Saturday, May 11, 2019
9:00am to 11:00am

Where  

Vogel Alcove
See map
1738 Gano StreetDallas, TX 75215

Description  

Vogel Alcove serves as many as 200 children each day, allowing them to learn, grow and thrive in a place free from hunger or trauma. While their children are in our care, our parents, most of whom are single mothers, have the opportunity to work, look for work or go to school. We give homeless families a chance to overcome their circumstances.

Volunteers will build Bye-Bye bags, which contain shelf-stable snacks and a small bottle of water that children can bring home at the end of the day. These snack sacks provide additional nutrition when the children are away from our facility. Volunteers gather the supplies and fill the bags. You will be assigned items to donate/bring the week before the event. 

Weather permitting, there will also be a garden and/or playground beautification project to tackle.

This is a family-friendly, all-ages event.  We have bag decorating for our artistic and younger volunteers and plenty of jobs for volunteers of all ages.  Bring the entire family!

THE FIELD OF BLOOD: VIOLENCE IN CONGRESS AND THE ROAD TO THE CIVIL WAR | JOANNE FREEMAN

  • SMU Campus, McCord Auditorium, 306 Dallas Hall (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Register here

In The Field of Blood, Yale Professor Joanne B. Freeman recovers the long-lost story of physical violence on the floor of the U.S. Congress. Drawing on an extraordinary range of sources, she shows that the Capitol was rife with conflict in the decades before the Civil War. Legislative sessions were often punctuated by mortal threats, canings, flipped desks, and all-out slugfests. When debate broke down, congressmen drew pistols and waved Bowie knives. One representative even killed another in a duel. Many were beaten and bullied in an attempt to intimidate them into compliance, particularly on the issue of slavery.

Joanne B. Freeman, a professor of history and American studies at Yale University, is a leading authority on early national politics and political culture. The author of the award-winning Affairs of Honor: National Politics in the New Republic and editor of The Essential Hamilton and Alexander Hamilton: Writings, she is a cohost of the popular history podcast BackStory.

Parking will be available on the SMU campus. FREE passes will be emailed to registered guests before the event.  Seating is limited, and not guaranteed.

Please note, there will NOT be a reception before this event. Freeman's publication of the same title will be available for purchase and signing after the event.

My Children Won’t Let Me Work: The Economic Impact of Childcare on Dallas

DESCRIPTION

Even if you don't care about the costs of our prison system, the quality of our future workforce or the staggering poverty statistics in Dallas, what happens with our babies and toddlers and preschoolers - at all economic levels - has a significant economic impact on our region. Join Regen Horchow Fearon, Chair of Early Matter Dallas, and Derek Little, Assistant Superintendent, DISD, to understand how our city has identified an education issue which starts before children ever enter a school and which has a compounding impact on the success of our adults and children to be tax paying contributors to our local economy.

Artificial Intelligence in Biomedical Research and Clinical Practice with Dr. Danuser

  • UT Southwestern T. Boone Pickens Biomedical Building (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Machine learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) take over nearly every aspect of our lives, from the books we get recommended for purchase online to the coupons we receive in grocery stores. ML and AI do also not halt at the doorstep of biomedical research and clinical practice. In the Lyda Hill Department of Bioinformatics, researchers study the theoretical foundation of AI and ML methods and how these tools can be harnessed to understand and cure disease. In this lecture, Dr. Danuser, Chairman of Bioinformatics, will offer an intuitive introduction to the concepts of AI and illustrate concrete applications of AI in the diagnosis of cancer and the discovery of new drugs.

About Dr. Gaundenz Danuser

Since July 2015 Gaudenz Danuser has been appointed as theinaugural chair of the Lyda Hill Department of Bioinformatics. He also holds the Patrick E. Haggerty Distinguished Chair in Basic Biomedical Science and is a Scholar of the Cancer Prevention Institute of Texas (CPRIT). Before moving to UTSW, Danuser directed research laboratories at ETH Zurich (2002 – 2003), at The Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla (2003 – 2009), and at Harvard Medical School (2009 – 2014).

Trained as an engineer (geodetic and electrical engineering/computer science), he entered the field of cell biology as a postdoctoral fellow in the Program for Architectural Dynamics of Living Cells at the MBL in Woods Hole. Since then, he has focused his research on the question how chemical and mechanical signals integrate in the regulation of cytoskeleton dynamics and membrane trafficking.

With his CPRIT recruitment he has redirected his efforts towards understanding the implications of mechanical and chemical cell shape regulation in migration and survival of the metastatic cell, including the roles mechanical cues play in conferring what his lab calls ‘mechanical drug resistance’.

To address these questions his lab develops innovative quantitative imaging methods to experimentally probe these processes and uses mathematical modeling to compile the data in mechanistic systems analyses. He is a devoted teacher in areas of computational cell biology, cellular biophysics, and the theory of measurement applied to cell biology. He is co-chair of the computational and systems biology track in UTSW's graduate school.

His contributions to cell biology and biophysics have been recognized by several awards and honors. Recent nominations include Recruitment Awards from the UT STARS and CPRIT programs (2012), the Charles Edward Holt Memorial Lectureship at The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (2011), a Transformative R01 Research Award from the NIH Director’s Office (2009 - 2014), and the Michael and Kate Barany Award for Young Investigators by The Biophysical Society (2009).

An Evening with Pulitzer Prize winner James Forman, Jr.

An Evening with Pulitzer Prize winner James Forman, Jr.

Author of Locking Up Our Own: Crime and Punishment in Black America
In partnership with Interbang Books

Learn More Here


WINNER OF THE 2018 PULITZER PRIZE FOR NON-FICTION

Former public defender James Forman, Jr. is a leading critic of mass incarceration and its disproportionate impact on people of color. In LOCKING UP OUR OWN, he seeks to understand the war on crime that began in the 1970s and why it was supported by many African American leaders in the nation’s urban centers.

Forman shows us that the first substantial cohort of black mayors, judges, and police chiefs took office amid a surge in crime and drug addiction. Many prominent black officials, including Washington, D.C. mayor Marion Barry and federal prosecutor Eric Holder, feared that the gains of the civil rights movement were being undermined by lawlessness--and thus embraced tough-on-crime measures, including longer sentences and aggressive police tactics. In the face of skyrocketing murder rates and the proliferation of open-air drug markets, they believed they had no choice. But the policies they adopted would have devastating consequences for residents of poor black neighborhoods.

A former D.C. public defender, Forman tells riveting stories of politicians, community activists, police officers, defendants, and crime victims. He writes with compassion about individuals trapped in terrible dilemmas--from the men and women he represented in court to officials struggling to respond to a public safety emergency. LOCKING UP OUR OWN enriches our understanding of why our society became so punitive and offers important lessons to anyone concerned about the future of race and the criminal justice system in this country.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
James Forman Jr. is a professor of law at Yale Law School. He has written for The New York Times, The Atlantic, numerous law reviews, and other publications. A former clerk for Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, he spent six years as a public defender in Washington, D.C., where he cofounded the Maya Angelou Public Charter School.

The Creative Art of Translation

Austin Worner is a Chinese-English literary translator and a Yale College graduate (Saybrook '08). He is coming to Dallas to do an author event at Deep Vellum Books to promote a Chinese novel he translated into English, The Invisible Valley. The author, Su Wei, is a Tiananmen Square exile who's been teaching Chinese literature at Yale for twenty years.

Learn more below. Hope you can attend!

Event info: http://deepvellum.com/events/2018/austin-woerner-and-su-wei-the-creative-art-of-translation

Description and author bios:

When Chinese novelist Su We nd his translator Austin Woerner first met in 2005, little did they know that their friendship would spark a ten-year-long experiment in creative co-translation that would take them from the classrooms of Yale to the mountains o outhern Chin nd back again. Joi ustin as he recount his literary odyssey, culminating in the publication o i nglish translation of Su’s nove h nvisible Valley in English this Apri, y Small Beer Pres. Austi ill reveal the story behin he story, a coming-of-age narrative set during the Cultural Revolution against a backdrop of rainforest landscapes, Taoist mysticism, and Cantonese folklore. In the proces e will share th oys and complexities o iterar ranslation an is adventures in Chinese literature both on and off the page.

In tropical southern China, in the midst of the Cultural Revolution, a teenage boy named Lu Beiping stumbles upon a band of woodcutters living deep in the mountains. Outcasts from mainstream society, the “driftfolk,” as they call themselves, practice a secret faith whose central tenets would be heresy in the world Lu Beiping comes from. As he is drawn deeper into their way of life—a realm of strange freedoms and restrictions, where the line between magic and reality is not always clear—Lu must struggle with what is natural and what is truly deviant, and learn to play a precarious balancing act between two taboo-ridden worlds. 

Like many Chinese writers of his generation, Su Wei spent his teenage years being “re-educated” through farm labor in the countryside, working for ten years on a rubber plantation in the mountains of tropical Hainan Island. He is known for his nonfiction essays as well as for his highly imaginative novels, which are seen as unique in their treatment of the Cultural Revolution. He fled China in 1989, and since 1997 he has taught Chinese language and literature at Yale University. he Invisible Valley is his first book to be translated into English.

A Chinese-English literary translator, Austin Woerner has translated two volumes of poetry, oubled Shadows: Selected Poetry of Ouyang Jianghe and hoenix, and edited the English edition of the innovative, bilingual Chinese literary journal hutzpah! Together with Ou Ning, he co-edited the short fiction anthology hutzpah! New Voices from China. He has a BA in East Asian Studies from Yale and an MFA in creative writing from the New School, and he is currently a lecturer at Duke Kunshan University.
