Addressing Challenging Situations in the Classroom

Anna Spain, Associate Professor of Law

This workshop will explore common challenges that faculty and students face in the classroom context. The workshop aims to raise examples and explore best practices. For example, a student questions your authority as professor in front of the class, what should you do? You are teaching material dealing with difficult issues (such as discrimination or aspects of identity such as gender or race), how can you best engage your students? A student faces personal challenges that are affecting his or her performance in class, what can you do and what must you do? This workshop will engage these and other common challenges and provide participants with a framework for understanding what is taking place and how you can best respond given your identity and the identity of those involved. The workshop is interactive. All are welcome. PREREGISTRATION REQUIRED THROUGH FTEP—to register, click here:

Hopper Bands: Locust Aggregation

Locust swarms cause famine and hunger in parts of Sub-Saharan Africa as they travel across croplands and eat vegetation. Current models start with biological properties of locusts and analyze the macroscopic behavior of the system. These models exhibit the desired migratory behavior, but do so with too many parameters. To account for this, a new model, the Alignment and Intermittent Motion (AIM) model, is derived with minimal assumptions. AIM is constructed with regards to locust biology, allowing it to elicit biologically correct locust behavior: the most noteworthy being the fingering of hopper bands. A Particle-in-Cell method is used to optimize simulations, allowing for trials of up to 106 particles over reasonable timescales. We analyze the shapes of these swarms, note the similarities between simulations of large and small swarms, and propose possible methods for analyzing simulation metrics.

CompSci Colloquium: Roya Ensafi (Princeton)
3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Safeguarding Users from Adversarial Networks

ABSTRACT: ISPs and governments are increasingly interfering with users’ online activities, through behaviors that range from censorship and surveillance to content injection, traffic throttling and violations of net neutrality. Ensafi's research aims to safeguard users from network interference by building tools to measure, understand and defend against it. In this talk, she will present Spooky Scan, a measurement technique based on TCP/IP side channels that remotely detects specific types of interference almost anywhere on the Internet. In contrast to previous approaches — which rely on volunteers in censored regions to deploy custom hardware or software — Spooky Scan achieves significantly better coverage, lower costs and reduced risk to volunteers. She is working to deploy Spooky Scan and related techniques in Censored Planet, a system for continuously monitoring global Internet censorship.

Ensafi will also describe two studies on the Great Firewall of China (GFW). The first study explores how the GFW finds hidden circumvention tools; the second discovered a new packet injection attack carried out by the GFW. These studies can ultimately inform public policy discussions and improve censorship circumvention tools. By uncovering network interference, we can hold ISPs, governments and other network intermediaries accountable, and develop better technical approaches for keeping users safe.

BIO: Roya Ensafi is a postdoctoral fellow at Princeton University. Her research focuses on security and privacy, with an emphasis on designing techniques and systems to protect users from hostile networks. She won the 2016 Applied Networking Research Prize from the Internet Research Task Force (IRTF) for her research on the Great Firewall of China. While earning her PhD at the University of New Mexico, she received the PhD Dissertation Distinction Award, Best Graduate Student Mentor Award and Sigma Xi Research Excellence Award. She is a native of Birjand, Iran, and enjoys climbing, biking and basketball.

Event Image The Kiowa Odyssey: Evidence of Historical Relationships among Pueblo, Fremont, and Northwest Plains
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

A detail of North American prehistory that has long puzzled anthropologists is how the Kiowa speech community ended up on the Southern Plains, given that Kiowa is related to the Tanoan languages of the US Southwest. In this paper, we present a variety of linguistic, ethnographic, archaeological, and rock art evidence which suggest: 1) Proto-Kiowa-Tanoan was spoken in Late Archaic, Eastern Basketmaker, and Early Fremont sites on the Colorado Plateau; 2) Kiowan diverged from Proto-Tanoan prior to the Basketmaker III period; 3) Kiowa was among the languages spoken in Eastern Fremont sites; 4) Kiowa-speaking peoples migrated from the Fremont area to the Northwest Plains around 1300 CE; and 5) Kiowa people moved from the Yellowstone area to the Southern Plains by the early 19th century. This hypothesis suggests that Pueblo and Fremont peoples share threads of common heritage and that contemporary Kiowa people may have affiliations with certain Fremont and Northwest Plains sites.

Event Image References to Salvador Dalí Make Me Hot
7:30 PM

José Rivera’s “References to Salvador Dali Make Me Hot” is a gripping, fantastical story told with Dali-esque magical realism. Gabriela is uprooted from the South Bronx when her husband, Benito, is stationed in the middle of the desert after the Persian Gulf war. She confides in her only friends, the Moon, Coyote, Cat and her next-door neighbor Martin. The real and the imaginary come together to tell a story of one woman’s lofty dreams to be freed from her stifling, mundane life.
