Hear about recent community-based research on the history and culture of Orange, NJ led by the University of Orange. U of O is a people's school in Orange, which offers free classes, teaches an inclusive approach to urbanism, and records and shares the history of Orange. The talk will focus on the recent collaboration between U of O and archaeologist and MSU Professor Chris Matthews to develop projects such as the Reverse Archaeology of I-280, Hidden Treasures of Our Orange, and an interactive map of the city. These projects are designed to actively engage participants in history, and invite them to think critically about urbanism of today and tomorrow.

Yasemin Besen-Cassino, author of "The Cost of Being a Girl", will explore issues of pay equity in the job market and pay inequality among young workers.

From hashtag activism to the flood of political memes, grassroots circulation of opinion online is changing the landscape of political communication. By exploring how everyday people promote messages to persuade their peers and shape the public mind, Joel Penney offers a new framework for understanding the phenomenon of viral political communication: the citizen marketer. In contrast to the “slacktivism” critique often leveled at these media-centered forms of activism, Penney argues that they enable citizens to take on the role of viral political marketers as they participate in the networked spread of ideas.
