Robert Pekkanen's description below.

 Open to all students, this is a fee-based class offered through UW Continuum College and there is a separate registration fee of $1322.

 How to register:

See the link below with instructions

JSIS 478 I (2 cr)

http://www.washington.edu/students/timeschd/SPR2019/95jsis.html

You may also optionally choose to register for additional credit through your normal Seattle Campus registration:
JSIS B 431 5 cr.  (undergrads)

JSIS B 531 5 cr.  (graduate students)

I want to call to your attention the unique opportunity to participate in a great simulation exercise through registering for JSIS 478 I this quarter. Students join one of seven teams representing China, Japan, the US, India, Indonesia, the Philippines and Vietnam for a two-day intensive negotiation. The simulation exercise is a wonderful hands-on experience for any student interested in international relations and diplomacy. I run the simulation in collaboration with the US Army War College, who send a team out to Seattle for the simulation. I don’t believe there is any other course or opportunity like this at UW and I encourage you to consider it.  

Professor Robert Pekkanen 

The international strategic crisis negotiation simulation offers students a tremendous opportunity to role-play a complex diplomatic negotiation related to a real-world global conflict. Offered in conjunction with the US Army War College, this year's exercise will simulate an Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) summit convened to negotiate an end to the conflict in the South China Sea- a topic that has been very much in the news. Over the course of the quarter-long class taught by Prof. Robert Pekkanen, participants will learn about the politics of the region, as well as team leadership and diplomatic negotiation skills, in preparation for the 2-day simulation May 18 and 19.

"The Seattle Flu Study is a community- and healthcare-based study tracking the spread of influenza. If you or someone you know are experiencing cold or flu-like symptoms, we could use your help! We’re trying to map flu spread in the city of Seattle, and setting up kiosks at different sites all around the city to get nasal swabs in anyone with at least two cold symptoms, and then we are sequencing them and making a “live map” of flu spread so we can develop a strategy to interrupt a future pandemic. We would love to have some participation - we will have swag, and $10 gift cards.

 Please feel free to refer friends, colleagues, or yourself. We are enrolling participants at three UW locations through the end of April:

-The Rotunda (11am - 1pm)

-The HUB (10am-3pm)

DESCRIPTION
The Call for Proposals for the 2019 UW Three Minute Thesis (UW 3MT®) event is now open to eligible graduate students from Bothell, Tacoma, and Seattle campuses. Read the eligibility requirements.

Are you a UW graduate student in the final stages of your capstone, thesis or dissertation project? Apply to compete in Three Minute Thesis, where you'll have the opportunity to present your research in just three minutes for cash prizes totaling $2,500.

Submit a proposal by April 5 at 11:59 p.m.

The theme for this year’s competition is Impact. As graduate and professional students, you are contributing to significant innovations within your respective fields and disciplines, within your communities and across local and international levels. Whether you have developed a new way of approaching a problem, unearthed an important part of history that needs to be told or created a solution or technology to address a pressing contemporary issue — we want to hear in your proposal how your thesis, capstone, or research project has potential or demonstrated impact!

Participating in 3MT is a great opportunity to:

• Learn to talk about your research without using jargon
• Prepare for job interviews. One UW 3MT winner shared that her three minute talk was useful for answering job interview questions!
• Practice your public speaking skills
• Build your network and your resume
• Receive practice session feedback from Core Programs and UW Libraries staff in a friendly and positive environment
• Compete for cash prizes!

3MT is intended for graduate students who are ready to present their capstone, thesis or dissertation work, rather than for works-in-progress. If you are at an earlier stage with your research, we encourage you to consider Scholars’ Studio events to present your work.

There are 3 spaces available in JSIS 540: Economics and Politics of International Development taught by Mary Callahan this spring 2019.

 This course examines economic development in less-developed nations, with a focus on post-World War II development in sub-Saharan Africa and India. It explores possible determinants of economic growth, including foreign investment, international trade and foreign aid. Particular attention will be paid to the role that institutional factors, such as executive power and protection of property rights, play in determining economic outcomes. We will also analyze how the international monetary and financial system affects development, the role of globalization in economic crises, and how fiscal and monetary policy can affect growth in developing countries. We will conclude with an examination of how economic growth is affecting population and environmental issues in the developing world.

Graduate Seminar, L ARCH 598C Politics of Space, (3) credits, SLN#15774.

Meets TTh 12:00-1:20, GLD 208J, Spring Quarter 2019.  Taught by Prof. Lynne Manzo.

This graduate seminar offers an opportunity to engage in discussion and debate around the ways that diversity, power, and marginalization play out spatially and the implications of these dynamics on democracy, participation and the creative responses of civil society to claim and use space.

The spirit of the seminar is exploratory and experimental – it is an attempt for us to think together around these complex dynamics and consider ways forward toward more equitable environments and strategies.  Topics will range from political ecology to the politics of urban public space, the right to the city, and how the very conceptualization, use and maintenance of space can be used to support a normative order or to catalyze change.

As an advanced seminar, this course will provide opportunities for active student participation through peer-led discussions, exercises and individual projects tailored to students’ interests.  Students from diverse disciplines are encouraged to contribute their particular skill sets and frameworks.

For information + an ADD CODE please contact Lynne Manzo, PhD lmanzo@uw.edu

MolMed 504: Challenges in Tuberculosis

 Each year, this class focuses on an important topic in medicine and science. Lectures introduce clinical and basic science background, followed by a seminar/discussion with speakers. Lectures are also open to interested individuals beyond the enrolled students. The post-lecture seminar/discussion is open only to enrolled students.  This course is co-sponsored by the M3D Program and the UW Tuberculosis Research and Training Center.

 The topic for Spring Quarter 2019 is “Challenges in Tuberculosis.” 

Tuberculosis is the leading infectious cause of death worldwide.  Despite the availability of effective drugs for over 60 years and a vaccine since the early 1900s, the tuberculosis epidemic endures.  Mycobacterium tuberculosis subverts immune responses and persists.  This course will address critical biologic challenges and recent progress to control this ancient disease.

 MolMed 504 is chaired by Dr. Thomas Hawn, Dr. Conrad Liles and Dr. Nancy Maizels.

The seminars will take place on Mondays from 12 to 1pm in Brotman auditorium at the South Lake Union campus.  Lunch for students with the speaker will occur from 1-2pm in F106.

Engage for Earth: See Events

Posted: March 11, 2019

While traditionally Earth Day at the University of Washington has been an environmental-centric festival, this year we are expanded the conversation to include the economic, social, and political aspects that we believe are crucial to any discussion of sustainability. Which is why our theme this year is Engage for Earth!

We are reaching out to invite al UW-members (as well as programs, schools, departments, and student groups) to actively participate in this year’s Earth Day events!

 There are different ways to participate:

 Poster Design Contest: Show us how you… ENGAGE FOR EARTH

For Earth Day 2019 we are focused on raising awareness of environmental justice and engaging with diverse forms of sustainability. The Earth Day Planning Committee encourages applicants to explore non-traditional design language that goes beyond environmental sustainability and highlights the broad themes of Action, Diversity, Equity, and Environmental Justice. The contest is open to all UW students, faculty, staff, and alumni. More information can be found in the attached flyer.

 Poster designs are due by midnight on March 12, 2019

 Taking part of the program either during Earth Week or during Earth Day.

During Earth Day you can also participate by setting up a table to pass information and engage with other students. We are expecting lots of foot traffic so it would be an excellent way to gain exposure. Our programming will include speakers, exhibitors, performances, art, film screenings, panels, and more to both engage and empower students and local community members to get involved in their communities. There’s a lot of room for groups to get creative and participate in a way that really enhances this dialogue and gives all a chance to showcase what they do and what they’re passionate about, beyond the more classic tabling model.

 In addition to Earth Day, we will also be facilitating several related events in the week leading up to the April 22nd festivities. All UW departments and groups are encouraged to create their own event during the month of April focusing on diversity, environmental or social justice, or sustainability as part of Earth Week. To have your event included on the UW's Earth Week event calendar, email sustainability@uw.edu.

 Please help us by sharing this information in your units and among groups.

We’d love to have multiple perspectives to be a part of our Earth Day events. For those interested in participating, please contact the student coordinator, Sarah Culp, at sfculp@gmail.com. We look forward to learning how you engage!

 Save the date!

College of Built Environments / McKinley Seminar and Studio / Spring 2019

The McKinley Transformative Urban Futures is an interdisciplinary seminar and studio integrating urban and building science, economics, and speculative design investigations to develop alternative urban future scenarios that serve to mitigate and adapt to climate change.  Students will learn to think strategically when examining complex problems, building skills in scientific methods, critical thinking, and imaginative practice to develop these scenarios and explore transformative urban futures for a comparative examination of Seattle, Washington & Phoenix, Arizona. 

BE498/598 Seminar / 3 credits / M + W 130 – 250pm     BE405/505 Studio / 6 credits / M, W, + F 130 – 520pm

The Transformative Urban Futures  interdisciplinary seminar (3 credits) and futures studio (6 credits) will build on existing knowledge, projections, and data to develop future visions for the cities of Phoenix, AZ and Seattle, WA. It will be a fantastic experience that blends grounded knowledge with speculative visions through compelling and dynamic approaches.
 
The seminar component (BE 495/595, 3 credits) is for students who do not intend to take the full studio, but are interested in the approach and the science behind future scenario development. Registrations for the Seminar are now open. If enrolled in the studio, you will automatically be part of the seminar. It is built into the curriculum for the class. There will be no need to sign up for anything more than the studio.

More information on this class can be found at this link:

The application for the studio component can be found HERE. Please fill it out by Friday, March 01. For graduate students, I know this timing is also contrary to the department's timeline for this coming Friday, but we again have been pinched due to the snow closures. So, if interested, please fill the application as soon as possible and make sure to list McKinley in your preferences.

There are 5 spaces available in JSIS 540: Economics and Politics of International Development taught by Mary Callahan this spring 2019.

 This course examines economic development in less-developed nations, with a focus on post-World War II development in sub-Saharan Africa and India. It explores possible determinants of economic growth, including foreign investment, international trade and foreign aid. Particular attention will be paid to the role that institutional factors, such as executive power and protection of property rights, play in determining economic outcomes. We will also analyze how the international monetary and financial system affects development, the role of globalization in economic crises, and how fiscal and monetary policy can affect growth in developing countries. We will conclude with an examination of how economic growth is affecting population and environmental issues in the developing world.

 JSIS 540: Economics and Politics of International Development

Tuesdays, 2:30-5:20pm

This course is a part of the Master of Arts in Applied International Studies.

Our 14th annual Summer Institute will take place from June 10 - July 27, 2019. At this point in our application process, we are still accepting applications from graduate students and professionals. Our next round of applications are due on March 29th. Our programs are known for our engaging and approachable faculty, an enthusiastic alumni network, and opportunities to network with faculty and participants from all over the globe. We also offer a four-day program, Foundations of Bioethics.  

 The full 7-week program provides up to 200 contact hours. Each day starts with an engaging lecture on bioethics that varies from "Ethical Implications of Vaping" to "Ethics of Lethal Autonomous Weapons." In the afternoon, students attend seminars led by our esteemed faculty and visiting scholars from across the globe. Seminar topics include Ethics of Time Travel, Clinical Ethics, Ethics of Information, Medical Humanities (in Spanish), Bioethics and the Law, Animal Ethics, Neuroethics, Research Ethics, and much more. Please visit this link to view descriptions of all our seminars: https://bioethics.yale.edu/2019-seminars.

 At the end of the program, all students present a poster at Yale School of Medicine, and some students work 1:1 with faculty to write an academic publication during the program. The summer institute can serve as the launching ground to a rewarding career in bioethics. Several students from our 2017 class recently presented their work at Oxford, and many of our 2015-2018 students just presented their work at UNESCO’s annual bioethics conference in Jerusalem, the conference of the American Society for Bioethics and Humanities, and other conferences worldwide.

 Please visit our website at http://bioethics.yale.edu/ to learn more, or email us at bioethics@yale.edu .
