    7:30 PM
    The Global Studies Seminar welcomes Catherine Stuer presenting "Home in a Global Landscape: pictorial self-writing in early 19th Century China."
    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The Global Studies Seminar welcomes Catherine Stuer, assistant professor of Asian Art History, presenting "Home in a Global Landscape: pictorial self-writing in early 19th Century China." The talk focuses on an expansive pictorial autobiography designed and self-published by a painter from Nanjing in 1832. In this widely circulated production, the author appropriates landscapes of hometown, region, and the world in novel and crafted strategies of self-representation. I see his case as part and parcel of a broader phenomenon of self-representational interests in 19th-century China, articulating a world-consciousness in which the global and personal were intimately related. Apart from their attraction as highly inventive autobiographical projects, individual productions such as these invite us to rethink China’s perceived cultural insularity at the threshold of its confrontation with colonial modernity.

    The Department of Economics welcomes a speaker Matt Gnagey.
    Show Event Details
    Full Description: "Buried Streams: Environmental Regulations and Land Development" by Matt Gnagey, Ph.D. candidate in agricultural, environmental and development Economics, The Ohio State University. Section 404 of the Clean Water Act (CWA) regulates the “waters of the United States” to minimize degradation of wetlands. In 1985 the CWA regulations changed, preventing residential land developers from burying streams under new subdivisions. This study analyzes the efficacy of this regulation as well as illustrates potential tradeoffs between water resource protection and land fragmentation. Impacts are identified by treating the new regulation as a natural experiment. Two difference-in-difference techniques are utilized to estimate the change in development timing and the change in development density. Results from this study show that the regulation significantly delayed development of affected parcels but also decreased development density exacerbating urban sprawl. Free and open to the public.

    The Global Studies Seminar welcomes William Youmans presenting "Al Jazeera in America: Media Economics and the Cultural Politics of US-Arab Relations."
    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The Global Studies Seminar welcomes William Youmans presenting "Al Jazeera in America: Media Economics and the Cultural Politics of US-Arab Relations."With the launch of Al Jazeera America in August, 2013, the Qatar-sponsored network capped off nearly 7 years of failure to break into the US cable news market with its global English news channel. As a channel that was once deemed a terrorist mouthpiece and then hailed as a force for reform during the Arab spring, Al Jazeera is testing the limits of America's marketplace of ideas and exposes the unlikely promise of greater intercultural understanding in US-Arab relations. Youmans is an assistant professor at the School of Media and Public Affairs at George Washington University. Broadly interested in questions of transnationalism and news media in conflict, his primary research interests include global news media, journalism, media law, and social movements. Other areas of interest include contemporary American public diplomacy, terrorism and international broadcasting.

    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The Tuesday Lunch Series welcomes Mark Orten, director of religious and spiritual life, presenting “Religious Beliefs and Practices at Denison.” In the Spring of 2013 the Center for Religious and Spiritual Life at Denison contracted with the Inter-Faith Youth Core in Chicago to administer a comprehensive survey to the entire student body with a 19.02% response rate. This assessment gives us baseline information regarding (1) overall religious identity and engagement among Denison students, (2) perceptions regarding the existing religious/spiritual communities and campus resources for religious/spiritual engagement (including its staff, facilities, programs) and, (3) general sentiments with regard to the importance of religious and spiritual dimensions of students’ experience at Denison (such as engaging questions of morality and ethics, participating in spiritual practices, etc.) as a part of their undergraduate education. Results of this survey and reflections by the Director of the CRSL and Chaplaincy Intern will be presented. Open to emeriti faculty, faculty and staff.

    The Tuesday Lunch Series welcomes Margot Singer presenting “The Bendable Art of Creative Nonfiction.”
    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The Tuesday Lunch Series welcomes Margot Singer presenting “The Bendable Art of Creative Nonfiction.” Creative nonfiction—including memoir, narrative journalism, personal and lyric essays—is arguably the most exciting area on the literary scene today. But in recent years, the hot debate over where to draw the line between fact and fiction has sidelined important questions of literary form. How does nonfiction actually work? How does it recombine and transform elements of other genres? What distinguishes nonfiction from other kinds of prose? This presentation will share highlights from a new collection of critical essays, "Bending Genre: Essays on Creative Nonfiction," in which leading writers explore nonfiction’s hybridism, innovative structures, and unconventional forms. Open to emeriti faculty, faculty and staff.
