Event Image Just Transition Conference (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The Just Transition Conference: Communicating Power in an Age of Climactic Change, the 2016-17 WFI symposium, will be held April 7-9, 2017 at Villanova University and is co-sponsored by BoulderTalks and the Waterhouse Family Institute. 

BoulderTalks is a center of the Department of Communication in the College of Media, Communication and Information at the University of Colorado Boulder.

About The Just Transition Conference: In these times, our only guarantee is that nothing is going to remain the same. This may give pause for feelings of pre-loss, fear, and anxiety about our own ecological precarity, as well as anger about how crises often are mobilized to exacerbate already existing patterns of political inequity. It also might inspire us to imagine how we can re-energize new power relations, create opportunities for political revolutions, and imagine a future worth striving towards. 

“Just transition” is a term developed by labor and climate justice movements to advocate the idea that the major transformation we are undergoing from a global fossil fuel carbon-based economy to a renewable energy economy should incorporate ecological and social justice. Advocates imagine this conjuncture not just as a retreat from a whole way of life, but also an opportunity to reassess and re-energize local and global cultural regimes of value. 

We welcome any and all submissions that will address these pressing and vital issues of social justice. More information? Please consult our CFP and/or contact the WFI Director.

11:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Home: American photography at the CU Art Museum
March 2 - July 15, 2017

Is home “where the heart is”? Is it a building, a landscape or a state of mind? Drawn from the photography collection of the CU Art Museum, Home investigates how American photographers working from the late 1800s to today have engaged with these questions. Through a presentation of landscapes, family photos and candid portraits visitors are invited to consider central themes of the exhibition, including environment, nostalgia and family.

What does home mean to you?
We invite our guests to respond to the images and ideas presented in the exhibition by visiting a special programming space in our FlexSpace gallery, open from February 2, 2017–March 25, 2017.

This exhibition is generously supported by CU-Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

ICS Colloquium - Anna Spain Bradley
12:00 PM - 2:00 PM

April 7, 2017
12-2PM
Muen D428/430


Anna Spain Bradley
Associate Professor of Law; Assistant Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs and Diversity; University of Colorado Law School

Title: The Impact of One - How Individual Choice Shapes International Law

Abstract: International law is the product of decisions taken by nations that consent to a treaty or conform to an international norm. But international law is also a product of the choices certain individuals, empowered by their governments, make. It is formed when diplomats negotiate treaties on behalf of sovereign states. It is interpreted when international judges reach a groundbreaking judicial opinion. It is expanded when those who sit on the Security Council agree to authorize military intervention to prevent genocide. In this way, international law is more than institutional decisions. It is also the result of individual choices made by one, or a handful of people, on behalf of many. These few individuals, be they selected or elected, exercise commanding yet often concealed control over the course of international law. The Impact of One: How Individual Choice Shapes International Law is an exploration of individual choice in international law.

The book charts important decision moments about challenging situations made by international institutions within the United Nations. It analyzes the role that particular individuals, serving as judges at the International Court of Justice or representatives at the U.N. Security Council, play in shaping decision outcomes that influence and are influenced by international law. The book applies insights from neuroscience to assert the importance of analyzing decision-making from a cognitive perspective about how factors like emotion and empathy can influence how people make choices. It integrates this investigation into the neurobiology of human choice with existing discourses about international law and state behavior. Drawing upon historical accounts and personal interviews, The Impact of One reveals the struggle, calculation and unconscious influences that factor into decision-making at the highest level. This analysis aims to reveal the connection between institutional decisions taken under the imprimatur of law and the people privileged to make them. For example, we readily accept that international judges are qualified to apply the law to the facts of a case but rarely question how their emotions about that case might affect their cognitive functions implicated in deciding. We understand that law, in the form of Article 42 of the U.N. Charter, permits the Security Council to authorize forceful intervention into a nation in conflict but fail to appreciate how a representative’s own history and bias might influence her vote. By clarifying the distinction between institutional choice and individual choice, The Impact of One humanizes international legal decision-making, illustrating how law is shaped by the people empowered to make it. In turn, individual choice is influenced by an array of factors from emotion to empathy that influence cognitive functions like reasoning and memory. In understanding international law through this lens of individual choice, The Impact of One calls for deeper analysis and critique of how institutions settle on who gets to decide matters of global impact and importance. Ultimately, The Impact of One aims to deepen readers’ understanding about the realities of human choice, its flaws, its potential and its instrumental role in influencing international law. The conclusion is both disruptive and meaningful - who decides matters - especially at the centers of international power and authority.

All colloquia take place on Friday from 12:00 to 2:00 pm (unless otherwise noted) in Room D428 and D430 on the fourth floor of the Muenzinger Psychology Building.

If you have questions, please call the ICS Office at 303-492-5063.

APPM Department Colloquium - Carlos Martins Filho
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Carlos Martins Filho, Department of Economics, University of Colorado Boulder

Unified estimation of densities on bounded and unbounded domains.

Kernel density estimation in domains with boundaries is known to suffer from undesirable boundary effects.  We show that in the case of smooth densities, a general and elegant approach is to extend the density and estimate its extension.  The resulting estimators in domains with boundaries have biases and variances expressed in terms of density extensions.  The result is that they have the same rates at boundary and interior points of the domain.  Contrary to the extant literature, our estimators require no kernel modification near the boundary and kernels commonly used for estimation on the real line can be applied.  Densities defined on the half-axis and in a unit interval are considered. The results are applied to estimation of densities that are discontinuous or have discontinuous derivatives, where they yield the same rates of convergence as for smooth densities on R.

Public Talk: Troubling Time/s and Ecologies of Nothingness
4:00 PM - 6:30 PM

In this public talk, Karen Barad (professor of feminist studies, philosophy and history of consciousness at UC Santa Cruz) diffractively reads insights from quantum theory and Kyoko Hayashi’s first-hand accounts of the Nagasaki bombing through one another, bringing to the fore a troubling of scalar distinctions between the world of subatomic particles and that of colonialism, war and environmental destruction. Attempting to think through what possibilities remain open for an embodied re-membering of the past against the colonialist practices of erasure and the related desire to set time aright, Barad calls for thinking a certain undoing of time, a work of mourning accountable to those most profoundly affected by ongoing ecological destruction and by racist, colonialist and nationalist violence, human and otherwise.

A thousand years ago, the Ancestral Puebloans built a complex and extensive civilization in the mountains and deserts of the Southwest US. They left behind extraordinary art and architecture which reflect their intimate relationship with the land, the sun, the moon and stars. Our project combines the scholarly, artistic and technological expertise of the University of Colorado, Boulder. Our team includes astronomers and archaeologists who have made some of the most important discoveries in these regions. Our production team at Fiske Planetarium uses forefront technology to create high-resolution full-dome environments which will immerse our audiences in the stunning landscapes, archaeological sites and under starry skies. This educational experience will combine ancient knowledge and modern technology to explore the universal connection between humans and the skies.

This creatively staged play is a raw, realistic exploration of the challenges and struggles of everyday women. In 1935 New England, Fefu invites seven of her friends over to gossip and plan a charity presentation, but the day quickly unravels when one of the women is found dead. “Fefu and Her Friends” stands out in the world of theater thanks to its all-female cast, intimate staging and timely observation of gender roles in society.
