Louisiana’s Civilian Heritage: Historical Sources and Current Influences “Did you ever hear of the Napoleonic code, Stella?…Now just let me enlighten you on a point or two…Now we got here in the state of Louisiana what’s known as the Napoleonic code. You see, now according to that, what belongs to the wife belongs to the husband also, and vice versa.” — Stanley Kowalski, A Streetcar Named Desire, by Tennessee Williams This class chronicles the valiant struggles of the residents, both Spanish and French, of the Territory of Orleans to protect the territory’s civilian tradition against attempts to force its assimilation into the common law system then prevailing in all states and territories of the United States. Their persistence and dedication resulted in the preservation of Louisiana’s civilian tradition. Dian Tooley-Knoblett is the Jones-Walker Distinguished Professor of Law and teaches both common and civil law. She publishes in the areas of Louisiana property, sales and leases, community property, and conflict of laws.

SESSION 1: FRIDAY, 2 – 3:15 p.m. Robert A. Thomas, Ph.D. School of Mass Communication, College of Social Sciences Director, Loyola University Center for Environmental Communication

Wetland Loss: Past, Present, and Future Professor Thomas will present an overview of the devastating losses suffered along the Louisiana coast over the last 80 years. Discussion will include historical events and causes, current initiatives, and a prognosis for the future. Special emphasis will be placed on how one uses critical thinking skills in viewing environmental matters and the national security implications of the current national policy regarding the loss of Louisiana’s coastal wetlands. Bob Thomas holds the Endowed Chair in Environmental Communications and is the director of the Center for Environmental Communication at Loyola. He served three years as the interim director of the School of Mass Communication and is well-known both regionally and nationally as a commentator on environmental issues.

Vive La France: Louisiana as a French Colony

NEW ORLEANS AND THE WORLD

Just over a century after the French claimed and partially settled it, Louisiana would become the 18th state in a newly formed union, the United States of America. Louisiana was unlike any of the 17 states that came before it—and unlike most that would come after. Its social, cultural, and political institutions, as well as its majority population, came not from English stock and origins, but from French. What did France do, or not do, that would influence the development of its colony at the mouth of the Mississippi River and that would leave an indelible stamp, setting that colony apart from its neighbors? David Moore received his undergraduate degree at Loyola, served two years in the Peace Corps in Ethiopia, and taught two years in high school before receiving his Ph.D. in American studies from the University of Maryland. His areas of expertise are American cultural and intellectual history in the late 19th and the 20th centuries, American popular culture, and Louisiana history. Recently, most of his research and writing has been on aspects of Louisiana (and New Orleans) cultural and social history. He has been the department chair since 1989. In 1998, Moore won the College of Arts and Sciences Excellence in Teaching award. Moore currently serves as the faculty representative on the Alumni Association Board of Directors.

SESSION 2: FRIDAY, 3:30 – 4:45 p.m. Leslie Parr, Ph.D. School of Mass Communication, College of Social Sciences Director of the Center for the Study of New Orleans

ART AND CULTURE

Picturing New Orleans Since the 19th century, photographers have documented New Orleans and have captured the meaning of its urban landscapes. This session will explore the ways photography has recorded the glory and the shame of our city, preserving our history and shaping our struggles for social justice. Leslie Parr teaches photography, documentary photography, the history of photography, and photojournalism, and is the journalism sequence head. She holds a Ph.D. in United States history from Tulane University and an M.F.A. in photography, also from Tulane. She has worked professionally as a photojournalist and writer and has published three books.

SESSION 2: FRIDAY, 3:30 – 4:45 p.m. The Rev. Alfred C. “Fred” Kammer, S.J., J.D., Executive Director, Jesuit Social Research Institute, College of Social Sciences

The Scriptural Roots of Contemporary Faithjustice This session will develop the foundational themes from the Judeo-Christian Scriptures for the contemporary stance of faithjustice of the Catholic Church and the Society of Jesus. Included will be the gratuitousness of creation, stewardship, the Jubilee, justice, and the “Three great parables of Jesus.” Fr. Fred Kammer is a priest and an attorney, and has been director of the Jesuit Social Research Institute since 2009. From 2002 to 2008, he was the provincial superior for the New Orleans Province of the Society of Jesus, guiding its post-Katrina recovery and service to the devastated region’s poor and needy.

The Press of New Orleans: The Past. The Present. The Future?

POLITICS AND SOCIETY

At the age of 175, the New Orleans Times-Picayune is the sole survivor of what was a thriving and competitive newspaper community in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Its lineage includes not only the Times and the Picayune, but the States, the Item, the Democrat, and the Tribune. That it survived all of those ancestors—and a host of other competitors—is testimony to its strength as a newspaper and as an advertising medium. In recent years, however, like other newspapers around the country, the Times-Picayune has lost circulation and advertisers. While its coverage of Hurricane Katrina won the staff of the newspaper a number of awards, including a  Pulitzer Prize and an honorary doctorate from Loyola, the aftermath of the storm has left it weakened, and in this anniversary year, some wonder whether it can live to celebrate its 200th anniversary. This class will examine the Times-Picayune’s history, its post Katrina performance as a news and advertising medium in the face of competition from other media, and its (possible) future. Larry Lorenz came to Loyola in 1991 as chair of the Department of Communications and was the A. Louis Read Distinguished Professor of Mass Communication. He was the founding dean of the College of Social Sciences and, upon his retirement, was named Professor Emeritus. His early career was as a journalist in print, radio, and television. Lorenz received his Ph.D. from Southern Illinois University and, prior to coming to Loyola, taught at Southern Illinois, Marquette University, and New Mexico State University. Since 1987, he has hosted the public affairs program Informed Sources on New Orleans’ public television station, WYES-TV. Lorenz is the author of News: Reporting and Writing (with John Vivian) and Hugh Gaine: A Colonial PrinterEditor’s Odyssey to Loyalism.

SESSION 3: SATURDAY, 9:15 – 10:30 a.m. Judith Hunt, Ph.D. Associate Dean, College of Humanities and Natural Sciences

Creole Crossroads

NEW ORLEANS AND THE WORLD

New Orleans music, food, literature, religious practices, and carnival reflect the unique mixture of the city’s African, Caribbean, and European roots. The session will trace the historical threads that converged in this cultural crossroads to create a city like no other.

SESSION 3: SATURDAY, 9:15 – 10:30 a.m. John Biguenet, M.F.A. Department of English, College of Humanities and Natural Sciences ART AND CULTURE

Depicting Disaster: Describing the Flood and Its Aftermath After the collapse of levees in New Orleans, the problem for writers was not just what to say about this man-made catastrophe, but how to say it. There was nothing in the canon of American literature that could offer a model to imitate. Never in modern America had a major city been destroyed, so how was a writer to describe the event and its aftermath? Showing Professor Biguenet’s video reports for The New York Times and previews of his Rising Water trilogy of plays, we will discuss the challenges of depicting the destruction of New Orleans and its rebirth. John Biguenet is a noted novelist, playwright, essayist, and literary translator, and is the author of Oyster, a novel, and The Torturer’s Apprentice: Stories. His short fiction has received an O. Henry Award and a Harper’s Magazine Writing Award. Among his other books are Strange Harbors, an anthology of international literature in translation, and two volumes on literary translation. For the last six years, Biguenet, first as a guest columnist for The New York Times, and then as a playwright and fiction writer, has addressed the problem of depicting disaster. His Rising Water and Shotgun have won numerous awards and have been seen in production at Southern Rep and at other theaters nationally. His Night Train was developed on a Studio Attachment at the National Theatre in London. He holds the M.F.A. from the University of Arkansas and a B.A. from Loyola, and is the Robert Hunter Distinguished University Professor at Loyola University New Orleans.

SESSION 4: SATURDAY, 10:45 a.m. – 12 p.m. Uriel Quesada, Ph.D., Chair, Latin American Studies and Director, Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies Maurice Brungardt, Ph.D., Department of History, College of Humanities and Natural Sciences

Latino New Orleans New Orleans’ relationship with Latin America and with Latin Americans is rooted in the 16th century, when the Jesuit order was founded and when the Spanish began their colonization of much of the New World. New Orleans itself was part of the Spanish Empire from 1763 until 1802 and played a key role in the history of Latin America. Given its location as the port for much of the trade between the United States and Latin America, it remains a significant link between north and south. With the expansion of the Panama Canal, scheduled to be completed in 2015, this role will only increase as products and commodities make their way to and from the Far East, where a majority of the world’s population resides. New Orleans has long been a meeting ground for Americanos and Latin Americans. Mexico had a consulate, its first, in New Orleans from 1822 to 2002. It was re-established in 2008 because of the influx of workers who are helping rebuild the city after Katrina. Today, New Orleans is a much more vibrant Latino city than it was immediately before Katrina.

Food, Ethnicity, and Community

NEW ORLEANS AND THE WORLD

Despite the issues that divide New Orleanians, they share a proud culinary tradition rooted in great ethnic diversity. Coming together over signature dishes, from muffaletas to shrimp creole, from rice calas to Banh Pho is a treasured cultural ritual that forges communal bonds. This session will explore the ethnic, environmental, and historical forces that have made food a source of community in the Crescent City. Justin Nystrom first came to New Orleans in the spring of 1999 to do research for his master’s thesis on the White League. Like so many who now live in the city today, he has been consumed by this most interesting town ever since, particularly with its life and culture in the 19th and early 20th centuries. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Georgia in 2004 and, before coming to Loyola, taught at Virginia Tech, the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, and the University of Mississippi. His book, New Orleans after the Civil War: Race, Politics, and a New Birth of Freedom, was published in 2010, and he is currently working on a combined book and documentary film project titled Making Groceries: Corner Markets and the Food Culture of Italian New Orleans. Nystrom joined the Loyola faculty in 2009 as a specialist in the Civil War Era, fulfilling a long-held dream of working in the city and at a job that he loves.
