    The Tuesday Faculty Lunch Series welcomes Eric Liebl presenting “Stop Eating and Go Take a Walk!”
    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The Tuesday Faculty Lunch Series welcomes Eric Liebl presenting “Stop Eating and Go Take a Walk!” Liebl's lab uses genetic tools to study how the fruit fly central nervous system organizes itself during early development. Unexpectedly, they have uncovered a genetic interaction that alters the behavior of fly larva (caterpillars). At about four days into development normal fly larva switch from a focus on eating (called the forager stage) to being un- interested in eating and focused on crawling around in preparation to form a pupae (cocoon) (called the wanderer stage). The mutant animals remain foragers. So if you find yourself constantly interested in eating and not especially interested in moving around or exercising, this talk may be of interest.

    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The Tuesday Faculty Lunch Series welcomes Jack Shuler presenting “The Woman Who (May Have) Stopped the Death Penalty.” The current shortage of lethal injection drugs in the US can be traced, in part, to the work of Reprieve International researcher Maya Foa. Foa's has helped many pharmaceutical companies block the sale of their drugs to death penalty states—including Ohio. But have there been unintended consequences because of her work such as recent botched executions? Or are we witnessing the beginning of the end of the death penalty in the US?

    The Global Studies Seminar welcomes Micaela Vivero presenting "(Im)possible Interventions."
    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The Global Studies Seminar welcomes Micaela Vivero presenting "(Im)possible Interventions." In the project “(Im)possible Interventions” Vivero creates sculptures that are modest in scale, but for which Vivero invents imaginary lives as public sculptures through photomontages. She pretends that they are public sculptures. In this project she uses Photoshop not as a means to show how the sculptures could possibly be if they were enlarged, because there is no intention to ever make them big. Rather, Vivero uses Photoshop as a tool to challenge concepts within the urban landscape. She wants the viewers to ask questions like: Are these real? Would someone build/fund something like that? Vivero encourages the viewer to consider the possibility of something that looks impossible. Micaela Vivero, associate professor and chair of studio art, has been an artist in residence at Bemis Center for Contemporary Art in Omaha/NE/USA, Irish Museum of Modern Art in Dublin/Ireland, Chretzeturm in Stein am Rhein/Switzerland, Koli Ryynaanen in Koli/Finland, Rondo Marienmühle in Graz/Austria, Accoss Foundation in Yerevan/Armenia and Frankfurter Kunstverein in Frankfurt/Germany. She has exhibited her artwork in Ecuador, Brazil, Colombia, Argentina, the USA, Spain, Portugal, Ireland, Switzerland, Finland, Austria, Bulgaria and Armenia.

    Show Event Details
    Full Description: Andy McCall from the Department of Biology presents the Tuesday Lunch program. We normally think of animals behaving, or reacting to stimuli in the environment, but scientists have been studying behavior in plants since Darwin's time. Recently, researchers have found that plants can communicate environmental information to each other, choose host plants to parasitize, and even sense the sounds of insect damage! I will explore these fascinating cases with you and discuss how the study of plant behavior might benefit humankind.

    The Global Studies Seminar welcomes Pierre Dairon presenting "Acadie XXI: Reimagining a Transnational Diaspora."
    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The Global Studies Seminar welcomes Pierre Dairon presenting "Acadie XXI: Reimagining a Transnational Diaspora." The 5th World Acadian Congress took place on mid-August 2014, for the first time over three borders: one between two nation states--the US and Canada--and three between states/provinces--Maine, Québec and New-Brunswick. Each of these borders also embodies mental boundaries for the diasporic Acadian people. Victims of the first planned ethnic cleansing in North America organized by the British between 1755 and 1762, the Acadians were deported and scattered all over the continent, from Quebec to Guyana, from the Caribbean to Louisiana (where they are known as the Cajuns), and even sent back to prisons in England and new settlements in France. Two hundred and fifty years later, in order to bring together again their once united people, they decided to organize every five years a World Acadian Congress that includes family reunions, numerous cultural & folkloric events, and self-reflective colloquium. In a modern world where a land, a language, a religion, a bloodline, a common past or a homogenous memory still constitute the stronghold of an imaginary nation, this presentation will show how the Acadians have been struggling to reconstruct a quite postmodern and fragmented identity in a global milieu. Dairon is an Assistant Professor of French at Kenyon College where he teaches language and Francophone literatures and cultures. His research deals mainly with Francophone literatures of the New World and the way they shape, reflect and intersect with cultural and national discourses and identities--more specifically within the Acadian realm. Mid-August 2014, he attended his second World Acadian Congress and his presentation is going to reflect on this experience and the new perspective he developed, as a scholar, as a guest and as a tourist.

    Full Description: The Tuesday Faculty Lunch Series welcomes Steven Olmschenk presenting “Quantum Information with Atoms and Light.” Rapid advances in information technology have revolutionized the way we go about our daily lives. However, the way this technology stores and processes information is still based on classical physics. Utilizing the features of quantum physics may allow for information processors that could eclipse the power of any conventional computer, and yield insight into the unintuitive theory of quantum physics. After a broad overview, Olmschenk will highlight the effort at Denison University to use laser-cooled, single atomic ions and light to store, process, and transfer quantum information.

Recent works on the politics and sociology of production of corruption as well as other types of indicators have brought attention to the politics and economics of production and deployment of such indicators, especially their impact on governance, both global and local. This talk presents an ethnographic study of the production and deployment of corruption indicators in Albania, a country that relies heavily on international development aid and recently became a candidate for European Union membership. Musaraj traces the production of one corruption perception survey in Albania through a global network of actors and follows the circulation and use of its results among various local political actors. Musaraj is assistant professor of anthropology at Ohio University. Her research focuses on the anthropology of money and value, speculative economic practices in cash economies, corruption indicators and global governance, and postsoscialist transformations.

    The Titus Hepp Series welcomes Rachel Cohon presenting "Promises: Hume, Scanlon, and Voluntary Self-Obligation."
    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The Titus Hepp Series welcomes Rachel Cohon presenting "Promises: Hume, Scanlon, and Voluntary Self-Obligation." Underlying their well-known disagreement about whether we need a social practice in order to make (binding) promises, David Hume and T. M. Scanlon have a deeper disagreement about promises. Surprisingly, Hume regards a voluntary act of self-obligation as essential to promising, while Scanlon does not; and (also surprisingly) Hume does not regard assuring the other person of what you will do as essential to promising, while of course Scanlon does. There are interesting reasons why Hume may have held these positions, and why they might be closer to the truth than Scanlon's. Professor Cohon received her PhD from U.C.L.A. Her fields of interest are ethics, the philosophy of action, and the history of ethics. She teaches graduate courses in moral theory, including such topics as consequentialism vs. deontology vs. virtue ethics, moral realism, the normativity of ethics, and eighteenth century moral philosophy.

    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The Tuesday Faculty Lunch Series welcomes Linda Krumholz presenting “Reading and Responsibility in Toni Morrison’s A Mercy.” In Toni Morrison’s novel “A Mercy,” set in New England in 1690, Florens, a 16-year-old African-American woman, is on a journey to summon the blacksmith to save the life of her Mistress; the blacksmith is a free black man, a healer, and Florens’ lover. The small group of people with whom Florens lives, a multicultural, women-centered, somewhat egalitarian group becomes, for a short time, a family. The blacksmith and Florens reveal the role of African people in the construction of whiteness and Americanness as well as connections between economics, gender, sexuality, law, and religion in emerging constructions of blackness. Through Florens’ quest and the dissolution of the family group, Morrison signals both the failures and the possibilities revealed by revised understandings of American history.

    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The Denison Museum welcomes Robert N. Kraft presenting "Expressing Memories of Atrocity: Words, Images, and the Things People Carry." Kraft is a professor of psychology, at Otterbein University. Beginning in the late 1970s, Holocaust archives began videotaping the oral testimony of Holocaust survivors. Housed in these archives are uniquely authored accounts of traumatic memory: thousands of hours of unconstrained recall from individuals who lived through extended atrocity. These archives then document the recall of personal experiences in the context of larger historical events. As a psychologist, Kraft studies oral testimony of Holocaust survivors to understand memory for atrocity and its aftermath and to characterize the persistent influence of such memory on the lives of the survivors. Unlike the topographic summaries of trauma in large correlational studies or the distant approximations in the laboratory, qualitative study of Holocaust testimony discloses what resides within each person: the <em>phenomenology</em> of the tormented. One goal of this research is to generalize the findings on the psychology of Holocaust survivors to other groups of people, including the survivors of widespread atrocities in Rwanda, Guatemala and Darfur.

    Full Description: The Global Studies Seminar welcomes Susan Diduk presenting “The Political Economy of Corporate Largess: Social Responsibility, Corporations and the Development Enterprise in Sub-Saharan Africa.” Since the 1990s foreign direct investment has grown significantly in Sub-Saharan Africa. This growth is embedded in the neoliberal project with its push toward privatization, deregulation of markets, and capital accumulation. A growing, yet less visible sector in this process, concerns the new corporate social responsibility (CSR) agendas of transnational corporations (TNCs). This paper examines the growth of “development projects” funded by transnational business, for example, in areas like education, healthcare and potable water. Diduk consider's such “community development” initiatives funded by TNCs and their interconnected relationships with the state, as well as local urban and rural communities in the Republic of Cameroon. I examine especially the intended and unintended effects of these policies, and their deeply troubling implications for “development encounters” more broadly.
