"Writing to Cultivate Souls, Reading to Craft Bodies: Literacy and Lineage in a Native Chiefly House during the Qing" with Erik Mueggler, University of Michigan

Erik Mueggler traces the articulation of written signs with living and dead bodies in a chiefly lineage in Qing China. The Yi (or Nasu) chiefly heir Nuo Zhenxing used a Chinese-language diary to follow flows of food and words through his hereditary house during a long legal battle with his adoptive mother. His diary was stenographic and divinatory, intended to trace the house’s complex circulatory system and reveal whether it would absorb him or kill him. In a separate scriptive regime, Nasu-language texts were used to fashion ancestral bodies during funeral ceremonies. Nasu writing was inscribed onto a ritual field as composite spirit/human bodies, shaping the field as both textual and material. While these two regimes are kept strictly separate in the archive, echoes of each can be discerned in the other. Tracing relays among separate textual regimes operating in the same social field helps reveal forms of social relation obscured by the archive. Erik Mueggler is Professor of Anthropology at University… Campus room: Seminar Room (2M). Event types: Academics. Lectures/Seminars. Event sponsors: China Studies Program, Seattle Art Museum.

Supporting Legal Education in Afghanistan: A Celebration and Preliminary Assessment

In 2004, the U.S. Department of State entered into an agreement with the University of Washington School of Law to strengthen the Afghan justice sector by supporting legal education in Afghanistan. The core of that initial agreement was a commitment to recruit Afghan professors, principally from the Faculty of Law and Political Science at Kabul University, and guide them in obtaining LLM degrees from our university. In 2020, the Legal Education Support Program-Afghanistan (LESPA) will end. Over the past 15 years, the State Department, UW, and our Afghan partners, have shared experiences, frustrations, and successes that will have an enduring influence on all of us. We have worked with 30 faculties (Law and Political Science or Islamic Law) at 21 Afghan universities and will have graduated more than 60 LLMs and 5 PhDs, a true achievement. We have provided a platform from which additional Afghan professors have obtained advanced education in Germany, India, Japan, Indonesia, Turkey, and the United Kingdom.

Multiple scientific studies have shown that it lowers stress and blood pressure levels, while increasing immune system functioning, making you more resilient to diseases and illness. These walks are slow-paced and generally cover less than a mile of trail. During this time the guide, in partnership with the forest, will offer an evolving series of invitations crafted to help participants slow down and open their senses. The opening of one’s senses encourages mindfulness, which readies the heart and mind to be fully present in the natural world. Come discover the medicine of being in the forest.

Eastern thinking became an important part of Colombet’s perception of the world. Colombet began as a writer and wrote two essays in Les Temps Modernes “Les Femmes s’entêtent." Involved in the Feminist Movement in Paris, she met Simone de Beauvoir in 1974 and co-founded with her and others “La Ligue du Droit des Femmes." Vicky Colombet started a newspaper “Les Nouvelles Feministes” (1974 to 1977) with Simone de Beauvoir as the Editor-in-chief.

CSSS Seminar: Gail Potter, "Using social contact data to improve the overall effect estimate of a cluster-randomized influenza vaccination program in Senegal"

This study estimates the overall effect of a trivalent influenza vaccine program administered in a cluster-randomized trial in Senegal in 2009-2011. We apply cutting-edge methodology to combine social contact data with infection data to reduce bias arising from contamination between clusters (villages). Our time-varying additive effect estimate reveals that the vaccination program reduced influenza during the influenza season but increased it after pandemic H1N1 influenza appeared in the community. The estimated reduction in cumulative incidence due to the vaccination program was -0.68 percentage points in Year 1 of the study. While this suggests that the vaccine prevented 11% of infections (since control arm cumulative incidence was 6.13%), the estimate is not statistically significant. (A secondary analysis excluding A/H1N1pdm09 infections was significant.) The reduction in bias was small: a method assuming no contamination estimated a reduction of -0.65 percentage points. This is because contamination was… Campus location: Savery Hall (SAV). Campus room: 409. Event types: Academics. Lectures/Seminars.

Environmental Health Seminar: "Minimizing the Health Risks of Extreme Heat in a Warming World" - Gregory Wellenius, ScD

The continued, rapid rise of atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations and the corresponding increase in radiative forcing are expected to profoundly impact the Earth’s climate system and the communities and infrastructure that rely on it. The public health community now widely recognizes that continued climate change – through rising temperatures, increased frequency and intensity of extreme weather events, and sea level rise – is likely to have far-reaching impacts on population health and “represent an unacceptably high and potentially catastrophic risk to human health”. Dr. Wellenius' research is focused on developing the evidence needed to create healthy, resilient, and sustainable communities in the context of continued climate change. In this presentation he will share recent research from his group on the adverse health risks posed by episodes of extreme heat and the opportunities for preventing these effects in communities across the US. He will also share the goals of two recently funded grant appli… Campus location: Magnuson Health Sciences Center T (HST). Campus room: HSB T435. Event types: Lectures/Seminars. Twitter: #EHSeminar.

"Creating Han Ethnicity in Eleventh-Century Northeast Asia: The Impact of Liao Ethnic Politics and Song-Liao Diplomatic Practice" with Nicolas Tackett, UC Berkeley

When did the idea of “Han Chinese” first emerge as politically significant? And by what mechanism did the idea first emerge? This talk will propose that—though it had earlier roots going back to the third or fourth century—it was an idea that first propagated widely in Chinese political culture in the eleventh century. The eleventh century was an unusual moment in Chinese history because of the exceptionally high volume of diplomatic exchange between a China-based regime (the Song Dynasty) and a Eurasian Steppe-based regime (the Liao Dynasty). The notion of a “Han” people had roots in steppe ethnic policy and ethnic geography. This category of difference was then propagated to Chinese political and cultural elites via the experience and performance of ethnicity in Song-Liao diplomatic encounters. Nicolas Tackett is Professor of History at U.C. Berkeley. He is the author of two books. The Destruction of the Medieval Chinese Aristocracy(2014) examines how a network of powerful families survived at the… Campus location: Thomson Hall (THO). Campus room: 317. Event types: Academics.

CEI Interdisciplinary Seminar: Dr. Daniel P. Abraham, Argonne National Laboratory

Rapid cycling of lithium-ion batteries (LIBs), being developed for electric vehicles, is highly desirable. Rapid charge is needed to meet customer demands of time-parity with today’s gasoline-powered cars; rapid discharge is needed to deliver the high performance expected of electric vehicles. The U.S. DOE has set a target charging time of 15 minutes (4C rate) as a near-term goal, further indicating that a 5-minute charge (12C rate) could be a long-term goal. During discharge, the batteries should sustain rates ≥4C and ≥10C for full discharge and pulse discharge, respectively. At higher cycling rates, however, the capacity, cycle life, and thermal stability of these LIBs is known to degrade. The mechanisms responsible for this performance decline are being examined at Argonne National Laboratory as part of projects funded by the U.S. DOE. These mechanisms are believed to include the following: heterogeneous Li intercalation/extraction reactions in the active particles, non-uniform reactions across the poro… Campus room: 181.

Health Equity Lecture Series: Culture and Race in Global Health Research

Collins Airhihenbuwa is a global expert and a pioneer in centralizing culture in health behaviors. He leads the Global Research Against Non-Communicable Disease (GRAND) initiative at the School of Public Health at Georgia State University. He is also a professor of Health Management & Policy. Researching culture and race, in the context of health, demands a transdisciplinary approach to examining the complexities of individual and collective behaviors relative to disease burdens that weigh on underrepresented minorities.

Japanese Wartime Slogans and Intellectuals: The Philippines Case: 1942-45

After numerous discussions, on December 1, 1941 civilian and military leaders in Japan came to the decision to attack Pearl Harbor, knowing the risks involved.  To compensate for the imbalance of military resources, appeals to national spirit and awakening were heavily utilized to win the cooperation of the Japanese and peoples in occupied areas. Policymakers came up with persuasive slogans such as “Asia for the Asians” and “Building the Greater East Asian Co-Prosperity Sphere.”  This lecture will examine how Japanese intellectuals developed these slogans and how people of occupied territories, in this case Filipino intellectuals, reacted to them.

Advances in Higher Education Research Seminar with Manka Varghese

English Learners/Multilingual Students' Transitions to and Experiences in Higher Education Manka Varghese, associate professor, College of Education, University of Washington. Professor Manka Varghese describes English learners/multilingual students’ transitions to and experiences in higher education, and demonstrates their multidimensionality. Rather than viewing these students through the lens of linguistic deficit, she suggests that it is more appropriate to consider the various resources they have available, such as: how to use different languages in different contexts, or for different audiences; using their many languages as an integrated communication system; and other resources from their communities.

CSSS Seminar: Bin Yu, "Three principles of data science: predictability, computability, and stability (PCS)"

In this talk, I'd like to discuss the intertwining importance and connections of three principles of data science in the title and the PCS workflow that is built on the three principles for a data science life cycle including problem formulation, data cleaning, EDA, modeling, post-hoc analysis and data conclusions. The principles will be demonstrated in the context of two collaborative projects in neuroscience and genomics for interpretable data results and testable hypothesis generation. If time allows, I will present proposed PCS inference that includes perturbation intervals and PCS hypothesis testing. The PCS inference uses prediction screening and takes into account both data and model perturbations. Finally, a PCS documentation is proposed based on Rmarkdown, iPython, or Jupyter Notebook, with publicly available, reproducible codes and narratives to back up human choices made throughout a data science life cycle. The PCS workflow and documentation are demonstrated in a genomics case study available on Z… Campus location: Savery Hall (SAV). Campus room: 409. Event types: Academics. Lectures/Seminars.

Nancy Fraser (Katz Distinguished Lecture in the Humanities)

RSVP “Socialism” is back! For decades the word was considered an embarrassment—a despised failure and relic of a bygone era, rightly consigned to the historical dustbin. No more! Today, politicians like Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wear the label proudly and win support, while organizations that espouse it attract new members in droves. But what exactly do they mean by “socialism”? However welcome, enthusiasm for the word does not itself translate into serious reflection on its content. What does or should “socialism” signify in the present era? This lecture provides a possible answer. Drawing on an expanded conception of capitalism, Nancy Fraser constructs an expanded conception of socialism that overcomes the narrow economism of received understandings. Disclosing the capitalist economy’s contradictory and destructive relation to its “non-economic” background conditions, Fraser contends that socialism must do more than transform the economy. Over and above that desideratum, it must also tr… Campus location: Kane Hall (KNE). Campus room: 120. Event types: Lectures/Seminars. Wednesday, May 8, 2019, 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM.

Analytical Chemistry Seminar: Prof. Charles Henry

"Instrumented Tissue-in-a-Chip: A Bridge from In Vitro to In Vivo" Professor Charles Henry – Departments of Chemistry and Chemical & Biological Engineering, Colorado State University Microfluidic methods provide a promising path to mimicking human organ function with applications ranging from fundamental biology to drug metabolism and toxicity. The vast majority of these systems use dissociated, immortalized, or stem cells to create two and three-dimensional models in vitro. While these systems can provide valuable information, they are fundamentally incapable of recreating the three-dimensional complexity of real tissue. As a result, an important gap exists between in vitro models and in vivo systems. To address this gap, we have begun combining microfluidic devices with ex vivo tissue slices or explants to recreate model systems that capture the cellular diversity of real tissue and bridge the gap between in vitro models and in vivo systems. In this presentation two systems will be discussed. The… Campus location: Bagley Hall (BAG). Campus room: 261. Event types: Lectures/Seminars. Monday, May 13, 2019, 3:30 PM – 4:30 PM.

"Japan’s Monarchy and the New Emperor in Historical Perspective", Griffith and Patricia Way Lecture with Ken Ruoff, Portland State University

Join us for a special presentation by professor Ken Ruoff at a momentous turning point as the Japanese monarchy turns the page to a new era and bids farewell to the Heisei period.  The constitutional position of Japan’s monarchy was fundamentally redefined after the war, and initially conservatives rejected that the emperor was to be “no more than a symbol.” But by the 1970s, the political right had adopted a new interpretation of the throne, namely that throughout most of Japan’s long history, the “true essence” of the throne had been that of a symbol outside politics. Although individual emperors (and emperesses) now operate under strict constitutional limits, it is nonetheless true that each emperor (and empress) puts his stamp on the throne.  This was clearly the case with Emperor Akihito, and we can expect it to the case with the next emperor, Naruhito. This talk will explain the structure of the postwar monarchy, and then analyze how Emperor Akihito employed his symbolic position to influence Japanes… Campus location: Kane Hall (KNE).
