Excellence in Teaching Lecture

Van Duzer Theater
Maral Attallah, recipient of the 2013/2014 Humboldt State University Excellence in Teaching Award for faculty lecturer, presents "The Stories We (Don't) Tell: Re-writing Collective Memory and Identity."

Attallah is a lecturer in the Department of Critical Race, Gender & Sexuality Studies. Her areas of specialization include genocide studies, race and ethnic relations, and identity politics.

How do the stories we tell about ourselves help shape who we are and how others see us? What role does storytelling have in shaping history? When stories are valued they are seen as "authentic," and that presumed authenticity influences memory and identity.

It is often the stories we don't hear, the ones we don't share or that are pushed to the margins, that could help us move towards empathic reconciliation in times of widespread empathic collapse. Through stories ranging from family traditions to civil rights struggles to the Armenian Genocide, Professor Attallah will address the power of telling our stories.

Scaling Renewable Energy: A Perspective from Google

Behavioral and Social Sciences Building
HSU's Sustainable Futures Speaker Series presents “Scaling Renewable Energy: A Perspective from Google,” a free public lecture by Sam Arons.

Arons is a member of Google's Global Infrastructure team, where as part of the team's global data center strategy, he helps lead the development and implementation of the company's global renewable energy strategy.

Key efforts of the team include managing Google's energy portfolio and sourcing as much renewable energy as possible to power the datacenters. Recent examples of the team's success include a negotiating a utility agreement for up to 407 MW of wind power in Iowa, closing a long-term power purchase agreement for 239 MW of wind power in the Texas panhandle, and signing a 72 MW wind power purchase agreement in Sweden to supply Google’s Hamina, Finland datacenter.

Prior to joining Google, Sam earned a B.A. in Physics from Williams College and an M.S. in Energy and Resources from UC Berkeley, where his research focused on wind energy and plug-in vehicles, respectively.

Biological Sciences Seminar Series

HSU Campus
All are welcome to attend this week's seminar, featuring Dr. Katharyn Boyer, of San Francisco State University. Dr. Boyer will present: "Consumer control of foundational plant species: implications for estuarine restoration."

Herbivory in estuarine systems undergoing restoration has received little attention, yet grazers play important, if not critical, roles in the establishment and persistence of plant species that
form the foundations of restored habitats. In this seminar, Dr. Boyer will review evidence of the central role of both invertebrate and vertebrate herbivores in seagrass and marsh habitats, and discuss the importance of experimental manipulations that reveal the magnitude and seasonality of effects and interactions among species. She will argue that understanding herbivore roles can inform restoration actions and increase the effectiveness of restoration programs.
