Being told you're "crazy smart" is a compliment. Being told you're just crazy is not. So what happens if you might be "crazy smart" and also, well, crazy?

Crazy/Smart is an honors thesis creative project created and directed by Molly Bishop. Containing interview material and experiences from students at Barrett, the Honors College, Crazy/Smart works to critically re-examine how mental health is approached in honors higher education. What if we reimagined the American education system to not just try and support, but prioritize mental health?

Stuck in a suffocating prison cell with the bustling city of 1975 Buenos Aires just beyond the walls that confine them, Valentin, a political prisoner, and Molina, a plant sent to spy on Molina, only have each other for company. Molina passes the hours by telling Valentin stories of classic films, and they form a beautiful relationship in stark contrast to the terrifying world that surrounds them. Molina must choose loyalty to either Valentin or the regime. Written by Manuel Puig. Directed by Guillermo Reyes.

En el año 1975, en una prisión de la ciudad de Buenos Aires, atrapados en una sofocante celda, Valentín, un prisionero político, y Molina, un hombre gay, encuentran  consuelo en su compañía mutua. Molina pasa las horas narrando las historias de películas clásicas y los dos forman una íntima relación muy diferente al mundo aterrador de fuera.  Aún así, las autoridades buscan la manera de volver el uno contra el otro. Una obra de Manuel Puig. Dirigida por Guillermo Reyes.

The Spanish version of this play has been cancelled.

The universal and timely themes of gentrification and migration are rendered in the choreography of ordinary people inhabiting and leaving a structure.

The perception we have of our place in the world around us is a level of consciousness that is the defining point of our own humanity.

In the last year alone, numerous high-profile attacks against houses of worship have grabbed the world’s attention. A synagogue in California, a mosque in New Zealand, and a church in Sri Lanka — these are just the latest sites to be targeted with violence. A range of different actors — white supremacists as well as religious extremists, “lone wolves” as well as terrorist organizations — have carried out these attacks, drawing from of a range of different motives.

Here in the United States, the FBI reports that hate crimes have risen in recent years, including religiously motivated ones. Attacks against the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, a Sikh temple in Wisconsin and an African American church in Charleston all stunned the nation. Meanwhile, some of the deadliest attacks against places of worship in the last decade — in Pakistan, Egypt, Yemen, and Iran — have gone largely unnoticed. For that matter, governments such as Russia, Syria, and Saudi Arabia have destroyed countless mosques over the past few years.

Why are mosques, temples, churches and other places of worship so often singled out for attack? Who are the different actors and agents that carry out this violence, and what are their goals and motives? Can we form any generalizations from these disparate examples and places? Please join our panel of experts for a discussion of these and other questions:

  • Do recent attacks such as those we’ve seen in 2019 represent a new phenomenon? Or are they continuations of larger historical patterns?
  • What are the hidden stories behind attacks against houses of worship that go unreported in the media and get overlooked in public discourse?
  • Are attacks against houses of worship best understood through global, national, or local contexts? How — and to whom — do the impacts of such attacks extend beyond the specific sites in which they occur? How do broader frameworks and discussions — about “terrorism” or “religious freedom” or “religious conflict" — clarify or impede our understanding of these attacks?
  • What are the best ways evidence shows to confront, minimize or eliminate these attacks? Are there good news stories or other signs of hope that come out of these grievous events?

Free and open to the public, but RSVPs are kindly requested

Please join our diverse panel of experts in exploring these and other questions:

Anand Gopal (Columbia University) is an award-winning journalist and assistant research professor with ASU’s Center for the Study of Religion and Conflict and Center on the Future of War. Gopal’s reporting on Afghanistan, Syria and Iraq has earned him the highest accolades in journalism, including the National Magazine Award, the George Polk Award, the Hillman Prize, and the Overseas Press Club Award. He is the author of "No Good Men Among the Living," which won the Ridenhour Book Prize, and his most recent piece, “Syria’s Last Bastion of Freedom,” appeared in The New Yorker in December 2018. Gopal co-directed, with John Carlson and Kristin Gilger, “Religion, Journalism and Democracy: Strengthening Vital Institutions of Civil Society,” a project that helped train journalists and scholars in more nuanced approaches to public engagement around issues of religion, politics and war. Reflecting his expertise in complex network analysis, ethnographically-based data journalism, and issues of objectivity in journalism, Gopal is currently co-principal investigator for two quite different projects, one on proxy warfare and the other on “Recovering Truth: Religion, Journalism and Democracy in a Post-Truth Era.”

Rev. Dr. Yolanda Pierce (Cornell University) is professor and dean of the Howard University School of Divinity in Washington, D.C. She is the first woman to hold this position in the school’s 150-year history. Prior to joining Howard, Pierce served as the founding director of the Center for African American Religious Life at the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture. She also served as the director of the Center for Black Church Studies and associate professor of religion and literature at Princeton Theological Seminary. Pierce’s research specialties include African American religious history; womanist theology; African American Literature; and race and religion.

She has been the recipient of numerous honors and awards, including fellowships from the Ford Foundation, the Mellon Foundation, and the Pew Foundation, and her commentary appears in a wide variety of publications, including: Time Magazine; Christian Century; Sojourners; Theology Today; and Christianity & Literature.

As senior vice president of programs, George Selim leads the Anti-Defamation League’s education, law enforcement and community security programs and oversees the work of ADL’s Center on Extremism. Prior to his appointment at ADL in 2017, Selim served in the administrations of Presidents Bush, Obama and Trump, most recently as the Department of Homeland Security’s first director of the Office for Community Partnerships. Concurrently, he was selected to lead a newly created Countering Violent Extremism Task Force to coordinate government efforts and partnerships to prevent violent extremism in the United States. Before assuming these roles, Selim served for four years at the White House on the National Security Council Staff where he focused on policy development and program implementation matters for both domestic and international security threats. Prior to his work at the White House, Selim served as a senior policy adviser at the DHS Office for Civil Rights & Civil Liberties. With degrees from Georgetown University and Walsh University, he has also worked at the U.S. Department of Justice, the Arab American Institute, and served one year with AmeriCorps. 

John Carlson (University of Chicago) will serve as moderator for the event. Carlson is interim director of the ASU Center for the Study of Religion and Conflict and an associate professor of religious studies. A scholar of religious ethics, his research explores how religious and moral inquiry informs and invigorates our understanding of political life. He has written on issues of war and peace, religion and violence, justice and human rights, democracy and civic life, and a variety of social and political issues, both domestic and international. Carlson is coeditor of, and contributor to, three books — "From Jeremiad to Jihad: Religion, Violence, and America;" "Religion and the Death Penalty: A Call for Reckoning;" and "The Sacred and the Sovereign: Religion and International Politics" — and is the author of more than 25 book chapters and articles. He is principal investigator (with Tracy Fessenden) for a project funded by the Henry Luce Foundation on “Recovering Truth: Religion, Journalism and Democracy in a Post-Truth Era,” which will be launching in Spring 2020, and is also co-directing a project on “Religion and Global Citizenship” with Linell Cady.

This colloquium focuses on labor-based grading contracts that take individual grades off assignments during the semester, while still producing a final course grade. They offer classrooms more democratic and socially just grading environments that value more fully the labor all students put into their writing and reading assignments. They also offer better relationships with students, and deeper discussions on student writing that engage with the politics of language and its judgment. The workshop, led by Asao B. Inoue, associate dean and professor in the College of Integrative Sciences and Arts, will provide a template and a few online resources for participants.

Inoue, who is the 2019 chair of the Conference on College Composition and Communication, has written many award-winning articles, chapters and books on writing assessment, race, and racism. His article “Theorizing Failure in U.S. Writing Assessments” in the journal Research in the Teaching of English won the 2014 CWPA Outstanding Scholarship Award. His co-edited collection “Race and Writing Assessment” (2012) won the 2014 NCTE/CCCC Outstanding Book Award for an edited collection. His book ”Antiracist Writing Assessment Ecologies: Teaching and Assessing for a Socially Just Future” (2015) won the 2017 NCTE/CCCC Outstanding Book Award for a monograph and the 2015 CWPA Outstanding Book Award. He also has published the co-edited collection ”Writing Assessment, Social Justice, and The Advancement of Opportunity” (2018), and the book ”Labor-Based Grading Contracts: Building Equity and Inclusion in the Compassionate Writing Classroom” (2019).

This workshop, to be held from noon to 1 p.m. Oct. 22, in Santan Hall, Room 331, is part of the Social Science Colloquium series at ASU Polytechnic campus, a forum for student-faculty-community dialog on a range of research questions and issues.

The current political discourse in the United States has reached a new level of divisiveness where opposing parties have gone to their respective corners with little peacemaking to bridge the divide. In the midst of this troubling state of affairs are hundreds of tribal nations, which are wisely buffering their own governments from the fray while remaining observant of the state of play. This lecture will examine how current trends in the American political discourse may have a collateral or direct impact on tribal nations' sovereign rights and authorities for better or for worse and what role Native American legal practitioners can play in this dynamic, changing landscape. The speaker, Hilary C. Tompkins, will bring her experience as a Native American woman and former Solicitor of the U.S. Department of the Interior to offer her insights as to what influences government decisionmakers in Indian affairs law and policy and how current dynamics can offer opportunities and risks for tribal nations, as reflected through recent, significant court rulings.

This annual lecture is named in honor of William C. Canby Jr., of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, a founding faculty member of the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law and the Indian Legal Program.

Event website: https://law.asu.edu/canby. RSVPs appreciated.

Reception to follow. Free and open to the public.

The movie "Crazy Rich Asians" drew much media attention in 2018 for promoting itself as standing for “Asian representation.” But the claim of “Asian representation” begs the question: representation for whom?

Join Terrie Wong, lecturer in communication in the Faculty of Languages and Cultures, for a presentation that, informed by critical geopolitics, presents a critical textual analysis of "Crazy Rich Asians" and of English-language media reports on the movie, to unpack visual and discursive constructions of the notion of “Asian representation.”

The claim of “Asian representation” will be demystified by revealing its reification of imperialist, orientalist ideologies and its reproduction of oppressive geopolitical structures of race, class and nationality under the guise of diversity, inclusion and representation. The presentation concludes with a discussion of the relevance of geopolitical yellowface logics for complicating our understanding of Asian identities in terms of transnational power relations.

The presentation is part of the College of Integrative Sciences and Arts' Humanities Lecture Series at the ASU Downtown Phoenix campus. The series provides opportunities to analyze, discuss and interpret current research and events. The public discussions help us understand and appreciate various points of view on political, social and cultural issues.
