Most of our modern political-economic categories are based on the idea that energy mainly comes from fossil fuels — but what happens when renewable energy powers a society instead?

Itaipú Binational Hydroelectric Dam (Brazil-Paraguay) straddles the tumultuous Paraná River border that divides the two countries that equally co-own it, generating the carbon-free electricity that powers development in both the giant of South America and one of the smallest economies of the region. The result is a new kind of territory contoured along electrical wires and waterways, creating such tight circulations of electrical charge and money that the distinctions between the two blur, suggestive of something more like an eco-currency.

Please join the School of Human Evolution and Social Change for lunch and a talk by guest speaker Christine Folch.

About the speaker

Folch is an assistant professor of cultural anthropology and environmental science and policy at Duke University. She is the principal investigator of a multi-year project, Itaipú Post-2023, based on Paraguay’s energy policy. She has also published on commodities and the cultural resonance of cuisine.

The Arizona Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies is pleased to invite you to the 2019 Distinguished Lecture with special guest Peter Sellars.

In this conversation, Peter Sellars and Ayanna Thompson, director of the Arizona Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies, will consider the ways classical texts address contemporary issues. How does the work of Shakespeare and other authors speak to the challenges we face in our society today?

About Peter Sellars

Peter Sellars has gained international renown for his groundbreaking and transformative interpretations of artistic masterpieces and for collaborative projects with an extraordinary range of creative artists.

His landmark staging of Sophocles’ "Ajax," set at the Pentagon, was invited to tour Europe and ignited the start of an international career. Other noteworthy theater projects include a 1994 staging of Shakespeare’s "The Merchant of Venice" set in Southern California with a cast of black, white, Latino and Asian-American actors; a production of Euripides’ "The Children of Herakles," focusing on contemporary immigration and refugee issues and experience; and, in 2009, "Othello," inspired by and set in the America of newly elected President Barack Obama. "Desdemona," Sellars’ collaboration with the Nobel Prize-winning novelist Toni Morrison and Malian composer and singer Rokia Traore, has been performed in Vienna, Brussels, Paris, Berkeley, New York, Los Angeles, Berlin, Amsterdam and Naples, and was presented in London as part of the 2012 Cultural Olympiad.

He has staged operas at the Dutch National Opera, Festival d’Aix-en-Provence, Opera National de Paris, Salzburg Festival and San Francisco Opera, among others.

He is a distinguished professor in the Department of World Arts and Cultures at University of California, Los Angeles. Sellars is the recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship, the Erasmus Prize for contributions to European culture, the Gish Prize, and he is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. In 2014, he was awarded the prestigious Polar Music Prize and named artist of the year by Musical America.

What is D&I?
Dissemination research is the scientific study of the targeted distribution of information and intervention materials to a specific public health or clinical practice audience. The intent is to understand how best to spread and sustain knowledge and the associated evidence-based interventions. Implementation research is the scientific study of the use of strategies to adopt and integrate evidence-based health interventions into clinical and community settings in order to improve patient outcomes and benefit population health.

What is an Affinity Network?
Affinity Networks (ANs) are self-organizing knowledge networks composed of individuals interested in exploring or developing topics, methods and approaches that foster new knowledge, information and approaches that can be disseminated and implemented in the College of Health Solutions, ASU and beyond. These networks focus on methodology, providing a place for faculty and staff to work on concepts, methods and skills.

ASU's College of Nursing and Health Innovation will host Susan Dentzer, president and CEO of The Network for Excellence in Health Innovation on Friday, Jan. 25, 2019, for a special free presentation of “Health Care Without Walls: What It Means for Practice, Education and Training.”

Imagine a health care system that came to you — a system that met you, as an individual, where you are, in your home, workplace, or community. Such a system would anticipate your needs and work to keep you as healthy as possible and view any of your needs to access “sick care” as a possible sign that the system had let you down. This system would address the upstream drivers of your health status, and yet be as convenient and accessible as other elements of your life that you now take for granted, like ordering online.  Such a system could be called "Health Care Without Walls."

The Network for Excellence in Health Innovation (NEHI) has produced a vision of what Health Care Without Walls could look like in 2025, if and when all aspects of current technologies — from telemedicine to remote monitoring, and from fully interoperable electronic health records to artificial intelligence — were combined with a reconfigured health care work force to create it. 

NEHI President and CEO Susan Dentzer will describe current trends and examples moving us toward the vision of Health Care Without Walls, and the public policy changes and private sector measures necessary to achieve it.

RSVP to attend.

In the first half of 2018, more than 1,000 people were killed or wounded in mass shootings in the US. No wonder gun violence is a top concern for most Americans. But how do we deal with this crisis? Stricter gun laws? Better law enforcement? The Centers for Disease Control calls gun violence a public health issue, not a legal one. But is it a health concern? What does it mean to examine gun violence as a health issue? Does it change the debate, and what solutions are likely to result?

Join the conversation as experts discuss the implications of seeing gun violence as a health issue rather than a legal issue. The event includes audience Q&A and will be recorded as a live podcast.

Doors open at 4:30 p.m.

Is it OK to take Ritalin or Adderall if you don’t have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder? Both are stimulants prescribed to treat ADHD and similar conditions, but more and more college students are taking them to stay awake, suppress their appetite or just because they say it makes them feel smarter when they’re taking a test. They’re buying them from fellow students who have prescriptions. Is this safe? Is it legal?

Join us for a discussion about the sharing of ADHD medications on college campuses. A panel of experts will explore this issue, and the event includes time for audience Q&A. The session will also be recorded as a live podcast.

Doors open at 4:30 p.m.
