Back to the Lectures At-Hand:
*Presentation #1
The “Dark Invader” and the Doctor: Sabotage on the “Manhattan Front”
by Lucie Levine

Bio: Lucie Levine is the founder of Archive on Parade, a local tour and event company that aims to take New York’s fascinating history out of the archives and into the streets.

*Presentation #2
Black Earth, Red Earth, and Lumpy Beer: The Cuisine of Ancient Egypt
by Andrew Coletti

Description: After a long, hard day hauling pyramid stones or wrapping up mummies, an Ancient Egyptian needed a decent meal. But what did the Egyptians eat, exactly? What were their staple crops, ingredients and livestock? How was food celebrated in Egyptian religion, and how different is Ancient Egyptian food from the food of modern Egypt? In this talk, we’ll discover the answers to these questions and more, as we explore the role of food in Ancient Egyptian culture, literature and art.

Bio: Andrew Coletti is an educator and lifelong history/mythology/fantasy nerd who has been known to throw ancient dinner parties just for fun. Follow his recreations of ancient recipes on passtheflamingo.com, or @passtheflamingo on Instagram and Twitter.

*Presentation #3
How a Gang of Pirates, Free Slaves, Whores, and The World’s Largest Asshole Saved America.
by Shane Snow

Description: Learn the story that they never really taught us in US History class, but definitely should become a movie starring Ryan Gosling as a saucy pirate. And at the same time, learn how the science of diversity actually works—not the sensitivity training shit that corporations keep getting wrong, but how our differences actually make us smarter together.

Bio: Shane Snow is a bestselling author and award-winning journalist who has helped expose gun traffickers and gender inequality in the US government, eaten only ice cream for two weeks in the name of science, and now author of the forthcoming book DREAM TEAMS (June 2018), which is about incredible teams in history and the science of working together better. Shane’s writing has appeared in Fast Company, Wired, The New Yorker, and dozens more top publications. His work has been called “Insanely addicting” by GQ—though he wishes they had been talking about his abs.
