Speaker: Jon Olson, U.S. Naval Intelligence Commander (Ret.)


The U.S. Intelligence Community is a large, highly complex, and, some would consider, a vital organization within the U.S. government.  Often controversial, the role of intelligence in support of national security decision-making, the development of foreign policy and security strategy, and in support of diplomatic and military operations will be discussed during this lecture.  Our guest speaker will explain the “intelligence cycle,” the various collection disciplines, the organization of the U.S. Intelligence Community, funding for the intelligence community, and the role of the various intelligence agencies within the national intelligence framework.  A lengthy question and answer period is available at the end of the lecture for students interested in specifics with regard to the U.S. Intelligence Community and intelligence operations.

Carleton College’s Gender and Sexuality Center will host a public screening of the Oscar-nominated documentary film, “The Invisible War,” on Tuesday, Feb. 12 at 7 p.m. in the Weitz Center for Creativity Cinema.  This groundbreaking investigative film uncovers the prevalence of sexual assault within the U.S. military. This event is free and open to the public.

 

“The Invisible War” was recently nominated for Best Documentary Feature at the 2013 Academy Awards; it premiered last year at the Sundance Film Festival, where it received the U.S. Documentary Audience Award. The film looks at the epidemic of rape within the military—a female U.S. soldier in a combat zone is more likely to be raped by a fellow soldier than killed by enemy fire. The Department of Defense estimates there were a staggering 19,000 violent sex crimes in the military in 2010.

2013 Academy Award Nominee for Best Documentary Feature, How to Survive a Plague is the story of two coalitions—ACT UP and TAG (Treatment Action Group)—whose activism and innovation turned AIDS from a death sentence into a manageable condition.

With unfettered access to a treasure trove of never-before-seen archival footage from the 1980s and '90s, filmmaker David France puts the viewer smack in the middle of the controversial actions, the heated meetings, the heartbreaking failures, and the exultant breakthroughs of heroes in the making.

The public is invited and there is a suggested donation of $5 to $15 at the door. All proceeds will benefit The Hope Center in Faribault and the V-Day Spotlight Campaign (www.vday.org), a global movement to end violence against women and girls.

 

First performed in 1994, playwright and activist Eve Ensler’s play “The Vagina Monologues” “offered the world a piece of art like nothing it had seen before,” says student coordinator Lauren Chow ’14 (Weston, Mass.). The ground breaking production was based on dozens of interviews Ensler conducted with women, addressing women's sexuality and the social stigma surrounding rape and abuse. The result was a new conversation about and with women.
