As the fear of spies and traitors spread through the North, political arrests became commonplace, even in states as far north as Maine. Anybody expressing any anti-war sentiment would be assumed to be a traitor and a secessionist, and arrests were carried out according to a guilty-until-proven-innocent policy. Martial Law was not confined to the slave states. Chris Calton recounts the controversial history of the Civil War. This is the 23rd episode in the third season of Historical Controversies.

If you’re of a scientific persuasion, watching policy debates around Brexit, or climate change, or drug prohibition are likely to cause feelings of intense frustration about the dearth of evidence in those discussions. In this podcast we're joined by Chris Bonell, professor of public health sociology - in this podcast he airs those frustrations, and worries that the rise of populism is pushing evidence even further out of policy decision.

The editors discuss Carolina Ebeid's poem "Annotations for a Memorial" from the September 2018 issue of POETRY.
In contemporary Bangladesh, one often encounters gatherings of men in brightly illuminated and often festive tents, listening to the religious discourses of Islamic preachers from the early evening till late at night. The listeners follow the preacher intensely, often reciting along with the preacher, uttering affirmative interjections, or shedding tears. In this talk, I will present some aspects of my research on these sermon gatherings. I first provide an introduction on the setting and space of the gatherings, and then analyse the textual and performative layers of the sermons at some depth. For example, I will explain the importance of the different languages that preachers employ to gain religious authority and shape an idiom of their own. I furthermore interpret the ways in which the sermons involve the listeners in narratives that offer them possibilities to identify themselves with different kinds of inner-narrative heroes. Here, I am particularly interested in the link between narration and expectation of salvation, or, more abstractly, in the theological consequences of the listeners’ identification with figures in the preachers’ narrative. In a last step, I will show how the preachers’ musical competencies add to both the multilingualism and the dramatic narrations, and how they can serve to change emotional and political meanings subtly yet effectively. Max Stille earned his PhD in South Asian Studies from Heidelberg University in 2017 with a dissertation on Islamic sermons in contemporary Bangladesh that he had done research on from 2012-2016 as part of a project on the transcultural dimensions of Islamic sermons. Currently, he is researcher at the Center for the History of Emotions at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development in Berlin with a project on “Emotional Transitions: Religious and Non-Religious Emotions in North India, ca. 1840-1920.” His research interests include contemporary Islam, particularly in South Asia, the history of religion in a global context, and narratology.

Molly Donovan, curator of art, 1975–present, department of modern art, National Gallery of Art Rachel Whiteread, the first comprehensive survey of this British sculptor’s 30-year career, features drawings, photographs, architecture-scaled sculptures, archival materials, documentary materials on public projects, and several new works on view for the first time. In this introductory lecture recorded on September 16, 2018, Molly Donovan explains how Whiteread’s sculptures memorialize everyday objects, domestic interiors, and public spaces. Donovan also shares the ways in which Whiteread has effectively recast the memories of these locations and objects to chart the seismic changes in how we live, from the late 20th century and into the 21st. The exhibition is on view through January 13, 2019.
Speaker(s): Mário Centeno | In his lecture Eurogroup President Mário Centeno will speak about the push to reform the Euro and the politics behind it, and discuss how the single currency could shield the European economy from both internal and external shocks in the future. Mário Centeno (@mariofcenteno) was elected President of the Eurogroup on 4 December 2017 by the Euro area finance ministers. Since December 2017 he also serves as Chair of the Board of Governors of the European Stability Mechanism. He was sworn in as Finance Minister of Portugal in November 2015. Mr Centeno is an economist and University Professor who only began his political career in 2015. Before that he held several positions in Portugal’s Central Bank where he started as an economist in 2000. Mr Centeno has an academic background with two Masters – the first one in Applied Mathematics, by ISEG-UTL in 1993, the second one in Economics, by Harvard University, USA, in 1998 – and a PhD in Economics, by Harvard University, USA, concluded in 2000. Minouche Shafik is Director of the London School of Economics and Political Science. Prior to this she was Deputy Governor of the Bank of England. The LSE European Institute (@LSEEI) is a centre for research and graduate teaching on the processes of integration and fragmentation within Europe. In the most recent national Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014) the Institute was ranked first for research in its sector.
We take a break from economics this week to welcome our old friend Jim Bovard (Mises.org/Bovard) for an unflinching look at the disastrous politicization of everything in America. The nasty fight over Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court confirmation is only the latest example of a trend Rothbard identified decades ago, one that intensifies in the Trump era. Can we ever make politics matter less again? Can we ever stop filtering everything that happens through a noxious lens of race, sex, class, oppression, and intersectionality? And can we ever stop seeking to vanquish people politically?

As the title indicates, Brandon finds an Abraham-Hicks clip he finds very worthy of sharing and discussing that goes over the finer points of creation, attraction and manifestation, covering important aspects as our relative lack of consistent discipline in our thoughts by giving them less than 16 seconds of attention, as well as energetic momentum and sensibility to energetic feedback in the moment.

"Education and American Greatness" - Larry P. Arnn in Manchester, NH
More than ½ of patients leave hospital with changes to four or more of their long-term medications - but how appropriate are those changes? New research published on bmj.com looks at antihypertensive medication prescription changes to try and model that - and found that more than half of intensifications occurred in patients with previously well controlled outpatient blood pressure. To discuss what they found, we're joined by Timothy Anderson, primary care research fellow, and Michael Steinman, professor of medicine, both from UCSF.
