    Fletcher School Missing Maps Mapathon: Aleppo

    5:30 PM – 7:30 PM

    What’s the Missing Maps Project? The Missing Maps Project was co-started by MSF and ICRC to solve a very serious issue that disaster response teams often come into contact with: many of the places where disasters occur - be they natural or conflict based - every year are literally “missing” from any map. What this means is that first responders lack the information to make valuable decisions regarding relief efforts. Missing Maps is an open, collaborative project in which individuals can help to map areas where humanitarian organisations are trying to meet the needs of vulnerable people.

    Book Talk with Dr. Heather Curtis

    3:00 PM – 4:30 PM

    Dr. Curtis’ forthcoming book, "Holy Humanitarians: American Evangelicals and Global Aid," examines the crucial role popular religious media played in the extension of U.S. aid at home and abroad from the late-nineteenth to the early twentieth century. Drawing on rigorous archival research, Curtis lays bare the theological motivations, social forces, cultural assumptions, business calculations and political dynamics that shaped Americans’ ambivalent embrace of evangelical philanthropy during a pivotal period in the nation’s history. In the process, she uncovers the seeds of today’s heated debates over the politics of poverty relief and international aid. Sponsored by Ginn and Tisch libraries in partnership with the Fletcher Initiative on Religion, Law & Diplomacy.
