Public Health Grand Rounds: Health through Peace-Building http://www.rochester.edu/diversity/eventscalendar?event&id=1131139 http://www.rochester.edu/diversity/eventscalendar?event&id=1131139 Helen Wood Hall Auditorium School of Nursing
Friday, March 3, 2017
12:00 PM

Norbert Goldfield, 3M Health Information Systems and founder of Healing Across the Divides, will give a talk on "Health through Peace-building Challenges and Opportunities for Israelis and Palestinians." 

In light of the current election, current events around the world make peace-building more challenging than it has ever been. Yet many health professionals continue to engage in activities that bridge their Hippocratic Oath with community/country-wide and even regional activities that attempt to resolve conflicts. In this dialogue with colleagues and students, I will summarize the efforts and highlight the challenges of one organization, Healing Across the Divides, in its efforts to improve the health of marginalized populations and sow seeds of peace in an intractable peace building challenge, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. 

The talk is jointly sponsored by the Department of Public Health Sciences and the Center for Community Health. ASL interpreters or other accommodations are available upon request.

Contact Jennifer VanRy @ Jennifer_vanry@urmc.rochester.edu or  224-2061 with requests and/or questions.

The Indian textbooks of politics (the Arthashastra) and pleasure (the Kamasutra), composed in around 200-300 CE, pretend to endorse the ethical, social, and religious laws (dharma) but in fact blatantly violate them. How did they get away with it?

"How Did China Get So Big?: Redefining the Realm and its Subjects Circa 1750-1900" Kenneth Pomeranz, University of Chicago, Memer of the Stevanovich Institute on the Formation of Knowledge Professor of Modern Chinese History

This lecture begins with a description of the intellectual changes of the period 1750-1900 but focuses primarily on how they turned into policies on the group and how the implications of these shifts differed sharply between the northwestern (Xijniang) and southwestern (Yunnan and, to a lesser extent, Tibet) frontiers.

This lecture is a part of the history department's Moore Lecture Series, an annual series that has been funded by a gift from University alumnus Verne Moore, Class of 1950, since 1996.

Susan B. Anthony Institute International Graduate Conference http://www.rochester.edu/diversity/eventscalendar?event&id=1113666 http://www.rochester.edu/diversity/eventscalendar?event&id=1113666 River Campus

The 24th Annual Susan B. Anthony Institute for Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies International Graduate Conference featuring Susan B. Anthony Keynote peformance lecture with Tavia Nyong'o, professor of African American Studies, American Studies, and Theater Studies at Yale University. 

Graduate students are invited from all disciplines in the humanities, social sciences, sciences, and the arts to submit research on questions related to the conference theme and especially in response to the keynote speaker’s research. In addition to scholarly papers, we encourage creative interpretations of this year’s theme. Performances, collaborative presentations, and visual and sound works will also be welcomed.

What is voice and in what ways does it shape our identity? How do we understand the voice in various disciplines? Often the voice is considered in terms of its complex relationship to presence and absence, as a marker of identity in social space, and as a play between a material body and its discursive function. Understanding the capacity of the voice to call bodies to action while also functioning as a limit, horizon, and/or border, this conference invites discussions on the nature and the role of voice in relation to issues of gender, sexuality, race, disability, and more. Read more on Facebook

 Discussions might include, but are not limited to:


- Narration of identity (oral accounts, autobiography, self-inscription, testimony)

- The voice being “lost” by interpretation or translation

- Giving power and agency to the voiceless

- Individual vs. communal voice(s)

- Materiality and non-signifying registers of the voice

- Voice and visual media

- Voice in queer, gender, and/or critical race theory

- Noise vs. silence

- The breakdown of the voice (entropy, disintegration, chaos)

- Disrupting, distancing, escaping the voice

- Decolonizing the voice/voice and violence

- The artificial, hybrid, or cyborg voice

- Media archaeology and the voice

- The body as a threshold for the voice; the voice as the threshold of the body

- Listening and reception theory
