Uptown Campus
Anna Many Lounge

Title: "The Archive of the Enslaved: Power Enslavement, and the Production of the Past"
During this presentation, Dr. Montalvo will discuss her current book project, The Archive of the Enslaved: Power Enslavement, and the Production of the Past, a legal history of slavery, capitalism, and freedom that narrows in the everyday business of slavery in the antebellum courtroom to examine the relationship between the production of property and the production of the past.
Maria R. Montalvo is the Bonquois Postdoctoral Fellow in Women’s History in the Gulf
South at Newcomb College Institute. She will be joining the History Department at Emory
University as an Assistant Professor in August 2019. Her scholarship centers on the legal history
of slavery, capitalism, and freedom in the nineteenth-century United States. She is currently
working on transforming her dissertation into a manuscript, tentatively titled The Archive of the
Enslaved: Power, Enslavement, and the Production of the Past. A native of Rio Grande City,
Texas, she earned her bachelor’s degree in Plan II and History from the University of Texas at
Austin in 2012, her master’s in History from Rice University in 2014, and her Ph.D. in History

The Maternal and Child Health Coalition presents to the New Orleans City Council

Thursday, October 18, 2018 - 10:00am

Other
City Council Chambers on the 1st floor of City Hall | 1300 Perdido Street

The Maternal and Child Health Coalition is a group of individuals and community organizations dedicated to advocating for improved health services for women and children in New Orleans. Due to the dire statistics concerning birth outcomes, particularly for women of color, in the New Orleans community, the coalition is requesting that the City Council and Mayor’s Office re-establish an office of maternal and child health within city government to monitor this crisis and implement interventions to improve how women give birth in this city. Come support the Coalition as they present their argument to the City Council.

The Mary Amelia Women's Center (MAC) at Tulane University’s School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine reports that:
Louisiana is second highest among all U.S. states for rates of low birth weight and preterm births, conditions that increase risk for neonatal morbidity and long-term deficits in growth and development.
Black women in New Orleans are twice as likely to have a low birth weight infant and compared to White women and about 1.5 times as likely to give birth preterm.
Louisiana has the fourth highest infant mortality rate in the United States and in New Orleans; the Black infant mortality rate is three times higher than the white infant mortality rate.
In Louisiana, Black maternal mortality rates are almost three times higher than White maternal mortality rates.

Tulane Opera Workshop - Hansel and Gretel

presents
Humperdinck's Hansel & Gretel
April 12 at 7:30pm April 14 at 2:30pm Dixon Hall
****
At a woodcutter's house on the edge of the forest, Hansel and Gretel play while their parents are out. Their mother returns and accidentally knocks over the milk jug that contains the last sustenance in the house. Furious, she sends both children out into the forest to look for strawberries. Their father comes home to find them missing, and warns his wife about the dangers of the witch in the forest. They set out in search of them. Meanwhile Hansel and Gretel have become lost, and go to sleep guarded by angels. In the morning they wake up to discover a house made of gingerbread in the vicinity. They soon come across the owner – the witch – who proceeds to turn Gretel into a servant and starts fattening Hansel for the oven. Just before she can place him there, the children turn the tables and shove her in instead. They free the other child-victims (who have become gingerbread-children) in time for their parents to arrive and lead them in a hymn of thanksgiving.
