LECTURE | Political Ethnography with a Gender Lens in the Latvian Parliament

This lecture is part of the Talking Gender in the EU lecture series, a 4-part lecture series covering gender politics in Poland, Latvia, France, and the European Parliament.   The European Union has set impressive standards on gender equality, providing legal frameworks for equal pay, investing in work/life balance and childcare, and allowing for positive action to advance equal treatment of women across member states. At the same time, Europe witnesses considerable backlash from anti-gender activists and rightwing reactionary movements, calling into question gender equality as a core norm of European democracies.

Analytical Chemistry Seminar: Dr. Brian Searle

Robust proteomic strategies to detect viral infection in tumors Brian Searle, PhD - Translational Research Fellow, Institute for Systems Biology Host: Matt Bush   Infections cause 15% of cancers worldwide, with HPV, Hepatitis B, and Hepatitis C being the leading viral causes. Two human herpes viruses, EBV and HHV-8, are known to cause cancer, and a third, human cytomegalovirus (HCMV), has been reported in multiple brain tumor types, including glioblastomas. However, despite confirmatory studies by many different labs, the relationship between HCMV and cancer has remained controversial, in part due to the absence of any HCMV DNA or RNA sequences in large cancer sequencing databases such as the TCGA. In this talk we show two proteomics applications of a new mass spectrometry strategy using data independent acquisition (DIA) to detect low levels of infection in human tissue. First, coupling DIA with gas-phase fractionation, we create high-resolution “digital maps” of tumors that can be iteratively mined… Online Meeting Link: https://zoom.us/j/95361636778?pwd=ejdITlN4UmMzeFM1MEljZ2RLYmJJZz09.

MSE Seminar: Adventures with Metal Coordination Bonds to Manipulate Polymer Mechanical Properties

Abstract: Non-covalent cross-linking interactions can be used to tailor stiffness and strength of linear polymers while enabling interesting features like self-healing, energy dissipation, and extended stretching capability. Metallopolymers in particular are highly customizable since in addition to normal polymer control knobs such as monomer selection, molecular weight and architecture, metallopolymers can be differentiated by the type of metal cation, ligand chemistry on the polymer, and the addition of non-covalently bonded ligands. In this talk I will present key aspects of my group’s work towards tailoring otherwise linear polymers with metal cation-based crosslinks. Our goal throughout is to explicitly connect the macroscale observed mechanical properties to the mechanics and dynamics of the metal cation-based crosslinks. Consequently, this work spans many approaches including synthesis, experiments, rheological modeling, and density functional theory. I will also share brief highlights from ongoing mat… Event types: Lectures/Seminars. Monday, March 1, 2021, 3:30 PM – 4:20 PM. For more info visit mse.washington.edu.

Hyakunin isshu and the world of Japanese medieval poetry by Paul Atkins

Hyakunin isshu (One Hundred Poems by One Hundred Poets) is the most famous collection of poetry in Japan. It has been read, discussed, recited, memorized, copied, illustrated, and parodied for centuries and has been the subject of more than one series of manga and anime. Most people encounter it for the first time through a game in which players listen as a reader recites verses in random order and compete to be the first to snatch the card bearing the text of the corresponding poem. Widely believed to have been compiled by the poet and courtier Fujiwara no Teika (1162-1241), Hyakunin isshu has educated and delighted many generations of readers as a model of poetic composition and an introduction to the fascinating world of waka, classical Japanese poetry. In this talk, Paul Atkins will provide an introduction to the content, structure, and history of this very influential anthology, with special attention to its mysterious origins in medieval Japan.

Perhaps Seattle is one of the only cities in the world where such an innovative idea could find both the financial backing and the consumer interest, and the founders of Atomo! Molecular Coffee know it. With their new 12,000 square foot roastery just blocks away from the Starbucks’ SODO headquarters, their innovative molecular technology uses upcycled ingredients (think sunflower seed husks, watermelon seeds, acacia gum) that would have otherwise gone to waste to reverse engineer a perfectly consistent--and more sustainable--cup of coffee. It is probably no coincidence that our two Atomo! panelists met through the Foster School of Business entrepreneurship ecosystem at exactly the right time. We will speak to Atomo! CEO and founder and MS in Entrepreneurship mentor Andy Kleitsch and Atomo! Marketing Director and MS in Entrepreneurship ’19 alumna Cara LeDuc about how the idea for the company was sparked, the noble principle behind… Event types: Conferences. Workshops.

Imagining Trans Futures: Cameron Awkward-Rich on ‘Looking for Pauli (In Black Trans Time)'

Pauli Murray has increasingly come to be regarded as a figure in/for a black trans past. While such recovery projects often hinge on questions about transness—and, in particular, whether it is possible to locate it in the past—this talk hinges on about pastness, about temporality, history, time. As a meditation on both the writing of my 2019 poetry collection Dispatch and the life/writing of the many-faced Murray, my remarks will be something of an experiment in answering the question: what does it mean to write a black trans past? Cameron Awkward-Rich is a poet and scholar of transgender theory/cultural production. He is the author of two collections of poetry -- Sympathetic Little Monster (2016) and Dispatch (2019)- - and his critical writing has been published in Signs, Transgender Studies Quarterly, American Quarterly and elsewhere. His work has been supported by fellowships from Cave Canem; Duke University's program in Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies; and the American Council of Learned… Event types: Meetings.

Psychology SP & Dev Seminar with Sa-Kiera Hudson, PhD

Sa-Kiera Hudson, PhD Postdoctoral Scholar, Yale University, The Connection between Preferences for Hierarchy and Empathic and Counter-Empathic Emotions Social dominance orientation, or SDO, measures the extent to which people desire and promote group-based inequality and is associated with prejudicial attitudes as well as positively related to endorsing policies and behaviors that support inequality. Despite the wealth of research on the attitudinal and behavioral implications of having higher levels of SDO, there is relatively little work concerning the relationship between SDO and emotions. This project focuses specifically on the connection between SDO and experiencing empathic and counter-empathic emotions, as well as with support for intergroup helping and harming, across a total of 6 studies (N = 2583). First, we provide evidence that SDO is negatively associated with feeling empathy for others and positively associated with feeling counter-empathy, and that competitive group settings exacerbated… Event types: Lectures/Seminars.

Eggstraordinary Objects: Ostrich eggs as luxury items in the ancient Mediterranean

Dr. Tamar Hodos, University of Bristol March 6, 2021 10AM Pacific Time (via Zoom) Free and open to the public Decorated ostrich eggs were traded as luxury items from the Middle East to the western Mediterranean during the second and first millennia BCE. The eggs were engraved, painted, and occasionally embellished with ivory, precious metals and faience fittings. While archaeologists note their presence as unusual vessels in funerary and dedicatory contexts, little is known about how or from where they were sourced, decorated and traded. An ongoing project between researchers at Bristol University and the British Museum has established techniques to identify where the eggs originated and how they were decorated. This talk shares the results of our study, revealing the complexity of the production, trade, and economic and social values of luxury organic items between competing cultures of the ancient Mediterranean world.

"Japanese Literature in an Age of Rising Seas" with Christine Marran, University of Minnesota

How do environmental phenomena associated with climate change inherently test the capacities of particular modes of writing and literary analysis? Author Amitav Ghosh has claimed that the imaginary of the modern realist novel is incompatible with the representation of the dynamism of the more-than-human world. Given that the novelistic form in question has traveled quite broadly, we want to examine whether this argument works for other places. Does Ghosh’s claim also work for the Japanese modern novel? Did the modern novel, in its manifestation in Japan, also prove to have had substantive impact on how Japanese readers saw the environment--enough to warrant the claim that the novel there produced “deranged” ways of thinking and being that have eventually contributed to climate change? Do these novelistic formulations depend on the land and geography from which they emerge? Marran will address these questions in her analysis of modern Japanese literature. Christine L. Marran is professor of Japanese… Event types: Lectures/Seminars. Event sponsors: UW Japan Studies Program To access event, please register.  Registrants will receive the login information.

In Conversation with Mana Kia

We will engage Prof. Mana Kia in conversation about Persianate Selves, her first book. Persianate Selves poses a simple question: what did it mean to be Persian before nationalism? In order to address this question, Kia patiently and methodically reads a variety of seventeenth and eighteenth-century Persian-language texts—histories, travelogues, biographical dictionaries— composed and circulated in a cultural geography that included and far surpassed modern-day Iran. This study interrogates concepts that today we have learned to take for granted: lineage, place, homeland, and origin. To what extent has Persianate Selves reset our conceptual framings of this crucial historical period? What paths does it envision for the future of Iranian Studies as a field? Please join us!
