    The Tuesday Faculty Lunch Series welcomes Gill Miller presenting "Monomoy Place--Oh, the stories these walls could tell!”
    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The Tuesday Faculty Lunch Series welcomes Gill Miller, associate professor of dance, presenting "Monomoy Place--Oh, the stories these walls could tell!.” Denison’s President’s house wasn’t always elegant. For the first 100 years, it was the office for two doctors, subject of a protracted family lawsuit, home to a peripatetic family, and finally renovated by a railroad conductor-made-good. In the second hundred years, it was used as home for a spinster and a widow, was cooperative housing for female students, barracks for marines, and satellite housing for frat boys before it fell into such disrepair that it took quite some negotiations to convince the university to salvage it. Oh, the stories these walls could tell! Open to emeriti faculty, faculty and staff.

    The Global Studies Seminar welcomes Fadhel Kaboub presenting "Can the Eurozone Survive without Financial Sovereignty?"
    Show Event Details
    Full Description: Fadhel Kaboub, assistant professor of economics will present a lecture, "Can the Eurozone Survive without Financial Sovereignty?" This presentation argues that the 17 eurozone countries have sacrificed a fundamental economic lifeline by giving up their financial sovereignty to the European Central Bank. Without full financial sovereignty, countries like Greece, Spain and Portugal are forced to abide by very stringent austerity policies to reduce government spending and raise taxes in order to balance the budget and payoff the national debt. In the meanwhile, unemployment continues to rise (28% in Greece) and economic misery threatens an entire generation of young European men and women (64% youth unemployment in Greece). Can the eurozone survive its first debt crisis? Can there be a successful European single currency union without a truly sovereign financial authority? Are Germany and France still immune from a sovereign debt crisis? What's their secret? All of these questions and many more will be answered during this interactive Global Studies session. Free and open to the public.

    The Global Studies Seminar welcomes Russell Shekha presenting “Universal Human Rights as Power Resources: Social Spending in 18 Latin American Nations from 1980-2010,”
    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The Global Studies Seminar welcomes Russell Shekha, assistant professor of sociology/anthropology, presenting “Universal Human Rights as Power Resources: Social Spending in 18 Latin American Nations from 1980-2010.,” In this study Shekha analyzes the determinants of social security and welfare, health, and education spending levels in 18 Latin American nations from 1980-2010 using pooled, time-series methods. Welfare state studies of Western samples focus mostly on the effects of industrialization, demographics, politics and labor, and economic globalization, though expansions to developing nations further emphasize the effects of regime type and neoliberal globalization. Shekha extends Power Resource theory to include universal human rights as important political tools and actors that can protect the welfare state in regions such as Latin America. He shows, regardless of their varying effects, that international human rights treaty ratifications and National Human Rights Institutions adoptions explain variations in social spending levels in Latin America as well or better than traditional welfare state theories. These results suggest that just as economic globalization often works to dismantle the welfare state, universal human rights are powerful internationally-based political resources implemented at the national level to resist retrenchments caused by neoliberalism. Free and open to the public.

    The Department of Modern Languages presents "Berlin 1885: The Division of Africa"
    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The Department of Modern Languages presents "Berlin 1885: The Division of Africa." Exposing one of the most ignominious—and little-studied—events of the past 130 years, Joël Calmettes’s exemplary documentary chronicles the Berlin Conference on Africa. At this meeting, held at Chancellor Otto von Bismarck’s official residence in Berlin, the major European countries and the US divided up the vast continent for their own personal gain without the presence of a single African; proceedings which set in motion the ruinous colonization of Africa that would irrevocably and disastrously change the fate of that land. Free and open to the public.

    The Global Studies Seminar welcomes Lena Salaymeh presenting “Invisible civilians: the legal rhetoric of contemporary warfare.”
    Show Event Details
    Full Description: Lena Salaymeh, Robbins Postdoctoral Fellow, UC Berkeley School of Law, will present a lecture, “Invisible civilians: the legal rhetoric of contemporary warfare.” Her presentation examines recent quasi-legal positions that seek to legitimize the killing of civilians in warfare. She argues that both state and non-state actors use the same basic legal analysis and argumentation in laying claim to the "legality" (in Islamic or international terms) of their violent acts. The broader intervention demonstrates how similar so-called "secular" and "religious" legal arguments really are. Free and open to the public.

    Global Studies Seminar features Jonathan Walley presenting “Acting Locally, (Not) Thinking Globally: Avant-garde Cinema as a National and International Art Form”
    Show Event Details
    Full Description: Global Studies Seminar welcomes Jonathan Walley, associate professor of cinema, presenting “Acting Locally, (Not) Thinking Globally: Avant-garde Cinema as a National and International Art Form.” The avant-garde in cinema, as in the other arts, has long been considered an “international” phenomenon, a “global” community not defined or constrained by national or regional boundaries. While there is truth to this, and political value in the concept, thinking of avant-garde cinema in this way can overlook important national and regional distinctions among avant-garde filmmaking practices. This talk is about the tension between attributing global unity to the cinematic avant-garde and recognizing its local specificities, featuring examples of hard-to-find work from Europe, Japan, and North and South America. Free and open to the public.

    Show Event Details
    Full Description: Erik Klemetti, assistant professor of geosciences presents a Global Studies Seminar: "Lost Monsters: Forgotten Giant Eruptions and How They Impacted the Planet."Very large volcanic eruptions can have a profound impact on the Earth's climate. They are singular events that can throw billions of tons of volcanic ash and aerosols like sulfur dioxide and carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. However, as large as these events might be, some of the biggest eruptions in the past 15,000 years are unknown to most people. This talk will look at five eruptions from around the globe that are historically obscure but volcanically profound, including very large eruptions in New Zealand (Taupo), Germany (Laacher See), Peru (Huaynaputina), Mexico (El Chichón) and Alaska (White River). These events erupted over 10 cubic kilometers of volcanic ash and debris, making them some of the largest in human history. Eruptions of this magnitude today could have a sizable impact on global travel and agriculture, yet climate and culture have proven to be resilient in the face of these massive events. Free and open to the public.

    The Spectrum Series welcomes Ronald Sandler presenting "The Ethics of De-Extinction."
    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The Spectrum Series welcomes Ronald Sandler presenting "The Ethics of De-Extinction." Due to advances in genetics and synthetic biology there now appears to be a plausible pathway for reviving species that have been extinct for decades, centuries, or even millennia. Many people are excited about the prospect of bringing species such as the passenger pigeon, tasmanian devil, and mammoth "back from the dead." In this talk Sandler will discuss the social, ethical, and ecological aspects of de-extinction and ask whether it is something that we ought to pursue. Ronald Sandler is an Associate Professor of Philosophy and the Director of the Ethics Institute at Northeastern University—and a Denison alum. Winner of Northeastern's Excellence in Teaching Award, he is a leading figure in the "environmental virtue ethics" movement. He is the author of Character and Environment (Columbia) and the forthcoming Ethics and Species (Cambridge), and has published widely on issues in environmental ethics, environmental justice, and the philosophy of technology with special emphasis on nanotechnology. Free and open to the public.

    The Spectrum Series welcomes Ronald Sandler presenting "A Defense of the Moral Status of Artifacts?”
    Show Event Details
    Full Description: Ronald Sandler presents "A Defense of the Moral Status of Artifacts?” It is a common view in applied ethics that artifacts – things created by us for our ends (e.g. computers, cars, water bottles, and pencils) – do not have direct moral status. They do not have interests that need to be consider when our actions or policies impact them, so we can treat them however we like. In this talk Sandler will discuss whether this view is reasonable and explore the possibility that we might have responsibilities to the artifacts that we create. Ronald Sandler is an associate professor of Philosophy and the Director of the Ethics Institute at Northeastern University—and a Denison alum. Winner of Northeastern's Excellence in Teaching Award, he is a leading figure in the "environmental virtue ethics" movement. He is the author of Character and Environment (Columbia) and the forthcoming Ethics and Species (Cambridge), and has published widely on issues in environmental ethics, environmental justice, and the philosophy of technology with special emphasis on nanotechnology.

    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.

    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.

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.

If we imagine this to be the case, does it eclipse the scope of future transformations of white identity, making them literally unimaginable? What are the future possibilities for white identity? This is not just an effort at prediction, as if whiteness is some natural phenomena we can only observe from a distance. Whiteness is an identity born of both history and current practices, so the question of the future is a question about what we should do now, a question constrained in turn by what we can do now.

    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.

    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The Department of Philosophy welcomes Allen Carlson, professor emeritus at the University of Alberta, presenting "What is a Sound Natural Aesthetics for Conservation Policy and Land Management?" Recently a number of environmental philosophers, realizing the importance of aesthetic appreciation in our relationship with the natural environment, have claimed that, as one prominent environmental philosopher puts it: "a sound natural aesthetics is crucial to sound conservation policy and land management." In light of such claims, the question of the nature of "a sound natural aesthetics" warrants consideration. The question has been addressed by several different accounts, ranging from time-honored approaches such as the picturesque tradition and landscape formalism to more recent points of view. This presentation will examine these different positions, arguing that, concerning the question "What is a sound natural aesthetics for conservation policy and land management?" some approaches are more promising than others. Free and open to the public.

    The Department of Philosophy welcomes Amy Kind presenting "Imagining Under Constraints."
    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The Department of Philosophy welcomes Amy Kind presenting "Imagining Under Constraints." As Hume has famously claimed, we are nowhere more free than in our imagination. While this feature of the imagination suggests that the imagination has a crucial role to play in modal epistemology, it also suggests that imagining cannot provide us with any non-modal knowledge about the world in which we live. In this talk, Kind rejects this latter suggestion. Offering an account of imagining that I call "imagining under constraints,” she provides a framework for showing when and how an imaginative project can play a justificatory role with respect to our beliefs about the world. That we can be free in our imaginings does not show that they must proceed unfettered; as she argues, our ability to constrain our imaginings in light of facts about the world enables us to learn from them. The important upshot is that the imagination has considerably more epistemic significance than previously thought. Free and open to the public.
