    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 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.

    Global Studies Seminar welcomes Denison President Adam Weinberg presenting "Constructing Global Universities and Colleges."
    Show Event Details
    Full Description: Global Studies Seminar welcomes Denison President Adam Weinberg presenting "Constructing Global Universities and Colleges." Internationalization continues to be a priority for colleges and universities. What it means and how it is constructed is contested terrain. The lack of clarity and focus has led to forms of internationalization driven by action (more is better) with little emphasis on the impact for students, institutions and communities. In this talk, Dr. Weinberg will outline the history of the internationalization of higher education, examine the current drivers of the internationalization agenda, and suggest a set of principles that could harness the power of higher education and potential of internationalization in ways that positively impact students, institutions and communities. Free and open to the public.

    Global Studies Seminar welcomes Beti Ellerson presenting "The Black Woman in the French Imaginary: Exploring the motto “liberté, égalité, fraternité” in the context of féminité, identité, racialité.”
    Show Event Details
    Full Description: Global Studies Seminar welcomes Beti Ellerson, visiting assistant professor, presenting "The Black Woman in the French Imaginary: Exploring the motto “liberté, égalité, fraternité” in the context of féminité, identité, racialité.” The talk explores representations of the Africa-descended woman in the French imagination from the beginning of the 1800s to the present. As allegory of the republic, as racialized sexual spectacle, as muse, as object of desire, the image of the black woman has ­­­­traversed the French cultural, social and political landscape. The presentation examines the discursive representation of women of color of African descent spanning more than two centuries. Framing contemporary discourse on femininity, identity and raciality, the talk interrogates notions of liberty, gender and the body from late 18th century France to present.

    Full Description: Global Studies Seminar welcomes Charlotte Karem Albrecht, the Consortium for Faculty Diversity Postdoctoral Fellow in Women's Studies, presenting "Peddling an Arab American History: Race, Gender, and Sexuality in Early Syrian American Communities." Despite complexities, historical accounts and analysis of the early Arab American community have preferred to understand Arab migrants and their American-born children as successfully integrating into American society and, implicitly, "ascending" into whiteness.

    The Global Studies Seminar welcomes Ping Yang presenting "Chinese Philosophy and Human Communication."
    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The Global Studies Seminar welcomes Ping Yang presenting "Chinese Philosophy and Human Communication." The three major philosophical forces of Confucianism, Buddhism, and Daoism have made great impacts on Chinese culture and communication patterns. This talk deals with communication from the perspective of Chinese philosophy, including the application of the thoughts of the three major philosophical forces and other schools to the levels of interpersonal, intercultural, and political communication. It approaches the topics through a harmony theory of Chinese communication, which makes significant contributions to the contemporary conceptualizations of Hexie, a widely adopted concept and communication practice in China’s current social settings. Ping Yang is assistant professor in the Department of Communication. Her teaching and scholarship focus on the intersections of culture, communication, and technology. Her primary research interests include identity construction, cultural adaptation, and intercultural online communication. Yang received her Ph.D. in intercultural communication from Arizona State University. Her M.A. degrees are in communication from Bowling Green State University and linguistics from Xi'an International Studies University.

    Full Description: The Global Studies Seminar welcomes Andy McCall presenting "Honeybee Colony Collapse: A Global Perspective. Honeybee colonies across the globe have suffered a high proportion of failure in the past ten years, which has been termed colony collapse disorder (CCD). In this presentation, McCall will explain how global trade and travel promote CCD, and some economic reasons why the media covers CCD so extensively in North America. McCall will close by detailing various statutes passed by the U.S. and the E.U. that aim to limit the spread and impact of CCD. Andy McCall is an associate professor of biology at Denison. He spent the last year studying honeybee pollination in the Sonoran desert.

    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.

    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.
