Lecture/Seminar Simulating human-environment interactions 2017-03-20 15:30:00
Description

Dr. Chris Bone
Assistant Professor, Geography Department, University of Oregon

Climate change and natural resource management have produced unprecedented challenges to our planet’s terrestrial and aquatic environments. These challenges call for interdisciplinary science approaches that aim to understand the multi-scale interactions and feedbacks between social and ecological systems. Simulation modeling offers a platform for facilitating this form of interdisciplinary science by engaging diverse perspectives in the creation of conceptual and computation representations of socio-ecological systems, and by providing tools for proposing and evaluating potential alternative futures under different environmental management scenarios. In this research talk, I will explore the use of simulation modeling as an interdisciplinary methodology, present results from an interdisciplinary project on large scale forest disturbance, and describe a how geographers are in a position to lead the way forward in pursuing a ‘model thinking’ approach for addressing the world’s environmental challenges.

Lecture/Seminar ANTH Grad Colloquium: Not Quite Hollywood: Participatory Ethnographic Film, Local Aesthetics, No Budget 2017-03-20 11:30:00
Description

GRADUATE COLLOQUIUM DEPARTMENT OF ANTHROPOLOGY

Not Quite Hollywood: Participatory Ethnographic Film, Local Aesthetics, No Budget

James B. Waldram, PhD, FRSC
Professor, Department of Archaeology and Anthropology

Monday, March 20th, 2017
11:30 am – 12:50 pm
Cornett Building, Room A225

Documentary film is fast becoming a powerful means to communicate local issues to broader audiences of policy makers and planners. Participatory ethnographic film - where the participants and film-maker work collaboratively to tell their story - often requires significant compromises in film-making due to budgetary and logistical issues. Further, when local aesthetics are taken into consideration, the evaluation of the final product is often based on criteria quite different from that of the for-profit and cinematic-distribution types of films currently dominating ethnographic film festivals. This presentation documents the film-making process with a group of Q'eqchi' Maya healers as it moves from conception to "world premiere" in a rustic, thatch-roofed bar in southern Belize. Ultimately, the main criteria of evaluation used by the healers who participated, who authorized its public distribution, was simply, did we get it right?

EVERYONE WELCOME.
