Beyond Vocational Training: Liberal Arts as a Lifetime Degree
Starting from the present and the real pressures on students to major in vocational subjects, this talk will look back to the Enlightenment quarrels over the value of education and to Victorian debates about the nature and virtue of public schooling. Patten’s talk, “Beyond Vocation Training: Liberal Arts as a Lifetime Degree,” will address the crucial mid-Victorian contributions of John Henry Cardinal Newman and Matthew Arnold, and then consider their legacies in the 21st Century.

Cuba and the Sino-Soviet Dispute
At the height of the Cold War in the 1960s, the Soviet Union, the Peoples’ Republic of China, and revolutionary Cuba would seem to have been steadfast allies in the struggle against what they called “Western Imperialism.” However, unity of purpose did not characterize the tripartite relationship between these three socialist regimes in the 1960s. The PRC and the USSR developed a long-simmering rivalry that split the socialist countries into two hostile encampments. Cuba, isolated from its allies, attempted to create its own path independent from both the Soviet Union and Communist China. Why couldn’t Fidel Castro, Nikita Khrushchev, and Mao Zedong get along? Our understanding of relations between these three socialist regimes comes from Western sources, particularly United States documents. Top secret reports of the CIA and State Department intelligence units have been declassified in the 1990s. This documentation permits us scholars now to investigate some of the official contacts between Cuba, the Peoples Republic of China, and the Soviet Union. Cuban state archives are still closed to researchers, but the Russian and Chinese documents on the Cold War are just now becoming available too, albeit slowly. Here is what we know so far about the relations between the three communist powers. Cuba as the most recent revolution would have preferred not to align itself to either side in the Sino-Soviet Dispute. At the beginning, Fidel Castro did benefit from the patronage of both the Soviets and the Chinese. But the Nikita Khrushchev, Leonid Brezhnev and Mao Zedong required Cuba to choose sides. Only when Cuba’s concerted efforts to “export revolution” to other countries of Latin America finally ended in failure in 1968 did Fidel Castro decide to make a pragmatic rather than ideological bargain with the USSR. Brown is a professor of history at the University of Texas at Austin and a distinguished visiting professor at the United States Air Force Academy since 2010. He has published four single-authored books: “A Socioeconomic History of Argentina, 1776-1860” (1979); Oil and Revolution in Mexico (1993), “Latin America: A Social History of the Colonial Period” (2nd ed., 2005) and “A Brief History of Argentina” (2nd ed., 2009). Three of these books have been translated and published in Latin America. “A Brief History of Argentina” has been translated and published in Chinese. His first book on Argentina, published by Cambridge University Press, won the Bolton Prize. Brown also edited a collection of essays on workers and populism in Latin America and co-edited books on the Mexican oil industry and on Argentine social history. He is currently writing a book on the Cuban Revolution. The family and friends of the late Benjamin Kopper Smith established the B.K. Smith Lecture in 1957. The series has brought a series of distinguished scholars to the UST campus to lecture and hold informal discussions with students and faculty. Smith, a welding superintendent for the Pennsylvania Railroad, came to Texas in 1920 and founded the Big Three Welding and Equipment Company, which opened a Houston office in 1925. His contributions to Houston were many and he remained active until his death in 1948, a year after UST was founded. Speaker: Dr. Jonathan C.

Edith Stein Between Husserl & St. Thomas Aquinas
The intellectual legacy of the one of the Catholic Church’s most fascinating 20th century saints – the philosopher and Holocaust martyr Edith Stein – will be the focus of a Feb. 28 lecture at the University of St. Thomas. The 4th Annual Zambosco-Thomas Memorial Lecture will feature Dr. Angela Ales Bello, an Italian philosopher and a leading authority on Stein, who was also known by her religious name, Teresa Benedicta of the Cross. The story of Stein – a German Jew and philosopher whose search for the truth led her to Christianity, a Carmelite monastery and eventually death at the Auschwitz concentration camp – is known throughout the world. Stein was canonized in 1998 by Pope John Paul II. In addition to her martyrdom and Christian witness, Stein left behind a serious body of work as she sought to bridge the Catholic philosophy of St. Thomas Aquinas with modern philosophical thought. Bello will address this contribution to philosophy in her lecture, “Edith Stein Between Husserl and St. Thomas Aquinas.” Stein earned a doctorate in philosophy and studied under Edmund Husserl, a German philosopher and founder of the phenomenology school of thought. After becoming Catholic Stein studied and translated into German Aquinas’ writings and tried to connect Thomism with the new phenomenology. She also wrote works on metaphysics, theology and mysticism – in particular the relation of mysticism and experience as forms of knowledge and intellectual inquiry. Stein’s sudden conversion came after reading the autobiography of the Spanish mystic St. Teresa of Avila. Bello has written extensively on Stein’s thought and edited the Italian translation of Stein’s collected works. She speaks to Catholic groups throughout Italy and her lecture is intended to deepen appreciation for one of the 20th century’s most important Catholic philosophers. Bello is a former professor and philosophy dean at the Pontifical Lateran University in Rome and currently serves as director of the Center for Research in Phenomenology.

Useless Slaughter: Pope Benedict XV's Diplomatic Efforts to End World War One
Pope Benedict XV (1914-1922) was elected barely a month after the outbreak of World War One in September 1914. He was revolted by what he described as 'the useless slaughter' which the First World War brought to Europe. Consequently, throughout the war he sought by means of Vatican diplomacy to bring the war to an end. His most spectacular initiative was the 'Peace Note' of August, 1917, in which he offered the warring powers six practical suggestions as the basis for peace negotiations. He was consequently deeply disappointed by the negative response of both sides in conflict. Nevertheless, he persisted in his peace-making efforts until the end of hostilities and brought humanitarian aid to hundreds of thousands of civilians and prisoners-of-war through papal relief agencies. Bio: Dr. John Pollard is Emeritus Professor of History at Anglia Ruskin University and Fellow in History at Trinity Hall College in the University of Cambridge. He was awarded the Balsdon Fellow of the British School at Rome for 2013-2014. His teaching is in the area of twentieth century European history. His research interests lie in the History of Italy and the Papacy in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, fascist and neo-fascist movements, and political and social Catholicism. In 1999, he published The Unknown Pope: Benedict XV and the Pursuit of Peace. His latest book, The Papacy in the Age of Totalitarianism, 1914-1958 will be published by Oxford University Press in the autumn of 2014. About the B.K.
