PANEL: War or peace? U.S.-North Korea Relations

The June 12 summit in Singapore between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un marked a high point in U.S.-North Korea relations. But in recent months, diplomatic progress has stalled, and confusion abounds about what exactly had been agreed to and whether peace in the Korean Peninsula is in peril once again. What are the prospects for diplomacy that could lead to a breakthrough? Will North Korea accept a defined path towards denuclearization? What are the common grounds whereby the United States and North Korea can build trust and avoid catastrophic miscalculations that could lead to war? From the Pacific Northwest to Washington, DC, what is the impact on Americans and our allies in East Asia if diplomacy fails? To help us answer these questions, The D.C.-based Council on Korean Americans (CKA) is organizing a free, public event in partnership with the Korea Foundation and the Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies at University of Washington. Lunch will be provided. Pl… Campus location: Kane Hall (KNE). Campus room: Walker-Ames Room. Event types: Lectures/Seminars.

Psychology Colloquium with Andrea Stocco, PhD

Andrea Stocco, PhD Assistant Professor, Department of Psychology University of Washington The Role of the Basal Ganglia in the Human Cognitive Architecture: From Neural Circuits to Large-Scale Neuroimaging Data The basal ganglia are one of the most studied circuits of the brain, playing a critical role in domains as diverse as motor control, language, memory, and decision-making. Multiple accounts of the basal ganglia’s role in human cognition have been put forward, but none can account well for the diversity of functions that involve this circuit. In this talk, Dr. Stocco will present a unifying theory of basal ganglia function, specifically, that it modulates the flow of signals to the prefrontal cortex. To support the theory, he will provide converging evidence from multiple experiments and approaches. First, he will show results of computational models and simulations, which describe how this function could be implemented at the biological level. Next, he will outline how the modulatory function… Campus location: Physics / Astronomy Auditorium (PAA). Campus room: A114. Event types: Lectures/Seminars. Event sponsors: Department of Psychology.

Gardening with the Seasons: Fall

Autumn is a dynamic season in the garden. Many plants are heading into dormancy, while others are in a period of active growth. Doing the right gardening tasks now can set the stage for next year's garden: adding new plants for seasonal interest or making changes to address problems observed over the past season. Some of the best things to do - or to avoid - at this time of year may seem counter-intuitive to some gardeners. This session will cover what to plant in fall, lawn care, how to prepare the garden for winter, and how to maximize seasonal interest and appearance. Cost: $20 Register online, or by phone (206-685-8033) About this series: Plants and gardens don't live by the written calendar, but by the seasonal cycles and cues of changes in daylight, temperature, and moisture.  When gardeners become acquainted with the seasonal rhythms and life cycles in the garden, and learn to work in sync with nature, caring for the garden becomes more of a process and less of a battle with potential garden… Campus room: Douglas Classroom.

Book Launch – Vesna Pavlović’s Lost Art

Vesna Pavlović’s Lost Art: Photography, Display, and the Archive is the first volume to focus on the Serbian-American photographer Vesna Pavlović. Published by Hanes Art Gallery at Wake Forest University and designed by Stephanie Sauer of artlyrics, the book contextualizes Pavlović’s photographs and installations in relationship to art history, the legacy of the Cold War in Eastern Europe, and contemporary display practices. Pavlović’s work mines history and personal experience to ask the viewer to consider both the utopian impulses and, at times, empty pageantry of sites of display. Her work draws upon a cinematic sense of mise-en-scene in a way that encourages us to question photography’s perceived “truth.” This consideration of the nature of the photographic image, or, in her words, “the photographic moment,” also allows her to explore related questions of memory and representation. Remarks will be made by Rebecca Cummins (Professor of Photomedia, UW School of Art + Art History + Design) and Vesna… Campus location: Art Building (ART). Campus room: Jacob Lawrence Gallery.

Public Lecture with Ronan Farrow

An Evening with Ronan Farrow Ronan Farrow is an influential voice in government and media, helping traditional institutions address the frustrations – and tap the promise – of a new generation. Forbes Magazine has twice named him one of the “30 Under 30” most influential people in law and policy, a contest he has gone on to judge. In May 2018 he won the world’s most prestigious journalist award, the Pulitzer Prize, for his reporting on sexual harassment by Harvey Weinstein. In April 2018 he published a new book, War on Peace: The End of Diplomacy and the Decline of American Influence, which gives a unique insight into US foreign policy, and what many describe as US resignation in global leadership. In this book, Farrow interviews all of America’s former living secretary of state. Farrow served as a State Department diplomat in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and reported to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as the United States’ first special adviser for global youth during the Arab Spring revolutions.… Campus location: Kane Hall (KNE).

POV Annual Ethics Lecture

Gathering Hall, UW Intellectual House Reception at 5:30 p.m. Lecture: 6:00 - 9:00 p.m. "Why Worry about Future Generations?" Samuel Scheffler Professor of Philosophy New York University The things we do today may make life worse for future generations. But why should we care what happens to people who won’t be born until after all of us are gone? Why should we care whether there are any people who are born after all of us are gone? If we find these questions difficult to answer, that is because we lack a highly developed set of ideas about the value of human continuity. Yet we are more invested in the fate of our descendants than we may realize, and we have more reasons to care about what happens to them than we commonly acknowledge. Implicit in our existing values and attachments are a variety of powerful reasons for wanting the chain of human generations to persist into the indefinite future under conditions conducive to human flourishing.

Frontiers in Higher Education Research Seminar: Active Enough? Screens and Active Learning Classes

Active Enough? Screens and Active Learning Classes Speaker: Ian Schnee, Lecturer, Department of Philosophy There is significant evidence that the use of phones and other screens in class negatively impact student learning. There is also a great amount of evidence that classroom response technologies (CRT), like “clickers” and Poll Everywhere, positively impact student learning. Learning technology companies and universities (including UW) have largely switched to bring-your-own device (BYOD) models of CRT. However, no one has studied whether the fact that this model necessitates screen use in class takes away from the positive benefits of the active-learning allowed by CRT. Dr. Schnee’s work is a three-year project aimed at answering that question. Registration is free, but space is limited. Please RSVP. Campus location: Odegaard Undergraduate Library (OUG). Campus room: 220. Event types: Lectures/Seminars. Event sponsors: Center for Teaching and Learning. Tuesday, October 9, 2018, 2:30 PM – 3:20 PM. For more info visit www.washington.edu.

Public Lecture with Cornell Clayton

Off the Rails: Populism and Paranoia in American Politics Anti-establishment politicians rail against the government they lead, populist leaders howl about corruption and a “rigged” political system, fake news and wild conspiracy theories abound on the internet and social media. Has American politics gone off the rails? Author and political scientist Cornell Clayton explores how American politics has once again become an arena for suspicious and angry minds. Rather than debunking today’s populist claims and conspiratorial theories, Clayton argues that populism and paranoia have often played important roles in American politics in the past. From the populist rhetoric and policies of Thomas Jefferson, Andrew Jackson, Teddy Roosevelt and Ronald Reagan, to the fears of the Illuminati, Masons, communist infiltrators and black helicopters, Americans have a history of seeing politics in apocalyptic terms and believing powerful elites secretly conspire against ordinary citizens.

Psychology Colloquium with Shannon Dorsey, PhD

Shannon Dorsey, PhD Associate Professor, Department of Psychology University of Washington Implementation of Effective Mental Health Treatments: Local and Global Although a large number of evidence-based treatments for mental health problems have been developed, they are not consistently available to those with need. Locally, in Washington State and in the United States more broadly, existing mental health care often is not evidence-based. Globally, in low and middle income countries, mental health care is rarely available, in part due to a shortage of mental health professionals and very limited funding for mental health. Implementation science, commonly defined as the study of methods and strategies to promote the use of effective treatments in routine practice, aims to improve population health by bridging the research to practice gap. I present findings from our local implementation science work in Washington State, testing clinical supervision as a method for increasing mental health provider use… Campus location: Physics / Astronomy Auditorium (PAA).

The Promised Land - Polish film screening

The Promised Land (Polish: Ziemia obiecana) is a 1975 Polish drama film directed by Andrzej Wajda, based on a novel by Władysław Reymont. Set in the industrial city of Łódź The Promised Land tells the story of a Pole, a German, and a Jew struggling to build a factory in the raw world of 19th century capitalism. Wajda shows in his film a shocking image of the city, with its dirty and dangerous factories and ostentatiously opulent residences of the industrialists. Visually stunning (cinematography!!), The Promised Land vividly draws the characters of the three friends and their often ruthless pursuit of fortune. By concentrating on three individuals, Wajda is able to reflect Poland's 19th century ascension from ancient feudalism to modern capitalism. The film was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film and appeared in Martin Scorsese Presents: Masterpieces of Polish Cinema. The Promised Land will be introduced by Prof. Kat Dziwirek who’ll present her native Łódź a city which experien… Campus location: Thomson Hall (THO). Campus room: 101. Event types: Screenings.

Getting To The Root Of The Problem

Both recently planted trees and established trees that have appeared healthy for years can suddenly exhibit signs of decline or even death, yet show no injury or damage above ground. Why? It is often due to something happening below ground, specifically with the roots. This class at the Washington Park Arboretum will mix lecture, discussion and field demonstrations as we examine common root defects, nursery stock standards, best management practices for planting and transplanting, root inspections, and mitigation for root problems. Demonstrations will include planting and transplanting techniques (bare root, container, ball and burlap), root washing of nursery stock, and air spade use for root crown excavation. Lunch included.
