Faculty author series at Widener

first_imgHow will this generation shape issues of race in society? What can the retina tells us about brain functions? What’s the meaning of life?These are some of the questions Professors John Dowling, Jennifer Hochschild, and Jill Lepore have investigated, if not answered, in their books, questions they will further explore, and raise with students, through a series of book talks to be held in the Widener Library rotunda beginning this week.Harvard College Dean Evelynn M. Hammonds is sponsoring the series, in conjunction with the Undergraduate Council (UC) and Harvard College Library (HCL).“Working with the UC and HCL, I wanted to create additional opportunities outside the classroom for undergraduates to hear directly from — and to engage with — Harvard faculty members about their research and scholarship,” said Hammonds, the Barbara Gutmann Rosenkrantz Professor of the History of Science and of African and African American Studies.Hochschild, the Henry LaBarre Jayne Professor of Government and professor of African and African-American studies, will present the first book talk on Wednesday, beginning at 6 p.m. The talk is open to anyone with a Harvard ID; seating is first come, first served.“When I was a student, I liked seeing my faculty and interacting with them in a different context. I think there is something very interesting about that,” said Hochschild. “And for me, this is a setting where I can be a little less professorial, and maybe ask different questions and give the students, the audience, a little more room to think about the possible answers.”Hochschild will discuss her book “Creating a New Racial Order: How Immigration, Multiracialism, Genomics, and the Young Can Remake Race in America,” which she co-authored with Vesla Weaver and Traci Burch. The book analyzes changes in the U.S. racial order since the late 20th century.“I wanted to create additional opportunities outside the classroom for undergraduates to hear directly from — and to engage with — Harvard faculty members about their research and scholarship,” said College Dean Evelynn M. Hammonds, who is sponsoring the series in conjunction with the Undergraduate Council and Harvard College Library.

However, that does not mean they live in a post-racial society, she said.“The crucial question is, if we are not in that [civil rights] era, which we profoundly are not, and we are not in a post-racial society, then where are we?” she asked. “Race continues to matter, inequality persists, and while the old forms of inequality have been wiped out, if you had to describe what would the racial order look like in the next decade, what are the most salient characteristics? The book tries to look at that through immigration, multiracialism, genomics, and the young generation.”Lepore, the David Woods Kemper ’41 Professor of American History, Harvard College professor, and chair of Harvard’s history and literature program, has followed the echo of the age-old question: What is the meaning of life?“Most questions about life and death have no answers: What does it mean? What happens when we die?” Lepore, author of “The Mansion of Happiness: A History of Life and Death,” said. “No one has ever answered these questions and no one ever will, but people try.”Her “Mansion” talk April 10 at Widener will include a discussion of the various changes to the board game The Game of Life over the years and how those changes reflect societal currents.Variations of The Game of Life date to the 18th century. Milton Bradley, a Harvard dropout, popularized the Checkered Game of Life in the U.S. in 1860. Then the game was about vice, virtue, and the pursuit of happiness, Lepore said. But by the time the centennial version of the game was released, its focus had changed dramatically.“The centennial version of the game bore almost no resemblance to the original. It was about paychecks, retirement homes, and medical bills, and if you are lucky you retire at Millionaire Acres while the rest of us go to the poorhouse,” Lepore said. “Games are little time capsules, and the history of games tells a story about the history of ideas about life and death, about questions people have asked and answers they have come up with. What really strikes me is how secularized the game has become over the years.”Lepore said the book talk gives her a chance to discuss her own interests and research, something she wouldn’t normally do in a classroom.“I’m not going to say to a class, ‘Read my book.’ But this gives us as professors a chance to discuss specific areas that are of interest to us.”Dowling, the Llura and Gordon Gund Professor of Neuroscience and professor of ophthalmology, has spent his career studying the retina and will discuss his latest research on diseases of the eye and the impact on vision on March 5.“In science, on the cellular and molecular side of things, there have not been many books written, and I have been trying to change that a bit,” said Dowling, who recently published a revision of his 1987 book, “The Retina: An Approachable Part of the Brain.” “When I first started writing, I thought how could I write a book that is hundreds of pages long. But I find writing quite gratifying, especially as it pertains to my research, and that is something I want to share.”last_img read more

Radar rain

first_imgBy Brad HaireUniversity of GeorgiaPeanut farmers can use a common weather radar to better protect their crop from fungal diseases this year. And it’s just a click away.Doppler radar is a weather tool commonly used by TV news meteorologists to show and predict weather. But it can also be a high-tech rain gauge farmers can use to measure rain in and around their fields, said Bob Kemerait, a plant pathologist with the University of Georgia Extension Service.Timely fungicideKnowing how much rain falls in a field is important in keeping fungal diseases like leaf spot, white mold and limb rot under control, Kemerait said.Farmers spray fungicides to fight these diseases.But in the past, the times when farmers have sprayed hasn’t been a precise practice. Most peanut farmers stick to a strict calendar schedule. They spray fungicides about 30 days after planting and then once every two weeks until harvest. This can add up to about seven sprays in one growing season (mostly from May to October).It costs about $7 per acre to spray fungicides on peanuts. That’s not counting tractor fuel or labor. If a farmer has 500 acres of peanuts, he could easily spend $24,500 in one year on fungicides alone.And sticking with the calendar schedule means a farmer sprays regardless of the weather. A grower could spray too late to effectively control a fungal-disease outbreak or spray when he really doesn’t have to.Fungal diseases like rainy conditions. In fact, scientists know if it rains more than one-tenth of an inch in a 24-hour period, conditions are prime for fungal diseases to start assaulting peanuts.”But most farmers don’t have the time to go to every field they have and consistently check rain gauges for that one-tenth-of-an-inch rain trigger,” Kemerait said. It’s easier to keep up with the calendar schedule.Rain gaugeThis is where the Doppler radar can help. Now, a farmer doesn’t have to go from field to field to check rain gauges. He can do it all from a computer at home, Kemerait said.Farmers can get free Doppler data of their fields from AWIS Weather Services, he said. A farmer can register his fields at www.awis.com. He will need the global positioning satellite coordinates of his fields to do this.Kemerait and other UGA scientists in Tifton, Ga., have checked to see how accurate the Doppler radar can indicate that one-tenth-of-an-inch trigger.They registered 10 sites across Georgia for AWIS Doppler data. These sites were also monitored for actual, real-time weather conditions by UGA’s Georgia Automated Environmental Monitoring Network.The monitoring sites and the Doppler radar agreed more than 90 percent of the time in indicating rainfall of one-tenth of an inch or more, he said.A farmer can take rainfall data, along with future rain predictions, and better plan a fungicide spray program, Kemerait said. He can spray or omit sprays as needed, he said, and stay ahead of fungal diseases.There are advisory systems farmers can use to easily do this with the data. AU-Pnut is one system developed at Auburn University.Even technology that’s been around for a while, like Doppler radar, can increase the speed in which some farm work can be done and make it more efficient, Kemerait said. It can allow a farmer to better manage an entire region by simply logging onto a computer anywhere.”Technology in agriculture will never totally replace the need to have someone on the ground at some time,” he said. “But it provides tools to help take some of the legwork out of it.”last_img read more

Three Nigerians Named in Genk’s First Season Home Game

first_imgThree Nigeria-eligible players have been named in Racing Genk’s provisional squad list for their first home game of the 2020-2021 season against OH Leuven this afternoon.Racing Genk coach Hannes Wolf has selected Super Eagles striker Paul Onuachu, Belgian-Nigerian striker Cyriel Dessers and Belgium youth international of Nigerian parentage Shawn Adewoye in a 20-man squad.For the second consecutive match, there is no place in the Genk squad for former Mountain of Fire goal poacher Stephen Odey fueling speculation that he’s not in the plans of the manager for the new season. Dessers making the roster is good news as he had been rated as doubtful previously after suffering a head injury during Wednesday evening’s workout but it remains to be seen if he will be named in the starting lineup.If promising center back Adewoye is given a run-out against OH Leuven, it would be his professional debut for the Limburg club.Genk came from behind to beat Zulte-Waregem 2-1 in their opening match of the season last weekend courtesy of goals from Onuachu and Dessers.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
