    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 Department of Theatre presents "Middletown," by playwright Will Eno.
    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The Department of Theatre presents "Middletown," by playwright Will Eno. In this delicate and wry amble along the collective road to nowhere, the folks are friendly, and the view of star-dappled skies and modest homes is familiar and comforting. Yet nestled amid all the homey detail is a prickly awareness on the awesome mystery of existence, the void whence everything came and into which it all may one day go. "We talk about the miracle of birth and the mystery of death," says Eno. "But, by definition, all of our lives take place in the middle of those two sorts of knowable events, in this great and unexamined middle, just going to the store and fixing the sink and looking for love and getting up in the morning. Because that's how we live." The strange beauty of life and its sometimes unbearable weight are both considered with a screwball lyricism in this play; and a casual acknowledgement of the despair nibbling at the edge of the sensitive psyche is just another part of everyday life. Free to Denison students. Ticket prices are $8 for general admission, $5 for senior citizens, and $4 for students. For reservations, contact the box office at 740-587-6527.

    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.

    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 Department of Economics welcomes a speaker Matt Gnagey.
    Show Event Details
    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.

    The Department of Theatre presents "Middletown," by playwright Will Eno.
    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The Department of Theatre presents "Middletown," by playwright Will Eno. In this delicate and wry amble along the collective road to nowhere, the folks are friendly, and the view of star-dappled skies and modest homes is familiar and comforting. Yet nestled amid all the homey detail is a prickly awareness on the awesome mystery of existence, the void whence everything came and into which it all may one day go. "We talk about the miracle of birth and the mystery of death," says Eno. "But, by definition, all of our lives take place in the middle of those two sorts of knowable events, in this great and unexamined middle, just going to the store and fixing the sink and looking for love and getting up in the morning. Because that's how we live." The strange beauty of life and its sometimes unbearable weight are both considered with a screwball lyricism in this play; and a casual acknowledgement of the despair nibbling at the edge of the sensitive psyche is just another part of everyday life. Free to Denison students. Ticket prices are $8 for general admission, $5 for senior citizens, and $4 for students. For reservations, contact the box office at 740-587-6527.

    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.

    The Tuesday Lunch Series welcomes Mark Orten presenting “Religious Beliefs and Practices at Denison.”
    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The Tuesday Lunch Series welcomes Mark Orten, director of religious and spiritual life, presenting “Religious Beliefs and Practices at Denison.” In the Spring of 2013 the Center for Religious and Spiritual Life at Denison contracted with the Inter-Faith Youth Core in Chicago to administer a comprehensive survey to the entire student body with a 19.02% response rate. This assessment gives us baseline information regarding (1) overall religious identity and engagement among Denison students, (2) perceptions regarding the existing religious/spiritual communities and campus resources for religious/spiritual engagement (including its staff, facilities, programs) and, (3) general sentiments with regard to the importance of religious and spiritual dimensions of students’ experience at Denison (such as engaging questions of morality and ethics, participating in spiritual practices, etc.) as a part of their undergraduate education. Results of this survey and reflections by the Director of the CRSL and Chaplaincy Intern will be presented. Open to emeriti faculty, faculty and staff.
