Graduate College Brown Bag Lecture - “Guerillas in the Knit: Guerilla Knitters, Yarn Bombing, and Craftivism in Contemporary North America”

Graduate College Brown Bag Lecture - “Guerillas in the Knit: Guerilla Knitters, Yarn Bombing, and Craftivism in Contemporary North America”

Wednesday, April 2, 2014 - 12:00 pm to 12:50 pm

Marybeth Stalp, associate professor, Department of Sociology, Anthropology, and Criminology, and Therèsa M. Winge, assistant professor of apparel and textile design, Michigan State University, will present “Guerilla Knitters, Yarn Bombing, and Craftivism in Contemporary North America”

Sending knitted uteri to the US Congress. Angering the US Olympic committee. Vandalizing public spaces. Twisting everyday objects into subversive ones. What do all of these things have in common? Crafters! That’s right, knitting and crocheting have been making a youthful and public comeback since the 1990s, through the work of guerilla knitters, yarn bombers and craftivists. In 2004, we began following this seemingly innocuous phenomenon--handcrafting, and will share in this presentation our research experiences with craftivists, including local and global examples.

Healthy Communities Film: "With My Own Two Wheels"

Healthy Communities Film: "With My Own Two Wheels"

Monday, April 7, 2014 - 7:00 pm

Can a simple 19th century technology change the world? For most North Americans, a bicycle ride or commute is a lifestyle choice. For countless others across the globe, each pedal stroke is progress out of poverty, toward an education and over the mountains of social and cultural discrimination.

"With My Own Two Wheels" profiles the lives of five people and portrays the powerful difference a bicycle has made for each of them and their communities. The film can be used to better understand their life circumstances, the power of an "appropriate" human-scale technology in an increasingly hi-tech world and to inspire discussion on how we can each contribute to improving the lives of people around the world, even in simple ways.

This session discusses how to work with students from a trauma background and seeks to change the paradigm from "What's wrong with you?" to "What happened to you?"

Graduate College Brown Bag Lecture: "Complexity as a Catalyst for Flow and Creativity in the Early Family Lives of Highly Creative People"

Graduate College Brown Bag Lecture: "Complexity as a Catalyst for Flow and Creativity in the Early Family Lives of Highly Creative People"

Monday, April 14, 2014 - 12:00 pm

Gary Gute, director, Creative Life Research Center and associate professor, School of Applied Human Sciences, and Deanne Gute, associate director, Creative Life Research Center, will present "Complexity as a Catalyst for Flow and Creativity in the Early Family Lives of Highly Creative People." Bring your lunch; cookies will be provided. Forty years of creativity literature has identified complexity and flow as central to the lives of creative persons. However, research has not sufficiently explored the influence of complexity within the family in shaping adult creativity. This presentation reports the results of a study (Gute, Gute, Nakamura, & Csikszentmihalyi) that explored complexity in the early family lives of nine creative exemplars who have made significant contributions to contemporary culture.

Earth Science Seminar: Muddied Waters--Examining Iowa's Policies and Practices

Earth Science Seminar: Muddied Waters--Examining Iowa's Policies and Practices

Monday, April 14, 2014 - 4:00 pm

Jorgen Rose, political science major, will discuss Iowa's public policies and water pollution.  

Abstract: Clean, usable fresh water is a precious and valuable resource, but it is one that we often mistreat and misuse. In particular, surface water is extremely vulnerable to human actions and influences; nowhere is this more apparent than in agricultural states like Iowa, where nonpoint-source pollution (runoff) has a dramatic effect on our rivers, lakes, and streams. However, despite this continuing decline in the quality of Iowa’s water, there exists very little public policy aimed at dealing with the problems of nutrient contamination and other forms of nonpoint-source pollution. Furthermore, what policy does exist is either ineffective or insufficient. The goal of this research was to attempt to discern why this gap in Iowa’s public policy exists. By examining current and historical factors associated with policymaking in Iowa, it was possible to gain a detailed understanding of why such a lack of effective and sufficient policy exists today. Operating on the assumption that in order to fix a problem it is first necessary to accurately comprehend what is wrong, this research identified two broad “primary culprits” behind the lack of effective policy in Iowa: economics and culture. And although much research has been done into various facets of this topic before, a holistic, wide-angle view of the problem both proved most appropriate for accurately assessing the problem and more effective at providing for policy implications that might have otherwise been missed.

Jackson Katz guest lecture- "More Than a Few Good Men"

Thursday, April 24, 2014 - 7:30 pm

Jackson Katz is an educator, anti-sexist male activist, social theorist, author and filmmaker. He holds a Master’s degree from Harvard Graduate School of Education, with a focus in the social construction of violent masculinities through sports and media. He holds a Ph. D. in cultural studies and education from UCLA. Katz has dedicated his life to gender violence prevention.  He developed the gender violence prevention program, Mentors in Violence Prevention (MVP), at the Northeastern University’s Center for the Study of Sport in Society in 1993. The MVP program serves to empower both males and females from all socioeconomic, racial, ethnic, and sexual orientation backgrounds to become leaders and teaches the skills needed to build positive environments in schools, businesses and communities.

The evening lecture will give an opportunity for many students and faculty who have trained and/or educated in the MVP model to hear Katz lecture live on the development and impact of the model. Three student organizations have applied for funding to support the visit: Masters in Social Work Student Association: UNI Supporters of the United States Army, Sigma Phi Epsilon, a men’s fraternity that has been very engaged with CVP initiatives.

Earth Science Seminar: Reconstructing Northeast Iowa's Periglacial Environment

Earth Science Seminar: Reconstructing Northeast Iowa's Periglacial Environment

Monday, April 28, 2014 - 4:00 pm

James Walters, Department of Earth Science, will discuss his research on "Reconstructing Northeast Iowa's Periglacial Environment." 

During late Pleistocene time, the landform region known as the Iowan Surface of Northeast Iowa, situated between the Des Moines Lobe glacial ice to the west and the Lake Michigan glacial lobe to the east, experienced a periglacial environment. The characteristics of this former environment are not well known, but the presence of features known as “ice-wedge casts” indicates that permanently frozen ground (permafrost) was present. The actual timing of this event is also not well known, but recent optically stimulated luminescence dating of sands from sand stringers overlying the pre-Illinoian till suggests that these events were taking place between about 24,000 and 16,500 years ago.  

For the last several years, Walters has investigated the relict periglacial features of the Iowan Surface in an attempt to reconstruct the severity, timing and other characteristics of this environment.
