Event Date(s) / Time: Sunday, July 18, 2021 3:00 PM - 4:30 PM
Details:

Logo of Department of Theatre and Dance's Virtual Festival Spring 2021


The sinking of the Titanic in the early hours of April 15, 1912, remains the quintessential disaster of the twentieth century. A total of 1,517 souls – men, women, and children lost their lives (only 711 survived). The fact that the finest, largest, strongest ship in the world called, in fact, the “unsinkable” ship-should have been lost during its maiden voyage is so incredible that, had it not actually happened, no author would have dared to contrive it.


 


An epic, sweeping musical drama, TITANIC examines the causes, the conditions, and the characters involved in the ever-fascinating drama of the RSS Titanic. This is the factual story of that ship-of her officer, screw and passengers, to be sure but she will not, as has happened so many times before, serve as merely the background against which fictional, melodramatic narratives are recounted. The central character pf our TITANIC is the Titanic herself.


 


Winner of five Tony Awards including Best Score, Best Book, and Best The musical, this is the factual story of the fascinating and infamous “unsinkable” ship and. most importantly, of her passengers and crew. With a soaring score and filled with disarming with, this musical feature a wide array of characters from various classes and backgrounds unexpectedly sharing their aspirations and facing life’s ultimate questions together.


TITANIC is presented by arrangement with TAMS-WITMARK

Logo of Department of Theatre and Dance's Virtual Festival Spring 2021


Just as timely and provocative as when it debuted in the early ‘80s, Top Girls highlight the sacrifices made by women in their quest for success and what happens to those left behind. With her characteristically bold theatricality, Caryl Churchill examines women in the workplace in Maggie Thatcher’s Britain who choose to take on the worst traits of men. At the heart of her emotionally blistering and sharply witty play, two sisters, one an upwardly mobile businesswoman and the other passionately committed to her working-class roots, battle over personal and deeply held political views in a confrontation that will forever change their lives.

'TASHA, a protest play (Updated)
6/15/2021

Event Date(s) / Time: Sunday, July 11, 2021 3:00 PM - 4:30 PM
Details:

Logo of Department of Theatre and Dance's Virtual Festival Spring 2021


‘TASHA is set in a modern republic. White Nationalists are occupying the government. Black communities are under martial law. Newly elected President Waters rules that from henceforth all who defy the police are criminals and will remain unburied should they be killed. Natasha Brown, 27, seeking justice, buries her cousin, murdered by law enforcement. In doing so, ‘Tasha ignites a prophecy long buried, the criminalization of Brown people. But is this prophecy reversible? ‘TASHA was inspired by Sophocles’ ANTIGONE.


Playwright’s Note: ‘TASHA was written while I was facilitating a Devised Theatre class. The class aimed to magnify the voices of young women of color, murdered by the police – racial violence perpetrated against the female Black body is seldom told. A prototype of TASHA was first performed for and by Black and Latina students. I strongly urge that any future production of ‘TASHA evolve from a performance lab among theatre students. The process should amplify Greek tragedy through the inclusion of non-traditional voices. The lab goal should be to empower and inspire young artists of color to address race, gender, and the criminalization of Black people.


-WARNING-


Following is a statement by Sandra L. Shullman, Ph.D., president of the American Psychological Association, regarding the mental health consequences of recent high-profile violent events targeting African Americans:


“We are living in a racism pandemic, which is taking a heavy psychological toll on our African American citizens. The health consequences are dire. Racism is associated with a host of psychological consequences, including depression, anxiety, and other serious, sometimes debilitating conditions, including post-traumatic stress disorder and substance use disorders. Moreover, the stress caused by racism can contribute to the development of cardiovascular and other physical diseases. The American Psychological Association urges those who are experiencing trauma in the aftermath of these tragedies to practice self-care. Connect with family, friends, and other community support people, talk about your feelings and limit your exposure and that of your children to news media and viral videos. Seek professional help if you need it.”

Brooklyn's Bridge: A New Musical (Updated)

Event Date(s) / Time: Sunday, July 11, 2021 3:00 PM - 4:30 PM
Details:

Logo of Department of Theatre and Dance's Virtual Festival Spring 2021


Brooklyn’s Bridge is inspired by the extraordinary life of Emily Roebling, wife of Brooklyn Bridge Chief Engineer Washington Roebling. While working in the caissons under the east river, Washington had a debilitating attack of “the bends” and became bedridden. For the next eleven years, only Emily was seen on the worksite, delivering plans, handling both engineering and political issues. The New York Times recently revised their obituary acknowledging that, SHE built the bridge. And as the Brooklyn Bridge grows stronger, foundations to towers, cables to roadway…so does their love for one another, as Emily navigates the uncharted waters; a Victorian woman in a man’s world.

Logo of Department of Theatre and Dance's Virtual Festival Spring 2021


Just as timely and provocative as when it debuted in the early ‘80s, Top Girls highlight the sacrifices made by women in their quest for success and what happens to those left behind. With her characteristically bold theatricality, Caryl Churchill examines women in the workplace in Maggie Thatcher’s Britain who choose to take on the worst traits of men. At the heart of her emotionally blistering and sharply witty play, two sisters, one an upwardly mobile businesswoman and the other passionately committed to her working-class roots, battle over personal and deeply held political views in a confrontation that will forever change their lives.

The sinking of the Titanic in the early hours of April 15, 1912, remains the quintessential disaster of the twentieth century. A total of 1,517 souls – men, women, and children lost their lives (only 711 survived). The fact that the finest, largest, strongest ship in the world called, in fact, the “unsinkable” ship-should have been lost during its maiden voyage is so incredible that, had it not actually happened, no author would have dared to contrive it.


 


An epic, sweeping musical drama, TITANIC examines the causes, the conditions, and the characters involved in the ever-fascinating drama of the RSS Titanic. This is the factual story of that ship-of her officer, screw and passengers, to be sure but she will not, as has happened so many times before, serve as merely the background against which fictional, melodramatic narratives are recounted. The central character pf our TITANIC is the Titanic herself.


 


Winner of five Tony Awards including Best Score, Best Book, and Best The musical, this is the factual story of the fascinating and infamous “unsinkable” ship and. most importantly, of her passengers and crew. With a soaring score and filled with disarming with, this musical feature a wide array of characters from various classes and backgrounds unexpectedly sharing their aspirations and facing life’s ultimate questions together.

Event Date(s) / Time: Sunday, June 20, 2021 3:00 PM - 4:30 PM
Details:

Logo of Department of Theatre and Dance's Virtual Festival Spring 2021


Brooklyn’s Bridge is inspired by the extraordinary life of Emily Roebling, wife of Brooklyn Bridge Chief Engineer Washington Roebling. While working in the caissons under the east river, Washington had a debilitating attack of “the bends” and became bedridden. For the next eleven years, only Emily was seen on the worksite, delivering plans, handling both engineering and political issues. The New York Times recently revised their obituary acknowledging that, SHE built the bridge. And as the Brooklyn Bridge grows stronger, foundations to towers, cables to roadway…so does their love for one another, as Emily navigates the uncharted waters; a Victorian woman in a man’s world.

'TASHA, a protest play
6/2/2021

Event Date(s) / Time: Sunday, June 20, 2021 3:00 PM - 4:30 PM
Details:

Logo of Department of Theatre and Dance's Virtual Festival Spring 2021


‘TASHA is set in a modern republic. White Nationalists are occupying the government. Black communities are under martial law. Newly elected President Waters rules that from henceforth all who defy the police are criminals and will remain unburied should they be killed. Natasha Brown, 27, seeking justice, buries her cousin, murdered by law enforcement. In doing so, ‘Tasha ignites a prophecy long buried, the criminalization of Brown people. But is this prophecy reversible? ‘TASHA was inspired by Sophocles’ ANTIGONE.


Playwright’s Note: ‘TASHA was written while I was facilitating a Devised Theatre class. The class aimed to magnify the voices of young women of color, murdered by the police – racial violence perpetrated against the female Black body is seldom told. A prototype of TASHA was first performed for and by Black and Latina students. I strongly urge that any future production of ‘TASHA evolve from a performance lab among theatre students. The process should amplify Greek tragedy through the inclusion of non-traditional voices. The lab goal should be to empower and inspire young artists of color to address race, gender, and the criminalization of Black people.


-WARNING-


Following is a statement by Sandra L. Shullman, Ph.D., president of the American Psychological Association, regarding the mental health consequences of recent high-profile violent events targeting African Americans:


“We are living in a racism pandemic, which is taking a heavy psychological toll on our African American citizens. The health consequences are dire. Racism is associated with a host of psychological consequences, including depression, anxiety, and other serious, sometimes debilitating conditions, including post-traumatic stress disorder and substance use disorders. Moreover, the stress caused by racism can contribute to the development of cardiovascular and other physical diseases. The American Psychological Association urges those who are experiencing trauma in the aftermath of these tragedies to practice self-care. Connect with family, friends, and other community support people, talk about your feelings and limit your exposure and that of your children to news media and viral videos. Seek professional help if you need it.”

A Philosophy Talk - "You're Cancelled! Hard Times for Public Figures in a Landscape of Shifting Norms”
5/17/2021

Event Date(s) / Time: Thursday, May 27, 2021 5:30 PM - 6:30 PM
Details:

Cancel culture


Simone Gubler (University of Nevada, Reno)


Description: This talk is an apologetic for what many would take to be unsavory features of our present political discourse and practice. In it, I do two things. First, I establish that we, the public, may justifiably impose asymmetric and highly demanding normative standards on public figures – even in light of plausible charges of unfairness and hypocrisy. Second, I argue that where those standards are breached, we may be justified in cancelling public figures – in engaging in the public expression of outrage with the goal of the public figure’s removal from their position as a public figure. In making my case, I offer an ameliorative account of cancel culture. Addressed as a response to norm violations by public figures, I argue that cancelling has a legitimate, even admirable, social function in a democratic context. It is a function, moreover, that need not connote blame or punition – it need not be understood as a penalty, and need not be scrutinized in moral terms. There is no right to public status – public figures are there at the gift and on the terms of the public, which is equally empowered to instate and remove them.

Cali Sinfonia


Cali Sinfonia presents Debussy's Première Rhapsodie, for clarinet and orchestra with guest soloist Anthony McGill, and Mahler's Symphony 4 with soprano Evita Teterovska, both in chamber orchestra arrangements.


Clarinetist Anthony McGill is one of classical music’s most recognizable and brilliantly multifaceted figures. He serves as the principal clarinet of the New York Philharmonic, that orchestra’s first African-American principal player. Hailed for his “trademark brilliance, penetrating sound and rich character” (The New York Times), as well as for his “exquisite combination of technical refinement and expressive radiance” (The Baltimore Sun), McGill also serves as an ardent advocate for helping music education reach underserved communities. McGill was honored to take part in the inauguration of President Obama, premiering a piece by John Williams alongside violinist Itzhak Perlman, cellist Yo-Yo Ma, and pianist Gabriela Montero.


Evita Teterovska, is a Latvian soprano from a small, quaint European town Alūksne, Latvia. Currently, she is participating in an Opera Artist Diploma program on full tuition scholarship, at the John J. Cali School of Music, Montclair State University just outside New York City. Ms. Teterovska earned her Master's degree in Opera Singing from the Jāzeps Vītols Latvian Music Academy. She has worked with many acclaimed opera professionals including Grace Bumbry (opera singer) in Turkey; Jeffrey Goldberg (Assistant Conductor, Metropolitan Opera); Roger Malouf (Assistant Conductor, Metropolitan Opera); Joan Dorneman (Assistant Conductor, Metropolitan Opera); Deb Birnbaum (vocal professor, Lindeman Young Artist Program, Metropolitan Opera); Dan Sanders (Metropolitan Opera Pianist) and other professional artists and professors in New York City. She has participated in masterclasses in Luxembourg (Nei Stemmen competition, scholarship holder), and London Masterclasses (scholarship holder, Manchester, UK). Ms. Teterovska is a scholar of the Olgarhythm Foundation (London, UK). Her European debut was in the role of Adina (L’elisir d’amore, Donizetti) in Teatro Fenarolo di Lanciano (Italy), with conductor Gioachino Scomegna (Italy). She performed for 3 years as a professional chorister at the Latvian National Opera and Ballett.

Philosophy for Lunch - “Lesbian Lives in Simone De Beauvoir”
5/7/2021

Event Date(s) / Time: Thursday, May 13, 2021 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM
Details:

In The Second Sex, the philosopher Simone de Beauvoir notes that the fate of women has been mainly determined by their anatomy; young girls are reared to find husbands and have children with them. However, she also identifies a few alternatives: homosexuality is one option. Beauvoir argues that, for a woman, homosexuality, “is one attempt among others to reconcile her autonomy with the passivity of her flesh.” In this week’s P4L, we will explore Beauvoir's figure of the lesbian, and reflect on the benefits as well as the limits of her account.

5/4/2021

Event Date(s) / Time: Tuesday, May 4, 2021 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
Details:






In her latest novel, The Pleasure of Killing A Mother, Montclair State University Professor Marta López Luaces dares to dive into the depths of one of the many dark moments that our recent past keeps hiding among its folds. 


 

Near the end of Francoism, a woman is confined in a sinister psychiatric hospital after having been accused of killing her mother. Through her eyes and those of the women she shares her confinement with—many of them admitted by their own families for little more than not fitting in with the feminine standard of the time.

 

Join us in a conversation with the author to discuss the creative process and reception behind a literary work that Random House describes as a "unique, brave, feminist novel...based on real events.” This program is in Spanish with English subtitles.

Philosophy for Lunch - “Language and Reality”
4/29/2021

Event Date(s) / Time: Thursday, May 6, 2021 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM
Details:

Are some ways of describing reality better than others? For instance, ordinary English recognizes a distinction between dogs and cats––we have different words for each sort of thing. But consider an imaginary language: Shmenglish. Shmenglish lacks the words ‘dog’ and ‘cat’ and, instead, has a single term ‘dog-cat’ that refers to anything that is either a dog or a cat. And given how the term is used in this language, Shmenglish speakers can say something true when they point to a golden retriever and exclaim, "He's a good dog-cat." Are Schmenglish speakers missing out on some feature of reality? Is English a better means of describing the world than Schmenglish? And how could we decide? In this P4L, we’ll focus on this last question and explore whether the notion of ontological structure might help us answer it.

Sustainability Seminar Series; Radley Horton, Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory
4/29/2021

Event Date(s) / Time: Monday, May 3, 2021 3:45 PM - 5:00 PM
Details:

Radley Horton, Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, presents this week's seminar. Watch the presentation on Zoom.


About Dr. Horton


Radley Horton is a Research Professor at Columbia University’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory. His research focuses on climate extremes, tail risks, climate impacts, and adaptation. Radley was a Convening Lead Author for the Third National Climate Assessment, and served on the Sea Level Rise and Climate Scenarios Task Forces for the Fourth National Climate Assessment. He is the Lead Principal Investigator for the NOAA-Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessments-funded Consortium for Climate Risk in the Urban Northeast. Radley also teaches in Columbia University’s Sustainable Development department. Radley is a leading climate science communicator, appearing regularly on television, radio, and in print.


About the Seminar


There is a growing realization among scientists and decision makers that extreme events should not be considered in isolation. Compound events of three types will be described: 1) multivariate (e.g. heat plus humidity), 2) sequential (e.g. a heat wave after a tropical cyclone), and 3) concurrent (e.g. simultaneous temperature extremes in multiple regions). Research results will be presented for these compound extremes. 


More research is needed on correlations and physical mechanisms that can link seemingly independent extreme events. This research is especially urgent now, since climate change may shift the correlation structures of extreme events, and because compound extreme events can lead to outsized non-linear impacts, in part because of correlations that extend beyond climate variables into impacts and policy responses (e.g. simultaneous risk of heat waves, poor air quality, and power failures.


Stakeholder driven approaches to identifying key impacts, and ultimately adapting to them, will also be discussed.

Event Date(s) / Time: Thursday, April 29, 2021 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM
Details:

Whether you believe that gender is binary or a spectrum, gender seems inescapable. It is a part of our personal identity and how we understand our relation to others and the world. However, what gender is, and where it comes from, is still debated. In this week’s P4L, we will examine the philosopher Judith Butler’s controversial ideas regarding gender as a performance, and we will consider its potential implications on society and feminist debate.

Sustainability Seminar Series; Noah Planavsky, Yale University
4/22/2021

Event Date(s) / Time: Monday, April 26, 2021 3:45 PM - 5:00 PM
Details:

Noah Planavsky, Yale University, presents this week's seminar. Join us for the presentation on Zoom.


About Dr. Planavsky


Noah Planavsky is an Associate Professor in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences. He joined the faculty in 2012 after doing graduate work at University of California, Riverside.  He is an isotope geochemist that works on environmental change in Earth’s past, present, and future.  His work combines field studies, analytical chemistry, and geochemical modeling. He has worked extensively on atmospheric evolution—with a particular focus on changes in oxygen and carbon dioxide concentrations. Current projects focus on changes in ocean oxygen levels and on the potential for carbon capture through enhanced mineral weathering in marine and terrestrial environments. 


About the Seminar


Carbon capture will be a necessary climate mitigation tool, if global warming is to stay below 2˚C. Basalt addition to agricultural lands and marine settings could be a low-risk, logistically practical capture strategy. The idea behind this carbon dioxide removal strategy is simple—carbon capture and climate mitigation through mineral weathering involves enhancing the rate of a process that the Earth does naturally. I will review the potential for agricultural and marine carbon capture through the addition of milled basalt and how we can use geochemical, geophysical, and oceanographic models to develop a quantitative road map for significantly increasing the efficiency of these processes.

Currently, Chief Mann is working on co-creating the United Lunaapeewak, a project broadly focused on issues of cultural restoration and the construction of a permanent educational center for the greater citizens of New Jersey and Southern New York. He is also working on co-creating an organic farm, known as the Munsee Three Sisters Medicinal Garden. The prayer behind this is to create local jobs and, more importantly, to bring back food sovereignty to his Clan. As an advocate for cultural and environmental issues, he continues to this day to offer up prayers for humanity and for our natural environment.

Philosophy for Lunch - “Philosophy and Science: Is Science Objective and Impartial?”
4/16/2021

Event Date(s) / Time: Thursday, April 22, 2021 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM
Details:

In this P4L, we'll be reading selections from a few philosophers including Helen Longino and Sharon Crasnow about the outside-the-ivory-tower influences on scientific research, and whether science has sufficient tools to resist them. Scientists are humans, after all, and have our own biases, perspectives and interests: do those show up in the science we produce? Can science compensate for those, to give us objective, value-neutral truth? (Does it, in fact?)

Sustainability Seminar Series; Erika Lentz, USGS
4/15/2021

Event Date(s) / Time: Monday, April 19, 2021 3:45 PM - 5:00 PM
Details:

Erika E. Lentz, U.S. Geological Survey, Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center, presents this week's seminar. Watch the presentation on Zoom.


About Erika


Erika Lentz is a Research Geologist with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) stationed at the Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center. Her research focuses on coastal change and the processes that drive it over a range of spatial (barrier island to regional) and temporal (storms to sea-level rise) scales in both natural and built environments. She is also interested in the meaningful communication of scientific information to support decision-making and is part of the leadership team guiding USGS Coastal Change Hazards programmatic focus.


About the Seminar


Coastal hazards affect both human and natural systems in ways that can be sudden, dramatic, and/or irreversible. Flooding, erosion, and landscape change, driven by storms, sea-level rise, and human disturbances present a variety of challenges for those living and working on the coast. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) delivers a variety of products and tools that support the mitigation of coastal hazards, including protecting life and property. Our Coastal Change Hazards (CCH) programmatic focus was born from a goal to better serve communities’ needs using the best science available to support effective coastal management and inform decision making from local to national scales. The CCH focus integrates stakeholder engagement, public communication, and technical needs with traditional research expertise and external collaborators to continuously align federal priorities with science and products most beneficial, relevant and useful to our coastal communities. This presentation will feature several examples of co-developed research and engagement efforts that are part of CCH.

An Ancient Phonetic Zoo: The Origins of Hieroglyphic Writing
4/12/2021

Event Date(s) / Time: Tuesday, April 20, 2021 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Details:

In May 2017, the Elkab Desert Survey Project (of Yale University and the Royal Museums of Art and History, Brussels) discovered the earliest monumental hieroglyphic inscription at the site of El Khawy, just north of the ancient city of Elkab.  High on a cliff face along an ancient road, this ancient “billboard” is an undeniable expression of power by an early Upper Egyptian ruler, quite possibly King Scorpion, whose tomb at Abydos (ca. 3250 BCE) contained the other earliest datable proto-hieroglyphic texts.  In combination with Predynastic rock art of the fourth millennium BCE in the Eastern and Western deserts of Egypt and Nubia (including several important tableaux also discovered by the Elkab Desert Survey Project), the El Khawy site offers an unparalleled glimpse into the “phonetic zoo” of hieroglyphic writing—the process by which the symbolic world of Predynastic animal imagery became the nascent script of pharaonic Egypt.


 


All are invited.  Note midday time.  Further information: rennert@montclair.edu

Philosophy for Lunch - "In Defense of Liberty & Human Dignity"
4/8/2021

Event Date(s) / Time: Thursday, April 15, 2021 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM
Details:

At a time when democracies across the world are increasingly assailed, one should rightly fear for the future of humanity’s inherent liberties. Economic instability, deep-rooted prejudices, & lack of faith in the status quo are amongst the most prominent drivers of political extremism in any society. This extremism, no matter its ideological coating, has already plunged the globe into bloody wars and established regimes where the human spirit is crushed beneath an oppressive and murderous jackboot. Hannah Arendt, a survivor of the same extremism which dominated much of the world throughout the 20th century, details how human beings can ultimately be the constructors of the very systems which enslave as well as dehumanize not only others, but themselves as well. In this P4L, we shall learn from Arendt's writings, not only about the dangers that forecast the rise of extremism, yet just as well what it implies for the future of democracy in our increasingly divisive yet interconnected societies. *Special Guest: Matthew Murcia

She is co-founder of the critically acclaimed urban art pop duo, Flutronix, and comfortably navigates everything from classical to indie-rock, all while advocating for social change and cultural awareness.

Philosophy for Lunch - “Seeing Through the Veil of Perception”
4/1/2021

Event Date(s) / Time: Thursday, April 8, 2021 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM
Details:

Indirect realists, as the name suggests, claim that we do not perceive the physical world directly. Instead, we perceive it only by means of perceiving mental proxies or mental representations. This view has a distinguished history, and it still exists in various corners of philosophy and the sciences. Though many disagree with it, virtually all regard it as coherent––it does not contain any internal contradiction. A.D. Smith disagrees. He argues that indirect realists cannot coherently claim that there is a physical world beyond the senses. In this P4L, we’re going to explore Smith’s argument and try to figure out whether indirect realism is actually incoherent.

The Boundless Seas of Imagination
3/29/2021

Event Date(s) / Time: Monday, April 5, 2021 9:45 AM - 11:00 AM
Details:
The Asian Languages Programs of the Department of World Languages and Cultures are pleased to invite you to our next virtual Korea lecture "The Boundless Seas of Imagination" on April 5 (M).  

 

What would you include if you are to draw a world map? How did maps contribute to the growth and distribution of knowledge and ideas? 

 


Abstract of the talk:

During the late Chosŏn (17th-19th centuries), the Korean people’s appreciation of new materials and recognition of different cultures expanded rapidly. Koreans composed poetry and prose that explored Chinese and other foreign and remote areas, and broadly circulated maps that nourished their growing interest in new people, places, and things. This talk examines the use and popularity of cartography, particularly Ch’ŏnhado (Cosmography), and how it enriched the
Korean way of life. Using a wealth of information uncovered in recent decades, I explore the many ways in which maps contributed to the growth and distribution of knowledge and ideas, by illustrating both the geographical imagination and the cosmopolitan desire of late Chosŏn Koreans. World maps and related literary representations were not simple reflections of newfound cartographic information and knowledge. They were intricate revelations of the imaginative and abstruse worlds that lived in the Korean mind, speaking to their silenced but soaring demand to nourish their cultural and literary pride and creativity.

 


Sponsored by the Department of World Languages and Cultures and Korean Education Center of New York.

Philosophy for Lunch - "Happiness in a Divided Self"
3/25/2021

Event Date(s) / Time: Thursday, April 1, 2021 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM
Details:

Plato's Republic (380 B.C.E.) includes claims about happiness that rest on a divided view of the self. According to Plato, the self has three parts. Rather than characterize happiness as some kind of unification of the self’s parts, Plato’s account of happiness (and justice!) is hierarchical, one part rules over the others. This view is so deep in our culture that it will probably resonate with some of your intuitions about how you should live——and these intuitions may or may not lead to happiness. Discovering what may be behind some of your intuitions is one benefit of learning about Plato’s view. Another benefit is that this process may give us hints about what an alternative view of happiness would look like.

Sustainability Seminar Series: Coastal Dune Morphodynamics: Insights Across Time and Space Scales
3/24/2021

Event Date(s) / Time: Monday, March 29, 2021 3:45 PM - 5:00 PM
Details:

Nick Cohn, US Army Engineer Research and Development Center, presents this week's seminar. Join us for the presentation on Zoom.


About Dr. Cohn


Nick Cohn completed a B.S. in Earth Sciences from Boston University in 2010 and a PhD in Geology from Oregon State University in 2018. Nick is currently a Research Oceanographer at the US Army Engineer Research and Development Centers’ (ERDC) Field Research Facility on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. He runs a research program involving field data collection and numerical model development focused on nearshore-beach-dune morphodynamics.


About the Seminar


Wind-blown (aeolian) sediment transport is an important modifier of landscape change in coastal environments. Gradients in the transport field contributes to the building of coastal foredunes, which are topographically high features that are increasingly relied on to protect low-lying infrastructure from storm-induced flooding hazards along sandy coastlines. While skill in predicting wave-induced dune erosion during storms is generally improving, there are currently limited reliable quantitative tools for predicting the recovery and subsequent growth of dunes by aeolian processes in coastal systems. As part of improving fundamental understanding of the mechanisms and time/space scales of coastal foredune growth, in this talk a number of field data collection efforts utilizing new remote sensing techniques using high resolution lidars will be presented that provide novel insights on (1) micro-scale wind-blown transport processes and (2) meso-scale morphodynamic feedbacks on dunes.

This is What Democracy Looks Like? Transgenerational Transmissions, Chosen Trauma and Entitlement Ideologies in the Context of World Diplomacy (Updated)
3/19/2021

Event Date(s) / Time: Thursday, March 25, 2021 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Details:

The presentation by psychiatrist Dr. Vamik Volkan will start with the story of a very rich man who would machinegun a herd of deer from a helicopter when facing an anxiety-provoking event. How the task of becoming an animal killer was transmitted to him during his childhood from a stepfather will be illustrated. The presentation will focus on large groups, thousands or millions of people who share the same ethnic, national, religious, or ideological identity and sentiments. Each large group has its own language, nursery rhymes, history and cultural symbols. “Chosen trauma” as a large-group identity marker will be described. This term refers to the shared mental image of an event in a large group’s history in which the group suffered a catastrophic loss, humiliation, and helplessness at the hands of enemies or opponents. The chosen trauma is transmitted from one generation to the next one throughout many decades even centuries. Some political and social leaders may inflame a chosen trauma in order to fuel an entitlement ideology; a shared sense of entitlement to recover what was lost in reality and fantasy during the ancestors’ collective trauma and during other shared traumas. Such inflammations create problems in world diplomacy as well as in peaceful co-existence between divided sections within the same country.


Vamık D. Volkan, M.D., DFLAPA, FACPsa, is a Turkish Cypriot psychiatrist, internationally known for his 40 years of work bringing together conflictual groups for dialogue and mutual understanding. Among his many other honors, he is the president emeritus of the International Dialogue Initiative, among many other honors.

Philosophy for Lunch - "Painting Perception: Merleau-Ponty on Cézanne"
3/18/2021

Event Date(s) / Time: Thursday, March 25, 2021 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM
Details:

French phenomenologist Maurice Merleau-Ponty credits the painter Paul Cézanne with having discovered the truth of human perception——about how the world appears to us. According to Merleau-Ponty, Cézanne accomplishes this through his original use of color. In this week's P4L, we will read passages from the essay, "Cézanne's Doubt," and attempt to see just what Merleau-Ponty saw illuminated in the French Impressionist's paintings.

Sustainability Seminar Series: Elemental hyper-accumulation in mushrooms with a focus on arsenic
3/18/2021

Event Date(s) / Time: Monday, March 22, 2021 3:45 PM - 5:00 PM
Details:

Walter Gössler, University of Graz, presents this week's seminar. Watch the seminar on Zoom.


About Dr. Göessler


My research focuses on the development and improvement of analytical methods with emphasis on inorganic analysis. The developed methods answer questions related to human health and our environment. Speciation analysis of nonmetals with element-selective detection (ICPMS/MS) and the biotransformation of arsenic compounds play a central role in my research.


Current projects are focused on questions related to arsenic and ultrafine particles in our air.


About the Seminar


Mushrooms play an important role in the biogeochemical cycling of trace elements. They do neither belong to plants nor to animals but form their own kingdom. Some mushrooms live in symbiosis with plants or as parasites on other living organisms. Mushrooms are abundant worldwide. Although omnipresent, they only become noticeable when fruiting bodies are produced. Mushrooms are becoming a more important part of our diet and are used in various aspects of our life. They are used for antibiotics production, in the food industry (wine, cheese...) but also as biological pesticides. New applications cover plastics degradation and use as a leather replacement.


Some mushrooms can grow very fast and are able to (hyper)accumulate elements from the surrounding soil. This presentation will cover elemental accumulation by mushrooms with a focus on the unique arsenic speciation in mushrooms.

This is What Democracy Looks Like?
3/16/2021

Event Date(s) / Time: Thursday, March 25, 2021 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Details:

The presentation by psychiatrist Dr. Vamik Volkan will start with the story of a very rich man who would machinegun a herd of deer from a helicopter when facing an anxiety-provoking event. How the task of becoming an animal killer was transmitted to him during his childhood from a stepfather will be illustrated. The presentation will focus on large groups, thousands or millions of people who share the same ethnic, national, religious, or ideological identity and sentiments. Each large group has its own language, nursery rhymes, history and cultural symbols. “Chosen trauma” as a large-group identity marker will be described. This term refers to the shared mental image of an event in a large group’s history in which the group suffered a catastrophic loss, humiliation, and helplessness at the hands of enemies or opponents. The chosen trauma is transmitted from one generation to the next one throughout many decades even centuries. Some political and social leaders may inflame a chosen trauma in order to fuel an entitlement ideology; a shared sense of entitlement to recover what was lost in reality and fantasy during the ancestors’ collective trauma and during other shared traumas. Such inflammations create problems in world diplomacy as well as in peaceful co-existence between divided sections within the same country.


Vamık D. Volkan, M.D., DFLAPA, FACPsa, is a Turkish Cypriot psychiatrist, internationally known for his 40 years of work bringing together conflictual groups for dialogue and mutual understanding. Among his many other honors, he is the president emeritus of the International Dialogue Initiative, among many other honors.

Philosophy for Lunch - “Waking Up the Sheeple: Conspiracy Thinking”
3/11/2021

Event Date(s) / Time: Thursday, March 18, 2021 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM
Details:

Conspiracy theories are—unfortunately!—nothing new. But, they do seem to be newly energized by the changing landscape of social media communication, entering the mainstream dialogue of democracy in unique ways. For philosophers, one significant aspect of conspiracy theorizing is that "both sides" accuse the other of fairly important lapses or errors in acquiring belief: the Conspiracists are paranoid cherry-pickers; the Sheeple are too trusting of authorities with unknown motives. It would be very handy to have some way to determine not just who is correct in these disputes, but who is thinking most responsibly and carefully about it. Are there typical, characteristic failures in thinking that we can diagnose in conspiracy theorizing? Do established and accepted instances of conspiracies show us that, instead, the mainstream needs to change its ways of thinking? Join us as we "do our own research”!
