Fatness, Body-Size Stigma, and Thin Privilege

Fatness, Body-Size Stigma, and Thin Privilege

Monday, March 4, 2019 - 3:00 pm

In this panel discussion, three faculty scholars will share their research and analyses of the changing socio-cultural perspectives on body size and fatness, including how “obesity” is currently perceived and sometimes mis-perceived by health professionals.  Have you wondered, for example, why it is now acceptable to charge fat people more for insurance coverage than thin people? Or does it seem self-evident to you that individuals with perceived behavioral health diagnoses--smoking, addictions, certain genetic conditions--should pay more? Can--and should--we equate how people look with the state of their health?  Susan Hill, Professor of Philosophy and World Religions, will discuss the historical context for these kinds of trends and explore the current state of medical research on fatness.  A second panel member, Fabio Fontana, Associate Professor of Kinesiology, will share his original research on the identification of anti-obesity biases among exercise-related professionals, whether these biases might translate into negative actions and behaviors of exercise-related professionals toward obese clients, and how weight-related bullying affects children and adolescents (in-progress).  Finally, Jesse Swan, Professor of English, will share his perspectives as a humanities scholar on love and hate, fat and fat stigma, and the hidden presumptions of thin privilege. Attendees will be encouraged to explore their own understanding and assumptions about fatness and how those affect their daily lives, interpersonally and professionally. Co-sponsored by the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning. Registration Required.

How Would You Balance the Federal Budget?

How Would You Balance the Federal Budget?

Tuesday, March 5, 2019 - 4:30 pm

Understand the complexities of balancing the federal budget and the difficult policy choices lawmakers face in this interactive workshop led by staff from the non-partisan Concord Coalition. This 2-hour event kicks off with a short overview of federal spending, followed by the 90-minute Principles and Priorities exercise. Working in small groups, participants will review current federal spending priorities, tax policy and entitlement reform options and apply their own principles and negotiating skills to put forward a consensus-based deficit reduction plan. It’s an eye-opening experience designed to educate voters on the political will and compromise required to address our spiraling national debt.

David Oman, Senior Advisor to the Concord Coalition and former Chief of Staff for Governors Robert Ray and Terry Branstad, will facilitate the workshop. The Concord Coalition is a bipartisan national organization that for 25 years has worked to encourage a balanced federal budget. 

Participants are asked to attend the entire 2-hour event.

Sponsored by the Department of Political Science and American Democracy Project.

Do You Know Your Neighbor w/ Keynote Speaker Diana Patton

Do You Know Your Neighbor w/ Keynote Speaker Diana Patton

Tuesday, March 5, 2019 - 6:30 pm

DO YOU KNOW YOUR NEIGHBOR?

Join Keynote Speaker, Diana Patton on Tuesday, March 5, 2019 from 6:30pm - 8:00pm in Maucker Ballroom (B)

How well do you know your teacher, fellow students, coworker, teammate, and roommate ... well, your neighbor? The more you know someone, the more you understand them, and learn why they do what they do. Most of us don't know the person we sit right next to every single day, or even the person that lives right across from us. Sadly, that results in a lack of connection, acceptance, confidence, and even a feeling of safety.  

Diana Patton, national speaker, attorney, consultant, author will ask, “Do You Know Your Neighbor?” Diana will share her remarkable story, as told in her memoir, Inspiration in My Shoes, and provide her perspective on the journey of diversity and inclusion, and how our own unconscious biases can impact our ability to get to know one other.

Diana will also share how getting to know others has impacted her career, her struggles, and her success. She'll share the five steps we all can take to get to know our neighbor, so that we can thrive in our communities by building relationships.  

**Diana will host a book signing opportunity immediately following Diana's presentation from 8:00-8:30**

To learn more about this event, please contact Sunni Kegebein at sunni.kegebein@uni.edu or 319-273-4784. You may also visit Diana's website at http://www.dianarpatton.com/

Fatness, Body-Size Stigma and Thin Privilege

Fatness, Body-Size Stigma and Thin Privilege

Monday, March 11, 2019 - 3:00 pm

In this panel discussion, three faculty scholars will share their research and analyses of the changing socio-cultural perspectives on body size and fatness, including how “obesity” is currently perceived and sometimes mis-perceived by health professionals.  Have you wondered, for example, why it is now acceptable to charge fat people more for insurance coverage than thin people? Or does it seem self-evident to you that individuals with perceived behavioral health diagnoses--smoking, addictions, certain genetic conditions--should pay more? Can--and should--we equate how people look with the state of their health?  Susan Hill, Professor of Philosophy and World Religions, will discuss the historical context for these kinds of trends and explore the current state of medical research on fatness.  A second panel member, Fabio Fontana, Associate Professor of Kinesiology, will share his original research on the identification of anti-obesity biases among exercise-related professionals, whether these biases might translate into negative actions and behaviors of exercise-related professionals toward obese clients, and how weight-related bullying affects children and adolescents (in-progress).  Finally, Jesse Swan, Professor of English, will share his perspectives as a humanities scholar on love and hate, fat and fat stigma, and the hidden presumptions of thin privilege. Attendees will be encouraged to explore their own understanding and assumptions about fatness and how those affect their daily lives, interpersonally and professionally. Co-sponsored by the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning. Registration Requested.

This panel discussion focuses on research and analysis of the changing socio-cultural perspectives on body size and fatness.

Writing Multiple Choice Questions that Demand Critical Thinking: A Workshop

Writing Multiple Choice Questions that Demand Critical Thinking: A Workshop

Tuesday, March 26, 2019 - 3:30 pm to 5:00 pm

Facilitators: Abbylynn Helgevold (Philosophy & World Religions) & Susan Hill (CETL)

Many of us use multiple-choice questions in our exams: they are easy to grade, and can be very helpful in determining what students know about course content and facts. They often seem less helpful in gauging students’ higher-level thinking skills. This workshop focuses on how we can write multiple-choice questions that engage more complex thinking. First, we’ll look at some strategies and examples, and then we’ll take our own multiple choice questions and begin transforming them. It isn’t necessary, but do feel free to bring along examples of your multiple-choice questions!

Dealing with Racist and Other Inappropriate Comments in the Classroom: A Workshop

Dealing with Racist and Other Inappropriate Comments in the Classroom: A Workshop

Wednesday, March 27, 2019 - 3:15 pm to 5:00 pm

Facilitators: Susan Hill (CETL) & Karen Mitchell (Communication Studies)

Many of us find it challenging to handle racist or inappropriate comments in the classroom. Such comments often take us off guard, and can be very difficult to handle well.

This workshop focuses on:
1) the kinds of comments we should be attentive to, including microaggressions;
2) how we can set up our classrooms to avoid such comments and respond effectively when they happen; and
3) practicing our responses to such comments, because the best way to handle inappropriate language is to be prepared to do so!

Classroom Conversations on Race: A Panel Discussion

Classroom Conversations on Race: A Panel Discussion

Thursday, March 28, 2019 - 3:30 pm to 5:00 pm

Panelists: Carissa Froyum (Sociology), Abbylynn Helgevold (Philosophy & World Religions), Gaetane Jean-Marie (Dean, College of Education), Ana Kogl (Political Science)

Hear a panel of your colleagues share perspectives on navigating difficult conversations about race in UNI classrooms and other learning spaces. Fresh on our minds are 1) the recent decision at the University of Iowa to cancel a workshop focused on white privilege, 2) a dispute at Augsburg College over the use of the n-word in class and 3) transparency concerns at UNI related to the hosting of rap artist Waka Flocka.

These stories are not isolated, and these issues are very present in our daily lives in higher ed. How can UNI teachers, in classrooms and meetings, best address the discomfort, missteps and strong feelings that attend conversations about race? How can we help frame the dialogue with sensitivity, and as an opportunity to move forward in productive ways?

An additional panel on this topic will take place on Wednesday, April 3. Watch for more information in the April CETL calendar.

Diversity Colloquium: Family Separation: The Impact of Immigration Policy on Children & Families

Diversity Colloquium: Family Separation: The Impact of Immigration Policy on Children & Families

Thursday, March 28, 2019 - 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm

Presenter: Maria Alcivar, Iowa State University, Human Development and Family Studies

A total of 5 million children in the U.S. have at least one parent who is undocumented/unauthorized, living in the U.S. without proper documentation. These families live in constant fear of detention and deportation due to archaic immigration policies that fail to reflect demographic changes over time. The last major immigration legislation in the U.S dates to 1996, and it was not intended to support families but instead create more restrictions and penalties. Nevertheless, immigrants, with or without status, have become an integral part of the U.S. as workers, families, entrepreneurs, taxpayers and neighbors. But what do we know about the interaction between immigration policy and child welfare? What is the short- and long-term impact of archaic immigration laws on children and families? What is the overall public health impact of anti-immigrant policies?

Sponsored by the Department of Sociology, Anthropology & Criminology, the CSBS, the Office of the President and the CETL.
