W. Eaton, Philosophy Department, delivers a lecture as 2017-2018 Institute for the Humanities Faculty Fellow. <br />This paper is about pictures. My focus is not the usual philosophical questions about how pictures represent, or how to conceive of their depictive content. Instead, I am interested in the moral character of pictures. What makes a picture the proper object of moral judgment in the first place? In virtue of which features can we judge a picture to be, for instance, racist or sexist or ableist? I develop an account of the morality of pictures that focuses on how they shape their audiences' affective life (including feelings, desires, and pleasures). To this end I outline a model of pictorial rhetoric as that cluster of features in virtue of which pictures can be said to have a moral character, and I consider the application of this model to areas as seemingly diverse as pornography, advertising, high art, and propaganda.<br />A reception will follow. <br /> <br /> lvavra@uic.edu http://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?&amp;dispatch=search&amp;detailed_view=1&amp;uid=20170810T162732Z-10ffff0-3e8-65e99526-Oracle Tue, 13 Mar 2018 14:24:48 -0000 Fight Against Breast Cancer http://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?&amp;dispatch=search&amp;detailed_view=1&amp;uid=20180129T230921Z-217ed6f-3e8-1cb45a1c-Oracle <p>Date: <a href="http://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?&amp;dispatch=datesearch&amp;date=2-28-2018">February 28, 2018</a> | <a href="https://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?&amp;&amp;dispatch=invite&amp;id=20180129T230921Z-217ed6f-3e8-1cb45a1c-Oracle">Add event to my UICal</a> <br />Category: <a href="http://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?dispatch=search&amp;search=%22Health+and+Medical%22">Health and Medical</a>, Other </p> Fight Against Breast Cancer <br />Dr. Tracy Baynard in the department of Kinesiology and Nutrition at UIC is conducting a research study to investigate how brief aerobic exercise affects arterial (large blood vessel) function, particularly in breast cancer survivors. If you are female between 30-55 years of age, who is a breast cancer survivor (or who has not had cancer but is willing to volunteer as a control), you may be eligible to participate. The research involves two study visits to the Integrative Physiology Lab for cardiovascular testing. All participants will be compensated.

Farnsworth Lecture. This year's speaker is Dr. Jon Clardy. He will be giving a lecture titled: Molecular Diversity and Other Lessons from Natural Products.<br />Dr. Clardy obtained his BS degree from Yale University and his PhD from Harvard University - both in chemistry. He has served on the Chemistry Department faculties of Iowa State University and Cornell University, and he is currently the Hsien Wu & Daisy Yen Wu Professor of Biological Chemistry and Molecular Pharmacology at Harvard Medical School. His research has focused on naturally occurring biologically active small molecules, their macromolecular targets, and their roles in biology and medicine. His current interests involve the molecular underpinnings of complex symbiotic systems involving both prokaryotes and eukaryotes, bacterial influences on animal and plant development, bacterial communications, and the human gut microbiome. <br />The lecture will be broadcast to the Rockford campus Rm E223.<br /> dfox4@uic.edu http://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?&amp;dispatch=search&amp;detailed_view=1&amp;uid=20180227T152019Z-10c26f3-3e8-57510278-Oracle Tue, 27 Feb 2018 09:20:16 -0000 The State of Our Water: An Overview of the Most Critical Issues Facing Water in Illinois http://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?&amp;dispatch=search&amp;detailed_view=1&amp;uid=20180227T180410Z-10e6dca-3e8-50ebe643-Oracle <p>Date: <a href="http://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?&amp;dispatch=datesearch&amp;date=3-22-2018">March 22, 2018</a> at 8:00 am | <a href="https://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?&amp;&amp;dispatch=invite&amp;id=20180227T180410Z-10e6dca-3e8-50ebe643-Oracle">Add event to my UICal</a> <br />Category: <a href="http://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?dispatch=search&amp;search=%22Sustainability+Events%22">Sustainability Events</a>, <a href="http://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?dispatch=search&amp;search=%22Lectures,+Seminars+and+Meetings+%22">Lectures, Seminars and Meetings </a> </p> As lakes, rivers and streams thaw, come learn how to protect them.<br />Illinois has bountiful water assets that face significant future challenges.

It is transforming our views of old age, the composition of LGBTQ communities, and the field of gerontology.<br />I address the questions: What is like to be Gayby Boomer, e.g., a gay man of the Baby Boomer generation? And what are the implications of Gayby Boomers' aging for gerontology?<br />This research draws on ethnographic research (e.g., in-depth interviews and participant observation) with a group of men Gayby Boomers: White, African American, Latino, and HIV-positive and negative in Chicago.<br />I argue that older gay men are trapped between expressing who they are and the stigma towards gender nonconformity, age, and HIV/AIDS (and race, for some), as they have been for the last 40 years. Yet, they are creating structures to define life as an older gay person. One participant noted, "My generation probably lost a lot of people, but the ones of us that are left are sort of defining what it means to be older because we are out." While the recent visibility of the older gay men is an important step against discrimination, it has reinforced (heterosexual) norms about aging and masculinity that might, unintentionally, create undue stress on gay men. This is partly due to gerontology's heteronormative notions about old age.<br />I further suggest that older age is being transformed, "queered," and the field of gerontology must follow that change.<br /> lvavra@uic.edu http://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?&amp;dispatch=search&amp;detailed_view=1&amp;uid=20180313T153321Z-206351b-3e8-2def7ea9-Oracle Tue, 13 Mar 2018 10:33:20 -0000 Interested in your Vascular Health?

In recent years, his interests have expanded to include the underlying mechanisms by which flaws in microtubule-related proteins contribute to neurodegenerative diseases. Dr. Baa's work has been recognized worldwide, and consistently funded for over two decades by federal agencies (NIH, NSF, DOD) as well as private foundations with missions related to treating neurodegenerative diseases and nerve injury.<br /><br><b>Friday, March 30, 2018 at 1:30 PM</b><br />College of Medicine Research Building<br />Room 8175<br />909 S Wolcott Ave<br /><br><i>Host: Gerardo Morfini, Ph.D.</i><br /><br>For more information, please contact the Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology at 312-996-6791 or anatomy@uic.edu.<br /><br><b>* * * * * * * * * *</b><br /> sydelleb@uic.edu http://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?&amp;dispatch=search&amp;detailed_view=1&amp;uid=20180321T174734Z-40d9044-3e8-10ba8f09-Oracle Wed, 21 Mar 2018 12:47:33 -0000
