Virtual Lunch and Learn: "Trustworthy, Loyal, Beleaguered: A Decade of Good Intentions in Boy Scouts"

Friday, October 23, 2020 - 12:00pm until 1:00pm

In the last decade, the Boy Scouts of America has struggled to honor its storied history while also responding to rapid social change. Since its 100th anniversary in 2010, the BSA changed membership policies, faced criticism from Native Americans for appropriation of cultural dress and ceremonies, and filed for bankruptcy to compensate victims who were abused during their time in Scouting. Join us as USC Lancaster Professor of English Dr. Lisa Hammond interweaves her experience as a veteran Scout leader and the mother of an Eagle Scout with a discussion of BSA's difficult evolution. To register, send your email to usclnasp@mailbox.sc.edu and the Native American Studies Center will send respond with the meeting ID and password required to join the program.
