Pathways to Public Health: A Conversation with Public Health Practitioners
Over the past two decades, Public Health, Population Health, and Global Health have increased in popularity. The COVID-19 pandemic has increased everyone’s knowledge and awareness of the importance of public health and community health in keeping communities and people healthy and safe. As a result, many students express interest in these areas as a way to have a broader impact. Two public health practitioners with experience and expertise in the areas of adolescent health, maternal and child health, academia, community health, social and behavioral health, local government, and organization capacity building will speak about their pathways in public health. These panelists will speak about their educational paths, their decision to pursue a public health career, and past/current public health practice and specialization, shedding light on the scope and importance of public and community health programs along with opportunities within these two important fields of practice.

Ezra and Cecile Zilkha Gallery Exhibition: The Language in Common

Moving beyond the spectacle of the origination of poetry or art, this project seeks to allow memory as a creative act in the process of making experience common, of making space for a new imaginary. The exhibition will bring together five artists whose work engages with politics on the periphery of hegemony, including Cecilia Vicuña (b.1948, Chile), Tanya Lukin Linklater (b.1976, Alutiiq), Julien Creuzet (b.1986, France), Jasper Marsalis (b.1995, U.S.), and Alice Notley (b.1945, U.S.). Featuring works encompassing installation, sculpture, video, drawing, poetry, and performance, as well as newly-commissioned works developed in response to the exhibition, The Language in Common aims towards what the poet Alice Notley calls “the language that holds all being together.”

Olin Memorial Library Exhibition: Wesleyan: In Sickness and in Health
This focus of this exhibition is on both illness and the prevention of illness. The seven cases progress in roughly chronological order. The first three address disease; specifically the state of medical practice in the 19th century, diseases that affected Wesleyan students during those years, and the challenges Wesleyan faced in 1918 due to the influenza epidemic and the effects of World War I. The four cases on the opposite side of the hallway feature methods of preventing disease. The first case documents the emergence of the field of public health, which in turn led to better hygiene and household improvements such as indoor plumbing. The second case features promotional and educational fliers from Wesleyan on personal health and health issues. The final two cases address the effectiveness of vaccination against smallpox, polio, and now, the Covid-19 virus. As we have improved our understanding of the causes and treatment of disease, the challenges to global health are now political, environmental and social.

WESEMINAR Where On Earth Are We Going: The 19th Annual Symposium of the Robert Schumann Institute of the College of the Environment: Recent Glacier-Related Flood Events in High Mountain Environments

The development of glacial lakes from receding glaciers, contained by either terminal moraines or bedrock, is commonly linked with global warming trends that have occurred since the end of the Little Ice Age (LIA). Such lakes are prone to sudden and catastrophic drainage, popularly known as glacial lake outburst floods (GLOF). Although GLOFs continue to dominate the focus of both peer reviewed and popular media articles alike, a range of other cryospheric processes and hazards exist that are in need of further research attention and mitigation technologies. Those discussed in the multi-media presentation include (a) englacial conduit floods, (b) periodic and recurrent flooding of lakes created by glacier- or ice-dammed lakes, (c) permafrost-linked rockfall and debris flows, and (d) earthquake-linked glacier floods. It is suggested that our understanding of these hazards could be strengthened through the use of more field-based studies; the investigation of glacier flood events as soon after their occurrence as possible; and incorporation of the insights and experiences of local people. How scientists can more quickly and effectively share the results of their high mountain hazards research with decision-makers; and how decision-makers and governments can deliver more timely mitigation programs, are areas that are also suggested as being in need of further strengthening.
INTRODUCTIONS BY: Frederick M. Cohan, Huffington Foundation Professor in the College of the Environment and Suzanne O’Connell, Professor of Earth and Environmental Sciences, Professor, Integrative Sciences and Harold T. Stearns Professor of Earth Science 
PRESENTER: Alton C. Byers, Ph.D., Institute for Arctic and Alpine Research (INSTAAR) at the University of Colorado at Boulder and Distinguished Visiting Scholar in the College of the Environment is a mountain geographer, conservationist, and mountaineer specializing in applied research, high altitude ecosystems, climate change, glacier hazards, and integrated conservation and development programs.

WESEMINAR Minority Rule? The Recent History and Uncertain Future of the Senate Filibuster
A defining feature of the contemporary Senate is the 60-vote, supermajority threshold required to end debate on most matters. Over the last decade, senators have lowered this threshold to a simple majority for judicial and executive branch nominees while keeping the supermajority requirement in place for most legislation. Momentum is building among progressives to end the legislative filibuster as well, but pivotal Democratic senators remain opposed. This WESeminar will examine the recent history of filibuster reform while discussing the prospects for and barriers to future reforms.
