The ongoing pandemic is testing the quality of governance in countries around the globe and raising questions about the role of elected officials in serving community goals. Crises can serve as opportunities for positive social change, but also entail risks around security and social turmoil, geopolitics, human rights, rule of law, inequalities and food security, among others. They also set apart great leaders, from average ones. Join Northeastern for a special series on the impact of COVID-19 around the world. We will leverage our global network to explore risks, challenges and good practices for preparedness, responsiveness, effectiveness and responsibility in dealing with the public health and economic crisis, and what the future holds in a post-pandemic world.

The Boston Pops will perform a symphonic version of “Ragtime,” created especially for the Pops in honor of Keith Lockhart's 25th anniversary, by Tony award-winning original creators – Terrence McNally, Lynn Ahrens, and Stephen Flaherty. Based on the 1975 novel by E. L. Doctorow, “Ragtime” weaves together the stories of three groups in the United States in the early 20th century: Eastern European immigrants, the African-American community in Harlem, and an upper-class white family whose lives intersect. Together, they confront history’s timeless contradictions of wealth and poverty, freedom and prejudice, hope and despair. Join us for the traditional fanfare dinner in the Alumni Center before the show.
The Birth of Boston Project is an online map of the residents of Boston in 1648.

In this presentation, Chris will share the results of the project -- a digital snapshot of lives, relationships and Boston society in 1648 -- and discuss its value to the city and beyond.
