    Thavolia Glymph, the John Hope Franklin Visiting Professor of American Legal History and a professor in the departments of History and African & African American Studies at Duke University will give the annual Robert R. Wilson Lecture titled, "'You will please let me know if we are free:' The Dissolution of Property Rights in Human Beings in War and the Bounds of Freedom." In August of 1864, Annie Davis wrote a letter to President Abraham Lincoln. She expressed her "desire to be free" and asked Lincoln to let her know if she was indeed free. Did her mistress still have a property right in her or could she leave and go where she pleased? Davis' query addressed a fundamental question: when did slavery end? This lecture explores that question - the indeterminate status of black people in the South - during the Civil War and after the passage of the 13th Amendment. Sponsored by the Office of the Dean.

    On May 6, 2010, the Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 9% in mere minutes - the biggest intraday drop in the Index's history. This "Flash Crash", opened the eyes of regulators to the reality that they had little insight into who was doing what in the trading markets. In fact, it took four and a half months for the regulators to publish a report as to why the crash occurred. Realizing its inability to provide answers, the SEC proposed the Consolidated Audit Trail (CAT) soon after the crash. After seven years in development and implementation, the exchanges are on the verge of starting to report information to the system that has been developed. Join us as Robert Walley from Deloitte and Tyler Gellasch from Healthy Markets, discuss the CAT's development and ongoing controversies. Lunch will be provided.

    Free. Advanced registration required. Principles of academic freedom and free speech are central to a university's identity, but they are not simple. Some argue these values are unnecessarily invoked to defend actions that gratuitously target and harm students, faculty, and other members of university communities. Others respond that such perceived harms are inevitable if universities are to maintain their commitments to free inquiry and debate. The purpose of the Provost's Forum is to explore these issues in a deeper and more constructive way. Duke University's Mission Statement reaffirms its foundational commitment to promoting "an intellectual environment built on a commitment to free and open inquiry," which encompasses academic freedom, free speech, and freedom of assembly. But the range and application of those principles raise hard questions. Over the course of the day sessions will explore topics such as "Academic Freedom and the Mission of the University," "Civil Discourse Across Divides," and "Assembly, Protest, and Shared Spaces." Sponsored by the Office of the Provost. For a full schedule and registration please visit https://provost.duke.edu/.

    The bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers was the pivotal event of the 2008 financial crisis. Ever since the bankruptcy, there's been heated debate about why the Federal Reserve did not rescue Lehman in the same way it rescued other financial institutions. The Fed's leaders strongly asserted that they lacked the legal authority to save Lehman because it did not have adequate collateral for the loan it needed to survive. In his new book, "The Fed and Lehman Brothers", Laurence Ball argues that the official narrative of the crisis is wrong; the Fed could have rescued Lehman but chose not to because of political pressures and an underestimation of the damage the bankruptcy would do to the economy. Join us as we hear from Mr. Ball, a professor of economics at Johns Hopkins, who will discuss insights from his book. Lunch will be provided. Sponsored by the Global Financial Markets Center.

    The 2018 midterm election is being acknowledged as The Year of the Woman, Part II; a reference to the 1992 election that saw women running in record numbers following Justice Thomas' Supreme Court confirmation. But 1992, which resulted in four female senators heading to D.C., has nothing on 2018. The midterm elections saw a 75% increase in women of color Congressional nominees since 2012, sustained by over 400 Black women who ran for office at every level, and a record number of Native American women candidates, among others. WLSA invites you to take a moment to celebrate the record-breaking number of women elected to Congress (over 100!) with candy, an Instagram photo-op (follow @dukelawwlsa), and a brainstorming session about how to keep the momentum going and improve election results in 2020.

In this session we address AI: Risks & Responses. The rapid development of artificial intelligence promises to have huge societal impacts. It could help to solve multiple challenges in health care and disease, energy and climate change, data analysis, and poverty, in addition to changing the consumer experience. At the same time there are potentially profoundly negative ramifications of AI and its effects on the power of the surveillance state, democratic processes, employment and worker displacement, and indeed the very nature of what it means to be human. What are risks of AI and how do we respond? We'll have a moderated discussion with two scholars at Duke to think about these issues: Vincent Conitzer, Kimberly J. Jenkins University Professor of New Technologies and Professor of Computer Science, Professor of Economics, and Professor of Philosophy and Walter Sinnott-Armstrong, Chauncey Stillman Professor of Practical Ethics in the Department of Philosophy, and the Kenan Institute for Ethics.
