      Join us for an insightful conversation with Cecilia Frometa, Professor at Yale School of Medicine, Rosalia Burke '92, Otolaryngologist and YASC board member, and Andrew Burgie '87, trip-producer for YASC Puerto Rico 2023 and YASC board chair, who will moderate the session. Cecilia and Rosalia will provide an overview of the public health team's projects in Puerto Rico since 2020, address impact and sustainability, and discuss plans for a potential third trip in 2024 focused on education and public health. If you are interested in education and public health, this is a great opportunity to learn more, ask questions, and get involved.

      Working alongside our ground partner Instituto Nueva Escuela (INE), a non-profit organization dedicated to improving Puerto Rico students' academic and socio-emotional outcomes through the implementation of Montessori education in the public school setting, YASC organized two service trips to the communities of Residencial Luis Llorens in March 2020 and most recently in March 2023 in Cantera with a goal of improving their educational and public health activities. In 2020 YASC organized projects in athletics, construction, education, and public health, which took place at the two schools that children from the community attend: Escuela Luis Llorens Torres (pre-k through 6 grade) and Escuela Republica de Peru (7-9 grades). In March 2023, YASC organized similar projects, but expanded its offerings to include environmental and painting of mural projects, which took place at Escuela Manuel Elzaburu y Vizcarrondo, a pre-k through 8 grade, public elementary school located in the hear of the community of Cantera.

Director Craig Bettendorf will join Dean Kathryn Lofton (Yale), George Chauncey (Columbia University), and Hussein Fancy (Yale) for a conversation about the film and the importance of Professor Boswell’s work on Christianity and homosexuality during the AIDS crisis. John Boswell was a revolutionary figure in LGBTQ+ scholarship whose research on religion and homosexuality in the Middle Ages upended the field of Medieval Studies. From Christianity, Social Tolerance, and Homosexuality (1980) to Same-Sex Unions in Premodern Europe (1994), he not only refuted the idea that Christianity was the cause of discrimination against gay people but also enriched medieval history with accounts of a robust gay subculture. At Yale, Professor Boswell was a similarly transformative figure: he joined the faculty in 1975, helped organize the Lesbian and Gay Studies Center at Yale (which later became the Research Fund for Lesbian and Gay Studies), and served as both director of graduate studies and chair of the Department of History. Beloved by students, Boswell, the A. Whitney Griswold Professor of History, was posthumously awarded the Harwood F. Byrnes/Richard B. Sewall Teaching Prize in 1995, the year after he died of complications from AIDS at the age of forty-seven. Not a Tame Lion (Craig Bettendorf, 2022) If the inspiration for the Da Vinci Code’s Robert Langdon were drawn from a single living person, John Boswell would have been the one. He read and translated fourteen ancient and modern languages, became a Yale professor by age thirty, and was granted full access to the highly classified and restricted Vatican archives from which he researched four award-winning books. A world-renowned expert in medieval history and linguistics, John Boswell was also openly gay in an era that was neither tolerant nor accepting. Not a Tame Lion offers first-hand accounts of Boswell’s closest friends, students, colleagues, and family members as they recount his life, his works, and his final days. In a series of interviews interspersed with footage from the ’80s and ’90s, the film depicts how Jeb, as his friends called him, feverishly worked to complete Same-Sex Unions in Premodern Europe—a book that changed the trajectory of the marriage equality debate—while privately battling the debilitating effects of AIDS.
