Stories for Social Change

4:30 pm - 6:30 pm - Valley Performaning Arts Center, Lecture Auditorium Room 181

The Power of Stories for Social Change

The storytelling of everyday people can serve as a living record of the human experience.  By creating oral and visual histories we remove the filter of an accepted narrative about an individual's or a community's experience.

Stories surround us but what do they do beyond entertain us?  How do stories bring about social change?  Explore the use of stories in the classroom and in the community and bring the results to a day of "stories for social change" in public education.

Panelist: 

Dr. Stacy Holman Jones - Storytelling in Performance

Dr. Marcella De Veaux - Storytelling in the Classroom

Dr. Theresa White - Storytelling in Documentary Film

The panel will be moderated by Nate Thomas.

This event is scheduled for Wednesday, February 20, 2013 from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. in the VPAC Lecture Auditorium, Room 181.

Image for Diversity DayDiversity Day

8:30 am - 3:30 pm - Northridge Center

Announcing the Department of Social Work's 4th Annual DIVERSITY DAY!

Hosted by the Department of Social Work featuring keynote speaker:  Tchicaya Missamou

Born into the Congolese wilderness, Tchicaya Missamou became a child solder at age 11.  As a horrific civil war loomed across his country, Missamou began using his militia connections to ferry jewels, cash, computers, and white diplomats out of the country.  By 17, he was rich.  By 18, he was a hunted man, his house destroyed, his family brutalized in front of him by his own militia.  By 19, he'd left behind everything he'd ever known, escaping to Europe and, eventually to America.  Incredibly, that was only the start of his journey.

Social Work's Fourth Annual Diversity Day will focus on the resilience of trauma survivors and provide education on evidence based trauma-informed interventions and assessment utilizing intersectionality and strengh-based perspectives.

That Supreme Court ruling was in turn legislatively nullified by the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, the first major piece of legislation President Barack Obama signed into law. Ledbetter will speak about "Equal Work, Equal Pay" on March 6th in the Grand Salon at 4 p.m., after which there will be a Q&A and a signing of her new book, Grace and Grit.

Rushing Waters, Rising Dreams: How the Arts Are Transforming a Community

The Northeast San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles is the second largest community of Mexicans and Central Americans in the United States with 500,000 people. The book explores twenty years of how the lack of neighborhood cultural spaces adversely affects struggling families and communities, and how the example of Tia Chucha's inspires a cultural awakening and a revival of the economy and community spirit. The book speaks to a need for a national arts policy of cultural spaces, arts education, independent bookstores, public art projects, and more.

15th Annual Keith Morton Memorial Lecture

5:00 pm - 7:00 pm - Whitsett Room, Sierra Hall 451
http://www.csun.edu/csbs/departments/anthropology/index.html

You are invited to join the Department of Anthropology for the 15th Annual Keith Morton Memorial Lecture, to be delivered by Dr. Normal Yoffee, Emeritus Professor of Anthropology and Near Eastern Studies, University of Michigan and now Adjunct Professor of Anthropology, University of Nevada, Las Vegas and Senior Fellow, Institute for the Study of the Ancient world, NYU.

Professor Yoffee will speak on "The Evolution of Fragility" in the context of sociopolitical and economic systems. He writes, "Archaeologists and others have characterized ancient states and "complex societies" as "integrated." That is, religious and political institutions recombined various social and economic groups into functioning wholes, either through consensus or repression. This process of integration has been described as "social evolution." In this talk, I examine these common suppositions. I begin with Mesopotamia, the region of my specific research, but drift dangerously into areas far from my expertise. Many early societies were far from integrated and stable, but the opposite, fragile. I explore the nature and implications of social fragility."

Women in Ancient Syria

4:00 pm - 6:00 pm - Whitsett Room, Sierra Hall 451

The Department of History is hosting a lecture by Dr. Mark Chavalas of the University of Wisconsin-LA Crosse.  Dr. Chavalas is a distinguished alumnus of the History Department, and taught here as a part-time faculty between 1985 and 1989.

In the past forty years, Syria has become a major center of archaeological investigation.  Among the thousands of cuneiform tablets excavated at the cities of Mari, Emar, Ebla, Terqa, and Shubat-Enlil, are a large number of letters concerning women during the first half of the 2nd millennium B.C., contemporary with Hammurabi's Babylon.  This talk will provide a glance at the life of women from these letters, some of which were written by women themselves.

Mark W. Chavalas is Professor of History at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse, where he has taught since 1989.  His Ph.D. is from UCLA, where he studied ancient Near Eastern history, archaeology, and languages, specializing in Mesopotamia.  He has had fellowships from various universities, including Harvard, Yale, Cal Berkeley, Brown, Cornell, the Univ. of Arizona, and Wisconsin-Madison.  He also has had nine seasons of archaeological field experience in Syria.  His previous books include the co-edited New Horizons in the Study of  Ancient Syria (1992), Mesopotamia and the Bible (2002), Life and Culture in the Ancient Near East (CDL Press 2003), Emar:  The History, Religion, and Culture of a Syrian Town in the Late Bronze Age (1996), and Women in the Ancient Near East (in press).

The Institute for Sustainability is hosting its annual Water Day event on Wednesday March 20th in the USU Northridge Center (World Water Day- the official UN-designated day dedicated to water issues is March 22nd) from 11:00 am - 2:00 pm. There are two separate sessions (to coincide with class times), from 11:00 - 12:15pm and from 12:30 - 1:45pm.

In the first session, you will have the opportunity to see if you can taste the difference between bottled versus tap water. We will also show (part of) the documentary "Tapped" which deals with the issues of bottled water and privatization of water, and have a facilitated discussion of issues surrounding bottled water including the results of the taste test.

In the second session we will discuss water for the developing world and will be hosting a presentation by the Thirst Project (www.thirstproject.org). Is the water safe to drink? Not for 1 billion people! What can YOU do? The Thirst Project raised $2.6 million and have given 100,000 access to clean water. Thirst Project was started by students just like YOU!

At 7pm in the USU Theatre, we will be co-hosting a film screening of "Over Troubled Waters" with Food and Water Watch. An engaging discussion with experts will follow the film. Find out about the state of out water and what you can do. The fate of California's water is in your hands!

Please come and invite your students to join us for this educational event.
