Workshop: Approaching All Students as Language Learners

Kim Warren, Departments of History and Women, Gender & Sexuality Studies, and Meagan Patterson, CTE/Educational Psychology, will lead a discussion about approaching the classroom as if all of our students were language learners. Not only do instructors need to provide intellectual skills that are relevant to our specific disciplines, but we need to teach them the vocabulary, grammar, and syntax that drive the language of what we teach. How would our pedagogical approaches change if we scaffolded our teaching with the assumption that students were learning both skills and language?

In Philosophy Within Its Proper Bounds, Edouard Machery argues that resolving many traditional and contemporary philosophical issues is beyond our epistemic reach and that philosophy should re-orient itself toward more humble, but ultimately more important intellectual endeavors. The book assesses the main philosophical method for acquiring the knowledge that the resolution of these traditional and contemporary philosophical issues turns on: the use of thought experiments in philosophy.

KINO Film Series: "The Outskirts" (dir. Lutsik, 1998, Russia)

CREES presents the third film in the KINO Legacies of Stalinism Film Series: "The Outskirts" also known by the transliterated Russian title Okraina), directed by Petr Lutsik (1998, Russia, 95 minutes). About the movie: "Named after the 1933 Boris Barnet classic (of which it's the rueful shadow remake), Lutsik's sparky debut is a cruel, comic fable about grim peasant vigilantes going on a killing spree to reclaim their land rights. Shot deadpan in glacial monochrome, it has an earnest absurdity fully worthy of Monty Python: grizzled kulaks forming human igloos to survive the cold during overnight stops, a neo-capitalist gangster executive whose all white office has shelves stacked to the ceiling with oil samples from the fields he has pillaged. As the violence escalates, so does the underlying vehemence, underscored by the use of music recycled from Stalinist propaganda warhorses of the 1930s. Highly original, and probably as accurate an account of current social chaos in Russia as any other."… Organization: RUSSIAN, EAST EUROPEAN & EURASIAN STUDIE. Event Location: 318 Bailey Hall.

As low income lesbians of color, these women hold intersecting identities that make them especially vulnerable to incarceration.

Brownbag Lecture Series: Elizabeth Wenger (Eisenhower Library)

Dr. Elizabeth Wenger (Eisenhower Presidential Library and Friends University) will deliver a lecture titled "Satiric Rogues: Satire between Protest and Team Building in Stalinist Poland." Abstract: In the forties and fifties, the Polish censor’s office published a bulletin where the more enthusiastic censors sent not only questions and comments, but also satires, skits, poetry, and memoirs.

Tea & Talk - Alexander Diener

Axial Development in Mongolia: Intended and Unintended Effects of New Roads, Axial development in Mongolia provides a unique opportunity to consider the intended and unintended effects of introducing paved roads into regions where none exist. This research project elucidates the manner in which new mobile technologies arrange and rearrange the mundane spaces of everyday life in the Mongolian countryside. A review of relevant theoretical literature sets up an outline of Mongolia as a context for axial development. This is followed by analysis of data from a 125-person survey, 128 interviews, and participant observation in sites proximate to and distant from new paved roads. In short, this study represents an in process consideration of infrastructure development that will radically alter the Mongolian economy, environment, and socio-political landscape.

Lecture Title:  The Humanist as Image Detective: Spanish Civil War Photography from Metonymy to Metaphor & Back Again, Abstract: The twentieth century doesn’t properly start until artists take hold of their scissors and glue. It’s not by chance that the cubists were so fond of collages or that Buñuel and Eisenstein reinvented cinema in the cutting room. Is there anything more modern than the cut-and-paste? Shattering the world and reassembling it: it’s what the modern artist does. But what if the world comes shattered? Spain’s war of 1936-39 featured mass bombing campaigns that left thousands of victims and turned urban landscapes into surrealist montages. Photographers and poster artists were scandalized and shocked—but also, inevitably, inspired and intrigued. The war, which broke out right when new… Organization: SPANISH & PORTUGUESE DEPARTMENT.
