May 25 noon–2:00 p.m.
Erb Memorial Union (EMU), Redwood Room

Join the Center for Global Health and assistant professor of sociology and author Krystale Littlejohn as she discusses her book, Just Get on the Pill: The Uneven Burden of Reproductive Politics.

"In Just Get on the Pill, a keenly researched and incisive examination, Krystale Littlejohn investigates how birth control becomes a fundamentally unbalanced and gendered responsibility. She uncovers how parents, peers, partners, and providers draw on narratives of male and female birth control methods to socialize cisgender women into sex and ultimately into shouldering the burden for preventing pregnancy.

Littlejohn draws on extensive interviews to document this gendered compulsory birth control—a phenomenon in which people who give birth are held accountable for preventing and resolving pregnancies in gender-constrained ways."

Refreshments will be provided. The first 20 people will receive a free copy of the book.

May 25 noon

“Otro Mundo Posible: Environmentalist Activism and Agroecology in El Salvador”: The current global climate crisis is causing devastating fires, unprecedented temperatures, and increasingly dangerous weather patterns that threaten the world’s biodiversity and human survival, especially the most marginalized communities. El Salvador is situated within the Central American Dry Corridor, a region in a decades-long drought caused by centuries of colonization and unsustainable monoculture. Many Salvadoran people, who for centuries have relied on sustenance farming, can no longer count on the land to provide food. Drought and flood patterns reshape and destroy farmlands, and those situated on mountainsides are at risk of landslides and flooding. The history of land redistribution in El Salvador is rooted in colonization, Indigenous erasure, state violence, and leftist organizing during the Civil War (1980-1992). With this history as the foundation, this presentation examines a network of environmental activists in El Salvador who work in various sectors throughout the country to create and live a new vision for their future through food sovereignty, access to water, organic and sustainable agriculture, defense of land and territory from extractivist projects, and reimagining and reviving ancestral cosmovisions.

Presented by the Center for the Study of Women in Society.

Let’s Talk is a service that provides easy access to free, informal, and confidential one-on-one consultation with a Counseling Services staff member. See our website for six additional Let’s Talk days/times offered throughout the week.

Let’s Talk is especially helpful for students who:


Have a specific concern and would like to consult with someone about it.
Would like on-the-spot consultation rather than ongoing counseling.
Would like to consult with a CS staff member about what actual therapy looks like.
Would like to meet with one of our CS identity-based specialists.
Have a concern about a friend or family member and would like some ideas about what to do.


 

How does Let’s Talk work?

Let’s Talk will be offered via Zoom and/or in satellite locations across campus. As a drop-in service, there is no need to schedule an appointment and no paperwork to be completed. Students are seen individually on a first-come, first-served basis at the times listed below. There may be a wait in the Zoom waiting room if the Let’s Talk staff member is meeting with another student. Please wait and we will be with you as soon as we can. Let’s Talk appointments are brief (usually between 15-30 minutes) and are meant to be used on an as-needed basis.

Many Nations Longhouse

Please join Virginia Beavert, Shayleen EagleSpeaker, Michelle Jacob, and Joana Jansen for a discussion of their new book Anakú Iwachá: Yakama Legends and Stories. Central to the Yakama oral tradition, storytelling enables Tribal Elders to share lessons, values, and customs with younger generations across the Columbia River plateau and the Pacific Northwest. Drawn from a time before the coming of human beings when animals were like people, the stories present characters and motifs that paint a bigger picture of the world as Yakama ancestors knew it.

The original edition of Anakú Iwachá featured stories that Yakama Tribal Elders recorded in several dialects of the Ichishkíin language that were collected and translated into English by renowned linguist and scholar Virginia Beavert. This new edition adds a preface from the Yakama Nation and essays on the history of the project and on Ichishkíin-language education. It includes four additional legends in Ichishkíin and English, annotations, an updated glossary, and more artwork by Tribal artists, helping readers, teachers, and students engage with the legends as teaching and learning tools and as a precious gift to current and future Yakama generations.

A book signing will follow the presentation.

This is a hybrid event. Join us in person at the Many Nations Longhouse or over Zoom (meeting ID 971 8799 4068).

Work-in-Progress talk with Emily Eliza Scott, Environmental Studies and History of Art and Architecture, and 2021–22 OHC Faculty Research Fellow.

This chapter of my monograph, Uneven Geology: Notes from the Field of Contemporary Art, examines art about air pollution, including the asymmetrical nature of its production, distribution, and effects. More broadly, the book—at the intersection of contemporary art history, critical geography, environmental humanities, and Anthropocene studies—explores art and design practices that track environmental violence as it is writ into land, air, and water. It asks how aesthetic practices help make largely invisible processes more sensible and legible, even while t
