An Illustrated Dictionary of Urban Overflows: Nakahira Takuma’s Urban Photography and Writing

Franz Prichard, Assistant Professor of East Asian Studies, Princeton University
Campus Center, Weis Cinema  In the early 1970s, the work of celebrated Japanese photographer and critic Nakahira Takuma (1938–2015) underwent a dramatic transformation. The intensive urbanization of Japan during the 1960s and ’70s would effectively redraw the nation’s social and political contours. These pivotal decades witnessed Japan’s integration into the U.S. geopolitical order, undertaken in fits and stages since Japan’s surrender in 1945. Through regional planning and infrastructural projects, such as airports, freeways, and nuclear reactors (including the Fukushima Dai'ichi plant), the entire archipelago was envisioned as an integrated network of communication, transportation, and exchange. At the same time, television and the expanded circulation of image media played an increasingly crucial role in mediating the fraught relationships between the urbanized centers and the remote limits of this wholly remade nation-state. This talk will explore how photographer and critic Nakahira Takuma wrought a vividly urban photographic vocabulary and praxis from the changing urban and media environments of Japan’s Cold War–fueled remaking. Engaging the linkages of Nakahira’s work from the early 1970s with emergent forms of radical film and urban discourse, I will outline a provocative moment of critique to reveal the shifting terrain of power and possibility at the crux of Japan’s Cold War urbanization.

The Chimpanzees of Ngogo
Kibale National Park, Uganda

Sarah Dunphy-Lelii, Associate Professor of Psychology
Kline, Faculty Dining Room 
The wild Ngogo chimpanzee community, ranging through a large tract of virgin rainforest in southwest Uganda, is the largest in the world. Research at Ngogo focuses on exploring the ecological reasons for this unusual demographic situation and its influence on chimp behavior. Past and ongoing topics of study include intra- and inter-sexual social relationships and cooperation, kinship and social relationships, mating behavior and reproductive success, hunting and meat sharing, territorial behavior, and feeding ecology. Intense observation and coordination with local communities, continual since 1993, supports the preservation of this highly endangered species. Sarah will speak about her 5 month stay at the field site, and her own research project on vocal greeting behavior.

STS and Climate Catastrophe

A Short Introduction to the Science, Technology, and Society (STS) Concentration
 
Campus Center, Weis Cinema  Why are we apparently unable to respond effectively to climate catastrophe?

The report last week from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) details how a catastrophic form of climate change is imminent unless dramatic action is taken now. Yet even aside from the question of political will, the global response to climate change appears woefully limited. Why is this problem apparently so intractable and how can we nonetheless move toward an adequate response?

By looking at institutions, sociotechnical systems, and the wider context of science, the field of Science, Technology, and Society has developed tools that are useful in addressing this issue. Please join us on Monday, October 15, for a brief presentation on some of these approaches and an introduction to the field, cosponsored by the Bard Center for Environmental Policy. 

On Friday, October 19, in conjunction with the Bard Office of Sustainability and EUS, we will also be presenting one promising approach to the problem via a live feed of the Omega Institute’s Project Drawdown workshop, a project “modeling the 100 most effective ways to draw down greenhouse gas emissions” (Preston Theater, 7:30 pm).

Cider and dessert will be served!

Things Look Different from the Passenger Seat: How Will Autonomous Vehicles Change Our World?

Dr. Jeremy Martin
Senior Scientist,
Union of Concerned Scientists' Clean Vehicles Program
Olin, Room 102  The century of the automobile is rapidly coming to a close, as three simultaneous revolutions replace gasoline with electricity, driving with autonomous operation, and car ownership with transportation purchased as a service. Major changes in our transportation system will doubtless bring changes to our economy, our opportunities to associate or segregate ourselves, and our environment. Whether these changes are for better or worse depends upon the progress of social norms, business practices, and laws and regulations at federal, state and local levels. With policy makers in Washington and Albany, tech leaders in the Silicon Valley, and car companies in Detroit plainly not up to the task, positive change will require engaged citizens guided by a clear vision for the future they want and demand.

A Girl's Period... No Longer the End of Her Potential

Bard CEP Distinguished Alumni Lecture with Dr. Liita-Iyaloo Cairney, BA/MS '08
Blithewood, Levy Institute  Please join us for a lecture by Bard CEP alum Dr. Liita-Iyaloo Cairney, BA/MS '08, at Blithewood Manor. 

Lecture: "Koree: Enhancing Individual Capabilities through the Application of Disciplined Entrepreneurship"
The lecture examines the intellectual and entrepreneurial journey that led Liita to invent the Koree menstrual hygiene device and education framework. It also reflects on how Liita's approach to commercializing the Koree product is influenced and guided by the ideas of Amartya Sen and Bill Aulet.

Biography: Liita-Iyaloo Cairney was born in Namibia. She graduated with a BA in natural sciences (with a concentration in biology) and an MS in environmental policy from Bard College. Soon after graduating with her master’s degree from the Bard Center for Environmental Policy, Cairney was employed by the Population Council in New York City. She worked in the Poverty, Gender, and Youth Division on projects that sought to financially and socially empower adolescent girls worldwide. Cairney’s time at the Population Council convinced her to pursue a PhD at the University of Edinburgh. She founded Kalitasha Ltd. and invented the Koree product in 2013, while earning her PhD in international public health policy. Through the Koree menstrual hygiene device and associated education framework (firstperiod.org), she seeks to empower young women by developing solutions to health problems that limit their individual, social, and political capabilities (Amartya Sen). Cairney lives in Edinburgh, Scotland, with her husband and son.

From Bard to Successful Social Entrepreneur 

A Conversation with Dr. Liita-Iyaloo Cairney, BA/MS '08
Kline, Faculty Dining Room  Bard alumna Dr. Liita-Iyaloo Cairney, BA/MS '08 is a girls and women reproductive health entrepreneur. She is the Founder and Director of Kalitasha, a company that is committed to helping girls in the developing world stay in school after their first period. Liita developed the Koree -- a unique, ergonomically designed, externally worn, re-usable feminine hygiene product which will go a long way in solving period poverty across the globe. Koree is designed for adolescent girls and was created to give them the physical and psychological security they need everyday of their period.

We are thrilled to have Liita join us on campus to speak with students about her journey from her undergraduate and Master's studies here at Bard, to earning a Ph.D, and becoming a leader in the field of social entrepreneurship. Students from all majors are invited to attend this lunchtime conversation to hear about Liita's work and experiences.

The Invisible Animal: The Morality of Sacrifice and Interspecies Care in Experimental Lab Science

Lesley A. Sharp
Reem-Kayden Center Laszlo Z. Bito '60 Auditorium 
Barbara Chamberlain & Helen Chamberlain Josefsberg ’30 Professor of Anthropology
Barnard College


If animal death is a frequent, and inevitable, consequence of much experimentation in laboratory science, how do human personnel understand the morality of their work? How, in turn, might anthropological understandings of death, mourning, and sacrifice facilitate our efforts to answer this question? This talk draws on data derived from long-term ethnographic research on human-animal encounters in experimental science, with a special interest in the consequences of the invisibility of animals, of human labor, and of associated lab-based practices. Whereas a focus on ethical regulations may help one root out adherence to mandated welfare practices, heeding serendipitous and innovative behaviors opens up a rich terrain where one may encounter the obscured dimensions of everyday morality and the meaning of care.

Conservation of Urban Biodiversity –
We Can Do Better

Erik Kiviat, Cofounder and Executive Director of Hudsonia
RKC 111 
Urban environments contain greenspaces that support many wild species, including uncommon and rare plants and animals. Many cities have overtaken biologically important coastal and other areas, and city greenspaces are the only places where many people experience nature and wildlife. Environmental decisions in urban areas have substantial impacts on biodiversity. Hudsonia’s Biodiversity Assessment Handbook for New York City (2013) described important habitats and species, and proposed methods for assessing and protecting them. We are now completing synthesis for the nearby New Jersey Meadowlands that indicates the importance of landscape permeability and habitat quality for colonizing species. Results facilitate protection of extant biodiversity in cities, conservation of rural biodiversity during urbanization, and planning for preservation, management, and restoration of urban habitats.

Erik Kiviat is a cofounder and executive director of Hudsonia, and formerly taught natural history and environmental studies at Bard College. He holds a B.S. in natural sciences from Bard College, an M.A. in biology from the State University of New York at New Paltz, and a Ph.D. in ecology from the Union Institute. Erik has been interested in the urban biota since living in Manhattan as a high school student in the 1960s. He has studied biodiversity in New York City, northeastern New Jersey, and other urban and industrial landscapes intensively since 2000. With Elizabeth Johnson, he created the Biodiversity Assessment Handbook for New York City in 2013. Erik also conducts research on wetland habitats, biota associated with nonnative weeds, turtles and other herpetofauna, and human ecology, within and outside cities.

Spun Dry: Mobility, Morbidity, and Jurisdiction in Northern Australia

Daniel Fisher
Associate Professor of Anthropology
University of California, Berkeley
Olin, Room 102 
This paper pursues an ethnographic account of intra-Indigenous relations and jurisdictional contest in urban northern Australia. Its narrative explores the relationship between Aboriginal community policing and emergent forms and figures of urban mobility and morbidity in Darwin, capital of Australia’s Northern Territory. While Darwin’s Indigenous patrols have no police powers, and its officers disavow any authority as ‘‘police,’’ they do have a certain status vested in them by the traditional owners of the country on which they patrol. Their Aboriginal-directed efforts thus entail both an assertion of Indigenous jurisdiction and an accompanying reflexivity about the substance and limits of its reach—limits informed by settler colonial oversight, by the diversity of Indigenous claims to urban space, and by poetic figures and mediatized narratives that trope the volatility of Aboriginal dispersal and displacement. The paper explores the ways patrols negotiate their authority and reckon its limits, extending a local poetics jurisdiction and movement to illuminate the new urban worlds they traverse.
