Un-Packing Christian Privilege

8 hours 41 min ago
Thursday, April 24, 2014 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM

The idea of Christian Privilege is not a new one, resulting as it does from the dominant or normalizing influence of Christianity in our North American culture.  Yet there is an emerging complexity to understanding the relationship between experiences of privilege and oppression – particularly in university contexts.  Join us as we seek to uncover and understand privilege,  oppression, and attendant ambiguities.  Led and facilitated by Tim Stover and Clare Cady.

Requests for accommodations related to disability may be made by contacting jodi.nelson@oregonstate.edu or calling 541.737.0715 one week prior to event. No registration required. Bring your lunch and a friend. Everyone is welcome!

Sponsored by the OSU Campus Coalition Builders, a Division of Student Affairs Campus Compact initiative group.

Starker Lecture Series- Working Forests Across the Landscape

8 hours 41 min ago
Thursday, April 24, 2014 3:30 PM - 5:00 PM

 

“Boundaries: Fires don’t understand them,” a private forest landowner once exclaimed about the need to restore forest conditions on both side of the fence in order to protect against wildfire risk. This talk will explore some of the social challenges and opportunities to managing forests in mixed ownership landscapes where disturbances such as wildfire, invasive plants and pests affect broad areas. Drawing on social science research on cross-boundary cooperation and collaboration from the US and abroad, I will discuss important considerations for the management of diverse forest landscapes in the U.S. West.

Poor People Power: The State, Social Provisions, and American Experiments in Democratic Engagement

Wed, 04/23/2014 - 4:10pm
Wednesday, April 23, 2014 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
The highly segmented U.S. welfare state has shaped citizenship status, bolstering the status of recipients of social insurance and other “hidden” benefits while demeaning low-income recipients of means - tested assistance as “anti-citizens,” denigrated for their visible dependence on the state.  But welfare state programs have also offered the most vulnerable a site for democratic engagement and the opportunity to articulate alternative visions of political and social citizenship. 

This lecture explores the history of such efforts – both their successes and the tensions and contradictions they have encountered – and suggests some of the lessons they may offer in an era of welfare restructuring.
