Spring 2011 Past Events 

Food Inc.

Monday, January 31, 2011 – 3:00 p.m.

Bartels Alumni Lounge

Georgia Chevant, Director, Nutrition and Dietetics Program

The veil on our nation's food industry is lifted, exposing the highly mechanized underbelly that's been hidden from the American consumer with the consent of our government's regulatory agencies, USDA and FDA. Our nation's food supply is now controlled by a handful of corporations that often put profit ahead of consumer health, the livelihood of the American farmer, the safety of workers and our own environment. We have bigger-breasted chickens, the perfect pork chop, insecticide-resistant soybean seeds, even tomatoes that won't go bad, but we also have new strains of e. coli, the harmful bacteria that causes illness for an estimated 73,000 Americans annually.  (90 min video followed by discussion)

People, Planet, and Profits: Using Sustainable Business Practices to Get People to Like Your Company and Buy From Your Company

Friday, March 4, 2011 – 10:30 a.m.

Buckman 120 (Schumann Auditorium)

David Robinson, College of Business

Why do people buy products from one company rather than another company? To some extent, there is genuine product differentiation: real differences between one company’s products and another’s. There are also differences in marketing effectiveness. But there is also the likeability factor: do people like or dislike the company? If your company adopts sustainable business practices, that is, if your company makes a special effort not to hurt people or the planet, will people be more apt to like your company? Will people be more apt to buy from your company? In short, does sustainability pay? This lecture will discuss how companies are using—and communicating to the public—sustainable business practices to get people to like and buy from their companies.

"Give Chance a Chance: Can Allocation by Sortition Resolve the Connecticut Education-Financing Impasse?"

Wednesday, March 23, 2011 - 2:00 p.m. 
Marvin K. Peterson Library

Dr. Armando Rodriguez, Associate Professor – Economics & Finance

It has been over 30 years since Connecticut embarked on ensuring the constitutionally prescribed right to education by challenging the prevailing mechanism for allocating education financing monies.  Many formulas and approaches have been proposed in response to various legal challenges seeking redress.  Underscoring plaintiff's claim in legal proceedings is the view that plaintiffs drew the short straw in the moral luck calculus. 

We argue that the impasse turns - in part - on differing subjective appraisals of the role of individual agency in the observed achievement gap. There are, of course, other inputs into the educational process.  But it is this perception of agency that heavily influences the general population's political choices. We examine the possibility of relying on lots to resolve the allocation of educational monies, and we conclude that the problem is a social dilemma: the parties involved are individually powerless to resolve.

"Music Associations, National Identity and Civil Society in Eastern Europe: The Case of Tallinn"

Thursday, April 7, 2011 - 2:00 p.m. 

Marvin K. Peterson Library  

Dr. Bradley Woodworth, UNH Lecturer - History

In the late 1980s, the peoples of the Baltic region in Eastern Europe (Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania) used every means at their disposal to assert, peacefully, the desire to run their own affairs, independent of Soviet imperial control.  Perhaps the most impressive example of the solidarity of the Baltic nations in their drive for autonomy was participation in huge song festivals, where national cultures were celebrated by tens of thousands of people.  The Baltic song-festival tradition began in the nineteenth century, a time when all inhabitants of the region began using expressions of national identity to remake the map of social relations inherited from the past.  This presentation will describe these forms of self-expression and community building in one particular city: Tallinn, today the capital of independent Estonia.  I will show that music associations and song festivals were not only articulations of national identity, but also forums where new civic energies were developed.

Avoiding Perverse Outcomes in Decision-Making Under Uncertainty: Reframing the Logic of the Precautionary Principle

 Friday, April 15, 2011 - 12:15 p.m. 

Maxcy 124

Dr. Armando Rodriguez, Associate Professor – Economics & Finance

(Wikipedia): Many definitions of the precautionary principle exist. Precaution may be defined as "caution in advance," "caution practiced in the context of uncertainty," or informed prudence. All definitions have two key elements.

1. an expression of a need by decision-makers to anticipate harm before it occurs. Within this element lies an implicit reversal of the onus of proof: under the precautionary principle it is the responsibility of an activity proponent to establish that the proposed activity will not (or is very unlikely to) result in significant harm.

2. the establishment of an obligation, if the level of harm may be high, for action to prevent or minimize such harm even when the absence of scientific certainty makes it difficult to predict the likelihood of harm occurring, or the level of harm should it occur. The need for control measures increases with both the level of possible harm and the degree of uncertainty.

The lecture will explain and appraise the precautionary principle using the recent debate over the approval of Genetically Modified Salmon as an illustration.

Sidney and his wife Libby, who he met at a displaced persons camp in Germany after the war ended, moved to the U.S. over 50 years ago and opened Sidney's Tailoring and Cleaners in New Haven. He began speaking to students several years ago about his experience during the Holocaust.  "It was very hard for me in the beginning. I almost said no," Sidney remembered.  But in the end, he decided he had an obligation to tell his story.  "I wanted the children to know about it," he said. "I don't want anyone to forget." In addition to the keynote speech, the names of relatives of UNH faculty and staff members who perished will be read. The ceremony will also include a tribute to He Feng-Shan, a Chinese diplomat who helped many people leave Europe in the face of the Nazi persecutions and a short poem, to be read by its author.
