds around the world, and on human history itself.

    Puchner is the Byron and Anita Wien Professor of English and Comparative Literature at Harvard University. He is also a prize-winning author, educator, public speaker, and institution builder in the arts and humanities. Puchner’s writing, which include a dozen books and anthologies and over sixty articles and essays, range from philosophy and theater to world literature and have been translated into many languages. Through his best-selling Norton Anthology of World Literature and his HarvardX course, Masterpieces of World Literature, he has brought four thousand years of literature to audiences across the globe. In hundreds of lectures and workshops from the Arctic Circle to Brazil and from the Middle East to China, he has advocated for the arts and humanities in a changing world.

    At Harvard, he has instituted these ideas in a new program in theater, dance and media as well as in the Mellon School of Theater and Performance Research. A native of Germany, he spent summers in high school in England and the U.S. and has lived in the U.S.

    His latest book is The Written World: The Power of Stories to Shape People, History, Civilization, from Random House. It won advanced praise from Margaret Atwood, and Publishers Weekly called it “A gripping intellectual odyssey.” And many other publications around the globe praised it, too.

    Story in the Public Square” airs on Rhode Island PBS in Rhode Island and southern Massachusetts on Sundays at 11 a.m. and is rebroadcast Thursdays at 7:30 p.m. An audio version of the program airs Saturdays at 8:30 a.m. & 8:30 p.m. ET, Sundays at 1:30 p.m. ET, and Mondays at 2:30 a.m. ET on SiriusXM’s popular P.O.T.U.S. (Politics of the United States), channel 124.

  • The Indian Ocean in France’s Global Defense Strategy by Iskander Rehman

    Rehman on the Indian Ocean in France’s Global Defense Strategy

    On January 18, 2018, the Center for Naval Analyses (CNA) convened a roundtable to discuss France’s strategic interests in the Indian Ocean. Nilanthi Samaranayake, Director of CNA’s Indian Ocean and South Asia Security Program, framed the discussion by noting the expanding role of extraregional actors operating in the Indian Ocean, including Japan, China, and France. The United States, Japan, India, and Australia have revamped their “Quad” discussions over the past year. However, Ms. Samaranayake noted, France has a range of territorial, economic, and security interests in the Indian Ocean, and the roundtable offered an opportunity to examine those interests and potential opportunities to deepen U.S.-French cooperation in the region. Admiral James Foggo, Commander, U.S. Naval Forces Europe and Commander, U.S. Naval Forces Africa, was not able to participate personally in the roundtable but he sent remarks highlighting the strategic alliance between the U.S. and French navies and urging that the existing robust “esprit de corps” be harnessed to promote maritime security and regional stability in the Indian Ocean. ADM Foggo advanced several specific suggestions for U.S.-French naval cooperation in the region, including exploring new opportunities and venues to engage with China’s navy, especially in East Africa and the wider Indian Ocean; inviting India to observe (and later participate in) the CUTLASS EXPRESS exercise sponsored by U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM) and executed by U.S. Naval Forces Africa; and building on France’s newly formalized strategic relationships with India, Australia, and South Africa. ADM Foggo’s statement follows. The principal speaker at the January 18 CNA roundtable was French security policy expert Dr. Iskander Rehman, Senior Fellow for International Relations at the Pell Center for International Relations and Public Policy at Salve Regina University in Rhode Island. Dr. Rehman’s paper concludes this document.

    As Dr. Rehman explained, among the growing number of states with a presence in the Indian Ocean, France has a fairly unique position as a European Union member which is also a nation of the Indian Ocean Rim. La Réunion and Mayotte, former colonies of France acquired in the late 17th century / early 18th century, are now departments of France. Today, more than 1.5 million French citizens and 130,000 French expatriates live in the Indo-Pacific region, where France has significant commercial and strategic interests.

    Dr. Rehman noted that French investment capital in the Indo-Pacific is four times greater than Asian investments in France. In the Indian Ocean, France delineates two strategic theaters: the Persian Gulf and Gulf of Aden; and the Southwest Indian Ocean. From inter-service military bases in Djibouti and Abu Dhabi, France pursues a range of missions, including: countering terrorism; fighting ISIS; containing Iran’s ambitions; fulfilling informal security guarantees to Gulf state partners; ensuring the free flow of shipping; and projecting force into the Indian Ocean.

    In the Southwest Indian Ocean, France seeks to defend French national territory and French citizens in La Réunion and Mayotte and a vast exclusive 2 economic zone associated with uninhabited island territories in the Mozambique Channel and the remote Southern Ocean.

    Dr. Rehman pointed out that, with over 30,000 troops deployed and ongoing operations in a number of theaters, France’s operational ability was currently stretched thin. Nevertheless, as a middle power with global outreach, France is committed to contributing to the security of the region.
    Key roles in the Indo-Pacific which the French military exercises alone and in coordination with the United States include:
    • Shaping the regional balance of power through capacity building and strategically driven arms sales
    • Conducting maritime rescue and disaster relief
    • Upholding informal security guarantees to certain Gulf States vis-à-vis Iran
    • Bolstering U.S. counterterrorism, intelligence, and counter-proliferation efforts along an arc of instability from Dakar to Peshawar
    • Helping secure critical straits and chokepoints, including the Mozambique channel

    To augment its regional presence, France has sought to establish a series of ambitious strategic partnerships—the most significant of which is with India. In recent years, Dr. Rehman noted that France has shown a greater willingness to criticize China’s regional behavior, while elevating its relationship with Japan and embarking on a newly enhanced partnership with Australia.

  • Jacquelyn Schneider on Story in the Public Square

    The future of warfare & unmanned systems with Jacquelyn Schneider

    Air Dates: March 17-18, 2018

    The intermingling of traditional and emerging security challenges demands fresh thinking from a new generation of scholars and practitioners—guest Jacquelyn Schneider tells us that some of those new thinkers and new soldiers will not look like their predecessors.

    Schneider is a graduate of Columbia University, an Air Force veteran, and now, an assistant professor at the U.S. Naval War College whose scholastic expertise includes cybersecurity and cyberwarfare, political psychology and human interaction with technology, notably unmanned weaponry such as drones. Her work, often co-authored with Julia Macdonald of the University of Denver, has been published in many national-security and defense journals, and mainstream media such as The Washington Post.

    Schneider is known for her out-of-the-box thinking, which has sometimes put her at odds with some more “traditional” members of America’s military and defense communities. However, given the Naval War College’s atmosphere of academic freedom under President Rear Admiral Jeffrey A. Harley, she has what she describes as “cover” for her contrarian views.

    In addition to her bachelor’s degree in economics and political science from Columbia, Schneider holds a master’s degree in political science from Arizona State University and a doctorate in political science from George Washington University. She joined the faculty at the Naval War College in 2016.

    Story in the Public Square” airs on Rhode Island PBS in Rhode Island and southern Massachusetts on Sundays at 11 a.m. and is rebroadcast Thursdays at 7:30 p.m. An audio version of the program airs Saturdays at 8:30 a.m. & 8:30 p.m. ET, Sundays at 1:30 p.m. ET, and Mondays at 2:30 a.m. ET on SiriusXM’s popular P.O.T.U.S. (Politics of the United States), channel 124.

  • Jacob Groshek, professor of emerging media studies at Boston University on Story in the Public Square

    Twitter, television, and the 2016 Election with Jacob Groshek

    Air Dates: March 10-11, 2018

    Conventional wisdom tells us that Donald Trump’s campaign benefited mightily from his use of Twitter. However, conventional wisdom and the truth are not always synonymous. Jacob Groshek’s research shows it was not the Tweets themselves, but the television coverage they generated that shaped the 2016 election.

    Dr. Groshek’s is a professor of emerging media studies at Boston University. His research focuses on the democratic utility of communication technologies and the ways in which the structure, content and uses of online and mobile media may influence sociopolitical change. Additional research pursuits include applied econometric analyses, data mining and visualizing social media content. In that area, Dr. Groshek oversees a cloud-based software system, the BU-TCAT, which makes it possible for all BU faculty and students to study social media in big and small data approaches. He also leads workshops in Making Social Media Matter that are available to the general public to earn a Certificate in Social Media Analysis: Principles and Practices for Big Data from Boston University in just 3 days. Dr. Groshek also runs a social media consultancy and is regularly featured in national and international media coverage.

    He has over 45 peer-reviewed publications since earning his PhD at Indiana University in 2008 under the supervision of Professor David H. Weaver. Some of his most notable work is featured in Journal of Communication, New Media & Society, Social Scientific Computer Review, and in volumes published by Oxford and Routledge, among others. Dr. Groshek also sits on the editorial boards of Communication Yearbook and the Journal of Information Technology and Politics and regularly reviews for more than a dozen journals. He recently completed his term as head of the communication technology division of the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication (AEJMC) and he has received top paper awards at the faculty and student levels in international competitions.

    Executive Director, Jim Ludes participating in public history event

    Myth, Memory, History and Heritage

    History Space, a joint program of the Newport and Rhode Island Historical Societies present an exploration for public historians.

    Newport, RI – On Friday, March 23, 2018 10am-12pm at Newport’s Colony House, Washington Square, Newport, RI, History Space, a joint program of the Newport and Rhode Island Historical Societies presents Myth, Memory, History and Heritage,” a panel of public historians.

    “Basically all democratic theory is built around the idea people have a roughly accurate and shared view of what’s going on. What if they don’t?” – Ezra Klein (2017)

    The panel will discuss, for an audience of practitioners and the public, questions about how members of a large and diverse “we” perceive the past, and how differences in perspective can have consequences when we try to wrestle with current issues together. How can historic site managers and other public historians approach the myths that families and populations have repeated for generations when scholarship reveals something different? How should we approach cultural differences in how we think about the past? What roles can historical societies play in improving the level of historical literacy in our audiences (and why do we care)?

    Reservations are required. Please RSVP to hrockwood@newporthistorical.org.

    I know I’m not alone in marveling at the work talented photographers do; the composition; the courage to go after stories; the ability to frame a subject is a skill more than “pointing and shooting” a camera.  This week’s guest, Maddie McGarvey, does it better than most.

    Maddie McGarvey is a freelance photographer based in Columbus, Ohio. She graduated from Ohio University’s School of Visual Communication in 2012 with a degree in Photojournalism, interned at the San Francisco Chronicle in 2011, and worked as a staff photographer at the Burlington Free Press in Vermont before returning to the Midwest.

    In 2014 she was named an Emerging Talent for Getty Reportage and in 2015 was selected as one of Magnum’s 30

  • Gabriela Domenzain on Story in the Public Square

    Gabriela Domenzain on “Story in the Public Square”

    Air Dates: February 17-18, 2018

    The politics of immigration reform in the United States are front and center today, with calls for a wall on America’s southern border and news of more aggressive enforcement by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents. Gabriela Domenzain reminds us that these aren’t just policy debates—these are people’s lives we’re debating.

    The daughter of Mexican immigrant doctors, Domenzain was raised in Miami, where the Spanish and English languages and Hispanic culture were the backdrop. Domenzain spent some of her early years in Mexico, her parents’ native land, before returning home to Miami.

    Two years after earning a degree in public policy from the University of Chicago in 1998, she was hired by the National Council of La Raza, the Hispanic advocacy organization now known as UnidosUS. She stayed two years, then was recruited to work as an associate producer for a film crew that was making an HBO documentary series involving immigration, “My American Dream: How Democracy Works Now.” From late 2003 until the summer of 2004, she lived near the Arizona-Mexico border — an immersive experience that gave new, and often disturbing, insight into a broken system.

    “I drove I can’t even tell you how many thousands of miles,” she said. “One day I would be with folks that are putting water on the border to save dehydrated migrants, and the next day I would be at a gun show with folks that are getting petition signatures for what was to become SB 1070,” the controversial and polarizing Arizona immigration-control law.

    Her understanding of media’s power to promote — and impede — social change compelled Domenzain to attend New York University’s Graduate School of Journalism. She received a master’s degree in journalism in 2005, and worked at a succession of jobs at Telemundo, the BBC, and Univision, in her native Miami, until 2010, when politics called again.

    From 2010 until 2011, Domenzain worked for the Congressional Hispanic Caucus and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, and in 2012 became the national director of Hispanic press and outreach for President Barack Obama’s reelection campaign. In 2017, she became director of the Latino Policy Institute at Roger Williams University. She continues to be a nationally respected authority and advocate on Latino issues, including immigration, economic and social disparities, media, and government policy.

  • Timothy Edgar on Story in the Public Square

    Timothy Edgar on “Story in the Public Square”

    Air Dates: February 10-11, 2018

    When Patrick Henry stood up in the Virginia House of Burgesses and said, “Give me liberty, or give me death,” he crystallized for all time the critical tension between security of the state and the desire of all people to breathe free. Guest, Timothy Edgar, has worked to help resolve those tensions at the National Security Agency and in the White House of President Barack Obama.

    Edgar is a former national security and intelligence official, cybersecurity expert, privacy lawyer and civil liberties activist. Edgar joined the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), shortly before the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, and spent five years fighting in Congress against abuses in the “war on terror.”  He left the ACLU to try to make a difference by going inside America’s growing surveillance state – a story he tells in Beyond Snowden: Privacy, Mass Surveillance and the Struggle to Reform the NSA.

    He worked for a number of years advising the director of national intelligence during the George W. Bush administration. As well as advising former President Barack Obama on privacy issues in cybersecurity policy. In 2013, Edgar left government for Brown University to help launch its professional cybersecurity degree program, and is now a senior fellow at Brown’s Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs. Edgar also works to help companies navigate cybersecurity problems, and is on the advisory board of Virtru, which offers simple encryption software for businesses and individuals.

    Edgar has been profiled by CNN’s Christiane Amanpour and his work has appeared in the Wall Street Journal, the Los Angeles Times, the Guardian, Foreign Affairs, and Wired, and he is a contributing editor to “Lawfare: Hard National Security Choices.” Edgar was a law clerk to Judge Sandra Lynch, United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit, and is a graduate of Harvard Law School and Dartmouth College.
