    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.

    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.

    Philosophy Coffee looks at the obligations of friendship
    Show Event Details
    Full Description: Philosophy Coffee looks at the obligations of friendship in "Friendship, Trust, and Truth-Telling." Philosophers such as Sarah Stroud and Simon Keller claim that friendship requires that we value the words of our friends above those of strangers. But does friendship actually place such demands upon us? Does friendship require that we give our friends the benefit of the doubt? Does it require that we be skeptical about negative information we receive concerning our friends? Does being someone’s friend require that we trust their word above that of others? Free and open to the others.

    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.

    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.

    Full Description: The University Programing Council welcomes Jose Antonio Vargas. A journalist for over a decade, writing for some of the most prestigious news organizations in the country, Jose Antonio Vargas’ personal journey contends with some of the most fascinating stories he’s covered, living a double life since he was 16 years old. After being born and reared in the Philippines, his mother, wanting to give her son a better life, sent him to live with his grandparents in Silicon Valley in 1993. Vargas loved his new homeland and immersed himself in American culture, spoke the language perfectly, studied hard in school and loved writing for the school paper. However, at 16-years-old, when applying for his learner’s permit, he discovered his green card was a fake, which was later confirmed by his grandfather. Vargas then realized he needed to continue hiding his true identity to avoid deportation and be able to pursue his American dream – a career in journalism. Vargas will discuss his long career in journalism, his website, DefineAmerican.com, and he will delve into his personal life's journey which will address issues that are facing our world today, including illegal immigration and trying to navigate life in America as an openly gay male.

    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.

But Cloud Computing means different things to different constituencies, from IT professionals to Financial Officers to Computer Scientists to ordinary users. And there is more than a little marketing hype that clouds the subject even further (pun intended). The goal of this talk is threefold -- first, we want to fill in the gaps and unify the perspectives of exactly what constitutes cloud computing. Second, we want to sort through the hype and see what opportunities are presented by Cloud Computing. And third, we will look, from a computer science perspective, at the challenges and interesting problems that arise from this new paradigm of computing. Open to emeriti faculty,faculty and staff.

Less well known is the explosive movement to protect private lands in this country. Privately held land under conservation or agricultural protection now encompasses about 50 million acres in the U.S.--nearly the same area as our national parks. Protection of these private lands is overseen by 1,700 local, state, and national Land Trusts. In this presentation I'll explore the role of Land Trusts in terms of land use planning, community building and ecological conservation. In particular, I'll explain the work of our very own Licking Land Trust. Open to emeriti faculty, faculty and staff.

Colleges then partner with the Posse Foundation to award these students full tuition scholarships and the opportunity to pursue personal and academic excellence as members of supportive, multicultural teams—Posses—of 10 students. Now that Denison has had more than a decade of experience with the Posse Program it is time to reflect on Posse and Denison. Has this programmatic initiative been primarily a pragmatic opportunity? Or has it helped Denison to foster a utopian ideal? Open to emeriti faculty, faculty and staff.

    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.

    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: "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.

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.

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.

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.

    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.

    Full Description: David Howitt, a member of the Denison class of 1990, will speak about his new book,"Heed Your Call: Integrating Myth, Science, Spirituality, and Business." "So many of us suffocate in our cubicles; we’re afraid to become the hero of our own life story. We need a modern-day manifesto for the innovator whose creativity is stifled, the job hunter losing hope, the spiritual seeker afraid of financial success, the professional who no longer feels connected and fulfilled. Life is not an either/or prospect—you can have it all," says entrepreneur David M. Howitt in “Heed Your Call: Integrating Myth, Science, Spirituality, and Business. “ Armed with an uncanny ability to understand the lifeblood of a fledgling entrepreneur, Howitt, a business mentor who has closely guided companies and Fortune 100 leaders, has a proven track record of helping small business owners distill their passion and use it to grow the brand to its maximum potential, creatively and financially. He shares the stories behind his and others’ unique success in 11 real-world lessons in his new book. Howitt accompanies readers “along their journey to help them bridge the gap between commerce and their heart-centered desires. We all have the extraordinary within us, waiting to be released.” He shares his uncompromisingly honest personal experience and examines the foundation-altering paths taken by some of today’s most impressive entrepreneurs on their way to becoming heroes of their own lives.

    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The Department of Environmental Studies presents an exhibition, "Farmscapes," a juried exhibition from the spring semester Farmscapes class. The 2014 Farmscape Juried Exhibition celebrates the work of sixteen Denison University students who have spent a semester learning about the American food system through the lens of a camera. After visits to farms, meat processing facilities, and a produce distribution center, mill, commercial greenhouse operation, dining service kitchen, and creamery, each student submitted his or her own best work. Our juror, local artist Christian Faur, chose 34 images for the exhibition. In his remarks about the show, Mr. Faur notes that “the images the students took beautifully held the essence of the places they visited during these winter months. Their photos offer us a range of intimately framed textures and patterns along with a glimpse into the day-to-day life of the people and the places where our food comes from.” Along the same lines, Abram Kaplan, the instructor of the class, reflects, “each year, the artistic quality of the class improves, and this year, I have been particularly impressed with the students’ eye for the particulars of our food system. They have been working in the relatively new arena of arts-based research this term, and have had their sensibilities challenged on many levels. It is very gratifying to see the aesthetic discernment they have attained – most of them with no artistic background before this course!”
