Russia's Races: Meanings and Practices of Race in Imperial Russia and the Soviet Union

Date:From February 26, 2015 at 10:00 am through February 27, 2015 at 6:00 pm EST

Traditionally scholars of Russia have paid little attention to race, either as a historical phenomenon or as an analytical category. Race, it would seem, does not matter in the Russian case. Only recently have some begun to challenge this long held view that has affected our understanding of Russia’s past no less than its present. But important questions remain. Why has race in Russia been so difficult to analyze? Do race and racism mean the same things in Russia as they do in “classical” racial regimes such as Germany or the United States? In what ways does Russia challenge the category of race as it has been developed in other contexts? Can we talk about the particularity of race in Russia without falling into Russian exceptionalism? This two-day workshop aims to make a serious intervention in a key category of global analysis. It brings together historians, literary scholars, and anthropologists from Europe and the U.S., and combines Russian specialists with discussants from other fields (Latin America, U.S., Western Europe, the Caribbean). The central question will be not whether, but how race has worked in Russia over the past two centuries. We seek to bring Russia into a broader discussion, and at the same time account for the variety of racial systems that emerged in European, American and Asian empires.

Barnard was founded 125 years ago with the feminist mission of providing education to those who were excluded from major avenues of education. In honor of this legacy and the 40th anniversary of BCRW’s signature Scholar & Feminist Conference, this year’s conference builds a feminist framework for understanding the institutional, social, and pedagogical facets of teaching, learning, and schooling. Scholars, activists, educators, and artists explore the K-12 landscape and investigate who can attain post-secondary education, under what circumstances, and at what cost. They discuss diverse feminist approaches to such topics as the Common Core standards, educational alternatives, the school-to-prison pipeline, adjunct labor, sexual violence on campus, and continuing racial and economic segregation within educational spaces. Speakers include Nuala Cabral, Natalia Cecire, Kandice Chu, Tressie McMillan Cottom, Rod Ferguson, Che Gossett, Ileana Jiménez, Liz Losh, Jen Nash, and many more!

The Columbia University Partnership for International Development (CUPID) and Columbia University School of International and Public Affairs is hosting a one-day conference on technology and innovation for international development. This conference will examine opportunities for the international development sector to integrate innovative techniques to better empower individuals and communities. Technology is playing an increasingly important and expanding role in the daily lives of people in developed and developing countries. Mobile phone penetration is approaching 100% globally, and internet access is expanding rapidly in Africa and Asia. This is occurring at the same time as the world reckons with the failure to achieve many of the Millennium Development Goals and increasing demand from donors pressured by austerity calling for development actors to innovate for efficiency and effectiveness. This year's conference will bring together leaders from private sector, non-profits, governments, and international institutions to share their experiences of innovating using technology. Panelists and attendees will have an opportunity to discuss and network to apply new technological solutions to development, or find opportunities to scale up current innovations. The conference will focus on three thematic areas: ● financial technology innovation, ● (big and small) data analytics, and ● social media for social good

The Earth Institute's Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory presents the Earth Science Colloquium, "Deformation of the Upper Mantle: Experimental and Geologic Perspectives", with  Philip Skemer, Assistant Professor, Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences, Washington University in St. Louis.  Open to the Public.

Abstract: Earth’s tectonic plates are characterized by interiors that may be stable over billions of years. However, the actively deforming boundaries between plates are subject to modification over much shorter time scales through the growth of mountains, the creation or recycling of lithosphere, and the transformation of landscapes by volcanic, seismogenic and hydrologic processes. Earth’s particular style of plate tectonics appears to be unique in the solar system and undoubtedly contributes to some of the basic differences between the evolution of Earth and the other terrestrial planets. However, many fundamental questions about plate tectonics persist. What are the patterns of underlying mantle flow and what can we learn from these flow patterns about the convective forces that drive plate tectonics? What are the rheological properties of the rocks that make up the crust and mantle? How do plates form narrow, dynamic boundaries?  In this talk I describe some new insights into evolving deformation microstructures and how these modify our understanding of mantle rheology and flow.  I highlight two recent studies. First, I discuss new constraints on the microphysics of shear localization, an essential feature of plate boundary deformation. Plausible mechanisms for shear localization are assessed and experiments are described, which help to explain the enigmatic microstructures observed in highly deformed mantle shear zones. Second, I discuss the use of seismic anisotropy to infer patterns of flow in Earth’s mantle. I will describe how geological and experimental data constrain the evolution of olivine crystallographic-preferred orientation (CPO), the source of most upper mantle seismic anisotropy near plate boundaries.

Host: Christine McCarthy, Lamont Assistant Research Professor, Seismology, Geology and Tectonophysics, Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory.

Please join us for Friday Synthesis Symposium!

"Inorganic Aromaticity: Synthesis and Isolation of the P2N3Anion"

Speaker:  Alexandra Velian, Nuckolls Group

When: Friday, February 27, 2015 at 4 PM

Where: Havemeyer 209

Abstract The synthesis of the diphosphatriazolate anion, a rare example of an aromatic inorganic species and the first five-membered ring composed solely of group 15 elements to ever be isolated as a solid is reported. The P2N3 anion was synthesized from P2A2 (A = C14H10), a source of P2, and the N3 anion and isolated as a [Na-kryptofix-221] salt in 22% yield. Salts [Na-kryptofix-221][P2N3] and [Na-kryptofix-221][P215NN2] were characterized using single crystal X-Ray, IR, RAMAN, 15N and 31P NMR and mass spectroscopy. The formation of the anion was  investigated using DFT methods. NICS and QTAIM methods confirmed the aromatic character of the P2N3 anion.

The Center for Career Education’s (CCE) On-Campus Recruiting Program (OCR) brings employers to campus for the purpose of meeting, interviewing and recruiting students. On-Campus Interviewing (OCI) is a critical component to the success of the On-Campus Recruiting program for both students and employers alike.

Based on recent employer and student feedback, we have updated our OCI policies and procedures. To ensure that everyone is made aware of these updates, all students must gain or re-gain OCI access*. Students who attend this event will be granted OCI access within two business days of the training.

In this training, we will provide students with an overview of The Center for Career Education services and the ways in which they can best prepare for their job search. We will also review how to search and apply for jobs and internships using LionSHARE, CCE’s online job database and recruiting system. Largely, we will speak about the On-Campus Recruiting Program, with a particular focus on on-campus interviews. Students will learn how to best prepare for on-campus interviews, become aware of both student and employer expectations throughout this process, and most importantly, learn how to utilize available resources while navigating the job search and interview process.

*Please keep in mind that if you had OCI access prior to 7/1/2013 and are currently enrolled at Columbia, your OCI access was turned off as new policies are now in place. You must complete the On-Campus Recruiting Program Overview training to re-gain access.

This workshop will be offered on:

Tuesday, January 27, 2015, 12:30-1:00pm

“Learning from the Impacts of Superstorm Sandy: Paleotempestology on Long Island.”

E. Christa Farmer and J. Bret Bennington

 

Abstract:

Analysis of the sedimentology and stratigraphy of Superstorm Sandy washover lobes reveals a grain size profile that is consistent with washout of the dune line as the major source of washover sand. Superstorm Sandy washover deposits are compared to overwash-generated layers in core matched to 20th Century storms using historical aerial photographs. The close similarity in sedimentological characteristics demonstrates that previous washover deposits in this area preserved in the subsurface have very similar characteristics to Sandy overwash, which can be used to distinguish overwash from other types of coarse-grained deposits in the marsh. Trace metal (Cu, Zn, and Pb) concentration profiles in the sediment cores collected from a saltwater marsh on a barrier beach island near Hampton Bays, NY are consistent with values seen in other Atlantic coast saltwater marshes. Peak Pb values in the middle of the profiles are consistent with a higher anthropogenic signal in the middle of the last century, and provide insight into the timing of storm deposits.

 Open to the public.
