Fordham Conversations
Tapping into the Fordham University community to discuss and uncover issues that impact our world locally and beyond.

On this week’s Fordham Conversations we look at two holiday traditions, decorations and Christmas cards. First we visit the Garabedian family’s uniquely decorated holiday house, which is near Fordham's Rosehill Campus.   Then a conversation with Professor Kenneth Ames about his book and art exhibit “American Christmas Cards 1900-1960.”  Both examine how Christmas cards are connected to American history and culture.

Filmmakers Mike Campo and Jeff Azize of Grassroots Films discuss their documentary “The Human Experience.”  The two share what it was like living homeless on the streets of New York City; spending time at a leper colony in Africa; and taking care of abused orphans in South America.  We also hear from Father Vincent DeCola, who discusses the impact the film had during its showing at Fordham’s Lincoln Center.
