May 25   OLDER AND WISER: NEW IDEAS FOR YOUTH MENTORING IN  THE 21ST CENTURY
New York State Library - Online
222 Madison Avenue - Albany, NY  (518) 474-2274.
Youth mentoring programs must change in order to become truly effective. This talk shows how.
Youth mentoring is among the most popular forms of volunteering in the world. But does it work? Does mentoring actually help young people succeed? In Older and Wiser, Professor Jean Rhodes draws on more than thirty years of empirical research to survey the state of the field. Her conclusion is sobering: there is little evidence that most programs—even renowned, trusted, and long-established ones—are effective. But there is also much reason for hope. Mentoring programs, do not focus on what young people need. Organizations typically prioritize building emotional bonds between mentors and mentees. But research makes clear that effective programs emphasize the development of specific social, emotional, and intellectual skills. Most mentoring programs are poorly suited to this effort because they rely overwhelmingly on volunteers, who rarely have the training necessary to teach these skills to young people. Moreover, the one-size-fits-all models of major mentoring organizations struggle to deal with the diverse backgrounds of mentees, the psychological effects of poverty on children, and increasingly hard limits to upward mobility in an unequal world. Rhodes does not think we should give up on mentoring — far from it. In this talk, she will show that evidence-based approaches can in fact create meaningful change in young people’s lives. She will also discuss “organic” mentorship opportunities — in schools, youth sports leagues, and community organizations.


Jean Rhodes, PhD is the Frank L. Boyden Professor of Psychology and the Director of the Center for Evidence-Based Mentoring at the University of Massachusetts, Boston. Rhodes has devoted her career to understanding and advancing the role of intergenerational relationships in the social, educational, and career development of marginalized youth. She has published widely on topics related to positive youth development, the transition to adulthood, and mentoring. Her new book, Older and Wiser: Rethinking Youth Mentoring for the 21st Century (Harvard Press) describes ways that programs can improve their outcomes. Rhodes is a Fellow of the American Psychological Association and the Society for Research and Community Action, a Health Policy Fellow of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and Distinguished Fellow of the William T. Grant Foundation. She holds a doctorate in clinical psychology from DePaul University and completed her clinical internship at the University of Chicago Medical Center.

May 27   PRIVATE VIRTUES, PUBLIC VICES: PHILANTHROPY & DEMOCRATIC EQUALITY
New York State Library - Online
222 Madison Avenue - Albany, NY  (518) 474-2274.
Emma Saunders-Hastings will discuss her new book Private Virtues, Public Vices: Philanthropy and Democratic Equality. The book develops a political theory of philanthropy and its relationship to democracy. Philanthropy plays a significant role in supporting the provision of many public goods in contemporary societies. As a result, decisions that affect public outcomes and people’s diverse interests are often dependent on the preferences and judgments of the rich. Saunders-Hastings explains how this situation threatens important democratic values and offers proposals for reform. She shows how philanthropy can deepen political inequality by enabling the wealthy to exercise outsize influence in public life and by putting in place paternalistic relationships between donors and their intended beneficiaries. If philanthropy is to be made compatible with a democratic society of equals, it must be judged not simply on the immediate benefits it brings but on its wider political consequences.

Emma Saunders-Hastings, Ph.D. is an assistant professor of political science at the Ohio State University. She is the author of Private Virtues, Public Vices: Philanthropy and Democratic Equality (University of Chicago Press, 2022). Her research on philanthropy has been published in the American Political Science Review, the Journal of Politics, and the edited volume Effective Altruism: Philosophical Issues (Oxford University Press, 2019). She has also written about philanthropy for a general audience in the Boston Review and at histphil.org.

May 31   A COLD WELCOME: THE LITTLE ICE AGE AND EUROPE'S ENCOUNTER WITH NORTH AMERICA
New York State Library - Online
222 Madison Avenue - Albany, NY  (518) 474-2274.
When early Spanish, French, and English explorers and colonists came to North America, they expected to find the same climates and environments encountered at the same latitudes across the Atlantic. Few came prepared for America’s novel environments and stronger continental seasons—and most of all, for the extremes of cold and drought that characterized the late 1500s and early 1600s, at the peak of the so-called “Little Ice Age.” Harsh and unexpected conditions meant shortages, shipwrecks, hunger, and conflict for decades of attempts to gain a foothold on the new continent, down to the harrowing stories of famine and disease that marked the founding of Jamestown, Santa Fe, and Quebec in 1607-1608.

In this talk, environmental historian Sam White will explore some of these stories, as well as the historical and scientific research behind them. We’ll see how recent developments in climatology and archaeology give us a new appreciation of this period in North American history and what it means for us as we face rapid climate change in the 21st century.

Sam White is professor of environmental history and author of A Cold Welcome: The Little Ice Age and Europe’s Encounter with North America (Harvard University Press, 2017). He earned his M.A. from the University of St. Andrews (Scotland) and Ph.D. from Columbia University and taught at Oberlin College before joining the Ohio State University. His research uses historical records to reconstruct climate and weather of past centuries and understand their role in politics, culture, and society. He has authored and edited dozens of publications on climate and environmental history, including The Climate of Rebellion in the Early Modern Empire and the Palgrave Handbook of Climate History.
