Lecture/Seminar The Challenge of Improving Urban Health Equity Globally 2013-03-21 19:30:00
Description

Throughout the 20th and 21st centuries, our increasingly urban world has seen significant improvements in indicators of health and life expectancy. However there are marked geo-spatial, socio-economic and socio-cultural differences in rates of communicable and non-communicable diseases and premature mortality. In all countries, rich and poor, there is an unequal distribution of health both within countries (the urban-rural divide) and within cities (the social gradient).

Urban management is a pressing health issue for countries and cities at all stages of economic development - following the projected trajectory of urban growth, city populations in all countries will age, the triple threat of communicable and non-communicable diseases, and accidents, injuries, road accidents, violence and crime will grow, there will be more urban sprawl and greater numbers of people living in poverty, slums and squatter settlements.

This presentation will draw on the work of the Global Research Network on Urban Health Equity - GRNUHE – established by the Rockefeller Foundation to bring to the forefront the evidence and argument for urgent action in key societal and environmental factors including governance, urban design, social infrastructure and climate change – done in such a way as to improve the health premium from urbanization and ensure its fair distribution.

Lecture/Seminar Distinguished Lecture in Islam-Representations of Muslim Women: Image and Reality 2013-03-21 19:00:00
Description

Distinguished Lecture in Islam
Representations of Muslim Women: Image and Reality
Zayn R. Kassam, Department of Religious Studies, Pomona College, Claremont, CA

Muslim women are frequently depicted by Western media in images and stories that cast Islamic societies, and Muslim men in particular, in a negative light. Such gendered representations have been used to justify interventions against Muslim societies while also contributing to Islamophobic policies at home. In contrast, we might ask, What are the realities some Muslim women face, and what are they doing to address them?

Zayn Kassam is an historian of Islam and an international lecturer on gender relations in Muslim societies. She is the author and editor of numerous articles and books including Women and Islam (Praeger, 2010) and the forthcoming For What Sin Was She Slain? A Muslim Feminist Theology. Dr. Kassam holds a PhD in the history of religions from McGill University.

Film "Holy Motors" 2013-03-21 19:00:00
Description

Director: Léos Carax   

France, 2012, 115 min; French with subtitles

“ELECTRIFYING!” –Washington Post

“EXHILARATING!” –Time

“MESMERIZING!” –Slate

One of the grand cinematic eruptions of the year. Nothing makes ''sense'' in this crazy-beautiful reverie about movies, love, the love of movies, and the inevitability of human melancholy by the perpetually mysterious French filmmaker Léos Carax (The Lovers on the Bridge). The rubbery, indispensable Denis Lavant (Beau Travail) plays Monsieur Oscar, a man whose job — or is it a mission? — is to transform himself over and over in the course of a day: beggar lady, acrobat, thug, and more. Driven around in a long white limo (by gorgeous seventysomething Edith Scob), this professional shape-shifter becomes a kind of excavator of souls. –Entertainment Weekly

Lecture/Seminar Sharon Friel "Power, Money and Resources: Major Drivers of Global Health Inequalities" 2013-03-21 10:00:00
Description

Sharon Friel is Professor of Health Equity at the National Centre for Epidemiology and Public Health, The Australian National University.

Between 2005 and 2008 she was the Head of the Scientific Secretariat (UCL) for the World Health Organization’s Global Commission on Social Determinants of Health. The Commission's final report noted that, "Social injustice is killing people on a grand scale." One of its three overarching recommendations was that we need to "tackle the inequitable distribution of power, money, and resources." This will be the main focus of Professor Friel's session.

Lecture/Seminar Language, dialect, and diglossia in Quebec and Picardie - Dr. Julie Auger 2013-03-21 16:30:00
Description

Lansdowne Lecture presented by the Department of French

 

Lecturer: Dr. Julie Auger, Department of French and Italian, Indiana University

 

L'pére à Marie i croét toute 'Mary's father believes everything'. This sentence could be uttered by a Québécois speaker or a speaker of Picard. While this highlights how similar the two linguistic varieties are, I would like to argue that the two speakers hold very different views of such sentences and that their views reflect the social reality of their respective communities. Specifically, I will argue that such differences result in recognizing Picard as a distinct language with its own norm but considering Québec French as a variety of French.

This presentation will compare the linguistic varieties used in the two locations and contrast the approaches adopted by Québec and Picardie in dealing with varieties that differ from Standard French.
