Taking its critical cue from New Orleans’s unique liminal position on the Gulf Coast, "Water logics" starts from the shoreline as a threshold, as a point of departure away from land. Beyond the shore, where land meets water, how can water and bodies of water be conceived? To what forms of thought, art, literature, or politics do they give shape? The Gulf Coast’s porosity blurs the very notion of the shore as a cartographic threshold point: the land emerges from water and yet is immersed in water, infiltrated by it.

The Newcomb Art Department presents the 2019 Stern Lecture, "From Land and Water to Text and Object: Porcelain Cultures of the Eighteenth Century," by Nancy Um, professor of art history at Binghamton University. 

 

The Stern Lecture is the Newcomb Art Department’s oldest endowed lecture in art history. First presented in 1999, the Stern lecture was established by Harriet and Bill Rosenthal in honor Harriet’s father Henry Stern, a renowned antiques dealer in the French Quarter.

“The varsity Sport for the Mind,”  FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) combines the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology. Under strict rules, limited resources, and time limits, teams of 25 students or more are challenged to raise funds, design a team “brand,” hone teamwork skills, and build and program robots to perform prescribed tasks against a field of competitors.  It’s as close to “real-world engineering” as a student can get. Volunteer professional mentors lend their time and talents to guide each team.

The 2019 APHC conference will explore social justice education and practice in the health professions across the U.S. and internationally. Social justice is emphasized as a key value in the 2002 Charter on Medical Professionalism, the 2017 Code of Ethics for Social Work, and included within the 2015 Code of Ethics for Nursing. What does our experience with healthcare in the 21st century tell us about successes, failures, and opportunities in embracing social justice as a professional value? What is our path moving forward?
