Membership Lunch with Guest Speaker, Kim Vaz-Deville, PhD
Kim Vaz-Deville, Ph.D. is a professor of education and the associate dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at Xavier University of Louisiana.  Her area of research centers on the use of expressive arts as a response to large group social trauma with attention to women, gender, and insurgency.

Dr. Vaz-Deville’s book, The ‘Baby Dolls’: Breaking the Race and Gender Barriers of the New Orleans Mardi Gras Tradition (LSU Press, 2013), tells the story of an organization of African American women, the Baby Dolls, formed around 1912 and their crucial contribution to Louisiana’s cultural history.  She traces the Baby Dolls’ origins from Storyville brothels and dance halls to their re-emergence in post-Katrina New Orleans and uncovers the fascinating history of the “raddy-walking, shake-dancing, cigar-smoking, money-flinging” ladies who strutted their way into the predominantly male establishment of the Mardi Gras parades.   This book was chosen by the Young Leadership Council (YLC) members and book-loving New Orleanians as the "One Book One New Orleans" title for 2016!

Fee: $25

Society Circle Reception
The Society Circle Reception will be held at the Historic New Orleans Collection (HNCO) http://www.hnoc.org/ in the French Quarter (410 Chartres Street).
 
After an extensive restoration, the HNOC’s Chartres Street location is now home to the Williams Research Center (WRC). City architect Edgar Angelo Christy designed the 1915 Beaux Arts structure, which initially functioned as a police station and municipal courthouse. Today the façade and the reading room—which occupies the former courtroom—are suggestive of the building's earlier design, although the remaining floor space has been reordered to operate as secure, climate-controlled storage.
 
Cocktails and light hors d’oeurves will be served.  Upon request of the HNOC, only white wine (no red or rose) will be available.
 
Society Circle members can tour the reading room and view the Clarence John Laughlin and His Contemporaries: A Picture and a Thousand Words exhibition.  A Louisiana native, Clarence John Laughlin (1905–1985) began his career as a photographer in the 1930s, eventually emerging as one of America’s pioneers in surrealist and experimental photography.  After the reception, you will be close to a wide variety of fabulous dinner options in the French Quarter. 

Attendance at the Society Circle Reception is by invitation only. If you would like to attend, you may donate to this year's Society Circle in your conference registration form or at the Donate Now web-page: https://www.arlisna.org/support/donate-now

Donations to the Society Circle can be targeted toward four existing funds - the Conference Speakers Fund, the Internship Fund, the Alternative Voices Speakers Fund, the Travel Grant Fund, or can be unrestricted and used wherever the need is greatest.
 
Transportation: The HNOC is walking distance (approximately .06 miles from the Hilton Riverside.)  Alternatively, you may take a cab or share a ride with other members.

Convocation with Keynote Speaker, Terrance Osborne

The artist Terrance Osborne is this year’s Convocation keynote speaker. Oborne was born and raised in New Orleans and his artwork reflects the colorful, diverse, vibrant, and culturally-rich nature of the city. He attended the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts (NOCCA) and later graduated with a BFA from Xavier University. After several years teaching art at the Alice S. Harte Elementary School in Algiers, Osborne decided to dedicate his time completely to his artistic practice. In addition to his own artwork, Osborne has created commissions for the Zulu Social Aid & Pleasure Club and the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. His Jazz Fest posters have included the Rebirth Brass Band (2007), Uncle Lionel Batiste (2010), Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews (2012), and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band (2014). All have been popular hits with Jazz Fest audiences, with the Rebirth and Trombone Shorty posters becoming best-sellers. Osborne is a recipient of the honorary “Forty under Forty Award” for his teaching and artistic contributions to New Orleans. Conference attendees can view Osborne’s artwork up close and in person at the Hilton New Orleans Riverside’s parking garage where his “New Orleans Sunset” mural graces the façade.
