On May 10, the Stevanovich Institute on the Formation of Knowledge will present "Translating the Global, Assembling the Social: The (Re-)Emergence of Community Mental Health in China" as the final installment of their Cultures and Knowledge Workshop series for Spring Term. This workshop will be presented by Zhiying Ma.

After its decay over the past two decades, community mental health has re-emerged in China since 2004. In the 1970s and 1980s, community mental health in China consisted of local experiments praised by the World Health Organization as models for developing countries. Nowadays, however, it consists mostly of programs that import...

On April 12, join the Stevanovich Institute on the Formation of Knowledge for the first Cultures and Knowledge Workshop of the Spring Term. Professor Sarah Jessica Johnson will be discussing "Uncertainty is the Story: Cecilia’s Pregnancy in a Colonial Prison." This presentation explores how, in 1784, Cecilia Conway—a maroon woman arrested in New Orleans—asserted that she was pregnant and thereby leveraged the power of her reproductive labor. Cecilia was imprisoned at the height of a Spanish campaign against communities of cimarrones living outside New Orleans, and the prison at that time was crowded with maroons. The conversations between Cecilia and the prison's authorities that this work unearths constitute an original archive of Cecilia's assertions while accounting for their heavily-mediated and...

Scientists and UN advisory bodies have identified our lives as a historical moment of crisis, writ in terms of a limited opportunity for the planet’s inhabitants to decide to keep carbon in the ground. In the university, scholars have proposed a variety of indirect supports to the problem of adjustment, but little environmental scholarship from the humanities and social sciences embodies a truly pragmatic response....
