In Plain Sight

This museum-wide exhibition engages artists whose work addresses narratives, communities, and histories that are typically hidden or invisible in our public space. The presenting artists approach the exhibition’s theme from a range of directions, varying across all media as well as aesthetic and conceptual contexts. Works encompass deliberately activist endeavors; the unpacking of individual histories excluded due to race, ethnicity, or class; explorations of coded language for protection, secrecy, or both; the illumination of invisible or covert systems of labor, exploitation, and capitalist control; and translation through surreal, oblique, or fantastical frameworks. Campus location: Henry Art Gallery and Allen Center for The Visual Arts (HAG). Event types: Exhibits. Twitter: #In_Plain_Sight. Wednesday, January 29, 2020. For more info visit henryart.org.

BLA Info Session

Landscape Architecture involves design thinking and practice in the making and sustaining of our built environments. It serves to engage the wants, needs, and aspirations of people and communities while systematically seeking to improve the functions and qualities of the natural world. It encompasses a broad spectrum of practices from design of streetscapes to restoration of habitats and ecosystems. Landscape architects are, in a sense, architects of the landscape–the landscape that encompasses both natural and social realms, urbanity and wilderness, land, water and air. They design not only for people and communities, but for plants and animals, to support social and natural processes, and to protect human and environmental assets.

Lecture: "A History of Computing and Automation," with special guest Kjeld Schmidt

Please join Human Centered Design & Engineering for a special event  with the Department's Winter 2020 Department's Distinguished Speaker. A History of Computing and Automation Kjeld Schmidt, Copenhagen Business School, Denmark, and University of Siegen, Germany, Abstract Automation is nothing new. Human kind learned, millennia ago, to exploit causal processes such as cooking meat and plants by controlled use of fire, the brewing of beer and wine and cheese by controlled fermentation, the making of ceramic vessels and metal tools by exposing minerals to high temperatures, etc. They were ‘automatic’ in as much as the underlying processes were naturally occurring processes; they would take place spontaneously, without human intervention. The key issue with these technologies then was to learn to control that the underlying natural processes were maintained within certain boundary conditions. Later, automatic processes of a rather different kind emerged; they are ‘artificial’ in that they do not occur… Campus location: Bill & Melinda Gates Center for Computer Science & Engineering (CSE2).

Nature & Health Talks: Designing for Health in the Informal Amphibious Community, Iquitos with Leann Andrews, ND, PhD & Coco Alarcón, PhD Student

Abstract:  Peru has significantly increased mining and oil extraction in the last decade, degrading Amazon Rainforest ecosystems and indigenous livelihoods, interrupting local to global climate regulation, and resulting in rapid jungle-to-city migration with ultimately 90,000+ people living in informal "amphibious" communities floating in the floodplain borders of the jungle city. These indigenous migrants struggle adapting from nature rich lifestyles to the harsh urban slums, manifesting in a multitude of physical, mental, social and environmental health issues. Leann Andrews and Coco Alarcón will discuss InterACTION Labs: Iquitos, a transdisciplinary action research program that fuses scientific, indigenous and professional knowledge to design landscape architecture interventions with an informal amphibious community in Iquitos, Peru. They will share preliminary human and ecological health impacts of the designs, and discuss implications to One Health, Planetary Health, diseases of poverty, climate change r… Campus location: Anderson Hall (AND).

Psychology Colloquium with Jennifer Forsyth, PhD

Jennifer Forsyth, PhD, Clinical Instructor, Department of Psychiatry & Biobehavioral Sciences, UCLA, Schizophrenia: Finding the Path from Genes to Complex Syndrome Schizophrenia is a complex syndrome associated with diverse clinical, cognitive, and neurobiological features that can vary substantially from one patient to the next. Identifying the core mechanisms underlying this syndrome and improving patient outcomes has been a major challenge. In this talk, Dr. Forsyth will present her work using a pharmacological probe in humans to examine one compelling etiologic model of schizophrenia, the NMDA receptor dysfunction model. She will then discuss her work using functional genomics to systematically examine which aspects of brain development are affected by genetic risk for schizophrenia and related disorders.

Paths to Korean Reunification

Since 1945, the Korean peninsula has been divided into South and North Korea. Many families have lived for several decades without knowing whether or not their children or parents or siblings are still alive in either North or South Korea.

By better understanding the current reunification progress, we can work together toward raising awareness across different communities. We invite you to come listen to our guest speaker, Julie Kang from NUAC and the Korean American Coalition and professor Wang Hwi Lee from the department of political science at Ajou University in Suwon, South Korea to talk about the current state of reunification.  Sponsored by the Korean Student Association.

We are not here primarily referring to the mountains of text produced and perused as part of everyday work (such as letters, emails, notes, reports, contracts), which naturally typically are at the center of practitioners’ attention, but to an assortment of inconspicuous and mundane semiotic artifacts, such as fault report forms, folders, binder labels, part routing schemes, kanban cards, identification codes, and so on that have been specially designed to facilitate the coordination and integration of cooperative work activities.

CEI Interdisciplinary Seminar: Carlos Silva, Georgia Tech

Exciton polarons in two-dimensional hybrid metal-halide perovskites While polarons --- charges bound to a lattice deformation induced by electron-phonon coupling --- are primary photoexcitations at room temperature in bulk metal-halide hybrid organic-inorganic perovskites (HOIP), excitons --- Coulomb-bound electron-hole pairs --- are the stable quasi-particles in their two-dimensional (2D) analogues. Here we address the fundamental question: are polaronic effects consequential for excitons in 2D-HIOPs? Based on our recent work, we argue that polaronic effects are manifested intrinsically in the exciton spectral structure, which is comprised of multiple non-degenerate resonances with constant inter-peak energy spacing. We highlight measurements of population and dephasing dynamics that point to the apparently deterministic role of polaronic effects in excitonic properties. We contend that an interplay of long-range and short-range exciton-lattice couplings give rise to exciton polarons, a character that fun… Campus location: NanoEngineering and Sciences Building (NAN).

Friends of the Libraries Annual Lecture with Shawn Wong

'No-No Boy': The Story of How a Novel Goes From 1,500 Copies Sold to 158,000 Copies In the early 1970s, Shawn Wong and group of young Asian American writers discovered the novel, "No-No Boy" by John Okada, in a used bookstore for fifty cents. Originally published in 1957, it had not sold out 15 years later. No one had read it and the author had died believing his novel was rejected and forgotten. Wong will share the rediscovery story of "No-No Boy" — how young Asian American writers urged a new audience to recognize the book’s importance and launched its journey from obscurity to canonical work in Asian American literature. Register Read coverage from the New York Times and the Seattle Times about the recent dispute surrounding the republication of "No-No Boy.". Campus location: Kane Hall (KNE). Campus room: Room 130.

Critical Issues Lecture – Barbara Bloom

The Critical Issues Lecture Series is free and open to the public. Registration is not required, but it does help us estimate attendance. REGISTER NOW Read about the entire lecture series on the registration website or at the link below. Since the 1970s, Barbara Bloom has utilized photography, installation, and book-making to arrange spaces in which themes can echo and ideas can unfold. Likening her approach to that of a novelist, she is less concerned with individual objects than with the relationships that she creates between them through arrangement, occlusion, reference, and apparent hierarchies of value. Born in Los Angeles in 1951, Bloom is affiliated with a group of artists referred to as The Pictures Generation. Her work has been celebrated around the world, including exhibitions at: The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; The Museum of Modern Art, New York; Museum Boijmans van Beuningen, Rotterdam; Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; the Venice Biennale;… Campus location: Henry Art Gallery and Allen Center for The Visual Arts (HAG).

Cannabis-Infused Dreams: Worker-Owner Relationships in an Emerging, Morally Contested Industry, Michele Cadigan

The Harry Bridges Center is excited to invite Michele Cadigan, Sociology, for a Labor Studies Workshare of their paper titled, “Cannabis-Infused Dreams: Worker-Owner Relationships in an Emerging, Morally Contested Industry."  Abstract: Economic sociologists have revealed that laborers can often work in ways that run counter-productive to the overall success of the company. Individuals work to transform their labor and market practices in ways that align with their own values and standards. However, to what extent do workers have control over market practices? And what role to employers play in this process? Drawing on 45 interviews with store owners and retail staff at 17 cannabis retail stores in Seattle and 107 hours of observation at three different pot shops, I find that workers play a central role in shaping the industry despite early efforts from employers to control how and what is bought and sold in their stores. Employers reported restructuring their organizations to allow workers a greater amount… Campus location: Smith Hall (SMI). Campus room: 306. Event types: Academics.

Thinking Historically in Sultanate Deccan: The Tārīkh-i Firishta - Emma Flatt

Thinking Historically in Sultanate Deccan: The Tārīkh-i Firishta Lecture by Emma Flatt (UNC-Chapel Hill) Recent work on the sixteenth century Deccan has emphasized the extent to which the past, particularly the built heritage of earlier rulers, constituted a useful resource for constructing the present. Focusing on one of the most well-known but under-analysed Persian historical chronicles, the Tārīkh-i Firishta, this paper will consider to what extent and in which ways this historian considered the past and historical writing to constitute a useful resource for the exigencies of the present. How did the contemporary political, religious and cultural complexities of Firishta’s own time affect his understanding of the past? Which events, individuals and places seemed to loom largest in historical memory? How did the norms of Persian historiographical writing constrain Indo-Persian writers like Firishta in their presentation of the past? How did he deal with the divergent dating systems, calendars,… Campus location: Denny Hall (DEN). Campus room: 211. Event types: Lectures/Seminars.

SOLD OUT - Cemetery Lichens Tour

Looking for a Winter activity for those short days in Seattle? Why not consider lichens as an alternative?

The Erasure of Kashmir’s Autonomy and the Myth of Gender Discrimination - Ather Zia

The Erasure of Kashmir’s Autonomy and the Myth of Gender Discrimination Lecture by Ather Zia (University of Northern Colorado) The autonomy of the Muslim majority Indian Occupied Kashmir was annulled without consent on August 5, 2019. Since then the region has been under communication lockdown and curfews, resulting in a humanitarian crisis. The right-wing Hindu supremacist government in India held gender discrimination in Kashmir as one of the foremost reasons for the removal of the region's autonomy. In the Indian narrative, the framing that Kashmir's autonomy allowed for gender injustice was made to appear as a natural outcome of the stereotype of Kashmiri patriarchy which is portrayed as violent and cracking down on women. This paper will analyze the Supreme Court case in India which was made pivotal in framing the gender discrimination angle in the removal of autonomy. At the same time, it will illustrate how the gender discrimination angle went unchallenged because it fit the established stereotype… Campus location: Thomson Hall (THO). Campus room: 317.

CSDE Seminar - Intergenerational Educational Mobility among Mexican Americans Across the 20th Century (Jennifer Van Hook)

Population Research Discovery Seminars Intergenerational Educational Mobility among Mexican Americans Across the 20th Century , Speaker: Jennifer Van Hook, Department of of Sociology and Demography, Pennsylvania State University Concerns about the integration of Mexican-Americans have been amplified by the phenomenon of third generation delay, whereby the 3rd-or-higher generation has similar or lower educational attainment than the 2nd generation in analyses of cross-sectional data. Using unique longitudinal data, however, we find no evidence of third generation delay. Although Mexican-Americans still experience disadvantages, the educational attainment of third-generation Mexican-Americans increased dramatically and consistently across generations. The third-generation delay pattern seen in cross-sectional analyses stems in large part from historical disadvantages in starting points and educational mobility. Finally, our results reveal dramatic improvements in Mexican-American educational… Campus location: Raitt Hall (RAI). Campus room: 121 Raitt Hall. Event types: Lectures/Seminars.

A&A Chair's Distinguished Seminar: Kakani Katija

4pm Seminar with reception following. Kakani Katija, Principal Engineer at Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute, continues our A&A Chair's Distinguished Speaker Series with her talk on the ecomechanics of invertebrates and bio-inspired engineering design. How do organisms live and develop in a turbulent and changing fluid environment, how do fluid interactions impact their ecology, swimming ability, and behavior, and how can we learn from these strategies for application to bio-inspired design? To address this science theme, her research strives to answer the following questions: What are the tools that we need to study marine organisms and processes in their natural environment? How can we use these tools to inform how systems function, their optimizations (e.g. ecological niches), and how do changes in this system (e.g. morphological and environmental perturbations) impact their ability to function? From the lessons learned, how can we apply these ideas to technology that furthers explorat… Campus location: Student Union Building (HUB). Campus room: 145. Event types: Lectures/Seminars.

Advances in Higher Education Research Seminar: "Practicing Into Inclusion: Utilizing a Learning Assistant Pedagogy Course to Explore and Address Impacts of Structural Oppression on Learning"

Can Learning be Fair?:  Explicit Acknowledgment of Structural Oppression as a Teaching Tool, Speaker: Jessica Cleeves, Center for Science and Mathematics Education, University of Utah Traditional diversity classes engage students in self-reflection about identity and experience, often around ideas like race, class, gender, ableism, and heteronormativity. These curricula typically explore complex problems deeply, but seldom discuss practical steps toward solutions. This problem-centric focus can leave individual students feeling helpless, overwhelmed, and/or guilty to the point of emotional overload. A creative new approach to impactful instruction about equity situates conversations about access and power within a context of enactable inclusive pedagogical practices. In this talk, Jessica Cleeves describes the Learning Assistant (LA) pedagogy course she developed for the University of Utah's Center for Science and Mathematics Education.
