Garden District Book Shop, A Studio in the Woods, and the New Orleans Center for the Gulf South at Tulane University present a virtual event, Life of a Klansman: A Family History in White Supremacy Author Edward Ball in conversation with Dr. Lydia Pelot-Hobbs.

This month's Braid & Flow topic is RECKONING. A bill, an account, a settlement. How do we hold ourselves and others accountable? How do we form the language to call out oppressive institutions and call in the individuals at the helm? July’s Braid and Flow: Reckoning will look into our practices with regards to Climate, Money, and Cultural Institutions. Through this conversation, we hope to come to restorative and healthy solutions to this period of reckoning.

Braid and Flow is a bimonthly convening that explore themes that stretch across scales and disciplines, such as food and food systems, racialized violence, and technology and intimacy. Our goal is to learn from each other, and to strengthen the theories and the practices that guide our work as artists, activists, researchers, policy makers, writers, scientists, designers, teachers, students, and leaders, all working to navigate the Anthropocene and the challenges of climate change and pandemic.

For now, these meetings will be online. The series kicks off at 6 p.m. on Monday, May 18, with a brief introduction to Braid and Flow and this month's topic of food before we break into three separate guided conversations exploring these aspects of food and food systems: 1) Access & Distribution, 2) Health & Nutrition, and 3) Ecology & Gardening.

If there is one certainty that we can universally count on as an enduring condition in the built environment, it is the increasing UNCERTAINTY brought by climate change.

Sovereignty is the full right and power of a governing body over itself, without any interference from outside sources or bodies. The colonial history of the gulf south region is fraught with infractions to the sovereignty of Indigenous governance, land rights and physical bodies.

“The varsity Sport for the Mind,”  FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) combines the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology. Under strict rules, limited resources, and time limits, teams of 25 students or more are challenged to raise funds, design a team “brand,” hone teamwork skills, and build and program robots to perform prescribed tasks against a field of competitors.  It’s as close to “real-world engineering” as a student can get. Volunteer professional mentors lend their time and talents to guide each team.
