America's Birth Certificate

America's Birth Certificate

A deep look at the Declaration of Independence and its impact, with Richard Bell, associate professor of history at the University of Maryland.

The Declaration of Independence is a peculiar thing. Its a literary masterpiece that was written jointly by a committee of fifty people. Its short and punchy just 1310 words long but still somehow daunting and difficult to get a grip on. (There's a reason most of us have never read it in full and can only quote the first third of its second sentence).

And what is it exactly? Is it a birth certificate announcing happy news, or a petition for divorce full of grievance and score-settling? Is it aimed at the American people, or King George, or someone else? Was it the first ever declaration of independence, or a cheap imitation of a genre already well established? What did people at the time make of it? What did it change? Why does it still matter?

Rick Bell, a history professor who has given thrilling Profs and Pints talks on the Hamilton musical, the genius of Ben Franklin, and African Americans in the American Revolution, returns to the stage to answer these questions and more. Hell set this uniquely American civic text in global perspective. Hell discuss why the Declaration caused barely a ripple when it arrived in London, and how, in the months and years that followed, it became an example and inspiration to revolutionaries across the continent, the ocean, and the globe, with more than 100 other declarations of independence being issued in other parts of the world since 1776.

Our American Revolution's modest change in political sovereignty in a few out-of-the-way agricultural colonies on the western rim of the Atlantic Ocean occupies pride of place in the larger history of global decolonization and post-colonialism.

Gear up for July 4th by hearing a talk that will tackle the fascinating origins, misunderstood purpose, and extraordinary global legacy of the Declaration of Independence. Dr. Bell (a Brit with a vicious sense of humor) might even make you reconsider this whole independence thing in the first place.

This fascinating talk is hosted by the famous DC series, Profs and Pints and tickets can be purchased on their website:

Hope to see everyone there as we celebrate our nation's Independence Day!

Free speech; a threat or an opportunity for democratic reforms in Africa:

Free speech; a threat or an opportunity for democratic reforms in Africa:

In April, Sudanese president Omar al-Bashir, who had ruled the country for 30 years, was removed through a military coup in the face of sustained protests by a wide coalition of labor unions and other citizen groups. Since then, protesters have continued to call for the Transitional Military Council to step aside and allow a transition to civilian leadership.
On June 3, security forces violently broke up the protesters’ camps, reportedly resulting in the deaths of at least 13 protesters and injuring many others (now counting108 deaths in total, 6/6/19).
Following this, Sudanese authorities have shut down internet access to limit news of attacks by armed elements against people standing up for democracy, and to prevent peaceful protesters from organizing in Sudan.

Sick Trades: The Side-Effects of EU Trade Agreements with Latin America

EU law requires all relevant EU policies, including trade policy, to promote sustainable development. As such, EU trade policy aims to ensure that economic development goes hand in hand with principles of social justice, respect for human rights, high labor standards, and high environmental standards.

However, in 2011 alone, the EU imported beef and livestock feed associated with Brazilian deforestation equivalent to more than 300 football fields per day; according to official data, about 3,050 sq miles of the Amazon rain forest was destroyed between August 2017 and July 2018. Also at issue are the rights of indigenous populations, threats to health security, and sub-par labor standards and safety protections for Latin American workers.

Korean Film Festival - 1987: When the Day Comes

Korean Film Festival Event Hosted by the Korean Cultural Center:

"1987: When the Day Comes is Jang Joon-hwan's most accomplished effort to date, and he joins us in person for this screening of the film. This political thriller tells the true story of a student activist’s death and its subsequent cover-up, which sparked the 1987 June democracy movement that eventually ousted Chun Doo-hwan’s military dictatorship and brought democracy to South Korea. Jang expertly weaves together multiple storylines and a host of characters (played by a who’s who of Korean movie stars) into a drama that is gripping from start to finish. The film is directed, in the words of Variety’s Maggie Lee, “with a combination of humanistic ardor and intelligent insight,” resulting in “a compelling depiction of how brave individuals from all walks of life mobilized a whole nation to bring a recalcitrant dictator and his henchmen to their knees.” (Dir.: Jang Joon-hwan, Korea, 2017, 129 min., DCP, Korean with English subtitles) Watch the trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=19hvVaeJ4tI

FILM ADMISSION POLICY: Unless noted, programs are held in the Freer’s Meyer Auditorium and seating is first come, first served. Auditorium doors open approximately thirty minutes before each film. Schedule is subject to change."

The film starts at 2 but it's first come first serve with doors open at 1:30, so that's when we're going to meet up there.

Museum Day -- tour the Striking Iron exhibit

The African Art Museum recently installed an exhibit called: Striking Iron, the Art of African Blacksmiths. It is a display that captures both the strength and artistic qualities of iron, as well at the critical role iron played in Africa's history.

The Los Angeles Times said the exhibit displays the "delicate artistry of clever metalworkers" while a review on NPR said it captured "Africa's rich history of ironworking through 225 tools, weapons and adornments from over 100 ethnic groups across Africa". (See links to both articles below.) Come enjoy and discuss the pieces on display with fellow YPIA members!

Indian Elections Recap

Join YPIA's Asia-Pacific Program in a discussion around this year's election cycle in India. This is an off the record event for professionals in a variety of fields to learn about and debate/discuss different perspectives on international issues.

From April 11 to May 19, over 900 million people will engage in the largest democratic exercise in the world. Modi and his Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) are seeking re-election after a landslide victory in 2014. The main national opposition party is the Congress, led by Rahul Gandhi, the scion of India's most influential political dynasty. But numerous other regional parties also wield significant influence across the country, with some for and others against Modi. In the 2014 contest, there were a total of 464 political parties and more than 8,000 candidates courting voters across the nation. Will Modi buck the trend of anti-incumbency in India or will he fall as nearly all others have to a fickle electorate? Join us to discuss the results of this historic election on May 30, 2019 at Cleveland Park Library!

Jailbird Julian: The Arrest of Assange

Join YPIA's Europe-Eurasia & Americas Programs in a discussion about the April 11th arrest of Wikileaks' Julian Assange and its widespread implications for the future of journalism and its role in international diplomacy. This is an off the record event for professionals in a variety of fields to learn about and debate/discuss different perspectives on international issues.

After spending nearly seven years in the Ecuadorian embassy in London, Julian Assange, founder of Wikileaks, was arrested by British police, convicted for violating the terms of his bail in the U.K., and had an indictment against him unsealed in the United States—all in a single day.

Despite the swiftness of this recent action, the charges against Assange raise a host of complex questions that implicate international diplomatic relations conventions, free speech protections, the possible criminalization of newsgathering & journalistic activities, and the future of the ways in which information is disseminated.

Rising Vietnam - A New Asian Tiger?

Join YPIA's Asia-Pacific Program in a discussion about Vietnam's past and projected economic growth and the implications of such trends for the coming decades. This is an off the record event for professionals in a variety of fields to learn about and debate/discuss different perspectives on international issues.

Since the mid-1980s, through the Doi Moi reform period Vietnam has made a shift from a highly centralized command economy to a mixed economy that uses both directive and indicative planning through five-year plans. Over that period, the economy has experienced rapid growth. In the 21st century, Vietnam is in a period of being integrated into the global economy. According to a forecast by PricewaterhouseCoopers in February 2017, Vietnam may be the fastest-growing of the world's economies, with a potential annual GDP growth rate of about 5.1%, which would make its economy the 20th-largest in the world by 2050.[11] Vietnam has also been named among the Next Eleven and CIVETS countries.

Thai Elections Discussion - Changing Political Landscape in the Land of Smiles

Join YPIA's Asia-Pacific Program in a discussion around the recent Thai elections. This is an off the record event for professionals in a variety of fields to learn about and debate/discuss different perspectives on international issues.

The recent elections have yielded some surprising results, though many core power-players in Thai politics remain strong. The outcome currently points to an emergent national divide between voters who support incumbent premier General Prayuth Chan-ocha and those who oppose military rule. As the military appears more and more intent on insisting that Prayuth continue as prime minister, there is increasing risk of conflict and instability ahead. That said, there are many possible outcomes, and we hope to explore some of them at our upcoming event at Cleveland Park Library (Basement Meeting Room 2) on May 2nd, 6:30-8:00 PM.

Europe Book Club: Making Peace by George Mitchell

It has been over 20 years since the Good Friday Agreement, a Treaty that ended the violence in Northern Ireland. The process to get to that agreement was anything but smooth, however. Debates, disagreements, shouting, and walk-outs were common occurrences during the negotiations. One person who had a front-row seat to these proceedings was US Special Envoy for Northern Ireland and former President of the US Senate Senator George Mitchell. Mitchell's book Making Peace is his memoirs of that period in history, telling both the story of the negotiation process and his part in it, but also his own personal history during the period.

With Brexit complicating the status of Northern Ireland, what does the future hold twenty years after this important agreement? Join us to discuss this question as well as Senator Mitchell's book.

Who’s the Boss? A Discussion on Venezuela’s Escalating Crisis

Who’s the Boss? A Discussion on Venezuela’s Escalating Crisis

On January 23rd, the leader of the Venezuelan legislature, Juan Guaidó declared himself acting president and laid out a plan to bring change to his troubled nation.

The move was a direct challenge to President Nicolás Maduro, who recently had been sworn in to a second six-year term in office after a highly controversial presidential election in May 2018.

Venezuela is beset by unprecedented social and economic crisis. Skyrocketing hyperinflation, power cuts, and shortages of food and medicine have pushed more than three million Venezuelans to leave the country in recent years.

While Maduro’s government has not been able to rein in the economy, it has managed to consolidate power and undermine democratic institutions. This has left Venezuelans without meaningful avenues to challenge the country’s leadership.

Guaidó’s actions have been met with the support of more than 50 countries, including the US, the majority of Latin America, as well as other international leaders. However, in order to fulfill his plan, Guaidó needs the support of the security forces, who remain loyal to President Maduro.

How did things get so bad in Venezuela? Is there a solution to the crisis that may avoid additional hardship for its citizens? What role can the international community play in resolving the political stalemate?

Join us for the discussion!
