    The Global Studies Seminar features Kirk Combe discussing Stephen Colbert and Sangeet Kumar examining the grammar of contention on the Indian web.
    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The Global Studies Seminar welcomes Kirk Combe and Sangeet Kumar with two presentations, "Stephen Colbert: Great Satirist, or Greatest Satirist Ever?” by Combe and “Contagious Memes, Viral Parodies and the Grammar of Contention on the Indian Web,” by Kumar. The two presentations will interrogate the increasingly salient political role of parody and satire in the global public sphere. Kirk Combe’s talk will analyze the performance of Stephen Colbert to challenge dominant readings of his style as modernist. Instead, by showing how his style inhabits the ambiguous zone of indeterminacy and linguistic freeplay, his presentation will seek to position Colbert centrally within the postmodern style. In so doing Combe will also challenge interpretations of postmodernity as nihilistic “chaos” to make a case for its alignment with the genre of satire. Sangeet Kumar’s talk will analyze the emerging culture of social and political critique on the Indian web in order to understand how the convergence of a networked culture with tropes of parody and satire has created a new language for subversive discourse in India. Through analyzing specific examples of memes and viral videos he argues that this critique is defined by the syntax of “repetition with difference” both at the level of the medium and at the level of the text.

    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The Laura C. Harris Symposium welcomes author Randa Jarrar presenting a lecture, "Mapping Home." Co-sponsored by the Laura C. Harris Symposium and the Beck Lecture Series. Randa Jarrar is an award-winning novelist, short story writer, essayist, and translator. Randa grew up in Kuwait and Egypt, and moved to the US after the first Gulf War. Her 2008 novel, A Map of Home, chronicles the coming-of-age of Nidali- whose name is a feminization of the word ‘struggle’- a rebellious girl born in 1970’s Boston who then moves with her family to a very different life in Kuwait. Feminism has had much to say about mothers and motherhood; but how can feminist analysis and activism be applied to the idea of childhood or to children’s lives in local and transnational contexts?

"Unfortunately I have to reschedule a few shows until later in the year. I am doing fine, but have to have a procedure done next week which will take me a few weeks to recover from.

We hope to bring him back for a future festival. In Ralph's place, I have secured "The Ruhks." The band roster includes three of the premiere performers in bluegrass music: Kenny Smith, Ronnie Bowman, and Don Rigsby. In addition to the performance The Ruhks will be presenting workshops starting at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, February 7, in the Burke Rehearsal Room.

    The Global Studies Seminar welcomes Xioa Jiang and Luis Villanueva presenting "Smith, Malthus, and Recent Evidences in Global Population Dynamics."
    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The Global Studies Seminar welcomes Xioa Jiang and Luis Villanueva presenting "Smith, Malthus, and Recent Evidences in Global Population Dynamics." In conventional economic theories, the change of population is determined “exogenously” outside of the economic system. However, classical political economists Adam Smith and Thomas Malthus have long argued for the “endogenous” determination of population, hence establishing a connection between economics and demography. In this paper, we borrow their ideas to empirically examine the evolution of the relationship between per capita outputs and population dynamics for the period of 1970 – 2008 on a global scale. We find empirical evidences that correspond to both Smith and Malthus’s arguments. In this paper, we also conduct a projection for the additional real income needed for the global population to stabilize. Xiao Jiang is an assistant professor of economics and a consultant for the International Labor Organization (ILO) and Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASAN). His research interests are international trade and development, classical political economy, economic modeling, and history of economic thought. Luis Villanueva is an assistant professor of economics and member of the Young Scholars Initiative of the Institute of New Economic Thinking (INET). His research interests are economic development in third world countries, economic history of Latin America and classical political economy.

    Full Description: The Denison Museum welcomes Nicholas Powers, visiting English Scholar from SUNY Old Westbury, presenting a Brown Bag Gallery Talk titled "How to See a Scar: Kara Walker and the Question of Reading." RSVP to the museum at museum@denison.edu. How are we taught to read power? When studying Kara Walker's work, inevitably the question turns from the art itself to how we, the audience, "see" racism. The goal of this gallery talk is to foreground the production of cultural space and the regimes of reading around racial imagery. Does the space that her work encourage awareness of the historical trauma that is the very source of the art? Or does it recreate the dynamics of racism by offering a spectacle of sexual violence?

    The Global Studies Seminar welcomes Trey Proctor presenting, "Female Slave Litigants, Gendered Rhetoric, and Abuse in Colonial Lima, Peru."
    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The Global Studies Seminar welcomes Trey Proctor presenting, "Female Slave Litigants, Gendered Rhetoric, and Abuse in Colonial Lima, Peru." ABSTRACT: This talk focuses on the concrete practices of spending time and sharing newspapers in a network of outdoor reading rooms or “footpath libraries” established by the Pune Municipal Corporation in 2004-2005. Drawing on conversations with readers I met at these sites, I suggest that the social institution of the newspaper library itself can be read as a site of cultural assertion for a new kind of urban community. With a nod to Benedict Anderson, whose central assertion in Imagined Communities was rooted in the idea of strangers communing through novels and newspapers, I call these accidental communities. Accidental, because partaking in the sociality of the reading room is born less of established social relationships than of accidents of history and geography. But communities, nevertheless, because the men (and it is only men) who come together in these spaces do so not just to read but also, importantly, to claim a place in the changing city. BIO: Matthew Rosen teaches in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at Ohio University in Athens, Ohio. He received his Ph.D. in anthropology from The New School for Social Research in New York City. His dissertation concerned a community of readers in Pune, a city of 3 million in western India, where he carried out 22 months of research with the support of AIIS, Fulbright, and NSF grants. Matthew’s current research examines the changing nature of “ordinary reading” in an age of mass literacy and global communication.

    Full Description: The Global Studies Seminar welcomes Liam Anderson presenting "The Rise of ISIS: Implications for the Future of Iraq.” Abstract: More than ten years on from the invasion of Iraq, the country’s new political order looks to be in serious trouble. ISIS’s rapid conquest of large swathes of northern and western Iraq in the wake of a disintegrating Iraqi army is symptomatic of the country’s fundamental fragility as a state and nation. The stated intent of Kurdish leaders to stage a vote on independence and the emergence of a Shia secessionist movement in the south have led many to argue, indeed, that the very existence of Iraq as a coherent territorial entity is a stake. To what extent does the emergence of ISIS threaten the survival of Iraq? Despite the gravity of the situation, a recent change in the country’s political leadership offers some grounds for optimism both that ISIS can be defeated, and that divisive political issues, such as oil and gas, and federalism, can finally be resolved. In this way, the rise of ISIS potentially provides an opportunity and catalyst for the badly needed recalibration of Iraq’s political system. Bio: Liam Anderson obtained his MPhil in International Relations from Cambridge University, UK, and his PhD in Political Science from the University of Georgia. He is currently a Professor of Political Science at Wright State University, where he teaches classes in Comparative Politics and International Relations. His research interests include issues of constitutional design, particularly with reference to ethnically divided states, such as Iraq. His books include, The Future of Iraq: Dictatorship, Democracy, or Division (2005) and Crisis in Kirkuk: The Ethnopolitics of Conflict and Compromise (2009) (both with Gareth Stansfield), An Atlas of Middle Eastern Affairs (with EW Anderson) (2011), and Federal Solutions to Ethnic Problems (2013).

    This year's theme at TEDxDenisonU will be “Creative Destruction.”
    Show Event Details
    Full Description: This year's theme at TEDxDenisonU will be “Creative Destruction.” Creative Destruction, a phrase coined by the economist Joseph Schumpeter, refers in economic terms to the “process of industrial mutation that incessantly revolutionizes the economic structure from within, incessantly destroying the old one, incessantly creating a new one.” We're taking that theme and broadening it, not only to the field of economics, but also to creative destruction in how we think about ecology, government, and education. We will be exploring paradigm shifts in these fields, especially where they intersect, and to that end we are looking for speakers to present revolutionary ideas that challenge old ways of doing things while providing a new way forward to better meet human needs. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local events that bring people together to share an experience modeled on the TED (Technology, Entertainment, and Design) Conferences. The TED Conference provides general guidance for TEDx programs, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are autonomous and self-organized. At our second TEDxDenisonU, TEDTalks videos and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in an intimate setting.
