About Dorchester
map
Dorchester Massachusetts is Boston's largest neighborhood and also its oldest, founded just a few months before the City itself.

The Neponset River provided the power for many manufacturing mills located in the lower mills section of Dorchester which is rich in history of the industrial age.

Today Dorchester retains its diversity and with the multi-family homes retains its suburban like feel.

Dorchester is home to the University of Massachusetts and the John F. Kennedy Library located at the tip of Columbia Point and visible from interstate 93.

Public Lecture - Forward and Backward: Two Strategies by which Social Insects Share Their Immunity
Presented by Dr. Rebeca Rosengaus, Associate Professor of Marine & Environmental Sciences, Northeastern University

Social insects live under important pathogenic pressures. To resist infection, each individual in a colony can generate an immune response. Additionally, these insects can share their individual-level immunity with other nestmates. This phenomenon, known as social immunity, ensures that all colony members have a heightened immune-competency that renders the entire colony less susceptible to disease. Social immunity may help explain why social insects are so resilient and ecologically dominant around the world.

Stephen Kellogg Concert

In the great American tradition of musical troubadour and documentarians of society, Stephen Kellogg has been furrowing the great American roads with his band the Sixers and their brand of American rock and roll for the past decade. During that time, he has grown successful to the point of recognition of his artistic insights, to be asked to do a TED talk, which are only reserved for respected important artists and innovators. His theme relies on the realization that “it was better to be at the bottom of a ladder you want to climb, than at the top of one you don’t”.

It is striking that having lived through a challenging and changing moment in life in 2012, including the decision of the band to take a hiatus, the musical result of this tumultuous period is “Blunderstone Rookery” which also coincides with a desire to visit England and plough his musical stories over there.

Additionally, supporting act Ben Fields is working to bring a style of introspective songwriting pioneered by artists like Nick Drake and Van Morrison back into the mainstream. A stylistic homogeny of Harry Nilsson, The Beatles, Curtis Mayfield, and Lowell George gives his most recent album Extraordinary Light a sound that defined an era.  For his debut, Fields worked with some of the finest including producer JC Hopkins [Norah Jones, Madeline Peyroux, Martha Wainwright], guest vocalist Jolie Holland and Warren Smith [Janis Joplin, Van Morrison, Miles Davis]. Fields sets the tone of Extraordinary Light with ‘Swede’ – A John Lennon Songwriting Award winner.

Howard Gardner Lecture #2 - Beauty Reframed
Gutman Conference Center
Gutman Library
6 Appian Way
Cambridge, MA 02138
Tue., Jan. 13, 2015, 5:30 – 7 p.m.



Since the dawn of civilization, humans have struggled to describe the defining virtues of civilization — and, in the process, have confronted some of mankind’s most difficult and enduring questions.

In this lecture series, Professor Howard Gardner traces the astonishing transformations in our conceptions of these three virtues in our lifetime — and describes the newfound challenges in making sense of them. How do we distinguish truth from “truthiness” in the Age of the Internet? How do we judge beauty when modern artists treat it like an outdated virtue? And how do we distinguish right from wrong in age of relativistic and politicized morality? In his lectures, Gardner will explore the current state of these virtues, argue for their continued importance in human society, and explains how we should be educating for them in the twenty-first century — both in and out of the classroom.
