In Darwin's Footsteps: Witnessing the Origin of a New Species in the Galapagos Featuring Professor Jonathan Weiner

Date:March 03, 2015 from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm EST
Location:Columbia University
Morningside Campus
Graduate School of Journalism Lecture Hall

Contact:For further information regarding this event, please contact Lisa Glynn by sending email to zuckermaninstitute@columbia.edu .
Info:Click Here to Visit Website.

Pulitzer-prize-winning author Jonathan Weiner of Columbia University will tell a story of discovery. By going back to the Galapagos year after year, scientists in Darwin’s islands have now witnessed an event that Darwin himself did not think could be seen at all.

Darwin wrote that the origin of a new species would require “the lapse of ages.” But a small team of biologists has been observing the evolution of Darwin’s finches on a desert island in the center of the Galapagos archipelago for more than forty years. Their study shows that evolution can be surprisingly rapid and turbulent. The work throws light on many aspects of the science of life--including the science of the brain.

Weiner is the author of The Beak of the Finch, and five other books. His writing has received many honors, including the National Book Critics Circle Award, the Los Angeles Times Book Award, and a Guggenheim Fellowship. He is the Maxwell M. Geffen Professor of Medical and Scientific Journalism at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism.

This talk is part of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Brain Insight Lecture series, offered free to the public to enhance understanding of the biology of the mind and the complexity of human behavior. The lectures are hosted by The Mortimer B. Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute at Columbia University and supported by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation.

Doors open at 5:45 p.m.

Seating is First Come First Serve.

LBs: Spatial struggles of (and for) lo publico: Changing visions of public space in Bogota

Location:Columbia University
Morningside Campus
Avery Hall 115

Info:Click Here to Visit Website.

The Latin Lab Brown Bag Series are happenings where international scholars introduce issues on Lan American spatial practices. Events sponsored by the Institute of Latin American Studies at Columbia University.

Abstract
The research explores the supposed “decline” from a “best practice” urban planning and governance model focused on public space and “pedagogical” public encounter, to one emphasizing regeneration and public housing (“densification without segregation”) in Bogotá, Colombia. In their attempts to realize different (but ultimately contingent) sociospatial goals identified as “public,” these changes demonstrate the paradoxical coherence and incompleteness of “public” in Bogotá, and the power struggles that (re)produce this in attempts to expand citizens’ “right to the city.”

Erich Hellmer
Erich Hellmer is a PhD student in Urban Studies at the School of Social and Political Science, University of Glasgow. His research interests include urban planning, Latin American cities, and Colombia. More specifically, his work examines the relationship between space and society in Bogotá, Colombia, and how the planned spaces of the city are both oppressive and emancipatory. Erich holds degrees in Anthropology and History from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and in Urban Research from the University of Glasgow.

Could We Critically Redeem Turbo-folk and Should We Even Try?

Date:March 04, 2015 from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm EST
Location:Columbia University
Morningside Campus
International Affairs Building, Room 1219
Contact:For further information regarding this event, please contact Filip Tucek by sending email to ft2439@columbia.edu or by calling 2128544618.

Please join us for a lecture on a frankensteinian music genre combining rural folk ballads with electro-beat, turbo-folk became extremely popular in 1990s Serbia and is on its way to becoming a global Balkan brand.

In his lecture, Vlad Beronja focuses on the highly stylized performance of class, gender, and locality in select trubo-folk music videos that had gone viral immediately upon their release on the web. At the risk of overt didacticism the lecture will be guided by the following question: is turbo-folk a critically redeemable genre or is it destined to remain an ideological monstrosity that it was in the 1990s Serbia? Is it possible to decouple turbo-folk from ethnic nationalism, the new mafia elite, and the patriarchal norms that propped the genre up in the first place? Can the genre accommodate alternative communities and empower marginalized subjects—such as women, queers, and ethnic minorities—through various forms of (dis)identifications?

Vlad Beronja is a Visiting Lecturer in Slavic Languages & Literatures from the University of Michigan.

The event is sponsored by the Harriman Institute and East Central European Center.

Cognitive Reserve: Theory and Neural Implementation

Yaakov Stern, PhD
Professor of Neuropsychology

Date/time: March 4, 2014, 4:00-5:00 pm
Place: Mudd 214 (Corner of 120th and Amsterdam)

Abstract: The concept of “reserve” arose from the mismatch between the extent of brain changes or pathology and the clinical manifestations of these brain changes. The cognitive reserve hypothesis states that individual differences in the flexibility and adaptability of brain networks underlying cognitive function may allow some people to cope better with brain changes than others. Although there is ample epidemiologic evidence for cognitive reserve, the neural substrate of reserve is still a topic of ongoing research. Prof. Stern will review the concept and theory of reserve and describe his approach to investigating its neural implementation. He will present some representative studies from his group that exemplify possibilities for the neural substrate of reserve including neural reserve, neural compensation, and generalized cognitive reserve networks.

Bio: Yaakov Stern is Professor of Clinical Neuropsychology in the Departments of Neurology, Psychiatry, and Psychology, as well as in the Sergievsky Center and the Taub Institute for the Research on Alzheimer’s Disease and the Aging Brain, at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. Dr. Stern directs the Cognitive Neuroscience Division of the Department of Neurology and the post-doctoral training program “Neuropsychology and Cognition in Aging.” Dr. Stern’s research focuses on cognition in normal aging and in diseases of aging, particularly Alzheimer’s disease. One strong theme in his research is individual differences in task performance, in general, and more specifically, exploring the reason why some individuals show more cognitive deficit than others in the face of brain insult. Dr. Stern’s research approach includes classic neuropsychological and cognitive experimental techniques, with a strong focus on functional imaging. He is also conducting a cognitive intervention studies in healthy individuals, and a natural history study of Alzheimer's disease.

The purpose of the NPC is solely to advise, inform, and make recommendations to the Secretary of Energy on any matter requested by the Secretary relating to oil and natural gas or the oil and gas industries.

Energy, Environment, Community, and Corporate Responsibility: A Q&A, film screening, and panel discussion at Columbia University.

Free tickets available at: truepriceofoil.eventbrite.com

The price at the gasoline pump doesn’t reflect the social and environmental cost of oil development to the communities and ecosystems near extraction sites. Global production and consumption of oil and gas are projected to increase for decades to come, with development projects expanding into socially and environmentally sensitive areas. How can the industry and users of oil and gas products learn from the mistakes of the past and build a more responsible, less disruptive future for oil and gas development?

The documentary film “Oil and Water” tells the story of people and places in the Amazon Basin harmed by irresponsible oil development dating back to the 1960s and asks what can be done to ensure it doesn’t happen again. Join Columbia faculty and Equitable Origin for a screening of “Oil and Water,” Q&A with one of its subjects, and a panel discussion of the film, the pathway of future oil and gas development, who will endure its damages, and who will reap its benefits.
