The Quick Fix and the Long Arc: Improving Your Writing at L&C

Writing is a crucial academic skill, but it is also an essential life skill, central to a purposeful and reflective life. Surviving the next paper sometimes leads students to lose sight of longer-term goals, but setting those goals is essential to developing into a mature and confident writer. This workshop will offer concrete advice to improve your fall E&D papers, but will also help you start thinking about how to develop better writing habits, respond to feedback from professors whose expectations can differ, and track the growth of your writing across the longer arc of a Lewis & Clark education.

E&D Film Screening & Discussion - Born in Flames

Miller 105
Is “the revolution” really so revolutionary if it ignores the concerns of poor women, queer people, and people of color? And what happens when the forgotten fight back? In grainy cinéma-vérité style, Lizzie Borden’s 1983 feminist sci-fi dystopian film Born in Flames asked these questions, at a moment when president Ronald Reagan promised “morning in America” while ushering in a culture war against society’s most marginalized. Featuring a DIY punk-rock soundtrack and aesthetic that influenced later waves of feminist musician-activists like Bikini Kill’s Kathleen Hanna, this “unruly, unclassifiable film,” as Village Voice writer Melissa Anderson has put it, “proves as bracing today as it was back when this country began its inexorable shift to the right.”

Exploration & Discovery Professor Dr. Sara Appel will facilitate the conversation and provide opening remarks.

E&D Spring Colloquium - Cities

According to the World Health Organization: One hundred years ago, 2 out of every 10 people lived in an urban area. By 1990, less than 40% of the global population lived in a city, but as of 2010, more than half of all people live in an urban area. By 2030, 6 out of every 10 people will live in a city, and by 2050, this proportion will increase to 7 out of 10 people… Today, the number of urban residents is growing by nearly 60 million every year. (http://www.who.int/gho/urban_ health/situation_trends/urban_population_growth_text/en/, 1/10/14) What are the causes and effects, the advantages and disadvantages, of urbanization? How have cities changed through history and how do they differ throughout the world? How has the move to cities affected our social, political, economic, and cultural experiences and expressions?

E&D Spring Colloquium - Money

While money is a ubiquitous element in our lives—we work for it, try to win it, sometimes steal it; we spend it, save it, and never seem to have enough. But just what is money? How does it acquire the value we ascribe to it? Who decides what it is worth? How can pieces of metal or paper, or mere digital numbers on a screen, be traded for food, housing, entertainment, and so forth? How can the value of money change unexpectedly, as in periods of rapid inflation? Are there any viable alternatives to a money economy?

Is Conflict Bad?

Exploration and Discovery Spring Colloquium Series
Presented by:
Janet Davidson, Psychology
Conflict can be viewed as a human flaw because it typically involves misperceptions, lack of perspective taking, simplistic thinking, and an unwillingness to co-operate. Moreover, it takes a toll on both the winners and the losers. Conflict is explicable in children and other species because they do not have fully developed frontal lobes in their brains. Human adults, however, do not have this excuse. Although some amount of conflict will no doubt always be with us, a thoughtful consideration of why it is bad is the first step in reducing its frequency and the toll that it takes.

Elliott Young, History
Conflict is not only not bad, it’s good.  Without conflict, the world would stagnate and the rich and powerful would remain rich and powerful.  Slavery, genocide, and colonialism would never have ended without conflict.  Of course, not all conflicts are good and necessary, but the absence of conflict is the pathway to fascism.

Bob Mandel, International Affairs
Whether or not conflict is “bad” is a subject of great controversy.  In some circumstances, conflict associates with attempts to achieve constructive progress and to rectify unjust conditions, while in other circumstances conflict reflects selfish and even evil ambitions and aggrandizement efforts.  Sweeping generalizations about conflict, violence, and war tend to gloss over critical circumstances that change both the reality and the framing of conflict.  In many circumstances the imposition of peace can be just as troublesome as the outbreak of conflict.  Furthermore, differences among interpersonal, intergroup, and international norms about acceptable intentions and behavior make this an enticing yet thorny topic.

This event is free and open to the Lewis & Clark Community.
Please note: This lecture will not be videotaped.

What is Natural?

Exploration and Discovery Spring Colloquium Series
Presented by:
Greta Binford, Biology
Arguably, since earth (minus solar energy) is a closed system, everything is natural. Life in all its various and bizarre forms is natural, humans emerged from the natural process of evolution, and the elements that humans use in myriad ways are natural.  So by extension, are all of the things created by humans using the elements from the earth natural? The term natural is, of course a human construct. In practice we refer to things in our world as “unnatural” when they have been changed by humans to a degree that they are substantially different from their natural origins. When does this transition represent a concern? Is our reference point for recognizing “unnatural” based on what other more “natural” species do? When we have modified the “natural” to such a degree that we pose harm to our otherwise natural existence? Are we, as products of nature, capable of recognizing this?

Jerusha Detweiler-Bedell, Psychology
Human beings, as social animals, are exquisitely susceptible to the power of the immediate social situation. It is natural, then, for humans to wield immense influence over one another. It is also natural for our behavior to be less under our own control than we would like to believe. Understanding this lesson demands us to accept the fact that it is equally natural for good people to commit atrocities as it is for sociopaths to commit acts of kindness. This beg the question: Are we wolves or sheep?

Reiko Hillyer, History
Is there such a thing as “natural world,” that is, a non-human wilderness that is distinct from the human world of culture? Is human behavior and are human relations natural? Do humans naturally have the propensity to enjoy private property or to categorize people by race? How have ideas about what is “natural” been used to justify social inequality?

What is Modernity?

Exploration and Discovery Spring Colloquium Series
Presented by:

Maureen Healy, History
Trains, travel and time zones. Does the advent of “modernity” come in the nineteenth century? Explore the geographic and temporal imaginations of nineteenth-century Europeans. They moved through space and measured time in novel ways; a simple ride on a train or a synchronizing of clocks changed the ways people imagined the world to be.

Paul Powers, Religious Studies
Sociologist Peter Berger has described the key dynamic of modernity as a “shift from fate to choice.” Among the many aspects of life increasingly subject to choice is one’s religious commitments, including the possibility of rejecting religion altogether. Prof. Powers will discuss how the changing nature of religiosity interacts with modern emphases on individual subjectivity, interiority, and self-care, and new modes of religious and political authority.

Rishona Zimring, English
How did artistic modernism, especially literature and the visual arts in the early 20th century, respond to the radically altered experience of everyday life brought about by modernity?

Is There a Scientific Method?

Exploration and Discovery Spring Colloquium Series
Presented by:
Liz Safran, Geological Science
Cliff Bekar, Economics
Jay Odenbaugh, Philosophy

Most science textbooks have a discussion of THE scientific method. However, there are several questions to consider.  Do the natural sciences have a method which they employ? Does the method find itself used in the social sciences or do they have their own methods? Do scientists – natural or social – stick with this method or violate in their work?

The Science and Culture of Food

Exploration and Discovery Spring Colloquium Series
presented by:
Janis Lochner:  Why is nutritional research often targeted at discerning the relationship between disease and specific nutrients? Are there “good” and “bad” nutrients? Is a reductive approach to understanding nutrition warranted?

Bob Goldman: A brief overview of industrial food systems and within that context discuss the development of alternative food economies such as that in Portland. Do such local food alternatives presume privilege? What is their relationship to those who are not privileged by class, race and income?  Can privilege catalyze change or does it preserve the status quo?

Barry Glassner: A presentation on a few studies by social psychologists, sociologist, and others that are particularly instructive about Americans’ beliefs and methods of reasoning about food, with a focus on Glassner’s book, ‘The Gospel of Food’.
