  • Since the turn of the twentieth century, middle-class Americans have considered the thin body—ostensibly the result of self-control and self-discipline—a moral imperative and a symbol of good citizenship. Today fat studies scholars are challenging negative stereotypes about fatness by showing their roots in racism, patriarchy, and capitalism. In this empowering lunchtime talk, Jenny Dolan will introduce participants to the field of fat studies by discussing some of her current research projects: a cultural history of “willpower” and a feminist analysis of “feeling fat” on Twitter. Lunch will be served!

    Jenny Dolan is a PhD student in the American Studies program at Brown University. Working at the intersection of cultural history and the history of science, Jenny studies the relationship between science and self-improvement in the twentieth century U.S. She will be teaching an undergraduate course at Brown entitled “Self-Help, Science, and the Pursuit of Happiness.” Her personal essay about the dark side of optimism was recently published in the Modern Love column of the New York Times. Find out more about Jenny and her research on her website.

    BSHS Dissertation Defense: Sylvia Shangani

    “Engagement in HIV Prevention and Treatment Among Key Populations in Kenya”

    In sub-Saharan Africa, HIV incidence rates continue to rise among female sex workers, men who have sex with men, and people who use drugs. Yet these key population groups have the least access to prevention, care and treatment services. There are concerted policy efforts, notably the UNAIDS 90-90-90 initiative, to eliminate HIV by 2030. The success of such ambitious goals hinges on critical questions of why key populations are not benefiting sufficiently from HIV interventions. This dissertation aimed to advance our understanding of the degree of, and barriers to, engagement in HIV prevention and care among key populations, using data from Kenya. Results have implications for interventions designed to meet the needs of vulnerable populations in order to eliminate HIV in high-burden societies.

    WTF is happening right now? What does COVID-19 mean for the life of capitalism?

What strategies of trans and queer economic empowerment can we draw upon in this moment of crisis? If you have questions like this OR you just want to discuss coronavirus, anti-capitalism, trans/queerness, come thru to QuAC on April 16th from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM. This week’s discussion topic, “The Virus is Capitalism.”

    Queers Against Capitalism is a bi-weekly study group open to all students interested in exploring queer and anti-capitalist thought. Our goals are (1) to deepen our understandings of queer and anti-capitalist theory in a way that is accessible and not saturated with jargon, (2) to apply queer and anti-capitalist theory to our lives as students at the university, and (3) to create space for community organizers to work through ideas and strategies relevant to their organizing. Each meeting we’ll have a topic and some materials to ground our discussion. At the end of each meeting, we’ll take some time to decide what materials and themes to center in the upcoming meeting. There will be snacks!


    Thursdays, 6:00-7:30 PM | 3/5, 3/19, 4/2, 4/16, 4/30 | in the LGBTQ Center, Room 323, Stephen Robert ’62 Campus Center

    The Center for Sexual Pleasure and Health (The CSPH) is a Providence-based nonprofit organization that envisions a world where pleasure is viewed as an integral part of health and where adults can talk about sexuality while feeling comfortable and supported. In this two hour workshop, The CSPH’s Cheylsea Federle will demonstrate how three components of sexuality — pleasure, health, and education — are interconnected through the lens of advocacy. Through interactive discussion centered on sex education and sexual freedom, participants will explore topics such as the circles of sexuality, self-love, and the multiple intersections that complicate and inform our sexual experiences.

    What Does it Mean to be Radical?

    For anti-war activist, scholar, and teacher, Margo Okazawa-Rey, “there is no freedom without connection and there is no connection without freedom.” How do we work towards freedom by building connections? Join Margo as she speaks about how radical politics means leaning into our contradictions, tapping into our collective yearnings, and generatively struggling around a common vision that allows us all to grow and get free.

  • It is generally accepted that if one has harmed another, specific steps are needed to repair the harm: specific unconditional acknowledgment of harm; expression of regret; honest and sincere apology; and behavior change. How do we repair harm done to others or to ourselves? How can faith or spirituality help? What role does justice play? How do regret, remorse, repentance, contrition and shame fit in? What about the traditional religious concepts of sin and confession? When can one forgive or pardon? Where does one go to seek forgiveness? Is reconciliation possible? Where can we find mercy and love when we feel undeserving? When should we overlook the transgressions of others or ourselves?

    We will provide a few short passages from the writings of the Baha’i Faith, and encourage others to bring contributions from their own background.

  • Please join Diana Winston ’88 on Sunday, March 15th from 11 am - 5 pm at the Brown/RISD Hillel, Goldfarb Social Hall (80 Brown St.) for a workshop, “Mindfulness Approaches to Working with Anxiety.” 

    Who is not anxious these days? Whether faced with the daily stresses of school, responsibilities, family, or the ongoing anxiety of political events and ecological crisis, most of us are anxious. In the US, anxiety rates have risen to 18% of the population. Mindfulness, while not a cure, offers incredible tools and practices to work with anxiety. A consistent daily practice can create opportunities for self-regulation and self-awareness. We can then learn to approach anxiety and other difficult emotions with compassion and awareness. Mindfulness also offers tools to address catastrophizing and anxiety-provoking distorted thinking. Additionally, we can use mindfulness to “enlist the wisdom mind” to work cognitively with anxiety on the spot, and then cultivate positive states that offset fearful thinking. Finally, we can explore how these practices might take us “beyond fear” and into places of fearlessness.

    Diana Winston ’88 is the Director of Mindfulness Education at UCLA’s Mindful Awareness Research Center. She is the author of The Little Book of Being, Wide Awake: A Buddhist Guide for Teens, and the co-author of Fully Present: The Science, Art and Practice of Mindfulness. She has taught mindfulness for health and well-being since 1999 in a range of settings including in healthcare, universities, businesses, non-profits, and schools in the US and internationally. She created the evidence-based Mindful Awareness Practices Program (MAPs), is the founding director of UCLA’s Training in Mindfulness Facilitation, and is a founding board member of the International Mindfulness Teachers Association. The LA Times calls her one of the nation’s best-known teachers of mindfulness.” You can find her on the UCLA Mindful app, the Ten percent happier app, at www.uclahealth.org/marc and www.dianawinston.com
