This forum will address New York's actions and the efforts of the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Financial Stability Board's Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures concerning climate disclosures.

Michael is a writer and filmmaker of "hopeful stories for complex people" (and also some silly comedic material). He lives in Brooklyn with his talented wife and adorable pets. He is also the host of "Coffee with Creatives," a podcast where he interviews creative peers from various industries to discuss how to create great work and how to keep creating it.

The film itself (which is under 90 minutes) starts at 7:30 p.m. If you only attend the film it should wrap up after the Q&A by 9:30 p.m. We hope you will then join us for another hour or so to mix and mingle at a nearby Detroit venue. We'll pick up the tab for some appetizers, too. Drinks are on your own.

Please purchase your tickets — $11 per person — by ordering through the link here. Feel free to bring guests.

While we are not selling the tickets, we would like headcount so we can plan for the afterglow. Please RSVP via our Event page here if you plan to go.

We are pleased to welcome Associate Professor of Art History and Visual Communication at Columbia, Johanna Fassl for a special talk on what happens to perception under great emotional stress and how perception changes in a war zone. In order to guarantee survival, eye and brain zoom in on anything that could lead to an explosion or presents a threat: a piece of wire; a cell phone; a living body. Drawing from Hollywood film, literature, photography, and her own work with artists who have served as soldiers in the ongoing conflict zones, Dr. Fassl’s talk takes you inside a an artist-soldier’s world and explains how the eye receives visual information, how it is encoded in the brain, remembered in the mind, and ultimately represented in an artist’s work.

After Dr Fassl's talk join us and alums from LSE, NYU, and Oxbridge for refreshments.

A contribution of 15 CHF towards refreshments is requested.

Robert Kaplan, voted in 2011 as one of the one hundred top global thinkers by Forbes magazine explains why the next hot spot in the world will be the South China Sea in his book Asia's Cauldron

The author views china's gradual control of the South China Sea lanes as a gradual evolution of a growing economic power hungry for resources and anxious to trade. Growing capitalism inevitably leads to growing militarism. History shows it. The author demonstrates objectivity and cultural sensitivity in his analysis of a serious clash of interests between nations that share the troubled but resource rich South China Sea.

Event Description:
Speaker: Dr. Robert Scheller, a Charles Bullard Fellow, at Harvard Forest

Dr. Scheller grew up in Minnesota and received his B.S. in Biology from the University of Minnesota and Masters and Doctoral degrees in Forest Ecology from the University of Wisconsin.  He is an Associate Professor at Portland State University and the Director of the Dynamic Ecosystems and Landscapes Lab.  His research focuses on forest landscape change:  how forests have changed, how they will change, and why it matters.  Specifically, his research examines how forest management and natural disturbances generate or reduce resilience, specifically in regards to climate change.  Resilience can be expressed in many ways; Robert focuses on biological resilience (plant and animal abundance on the landscape), functional resilience (carbon dynamics, ecosystem processes, and broad-scale disturbance regimes) and spatial resilience (the spatial distribution of biological and functional components).   His research is data-driven (using remote sensing, spatial statistics, and field data collection) and deploys advanced technology to forecast landscape change.  He has published more than 50 manuscripts and book chapters and has received funding from NSF, USDA, USFS, USGS, BLM, EPA and others.  Outside of his academic endeavors, he enjoys the natural wonders of the Pacific Northwest and the cultural wonders of Portland.

Engineering Lecture
Kristin M. Myers, PhD
An Engineering Perspective on Why Women Give Birth Preterm Preterm birth is a long-standing obstetrical dilemma with enormous health consequences for the baby and an emotional burden for families. This talk explores the biomechanics of pregnancy and how engineers work with clinicians to try to understand why some women give birth before term and how we can stop it.

Literature Humanities
Nicholas Dames, the Theodore Kahan Professor of Humanities
Time and the Self in Augustine and Austen: Regret, Nostalgia, and Autobiographical Memory
"You must learn some of my philosophy," Elizabeth Bennet tells Fitzwilliam Darcy at the end of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice: "Think only of the past as its remembrance gives you pleasure." How ought we to think of the relation between our actions or experiences and our sense of selfhood or identity? How should we tell the story of ourselves, and is memory always a moral good? Can forgetting be ethical? What of our past should be saved? This class will explore two very different approaches to these questions, from the late fourth-century Christian theologian to the early 19th-century English novelist, in order to think through some of the ways that the relation of self to recollection has been articulated and expressed in narrative."Time and the Self in Augustine and Austen: Regret, Nostalgia, and Autobiographical Memory"

Music Humanities
Magdalena Stern-Baczewska, Director, Music Performance Program
Piano Miniatures
In contrast to symphonies, which became ever more monumental, piano miniatures (called character pieces) were free-standing vignettes that captured a fleeting emotion and created an intimate connection with the listener. A unique 19th-century genre cultivated by Schubert, Chopin, Schumann, Mendelssohn, and Brahms, the piano miniature continues to be a part of a musical language for composers. The course will feature live performances by Professor Baczewska and students from Columbia's Music Performance Program.

"Like, Literally, LOL": Why Changing Language is So Hard to Love
We all know that language evolves, but it can be strange while it's happening. So much of how language changes from year to year seems juvenile, messy or vulgar. Linguists say that the language rules we are taught in school are fictions: Are they engaging reality or being permissive? Find out why even the slangiest sounding neologisms are actually marvels of nuance and sophistication.

Frontiers of Science
Dustin Rubinstein, the Associate Professor of Ecology, Evolution and Environmental Biology; Director, Program in Tropical Biology and Sustainability; Co-director, Center for Integrative Animal Behavior

Event Description:
Speakers: Various

The inaugural PAGES Volcanic Impacts on Climate and Society (VICS) Workshop will be held at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, The Earth Institute, Columbia University.

The workshop will aim to:

1. Summarize the state of knowledge concerning global radiative forcing from volcanic eruptions, including forcing reconstructions used in climate models. Identify where recent progress has occurred, and where the largest uncertainties remain.

2. Assess the state of consistency between climate responses to volcanic forcing derived from direct observations, inferred from proxy data and simulated by climate models.

3. Gather and synthesize recommendations concerning opportunities and best practices for integrating historical documentary evidence of volcanic climate impacts with estimates from paleoclimate data and climate models. Review progress and challenges in understanding historical societal impacts of volcanic eruptions.

4. Identify and define future goals for the VICS working group, based on the needs of the scientific community and potential stakeholders.
