- Julian Olden, of the UW School of Aquatic and Fisheries Science will speak on Fish Invasions, Climate Change, and Their Interactive Ecological Impacts in the John Day River, OR as part of a spring general-audience-minded Water series. 8:30-9:20am in room 223, Anderson Hall, University of Washington (map)
- Lane Baker, a chemistry professor from Indiana University, will be talking about his group’s work on Measuring Holes and Gaps with Ion Conductance Microscopy at 12:30-1:20pm in room 260 Bagley Hall at the University of Washington (map). This will be a highly technical chemical engineering talk. Go at your own risk! Here’s a taste.
- Gwen Ottinger will talk about the Biopolitics of the Fenceline at the University of Washington Bothell, UW1 280 (Rose Room), 4:00-5:30pm. Unfortunately I won’t be able to make it to Bothell, but if you go, I’d love to hear about it. Prof. Ottinger will look at the “ways that contemporary cultural values of individual responsibility and self-care shape the resident-expert relationship–and, in particular, how these values make the costs of challenging expert knowledge prohibitively high for poor and working-class residents.”
- Charles Chavkin, professor at the UW Department of Pharmacology will tell you how stress increases your risk of drug addiction, from a neuroscience perspective at 7:30 pm in Kane Hall, Room 220 (map). This will be the last in the Dept of Molecular Medicine’s public lecture series this spring.
