It helps us to confront and address some of the most pressing issues of our time. Art has the power to shift the way we see and understand the world around us, and the worlds within us. Free Your Mind: Art and Incarceration in Michigan invites us to consider these qualities of art, while also grappling with the carceral system and the many ways it affects the lives of all of us. Currently there are approximately 2.2 million people incarcerated in the United States, and in Michigan, there are roughly 33,000 residents currently serving time in the prison system. Working together with a coalition of more than a dozen organizations and Michigan State University units and departments, Free Your Mind explores the inner worlds of incarcerated individuals and the fundamental issues that shape conversations around incarceration today. The exhibition centers on four key topics of inquiry: Michigan’s length of sentencing and overcrowding in prisons; the impact of incarceration on women; youth incarceration; and the dangers of COVID-19. The exhibition features artists, poets, and storytellers of great achievement. The majority of these artists are either currently or formerly incarcerated. Their works on view invite us to consider the role art-making plays in prisons as a liberating force, and offer unique perspectives on the experience of incarceration. The works also invite us to approach the subject of incarceration with an open mind. Free Your Mind aims to cultivate a greater sense of empathy for those directly impacted by incarceration and an understanding that their growth as individuals is linked to the greater health of the society we all live in, together. Free Your Mind: Art and Incarceration in Michigan is organized by the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University and curated by Steven L. Bridges, Senior Curator and Director of Curatorial Affairs, and Janie Paul, Senior Curator and Cofounder, Annual Exhibitions of Art by Michigan Prisoners, a project of the Prison Creative Arts Project at the University of Michigan.

For some, this exhibition at the MSU Broad Art Lab is the first opportunity to show their work since regaining their freedom. Art-making has helped these artists during the dark years of their incarceration, and we hope the exhibition inspires visitors to learn more about how to support formerly incarcerated people reconnecting with their communities. Martín Vargas, artist and curator of this exhibition, invites visitors and supporters to not only connect with the artists through their work, but also during select Art Lab studio hours, which will feature several of the artists working in person.

In many environments, particularly in politics, message receivers engage in motivated reasoning, distorting how they process information in directions they find more attractive. This paper uses two online experiments to study what information senders choose to send to receivers on topics that evoke politically-motivated beliefs. Experiment 1, conducted using a sample of social media users, studies the effect of incentivizing senders to be perceived as truthful. These incentives cause senders to send less truthful messages. With these incentives, senders send more false information when it aligns with receivers’ motivated beliefs, even controlling for receivers’ current beliefs. Receivers do not anticipate the adverse effects of senders’ incentives. Experiment 2 isolates the role that motivated reasoning plays by constructing an environment in which receivers assess the truthfulness of messages from a computer and senders choose which message to be paid for. Senders predict that politically-motivated reasoning impacts receivers’ inference, they demand information about receivers’ political preferences, and they use the receivers’ politics to strategically choose less truthful computer messages.

Triples of people that have three positive relations (e.g. friendship) between each other are strongly overrepresented. Triples with two negative (e.g. enmity) and one positive relation are also overrepresented, triples with one or three negative relations are drastically suppressed. For almost a century, the mechanism behind this very specific (“balanced”) triad statistics remains elusive. Here we propose a simple realistic adaptive network model where agents tend to minimize social tension that arises from dyadic interactions. Both, opinions of agents, and their signed links (positive or negative relations) are updated in the dynamics. The novelty of the model arises from the fact that agents only need information about their local neighbors in the network and do not require (often unrealistic) higher-order network information for their relation- and opinion updates. We demonstrate the quality of the model on detailed temporal relation-data of a society of thousands of players of a massive multiplayer online game where we can observe triangle formation directly. It not only successfully predicts the distribution of triangle types but also explains empirical group-size distributions, which are essential for social cohesion. We discuss the details of the phase diagrams behind the model, their parameter dependence, and comment to what extent the results might apply universally in societies. *Speaker bio* Tuan Pham is a PostDoc at the CSH since September 2021.

Agents differ in present bias and earnings ability, both unobservable to a planner with paternalistic and redistributive motives. We characterize the solution to this two-dimensional screening problem and provide a decentralization using realistic policy instruments: mandatory savings at low incomes but a choice between subsidized savings vehicles at high incomes–resembling Social Security, 401(k) and IRA accounts in the US. Offering more savings choice at higher incomes facilitates redistribution. To solve large-scale versions of this problem numerically, we propose a general, computationally stable, and efficient active-set algorithm. Relative to the current US retirement system, we find significant welfare gains from increasing mandatory savings and limiting savings choice at low incomes.”,https://events.umich.edu/event/87991,”Off Campus Location”,,Virtual,,”Economics seminar”,”Department of Economics Public Finance” 88948-21659247,”2021-11-29 18:00:00″,”2021-11-29 19:00:00″,”Carina Sarbaugh – Brand Management, Advertising, Marketing, Financial Analysis”,”BECO X FISA Guest Speaker Series”,”Workshop / Seminar”,”On Monday, November 29, 2021 @ 6:00PM-7:00PM ET, come virtually listen to Carina Surbaugh (UM BA Economics & Spanish; General Mills marketing and brand manager, IRI market analysis and engagement manager, ConAgra Brands senior brand manager, and Sara Lee Frozen Bakery Senior Director of Marketing) discuss brand management, advertising, marketing, and financial analysis, along with case studies in these various areas.

Please secure and read the entire 455-page novel. First published in 1939, the novel takes place during America’s Great Depression, which lasted from the Stock Market Crash of October 1929 until the beginning of World War II. During this time, a long period of drought and high winds impacted large parts of the American Midwest, creating what was called the Dust Bowl. Many people in the lower Midwest moved elsewhere, hoping to find fertile land on which to make a living. The novel was #12 on the list of the 100 most-loved books in PBS’s The Great American Read. Instructor, Mary Engelhardt has a BS degree in elementary education with a minor in Language and Literature from Eastern Michigan University.

Digital City: A Spatial Study on Nonextant Islamic Infrastructure in Early Modern Ottoman Filibe”,”Grigor Boykov, Researcher, Austrian Academy of Sciences”,”Lecture / Discussion”,”The symbolic rupture with the imperial past in many post-Ottoman cities in the Balkans materialized via organized effort for “modernization” of the urban space systematically carried out by the nation-state authorities. As a result, a large segment of the built-in environment was replaced early on by “modern” public and residential architecture, a process that went hand in hand with a substantial alteration of the inherited street network. The transformative nature of the intentional policies for reshaping the cityscapes often quickly obliterated the Ottoman urban tissue, thus depriving modern scholarship of studying the morphology of the cities from the Ottoman era based on preserved examples. Moreover, contemporary archaeology cannot be particularly effective because most of the buildings that replaced the Ottoman structures still stand in densely built modern urban cores, which impedes any destructive and/or non-destructive archaeological studies. This apparent lack of reliable, cadastral, or archaeologically derived data calls for alternative methods to study the long-vanished Ottoman urban fabric and the public buildings constituting its skeleton. Bringing together a wide array of different sources that offer useful information on architectural objects, street patterns, and separate residential areas (mahalle), this lecture aims to introduce a methodology for creating a spatially referenced database, which can digitally recreate the non-extant urban fabric of Ottoman cities in the Balkans. Focusing on a detailed analysis of Filibe (Plovdiv), the principal town of Central Bulgaria, the lecture seeks to demonstrate the general applicability of the methodology for studying urban development across the Ottoman Empire. Grigor Boykov, Ph.D. in Ottoman history (2013), is a researcher at the Institute for Habsburg and Balkan Studies at the Austrian Academy of Sciences. Before joining the Academy in 2019, he taught at the University of Sofia (2014-2019), Central European University in Budapest (2015-2016), and was a research fellow at the Netherlands Institute in Turkey (2012-2014). Boykov has been a team member of the projects “The Fashioning of a Sunni Orthodoxy and the Entangled Histories of Confession-Building in the Ottoman Empire, 15th -17th Centuries” (2015-2016) and “Industrialisation and Urban Growth from the mid-nineteenth century Ottoman Empire to Contemporary Turkey in a Comparative Perspective, 1850-2000” (2017-2019). In 2019, he received MSCA-IF for his project Population Geography of Bulgaria, 1500-1920: An Historical Spatial Analysis (POPGEO_BG), conducted at Koç University in Istanbul. Among other projects, Boykov is currently working on a Historical Gazetteer of the Ottoman Empire (in cooperation with M. Erdem Kabadayı) and the Ottoman Archive of Zograf Monastery on Mt. Athos.

Stormwater outfalls that discharge into coastal waters have detrimental impacts on human and ecosystem health, and stormwater runoff often results in elevated levels of pathogens and nutrients, which can lead to fishing and swimming closures, illnesses, and negative impacts on coastal ecosystems. To better understand the effects of stormwater, a project team based at the Rachel Carson component of the North Carolina National Estuarine Research Reserve used a comprehensive sampling regimen to gather quantitative information that helped them assess the effects of precipitation and tidal inundation on stormwater impacts, and identify sources of fecal contamination. In this webinar, members of the project team discuss the technical and collaborative aspects of their approach, including the sampling regimen and how their engagement approach resulted in a decision-maker summit and citizen science app that fosters ongoing community engagement on stormwater issues.”,https://events.umich.edu/event/88681,”Off Campus Location”,,Virtual,,”Environment Sustainability”,”Graham Sustainability Institute” 89488-21663319,”2021-11-30 15:00:00″,”2021-11-30 16:00:00″,”IOE JOB TALK PRACTICE: Data Analytics & Operations Research for Vulnerable Populations – Anna White”,,”Workshop / Seminar”,”Abstract: Studies of vulnerable populations have an important and growing presence in the field of operations research and data analytics. In this talk, l will present one chapter of my dissertation work in which I use inferential modeling to better understand location characteristics for illicit massage businesses in the United States. Illicit massage businesses are a venue for sex and labor trafficking in the US and are primarily regulated at the state and local level, allowing for transience and spatial variation across local boundaries. Using web-scraped advertisement data over a 6-month period, I modeled illicit massage business prevalence at the Census tract and county levels. I used publicly available data to analyze location characteristics using a single- and multi-stage inferential machine learning model. Significant contributors to IMB prevalence included the state in which they were located and the racial composition, religious presence, and rent and income levels in the area surrounding the IMB. I will close the talk by discussing my insights on thoughtfully using data to model and understand vulnerable populations. Bio: Anna White is a PhD candidate in Industrial and Operations Engineering at the University of Michigan and a member of the Science, Technology, and Public Policy Certificate Program. She specializes in applications-driven research using operations research tools including data analytics, simulation modeling, predictive modeling, spatial data analysis, and applied optimization.

Register at: https://myumi.ch/7Zd7Y Cosponsored by the School of Kinesiology Elite sporting culture in South Korea is often regarded as the last hangover from the authoritarian military regimes in the 1960-80s – a spatiotemporally extended barrack ridden with collectivism, strict hierarchy, violence, misogyny and patriotic ideologies, etc. The country’s state-sponsored elite athlete fostering system is still likened to ‘Silmi-do’, a remote island where a military special force was trained to invade Pyongyang in the 1960s, owing to the nature of the system, including its coercive training, cultural isolation and failure in protecting athletes’ human rights. Perhaps a more sociological edition of this line of public discourse can be sought from Goffman’s total institution (1961) given the degrees of batch living and time-tabled control over athletes’ daily routines, especially considering the year-round camp training practice from an early age towards the national training centre, formerly notorious for its overly harsh training regimen. However, this 20th century view of strong institutional control and passive agency seems outdated as it fails to capture the ways in which contemporary athletes engage with the elite sport development regime (ESDR). While there certainly remains a higher degree of totalising power (e.g., isolated time-commitment towards gruelling training) in the ESDR, individuals are not forced or ‘culturally doped’ to enter and reside within the regime. They voluntarily decide to join the regime in pursuit of success in society in their own ways, akin to the members of what Scott (2010) termed ‘reinventive institutions’ in which individuals attempt to construct an elevated social self and status. Informed by Scott’s (2010) contrast between total and reinventive institutions, this talk presents a (re-)conceptualisation of South Korea’s elite sport development system. Utilising data from a qualitative study on young South Korean performance athletes, the presentation (1) discusses the relative balance between institutional coercion and voluntaristic agency manifested within the ESDR and (2) compares the balance with those in other institutions of K-society (e.g., K-pop, K-universities, K-companies, etc.) as a way of exploring whether the ESDR is the last bastion of the erstwhile totalising culture or the epitome of reinventive institutions on the rise. Minhyeok Tak is Lecturer of sport management in the School of Sport, Exercise and Health Sciences at Loughborough University, UK. His research focuses on integrity issues in sport, such as sports betting, match-fixing and athlete safeguarding. Minhyeok is currently working on an IOC-funded project on abuse issues in sport, entitled ‘Is Safe Sport incompatible with high performance?

It helps us to confront and address some of the most pressing issues of our time. Art has the power to shift the way we see and understand the world around us, and the worlds within us. Free Your Mind: Art and Incarceration in Michigan invites us to consider these qualities of art, while also grappling with the carceral system and the many ways it affects the lives of all of us. Currently there are approximately 2.2 million people incarcerated in the United States, and in Michigan, there are roughly 33,000 residents currently serving time in the prison system. Working together with a coalition of more than a dozen organizations and Michigan State University units and departments, Free Your Mind explores the inner worlds of incarcerated individuals and the fundamental issues that shape conversations around incarceration today. The exhibition centers on four key topics of inquiry: Michigan’s length of sentencing and overcrowding in prisons; the impact of incarceration on women; youth incarceration; and the dangers of COVID-19. The exhibition features artists, poets, and storytellers of great achievement. The majority of these artists are either currently or formerly incarcerated. Their works on view invite us to consider the role art-making plays in prisons as a liberating force, and offer unique perspectives on the experience of incarceration. The works also invite us to approach the subject of incarceration with an open mind. Free Your Mind aims to cultivate a greater sense of empathy for those directly impacted by incarceration and an understanding that their growth as individuals is linked to the greater health of the society we all live in, together.

Register at: https://myumi.ch/yKeER For over a decade in Hungary, the FIDESZ government of Viktor Orban has pursued the making of an “illiberal” democracy. During this period, CREES has sponsored lectures on events in Hungary, including Hungary’s outsized influence on populist and far-right movements elsewhere in Europe and more recently in the United States. Today’s roundtable continues this conversation with the work of two Hungarian anthropologists, Violetta Zentai and Margit Feischmidt. Each will briefly discuss aspects of their current work investigating contemporary Hungary under the Orban regime and then open the discussion to questions from the audience. The roundtable will be moderated by professor of anthropology and CREES faculty associate Krisztina Fehervary. Professor Zentai will provide an overview from her work on the “anti-gender” political discourses propagated by the current authoritarian-populist regime, and its linkages to de-democratization in the region. Anti-gender discourses not only embrace sexist, homophobic, and anti-gender-equality reasoning, but help enact a nativist and biopolitical right-wing social imagination. She will address the transnational sources of this discourse as well as how it is used by home-grown actors to normalize and make respectable forms of discrimination that were once considered populist, backwards, and exclusionary. Professor Feischmidt’s presentation will draw on a larger project undertaken to understand the cultural logic and social support of new forms of nationalism in Hungary. Here, she will discuss political elites who have fostered the contemporary “Trianon Cult,” a new phenomenon of collective mourning for losses suffered a century ago in the Treaty of Trianon (1920). This “view from above” will be complemented with a “view from below,” by examining the meanings that audiences give to these newly-constructed collective memories. The argument of the paper is that while the Trianon-cult invokes a historical trauma, it in fact speaks to current feelings of loss and resentment.

While iterative plurality has been shown to only return alternatives with at most one less initial vote than the truthful winner, it is less understood how agents’ welfare changes in equilibrium. To this end, we differentiate agents’ utility from their manipulation mechanism and determine iterative plurality’s ADPoA in the worst- and average-cases. We first prove that the worst-case ADPoA is linear in the number of agents. To overcome this negative result, we study the average-case ADPoA and prove that equilibrium winners have a constant order welfare advantage over the truthful winner in expectation. Our positive results illustrate the prospect for social welfare to increase due to strategic manipulation. *Speaker Bio* Joshua Kavner is a doctoral student in the computer science department at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.

COMBINING PROBABILITY NON-PROBABILITY SAMPLES Although probability sample designs remain a “gold standard” in survey research, demand for use of non-probability samples is increasing, due to, among other reasons, rising costs and falling response rates in probability samples and the availability of “big data” from administrative databases, social media users, and other sources. Design-based inference, in which the distribution for inference is generated by the random mechanism used by the sampler, cannot be used for non-probability samples. If probability and non-probability samples are available that target the same population, the probability sample can be used to account for possible selection bias if there are sufficient overlapping covariates even if the outcome is not available in the probability sample. One approach is “quasi-randomization” in which pseudo-inclusion probabilities are estimated based on covariates available for samples and nonsample units. An extension of this uses a model to predict values for the outcome in the probability sample, yielding a “doubly robust” estimator that consistent estimates target population quantities if either the pseudo-inclusion probabilities or outcome model is correct. I will overview these approaches, with a focus on using Bayesian additive regression tree to reduce model misspecification, and apply results to “naturalistic” driving studies that use volunteer samples to follow long-term driving behavior.”,https://events.umich.edu/event/88381,”Off Campus Location”,,Virtual,,”brown bag Data Free Graduate Students Mathematics Survey Research Talk Virtual”,”Michigan Program in Survey and Data Science” 40967-21631280,”2021-12-01 12:00:00″,”2021-12-01 12:30:00″,”North Campus Mindfulness Meditation Drop-In (Online)”,,Well-being,”Take a moment to create some space to breathe and invite a sense of calm into your day.

Realizing these lofty goals will require low-dimensional crystals whose size, shape, structure, and composition can be tailored to atomic levels of precision. Chemistry will play a vital role in creating these crystalline building blocks of quantum matter. In this vein, the Kempa group has focused on the precision synthesis of 2-dimensional (2D) materials to harness quantum phenomena. Our work with 2D atomic lattices and 2D molecular frameworks has revealed that even subtle manipulations of the dimensionality and morphology of these materials yield substantial property changes. Notably, we can dramatically manipulate the structure of 2D transition-metal dichalcogenides by growing them on chemically tailored surfaces. The resulting nanoribbons emit light whose energy and profile show an unusual progression with crystal size. Seeking to expand the 2D materials landscape, we have also prepared and examined new 2D molecular frameworks. Reversible phase switching can be induced in these frameworks with concomitant modulation of electronic transport. Our efforts underscore the importance of rational synthesis in building low-dimensional materials that enable new discoveries and advance the fields of optics, electronics, energy conversion, and quantum sensing.

RSVP here: https://myumi.ch/r8zv7 Mindfulness Meditation is a skill that can be learned and when practiced has the power to enhance a sense of wellbeing, focus, and interconnectedness. As we all continue to navigate uncertainty and challenges that are inherent in the act of being human, we benefit from and are grateful for diverse cultures and traditions across the globe. Collectively they have passed on a wide variety of contemplative practices that encourage reflection, silence, and centering into the present moment to help us cope and better respond. Engaging in contemplative practices support the individual, by cultivating a sense of awareness and well-being, and benefit society by enhancing one’s capacity to create connection and community, and to become an agent of positive social change. There are many forms of contemplative practices, including meditation. Mindfulness meditation is one form aimed to help focus our awareness on the present moment as it unfolds, moment to moment, without judgment. Research on mindfulness continues to find a wide range of benefits. In short, Mindfulness may be viewed as cognitive training that bolsters our ability to handle stress, poor mood, and threat. It also increases our capacity to focus our attention on what is most important to us and to be more compassionate to ourselves and to others. On Wednesdays from 12:15 – 12:45 pm, we come together in community to practice this skill in an open and supportive virtual space.

It helps us to confront and address some of the most pressing issues of our time. Art has the power to shift the way we see and understand the world around us, and the worlds within us. Free Your Mind: Art and Incarceration in Michigan invites us to consider these qualities of art, while also grappling with the carceral system and the many ways it affects the lives of all of us. Currently there are approximately 2.2 million people incarcerated in the United States, and in Michigan, there are roughly 33,000 residents currently serving time in the prison system. Working together with a coalition of more than a dozen organizations and Michigan State University units and departments, Free Your Mind explores the inner worlds of incarcerated individuals and the fundamental issues that shape conversations around incarceration today. The exhibition centers on four key topics of inquiry: Michigan’s length of sentencing and overcrowding in prisons; the impact of incarceration on women; youth incarceration; and the dangers of COVID-19. The exhibition features artists, poets, and storytellers of great achievement. The majority of these artists are either currently or formerly incarcerated. Their works on view invite us to consider the role art-making plays in prisons as a liberating force, and offer unique perspectives on the experience of incarceration. The works also invite us to approach the subject of incarceration with an open mind. Free Your Mind aims to cultivate a greater sense of empathy for those directly impacted by incarceration and an understanding that their growth as individuals is linked to the greater health of the society we all live in, together.

We will consider how migration is transforming societies around the globe. Are receiving countries better or worse off when they welcome new immigrants? How can migrant-receiving societies do a better job welcoming immigrants? How do sending countries fare when their citizens leave? How can sending countries best harness international migration opportunities for development back home? Overall, is a world with international migration better off than a world without it? Our speaker, Dean Yang is Professor of Economics and Public Policy at the University of Michigan. His research agenda spans international migration, microfinance, health, disasters, and political economy. His fieldwork locations include El Salvador, Guatemala, Indonesia, Malawi, Mozambique, and the Philippines, as well as migrant populations worldwide. He teaches courses in development economics at the Ph.D., master, and undergraduate levels. A native of the Philippines, he received his undergraduate and Ph.D. degrees in economics from Harvard University. Pre-registration is required via the OLLI website or phone.

U-M Industrial and Operations Engineering graduate students and faculty are especially encouraged to attend. Title: Finding low-dimensional structure in messy data Abstract: In order to draw inferences from large, high-dimensional datasets, we often seek simple structure that models the phenomena represented in those data. Low-rank linear structure is one of the most flexible and efficient such models, allowing efficient prediction, inference, and anomaly detection. However, classical techniques for learning low-rank models assume your data have only minor corruptions that are uniform over samples. Modern research in optimization has begun to develop new techniques to handle realistic messy data — where data are missing, have wide variations in quality, and/or are observed through nonlinear measurement systems. In this talk I will give a high-level overview of recent research in this area. Then I will focus on the problem of learning linear subspace structure from multiple data sources of varying quality. This is common in problems like sensor networks or medical imaging, where different measurements of the same phenomenon are taken with different quality sensing (eg high or low radiation). In this context, learning the low-rank structure via PCA suffers from treating all data samples as if they are equally informative. I will discuss our theoretical results on weighted PCA. I will then present new algorithms for the non-convex probabilistic PCA formulation of this problem and a novel SDP relaxation. Bio: Laura Balzano is an associate professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, and of Statistics by courtesy, at the University of Michigan. She is recipient of the NSF Career Award, ARO Young Investigator Award, AFOSR Young Investigator Award, and faculty fellowships from Intel and 3M. She received the Vulcans Education Excellence Award at the University of Michigan. Her main research focus is on modeling with big, messy data — highly incomplete or corrupted data, uncalibrated data, and heterogeneous data — and its applications in a wide range of scientific problems. Her expertise is in statistical signal processing, matrix factorization, and optimization. Laura received a BS from Rice University, MS from the UCLA, and PhD from the University of Wisconsin in Electrical and Computer Engineering.”,https://events.umich.edu/event/86875,”Off Campus Location”,,Virtual,,”899 Seminar Series Graduate Industrial & Operations Engineering Industrial And Operations Engineering Michigan Engineering Undergraduate Students”,”U-M Industrial & Operations Engineering” 88720-21656969,”2021-12-02 15:30:00″,”2021-12-02 17:00:00″,”Astronomy Colloquium Series Presents:”,”Marta Bryan, University of California, Berkeley”,”Lecture / Discussion”,”Title and abstract coming soon”,https://events.umich.edu/event/88720,”Off Campus Location”,,Virtual,,”astronomy astrophysics physics”,”Department of Astronomy” 88602-21656103,”2021-12-02 15:30:00″,”2021-12-02 17:30:00″,”MMP Working Group Speaker: Wayne Wu”,”Wayne Wu (Carnegie Mellon)”,”Lecture / Discussion”,”Wayne Wu will give a talk for the Mind and Moral Psychology Working Group”,https://events.umich.edu/event/88602,”Off Campus Location”,,Virtual,,”Graduate Philosophy”,”Department of Philosophy” 85459-21626478,”2021-12-02 16:00:00″,”2021-12-02 18:00:00″,”EIHS Lecture: Recovery and Epistemicide: Ancient Mediterranean Limit Cases”,”Dan-el Padilla Peralta (Princeton University)”,”Lecture / Discussion”,”Format: This event will be held via Zoom webinar. Register here: https://myumi.ch/V75p9 Description: Pioneering advances in material culture studies over the past half-century and more sustained engagements with (some branches of) postcolonial theory have emboldened historians of the ancient Mediterranean to grant more and more space in their scholarship to the resistance strategies and survival tactics of imperially minoritized groups. At the root of this intensifying attachment to narratives of resistance is the belief that histories of the subaltern can be written; all we need to do is “read against the grain” of the literary sources, or avail ourselves of new frameworks for interpreting non-literary material evidence, in order to recover these histories. Organizing itself around the concept of epistemicide, my paper will reevaluate this historiographical tendency and propose some alternatives.

He is the author of Divine Institutions: Religions and Community in the Middle Roman Republic (Princeton University Press, 2020) and Undocumented: A Dominican Boy’s Odyssey from a Homeless Shelter to the Ivy League (Penguin Press, 2015); he is coeditor of Rome, Empire of Plunder: The Dynamics of Cultural Appropriation (Cambridge University Press 2017).

Kirk Patterson thinks that Japan has what it takes to become a marine tourism mecca, attracting people from around the world who want to swim, surf, kayak, sail, fish….or just enjoy leisurely strolls on beautiful beaches….and savor delicious Japanese seafood in the evening. Kirk Patterson had a 25-year management career in Tokyo, including cofounding Japan’s first investor relations company; being AIG’s Regional VP for Corporate Communications in Japan and Korea; and serving as president/dean of Temple University Japan. He took early retirement in 2007 to pursue his long-delayed desire to become an offshore sailor, returning to Canada and spending four years teaching himself how to sail. He then sailed to Hawaii (where he spent a year working as a Waikiki bartender) and then on to Japan, devoting three years to a full circumnavigation of the country (the first by a foreigner) and then another three years cruising western Japan. He swallowed the anchor two years ago and now, based in Fukuoka, operates Konpira Consulting, a marine-tourism company.

It helps us to confront and address some of the most pressing issues of our time. Art has the power to shift the way we see and understand the world around us, and the worlds within us. Free Your Mind: Art and Incarceration in Michigan invites us to consider these qualities of art, while also grappling with the carceral system and the many ways it affects the lives of all of us. Currently there are approximately 2.2 million people incarcerated in the United States, and in Michigan, there are roughly 33,000 residents currently serving time in the prison system. Working together with a coalition of more than a dozen organizations and Michigan State University units and departments, Free Your Mind explores the inner worlds of incarcerated individuals and the fundamental issues that shape conversations around incarceration today. The exhibition centers on four key topics of inquiry: Michigan’s length of sentencing and overcrowding in prisons; the impact of incarceration on women; youth incarceration; and the dangers of COVID-19. The exhibition features artists, poets, and storytellers of great achievement. The majority of these artists are either currently or formerly incarcerated. Their works on view invite us to consider the role art-making plays in prisons as a liberating force, and offer unique perspectives on the experience of incarceration. The works also invite us to approach the subject of incarceration with an open mind. Free Your Mind aims to cultivate a greater sense of empathy for those directly impacted by incarceration and an understanding that their growth as individuals is linked to the greater health of the society we all live in, together. Free Your Mind: Art and Incarceration in Michigan is organized by the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University and curated by Steven L. Bridges, Senior Curator and Director of Curatorial Affairs, and Janie Paul, Senior Curator and Cofounder, Annual Exhibitions of Art by Michigan Prisoners, a project of the Prison Creative Arts Project at the University of Michigan.

This inaugural program recognizes the creativity, rigor, and innovation of Michigan-based artists and collaboratives — and honors their role in inspiring the next generations of artists in our state. The call for work went out to artists across the state in March 2020. In July 2020, Envision jurors Carla Acevedo-Yates, Curator, MCA Chicago; Ken Aptekar (BFA ’73), Artist; and Loring Randolph (BFA ’04), Director, Frieze New York; gathered virtually to review the submissions. After evaluating 259 submissions from across the state, the jurors selected five finalists to receive a group exhibition at Stamps Gallery. On December 10, 2021, one finalist will be named the 2021 Envision Award recipient, receiving a cash prize. The exhibition will tour to different venues in Michigan, including the Crooked Tree Art Center in Traverse City.

The Role of Strategic Ignorance in Indonesian Agrarian Development”,”Jenny Goldstein, Assistant Professor, Cornell University”,”Lecture / Discussion”,”Free and open to the public. Register at https://myumi.ch/dOmrB The relationship between knowledge and power in agrarian development projects has been widely acknowledged, but what about the relationship between ignorance and power? Through analysis of Indonesia’s peatland development over the past three decades, this talk considers how state officials, scientists, and corporations have deployed ignorance strategically as a means to land access and control. Drawing on long-term fieldwork in Central Kalimantan, Indonesia, Professor Goldstein look specifically at an area called the Mega Rice Project, a peat swamp forest that was drained for rice production in the mid-1990s and has since undergone dramatic biophysical transformation as the peat burns and releases carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Since 2000, this area has been the site of various state and NGO interventions to repair the landscape, most of which have been deemed failures. She argues that through these peatland development projects, elite actors have generated passive and active ignorance in ways that serve to protect the developmental status quo. Jenny Goldstein is an assistant professor in the Department of Global Development at Cornell University. She has a Ph.D. in geography from UCLA and works across political ecology, critical development studies, and science and technology studies. She has been conducting qualitative fieldwork in Indonesia since 2010 on the political economy of socio-ecological land use change and the politics of climate change knowledge. Other research interests include the human health impacts of ecological change and the role of digital infrastructures in environmental governance. Her recent articles have been published in *Antipode*, *Environment and Planning E*, *Singapore Journal of Tropical Geography*, and *Geoforum*. She is also the co-editor of the forthcoming book *The Nature of Data: Infrastructures, Environments, Politics* (University of Nebraska Press, 2022) and is currently working on a book project about the role of ignorance and uncertainty in Indonesia’s peatland development and restoration. — If there is anything we can do to make this event accessible to you, please contact cseas@umich.edu.

No prior experience with meditation is required. *What will you learn?* The guided meditation practice involves three simple steps: relaxation, rejuvenation, and meditation. Relaxation brings your body to a calm, steady posture creating a stillness at the physical level, and prepares the mind for meditation. We follow this with a rejuvenation method to detox the mind to let go of stress and complex emotions, and will leave you feeling light and refreshed. Lastly, learning to meditate by being mindful of your heart will connect you with yourself by listening to your heart’s voice. *Why Meditate?* While physical fitness keeps our bodies in shape, meditation is an exercise for the mind and mental wellness. In addition to the measurable benefits mentally and physically, many people benefit from an unquantifiable inner poise and harmony. *Event Details* Heartfulness Guided Meditation Fridays from 12-1pm ET (except during university season days / holidays) Join the Zoom Meeting: https://umich.zoom.us/j/94465693508 Meeting ID: 944 6569 3508 Register to receive Passcode (see “Related links”) This wellness program is coordinated by ITS Teaching & Learning and provided at no cost by heartfulness.org.”,https://events.umich.edu/event/88544,”Off Campus Location”,,Virtual,,”Free Health & Wellness Meditation Self-care Well-being”,”Information and Technology Services (ITS)” 84394-21624977,”2021-12-03 12:00:00″,”2021-12-03 13:30:00″,”LUNCH & LEARN: CAREER TALKS — Mike Miller, Stripe”,,”Workshop / Seminar”,”Discover and develop your personal career interests and acquire professional development skills through seminars and conversations with alumni of U-M Industrial and Operations Engineering.

One method to assess and better understand the Egyptian concept of gender is through the dress of the individuals. Dress has long been understood as a key expression of identity, especially gender norms. This is especially true since dress is often the first layer of an individual’s identity experienced in social interactions—be it between two individuals meeting for the first time or a modern viewer of a tomb scene. Through an investigation of a few case studies, I will argue that there is no single masculinity for the New Kingdom elite male. As I will show, we can see multiple, overlapping identities being depicted. The contexts in which the tomb owner either dons a kilt or is enrobed in a tunic differs depending on scene type and, more importantly, the type of masculinity wishing to be expressed. This presentation will explore the juxtaposition of both of these iterations of masculinity and their function in elite male identity formation and negotiation.”,https://events.umich.edu/event/89342,”Off Campus Location”,,Virtual,,”Anthropology Archaeology”,”Museum of Anthropological Archaeology Kelsey Museum of Archaeology Department of Anthropology Interdepartmental Program in Classical Art and Archaeology Kelsey Museum of Archaeology Lectures” 89348-21662067,”2021-12-03 12:00:00″,”2021-12-03 13:00:00″,”Museums at Noon”,”Natural History Collections and Pandemic Preparedness”,”Lecture / Discussion”,”In this session, Cody Thompson and Kendra Phelps will discuss their article, “Preserve a Voucher Specimen!

Scholarship has productively combined analysis of medieval literary texts with modern queer theory – yet, too often, questions of gender are explored almost exclusively through a prism of sexuality, rather than gender identity. This volume moves beyond such limitations, foregrounding the richness of hagiography as a genre integrally resistant to limiting binaristic categories, including rigid gender binaries. The collection showcases scholarship by emerging trans and genderqueer authors, as well as the work of established researchers. Working at the vanguard of historical trans studies, these scholars demonstrate the vital and vitally political nature of their work as medievalists. Trans and Genderqueer Subjects in Medieval Hagiography enables the re-creation of a lineage linking modern trans and genderqueer individuals to their medieval ancestors, providing models of queer identity where much scholarship has insisted there were none, and re-establishing the place of non-normative gender in history. This event is part of IRWG’s Gender: New Works, New Questions series, which spotlights recent publications by U-M faculty members and allows for deeper discussion by an interdisciplinary panel.

Perhaps one of the most dramatic landscape changes during the period was the inundation of the Sunda Shelf which resulted in the modern configuration of Island Southeast Asia (ISEA). Investigations in the region have provided information on how ancient foraging communities responded to these changes. In this talk, results of the analyses of faunal assemblages from sites in Java are presented. The results are compared to those obtained from sites in Sri Lanka. In the Javanese sites, a shift from hunting large-bodied ungulates during the Late Pleistocene to targeting small and intermediate, forest-adapted mammals following the onset of the Holocene was observed. This is in contrast to Sri Lankan sites, where there was targeted hunting of small arboreal taxa as early as ca. 50,000 years ago. The results of the studies provide unique insights on subsistence strategies of prehistoric foraging communities and the environment they encountered in South/Southeast Asia during a key period in human history.”” https://umich.zoom.us/j/96568104186″,https://events.umich.edu/event/89177,”Off Campus Location”,https://umich.zoom.us/j/96568104186,Virtual,,”AEM Featured Anthropology”,”Department of Anthropology Museum of Anthropological Archaeology” 87229-21640551,”2021-12-03 15:00:00″,”2021-12-03 16:00:00″,”SoConDi Discussion Group”,,”Lecture / Discussion”,”The SoConDi group is both a discussion platform and a study group for students and faculty members who are interested in sociolinguistics, language contact, discourse analysis and related disciplines including linguistic anthropology.

To meet the goal of limiting global warming to less than 1.5 degrees Celsius calls for storing hundreds of billion tons of CO2 in aquifers. Stored CO2 will partially dissolve into water and acidify the water. The acidified water will, in turn, react with minerals strongly. To predict the fate of stored CO2 thousands or tens of thousands of years after injection, therefore, needs an understanding of the chemical kinetics of the geochemical reactions at the most fundamental level. In recent years, my students, collaborators, and I have developed an innovative isotope tracer method and have broken new ground in near-equilibrium reaction kinetics, which fill in a critical knowledge gap relevant to CO2 storage. This presentation will give an overview of geological carbon sequestration efforts and an application of geochemical kinetics to the Sleipner Project in Norway, the world’s first industrial-scale CO2 storage project. The overlap between basic science and the societal need for climate change mitigation becomes clear through this example.”,https://events.umich.edu/event/83661,”Off Campus Location”,,Virtual,,Lecture,”Earth and Environmental Sciences” 85618-21627795,”2021-12-03 16:30:00″,”2021-12-03 18:00:00″,”CSAS Thomas R. Trautmann Honorary Lecture | (Indian) Animals Are Good to Think With”,”Stephanie Jamison, Department of Asian Languages & Cultures, UCLA”,”Livestream / Virtual”,”Ancient and medieval Indian literature, both religious and secular, is saturated with animals—animal fables, animal transformations, animals as instructors or instructive exempla, animals reflecting human characteristics in a mirror that is not always flattering to the humans so reflected. Much of the animal lore of the Classical period is familiar to most people with even a passing interest in India, but this talk will explore some lesser known examples, especially from the earlier, Vedic period. It will highlight the accuracy of the field observation of animal physiology and behavior and the clever application of this field observation to the particulars in the human sphere. Among the topics treated will be frog mating, hyena physiology, and rhinoceros toes. Stephanie Jamison received her PhD in Linguistics from Yale University in 1977, specializing in historical and Indo-European linguistics. Since 2002 she has been Professor (Distinguished Professor 2014) of Asian Languages and Cultures and of Indo-European Studies at the University of California, Los Angeles. She publishes widely in Indo-Iranian and Indo-European linguistics, poetics, ritual, mythology, and law, with special focus on Vedic Sanskrit.

It helps us to confront and address some of the most pressing issues of our time. Art has the power to shift the way we see and understand the world around us, and the worlds within us. Free Your Mind: Art and Incarceration in Michigan invites us to consider these qualities of art, while also grappling with the carceral system and the many ways it affects the lives of all of us. Currently there are approximately 2.2 million people incarcerated in the United States, and in Michigan, there are roughly 33,000 residents currently serving time in the prison system. Working together with a coalition of more than a dozen organizations and Michigan State University units and departments, Free Your Mind explores the inner worlds of incarcerated individuals and the fundamental issues that shape conversations around incarceration today. The exhibition centers on four key topics of inquiry: Michigan’s length of sentencing and overcrowding in prisons; the impact of incarceration on women; youth incarceration; and the dangers of COVID-19. The exhibition features artists, poets, and storytellers of great achievement. The majority of these artists are either currently or formerly incarcerated. Their works on view invite us to consider the role art-making plays in prisons as a liberating force, and offer unique perspectives on the experience of incarceration. The works also invite us to approach the subject of incarceration with an open mind. Free Your Mind aims to cultivate a greater sense of empathy for those directly impacted by incarceration and an understanding that their growth as individuals is linked to the greater health of the society we all live in, together. Free Your Mind: Art and Incarceration in Michigan is organized by the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University and curated by Steven L.

This inaugural program recognizes the creativity, rigor, and innovation of Michigan-based artists and collaboratives — and honors their role in inspiring the next generations of artists in our state. The call for work went out to artists across the state in March 2020. In July 2020, Envision jurors Carla Acevedo-Yates, Curator, MCA Chicago; Ken Aptekar (BFA ’73), Artist; and Loring Randolph (BFA ’04), Director, Frieze New York; gathered virtually to review the submissions. After evaluating 259 submissions from across the state, the jurors selected five finalists to receive a group exhibition at Stamps Gallery. On December 10, 2021, one finalist will be named the 2021 Envision Award recipient, receiving a cash prize. The exhibition will tour to different venues in Michigan, including the Crooked Tree Art Center in Traverse City.

He’s a virtuoso to beat the band! Andy entertains both the eye and the ear with his use of altered tunings, tapping, partial capos, percussive hits, and with his signature two-handed technique. His guitar performance videos have received hundreds of millions of views on the Internet, and at one point he held the top three positions on YouTube’s list of top-rated videos of all time. After starting out on electric guitar, Andy switched as a teen to acoustic and began studying the music of Michael Hedges, Don Ross, Billy McLaughlin, and Preston Reed. To this day he still cites those four musicians as primary influences. Master craftsman and innovator at the same time, Andy McKee is a virtuoso for our time, and his live shows are absolutely legendary. The unfolding era of the music business has provided many fresh opportunities for artists to foster direct and meaningful connections with new audiences around the globe. Trevor Gordon Hall is a powerful emerging voice, albeit without words to his music, showing that combining honest heart felt compositions with precise technical virtuosity do not sideline an artist in today’s world but can launch a wider reach than ever before. With an exploding presence on streaming services like Spotify, YouTube etc., a tour calendar that has taken him all over the world, it’s safe to say that this is a new era for artists like Trevor to engage listeners from all cultures, languages, genres, and backgrounds.”,https://events.umich.edu/event/84384,”Off Campus Location”,,”The Ark, 316 S.

We hypothesize that one feature of formal schooling—engaging in effortful thinking for sustained periods—could increase sustained attention: the ability to maintain focus over time. To motivate this idea, we document that globally and in the US, the poor exhibit worse sustained attention than the rich across a variety of field behaviors; they also attend schools that are less likely to require them to engage in concentration. We test our hypothesis using a field experiment with 1,650 low-income Indian primary school students. We assign students to engage in cognitive activity for sustained periods during the school day, using either math content (mimicking good schooling) or non-academic content (providing a pure test of our mechanism). Each approach markedly improves sustained attention across disparate domains: academics, listening, IQ tests, and traditional psychology measures. Moreover, the treatments increase students’ regular school performance in Hindi, English, and math. This indicates that simply spending time in effortful thinking—without learning any subject content—substantively improves traditional measures of human capital. Our findings support a broader view of how schooling shapes general human capital, and suggest that worse environments may disadvantage poor children by hampering the development of core cognitive capacity.”,https://events.umich.edu/event/87358,”Off Campus Location”,,Virtual,,”Economics seminar”,”Department of Economics Social, Behavioral, and Experimental Economics (SBEE)” 89099-21660478,”2021-12-06 12:00:00″,”2021-12-06 13:30:00″,”DSI & DISCO Network Book Talk | Discriminating Data: Wendy Chun in Conversation with Lisa Nakamura”,”Wendy Chun, School of Communication, Simon Fraser University”,”Livestream / Virtual”,”In Discriminating Data, Wendy Hui Kyong Chun reveals how polarization is a goal—not an error—within big data and machine learning. These methods, she argues, encode segregation, eugenics, and identity politics through their default assumptions and conditions. Correlation, which grounds big data’s predictive potential, stems from twentieth-century eugenic attempts to “breed” a better future. Recommender systems foster angry clusters of sameness through homophily. Users are “trained” to become authentically predictable via a politics and technology of recognition. Machine learning and data analytics thus seek to disrupt the future by making disruption impossible.

He hasn’t moved to LA or Nashville; he’s stayed in the cold grey north of Minnesota, because that’s his home. Charlie makes his Smithsonian Folkways Recordings debut with ‘Last of The Better Days Ahead’, out worldwide July 30, 2021. Dead Horses isn’t a band in the conventional sense. Rather, it’s an intimate, folk-inspired conversation between two close friends. At its core, the participants are guitarist/singer Sarah Vos and bassist Daniel Wolff. Dead Horses weave together a vibrant patchwork of classic and contemporary influences that span trad roots, indie- folk, and other experimental musical idioms. Through it all, the union of Sarah’s emotive songwriting with Dan’s intrepid bass playing transcends the singer-songwriter-with-backup-musicians paradigm.”,https://events.umich.edu/event/87182,”Off Campus Location”,,”The Ark, 316 S.

ABSTRACT: Aging involves progressive accumulation of cellular-level changes that drive loss of resilience and increased vulnerability in tissues and organ systems, leading to disease, disability, and death. The geroscience hypothesis proposes that intervention to slow or reverse accumulation of these changes can delay or prevent chronic disease and extend healthy lifespan. Animal experiments establish proof of concept for geroscience. Now, new methods to quantify the progress and pace of biological aging are opening frontiers for human translation. Quantifications of biological aging have potential to advance understanding of how genes and environments shape health across the lifespan and to guide efforts devise interventions that modify processes of aging with the goal of preventing disease. The talk will review progress in the field, introduce a new method to quantify the pace of biological aging from DNA methylation, DunedinPACE, and present results from the CALERIE randomized controlled trial, which tested effects of 2 years of calorie restriction in healthy, non-obese humans.

Today, managers must navigate the effects of these past actions when making decisions about marsh hydrology and drainage that impact human health, ecosystem services, and marsh sustainability. Managers must also consider how stressors such as sea-level rise impact marshes. A team of scientists including staff from the Waquoit Bay Reserve in Massachusetts helped to address this challenge by working iteratively with coastal managers and restoration practitioners to develop a decision support tool for marsh hydrology management strategies that promote sustainability and continued delivery of valuable ecosystem services under future sea level rise scenarios.

A cross-pollination of numerous influences, including cabaret, spaghetti Westerns, norteño, punk, and the immigrant dance music of Eastern Europe, Colorado-based quartet DeVotchKa, formed in Denver by multi-instrumentalists Nick Urata (vocals, guitar, trumpet), Tom Hagerman (violin, accordion), Jeanie Schroder (sousaphone, bass) and percussionist Shawn King, emerged as unlikely indie heroes in the mid-2000s infusing modern indie music with a global flavor. They found widespread success in 2006 with their Grammy-nominated soundtrack to the hit indie film Little Miss Sunshine. Signing with revered indie, Anti-, the band delivered A Mad and Faithful Telling in early 2008, reaching the number nine slot on the Billboard Heatseekers chart. A lengthy world tour followed, including stops at major festivals like Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, and Bumbershoot. After doing more soundtrack work, this time for the 2009 comedy I Love You Phillip Morris, the group returned to the studio for 2011’s moody and triumphant 100 Lovers. Embarking on another world tour, they collaborated with the Colorado Symphony on the 2012 concert album Live with the Colorado Symphony. Over the next several years, Urata became increasingly involved in his own film composition career, scoring movies like Crazy Stupid Love, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, Paddington, and the Netflix series A Series of Unfortunate Events. Meanwhile, the band regrouped for a lengthy recording session, eventually returning in 2018 with their sixth album, This Night Falls Forever, this time via Concord Records.

Since their arrival on the scene in 2015, Nefesh Mountain has been hailed as one of today’s formative boundary pushing Bluegrass/Americana bands. They’re among the first to truly give voice and openly represent Jewish American culture, tradition, values and spirituality in the world of American roots music. In a testament to the unbridled imagination and extraordinary grace of their musicianship, each track on Songs for the Sparrows ineffably evokes the sensation of roaming through the unknown. True to the album’s spirit of loving inclusivity, Lindberg and Zasloff, have created an elegantly wayward sound by melding elements of everything from Americana and Appalachian bluegrass to Celtic folk and Eastern European music. Not only a reflection of their vast musical knowledge, that open-hearted embracing of so many eclectic genres also speaks to the joyful curiosity that animates every aspect of their artistry.”,https://events.umich.edu/event/85221,”Off Campus Location”,,”The Ark, 316 S.

It helps us to confront and address some of the most pressing issues of our time. Art has the power to shift the way we see and understand the world around us, and the worlds within us. Free Your Mind: Art and Incarceration in Michigan invites us to consider these qualities of art, while also grappling with the carceral system and the many ways it affects the lives of all of us. Currently there are approximately 2.2 million people incarcerated in the United States, and in Michigan, there are roughly 33,000 residents currently serving time in the prison system. Working together with a coalition of more than a dozen organizations and Michigan State University units and departments, Free Your Mind explores the inner worlds of incarcerated individuals and the fundamental issues that shape conversations around incarceration today. The exhibition centers on four key topics of inquiry: Michigan’s length of sentencing and overcrowding in prisons; the impact of incarceration on women; youth incarceration; and the dangers of COVID-19. The exhibition features artists, poets, and storytellers of great achievement. The majority of these artists are either currently or formerly incarcerated. Their works on view invite us to consider the role art-making plays in prisons as a liberating force, and offer unique perspectives on the experience of incarceration. The works also invite us to approach the subject of incarceration with an open mind. Free Your Mind aims to cultivate a greater sense of empathy for those directly impacted by incarceration and an understanding that their growth as individuals is linked to the greater health of the society we all live in, together. Free Your Mind: Art and Incarceration in Michigan is organized by the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University and curated by Steven L. Bridges, Senior Curator and Director of Curatorial Affairs, and Janie Paul, Senior Curator and Cofounder, Annual Exhibitions of Art by Michigan Prisoners, a project of the Prison Creative Arts Project at the University of Michigan.

Sections 508 (covering use of accessible information and communication technology) and 501(addressing reasonable accommodation) of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 compliance standards have been around for a long time—but the survey research industry has often taken the path providing reasonable (non-technological) accommodations for study participants. These often involve alternate modes of data collection, but rarely provide a truly equitable solution for study participation. If a web-based survey is not compliant with assistive technologies, the participant may be offered the option of completing a survey with an interviewer. Survey methodologists know well that introducing a live human interaction may change how participants respond—especially if the study involves sensitive topics. Imagine a workplace survey on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion where a sight-impaired employee is asked to answer questions about how they are treated in their workplace, but they are required to answer these questions through an interviewer, and not privately via a website. Not only is this request not equitable for the employee (fully sighted employees get to respond more privately), it can also bias the results if the participant is not honest about the struggle for fear of receiving backlash from their employer if the interviewer passed along their frustrations. In the act of being denied equitable participation, future decisions will then be made on potentially faulty results about the experience of such people. In this presentation, I will focus on developing an equitable research design, partially through considering the overall study—not just the technology itself. But we will also share experiences in the development of a highly accessible web-based survey that is compliant with screen reading technology (screen readers, mouse input grids, voice, keyboard navigation, etc.). I will present experimental, anecdotal, and descriptive experiences with accessible web-based surveys and research designs in higher education student, faculty, and staff surveys conducted on the topic of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. Our results will be directly relevant for inclusion and equity in these settings as well as some surprising unintended positive consequences of some of these design decisions. Lastly, I will also share some next steps for where the field may go in continuing to improve in these areas.”,https://events.umich.edu/event/86452,”Off Campus Location”,,Virtual,,”Accessibility Data Data Curation Data Science Disability Free Humanities Inclusion Lecture Population Studies Center Research Social Sciences Survey Research Webinar”,”Institute for Social Research” 40967-21631281,”2021-12-08 12:00:00″,”2021-12-08 12:30:00″,”North Campus Mindfulness Meditation Drop-In (Online)”,,Well-being,”Take a moment to create some space to breathe and invite a sense of calm into your day.

In hundreds of separate incidents, ordinary people robbed their Jewish neighbors with impunity, burned down their houses, ripped apart their Torah scrolls, sexually assaulted them, and killed them. Largely forgotten today, these pogroms—ethnic riots—dominated headlines and international affairs in their time. Aid workers warned that six million Jews were in danger of complete extermination. Twenty years later, these dire predictions would come true. Jeffrey Veidlinger is Joseph Brodsky Collegiate Professor of History and Judaic Studies at the University of Michigan.

RSVP here: https://myumi.ch/r8zv7 Mindfulness Meditation is a skill that can be learned and when practiced has the power to enhance a sense of wellbeing, focus, and interconnectedness. As we all continue to navigate uncertainty and challenges that are inherent in the act of being human, we benefit from and are grateful for diverse cultures and traditions across the globe. Collectively they have passed on a wide variety of contemplative practices that encourage reflection, silence, and centering into the present moment to help us cope and better respond. Engaging in contemplative practices support the individual, by cultivating a sense of awareness and well-being, and benefit society by enhancing one’s capacity to create connection and community, and to become an agent of positive social change. There are many forms of contemplative practices, including meditation. Mindfulness meditation is one form aimed to help focus our awareness on the present moment as it unfolds, moment to moment, without judgment. Research on mindfulness continues to find a wide range of benefits. In short, Mindfulness may be viewed as cognitive training that bolsters our ability to handle stress, poor mood, and threat. It also increases our capacity to focus our attention on what is most important to us and to be more compassionate to ourselves and to others. On Wednesdays from 12:15 – 12:45 pm, we come together in community to practice this skill in an open and supportive virtual space. Whether you are new to mindfulness meditation or are an experienced practitioner each session is designed to offer guidance and support to assist you. Join this supportive community and experience the gift of present moment awareness.”,https://events.umich.edu/event/85277,”Off Campus Location”,,Virtual,,”Free Mindfulness Virtual Well-being Wellness Work-life Balance”,CEW+ 89425-21663058,”2021-12-08 13:00:00″,”2021-12-08 15:30:00″,”A Gentle Introduction to ESRI StoryMaps”,”Do you have a story to tell?
